Police department exposed

update

The Chief of police reached out to us, though she didn’t exactly answer our question. Below is that correspondence.

Chief: What are your questions about our policies?

WoC: Our platform was recently informed that your department rejected a potential application, partly on the grounds of an accusation to which an individual was found innocent. We know this because we were able to pull up this disposition. Though the individual involved has declined to comment on this, I thought I would touch base with you guys and find out how that was able to be used against this person, regardless of this disposition?

Chief: The individual you are talking about KNOWS why he was turned down. You have to tell the truth. I will be glad to talk to you I person. I will be in the office Monday.

At this point, the conversation was abruptly ended, she has not responded since this message.

—————————————

It was inevitable that this article would be written. In our current trend of exposing the “justice” system for all the glamorous corruption, it shouldn’t be to hard to conceive that we would begin targeting specific law enforcement agencies. Today, we are going after a small Oklahoma town, Earlsboro Police Department. This department was brought to our attention by a former applicant, denied a job on the basis of a charge, to which they were determined innocent. Upon conducting my own research into this department, it’s not all that surprising that they would had denied the individual’s application upon those grounds. After all, in 2018, the department was so corrupt it had gained state wide attention. Let’s review the Earlsboro Police Department.

History of abuse and corruption

As we have stated, this small town department is riddled with a past of corruption. In 2015, officer Michael Young, who is believed to still be with the department, targeted a freelance journalist. The journalist, associated with the organization “Cop Block,” had been filming the officer’s interaction with another citizen. To see that video, just click this link.  The situation, based upon the video, is rather disturbing.

It shows officer Young parked in front of a residence, lights enabled. Upon leaving, he does a U-turn. When getting to the corner, where the journalist is located, he stops at the stop sign. However, he doesn’t simply drive away. Instead, Young sits at this sign, blocking potential traffic. This goes on for several minutes.  Finally, after blocking the road for several minutes, officer Young decides to engage the journalist. The fact that the officer chose to even engage somebody, filming on a public road, is already questionable. But as we’ve said, this department doesn’t exactly operate with the legal scope.

More controversy hit the department in 2018. The former chief of police, Troy Magers found himself the centerfold of this event. Though this controversy was aimed at the private life of Magers, it spoke loudly for his character. So, we are going to give a quick rundown of the situation.

The former chief had rented a house. Upon leaving the residence, the home owner found it to be a complete wreck. Trash, feces, urine, roaches littered the home, it looked as if a hoarder had been living there. Though there is much debate as to why he was removed, one allegation is it was over sexual harassment claims and abuse of power. Though we haven’t been able to confirm the reasons leading up to his removal, we did find that he has an extensive history of misdemeanors and civil litigations dating back to the 1990’s. This leads us to our current question: If the EPD allowed this man to apart of the department, why did their current Chief of Police, Candie, deny a man who was found to be innocent of his charge?

Allegations against the former Chief of police didn’t just stop at how he destroyed a rental home. We were able to make contact with a man who had lived in the town during this time. According to this contact, the former chief had made a point of targeting a young woman and her children. In fact, the harassment had become so severe that she had allegedly bought a gun to protect her family from the police. Ultimately, after the officer attempted to remove her children, she and her family, was forced to move from their home.

We reached out to the department, in attempt to get answers. However, what we found was that any comment we left was  hastily removed. To ensure our question was seen, and hopefully answered, we left it for them on a Google review (pictured below.) One thing we noticed when looking at their reviews, was their rating. 2.6 out of 5. While it’s not uncommon to see lower scores with any law enforcement agency, this is still remarkably low. Reviews accuse officers of theft  to inaction in a potential life threatening situation.

Because they continue to delete any questions asked by the WoC team, we made our questions in a very public way. Doing it like this also ensures that the department cannot delete it.
The record showing the background of the EPD former police Chief, Troy Magers.

We find it interesting that a man with such a record of misdemeanors and civil suits was qualified to be a chief, but a man who was innocent wasn’t qualified to join the department.  While the department has allegedly pulled the “legalities” card, when we review the history of their previous chief, that is something we find to be rather suspicious. While the department has now become more active within its local community, it doesn’t necessarily excuse it from its past. When policies are being created on the spot, when officers, who still remain with the department, hold a history of abuse and intimidation,  we have more than enough reason to believe that nothing has truly changed.

