Beekeeper Blog

Submitted by CatWhisperer on Sun, 11/13/2016 - 22:31

This is a blog of the prosecution of  Benjamin Gilmore, a local beekeeper whom many believe was wrongfully prosecuted and convicted for the Penny Flats fire that happened in downtown Fort Collins on October 24, 2011. He made the mistake of being associated with the Occupy Fort Collins movement, and had let them borrow a camper for their use. The Occupy Fort Collins demonstration was one block east of the Penny Flats building which was under development at the time. The discrepancies in this prosecution merit note, and it shows some of the drawbacks of prosecutions in the Eight Judicial District of Colorado:

  • It's not about justice, it's about getting a conviction.
  • It's not about truth, guilt, or innocence, it's about what you can get a jury to believe.

If anybody doesn't believe that, Google up Timothy Mastersangry

Want to Help Justice in Larimer County, Colorado?

If you really want to, don't retain Judge Carroll Michelle Brinegar. We can't do anything about (Eighth Judicial District) District Attorney Clifford E. Riedel, who is running unopposed, but you can choose to remove a judge from that bench that should never have been put in that position in this jurisdiction. As an ex-employee of DA Riedel, it can reasonably be assumed that Judge Brinegar will be biased, consciously or unconsciously, towards the prosecution, e.g. her ex-coworkers.

This recommendation was bought about by a Loveland Reporter-Herald news report “Berthoud man's trial internet luring of a child postponed". I commented on the strangeness of that case, but the comment has since been removed. This case is interesting, because the alleged perpetrator, Jarold Alan Mentzer, “…was arrested in November 2013 in Berthoud after Loveland police conducted a months-long investigation…”, but the case has dragged on for almost three years next month (November). Here is the reason given for the postponement: “"It was due to a jury not being available to be polled," DA spokeswoman Jodi Lacey wrote in an email."”

I find that a very un-plausible, hard to swallow reason for a 

The Destruction of a Medically Disabled Man in Fort Collins

My eyes don't work well, and I can't figure out how to post this without it being The World's Longest Single Paragraph, so ... with apologies ... I'm hoping it's okay to just post this link:

Site Meister Says: I asked the Spirit, and was told to help this man out. So following is the whole story verbatim as written by Neil. It's a very interesting story on the   continued   corruption and fraudulent judgment in our local community… Bear with the writer, as it's a long story, but well worth pursuing to its completion. Also, please become familiar with Proverbs 11:1 and 20:23, as the Lord detests dishonest scales (as in scales of justice). I pray that the Lord keeps us from becoming tools of Satan through complacency, compromise, or lack of caring.  In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Having visited the town on several occasions, we fell in love with the lifestyle that defines Fort Collins: rather small-town hospitality and pace, with most of the city amenities, weather that works for our favorite activities, a host of outdoor options, and relatively affordable housing.

You should worry about Randy Jensen because fraud makers create fodder for themselves...

Paraphrased & edited from an email I received (Please readers read and pray  Proverbs 31:8-9 because we live in false and dark times):
Randy Jensen has a 2½ day trial beginning tomorrow at 11:00am in Judge Berenato's court, 5D

Randy has been sitting in LCDC way too long for these BULLSHIT charges – he had a public defender who told him it was ok to communicate with the mother of his twin babies. He wrote her letters and called her from the jail, whence three different deputies reported him for violating a restraining order that he thought had been lifted. Every time he turns around they add charges and jail time. Randy has a new PD, the old one will be called as a witness. New one, as related by confidential sources, is not a ball of fire.

There is no need for a restraining order, the mother was never a victim. It was an automatic one and seems to remain despite the babies' mother's letters and in-court pleas to drop the restraining order. Seems the grandma is driving it – 

Shame on the Coloradoan for their reporting on the Dyers...

