I don’t know if the last decade will ever be completely behind me. There are parts of it that were necessary to change both my understanding, and direction. That, I can accept. The things that I can not excuse, remain. Learning from those experiences does not add value to the specific activities. Learning does bring me principled conviction. Today, I can describe that resolve. Yesterday, I couldn’t.
A little vindication is nice. For 5 years, I was the voice people expected to hear, when they caled The American Freedom Network. I filmed and produced videos that went all over the world. I did audio production that they haven’t duplicated, since. When I left AFN, I thought everyone in alternative news media knew who I was and what I was about. Most of the last 3 years felt like I had disappeared from the face of the earth. I never gave up. I continued writing under a wide variety of circumstances. I talked with everyone who came along and I follow more than 70 blogs. I speed read and comment on posts on many websites. Today was a major breakthrough. The previous record for daily views on my blog site was 93, on July 4th. Today, I have 278, at the moment. Michael Corbin always told me that he needed me as a writer. Dr. Stan Montieth
said that he really needed someone who could research the way I could. As it turns out, I need to be all of those things, and everything I was before I became homeless. It’s been a long, hard road, but I’m home now. I have a wonderful woman in my life that really cares about the things that are important to me.
Purpose Driven Defects: Separate But Equal
I have always maintained that the 14th Amendment didn’t free any slaves. It really placed everyone under bondage to the Federal corporation. Here is proof, displayed in the Longmont, ( CO ) Municipal Court, yesterday. I was there to answer to charges of Prohibited Camping and Littering. As I shall demonstrate, some people are in actual practice and outcome, more equal than others.
In the case before mine, a young man changed the details in his testimony during subsequent questioning. In summation, the City Prosecutor stated that the defendant lied during his testimony, and for that reason, should be found Guilty. He was.
In my case, the police officer stated that I told him that I had stayed overnight at the location of the violation. Upon my questioning, I asked the following questions:
George : “What was the first question that you asked me, when you approached me?”
Officer: “I don’t recall”
George: “Did you ask me anything about my situation?”
Officer: “I don’t recall.”
This is interesting. Two straight questions, and this police officer whiffed on both of them. We continue.
George: “Did I not tell you that I was homeless?”
Officer: “Yes, you did.”
George: “Then, I did not tell you that I stayed overnight at that location, in those words. Is that correct?”
Officer: “That is correct.”
This is getting fascinating. In the prior trial, the defendant was penalized with loss of credibility for changing his testimony. Yet in my case, this police officer enters a fabricated falsehood in testimony, and admits that he testified to a specific statement that, in reality had not been spoken. This is the same discrepancy that got the defendant in the previous trial, convicted. Yet, at the end of my trial, this police officer’s credibility is not damaged or diminished. The Judge described him as a “fine, upstanding police officer.”
This is clearly unequal application of the rules of evidence. It certainly is unequal application of the consequences of perjury. This is the central issue of this case.
At one point in my trial, the City Prosecutor faulted me for not volunteering information to the police officer, at the time of the citation. I asked the police officer:
“Was I under obligation to volunteer information at the time of the incident?”
I asked the officer, not the prosecutor. The prosecutor interrupted before the officer could answer. He acknowledged that I did have the right to remain silent. Yet, this “right” was described as a negative in summation, against me. Again, some people are more equal than others.
The most interesting genocide aspect of the trial was that I made my case for the reason that I felt intimidated in that situation. When I related the details of what happened in WWII to people with my family names, the prosecutor was so fixated on the police officer not being a Nazi, that he would not hear my words. I was not allowed to finish my statement. The judge ordered me back to my seat. This is an important moment in the precedent set in this courtroom. If I had been allowed to finish my statement, this would have been a critically important point.
A police officer does not have to be a Nazi or wear any of the uniform details of a Nazi, to intimidate. Furthermore, no aggressive or threatening behavior is required for intimidation. All that is required is that the officer have the power ( weaponry) and opportunity to assault someone, without witnesses present who could dispute the officer’s account of the incident. The prosecutor’s behavior was fascinating. His reasoning is why he won’t have the slightest twinge of conscience, when he is “just following orders”. Corporatism has taken on many forms, over the years. The present Corporate Oligarchy is just a more refined, updated version of the same old Fascism.
The implications of such cases as mine will become more apparent as time goes on. We can not allow judges and prosecutors to create a safe environment for police brutality and civil rights violations. If cases against displaced, disenfranchised and dispossessed people are dismissed. convictions overturned, and a few public officials serve jail time for the misconduct described in this article, I will have done my civic duty.
