 Case of Kelley Williams-Bolar, Akron mom jailed for sending kids to suburban school, stirs emotions .  
 
  
Sadly, there was no music in the Akron Ohio courtroom that railroaded Ms Kelley Wiliams- Bolar.  It should should have included this treasure from the Good Ol’ Days of whuppin’ slaves and sellin’cotton.
       “Come, listen, all you gals and boys, I’m just from Tuckyhoe;

I’m gwine to sing a little song, My name’s Jim Crow.
Chorus: Wheel about, an’ turn about, an’ do jis so;
Eb’ry time I wheel about, I jump Jim Crow.
I went down to de river, I didn’t mean to stay,
But there I see so many gals, I couldn’t get away.
I’m rorer on de fiddle, an’ down in ole Virginny,
Dey say I play de skientific, like massa Paganini.
I cut so many munky shines, I dance de galloppade;
An’ w’en I done, I res’ my head, on shubble, hoe or spade.
I met Miss Dina Scrub one day, I gib her sich a buss;
An’ den she turn an’ slap my face, an’ make a mighty fuss.
De udder gals dey ‘gin to fight, I tel’d dem wait a bit;
I’d hab dem all, jis one by one, as I tourt fit.
I wip de lion ob de west, I eat de alligator;
I put more water in my mouf, den boil ten load ob ‘tator.
De way dey bake de hoe cake, Virginny nebber tire;
Dey put de doe upon de foot, an’ stick ’em in de fire.[1]

 

I am shocked at the lack of outrage. Where is Morris Dees, Al, Jesse, The NAACP and anyone else who could stir an uproar over this late term abortion of justice?   Why wasn’t she bailed?  Who was her lawyer?  I don’t hear much very good lately about Ohio but its neighbor Indiana, is ass over teakettle  in KKK membership. state lines must blur.  I gotta say this one tops even my wildest, sickest imagination.  Kucinich sues over olive pits.  Think about it. 
 
According to one of the many reports I have read the DA’s office insisted on the charges.  Yet they plea bargain rapists.  This woman was sent to jail because she wanted her daughters to be safe.  She lived in public housing and fudged on her address.  Capital Felony what? And the school system wants restitution and this woman,  this mother,  about to become a teacher, is now a felon and can’t teach.  This woman is my hero.   By her actions and her love for education and her kids she has been screwed up the ass by the State of Ohio and where is the outrage?  I can hardly type for my own anger.  Who is the DA and who is the jury and who is the judge and what is going on in the land of the free and the home of the brave? The school system of Akron spent $6 grand following this arch criminal .  Don’t cry poormouth Akron.
 
I am so tied up in knots on this one I think I must do some cooling down and additional research on this matter,  Like finding out who the jurors were; her lawyer, the ADA and WHY it happened.
 
This an outrage. This  is almost as ugly as Emmett Till.  This has to be repaired.
Someone must step forward and reverse this outrage and fast.  Who has the balls????
Who?

Twelve years ago my husband was pistol whipped where he worked.  The assailant hit him several time on the left side of his head leaving him with a closed head trauma, permanent disability, severe headaches and laundry lists of ongoing side effects that have gotten worse instead of better.   For many years we thought this injury was caused by a closed  fist until an eyewitness mentioned it had been a gun butt that was used.  The men were armed.  That is the full disclosure part.

When the framers wrote our constitution the second amendment was logical to me.  A war had just been fought, trespass and killings still were a part of the landscape of 1776.  Added to that many Americans shot for food.  Disallowing guns to me seemed like a bad idea.  I often think today we confuse the framers with the store front fortune tellers who can see all and tell all for a price.  The men who wrote the constitution were not seers.  They did not appear to have divine vision neither did they claim to have insider future info that guided them.  I think they wrote a damn fine outline for a new and revolutionary country.  An untried experiment. Until the American and French revolted royalty pretty much called the shots and it was an iffy business.  In France (pre-1789), the birth of prince and then a princess was called the “choix du roi”.   First you have an heir and then you marry off your daughter to another crown prince and gain more of everything.  Marie Antoinette was an arch duchess of Austria.   So one of the jobs of the framers was to abolish this entitlement of one ruling class and make everyone equal (sort of).  What I’m not sure of is how long they expected this country to last or grow.   Certain inalienable rights  however were declared and bearing arms was one of them.  You did not have to be a soldier of the king to strike fear into people who threatened your sovereignty.

Sadly the folks who like to shoot guns and desire to own and wear them are not always the good  citizens.   The bad guys too are equally entitled to have them. The 2nd amendment said nothing about shooting nor did it specify under what circumstances the arms could be used.   Talk about your open to interpretation clause. The framers simply (I think) did not want Mr. John Q. American to be invaded by gun-toting foreigners who were going to steal their land and freedom. And I agree.

I am confused today about guns and gun laws and killers (well – not the killers).  I do not own a gun for one reason only.  I fear I would use it and I do not want that responsibility.  Like the bell, once the bullet leaves the chamber it has its own path and once it’s on it, people can get hurt or killed.  Like yesterday.  So while I respect the second amendment for its desire to protect Americans from all enemies, foreign and domestic – I am not sure enough people really understand and truly respect the amendment and how profound it is.  We live in confusing times.  And as an aside – I think it is time for SCOTUS member Scalia to have at least the Minnesota Multiphasic
