Frederick Jefferson was found dead in jail during the night of August 31, 2018 in San Diego. He had just been sentenced to seven years in prison the previous day (August 31), for the beating and serious injury of a policemen at an event called “Patriot Picnic II”, last February 3rd.
This was the second of two such Patriot Picnics. The first one was on September 3, 2017. The goal of the patriot picnic events was to test our constitutional rights just to be in the park, display the flag and view/discuss the anti-American murals among ourselves in private. Our rights were denied both times by mobs under the threat of imminent, mass violence.
UPDATE: Preliminary finding of the coroner’s investigation was suicide by hanging. Click below for the story.
This is video of Jefferson beating the police officer, Matthew Ruggiero. Jefferson was not injured, but the officer received a broken jaw and bones broken in his face, requiring major reconstructive surgery.
The Park Supporters trying to keep us out of the park, claimed that Jefferson was not on their side, however he was marching with determination right down the middle of Logan Avenue, directly towards the corner where the patriots were expected to exit the free speech zone set up by police. When the officer interrupted him from his intended mission he became violent. The park supporters egged him on during the fight and took his side in internet posts and one person started a crowdfunding webpage for him.
At Patriot Picnic I, five of us were chased out of the park by a mob of 500 Chicano and Leftist extremists and threatened with physical violence, most prominently by the local antifa lead, “Jesse Cannon”, and a pro-illegal immigration activist, named “Mark Lane”. See the video below. Mark Lane has a black beard and Jesse Cannon a brown beard.
Jesse Cannon said (01:20)they were going to break my face and Mark Lane (00:40) yelled that the police would not always be able to protect me. At Patriot Picnic II about 60 patriots showed up and 700 park supporters assembled to prevent us from raising the American flag in the center of the anti-American, Chicano ultra nationalist park. At Patriot Picnic II, someone’s face was indeed broken.
Jefferson was reported to live at a homeless shelter provided by the Alpha Project and there is such a place in Barrio Logan a about three blocks north of Chicano Park on the 1500 block of Newton Avenue.
He said he was there for a pancake breakfast. There is a pancake place, Aunt Emma’s, but it is about 2-3 miles on the other side of Chicano Park, a long walk.
At Jefferson’s trial, a political associate of Mark Lane’s, who works for one of our state Senators, was put on the Jury. This was a pretty huge coincidence and I was shocked that he was not thrown off the jury, because he admitted working with Lane and both are political activists, likely biased in favor of the defendant.
This blogger passed a note about it to Judge Valentine that it was a corruption of the jury. The judge just banned me from the trial for my effort to inform him. Jefferson was convicted, anyway.
Jefferson showed up at the picnic angry and prepared to do violence. He may have been recruited by the extremist supporters of this anti-American and anti-police park exactly for that purpose.
After his arrest, Jefferson was identified via DNA as a suspect in a rape of an 18-year-old girl in Maryland. So, he faced another trial after this one.
An investigation into the cause of his death is ongoing.
This blogger regrets that anyone was hurt in these events or as a result of them, the policeman or his attacker, but the blame should be assigned to the fanatical, hysterical park supporters, who tremendously overreacted to a pro-American group that just wanted to exercise their right to visit a public park unmolested and exercise their constitutional rights. There were no white supremacists or threat to vandalize the murals. That was just slander, invented to help raise a violent mob against us.
Will post updates here as information becomes available.
