Look who's Paying Officer Wilson's Bills

Not only does Darren Wilson have the protection of the entire police department after shooting someone in cold blood, (how many of us could count on having our names withheld for as long as his was if we committed crimes?) he has the support of the Ku Klux Klan! That's right; the Klan has raised the money for this creep to take an extended vacation, miss court dates, get a woman knocked up, and buy a house, all in the same general we know he isn't worried about revenge or indictment.

While a murderer hides and skips going to court, a hate group publicly raises the money for him to do this. Would your local court allow anyone to do this for you, if you skipped any court appearances? Or would that be considered obstruction of justice?

More Of Officer Wilson's Work

Concerning the buzz that Officer Wilson, aka Darrin Green, and other fake names, is not guilty of any misconduct, including murder, is not only unsupported by all of the forensic evidence connected to the crime scene, but Wilson's post crime behavior does not support it either. In this video, we hear from a girl who had gotten mace in her eyes during the aftermath of Wilson's crime. Officer Wilson, himself, prevented her from cleaning the mace out of her eyes so that she could see, and actually threatened her with arrest if she did this. Was he worried about potential testimony? Or was he just being a racist?

Bill Maher On Kansas

Interesting. While delving into the past of Paul Davis, who is running against Sam Browncrack for governorship of Kansas, Republicans discovered that Davis once went to a strip club when he was in his twenties, before he got married. Once. He's never taken bribes, violated anyone's civil rights, pandered to big businesses while forgetting about everyone else, outlawed medical care for women, or compromised education in public schools; but a night on the town sixteen years ago would simply be too much. Quite a bit of Kansas is rather permissive about such things as clubs and drinking: when parents complain about the behaviors of predominantly christian high school boys in public schools that function as if they were private, predominantly christian school, (lots of drinking and sexaul exploitation-not much reading, writing, and 'rithmetic) the "unified" school boards look the other way, saying "boys will be boys". But now we have the same religious Republicans who give their own sons the latitude to drive drunk and take advantage of our underage daughters crying the blues because a contender for the office of governor went out one night and drank in a bar. The only reason Republicans in Kansas wouldn't be comfortable with Davis as governor is because Davis would not be in favor of bar hopping every night, or of driving home drunk. And Davis would definitely not favor allowing children to do such things.

Davis also does not use religion in order to push anyone's buttons or gain a reaction from a voter. Brownback does. That's a big reason to vote against Brownback. Religion is personal, and Kansas routinely expresses far too much disrespect for it.

Koch Brothers Place Bid On Outcome Of Kansas Election

The Koch Brothers bought some air time, about eleven million dollars worth, to secure seats for assorted republicans around the nation. About one million went into Kansas ads, promoting the senile and largely ineffective Pat Roberts. As a resident of Virginia, Roberts even votes there now! How is he still "representing" Kansas?


Greg Orman, an Independent challenger for the Kansas Senate, actually does live in Kansas. Why would the Koch Brothers wish to see Kansas represented in the Senate by someone who does not actually live in Kansas, and whose votes in the Senate, for good or for ill, will not affect his own life in any way? After all, Pat Roberts is a Virginia resident.

In Case You Skipped Church On Sunday

Ah, John Lennon. He was so right about about the followers of Jesus Christ; I would say both during the lifetime Of Jesus and today, but it is abundantly clear that Jesus did not exist. I wish he had been correct about the Christian church, as a whole, vanishing and shrinking. Then, the world would have a chance at peace.

To Whom It May Concern

It's not a very good idea to stalk veterans who have served during wartime and been involved in hand to hand combat. In fact, it's one of the stupidest things you frankfurter morons have done, so far. I don't know what Melissa Kennedy and Dean Dalinghaus have told you in order to convince you that it is somehow "okay" to play these games, but please remember that neither of them have ever lived anywhere that required them to learn other languages or customs, and neither of them have been involved in war. When Melissa pretends she cares about veterans, that is all it is: pretend. This I know for a fact, because she would not only be more grateful to those who fought for her rights to produce offspring from multiple baby-daddies and pretend it all happened within holy wedlock, but she would also know better than to encourage those of lesser IQ than herself (albeit not much) to commit hate crimes and acts of violence against them. As for Dalinghaus, he is just a moron. Encouraging children at the school he administrates to commit acts of violence against a disabled child he does not like is classic bigotry, and if you answer to him for some reason, you should consider growing up and finding a less dangerous victim.

Also, please be warned that tempered glass does not last forever, and shatters at unpredictable intervals. Those windows that seem to have captured your interest should be left alone. The "No Trespassing" sign you ignored while parked in the alley and in front of the neighbor's house is not only to express our feelings about spending time with the average frankfurter, it is to absolve us from any liability in the event that any member of the under socialized, native population in this little metropolis leaves our property with fewer appendages than he or she sported upon entry. Despite what Dalinghaus will tell you about places such as Baltimore and our nations's capitol, (I have lived in both cities) it is not common for "guests" to announce their presence by banging, uninvited, on windows, or by other criminal acts. I don't suppose you have considered the fact that in a town of about seven hundred people, just a few violent crimes will drive the per capita crime rate higher than that of a big city. Has any teacher at Frankfort High School had the competence to teach you that? Ironically, Kansas is extremely liberal about self defense.

Does this number,, mean anything to you?

Georgia Police Hate Okra

Georgia police apparently had nothing to do one day last week, so they descended on the home of Dwayne Perry in Cartersville Georgia to arrest him for the crime of growing okra in his garden. Who knows what they were thinking....."if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck...maybe it's marijuana!" No; that can't be it. It's a lot more likely that the police in Georgia were not thinking at all.

