Calling Informants "Snitches" May Be a Federal Felony – The Volokh Conspiracy

That’s so regardless of whether the statement is seen as a true threat or incitement—and it applies to any “harmful” speech “inten[ded] to retaliate” against anyone giving law enforcement “any truthful information” related to a federal crime.

Title 18 U.S.C. § 1513(e) of the witness retaliation statute provides,

Pittman challenges elections board’s decision – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: This ignant ass right here continues to validate that he has issues.

Tarrick Pittman has started the process to appeal the recent decision by the Edgecombe County Board of Elections to dismiss his election protest.

Pittman filed a protest with the Edgecombe County Board of Elections on Oct. 16 questioning the outcome of the Oct. 8 election which left his opponent Andre Knight in the Ward 1 seat of the Rocky Mount City Council.

“This is not as much about the election as it is changing the process and making sure that other candidates and people who come behind me have a fair shot at really winning,” Pittman said in an interview Thursday. “That is what the fight is about. Somebody has to take to punches in order to bring attention to the situation. My goal is to change the game long-term.”

Change what process? Change what game? If this ignant ass think that politics is a game then he is don’t need to be into politics. Politics is about making decisions that affect folk livelihood.

In his original protest, Pittman cited three allegations concerning the elections process. The board dismissed these claims in a preliminary hearing where no additional evidence or comments were allowed. Because of the dismissal, the issue will not have a formal hearing unless Pittman wins the appeals process.

The B.S. allegations were ignant as hell.

Pittman said he still is awaiting a formal email or letter from Edgecombe County Elections Director Jerry Spruell about the decision of the board, but that letter has not come.

The lack of communication from the Edgecombe County Board of Elections is part of what bothers him about the way the issue was handled, Pittman said.

“After I turned in the protest, Mr. Spruell was supposed to call me and let me know what the next steps were, and he never did. I only learned about the preliminary hearing because someone saw it on Curmillus Dancy’s social media page,” Pittman said. “I was never informed about that by the elections director. Since I turned in the protest paper, I have not heard anything from him.”

Damn this ignant ass saying he somebody told him they seen it on my page when he and they follow my page faithfully. I can’t wait to hear from Rev. Spruell about his response to Tarrick saying he was not notified of the hearing.

Pittman also said he felt the Edgecombe County Board of Elections had made up their minds about the outcome before the hearing was held. Based on the way things happened, Pittman said he feels it is evidence of suppression.

Damn this ignant ass said he felt the outcome was already a done deal but I attended the hearing and since there were discussions held how in the hell does someone come up with their minds were already made up tickles the hell out of me. But maybe I missed something.

“The fact that these people knew about the hearing before I did shows to me that there is a larger conglomerate of people working together in order to suppress voters and in order to allow me to look in a negative light,” Pittman said.

Ignant ass I don’t work with the Board of Elections on anything. I hold the Board of Elections accountable for their actions. The reason I learned about the hearing because I had visited the Board of Elections Website and I seen some discrepancies in some dates. I had called Rev. Spruell about some days and dates for the appeals didn’t match. He then said that was not right because there is a hearing on Monday October 21. He said Tarrick Pittman has filed a complaint and I didn’t ask him for what and he didn’t tell me. I said thanks for letting me know. However I had been told that there was a notice in the County Building about the Board Of Elections meeting on Monday. Rev. Spruell said he would look at the website to make sure that the dates were corrected.

One of the claims Pittman made in his original protest concerned the failure of the voting machine one day during the early election cycle.

During the hearing, Spruell said the machine was only down for less than 30 minutes and that emergency ballots were collected. However, Pittman disputes that claim.

“It was down more than four hours,” Pittman said. “That was a blatant untruth.”

So this ignant is calling the Rev. Spruell a lie. So therefore the form that Tarrick filled out speaks to lying and perjury as it relates to the information and it read that if found guilty of such that one could be charged with a felony.

Pittman said if it came to a hearing, that would be proven.

Ignant what the hell are you talking about if it came to a hearing it was a hearing held on Monday. The information you presented was lies and you are still lying.

Another allegation originally made by Pittman concerned the fact that some Ward 1 voters were told they were not eligible to vote in the city election, when they actually were.

Spruell did not dispute this claim but said that provisional ballots were taken from people in that situation and that eight out of those 11 ballots were counted in the election.

Pittman said he was told by voters that many more were affected by this situation. He said he also witnessed eligible voters turned away from the polls.

