Jury Convicts Member of Murderous Family

Eric Adler, Kansas City Star, February 9, 2013

The 37-year-old nephew of a serial killer has been convicted of second-degree murder by a Jackson County jury, the prosecutor’s office said Saturday.

Diamond Blair is already serving 23 years in prison for other convictions.

The jury on Friday evening found Blair guilty of murder, robbery and armed criminal action in the death of Montague Kevin Ashline, 22, on June 24, 2009, outside Alps Apartments at 36th Street and Baltimore Avenue in Kansas City.

Blair, whose first arrest came when he was 6 years old, is a member of one of Kansas City’s most notorious criminal families, which includes five convicted murderers.

His uncle Terry Blair was convicted in 2008 of murdering six women along Prospect Avenue in 2004. Blair’s mother was charged with murder twice and convicted once for killing her drug-dealing boyfriend in 1989.


Long before the murder, Diamond Blair had a lengthy rap sheet. Between the ages of 12 and 16 he appeared in juvenile court for assault, stealing cars and fleeing the court’s McCune School for Boys.

In the six months before turning 16, he racked up charges in four robberies, a kidnapping and weapons violations. A judge certified him to stand trial as an adult and sent him to jail, where Blair and two others sodomized a 15-year-old boy.

  • Notice his uncle is noted black serial killer Terry Blair…even though there is no such thing as a black serial killer.

    The fambly that murders together stays together. Because…the Circuit Attorney of Jackson County is just as allergic to death penalty prosecutions as the Circuit Attorney of St. Louis City. The two most murderous jurisdictions in the state, and you’ll get an actual death penalty conviction out of either (actually both combined) often as you’ll find nuggets of gold in your box of corn flakes.

    And blacks have the audacity to complain about the death penalty being used against them too much. No, it’s more like not enough.

    “Blair, whose first arrest came when he was 6 years old…” “…Blair and two others sodomized a 15-year-old boy.” Wasn’t the writing on the wall years ago. How many 6-year-olds are arrested, and how many teenage boys sodomize another boy? If Blair was properly dealt with lives would have been saved. It’s as simple as that.

      Why is it that normal citizens can see that and judges and politicians can’t? Do they not get out or what? For God’s sake it is NOT NORMAL to be arrested at 6 and sodomizing others at 15. The genes are completely responsible. They should be given frontal lobotomies until someone finds that gene.

      And, obviously, properly dealing with him means something more than enrolling him in McCune School.

        The state should order a 90th trimester abortion.

    If the “evil” gene is ever isolated, we know which race will be overrepresented.

      I bet that’s some evidence that would be sat on.

      A gene for rapists would spread genes better in a tropical environment than a gene for spatial orientation/building would in any environment

  • LastBastionOfHope

    SHHH! Blacks can’t be serial killers just like they can’t be racist! They also don’t rape little kids!

    This stuff is only for white people. Duh.

    Those crack babies born in the 80s and 90s are becoming adults now. A whole generation of brain-damaged, homicidal maniacs are upon us. Don’t know if this is the case here or not.

    • gemjunior

      I think that it’s actually these homicidal crack maniacs you’re referring to COMBINED with the murderous, impulsive rage of the typical African variety. Imagine the dysgenic combination of both inherent violent tendency and on top of that the damage caused to the fetus by the crack mother. And then factor in low IQ and a sense of entitlement. So messed up.

      Why does it seem that the parts of the brain responsible for rape, mayhem and murder are seldom malfunctioning in this impaired race?

  • IstvanIN

    If capital punishment had been carried out 20 years earlier we wouldn’t be stuck with supporting this savage today.

    Quite frankly, anyone who commits rape or murder in prison should be put down. Even if they are not in prison for murder or rape. Too many times we hear of men who go to prison, commit some heinous crime while in prison, then get out and do the same thing on the street. Time to rid ourselves of the nonredeemable.

      Hear hear! If they want to act like wild beasts treat them as such.

    And why was this piece of dirt not aborted in the womb, along with the rest of his relatives. Here’s a poem for him:
    If you had not been born,
    There would be no victims to mourn.

    Hang him.

