Shining A Light On Government Bullies



” Last winter, Deltona, Fla., imposed a fine on Corey Marion’s Happy Tails pet grooming business. What dastardly deed had Cory committed to incur the wrath of Deltona’s code enforcement officers? She ran afoul of the city’s sign code when she posted a sign to let other Good Samaritans know that her business was a Toys for Tots drop-off site. The city leaders dug in their heels and ordered Corey to take the sign down, but she refused. The city also prevented at least one other small business from posting a similar sign at all.

  This sparked a flurry of media attention condemning the city’s callous attempt to chill speech. You can read IJ’s op-ed on the controversy in USA Today here.”

#OpMaryville: Anonymous Targets Town For Refusing To Prosecute Man Who Confessed To Having Sex With 14-Year-Old And Leaving Her To Die





” On Sunday morning, the Kansas City Star published a horrific account of the rape and subsequent harassment of 14-year-old Daisy Coleman and her family. By early Monday morning, the hacktivist group Anonymous had taken up the cause on the Coleman’s behalf.

Barnett was arrested and charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a minor, and while in custody confessed to having sex with the drunk 14-year-old, but insisted that it was consensual. He also admitted to leaving her “outside sitting in 30-degree weather,” and it was Barnett who informed police that the sex had been recorded on an iPhone. Police later executed a search warrant on the Barnett home, which yielded physical evidence including Coleman’s panties and a bottle of Bacardi Big Apple.

“Within four hours,” Sheriff White told the Star, “we had obtained a search warrant for the house and executed that. We had all of the suspects in custody and had audio/video confessions.”

Early this morning, in response to the Star‘s report, Anonymous posted a letter to the town of Maryville:

We demand an immediate investigation into the handling by local authorities of Daisy’s case. Why was a suspect, who confessed to a crime, released with no charges? How was video and medical evidence not enough to put one of these football players inside a court room? What is the connection of these prosecutors, if any, to Rep. Rex Barnett? Most of all, We are wondering, how do the residents of Maryville sleep at night?

If Maryville won’t defend these young girls, if the police are too cowardly or corrupt to do their jobs, if justice system has abandoned them, then we will have to stand for them. Mayor Jim Fall, your hands are dirty. Maryville, expect us.”










Charges Dropped Against Teen For Wearing NRA T-Shirt





” In a move that can definitely be considered an all-around win, 14-year-old Jared Marcum, who was suspended and arrested in April over an NRA t-shirt that he wore to school, has had all charges against him dropped. The decision followed massive controversy, including a threat of a gag order.

local news station reported that the dismissal order signed by Judge Eric O’Briant stated, “The state of West Virginia is not interested in the possibility of creating a juvenile criminal record for this defendant.” A statement which has brought Jared’s mother, Tanya Lardieri, to tears of joy.”






With Ricin Case Crumbling, FBI Targets New Man





” Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, was arrested last week for allegedly sending the threatening letters to Obama, U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, and a Mississippi county judge. But Curtis has been released from custody amid signs that the case against him has collapsed.

During a court hearing yesterday, lawyers for Curtis contended that he had been framed and pointed investigators toward James Everett Dutschke, a 41-year-old Tupelo man with whom Curtis has feuded. Like Curtis, Dutschke is a martial arts expert, a musician, and a Mensa member.

Dutschke was arrested in January on a child molestation charge in connection with the alleged assault of a seven-year-old girl at the tae kwon do studio he operates. In March, he was named in a three-count felony indictment accusing him of fondling a victim under the age of 16 (each count carries a maximum 15-year prison term). Dutschke, now free on bond, has previously been convicted of indecent exposure.

4/23 UPDATE: A federal judge this afternoon formally dismissed criminal charges against Curtis. Magistrate S. Allan Alexander signed an order for dismissal after prosecutors petitioned to drop their case since “the ongoing investigation has revealed new information.” ”
