We are from the government, we are here to help: Sleeze bags and out of control Prosecutors

September 22, 2013

Control freaks by any other name. Read on…

Most of us remember the quote by Ronald Reagan“I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

Imagine this brand of “help” appearing at your doorstep…Please read on.

Your elementary school aged child misses several days of school. First because of the flu, then when you thought things were getting better, pneumonia symptoms set in.

What started out as a “cold” lingered as an illness that is so unpredictable that even when your child was given the green-light  to go back to school, the nurse sends them home for more rest.

You do what any parent will do, make sure your child gets plenty of chicken soup, take that awful tasting cough medicine, and go to the school to pick up any make-up lessons.

Now let’s fast forward. Later in the same year you find out your spouse has to “go under the knife”. As any loving spouse would do, you plan to go through the ordeal with them. And at the same time your “little one” is now distraught as one of their parents is suffering with chronic illness.

By the end of the year your child misses ONLY twenty days of school, while maintaining satisfactory performance as per the official report card.

So far this is a true story happening in the Wheatland WY School District.

You remember the little boy whose family was put on “criminal probation” along with a — NO GUNS ORDER — placed on the household?

Well as anyone would do, this family appealed this order and retained an attorney.

And Wheatland prosecutor Eric Jones (who ran as a Republican) is now retaliating.

By making this a special case. As a matter a fact, it’s so special, that everything will be under a — gag order — claiming that keeping it all behind closed doors is to protect the minor child.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, is that sleazy prosecutors like Eric Jones love to keep their dirty deeds deeply under cover. His actions are proof he doesn’t give one iota about the children.

To Eric Jones it’s all about power!

Eric Jones is guilty of doing what many prosecutors in America do best –WIN CASES…and if it means making a Wyoming family go bankrupt, it’s just part of the “game” he plays as a prosecutor.

As of now the avenues of diplomacy have been exhausted. You see, every single member of the School Board and the County Commissioners (even Sandy Contour who ran as a “pro-freedom” candidate”) tell me, “there is nothing they can do.

And it’s all a bald faced lie! Under WY-Statute the “elected officials” can force Eric Jones to step down.

Of course, as usual the job of holding “other politicians accountable”, in this case the prosecuting attorney, is something that no one wants do.

By now you probably know how things really work…When a politician is asking for your vote, even for school board, they are certain to speak in a manner to win the popularity contest.

Then once this same politician is safely in office, by their “actions”, they become part of the slimy “business as usual” club. (Commissioner Sandy Contour, in case you are reading this email, YOU should be paying close attention since many people are watching)

Here is the call to immediate action!!!

The good news is, if Governor Mead hears from enough people like you he could put a stop to this merciless harassment of a Wyoming family.

Even though we know Mead has been on the wrong side on gun issues, surely Mead will stand up in defense against this egregious abuse of power that has been directed against this innocent family.

I pray that Mead would realize that bankrupting this family will only leave long term scars.

This matter is urgent, it cannot wait, it’s not something that can be put-off.

Please contact Governor Mead and ask him to stop this attack that started as a criminal no guns order, and has now turned into a retaliatory act by a out of control prosecutor Eric Jones.

The following is an example:

Dear Governor Matt Mead,
I am contacting you on behalf of the Cain family in the Wheatland School district.
Life brings its own hurdles, things like Illness and even surgery can certainly send a family for a loop. But adding salt to the wounds by punishing a family for circumstances out of their control isn’t what the “spirit” of the law is for.
Platte County Prosecutor Eric Jones is retaliating against a Wyoming Family that complied with all prior recommendation by the local school officials, all during  time of documented hardship.
Eric Jones is falsely using low PAWS testing scores, since the entire school numbers have taken a nose dive. Also be aware that the school principal that filed the initial action against this family, was later forced to resign for her own poor performance.
On a side note, similarly when a law enforcement officer is found to be a bad apple, it brings the citations written by that officer under strict scrutiny, sometimes even overturning prior guilty rulings. so should this case be treated.
I pray that you help this family by taking this issue out of the hands of Eric Jones and the heavy handed judge, so this family can go back normal. Twenty days of school absence for a little boy dealing with illness, and on top of that, his father undergoing surgery isn’t who I want my government prosecuting. Let’s save all that for real criminals.
Please help Brandon Cain’s family from being wrongful prosecuted by ruthless prosecutor Eric Jones.

P.S. Prosecutor Eric Jones is going to show a Wheatland family just who the boss is unless you get involved.

Since this family decided that a probation order treating them like felons — including a NO GUNS ORDER — went too far. Since they decided to fight, Eric Jones is now on a mission to get even.

Please call Governor Mead’s office ASAP!

