Presumption of Innocence Has Been Missing For Decades

In America, there is no longer such a thing as Presumption of Innocence. Any high-profile crime allegation is tried in the Media and whoever controls the power determines a person’s guilt or innocence – often determined according to political ideology.

In our brainwashed circumstances, we unwittingly go out of our way to make sure not everyone is afforded their inalienable rights or the rights under the law of this law. It amazes me how many work toward their own destruction.

Yesterday it came out that during the Obama administration, the Department of Justice removed around a half-million names from the National Criminal Background Check System (NICS). That, of course, sent the Left into another tailspin but not as severely as one might expect because it was a Leftist administration carrying out the act.

According to the information I have been gathering, it was determined by Obama’s DOJ that anyone on the NICS list who was a “Fugitive of Justice” and were determined to not have crossed any state lines to flee from justice were dropped from the list. This interpretation was upheld in court (not that that matters anymore).

The Fugitive Felon Act makes it a felony to be a Fugitive From Justice and cross a state line. Because only convicted felons can be a candidate for the NICS list, those not considered to be felons were rightfully removed from the list.

I might remind people that simply because you have been labeled a fugitive from justice does not necessarily make you a convicted felon and have certain of your rights denied you. Anyone who skips a court date appearance is considered a fugitive from justice. If a person skips a court date because he or she must answer to the failure of child support, for example, are they to be automatically made a felon (a dangerous one)?

We have become so programmed to react just as the programmers want us to react, it is scary. Due to our blinded anger and hatred of almost anything with political strings attached, we willingly and gleefully destroy what is left of our rights under the law.

Is there no end to this madness?

Protection of our rights is so fundamental and necessary for any thoughts of Life, Liberty, and Property, that sometimes the act of protection places us in odd and uncomfortable situations. That is why Presumption of Innocence is so vitally important. When that internationally recognized right is completely gone, your individuality and the rights that go with it, are also no longer a part of your existence.

For eight years I didn’t have a lot good to say about President Obama (not that I do about any of them) but perhaps this is one thing he did that was the right thing to do.

Illegal Deer Hunting “Causes Animal to Suffer Extreme Pain”

I generally avoid publishing stories about poaching, but this one caught my attention. It’s not the fact that a man shot at a deer in the nighttime, which is against the law, and that he went back the next day to find the deer he had wounded. The man has been charged with various items of law-breaking but the one that has me puzzled is that he has been charged with “felony aggravated cruelty to animals.” According to the charges, the poacher, “manifested a depraved indifference to animal life or suffering, did intentionally, knowingly or recklessly cause extreme physical pain to an animal, cause the death of an animal, or physically torture an animal.”

I need a little help here in figuring out how this alleged deer poacher did all these things. First he “manifested a depraved indifference to animal life and suffering.” How did he do this? Were there witnesses that heard him say he was going to go shoot at a deer, in the dark, and he hoped or didn’t care whether he wounded the deer or not because he was going to let it suffer all night long, and then kill it? And he knew that shooting and wounding a deer, intentionally mind you, would cause “extreme physical pain (and torture) to an animal?” Or that he knew shooting at a deer at night might kill the animal? Whether one is poaching a deer or legally hunting a deer, the object is to kill it…unless, in this case, the Maine Warden Service intends to prove the alleged poacher only intended to wound the deer and make it suffer – cruelly, with extreme physical pain and torture.

I have hunted deer for many years. I’m not as good a shot as I used to be when I was younger, but I still consider myself better than average. I have never met anyone who ever expressed the ability to shoot at a deer, or any other animal for that matter, to intentionally wound it. That’s one hell of a good marksman. To shoot and kill a deer is a bigger target to hit, and that’s difficult enough. Now we are supposed to believe this guy, at night, making it even more difficult, aimed at and pulled the trigger of a weapon with the intention of only wounding it, so he could intentionally cause “extreme physical pain,” and “torture,” along with “suffering?”

I think what we are witnessing is just another example of what I have been writing about for years – the mind manipulation by Environmentalists of wildlife managers (in this case wildlife law enforcement) in order to brainwash them into believing the nonsense of the charge. Don’t get me wrong. If this guy was illegally taking game, throw the book at him. But to somehow think a felony charge of “aggravated cruelty to animals,” as the charge claims, is demented thinking. Unless this warden has proof of what I have just described, he better drop those charges. What’s more important, if this particular warden, and/or the Maine Warden Service, actually is of the position that shooting at and wounding a deer deserves felony aggravated animal cruelty charges, the department should be shut down.

The question I have is this: If this guy was legally hunting and fired at a deer, 10 minutes before the end of legal hunting, discovered he had wounded the deer, and tracked it as best he could, deciding to come back in the morning to pick up the track again, eventually finding the deer, dead or otherwise, would this hunter then be charged with the same felony aggravated cruelty to animals?

The only difference that I can see between the case where charges were filed and the one I just described, is that the first one happened after dark. I hope like hell there ain’t a judge anywhere in the world that would agree that this alleged poacher, went about his business of breaking the law, to intentionally cause pain and suffering by deliberately aiming to wound the deer and not kill it.

God help us!
