Government Guerrillas

Today's post is again about a story that I heard at Catholic service, but this time I heard it inside the big chapel as part of the sermon delivered by a local priest at our sacred monthly mass.

The priest had just finished his reading of the Gospel when he relayed to us a story that he had heard in his younger days when he led a group of homecoming service men at Bethesda Naval Hospital. The men were all suffering from PTSD and his group encouraged them to talk about anything and most of the time they did. They talked about any and all things that were of interest to them except they all seemed reluctant to recount the horrific events that they were all struggling with.

Then one day they just started talking about killing. The stories were dreadful. Then an African American (this soldier was born in Africa) described an incident in his life that he still cannot fully move beyond. When he was a child growing up in Africa, a group of local rebels attacked his village. They massacred all of the men and women and kidnapped all of the boys and girls. We can only imagine the fate of the poor girls; but the boys were told that if they did not join their captors they would be killed. They accepted life over death but the heartless guerrillas outsmarted the children who thought that they could just say that they joined and wait for a chance to run off. The captors separated the boys into pairs of two. They gave one boy in each pair a gun and told them in order to prove their new loyalty they must kill the other member of the pair. They all did. Each boy with the gun shot the unarmed boy. The soldier who was telling the story did too. At just eleven years old he killed the other pair member: his fellow countryman, his fellow villager, his childhood friend. He has never gotten the memory from his mind.

If there were any men in the chapel that were not appalled by this story I would be surprised. Personally I was shocked, horrified and saddened by the retelling of this soldier's account of how he took a life as a little boy--that men could use one's own life to force one into doing something that is unnatural: like betraying a friend or in fact killing him. I also came to the realization that the majority of people would do the same thing if they were placed in a similar situation. It is man's uncontrollable instinct to survive at any cost. Cheat, lie or murder a friend. So when I replayed this horror story in my head it came as no surprise to me that the Justice Department of the United States of America employs tactics that parallel the tactics of those African terrorists. The reason why I know this is because they did the same thing to me and my co-defendant.

You see at around four or five in the morning of June 4, 2008, heavily armed FBI agents abducted myself, Dino (Hemorrhoids) Calabro and Joseph (Caves) Competiello from our homes. They also seized other men on that pre-dawn morning, but few were known to us three and we definitely had no criminal relation to them. The government charges me, Hemorrhoids Calabro and Caves Competiello with an impressive array of damning charges; but to me that's all that they were, just charges. I was not guilty of anything on the indictment so while I was concerned, I was not frightened. They granted no bail for us three.

In the first indictment Hemorrhoids Calabro and Caves Competiello were both facing the death penalty. At the time, I was not. This was the first step in FBI Agent Scott (the Seducer) Curtis' and AUSA Attorney Elizabeth (Lizzy the Liar) Geddes' plan to have all crimes charged lead back to me. Calabro and Competiello, the two spineless, selfish, mentally unstable cowards, were terrified into joining the government's conspiracy of treachery. The government told them that they would die a pain-riddled death by lethal injection unless they put their crimes on me. It would be easy. Before a pro-government judge they would admit to the murders that they were guilty of and then just add this one crucial lie: that I (Tommy Gioeli) ordered it. That's it! In exchange for their perjury they would receive the two most important things to a man: their freedom and their lives. Talk about coercion and duress. You can't have any more pressure than when your life hangs in the balance.

So I challenge Loretta Lynch, or anyone from the US Attorney's Office, to tell me the difference between their life-threatening tactics used on Calabro and Competiello to get me and the tactics that the terrorists used on the young African boy. I know that if they handed a gun to either of their co-conspirators (Calabro and Competiello) I would be a dead man right now. So tell me, what is the difference? Because the US Attorney's Office does it in a more "lawful" manner?

Due to my innocence, there is absolutely no evidence to collaborate the testimony of the government's perjurers (Calabro and Competiello). It is an affront to justice for the United States to label such corrupt testimony as "evidence." Team America, that is made up continually of re-offeding killers, baby rapers and psychopaths must be disbanded. Testimony must not be bartered for, especially when the payment is the life of the witness. This practice has become far more dangerous to justice than the targeted individuals themselves. There are many innocent men in prison (some serving life sentences) convicted solely on the lies of purchased testimony. This un-collaborated testimony is not allowed in New York state and most other states. The states know that the rewarded co-defendants' sole testimony that the federal government allows in its courts is unfair and unjust. This is why we must, as Americans, speak out against such corrupt practices. We must demand that the federal government stand up for equal, unmolested justice for all.

Joe (Caves) Competiello received a 12 year prison sentence for multiple, brutal, senseless murders and will soon be released upon an unsuspecting neighborhood.

Dino (Hemorrhoids) Calabro has not yet been sentenced and is believed to be out on unsecured bail and living in a multimillion dollar home in Naples, Florida at taxpayers' expense.

Stronger today than yesterday.


The Counselor

Today's post is about the continued bias: religious, ethnic and racial that my counselor (the Wicked Witch of the West) embraces in her professional duties. Whatever her beliefs are in her private life they are her affair, but when she uses her position as a federal government employee and employs her bias in dealing with her charges then she must be corrected. Everyone here at Butner Low, including the administration, is aware of her anti-white, anti-Italian and anti-religious behavior. So let me recount what happened a few days ago to a Jewish white man who asked to be moved from his present bed assignment in the unit.

