Bayid, bayid problems rat chere in River City!


According to the Citrus County (FL) Chronicle (7-11-2012) 51 year old Alan Yermal, a senior warden and treasurer of St. Christopher's Anglican Church in Crystal River, Florida, was detected by the church's then-pastor, Frank Gough, to have stored images of child pornography on a USB thumb drive in a desk drawer used by Yermal at the church. Gough turned the drive over to the sheriff's office. .


After initially denying any knowledge of the drive, Yermal admitted his ownership and his penchant for going to a Russian website where "members freely shared images of child rape and other acts." (The quotes are the Chronicle's) Further, "investigators developed a theme for his proclivities including an apparent fondness for images of boys and teens in diapers."


Not good, Alan, not good. I, and I would submit members of your congregation also, are no doubt relieved that your behavior was discovered and exposed to the congregation and indeed to the community. We're going to keep a careful eye on you, warn our kids to beware, and even somehow try to alert the greater community of your "penchant." And despite your having not been charged with any crime toward individuals, I wouldn't invite you to my family's dinner table, and could very well give you a cold stare if we chanced to walk the same aisle in Publix during my weekly grocery shopping.


Not good, Alan, not good. But -- after he "spent the past 32 days in jail praying for grace and mercy," Yermal was arraigned before Judge Ric Howard in Inverness to face charges of possession of foreign porn, found guilty and sentenced to 18 years in the slammer. This is the very same Judge Ric Howard who -- if memory serves correctly -- sentenced a 16 year old to 10 years in the slammer for stealing a six-pack from a neighbor's garage.


Thus far I've not seen nor heard any criticism or comment from my community where all this took place.


My questions of you are: Do you approve of this judicial action? Further, is this an example of judicial action to be endorsed or opposed going forward in our community? And finally, is this "justice" generally what we should accept and expect of America's justice system, and if not, what do you recommend be done to change it? .

I sincerely invite your response, as I myself am driven beyond comprehensibility as a base for formulating further perspective.

Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
