CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Performer Leigh Raven, who maintains she was subjected to “violent acts of sexual assault” during a March 6 shoot for a website called BlackPayback.com, does not plan to take the alleged perpetrators to court, she told AVN.

Raven on March 7 met with a detective from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Sexual Assault Investigation unit to report her encounters during the shoot, which was helmed by Just Dave, with Rico Strong serving as the male talent and production assistant Tofu acting in an introductory non-sex role. The evidence gathered in relation to Raven’s claims was presented on April 18 to the L.A. District Attorney, who declined to file any criminal charges in the matter, according to Ruben Arellano, LAPD sexual assault crimes coordinator for the Devonshire area, where Raven’s report was taken.

Without the possibility of pressing criminal charges, Raven’s only legal recourse was to file a civil suit, which she indicated at least once via social media that she intended to do. However, she has now reconsidered.

“I do not plan to file a civil suit,” Raven said. “I had many attorneys hear my story and offer to take my case because they firmly believed I have one … but I don’t want money. I want people like Just Dave removed from the porn community. I don’t believe pursuing a lengthy trial will do any good … I have come to terms with what has happened and I know in my heart the truth, that’s all I need. I have seeked therapy and am moving on.”

The issue lying at the heart of this case, of course—one that’s continually been a hot-button topic in and around the adult industry for several years running—is the labyrinthine, highly delicate minefield of consent. Raven has steadfastly insisted that hers was procured on this set via tactics of deception and intimidation, despite no outward appearance of such in the evidence presented by both her and Just Dave. Is it possible for someone to violate a performer’s consent while remaining technically shielded from legal liability?

Contended Raven, “As far as Rico is concerned, I think he and all men on that set are ignorant to what consent is. Rico kept apologizing to me the entire time on set ‘I hate doing these scenes.’ Why? Because he knows something about it is wrong … but it pays his rent, so he continues to do them. Morally his head is in the wrong place. Is he a bad person? I don’t know.” [Ed. note: Strong previously gave AVN comments refuting Raven’s claims here.]

She makes no bones, though, about who she holds ultimately responsible for the events of March 6: “I believe blame for my incident and the many others out there lies on ‘Just Dave.’ He is knowingly tricking girls into what they think is a ‘rough scene’ and leaving them physically and emotionally broken.”

She submitted, “I received about a dozen DMs and emails from women in the industry telling me they experienced the same thing on the same set … but didn’t want to come forward in fear of losing work. I have written proof/photos of their injuries but I will not ‘out’ a girl who doesn’t feel comfortable coming forward … and at this point, I don’t blame them.”

But as someone who has herself directed a handful of scenes on the hard-edged side, how would she have handled this shoot differently if the tables were turned? ”Currently, anybody in our industry can be a ‘director.’ That’s a problem,” Raven offered. “My wife [Nikki Hearts] and I have stopped many scenes to ‘check in’ on talent when they seem the slightest bit uncomfortable. We realize that when you’re in the middle of a scene at times it can be hard to speak up. Directors need to be present, compassionate and aware. I honestly don’t know what a working solution is to avoid these issues. Background checks are a good start.”

For his part, Just Dave countered, “First of all, there was no ‘incident’ on set. On any professional shoot the people behind the camera, and in front of the camera, must respect all stated boundaries and matters concerning consent at all times. We also have a duty, for the sake of everyone concerned, to define terms and boundaries by being as clear as possible with what is expected. On that set we followed these rules without exception.

“I do not trick anyone into working for me,” he avowed. “In this particular instance, the male talent was friends with her, contacted her and told her about the scene. After she enthusiastically accepted the gig, my production assistant called her and again described the scene in detail, clearly identifying the nature of the scene. Once she arrived on set, my production assistant again spoke to her about the scene. At this stage, if a performer shows discomfort or has any issue with the requirements of a scene we send them home. But she again agreed.

“Then, with the cameras rolling I went through the requirements of the scene one more time,” he added. “I personally went point-by-point in detail what the scene was about and obtained her clear consent. The video shows us determining her ‘do’s and don’ts’ in great detail, and explaining that the procedure for having filming stop if ever she felt uncomfortable for any reason was merely to say ‘stop,’ ‘don’t’ or ‘cut.’ As you can see in the video, I emphasized this. And as the video clearly shows, at no time did she ever complain of inappropriate behavior, or ask for the scene to stop or the cameras to cut.”

Asked why she believes the DA declined her case, Raven said, “It’s a fucking difficult case. The general public doesn’t know anything about porn and the proper procedures that go into making a comfortable experience for all parties involved in the production of a scene.”

