That is sickening. I nearly wrecked when the news broke on the radio! Convicted by TWO juries in TWO trials.... DO we have another money tree for a $10 million trial?
Floyd County doesn't even have enough money to take care of our most needy children and build a new shelter. I'm sick too.
Today’s F.O.S. post contains more plagiarism. See http://capwiz.com/americansforprosperity/issues/alert/?alertid=13343471 Where does Eric teach again?
before everybody gets appoplectic remember 3 things; #1 8 out of 10 local lawyers knew this would happen and why -the court of appeals warned the prosecutor and the judge on the retrial to be careful with the "molesting" issue; the evidence was that she might have been molested but there was no evidence of the identity of the molester; speculation is for blogs not juries; #2 the conspiracy charge was thrown out before it ever got to the jury; we're left with three murders and an affirmed conviction of Boney for 3 counts of murder; one weapon per ballistics ; if Boney is the triggerman,what did Camm do?; conversely, if you believe the bloodspatter evidence, why is Boney in jail? #3 please remember there is a huge difference between "not guilty" and "innocent". another blogger asked how many times do we have to convict this guy. the answer is - one time - fairly
Good bye New City County Building and a new County youth center.
I still believe that since Camm was a police officer they checked the evidence very carefully before they arrested him.Boney was convicted on conspiracy as well as murder. Who did he conspire with? What was his motive? Maybe he needs a new trial also.
The cost will be about $3 million, if Henderson cares to prosecute again... No, the County can't afford this attrocity once more, but the Prosecutor was warned about the "molestation" NOT BEING BROUGHT UP. Some members of the Jury state their minds stuck on that accusation.David Camm deserves a fair trial and only because of serious FACTUAL, POSSIBLY DELIBERATE IN "LOSING BONET'S DNA" and the other things mentioned on Gary Dunn's blog. Whether I think he's guilty or not (and I'm leaning to conspiracy between the two), he still deserves a fair trial, but we can kiss a lot of things good by, unless Ed Clere can get the law passed Cochran was trying to where the State absorbs the costs of these capital murder trials.Then again, if we could JUST GET IT RIGHT, we wouldn't need that tidbit, lol!Don't you think we ALL felt it was coming back? Too blatant.Thanks for the space to rant, lol.
Unfortunate, but a book could be written on the strategies of the two prosecutors. If there is sufficient physical evidence to convict, then do so fairly. Otherwise, end it.
I can almost promise that as soon as the rulking came down Darnell's (Boney) attorney was getting the paperwork ready.
Great news, I just read FOS, and they are not closing Silver Street Elementary or any school in New Albany.
Stunning. Three years later, Erika finally has something to say about Resources for Predetermined Results. Exactly which school board member wrote this FOS post, anyway (here's a clue: Voted against Ron Weigleb, too).
Jealousy is a disease.
FOS=*Keep the Schools open*Fire the Police*Fire the Fire department*Have the maor arrested on federal charges*Dont raise taxes*do more with the money we dont have*hide behind a fake name*demand accountability, yet offer noneDo the math: FOS=BS
11:52 those are your words not FOS or Erik's. Again, FOS proves you all wrong. If you would be less personal, and deal with FACTS. You just might learn something.Great job, Erik.
11:52 those are your words not FOS or Erik's. Again, FOS proves you all wrong. If you would be less personal, and deal with FACTS. You just might learn something.Great job, Erik.Yeah, "Facts." But wait, Erik doesn’t answer most of the hard questions posed here. “Erik” has yet to explain why CFA does not demand accountability from the city council for it’s unconstitutional failure to redistrict. Erik has not yet taken a position on Diane Benedetti McCartin voting for her bother’s projects. Eric’s “Facts” some how don’t apply to honest numbers for two way street conversion or the alleged tapes proving England’s “corruption.” Recently “Erik” has demonstrated an utter failure to understand our court system and what makes a supreme court nominee qualified. “Erik” takes credit for a lot of writing that is not “his.” We’ve yet to hear that “Facts” about where “Erik” teaches or where “Erik” went to school. FOS proves US wrong? SHOW US THE PROOF that any of the claims made by “Erik” are true, the claims about the tapes, the college professorship, the corruption. Great Job, “Erik.” It’s not that you don’t know that facts. It’s that you’re not dealing with reality.
