Gonzo Rant About ‘Standing Up To Cops’

This is The Legendary Dr. Hunter S. Thompson inveighing over his “bumbling, officious political arrest for DWI.”

According to the doctor, the point of the story is to show others how important it is to stand up to the police. But there is a certain poetry to the language of the missive he wrote to the DA, a hapless lackey of the legal community who insisted Thompson should come to the courthouse to be re-arrested because of some deficiency in the affidavit of arrest.

Naturally, the local media was to have been given the photo op of recording it all for posterity, pointless pubic hairs as they are, totally unable to gather relevant news and present it to their trembling bosses or a public long since conditioned to hide their eyes and weep when confronted with this kind of idiocy.

I think you might find this to your taste, dear hearts. It’s a deep dish serving of Gonzo Journalism laced with bat guano and other poisonous substances fit for a dart from a pygmy’s blow gun.

Now hear this.

As always, the floggings will continue until morale improves.


Put all the money in; let’s roll ’em again…When you’re hot, you’re hot

Six Shooter Junction – Looks like the good ol’ boy system has all the power? Look again. There are others eyeballing the situation.

Bet on it.

Hear this tale of woe about a millionaire co-founder of the local TEA Party who tried to save himself forty grand in campaign costs by attempting to bribe his only primary opponent.

Listen to the story.

So mote it be.

Do you see the case?

Prospective jurors fully informed that if they cannot see how the state has proven its allegations, they are within their rights to acquit an accused offender in the Twin Peaks cases.

The primary nature of the offense was that people who wear leather and ride big, loud, fat, nasty American V-Twin motorcycles showed up at a bar to talk about where the multi-million-dollar “motorcycle safety fund” is, why it’s not being spent but used to “balance” the budget,” the state of handgun legislation that would allow open carry, and other matters of state pondered by the suits on May 17, 2015.

How perfectly pushy of them. The very idea.

“They didn’t come here to drink beer and eat barbecue,” said Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton of the Waco Police Department.

You know the story. Now hear the additional allegations presented in a superseding indictment against Jake Carrizal, a Bandido from Dallas, who is scheduled to be the first of 152 indicted for engaging in organized criminal activity to face trial in September.

And the floggings will continue – until morale improves. Having fun?

The Power of Nine

Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. And the Lord said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”
And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said: In the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.
Six Shooter Junction – In the Kingdom of Fife, on the Firth of Forth, there is a place near Midlothian called St. Clair Castle, and there is a chapel…Men travel east from there. Be it known, they have arrived herein.
There is a certain power in calculation. It is the power of nine in which one totals all, casts out all nines and figures the difference.
The answer thus obtained so rapidly is invariably true and correct as arrived at by 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 – numbers divisible only by themselves.
Thus, they are known as PRIMARY NUMBERS.
Take this message to my brother; you will find him everywhere…

AG: Claim By David Wayne Spence’s Son ‘Has No Basis’


Austin – The Texas Attorney General’s office requested a District Court to dismiss a suit by the son of David Wayne Spence seeking declaratory judgment that the state wrongfully executed his father for the murder of three teenagers at a Lake Waco park in July, 1982.

Assistant Attorney General Christopher Lee Lindsey in his motion to dismiss Jason Spence’s claim cited a procedural rule which provides for the dismissal of a cause of action if it has no basis in law or fact.

A casue of action has no basis in law if the allegations, taken as true, together with inferences reasonably drawn from them, do not entitle the claimant to the relief sought. A cause of action has no basis in fact if no reasonable person could believe the facts pled,” according to the motion, which gave Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 91a as the authority for the pleading.

Spence’s suit, filed April 19 in the 345th District Court, claimed numerous reasons why the case against his father and two co-defendants, Anthony and Gilbert Melendez, was false, among them allegations that the parties involved could not have committed the murders because of discrepancies in their statements, the time line of the events leading up to the murders and the disposal of the bodies, evidentiary claims of junk science, and evidence that one of the defendants was not present in Waco at the time of the killings.
