Bruce Shore, a 51-year-old unemployed man from Philadelphia, pleaded not guilty to felony email harassment on Friday in a Kentucky federal court, where he was arraigned for sending angry emails to Sen. Jim Bunning.
Shore emailed Bunning's office on Feb. 26 after seeing the Kentucky Republican complain on C-SPAN that a debate over extending unemployment benefits had caused him to miss a college basketball game. The debate went late because Bunning himself prevented it from moving to a vote.
In response, Mr. Shore wrote some emails, one of which was the following:
I am at a LOSS of words for SENATOR BUNTING blocking unemployment benefits for me and my children. If I do NOT get my check next week I WILL HAVE NO FOOD AND WILL BE ON THE STREET.
What kind of people are you? 10 Billion goes to the war every couple days and to Wall street weekly. I want my benefits or there will be people starving and dying.
What is wrong with you people. NOW is NOT the time to play politics with childrens lives.
ARE you'all insane. NO checks equal no food for me. DO YOU GET IT??
IF THIS POLITICAL GRANDSTANDING DOES NOT END TODAY - WE WILL COME TO YOUR OFFICES AND MAKE OUR POINT. YOU ARE PLAYING A LIFE AND DEATH GAME HERE.
DO YOU GET IT.

WTF??? It's now "felony email harassment" to write angry letters to a politician that supposedly represents you? It's just a guy upset by a Senator's votes. Even if this was a private person, and not a public figure that feeds off the taxpayers, you'd have a hard time making a case for a felony in a non-fascist state, but I guess the U.S. has now become an outright fascist one.
Whatever happened to the right to petition for a redress of grievances? Shore has been ordered by a black-robed tyrant (the brain-washed masses call them judges) to have "no contact with the Bunning family". Turns out the Senator's son is a Federal black-robed tyrant (hey, the ruling political class makes sure it perpetuates itself like hereditary royalty).
So please, think twice before complaining to your "elected" officials, it could get you into a lot of trouble.
You need to blame the Senator who did the wrong thing and then chose to press charges. I doubt the guy will be found guilty here in Philly, based on how many people here ate out of the dumpsters after benefits were cut.ReplyDelete
