More from the Rochester Peanut Gallery

I love rattling folks cages....especially when the folks in question are powerful judges or attorney generals. Judging from the responses the Rochester Peanut gallery is leaving on this blog and my other blog I'd say I've rattled them so hard their teeth are about to fall out. Here is the latest comment from the Alabama Court Watch Blog....peanut gallery in bold/italics and mine follow.

Just to let you know- so you don't have to take credit for anything. I believe that I told you that George and the DA would be stepping down.

Nonsense. Prove that you told me or my readers that. I remember a comment on my other blog where some anonymous person (perhaps it was you) said Judge Simpson DID step down and DID NOT handle the bond hearing. Which was a lie. I have the paperwork to prove it. The DA didn't step aside til things started getting a little hot and not until after I began talking about it on the radio.

Believe me it had nothing to do with your letter writing and calling campaign- that's really not an effective way of handling things anymore.

Sure, sure. Except that most people are smart enough to figure out that if the Judge and D.A. were going to do the right thing and step aside then they would have done it at the beginning and never handled the bond hearing. That they didn't do it until after I started talking about this case tells everyone reading this blog and following this story all they need to know about what happened and why.

As to whether or not calling and writing is an effective way to handle things this day and time....well it was obviously effective for this purpose because it got you scurrying around like a rat trying to cover your ass.

Especially when it comes from a mentally unstable, druggie, that complains about everything and everybody.

Now that's about the pot calling the kettle black ain't it? I admit an affinity for weed and make no bones about it. I also advocate for changes in the drug laws that, if implemented, would have prevented John Alexander Rochester from being arrested in the first place. If that makes me a 'druggie' then what does trafficking meth, trafficking cocaine, pills and marijuana make John Alexander Rochester? And you for supporting his free ride through the legal system?

Mentally unstable? How so? I'm obviously mentally stable enough to bust your ass for tinkering with my justice system.

Complains about everything and everybody? Oh, you mean since I am not a Democrat or Republican and go after both instead of towing a party line that I complain about everybody? You'd be right about that. You are all fair game in my book and at least I am consistent.

Oh yeah, personal attacks (mentally unstable druggie) only show everyone that you have no real argument or defense for your actions.

It's hard to take you serious anymore. It's like the little boy that cried wolf. You've cried wolf too many times. Most people around the state think you're a joke.

Where and when have I cried wolf before and not been vindicated? Please provide some examples with documentation. Further....there are just over 4 million people in this state...your statement implies that you have talked to ALL OF THEM and that, in your opinion, they think I am a joke. We all know that cannot be true. If you want people to believe you then you have to post things that remotely resemble HONEST.

Alex's trial is coming up. A new judge will take over. Alex will plead to something, hopefully he will serve no time to 5 years because this is his first offense. He's been in rehab for 6 months now with limited privileges and drug tested weekly.

It is my understanding that this is not his first offense. And, it must be really nice to spend six months in treatment when you are charged with drug trafficking. It is unheard of in anyone elses case that they are granted bonds as low as John Alexander Rochester was for the same offenses. Ahhh the elite and priviliged. Must be nice. You should tell JAR to enjoy the comforts of treatment while he can....prison won't be nearly as posh and gentle.

Judge Rochester will be retiring in a year to two years- so don't think you're running him off.

Good. One less corrupt, holier-than-thou, asshole on the bench. Not that I have much faith that his replacement will be any better. Further...Judge Rochester might want to consider moving that retirement date up a bit....else he will leave the bench with some nasty black smudges on his record.

Be sure to read the comments on yesterday's post. The last 5 are really good.

Thank you for your appreciation of my work....being called GOD is a bit much though.

I want to comment on the prediction of 0 to 5 years punishment for John Alexander Rochester as posted by the Rochester supporter.

What that says to me is that this case has already been decided in the back room with over glasses of scotch and fine cigars.

According to Alabama criminal code and one of my lawyer friends trafficking cases carry a mandatory 3 year term of imprisonment. That means or has meant in the past that the person has to serve three years. With two trafficking charges that would mean six years. The code also says that the sentence is not to be suspended or deferred.

The second thing regarding the comment of 0 months to 5 years, I doubt there are many if any cases in Clay County where a person with mulitiple counts of trafficking got 5 years or less.

On the 6 months in rehab, he has been bonded out so none of the 6 months would be counted toward his time. If he had petitioned the court to go into drug rehab and had not bonded out it would count as jail credit, but the way it is written up he should not get jail credit for the time spent in rehab.

Today I am launching a letter writing campaign to newspapers that cover the Clay County area. Those would be the Anniston Star, the Talladega Daily Home and the Coosa Co. paper. This must be made much more public so that the public is aware of the judicial fuckery happening in this case, so that parents and loved ones of those incarcerated by Judge Rochester for drug offenses are aware of what is happening and to apply public pressure to those who will be tapped by the Attorney General's office to carry out this case.

When this case comes to trial there will be a protest on the courthouse lawn complete with citizens who have themselves, or have loved ones who have spent years in prison for much less significant drug offenses.

Loretta, someday the world will give you recognition for your work and I will stand first in line to personally congratulate you.

It might take a while, but I'm convinced this will eventually happen.

Thank you for being a true inspiration.

It's hard to take seriously anyone who doesn't know what adverbs are for.
