Toledo, Ohio beware: should you publicly voice your opposition to the war in Iraq, voice your support for universal health care, or dare to criticize former Lucas County (Ohio) Republican Party chairman turned federal inmate, Tom Noe, you could be hearing from Michael Edward Coon, the 52-year-old white, Christian owner of Holland Benefits Group.

I have a legal question. What happens when you are on "community control"? Does that mean you can't go anywhere? do you wear an ankle bracelet? drug testing? Any help would be appreciated as I want real world answers for use on air.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Community Control is court talk for probation. You don't wear an ankle bracelet; that is called under house arrest. If you want to leave the county and/or state, you have to get permission first. Depending on the crime, there is usually a "drop test" required (pee in a cup) for drug or alcohol testing. Some people try to "fool" the test for grass or alcohol by ingesting large quantities of something that confuses the test. Usually a bad test counts as a positive; or they will give you a more intensive test. Different things take different times to get out of our system. But some places test your hair which can't lie. Coke stays only about 3 days, where speed can still show up for 30 days. I think grass will show up for 7 days, but alcohol only 3 days.

But in Toledo, Ohio all of this is a joke unless one of the local halfway houses is handling you, but that's not community control. Community Control persons have to report to a "parole officer" weekly or monthly, but don't live in a "house". It's a joke. I have to be real careful what I say because I don't want to be targeted, but when I tried to "drop a dime" on an obvious parole violator, the probation officer treated me like the criminal. And when you hear a judge sentence someone to community control with some payback to the victim, the monetary payback rarely happens. There is no way to enforce the court order.

Like I said, the justice system in Toledo is a joke.

Here's my favorite story that'll probably get me in trouble, but it's all verifiable true. I was robbed. I filed a police report. The criminal contacted me and wanted money to get some of my stuff back. For reasons I won't go into, I did have someone meet with him to get my credit cards back for safety. I also learned the criminal's address. I went to the Toledo Police website and filed a complaint. The very next morning, the detective on the case called me and ripped me a new one. She said I didn't have to contact her boss and she was too busy catching real criminals like murders (her exact words) to bother with a lousy burglary case. Four days later a dead body was found and the criminal she wouldn't arrest was deemed responsible. The name and address of the criminal I had provided her was correct, but he went into hiding by then. The homicide squad asked me to set up a sting since this guy kept calling me for more money. Anyway, I got a phone call where this guy was and he was arrested. Then I got summoned to testify before the grand jury as they wanted to hold him on my case to give them time for the murder charge. They then dropped the burglary charges and charged him with murder. The Lucas County Prosecutor's Office negotiated the charges down and he went to prison. A month before he got out he sent a letter to the address he got off court forms, my address, and said if it wasn't for me testifying before the grand jury, he would not be in prison. Then he stated when he got out, he was coming back to Toledo go close up some lose ends. I had moved and have not heard from him (fingers crossed and living with a kick-ass home alarm system).

And for some freaky reason, I have more. The Toledo justice system is a joke.

Well there, NMFR, you missed your golden opportunity. You should have arranged a meet with the guy in some secluded area, then shot him dead in self defense and left the body for the crows. Another dead mutt in "Mutt Town"... case closed.

Toledoans seem to forget that regardless if the so-called justice system works for you or not, you always have a doubly-guaranteed constitutional right* to resort to keeping and bearing arms for your personal defense. So, let some guy come at you... in his overconfidence, you can then kill him and get clean away with it. Remember: It's 100% legal to use lethal force to defend yourself. Don't let some asshole of a lawyer, judge or even a jury tell you any different. All self defense implies lethal action, since any use of force against a person takes that risk of harm.

* The U.S. Constitution, and Ohio's constitution. Both outline that your ability to keep and bear arms can not be infringed.

I don't currently own a gun, but I have every intention of buying one after I take a training course. And I know it's not reasonable that our government could fall, and a list would tell whomever where the gun-owners are, but I also never expected the U.S.S.R. to fold in my lifetime.

But aren't we smart enough to come up with a sensible gun law so less people get killed? So far all we do is argue, but never get anywhere.

If your aim in gun law is to have less people killed, then you've already failed to understand the problem.

The aim in gun law is to make responsible people safe. If that requires more dead thugs, then so be it. That's the zeitgeist.

But aren't you smart enough to govern yourself without more laws taking away the very right that you want now, i.e "I have every intention of buying one".

I had forgotten all about the company known as Holland Benefits Group so I looked up Holland Benefits Group on the internet and oddly enough the Holland Benefits Group has as it's second google listing an old Swamp Bubbles story about the Holland Benefits Group and a letter I got from a guy who worked there. Weird. Here's the link from the original story about the Holland Benefits Group, I still haven't heard back from the manager, her must still be Jamaica I guess.

I've been on Facebook a lot recently for the station and notice when people don't have a lot of "friends". This guy doesn't seem to have any, maybe you guys could friend him when you get a minute https://www.facebook.com/hamish.bond.33 He sounds a lot like a poster on here, and even gives a shout out to SensorG

Graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1972. Don't know if it's the same guy.

That is so weird. I got this e mail today from a Hamish Bond Let Fred , know that it is a 99.99% probability...that sensor, senorG, SensorG, is D***** . G****
His favorite blogs are ToledoTalk, Swampbubbles, and Glasscityjungle.
I have a life long friend who works at The Anderson's, and agrees with me on that.
Contractors, who have done work for him are clients of mine and also agree.
He's an IT weenie, and his Twitter account, facebook account, and others easily verifies that premise. The language is the same.

