Okay folks, the pain in the butt is back in all his glory. I come and go like the tides. I don’t get into court as often as I would like to because of an increasing workload of trying to help out people who have either been justly charged or unjustly charged. I’ll let you guess which one of the two is the most prevalent in Stanislaus County.

Marty Carlson and Tom Jensen are doing a great job of reporting what is actually happening in the courtroom daily. I rely on their commentaries to stay informed and to also draw some information from that I can use in my commentaries even though I was not present. There is no question that their commentaries are more factual and truthful than that whole bevy of dirt bags that Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. has paraded for all to see and make each of us thank God that we have a life.

I was able to slide into court on Tuesday afternoon for that session. It was only a two-hour session because of a prior commitment by one of the defense attorneys. So I’m going to highlight some of what I saw there and again I advise you to read Marty and Tom’s commentaries on the proceedings as they came into much more detail than I have time to complete.

Court started at 1:41 PM and the judge had discussion with the attorneys regarding a warrant log.

Then there was a mention by Special Agent Kirk Bunch that there had been no recording made of an alleged polygraph that Robert Woody had been given on April 24, 2014.

That Robert Woody retook the stand in his little Lord follow Royce suit but at least he had a different color suit on. Robert Forkner began questioning Woody about how many times he been to Washington. Woody stated just a couple of times. Mr. Forkner then asked don’t you have children in Washington. Woody stated he does but he had been there in eight years. Mr. Forkner asked whether or not he visited his children and he stated he didn’t. Well there are mixed blessings.

Mr. Forkner asked him about a prior offer he had of 10 years. Woody stated he thought he would be getting 10 to 15 years. Robert Forkner then asked him if he had been holding back information since his arrest and Woody stated that he has been. He was then asked why the offer got dropped to seven years after he had a talk with his attorney. He didn’t have an answer for that.

Mr. Forkner then asked him why he sat on the wire that Miranda Dykes said that he had killed Korey Kauffman himself. He stated he was either drunk or high is the reason that he confessed. Woody was then asked if Miranda Dykes had told him that she was scared because she thought that the CPS was going to take her children. Woody stated that she was and he was just going to try to help her. Woody is all heart. Even though he stated that he had taken a box cutter and cut off Korey Kauffman’s fingers and toes. Way to show the love dude.

Woody was then asked how many times he had had a felony conviction and the out of work comedian said a few and you guys know better than me. “Here’s your sign Woody”. Attorney Forkner then asked if he saw any pipes on Frank Carson’s property standing up like the shape of a tee pee. He stated that that was the first time he heard about that.

Woody and stated prior that he was squeamish and did not like the sight of blood. He had said he didn’t even like to try to put a worm on a hook the fish with. What a wussey. I know girls that do that all the time and then enjoy the fish they catch. Mr. Forkner then asked him how he could cut off Korey Kauffman’s fingers and toes. Obviously putting a fish on a hook and cutting off someone’s fingers and toes are as different as the truth and a lie. Me thinks that Woody speaks with forked tongue. Now I know why he dropped out of medical school to be an orthopedic surgeon.

Mr. Forkner then asked what they did with Korey’s shoes and socks and Woody casually said I put them back on. He was asked if there was blood there and he said maybe a little but I didn’t get any on me. I don’t know if Woody has enough of a brain that hasn’t been fried by meth to be a sociopath.

That Mr. Forkner asked him if he has ever lied to get out of trouble? Woody immediately answered “NO”. He was asked if when he got caught in a stolen car if he lied to the police. He stated only to protect his brothers. Brotherly love. He was asked if he ever hotwired cars and he said no. Under questioning by Mr. Forkner he admitted that he had stolen cars and left them in orchards, burned them up and even dumped them in a canal. This turd is every insurance company’s nightmare. At he gained notoriety to help Stanislaus County become the stolen car capital of the United States. So who says Woody doesn’t have anything to hang his hat on?

He was asked if he would lie in court to protect his mother and he immediately stated no. Mr. Forkner then went over an interview that Woody had given to Special Agent Kirk Bunch. He was asked about approximately 20 different statements made to Special Agent Kirk Bunch and he stated he had lied in each and every one of them. But remember he had testified minutes earlier that he had never lied to get out of trouble. Some people lie so much that they would know the truth if it came up and kick them in the teeth. We don’t want to have Woody’s teeth kicked because they cost $10,000.

