The heat is on Judicious… will they be able to track her identity down? Her friends can expect shakedowns, some will be roughed up, promises of gold and silver… even promises to be on tv.
I let smart intuitive people write here. Which would exclude you. Pops has the ability to access his mistakes, be honest about them, learn from them and grow. That excludes you. I let fun people write here. You’ve excluded yourself from even that.
Pops has served his country honorably – and what have you done lately? I’m sure you don’t want this blog to tell you. But I’m tempted and considering it for a later day. People want it. Some are demanding it. I’ve left the subject of you alone out of courtesy and mercy. Things change. #ExpectMe
So much anger from so many people. Emotions are raw all over the place. Please don’t pass out – but I understand them all.
Everyone involved in the twitter war are good people at heart and in real life. I know they are. Both sides. Feelings have been hurt. A town feels disgraced. A cause for justice has emerged and it won’t back down.
The days ahead won’t be pleasant around here, I know that, so no one should expect it.
Like it or not… The Steubenville people are mad as hell and they want it known. They want justice too. They plan on getting it.
Prinnie plans on bringing the DOJ to town to investigate civil rights abuses. She won’t back down.
Please, no one throw tomatoes – but when the trial was over I hoped everything would stop. Boy, was I in for a big lesson.
Both sides of this social media dispute (flame war) are madder than hell.
This isn’t going to stop soon, but the heart of the matter is everyone is getting to speak and say their piece. Hopefully what ever happens in Steubenville, it will bring good. Steubenville deserves some good… and Prinnie deserves some good. That’s the real heart of the matter.
For some time, Murt has been insulting me and this blog over a dispute he had with (s)trolling on his blog – on his blog!
(s)trolling has been nothing but respectful on this blog and that’s all that matters here. I could care less about his issues on his blog.
He has finally vowed to (once again) ignore this blog , after another IP block, done simply because it pisses him off. He should have done that after he threw a tantrum because Prinnified.com was on my blog roll and his blog wasn’t. I didn’t even know he had 2 blogs back then. I didn’t even know he was blogging on the one he blogs on. Didn’t know it existed. I rarely looked at his twitter, because the last time I had I clicked on one of his photo links it was a picture of a dead bird laying on a sidewalk. Not my taste in pics. After he threw his fit – I looked it up and added him. Within days to a week he started writing the most disgusting bashes of me and this blog on his blog.
Murt then aligned himself with a group known as the CayleeWarriors, who had issues with me because I spoofed and mocked them. I understood them and understood that as soon as Murt started bashing me – they would be joyous and gleeful, LOL, which they were and encouraged him to hang in there and keep it going and his nonsense spread to anyone I associated with. Levi Page has become the latest target.
Not only is Levi Page a target now, but so is Kim Picazio. Murt might want to tell his friends I was the one who took him to that dance, introduced him to her as he requested, only for him to start a campaign with her to get involved in my blog and stop me from being a blog that is exactly what I say it is. His gripe with Levi Page has the same roots. Up until he saw Prinniefied.com on my blogroll – he had been friendly. Very friendly.
So after saying all that – I’m letting him know he has no influence or authority in this blog whatsoever or with me. No respect either and (s)trolling will not be banned from this blog because of some idiotic dispute he has with her. She has been a good friend to this blog.
So, Murt - bon voyage and fuck off!! And STFU!!
Here is a screen shot of Murt confessing he did say the things in a private chat that he is commonly accused of – things said about harming Caylee Anthony, etc…
This should once and for all put it to rest. The entire chat is linked here for all to read and put it in context. Regardless of what his arguments are about hard drives, the other person and all the other bullshit – he said those things and admitted it here. Murt wonders why he was accused of being a pedophile… what an idiot.
He needs to change the direction of his blog to something productive, stop smearing and bashing anyone and everyone who is friendly with those who caught him with this pm fuckery. It is and has become ridiculous. His blog has become an attention seeking shadow blog of this blog… Murt has no original content to offer, so he shadow blogs and that is the lowest form of blogging.
The last commenter in this screen shot says they saw the pm’s and how disgusting they were and Murt should get off the internet if an internet fight can drive him to mocking other people’s children. It was true in 2009 he needed to get off the internet and it’s even more relevant today. He has become nothing more than an old growling foul mouth nuisance, defaming everyone in his path.
Personally – I don’t give a shit or a rats ass if he did say them – he is well known for saying anything that crosses his mind about anyone and anything he wants…but with his recent big push on twitter and his blog, this last year, to change history aka lie and say he did not say them…he needs to stop his twisting, his lying, his fuckery and STFU! He said what he is accused of, period.
Here is the link to the entire chat: http://i.imgur.com/Z7gX1Ps.jpg

Here is an example of true lunacy! MLee wants to track down Prinnie’s boyfriend and get him in trouble. This is as low as she can go (other than issuing death threats) – to involve herself in something that is none of her business. She doesn’t know Prinnie. She has no history with Prinnie – never blogged with her, never posted with her in any forum, but here she posting on Murt’s blog, which has become the depth of defamation on good names and it’s so deep and thick over there you can’t swim in it, can even walk in it, about how to accomplish the evil she wants to see happen to 2 people she doesn’t even know.
