6 Arrested After Disturbance in Court over Teen’s Sentence for Rape

Taylor Dungjen, Toledo Blade, November 29, 2012

A courtroom disturbance exploded into what an official described as a riot after six people reacted to a teenager’s sentence on a rape conviction Wednesday in the Lucas County Common Pleas courthouse.

All six people were charged with varying counts of aggravated rioting, menacing, petty theft, and resisting arrest, and one woman was additionally charged with assaulting a police officer. {snip}

The suspects were described by court officials as family members and supporters of Anthony Mitchell, 16, sentenced to 21 years in prison by Judge Linda Jennings.


The incident began after Mitchell was sentenced in Judge Jennings’ courtroom. Several of Mitchell’s family members, including his father, became upset after the sentence was announced and “began to cause a disturbance,” police wrote in an incident report. {snip}

Court security escorted the group from the third floor of the courthouse to the grounds outside, where the suspects became more agitated and were placed under arrest, police said. Before being escorted out, some of the suspects yelled profanities and made physical threats to the 23-year-old victim in the case, police Sgt. Joe Heffernan said.


The suspects also are accused of cursing at and making threats to Toledo police officers and Lucas County sheriff’s deputies, Sergeant Heffernan said.

“It turned into a little bit of a riot,” he said.

Police Detective Shelli Kilburn was physically assaulted during the skirmish. Ms. Nieto is accused of jumping on her back. {snip}

Officials said that, during the assault, one or more of the suspects grabbed Detective Kilburn’s keys and ran off with them. Authorities said they were thrown into a bush, resulting in the petty-theft charges.


Mitchell, 16, of 5364 Glenridge Dr. previously had entered a plea to aggravated robbery with a gun specification and to rape. He and co-defendant Kenneth Moore, 19, of 801 Magnolia were convicted of raping a woman at gunpoint after going to her apartment and asking that she buy candles for a fund-raiser.

Authorities said the two teens would go to residences and businesses to sell candles.

The victim saw the two at the door of her Ryan Road apartment on July 16, where she declined to buy any candles. Authorities said the victim was asked by Moore to use her bathroom and “against her better judgment,” she allowed him inside.

The victim was forced at gunpoint to strip out of her clothing and, after being threatened that they were going to have sex with her, was forced to perform oral sex on both defendants.

Moore was sentenced Nov. 7 to 23 years in prison.

Mitchell was sentenced to 10 years in prison for both rape and aggravated burglary plus an additional one year for a gun specification. {snip}

    “Mitchell was sentenced to 10 years in prison for both rape and
    aggravated burglary plus an additional one year for a gun specification”

    One year extra for gun possession during a crime? I thought it was an instant 10 years added if you posses a gun during a crime.

    • libertarian1234

      Actually, he was sentenced to 21 years in prison, 20 for the rape and one for the gun, to run consecutively.

      The above reporter leads her story by alluding to a 21 year sentence, but down further says he got 11.

      Journalism schools for years now are more concerned with installing white guilt than teaching good news reporting.

      I went to another paper that reported on the story and the reporter there said Mitchell got 21 years.

      • C_C_Conrad

        Me, I’d give him 21 minutes.

      • Plus, there is that tendency to hire black reporters and assign them to black crime cases. Often, you end up with articles writeten as if the reporter was speaking English as a second language (as they are.)

        • Katherine McChesney

          They must be playing the game; good black/bad black by using black journalists. You know, trying to present ‘fair and balanced’ news.

    • Joseph

      This would depend on the state. This was not a federal case. Perhaps you were confusing some of the federal gun sentences.

  • Bobbala

    They must not even have the capacity to feel ashamed.

    • Svigor

      They don’t. Race-realism 101.

    • WhiteFalcon1

      …not even when they kill another black!

  • [Guest]

    We’re fast becoming a nation of savages, and there’s no way to stop it.

    • Oh, there is a way, several to be sure. One problem is that the White community is divided against itself, and another is that we don’t have the sheer will to take the necessary steps to solve the problem.

      • Lorin

        You are absolutely right.The white race has turned into it’s own worst enemy. The vast majority of whites absolutely refuse to acknowledge what is happening and simply will not support white interest.

    • Frank

      There is always a way to stop this kind of behavior, but we will have to get over diversity and PC first.

      • C_C_Conrad

        I call it rule 308.

  • “Authorities said the victim was asked by Moore to use her bathroom and “against her better judgment,” she allowed him inside.” I’d wager the vic was White. Not wanting to be labeled a “racist”, she let emotion dictate her actions instead of logic. Of course, the fambly will blame the victim, never the honor students/aspiring rappers.

