Blah Blah Blogging

Couldn’t decide whether to spend this weekend taking a road trip to the DC area for residential photography purposes or seeing what someone in Ruckersville/Barboursville was officially up to. So I’m doing laundry instead.

A reader sent this via email:


If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;


They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Great. Presumably that’s another law that policemen are legally permitted to violate.

A different reader gave me this:

How perfect is that?!

Because of a recent “clerical error” -- yeah, right -- on the part of Albemarle County, and an uninvolved-in-the-situation City of Charlottesville Commonwealth Attorney inappropriately vomiting “there’s a lot of people who’d like to keep her off the road” to the County judge, I’ve been going through my audio files trying to find where JADE Task Force Officer Brian O’Donnell threatened that they, Law Enforcement, would maliciously cause me to lose my license. I’m not going to post that particular comment yet, but I will this one -- which kinda contradicts one of his dirtball CYA tactics that I alter sound bites.

I still haven’t written up a report on what happened when I went to traffic court on July 14th against Virginia State Trooper Long. For one, around that same time my attention was more on ACPD Officer Eric Kudro’s reckless driving courtishness. Secondly, a shockingly positive unexpected encounter with another Trooper has mostly counteracted the abuses of Trp. Long and Sgt. Bailey. Proof that one good experience can make a bigger impact and mean so much more than all the bad ones combined. Almost.