This is about as ignant as it gets. How do Tarrick know they were eligible to vote? Did he look up their voter information and if he did where did he get it because it had to come from the Edgecombe County Board of Elections.

“Mr. Spruell spoke solely about the Fairview Road location, but we know of about 25 or 30 voters who were affected in the early voting at the Fairview Road location,” Pittman said. “There were also people affected on Election Day at the West Edgecombe Fire Department location. There were at least 15 or 20 people turned away there. I witnessed five myself when I was there. And none of those five people were given provisional ballots. They left frustrated and upset.”

Ignant so why didn’t you get these folk to sign something stating their issues before you filed the complaint? In order to get past the preliminary hearing you must provide all documentation at that time and you can’t add to or take away. I have been to hearings before and they carried it out properly.

Pittman said incidents such as these have left him questioning the legitimacy of the election process in Edgecombe County.

This is too ignant all of this noise with no proof just acting off emotions and lies. Sorry that kind of mess do not hold up in hearings and in the court of law. But for someone who are always breaking laws, I guess that is what one do just break laws and have no respect for laws.

“After seeing the way Jerry handled this and the level of competence of the board members, I think the department is at an all-time low and it is to the detriment of the citizens. They expect more out of leaders handling a sensitiv e process such as voting,” Pittman said. “It was shocking to me. This level of incompetence or corruption or collusion cannot continue.”

Damn the only corruption going on is the ignance being displayed by Tarrick Dinell Pittman trying to discredit folk.

Pittman said he tried to run a clean campaign despite the way he feels he was treated by Knight. He was offered incentives to not run against Knight, he said, and he turned those down. He also was approached with information that could have harmed Knight in the election but did not use it as part of his campaign, Pittman said.

Damn this ignant ass knows nothing about running a clean campaign. He didn’t have a campaign. I don’t understand how folk say they have a campaign when they have no campaign manager and team so therefore they are just out there. And this goes for anyone that has no campaign manager in my opinion.

“A lot of people from the LGBTQ community reached out with damaging information about Andre, but I elected to focus on the issues,” Pittman said. “I have less respect for him than I did before I started campaigning, and that is saying a lot.”

Now this is getting real Super Ignant now. So what does the LGBTQ community have to do with this? So why didn’t the LGBTQ didn’t make a Public Statement? So since they didn’t why don’t you tell it!

You say you elected to focus on the issues. Really! Hell who gives a damn about who you have respect for? You don’t have any respect for yourself and your daughter since you approached me about you having a daughter and telling me not to talk about your criminal activity. Damn but what you forgot is you ain’t my daddy.

Whatever happens with the appeal, Pittman said he plans to be back in the running for public office again and plans to do what he can to help the community in the meantime.

Too damn funny! You running for office with all of the b.s. you got going on from residency issues, business issues and just plain ignant issues shows that folk were not voting for you but against Andre Knight because of the WSBS Movement.

“I walk away from this not deterred,” he said. “I walk away from this with a broader voice than Andre could ever imagine to have within the community. I am definitely going to run for office again and I have plenty of time to campaign.”

Ignant you use the word deterred and I find that hilarious.

Ignant you say you have a broader voice. Ignant you have no vote on issues that affect the community so therefore you have no voice. You are just like Gwen Wilkins who lost to Rev. Richard Joyner you are just big mad. Both of you need to move in together and cry until the next election.

His message already is getting out there, he said.

“What we have established with the One Rocky Mount movement is important to change the mindset of people,” Pittman said. “We believe in working together, looking beyond race, color and creed. We are people who care about the community and want it to grow and develop. We are a cornucopia of like-minded people who share the same values.” (See Original Post)

This ignant says One Rocky Mount Movement and I think of LoveRockyMount which both are a bonifed WSBS Movement.

Ignant anyone that share your values are criminal minded and have no values so if they like it, I Love It! But I can’t be a part of the WSBS Movement and you can call it One Rocky Mount all day but it does not make it so.

Funny as hell ignant has always got to bring my name into his mess. But one thing about it when it comes to my name no matter how much you and the Special Cs try to discredit me you can’t. But what you do is everytime y’all bring my name up in your mess it gives me an avenue to validate that I am right about the WSBS Movement.

I also have an issue why the reporter Amelia Harper didn’t have the decency to contact me since naming me in the article. She could have asked me about my knowledge of my reporting about the Preliminary Hearing on Monday. So that makes me wonder what is and who else is behind this article. Especially when Amelia stopped and listened to Tarrick confront me after the hearing was over on Monday. I also told her to take a photo of the sign in sheet because Tarrick nor Samuel Battle didn’t sign their address. They have residency issues so I am going to keep my eyes and ears open for Tarrick’s residency being challenged.

