Christina Eilman — The Reason We Fear the Dark

From Death Wish, when Kersey and Ames are watching the Old West Show in Tucson, Arizona; after the show is over, a voice on the PA can be heard. 

The voice said: 

The outlaw life seemed a shortcut to easy money… …which could buy liquor and women.  

 But there were honest men who would fight — who planted the roots that would grow into a nation.

Christina Eilman, a casualty in a nameless war

In the black community today, the outlaw life is the black way of life (a difference though: the tax-payer is on the hook for providing EBT/Food Stamps and Welfare/TANF which goes to pay for the liquor and the unwanted detritus from a hookup with a woman). 

The ruins of cities, where once the inhabitants daily actions echoed across the globe producing a prosperity never-before-seen, like Detroit in 2013 were built on the foundation of this black way of life. 


Today, the only echos heard are the sounds of police and ambulance sirens rushing to the scene of yet another black crime. 


Honest men in America can’t fight anymore; to do so would be the equivalent of suicide. 


But a story mentioned in passing here,  The Cost of Judging by Character in Chicagoland: $22.5 Million, should serve as the ultimate wake-up call about the type of civilization that has grown from the out-of-control black way of life that has proliferated with Black-Run America (BRA). 


The name Christina Eilman doesn’t mean much to your average American today, but in time, her story will be told with same vitriol and authority as that of Emmett Till, James Byrd, or even Matthew Shepard. 


Only in a society that tolerates the ruination of its major cities could the tale of Christina Eilman fall upon deaf ears; only in a society terminally ill could the injustice Christina Eilman faced not provoke the strongest reactions of… of punishment from those who hear of it. 


Punishment for those who have allowed the roots of the black way of life to grow, which have entangled cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Birmingham, and Baltimore into a frightening jungle where life is… fleeting. 


What is the “Black way of life” — Had Oxygen not cancelled Shawty Lo’s All My Babies’ Mamas, you would have seen it in a manner far more powerful then any episode of Hardcore Pawn or The First 48 could provide. 


But it’s Christina Eilman’s fate that shows us the true “Black way of life” that threatens to choke the very ability of America to compete in the global economy of today; it’s Eilman’s tale that should shame anyone reading or hearing of it to once and for all abandoning any notion of “judging by content of character” forever. 


Just who is Christina Eilman? She is a white girl that in 2006 was released by the Chicago Police Department into one of the most dangerous areas of the entire world (almost completely populated by the granddaughters and grandsons of those black people who were part of the “Great Migration”); that population of black people were allowed to proliferate by a continuous flow of tax dollars in the form of welfare, EBT/Food Stamps, and subsidized houses — particularly at the infamous Robert Taylor Homes. 


Wikipedia describes the conditions of the Robert Taylor Homes as thus:

These problems include narcoticsviolence, and the perpetuation of poverty. Planned for 11,000 inhabitants, the Robert Taylor Homes housed up to a peak of 27,000 people. 

Six of the poorest US census areas with populations above 2,500 were found there. Including children who are not of working age, at one point 95 percent of the housing development’s 27,000 residents were unemployed and listed public assistance as their only income source,[4] and 40 percent of the households were single-parent, female-headed households earning less than $5,000 per year. 

About 96 percent were African-American. The drab, concrete high-rises, many blackened with the scars of arson fire, sat in a narrow stretch of slum. The city’s neglect was evident in littered streets, poorly enforced building codes, and scant commercial or civic amenities.

Police intelligence sources say that elevated number of homicides was the result of gang “turf wars,” as gang members and drug dealers fought over control of given Chicago neighborhoods. Its landlord, the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), has estimated that $45,000 in drug deals took place daily. Former residents of the Robert Taylor Homes have said that the drug dealers fought for control of the buildings. In one weekend, more than 300 separate shooting incidents were reported in the vicinity of the Robert Taylor Homes. Twenty-eight people were killed during the same weekend, with 26 of the 28 incidents believed to be gang-related. 

On June 25, 1983, an infant, Vinyette Teague, was abducted from Robert Taylor Homes after her grandmother left her alone in the hallway for a few minutes to answer a phone call. An estimated 50 people were in the hallway at the time of the abduction, but police were unable to gather enough evidence to make any arrests. She has never been seen or heard from since

It is in this environment that Eilman, a white girl with obvious mental issues, was dropped off by the police in 2006. [The next Christina Eilman, Chicago Tribune, 8-30-2006]

A young California woman being held by Chicago police for creating a disturbance at Midway Airport exhibits erratic behavior consistent with mental health problems. By telephone, her parents plead for police to put her on a westbound airplane. Instead, police release her from a lockup at 51st Street and Wentworth Avenue–sending her alone into one of Chicago’s highest-crime areas. 

On Sunday the Tribune’s David Heinzmann told what’s emerged thus far in the terrible story of Christina Eilman: of how a gang member awaits trial for allegedly abducting and raping her after her release, of how she survived a seven-story fall from a public housing high-rise, of how she now lies–withered, semi-conscious and unlikely to fully recover–in a brain injury unit at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.


