Rodger Shuler says he will remain in jail "indefinitely"

 By David J. Krajicek for WhoWhatWhy
Columbiana, Alabama—In his first interview since he was jailed last month for contempt of court, Alabama journalist Roger Shuler said he will stay behind bars indefinitely rather than comply with a judge’s “unlawful” order to scrub his blog of scandalous stories he posted about a powerful Alabama politician’s son.

 “Free press, free speech, the First Amendment—none of this means anything to these people,” Shuler said. “I don’t see any reason I should remove the material. Is a person obliged to take an action based on a judge’s unlawful order?”

Move along, nothing to see here...

SI.com which first reported  Georgia Tech fans wear racist costumes vs. Alabama A&M (Photo)   said they"fumbled" and "there doesn't look like there is anything here" because evidently some (not to be confused with all) Georgia Tech football fans have been dressing up in banana and monkey suits for every Georgia game since 2011.    Oh, OK.

Per Brian: And it's not only SI that pulled their story. WSB-tv in Atlanta pulled their story. The Sporting News edited their story to point on that the SI writer had his story wrong. Only Black Sports Inline still has the story up.  I wonder why?  

Psst Brian!  Sporting News.com still has the story up. So does Yard Barker


Out of sight out of mind.... I don't know what saddens me more, the fact the white, male dominated, media pulled the story, or, that they think there is nothing to see, hear, or talk about here.

There is the sentiment among some (not to be confused with all) that racism will die when the old racist die.

 There is also the sentiment among some (not to be confused with all), that if black folks would stop acting like thugs and be more like white folks they are more likely to be accepted (for lack of a better word) by white folks.

There is the sentiment among some (not to be confused with all) that America is post racial because some whites (not to be confused with all) voted for Barack Obama....twice.

Well, all you have to do is look at the picture above , and view this YouTube video of the University of Mississippi Students "Riot" over the reelection of President Obama to know that racism is alive and well, breeding a new generation of haters.

"I want them to see what they've done" Jacqueline Kennedy

H/T Go Left
I was in the second grade on 11.22.1963 when the principal  announced over the intercom  President Kennedy had been shot. I didn't find out he died until I got home. The days that followed were very sad, I remember feeling sorry for Carolyn, John John, and Jackie Kennedy. I also remember feeling scared for the leaders who tried to help African Americans.  Sure enough, then came the assassinations of Martin Luther King,Jr, and Robert Kennedy Jr

My ancestors lived through 400 years of torture/slavery,  my generation lived through domestic terrorism/Jim Crow,  my children are living through Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Jordan Russell Davis, Renisha McBride and other victims of senseless  violence.
In June 1963, President Kennedy promoted civil rights as the governor of Alabama blocked integration of the University of Alabama.
“Today, we are committed to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free,” the president said in a speech. “And when Americans are sent to Vietnam or West Berlin, we do not ask for whites only.”
 Will we ever live in the land of liberty and justice for all, or is it just a slogan?  Time will tell the truth.

"In the words of NWA, F**k the Police"~ Update

 


WAS 14-YEAR-OLD Joseph Williams "brutally tortured" by Bucks County cops, as his mother alleges. Or did the ninth-grader take a nasty spill on his face when he was shot with a stun gun while fleeing police?

The Internet wants to know.
 The police are suppose "to protect and serve." Sadly, that slogan does not reflect our experience with the police. Far too often, the police harass, humiliate, beat, shoot and kill innocent black people. Shooting at van full of children over a freaking speeding ticket? Making black people sing and act like chimps? Really?

Hide the women and the children, George is free.


This was a rough day for Sean Hannity's friend, George Zimmerman.
"It was a Tuesday to forget for George Zimmerman after he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend, kicked out of her house, and served with divorce papers — all in the same day.
The only consolation for Zimmerman is that a Florida judge allowed the notorious former neighborhood watchman to be freed on $9,000 bail, although he was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet.

Fighting against the forces of evil and tyranny does not come cheaply, but the donations that have come to us via the blog's PayPal donation button have made that fight much more feasible. Hopefully, this will help enable the release of Roger Shuler from Alabama's own little "Gitmo" soon. As well as, fighting the ruthless, powerful and obscenely corrupt thugs who orchestrated this entire travesty and finally holding them accountable for what they have done.

It's the Media, they think we are Stupid. Monday Edition

With all the media "outrage" over a blotched website, I'm wondering where is the media outrage for the millions of people being denied Medicaid in the Red Republican Confederate Slave States of America?  I guess it's easier to help the republicans de-fund, delay, and repeal the Affordable Health Care Act by people who have access to quality, affordable, health care than it is to focus on  people who finally have access to quality, affordable health care.

We certainly can't look to the Democratic Party to exhibit any political courage. Nope, Democrats (and I use that term loosely) care more about keeping their jobs than doing their jobs. But here's the rub, republicans have figured out that hating Obama Care is not the way to win elections.

