Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Miller Time
« on: February 22, 2006, 02:20:00 AM »
Anyone who endured Virgil Miller Newton and his equally sadistic wife Ruth Ann absolutely has got to get ?Help At Any Cost.  Chapter 8, Miller Time is an account of Lulu Corter's trial and specifically Miller's testimony.  Maia attended the trial.  Phil was brilliant!  The description of Newton's face turning "an even more vivid crimson" at having his tactics, credentials and word even questioned, let alone impeached is deeply satisfying. Equally so is when the judge gets so irritated with Newton's demeanor and evasive, broad answers during his attorney's direct that he actually begins questioning Newton so much that the jury is sent out because Newton's attorney is claiming the judge is "skeptical".  The judge shoots back, "I am skeptical.  We're walking through fantasyland here and there really comes a point when the court cannot sit here like a bump on a log and accept it."

For me Maia tied everything that I already knew, and a lot that I didn't know into a clear, concise package that connects some of the final dots.  She covers all it all.  The account of Aaron Bacon will bring you to tears.  I knew the story, but not the details.  What that poor kid suffered and for how long before dying.....there's no words for it.

I'm sending a copy to Miller tomorrow.  Think he'll read it?

To the extent that a society limits its government to policing functions which curb the individuals who engage in aggressive and criminal actions, and conducts its economic affairs on the basis of free and willing exchange, to that extent domestic peace prevails. When a society departs from this norm, its governing class begins, in effect, to make war upon the rest of the nation. A situation is created in which everyone is victimized by everyone else under the fiction of each living at the expense of all.

Maybe there is some justice in the world after all.  Muther fucker needs to be taken out back and have his balls cut off and have everyone watch til he bleeds to death.  This poor kid was 11 (ELEVEN) years old.  The absolute terror she must have gone through.

Sorry if I sound harsh, this happened not too far from a friend of mines.    Could've been her kid.

For those unfamiliar this was the Carlie Brucia case a year and a half ago or somewhere around there.  The guy was caught on a car wash security camera snatching her.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Newton's defeated in Madeira Beach
« on: May 30, 2005, 05:20:00 PM »
The cupola must come down!!  Small victory, but a victory nontheless.  Enjoy!!  ::drummer::  ::rocker::  ::rocker::  ::cheers::  ::cheers::  ::cheers::  ::cheers::  :smokin:  :smokin:  :smokin:  :smokin:

Symbol of controversy
Monday, May 30, 2005
A controversy in Madeira Beach has apparently been resolved.

Residents got upset when the Christ at the Sea church broke the city's zoning guidelines by displaying religious items -- a dome known as a cupola with a cross.

However, now the roof shingles where the dome was attached are by the roadway and the cupola has been taken down.

"Well, I'm glad to see it come down," said local resident Ann Bunting. "It was out of character with the neighborhood. If you look around at the other homes, you don't see similar things and I'm glad to see it down."

Most people in the area had the same reaction.

"As you can see, it's a little residential area and just to have a big dome with a cross on it, how about if everyone else stuck one on top of their house," said resident Byron Holsombach.

The structure once housed rental units, but the city allowed it to become a limited-use church if no religious symbols were displayed.

On May 23, both sides went to a special master, who ended the controversy by deciding the cupola must come down within 10 days, along with a few other changes.

The man who runs the Christ at the Sea Foundation, Miller Newton, says it's only a small chapel with monetary services, not an official church like neighbors say it is.

Nevertheless, residents are glad the cupola was taken down Monday.

"The other religious insignia aren't as intrusive upon the scenery, but the cupola did stick out and was totally inappropriate," said Bunting.

According to the church operator and neighbors, it doesn't look like there will be any more legal battles in the case.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / The stigma we were left with
« on: May 25, 2005, 03:30:00 AM »
God I hated that.  I grew up an only child in an upper middle class neighborhood.  By the time my parents had me they were so deep into their own wreck of a marriage that they had little time to give to a kid.  My dad had these huge expectations on me but never really bothered to try and teach me anything about life, or even to talk to me much for that matter.  Mom was just an emotional basket case ever since I can remember.  When they divorced I was 14 and at the beginning of whatever rebellion I had in me (not much, I was more the lazy stoner).  So they freaked out and put me in there.  Meanwhile all my cousins are out doing the same shit I was but they're allowed the luxury of growing out of it.  One is an attorney and going back to school to be a dentist because she discovered she hates law.  Another is a nuclear engineer.  Then there's me. The fuck up.   By the time my parents, and then Straight were done with me I was a fucking mess and then to constantly be compared to those two and constantly "monitored", with the family just watching and waiting for any slip up so they could all shout in unison "See?  I TOLD ya!" was really just too much sometimes.  That part I did buy into and it really fucked me up for a really long time.