“Now Prinnie has a young new boy friend.. who she claims is in the Marines.. Now, the military is rather picky as to the type of female / male their service people are involved with.. Now, if that boys first Sgt. found out he was dating an older woman who was participating in this crap online.. And having her services for Blow jobs offered at will by Mcnutt, I think the First Sgt would put a big cancellation on Prinnies back side.. So if anyone finds out where the boy is stationed.. we can certainly arrange the sgt obtaining knowledge of who is who in who’s ville..”
MURT and MLee are so far off the reservation it isn’t even describable. It’s beyond that. Lashing out with defamation of good people such as Levi Page, who has done nothing to either one. It’s unreal. Now, MLee is issuing death threats to an unknown tweeter because she thinks she knows who it is. Good God!! These are 2 POS! They have lost their minds!!
Instantly, it popped into several minds that what really was going on was a huge attempt to cover up the filming of a movie out west. Someone has been traveling out there and someone has been taking pictures. The movie plot was about to be uncovered. Old sneaky peeky had been spying on the girls and was soon to break the story, but suddenly and mysteriously became the unfortunate victim of a marine blanket party… and in revenge – got on twitter and called the 2 women prostitutes while in a rage! He said there was absolutely no reason for the marines to be that rough!
Prinnie and Michelle go on a ROAD TRIP to get to the reunion.
Every convenience store along the way robbed and stripped bare of alcohol, cigarettes, beef jerky and tampons. Beer cans and whiskey bottles litter sides of the highway. Gas stations are victims of credit card fraud. Marines, married and unmarried, lay passed out at highway rest stops! Many empty spanish fly bottles are found in and around the trash cans.
When they show up at the reunion and old friends ask them what they have accomplished in their lives – they respond they invented a popular woman’s product used in self defense. They aerosolized a hot sauce used on chicken wings and it’s more effective than mace and bear spray!! The patent protected product has very special instructions on how to use and made the two instant billionaires.
The movie is expected out around Christmas and a source close to it’s production says it will have spicy scenes of the marine blanet party, the highway rest stop carnage and a few of the gas station and convenience store owners will do cameo spots telling how they were paid off with sex acts called blow jobs to forget what Prinnie and Michelle looked like. It’s pretty shocking really!!
A little known gay actor is said to be playing himself in the role of old sneaky peeky. This actor has played many roles as a flasher and is said to have immensely enjoyed filming the juicy marine blanket party scenes, even directing some. He set up everything the way he likes it. No one knew MURT was a part-time Hollywood actor until this information leaked out. Wow! Most of us thought he was a retired truck driver on social security. It is believed he goes by the stage name of Cowboy Fucsia Puff Murtaugh, but we haven’t nailed that down as fact yet.
Robert “Ethan” Saylor was born January 9, 1987 to Ron and Patti Saylor of Frederick, Maryland, beloved big brother of Adam and Emma Saylor. On January 12, 2013, he died by homicidal asphyxiation in a favorite movie theater in Frederick, at the hands of Sheriff Deputies working security for the movie complex. Ethan Saylor had Down Syndrome. Ethan decided he wanted to see the movie again, while his companion/support staff briefly left the theater to get the car to head home after a fun filled day of activities. Ethan lost his life when officers demanded he leave the theater for not paying for the second ticket; when he said no, they handcuffed him, he fought, and they restrained him. He died from asphyxiation according to the State Medical Examiner. This tragic and avoidable death has left his family, the community of Frederick and the nation in shock wondering how this young man could lose his life for the price of a movie ticket. Obviously more education and training is necessary to understand how best to interact with individuals who may think and communicate differently than most. Often individuals with Intellectual Disability and communication difficulties require more time to process requests, understand information, and respond appropriately. In Ethan’s memory, these bracelets are being sold to benefit F.R.I.E.N.D.S., a group originally founded by Ethan’s mother, as a small support group. The group has evolved into an established 5013C, with national affiliations.

Whine is a nice word for what went down on Twitter late today and tonight!!
What started out as whining about other tweeters and their agendas turned into out right ugliness. Language got down and dirty and almost everyone ended up calling each other a whore. My goodness.
The Steubenville defenders have said in no uncertain terms they are sick of the trashing their town has endured. They seem to be out and in numbers to set the record straight. They even have MURT proclaiming JD should be charged with underage drinking, carrying liquor across states lines, her parents turned into the department for child welfare and then arrested. Whew!
A prominent JD defender tweeted she had turned all of that mess over to JD’s attorney – Robert Fitzsimmons. Sounds serious, but after one look at that blog and accompanying twitter – he is bound to conclude the owner is a tin foil, a loon, a basket case and so forth. Sad, but true.
Hundreds of internet users have shared the images which show the girl in broad daylight with a man at the Slane venue in Meath on Saturday.
The girl – who is a secondary school student from the west of Ireland – has been left devastated after the images appeared on social networking sites.
The matter is now the subject of a garda investigation which is being led by officers based at Navan Garda Station.
A senior source revealed that gardai have interviewed the teenage girl and have also spoken with her distraught parents.
