Bill White Update
A quick update on Bill's situation:
A) Bill has now confirmed that his outgoing mail is being opened and interfered with, as well as his incoming mail opened and presumably photocopied and sent to the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office without the little formality of a warrant, although no one bothers with those any more and were anyone to ask, they would just laugh in your face.
He asks that if anyone can detect any visible signs of tampering in his letters to please try to let him know. Not that there is anything that can be done about it--the dictatorship has discovered that they are now operating completely without any accountability whatsoever, and they can do whatever the hell they want, to anyone they want--but it would be nice for Bill to at least have some idea of what's going on.
B) At this point, it appears that the United States Attorney's office has failed in their repeated attempts to get Bill classed as a "career criminal" in order to punish him for not plea-bargaining the irate e-mail beef last October, and making them go through a trial and put things on record they would rather have buried out of sight. (Like the apparent fact that the e-mail in question was actually sent by the prosecution's own star witness, possibly while physically in the company of United States Marshals.)
Apparently someone from the U.S. Attorney's office actually had some kind of meltdown in court, red-faced and screaming at the judge, but they were caught on the letter of their own internal procedures. Or it could be that even this judge is not completely immune from occasional attacks of common sense, and the idea of designating someone as a "career criminal" and sentencing him to 17 years in prison for sending an e-mail gagged even him, especially in view of the near-certainty that the defendant never sent the e-mail in question at all. Everybody in that courtroom knows why Bill White is there, and it has nothing at all to do with any e-mails or internet postings.
C) Bill is supposed to be sentenced sometime before the end of March. I presume that means that very quickly after that he will disappear for a long while, and and eventually pop up in Florida where the United States Attorney's office there is going to try him for allegedly sending another e-mail that somebody with power and money doesn't like, regarding a fabricated FBI case which was later dropped when it fell apart so completely even the federal judiciary with their cowed multi-racial juries didn't dare to bring it to trial.
I say I presume that means he will disappear shortly after sentencing. He may not. They may just leave him in limbo in Roanoke for months while they try to figure out what to do with him and where they can warehouse him with the least embarrassment. The Florida fooferall indicates their game plan is still to imprison him for the rest of his life for the crime of making someone with power and money mad, and yes, in America, that is a crime.
I'll publish the Roanoke address, probably for the last time. Please try to get some last-minute cards and letters wishing him well into the mail in the next few days; from about the beginning of April he could vanish from his cell like Harry Houdini and God knows when or where we'll get a glimpse of him again.
