Re: “South Burlington Schools to Be Closed Friday After Repeated Threats

These are the inevitable wages of constant social fever and identity politics and just plain relentless leftist-regressive 'anti-racist' assaults on anything and everything. Even the altruistic and 'progressively' pliant White Folk of Vermont can be pushed to the point where some backlash is inevitable. The double standards when it comes to who can celebrate their heritage and who must exhibit endless shame for theirs are an hysterical mockery whose days are numbered. Political Correctness is a mental disease - any free and open forum for discussion of politics and social issues quickly becomes a raft built of rational and conservative planks. It is only liberal and otherwise subversive ideas that require force and censorship and gas lighting and outright lies to sustain and keep afloat. And clearly, when those violent tactics and methods reach the ends of their tethers, as we have just witnessed in Berkeley this past week, the righteous reaction is made manifest. Good times, eh? Fun for all.

Re: “Vermont Supreme Court Hears a Case Against a Jailhouse Lawyer

I personally spent calendar year 2002 in Vermont's DOC as an inmate. I was the official facility inmate law librarian at Chittenden Regional for most of that time. I was trained by the staff of the Defender General's office to prepare motions and other filings on behalf of my fellow inmates. I 'practiced law without a license' in hundreds if not thousands of instances, having drafted and filed countless Writs of Habeas Corpus, Petitions for Post Conviction Relief and many other documents, all the while being encouraged and PAID by the DOC by the hour for doing so.

Re: “Vermont Supreme Court Hears a Case Against a Jailhouse Lawyer

This is just bizarre in the extreme. For decades the state of Vermont has been explicitly training inmates to assist each other in legal matters. Through the Inmate Legal Education program, each jail and prison has been training and encouraging official inmate law librarians (who are paid by the DOC just like inmate kitchen workers and inmate janitors) to prepare legal motions and cases on behalf of their fellow inmates. The state's attorney's office in Bennington is completely out of control. They are totally out of step with the rest of the state when it comes to prosecuting and jailing citizens, as established by the cold hard statistics. For them to do this now is a red flag warning to the people of Vermont that the Bennington State's Attorney needs to be reigned and made to heel. Ridiculous!!!
