Bill White, Gang Leader
Okay, for those of you who came in late: they are now giving Bill White some of his mail and letting some of it go out as well. I got a letter from him yesterday dated April 9th, so that was nine days it took to get here, probably the best time ever from the ghastly Seminole County, Florida hole where Bill remains buried alive.
I am told that the writ for his transport to Chicago has been issued, for his habeas corpus hearing which is set for June 25th. My guess is that most likely he will remain in Florida until the last possible minute, so that Seminole County can continue to intercept, withhold, and apparently destroy his mail in order to demoralize Bill by making him feel he is alone and forgotten, a standard tactic of the dictator's servants in the prison-industrial complex.
Bill could vanish into the transit camps at any moment, but as I said, my reading of the tea leaves is that he will be kept in Florida until mid-June. Unless they decide to yank him out earlier and play "Musical Bill" with him again, changing his location every week so no mail can ever catch up with him, like they did when they transported him to Florida this time around. And then when they got him to Florida they just stopped his incoming mail altogether. His outgoing letters to me are still arriving in stacks of 5 or 6 separate documents of different date, all jammed into a single #10 envelope, with extensive paw marks and certain words and sentences blacked out with Sharpie.
Things might be better in Chicago, since he will be in the federal section of the Cook County jail (unless they do like they did in Oklahoma and lock him in a "rented" cell in some county jail in Beaver Wallop, Wisconsin until his hearing date.) The federal sections are technically required by law to comply with certain regulations, like not torturing prisoners and not throwing their mail into the dumpster out back, but all that is necessary to get around that is to give a slave some special designation which allows Obama's thugs to do whatever they want to whoever they want. In Bill's case, he is supposed to be a "gang leader."
When this first came down the pike I mocked it, but I have since learned that technically speaking, it is in fact allowable under the dictatorship's bizarre and moronic criteria. Bill's "gang" consists of myself and Gabe D'Annunzio (hey, dewds, I'm a gang member! Cool!) With Bill himself that's three people, and under federal regs, three people can constitute a "gang."
Gabe and I engage in "gang-related activity," which under the bird-brained criteria need not be money or drug-related or violent or even illegal, just "activity." Our gang-related activity consists of publishing Bill White's letters and articles. (I guess the American Free Press and First Freedom newspapers, which have also published Bill's stuff, would increase the numbers of our gang.)
Not only do Gabe and I publish Bill's written work, we do so "in furtherance of malicious and baseless conspiracy theories regarding the government of the United States and the purported motives of the Justice Department and the United States Attorney's office in prosecuting Mr. White." The fact that the judge in Bill's Virginia case stated flat out before sentencing that Bill was innocent and he was being persecuted for his political beliefs was long ago air-brushed out of the picture.
"When you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way, from your first cigarette to your dyyy-ing day..." (You need to imagine little musical notes surrounding that last sentence. And yeah, I know most of you won't get that reference, or the attached photo. Way before your time. Sigh...)
Anyway, I'm going to go ahead and start running Bill's Florida address again. Please drop him a line or a post card, anything to let him know he's not forgotten. They may or may not let it through--even in a shithole like John Polk the behavior of the guards is spotty and inconsistent, especially since so many of them are black and brown and their minds have difficulty internalizing and retaining complex procedures. Sometimes they seem to let mail through, IMHO, because the hack on duty in the mail room just can't be bothered to fill out all the forms to interdict letters and dispose of them through channels.
Anyway, here is it:
