Category: Bad Cops and corrupt public officials in Gilmer County WV


With all the turmoil and strife the Gilmer County Schools are going through, you would think that you would experience some accurate reporting, but NO, NEVER with the Glenville Democrat and Pathfinder of Bullshit for the local PRINT PRESS representatives.  ALL you will get from them is SPIN straight from the Church of Ike Morris, the head of Waco Oil, the REAL GOD round here. Yep old Ike runs the college, and calls all the shots, and the college calls the shots for the very fucked up city of GLENVILLE the county seat of Gilmer County, West Virginia, where the local law enforcement is completely, and totally bought and paid for.

Fast Forward in on this video about 10 minutes and thirty seconds and all hell breaks out in this state controlled Gilmer County Schools board meeting, this is a good example how the state illegally bullies the locals and lets them make NO decisions about their own schools.

The GFP got it all on tape, or nobody would believe this shit~~they are PISSED we got this on video. Check it out!!

Revenge of the Ghost Wolf has been known for years now to preserve history and that is why we have to bring up the fact that Tabitha Clem, of Hot Toddy fame was just arrested again — And Tabitha was also recently arrested for federal fire arms violation. Here is her latest mug shot only published hours ago.

Tabita Clem, the girl from Lewis County mixed up in the fire starring cult with Hot Toddy aka Christopher Todd Smith, just about the time Kelli Nicole Stamper Lawson , also from Lewis County was found DEAD in the BED of Todd Smith.

Since this is the beginning of SUMMER, but the end of June 2015  …RGW has been gathering facts about the GOATMAN Richard Neal who believes he bought the Cottrill Estate — we have to tell you this … VERY SOON the GOATMAN will find out that he has been challenged by an heir from New York, and after the latest law suit may own nothing at all…. the GOATMAN could very well find out he is a victim of a land fraud scheme that Gilmer County participated in!!

The GOATMAN believes he has a DEED signed at the Courthouse in Gilmer County April 28th 2015, but that dumb as fuck Jean Butcher the County Commission Clerk should have never even issued that deed since the accounting just handed in by the special appointed fiduciary commissioner LINDA HUFF clearly did not even have the sale of the estate listed as part of the accounting.

How could the final accounting even been accepted by the Gilmer County Commission?

Are they complete idiots? The Gilmer County Commission have looked like utter fools all throughout the Cottrill Estate debacle and now are in danger of being made major bafoons on a national level if the true story of this entire matter ever gets to the Huffington Post!

OH NO! Not the internet! The Church of Ike and the Power Elite of Gilmer County never counted on the internet prevailing over the local print press for reach and influence – The local readers flocked to the CalPatty Press for compelling new and informative regional news and current community concerns!

As far back as 2006 the Church of Ike and the local Power Elite underestimated the internet and all of it quirks, perks, and excitement added by Hot Toddy and the Fire Starting Cult “Hay days” … and we say “HAY DAY” because they were making hay while the SUN was Shining !! Kelli Nicole Stamper Lawson was bigger than life itself — Playing her REAL LIFE role as LUNACY LUCY of the Cult that ruled  Calhoun County … she and the other cult chicks were rode hard and put up wet down by the Calhoun Lagoon filled with Conspiracy!

Although these super hero’s known as HOT TODDY and LUNACY LUCY and her TRAINED GILA MONSTER …of local lore and actual history of the area, disturbingly shown brightly like the brightest stars of decadence in a dark Land of Hur night making the gossip column of the local paper during a unique period of internet history in which Calhoun County led America based on the per capita ratio of citizens for communities in “MYSTERY FIRES” … which marked that horrific time with an almost surreal feel!! Arson after Arson was declared by the local FIRE MARSHALL and the Cult were the ultimate suspects!!

Grantsville was becoming a national symbol for truth justice and getting the entire city of Grantsville kicked off the internet!!

That interesting fact became a real event when a former employee of google who started his own web hosting service banned Grantsville!

However one website was allowed immunity from certain prosecution known as …

“You got yanked quicker than a Hot Toddy Roddy, just like a rock star!! “

…Which meant your site was immediately missing when you went to edit it, the sucker just no longer existed which was the outcome for every HOT TODDY site ever posted!

…Thus the saying, “Yanked quicker than a Hot Toddy Roddy!”

The Juicy Lucy and her trained Gila Monster reference usually led to a scantly clad photo of Kelli Nicole Stamper Lawson daughter to county worker Vicki Butcher Shaver Closer and girlfriend to Fire Starting Cult leader Todd Smith aka HOT TODDY!!

“The one web site deserving of the immunity from the BAN on Grantsville, West Virginia in Calhoun County … that lasted for two years, was the LMR website!”

Those were the infamous internet days dominated by popular demand and popular vote for the LONE METH RANGER led by John Manis Richards and his Ranger outfit often getting violence and crime on tape as well as State Troopers bent over for the local regime known as the Power elite.

Public Access Denied!!

“It was a trying week for The Hur Herald, from being declared a pornographic connected site, to fighting viruses to another encounter with the West Virginia State Police, where access was denied during those rugged early days of the internet being introduced to Central WV …”

It was a time when the Hur Herald was angrily ordered to leave the scene of an accident by State Trooper Fred Hammack.

Hammack indicated photographing of his “Crime Scene” was illegal. He ordered us to leave, said Bob Weaver of the Hur Herald. ” We felt the scene, on a public road, was under the jurisdiction of emergency workers, and we were not violating a “Crime Scene,”  situation described which was in “plain view access,” under law.

Just before “Snatching Camera from BOB WEAVER” just like Darrel McGraw if he could now, and just like you knew he would now!! PUBLIC ACCESS DENIED by the State Trooper that LIED on several occasions and brought before a circuit court for perjury more than any one trooper in Calhoun or Gilmer County history that we know of.
Cpl. Doug Starcher, right, moments before he confiscated the camera. (Photo by Bob Weaver/Hur Herald)
An editor of a West Virginia online newspaper had his camera confiscated after photographing in the direction of a federal building  by the same cop who arrested him three years earlier for photographing a traffic accident.

While standing at a distance on private property in a meadow for about fifteen minutes, Trooper Hammack approached and said we should not be photographing dead bodies, juveniles or victims of wrecks, and we were “liars,” referring to an earlier conversation regarding taking pictures of an accident scene.

STATE POLICE HAVE BANNED HUR HERALD SAYS TROOPER!!“Trooper Hammack Says Charleston Gave Directive to proceed in the banning of an on line publication of even self imposed questionable content…”

Christopher Shane Dellinger who used to party with the Fire Starting Cult during the pill poppin and bed hopping days throws the victory sign when his criminal case brought against him while a Braxton County Sheriff, after getting the boot by the Grantsville Police Department was reversed. Dellinger said that Judge Facemire of the 14th district Circuit Court decided to make his own rules and the West Virginia Supreme Court agreed!

The West Virginia State Police are reportedly controlling access to “plain view” accidents or situations in Calhoun County, according to Trooper Fred Hammack. Hammack told four Calhoun emergency personnel, they (local State Police) had received a letter from Charleston saying not to allow The Hur Herald on their scenes.

He said The Herald was sent a letter advising them of the directive. The Herald received no such letter.

“This is the ultimate form of censorship,” said Editor Bob Weaver. “If they are doing this to us, can you imagine what they are doing to our citizens?”

Hammack told personnel from Calhouns 911 and the local fire chief that the Hur Herald was, “Not classified as a newspaper…because it’s on the internet!”

“What a line of malarkey that was since the Hur Herald is the most responsible news outlet in all of Central West Virginia besides the Gilmer Free Press The Gilmer Free Press gets more then twice the page views than the Hur Herald and is more of an investigative regional news service, but still, the Hur Herald has its own dedicated following.

Major D. R. Searls, after a Freedom of Information request, advised The Hur Herald:

“The requested document is not known to exist in our agency.”

“GINNY” Lanham  is the current chief counsel for the WV State Po Po. Virginia, “Ginny,” Lanham whose father was the attorney for IKE MORRIS for twenty years makes for the ultimate in political benefit. So how do you think that cover up went? Lanham is just another Crook from Crooked County, and was raised up as a young child in Gilmer County and so therefore, was more than familiar, and firmly briefed on any wrongdoing down round the Land of HUR!

Hammack claimed a letter or memo was sent to him or his agency saying, ” Not to allow The Hur Herald at State Police scenes!” He also said a copy of the directive was sent to The Herald. He said the matter had been researched by their (State Police) lawyer.