"Erik," This incoherent letter has been on the internet with your "Freedom of Speech" name on it for a good while. You want to go sentence by sentence and explain why you wrote what you wrote? It sounds like a bunch of BS to me. TEAM NEW ALBANY: "YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT IT BAD?" We received this message today from Freedom of Speech Team, our activist friends in New Albany.Our city is a train wreck about to happen. Our new mayor is our old mayor of 12 years ago. He is a crook and a bigger CROOK now. You cannot imagine what all he has done over the last 30 days- an $11,000 raise for himself. We now have 2 deputy mayors a 118 take home cars. In 16 years we have spend around $60 million dollars on sewers and we now have another $47 million to spend. They have been giving like $32 million dollars in 2007 in tax abatements. They have borrowed $5.3 million from sewer utility to cover our general fund and never paid it back. We have been to the city prosecutor, Indiana atty. general and even the governor and been told is too political.You think you have it bad in other counties. Listen to this one:My sister is the assessor for our county. I worked for her for 5 years. During the entire time I worked there she was cutting peoples' property taxes to get re-elected.Her first deputy works doing income taxes for 3 months out of the year. She not only collects a salary FROM doing taxes but a nice check from City. It took me 2 years to figure out what was going on and then I started making copies of time sheets and everything I could get my hands on. I mean boxes of paper work.Well to make a long story short, my sister came to my new home (I purchased Sept. 2003 and moved into November 2003) on Martin Luther King day 2004 and handed me my termination papers. And told me she didn't have to give me an excuse to terminating me. So we got a bunch of citizens and current employees together and created Freedom Of Speech, IN 2005. Of course I am the only person who knows who everyone is. People know I'd not tell if someone put a gun to my head. Our cars have been trashed, gasoline poured on my porch. Spray painted "Bitch " on my garage door. On my birthday there was a box on my porch wrapped in a telephone cord with a bullet tied to it. Of course I deny being with Freedom of Speech.My entire family has turned against me because I promised my dad before he died if she ever fired me to take her down. Well, I have been sitting with all this information, video tapes, time sheets. They also collected comp time and are making a fortune in local government.I couldn't afford to fight her over being fired. I could not afford an attorney. This entire town is a house of cards. It would be so easy to expose this corruption and all if someone would help. I have even considered going to the FBI. You folks think you have it bad you ought to be living here. We have cops following us everywhere.They are playing a shell game with our city money. Our state board of accounts audits is down right criminal for 4 years. Employees have been overpaid, our parks department ran up a $10,000 cell bill in one month. State Board of Acccounts tell us they have no power.We don't have money to fight them. People are scared and won't even attend council meetings. I wish someone had some ideas or answers how we can fight back. We're the little people, working class citizens and have no recourse. We just keep plugging along but what can we do?? I'd be willing to go into protective custody to blow the whistle on these crooked "bastards".....No one will touch this I swear, I have been trying for 4 years....BTW, I guarantee this could turn into a movie deal. This is nothing but pure corruption, ghost employment, criminal crap and all we want is help to put all these crooked bastards in jail.....!!!I have all these documents and no one to help us!!!!!!!! We need more than a Tea Party in our hometown, trust me.Freedom of Speech Team in New Albany
Sounds like someone is just mad and feeling vindictive because she got canned. Some friendly advice: GET OVER IT. STUFF HAPPENS. STOP BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS. MOVE ON. GO ENJOY LIFE. Trust me, you’ll feel better.
Believe she could IF IT WASN'T ALL TRUE... A Witness to the Facts (unwilling one at that)! Hang in there...every dog has his day; the bigger they are the harder they fall, right? Nobody could or can believe it if they were not there or haven't seen it.Canned for doing the RIGHT THING at City Hall -- DAMN, imagine that, but it's the truthers.Maybe Anon's life could get better also if they go and get a reality check; or if they worked down there, LOL!
