Embarrassing Truths: An Example of Why You Shouldn't Trust Wikipedia

Permalink | Print

As I've mentioned before, Wikipedia's editors have strong leftist and statist biases. This is evidenced by the way that they selectively delete content and gradually push the Point of View (POV) of articles to match their world views.

According a SurvivalBlog reader in Switzerland, the following section was deleted from Wikipedia by members of an anti-gun Wikipedia cabal on August 14, 2013. (It had been part of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns article):

Members convicted of illegal activity
 
Some members of MAIG have been convicted of crimes. They include:
 
Baltimore, Maryland - Mayor Sheila Dixon
 
Hartford, Connecticut - Mayor Eddie Perez
 
Racine, Wisconsin - Mayor Gary Becker
 
East Haven, Connecticut - Mayor April Capone Almon

Detroit, Michigan - Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick

Guttenberg, New Jersey - Mayor David Delle Donna
 
Jackson, Mississippi - Mayor Frank Melton

Passaic, New Jersey - Mayor Samuel Rivera

Austin, Texas - Mayor Will Wynn
 
Jersey City, New Jersey - Mayor Jerremiah Healy
 
Birmingham, Alabama - Mayor Larry Langford
 
Inglewood, California - Mayor Roosevelt F. Dorn
 
White Plains, New York - Mayor Adam Bradley

Port St. Lucie, Florida - Mayor Patricia Christensen

Hamilton, New Jersey - Mayor John Bencivengo

Brownsville, Texas - Mayor Pat Ahumada
 
Monticello, New York - Mayor Gordon Jenkins

JWR Adds: Never mentioned in the Wiki article was the fact that there are charges pending against at least seven other members of their "crime fighting" organization:

Marcus Hook Mayor James 'Jay' Schiliro. (The "furnishing alcohol to a minor" charge was just dropped on a technicality, but he still faces misdemeanor charges of official oppression, recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint and false imprisonment, in a bizarre incident where he tried to force a young man to have homosexual relations, at gunpoint.)

Trenton Mayor Tony Mack

Spring Valley, New York Mayor Noramie Jasmin

Coaldale Mayor Richard P. Corkery (Still no formal charges, after two years!)

Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe

West New York Mayor Felix Roque

Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins

And a couple more have left office without formal charges:

San Diego Mayor Bob "Filthy" Fillner

Morristown Mayor Donald Cresitello

And then there are those who have shamelessly refused to leave office, despite clear proof of criminal and unethical behavior:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

Portland Mayor Sam Adams

East Orange Mayor Robert Bowser

...among others. - J.W.R.