    • Indiana Guy

      Yes, just as in the Zimmerman case, blacks always consider the white victim of a black aggressor /criminal a bad person. If the victim is white then the black criminal is always supported by them. This is an outright race war.

      • pcmustgo

        I’ve heard blacks say white women are all a bunch of liars and are fraudulently accusing black men of rape, en masse…. always a conspiracy theory.

        • ATBOTL

          All children in America for the last 20 years at least have had to read “To kill a Mockingbird,” a fictional book about a white woman falsely accusing a black man of rape, in school. So this idea is endorsed by the US government. Conservatives have done nothing about it.

    • sarah stein

      Of course she’s white, as only white women are stupid enough to open the door to unknown black males. They believe the media tripe of all white men being evil and all black men being noble and the hilarious Broadview Secruity commercials where all the home invaders are white. Fortunately some don’t live long enough to produce more stupid white women.

    • Dr. X

      Never open the door for a Bantu unless you have a .357 in your back pocket. Even then, you only open it to say “Get the hell off of my property or I’ll call the cops.”

  • Daisy

    I’d like to know the ethnicity of the victim…and whether the family members were yelling ‘Racist!’ while they rioted…maybe Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus can get Eric Holder to step in and explain that this crime is nothing compared to what ‘his people’ suffered…

  • Frank

    The family that preys together can and should go to jail together. They each should get at least 5 years.

  • razorrare

    What was the race of the victim?
    The perps and their family supporters should all be put down like the rabid dogs they all are.

  • JackKrak

    No, no, no – they were just expressing their emotions in the tradition of their community, which is often misunderstood by the traditional white patriarchy. Their actions must be viewed through the prism of white privilege and the legacy of slavery before being judged by Euro-centric white males. A wise latina would be better able to objectively evaluate what happened in the courtroom, and we should suspend judgement until the Just-Us Department has had a chance to look at the situation so that they can tell us what to think.

      Or your nose.

    • Svigor

      No need for neck hairs when it comes to blacks. Just don’t open the door for them, much less let them in, period.

      PC makes you stupid. “Anti-racism” (AKA, “anti-white racism”) makes you stupid.

  • Ulick

    One day I was watching “The Top 10 Courtroom Outbursts” on Tru TV (The most race-realist station on TV). Of the Top 10 courtroom outbursts, probabably about eight of them were from blacks, and all the most violent outbursts were from blacks.

    In one case a black guy in his 20s killed a 69 year old white man that was walking his dog. No motive other than the victim being white. Both the extended families of the victim and the murderer were in the courtroom. When the black man was found guilty his relatives got in a huff and one shouted out, “The guy was 69. How much longer did you expect him to live, anyway?” A melee then ensued as the daughter of the murdered white man tried to attack the classless black woman.

    • I remember that case. The black knuckle-daggers weren’t just in an emotional state, because you could see they actually believed what they were saying made perfect sense.

    • MekongDelta69

      That’s a good example of race realism TV. However, I’ve found one and only one that’s better. It’s called the “First 48”.

      I’ve seen scores and scores of episodes and unless I’ve suddenly been struck with a complete loss of memory, all but one episode dealt with either black or brown criminals (75-80% black and 20-25% brown).

      Don’t bother watching “Cops” because even the producer admitted that he’s always gone out of his way to not portray too many black or brown criminals. (He said this in an interview.)

      • Harcore Pawn is the best. Our blacks at their “best behavior”

  • AutomaticSlim

    She let them use the bathroom…
    Of course she should never have even opened the door.
    Why would a young girl do that?
    A horrible and very avoidable tragedy.

    I don’t even open my door unless I know who is on the other side.
    Especially if it is a black.

    • She opened the door because she has been conditioned by the media owned by those that cannot be named that these f*ucking animals are just like us.

    • WhiteFalcon1

      LOL…the dogs bark and oddly there’s no-one AT the door when I get there! Hmmmm…a good dog is far better than any security company or police, that a gun in each hand!

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    Africa in the courtroom, Africa on the grounds outside… Africa in jail. I see the silver lining here, not just one additional spot was taken in jail for Africa that day… seven were. I love when Africa gets African in courtrooms.

    • StillModerated

      Black perps need to be given the option of a trial in Africa. Once there, they get no right of return to the USA. Stripping them of their rights will become merely a matter of closing all our embassies on that continent.

      • Brian

        I’d love it if a law were passed that anyone rioting in support of violent crime was not only considered for having their citizenship removed, but instantly banned for life from voting, welfare and state housing.