It is unfathomable to believe that such a small department could be more corrupt than those in bigger cities. While we don’t believe the corruption has stopped, simply changed hands, it does appear that the department has made some drastic changes. While we still can’t confirm officer Young’s employment with this specific agency, we are told by a source that he maybe working for another department.  Allegedly the entire department was wiped clean, alongside Chief Magers. According to sources, this was brought about from accusations of “sexual misconduct.” However, neither the city of Earlsboro, nor it’s police department, will confirm this. One thing that is clear is they are still enforcing a non-existent law. There is no law barring a person employment purely based upon an accusation. After all, accusations happen all the time, it’s the establishment of guilt that matters. Because our journalist does live within the same state as this department, they can rest assure that we are going to be watching them very closely in the days to come.

Injured employee mistreated?

Unless you’re completely out of your mind, the last thing in the world that you would want to do is injure yourself at work. With any sort of injury, there is a loss of income, dealing with legal things that you may not had expected, and the list goes on. This story is brought to...

serial criminal’s victim gets no justice

In a perfect world, the justice system would always triumph, taking the most dangerous and unstable people off the streets. However, because we do not live in a perfect world, victims are often left without any form of justice from their attackers. Our platform has been sitting on this case since 2019, waiting for the for the “okay” to finally write this article. Upon speaking to this victim, whom we will identify as “Jane Doe” for safety reasons, that “okay” finally arrived.  To understand the case we are going to be covering, we first must paint the picture of who her attacker is.

Extensive criminal background

Cade Taylor, an Oklahoma resident, is by no means unknown to the court system. With minor charges, such as speeding tickets, seven protective orders filed, stalking, and assault, Cade has had a rather colorful criminal past. To better understand how this man thinks, we’re going to breakdown some of the cases. In this, we are including public information. This include the case number, dates, and the charge. However, we are withholding the names of his victims. This is due to Cade’s obvious mental instability and willingness to be violent, especially toward women. It is also important to note that while three protection orders were dismissed, five were not. While we won’t be covering every case, we are going to cover enough to give you an idea of how potentially dangerous this man is.

Case: TR-2005-00216

Date:  02/07/2005

This case, in contrast to the rest, is a very simple one. It’s a speeding ticket to which he pled guilty and was fined $188.90. However, this isn’t about speeding tickets. Let’s move onto the next case.

Case: PO-2000-00046

Date: 05/05/2000

This is one of many protective orders filed against Cade. This case, was eventually merged with case: PO 2000-47, which is not shown on the court records site.

Case: PO-2008-00039

Date: 04/03/2008

As before, we have yet another Protection order, as identified with the case number starting with “PO.” This order was filed by one of his alleged victims, a woman who was granted the protection. In this instance, the case cost Cade $169.30. However, as we’re going to learn, he did not learn his lesson.

Case: PO-2009-00183

Date: 12/08/2009

Filed by a different woman, she too had filed an EPO against Cade Taylor. However, for reasons unknown, this order was denied. Case closed.

Though there are still other Protection order filings against Cade, these aren’t the only charges he’s had. A couple of his other charges include domestic abuse-assault and battery and a charge for malicious injury to property-over $1000. However, these aren’t the cases we’re going to be diving into. Now, we dive into the felony.

The criminal charges Cade has faced in the past.

Case: CF-2019-00079

Date: 02/11/2019

This case is one that is truly beyond mind blowing. What started out as a bad night of drinking, for Cade, ended with him abducting a young woman, holding her at knife point, and even going as far as to admitting to police his intention of murdering her. The victim was only able to escape after locking herself into the restroom and dialing 9-1-1. With his  confession and  abduction, began a process that would exceed a year. However, the court was anything but impartial in this. According to those who know Taylor’s family, the presiding judge, Michelle Roper, is actually friends with his parents.

