Activist gets 6 months for civil disobedience at SOA

    Washington, DC
    Catholic Worker Michael Walli was one of four human rights
    advocates arrested during the annual November Vigil to close
    the School of the Americas / Western Hemisphere Institute for Security
    Cooperation (SOA/ WHINSEC). Michael Walli was sentenced on Monday,
    June 14, 2010 to six months in federal prison.

    During his November arraignment, Michael told judge Malon Faircloth
    that he would not pay any bail and that he would not voluntarily
    return for the trial. Michael Walli made good on his promise and
    Faircloth issued a warrant for Michael's arrest. Federal marshals
    arrested Michael in March 2010 at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker
    House in Washington, DC.

    Ken Hayes, Father Louis Vitale and Nancy Gwin, the three human rights
    advocates who were arrested together with Michael Walli, were each
    sentenced in January 2010 to six months in prison as well - the
    maximum allowed for the charge of tresspass. The extremely harsh
    sentences are intended to deter others from following the example of
    the 'SOAW 4.'

    "Those who speak out for justice are facing prison time while
    SOA-trained torturers and assassins are operating with impunity,"
    SOA Watch founder Father Roy Bourgeois.

    The SOA/WHINSEC is a combat training school for Latin American
    soldiers. Its graduates are consistently involved in human rights
    atrocities and coups, including the El Mozote Massacre in El Salvador
    and last year's military coup in Honduras. In 1996 the Pentagon was
    forced to release training manuals used at the school that advocated
    the use of torture, extortion and execution.

    SOA Watch works to stand in solidarity with people of Latin America,
    to change oppressive US foreign policy, and to close the SOA/WHINSEC.
    In November 2010, thousands will return to the gates of Fort Benning
    to call for justice and accountability

    To send a message of solidarity to the prisoners:

Another one of the secret ways we subvert our own constitution. Something that we believe our country is above and beyond, but really isn'g.

Yeah. Well said, Big Mark. I feel resentful of the holes in my education, since I grew up believing in the country. I'm disillusioned as I discover the real story.

The ( Political ) Responsibility of Jan Brewer before a Court of History - Thoughts about Human Cowardice, Imbecility, Threats, Thugs, Bullies, Scoundrels, Criminals, Mafiosi, Delinquents, Thieves, etc ....

Who is Jan Brewer ?

I have had a lot of problems with criminals and delinquents. Nothing related to Race and Racism.

Corrupt Politicians support Criminals : I have seen that !

My experiences with people that throw death threats against me, and that shoot against me, has given me some insights :

The Criminal has hundreds of false witnesses giving testimony.

On behalf of the Honest and Decent Person nobody wants to go to a court or District Attorney.

Why ???

Because most People are mostly and naturally cowards and fools - They fear losing their lives or something else with the criminals. They act out of fear for the bad guy, they want to live in peace without annoyances, without bothering for JUSTICE.

On the other had, nothing is gained by supporting the Nice, Kind and Decent Person. Nothing is gained and a lot can be lost.

The problem with Jan Brewer is that she is a COWARD, OPPORTUNIST, BIGOTED and FOOL.

She is like the people that act because of FEAR of displeasing the mafiosi, the murderers, the thieves, the bullies.

Like the NAZIS of J. T. Ready, a guy that is clearly a Nazi, with Swastikas in Big Flags, with Totenkopfs, with SS Murderous Symbols, with a Bullhorn ( of J. T. Ready ) that has a figure of Hitler. J. T. parades under humongous flags with a Big Swastika.

"AMERIKA for Whites" - "We defend the White Race" - "We are Pro White" - "Obama is Racist" - "Obamongo is a Racist Criminal" - "They ( the lower races or "coloreds" ) are stealing our country" - Look at the many videos in of the Arizona Nazis, listen to their racist rants and proclamations. ... I have posted some of them, not all, because there are many.

And Russell Pearce is very intimate with J. T. Ready, many photos of embraces, videos of Russell Pearce applauding J. T. Ready, etc ...

J. T. Ready also organizes "Hunting Parties" of his Nazis in the Border Lands in which the "Red Fox" are the Latinos. Minutemen style, the same minutemen that killed Beautiful Child Brisenia Flores, ( age 9 ) and her father Raul in a home invasion in Arizona in May 2009.

Jan Brewer is ( Politically ) responsible for the murders that are occurring everyday and those that come very soon.

She will never be taken to court on a Civil Case or a Penal Case, but the Court of History is unforgiving, this Court has no Leniency and is impervious and impenetrable to dirty tricks and blather.

She and the Coward and Scoundrel Republicans of Arizona may have lots of short gains and immediate satisfactions winning elections, but on the long run, Jan Brewer will be a zero to the left.