Calhoun County Officer Campbell who is from Wirt County retired over the CJ Ellyson Scandal in which the Sgt failed a lie detector test involving evidence missing from the evidence locker that could have convicted Calhoun County Chief Deputy Sheriff Bandy – Who later faced 7 felony charges. Trooper Starcher accused of perjury and brought to face a judge in circuit court twice brings up the rear while delivering a dangerous criminal to the 4th district circuit in Calhoun County.

These types of vicious attacks and intimidating situations are not unlike the attack on the editors of Crooked County Crooks, and the Calhoun Underground, and of course, not excluding the Lone Meth Ranger website…

The Lone Meth Ranger “Johnny Richards” exposed corruption and rogue cops in and around Calhoun County … dang me if he wasn’t right about all that he reported! It can now all be proven by court record.

“But no sooner than it was reported than Crooked County’s Gerald B Hough is brought down to make it all… Just OK !”

Gerald B Hough- Crooked County Prosecutor, will lie, cheat, misinform and just plain make things up to get a conviction in Crooked County!

Danny NUB Marks from Calhoun County – A witness paid by Gerald B Hough to lie on the stand – had himself a little run in with the leader of the Fire Starting Cult Christopher Todd Smith, aka “Hot Toddy,” who said that NUB had to rub some mud off of himself for having been pushed right off a hill during an altercation with the leader of the Cult that turned out bad for Nub when he pulled out a blade, and soon woke up in some shade, a cussing away about being hit about the face and shoulders by Hot Toddy again and again.

Winning a conviction can accelerate a prosecutor’s career, but getting rebuked on appeal will rarely stall it, contributing to a culture that fosters misconduct. And the deterrents that confront prosecutors are fearsome only in theory.

Here is what usually happens when a prosecutor cheats:

Appellate courts uphold the conviction, admonishing the prosecutor not to do it again. When a court does overturn the conviction, it shields the prosecutor from embarrassment, omitting his or her name from the opinion or releasing its ruling in a way that few eyes ever see it.

In their rulings, appellate justices sometimes urge lawyer disciplinary officials to punish prosecutors, but such prompting is hollow. Courts have referred numerous prosecutors to the “ Lawyer disciplinary board” that polices lawyers only to see investigative files get opened and closed with no punishment levied!

There is little threat of financial penalties from a civil lawsuit because courts have granted prosecutors immunity. Courts, though, have carved out narrow exceptions, and some defendants have won settlements!

And only rarely are criminal charges filed. Few prosecutors nationally have been indicted, and they were acquitted or, at worst, convicted of a misdemeanor and fined!

Hough is clearly guilty of wrongdoing and that wrongdoing will be coming to the surface long enough to bite him in just a matter of days, but, he will be saved by the Crooked gaggle of Demi-Gods known to us all as the people that really run Crooked County?!

The Difference between GOOD and EVIL runs right down that Crooked County Line according to the Central West Virginia Secret Seven!

Richard (Dick) Facemire was castigated by the West Virginia Supreme Court for asking questions of witnesses as if he were the prosecutor, swaying the jury with great bias in favor of the prosecution, but really what punishment was meted out?!

Hell ! Facemire was already reprimanded for a breach of ethics when he was the Clay County Prosecutor…a ruling was made by the Supreme Court and now he’s a judge!

Why Crooked Prosecutors and Judges are Promoted in the Masonic Judicial System!

It’s simple. A crooked judge is more likely not just to overlook the crimes of a fellow mason, but also more likely to use his authority to railroad an innocent defendant under the orders of a higher-ranking mason. Usually, it is done as a test of loyalty, in exchange for advancement, or some other reward.

We have seen Facemire do just that recently involving a Crooked County criminal trial!

More often, the misconduct consisted of arguments or cross-examinations that violated a defendant’s constitutional rights. In many instances, those prosecutors who became judges had only one reversal!

In this instance this is” exactly” what happened involving Crooked County Circuit Court Judge Richard (Dick) Facemire!

The CalPatty Press Cow Patty was first thrown against Power Elite that were CROOKED AS HELL February 5th 2007!

Friday February 5th, 2012 was the fifth anniversary of the CalPatty Press and we’ve been celebrating FIVE YEARS of bringing West Virginia the REAL TRUTH through the Secret Seven website Revenge of the Ghost Wolf as the battle against the Church of Ike and the Power of Darkness continues!

Prior to the invention of the truth blogs and the Central West Virginia Underground Press that also includes hardworking journalists, who are rather well known now, and who also have acquired quite an impressive track record for exposing bad cops and corruption in the WV Judicial system, the Crooks from Crooked County and the Power Elite and the Church of Ike  in WV literally got away with murder, rape and other heinous crimes for years, but starting in 2006 along came the Crooked County Crooks website, the Lone Meth Ranger and the Calhoun Underground, then all of the old ways of doing things changed!

“The modern way of doing things now includes the concept of corrupt members of law enforcement and dishonest self serving public officials being exposed for their unlawful actions against citizens!!” 

Nobody expected what was going to come along next, but it was the CalPatty Press and the Secret Seven Coalition!

The Power of Darkness underestimated the fact that the CalPatty Press would break through with such impressive demographics which caught the Church of Ike off guard and in which later the Power Elite felt compelled to hire professionals to combat some of their image problems created by revelations of TRUTH published on the internet by a group to be forever known as the Central West Virginia Secret Seven!!

We scored our first big victory when the Crooked County Crooks website formed a coalition with the Lone Meth Ranger, the TEAM RANGERS from Calhoun County and the very appreciated Calhoun Underground. Out of that meeting was born the CalPatty Press 5 February 2007, and that was when things really started to break loose!

“It was asserted that these escapes sponsored bv the Central West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition were organized by a band of CCC, whose daring seems to be unparalleled, and who, from sheer desire to be involved in fighting for individual rights and freedoms, have a dedicated purpose in snatching away lawful victims destined for bad ends at the hands of an elite group of public officials that Lisianna Rockefeller refers to as Crooked County Crooks!”

In the famous Circuit Court Case of the Lone Meth Ranger …

Artistic depiction of The LONE METH RANGER of Calhoun County – John Manis Richards – the leader of the group known as the Team Rangers!

John Manis Richards’ attorney, Robert Catlett, has requested the dismissal of a felony indictment after State Police in Grantsville say they lost evidence taken from the residence of the LONE METH RANGER who we all know as Johnny.

Much like the Kelley Mace meth case a few years ago, there was no analysis of an illegal drug, nor was the illegal drug ever presented.

Cpl. Doug Starcher testified numerous times during the Mace case that State Police had an illegal substance (meth) in their possession, taken from her residence using a search warrant.

The case was eventually dropped, when Starcher could not produce the evidence.

Ron Gordon former Police Chief in Grantsville now serving 15 years in prison was one of the first corrupt law enforcement officers exposed by a group that would be known as the Secret Seven Coalition who dominated Calhoun County reporting early in the days of Central West Virginia Internet history!

A State Police internal investigation and a criminal investigation of Starcher’s sworn statements, indicating perjury, produced no repercussions for the officer.

“Starcher’s sworn statements, indicating perjury, produced no repercussions for the officer.”

Imagine that!

State Police Sgt C.J. Ellyson, stating he discarded the alleged meth lab materials from a garage located in the barracks, indicating they were not properly secured by Sgt. Darrin Campbell.

What is even more interesting is that State Police from CALHOUN COUNTY testified in a hearing late that year, that they had in their possession evidence in the case against the Meth Ranger… when in fact all evidence had already been destroyed for months!

******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Remember the Calhoun Lagoon of Conspiracy we were talking about? Well it’s starting to fill up. Of course we called it correctly just as soon as the CalPatty Press editors were informed of Gerry Hough being brought in on the “Bandy” is not so dandy trial. Gerry claimed some BS sob story about the chain of evidence, and transcripts missing, and how by what could have only been an act of god, Hough suddenly had no case against the former Chief Deputy.

************************************************************************************************************************

So what are we at the CalPatty Press alleging, besides allegations of out right lies… just like “JUST OK” Gerry Hough?

WHITE FANG – personal guard dog for the leader of the Central West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition checks front door passes of people seeking entrance to the summer SS headquarters down by the Crooked River in Crooked County.

What are we at Cal Patty alleging besides outright lies told about evidence destroyed during testing for controlled substance… when there was no testing done?

What we are alleging is… that, STATE and Calhoun Officials fell into

HOT TODDY leader of the Fire Starting Cult formed a truce and had several conference meeting with the leader of the Central WV SS in an exchange of information and good will between the two groups, ending a six year war.

a genuine CalPatty COW PATTY and nothing was going to be the same for them again, since they were now being investigated by the people of Central WV! Every time you fall in a Cal Patty COW PATTY it sticks to your face!!