At this stage officers have not spoken with others featured in the photographs.
“This case is at a very early stage but what has happened here is a matter of concern for gardai,” a source said.

Gardaí investigating ‘Slane girl’ incident
Gardaí are investigating an incident at the weekend in which a girl was photographed performing a sex act on a boy.
The picture, which is understood to have been taken at the Eminem gig in Slane on Saturday, has caused uproar online.
Gardaí say they have spoken to the girl involved and they are looking into the matter, but will not release any more details for privacy reasons.
What’s up Michelle McKee’s ass is that Carpenter, an independent journalist, has called out KYAnonymous on all the distortions, lies and out right lying to organize a mob upon the people of Steubenville. When one says the people of Steubenville – that also means all the children.
What is McKee afraid of? That is simple. She knows Don Carpenter is on the cutting edge of blowing the Steubenville rape case story wide open. Don Carpenter was there on the ground reporting. Don Carpenter knows. Don Carpenter is an honest man and a work in progress. Carpenter has “reflection” and “recall” and uses them.
Michelle has shown in the past she doesn’t care about buttered bread. She attacked me, out of the blue, a staunch defender of her against loon and internet nutcase Murt and in the Steubenville matter. Well, no more. I support my friends and they support me – but when that is broken – it is broken. I do not play this internet game of break up and make up. When you break up with me – it stays that way.
Now she has stupidly attacked another – Don Carpenter. Absolutely foolish. It was Michelle McKee after all who told KYAnonymous his “facts” on Steubenville. Most of those have been called out as lies.
It’s being said if you want to read the mind of Alexandria Goddard – go read Michelle McKee’s twitter timeline. I disagree with that. It isn’t true.
What’s next? The natural order of things – that’s what’s next. Reporters working in the trenches for little to nothing do not like to be called lairs. In my opinion Michelle McKee has pushed on another wrong button.
This is getting ugly on social media. There is a blog calling for the deportation of Goddard. Twitters are packed with negative tweets against Goddard. McKee is certainly not helping her friend by being a “global ignoramus”. I rarely call anyone a “dumb bitch” – but it fits here.
@NUNYAMAN ON TWITTER
Yes, most likely they will. That has always been my gut feeling about all that transpired over a teen girl being raped in Steubenville, Ohio. Why? Things like this are hard to explain, but it just was and still is.
Time has passed and interest has fallen off to practically nothing. A few have hung on to see what the grand jury will come back with. All of this amidst accusations from Steubenville defenders their Governor is on a political with hunt through the powers of a grand jury. I know nothing about Ohio politics, so will let that one rest.
The online scene changed dramatically with the return of one KYAnonymous. No need to introduce KY – everyone on the planet knows who he is. Everyone on the planet also knows who Alexandria Goddard is. All thanks to international coverage of both individuals and their involvement with the Steubenville rape case. And therein lies the current problem. Everyone knows them. If things unwind – they will unwind on an international stage.
Don Carpenter, an avid supporter of both, has changed opinion and he’s not the only one. A New Yorker reporter, Ariel Levy wasn’t overly kind in her assessment of what the Steubenville rape case amounted to. Carpenter apologizes here for allowing the lies of KYAnonymous to go unchallenged. Ariel Levy writes here the online furor of gang rape and coverup created by Prinnified.com was not true.
Carpenter starts and ends with KYAnonymous. Levy did not. Levy lays the blame for the entire debacle known as the Steubenville rape case on Alexandria Goddard aka Prinnie. She does this, using professional skills, without actually going so far as to put it in print, but you know well what she was saying once you comprehend the context. After reading both journalist’s articles – a place in the stomach feels a bit uneasy. It takes extra time to digest all of it.
Steubenville believes Alexandria Goddard was on a personal vendetta and KYAnonymous was famewhoring. Nothing will ever be admitted to along these lines, but what a combination those two basic human emotions and needs created if that is what took place. It resulted in the shaming of an entire town and if all that was unnecessary – woe!
State Attorney’s stated all of the chaos made this case harder to prosecute. The same came from the local prosecutor, Jane Hanlin. Once the online furor blew up, 3 male teens were granted immunity and that wouldn’t have been necessary had things been left in local and state hands. Hanlin had referred the case over to the state within 2 weeks or so after she felt she had the goods on the guilty parties. She handed it over because she is the mother of a male teen whose friends were involved in in all this. A wise decision, but criticized by Goddard as not being done soon enough.
The local sheriff and local police chief were accused of participating with Hanlin in a cover up. And all of them were further accused of doing nothing about the case. As the trial played out – none of those things proved to be correct or true. Evidence presented clearly showed those accusations to all be false. LocalLeaks – an infamous nonfact checking publication is now gone.
Once the grand jury has wrapped up and reported back, with whatever they decide, national and international journalists will be combing back over the reports they have done on the entire matter. They will be looking to see if they were spot on or spot off in early assessments. Most will ignore the matter if they think they went to fast, but there will be others like Ariel Levy who will dig deeper than headlines and ask the tough questions. There will be those journalists with a bias toward Goddard as being an online monster and they will dig deep into her affairs. It always happens like clock work.
