RANT: Is the Zimmerman judge fair?

Friday, July 12, 2013

Sorry, while I haven’t been in the courtroom, I do think that the Procesution has proved reasonable doubt. I’m no lawyer, but it seems there is SUBSTANTIAL room for appeal.

What swings it for me is that Z had no duty to NOT follow what he perceived as a suspect.

And, clearly he was getting his butt kicked.

The left wing media with the pictures has prejudiced the jury pool.

I have no idea if he’s “guilty”; I do think that he has to be judged “not guilty”!

Sorry for all involved.

NEWJERSEY: Partially good; partially dumb

FATHER CHARGED WITH ASSAULT BY AUTO, CHILD ENDANGERMENT FOR ACCIDENT THAT CRITICALLY INJURED DAUGHTER

A Somerset County father has been charged with second degree assault by auto and second degree child endangerment, as well as drunk driving and reckless driving following an investigation into a May 21, 2011 accident. The accident took place at the intersection of Ridge Road and New Road in the Monmouth Junction section of the Township. The accident happened when Sarathe Gunaskera age 56 of Bedminster drove his 2001 Lincoln Town Car on New Road through a stop sign and into a Ridge Road home.

The intersection requires drivers on New Road to make a left or right onto Ridge Road. At the time of the accident Gunaskera told officers he drove straight because his GPS did not tell him to turn. An investigation by Officer Monica Posteraro and the South Brunswick Traffic Safety Bureau uncovered evidence the GPS was not to blame. The investigation discovered that Gunaskera was intoxicated at the time of the crash and had just left a gathering near the scene of the crash.

The accident severely injured Gunasekera 13-year-old daughter. She suffered a head injury and multiple facial fractures. His wife was also injured in the crash suffering a severe head laceration. Both have been released from the hospital.

Gunasekera was charged after blood samples submitted to the New Jersey State Police laboratory came back showing his blood alcohol concentration was above the legal limit. The severity of the charges was increased because the accident took place within a 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

Gunasekera surrendered at South Brunswick Police headquarters at 4:20pm Monday afternoon. He was released after processing and posting $50,000 bail.

Now I think DUI with it’s numerical limits is dumb.

In this case, there was damage and injury. That’s serious stuff.

In this case, there’s restitution due to all the victims.

The case is probably open and shut. Drinking and accident with personal injury and property damage.

Should throw the book at him … …

… … but not because it was within a 1k feet of a school?

There are hospital bills and emergency services expense that need restitution.

So, “We, The Sheeple” need to be protected from this menace, but it would be interesting to see what really happens.

Cold Case Solved: Carlina White Reunites With Parents
White Was Kidnapped as a Baby 23 Years Ago From a New York City Hospital

*** begin quote ***

Carlina White, separated from her family when she was kidnapped as a baby 23 years ago, followed her instincts to reunite with her biological parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson. “Carlina was a missing link and we have gotten her back in the name of Jesus, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,” Pat Conway, White’s godmother, said. On Aug. 4, 1987, worried parents Joy White and Carl Tyson took their feverish baby daughter to Harlem Hospital’s emergency room. The visit turned into horror when…

As much as I like happy endings, there is a LOT more to the story.

Gooferment screw ups: <1> Hospital; <2> School; … must be others.

It would seem that there are a lot of charges to be investigated and filed in this case.

Technology had a role in finding with the computer aged photos.

Perhaps, this will have a happy ending?

Seattle Police Guild Defends Officer’s Punch

Published June 16, 2010 | Associated Press

*** begin quote ***

Seattle Police Officers Guild President Rich O’Neil says an officer was justified in punching a young woman who shoved him in a dispute over jaywalking.

*** end quote ***

I had a conversation about this incident.

Over jaywalking? And, how old are the two girls?

FRIEND: It was the fact that the officer was surrounded by urban yutes, and the woman pushed him. They are trained how to handle themselves in situations like this….as they commented later, there have been many instances where police officers were brutually attacked when they took a passive stance. His aggressive action may have prevented something much worse. I need to get you a new pair of glasses, or contact lenses! :-)

No. (no new glasses needed)

I’ve seen the video. Couple of points:

(1) Jaywalking? It’s like the Gooferment is using its force to pick a fight with the folks.

(2) The girls were clearly out of control and were inciting trouble.

(3) The “citizens” didn’t not help “their” police diffuse the situation, calm the the agitated woman who got punched, or assist in protecting “their” officer. (imho citizens have an affirmative duty to enforce the laws made in their name).

