America the land of the good, the bad, and some are ugly
By Marty Carlson
Having this week off from the preliminary hearing of Frank Carson and others has given me a little time to sit back and think and observe the many people that seem to come out of the woodwork in these type of high profile cases. Here’s just a few thoughts and experiences that has occurred recently in dealing with the many people who are interested in this case, and it is obvious that there is no other resource available to gain information especially on a daily basis of this hearing. And based on the massive number of hits on my site there is large numbers looking to be informed. The local newspaper has decided to ignore their 3rd largest story of 2015.
I am working to make the information available to anyone interested, and as I said have said in the past I have no horse in this race. I have never seen or met Frank Carson prior to me going to court, nor any of the other defendants in this case. What my thoughts are based on today is the variety of people that want to be informed, and also some of the people that want to insert themselves into these type public cases or issues and try to make it about them.
As most of you know this case involves a lot of the criminal element as some of the major witnesses that are being relied upon by the prosecution to make their case. I’m not going to their names, most of you have been following my blogs know who they are, there is a embezzler that stole thousands of dollars from her employer and has her case still pending after almost 4 years, there is the career criminal who is a prison gang dropout and much of the testimony of recent has been based on his statements, as he was the last one they repeatedly say to see Korey Kauffman alive. This gentleman has a long career as a professional thief, drug dealer, and testimony revealed a violent streak especially when it came to his girlfriend.
That brings us to his girlfriend who admitted on the stand in this hearing that they were selling stolen antiques from the Carson property. And herself is also pending charges, and her also has not had her case adjudicated for a couple of years. There was another person that was involved in a transportation and selling of those antiques and they even had the address, her car, her license plate information, and where all the antiques were being taken to be sold up in the foothills.
There was a state prison inmate that testified, that was wearing a red and white striped prison jumpsuit, meaning he was in protective custody, and in his testimony when asked who he sold drugs to he said “Turlock”. He was also in state prison for a home invasion where he had held the victim hostage with a knife to her neck but stated on the stand he had done nothing wrong. This gentleman was also looking for considerations in prison. When he was done testifying he insisted and received special transportation back to his home, I believe is in Pleasant Valley, normally these situations they go to a reception center like DVI, then get process back to where they came from. It may not sound much to a lot of people but to this gentleman that was a special consideration because he doesn’t have much else.
Then there was the career criminal, who injected himself into this case writing a letter from jail just before getting released, he wrote a letter to his old friend that he had known for years that was the DA investigator and involved himself in this case. There’s only one type of person that does that and that is someone who is a career criminal, a professional snitch, and is trying to work for future considerations knowing full well what is ahead of him. This gentleman during cross-examination, on the witness stand, told several attorneys to “fuck off”. He readily admitted that he was a career criminal, and he earned a living by going out and what he referred to as “harvesting”, meaning that he was stealing other people’s marijuana plants in order to sell. He was having a good time on the stand disrespecting the court, disrespecting all the attorneys in the court, and in my opinion showing that he didn’t have to play by anybody’s rules but his own.
The same gentleman who was on an ankle bracelet at the time is his testimony, and he will be called again for more testimony maybe, had been absconding from probation and stating to the DA investigators via text and emails, that he was now in fear for his life because of his testimony, and remember he injected himself into this case. They were unable to locate him for some time, and it also picked up another case involving drug possession, and was not found until he was involved in a barricaded situation in a house with a SWAT team was about to be called but he came out at the last minute.
I have heard testimony from law enforcement and was actually embarrassed for them at times. There was a Mariposa County deputy that recovered the remains of Korey Kauffman after the remains were located in a rural area in the mountains. This deputy was not prepared for her testimony, which was not difficult testimony where she only had to testify about finding the remains. One comment that caught my ear that she made during her testimony was that to her this was just another body found. Where the body was located was not secured as a crime scene, evidence that was found at the scene namely skeletal remains, were not marked photographed or videotaped. She picked up a few of the remains the first day left the scene with no officer left on scene to secure that scene in return the next day to look for more evidence, and did locate a bullet that was under what she described as a layer of dirt, and was found by a digging with a piece of a stick that was laying on the ground. This was found directly underneath where the shirt and jacket of the remains were found. For some reason they felt that was the only place to look for evidence underground, no other areas where dug up or looked at for more physical evidence. In addition, that bullet that was found was thrown into a bag with some of the skeletal remains and was not bagged separately to avoid contamination. This officer was not prepared she did not know what to testify to and was obviously uncomfortable and extremely nervous on the stand. Her testimony was an extremely painful testimony to watch, as I have testified in that position in the past myself I could not believe she was not prepared or understood what she was there to testify for.
