You're far from sane, John! You're a liar a piece of welfare trash and the loser in the lottery of life, No one gives a rat's ass about your opinions--especially SCPD and the DA's office.

DONNY B WROTE FEB 26 2012: "The point is, we would love to see a bunch of "alleged" criminals being tried for "alleged" crimes, "allegedly" convicted, and "allegedly" rot in jail, for crimes they "allegedly" committed.

BECKY: So. Because you disagree with my OPINIONS, you were practically salivating at the thought of Robert Norse and me going to prison. Surely you NOW realize that there never was a case against us, and that DA Bob Lee mis-used his position to go after his political enemies. How do you feel being on Bob's side? Had? Angry? Or concerned?

DONNY B: "BTW, I realize it's almost noon, but I have a couple of folks here with me that want to come over to Graham Hill Road and get a short stack from you."

BECKY: Here DONNY B is taunting me with information he gleaned when I was falsely arrested on Feb 8th 2012 (my home address) to post that he knows where I live.

DONNY B? Are you ready to apologize to me yet?

REALITY CHECK WRITES: " time to go get that job at a private school that doesn't require a teaching credential."
BECKY: Actually, a private school DOES require a teaching credential. However, unlike the public schools, a teacher can teach LONGER than 30 days with an emergency credential in a private school. In public schools, only up to 30 days.
You call yourself "Reality Check?" Maybe you should consider a new moniker.
Thanks for the correction, BJ. I should have know better than to use your previous post as a source of information. My bad.
Good luck with the job thing. Think of the children.

No, BJ. No apology coming.

As to your first point, my comment was not about your opinions. I believed (and still do believe) you are guilty of inciting people at the 75 River Street takeover. Your actions contributed to the damage and destruction of private property. You were ultimately charged, tried, and the charges dismissed. I don't agree with the dismissal, but I'm not the judge and I defer to Judge Burdick to do the right thing. As for DA Bob Lee. He and his staff did their jobs. Could they have performed better, yes they could.

As for your second point, yes I was taunting you. The way you tell it i.e. "...with information he gleaned..." makes it sound like I had to take some effort to get the information about you cooking pancakes at your home. Like always though, YOU posted that information several times in several venues. You're your own worst enemy.

You trolls use her as a source often, but only when it suits your trolling.

If you were a decent person, you would apologize to her, and admit that you were wrong.

I'm not wrong. I have my opinion and I won't apologize for that.

If you were a decent person, you'd stop inciting others with your posts.

If YOU were a decent person, you'd get off of your FAT, lazy, Welfare-leeching butt and get a job. Then the decent people wouldn't be stuck paying for a parasite like YOU!!!

By definition John your mind is far weaker than DBS's because you are obsessed with him and can't leave him alone. You keep making wild claims in an effort to bring him down to your level. If he were interested in you, he'd get a job with Mr Rooter so he would be able to join you in your real element!
