BEAST Editor’s Trial Begins Wednesday, May 16th

The first thing I’m going to do in jail is break a dude’s face. Just wreck it. Savage dentistry. Picasso nose.¬†Blood fountain. According to MSNBC’s horrific weekend programming, that’s what I need to do to gain respect. And it probably won’t hurt to constantly mumble to myself about wanting to “get my knife wet.” But prison won’t be all bad. Right? Many fine books have been written in the clink. Maybe I’ll finally quit smoking and get in shape. Or maybe I’ll get shived from behind and bleed out on the shower floor. (more…)

Murphy's Law 5

The “I Can’t Believe This is Going to Trial” Edition

UPDATE, January 17th 11am: The City Hall security camera footage finally provided by the DA’s office conveniently will not play. While my lawyer and the DA talk to the company that owns the¬†proprietary video software to figure it out, my trial has been postponed until May — with a hearing about the camera footage set for Feb 2. Seeing how the Buffalo Police Department erased my exonerating camera footage, I’d be incredibly surprised if the cameras under their control weren’t mysterious “broken” on the day in question. But we’ll see.

For those of you who’re unfamiliar with the ridiculous legal case against me, you can read Murphy’s Law parts 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, and 4. Or if you hate lengthy first-person accounts, you can read this succinct report at Raw Story. But, basically, I got arrested for filming a cop while covering a National Organization for Marriage “We Hate teh Gay” rally in Buffalo, New York. And, no, filming cops is not illegal in New York, so they fabricated a bunch of charges to justify my arrest. And then they erased my camera to cover their asses.

Anyway, before I go to court on January 17th, a little update seemed in order… (more…)

Pigs drop beats @ #OccupyBerkeley

You know what’s terrifying? Asian women! Did you know that sometimes they can grow up to 5 feet tall, and weigh nearly 100 lbs? And sometimes they’ll just stand there. When they do that, you know they’re plotting your murder. Now that you have those facts, rewatch the above clip, and tell me you wouldn’t have done the same thing. TELL ME! OR I’LL SMASH YOU IN THE FUCKING STOMACH, YOU GODDAMN LIBERAL PUKE!

Sorry. I joke to hide the pain. Call me old fashioned, but it hurts watching defenseless people take a pretty serious beating. It hurts watching it happen in my country. There was absolutely no¬†provocation¬†there. Cops, in this case and many others we’ve seen during the Occupations, are just motherfuckers. Pure, deep-down motherfuckers.

I gotta give it to those kids. For real. It takes a lot of will power not to attack someone who is beating you with a club. The crowd could have easily swarmed those pigs, pinned them down, and gnawed at their goddamn throats until they all bled out onto the lawn like the worthless fucking shits they are. I guess it’s a good thing that that didn’t happen. Right?

OWS vs. DHS

Counter terrorism restricts 1st Amendment

It’s been nearly a decade since the Department of Homeland Security was foisted upon our frightened nation, and all we got was this lousy police state. Petulant, Americans tend to scoff at the notion, and mock those who suggest the reality. “We’re not as bad as N. Korea!” goes the typical internet rebuttal. Fair enough; we’re not as bad as N. Korea.

The true story of how I shot a cop and went to jail (and something about a dildo)

“They got me on some straight-up bullshit, son!” exclaimed the kid sitting next to me in the bullpen at the Erie County Holding Center. “What they get you on?”

“I shot a cop,” I growled, shooting him an icy stare. “And I’d do it again.”

“Son?!” His face froze in delighted dismay. “Real? That nigga dead?!”

“I really doubt it.”

“Jablaow!” he mimicked a gunshot, aiming his hand at the mucus-encrusted, blood-smeared brick wall. “What’d you use–a nine, forty-five…” (more…)