Among the things he lied about the fact that he was not there when Korey Kauffman was allegedly murdered and that he did not do anything to him. Through Mr. Forkner’s questioning the statement that Special Agent Kirk Bunch got from him were all lies. And were going to get into another person who has been lying in just a little bit. Mr. Forkner asked Woody to look at Christina DeFilippo and asked if he knows her. Woody stated that he had never seen her before.

Well since it was a short day court was then adjourned. So we have to go on to other things now.

As many of you know the tag team of Special Agent Kirk Bunch and Mme. Dist. Atty. interviewed County supervisor Jim Dimartini regarding some statements he made on local radio. After listening to the audio of his interview the first thing I did in this paragraph is list Special Agent Kirk Bunch first. When you listen to the audio it becomes apparent to anyone with half a brain that Special Agent Kirk Bunch is Mme. Dist. Atty.’s handler.

Obviously Dimartini would like to be able to use the excuse that he had had few martinis before he spoke on blog talk radio. During that interview Mr. DiMartini stated that there had been in excess of $3 million spent on a prosecution that the Dist. Atty. cannot win. Mr. DiMartini stated on the audio that he thought he was going there to have an interview regarding his reelection campaign. Politicians need all the free exposure they can get. It became apparent after the blog talk radio interview that Mr. DiMartini was not held in good favor with the office of the Stanislaus County district attorney.

So here comes Special Agent Kirk Bunch and Marlissa Ferreira to see if they could get Mr. DiMartini to walk back some of his comments. Well if you listen to the audio you can see that Mr. DiMartini all of a sudden, began to urinate backwards on Carmen Sabatino. Mr. DiMartini knows that the Dist. Atty. would not hesitate to try to take down anybody even though all of her high profile cases have been lost.

Through Special Agent Kirk Bunch’s intimidation oops that darned spell check again, I meant to say interrogation oh I know darn it, I’m turning off my spell check because what I meant was interview. Or maybe spellcheck did know what it was spelling. I’ll let you decide. In this intim,interr I mean interview, Special Agent Kirk Bunch asks very leading questions which seems to be his forte in his intim,interr I mean interviews especially when he’s with Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira.

We all remember that incident in which this dynamic duo went to Turlock to intim, interr I mean interview Mr. Samra before defense attorney Forkner could talk to him. After verbally beating Mr. Samra about the head shoulders and shins and when departing admonished him that “this didn’t happen” and “we weren’t here”. So that means that if someone asked Mr. Samra under oath if Special Agent Kirk Bunch and Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira were there, they would be guilty of a violation of California Penal Code section 127 a felony, subordination of perjury. What is this world coming to? We know at least here in Stanislaus County don’t we people. Just saying…

Then in court when Mr. Samra did not provide the answers that Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira wanted, she showed that she slipped through the class on integrity and said to him “don’t you have a warrant out for you?” Well he did have and they knew that a few days prior when they were intim, interr I mean interviewing him and his business in Turlock. Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder could easily see that Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira did that as a vindictive punishment to teach him a lesson.

Getting back to Mr. DiMartini at the dynamic duo listening to the audio shows that Mr. DiMartini was squealing like a stuck pig with Special Agent Kirk Bunch handling the knife. Special Agent Kirk Bunch through leading questions got poor helpless Mr. DiMartini to say that some people will use anyone to get something out of it. Even cozy up to an alleged enemy.

Mr. DiMartini said that some people have an enemies list and never gives an arrest. Mr. DiMartini said that mostly it’s been the sheriff most of the time and under Modesto Bee is on the list too. DiMartini one on to state that the sheriff, DA, Chamber of Commerce, Krausnick and Reagan Wilson. DiMartini said that locals have a little circle of enemies and goes around attacking them.

Then Special Agent Kirk Bunch is heard to ask “Am I on that list?” And DiMartini says “Yeah”. Then Special Agent Kirk Bunch in all of his glory asks “Am I before you are after you on the list?” Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw. Then Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira seemingly out of nowhere since she has been so quiet during this whole intim, interr I mean interview explodes on the scene with this knee slapper “I’m not even going to ask about me”. Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw. By the way, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines “Guffaw” as:  a loud or boisterous burst of laughter. My mother used to say that “Simple minds are easily amused”. Case in point.

Now we already know that deputy public defender Ben Rosenstein proved that Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira lied in court when she said that there had been no deals or considerations given for any of the dirt bag tweaker’s testimony in court. Mr. Rosenstein said that in fact there were deals made including a deal for Ronald Cooper and for Michael Cooley. Liar liar pants on fire!

