Exposing Franklin Baxley Part 4: Domestic Abuser Uses Non-Profit To Make Six Figure Salary, Gets Hired By Needham Women’s Group Despite Open Felony Domestic Violence Case 

To read this blog on our ad free website TBDailyNews.com click here. 

This is a multi-part blog series investigating the background of Franklin “Jussie” Baxley, the man who videotaped a woman at a dog park in Attleboro while she was calling the cops on him for harassing her. He lied and said she was calling because his dogs were humping her dogs. Although this might’ve been the initial cause for her concern, he escalated the situation by refusing to put his dogs on a leash after she asked, and then began following her around the park as she asked him nicely to stop. Read Part 1 here, part 2 here, and part 3 hereIt documents his past history as a convicted criminal in many states, a disbarred “lawyer,” and a man who still has an open felony case for assault against a woman.

Part 4 will document how Franklin has profited off of race-baiting for most of his life, and how he bleeds well-intentioned white liberals out of their money by presenting himself as a reformed ex-con, even though he’s far from it. Franklin understands how the racism-industrial complex works. You create racism, then you profit off of it by selling the cure for it. Obviously racism still exists in American society today, no rational person denies that. The problem is it’s not nearly as common as people like Franklin need it to be. That’s why people like Franklin and Jussie Smollett have to make up hate crimes. Because the demand for racism exceeds the supply.

Franklin is the interim executive director of Criminal Justice Reform Coalition, which is part of or endorsed by Mass Inc.

Much like the now defunct Mosaic Cultural Complex, which we did a series exposing three years ago, CJRC is a non-profit that employs ex-cons because it’s easier than getting a real job. Non-profits receive grants from donors and the government which they dispense to their employees as they see fit. Franklin received his position in 2017 and used it to lobby legislators at the Statehouse for a criminal justice reform bill that amongst other things reduces sentences for drug dealers, which is convenient because Franklin spent time in jail for selling drugs.

Franklin uses the racism-industrial complex to profit by getting paid to do speaking gigs about such topics as the “School to Prison Pipeline,” which criticizes schools that suspend students who violate school rules, and lobbies to keep police officers out of public schools.

He has had his law license suspended in both Massachusetts and New York for disciplinary reasons that are not listed, and used to work for the law firm Robinson Donovan in Springfield as a discrimination attorney.

But according to him he now makes more money working for the SJRC.

Which is quite possible when you supplement it with other ways he makes money.

However, Franklin was arrested in 2018 by the Pawtucket Police and currently has an open case for felony domestic violence A&B.

And he had this to say about the victim.

He continues to threaten people with physical violence in the comments, as well as the woman in the video whose address he has posted numerous times.

So my question is, why does the CJRC continue to employ him as executive director? Especially when he posts blatantly racist, sexist, and demeaning things about women. I understand that the CJRC believes in giving ex-cons a second chance at life, which is certainly a noble venture. However, when someone posts that the victim in his felony domestic violence case is a “whore home wrecker,” who “probably prostitutes herself in the champagne room of Foxy Lady,” they’re proving that they are in no way, shape or form “reformed.” To demean sex workers, most of who buy drugs off of convicted drug dealers like Franklin, makes it even hypocritical. Why is a legitimate non-profit, that takes in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in grants, employing this man as their public face? Simple – they need a well spoken black man with a criminal record. He is their token.

Someone posted on the SJRC about their concern with Franklin’s public behavior.

When he attempted to contact the CJRC on Facebook this is what happened.

Either Franklin is allowed to run their page or the organization explicitly condones his behavior. My guess is it’s the former, but either scenario is troubling. This man should not be employed by a legitimate non-profit.

We tried to contact attorney Eric Tennen, since he is listed as the Chairman of the SJRC, but he did not return our phone call. You can find his law firm Swomley-Tennen LLP on Facebook, and they do have a review section. Please DO NOT flood them with negative reviews, nor should you contact them with your concerns at  (617) 227-9443 unless you have a problem with Attorney Tennen employing a violent, misogynistic ex-con as the face of SJRC.

At the June 29, 2017 School to Prison Pipeline lecture he was paid to be there by the National Education Association, the second largest teacher’s union in the country. Teachers are forced to pay dues to the NEA and this is what they spend it on – paying a violent, sexist career criminal who has never taught before to lecture teachers about why holding students responsible for their behavior is racist.

People like Franklin use the racism-industrial complex to milk money out of wealthy progressive white people. He knows who has all the money, and he knows the right buzzwords to use. As Robert “Boo Shameek” Alston put it when he was employed by Mosaic, you just need to “play on that white guilt” and try to find a bunch of “dumb n words that’s trying to change their lives,” and you’ll be “sitting on a conglomerate, an untapped source of power and unlimited source of income.”

This almost perfectly describes the mentality of Franklin Baxley. And to the surprise of no one Franklin summonsed former Mosaic employee Michael Jerry, who was kicked out of a City Council meeting for threatening former Councillor Michael Gaffney after we exposed that he was lying on his time sheets and Mosaic was defunded (look at the dates).

Screen Shot 2016-01-26 at 2.25.23 PM

Here’s what Franklin Baxley posted today in regards to Mr. Jerry.

Again, he is looking for Uncle Turtleboy’s address, presumably so he can show up and threaten him in person. He has posted the addresses of multiple people as a way to intimidate them, including the poor woman in the video whose life he is trying to ruin by labeling her as a racist.

Later in 2017 he was paid to speak in Needham by the League of Women Voters of Needham, a progressive organization.

This is the ideal crowd for Franklin to speak to. He knows how to do what Boo Shameek advised him to do – say the right buzzwords to the right people and profit off of it. Needham is an extremely wealthy but overwhelmingly white and liberal town. The audience he’s speaking too is entirely white, and they are looking for charity cases of color like Franklin to throw money at in order to alleviate themselves of the guilt they feel for being wealthy and white.

