Boswell intruder is identified
Three days ago, I wrote about the incident at Rep. Leonard Boswell’s Iowa farm:
There is no description of the intruder, other than that he is an “armed man.” Given that this armed and dangerous individual is at large, why does the Courier not describe him? Have you ever heard of a local newspaper reporting about an armed and dangerous man—a criminal who has attacked people and is likely to attack again, a criminal whose description is readily available from the people whom he has already attacked—that does not provide a physical description of him? I’m not jumping to any conclusions about the characteristics of the criminal in this case. What I’m saying is that the contemporary news media’s policy of withholding physical descriptions of criminals, which is done in order to cover up the true degree of black criminality in our society, results in a failure to give necessary physical descriptions even when the criminal is not black.In that same entry, a commenter pointed out that it was unlikely that the intruder was black, given that there are few blacks in Iowa, and that he was probably Hispanic, of whom there are many in Iowa.
As it turns out, both I and the commenter were wrong. The immediate reason there was no description of the intruder was that, as reported in yesterday’s Des Moines Register, he wore a ski mask. And the intruder was not Hispanic, but black. The article shows these photos of the still at-large intruder, David Dewberry, and of his getaway driver, Cody Rollins, who has been arrested. Note how the paper puts the white getaway driver first, and the actual intruder to the right, not making it clear in the caption that it was the latter who was the intruder:
Cody Rollins, 19 (left) was arrested in the case late Monday night in a
weekend home invasion at the farmhouse of Rep. Leonard Boswell,
D-Iowa. David Dewberry (right), 20, of Nebraska, is still being sought.
The sheriff said Dewberry used to live in the Lamoni area, and his mother was a friend of Boswell’s wife, Dody. Dewberry and his mother had been invited to the Boswell home several times, Muir said. “He knew his way around the farm. I think he knew a little bit about what the house looked like.”I’m reminded of Rudy Guede, the black African immigrant in Perugia, Italy, who was invited several times to parties in an apartment of male students in the same house where Meredith Kercher and Amanda Knox also had their apartment. Then he came back to rob the girls’ apartment, and murdered Meredith.
Also, based on Dewberry’s light complexion and his black-sounding surname, there is a good chance his mother, the friend of Rep. Boswell’s wife, with whom Dewberry visited the Boswell farm, is white. Rudy Guede, after his father returned to the Ivory Coast, was informally adopted by a white Italian man who took care of him, but then Guede went downhill and became a criminal.
Here is the article
Leon, Ia.—The young man who allegedly attacked Congressman Leonard Boswell and his family in their home Saturday night is the son of a family friend, authorities said today.James P., who sent the article, writes:
That explains how Boswell could wrestle with the guy without getting shot—it was only a BB gun.LA replies:
But it wouldn’t explain how he didn’t get shot with the BB gun.

In the first two days of the story, they didn’t even report that the intruder was wearing a face-covering mask. Nor did they think of saying, “No description of this armed and dangerous person is available, because he was wearing a mask that covered his face.” Why such weird journalistic behavior? It goes back to my initial observation. Because of the huge number of black criminals in our society and the media’s need to cover up this fact, the once-time automatic practice of describing criminals has been dropped, even when the perpetrator is not black. The new ethos goes so far that even if there is a non-racial reason for not providing a description, e.g., the perpetrator was wearing a mask, the press does not think of telling readers about that.Karl D. writes:
Is it just me or does this Dewberry character bear a striking resemblance to our current president? I keep a loaded Mossberg 500 shotgun next to my bed for this very scenario. Some people (mostly liberals) think I am being paranoid. But when you live alone in the sticks like I do it just makes common sense. In fact, not too long ago there was a weirdo trying peoples doors in my area. A State trooper came by to ask if I had seen anything. I didn’t and told him I was armed, so God help him if he tried to break in while I was home. He didn’t say, “Call us first” or “Be careful with that,” or any other patronizing liberal cliché you would expect. He simply said, “Good for you. I wish more folks were armed.” It made me feel very good to be treated as a rational and responsible adult rather then a foolish child.