Upon confessing that he intended to murder the young woman, the police decided to  arrest Taylor. With this confession, the local DA’s office began the process of pursuing charges. During the process of the trial, Cade made a point to harass his victim and her family, multiple times. In one confirmed instance, he drove more than 120 miles across the state just to stalk her. Upon learning of this, the police arrested Taylor, but this wouldn’t be the last arrest for behaviors of this nature. With every arrest, came a bond amount, something that his mother was more than happy to pay. Once released, Cade would once again seek out his victim, going as far as to locating her on a popular livestream app and leaving a comment. Our platform has obtained a screenshot of this event, it is posted below.

This comment was confirmed to be from Cade Taylor, a man with a notorious past of abuse, stalking, and so fourth.

By the time the above photograph occurred, for whatever reason the court dropped the Felony down to a misdemeanor. The man, who abducted his stalking victim, made bold statements of his intentions to murder her, just got away with it. Meanwhile, in another questionable move, the court forced the victim to attend counseling.  This ruling was made as a result of the victim having a mental breakdown in court. As a result of this breakdown, Judge Roper questioned the victim’s mental stability. Of course, I can’t help but question Judge Roper’s capability to perform her duties.

On the advice of Cade’s mother, the ultimate conclusion to this case was it being dropped. According to the mother, who has a confirmed history of bailing her son out of legal situations, Cade was simply to unstable to be held accountable. However, his mental capacity remains unconfirmed. In most instances, it is nearly impossible to get escape justice using the “insanity” plea. However, in some twist of magic, Cade has somehow managed to pull that very stunt off only to get “house arrest.” Meanwhile, the victim involved is left looking over her shoulder, not knowing when or where this deranged man may show up. If this case has demonstrated anything, it has only shown that having the right contacts is all it takes to evade the prison system.

Editorial update:

Since the time this article was initially released, it has been brought to our attention that the culprit, Cade Taylor, near the end of the trial, had made threats of not only murdering his initial victim, but her children as well. We stand by our belief that Judge Roper, knowing the culprit’s family, should be placed under investigation. Her inability to remain impartial, even with the evidence staring her in the face, only displays that the victim’s constitutional rights had to an unbias and impartial trial, may had been violated.

 

Is BLM about equality?

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, since its founding, has held firm to the claim that it fights for equality, against police brutality, and various other issues that effect the black community. While tensions between the police and general public have been at an all time high, it has only enhanced the problem created by...

Disabled individuals targeted?

It goes without say that we should all be entitled to medical care. For some people, this form of care means life or death. However, in all the splendor joys that 2020 has already provided us, we are finding that, for many people, medical care is outright being denied. In fact, for specific groups of people, they aren’t even being allowed in the door before being asked to leave the facility. Why? It all boils down to the mask mandate. I understand that many people will disagree with this article. I also understand that I will most likely catch a lot of grief for writing it, however, I simply refuse to sit back and watch as specific groups of disabled people continue to be targeted, denied their basic right to medical. After all, we have already seen other rights be stripped away, we’ll get into that also.

Mask Mandate

First, and foremost, it is important to understand that the mask mandate is that: a mandate. Although many people will try to claim this to be law, it’s not. The difference in a mandate and law comes down to a variety of factors, how it came to be is among them. While state and federal laws get run through every government house known to man, the mandate had never undergone such a process. Basically, this makes it unenforceable by law enforcement, though they are attempting to enforce it anyway. The issue in them enforcing it can be chalked down into what the very definition of their occupation: to uphold and enforce the law.

Initially, the mask mandate was a suggestion. Never intended to be required, the government composed a list of “safety” procedures for people to follow, if they so wished. However, what we ended up seeing completely opposed this initial stance. In a progressively slow measure, this request grew into the mandate. Some of the “safety” guidelines are as follow:

  1. Stay at least six feet apart from one another. Apparently, we are facing the only known virus in history that has a travel distance of six feet.
  2. Wear a mask. This is something we are going to really get into shortly.
  3. Avoid large crowds. Goes back to the whole six feet portion.

Enforcement vs. your rights

In enforcing this potential violation to the constitution, as well as civil liberties, we have seen the outright measures our very own government are willing to take. In the past several months, we have seen churches forced into closing their doors and their ministers arrested upon refusing to do so. If you aren’t well versed in the Constitution yet, let’s just recap, shall we?