(4) The police officer MAY have over reacted. But alone, and facing multiple opponents, and a potential mob, I’m not going to criticize him. (I ain’t walked in those moccasins.) Faced with that situation, if he truly felt threatened he’d have been justified imho in drawing his weapon. I think that he was foolish to get in close combat with “crazy people” who might have had a knife or other “blade”. When they resisted, I’d have stepped back, drawn my weapon, and directed them to step back and lie down on the ground. I’d support that.

The punch in an attempt to detain may have been an over reaction.

And, how old are these girls anyway?

Different Spanks for Different Ranks

*** begin quote ***

But that sanction is far less severe than the punishment imposed on enlisted personnel and lower-ranking officers. Enlisted members would almost certainly face an Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), resulting in the loss of a stripe, forfeiture of a portion of their pay for several months, and the eventual end of their military careers. Officers would also receive an Article 15, with an accompanying fine and possible separation from the service. Offenders in both groups would also lose access to classified information and face an uphill fight in restoring their clearances.

*** end quote ***

As an ex USAF nco, I know that this is unexplainable. Other RHIP!

As a little L libertarian, I’m not big on DUI laws. Unless there is injury and / or property damage, then a trial and throw the book at people.

For all the gooferment’s ranting and raving, it’s generally conceded that the damage USUALLY comes from repeat offenders and that the sanctions don’t keep drunks off the road.

(1) Repeat offenders (i.e., with a prior DUI conviction or even an arrest or warning) get a mandatory jail term. It’s too dangerous to let them out on the road. First offense earns a year; second, a decade; third two decades. This non-sense of ten convictions is a joke.

(2) We need to reform the DUI laws in two ways: If no injury or damage, then a warning with teeth (i.e., you’ve been warned and should you case injury or damage, then those counts as your first offense.)

None of this Blood Alcohol Levels in random stops. It’s not about making money for the gooferment; it’s about really protecting the public.

(3) And generals shouldn’t get any consideration. What the enlisted and junior officers get is what the should get. Perhaps with an adder. There is nothing that kills an organization more than hypocrisy!

imho

NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE (An Index Card Novel)

# – # – #

In recent history, very few counterinsurgency wars have ended in success. Guerrillas, outgunned by a wealthier invading power, but they do have an advantage. They are fighting on their home turf, which they usually know much better than the invader.

# – # – #

The old wife died of “systematic malpractice”. Her “quality adjusted life expectancy” didn’t warrant the medicines she used to have. Just one more casualty of the President’s new “health care for everyone”. Everyone as long as you weren’t old and chronically ill.

The fat old white guy decide that was just not right.

# – # – #

He was a graduate of the finest Ivy League school. He happened to have the right roommate at Harvard. Hence he was the “Healthcare Sub-Czar for the Northeastern Region”. It was the beginning of eliminating the inconvenient States of old. He had a palatial home, a huge corner office, and lackeys galore. All he had to do was balance the income versus the outgo. It was easy. He had a list of services with a running total of cost. He just drew the line and God help those below the “waterline”.

# – # – #

The fat old white guy read the newspapers. It was not hard to replicate the DC Sniper’s set up. It wasn’t hard to find a home address. It wasn’t hard to find a good place to lie down. It wasn’t hard to sanitize the apparatus. It wasn’t hard to wait for a windless day.

# – # – #

It was a glorious morning. The Sub-Czar had done such a good job drawing his line that yesterday he was select to be promoted to Czar. He walked out his front door where his chauffeur was patiently waiting. He took a deep breath as was his usual practice.

CRACK!

He wondered where the truck backfire was coming from. He felt a pain. He looked at the shocked driver. His vision blurred.

# – # – #

The fat old white man walked away.

In a jogging suit, he looked like the typical fat breathless runner trying to catch up with his lost youth. Obviously struggling to catch his breath. If the President could win the Peace Prize, then he should have gotten an Academy Award.

He wondered who was the current sub-Czar in charge of … …

# – # – #

The Israeli Government of Ariel Sharon is, like its predecessors, committed to the policy of assassinating individuals who it believes pose a threat to its citizens.

In 1976, President Ford issued Executive Order 11905 to clarify U.S. foreign intelligence activities. The order was enacted in response to the post-Watergate revelations that the CIA had staged multiple attempts on the life of Cuban President Fidel Castro.

According to an October 21, 2001, Washington Post article, President Bush in September of last year signed an intelligence “finding” instructing the CIA to engage in “lethal covert operations” to destroy Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda organization.

# – # – #

The fat old white guy needed no “policy” or “executive order”. No team. No “cheerleaders”. No co-conspirators. No nobody. Just one man truly acting alone. He just evened the score.

# # # # #

(This is a fictional story. And, not an indication of any type of activity that should be engaged in.)

Three sourpuss Parks Department agents put the squeeze on a 10-year-old girl in Riverside Park yesterday, slapping the tyke with a $50 ticket for hawking lemonade without a permit.