“In Crooked County you can break rules and be promoted!”

When Calhoun County lets the most dishonest prosecutor in all of West Virginia bring Crooked County rules to Calhoun County we are all screwed!

When former prosecutors were criticized by appeals courts for breaking the rules of a fair trial, their careers weren’t sidetracked. Instead they became judges.

Just like…..you know who judge Richard Dick Facemire!

“These rumors of the magnificent CCC soon grew with outrageous fervor; there is no doubt that this band of the CCC does exist; moreover, they seem to be under the leadership of someone whose pluck and fearlessness is almost famous. Astonishing reports are now un-moored of how the CCC and those whom rescued became suddenly invisible as they broke through barricades and escaped down the Crooked River by sheer phantom alliance!” all told in the book Revenge of the Ghost Wolf which tells vividly the story of Crooked County!

Do the Freemasons make a difference in Central WV?

1) A Crooked County  Officer of the Court who knew of an arrest warrant sworn out against a brother Power Elite Mason would have to warn him immediately so he could flee the jurisdiction, because that is the way they always do it down in Crooked County!

2) A  Church of Ike Mason who was told of a brother Mason’s crimes, even including rape, robbery, or child abuse, would have to keep his knowledge of those crimes a secret, even in a court of law, and even if it was a mad little midget like Judge Richard A Facemire!

3) A Royal Arch Mason Church of Ike son of a Bitch who knew of a Companion Mason’s being a murderer or a traitor would have to keep his knowledge a secret the Gerald B Hough way!

4) An ELITE Royal Arch Mason would be obligated to hire a Companion Mason, even for sensitive or skilled professions, even if he didn’t have nearly the qualifications required just like they do up at the college on the hill –  or the courthouse — that includes all the thrill  … complete with a nerve pill!

Additionally, though not mentioned in the oaths, many times  “Church of Ike”  .. feel alright  Freemason Bitches get a “Fairer” trial in courts where a bullshit Church of Ike Power Elite Masonic Judge presides.

BRING BACK MORALITY AND ETHICS FROM THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION. FIGURE OUT HOW WE HAVE MANAGED TO STAY SO CULTURALLY AND POLITICALLY BACKWARDS.

NEED AN EXAMPLE?

LOOK AT THE FRED HILL CASE. IT IS NOT SO MUCH WHO THE PERSON IS THAT KILLED HIM (though we’d like to see them convicted), BUT WHAT KILLED HIM. IT WAS IGNORANCE, FEAR AND OUR OWN COMPLACENCY WITH THIS SLAVERY SITUATION WE LIVE UNDER THAT KILLED FRED AND PROTECTS HIS MURDERER — AS SURE AS HE WENT IN THAT CROOKED RIVER ON A DARK AND COLD NIGHT.

THE FEAR OF ANYTHING OR ANYONE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IS AROUND US RIGHT THIS MINUTE IS WHAT KEEPS GILMER COUNTY IN THIS MESS. THE WORKING POOR AND POVERTY STRICKEN ARE SLAVES TO A LOCAL REGIME OF SELF SERVING POWER MONGERS CHURCH OF IKE SON’S OF BITCHES AS SURELY AS THE BLACK SLAVES EVER WERE TO ANY MAN. IT IS 1950 BACKWOODS APPALACHIA IN 2012 HERE IN GILMER COUNTY — AND NOT ONE LEADER HAS STEPPED UP TO IMPROVE CONDITIONS IF IT DOES NOT IMPROVE THEIR POCKETBOOK.

DRUG ADDICTION AND ALCOHOLISM IS THE WAY OF LIFE FOR YOUNG AND OLD A LIKE IN AN EFFORT TO HIDE THE PAIN OF THIS EXISTENCE AND STRIKING OUT THE ONLY WAY THEY KNOW TO MANAGE THE ANGER. HOW LONG HAVE WE BEEN ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL TO WAKE AND FIND THAT EVEN THE MOST EDUCATED ARE OWNED, POWERLESS AND WITHOUT A VOICE TO CRY FOR HELP IN THE DARKNESS OF GILMER COUNTY?

BRING OUT A FEW GIRLS, KEEP THE SEX FLOWING — MOST DO IT FOR THE DRUGS — NO TRUCK PAYMENT — YOU KNOW YOU’RE OK — TAKEN CARE OF  AFTER ALL YOU’RE THE MAN — YOU ARE SOMEBODY — AND THEY SAID SO — WHAT BUSTED — CALLING FROM  JAIL — DON’T WORRY ITS OK FOR YOU WALK THE POWER OF DARKNESS WAY — YOU PAINT IT BLACK ALL DAY!!

Free Bird Revenge of the Ghost Wolf Reporter on the left from the Central West Virginia Secret Seven along with Editor Edison of the CalPatty Press with Hurricane Rina McCoy of the original McCoy’s from Logan County CELEBRATE by “Painting it Black” and having some fun during the wrap party after seven days of hard work on the popular SS article … You have to PAINT IT BLACK in Gilmer County when you are addicted to the POWER of Darkness!!

Nepotism and cronyism prevail in West BY GOD Virginia  where a sizable majority of judges are ” You better do what I say …”  Masons, and many attorneys are YES SIR MASTER … I BE A GOOD NEGRO … Masons as well.

If a Church of Ike Power Elite from Gilmer County Mason appears in court against a non-Mason, all he has to do is give any number of obscure gestures or words to the judge, like, “Lets fuck this bitch up!”

…In which the result is the judge will be obligated to rule in the Church of Ike favor.

No one in the court room will be the wiser (except another Church of Ike follower who would be forbidden from bringing the incident to light).

It is easy to see how these elements of the oaths could very definitely be detrimental to the welfare of Crooked County down by the Crooked River. Masons, it is said, “Take care of their own,” and they do, to an extent which is always self serving.

The Crooked Gaggle of Demi-Gods sitting on golden seats can become so powerful that they target local law abiding citizens, and this has already happened!

The CalPatty Press often in the past has made reference to the WV Judicial System and the FREEMASON connection!

The judicial system in WV prefers to keep a person in the dark with the dark evidence that is brought from the dark side of the street and it is all so on the Dark Side that the subsequent legal actions often prove WV Judges and Lawyers are part of the Brotherhood of Darkness and Paint it BLACK with the Church of Ike!

These types of  West Virginia Judicial System Conspiracy stories are strictly taboo !! Especially if they reveal any truth…

John Manis Richards the Lone Meth Ranger during a meeting with the Team Rangers. Richards was set-up for an an arrest after being on the run by Crystal Metz the daughter to Crooked County Sheriff Mickey Metz!

“Most West Virginia  mainstream news service agencies  like the print press media outlets like the GAZETTE in Charleston are controlled by Phil Reale of Gilmer County and  the big campaign contribution up the patoot solution provided by WACO OIL and ASS!! When it comes to BIG IKE any request is granted with no questions asked!! That is how they always do it down in Gilmer County!!”

ALL THE CRONIES BELONG TO …the exclusive club of the Power Elite, the Church of Ike lobby!

“Now we can honestly say, that at this present time at Central Regional Jail and other regional jails in West Virginia more non-violent offenders versus violent offenders are currently behind bars in West Virginia!”

***

What the fuck?!

That is some bullshit!!

And I guess you know, those stupid Power Elite Bitches… think that’s “JUST OK !”   .. just like that catch phrase authored by Gerald B Hough the worst performing prosecutor to take the bar exam 8 times before he passed it.

“So BUILD MORE PRISONS is the medicine we are going to have to swallow now… because that is the current situation we are all being force fed!!”

Come on baby let me turn you around … turn you, turn you turn you around! Shore nuff they’ll be sellin stuff when the moon begins to rise down in Crooked County …
Just ask Fred Hill shown in this photo with gal pal all set to go downtown and tell no lies. Pretty BAD when your dealin with the MAN and the light shines in your eyes! The SS will remember FRED HILL this 11th day of December and three years after the Crooks from Crooked County KILLED FRED HILL!

The CHURCH of IKE is in the business of training jail guards using the old shoe factory as classroom and study areas for the purpose of building a force of Elite Military trained jail guards that will be asked to follow ever order no matter how ridiculous.

Manipulation, Murder, Rape, will be the educational criminal law enforcement courses taught by the Powers that Be, to their corrections officers! The local elite who  you know are also members of the  … just happen to be Better than You crowd!

…meaning much better than us, the fine citizens of the tri-county area of Central West Virginia ruled by the Church of Ike and the FRIGHT HOUSE on the hill!