Under the first amendment, you have the right to free speech, the press, religion, and so on. In regards to religion, the amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Hence where their idea of enforcement now becomes a problem.

By forcing religious institutions into closing their doors, they directly violated the first amendment. Regardless of the reason as to why this was done, it changes nothing in regards to the result. To take it further, those who refused to cease practicing within their religious institutions, were simply arrested. Never, in the history of the United States, has a minister been arrested for refusing to terminate their religious practices; of course, this is no longer a truthful statement.

Within the mask mandate, there are exemptions that must be noted. It is these exemptions that have lead to this article. The exemptions within themselves aren’t the problem, it’s how businesses treat individuals who are exempted that has become the problem.

  1. pre-existing respiratory conditions.
  2. seizures
  3. sensory disorders, such as those associated with autism.

The above are only a few examples of things that are exempted. Regardless of this, corporations, and even medical facilities, are making blanket policies that force everybody, exempted or not, to wear these masks. Furthermore, for those who are exempted, there doesn’t appear to be any form of help with fighting these illegal policies. So, let’s go ahead and arm our disabled friends with a few pieces of legal information that may be of assistance.

The ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is quickly becoming a critical law to know. Within this law, there are protections that could translate into the enforcement of these corporate policies, as well as the mandate itself though the mandate has exemptions for this very reason. The two titles that we are going to specifically focus on are II and III of the ADA.

Title II

“Title II applies to State and local government entities, and, in subtitle A, protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination on the basis of disability in services, programs, and activities provided by State and local government entities. Title II extends the prohibition on discrimination established by section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 794, to all activities of State and local governments regardless of whether these entities receive Federal financial assistance.”

Title III

Title III focuses on private businesses (also known as public accommodations). All new construction and modifications must be accessible to individuals with disabilities. For existing facilities, barriers to services must be removed if it is readily achievable. Public accommodations include facilities such hotels, restaurants, bars, theaters, grocery stores, hardware stores, dry-cleaners, banks, professional offices of health care providers, lawyers, and accountants, hospitals, private bus or train stations, museums, libraries, zoos, amusement parks, places of education, day care centers, senior citizen centers, homeless shelters, gymnasiums, health spas, bowling alleys, and golf courses to name a few.

To read this in its entirety, please visit this link.

Essentially, these titles prevent corporations, etc. from denying disabled individuals services solely on the grounds of their disabilities. For those who are being denied, as we’ve recently seen, this act will quickly become your best friend in fighting these unjust policies.

The mandate has been met with such controversy that lawsuits are currently ongoing. States such as Ohio, Wisconsin, and Texas are just a few states to mention. Rather or not you are for, or against the mandate, one thing must be clear: For the disabled individuals who cannot wear such devices, life has become a much more difficult challenge than what was ever needed. Rather it requires a revocation, overhaul, or even clarification of the mandate, to resolve the issues that are apparently present, it is, without a doubt, that action must be taken.

Sinclair hires sex offender, denies alleged comments made by him

When taking your children to any store, you expect that location to be a safe place. The concept that a registered sex offender would have such easy access to your children is incomprehensable. For one family, this scenerio became a reality in a very disturbing form. Here’s what we’ve learned thus far.

An Oklahoma family was recently taking an outing to a local lake. On the way, they stopped at a Sinclair convience store, located at: 12606 S McLoud Rd, McLoud, OK 74851. With a parent present, two children, ages 12 and 13 went inside to get drinks and snacks. As per most customer service businesses, the cashier, identified as Michael Vaughn Hilborn, greeted the three individuals. From this point forward, things took a progressively disturbing turn.

For unknown reasons, Michael proceeded to state, “you look like you’re about to go dancing.” If it isn’t obvious, this is a joke that relates to exotic dancing. While the statement put the parent on alert, they initially brushed this off. After all, perhaps Michael just has a poor sense of humor. However, the situation doesn’t end with that “joke.” At this point, the three customers rushed to get their items, the two children had also gotten a pickle, a common food item found in these stores. The situation abruptly turns from creepy to outright disturbing.