Actually friends, after the lovely verbal attack on me for exercising my freedon of speech by the anonymous cowards, and the weak attempt to insult or rile me up by trying to insuate that my dad would have been ashamed of me for defending the police department (shows what an idiotic group we are dealing with) I have decided that until such a time that FOS and CFA decides to make public information where they can be held to the same level of accountability that "they" demand of everyone else, the authors of FOS and its "hordes" of anonymous followers and CFA are truly nothing more than a local tabloid. Misrespresentation of facts, leaving out key elements that completely change the totality of circumstances surrounding many issues in this city, and all of it done for political posturing, and as one poster had stated, sour grapes for being fired (when Mrs. Denhart was perpetrating theft on the tax payers by photocopying box loads of documents, and the unathorized removal of government property) FOS and CFA have no credibility, no reliability, no accountability, as such the opinions, "facts", charges made by them are nothing more than fictional entertainment reading only. But I stand behind what I had said before, I am an easy guy to find and contact, if at any point and time FOS or CFA wishes to contact me, and show me that "they" truly are interested in advocating for the "little people" I will become involved with them and bring with me the resources I have to actually make a difference in the life of the "little people".
I am also a witness to the situations that FOS commented on. I was talking to the assessor's sister on the phone on MLK day when she came to her home and terminated her.I have seen the documents in question and know them to be fact. Sometimes a person has to remain anonymous. It doesn't change the facts.
Is Erika's sister still in office?If Erika's had the goods for all these years, why hasn't she unleashed the toxic cloud?Somehow I'm imagining that many years from now, someone buys Erika's lockbox at a yard sale, forces it open, and discovers a bunch of yellowed Kroger receipts for cat food -- not the incriminating documents at all.That's if she hasn't entrusted them to her only friend, Hillary Clinton.
I am also a witness to the situations that FOS commented on. I was talking to the assessor's sister on the phone on MLK day when she came to her home and terminated her.When are you going to learn that getting on here and making an anonymous post stating that you agree with yourself somehow proves anything.
If you’re stupid enough to believe an anonymous post on here stating that:(1) someone saw something incriminating, (2) “tapes” exist showing England and Gonder hatching an evil plot, or(3) “FOS” has hordes of anonymous supporters, then you are stupid enough to believe in:(1) Bigfoot, (2) Alien abductions, and that(3) Erik is a professor. I thought we’ve been over this before.
But Erik really is a professor. Didn't you see his photograph in earlier comments? He's a very distinguished looking gentleman.
"So we got a bunch of citizens and current employees together and created Freedom Of Speech, IN 2005."So is FOS a PAC too? Where's their office?
My sister is the assessor for our county. I worked for her for 5 years. During the entire time I worked there she was cutting peoples' property taxes to get re-elected.Her first deputy works doing income taxes for 3 months out of the year. She not only collects a salary FROM doing taxes but a nice check from City.Wow, I didn’t know the city pays the county employees' salaries. Why hasn’t Price caught wind of this?
From Professor Erik’s Latest Post:We elected the mayor into office and we expect him to listen to us.Well, I elected Mayor England too and I expect him to listen to me. Dear Mayor, Please - Stop flushing redevelopment dollars down the sewer. - Make all streets two way. - Hire more code enforce offices.- Hire more city attorneys to enforce the codes.- Hire more police officers and put few of them on bicycles. - Have the streets and update the sidewalks. - Initiating a community garden system. - Implement incentives for LEED certified construction/rehabs. - Host city sponsored events on New Urbanism, redevelopment strategies, improved parks and social services. - Ignore nay-sayers. Sincerely, Concerned Citizen
From FO(B)S:Cap-and-trade is a tax on coal, oil, and natural gas but instead of being a specific tax rate, the total level of use is capped and companies are forced to pay the government for emissions permits.This is a very imcomplete summary of cap-and-trade, a system that has worked for many years in other fields. Can someone point to an academic article or a research paper that Professor Eric has written on taxation, environmental regulation, economics, or anything else?
