Two Letters From Bill White
[July 17th - This is the last letter I got from Bill, so now he has been incommunicado for another two weeks, and God knows what has happened to him in that time. So far as I am aware, no one in the outside world has been allowed any contact with him for over a month except for those four letters I mentioned receiving all in one stack last week. I have redacted some of this text because Bill names specific names, and in light of the legal precedent set by his own trial, where a Jewish judge ruled that all you folks reading this blog are "an inherently criminal and violent audience," the mere naming of a name constitutes a threat of some kind. - HAC]

I have now been banned from reading newspapers, so no more American Free Press or First Freedom and no more news commentaries for AFP, although I thank you for your attempts to send them to me. Yes, the law does prohibit the jail from denying me newspapers, but who will enforce the law? That's the big question, isn't it? Not what is the law, but who has the courage to enforce it?
My conditions here are poor and my health continues to decline. The bright lights are affecting my eyesight now and making it difficult to write. After I started eating again my lawyer's staff promised to visit me regularly to monitor my condition, but they have not followed through, so no news. My trial is still scheduled for September 2nd, so far as I know, unless they've put it off again without informing me. I have no idea what kind of shape I will be in when trial date finally comes.
An amusing character sketch for you. Across the hall from me is a [negro] I call Flibberty Jibbet. Every moment it is awake, it babbles nonsense at about a hundred miles a minute--"flibberty jibbety hippity hib hib dibble dabble babble babble babble." This goes on for about 18 hours per day at all times of the day and night. When it slows down enough that its words are intelligible, it is generally saying "bitchassho bitchasscrackuh" and conducting fantasies wherein it is beating women, selling drugs, extorting people, or otherwise being vile. Despite the utter worthlessness of its life democracy preserves it, lacking the courage to either medicate it and treat it, or else put it down.
I have seen negroes like this before, but never this severe. The negro is oriented toward place and time. When spoken to, it responds intelligibly about 50% of the time. It is suffering from an extreme form of bipolar disorder, is constantly manic, and could be restored to the normal vile state of a low-IQ street negro, with medication. But there is the question of, if medicated, could society make any use of it? Democracy certainly wouldn't demand that this negro work. Perhaps it could serve a purpose by voting for Obama. Or it could be given a uniform and employed at the John Polk Correctional Center.
Anyway, Harold, I can only hope that tomorrow will bring some news. It's been 47 days in this torture cell now, the promises I received on ending my hunger strike have been ignored, and I have no idea what they really intend to do to me.
Be well, Harold.
[July 18th - Got this one today. Apparently he is now allowed to receive a handful of the several hundred items of mail he receives every month so long as they are hand-written and innocuous in content by their definition.]

Lots has been happening, some good, some bad. I learned today that either someone here at the jail or someone in the FBI stole the civil rights complaint form that I tried to mail to the court. One of the ironies of bringing such a complaint is that I have to give it to the jail--the defendants--to mail. The jail is opening and intercepting all of my legal mail and passing it on to the FBI, in violation of lawyer-client confidentiality, but so what if no one is going to do anything or enforce the law? One of them took it upon themselves to destroy my petition for redress to the court. LOL.
My attorney says the judge in this case is some kind of tough nut and will not tolerate this kind of behavior from the dictator's servants. He had me execute a notice today in front of him, and he hand-carried the papers out of the jail and will be filing it with the court. [Would anyone care to wager that once he does this, this lawyer is henceforth denied access to his client or else searched when he leaves the jail? - HAC]
From now on I am going to have to execute all of my legal papers in the presence of my attorney or a staff member and have them hand-carried out of the jail so they are not stolen. I suspect the next step will be to restrict or deny my attorney visits. The jail doesn't like such visits anyway because they have to take me out of my torture cell into a room with normal lighting and sans open sewer, and they are afraid my attorney might let me take a nap there.
I have received one letter from you dated July 6th, plus the one package of books they allowed through.Since my arrival I have sent you letters on May 18, May 20, May 26, June 5, June 6, June 10, June 12, June 14, June 15, June 24, June 29, June 30, July 3, July 8, and today. [I have received slightly fewer than half of these. The July 6th letter I wrote to Bill was a brief handwritten note of two lines stating that I was receiving no mail from him. - HAC] I am bringing additional legal action and asking the United States Postal Inspectors to investigate. What you should do is maintain a log of all mail sent and its disposition. I will acknowledge in writing any mail received. You may want to consider tracking (certifying) all mail.
Basically, this jail is a jungle. Every deputy makes his own rules, with apparently no supervision at all. The supervisors spend most of their time covering up for the law-breaking on the part of the staff. For whatever reason, they seem to think they can derail my legal proceedings with this behavior, probably because they have so frequently done so to others. I understand from others here that the same thing was done to George Zimmerman to try and coerce him into a guilty plea, but he didn't break.
My plan has been to petition the court to appoint counsel for me but if there are any White attorneys out there who would be willing to sue the Seminole County jail for me, my current court-appointed counsel advises me that I have a case, and I would like to speak to anyone who can help. My main problem now is simply communicating with the courts.
Otherwise, I am simply sitting here under the incandescent lights and losing weight. [700 calories a day, or the "American Buchenwald Diet", will sure shed those pounds! - HAC]
I found out this week that the jail petitioned the United States Marshals' Service not to move me. Why doesn't make much sense. [In my view this is proof positive of the complicity of the United States Attorney in Orlando in the torture of a federal prisoner in order to coerce a guilty plea to a crime he did not commit--but like Bill says, so what? The law is irrelevant if no one is going to enforce it and the dictator's servants enjoy complete lack of accountability for anything they do. - HAC]
My case is still on track for acquittal. Thank you for your help and all that you do. Tell people out there that all their support is appreciated even if I can't receive their letters, and they should keep on writing and keep on complaining directly to the Seminole County Sheriff about my mistreatment here.
I hope that you are well.
You may recall that the United States Attorney in Orlando is constructing the narrative of the Facebook case on a Fox News television show called The Following, wherein Bill White is a mysterious and evil cult guru who has a huge secret army of "followers" hiding out in the world ready to swoop down at any moment and do his wicked and violent bidding. This was the excuse used to anonymize the jury in the Roanoke trial and frighten them out of their wits before the trial even began.
You must all understand that if you dare to stand up and protest against Bill White's torture and abuse by the dictator's servants, you will go on an FBI list as a "follower" of this ebil and howwible Svengali-like guru. Your phone will be tapped, your already routinely NSA-intercepted e-mail will be audited, and you may get visitors at your door doing Jack Bauer impressions.
Yet I ask you to do just that. I ask you help this man Bill White even though it is personally dangerous to you, because it is right, and doing what is right is more important than your personal welfare. Or at least it should be, if you are any fraction of the men and women your great-grandparents were. I am asking you to accept something that was never questioned in their time: that evil must be resisted in the earth by men.
Please continue to complain and annoy the authorities at the Seminole County Jail and in the sheriff's department until they stop torturing a helpless middle-aged man, no matter what that suit in the federal building tells them to do.