Submitted by CatWhisperer on Sat, 08/16/2014 - 22:07

Here's another example of the Coloradoan going on the offensive to insure that somebody is tried in the press, and that a fair trial is impossible in this corrupt county. The Coloradoan and it's staff should be ashamed of the way they have reported on the Dyers! They should resign en masse or be fired, because what they have done is akin to burning a cross in the Dyers' front yard. They should be sued for libel at minimum for publishing unsubstantiated allegations and for not properly following up on their leads.

Lets look at one example… "I didn't even know they ever had a daughter," said Louisa Lombardo, 32. Lombardo has lived with her husband and two children in the 100 block of East Trilby Road since January. Though they moved in two months after a 7-year-old girl was removed from Douglas and Leah Dyer's custody next door, Lombardo said she was still taken aback. …Why even post that nonsense? If the lady and her family moved in two months after the child was taken, WHY WOULD SHE KNOW? Is she taken aback by her own ignorance? Has she attempted to meet the neighbors? Has she ever gone through the trauma of getting a child ripped out of the home by CPS? PLEASE…

Possible explanation for Larimer County judge's absence

Submitted by CatWhisperer on Sun, 07/14/2013 - 03:27

On Friday, July 12, the Coloradoan came out with a story titled “No explanation for Larimer County judge's absence”, which is quoted below. So I did a little research on Google for Robert Rand. Google Scholar came up with the following entry from the 10th Federal District (Order quoted below):

CAROL DAVY, Plaintiff,
v.
JUDGE ROBERT RAND, in his official capacity as Larimer County Court Judge, CLIFFORD REIDEL, in his official capacity as District Attorney for Larimer County, and JOHN HICKENLOOPER, in his official capacity as Governor of the State of Colorado, Defendants.
Civil Action No. 13-cv-00509-PAB.
United States District Court, D. Colorado.
March 1, 2013.

Now what is that about? Google Scholar doesn't

Ever read a book that really pissed you off?

Submitted by CatWhisperer on Sun, 04/21/2013 - 15:24

Note: Updated 11/25/2016

One of those that gets your blood boiling, your blood pressure and heartbeat up? If you have you know the feeling. I just finished reading through such a book. The name of the book is "Drawn to Injustice", by Timothy Masters with Steve Lehto. It's well worth whatever they charge for it.

Having done my share in removing Judges Blair and Gilmore in 2010, what gets me pissed is that I've personal experience with some of these individuals, and the shell game they play with both justice and truth. How many more perpetrations in Larimer County remain undiscovered? How many more innocents sent from this jurisdiction to DOC on false testimony, malfeasant prosecution, and with the help of the fantasies of statistical phrenologists? Innocents that just didn't have the luck of drawing a Maria Liu… You know, where there is smoke there is fire, and an iceberg only shows 10% of it's volume above the surface.

It irks that as you read, you find out that one of the main individuals who fought TOOTH and NAIL to prevent justice for Tim Masters after Maria Liu became involved was Cliff Riedel, who got 'elected' in our judicial district to District Attorney in 2012. 'Elected' in quotes

Where's My Mug?

Submitted by Al.sFair on Sun, 02/06/2011 - 12:08

We see mug shots every day in the Coloradoan.  Mug shots of our neighbors.  Some guilty, some innocent, some undercharged but most overcharged; some for misdemeanors, and some for felonies.

That’s just how it works.  You are accused and arrested.  Finger printed and photographed.  Lice showered and told to spread your ass cheeks and cough.

Even when the charges against you are dropped, as they were against a young guy named Temple, we still see his mug shot rather than a more appropriate picture of a free innocent man celebrating his vindication.

Ms. Blair laid another big egg on her way out.  Finding probable cause to bring Mr. Temple to trial.  I am relieved that she is now an ambulance chaser.  If you want to hire her, that’s just a sign of your bad judgment, but the rest of us won’t have to unwillingly deal with her as in the past.

Mr. Temple, I admire your tenacity and the size of your balls.  They must be somewhere between softball and bowling ball size.  As you sat in jail for moths, I am sure you were pressured