To the left is a big bud, such as one would find on an okra stalk. Maybe the drug suppression task force will try smoking it.

Luckily, no one was injured or killed. When police act on misinformation or ego driven agendas, innocent people often are injured or killed. Too often. For that reason, the ensuing apology seemed a bit hollow to Perry. "It did have quite a number of characteristics that were similar to a cannabis plant," opined Georgia State cop, Kermit Stokes. Perhaps it did; both plants photosynthesize.

"If we disturbed them in any manner, that's not our intent. Our intent is to go out and do our job to the best of our ability." Such and apology would be a lot more believable if police in Georgia had actually investigated the case of a Valdosta high school student by the name of Kendrick Johnson, who was found deceased in a rolled up gym mat at his school. He had "disappeared", and his parents were never informed by the school that he was missing. Sound familiar, Frankfort, Kansas?

Dangerous okra plants, and other infractions of prohibition laws, should never take precedence over missing persons investigations and murder investigations.

Frisbee Golf, Anyone?

While on the subject of abuses of law enforcement, and unlawful search and seizure, here's some cell phone footage from Ankeny, Iowa. A cop was simply not satisfied with a routine traffic stop and expressed an unrequited desire to unlawfully search the car he had pulled over. The driver declined the offer, and eventually left, but not without recording the incident. Now the police in Iowa want everyone to know that they are terribly sorry about the whole thing, and that it is just a small, isolated incident. Once again, the advice is worth reiteration: always record interactions with police.

Another False Arrest Lawsuit In The Making

Here's some cell phone footage taken by someone who was harassed by law enforcement in Sandusky, Ohio. The man was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for no reason. Since he was not the driver, he was not required to show identification, and the police had no business asking him for any. Yet they, and when he refused to play their games, the drug dog was summoned. The police also threatened to give his two week old baby to child protective services. What is not shown in this video is the actual arrest for obstruction of justice followed by the man getting tasered. All because he sat quietly in the car while the driver got pulled over.

On Tuesday, Officer Denny, the racist, pos cop, was put on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation that would never have been initiated without the victim's cell phone video. Folks, the minute you get pulled over, the cell phone needs to be put in video mode. You may think you are white enough, law abiding enough, sober enough, ect., to survive a police officer who is paid to supply privatized prisons with laborers and privatized foster care systems with newborn babies to sell to the highest bidders, but money has to be made some way. This officer thought he had a legal way to traffic defenseless humans.

Missing Pet In Madison Kansas

An ostrich has gone missing from it's home in Madison Kansas. Nakita Elwood, of Rock Creek  Ostrich Ranch, is offering a small reward for the return of her pet. No joke. KVOL has contact information for Ms. Elwood, in the event that you happen to see the ostrich. Not only will there be a reward, there will be reassurance that you are not hallucinating.

Between Mabon and Samhain

Back in the day, before the retail industry owned most of our holidays and before corporations had become "people", (could a presidential candidate have chosen anything stupider to say?) it was customary among European Pagans to give gifts of homemade food to relatives and friends on Winter Solstice. At that time of year in the northern hemisphere, harvest had been completed and Nature was at a loll, in between seasons. Food was a highly appreciated gift. The process of canning, of course, had not been invented, but our Ancestors dried herbs, brewed wine, distilled spirits, and baked. In fact, dried herbs and teas were the traditional ways everyone got enough folic acid during the winter.

The time between Mabon and Samhain is a very busy season for any type of agriculture, but the Ancients probably never had time to spare as the days got shorter, and Halloween, the last holy day of the year, got closer. The Goddess has blessed this Witch with a great garden and lots of creative ideas, and this year, the retail industry will have one less customer for Winter Solstice gift giving. Blessed Be!

Terri Horman And The Mystery Man

One of the reasons for the recent petition that has been circulating about the Kyron Horman case is the somewhat new distraction of the "mystery man" spoken of by Kyron's former stepmother, Terri Horman, and her et els. She and her attorney both purport that there was an unknown man at school with Kyron on June 4, 2010, yet neither of them have expressed a desire to know more about this "mystery man" until recently. Please note that Kyron has been missing for four years. It  really seems that any family member truly hoping to find Kyron would have brought up the existence and presence of this unknown witness immediately after Kyron disappeared, rather than four years, a divorce, and an unsuccessful name change later. Terri, where's Kyron?

There is a petition circulating at the moment, asking the police in Multnomah County, Oregon, to clarify the existence and description of this "mystery man", or lack thereof, as the case may be. The petition can be signed and accessed here. Please note that neither Terri Horman or her attorney wrote the petition or made any request to identify the "mystery man" or bring Kyron home.

While We Are On The Subject Of Petitions

Maryland has a prisoner by the name of Timothy Conrad Phillips. Mr. Phillips took up residence in prison because he murdered two small children and pretended, at first, that he didn't do it. He was sentenced to twenty years for each murder, plus ten more years for the abuses that went hand in hand with the murders, but the sentences unfortunately run concurrent, rather than consecutive. He also has a parole hearing in January of 2015. If Mr. Phillips gets parole, he will have only served seventeen years of his sentence. Neither Amani Renee Robinson or Andre Michael Whitworth had a chance to reach the age of seventeen; why should Mr. Phillips reside somewhere outside of prison after only serving seventeen years?

There is a petition circulating now, requesting that probation not be granted to Timothy Conrad Phillips. You can peruse and sign it if you follow this link. Please sign it, and share it with everyone. It's time for all of us to stop hearing about this type of crime.