      • Katherine McChesney

        They brag about being Pharoahs, Egyptian royalty. We should ship them back to Egypt where they can enjoy their fake history. Certain the muslims will teach them a thing or two since they’re threatening to destroy the Sphinx.

        • Anon66

          I just want to correct an error here. Te original homelands of Caucasians were Europe, Western Asia and Africa north of the Saharra(whites living in the south during the ice age) Even today the Census bureau uses this as one definition of a Caucasian. Africa is 3x the size of the US and the Negro race was a small group on the West coast of Africa. It wasn’t until 1k BC, about 3k years ago that any were found in East Africa.Anyone who is old enough was always taught that ancient Egypt was a Caucasian civilisation and was always included in Western Civilisation as were the areas to the north like Babylon etc. What you see today are the changes that took place over a few thousand years. Much like Detroit now being 90% black over a short period of time.

  • Am I not mistaken that one of the perps looks white? When will white girls learn that dating black men will be a disaster.

    • Oil Can Harry

      She’s not white. Her name is Sonia Nieto and she’s one of those conservative Latinas with family values that the neocons say are just dying to join the Republican party.

  • StillModerated

    FYI, Judge Jennings is white, as is Officer Kilburn. So this is clearly racism for five out of the 6 pictured above. I have no clue about the woman on the bottom right.

    The sentences will probably become deflated Louis Farrakhan mathematics wherein 23 years will magically become 10, and the 10 year stretch will become time served, or 6 months. I favor the whip, branding and exile to Goma Congo.

    • ATBOTL

      She’s a tri-racal Puerto Rican. Toledo and other cities in Ohio have them.

      • Svigor

        “Bi-racial,” “tri-racial,” and such are misnomers. There are no such things. When you mix two or three races, you don’t get children with two or three races, you get children of no race; each is a new concoction and shares its race with no one.

        Mutts and mongrels have no breed.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      I believe that there was one of them who had a Spanish last name, She is a good possibility.

  • Svigor

    Anyone want to guess what your IQ is when you’re so dumb you rape a woman in an apartment building where you’ve been knocking on all the doors soliciting sales?

    70 or so?

    • MekongDelta69

      You’re being generous…

      • WhiteFalcon1

        very……unless of course, you forgot the decimal in front of that 7…then your right on, right on, right on!

    Welcome to the third world. These people do not belong here and nothing anyone can say will ever convince me otherwise.

  • bubo

    Few blacks get to go to a graduation, so an outburst during a sentencing is the next best thing.

    • Flossie

      Have you ever seen how blacks conduct themselves at a graduation ceremony? Shameless. Literally shameless.

      • LaSantaHermandad

        Trust me. I watched it for 22 years. Many of the graduates did NOT earn their diploma.

  • TNB, look for more this bantu behavior in the future.

  • This reminds me of an episode in American history when a black teen was jailed after raping a white girl in an elevator. A mob of armed blacks descended on the Tulsa courthouse to protest. Fed up with black-on-white crime, and incensed at the calloused response of blacks regarding the rape, a number of white folks by-passed the rule of law and physically engaged the black community. The event is remember as the Tulsa Riot of 1921 and, if you believe the revisionist perspective, it was all due to white hatred and intolerance.

    Two years earlier a rash of black-on-white rapes prompted white servicemen stationed in Washington, DC to physically enforce a code of courtesy. Historians attribute that ‘white riot’ to frustrations after the conclusion of the First World War. That same year white intolerance for black-on-white rape and other violent crimes was felt in Chicago, Charleston, Longview, and Norfolk. (As always, historians revisit these events as evidence of mindless white racism.)

    The point being: Had this court disturbance occurred 100 years ago, the white men of Toledo may well have dismantled that city’s black neighborhoods with the outcome being a significant decrease in black-on-white rapes.

      No doubt of it.

    What sort of dolt carries a gun to sell candles door-to-door?

    • LaSantaHermandad

      “dolt” is much too kind a word for that “pinche mayate”. He must be “youth anized”. Time to take the gloves off. Anyone who commits forcible rape needs to be put to death.

        • LaSantaHermandad

          You’re a better man than I am.
          I once mentioned the need for a Government sponsored ( it won’t happen under the Obama admin) repatriation campaign. I would be glad to give a donation to send one or more back to Africa, If we gave up one year of Christmas gifts and each of us ponied up about a grand, this country would be a quasi paradise. Maybe Oprah could establish some more leadership academies in the Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Liberia . Any self hating Whites who want to join them would also be good riddance. It would be a valuable investment in our future.
          LIncoln was right. We can never live together in harmony. Too bad that mediocre, paranoid actor was able to assassinate him.