As they proceed to purchase the items, Michael picks up the pickles and bags of hot cheetos and proceeds to ask, “who they were for.” Not seeing the unfolding situation, one of the girls replied by telling him, “ours.” It is, at this point, Michael takes the already disturbing situation to the next level. Michael proceeds to ask the girls, “can you get pregnant?” Before moving his hips in a very sexual manner. As he does this, he allegedly begins to say, “whoop, whoop.” The three ultimately left the store and contacted Mcloud police. So, who is Michael?

In the state of Oklahoma, Michael is a lifetime, tier 3, sex offender. Although we found no record of him within the DOC system, we were able to find his registry, which is photographed below. Initially, the police were hesitant about arresting him, as what he stated was in poor taste, but also faced the possibility of no charges as he had not blatently stated anything that was sexual. However, upon discovering his registry, the police did, in fact, take him into custody.

Meanwhile, Sinclair denies the entire event occurred. For those who know the inner operations of this company, this should not come as a surprise. Currently, Sinclair has been uncooperative with the current investigation. However, based on various comments, it appears that the company is protecting him. Multiple comments have mentioned that Michael was working at another Sinclair station, which was located next to a school. If you don’t know, registered sex offenders can’t live near a school, muchless work next door to one.

Only after community pressured Sinclair, was he relocated to the store where this latest event took place. Currently, he is being held at the Pottawatomie County jail, awaiting potential charges. Although Sinclair still adamently denies that event taking place, given their lack of cooperation with the police, it leads me to ask, “if it didn’t happen, why not cooperate?” From what we’ve learn, no safety measures are taken to prevent offenders from being employed. This is highly worrysome as children do frequent these stores. Perhaps, the company should start taking real measures in protecting their customers, especially minors. This sotuation, had a parent not been present, could had taken a much darker route.

The mask mandate: does it violate the ADA?

In email, PM, and amongst our team, this article has been a long time coming. We are going to be discussing the mask mandate and how it has cruely targeted individuals with disabilities. While we are aware that many people will not agree with this article, we believe the mandate to be in violation of the “Americans with disabilities act” (ADA.) While the mandate itself has exemptions, the many corporations who poorly enact this mandate also violate selective portions of it, thus our definition of violating the ADA.

Hollywood casino: Maryland Heights, Missouri

Doing something as mundane as going to a casino shouldn’t turn into a discrimination situation. For one woman, with various medical conditions, it did. Worst yet, she is allegedly not the only individual targeted by unfair, selective and enforcement of the mask mandate. She wrote us saying the following:

I walked into the casino. security stopped me and told me I could not enter without a mask. I handed them my dr. note and they called upstairs. They came back and told them they didn’t care about my Dr note but I had to wear a mask. Which that itself violates the mandate law in st louis. Health conditions are exempted on the mandate.

Wished to remain anonymous

She later informed us, via phone, that a relative of hers was forced to wear a mask. At first it seemed to be an “okay, whatever” sort of situation. She went on to explain that the relative is on an oxygen machine and had difficulty breathing as a result. To this, we requested permission to make mention of that ordeal within this article.

I attempted to contact the casino. I asked one simple question: “how many people have shown your employees doctor notes and was still forced to mask or leave?” The response I got was simply being hung up on, with no further communication. Upon recieving this response, I sent them an email (pictured at the end of this article) and am currently awaiting a reply.

Meanwhile, we were able to find some aspect of their policy. However, it says nothing in regards to disabled people. The policy we have found simply reads:

While the amenities our customers have come to know and love may be somewhat limited for the time being, the ability to safely welcome back our team members and guests remains our top priority. With this in mind, we worked closely with the Missouri Gaming Commission, state and local leaders, and public health officials to finalize comprehensive Phase I reopening protocols and new health and safety precautions. Our returning team members will be trained on these procedures and our guests will see reminder signage about them throughout the property. These new protocols include, but are not limited to, the following:

SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • Capacity on our gaming floor may be limited, but we do not expect this to impact the customer experience.
  • The installation of floor decals and signage to strictly enforce social distancing guidelines will be placed in areas where lines typically form.
  • Table game seating will be limited, and some slot machines will be placed out of service.
  • Live music, entertainment, convention, and banquet services will remain suspended.
  • There will be no large drawings, tournaments, or special events.
  • Restaurant offerings will be limited to Hops House, Hollywood & Grind, Phat Thai, Celebrity Grill, and Charlie Gitto’s.
  • The gift shop, fitness center and valet parking will also be closed.
  • Valet parking will be closed, and the parking area typically used for valet parked cars is available for self-parking. Additional handicap parking spaces will be added to both casino parking areas.
  • The hotel has reopened.

HEALTH & SAFETY

  • Team members and vendors will be required to wear masks and will undergo a health screening each day, including temperature checks, prior to their shift.
  • Based on the ruling by the St. Louis County Health Department, and in order to help reduce the spread of COVID – 19, Hollywood Casino St. Louis will be requiring all persons in public areas will be required to wear a mask covering the face and nose. Patrons may remove masks temporarily while eating or drinking or when asked by casino staff for identification. Guests not adhering to these requirements will be advised of the requirements and warned that if they continue to disregard they will be asked to leave the property.
  • Slots and table games will be thoroughly and regularly cleaned throughout the day.
  • Sanitizer stations will be installed on the casino floor and be readily available throughout the facility.
  • Plexi-glass separators will be installed at the players club, cage, security podiums and other locations.

Loves Travel Plaza

In this day and age even a simple road trip has become problematic. One of the emails recieved regarded the national travel plaza, Loves. As of March 29th, the corporation began enforcing the mask requirements, with no regard to disabled people. While we had gotten an email of one situation, I had already planned to target this company purely based on what I have personally seen, even prior to their mandate. With that, I will now tackle two birds with one stone.

First, let’s review the email sent to us:

Hello,

My name is (redacted) and I want to see if you would write an article about what just happened to me. I was recently on a roadtrip from my home in (redacted) Tennessee, going to New Mexico. On this trip, I stopped at a Loves travel center in Hazen Arkansas. I needed to get fuel among a few other things. I have COPD, the image sent to you is my Dr. statement explaining why I am unable to wear a mask. I brought this into the store with me, just in case. I go into the store and am immediately stopped by an employee. He informs me that I must wear a mask to enter. I explain to him that I can’t wear one and offer to show him the note. He becomes more aggressive, tells me that he doesn’t care about the note. If I will not wear a mask, I must leave the premises. No gas, no food, and no pit stop, I leave. Thankfully, a nearby gas station was more than happy to have my business. I hope to bring exposure to how people like me are being treated, I hope you will help.

Email sent to our platform.

If you aren’t aware, the mask mandate does have exemptions to it. Autism, COPD, and those with various other medical conditions are classified as exempt. These businesses denying these customers entrance not only violates the mask mandate exemptions code, it is also a violation of the ADA, title II. Title II of the ADA reads as follows:

SUMMARY: This final rule revises the regulation of the Department of Justice (Department) that implements title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), relating to nondiscrimination on the basis of disability in  State and local government services. The Department is issuing this final rule in order to adopt enforceable accessibility standards under the ADA that are consistent with the minimum guidelines and requirements issued by the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board), and to update or amend certain provisions of the title II regulation so that they comport with the Department’s legal and practical experiences in enforcing the ADA since 1991. Concurrently with the publication of this final rule for title II, the Department is publishing a final rule amending its ADA title III regulation, which covers nondiscrimination on the basis of disability by public accommodations and in commercial facilities. 

 Citation: https://www.ada.gov/regs2010/titleII_2010/titleII_2010_regulations.htm

What Title II is essentially saying is this: a business cannot treat a person differently simply because they have a disability. Regardless of this law, that is what we are seeing. Under the illusion of “protecting the public,” people with disabilities and medical conditions are being barred from various locations. While public safety is a concern, it is alarming that certain people can’t even go shopping without being forced to violate doctor orders. At this point, it no longer appears to be a matter of public safety, but a situation of compliance.

