I have that just been informed that after days of being on a hunger strike, Bill is now in the ISO Medical Unit. As I haven’t from him I expect his condition to be serious. This is a result of the inhumane treatment received by the John Polk Correction Centre/Seminole County Jail aka the torture chamber /executioners block. To say that I’m irate would be an extreme understatement.
For weeks I have been hearing horror stories about the place, with Bill saying it was the worst jail he’s ever seen – having seen many one can only conclude it’s on par with the third world – possibly worse since Bill decided that starving to death was preferable to living in such conditions.
Bill said that he was kept in a tiny room with 24 hour artificial lighting, no access to hot water, only permitted to shower once every two weeks, and that he had 24 hour video surveillance on him. The cell also apparently had an open sewer running through it. This cell was apparently only usually given to serial killers and people who had committed serious crimes. And as we all know, Bill had great difficulty receiving mail there.
Making comments on the internet are apparently now on the same level of justice usually reserved for serial killers. The fact is that once again everyone thinks that White Activists are criminals and deadly murderous thugs. And I do not mean just Bill White; I mean all of you. Should any one of you get arrested, expect a similar treatment because according to the wisdom of Joe Bloggs, you are on a lower plane than serial killers and rapists – these people will all be treated better than you. Not because of the accord attributed to the severity of the crime, but because politics is more important than justice.
I’m aware of the fact that this site gets observed 24/7, and that once again someone will be swooping down like a predatory raptor to find some choice words and quote them out of context. You can officially quote me in your malodorous little file as being morally, ethically and genuinely disgusted with the entire process of ‘Facistophobia’ which appears to be akin to the Witch Hunts of the Middle Ages. It would in fact, not surprise me if the next trial involved just drowning Bill in a lake – if he floats, that will undoubtedly prove that he is a political heretic.
If people spent more time investigating the murderers instead of unpopular internet users and ‘Fascists’, America would be a happier and safer place for everyone. But they don’t – they sit here and read this site rather than preventing serious crimes. After all, given recent statistics – there are more murders in the USA being committed by teenagers on shooting binges than the Nazi’s. By this logic everyone under twenty should be under investigation too.
The NSA is a spectacular failure – all it catches are people making bad jokes on the internet – no real criminals would be stupid enough to write anything there. So who gets caught? Not the criminals, but silly people with a morbid sense of humour and drunks. Brilliant. But at least having the highest incarceration rate in the world and corporatised prisons keeps the US economy from collapsing eh? Once again – Capitalism is the basis of everything. Arresting internet users is a good business isn’t it? A naive belief in ‘Freedom of Speech’ makes good money these days and keeps Wall Street afloat.
That however, is irrelevant – the penal system thinks it’s more important to torture ‘Fascists’ for political heresy that it is to deal with murderers. ‘Fascists’ are the lowest of the low; serial killers have more rights. Why? Because the crime of…insulting someone and hurting their feelings is more offensive than murder? Is this the woeful logic involved? No – the cold hard truth of the matter is that it is perceived as threat to the political order, a rival for power and that is all. To the State it is a political rival and one by one you will all be weeded out and exterminated ruthlessly until there is nothing left but a trail of ghosts on the internet.
I am not a Fascist; but I would torture no man for an idea, and outrightly condemn anyone who would do so. And there is nothing that can be said to convince me otherwise.
Who is guilty of driving Bill White into such a state where he decided death was preferable? Only the Fates and Dharma know. But that I still believe in.
Boundless Fates, dear children of dark Night, Hear my prayer, O many-named dwellers on the lake of heaven, Where the frozen water by night’s warmth is broken inside a sleek cave’s shady hollow; From there you fly to the boundless earth, home of mortals, And, thence, cloaked in purple you march towards men whose aims are as noble, As their hopes are vain, in the vale of doom, where glory drives her chariot on, All over the earth, beyond the goal of justice, of anxious hope, of primeval law, And of the immeasurable principle of order. In life Fate alone watches. – Orpheus