          • Ann66

            President Monroe did establish a place, it’s called Liberia on the west coast of Africa. And btw, only 10% of the new world slave trade was to the colonies of the US. The slave trade was abolished when the US was formed. In 1800 the slaves in the US were 200k, mostly just a natural increase from those brought in the 1700’s. By the end of the Civil War there were 4m (20x increase) and today 30m+. Tey call that “genocide” lol

          • LaSantaHermandad

            I never believe the census numbers when it comes to the Black population. I think there are more than 30 million. Can you picture Blacks sitting around the kitchen table filling out their census forms?

      • Joseph

        These guys will be heros in prison for sexual assault on a white woman. It’s a badge of honor in their “culture”.

  • George

    Oh? Just another “To Kill A Mocking Bird”. Where’s Lee Harper?

  • William Allingham

    She listened to liberals so she tried to demonstrate she has no prejudices and was prompt to help any fellow citizen, no matter if they are black (I would only ask for the bathroom if i needed it so they must be doing likewise -She probably thought) she hoped that by doing that more trust could be built between people of different kind.

    but she was being too arrogant by taking on account only her view, thinking that blacks should be as good as her, denying them their right to be distinctively bad.

    we see here the perniciousness of liberality THANK YOU! you have helped to ruin another life

  • Katherine McChesney

    Blacks must see rape as ‘flirting’. Especially attacks against white women.

  • WWallace

    They were SHOCKED he was found guilty as this is now a black world with Barry in charge. They then did what they all do when mental conflict arises, they chimped out.

    Choose your wives wisely. One idiot decision by her and you’ll come home to find your children harmed or killed.

  • sarah stein

    I don’t understand. On all the home security system commercials, the home invaders are all white. How could this happen.

    • StillModerated

      And the alarm company employs caring, polite bantus. Science fiction

    • LaSantaHermandad

      It’s all part of the program by the media and advertising. You seen the commercial for (I believe) ADT when the nerdy White guy encountering the Black tech. who has just finished installing the alarm system for him and his wife (he stares menacingly at the husband as he passes him) and God only knows what he also installed for the wife who is seen going up and down on her toes waving enthusiastically at the Black and smiling like a groupie at a rock star. She then locks her husband out of the house and he stands on the porch in the now darkness begging his wife to let him in. You just wanna vomit.

  • WhiteFalcon1

    Imagine that! She must have “teased them by opening her door and being kind”, right? I have never considered myself racist until recently, yet I can’t for the life of me, imagine why! With these people its never their fault that they behave like animals…and folks, things are only going to get worse from here on!

    • To not take your eyes off of a young black man who you don’t know when you’re alone with him isn’t racist, it’s common sense. When you’re sizing up if someone might pose a danger to you, check out the person’s race, the person’s sex and the person’s age. Young black men are the most dangerous to be around; old white women the safest.

      F*** the celebrate-diversity arseholes. Better to be alive and thought a racist than dead.

      • Anon66

        Even in NYC the chance of being killed by a White is like 0. The rare cases that you hear of always involves some sort of grudge of one white towards another where the killer is mentally disturbed. Stay in the better White areas if you’re a tourist and you’ll be as safe as being in Mayberry.It’s not cities that are dangerous, it’s non Whites. The FBI puts White on Black rape in the under 10 category which can mean 0 nationally.

  • Even in professional sports, blacks team up to stomp White (or nearly White) players.

  • sarah stein

    White women, don’t be racist. This is a rare occurrence, an anomaly, so continue to answer the door to strange black males. It’s the white males that you need to be wary of. Unlike with black males, if a white male is walking down the same side of the steet, you should cross the street.

    • I suppose this woman just made a mistake. She was confused & paid dearly for that. It’s life, sometimes you just don’t act optimally …

  • Michael_C_Scott

    The perps pleaded guilty. Are these six dimwits under the bizarre impression that their friends were innocent?

    The court was actually doing the two rapists a favor. By keeping them off the streets for at least another 10-11 years until they’re older, calmer and perhaps a little wiser, it has lessened their chances of being murdered by someone not very different from themselves. Life on the sex-offender’s registry will be a bit of a drag for them, but compared to pushing up daisies?

  • Michael_C_Scott

    Next question: How many of their friends will these six new defendants bring to court to stage another mini-riot at their own sentencing?

    This could end up being like a chain letter, except one that really works!
