a little bit of everything

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -- Plato

All in the name of who?!

I'm speechless!

I just read this on South Coast Journal.


Via Crooks and Liars: After admitting that he and a co-worker punished eighteen pre-teen boys by making them lay down on their beds and shoving a broom stick into their backsides, 19-year old camp counselor Clifton Bennett will avoid doing any prison time.

It seems his father, Arizona State Senator Ken Bennett (Republican of Prescott), wrote a letter to the Yavapai County District Attorney handling the case informing her that his son could not rightfully serve time in jail, as he is preparing to leave the country to teach the word of Christ to youth around the world.

And the D.A. went for it. "This is hardly the work of sexual predators. Rather, it is the work of two young men repeatedly making poor decisions." She said in a written statement.

Wow. The party of family values, indeed.

Outraged? Call the Senator's district office (602-542-5584) and/or the Yavapai County Attorney's office(928-771-3344).*


I am not a religious person, but I'm pretty sure Christ, or any other higher power, would frown upon people using his name to get out of such heinous acts. Senator Bennett and the District attorney should be ashamed of themselves for using both religion and their power as a shield from the law!


*If you choose to contact either office try to be as civil as possible. While it may be difficult it will make your statement much stronger.
