‘I swear I hit them! How did they survive?’

Murdered for their ‘white savior complex’

If Khari Sanford felt remorse for killing his girlfriend’s parents, Dr. Beth Potter, 52, and husband Robin Carre, 57, he didn’t show it.

Not 24 hours after the double homicide, on 03-31-20, Sanford stopped by a friend’s house “and appeared somewhat excited and frantic,” according to the criminal complaint. The informant describes him as pacing around the room and sweating. The complaint:

DF reports that Khari Sanford made a phone call to (convicted accomplice Ali’jah] Larrue that he could overhear. DF reports that Sanford said to Larrue that he had heard on the social media that one of the victims in the Arboretum shooting was in the hospital and possibly alive. DF reports that Khari Sanford said “I swear I hit them, how did they survive?” and was excessively sweating.

Their memorial obituary describes the couple as “kind, loving, gentle people with a passion for family, their chosen work and community.” Robin Carre started a higher education counseling service, volunteering his services to those unable to afford them. One of whom was Khari Sanford.

Did progressive Madison teach Sanford his sense victimhood — despite all the opportunities presented him? In his sophomore year at West high school, Sanford joined its newly formed Black Student Union just as social justice warriors, informed by critical race theory taught at the University of Wisconsin, were waging war on police.

A culture of victimization

Madison public schools had already sacrificed discipline in favor of identity politics because “A zero tolerance policy toward discipline … was having a disproportionate and negative effect on students of color.”

A dedicated practitioner of cancel culture, the school district erased name of the slave-holding Founder and renamed one of its schools after a minor black office holder. Inconveniently, Wisconsin’s capital city — founded the year that President died — retains his disgraced name.

Madison teachers learned that disciplining the wrong students ended careers. In February 2019, an 11-year-old girl at Whitehorse middle school began disrupting class. The teacher called in a “positive behavior coach” who, failing to cajole the student into behaving, tried to evacuate the rest of the students to the school library. The girl blocked the door, punched the educator in the face and broke the man’s glasses.

I’m not Fxxx-ing going anywhere, you white, bald-headed mother xxxx-er,” the girl insisted, according to the police investigation. A security camera on the other end of the dimly light hallway recorded a white man falling onto a black girl. Before police could issue their report exonerating the behavior coach, “Mr. Rob,” as he was fondly known, was pressured into resigning.

By 2020, social justice warriors capped a campaign to defund its school resource police officers by F-bombing the the school board president’s residence. The school board capitulated.

Letter from the Dane County jail

Khari Sanford himself says it was Madison schools that radicalized him as a victim. From his jail cell on 09-03-21, he wrote in longhand a letter to the judge in his trial, Ellen Berz, “to give myself the best chance of winning this case [and] to win in life.”

“Here in Madison, I realize where I stand as an African-American man in society. Growing up, I never thought that it would be me targeted, watched, and prosecuted the most. Simply because there are people who feel I don’t belong in this world pursuing my happiness, goals, and future. … I attended a Black Student Union my sophomore year at West high school. … I became very outspoken, and by my senior year, I was voted vice president. … That helped me understand my history and where I stand as an African-American man.”

At his trial this past May, Miriam Carre-Potter testified her boyfriend “felt like a slave” when her parents set rules for the couple while they lived in the family’s home. It was the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, and Dr. Potter was in charge of planning Covid protections for UW Health employees. Prosecutors asked Miriam to read aloud an on-line exchange in which she texted that her parents had a “white savior” complex.”

Sanford texted back that it was “cool” because they were “gonna die.

    “Khari Sanford was captain of the varsity football team at what was then James Madison Memorial high school.”

    Sanford was a West Regent.

    FWIW, a half-a-century ago as we speak, JMM’s Class of ’73 (GO SPARTANS!!) was beginning its FB season with The Gotch (arguably) anchoring the offensive line (coached by the legendary Bob R. Boomer Harris) from his LT position.

        “there are a few other typos too”

        Sanford should have spent more time persuing (sic) readin’, writin’, ‘rithmatic…and punctuatin’, spellin’, proper capitalization/lower case letter usage rather than victimhoodie.

      Boomer was the “enforcer” when I attended Madison Central. No one gave him any crap. Many stories abound about that great man.

        Sugar coat it for us whydoncha, Norm… But you got THAT right; the sound of those steel-heeled wing tips echoing off’n the walls got everyone’s attention.

        Heck; they tore down the school Boomer attended so they could build the Old School, am I right?

        Anywho, The Gotch’s Dear late Father used to take him to BB games at Central back in the day; anyone who uncorked one from too far outside ran the risk of having their shot rejected…by them there unforgiving girders!

        He was also friends with the très athletic Franklin clan through Jerry, the youngest; you may have known Joe and/or Larry?

      Oh yes, Coach Harris. Ended up at Central.

    I wonder how Sanford would feel if he saw me, a white boy, slammed up against a locker by coach Stevenson, a white guy, when he heard me say something really stupid and hurtful to another white person?

    In my day at high school we had limits. We knew the limits and abided by those limits. We also had a faith formation that taught us that our fellow human beings were created by God and therefore deserved our respect as He had created them.

    In my humble opinion what Kahari Sanford and many others of his generation lack is the kind of education that I had when I was younger. It was not so much an education out of a text book but an education in how to be a good citizen in a civil society.

    Learning how to pray on your knee’s to a God that is much greater than yourself, is in my opinion, the most important part of being a good citizen in a civil society.

    When you see yourself and others as a part of God’s creation, as we all have been created by God, you see all lives as having value.

    Even the native Americans believed that the spirits of the animals they harvested for meat deserved their respect as they had been given a gift of life that only the Great Spirit could give them.

    Our society could learn much from them!

      Wiebe or Falk were more scary. Stevenson just looked anal retentive. I saw many a time Milt McPike put a kid into a locker to get their attention. I had the upmost respect for him.

        Wiebe started out at JMM as a Social Studies teacher & was a real D!CK early on (late 60s)

        Talked with a pal during his class once as a freshman; he took us out of 9th grade FB practice and put us through the most brutal set of wind-sprints ever endured: Lesson learned!

        The guy was an outstanding BB player! We became friends after we played a couple of pickup games together at the old Shell on campus; he was kicking 20 year-old’s @$$e$ when he was in his mid 40’s.

        Would occasionally see him when running through Hill Farms (he lived near the pool) late 90s/early aughts and we’d chat amicably.

        Knew McPike from when he frequented the Concourse Hotel where The Gotch worked security/bounced; he was as solid as they come. If each HS had one each of him & Wally Schoessow, and their Y-Chromosomal counterparts, the MMSD wouldn’t be the pathetically laughable joke it is now!

    You can be sure he did not write this by himself. Wokeness helped him be a victim.