D***G-has defamed Michael E. Coon, on the 3 sights above, on Twitter, and on facebook.

Mr. Coon's, litigators at Eastman-Smith, , will be bring a MASSIVE Defamation Suit against him in a very short while.

F.Y.I.

Thanks for sending this along Hamish, and I like your email address of countyroad4@yah**.com

Hamish Bond sounds like a fag.

I bet he can't get his dick up. Lock your kids up that sounds like a pedophiles name.

You claim you are in the military. God help us if the rest of our military personal are like you.

Another reason to bring back the draft and raise the quality of our armed forces.

You do realize Hammish Bond is another pseudonym for Mike Coon aka Tater right.

Mike has harassed several on here when people say things he doesn't like. He sends threatening letters and phone calls. Because I take precautions to ensure my personal information doesn't get posted he can't harass me. When I post like that I am trying to provoke and frustrate him so much that he leaves. This is not the first time I have done it to him.

It's sad that you are not smart enough to put two and two together.

Sensorg spends a lot of energy finding out (and posting) the identities of blog posters--so outing him is sweet justice!

If indeed Sensorg works at The Andersons, I wonder what the Anderson family would think of an employee who describes himself on Twitter as an "Unapologetic progressive liberal"? Maybe I'll ask Dick Anderson next time I see him at church.

Fred: If Sensorg starts to spew his blow-hard malarkey, please feel free to fill-in additional letters of his name.

I wouldn't do that to SensorG or any poster on here unless they release it themselves. It's not my place to "out" anyone. Why would you bring Dick Anderson into this? What's the purpose of that exactly? I also wouldn't consider posting all the court stuff out there about "hamish bond" for the same reasons.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

I too would not reveal the names of commenters who choose to remain anonymous.However, I have a different set of rules for commenters like Sensorg who chose to publicize the name of someone on ToledoTalk and led a personal and what I perceived to be a vicious attack on that person (who I never saw comment on the site again--mission accomplished for Sensorg). Turnabout is fair play for him.

If indeed he works at The Andersons, that would be a nugget of information that might be helpful in giving him a taste of his own medicine.

Nothing on the Internet is private and you never know who is reading these posts. "Outing" an anonymous poster might sound good and be deserved, but it may also have very bad unintended consequences.

Isn't that sorta like following the Geneva Convention because we have to set limits sometimes?

I've gotta interject here.

I've crossed swords with SensorG on occasion, and there's some acrimony there. But he doesn't actually descend into particularly sophomoric behavior. Yeah, he defends Liberalism in all its stupid glory, but his behavior isn't on the level of this Tater fellow.

So give him a break and move on. We true fiscal conservatives have real fish to fry. SensorG is more in the minnow category. He's good as bait for the bigger fish.

Then you haven't been paying close attention.

"Whoever" with that moniker (& at least 1 or 2 others on this board).... recently attempted to project onto others his own violent thoughts & inclinations. He pretends to think that, say, Martin Luther King, for one, should have followed a path of violence as opposed to non-violence, because SensorA said that HE (SensorA) believes that if you really believe in something, you should commit violent acts to prove it. A couple weeks later, the Boston brothers did exactly that.

Whoever this creep is, he should have been banned from this site. Trying for fairnes is one thing, but I fail to understand why anyone paying for a website, allows low-lifes to trash that website.

Violence is senseless, but we must not forget this country was founded using violence and had a very violent civil war less than one hundred years later.

Hamish had been giving colorful comments to my online newspaper comments that ultimately are deleted by the site monitors. Also had the same problem about a month ago with one of Fred's kooky Facebook friends last name Adams. Use to have problems with Coon whenever I wrote a letter to the Blade he would call my landline an leave a nasty voice mail. Got rid of the landline, problem solved, except for the anonymous disjointed postal mail! Oh boy just received one last week!

Published letters to the editor include the writer's name and their street name only if they live in Toledo. If you live outside Toledo, The Blade only publishes the name of your town. I don't understand why the difference.

And publishing either makes it easy for a kook to find your physical location. And now this is just more proof it happens a lot !. What's The Blade's problem?

You are expecting the blade to have ethics?

Hardy, har, har!

Yes I did because the local TV stations certainly don't. Not a good outlook for our World.

ask MikeY!!!

Purnhrt,

Whom did I out? I cannot recall.

Or is this one of your crazy claims like that I attacked your son on this site?

MikeyA

Purnhrt,

"Whom did I out? I cannot recall."

Come on MikeyA we just didn't fall off the turnip truck!

Ok it should be easy then.

What poster did I deny anonymity to? Because I am a staunch defender of anonymity on the Internet but I feel a poster when taking that right should go to great lengths to protect that right.

You wolfman attack anonymous posters but you yourself were anonymous until you were outed by someone who doesn't post here because you choose to defame them. Your "outing" is a result of your own actions.

I take no heed at calling out Mike Coon. I go out of my way to provoke him. Why because he cannot leave it here. He chooses to engage posters in their personal life. He abuses the anonymity. So, I choose to call him a fag and provoke him because it infuriates him that he can't engage me off line. Did you notice that when I began engaging him his posting frequency subsided? If other anonymous posters do what I did he'd probably leave altogether.

Now, Paul, I must ask. Who are you to try and call me out? You anise the anonymity as much as Mike. Your posts lead the tally of people who go through the hassle of creating an account just to say "you're right wolfman" and never be heard from again!