“BETTER THAN YOU!” …Is what we the citizens of Gilmer County, West Virginia, and those who make up several other neighboring counties in Central WV are used to hearing .. just that .. every day!! And that’s how it always goes down!

“The Secret Seven Coalition Says … instead of letting it all go down …   Lets GO DOWNTOWN!!”

The CalPatty Press the most successful alternative news website in Central WV for monthly, weekly and daily page views, and now the Revenge of the Ghost Wolf website has taken the lead and is now published in replace of the traditionally shocking, but always accurate, voice of TRUTH the CalPatty Press!!

The Gilmer Free Press    The Gilmer Free PressELKINS, WV – A Barbour County woman’s lawsuit alleging while she was a teenager was coaxed into a sexual relationship by the former sheriff has come to a close.

Yesterday, trial was to begin in the case of Brittany Mae Keene v. John Wesley Hawkins, and the Barbour County Commission.  However, U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey on Monday entered an order dismissing it after receiving word Keene, 21, and Hawkins,49, mediated a tentative settlement.
Records show Keene agreed to voluntarily dismiss the Commission from the suit on Friday.

Telephone calls to both Keene’s, and Hawkins’ attorneys, Paul Harris, and Harry Smith III, inquiring about the terms of the settlement were not immediately returned.  Keith Gamble, attorney for the Commission, replied via email Tuesday noting Friday’s voluntary dismissal.

When asked if the Commission would still be required to disclose the terms since Hawkins was sued in his official capacity, and the county’s insurance carrier was footing the bill, Gamble replied “not necessarily,” and referred further questions to Smith.

In her complaint filed nearly two years ago, Keene alleged Hawkins began a series of conversations with her via Facebook in late July or early August 2011.  At the time, she was 17 years-old, and he was in his first term as sheriff.

About that time, Keene alleged Hawkins lured her to a camper at the county fairgrounds under the pretext of interviewing her for a job at county 911 center.  After entering the camper, she claims Hawkins offered her alcohol to drink.

When she attempted to leave, Keene claimed Hawkins pulled her back into the camper where he handcuffed her, stuffed a bandana into her mouth, and sexually assaulted her.  Both after the encounter, and via subsequent text messages, Keene alleged Hawkins threatened to kill her if she spoke publicly about what happened.

However, Keene filed a domestic violence protective order against Hawkins on May 11, 2012. A week before a scheduled hearing on her petition, Keene was indicted by the Barbour County grand jury for receiving stolen property.

Though it was later dismissed, Keene alleged the indictment was brought as a form of retaliation for filing her domestic violence petition.

In her suit, Keene alleged she was not the only victim of Hawkins’ “deviant sexual behavior.”  She claimed to have knowledge of at least five other women raging from 16- to 19-years old, Hawkins had sex with either while on duty or on county property.

Records show a trial date was rescheduled twice, the second time in February to accommodate Hawkins’ release from prison following his conviction on an unrelated mail fraud charge.

According to indictment brought against him via information by U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II on February 11, 2014, Hawkins ten months earlier wrecked a 2004 GMC Envoy owned by his wife at a farm on Jerusalem Church Road in Philippi he, and one of his deputies used to raise cattle.  Following the wreck, Hawkins instructed the deputy, whose name is not specified in the indictment, to misstate how, and where the wreck occurred.

After filing a claim with them, the indictment states Nationwide sent GMC Financial, who had a lien on the truck, one check for $8,167.25 on April 15, 2012, and another for $95.40 on June 10.

An indictment via information is where a defendant waives his right to have his case presented to the grand jury, and intends to plead guilty.

At the time of his indictment, Hawkins was in his second term as sheriff.  He was re-elected in 2012 with no opposition.

Records show that exchange for pleading guilty, resigning as sheriff, surrendering his law enforcement certification and agreeing never to serve in an law enforcement capacity again, U.S. Attorney’s Office agreed it would not prosecute Hawkins for charges stemming from an investigation into his mismanagement of an estate, and funds from the Sheriff’s tax office.

Last June, Bailey sentenced Hawkins to one year, and a day in prison followed by three years supervised probation.  In addition to a $100 special assessment, Hawkins was ordered to make full restitution to GMC Financial.

Records show Hawkins paid the assessment the day of his sentencing, and $2,000 toward the restitution a week later.

The following July, Hawkins was ordered by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to serve his sentence at the Federal Corrections Institution in Memphis, Tenn.  Records show he was released on May 28.

A review of our highly read RGW article published June 29th 2012.

By Free Bird – Revenge of the Ghost Wolf Reporter for the Secret Seven Coalition/Hurricane Rina McCoy – Crooked County Crooks Editor for the Concerned Citizens Free Press /Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor

“Frequently inexperienced and sometimes inadequately educated local authorities  known as the CPS from across this state get to judge whether hundreds of young, low income mothers and fathers are fit to be parents in West Virginia. Simply asking the question “Are you depressed?”, and getting a yes answer gives them license to misdiagnose those parents as having mental disorders and allows social services to remove children from the home.  Well duh, CPS has been called and whether right or wrong of course they’re depressed, wouldn’t you be?”

Child Protective Services (CPS)

Child Protective Services is a specialized Child Welfare service provided by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. This service is provided to families on behalf of children who are neglected or abused by their parents or by the guardians or custodians responsible for the care of children.

This is Gerald B Hough prosecuting attorney for Gilmer County, and Sheriff Metz will be first to tell you “Hough is the head law man around here!” If the new people to the area knew previously about the horrors of Glenville, and Crooked County many would never have taken the job at the federal prison or settled anyplace in Gilmer County, which has the most corrupt law enforcement and court system in the state of WV.

I know there are some people who are really trying and use their skills and education to benefit under privileged children. But, in this part of the state, I do know of a lot of people who use their kids for the free stuff and I have seen them sell their stamps for half price to buy drugs. There are rumors people are even selling their children via CPS employee’s to families looking to adopt or possibly into white slavery!

Some children in this part of the state are still doing without and the parents are spending the money on drugs and if those parents are drugged out of their minds, or drinking at Tallies Duck, how safe are those kids?

God Bless the ones who are responsible and take advantage that all the CPS has to offer to the parents that if they did drug test they would not have anything to worry about anyways. And I know kids who have been taken out of homes for petty stuff and then, there are the individuals who live in hell each and every day!  Nikki Harris and Teresa Williams, are two CPS workers in West Virginia that can make peoples life a living hell, according to citizens complaints.

“I don’t see how those two sleep at night. What if it was your kids or a family kid and a CPS worker acted like they did and did not do nothing to look into it or spend no more than a trip to ask a couple of questions and dropped it and forgot about it all together and did not investigate into it further?”

Those two CPS workers won’t even pick up a phone and call and ask witnesses to see if they can tell you something to back up a report.

Without tax payers CPS would have no financial support, so the specialty now of CPS is to steal from and destroy the people that actually put food on all their tables, which seems counterproductive to me.

Gilmer County, the home of RAPE and MURDER in Central West Virginia is certainly no stranger to child rape and child molestation, and some well known people are guilty as hell, but protected quite adequately by the local Church of Ike as this account attests to…

“I feel so sorry for these children that have been let down. I didn’t realize the justice system was failing so many children!”

“I thought that my situation was just a fluke or an accident or just simply an unwillingness to take on someone with money and a prominent name but to know that so many children have suffered the way one child in Gilmer County has …”

The CPS corruption in Calhoun County is lead by Crystal Kimble and Loretta Smith.
Ryan Underwood and Samara Keith are the only two honest CPS workers in the Calhoun office.
Loretta Smith blackmails mothers that have trouble with the law to make false statements, and then mixes a little bit of this and that to tell lies to set people up. The adult protective services workers also are corrupted ran by Jackie Blankenship and Victoria Butcher-Shaver. (Shown in this photo)
The facts are coming out, like HOT TODDY on a HOT SUMMER night with a cool summer breeze a blowin on that Big Gila Monster.

“It just truly saddens my heart and for the person that said parents are bad just cause our teenage daughter was molested by a supposed leader of the community is just wrong.”

“I trusted my ex-husband with our child on weekends, because I thought a father would protect his little girl, but he let something happen to her for promise of advancement at his work. I was wrong he allowed someone to repeatedly hurt her and introduce her to Cocaine! And when something was said to him he covered it up and refused to believe it. So sometimes it is out of your hands and when u go to the system for a protective order and the judge throws it out even though the women’s and children’s abuse center said it happened and my daughter named him 3 different times, but since he is a man of money and power in Glenville, he got away with rape just like so many of them do.”