10:38, June 30th. Do you know what slander is? You're attacking someone you don't even know. Provide us with facts. If you don't like FOS DON'T read it.If in fact the person you are accusing of photo copying papers, so what. Have you ever removed an ink pen, took a paper clip, or anything else?If you investigate someone, (if you ever was a cop), didn't you have to have evidence to bring charges against someone? You hate this women, because she did what you don't have the guts to do.In fact, I contacted the blog administrator, (Melyssa) and was told these alleged so called comments were never posted on their blog. She had not but positive words and praise for Erik and Freedom Of Speech.This is slander pure and simple.So who do you believe? I support Erik and Freedom of Speech.Like I said, if you don't like what they say, don't read it.
typo: nothing but praise for Erik and Freedom Of Speech.She even has a link.
You support an imaginary person? How sad.
"If in fact the person you are accusing of photo copying papers, so what. Have you ever removed an ink pen, took a paper clip, or anything else?" I would submit that there is a significant difference between taking a pen, a paper clip or an odd widget from your office, and taking what was described as paper box after paper box full of photo copies of government documents. Lets say at the time this occurred, the "little people" of New Albany by way of taxes were paying 12 cents per copy made, and being so trust worthy and honest to report that is was paper box after paper box of copied documents, a standard 20# paper box holds 5000 sheets of paper, that is $600 in stolen property per box taken. At the very least that is theft (IC 35-43-4)Since she was an employee of the government the act of taking such documents falls under §151 Official misconduct of the uniform government code (IC 35-44-1-2), a class d felony, in essence becoming EXACTLY what CFA bitches about non-stop, a government employee who abuses the trust of the citizens whom they work for, unlawfully takes what is not theirs to take, , then creates a scheme to cover the REAL truth behind the wrongs that they did in order to bring down a political adversary. OF course this is merely based on HER published letter, and I am not accusing her of anyhting that she herself did not publicly admit to doing, I am simply comparing what she said she did to what Indiana state law says that act is. plus, since I havent directly named anyone in this post, there is no slander. I leave it up to the readers to decide who it relates to. (also, the anonymous hordes slander everyone who doesnt agree with them, tit for tat. So pick one are you the pot or the kettle?)
keep drinking the kool-aid. Have you came up with a favorite flavor yet New Albanian?
Thanks for asking! I'm just sooo delighted to be asked to your party!!The answer, of course is ... GRAPE!It is just soooo perfect with the bitter almond nose of the cyanide!So, tell me: What's Erika's preference?I think cherry.
Don't tell us Mr. D., you have never copied or used a police department copier. How stupid do you think we all are? You want to quote IC codes, lets see how many IC (codes) Mayor England,Carl and others have violated.Sell it to others, because if anyone buys Mr.D's BS -- shame on you.
You want to quote IC codes, lets see how many IC (codes) Mayor England,Carl and others have violated.YES, LET'S SEE. PROOF! PUT UP OR SHUT UP!
This is slander pure and simple.Again, it has to be untrue to be slander. Show us who you are and prove to us that it's untrue. Why are you so unwilling? If everything you have said is true, you have nothing to fear.
If you don't like FOS DON'T read it.What? Does the Freedom to Speak not apply to me too? Why is FOS trying to supress my first amendment rights? (tongue in cheek)It's not that I don't like FOS. It's that I don't believe it. Not a word. It sounds like the ramblings of a pathetic, angry and ignorant liar.