    Where Evil Lurks: Neurologist Discovers ‘Dark Patch’ Inside the Brains of Killers and Rapists
    Allan Hall, Daily Mail (London), February 5, 2013


    A German neurologist claims to have found the area of the brain where evil lurks in killers, rapists and robbers.

    Bremen scientist Dr Gerhard Roth says the ‘evil patch’ lies in the brain’s central lobe and shows up as a dark mass on X-rays.

    He discovered it when investigating violent convicted offenders over the years for German government studies.

    ‘We showed these people short films and measured their brain waves,’ he said.

    ‘Whenever there were brutal and squalid scenes the subjects showed no emotions. In the areas of the brain where we create compassion and sorrow, nothing happened.’

    The dark mass at the front of the brain, he says, appears in all scans of people with records for criminal violence.

    He says his researches have led him to believe that some criminals have a ‘genetic predisposition’ to violence.

    He added: ‘When you look at the brain scans of hardened criminals, there are almost always severe shortcomings in the lower forehead part of the brain.

    ‘There are cases where someone becomes criminal as a result of a tumour or an injury in that area, and after an operation to remove the tumour, that person was completely normal again.

    ‘Or there are physiological deficits, because certain substances such as serotonin in the forebrain are not working effectively.

    ‘But this is definitely the region of the brain where evil is formed and where it lurks.

    Lock him up and throw away the key. Personally, I think he and his family are candidates for mandatory sterilization.

    The sooner society accepts that human behavior is biological, the better off we will be. One day families like this will receive the appropriate cognitive interventions before any violence is had.

    What the hell is a 6 year old doing to get arrested?

    Oh hell, spay and neuter the whole bunch.

    Blair’s alibi witness, Daquetta D Davis, faces perjury charges now, too.


    Because of three prior felony convictions – two for drugs and one for first-degree robbery – she faces up to 15 years in prison, prosecutors said.

    Blair comes from criminal family so extensive that his own lawyer once said he was “born to a family of murderers.”

    His mother was charged with two murders and convicted of one. His uncle Terry Blair was convicted in 2008 of murdering six women. Other family members were also convicted murderers.

    And here’s the link to the federal felony convictions mentioned in the news article:

    Another story you would have never heard about if it were not for the tireless efforts of AmRen.

  • And they still wonder why everyone hates them.

    It probably is. . . Must be, really, when you look at the dysfunctionality and sociopath criminals in Africa (native homelands) as well as by those who immigrated (legally or not) to European nations. The surprise is that our liberals reject the genetic factor for those Blacks naturally gravitating to crime and mindless violence. Those arm-chopping mutilations, rapes, etc. by Africans fighting their tribal wars in “modern” Africa. Doubly surprising, liberals rejecting the genetic factor when you consider how liberals fall all over themselves, to manufacture excuses for Blacks’ misconduct and criminality.

  • ViktorNN

    We look at stories like this and figure that since no whites were victimized the story has mostly only value as a novelty. But actually stories like this should outrage us as much as ones where blacks murder whites.

    I mean, imagine how much we could accomplish as a country if so much of our public money didn’t have to go towards keeping one small segment of the population from terrorizing and murdering each other, as well as the rest of society.

    Every public dollar spent on controlling a feral African who is essentially unsuited for life in a modern society is a dollar that could have been spent on educating white children, curing diseases that affect white families, or simply not raised at all and left in the pockets of young white entrepreneurs.

    In the zero sum game of how taxes are spent, black dysfunction represents an economic drag that white families pay for generation after generation.

    And then they have the gall to say we’re “privileged.”

    Cursed is more like it.

      “We look at stories like this and figure that since no whites were victimized the story only has novelty value”

      Not at all. These misfits need to be dispatched as soon as possible, no matter the victim. It was only the luck of the draw and proximity that this time it was one of his own. If not caught he would eventually likely have tortured some white woman to death or engaged in some other form of black entertainment.

    Even if you have rabid Indiana Bats in your house you cannot kill them. Creatures like this Blair are just another protected species of vermin.

    Blacks possess the “mark of Cain” . . . from a Biblical perspective, they are destined to be at the bottom.