“I just don’t know why so many children just slip through the cracks and something needs to change but how do you go about changing it?”

“I am grateful for one CPS worker she told my ex that she believed it happened and she made him see the light so my daughter has not been around this person and since she was 16. I think she forgot most of those bad days, or repressed it, but u can never be sure!”

When it comes to the children of citizens of Gilmer County things are so corrupt and dire that your everyday common person is AFRAID TO ATTEND a public meeting or openly discuss such issues since many of the public officials have proven to be criminals that can carry out violent reprisals or false charges for a false arrest, so most of the citizens are AFRAID in Gilmer County according to this poll of nearly 500 participants which is a large sample from a small County that has a population of only about 7000.

Have you ever had the WV CPS beating on your door for stupid reasons? According to an actual account…

“My child, who was 4 at the time had stepped in a pile of dog poop while he was getting on the school bus. I saw it, told the aid to bring him back off of the bus because of it.

“So sometimes it is out of your hands and when u go to the system for a protective order and the judge throws it out even though the women’s and children’s abuse center said a sexual assault happened and my daughter named him 3 different times, but since he is a man of money and power in Glenville, he got away with rape just like so many of them do.”

The Aid says “Oh don’t worry about it we ll clean it off”. I say OK thank you. 2 days later CPS is at my door because my son went to school with dog poop on his shoe. Then a week later, same 2 women from CPS are back because ” your sons hair wasnt brushed when he went to school the last few days”. Ummmm its WINTER he wears a knit skull cap. DUH his hairs gonna be a mess when he takes it off!”

“Seems to me that the only time CPS gets involved is if a School calls, not when a parent calls. Why bother people who ARE taking care of the kids?”

I know as citizens it is out duty that we go to every extent to make CPS do their job and help these kids in Central WV that are being taken from their homes. It is time to CLEAN HOUSE at CPS!

For too long Child Protective Services have stolen children for profit. The parents are not allowed due process, not allowed to question witnesses or face their accuser.  In West Virginia the parents are railroaded, lied about — and their children are bought and sold like a commodity!

Families are torn apart, destroyed and forever changed by a government agency that has no scruples, no morals and no standards, because that’s how they always do it in Gilmer County!

 The West Virginia CPS have no one to make sure they don’t abuse the very system they were put in place to protect. Money has become the issue not the children and not the family. This is just the beginning of the misery many people see down in Crooked County down by the Crooked River!

There are several excellent WV single parent grants available to single moms and families who qualify.These social programs help to pay for all the necessities of setting up a good home for children including providing shelter, food, and medical care. West Virginia has been immune, so far, from the bloody episodes of gang violence that have marred the big cities from New York to Los Angeles.Yet, there are disturbing signs of something evil that might lurk beneath a tranquil surface and ultimately rear its ugly head. Young women in West Virginia, at the state capital in Charleston are selling themselves to businessmen on the street during the day time to pay for their OXY habit and that of their boyfriends too.Gangs are also becoming more of a problem in WV and Mercer and McDowell counties are listed among eight West Virginia counties with the highest numbers of gang activity, according a report on gang violence recently released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Kanawha is one of eight West Virginia counties with the most gang activity, according to a report issued last fall by the FBI. The report, released every two years, tracks the estimated 1.4 million members that make up the nation’s more than 33,000 gangs. Young people in WV are falling victim to drug abuse and gang affiliations and violence, by starting to catch up to the paved roads of  gang trends from bigger cities.

Maybe if all the CPS workers lost their jobs they could get on welfare their damn selves and see how these kids feel about the poor service and abandonment by society.

Here is a personal account of bad actions from a citizen of Wood County down in Parkersburg…

The Children of the Power Elite like this young woman are subject to abuse too, and sometimes that is for the lack of adult supervision, just like at the raucous orgy that jumped off the 2011 school year out hwy 33 at the home of Shelly Morris DeMarino, where a daughter of the Church of Ike was raped and the result of that rape was a pregnancy and an abortion all while underage, and also the basketball coach got to have his way sexually with one of the star BB Ball players on the Lady Titans Basketball team. It was Bitchen BOBCATS BABY just like BEACH BLANKET BINGO when the Butcher Bitches Broke Bad Bumping Butts during the Summer of Love on the CalPatty Press!

“I am a former employee of the CPS unit at the Jackson County DHHR and can personally attest to the many allegations against them. Nikki Harris has no morals. She will and has covered up huge mistakes and illegal behavior on the part of one CPS worker alone. She and the worker should have been fired had the CSM at the time not have been so close to retirement and therefore didn’t want to “stir the pot.” Also, I know that many of the CPS workers would sign themselves out on home visits and never return. Instead of doing home visits they would run personal errands or anything else non-work related. However, because of the irresponsible nature of their supervisor, Mrs. Harris, no questions were asked. Most of the workers in that unit were not there to do their job, they were there because that was one of the only jobs in the building where they could do whatever they pleased without punishment. I will say that the only worker in that unit who was an honest, hardworking, genuine and caring person was the CPS case aide. I am not sure if she is still there or not. Most of the decent employees at that place have since moved on to other positions elsewhere.”

“The CPS pick on the families who are not in danger, and need the  least help and then, help destroy the families  who the CPS leave in danger. The CPS is a self serving entity and just as self serving as the CHURCH of IKE and all the power elite in Gilmer County, West Virginia!”

“Jackson County CPS is horrible!!!! They do not protect children!!! They refuse to act until a child is hurt or dead. One mother I know has been reported repeatedly for drug abuse, alcoholism, beating her teen daughters and nothing has been done because apparently they are too lazy to do anything for these girls who are suffering mentally and physically. This office needs to be investigated before someone else gets hurt!”

CPS in rural West Virginia has long made a business of stealing children. Families who are new to the area do not know that, however. They are attracted to the “People that Shine” in the Glenville Democrat, the bullshit rhetoric about the worst school academically in the entire state of West Virginia, oh, and also, the beauty of the area.

When local politicians or media want to stop discussion on any subject or disagreement with information they have presented as “Fact” and validate lies, criminal actions and other misconduct, the first thing they do is label those seeking the truth as “Conspirators!” These so called elites from Gilmer County have covered up countless rapes, and some of those rapes were victims under the age of 18 like the rape that happened that night up hwy 33 at the home of Shelly Morris DeMarino -the same night the GCHS Basketball coach Bobby Duvall had sex with one of the players on the team! “Where was the CPS in Gilmer County when the rapes and sex with high school teachers was something you couldn’t talk about or mention in Glenville — a secret agreement was put in action by members of the Church of Ike – a group of public officials & politicians for reasons of the pursuance of policies that must be kept SECRET awful sexual crimes occurred with minor children which they dare not mention in public.”

 If the new people to the area knew about the horrors of Glenville, and Crooked County many  would never have taken the job at the federal prison or settle anyplace in Gilmer County, which has  a very corrupt law enforcement and court system in the state of WV. The County is run by a Board of Commissioners who are constantly screwing the citizen with levies and bond issues geared toward making the rich in the area richer and the poor people of this part of Central WV even poorer.

Children are a commodity for which there is a steady and growing market both in the United States and across the world, so WV will grap their piece of the action just like they did the marijuana trade and the PILL MILLS that rule the state and have even effected the elite with rampant prescription drug abuse.

Child sex-slaves arrive in Europe and elsewhere from unspecified locations, even West Virginia! Children taken from homes routinely end up in the porn industry, believe it or not. It has been going on for many years but since it did not impact most of us it was easy to ignore.

But as counties across the state have cycled down into bankruptcy like Gilmer County has, the need to pump harder for every buck to be made has become more compelling. Today it is not just the most vulnerable who are targeted, but families that would before have been passed over as too well connected that are currently also in jeopardy from all the crime, dope and corrupt law enforcement.

The Butcher Bitches paved the way for underage drinking being condoned many years ago & now it has been a family tradition of sorts in Crooked County down by the Crooked River! Beer Bong Bitches Breaking Bad!

Here is a latest comment from a reader of the many Secret Seven Coalition articles …

The last RAPE VICTIM from GSC that was discovered by the Secret Seven Coalition, said, “NO FEMALE is SAFE at GSC! The last rape that took place in Goodwin Hall had difficulty in the courts because DAN BELL the Chief of Public Safety made sure the rape kit evidence was immediately lost, but the court was recently notified that law enforcement went over an above to make sure there was no evidence and if the parents of the victim did not speak up and contact the Secret Seven Coalition, then mostly the public would have never known about another horrible rape in GOODWIN hall, but then RAPE is common in Gilmer County, especially since there have been multiple rapes and no convictions.The crime statistics that exist for Gilmer County, West Virginia are a complete LIE and fabrication, if the public only knew the truth they would be shouting to bring in the national guard!