Sorry, but where did the bureaucrat get off “voiding” the ticket? And, what about Federal charges for practicing chemistry without a license.

The City (an imaginary entity) needs the fifty bucks.

Yeah, it’s absurd. But then, gooferment is absurd.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The unanswered questions of the Kennedy assasination

Deep Politics and the Death of JFK by Peter Dale Scott
Book review by Jodey Bateman

*** begin quote ***

Scott says that at this point it is not possible to say what specific individuals plotted to kill Kennedy. However, there is publicly available information, easy to obtain, on why a much larger group of individuals was willing to stage an official cover-up to make it appear that the Kennedy assassination was simply a horrible accident without political significance.

*** end quote ***

And, that is why dear Sheeple, we will never get the truth about anything.

The gooferment is corrupt.

Slowly, but surely, with age, I am becoming an anarchist.

The gooferment is the meme that kills and enslaves us.

We need to find a better answer.

“Remember the end of WW2 when the Nazis put their children into the field. A lot of GIs, who couldn’t envision a little kid being deadly accurate with a rifle, didn’t come home.”
    — CHURCH 10●19●62 Chapter 62

+++++

His team was on patrol. The LT was in back, Top was in front, Jimmy from “Hicksville” somewhere was his buddy. They came upon a Raghead Boy beating a puppy with a stick. No ROE for this. Jimmy took the pup; I administered a boot butt. And we moved on.

+++++

Months later, one night, evening really, the dog went nuts. Jimmy was up; I was dozing our hole. “The kid’s in the wire. Coming for his dog?”, he whispered. ROE was to waste him. Jimmy was still from “Hicksville”. The Raghead Boy made it in; as did his unseen friends. Suicide bombers. Carnage. What was left of Jimmy went to “Hicksville” for burial. No one made it but me. LT, Top, the the team, even the dog. All wasted. I got hit; shrapnel and some pieces of the Raghead Boy. Maybe even his friends.

Really, they should have killed me. They did kill me. Just was taking a while to die.

+++++

Back in the world. Partial D. Paid for room and booze. Even some weed. Family mostly didn’t understand. Unks and Unks in law who’d been to the “Republic of” did. Just drifting. Trying to save the unsavable. Why me?

+++++

One night, drifting, found an “urban yute”. Beating a puppy with a stick.

I flashed.

Saved the puppy. Beat the kid with the same stick. His momma was watching and called the cops.

+++++

I was convicted of misdemeanor assault by virtue of diminished capacity. Quietly shipped to a VA hospital for whatever. Doing an indeterminate stretch of at least 15. No big deal. Just waiting to join my team.

Year later, I heard that the “urban yute” had done a home invasion robbery. With some friends. Tied up the family. Got the goods. His friends left; he didn’t. Stopped to rape the kids, made the parents watch, then beat them all to death with a stick. He got juvee until he was 21.

Guess I was “Jimmy”. I should have killed both “Raghead” boys. What could they have done? Given mey 30. Sent me to my patrol. No good deed ….

Three Rules for Living through the Second Depression
by Chaz Valenza

*** begin quote ***

If you haven’t already noticed, the police are out in force and quick to pull the ticket book trigger. Here in New Jersey, though the civil and criminal courts were subject to cost-cutting furlough days, no such thing happened in the money making municipal courts. Basically, now is not the time to get caught being late with payments or cheating on taxes, nor the moment to get on any bureaucrat’s building code violations clipboard. As the tax & budget shortfalls grow, expect to be hunted down for the most insignificant violation of any law, code or tax regulation.

Traffic stops have always been, imho, about revenue!

SCOTUS: No right to DNA tests for convicts
MSNBC

*** begin quote ***

“The Supreme Court said Thursday that convicts have no constitutional right to test DNA evidence in hopes of proving their innocence long after they were found guilty of a crime. The decision may have limited impact because the federal government and 47 states already have laws that allow convicts some access to genetic evidence. Testing has led to the exoneration of at least 232 people who had been found guilty of murder, rape and other violent crimes.” (06/18/09)

Man who tracked Che for CIA awarded $1 billion in lawsuit
By Luisa Yanez | Miami Herald

In a strange twist of fate in 1963, he was contacted by the CIA to help track Guevara.

Leading a squad of three Cuban exiles into the Bolivian jungle, Villoldo helped track down Guevara for the CIA.

”There was a certain amount of satisfaction in burying the man who I felt was responsible for my father’s death, ” he said.

There’s something Shakespearian in this story. Or “Godfatherian”! (Is there such a word? From the Godfather movie. Where Michael Corleone revenges himself.)