The Legal Lynching of The Legal Schnauzer will not be Televised.  What do you want to bet if this were a right wing, conservative blogger, who wrote about President Obama being a Kenyan born Muslim Socialist Interloper there would be wall to wall, 24/7 poutrage?
This is Carol, Roger's wife. On Friday, we provided a brief update on the Nov. 14 hearing on "permanent injunctions" in the Legal Schnauzer first amendment case. And not surprisingly, it was indeed a kangaroo court, though possibly even worse than we had anticipated. We reported that Shelby County Courthouse officials turned away the majority of the people who attempted to appear at the mysterious and strange proceedings by claiming it was closed to the public. However, some supporters were able to gain access to the previously undisclosed location.
Here we go again....... the white, male, dominated, mainstream, media trying to justify the use of the N word by white people.  Attention White People.....go see the movie 12 Years a Slave for a clear understanding of why YOU CAN NOT USE THE N WORD EVER.
“White America don’t get to dictate how me and (Shaquille O’Neal) talk to each other and they have been trying to infiltrate themselves saying, ‘Well you guys use it, it’s in rap music.’ No, that’s not the same,” Barkley said. “As I tell my white friends who I love like brothers … they’ve asked me, When is it appropriate? I say well when you use it around the wrong brother the next thing you’re going to hear is the clock side to your d**n head. That’s when it’s inappropriate.”

RedEye's InJustice Week in Review


In a blogosphere where a conservative can pretend that he has been mistreated by police or mischievous "lefty bloggers" and raise a ton of money overnight, the left wing blogosphere just became aware of Shuler's arrest and apparent mistreatment by Alabama police Friday morning, more than a full day after Shuler was dragged from his home and thrown into a police car.

"This could happen to you."

Legal Schnauzer: Legal Schnauzer First Amendment Case Featured in a Special Report on CBS Channel 42 News
 This is Carol, Roger's wife. CBS Channel 42 News, a local television news station serving the Birmingham Metro area, highlighted the Legal Schnauzer first amendment case in a special report featured during their 6 p.m. broadcast Nov. 12. The video segment was more than 4 minutes in length and is currently posted on the news station's website entitled "Jailed Blogger in Court" by Mike McClanahan.
Are Media MIA in Bloggers's Beating Arrest?
News coverage continued this week in erratic fashion regarding the Oct. 23 arrest and continued jailing of Alabama political commentator Roger Shuler, a longtime journalist and muckraking blogger.
A few news outlets covered as an important story Shuler's ongoing jailing without bond on contempt of court charges. A few others provided brief reports. Most simply ignored the jailing of a journalist for violating court orders that themselves appear to violate decades of clear-cut constitutional law banning prior restraint of the media from reporting.

Veteran's Day Witnesses War on Freedom and the Constitution

This Veterans Day remember, on average, at least 22 Vets commit suicide daily. America doesn’t do enough for our returning Vets and it’s not getting better. That is wrong on every level. And it disgusts me. The VA report can color it however they want…it’s still wrong that more Vets die by their own hand than in Afghanistan. They are the invisible casualties of war.

Legal Schnauzer: Bleak Veteran's Day Witnesses War on Constitution in Legal Schnauzer First Amendment Case: There is a war being waged on the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights by the rich, powerful, well-connected and corrupt. And the travesty involved in the Legal Schnauzer first amendment case is on the front lines of that war. Police brutality, prior restraint, unlawful search and seizure, police harassment, denial of due process, false arrest and malicious prosecution, as well as, suppression of free speech and freedom of the press--our civil liberties are currently under assault.

 Justice for Renisha McBride! Justice for Trayvon Martin! Justice for Jonathan Ferrell! Justice for Jordan Davis! We must end all forms of racial profiling and racial violence. We must repeal Stand Your Ground laws. 

 Why MORE Black People Need to say F^*k THE POLICE We want the police to quit STOPPING and FRISKING us at every single turn just because of the melanin in our skin, and prosecuting us at rates unseen in other communities.

Seriously. This is not fair.
We want the police to stop using citizens to feed America’s prison industrial complex, and actually help us build and patrol our less advantaged communities without making us all culprits.

Freedom isn't Free in AmeriBama

 
Fellow blogger Rodger Shuler, aka Legal Schnauzer, is still behind bars in the Shelby County, Alabama jail for being the kind of journalist we wish we had, instead of the kind of journalist we have.  But then again, seeing how being the kind of journalist we wish had lands them in jail, we can understand why we have the kind of journalist we have.  According to Rodgers wife Carol lots of organizations are stepping up to help so hopefully we will see and hear from Rodger Shuler again, but then again this is AmeriBama.

A glaring example of the kind of "journalist" we have in Alabama. We must dare to defend Rodger Shuler's rights, too.

