Athens middle school teacher busted for indoor marijuana farming

Dearest Mr. LePage,

I'm so sorry for your troubles. I myself am a former state trooper and former teacher. You, Mr. LePage, are a hero to me. You are fighting a fight to free others. If you stay and fight you are my hero. If you leave the police state of AmeriKa, you are still my hero. I sense, from your statement, that you are ready to stay and fight, no matter what the cost. I admire your courage.

Please be advised that most of these people attacking you, do not have the ****s to do it in person. So the **** with them!

But this doesn't have to go very far, if only citizens would understand and take part in jury nullification.

What I advise the readers of the Athens Banner, is to vote, thereby being able to serve on a jury. Once on a jury, do not be bullied by other jurors, the PA, or the judge. It only takes one to stand up!

As for you sir, I guess that you have to decide, or maybe you already have, whether to fight this, perhaps becoming a political prisoner inside Georgia's prison system, or perhaps winning in the court system, but either way, gaining an ultimate victory to bring the healing power of cannabis to others, or leaving the USA for your own health and safety.

I wish you health, and I wish you well. Sadly, most of the readers and most of the residents do not understand the idea of jury nullification.

Fully Informed, Your Rights as a Juror
http://www.jerryesmith.com/index.php/40

"It is presumed, that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumed that courts are the best judges of law. But still both objects are within your power of decision… you [juries] have a right to take it upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the la w as well as the fact in controversy."--John Jay, our nation's first Supreme Court
Justice

"Imagine you are a juror for a criminal case. The evidence is clear that the defendant broke the law. However, your conscience tells you the law is unjust and should not be enforced. What do you do? The power to convict and acquit comes from the people."-- Robert Guest

"Looks like the police were too busy wasting their time busting someone for gardening to prevent the robbery at the waffle house. No wonder that 30% of murders and 60% of rapes go unsolved."--Kevin Hunt

Another Fraudulent Jobs Report

"What can Americans do? Elections are pointless. Presidents, Senators, and US Representatives represent the interest groups that provide their campaign funds, not the voters. In two decisions, the Republican Supreme Court has made it legal for corporations to purchase the government. Those who own the government will decide what it does, not those who vote."

"All Americans can do is to accept the serfdom imposed on them or take to the streets and stay in the streets despite being clubbed, tasered, arrested, and shot by the police, who protect the power structure, not the public."--Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

West Athens adult entertainment club suffers minor damage in weekend fire

There is a natural gas leak right in front of this business.

Just like there was a natural gas leak right in front of Campus View Church of Christ on Lumpkin. I called Athens Gas about that one.

It seems like no one can smell or notice things anymore. Perhaps because everyone is off in their own little world with their smart phones and smoking while at the gasoline station.

Leaks, Odor or Emergencies 877.427.4321
https://www.atlantagaslight.com/

If you don't believe me, contact Athens Clarke County and see if they did any work after Atlanta Gas corrected the problem. Or contact Jeff Arthur, Youth Minister at Campus View.

http://www.campusviewchurch.org/

Every time I walk around Athens, I smell natural gas leaks.

Every time I walk around Athens, I see zombies. It's like I live in "Idiocracy".

I was with GSP then, but not in Atlanta. I rushed to Atlanta on Sunday night.

It was a mob mentality against Richard Jewell. There were GBI agents and members of GSP saying bad stuff about Jewell because they said that they knew him and people were ready to lynch him.

Paroled career felon arrested for burglarizing Athens Jewish center

Well, if I've jumped the gun here Yeti, please excuse me and I'm sorry.

I'm so angry right now, and ready to fight anyone I guess. Why am I angry?

Troubles with women...I wouldn't wish my troubles on anyone. I just think about lines from "Jeremiah Johnson" and the line, "traded her for a Hawken gun".

Okay, I'm going for a walk in the cool air to calm down before I make a bigger arse out of myself.

I don't have a Google Glass, and the event was not recorded by me, but I did observe 4 people, one of which was the Rabbi holding a child, screaming and yelling. I saw Payne drive away.

I am former GSP. I have been to Israel. I actually attended the Chabad Fundraising event a few years ago.

Have I offended you in some manner Yeti? Do you know me? I don't know you.

To my knowledge, I have not made any offensive statements towards you.
So Yeti, if you are making some snide comment to me, just go ahead and say it, or in this case, write it. What's the deal?

Hi Yeti. Are you referring to me?

I never stated any such thing about aggressive acts. And I never made any such statement discussing Payne's rights.

I merely made a statement that myself and my brother did observe the incident.

So what's the deal?

Yeti, I don't have video, but I observed Payne man being chased by the Rabbi. The Rabbi was holding his child with one arm and shouting and screaming at Payne and pointing his finger at him.

It was about 1700 hours yesterday. I was criticizing myself because I didn't note Payne's 10-28 or tag, because I knew something was going on.

I fully expected them to come out of the Chabad House with M4 carbines.

Beer

Fessor, I'm just curious as to why my two posts, one about how to drive a manual shift transmission, and one post about how to change a tire along with a ZZ Top video, were downvoted.

Try and make a couple of helpful posts...I mean does everyone hate my f@@@ing guts here, or what? Just for future reference, what the @@@@ was wrong with posting helpful youtube videos?

I guess because some of y'all are UGA employees who feel entitled and y'all play on facebook and the Athens Banner and Athens Talks all day long, and y'all get angry if y'all actually have to work, and y'all for sure don't want to learn anything, all y'all want to do is gripe.

So downvote away, but I'm still curious as to what was so wrong with my posting youtube clips on how to drive manual shift transmissions and how to deal with flat tires.
Oh well.

“…The Israeli soldiers shoot with silencers. The bullets from the M-16 rifles tumble end over end through the children’s slight bodies. Later, in the hospital, I will see the destruction: the stomachs ripped out, the gaping holes in limbs and torsos. Yesterday at this spot the Israelis shot eight young men, six of who were under the age of eighteen. One was twelve.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