The social media posts of the kids involved is what got the whole thing going. Those posts are indeed hideous. Teenage boys with all the bravado they possess. Teens drinking are not the smartest thing in the world and they proved it by actions that night. No one has any sympathy for any of them, but it is a purer humanity that looks at it in context and then makes judgements.
Whatever the final chapter on the Steubenville rape case is or whoever spins whatever narrative – you can rest assured the Steubenville narrative will always be they were shamed over a woman with a personal vendetta and a young man who was famewhoring. That’s the way it will be remembered in Steubenville and that’s really the only thing that matters at the end of the day for Steubenville. They feel they know the truth about all of this, because they are close to it and know all of the people involved from JD to Goddard. They didn’t know KYAnonymous previously. They do now.
KYAnonymous had stated in interviews he got his information from Goddard and her friend Michelle McKee. He has not blamed them for leading him astray with the story. He hasn’t in public. He will in private FBI discussions. Bet on it.
Steubenville, Ohio is poised for the last laugh. Expect that laugh to be quite loud.
Sounds like a service that would put many smiles on many faces. We may forget from time to time, but our nation and it’s soldiers are still at war in faraway places… and young ones in the military are away from home for the first time in not so faraway places feeling they are faraway. Something like homemade candies seem to make it all better, even if just for a while.
From the website contact page:
“Thank you for visiting Boot Camp Candies! Please don’t hesitate to let us know what you would like and we will be more then happy to get it made and shipped out to you please be sure to include your address for shipping!”
The mother of a Marine makes and ships a variety of fudges, caramels, toffees and cheesecakes. They all look like the kind of homemade treat any military man or woman would love to receive at mail call. Excellent idea on the part of tweeter @Lostnthewind!
Visit the Home page and get started!
I see Murtwitnessone has his tail up in the air recently over Levi Page. Levi must have tweeted something to him!! Egads if so – I bet Levi got called a stalker. Maybe a criminal. Maybe a kidnapper… or murderer and most likely <close your eyes now> a pedophile!!
It’s my understanding Levi tweeted him DHS was on his ass. Nothing new about that. Nothing at all. Why they read everything about him they can find on internet blogs and so forth – I have no idea. It’s not like I can call them up and find out, but it’s nothing new for them to do this.
Now, it’s also my understanding Murt calls everyone on twitter pedophiles because Michelle McKee called him one. LMAO! In his land of enchantment, that gives him the right to call others the same. He does this so often and to so many – in real life and real time what he does is called projecting. “Psychological projection was conceptualized by Sigmund Freud in the 1890s as a defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection
Anyway, the old flabberfart is up to his routine bullshit of hoping to jam up some attention for himself on center stage by using the name of Tim Holmseth and Haleigh Cummings. Unfortunately the only attention he will get is here – from me – off stage, in the alley, wherever! LOL!
As usual Murt is trying to get the thought across anyone who tweets to him in any negative way whatsoever should be investigated to the max for something. In this case most likely the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings. He has done this to almost everyone who followed the case. Boring? Yes, quite. I may have some differences with Timothy Holmseth – but even I credit him with enough self respect to want nothing to do with William “Murt” Murtaugh!
And as usual, Murt is claiming to have a “source” here and a source there. Always unnamed. His biggest and hottest source – you know, the rich and powerful one? She’s always unnamed. Levi and I are always named as common jerks and would be criminals of course, down on our luck, living in basements or worse. Ho hum!
If Murt were nearly as connected as he wishes everyone to believe, he would know how and in what ways those he attempts to bash and disparage are connected to the Haleigh Case families and yes, even to law enforcement. Since he is oblivious to the relationships and connections, making a constant fool of himself with his garbage – lmao… you can easily connect the dots to old flabberfart the idiot. Ha Ha! I would have got this post done sooner, but one of the proud Haleigh Case families sent a forum member pictures of all the grandchildren to be posted. So, I was ask to do that and the pictures are wonderful.
I, for one, am more than happy to let this idiotic despicable old man remain on the outside of the story where he can do no harm. His blog is read by no more than 4 people and if you include Levi and me for today – that makes a grand total of 6!! Now, you all can wait for Murt to hear about this post and rush to his blog and rip off anywhere from 4 to 6 blogs all defending himself from this raw, callous and brutal attack!! ROFL!!! Guess what? I will be called a flabberfart or worse. God only knows what Levi and his not so unnamed unnamed source will be called!

Websleuths vs. Tricia Griffith
Websleuths.com, LLC and I (Susan Pruitt aka SoSueMe), have filed suit against Tricia Griffith for a variety of reasons stemming from what we believe to be fiscal mismanagement of Websleuths funds; its assets; breach of contract; and improper communications/solicitation of funds from various members. A copy of the lawsuit is available online.
Websleuths will remain intact and strong before, during and after this suit is resolved. We will continue our dedicated mission in our usual, dignified manner.
This lawsuit was filed in what I believe to be the best interest of Websleuths and its members. The Websleuths Administrators and Moderators stand behind this action.
