This Is Not Hollywood

I was going to call this Mugging Update.  But reading a review at Ammoland of Michelle Gesse's book, Bogus Allegations, I was struck by the injustice suffered by her husband, herself and family over a false allegation of threatening someone with a gun.  Let her words be your guide here:

And before I give you my view of what has so far happened, I just want to say that what's going on is nothing compared to the horrors suffered by the Gesses and by so many more sucked into the criminal justice system.  I think of all those railroaded by the rogue org BATFE and many more tentacles of gov.  What's happened here doesn't even come close to what the state has inflicted elsewhere.

Mrs Gesse comments about television shows and how the personas make it look like getting a lawyer implies guilt.  In fact, one can notice this on any of the 'cop' shows.  It's usually the baddies who clam up and demand a mouthpiece.  The 'innocent ' spill their guts to the cops, with blithely nothing to fear, since they have nothing to fear.  Uhuh.

My post mugging research uncovered a term cops have for those who lawyer up.  They are labeled 'uncooperative'.  God, how things have changed.  I'll talk about that later.

Mrs Gesse's comments re Hollywood remind me of what the detective assigned to my case said.

This guy was a fast talking glad handing type.  He appeared to be suffering from hyperactivity.  The next morning after the mugging he called.  Without thinking, I allowed him to visit.  He produced several sheets of computer printed mug shots and said curtly to identify the guys apprehended the night before who alledgedly mugged me.

I was tired, having not slept and I saw the faces but couldn't focus.  I waved my hand at them and said maybe they were there.  I wasn't sure.  He immediately pointed or thumped his finger at several faces, so fast I couldn't keep up, saying those were the suspects.  I asked for a lineup.  He laughed and said this wasn't Hollywood.  They didn't do that.  WTF?  I felt sure if I saw the guys in the flesh I could pick them out.  He shook his head and said I had my chance.

As for my gun, the shop had faxed the wrong serial #.  He said it wasn't my gun.  I assured him it was as the uniforms the night before had a description of the perps and my Glock.  This he just brushed aside and I said I'd get the shop to fax the correct number.  They did so.

Before he checked the fax, this paragon of police work kept insisting it was NOT my gun.  i told him I could ID it by a nick in the end of the barrel.  He had trouble comprehending me.  I told him it was where the bullet came out.  With that, he withdrew his weapon with a rapid jerk and at least pointed it barrel down.  Then he asked me to point to the part of the gun I meant.  I kid you not.  You can't make this bs up or even write it in Hollywood lol.  When he did this, I thought of where David Codrea got his 'only one' appellation.  The cop who told the kids it was ok for him to handle his gun and he was the only one there qualified to do so, subsequently shooting his own leg.  Thank God this only one did not shoot himself nor me.

Later on the phone, he said the gun did not have the any mark.  I said he didn't look in the right place.  He hrmphed at that and added maybe they switched it.  Again WTF?  These thugs have that sophisticated a system of getting stolen guns on the street?  And in that short time between my mugging, robbery and their apprehension?  What a maroon this guy was.  I suggested he merely check the fax with the correct serial #.  Sheesh.  He claimed it hadn't arrived yet.  He was going off duty soon and wouldn't be back til Saturday.  It was Tuesday.

He called Saturday.  Asked if I would like to ID perps.  Called me Michael.  Then supposedly realized he had called the wrong guy.  You see, the mokes robbed another guy the night they nicked me.  Idiots.  Our star detective then said I still was disqualified from identifying anyone, but he curtly said it was my gun after all.  Duh.  He allowed I could have it back in 6 to 8 weeks.  As of now, it's almost 14 weeks.     

At 10 weeks I sent our Columbo an email reminding him of what he said re my property.  He sent a curt reply that the case was still pending and he would talk to the prosecutor assigned the case about releasing it early.  Uhuh.

He had also said previously he could bring it to me.  Hmmmm.  I was under the impression one had to go in person and retrieve property, whatever it was, but especially a gun.  Hmmmm.

I know cases can be strung out.  They wanted a stolen gun charge on these guys.  My mugging has been ignored.  I have not even talked to a prosecutor.

My lawyer, a guy who has handled a lot of legal matters for me, carries.  I notified him of what happened.  I asked for further advice and had cc'd my email to the detective.  He called while I was ironically walking.  The reception was poor and he said to call him next morning.  I did.  Got his machine.  Left a message.  No return call.  Called again several days later.  No return call.  Called just this last Monday.  As of this writing, no return call.  Hmmmmm.