"Don't tell us Mr. D., you have never copied or used a police department copier. How stupid do you think we all are? " Actaully, I never did make any copies of anything in the police department. What copies I did make for the Auxiliary Police, to disperse to the other reserve officers at monthly meetings was done at my own home, on my own all in one printer, on my own paper, and I never even claimed a tax deduction for the donation. I paid for my uniform out of my pocket, paid for my gun, ammo, in fact at the time I was on there, we had to pay for everything out of our pockets, with the exception of the citation booklet we were issued, training and fuel. Some of us even paid for our own patrol cars, lights, sirens, decals etc. Wanna try again? This retort does not come close to answering what I posted, now does it? IF the person mentioned did in fact do what they said in their own words they did, that constituted official misconduct, and theft of government property, both of which may be viewed as felonies. IF the person in question did not do these things, and made up the story, then the person in question is even less trust worthy than a thief, because every single rant and rave, every blame and accusation is based on a lie, and makes years of plagairism, slander, misreprensentation of facts, distortion of circumstance nothing more than a personal political agenda and tantamount to nothing more than the inability to let go of a gudge because they were fired, in which case will do nothing more than showcase a definate case of immaturity and instability. For once, answer a question directly, which is it: Official Misconduct under the States uniform government code, or undocumented, unprovable rantings of a disgruntled former employee of the City who just can not let the fact go that the person was fired by a family member. (ps, before you want to try and pin on me that I may in fact take stuff from the clinics, every item we used is documented against the inventory and audited annually by an independant firm who turns the audit information over to the Indiana State Department of Health and HRSA)
oh yeah, I forgot. THe city did pay for the badge, as well as a photo ID that was made by Det. Griffey. Both of which were turned back in when I left the Auxiliary 8 YEARS AGO to dedicate myself to my family and the clinics. (which makes me wonder, why is it you seem to be obsessed with the time I spent volunteering as a reserve police officer? Did I give you a ticket or something, because if I did, you were amung the only 12 or so people that I ticketed)
Just like Prof. Eric. You ask her a tough question, and instead of giving an answer, she points the finger and makes an accusation against the questioner. Recriminations don’t help your case, “Eric.”
So who do you believe? I support Erik and Freedom of Speech.So how did you and Erik meet? Was it at Hugh E'Bir's? Good Times? Were you his student at IUS. Oh that's right, there's not Erik teaching poli. sci. at IUS. I'm curious how I meet someone soooo smart.
Cut the crap Baylor, we've only began to fight.Happy 4th, Mrs. Shirley, and all the little people of New Albany.Biy did my councilman Price rock the house down last night.
"Cut the crap Baylor, we've only began to fight."Hey, I've been avoiding this thread.But my curiosity's piqued. Whatcha fightin' for, lover boy?
Christopher D. so you were a rent a cop? Not an officer. That's about right. Deny you ever lifted a pen, paper, or anything else. Good grief, don't you ever shut up?
"Good grief, don't you ever shut up?"I was going to ask anonymous the same question ... okay, which one of you wearing the Mickey D's bags on your head never shuts up?(muffled screeching from behind the masks)
10:23 Are you for real? That was how long ago, that you were an Auxiliary officer. Wonder why you gave up your job? Maybe we should go back an fire all the local cops and replace them with Auxiliary officers again. At least the city would save $1,000,000.
You've got to be kidding. Who believes on this blog, that England has never broke an IC (code)? I can name ar least three or more.
You've got to be kidding. Who believes on this blog, that England has never broke an IC (code)? I can name ar least three or more.I don t think anyone here has said England is perfect. But if it's sooooooo darn obvious, show us the proof. Name the IC section and show us the proof that the law was violated. Since you have not put up, I assume you (finally and thankfully) will shut the hell up.
From FOS today:We here at Freedom of Speech "thank God" that we were born in a country which was founded on freedom to live as we wish [as long as we don't violate anyone else's freedom of course].Yes, and I'm thankful too that I live in a country where the religious nutjobs (at least on paper) cannot control government. Thank you founding fathers. Thank you for the freedom from others' religions.
7/4 2:02, why make it easy on you? I will list them when I am damn good and ready.
"Christopher D. so you were a rent a cop? Not an officer. That's about right. Deny you ever lifted a pen, paper, or anything else. Good grief, don't you ever shut up?" *YAWN*Cant you do better? Still waiting for you to tell me all about me and my family that you know so well
7/4 2:02, why make it easy on you? I will list them when I am damn good and ready.In other words, we should just trust you, even though we don't know who you are?Sounds like someone has no proof.