Continue on my friends I got time. That is what I do. I am The Professional Political Agitator.

Damn fool has a residency issue and got his mail going to Nash County but saying he lives in Edgecombe County. I would think the BOE sent him a letter but he may couldn’t get a ride to Nash County to the P.O. Office that he has as his mailing address. But he may live on Nash County side and that is why he had signs beside Sandy Claus signs on Hwy 43 headed towards Dortches. that I seen when I went to Smithfield Red & White.

Beth Moore: Leaders Who Are Silent About White Supremacy Are Coward – Church Leaders

white supremacyOnce again Christian leader Beth Moore has rocked the evangelical boat. Moore wrote a handful of tweets about the need for Christian leaders to succinctly call out white supremacy as evil and refuse to “shrink back in cowardice” by being silent.

The full statement Moore offered in a series of three tweets is as follows:

Any “Christ” that can be invoked in support of white nationalism is a false Christ of the highest, most hellish order. An anti-Christ. A wholly-opposite christ. No such christ is the Christ Jesus of Scripture who taught His followers a love that sacrifices life & limb for others.

Let it be known, let it be declared by genuine followers of Jesus, that the man who opened fire in El Paso may invoke a Christ of some kind but it is NOT our Christ. His Christ would be unrecognizable to us. Unrecognizable in Scripture. We claim no . . . (Read more)

WSBS Movement – White Supremacy Bull Shit

Definition per Google for White Supremacy – “the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially the black race, and should therefore dominate society.”

Rocky Mount NC has been the target of WSBS since 2003 when the Rocky Mount City Council became a Black Majority. But it didn’t just begin in 2003 but in 2018 some has that time some has made it a daily job to attack Black Leadership. There has been some Special Cs whom said during the municipal election during that time that if the council became a Black Majority they would sell their property and move out of Rocky Mount. Some have moved and some have stayed but they both are still trying to run the city so they started a WSBS Movement trying to discredit the Black Council members and the Black Leadership employed by the city such as the City Manager, Department Heads, Police Chief and Fire Chief.

But the sad part is Some Safe Black Folk have teamed up with the Special Cs to attempt to remove Black Leadership in Rocky Mount at every level even going after Black Community Leaders in Edgecombe and Nash County.

The WSBS Movement can be found almost daily in Rocky Mount Telegram and on several Social Media pages and they are Community Council founder Lige Daughtridge who was just elected to serve on the Rocky Mount City Council. He is a member of the Rocky Mount Planning Board until he begin his 4 year term as a City Council member. Fighting Crime Kat founder that is hiding behind fighting crime reporting to report on Rocky Mount City Government and other racial stuff. WHIG-TV Sandra Smith CEO and Robbie Davis Chair Nash County Commissioner and longtime Developer purchased the station in 2018. Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens founder Barry Rehms, Tales Of An Educated Debutante, LoveRockyMount founder Warren Daughtridge and some individuals social media pages.

Look at the Black Folk who are friends and/or subscribed to these pages and see what they are saying. But also remember those who are silent. Silence can be betrayal!

I have no problem with what folk like and/or dislike but what I do have a problem with is how these folk just lie, lie, lie. Just tell the truth. I have come to the conclusion that the truth ain’t in them so the WSBS Movement is in full progress.

Jim Crow laws mandated segregating mainly blacks from whites, right down to water fountains. THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY

For the better part of a century, African Americans lived under the burden of what now are known as Jim Crow laws. This racist system of segregating people, mainly blacks from whites, infected virtually every sector of American life, and reached far beyond the South where it was best known and most cruelly practiced.

Worse yet, Jim Crow and the deep wounds it inflicted on American society are not relegated to the past tense. Its legacy is still felt, in many ways, today.

“Jim Crow was about so much more than laws,” says Stephen Berrey, a professor of American Culture at the University of Michigan and the author of “The Jim Crow Routine: Everyday Performances of Race, Civil Rights, and Segregation in Mississippi.” “It really was an all-encompassing system that involved political practices, economic practices, social practices, cultural practices. Some of that was about legal things, but some of it wasn’t.

“One of the challenges why Jim Crow often seems like it’s in the past, people tend to think that, ‘Oh, it was a few laws, and we got rid of segregation laws, and we got the Voting Rights Act, so that must have taken care of it.’

“It didn’t.”
