Topic: Crime and Punishment

Memo to Robert Young Pelton, opinions worth what they are I still think his little (note the emphasis on that preceding word) uh "greasy backwater" of a web site or uh.."travel bbs"is lacking the exciting camouflage against the backdrop of the lustre web it once had.

 He is either getting lazy, stagnant, or  complacent or possibly all 3.

So -, like reading other peoples mail do you?
Mood:  bright
Topic: Crime and Punishment

I highly doubt the average person stops to consider (for very long)-,.. the unassailable fact about that which they are reading is something they are


-, in conveyance of that , must each and every last email ever sent both now and in the future come with a disclaimer containing instructions for what to do if you are not the intended recipient?

So if you do read others letters online, consider that you are reading material not intended for public broadcast and was not written with any type of forethought in consideration of publication.

These are re-transmitted with my personal, private and professionally known name, surname and given.

Not even in a jocular sense would anyone make marked comparison to a scale of Wikileaks on how this corrupts the social order and infringes and impinges upon a persons mental health, general health and pursuance of order to ones personal/private and public life.

And that it is because that is not the point.  I own/use a blog. I have a freedom as accorded to any privately owned press or enterprise to proffer opinion and request comments.

One can offer an opinion that I have a so-called inherent "right" to publish letters as I see fit if I have them in my possession ie email in box.

But since my argument has already been made it should be made obvious that I am not about to backtrack from it. I have not done so nor do I intend to. This decision is based on the principle I support and espouse and stand by it.

It is wrong to endanger someones reputation, to thereby cause aggrevious feelings by publishing their mail and name.



Dear Editors and Researchers,

Certainly there are many facets to the problems surrounding teen bullying.

The blur and small tidal wave of both recent media coverage and more dated examples hopskotch from cyber-bullying and internet harassment-,.. to criminality and school yard taunts, all the way up to outright murders.

Just like so many raging hormones of the average teen, media is yet adjusting to the digital age, -,..while still chained to its own keyboard in offering a panacea to the problem.

Is this much different from the response of so called big government, despite calls the Official Opposition to enact a more nationalized strategy?

In a sea of pink t-shirts worn once a year, casualties line the shore.

Would it be an overly perverse notion to consider for a second that only if your father is a local Ottawa politician that a call to end bullying can enable a call to action beyond words?

Consider that the father of the openly gay Ottawa teen who killed himself in 2011 after constant bullying by classmates echoed the sentiment brought by the NDP that a new national anti-bullying strategy would have "absolutely" helped his son.

Allan Hubley, the Ottawa city councillor whose son Jamie was 15 when he died of suicide, remarked recently that newly earmarked for funding Red Cross run campaign would have possibly changed how his son’s friends reacted to the bullying.

Contrasted with the fact that the first example of public outcry took place as

far back as the year 2000, when Hamed Nastoh jumped off the Patullo Bridge in Surrey as a result of homophobic bullying.Here talked about on television with the Fanny Kiefer Show, in print journalism
and indepth local reporting that provides enlargement.

I would therefore encourage and urge all mainstream media to consider the contrast between the digital age, and how quickly a decade can pass; with news print media the now less popular form of information purveyance -,..and how the stigmatization of mental ilness amidst all the digitized have's and have-not's only seemingly exacerbates the problem.  

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and my offering of this angle.

As the son and nephew of residential school attendee's i.e. survivors and person whose has also endured a litany of on-line abuse, forms of stalking and harrasement, libelous comments; defamation and slander that has affected my social life, job search, even in finding a home-,...all of these developments must represent a pyrhic victory for those who have already lost so much.

Added to this is the cultural indoctrination that men and boys are stigmatized with this problem to either put up or shut up. By our very nature historically we males are left to shoulder our own burdens.

You are either in league with an NHL hockey coach with the stong arm of a lawyer and deep pockets thereof ; to mount an robust assault of this problem. i.e. Brian Burkes lawsuit against anonymous posters, or one endures as I have; sidelined to the virtual end amidst the so-called hustle and bustle of the WWW intensive and now mobile driven information age.

And yet I still  cant help but wonder about the loss of virtual media driven memory in regards to the very short and tragically ended life of Hamed Nastoh as much less a consolation to his bereaved mother than she could so therefore bear to speak out against.

I share with these people a sense of relief that the adults are finally putting away their toys to indeed: act like adults.

But by now, the shores are far too crowded with detritus of so many lives lived cut all too short.  And like generations previous too all of us, are in built rationalizations are at the ready. Push button ready.

By the way.

MACH1231 Updates-,.. or otherwise known as

HEADLINES you may have missed

such as-,...get this one.

Feds ordered to stop stalking


Unionized federal public servants will have to undergo annual performance reviews


- -


9 years and 200 court appearances later, a B.C. native aboriginal woman has her fish returned

- -


So what? you say! Well hell I'll say so what. And you say : "what have you done for me lately".

"Like"-,... go ahead and finish that sentence for me while you are still so very good at it.

While reading just dont start double-tasking with your little trials, persecutions, threats and pesky arguments to me ..about how rough it is out there.

Because as for Online Suicides and Bullying -,..lets se-e-e-eee here... SOME one needs to stand up to the plate and at the right time

OH WAIT-,..we do have somebody! I am not being sarcastic.

Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose broke down in tears Tuesday at a press conference to announce a new anti-bullying program.