It is so refreshing to have a county employee who is not afraid to stick his head in the lion’s mouth and tell the truth. I commend Mr. Rosenstein for his candor and honesty. I certainly trust that Mr. Rosenstein will not be castigated, criticized, coerced or compromised in any way because of his courage and wanting to set the record straight. We here in Stanislaus County know that there’s a powerful political machine we have to contend with. Thank you Mr. Rosenstein for your service to the citizens of Stanislaus County. Just saying…

I will add that after Mr. Rosenstein testified, Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira immediately began to attack Mr. Rosenstein saying is only been an attorney since 2012. And that is mainly been in one court and that there is no way Mr. Rosenstein could know of all local prosecutor’s procedures. Mr. Rosenstein retorted that he in fact has been in numerous courts and is familiar with many of the deputy Dist. Atty.’s procedures and “stood his ground”. Way to go Ben! Just saying…

Now for the latest one, Mr. DiMartini mentioned on the audio that he had heard that there were a bunch of less than desirable people as witnesses that had a shady past. Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira immediately chimed in “Oh no. There are less than 15 of those”. Be careful Mrs. Pinocchio your nose is growing. I began to look through the Ramey warrant that it took the
judge to stick his neck out and sign, and I stopped counting at 21. I would think that Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira would be proud of the gaggle of criminal dregs of society that are the basis for her case.

I don’t know why Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira would lie to County supervisor Dimartini about such a thing. Well “The Shadow” knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men and women. If you want to give away your age, tell us that you used to listen to that show on the radio. Evil is as evil does.

But then we remember about a week and a half ago, when Special Agent Bunch was caught lying on the stand and a new buzz word popped up. When a prosecution witness lies on the stand, it is now referred to as being “incorrect” since there is no law against being “incorrect” only for perjury.

NEWS FLASH: A missing person’s report was filed on Jim Cook (Tweedle Dumb) and Chris Cook (Tweedle Dee) his son.

THIS NEWS UPDATE: JUST IN: They were just found on a six-month cruise around the world thanks to the killing they made off the taxpayers of Stanislaus County. They said to give their best to the folks back home.

Well this wraps up this edition of my commentary. And as I leave I will tell you that Marty Carlson, Tom Jensen and myself, the three commentators, kinda like the 3 Musketeers minus 1, bringing the truth to the public have talked among ourselves. We have also had some input from regulars in the gallery. We know that we are not well thought of by certain members of the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office. We also know that there are other deputy district attorneys in the office that are levelheaded and know and appreciate that the truth is being reported.

I have advised my co-conspirators as I’m sure we are being referred to by certain members of the district attorney staff, that if you are walking down the street and feel the need to expectorate, I told them to swallow it rather than get arrested for expectorating on the sidewalk. That being said we have come to the conclusion that any one of the three of us could be picked off for some mundane reason and arrested.

I also gave them as a heads up that when I was younger, my mother always told me when you go outside in public, you make sure you have clean underwear on in case you get in an accident. So I am careful to ensure that each time I go out in public now I have a clean pair of underwear on. I wouldn’t want to have to go to jail with skid mark skivvies. Thinking that that would alert my co-conspirators, I was caught off guard when Marty Carlson told me it can’t happen to him, because he doesn’t wear underwear.

No underwear really?

In closing, on a more serious note I will add that I am a Christian and believe in God and in His word. These are trying times for the Carson 8 and are severely impacting their lives. Remember, absolute power corrupts absolutely! I am ending with the following Scripture taken from the Living Bible:

Isaiah 54:17  But in that coming day, no weapon turned against you shall succeed, and you will have justice against every courtroom lie. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. This is the blessing I have given you, says the Lord. Amen.

OK people, I’ll see you on the other side. Have a good weekend.


  1. I am ready represent any one of you that get falsely accused by the Evil ones for doing what no one else including our local newspaper will do – reporting the truth about this wrongful malicious persecution of these Innocent citizens.

    1. mlb: of course they would never say they popped us for free speech. They would dream up some CS BS charge to get us away for as long as they could. Can’t put anything past desperate people, especially law enforcement. Thank you for the offer.

  2. Well said Warren. Also note that the Modesto City Counsel has approved the use of spy drones by the Modesto PD. Now how likely do you think it is that they are using those drones to surveil you and Marty and Tom? I’d say about 100 % but the Chief of Police did sincerely promise the City Counsel that they wouldnt use the drones to spy on people. Yeah,right

  3. I will make sure I am butt naked in the back yard.The mere sight of my 66 year old body will cause the optics on the drone to explode. It’s just too hot to handle. LOL Tom Jensen

watcha gotta say?
