Black on White Crimes; Racism or Domestic Violence or Both??
Apart from the usual toll of white women dying at the hands of their black significant others this month, we count two road-rage cases, one Drug Deal Gone Wrong and one possible home invasion. Plus one killing at a gas station—gas stations continue to be dangerous places in Black-Run America.
It’s notable that Kevin Sobnosky, Anthony Vitelli, and Britney Bohannon seem to have been killed by blacks who weren’t even shooting at them, but just generally shooting.

“When I’ve been completely incognito, during the eight years in the White House, walking the dogs on the canal, people will come up and pet my dogs, but will not look me in the eye,” Obama said. “[It’s] so telling of how White America views people who are not like them. You know, we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that’s exhausting” [ Michelle Obama Says She Felt ’Invisible’ To White People Even As First Lady, Essence, December 6, 2020].
So, if white people don’t look at blacks, it’s evidence of white racism. If they do look at blacks, whites get shot because (ahem) blacks do, in fact “exist as a threat” [Victim in Hampton Inn shooting identified by Berkeley County Coroner, by James Gatlin, abcnews4.com, Oct 31, 2022].

These other charges don’t relate to the death of Malet—at the time of her death he was already in custody for an assault on two teen girls:
Butler had already been apprehended on eight charges including armed robbery, kidnapping, and sexual assault of two Prattville teens.
“[Butler] faces two counts of rape in the first degree, one for each girl, two counts of sodomy in the first degree,” explained CJ Johnson, District Attorney for the 19th Judicial Circuit Court. “He has two counts of kidnapping in the first degree. And then, he has one count of robbery in the first for money he took from one girl, and he has one count of sexual torture for acts he committed against one of the girls.”
According to District Attorney for the 2nd Judicial Circuit Court, Charlotte Tesmer, Butler encountered the teens at a Prattville Walgreens on November 3 at approximately 8:30 p.m. Butler produced a firearm, demanded money, and ordered the victims at gunpoint into their vehicle, a 2008 Honda Pilot.
The victims were taken into Lowndes County, where Butler sexually assaulted both girls. They were then ordered to drive him to Montgomery, where he stopped and was captured on video at a Southern Boulevard gas station.