Do you see whats happening? WE have adults acting like adults! WOW! What a concept. People actually sharing a sense of responsibility for the actual real world we have invented.
Hope you dont mind if I hold back on the virtual applause because in the real world, I genuinely appreciate how long this has been a work in progress for victimized people to feel a sense of  (ahem) some sense of vindication.
More? In good old fashioned plain old local newspaper print:

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper is making all the right moves in addressing the issue of cyberbullying in Canada but local people want him to go further.


Last week the prime minister and Vic Toews, minister of Public Safety, met with families whose children were victims of cyberbullying, including Carol Todd, the mother of Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd. The aim of the the meeting was to discuss ways of ending online harassment and exploitation, which has become an epidemic with the rise of social media, with the further goal of addressing gaps in the Canadian Criminal Code related to cyberbullying."



 You are not satisfied with that? Here you go!

Brian Burke can serve claim to online commenters, B.C. court rules

- - 


You see what the trouble is? Is that Brian is up against people who want to pull his chain. And I for one dont like to even see other people go through with this type of trouble.

You see? If it were all just some harmless fun why would there be so much trouble and effort to help these people re-gain their lives?

  Brian is up against people who are gaming him, playing him and taking him for a long ride and laughing at him all the while behind his back -,..literally and figuratively hiding behind anonymous ID's and taking full advantage of the fact unless you have a high priced lawyer at your side (i.e. time to squander) -,....they can operate with wiles with impunity and above the law.

But not since he stood up for him self. So go Brian Go. After this is wrapped up, we all cant wait to push the legal limit to see what passes for free and honest opinion.

I wont say I dont know what he feels.

At one time in America, during / after (?) the last great war, the government had issued a ban and made it illegal for a radio station to take and play song requests from listeners.

The logic and reasoning was that it might easily could have been started to be used for  spies and enemy agents to communicate surrpetiously with handlers and plants etc.

What we may never know-,..or at least what I do not know-, was that before or after the well known German defections?

About the failed war on drugs, I have absolutely no connection to these people not even on 8 degrees of seperation with anyone I know.

But there are other people, even connected to Canadian politicians right here in my province of BC who make no effort to hide the fact they are willing to put their reputations on the line is support of one group or another

When it comes down to a quai-fact that just a handful of so-called "ruling families' in Central America can live in undreamed of wealth and spendor and an embarrasement of riches while their own people mire in poverty

I would say its not my problem.

I would prefer to see the END OF CIVIL WAR, not choose sides to see which group gets to end it through violence, rape and intimidation.

Now see here, because this is all going to be "happening" in a couple of weeks as the Central American countries keep Cuba at bay so as to engage our leaders: Harper and Obama on the so-called: "failed war on drugs".


In a public statement of December 1994 , Defense Minister Fernando Botero Zea reported that the new private security special services were under the supervision of the Superintendent and could not join them people with criminal records.


Just a quick note to consider, is that not smart? Could we just make sure in the future your "neighborhood captains" i.e. Trayvon shooting dont have such records? I mean it because Florida is Governated by the fauna and flora of Bush's distilliation.

 You have a situation where former Presidents fathers were killed by FARC and where banana growers get embroiled in the struggles of revolution and freedom fighting.

Want my opinion? Weve got no other business to promote but the business of peace and I can tell you any one who chooses one side or the other in wars of attrition where familes, women and children become casualties along with the truth are no friends of mine. Period.

Former members of Pepe went on to join AUC.

All of this information is not a secret. It's not like it can be traded. Its available free of charge with anyone with a a computer, net access and browser .

So just get off your fart warmed bar stools Flaggers and get with it. Youre in the open now, talking about nothing, doing nothing and stirring nothing, pathetically acting as if all of this is beneath your feet.

The world can see you.  Just stop acting like you dont care. And stop acting as if its taboo, sacrosanct or a big secret. Because. It's embarrasing to you and the world and your site.

 It's a failure that you are only happy to concede is a failure of your own making and doing. I think everyone would agree it has been a failure. The only question remains is will the parties reach a consenus on whether to stop and puruse a new course of action or will they part company and go their seperate ways?

Something tells me that trade hangs in the balance, and if certain parties within Canada have their way, all their planned profits are going to be hit to zilch by government powers.

Canada has real power. Real power that it does not even bother to use.  And maybe this could be what the Central American countries are roused about and tired of. Tired of the relationship going nowhere like a strained marriage. They are paying way more in cost of human misery than say-,.....the average native indian reserve.

How does a man who calls 9-1-1 and issues faulty intelligence that results in a man getting shot at the hands of police get charged with mansalughter while another man in a diferent part of the country  who actually points a gun and shoots while ignoring orders from police gets charged with nothing?

It's easy though, right? That's the way it is. That's the way it works.  That's the U.S. for you. No one said anything was fair. It's like corruption in Syriana. That's how the system survives. can make out just enough from the official police footage how extensive Zimmermans injuries if he has a water tight case, why would he feel a need to exaggerate his case or even lie?

With the size of the man known as Zimmerman, faced with a gangly teenager at best, how much fear should a normal man have from such an individual? If you were built like Zimmerman, would you pee your pants and defecate at the sight of a black teen coming at you or trying to fight you; even if true as told?

Interesting side bar story (well it ever make it to the big screen?) that never seems to have garnered much attention..

 Story about a man who smuggled millions of smokes for terrorists..

sounds like Sonny Crockett has met his match in some dumbfounded way