I had also cc'd the email to the Commander East District.  He called.  Gasp.  Said the detective was from downtown, not one of his District guys.  So, there was nothing he could do.  Uhuh.  I'd been given his name specifically by the uniform the night of my mugging.  He told me if I was being stalled about my gun's return to call the Commander.  Uhuh.

Oh, yes.  The solicitous uniform who brought me home that night and returned to declare they retrieved my gun has been impossible to reach.  Night after the incident, he called.  Twice since, I left messages.  Nothing.  First time a woman courteously took my message and he called me.  Those other two times a gruff guy gave me a third degree and at one point seemed not to know who the officer was.  Uhuh.

There is more to this, particularly about it being black on white crime.  It is increasing nationwide and interestingly since the current occupier of the Oval Office took over.  It is also being swept under the rug nationwide including flashmob crimes.  Imagine if I'd been black and it was 3 white guys.  And all the cops happened to be white.  How about that?  Yep this ugly white m*****f***** (repeatedly yelled at and taunted-made em work though -s-) is left in the lurch.

I will get my gun back and get tothe bottom of this crapfest.

Also, I still have contacts Mr Detective doesn't know I have.  One said and I quote,'He's stupid.'  Well he could be covering up his incompetence -s-.

The bugs got my addy and phone.  I have had a little harassment.  I am vigilent and armed -s-.  One of the cops actually said 'You have other guns?'  Uhuh. 

I told this mastermind dick (short for detective like in Hollywood lol) that they might try burglary or worse.  He laughed and said he 'had been doing this 26 years and never heard of that'.  WTF?  That's common MO for many perps.  Where the hell did he police? 

I'll update this as soon as I can.  Keep thinking of me -s-.

Red Abe Dawn

Well as Bette Davis' character said in All About Eve,'Fasten your seatbelts.  It's going to be a bumpy night.'  I am daring to criticize Abe Lincoln.  Or, as his fans might say, I am assailing a great American.  You decide.

It isn't exactly a groundswell, thanks to the preponderance of MSM/historian bias, but there is evidence that Abe Lincoln had Marxist ties or at least flirted with it.  You can make what you like out of the letter Karl wrote Abe in 1864.  What a hoot.

The (Fill in the blank with whichever title you give the conflict of North and South ca 1861-1865.) 'War' boiled down to property vs labor.  Southern aristocracy vs Northern workingmen.  Nonsense.

Debate me if you like, but here is my take.

Slavery was on its way out.  Yet elements all over the country sought to maintain it if feasible.  And don't get me started on Africans selling fellow Africans to whites/Arabs (NB).  Tribal war begat business.  Even in the 'good ol' days' the USSC made pardon the pun, dreadful decisions such as Dred Scott.  There has been rot in the Republic all along.  It's just most gangrenous now.

Lincoln was in the pocket of Northern industrialists.  Talk about labor, which eventually reached new depths in 19th century sweatshops, mines etc (including children).  The South was being pressured into what it considered tribute at their expense.

You might say it's odd if Abe were a Marxist, that he would blatantly do the bidding of businessmen.  Not at all.  Politics and business are old bedfellows.  Look around today, here, Russia, China, Dubai etc.  Communism, after all, is gov monopoly of industry.  It does what it says it is eradicating.  It exploits the workers.

Marx wrote during the War of his admiration for Lincoln, 'the single minded son of the working class', his support for the Union Army, Republican Party and his hope for the workers to be promoted and to unite with those 'struggling' in Europe. 

Slavery issues were just political tools of expediency.  Abe never considered Blacks as equals and neither did Marx.  They were convenient leverage to institute what was a desired goal.

The South was following the precepts of the Founders in dissolving one union and establishing another.  I believe both sides would eventually have peacefully reunited after industrialization normalized and the Fed was put in its place.

Instead, a bloodbath ensued and spurred on by pride.  It left a rift still felt and played upon, the better to manipulate, federalize and control. 

And those banks, the bane of our Republic, had fueled continued slave trade.  Onlt 7% of Southerners had slaves.  Of course, it was 7% too much.  Lincoln's policies merely put slaves on another plantation and paved the way for a Fed which ever grows and increasingly enslaves today.

What I find disturbing is the foistered cult of fictional/childish textbook worship of personality re Abe.  The fantastic Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, though obviously fiction, demonizes the South horribly and deifies Abe.  And the film Lincoln, while well done and acted by the wonderful Daniel Day-Lewis and others, does something similar under the guise of historical drama..