Websleuths advertising has supported this site for many years and there should never be a need for donations from our members to that end. If you have made donations supporting Websleuths, I’d personally like to know about it and my email address is below in my signature line. All such admissions will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
Out of respect for Websleuths and the legal process, while the litigation is ongoing there will be no further discussion of it until the suit is resolved.
Our members make Websleuths what it is today and I’m proud of each and every one of you and remain committed to our cause.

Websleuths.com, LLC Co-Owner
The vast majority of us are in the dark as to what is actually going on over at Websleuths. But not in total darkness.
Rumors of money grubbing by Tricia Griffiths have been around a long time. Are they valid or sour grapes? I don’t know at this time. Online communities are strange. For the most part they resemble real life behavior in few ways. Often, you see pissed off people attacking someone who they believe shunned them or did not give them what they wanted out of an online relationship. That, my friends, is common online.
Whatever is going on at Websleuths one thing is clear. The tactics of this movement are nasty. It is clear the chosen tactics are to smear Tricia to the point of ruination. To the point she buckles and throws up her hands in defeat and says – “take it”. Raine is responsible for all of this nasty online bullshit.
It is my understanding Tricia has not been served any legal papers. Until she has been, she has said she can not speak about the matters of a now very public matter. So, until that occurs all of us will wait for her side of the story.
Another thing that is becoming clear is that several long serving members and moderators have grown weary. I believe over 20 moderators are now backing SoSueMe’s lawsuit. This does say something. It says a lot.
The members at Websleuths are a hardy bunch, but give them some sympathy at this time. They don’t know what’s going on anymore than anyone else. They are hoping for the best resolution that can be had and then sleuthing can go on as usual. (and maybe I can go back to making fun of them )
Used Organ Donor
No doubt the sleuthers over at Websleuths are familiar with what Raine1212 does in her spare time, but not everyone is. This video and article were sent to me and I’m posting it. The volume of the video seems very low, so you might want to use earbuds.
Coroner, amateur sleuths work to unravel mysteries of unclaimed remains
Such was the case of Theresa Bowers, a 40-year-old woman found a year ago off Garlington Road. She’d been living in a tent beside a railroad track near General Electric for about three months, according to the Coroner’s Office. Cause of death was acute liver disease, Dill said.
He said he had exhausted all his resources and turned to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System’s unclaimed persons database, which is funded by — but not controlled by — the U.S. Justice Department.
Cathy Rhodes, an Evans, Ga., owner of a European car-repair business, saw the post a month later and reached out to her fellow sleuths on Websleuth.com, a bulletin board for people interested in crime news and in helping to track down missing children and finding the families of people who have died.
Rhodes, who goes by the name Raine1212, and Susan Bray, an assistant professor of counseling at Wichita State University in Kansas who uses the alias Nemo’smom, often work together to find families. They have worked with medical examiners in various states, and with the Coroner’s Office in Greenville County.
Rhodes and Bray started looking for Bowers’ family just before 8 p.m. on May 20. They knew her date of birth and that she had been born in Florida. Using multiple online databases, including ancestry.com, census records and archives, they found within an hour a mugshot of a Theresa Bowers from Hillsborough County, Florida. They called Dill, who ruled it out.
Then, about midnight, they found another mugshot, this one from Savannah. The woman had been arrested on a drug charge in October 2011. Rhodes found out the woman had been living in a homeless shelter there, but the director had no other information. But she and Bray were certain this was the right Bowers.
About noon the next day, Rhodes found the name of Bowers’ father, but he had died. This is the way of this work — all volunteer, Rhodes said. Starts and stops.
Fifteen minutes later, she found the name of Bowers’ mother. All of this is tracked moment-by-moment, discovery-by-discovery on websleuth.com.
Then this, at 3:17 p.m., “Mother has been located, I just got off the phone with her she confirmed date of birth. We brought another loved one home… Great Work everyone. Raine.”
Rhodes said the mother had not heard from her daughter in 10 years.
“She was so upset,” Rhodes said.
It was one of the most satisfying cases she has worked, Rhodes said.
“There’s all kinds of stories,” she said. There was a fellow who died in Greenville County last May. He had pancreatic cancer and was living in a nursing home. His sister had lost touch. Rhodes found her.
She found one woman’s sister, and when Rhodes called her house she discovered the woman had died two hours earlier. The nephew said when his mother’s burial was over, he would take care of his aunt.
“The family that cares doesn’t need to wonder where they are,” she said. “I feel like I’m giving them some closure.”

Dear Websleuths Members,
I am very sorry that my legal matter has been made public. Until I am served I cannot comment on anything.
In the meantime I am asking you to please continue the good work you do on Websleuths.
There are many people and cases out there who need your help. A good example is the
If you pick just one case from the link above and post a word of support to the family of the missing person you will be doing something that can truly make a difference.
Let’s keep in sight our mission on Websleuths. To help cases by participating in discussions. Especially those cases that have been forgotten by the main stream media.

This bee my opinion
At the beginning of Tricia’s radio show Raine starts contacting people with the vile gossip that is posted here. Tricia had just announced the syndication of her radio show and then all hell broke loose it looks like. Of course I’m sure this was the smear plan. Low and dirty!