Addressing the Sarah situation

Editorial update

Since the time of the initial release, Sarah did a 180 on the platform. As we defended her image, she chose to leave the platform, citing mental health. While she gave us this reason, she was publically defacing “War on Corruption” via Twitter. She made false allegations of doxing, only to later do the very deed she scorned the platform for. What we released was a Facebook profile, public information. Upon confronting Sarah, she began deleting her tweets, and eventually her account.

Recently, our other journalist has found herself in what can only be classified as a campaign to ruin her image-a smear campaign, if you will. While this campaign is known on Twitter, it actually began with a message to another member of our team on Facebook. While we do not typically get involved with drama, this os one of our own who is being maliciously targeted and slandered.

This gallery’s purpose is to not only assist in the building of a potential case but to document the harassment that one of our own is enduring at the hands of malicious individuals.

Update

Our platform is currently falsely being accused of doxing. This stems from me showing a public Facebook profile. The first claim was I doxxed his profile. When that failed, it turned to me doxing his work location. When that failed, it turned to me doxxing the guy’s lastname. Though the story keeps changing, the fact that none of these are a dox, doesn’t. What is being ignored is the fact that this guy had made a series of posts, harassing a young woman. Within his posts, his followers harassed her and attacked her for various reasons. Somehow, while the false narrative has been created, all of this information has been so kindly ignored. Reciepts below.

A reply to the below image, making fun of a disability regarding how the woman speaks.
One of many posts intended to harass the woman.
In a series of tweets, this individual had not only harassed this woman but allowed others to do so.
Yet another harassing tweet.

The above images are what prompted me to become involve and take a stand. Even now, this information is willfully being withheld at the expense of slandering our platform. We will always stand against bullies, especially when they target a person for their disabilities. For that, I stand by my actions which lead to the removal of the harrassing tweets. Though I could have conducted myself better, without the emotion, this is something that I am very firmly against. I will not apologize for standing up against this.

Days before the campaign began on Twitter, one of our other guys recieved this PM via Facebook. Immediately, it was sent to me and documented. Resulting from this, our guy unfriended this woman, wanting no part of whatever drama was about to unfold.

A tweet made by an individual, who is to remain anonymous. I would later make a reference to this specific post, which would then purposefully reworded by one of the individuals involved with the campaign.

Making a reference to the previous image, I clearly state, “I CAN SAY you gaslit…” This would later translate to the below image.

The willful mistranslation goes from “I can say” to me suddenly thinking this individual gaslit somebody. There’s just one problem, the phrase “I can say” means something different than what is being projected here let’s continue.

In yet another willful attempt to alter what I said, this individual states that I had wanted everybody to know the truth, as she released private messages. So, what did I say?

I clearly state that I would obtain the chat logs from my other journalist. This was to ensure that privacy was maintained while allowing me a glimpse into why this situation began. At thus point, it’s border-lining a liable slander situation.

This seems to be the message that started the situation. A woman, by the name of Mia, had physically mailed Youtuber, “Repzion” a disturbing letter. Our journalist was caught in a moral situation: remain loyal to her, at the time, friend, or does she inform this Youtuber who sent the letter? After about a week, she decided to send the email. During the email exchange, she apologized, which she should not have done. I say this because she is not accountable for the actions of another. However, the email somehow created an entire campaign of “brain deprived” individuals to begin harassing her.

Even now, the campaign has gone as far as to slam her for some images she once posted. Mocking her for rather childish things, these “adults” have made it their goal to run our other journalist off, something that I will not allow to be done.

Above, is just one example of how petty this childish campaign has gotten. Below, are the email exchanges between our journalist and the Youtuber.

Additional details

Full message prior to a private discussion being released.

This image was posted in attempt to prove our journalist spread false information…

This was/is my rebuttal to the “false information” claim.

Ultimately, I encouraged our other journalist to block the primary indivoduals involved, prior to doing so myself. While this has not stopped their childish games, this gallery will stand as a testament to how we will defend our team against obnoxious and malicious campaigns such as this.

Oklahoma mechanic threatens former customer

When you hire somebody to do a job, it goes to say that you hold the expectation that it will be done correctly. But, when that job ends up being a complete flop, they should expect a bad review online. For mechanic, Jonathan Barden, of “JR automotive,” that was exactly what happened.

