The Violent Radicalization Homegrown Terrorism
"The Violent Radicalization Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007," HB 1955, just went to the Senate. Give pause for thought about what may be happening with this potentially very dangerous Bill as presented in its current form with vague definitions: Is it a potential return to McCarthyism, the persecution of innocent Americans?

Also, just in time for your holiday gift giving <smile>, we are pleased to announce the debut of our new print publication, the Populist Patriot. Freely available for your perusal online, our pamphleteer tabloid is available in hard copy (for those who don't do the Internet) and makes a highly meaningful alternative to a conventional holiday gift.
Especially considering that if HB 1955
passes, the work of groups such as
Committee For Honest Law Enforcement could be 'criminalized' on the
whim of an elite (self-appointed) collective of (our nation's most
powerful) 'elected' officials. As history teaches, "Absolute power
My response: Earnestly, I hear (with my
heart) what you're saying. And though, based on my actions, it may seem
that I am foresworn otherwise, I detest the conventions of 'organized'
groups; the hierarchy & dogma that thwarts creative initiative. It is
rampant and longstanding. (remember Luane's and my audacity at taking
our job descriptions seriously, al la "The World's Biggest Potluck
Supper" annual convention idea...??? <which I still believe was a stroke
of genius and remember with great aghastness when Jim's spouse Janet
said to me --- after the whole concept was humiliatingly disused and
dismissed to oblivion by the rest of the board --- that it was just "too
big an idea"... that she and the others 'just didn't have the
experience' to pull of something so 'big'... which I asserted then and
reconfirm now is no way to go about 'changing' the systems of the
world... which was -- I thot -- supposed to be what that whole thing was
about, but I wildly digress)...
pleads 'no contest' on harassment charges...
To my first hand experience now suffering the boon of hindsight, from the moment our lives were threatened by my daughter's jilted boyfriend last March and we went to local law enforcement seeking help, our family's life has been hellacious.
Repeatedly and redundantly we have been treated with disdain and pandered to (by 'officials' of our 'justice' system); our time has been wasted by (alleged) investigators who (of their own admission) started looking into the facts of the case l-o-n-g AFTER charges had been filed and so (we were told) it was not possible to prosecute these violent wrongdoings to the full extend of the law [see PDF notes on harassment law in Arkansas] which, by legislated definition, convicted Daniel Watts of First Degree Stalking (Class B Felony) and Terroristic Threatening (Class D Felony).
Consequences of conviction on these charges demand at least 2 to 8 years imprisonment and up to a $10,000 fine.
Instead, because of blatant incompetence and/or what certainly seems now to be willful collusion the on the part of law enforcement and prosecutorial officials to 'protect' a local 'snitch', Daniel Watts was charged only with Harassment (Class A Misdemeanor) and 'got off' with a 'no contest' plea-agreement which will cost him $100 per month for the next 5 months.
Pretty cheap dues for fully-vested membership in the good ol boys wife beater club. And it is not just my family being terrorized by 'the system' this way: It is all of us.
By divine providence we were (on Friday,
November 2, 2007, during open court) given a living illustration of the
outrageousness of the arbitrariness (and complete indifference to 'women
as human beings') that was upcoming in Shalom's case in an unrelated yet
factually similar matter that came before the bar preceding the
(pretense of the) 'trial' of Daniel Watts.
Procedurally, she and her complaints were relegated to the land of 'persona non gratis' it being emphatically illustrated that what she had to say really didn't matter; her will was to be ignored.
Given by 'her' attorney (aka: the
Prosecuting Attorney who is paid at OUR collaborative expense) only one
option (which amounted to letting the man who violated her sanity off
the hook with a teeny slap on the wrists) she was doing as she had been
told she must do. Instructed that there was no other recourse (aka:
daddy knows best), she resigned herself (as all women too often do --
because we have been subjugated and battered into reluctant servitude of
our relegated fate) to the 'voluntary' sacrifice of her honor.
She wanted vindication but probably more
she wanted the court to order him to get some psychological help... so
that he would be able to see that what he had done was 'criminal'; so
that he would be accountable for his actions... apologize and make
Factually, this tiny slap on the wrist actually earned 'bragging rights' for this vile coward amongst his chauvinistic clan, at the same time renewing his confidence that his 'insider connections' ensure a 'get out of jail free pass' for whenever he decides to brutalize women again.
All of which of course is horrendous enough in its own right, but now consider that since this whole thing started it has become an openly established fact that all the while Daniel Watts was voraciously terrorizing us he was a Confidential Informant in the employ of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office. And that everybody from Sheriff Bradley to Judge Aldworth to DPA Acklin knew (or should have known) this fact... yet rather than throwing the book at this evil f*ck and making an example of him so that others never dare to follow suit, our 'law enforcement system' is PROTECTING him and thus sanctioning his abusive, terroristic, domineering and violent behavior as 'the way we do things around here'...
Frankly, this whole thing sucks and I am not alone in my disgust for this malevolence. Take a look at what other have to say about Confidential Informants and notice that not a word of it is good. Then get in touch with The Committee For Honest Law Enforcement in Van Buren County and join our crusade for the revival of a genuine justice system to aggressively interdict and incarcerate all VIOLENT CRIME OFFENDERS and at the same time end the use of Confidential Informants forevermore....
