Uh, it was an accident…..

Oh, please make it stop! My face hurts from laughing!

GRANTSVILLE STATE POLICE LOST METH EVIDENCE – John Richards Charges Will Likely Be Dropped

But seriously, it seems like these guys would realise that they are wasting HUGE amounts of taxpayers money by making so many mistakes. To say nothing of ripping citizens lives to shreds, only to tell them later, “oh, we messed up, you can go home now”…. I wonder what the real story is? Maybe they hoped if the evidence went AWOL and charges were dropped, that the “Lone Meth Ranger” would just go away…

What I DON’T understand is why the majority of “mistakes” being made involve METH busts. Or maybe those are just the ones we tend to hear about. Actually, this is a very common occurance.

There is a VERY WELL KNOWN drug dealer from Roane County who has been busted for meth FOUR times now in a year and a half or so(that we know of). The details are hard to come by. Roane County Reporter has been contacted with requests for news articles that SHOULD be in the archives but aren’t, with no response. But anyhow, this particular guy, well, the FIRST time he was busted, they had to throw it out due to BAD PAPERWORK. The second time I suppose he bailed out, the third time, bailed again, the fourth time bailed again. His bail eventually got so high (cash only) that one could only imagine that there are FEW in this corner of the world who could possibly come up with that kind of cash, but, surprise, surprise, they did. I wonder after the second time why they even allowed him to bail out at all… And his cases have yet to go to court. Of course, when you have friends in high places it helps. YEARS ago, this same individual was bringing large amounts of drugs into Roane County, and someone I KNOW walked into the police station and VOLUNTEERED to wear a wire on this man. He was TURNED DOWN.
The reason I bring up this story now, is because the LAST time this guy was caught, only a couple months ago, he was arrested, handcuffed, and carried off to jail, but A WEEK LATER the arresting officer discovered that drugs had been hidden in his cruiser and he had been driving around with them in there for a WHOLE WEEK! At least this is the story we are told.
Now there are rumblings of yet ANOTHER meth case in Roane County that may have gone awry with missing evidence.
And of course there is the case of the quickie search warrant obtained solely by using false statements made by juveniles pointing fingers at someone who had actually been incarcerated for over a month when the alleged “crime” was committed. Statements which could have been proven to be false had the police or the magistrate simply looked at the records…

All I can say is this all makes for some great entertainment for the masses and excitement and drama (and a paycheck) for the “authorities”.

Big Business Versus Roane County Court

Something truely amazing has happened in the Roane County Court system! A war of evils between the corruption of big business and the viciousness of the WV legal system. The right arm of the Devil doing battle with the left…

ROANE JURY NOT ‘DAZZLED BY BRILLIANCE’ IN ROYALTY SUIT – Company Says WV Court System Unfair

Jury’s decision
subject of debate

Jury awards $400 million verdict

Certainly we can appreciate that the oil and gas industry in general is a pretty self serving bunch with money being more important than anything, and this particular big business most likely does nothing more than what the majority of other big corporations do behind closed doors. But, amazingly enough, this one got CAUGHT and had to “pay the piper”. Oh, they weren’t happy. They discovered just what it’s like to be victimized by the legal system in West Virginia. And perhaps they will be instrumental in bringing some of these problems to light.

In the meantime, think about it. If the Roane County justice system can do THIS to a HUGE CORPORATION, just think what it is like for the “little guy”… You don’t have a chance.

Smoking bans -making more people criminals

Anybody remember those wonderful public meetings the Health Department had a couple years ago about the proposed smoking bans in the area? Giving the people a chance to speak their piece was so “democratic” of them, don’t you think? I can’t believe that anyone was taken in by all their posturing. Because it matters not what the average citizen thinks their rights are, no matter how well thought out the arguement, because the powers that be will have it their way no matter how hard they try to make it appear as if they care what we think.

I attended the “public meeting” about the smoking ban that was held in Arnoldsburg. After reflecting on everything that was said at that meeting, this was what I found glaringly apparent.

The pro-smoking-ban people basically listed all their opinions on why they think that people should not smoke AT ALL. Fine. I agree.

But the trouble is, this is only a preference. Opinions. That is all. They did not address the real issue, but rather, they diligently avoided it. People DO smoke, and no amount of peoples opinions will change that, no matter what position they hold.

For or against, the greater truth to all of this is that the smoking bans are nothing more than blatant discrimination, against smokers and against restaurant and bar owners. Another misguided attempt to “control the masses”. Period.

Opinion is opinion. I don’t like cigarettes, cheap perfume, air pollution from cars and trucks, greasy food, water pollution from factories and mining, loud and ignorant people, mind pollution from propaganda and brainwashing, and on and on and on…. Shall we ban all those things too?

The smoking bans have decidedly crossed the line into legislating morality. THE EXISTING SMOKING RULES WERE FAIR TO EVERYONE. The new ones are NOT. Period. And as time goes on it will only get worse.

How many hundreds or even thousands of years do you suppose that tobacco use has been an acceptable tradition? These bans are nothing more than “designer” laws, which benefits only a few hard nosed individuals who think everyone elses lives should be run just to please them!

Do you really think that the majority of people want their lives controlled that much by these so-called “leaders”? I’m calling them leaders only because in the end, they always get their way. And they won’t stop just with tobacco, I’m willing to bet money on it.

Sure, cigarette smoke stinks, makes your walls and curtains turn brown, makes your kids cough. I agree that people should be concerned about what they do and how it effects others around them. That is called “caring” and “respect”, and there is precious little enough of those things in this world. But, I DO NOT agree that we need to be treated like small children or slaves who cannot think for themselves. This is not conducive to learning respect. We need more laws like we need more ticks! You CANNOT legislate respect. You can’t BEAT it into people with laws and fines.

From reading the most recent news having to do with the encroaching variety of smoking bans encompassing the world, it would appear as if this is the wave of the future.
Smoking Is Healthier Than Fascism
Soon tobacco will be as illegal as marijuana. Perhaps this is some sort of strange justice, but all it accomplishes is the creation of more and more laws, the need for more and more “rats” to report the broken “laws”, thus keeping even more citizens under ever growing surveillance and persecuting us all for the simplest enjoyments that we do in the privacy of our own homes. How much of this can we keep allowing, and WHAT in the world can be done to STOP the madness?

Something you thought you’d never see?

I watched a video today that blew me away! This happened in Colorado LAST SUMMER. The people trying to exercise their right to peacefully assemble on public land. The police had other ideas. The people were UN-ARMED, the police armed to the teeth. But it is incredible what people can do in large numbers. In any other situation the cops would have started shooting, but they had to EAT IT… Truely inspiring.
