a small victory
« on: May 15, 2005, 04:04:00 PM »
...Uhh ... i was looking through these posts the other day and some brother or sister was asking if anyone ever recieved an apology from staff.  i can't find the post now but thought this little story might be of some interest to some.
   One day at straight, springfield in about 1986 or so i was on 1st phase having returned from a cop-out.  i was rebellious and as well as refusing to motivate i wouldn't write my nightly M.I.s.  That morning in a Basics Rap led by Tony Espilliange(sp?) all the people who had refused to write their "moral inventories" the night before were stood up and confronted by the group.  Ther were about 9 of us standing up.  At some point Tony Espilliange(sp?) said "All you people standing up are assholes".  At that point i sat down.  i would not tolerate a personal attack like that.  The other 8 misbehavers remained standing.  After i sat down a 5th phaser who i could name but won't mocked me by calling me John Wayne and tried to force me to stand back up.  i immediately took a swing at his face hitting him in his glasses and leaving a cut where the rim of his specs had been pressed into his cheek.  Of course at that point i was restrained and thrown on the ground.
    Later that same day i was sitting back in group w/my hand down when Tony Espiliange(sp?) and executive staff member, Dean Mistretta pulled me out of group and took me into the infirmary.  No one was in that room but the three of us, so there were no witnesses. Dean made Tony apologize to me for calling me an asshole. Tony was actually humble to me about it.  It was quick but it was an apology and somehow i felt i had made my point.  It was my own personal victory.  Fuck Straight.  Peace.

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.