Roger Shuler might be a wingnut conspiracy theorist and a crackpot. He might unfairly besmirch conservative Alabama politicians with little or no evidence to back up outlandish accusations.
But he is certainly an American. As such, he certainly has a constitutional right to free speech, and that right certainly has been trampled by a judge in an Alabama circuit court.
It is hard to feel sorry for Shuler: Earlier this year, he began writing about Rob Riley on his political blog Legal Schnauzer, accusing the attorney of scandalous behavior in his personal life. Riley, son of former Gov. Bob Riley, sued Shuler, asking a Shelby County judge for an injunction to stop Shuler from making such attacks. Shuler failed to show up for the hearing, then ignored a judge's order to make a court appearance. He even threw the court's papers out of his car window as he cursed the officers who were trying to serve them.
That's when Judge Claud Neilson lowered the boom. He ordered Shuler to remove the offending articles about Riley from the website, and forbade Shuler from writing anything further about Riley. Shuler ignored both orders, and wound up being arrested at his Shelby County home Oct. 23 for contempt of court and resisting arrest.
Shuler deserves to be punished for contempt of court.
See what I mean?  The writer had to make it about Rodger Shuler the person, and assassinate his character before he sorta kinda defended his rights. I'm going to admit as one of them there liberal bloggers in the land of darkness, I mean Dixie, I'm kind of afraid to write on this subject, and I'm kinda afraid not to write on this subject.  I know that for the grace of God go I, but what the hell, if you don't stand for something you will fall for anything, and, in the end we will not remember the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.

Despite the picture painted by some Alabama journalist, Rodger Shuler is not a bomb throwing, wingnut conspiracy theorist. If he were, he wouldn't be in jail IMHO. All you have to do is read his blog to realize he's smart and courageous.  But this isn't about Rodger Shuler, the person, it's about Rodger Shuler the American.

When you look for Roger Shuler on the state court database, Alacourt, the search results return several cases, but none of them is the defamation lawsuit in which the Shelby County blogger is being jailed for contempt of court.
If you know the case number, you can type it in, but that only yields a white screen, blank but for four words in big red letters.
"This case in confidential," it says.
As a result, basic information about the lawsuit, such as the parties involved, hearing dates and the status of the defendant are hidden from public view.
According to Marshall, sealing an entire case is rare and usually happens in cases involving minors. But in this instance, it essentially creates a secret court in Shelby County, he said.
"There is a secret docket," he said. "That is not common in American courts."
Hope for Liberty said it best:
 Shular didn't just blow off the court hearing and he wasn't evading service, he just wanted it done right IAW the law. He filed an objection to improper service which requires the judge to rule before he can take jurisdiction and set a hearing. Shular was waiting for this ruling, but instead the judge throws him in jail.

You can't be held for libel and slander when making statements against a public person. Good grief, how many people would be thrown in jail for making slanderous statements about Democrats or Republicans.

This whole case is about the violation of law by judicial officials and the power of the elite in this State.

Like Shular or hate him, you had better stand up for him, because you could be next. FYI, he was the 2nd person in October to be arrested for taking on the AL elite . Welcome to Naziland!
This is something to think about when we send our sons and daughters to fight for freedom on foreign shores.

I am for truth no matter who tells it. I'm for justice no matter who it's for, or against~ Malcolm X

What's that you say?  President Obama hates the Congressional Black Caucus just as much as he hates the Tea Party?  I'm shocked Shocked I tell you.   Not.

The mainstream media and the Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads are calling President Obama a liar and making him apologize because he said he had proof of tons and tons of WMD in Iraq and Saddam was about to use them on us.

If you are a black person in America  and you happen to find yourself in danger, do not go to a random white person for help. Especially if you have to go to their home. You are better off taking your chances with the elements.  It is open season on black people in America.

We address why Shuler was allegedly beaten then arrested and jailed
Roger Shuler is a journalist who worked for a daily newspaper for years and most recently has been blogging at legalschnauzer. He was recently jailed and not given a trial date or any other indication that he’ll be released any time soon. Alabama journalist Andrew Kreig spoke to me on radio Thursday night about the case.

 ACLU Steps in to defend Rodger Shuler
Legal Schnauzer blogger Rodger Shuler, who has been (pardon the pun) doggedly documenting allegations  of corruption among Alabama’s Republican elite, was beaten and arrested by a gang of Shelby County, Alabama sheriff’s deputies on October 23rd for refusing a court order that Shuler claimed (and persuasively demonstrated) was illegally served and unconstitutional. He has been held without bond on two charges that reek of “trumped up to punish someone challenging the powerful.” This morning, we learn that the whistle blowing blogger has had an ally on board since late last week – the American Civil Liberties Union:
Alabama Deputies Beat, Arrest Corruption-Fighting Reporter
Update Nov. 4: As of this writing, Shuler remained in jail, and his wife was barricaded in their home, fearing that knocks on the door might be authorities trying to arrest her for her husband's writing and refusal to remove it from his website. Few mainstream media covered the story.
