Ephesians 6:10-12 (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
I’ve been absent for awhile. Seeing how we can fight our own battle with these Net Nanny stings, reaching out to others and working on our own appeal. The stings unfairness, their mass incarceration of individuals; it has been a long and unending battle. The Pleas and Trials continue but there are more trials going on that are ending in mistrials or hung juries. Check out this Net Nanny Jefferson County case for example. The lawyer was allowed to argue for his client using the entrapment argument and essentially wins. He will be retried or, perhaps, he will be offered a good plea or his case will be dismissed. I’ve seen more cases like this. I’ve also seen some new pleas with allowance of 2nd degree Assault but with sexual motivation rider (24 month extension). These cases are getting a little harder to prosecute as time goes on–for those in prison (100+) or have served some time as a result of this perhaps the days, weeks, months ahead we will receive some potential good news.
There are some big appeal cases ahead which can begin to set precedence. A lot more potential trials too. And with time, a news article or more will break open what is going on. The end game on all of this is to expose the outrageousness of it all. What is the purpose of sending so many to prison whom shouldn’t be there. Why are our laws written to allow this kind of abuse by the police and prosecutors? Why don’t they go after real criminals and offenders rather than fish for potential criminals and induce them to commit crimes?
If we stand together we can stop this injustice.
With prayers and hope for better results,
