BLM Activist Raymond Karim Roberts (40)

Kevin Mathewson, a Private Investigator and Editor of the Kenosha County Eye filed a defamation suit Tuesday in Kenosha County Circuit Court against Raymond Karim Roberts.

Roberts has been in a lot of trouble with the law. Kenosha’s District Attorney’s Office has let him off the hook many times, however.

Domestic Violence

According to police reports, on March 27, 2010 police went to Robert’s home after a 9-1-1 call was made from the residence. His wife told police that he battered her because she refused to show him her tax filings. According to the report, Roberts admitted to battering his wife on the recorded 9-1-1 tape. Multiple police officers and a detective were involved and they arrested Roberts, asking Kenosha Assistant District Attorney T. Clair Binger to charge Roberts with domestic battery. Of course, T. Clair refused to charge Roberts. Roberts’ wife applied for and was granted a restraining order due to the arrest. Robert’s wife called the police on March 29 and told them that Roberts had taken her car and was at the house, in violation of the restraining order. T. Clair again refused to charge Roberts. Police later found a damaged fire hydrant near the home and thought that Roberts crashed his wife’s car into the hydrant. Police questioned him about the hit and run and police say Roberts was uncooperative. An officer wrote “(Roberts) talked extensively about his military service.” Roberts was in fact a reserve member of the national guard and seems to have told this immediately to all police officers he spoke to.

Restraining Order From New Girlfriend

On May 7, 2012, Roberts was taken to court by a girlfriend of six months. She told the court that he stalked her, called her and texted her incessantly. She told the judge he sits outside her house and knows where she is at all times. She felt danger for herself and her child. The judge granted the restraining order for four years.

OWI # 1

On September 26, 2012 Roberts was pulled over after a night of heavy drinking at multiple taverns. He was uncooperative with police and was arrested and convicted of OWI #1 on February 25, 2013.

Alleged Child Abuse

On August 6, 2016 a stranger to Roberts called 9-1-1 to report that Roberts smacked his son in the face. The stranger and Roberts were at a lakefront event. Police came and Roberts admitted to smacking his son. No charged were filed against Roberts, who was with a new girlfriend at the time that would later become his wife.

Two Counts of Felony Child Abuse

Robert’s ex-wife called the Sheriff’s department on February 5, 2017 to report that her two minor sons had welts all over their bodies and were injured. The boys told their Mom that Roberts had hit them with the buckle end of a belt, causing welts. Police questioned Robert’s girlfriend and Roberts himself, but neither would cooperate. The Sheriff’s department got a search warrant to search Robert’s home. The belt that the boys were abused with was located and photographed by police. The belt had 12-guage shotgun shells attached to the leather The Sheriff’s department asked the Kenosha DA’s office to charge Roberts with two felony counts of child abuse. Surprisingly, they did. Unfortunately, Mike Graveley approved a plea deal that lowered both charges to misdemeanors. He got one year of probation.

DUI # 2 and Endangering Safety by Use of a Dangerous Weapon (Under the Influence)

Crime Scene Photo

On March 14, 2020 Roberts was driving in Milwaukee County and was deviating from his lane, per police reports. He was stopped by a Sheriff’s Deputy. The Deputy smelled an odor of intoxicants and had Roberts do field sobriety tests. He failed the tests and his blood registered .165 g/100mL, which is more than twice the legal limit in Wisconsin. Since Roberts was also carrying a loaded .40CAL pistol, he was charged with a serious weapons charge too. Roberts was admitted into the Milwaukee County “veterans treatment court” and Milwaukee DA John Chisholm promised to drop the serious gun charge to a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct if he graduated from veteran court. Roberts recently avoided a drug test, which postponed his graduation date. He has been out on bail ever since and the prosecutor is asking for 20 days in the Milwaukee House of Corrections.

Loss of Custody

On December 28, 2020 a Kenosha Judge stripped Roberts of all custody of his two minor sons after a court trial.

KCE has written many articled about Roberts over the last few years.  Here they are:

https://kenoshacountyeye.com/2021/02/15/kenosha-judge-takes-custody-away-from-blm-activist-court-records/

It is unsurprising that Roberts doesn’t like his life of crime and controversy to be publicized, but his status as a public figure makes these events news-worthy.

Roberts has been falsely claiming that the Editor of KCE, Kevin Mathewson is a “white supremacist” publicly for two years. At least 20 such posts have been identified. Mathewson largely ignored these false statements until they escalated. Roberts then began to threaten Mathewson’s minor children by alleging that Mathewson is training them to be “suicide bombers” and will blow up their school. Unsurprisingly, school parents became alarmed by these false threats and contacted district and school administration. Roberts posted Mathewson’s home address where he lives with his wife and children. Roberts seemingly encouraged people to harm Mathewson and his family. Mathewson notified the police and a Kenosha Police Detective investigated. The Kenosha DA’s office, who sympathizes with the BLM movement refused to take any action against Roberts. Roberts then falsely and maliciously claimed that Mathewson was making “death threats to military veterans.” Surprisingly, Roberts authored a social media post on March 4, 2022 admitting that he lied about the allegations of Mathewson being a white supremacist.

“I believe very strongly in the first amendment. Unfortunately, Robert’s speech, especially that which puts my children and family in danger, is not protected under the constitution. Since DA Graveley didn’t take action, my only choice is to sue Mr. Roberts and that exactly what I’ve done. I look forward to some accountability here” said Mathewson.

  1. Wow! I know Ray. He drove 30 miles to my house in Salem after a comment on facebook he didn’t like. Such an angry man. Of course after I stood toe to toe with Ray, he left without incident. I did have some concern when he said: We’re watching you! I assume it’s him and his buddy the alderman with a bad temper who allegedly punches his employees..

  2. This guy loves to piss people off, and he’s been screwing people over for years, including veterans. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes, get sued.

  3. BLM activists like Roberts are emboldened by Leftist DAs like Chisolm and BLM sympathizer Graveley. These Marxist DAs are encouraging thugs like Roberts to continue to pursue their lawless ambitions and behavior that includes harassment and threats to people on a level compared to Hitler’s Brown Shirts.

  4. Dudes a clown. His Facebook is full of I’m so smart and I’m a vet. (Yes we are FB friends) it’s astonishing to see what he posts knowing who he is. Just a fraud by all accounts

    1. Yes his page is public so I enjoy going to it to see what lies he’s posting about everyday. Violent fraud who rants about white privilege and white supremacists, meanwhile he’s out here with the real privledge after beating his ex wife and losing his kids, and out on probation after two OWIs.