“Let’s see the raucous party up Rt. 33 did not happen, the Charleston romp didn’t either with all the pomp and booze supplied by the Gerry Hough household, and the sexual molestation by the Coaching Staff in which the Gilmer Sheriff Mickey Metz does not have the qualifications for! What about CPS? Where in the HELL is the CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES when children need protected from the METZ GANG and the lawless Hough Starletts! In WV what the hell, where is the CPS? Where are they to protect the children, they steal the children. Why not do a story about what Gerry Hough, Tara Kennedy, the County Commission and the big muckitty mucks do to our children, by way of torture, denial and mistreatment. As for everyone questioning what happened to the kids that were assaulted by the Metz gang. If one of those parents or someone that knows the truth calls in to CPS and pushes the issue you might find some resolution there. However, I have a much diminished view of that organization but they seem to be able to run their own witch hunt when given just the right amount of information but it would have to be someone who knows and is aware of the facts. As well if Mrs.

Rape at Glenville State College is now as Common Place as IKE MORRIS eating at Audrey’s family restaurant in the heart of Crooked County down by the Crooked River at 7pm on a Tuesday night.

Butcher had knowledge or report had been made to her then she too would be legally liable as a mandated reporter to have filed a CPS report.

Failure to do so would make her guilty by association and therefore place her job in Jeopardy. I think she should be in Jeopardy, in fact I think she should be in a zoo for outdated back woods feeble minded whore raising nitwit bitches, but they probably couldn’t get all that on the sign in front of her cage!! YOU MAKE ME NAH SHA’S NAY SHA!”

The PARTY ANIMAL LADY TITANS HOST DRUNKEN BASH AT THE V-BALL TOURNEY down at the state capitial — “They all drank Thursday night, went to the tournament Friday and then the real party started.
The boy friend of Crystal Metz was so drunk and fucked up on drugs, that nobody cared when he ventured off, and then what he was trying to do to the girls by pulling their pants and panties down and then trying to play with their precious feminine secret places!
Another one of Gerry Hough’s daughters, Lauren Hough, Carly’s Lil Sis was named as a chief player in all of the sexual exchanges and drunk shit and such.
The boyfriend of Crystal Metz was going room to room and in hallways trying to get the girls naked and play box banging bingo the Butcher Bitches way!
“In one incident dude hid in the bathtub in the ladies facilities and when the girls went to use the bathroom then he jumped out swinging his penis to and fro just like they do down in Crooked County down by the Crooked River!”

Local psychiatrists, psychologists, attorneys and physicians become little more than hired guns for authorities trying to take children from their parents into foster care.

Mickey Metz is not qualified to serve as a coach on the Volleyball team. He does not have the credentials to fill that position at the high school, but Gilmer County is so corrupt that even after the document Metz used to qualify to be on the ballot to run for magistrate was proven a phony, Metz still was allowed to be on the ballot against the laws of West Virginia, and even allowed to run for office on primary election day, but Metz only received a small amount of votes and came in last place. By the time the election was held, the FREE PRESS had already published the document Metz brought forward and it was a FAKE!!

As the fear fades and justifiable anger comes to the forefront falsely accused parents are shining a spotlight on a family court system normally shrouded in secrecy. This raises the crucial question of who should be allowed to determine the most fundamental rights of parents to bring up their own children and what standards are used to make such a serious and life altering decision. Who is truly working in the best interest of the children?  Many times it may be the parent.

“Another filthy CPS pedophile busted  ….”will most likely be an upcoming headline on some future Revenge of the Ghost Wolf article.  Mark Levriers a CPS worker had 23 years of access to vulnerable, defenseless children, before he was found out and caught for child molestation!

There are many more Mark Levriers in CPS, count on it. CPS is a magnet for perverts and pedophiles. Even a braindead pedophile knows you don’t have to hang around playgrounds = you can get a job at CPS and get paid to be a pervert, just like Gerry Hough gets two paychecks from the state of West Virginia to engage in criminal activities, like subornation of perjury and felony conspiracy, and even white collar crimes to help out his friend Timothy B and R Terry Butcher!

Children, the latest victims being snatched in broad daylight by CPS, should be a serious concern for law enforcement agencies. We must have better coordination among state and local agencies of all levels to ensure that children are unharmed and not victimized by our own institutions. They must put forth better efforts to ensure that the price of children as individual human beings is not being calculated in cold cash.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — More than $1 million in federal funds have been approved for West Virginia to encourage more adoptions of children in foster care.

“The funding was announced in September of 2010 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The department said the adoption incentive awards are intended to improve states’ child welfare programs, but for many it was just a license to steal!!”

We must be concerned because this could well be a precursor of graver problems like child sex trafficking,  and other illegal operations which use children to  commit crimes.  The local CPS must take steps, in coordination with law enforcement, society at large and the media, to warn the public plus assist and advise parents on how to protect their children against not only street abduction by criminals but also by legal criminals of their making like they have in Gilmer County down by the Crooked River!

To be a high school coach of any sport there are certain requirements that need to be met and Sheriff Mickey Metz did not meet these requirements.
A. ASEP Coaches Education Program – Complete our 14 hour course with
a WVSSAC instructor and pass all 3 tests with a minimum score of 80%.
B. Local School Board approval (must be a high school graduate or GED)
METZ DOES NOT HAVE A GED OR HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA SO SHOULD NOT BE PARTICIPATING AS A COACH BUT THAT IS HOW THEY DO IT IN A LAWLESS GILMER COUNTY DOWN BY THE CROOKED RIVER!!

What is happening here is not an oddity and unfortunately it is not new. Children are being taken from their families prematurely or unnecessarily because federal formulas give states a strong financial incentive to do so rather than provide services to keep families together.  Taking a child and paying a middle class family to care for them has fast become the latest form of middle class welfare.  All available help goes to foster and adoptive parents.  About the only parents the federal government won’t help indefinitely are birth parents. What’s wrong with this picture?

Laws give bounties to states of up to $8,000 or more per child for every adoption they finalize over a baseline number. But the injustices don’t stop there, because in order to get that money, states have to have children to take away and place them – and therein lay the incentive to falsely accuse parents of harming their children and to forcibly remove children even when there is no evidence to do so.

MARTINSBURG — Just a short few months ago Louis Palma was wrestling with more than just 40-plus vacancies for Child Protective Services workers across the state.

In addition to the 10.8 percent vacancy rate for CPS staff, another 17 percent of the CPS work force has been on the job for less than a year, Palma said. Many of those hired to work for CPS don’t hold degrees in social work but in fields deemed related: criminal justice, sociology, education or psychology, Palma said.

“CPS is doing a job they have never been trained to do.  They are investigating people who have never been charged, calling them child abusers, taking kids away and getting paid to do it. The money that follows a child abuse accusation and subsequent placement of the so-called endangered children into foster care or adoption is the real catalyst for the epidemic of child abuse accusations!”

Lizzie Butcher could break any law bang any box , suck any…well you get the idea … and there was never any consequence for underage drinking or bad behavior back in the day. And when you ask where was the CPS in those days? …You could get laughed out of town, for why should they care about abuse, or child abuse of any kind if it isn’t endorsed by the elite and labeled especially for poor folk. Butcher Bitches fun shown above sucking hard to get the juice to make you loose for summer fun in the VILLE where they live by the “Power of Darkness!”

And there is no incentive for any physician or anybody involved to be intellectually honest in court about this because the law also gives them immunity if they’re wrong. So what happens is that the minute CPS is involved – or the second the EMTs are called (for example, in sudden infant death, choking or alleged shaken baby cases), parents are already labeled as child abusers. They never had a chance.

 Families are coerced into participating by intimidation and the threat of losing their children. In return for fraudulently collected profits, the contracted “vendors” (physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists) provide trumped up “evidence” of child maltreatment to support the claim that they need to keep the child in foster care. In return for this they receive more federal funding. Now this is truly job security.

Nothing in our life experience is more devastating than the abrupt, brutal, and unwarranted forced separation from family and loved ones by strangers. The parent-child bond is our strongest instinct, taking precedent over all else. To have this bond severed by state agents who possess unhindered power, and give no thought or consideration to the fear, anxiety, and trauma that their actions cause, is a crime against humanity.

Removal of non-abused children is an act of emotional and psychological terrorism. CPS does not follow established law and policy. They face no consequences for their illegal behavior. Law enforcement routinely submits to the whims of social workers as do family court and magistrate judges in the majority of cases. Children failed by the system have died while in the protective custody of the State, in the care of CPS and in foster care. Citizens should NOT be removed from their homes and family members based on nothing more than hearsay.