She continued, “My investigator told me (after reviewing the footage) she believed it was a borderline ‘snuff film’ and it was ‘difficult to watch’ but unfortunately ‘there is no criminal law against crying in a porn scene’ (which was my main defense when I was asked, ‘If you didn’t say no, what can I look for to determine you were uncomfortable or not okay with what was happening?’).”

In a statement she made April 12 in response to one from Just Dave, et al refuting her claims, Raven asserted that the day after giving her account to the LAPD investigator, “I realized that filing a police report was not going to accomplish my goal. I don’t want money, I don’t seek revenge, I don’t even necessarily want anyone to be jailed!”

What she was hoping for—and continues to, she says now—was one thing: “I want this production to be shut down. This is not what porn is, and I hope no other girl has to endure the hell I have been through. I don’t seek revenge. I was simply telling my truth and felt morally obligated to do so. I have an impeccable reputation in this industry; why throw it away for a ‘lie.’ Both my wife and I have lost work, received mysterious death threats, and had our integrity questioned.

“I’m exhausted with this entire situation and can go on for hours about every detail and prove that I am telling the truth … but why is the victim even being questioned? I want to move on … I already know I’ve done the right thing, but I just hope bringing this situation to light has helped someone, anyone … and if it has I’ve done my job.”

SOCIALIST ACTIVIST WHO HARASSED HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY WORKS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

One of the activists who chased Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night over the Trump administration’s immigration policies is an employee of the Department of Justice, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed.

Members of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Nielsen’s meal with a demonstration full of chants and other outbursts.

One of those participants, Allison Hrabar, actually works for the Trump administration — as a paralegal in the DOJ.

“Kirstjen Nielsen, you’re a villain, locking up immigrant children,” activists can be heard saying in a video.

An employee within the Trump administration initially tipped TheDCNF off about Hrabar’s presence at the protest.

The Washington Examiner spoke with Hrabar Wednesday and she defended her behavior as off government time and a use of her First Amendment rights. (RELATED: ‘Fascist Pig!’ — Chanting Socialists Chase DHS Secretary Nielsen Out Of Mexican Restaurant)

“If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace,” she told The Examiner. “We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do.”

Despite Hrabar’s claims of keeping her personal politics outside of her time as an employee of the federal government, a look at her Twitter account, @allisongeroi, features tweets during the workday openly celebrating her behavior Tuesday night.

“Keeping families together in jail is not an acceptable solution,” Hrabar tweeted Wednesday afternoon at 1:56 PM.

Following the protest, Hrabar tweeted that, “No one who has ever made their living terrorizing immigrants deserves peace. If you see one in a restaurant, at a movie, or in your neighborhood, remind them of that.”

Hrabar has worked at the DOJ since July 2016. Prior to that, she was a student at the selective Swarthmore College where tuition runs over $50,000 annually. She previously attended a charter school in Arizona.

A Justice Department official, after being asked about Hrabar’s conduct, told TheDCNF that she cannot comment on personnel issues.

Judge green-lights parent’s lawsuit against public school teaching ‘Islam is the true faith’

A federal judge has refused to toss out a lawsuit brought by a parent against the Chatham, New Jersey, school district, which showed seventh-graders a pro-Muslim video that included an invitation to convert to the “true faith.”

In denying the school district’s motion to dismiss the case, U.S. District Court Judge Kevin McNulty said the motion was worth only “minimal discussion.”

 

Kate Oliveri, an attorney with Thomas More Law Center, is representing Libby Hilsenrath, whose 12-year-old son attends Chatham Middle School. Oliveri said the decision to let the lawsuit proceed came as no surprise.

“The motion to dismiss was a further attempt by the school district to bully and silence Mrs. Hilsenrath,” she said. “The school district ignored the legal standard and ignored the facts, attempting instead to fool the judge with a poor attempt at sophistry.”

The lawsuit claims that seventh-grade students at the Chatham Middle School were forced to watch a set of videos in their World Cultures and Geography class that sought to convert them to Islam. Here is a sampling of what the students learned by watching just one of the 5-minute videos:

  • God gave Muhammed the noble Quran
  • The Quran is a Perfect guide for Humanity
  • The Quran is divine revelation
  • Islam is a shining beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance and racism
  • The Beautiful Quran is Guidance for the wise & sensible.

Then came the topper. The video ends with this: “May God help us all to find the true faith, Islam.”

Man Arrested For Killing His Wife for Refusing to Abort Their 7-Month-Old Unborn Baby

A crisis across the world, yet another man has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife and unborn baby after she refused to have an abortion.