But Franklin is an openly sexist individual who was arrested months ago for felony assault and battery on a woman. I would expect that a woman’s group would openly condemn someone like this. Feel free to contact the Needham Women’s Group on Facebook to voice your concerns, as they update their page quite frequently, and they have a review section as well if you don’t hear back from them.

Franklin makes his money off of white guilt. Just read some of the comments on his Facebook page from white people who continue to support him even after being confronted with his criminal background.

Gregory Kato is one of the “good white people” because he “calls out racism” on Facebook. And by “calls out racism” he means, “goes out of his way to stand up for a violent woman beating drug dealer because he’s black and it will help ease Gregory of the tremendous guilt he feels for only associating with other white people socially.”

Others suggested that because Franklin is black it means he was unfairly accused of criminality.

In other words, Adam Ritz does not believe women who were victims of domestic abuse. But that doesn’t stop him from pretending he’s not a sexist who hates women. And he’s got the hat to prove it.

Another person supporting Franklin who he still associates with is Reginald Ransom Dore.

In 2013 Ransom Dore and two others sought to go “bum hunting” in Providence, which involves beating a homeless person for no reason. Instead they found a Providence College student and seriously injured and robbed him. Ransom Dore stomped on his head, rendering him unconscious.

The victim of this vicious attack, who was completely innocent, randomly targeted, and still effected by this today, “had it coming, just like you,” according to Franklin Baxley.

This is who a man working for a criminal justice non-profit chooses to associate with and support the violent criminal behavior of. A violent, gang-banging drug dealer.

This whole stunt was planned by Franklin, and he was waiting for something like this to happen so he could cash in. He readily admits that he conned the national media into falling for it.

And in messages to us he could not understand why we wouldn’t fall for his race baiting scam.


For the record, Franklin’s own mother is not black, and he recently shared this image for pity considering his new found fame.

He’s just milking the tiny percentage of his identity that he knows is profitable because an ex-con like him can’t get a real job.

Stay tuned for Part 5.

    Wow!! Some of the comments you shared from Franklin where obviously part of a conversation and you cut and paste or deleted
    some things to make a point. That is not a fair representation! I was actually considering your opinion but can go no further when you are obviously misrepresenting the facts just to get your point across! That is not fair. In your overzealous plight to slander this guy, you are assuming people are stupid. If what you believe is true, you should have just represented the truth. Again, in your plight to sway, you played with and pretty much lied to try and control how I regarded your opinion . People always say “The reason I didn’t tell you the truth is because I didn’t want you to think etc.etc” I might have agreed with something you had to say but I can’t even consider it now because you are trying to control my opinion by misrepresenting the facts!

    Is F*ckwad Franklin Baxley a Jr or a 3rd? Or is he his own father? Does that make you a MoFo, Franklin?

    This so-called “School to Prison Pipeline” doesn’t exist. It’s a crack-mom-no-homelife-gangbanger-buddy pipeline. If the family life supported getting an education instead of letting them compete to see who goes to juvie first, there wouldn’t be a problem.

    Most of these nonprofits are nothing but scams to provide cushy jobs to losers who happen to be politically connected. What’s worse is that they are supported by taxpayer dollars, which is yet another reason for reducing or eliminating the state income tax.

    The tax code needs to be changed to eliminate these types of organizations. A nonprofit or charity that gives 5% of what they take in is criminal.

    That video shows Franklin having his ho beat on a random innocent white girl minding her own business just walking down a public street. Definite hate crime.

    The Pussy detector has never reacted so strongly. Franklin must be the biggest pussy east of the Mississippi! I’m not surprised though, this thing always goes off strong when it’s pointed at internet tough guys who are always “willing to meeting in person” yet never follow thru. To be clear, Franklin would show up to fight, but only if the person is a girl. He wants no part in fighting a man, but then again it’s not surprising, he is a GIANT PUSSY!

    Hey Franklin

    I’m so tired of these Fucks hollering “racism” at every turn. These types will keep trying to turn simple encounters into racism if it fits their needs. He has no clue what real racism is or what it was. He only goes by what the SJWs invent to further their cause. These non- profits are far from non-profit. They make tons of money.. My money and your money, inventing perceived racism. I don’t think it will ever be stopped.

Someone should let them know that black people can already bilk white people out of money without raising my taxes. Thanks to the msm pushing their narrative (I am so sick of that fucking word) that America now is more racist now than jim crowe America white people will be lining up to give away their hard earned money with the hope that when the revolution comes their house will be passed by.

    How can this guy cry about racism and white privilege when he was an attorney and pissed that away, brags about the crimes he has gotten away with, brags about the money he makes – (which btw Franklin $120,000 isn’t really that much. We are younger than you and brought in over $400,000 this year, 128,000 for my husband’s salary and the rest from investments. So technically because I don’t even work, I made almost $300,000 doing nothing) and brags that he practically does nothing for that money. Yeah that is some white privilege working against you.

    The saddest thing, like in most of these cases, is that the media is not reporting the other side. I sent something to Fox, about how disgusting they were for making fun of this lady, and they did not correct their story. At least, you guys admitted wrong doing and are showing the other side. Why isn’t Inside Edition doing an interview with her and showing how she was wronged. It is very sad. I want to get a body cam to start protecting myself. I was fired once, because two black women lied about me and another tried to strangle me and nothing was done. I have bad luck, so I definitely see something like this happening to me..hahaha

    One thing that all of this shows is that criminal justice reform is in fact badly needed. Society needs protection from perps like Franklin; particularly women. Anyone supporting him through this is complicit at the very least and possibly a party to whatever he’s charged with next.