May you never experience an introduction to that Kafka-esque world of state child-snatching.  It illustrates so many of the reasons why, hidden behind its self-protective wall of secrecy, this ruthless and corrupt system is fast becoming one of the most serious problems faced by families living at poverty level today.

The victim that was raped in Goodwin Hall at GSC in the Suite occupied by Jordan Opie Watkins contends that she was not prescribed or knowingly took benzodiazepine which she tested positive for at Stonewall Jackson when evidence for the rape kit was obtained. A mixture of high proof alcohol and date rape drugs was mixed by some other students at GSC and the last thing she remembers is sitting with the cup of alcohol mixed from over 100 proof grain-alcohols mixed by Jayde Layne and Jordan Bennett students at GSC. The next thing she remembers is waking up and regaining consciousness nude with five member of the SOB fraternity standing over her in the shower.

“No Child Left Behind Says CPS!”

Parents have experienced that in these “Secret Courts” that are ran and administered by the same people that are taking the children, that it is in fact a Kangaroo or Tribunal Court where there is no justice and no help. There is virtually no possible way the parents can win. In these courts, parents are placed with Gag Orders, instructed to ‘Not discuss the case’, this way, the social workers, crooked probation officers like Tara Kennedy and dishonest prosecutors like Gerald B Hough can conduct their business outside of scrutiny, and they can lie on the reports and to the judges like Richard A Facemire — free to perjure themselves without question, after all who will complain? Parents are often not even allowed in the court rooms while their cases are being discussed. All the people involved are playing the parents like a fiddle. Social Workers may be very nice, claiming they are there to “help” and they are sure ‘you’ll probably get your children back’, however each time the “defendant” expresses any type of conflict with them or their decisions; something to either expose them, or to prove innocence, they threaten that they will and can “put the child up for adoption”.

Three-year-old Aliayah Lunsford was was last seen in her home around 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning last Sept. 24th wearing Dora pajamas and a pink princess sweatshirt. She is about 3 feet tall and weighs about 35 pounds. She is missing her four front teeth and has shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes. Is she in the river or taken by the CPS and sold into adoption, in another state?

The children are being taken at an alarming rate, and although they are only investigating ONE child…. they will take them all, regardless of the circumstances. They are stealing the children legally. It is reported that Social Workers have no problems falsifying documents or lying about parents and extended family members.  They may threaten the parents into so called “services” such as parenting classes or anger management which by parents taking these services is an automatic admission of guilt (even if they have done nothing); Many Social Workers will do whatever it takes to ensure your child WILL be placed up for adoption. It’s like they’re bounty hunters.

Children may also be placed and deemed “special needs” ensuring more Federal Funding and Non Profit Grants for the authorities. It has been documented that babies as young as a few months old are considered to have “mental issues” and are given strong psychotropic drugs. With each issue that can be found (or created) the state and Federal Government gets more money, not just from the demand for more taxes, but also from non-profit grants one may donate to.

The Governments motto “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND” was meant to be a slogan for better education.  Today, “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND seems to have become the slogan used by Social Services and CPS. No Child Left Behind, means that the Social Workers, the State, and Federal Government including Non Profit groups, Adoption Agencies and all their agents and affiliates have a guaranteed income, and it seems the economics involved is not trickle down.

The state of West Virginia and the office of the CPS have been known to parade our children in front of adoptive parents like cattle at an auction. They do it under the disguise of fun and games. “Come and pick out a child” is the mantra.

“Why not put them on an auction block and sell them to the highest bidder. These children are innocent pawns in a game of greed, politics and corruption. If you don’t believe it is going on in the state of West Virginia, think again!”

Can you imagine the hurt, anger, frustration and guilt these children feel when they are alienated from their own flesh and blood, treated like a lost dog from the pound and then are not “picked” for one reason or another. This is a travesty in the worst possible way.

Talk about illegal adoptions- This is just one of the many reasons the corrupt office of the CPS in West Virginia snatches children from home of parents who are uneducated, poor and who don’t know the system and the crime that goes on in its underbelly. It is time to stop the madness, stop the corruption and stop the selling of our children.

Where were you When I needed you Ms CPS?

Well you could not be found!

What can I do Oh I believed in you

You’re running me around

Well you can take it as a warning

Or take it anyway you like

It’s the lightning not the thunder of the SS!

You never know where it’s gonna strike

Our love’s in jeopardy baby!

By Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor for Revenge of the Ghost Wolf

NEWS FLASH!!! A telephone wire tap was found on the phone of Ruth Mitchell of Linn, WV by the phone company Wednesday May 27th!!!

wiretap

WHO PUT IT THERE, was it the State Police, who have a long history of corruption in Gilmer County, or was it the dumb as Goober Pyle numb nuts Sheriffs office?!

WILKE PEREZ STAR GSC FOOTBALL PLAYER — ALLEGED RAPIST — THAT NEVER DID A DAY IN JAIL FOR RAPE — IS GOING TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR MORTGAGE FRAUD IN MIAMI FLA!!!

All this and more coming up in THIS ARTICLE of Revenge of the Ghost Wolf!

If YOU are looking for corruption, you have come to the right place Gilmer County West Virginia, known to the locals as Crooked County. Yeah these bitches down here are out and outright criminals. Now we are talking about more than half of the people that work at the courthouse too, the City Police, the State Police, but especially the Gilmer County Sheriff’s office. In FACT the Gilmer County Sheriff is the biggest JOKE of them all!  They are the Crooked County ASS CLOWNS!!

Glenville State College will be getting a big surprise soon when the Wilkie Perez RAPE CASE investigation gets reopened by the Council of Concerned Citizens. GSC has no idea how close they came to being made a NATIONAL MOCKERY of for their handling of sexual assault cases at the college in Glenville.

A major network came very close to picking up the story and told the President of the Council of Concerned Citizens Dan Bingman that they would keep their eyes on developments there. GSC is number ONE in RAPE for WV colleges with multiple arrests and NO CONVICTIONS due to a very (censored), dishonest (censored) of a (censored), poorly educated prosecutor by the name of Gerald B Hough. Recently the CCC interviewed the victim of one of Glenville State Colleges’ most famous RAPE CASES involving Wilkie Perez a GSC football player.

Glenville State College in Gilmer County, West Virginia is near dead last in academics in the State, but leads all the rest of the colleges for the number of alleged sexual assaults with ZERO convictions!!! Since the infamous Erik Davis RAPE case in 2006 more than 20 sexual assaults have met with NO CONVICTIONS due to the fact the county prosecutor Gerald B Hough a ferpa violator has no interest in prosecuting a rape case for the reason of possibly damaging the image of the college sometimes known as the FRIGHT HOUSE on the hill.

RGW will soon have a full story on how the victim was treated by Glenville State College, and I warn you now it is a HORROR story not suited for the ears of children. AS FAR AS FORMER GSC FOOTBALL PLAYER WILKIE PEREZ GOES … ONCE A CRIMINAL ALWAYS A CRIMINAL. Luis Michael Mendez, 44, and Wilkie Perez, 39, each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud before U.S. District Court Judge Darrin P. Gayles in the Southern District of Florida.

In their pleas, both defendants admitted that they participated in a scheme to place straw buyers in condominium units owned by real estate developers who are members of Mendez’s immediate family in return for a share of the profits. As part of Mendez’s plea agreement, he admitted participating in a scheme to sell condominium units in developments controlled by members of his immediate family to straw buyers who would neither own nor be financially responsible for the properties. Mendez conspired with two Florida mortgage brokers to finance the fraudulent transactions with loans obtained by submitting false loan applications and supporting documentation.

Glenville State College has had several unsolved and unpunished rapes since 2005 but the latest rape of an honor student from Wood County, on the Promise Scholarship program was the rape that was the most brutal and involved several fraternity members of the SOB fraternity, and the SS is seeking to let the Alumni Association know about the cover up by Dan Bell former head of public safety from GSC -- and the Gilmer County Sheriffs Department is ALSO responsible for several RAPE COVER UPS at GSC!!

Mendez also admitted submitting false loan applications in his own name to purchase a number of properties. Following the purchase of the units, the seller funneled a portion of the sale proceeds to shell corporations controlled by Mendez. In total, Mendez admitted that his conduct caused a loss of over $3 million. According to court papers, Perez was a licensed mortgage broker who owned Kinetic Mortgage Group, Inc., a mortgage brokerage company in Miami, Florida.

