For a supposedly 'religious type' you seem to be mighty angry in your defense of a child rapist! If you read my original blog you would have read that I stated " not one of us is sinless?' Did you miss that part??
So, those of us, especially me, are trapped in Satan's grip?? Do I have that right? And we are evil-doers for pointing out not just Marcus Scott's sin but his violation of the law for which he has been fired not once but twice for (Liberty and Montgomery Counties) and his Judicial appeal was denied by a Magistrate Judge. That looks like THREE STRIKES to me MAD DOG.
And, I almost forgot: I am a racist also!!!
Question for Mad Dog: Where was my racism while I wrote for The Liberty Truth in support of Carolyn Brown? A Black female that had a disproportionate level of punishment handed down to her by the criminal justice system. Was I a racist then or was I just playin' everybody?
How does that square with your racist litmus test?
Jimmie and your supporters, what you are doing in theses blogs are considered slander, and defamation of character. Fact: The State of Georgia has a system of justice in place for individuals that commit crimes. Can you check the court records, and put forth factual evidence where Marcus Scott was charged with violating a law of the State, and/ or prosecuted from the crimes that you alleged he committed? The mere fact that unsubstantiated allegations were raised against Marcus Scott, does not lead to him being guilty of the crimes you so boldly allege. I would like believe that the State have competent prosecutors: and the mere fact that charges of the crimes that you so boldly allege was committed on behalf of Marcus Scott in the State of Georgia, failed to make it on an indictment is proof that not even the State of Georgia viewed Marcus Scott’s conduct as a violation of the law. The fact remain, Marcus never committed such crimes that you alleged in your blogs, and your actions are clearly intentional, and knowingly inflammatory, malicious, defaming, and outright slander. Politics exists in many administration panels, but reality is, “If a person, especially an African American male, had committed such a crime, we all know that he would have faced full speed prosecution.” Reality is, Marcus Scott has never committed an act of immoral turpitude in life, nor in his official capacity as a public school educator and/ or school official; and there exist no criminal record to prove that he committed a crime in his official capacity as an educator. Your conduct clearly undermines the integrity of the school where Marcus Scott once randomly substituted, while he himself was a non-degree randomly selected substitute teacher. The mere fact that Marcus Scott dated and eventually married a female from his neighborhood with the consent of the females mother, and just happened to as a non-degreed adolescent, and random substitute teacher substitute at the school and/ or class attended by a female he was dating from his community doesn’t make him a rapist and/ or pedophile of any kind. Marcus Scott, if you read this blob/ post you needs to get a good lawyer.
In Georgia, the elements of a defamation claim are:
1. a false statement about the plaintiff;
2. communication of the statement to a third party in the absence of a special privilege to do so;
3. fault of the defendant amounting at least to negligence; and
4. harm to the plaintiff, unless the statement amounts to per se defamation. See Smith v. Stewart, 660 S.E.2d 822, 828 (Ga. Ct. App. 2008).
These elements of a defamation claim in Georgia are similar to the elements listed in the general Defamation Law section, with the following exceptions:
Defamation Per Se
Georgia recognizes that certain statements constitute defamation per se. These statements are so egregious that they will always be considered defamatory and are assumed to harm the plaintiff's reputation, without further need to prove that harm. Under Georgia statutes, a statement is defamatory per se if it:
• charges another person with a crime punishable by law;
• charges another person “with having some contagious disorder or with being guilty of some debasing act which may exclude him from society;” or
• refers to the trade, office, or profession of another person, and is calculated to injure him.
Well Mad Dog, slander is the spoken word. Libel is the written word. If you plan to have me indicted for quoting public information then go for it. Mr. Scott is now a public figure by virtue of his candidacy and therefore open to public scrutiny even if you or he do not like it. Answer me this:
Why was Mr. Scott fired from the Liberty County School System?
Why was he fired from the Montgomery School System?
Why did a judge deny his appeal that he was denied Due Process?
Are you saying that Mr. Scott now denies impregnating a female under the age of consent?
Is that your words or Mr. Scott's word?
Are you or Mr. Scott now denying the information printed for public consumption in June 2008 of the Coastal Courier in which the specifics are noted regarding his sexual transgression with a 15 year old female?
Mad Dog: Mr. Scott still has the chance to do the right thing and both you and he know what that is. This time he has a chance to make the right choice.
You can wrap this up in any context you still come up with the same CRIME. No matter how many civic activities, he should not be allowed to be around children. He should be allowed the premise that he has bettered himself but that still does not erase the facts.
By the way MD, if the Courier is willing to publish a letter to the Editor denoting CC initial coverage; its true point blank. The CC would not set themselves up for litigation if they did not have validation from public record. So the real question is; Are you stating that even though the crimes committed are valid, you are still good with this cat being around children. Lastly, please quit trying to make this a race based issue. Just because their is an issue with an ethnicity does not mean it is a race based situation. And... while you are busy quoting the bible you might want to also take some time to read the verses that address this cats transgressions...