The man, identified as Seenivasan, 24, of Poovanur, India was arrested Thursday by police in Rishivandhiyam, India, according to the Times of India.

Police said Seenivasan initially reported his wife as a missing person, but they arrested him after he gave conflicting testimony. The young man later admitted to strangling his wife to death after she refused to abort their unborn baby, according to police.

His wife, Jeyanthi, 21, was seven months pregnant with their unborn child, the report states.

Allegedly, Seenivasan forced his wife to abort three unborn babies during their three-year relationship, not counting the fourth who died along with Jeyanthi earlier this month.

Here’s more from the report:

In May 2018, when for a fourth time Jeyanthi was 6 months pregnant, her parents came to know of the pregnancy and got her married to Seenivasan. However, the man’s parents were opposed to the marriage due to Jeyanthi’s poor financial condition and refrained from talking to their son.

Upset over the strained relationship with his parents for the past month, Seenivasan began demanding Jeyanthi to abort the foetus again and return to her parents, divorcing him. He had also decided to marry a girl of his parents’ choice to appease them.

When Jeyanthi refused to budge, Seenivasan decided to murder her. According to his confession to the police, on June 15th, he took her to a nearby forest in the pretext of visiting a temple there, strangled her using her saree and abandoned the body.

Police said Seenivasan is being charged with murder. The report does not indicate if he will be charged in the deaths of both his wife and unborn child.

Violence against pregnant women and their unborn babies is disturbingly common. LifeNews has reported numerous crime stories where men allegedly murdered or attempted to murder their pregnant partners after they refused to abort their unborn babies.

In the United States, one in six women is first abused during pregnancy, according to the Centers for Disease Control. As LifeNews previously reported, one study found that as many as 64 percent of post-abortive women say they felt pressure to have an abortion.

LifeNews has reported countless crime stories involving pregnant women who have been threatened, assaulted or killed, sometimes after they refused to abort their unborn babies.

In September 2016, police arrested a Tennessee man after his pregnant girlfriend accused him of kicking and hitting her when she told him that she would not abort their baby.

Then, in 2017, a Hawaii jury convicted a man of murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend after prosecutors said he stabbed her to death for refusing to abort their unborn child. It does not appear that there were any charges in connection to the unborn child’s death in the case.

Also in 2017, a California jury found a man guilty of first- and second-degree murder after he allegedly hired a hitman to kill his pregnant girlfriend and their unborn son after she refused to have an abortion.

And earlier this week, news reports out of Pakistan detailed how a girl died along with her unborn baby after her abuser allegedly forced her to have an abortion.

Others have used sneakier methods to force women to abort their unborn babies. Earlier this year, a Virginia doctor was convicted of spiking his pregnant girlfriend’s drink with an abortion drug, killing their unborn baby. Dr. Sikander Imran was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to fetal homicide.

Many pro-life advocates are concerned that these abuses could grow worse if abortion activists succeed in forcing pharmacies to dispense abortion drugs or allowing them to be distributed by mail-order. The ACLU and Hawaiian abortion activists are suing the federal government in a case that could force every pharmacy in America to sell dangerous abortion drugs.

Virginia Tech teacher named Mark Neuhoff’s Asian wife, Thaomy, makes White Nationalist, White supremacist comments on Facebook

June 2018 Edit: it actually turned out that Mark’s wife, a mentally ill Asian woman, wrote the comments demanding for white supremacy and denying the holocaust; she was banned from campus. Like this makes it any better. It probably just makes it even worse.

Relevant /r/hapas thread.

In either case it was either:

  • Mark saying those things
  • or his Asian wife saying those things

Pick which one is worse for biracial kids

Protip: they’re fucked either way


What else is new? Half Asian children can be very high risk, due to being raised by extreme racists and rejected, unattractive men who even hate Asians – yet rely on Asian women as a way to validate their existential crises in the face of global change.

Racist, rejected, anti-social white men (who are generally lonely and socially rejected and whereby blame “Jewish influence” or modernism) heavily rely on self-hating Asian women as a way to prove their superiority over “modernism” and “change;” being unable to control “degenerate” society and hoping for White women to ensure White supremacy, these same racist white men deliberately target Asian women, who they view as “supportive” of white supremacy due to their “traditional, non-slutty values.”

White men that are rejected by white women (for physical or emotional or social defects) – who they view as “race traitors” to a white ethnostate in which white men are valued and respected – use Asian women, who they view as chaste, traditional, family-oriented women that appreciate a good white man – despite his racist beliefs, or in fact, in full support.