Sorry for the rambling.  The late night rantings of a stoned insomniac.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / The "gift of awareness"
« on: May 23, 2005, 10:03:00 AM »
Does anyone else remember being told that if we ever left we'd do worse drugs, be more miserable etc. etc.  because we had now "received the gift of awareness" and would now know just exactly how bad of a fuck up we really were?

14 ... der+guilty

After a Pinellas County jury Wednesday found St. Petersburg NAACP president Darryl Rouson guilty of trespassing, his attorney asked for a poll of the jury.

One by one, they repeated the guilty verdict. But the bespectacled woman seated on the second row hesitated. "Guilty," she said, appearing reluctant.

Pinellas Judge Dorothy Vaccaro asked Cheryl Karner if she was sure.

Karner paused and looked down, on the verge of tears. She said nothing for about 10 seconds when finally Vaccaro broke in.

"I'm not convinced this is a true and accurate verdict," Vaccaro told the six-member jury. "I'm sending you back there again" to deliberate.

About a half hour later, the jury returned - with another guilty verdict.

This time, each juror said confidently that Rouson was guilty of misdemeanor trespassing stemming from his visit in June to a tobacco and accessories shop he criticizes for selling legal smoking pipes he calls "death utensils."

As she left the courthouse, Karner said she was conflicted about finding Rouson guilty.

"The man's a good man," she said. "He has a good purpose. It's sad that maybe there was a mistake. I have a problem convicting someone of trespassing when you are trying to do good."

Rouson, a lawyer, said the guilty verdict surprised him. "I'm a little surprised by it but undaunted," he said after the trial.

In June Rouson went to Purple Haze Tobacco & Accessories, 1437 34th St. S, looked over a pipe and asked manager John Pena how a "rock" could be smoked in it, referring to crack cocaine, prosecutors argued.

Pena, testifying on the first of the two-day trial, said he took the pipe from Rouson and repeatedly asked him to leave because signs in the store warn customers they aren't allowed to mention illegal drugs. Rouson, even after the store's owner showed up, refused, prosecutors said.

"Mr. Rouson exceeded his welcome, he was asked to leave and he refused. He trespassed," Pinellas-Pasco Assistant State Attorney Broderick Taylor said.

But Rouson, and his co-counselor and friend Jay Hebert, painted his visit to Purple Haze as as act of protest. The attorneys called to the stand a Catholic priest from Virginia who trained Rouson in nonviolent protest and civil disobedience.

"The mission was pure, the effort was right," Rouson said after the trial. "I'm going to do everything I can to attack this on all levels, which includes a legislative level as well as the street level," he said referring to pending state legislation targeting retailers that sell merchandise he says is used for illegal drugs.

Leo Calzadilla, owner of Purple Haze, asked the judge to sentence Rouson to the maximum 60 days in jail.

"He got what he wanted out of this, and what he wanted was media attention," Calzadilla said. "We all fell into it. I would have liked to see him do time. He's not into it because he's (against drugs)."

Vaccaro, who before sentencing Rouson, noted his anti-drug efforts were "admirable," withheld adjudication, meaning there will be no formal finding of guilt if he successfully completes the other terms of his sentence.

Vaccaro sentenced Rouson to six months' probation, 25 hours of community service, $500 in court costs, and $119 in restitution for the glass pipes Calzadilla said Rouson broke while at the store. It's unclear what action, if any, the Florida bar will take against Rouson, Hebert said.

He said Vaccaro asked Karner, the juror, about her verdict when he noticed Karner paused with her head down during the first polling.

"That gave me concern," Hebert said. "She had real questions about guilt or innocence."

Rouson said the trial's outcome won't curb his anti-drug efforts.

"I'm unafraid," he said. "I'm undaunted by what has happened. We may take some different tactics, we may use some different approaches. Civil disobedience and nonviolent confrontation are effective . . . but I may have to couple it with some other things."

During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry, and persecution.