There were other issues involved with officer testimony, one particular officer felt the need to get advice from an attorney prior to his testimony about the investigation that he conducted in this homicide. Remember that the next time an officer tells you don’t need an attorney if you didn’t do anything wrong. Apparently he is going to testify some more in the very near future, and there are some issues from previous employment and legal problems that have been brought out in court in discovery has been provided to the defense.
One of the things to I wanted to bring up was some of the witnesses in this case have been reading this blog and feeling the need to come on here and talk to trash. I am the type of person is more than willing to let anybody have their say at any time as long as they’re not mother fucking me or anybody else. I do love opinions and I want to hear what people have to say, but if you come on to my site want to talk trash talk or stupid shit you will receive same in return. I have no problem getting into the gutter with people that only understand gutter type talk. And it’s funny this is happened on several occasions they’re not received a very well, by me and some of my viewers, and then have turned around and felt the need to complain to the District Attorney’s Office about the way they were treated after coming to my site first. As far as I’m concerned somebody that does that is nothing but a low class shithead tweaker that I simply have no time and patience for. You want to talk trash to your trashy friends I am simply not interested.
The other thing I wanted to bring up was the nut jobs that seem to come out of the woodwork and want the attention to be on them. Two in particular, one being what I think is a very close friend of the career criminal that barricaded himself in a house. She tried to tell me how fucked up I was in this poor guy was just a victim of the justice system. A court case index of this gentleman shows otherwise, and trust me this gentleman has never been a victim in his whole life in fact is one of the wolves not a sheep. I also find it interesting that this is nut job claims to be a nurse that works in the prison system, if she said affectionate towards the bad boys imagine the assistance that they are receiving while incarcerated. I have no facts I have no information other than the fact that the Department of Corrections is making daily visits in large numbers on Dawgs Blog. In addition, from her home.
There is also been another individual who I have referred to as the copsucker who felt the need to rant and rave on one of the posts and tell me that she had an obligation to inform everyone that we were not unbiased. To be honest I don’t give a fuck what she thinks. She went on long rants about AJ Pontillo who has nothing to do with this case other than the fact that Frank Carson was his attorney in his case. And she has a long history of being overly concerned about AJ’s business, and if you do a search on my site for the copsucker you will find FBI reports of her being the snitch that began the investigation into AJ’s legal issues. Initially I listened to her rant and rave and I told her if she has something that she wants to report on this blog she is welcome to come to court and do a report on the daily proceedings.
This person then again began ranting and raving about who I knew back in 2013 stating that she had screenshots, documentation, and all sorts of other kind of ridiculous information proving that I was friends with AJ, his girlfriend, Warren Yates, Tom Jensen prior to me going to court in the current preliminary hearing. Trying to rationalize with her I very quickly realized it could not happen and it all became very familiar with conversations I’ve had in the past with the copsucker. Even if she did have information that proved I was friends with all these people prior to me going to court I still say, so what? What the fuck does she have that means anything other the fact she’s a nosy intrusive person.
Just for the record again I will say it I first met AJ Pontillo shortly after his acquittal when I interviewed him for my blog, and 2013 my blog was not in existence, I never knew Tom Jensen Warren Yates until I went to court to start observing for myself. We decided to start putting our reports on Dawgs Blog and the backstorynew’s as there was no consistent press coverage by any media in Modesto, and the coverage that did happen was spoon fed by the DA. I do have examples to back up my claim.
There have been other contacts by many people sending me information, just wanting to talk about their situation, and I think at times just to vent a little bit. The tweakers still have occasional contact with me on this blog, on my personal Facebook page, and Dawgs Blog Facebook page. And to be honest I welcome any information that anybody has, and willing to help anyway I can that people that may need it.
Since starting these reports on this blog I have also been contacted by some people wanting me to go to court for friends or family to observe the proceedings and to report to them what is happening. Again I am more than willing to do that right now my concentration is on Frank Carson et al.
Just a few notes and some thoughts as I have said all along I welcome any opinion whether you agree or not, you can have your say without trash talk. If you choose to trash talk me or anybody else on this site you will be banned, I don’t care if you swear, or use bad language or grammar you can have your say.
As a reminder to everybody that court will continue Monday, April 4 at 10 AM and hopefully will learn by then the status of Jesse Garcia and his injury and to the extent it going to affect this hearing.