Things go deeper and dirtier than this!!
A trusted source has told me they’re even harassing Marc Klass and Levi Page because they are friends with Tricia and they contacted Sheryl McCollum and attempted to convince her to no longer do Tricia’s radio show. The big hope here, I’m told, is that Tricia won’t fight the lawsuit. Guess what? My source says she is gonna thunder on them like Donkey Kong!!
THOUGHTS FROM AN OBSERVER……..
“Raine1212 went to SoSueMe and finally SSM had something she could use against Tricia. Somehow the mods have all fallen in behind SSM. Raine1212 will bring them all down with the way she is carrying on online, she should have shut her dang mouth and as far as I can tell she still hasn’t stopped yapping (also if you get a chance, take a look at the shout box at the very bottom of her forum, it looks like Pixie = aka Raine1212 spends most of her days in there sending smilies to herself).
After intrusively PMing people during Tricia’s show she made more efforts to contact WS members, mostly saying she needed to get the word out about Tricia so no one else would give her money, or say she needed to find all the ‘Victims of Tricia’ it was incredibly transparent, even when she was told people wanted nothing to do with this matter, she kept coming back with more attempts to contact.
It’s not Raine1212′s lawsuit, she is not mentioned in it. Yet she has taken it on as a personal vendetta.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – The rape of a 16-year-old girl by two football players in Steubenville – a case brought to light by social media – is being used by a federal prosecutor to educate athletes in West Virginia about being responsible when texting and making posts on the Internet.
U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld called the combination of alcohol, smartphones and social media “extremely volatile” in introducing a program Thursday that will be rolled out this month at 11 high schools.
A judge in March convicted the two players of raping the Weirton girl last summer after an alcohol-fueled party in Steubenville, once in a moving car, the second time in the basement of a house.
The rape case “definitely played a role in causing us to think ‘who do we need to focus upon?” Ihlenfeld told The Associated Press. “We thought ‘let’s start calling athletic directors and coaches to see if they’re interested. That investment of time hopefully will pay dividends down the road, not only because you hope the kids are going to stay out of trouble. Social media creates so many distractions off the field for coaches. Maybe we can help them avoid that situation as well.”
The program was unveiled in Wheeling, which is 26 miles south of Steubenville. It comes on the heels of a drug education program started by Ihlenfeld’s office last year called “Project Future.” The latest program, dubbed “Project Future Two-a-Days,” includes 15 minutes focusing on drugs and alcohol and 15 minutes on social media.
“We bring the perspective of ‘OK, if you do this, this is what can happen. We don’t want to see you in court,’” Ihlenfeld said.
In the Steubenville case, Ma’Lik Richmond was sentenced to at least a year in the state juvenile detention system. Trent Mays was sentenced to at least two years in juvenile detention. He was also convicted of using his phone to photograph the underage girl naked.
The case drew international attention because of the role of text messages and social media in exposing the attack and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect the Steubenville High School football team.
The girl, who had been drinking heavily, has no memory of the attack. One of the ways she learned that something had happened to her was by viewing parts of a 12-minute YouTube video filmed the night of the attack in which students made crude jokes about her.
On Monday, a grand jury in Steubenville is set to resume its investigation into whether more laws were broken in the girl’s rape. One of the key issues is whether adults who are required to report crimes knew early on of the rape last August but didn’t say anything.
Ihlenfeld said the Steubenville case “was eye opening – one night with high school students involved with alcohol, (smartphones) and social media, how that can change the lives of those involved forever.”
The West Virginia schools involved in the program are the high school football teams at Brooke, Cameron, Hundred, John Marshall, Magnolia, Wheeling Central, and Wheeling Park, and all athletes in fall sports at Oak Glen, Paden City and Weir high schools. In addition, a presentation will be made at a school expo at Bridgeport (W.Va.) High School.
Ihlenfeld invited colleges and other high schools interested in the program to contact him. Ihlenfeld’s district in northern West Virginia covers 32 counties.
The mutiny at Websleuths is all about the age old struggle over money. The green $$.
Who did what and when – I have no idea, but the heat is on Tricia to walk the plank at Websleuths and it’s my understanding she has no intention of doing so!
A source close to the current scandal at Websleuths has informed me Mrs. Griffith will fight the lawsuit that has been launched against her in the state of Texas. It is unknown if she has even been served, but it is believed she has not. (expect a lost in Utah post here if that is confirmed, LMAO)
The source also advises me things don’t add up and Tricia will easily prove this all amounts to nothing.

When you ask the kind of geeks who sit around pondering the value of our connected digital world what makes the Internet so great, one answer always pops up: Openness and free speech. Just look at how much access we have to the world’s information, they say. Look at how free speech has thrived and spread throughout most of the globe. The Arab Spring! Occupy Wall Street! “Breaking Bad” episode recaps! And I agree, all those are great examples of the way the Internet has made life better for countless people. But there is a sad fact about our newfound ability to disseminate whatever we want, anytime we want: We just aren’t very good at it.
The most poignant recent example of this comes from the New Yorker’s Ariel Levy, who took a deep dive into the Web’s role in the case of Steubenville, Ohio, football players, two of whom were found guilty earlier this year of raping an intoxicated teenage girl from West Virginia.