Here’s what the Chicago Tribune reported in 2006 [She begged for help

Hour after hour, Christina Eilman threw herself at the bars of her cell at a South Side police lockup, shrieking threats one moment and begging for help the next, pleading that she was ill.

Even the women in adjoining cells, many who were used to the chaos of lockup, were alarmed at Eilman’s unremitting distress. Many of them joined in, calling out to guards on Eilman’s behalf.

“I heard that girl screaming for her life, `Take me to the hospital. Call my parents,'” Tamalika Harris, 26, said in a recent interview with the Tribune. “The way she was screaming and kicking on the bars, I knew something was wrong.”

A woman in a nearby cell recalled the response of police officers: “Shut up.”

In California, Eilman’s mother was begging for help too, calling Chicago police a dozen times through the night and the following day. How could she rescue her 21-year-old daughter, who suffered from bipolar disorder, was stranded in an unfamiliar city and had been arrested after a disturbance at the airport?

Time after time, she says, police told her to call back later.

The last time Kathy Paine called on May 8, police floored her with unexpected news: Eilman had been released, walking alone out the front door of the station at 51st Street and Wentworth Avenue, into one of Chicago’s highest-crime neighborhoods.

Three hours later, Eilman plummeted from a seventh-floor window of a nearby public housing high-rise, wearing only underwear–a shock that has raised troubling questions within the Chicago Police Department about whether officers’ actions led a vulnerable woman to disaster.

A gang member is awaiting trial on charges that he abducted and raped her, but whether Eilman fell, jumped or was pushed remains a mystery.
To the amazement of those who found her crushed body, she survived. But she will never fully recover from the damage to her body and brain, her doctor said.

Eilman, once an athletic, vivacious student at the University of California-Los Angeles, now suffers through daily pain and confusion. She lives in a sort of twilight of consciousness, able to make only the most rudimentary responses, enduring frustrating therapies she can hardly comprehend.

She makes eye contact, but fleetingly. Some days she speaks a few words and appears dreamy, almost contented. Other days she writhes and moans as the pain from her injuries continues to ravage her body.

Her parents’ expectations for improvement are modest.
“We hope that she’ll be able to feed herself, and maybe go to the bathroom,” Rick Paine said.

Here’s what Chicago’s ABC affiliate reported in 2006, with a black woman – who called the Robert Taylor Homes “home” (meaning: her very existence was subsidized by the state) – telling Eilman “white and black don’t mix” as she pleaded for help: [Woman injured in fall from seventh-floor window, ABC 7 Chicago, May 11, 2006]:

A woman was injured in a fall from a seventh-floor window of a CHA building late Monday night. Police want to question a person who last seen with the victim. Officials said the victim was released from police custody a short time before the incident.

Police say the critically injured victim was found late Monday night on the ground outside the last remaining high-rise of the Robert Taylor Homes. The 21-year-old woman was dressed only in her bra and panties. Investigators believe she had either been pushed or fell from a seventh-floor window. They are still trying to determine if she had been sexually assaulted.

“Our investigation so far shows that she was with an individual who we have identified and looking for was last person seen with her. And we’re asking for the public’s help. If anybody saw anything, this would have been on Monday evening after 6:30 at night at 5135 South Side. We’re asking them to call area one,” said Philip Cline, Chicago Police Superintendent.

A long-time resident at the Robert Taylor Homes — who did not want to be identified — said earlier Monday evening, she saw the young woman in the courtyard and again outside her own apartment.

“The woman got on my floor and tried to get in apartment. I said, ‘No, white and black don’t mix,'” said one Robert Taylor Homes Resident.

 Here’s how that same paper reported the story in 2010, with those also in jail cells with Eilman testifying that the Chicago Police Department guards yelled, “Shut up white bitch,” to her as she pleaded with them for help — before they dropped her off in one of the world’s most dangerous places.

[New details of woman’s fateful fall

Records show how Christina Eilman ended up at a South Side high-rise, Chicago Tribune, 1-5-2010]:

Christina Eilman was mentally ill. 

The 21-year-old California woman hung around Midway Airport for two days, raving about the price of oil, exposing herself, making lewd comments and screaming at ticket agents, a baby and a blind man. 

Then the Chicago police took her into custody, held her overnight and released her into a high-crime neighborhood, where things turned even worse. 

On behalf of Eilman, whose plunge from a seventh-floor public-housing apartment in May 2006 has left her permanently brain-damaged, her parents are suing the city for $100 million, contending that police negligence placed her in harm’s way without the wherewithal to seek help or protection. 

Pretrial testimony and other court documents show that several officers involved in Eilman’s arrest at Midway had an ongoing discussion at the Chicago Lawn District about how to handle the woman who was behaving so strangely. One officer testified she called Eilman’s parents in California, learned that she was “probably bipolar” and then relayed the information to a watch commander and the arresting officers. 