Well, let me first tell you that after coming back to our unit from SHU for a violation of religious law (not eating Kosher food) he was placed in a three man cube and couldn't get along with one of the other occupants. So, he was placed by the counselor on "the beach." The beach is the front of the lobby of the unit and has two sets of bunk beds on each side. There are no walls in the front, or on the sides and its residents have absolutely no privacy. They change, sleep, fart and scratch their ass in front of everyone. The overhead glaring lights are left on all day and night. Because of the lights, noise and lack of privacy the men who live on the beach are semi-psychotic. It must be illegal to have inmates live on the beach but this is the feds and we all know that the feds can do what they want. So anyway the beach is sandwiched between the two community bathrooms that every inmate (180 when full) must use. This fact makes matters worse because even at three in the morning there is plenty of activity at the beach so the poor men that live there get little to no sleep which adds to their insanity. Although these eight spots are usually reserved as a punishment by the counselor for infractions that are too minor for a formal shot, this poor Jew wound up there through no fault of his own. This was just a matter of the counselor's bigotry.

The story is that when the counselor heard that two of the three bunkies could not get along, she then (without getting any of the facts) moves the Jew to the beach. Then after a couple of days of living in the grand central station of Butner Low he mustered up the courage to confront the counselor about making a bed change so he could get off the beach. He asks if he can be moved. Then almost as an after though he adds that it was very disrespectful for him to pray while facing the toilets. Her screaming response to him was that (and I quote), "There is a bathroom, and there is a bathroom, and there is a wall so pray to the wall. You people pray to walls anyway so what does it matter?!" Unbelievable! She went on to state that she would not then, nor would she ever, move him. A few days later after some calls to a Rabbi, and with the help of the assistant warden, she was forced to move him into a different three man cube.

This lunatic of a woman is so mentally unstable that she should be evaluated by a mental health professional immediately. Every time she comes to work she screams and hollers, rants and raves, and spits and stutters. Her disrespect for the inmates in her care is unacceptable. The incompetence with which she performs her job is legendary here on the compound and she has become the laughing stock of her peers.

This situation must be corrected before she causes a real tragedy. She has entered into the realm of dangerous. It is beyond the point that one could or should ignore. I would hope that she reads this post and gets the mental help that she so desperately needs before she is allowed to continue such a sensitive position for the BOP.

Stronger today than yesterday.


Religious Bias at Butner

This post is going to bring its readers up to date with the next example of religious bias here at the United States correctional facility known as Butner Low.

So one Sunday when I had just finished with my prayers I had a few minutes before Catholic services were to start so I sat on my walker in the hallway while the healthier prisoners set up the chairs in the small chapel. We were not going to celebrate Mass because we do not have a priest here at Butner Low so a priest from one of the local parishes comes only one day a month (usually on the second Tuesday of the month) so for the rest of the weeks we have a service with a local volunteer presiding over the said services. This is perfectly understandable due to the current shortage of priests. Maybe one day God our Father will smile on us and give Catholics here at Butner a complex of full time priests.

So anyway as I am sitting in the lobby I overhear a conversation between an inmate and a volunteer. They are talking about the religious services here at Butner. I overhear them and the inmate is telling the volunteer about programs that other religions have. The convict says that in one program in particular they invite other religious followers into their services and that we the Catholics should do the same. We should invite other members of different religions to our Catholic service so that they can more understand what we are about. I guess he doesn't understand that the doors to the Catholic church are always open to all. So he then states that he has been to other faith groups services and that there is at least one Christian group here at Butner who preaches state in their sermon, as well as literature that says that the Catholic church is the anti-Christ. I almost fell off my walker at such a repulsive statement. He says that he has spoken with the administration and that the only response has been that he was warned not to repeat this and to stop making a fuss or he would go to the SHU. He did name the religion but rather than add another brick to the wall of hate that already exists between most major religions, I choose to omit it as well as individuals names and all names of other religions that were mentioned in this bias-laced conversation. So as sick as it is to say such a filthy thing that Catholics are the anti-Christ just think of how sick it is that some of the members of the administration here at Butner (an arm of the United States Government) will allow this to go on and even endorse it by their silence. Imagine they are preaching this hate right from the podium. So at this point the volunteer leans in towards the inmate and I think she is going to chastise him for repeating such a thing. Instead she whispers that it is not the Catholics but the ------ that are the real anti-Christ. I shake my head in disbelief. He then quickly counters that this is not true and if the other major religions understood their holy books that they would surely all be Catholics. With that said I hurry inside the chapel, maybe prayer will erase the conversation of these two good but misguided hate-saturated people from my mind.

I know that many of my readers are organizing a phone call/letter writing campaign to the BOP to see if they can bring about some change in some of the policies but I feel that they can be much more effective if they contact members of congress and the media instead. In these times of religious persecution in my parts of the world we must ensure that it does not take hold here in America at a United States BOP facility. We must pull back the drapes, raise the shades, and open the windows to let the sun shine and fresh air on all the government black-bias and anti-Catholic hate. It is un-American.