Our collective online behavior in cases like Steubenville and Boston could eventually have negative effects on the amazing gift of broad free speech online.
Levy’s excellent reporting will undoubtedly evoke sickening outrage at those who were responsible for violating a young girl. But it does something else, too: It shows just what happens when we, the couched commentators of the Web, try to take matters into our own hands – often acting on bad information.
This excerpt from the long-read piece highlights the problem:
In trying to determine what happened in Steubenville, the police and the public began with the same information, gathered from the same online sources: ugly tweets, the Instagram photograph, and a deeply disturbing video. But while the police commandeered phones, interviewed witnesses, and collected physical evidence from the crime scene, readers online relied on collaborative deduction. The story they produced felt archetypally right. The “hacktivists” of Anonymous were modern-day Peter Parkers—computer nerds who put on a costume and were transformed into superhero vigilantes. The girl from West Virginia stood in for every one of the world’s female victims: nameless, faceless, stripped of identity or agency. And there was a satisfying villain. Teen-age boys who play football in Steubenville—among many other places—are aggrandized and often do end up with a sense of thuggish entitlement.
In versions of the story that spread online, the girl was lured to the party and then drugged. While she was delirious, she was transported in the trunk of a car, and then a gang of football players raped her over and over again and urinated on her body while her peers watched, transfixed. The town, desperate to protect its young princes, contrived to cover up the crime. If not for Goddard’s intercession, the police would have happily let everyone go. None of that is true.
That’s right – none of that is true. And yet, in the real-time frenzy of Twitter, Facebook, and blog comment sections, we have a culture in which the nitty-gritty truth does not matter, as long as the overall narrative of any given story is right. And from that flimsy platform, we spring forward with threatening or derogatory words directed at whomever we believe are the villains.
If this is true – this is one nasty piece of shit for someone who says they have a special needs son, who tweeted they had roach problems so bad their neighbors were complaining… it all makes sense now about the roaches. I live in Metro Suburban Atlanta where homes are large and spacious, not shoved up against each other, with lawns and flowers all year around. This looks like a ghetto residence.
he self-described patriot hacker known as “The Jester” says he’ll carry out cyber attacks on countries considering granting asylum to Edward Snowden.
Beginning early Monday, The Jester hacked into several government websites in Ecuador as reports circulated that Snowden, who divulged secrets on the National Security Agency’s spying programs, could be headed there. With Venezuela emerging as a possible landing spot for Snowden, The Jester told FoxNews.com he could turn his attention to that South American country.
“These are enemies and that’s how I will be treating them, and anyone who facilitates them,” The Jester told FoxNews.com in an online interview.
“These are enemies and I that’s how I will be treating them, and anyone who facilitates them.”
- “The Jester,” self-described “hacker for good”
The Jester launched denial of service attacks on a website hosting Ecuador’s tourism ministry and on another that hosts the country’s stock market home page. While in communication with FoxNews.com, he appeared to be taking the sites on and offline. When Ecuador abruptly reversed its stance and said it would not harbor Snowden, The Jester told FoxNews.com he would restore the sites. Within minutes, they were back online.
The Jester’s real identity is not known, but he has hacked into various jihadist websites, taking down Internet forums where terrorists and wannabes gather online. He calls himself a “hacker for good,” and he told FoxNews.com that he sees people like Snowden and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks mastermind who has also disseminated government secrets, as similarly dangerous to U.S. interests.
“As jihadis groom Muslims online to commit acts against us, so [Julian Assange] grooms government personnel like [Army private and accused leaker Bradley] Manning and Snowden to do his dirty work,” the Jester told FoxNews.com.
The Jester’s computer is on display in exhibit at the International Spy Museum in Washington. The museum’s website describes him as a force against leakers and terrorists:
“The mysterious real-life hacktivist known only as Th3J35T3R (THE JESTER) shuts down websites he opposes,” the website states. “Once he has successfully disabled targets such as Wikileaks or radical Islamist sites, he triumphantly tweets ‘TANGO DOWN.’”
You all may remember there were comments left on this blog several times saying Nikol had suicided and was dead. That was all false. I remainded silent on the matter as I assumed an attorney was watching the stalking activity. Of course, Murt jumped in it with both feet and was braying away on his blog and twitter. But Nikol is alive and well. Has had a terrible time with this stalker. The twitter account of Deneale Williams has been suspended. Deneale was arrested in court today and jailed. Awaiting mugshot and charging information. Held on $30K Bond. http://www.manateesheriff.com/Public%20Interest/BookingInfo.aspx?ID=10364908
Don Carpenter won his court case today – in fact it was dismissed. LOL!
The symbolism here is rich of the entire crowd who flock around the agenda promoted… all of these individuals aka Judicious, Murt, Blackburns, Ortega, McGreggors, BringItAlready – all of them are of the same uncanny ilk. Threats and proclamations on twitter and blogs of who they are going to do in and how they are going to do it… and then …. nothing. Nothing but what they started with – the sound of too few marbles rolling around in their heads.

