Hebrews 12:1-2 ESV –Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
My interest in certain cases continues long after the headlines cease. Such is the case surrounding Jeffrey Dahmer. His name is no doubt familiar to everyone reading this. His despicable mass murders, depraved mind, and his subsequent death at the hands of another prisoner, are general knowledge. However, there is something else about the case that stays with me, and it has to do with how his youngest victim met his death because of the homophobic and national origin bigotry of two Milwaukee Police Department officers.
Fourteen year-old Konerak Sinthasomphone did not have to die.
Konerak Sinthasomphone’s family left the Nonkai refugee resettlement camp in Thailand, and came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when Konerak was 3-years old. On May 26, 1991 when he was 14-years old, Konerak was playing soccer when Jeffrey Dahmer approached him. Dahmer offered him money to come to his apartment to pose for Polaroid pictures…

Appeals, Requests for Sanctions & petitions ohh my… (Make the insanity stop)
Hi! Santiago here.
There hasn’t been much of a change in Mr. Stalkers behavior since losing his bid for a restraining order and having one issued against him. But we expected that. I mean after all we are dealing with a mentally ill individual who in his own mind, seems to believe he is untouchable.
Since the final order was entered, his harassment hasn’t stopped. In fact he has advanced his harassment to the point where there is currently an active investigation in the works for violations. So what has exactly happened since? Well in late August Mr. Stalker decided to ask the appellate court to re-instate his temporary restraining order that request was denied.
Shortly after having been denied his request to re-instate the temporary restraining order, Mr. Stalker motioned the court to sanction me. The court…

I immediately received phone calls before making to my attorney’s office, which was two blocks from the courthouse. It appears rather than humbling himself and accepting defeat and moving on he chose to start up right again, posting more garbage. I honestly was not surprised to hear the news but the focus at that point was getting the tire fixed so I could make the trip home. A screw got stuck in my tire on the way to my attorney’s office.
On the way home, random thoughts started to emerge knowing that he was firing away talking trash telling more lies. The reality of it all hit me. This man really is mentally ill. He is obsessed with the likes of George Zimmerman, Michael Dunn and Theodore Wafer. That’s a scary concept when you think about it.
There is no gun control in the United States for people…

I’m cross-posting here from the flightattendant blog because the threat made by Santiago Rodriguez pertains to this blog.
In May 2014, a man named David Piercy filed for a restraining order against Santiago Rodriguez. The court granted Piercy a temporary restraining order against Santiago. There was a hearing scheduled for a ruling on the permanent restraining order. As I understand it, there were exchanges on Twitter where Santiago became aware that bloggers and others had allegedly been harassed by Piercy. Someone pointed Santiago in my direction and he reached out to me.
Subsequently, Santiago asked that I put his name on the border of my blog, We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident, as a writer. This is how it happened …
