Thanks for this post. I heard that Guyer filed an appeal, but I did not know the appellate court’s decision. Thanks for informing us.
Regarding the release of the personal and private information of jurors who convicted Chavin’, there is absolutely no logical reason for the court to unseal that information. If any juror wanted to talk to the media, they would have reached out to them already.
You may remember the killing of a Black man, Botham Jean on September 6th, 2018, but in case you’ve forgotten, allow me to refresh your memory.
Mr. Jean, a college graduate and an accountant, was sitting in his living room on the 4th floor of his apartment building watching television and eating ice cream on that fateful evening. Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was off duty and returning home from her shift. Her apartment was one floor below Mr. Jean’s, on the third floor, but she somehow mistakenly went to the 4th floor and allegedly believed Mr. Jean’s apartment was her own. She claims that his door was ajar, she assumed there was a burglar inside, and when she entered and saw him sitting there, she shot him dead. When she called police, the dispatcher asked for her location, and she had to go look at…

On August 12, 2017, DeAndre Harris took part in a counter-protest against the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. He was physically assaulted by six White Supremacists in a parking garage and suffered extensive injuries, including broken ribs. Photojournalist Zach D. Roberts witnessed the assault.
This is the same rally where James Alex Fields Jr. has been accused of driving a car into counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer and injuring others. Fields has been charged by the State of Virginia and with federal charges and is awaiting trial.
Out of the four men arrested for malicious wounding of DeAndre, two have now been convicted and on August 23, 2018, sentenced to prison. A third defendant, Daniel Patrick Borden, has plead guilty and awaits sentencing. Tyler Watkins Davis awaits trial. Read the rest of this entry
Thanks for the history and being candid. I totally agree that this is a dangerous group, and they are playing to other hate-groups that have, since 2008, wanted a civil war in this country to destroy the federal government.

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,
It is seldom now that I get this spun up, but I have had it with violent conspiracy theorists using the cover of patriotism to mount an insurrection. Let’s be honest and call what is happening in Oregon what it is. It is armed insurrection and terrorism being perpetrated by extreme right wing, pseudo-Christian, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis. The list of extreme supporters has exploded on the Internet today, and frankly if you actually bother to read something about them even their own materials, they are a violent and dangerous bunch.
Led by Cliven Bundy’s sons Ammon, and Ryan Bundy, and former Army sergeant Ryan Payne who threatened to kill Federal agents during the standoff at the Bundy Ranch in 2014, these people are a threat, not just to society in general, but to the causes that they purport to…

A premeditated mass murder of civilians is happening in America. Its victims include the mentally ill, the disabled, the homeless, infants, children, and minorities. The majority of its victims are Black males.
While some victims of the American Holocaust are killed by civilians claiming self-defense, the majority are killed by deputized law enforcement. There are some prejudiced citizens who conclude that certain people are up to no good. They call the police who shoot to kill first before asking questions. Using color and claim of official right, there are no consequences for their actions.
The Eastern European Nazi driven Holocaust of the 1940’s was based on a racist ideology that regarded Jews as “parasitic vermin” worthy only of eradication. America too has an ideology that some people are burdens on society or allowing them to live creates burdens on society. For Hitler and other leaders of the Nazi movement, there was no human individuality. They believed that membership in the human race was a racially defined collective group.