Interesting that the occupier of the Oval Office greatly admires him.  I suspect this Lincoln worship is on purpose proxy of the current Soetero worship.  All said, Abe was much more of everything than O could ever be. 

Reminds me of the demonization of Jefferson in the form of trying to make him a womanizing hypocrite.  It was, in my opinion, Clinton's people's attempt to diffuse his less than stellar record re women and to point out as his middle name was Jefferson, that they were both great men with, shall we say, flaws (and to deflect examination of treasonous activity re China).  Flaws aplenty for that charlatan and no way did he come close to the genius of Thomas Jefferson, who indeed was quite human.

We should never make the Founders, nor anyone past present nor future godlike.  Remembering our humanity warts and all is our saving grace.  We should never be afraid to examine history and dig for truth.

Believe what you will about all this.  But bear in mind where we are at and how we got here.

We are great as a people first, then a Republic of States with the Fed as a glue or common ground.  That is all it is supposed to be.

Lincoln almost destroyed that with a strong national gov, dominating the States.  He did not comepletely succeed.

But we have a long way to go in order to undo his mess and subsequent debacles.

As I say, bit by bit we reconstruct what has been deconstructed.

History will not take care of itself.  We must live each day and fight to regain our Liberty or rather to make it plain it is here and will not go away.

Masque Of The Red Death

Seems appropriate post 'election' (whatever that is anymore).  I posted this url on my FB in response to the results:  It is Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens.  I considered it appropriate what with the macabre fascination with our marxist in chief.

Dancing with death and the sickening-sweet stench of collectivism seems like a natural combo to me -s-.  I also show the correlation between this and Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe.

The premise is fairly simple.  A plague has ravaged the land.  Prince Prospero has sequestered himself with a 1000 other nobles in a fortified abbey to escape the Red Death.  They throw a party to amuse themselves and while away the time as they await the end of the plague.  They are indifferent to the sufferings outside and have even welded the doors shut.

Seven rooms are colored specifically blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet and the last room is black with red windows.  I'm sure Poe had no idea of homeland security's color code lol.  And as for all save the last room, I'll leave it to the reader's individual interpretation.

A mysterious figure garbed in bloody robes and death mask, obviously representing a victim of the Red Death, is noticed by the crowd.  Prospero chases him and when facing him, falls dead.  the crowd makes to grab the figure and discover nothing, no one underneath. 

Of course, the figure is the Red Death itself and the crowd immediately contract and die from the plague in the black room.  The final line of the story sums up: "And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."

In light or darkness of the election the symbolism is obvious.

We must not ignore even in these perilous times, our problems.  That will lead to our undoing. 

More than ever, we must face the darkness and in comiong against it take charge.

As for elitists who are oblivious to suffering, they will find that same danger in their midst.  It will be their undoing.

We will survive the Red (sic) Death of collectivism.  My ancestors and many more lived through the Black Death of the 1300s.  Common sense and the old ways won out.

Be aware and prepare.  We will live through our deadliest times.  The collectivists and those who would be our masters always underestimate us. 

We will endure.  Not just words but fact.

Rewatched it.  As all movies do, it takes liberties with history.  But I'm reminded it's the spirit, the message that gets through.

This film speaks to me of what we can endure for love and duty.  It tells us how we live and die can be entwined. 

The wrong man became emperor.  The right man for the job is not only maligned, but he is almost murdered.  His wife and son are killed, in most heinous ways and his lands destroyed.

I wouldn't draw a direct parallel to our recent election -s-.  Certainly chicanery and deceit, Chicago style played a part.  However, neither guy was right for the job of President.  I'm not beating a dead horse, so come to your own conclusions.  But, we need someone who begins to reestablish our Constitutional Republic and marxists and rinos just do not fit the bill.

We are fortunate, in that our system is not as autocratic as the Roman Empire.  People are supposed to rule.  Yet we invariably hand over responsibility to those who do the bidding of those who would be our masters.

And I am appalled at the ridiculous slamming that occurs from people who place the blame on a party.  How twisted.  And for those of us who hit the nail on the head, we are often relegated to marginalization, a looney bin for social misfits.  Or worse, like some of good guy Maximus' supporters, there is death and decimation.

Take Gladiator as a study in fortitude.  We may have to endure seemingly beyond our limits events that 'try men's souls'.  We actually are now.  Many of us are being harrassed, jailed and some killed.  It will be so for the price of Freedom/Liberty is more than eternal vigilence.  It is fighting an enemy that never sleeps.

We must learn to sleep less and more.  We can use their tactics against them.  Figure it out.
