3 June 2018. Money Talks and Bullshit Walks Department… EVERYTHING’S For Sale in America

________________________

You see, if a poor person commits a minor crime, they’re only fit for serious time in the slam. On the other hand, if a rich person commits a major crime, they either get off with a minor wrist-slap (as above) or they only do short time in a cushy soft joint (oh, no… we can’t put GOOD people in Dannemora or Attica!). Yes, everything’s for sale and race has little to do with it and money has everything to do with it. You know the old cynical expression… “Money talks and bullshit walks”. I wish that it weren’t so true…

Russian Priest Sentenced to 14 years in Prison on Child Molestation Charges

_______________________

Editor:

Russia is SERIOUS about putting crank priests in the slam. Another priest got hard time for sticking his hand in the till. This is what bozo priests in the USA and Canada deserve (but rarely get).

A TASS correspondent reported that Priozersky City Court in Leningrad Oblast sentenced Priest Gleb Grozovsky to 14 years in a high-security penal colony for molesting children in camps organised by the Russian Orthodox Church in Russia and Greece. Announcing the court’s decision, Judge Lyudmila Yashgina said:

We find Gleb Grozovsky guilty and sentence him to 14 years in prison.

Grozovsky said:

I understand the sentence and I’ll file an appeal. This isn’t the end; you’ll see the situation change.

The prosecutor’s office asked the court to sentence the priest to 15 years in a high-security penal colony and deprive him of the right to engage in activities related to the upbringing of children. Grozovsky plead “not guilty” and rejected all charges as absurd.

According to investigators, in 2011, Grozovsky, who was a priest at the Ascension Cathedral in Tsarskoye Selo near St Petersburg, sexually abused an underage girl. In the summer of 2013, he conducted similar actions towards two girls at an Orthodox youth camp in Greece. After an investigation began, the priest fled abroad and authorities put him on the international wanted list. In 2016, Grozovsky was brought to St Petersburg from Israel. Earlier, sources in the Russian Orthodox Church said that the Church would decide on whether to defrock Grozovsky after the court announced its verdict.

Engaged Couple Imprisoned in Abu Dhabi for Sex Outside Marriage… Trump Loves the UAE and Refuses to Put Them on His Ban List

____________________________________

Editor:

Note well that Trump does NOT put the KSA and its Gulf stooges on the ban list, but they’re the ones ramming Islamic law down people’s throats the hardest. As for me, I don’t care what people do behind their closed doors, so long as they don’t hurt anyone else or involve children in their fancies. If you want to fuck a duck, go ahead… as long as it’s OK with the duck. Reflect well on this… Evangelicals want to criminalise abortion and all other sorts of things that they don’t like. It seems to me that Evangelicals and Islamists are brothers under the skin. Mike Pence is a fanatical Evangelical who tossed a woman in prison for a miscarriage. He’s no different from these Gulf State yahoos. Pray for Trump’s health… for the alternative is Pence… a truly feral and evil man, an American Wahhabist if there ever was such…

Yes… there are “Christians” who resemble the Wahhabis… and they’re “nice” and “sincere” and “moral”. Excuse me, I need to find a corner to be sick in…

A relative said that the authorities arrested a South African man and his Ukrainian fiancée in Abu Dhabi after a doctor discovered that the woman was pregnant. They arrested Emlyn Culverwell, 29, and Irina Nogai, 27 for unlawful sex outside of marriage. The arrests came after Nogai, who was suffering from stomach cramps, went to Medeor Medical Centre in Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi, where a doctor told her she was pregnant. Having sex outside of marriage is illegal in the UAE, and those convicted of it can face long jail sentences. Reportedly, the couple was in detention since 29 January, but details of their arrests are just emerging.

Police arrested Culverwell and Nogai at the hospital for not being able to provide marriage certificates. They took them first to the Yas Police Station, and then later brought them to al-Wathba Prison. However, they didn’t yet charge them because the authorities are still investigating the child’s paternity, how long the couple was sexually active, and are testing Nogai’s HIV status. The couple became engaged just two days before their arrest, on 27 January. Culverwell worked in the UAE for the past five years as a water rescue operative at Yas Waterworld. He started dating Nogai, who worked as an administration officer, in mid-2014.

The South African Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation said that it couldn’t help the couple because it is an issue with domestic UAE law, according to News24, and suggested that they seek legal help. Times Live reported that legal representation for Culverwell and Nogai could cost up to 118‚000 South African rands ($8‚000) per person. Culverwell’s mother, Linda, said that Nogai was still in the early stages of her pregnancy, and suggested that the cramps could be a sign of a miscarriage. She pleaded for their release, saying, “The only thing they did wrong was fall in love”. Linda described her son as a health fanatic who didn’t smoke, take drugs, or drink alcohol. She told News24 that her family is “trying to get messages to the two to say we love them and they shouldn’t be worried”. Linda said that since the couple’s arrest, family members and friends have been unable to contact them. She said that the only people who can visit the couple are family members who share the same last name, and relatives are currently calculating the costs of making a trip to Abu Dhabi with lawyers.

According to Herald Live, since their arrest, a Christian Church in Yas Island in the UAE offered to marry the couple for a lofty price, but a judge refused to allow it. Nogai is guilty of Zina, the Islamic legal term referring to unlawful sexual intercourse, which the UAE has criminalised. The UAE authorities either deport women and couples found guilty of Zina or imprison them in the country for at least a year. They imprison hundreds of women each year for the crime, including pregnant women and rape victims.

11 January 2015. My Reply to a Friend on the Level of Police Violence in the USA

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. NO Police State! 2012

____________________________

The violence has escalated since 2001… the Bushies brought in violence on a new level domestically and internationally. The GOP has become a ravening beast… only a disastrous defeat will knock them out. Even if the USA loses in the Ukraine… that won’t be such a defeat. The media will lie to cover the rich man’s mistakes. However, when (not if) the first REAL riot happens in the USA… all bets will be off.

******

Most of the coppers that I know are decent guys… however, police are being turned into military stormtroopers by the national security state brought in by the ravening Republican beasts. If you had told the returning soldiers in 1946 that the USA would hold people for years without trial, that the USA would be the most-imprisoned nation in the world, that you’d need a passport to go to Canada, that the USA would torture prisoners in secret overseas prisons, and that government goons (TSA operatives) would physically frisk you before boarding an airplane… they’d tell you that you were crazy… “This is America… it isn’t Nazi Germany!” Indeed… it isn’t Nazi Germany. By the way, only one country fought World War II according to Free Market precepts… Nazi Germany! The USA won because the socialist New Deal harnessed the country’s productive might as greedy Crapitalism never could. Ponder that…