Police Department policy requires officers dealing with mentally ill people to take them to a hospital for an evaluation. But instead of arranging transportation to a hospital, police ultimately sent Eilman miles away to the Wentworth District lockup, where multiple witnesses said jail guards dealt with her erratic and bizarre behavior by repeatedly telling her to “shut up.” One inmate testified that black officers repeatedly shouted at Eilman, calling her a “white bitch.” 

Instead of arranging transportation to a hospital, police ultimately sent Eilman miles away to the Wentworth District lockup. Rick and Kathy Paine have agonized over their own decision to stay at home, waiting by the phone for more information from Chicago police instead of jumping on a plane to come to their daughter’s aid. Kathy Paine told the Tribune in 2007 that she did not know what to do because police would give her no concrete information. 

Over nine telephone calls from Kathy Paine to the Wentworth District, she said, she was repeatedly told to call back later until an officer told her that Eilman had already been released. 

Police escorted Eilman to the back door of the Wentworth District, which also houses an area detective headquarters. She then wandered along 51st Street a few blocks east to a takeout restaurant, where men began to gather and talk to the petite blonde, who was dressed in a skimpy jogging suit. 

Witnesses said she appeared to be disoriented and behaving erratically, unable to make eye contact or track what people were saying to her. A short time later she walked to the public housing high-rise at 5135 S. Federal St., then the last remaining building of the Robert Taylor Homes. It has since been razed. 

A crowd gathered around, befuddled by the presence of an unescorted white woman in a virtually all-black, high-crime area. Eilman eventually went with a group of people to a vacant apartment on the seventh floor that residents used as a communal room. 

One resident, Melene Jones, said she repeatedly told Eilman to leave because the building was not safe for her. Several men asked Eilman to perform oral sex, but she refused, at one point saying she would jump out the window if anyone laid a hand on her, witnesses said. 

Jones said she tried to persuade Eilman to leave because she feared something bad would happen. 

“First off, because, I mean, there was nobody there with her. And second off, because she was a white girl and, I mean, it’s really unusual for a white girl to be in the building and especially by herself,” Jones testified. “If you live there, it’s cool and you know everybody and whatnot, but if you don’t and you just be there and whatnot, people, they might try to take advantage of you and whatnot.” 

Eventually, reputed gang member and convicted felon Marvin Powell entered the apartment and began trying to talk to Eilman, several witnesses said. He began trying to provoke her with sexual taunts and then demanded that everyone else leave the apartment. When Eilman tried to leave with them, Powell allegedly held her back and said to the others, “I’m gonna show this bitch who the real killa is,” according to testimony from resident Robert Kimble. 

Powell is charged with abducting and sexually assaulting Eilman. He is jailed awaiting trial. 

Eilman began screaming that Powell was going to kill her, and Powell shut the door. 

Soon, people outside did not hear any more screaming, Kimble and others said. 

About 15 minutes later, residents started running through the halls of the building in an uproar. The woman had plummeted from the window, they said, and was lying in the grass below.

Is there a hypothetical place in America where Eilman, had she been black and the community members been all-white, would have encountered a similar situation? 

No. White people would have probably made a black person with obvious mental problems walking around their neighborhood the honorary president of the homeowners association (so as not to look racist). After inviting them into their home for milk and cookies, of course. 

Is there another city in America with a majority-black area where Eilman would have encountered the exact same situation as she did in Chicago? 

Yes. 

Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, New Orleans, Jackson (MS), Shreveport, Savannah, Macon (GA), Orlando, Miami, Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. are just a few cities that spring to mind. 

Recall how the story ends.  [City to pay $22.5 million to bipolar woman released in high-crime area, Chicago Sun-Times, 1-15-13]:

Chicago taxpayers will spend $22.5 million to compensate a mentally-ill California woman who was arrested and held overnight, then released in a high-crime neighborhood, where she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted before falling from a seventh-floor window of a CHA high-rise.

An even more devastating blow to the city’s case came last spring.

That’s when a federal appeals court rejected the city’s attempt to dismiss the case and said police “might as well have released her into the lions’ den at Brookfield Zoo” when they ignored frantic calls from Eilman’s parents and allowed the young woman to leave without assistance in the high-crime neighborhood.

In the federal appeals court ruling that turned about to be the death knell of the city’s case, Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook did not mince his words in talking about the cavalier disregard that Chicago Police officers exhibited for Eilman’s safety before her release.

“She was lost, unable to appreciate her danger and dressed in a manner to attract attention,” Easterbrook wrote last spring.

“She is white and well-off while the local population is predominantly black and not affluent, causing her to stand out as a person unfamiliar with the environment and, thus, a potential target for crime.”

 This is the story of Christina Eilman, a casualty of the black way of life that has grown to became an infestation in many of our greatest cities. 

This is also a story of the type of conditions and community the black way of life created at the Robert Taylor Homes, which have now all been razed. 

Yet Christina Eilman is the enduring legacy of the type of world cultivated by black way of life, even though the Robert Taylor Housing Project is gone.

Men will arise again to plant the roots for… something else.

And it is the story of Christina Eilman, and countless others like hers, that will serve as the reminder of why this age had to come to an end.