Another day, another high-dollar deal lost for Paula Deen following a racial-slur controversy that’s sent the Food Network and several large corporations, including Target, Sears and Wal-Mart, fleeing from the celebrity chef.
Despite the ongoing uproar, crisis management professionals say it’s not too late to turn around this sinking ship. After all, Martha Stewart was able to rebound after spending time behind bars.
But Deen’s path to recovery is a bit more complex.
Part of the problem, experts say, is that racial missteps are some of the hardest to smooth over. Another problem is the errors Deen has made so far in handling the controversy that has stemmed from her admission that she used the N-word.
“She made a fundamental mistake in the beginning by not getting in front of the story,” said Jim Joseph, the North American president of Cohn & Wolfe, a communications firm.
In today’s America, skin color and political persuasion determine what one can and cannot think, say and do; if your skin is not white, you have carte blanche to express whatever deep-rooted hatred and racism you may harbor. If you are white, however, you have to be a Liberal to get away with racist, sexist or homophobic comments or “hate-speech”. The second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, currently underway in Florida, has sparked numerous death-threats and an outpouring of racism on Twitter, but the mainstream media ignores it because it doesn’t fit their narrative; that only white Conservatives are capable of being racists.
An interesting side-note is the recent downfall of celebrity kitchen maven Paula Deen; after admitting, under oath, that she had used the “N-word” more than twenty years ago, Deen’s contract with the Food Network was doomed and she has been deluged with negative publicity and widespread criticism. Deen’s mistake was not making it widely known that she voted for Barack Obama twice; had she done so, the mainstream media would have ignored her transgression or made excuses for her and her career would have continued, unaffected. Being a white woman from the South, however, meant that everyone assumed she was just another evil Conservative – probably one of those crazy Tea Party racists – and, therefore, she was condemned.
Were a white Conservative to take to social media and express a desire to kill some “ni-ers”, there would be a national outcry and the individual in question would, without a doubt, be in jail and awaiting trail for a string of charges. This scenario is unlikely, of course, due to the fact that 99 percent of white Conservatives are not racist. Sparked by the George Zimmerman case, a number of black people – displaying an impressive level of intelligence and educational prowess – have taken to twitter to issue death threats and spew their vicious hatred of white people. This has all been largely ignored by the mainstream media. More importantly; it has been ignored by the Justice Department, who should already have dispatched the FBI to question these individuals, since they are making actual death threats and also inciting public disorder and violence.
This is just a small selection of comments that were originally published by Twitchy. Be warned: The language is graphic:
At one time, is was generally accepted that the limits of free speech were drawn at the point where that speech incites hatred or violence. The questions every reasonable American should be asking, therefore, are: Where is the outrage of the sanctimonious Left, who are so opposed to “hate-speech”? Where is the action by law enforcement? Why has the mainstream media ignored such blatant death threats and racism, sparked by the trial of a man who was, clearly, doing nothing more than defending himself?
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The first week of George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial closed Friday. At the start of the week, prosecutors and defense attorneys outlined their cases for the jury of six women. Then prosecutors began putting on their case.
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty. He has said he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in self-defense.
Beginning Monday, prosecutors will continue presenting their case for a second week. They are likely to call forensic experts and other investigators before defense attorneys get a chance to put on their witnesses.
Here are five key moments from the past week.
Both came in opening statements. Prosecutor John Guy repeated words Zimmerman had uttered under his breath to a police dispatcher as he followed Martin. In the courtroom, jaws dropped and spectators looked around at one another. Defense attorney Don West began his statement with a knock-knock joke about the difficulty of picking a jury in the case. Even he admitted the joke sounded weird.
RACHEL JEANTEL VS. DON WEST
Jeantel was on the phone with Martin moments before his confrontation with Zimmerman and is considered a key prosecution witnesses. She testified that Martin told her he was being followed by “a creepy-ass cracker.” But it was her testy cross-examination exchanges with West that commanded the most attention. Each asked the other to repeat what they were saying many times. At one moment, Jeantel urged West to move on to his next question: “You can go. You can go.” On her second day on the stand, she seemed more subdued. West asked her, “You feeling OK today? You seem different than yesterday.”
“GROUND AND POUND.” Even though he was called Friday by the prosecution, John Good, a former neighbor of Zimmerman, gave testimony that seemed to bolster the defense contention that Martin was on top of Zimmerman in the fight. Good said he saw Martin straddling Zimmerman in manner similar to a mixed-martial art maneuver known as “ground and pound.”
The 911 calls made by neighbors were repeatedly played for jurors. Neighbors asked police to respond as moans for help followed by a gunshot are heard. A series of neighbors testified about what they heard of the fight, and then prosecutors played corresponding 911 calls as witnesses sat on the stand. Some neighbors teared up as they heard their panicked voices.
MARTIN’S PARENTS ON RACE
Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, Martin’s parents, held a news conference Thursday in which their attorney said they didn’t want race injected into the trial. Some reporters asked why the nation’s most prominent black civil rights leaders had been invited to Sanford to demand Zimmerman’s arrest if race wasn’t an issue. But attorney Daryl Parks said at this stage of the case, it shouldn’t be a factor.