Stand your Ground Laws; George Zimmerman and Travon Martin

July 21, 2013

As I look across this nation at all the protests related to the verdict rendered in the Travon Martin shooting I had to think about all those people from the past that had been imprisoned for properly and effectively defending themselves, a family member, or even an unknown stranger from a ruthless crime.

I watched once as a prosecutor, in Arvada, Colorado, drummed into the jury how a friend “had the duty to run,” when his son was being unmercilessly beaten by three others. To allow his son to be killed in other words. Four years later after he was released from the Department of Corrections I, and many others told him that he had done the right thing. The law be damned!

This was quite a few years ago, and just goes to show that political correctness has been around for longer than I have been living. That said…

George Zimmerman could have easily defused this entire situation simply by holding back and waiting for the police to show up. He could have watched from his vehicle from a distance and monitored Travon’s whereabouts and communicated that to the police.

Nevertheless he did have the right to defend himself when Travon started beating his head into the sidewalk. With deadly force I might add. The Jury agreed with that, and the prosecution, the entire team should be brought up on charges of malicious prosecution. It was in fact that bad.

This tragedy was turned into something else by the race baiters, hucksters, and the main stream media, and continues to do so. What has not happened, at least has not been reported to the best of my knowledge so far? The rioting and such. The race war by The New Black Panthers that would accomplish what so many race hatred groups and individuals have tried to get going in the past, like Charles Manson for one example.

I am very much in favor of Stand Your Ground Laws, Castle Doctrine, and Self Defense laws. I support their expansion, and would be in favor of full rights restoration after a person has proved that they are rehabilitated if convicted of a crime. After all, didn’t we lock them up long enough to pay for their transgressions? If not that is our fault. I am also in favor of laws that would imprison those that seek to abuse our laws by twisting them to push their agenda. Such as media types that knowingly alter evidence. Prosecutors that know, or should have known that they were abusing the law, and any other grand-standers that abuse our system of justice.

Taking on Zero Tolerance in Schools supporting Jared Marcum against overzealous prosecutor

June 18, 2013

Gun Owners Foundation has come to the defense of a West Virginia teenager who is actually being prosecuted (a.k.a., persecuted) for his pro-gun views.

Jared Marcum wore a T-shirt to his Logan County middle school in West Virginia on April 18 — a decision that has since sparked a national controversy.

No, Jared’s T-shirt did not depict a Muslim beheading a victim while shouting Alahu Akhbar!  Such depictions of violence would violate the school’s dress code.

Jared’s T-shirt depicted a hunting rifle with the message: “Protect Your Right.”  And now, he faces up to a year in jail for doing so!

The outrageousness of this case has prompted the involvement of Gun Owners Foundation, which has agreed to help Jared pro bono.

People can help Gun Owners Foundation assist Jared Marcum by going to our foundation’s site and giving a contribution.

It all began on April 18.  Everything was fine for the morning classes, but then the day went goofy when an anti-gun teacher confronted Jared in the lunch line and told him to turn his shirt inside out.

Jared pointed out that his shirt did not violate school policy.

The teacher sent Jared to the office where the same back and forth was repeated with the administration.  Then a police officer was summoned who ordered Jared to turn his shirt inside out.  Jared told the officer and the administration that he was doing nothing wrong.

According to the officer, Jared’s shirt constituted a terrorist threat.  He did not put that in his written report, but instead charged Jared with obstructing an officer (apparently Jared interrupted the officer while he was talking to the administration).

Jared was cuffed, charged and told that he could be fined up to $500 and spend up to a year in jail.  The prosecutor decided to press the charge, and a judge allowed the prosecution to proceed.

In a town of less than 2,000, what are the odds that at least five adults are this insane?  And all on the same day?

Zero Tolerance can be better understood as Zero Judgment.

Jared was suspended for a day.  When he returned to school, around 100 students wore similar shirts, and Jared wore the same shirt that fried the brains of five grownups two days earlier.  Nothing happened.  None of the students heard a word about their T-shirts.

Jared and his stepfather, Allen Ladieri, are to be commended for not backing down, and Gun Owners Foundation is actively supporting the case.

Usually, Gun Owners Foundation supports individuals appealing convictions on firearms charges that involve constitutional issues.  But we think that Jared’s case warrants special attention, as it involves both First and Second Amendment freedoms.

If we are not allowed to make pro-Second Amendment statements — all because somebody is offended — then we can count the days to when we’ll lose the freedoms enshrined in both Amendments.

If Jared prevails in this case, we may have finally reached a turning point regarding Zero Tolerance, which is one of the most insidious policies being inflicted on the nation’s young people.

ACTION:  While GOF is helping defend Jared Marcum pro bono, there are obviously significant costs involved.  So please help by making a tax-deductible contribution to Gun Owners Foundation.  You can assist in the Jared Marcum defense by giving a contribution to GOF here.