The post that initiated the threat reads as follows:

Warning!! DO NOT use this mechanic if you want to keep your car running!! Jonathan Barden.
Apologize it’s so long.
This was his 2nd job hired to do for me, and only hired a 2nd time because it should of been an easy fix, all I needed was a Cam Shaft Sensor, he was hired Monday, pulled 2 codes for a cam shaft sensor and that was my only issue, my car was turning over but not starting and had absolutely no leaks. He gets the sensor new from AutoZone that night, he yanks my old sensor out so hard the small silver cap on the end stayed inside, he took my passenger side engine apart to get to it, including my timing chain cover, he then dropped the cap in my oil pan, dropped my oil pan to get the cap and drained my oil. Had me buy 6 qts of oil, even though the cap would of never been stuck if he had removed the correct parts to have enough room instead of removing my timing chain cover to expose my oil pan in the 1st place. Took my engine apart until 3:30 in the morning, left everything torn apart and trashed and didn’t show back up until Wednesday evening at 6 p.m.. There were bolts in every single wrong spot and some not even put in. He got frustrated after not being able to put the serpentine belt back on Wednesday night and quit. He claims he pointed out to my husband that the timing cover had a “hole” when he took it apart, no he didn’t. And its not a hole its a huge crack and if the crack was present prior to his work then oil leak would have been my problem, my oil and engine were great I only needed a dang cam shaft sensor and now my car isn’t drivable until I get a new timing cover because I can’t hold oil. He put the 5 qts in and left 1 sitting outside and never told me the 5 qts leaked out, the oil spills out immediately when you pour it in, he finished putting the 5 qts in around 9 but was here until 2 a.m. on Wednesday! He spent 5 hours trying to hide the crack and seal it. He was very hostile and irate, he screamed and cussed for hours, “fk this job, I’m about to walk off this fking job, Don’t ever fking call me again, and much more. These are words for words. At this point we just wanted him and his wife to leave and not touch our car anymore. It didn’t help that he would talk to his wife the same way when he couldn’t get something to fit or he dropped a wrench he’d scream and cuss at her also. We paid $45 for the diagnostic, $111 for our part new from AutoZone (never given a receipt.), $5 gas to get the part, $41 for oil and $5 gas to get the oil, and $200 for the work. He quoted $250 but since he refused to finish the belt and mounts that night and we didn’t want them back at our home we paid $200 minus the unfinished work, if we known the damage caused and oil wasted we wouldn’t of paid a dime! Next morning me and my husband get the belt on and get less than half a mile down the road to discover we have not a drop of oil and when we put 1 qt in it immediately flowed out, hired next mechanic and he immediately found the crack in the timing cover. Never had a oil leak before now, I just want some ownership of responsibility and atleast partial refund. He supposedly warranties his work with new parts but didn’t even want to finish the job. I’m out $286 to have my car worse than it was to start. Down to using his customers phone to call his wife about taking to long at McDonalds and calling her a “dumb fking whe fk you” and a few more things of that nature. He’ll destroy your car and trash your property (I had to clean up after him and his wife way more than tolerable.) In the text he only keeps saying “I told you it had a hole”, “I pointed this out” . No he didn’t, not once, but the fact remains if the crack existed prior to him we would have already had a oil leak, but now there’s a crack large enough to hold no oil and somehow that was suppose to already be there? Just accept facts and own up to your work and make this right!!! (Last screenshots, apparently its not his 1st time to leave a car torn apart and doesn’t finish.)

While most businesses, or self employed individuals, take it with grace, Jonathan decided to go a different route with it. Threatening the reviewer, he demands the Facebook post to be taken down, while threatening to have somebody show up at the poster’s home. While the business owner doesn’t specify bodily harm, given the nature of the overall message, it is strongly implied.

Upon sharing the threat, many people commented, encouraging the poster to take it to the police; it is unknown if this has happened. However, the poster had made it clear, in a response to the threat, that she intended to seek litigations against the man.

The threat sent to a former customer regarding a Facebook post.