U.S.A. v. Luis Mendez, et. al. (14-cr-20160 SDFL)

Former GSC FOOTBALL STAR QB Wilke Perez admitted that he and Luis Mendez, one of Mendez’s immediate family members who owned and controlled the real estate developments, entered into an agreement in which Perez arranged for straw buyers to obtain financing to purchase units controlled by Luis Mendez by, among other things, submitting to financial institutions loan applications and supporting documents containing false information about buyers’ employment, income, and assets.

Rape at Glenville State College is now as Common Place as IKE MORRIS eating at Audrey's family restaurant in the heart of Crooked County down by the Crooked River, where you can take that subject up with IKE MORRIS owner of WACO oil for breakfast sometime, or discuss over dinner sometime late in the evening on Tuesdays, you’ll find old Ike there. Ike more or less owns the college, even though it is suppose to be state run, and IKE pretty much calls all the shots there and picks who is on the board of Governors. The Governor would never take a chance on pissing IKE off because of the generous campaign contributions and all.

Rape at Glenville State College is now as Common Place as IKE MORRIS eating at Audrey’s family restaurant in the heart of Crooked County down by the Crooked River, where you can take that subject up with IKE MORRIS owner of WACO oil for breakfast sometime, or discuss over dinner sometime late in the evening on Tuesdays, you’ll find old Ike there.

Luis Mendez paid kickbacks to alleged rapist football star from Glenville State College Wilke Perez out of the loan proceeds following the closings on the properties. Perez, in turn, used a portion of the kickback payments to compensate straw buyers for the use of their identities and credit information. In total, Perez admitted to obtaining more than $2.5 million in fraudulent loans. Mendez and Perez were indicted by a federal grand jury on March 31, 2014,

Lets talk about the President of the Gilmer County Commission LARRY CHAPMAN, he may be the new President of the Commission for the reason that the old PRESIDENT of the Gilmer County Commission BRIAN KENNEDY GOT BUSTED FOE A DUI last JULY 19th, 2014 and not ONE FUCKING THING has been done about it in the Gilmer County Courts.

This reporter talked to Linda James the magistrate clerk a while back and she said both WOLFE and Magistrate Skinner recused themselves, and they have been unable to get another magistrate from Braxton County to come over and hear the case.

WHAT A CROCK OF BULLSHIT by the Gilmer County Courts.  Gerry Hough the dishonest son of a bitch prosecutor that is a documented LIAR is letting the case languish in the courts so that when one year is up the case could be dismissed for lack of prosecution, or the matter could be reduced by a guilty plea to a lessor charge. Whatever happens there you can bet, it will be a SHADY DEAL at best!

Lets review what we get when a real crook like CHAPMAN ASS CLOWN is in charge!

Remember when the bond issue for the college dorms was passed by the Gilmer County Commission, with Larry Chapman President, when there was little or no public input sought?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
We remember it well, they all left the one meeting they had on the issue to go down the street to get legal advice from Butcher and Butcher (Timothy B Butcher, President of GSC Housing Corp and R Terry Butcher, Board of Governors at GSC) as to whether or not to sign it and the Commission signed the application that day?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember the issues involving the Gilmer County Recreation Center and the Golf Course?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember a series of no-bid contracts?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember the Gilmer County Commission with Chapman in the lead denying that any election complaint had ever been filed or that the County Clerk was being sued in Federal Court the entire time a Federal Election was in progress?
…and all that denial turned out to be a new river in Glenville or something for it all turned out to be a lie!

Wilkie Perez accused of RAPE by Anita Philiips-Wiseman who recently told Lawrence Smith from the Council of Concerned Citizens that Glenville State College treated her like a piece of trash after the rape and many faculty and staff turned on her for telling the shocking truth about Wilke Perez the star Quarter Back. Wilkie Perez had Gerald B Hough for an attorney who was cited for a FERPA VIOLATION by using the victims school records against her in an illegal manner. Gerry Hough had to write a letter to the Office of Disciplinary Council saying he LIED the first time they questioned him. RGW is in possession of the document proving the Gilmer County Prosecutor LIED officially to a government agency, was fined 400 dollars and was caught at it like a bitch.  Hough should have had his license to practice law pulled on the spot for that stupid stunt.

Well, that was all Larry Chapman!
Remember that the Gilmer County Economic/Industrial Development Association (GCEDA) has been appointed by the Commission as the authority for economic development in Gilmer County and that Larry Chapman served on that organizations’ board as President/Vice President, or one officer or another over the years while in the elected office of Gilmer County Commissioner?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman!
Well what is it that is all Larry Chapman now?

WHAT IS ALL LARRY CHAPMAN NOW IS HE LET THE COTTRILL ESTATE BE APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION WHEN LINDA HUFF THE FIDUCIARY COMMISSIONER FOUND MULTIPLE FAULTS WITH THE ACCOUNTING, SO MUCH SO IT SHOOK HER ETHICS OF BEING A CHRISTIAN LIKE A RAG DOLL!!!

Did Larry Chapman ALLOW the home of RUTH MITCHELL in LINN,  WV to be Wire Tapped?!

CROOKED COUNTY ASS CLOWNS CHAPMAN, GERWIG, HOUGH, KENNEDY,WHEELER And A Gaggle of CROOKED Law Enforcement Officers Are Down in CROOKED COUNTY Down by the CROOKED RIVER ACTING LIKE A FOOL!!

Elected Gilmer County Sheriff LARRY GERWIG takes the CAKE for being one worthless puppet son of a bitch Sheriff.

Larry was compliant with bringing in false witnesses in the Travesty of Justice case, and was fully compliant with false testimony from Roanna Rafferty regarding 1/6th of 155 acres she said she owned, but title opinion years later proved SHE DID NOT OWN. Gerwig was fully involved with that conspiracy to LIE in a Gilmer County Circuit Court and may someday have to pay the price for that crime for there is NO STATUTE of LIMITATIONS for any FELONY in the state of West Virginia.

GERWIG has been active in covering up the Cottrill Estate Murder and has had no idea some real professional detectives have looked into facts involving the case. Although, those names cannot be used currently they would be willing to testify against Gerwig in a federal court.

Gilmer County Sheriff Larry Gerwig was recently served an FOIA request by Council of Concerned Citizens member and Secret 7 Coalition Major Sir Lawrence Smith investigative reporter that also writes for the Gilmer Free Press… this PDF shows the letter sent to Gerwig.

GilCo Sheriff homicide investigations FOIA

What Gerwig DOES NOT KNOW is that Deputy Mike Wheeler is caught on tape saying he had conducted NO INVESTIGATION of the murder of Willard Cottrill before November 18th  2014.

That fact stated by Wheeler, if used in court, is enough to bring actions against Gilmer County Prosecutor Gerald B Hough and Gilmer County Sheriff Larry Gerwig for LYING about TWO PREVIOUS FOIA requests sent. They are both now liable for civil action, in which it would be ALL LARRY CHAPMAN and the bureau of risk management to pay for….

Here is the answer by Gerwig for the latest FOIA sent.

Gerwig 5-15-15 FOIA reply

SO NOW WE KNOW DEPUTY MIKE WHEELER IS A SMOKE SCREEN FULL OF BULLSHIT PRESENTED BY THE GILMER COUNTY PROSECUTOR GERALD B HOUGH AND THE RESULTS OF THIS FOIA FOR THE PEOPLE OF GILMER COUNTY BY THE PEOPLE OF GILMER COUNTY PROVE ONCE AND FOR ALL GERALD B HOUGH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR BEING ONE LYING SON OF A BITCH ON TWO PREVIOUS FOIA REQUESTS INVOLVING THE WILLARD COTTRILL MURDER.

NOW WE KNOW ONCE AND FOR ALL SHERIFF GERWIG IS A PUPPET ACTING THE  FOOL FOR THE BIGGER FOOL — THE GILMER COUNTY PROSECUTOR GERALD B HOUGH.

One thing is for sure,  when it comes to the matter of FOIA requests both Gerwig and Hough play the Crooked County FOOL!!

The leaders of the Secret Seven Coalition were recently told that Janet Sprouse of Glenville could tell us ALL ABOUT the drug use of Gerald B Hough, for the reason, she  just may be involved with that greasy, skinny  Crooked County Crook! Here is a recent photo that can allegedly tell us all we need to know about the Prosecutor from Crooked County

The leaders of the Secret Seven Coalition were recently told that Janet Sprouse of Glenville could tell us ALL ABOUT the drug use of Gerald B Hough, for the reason, she just may be involved with that greasy, skinny Crooked County Crook! Here is Janet in a recent photo. She can allegedly tell us all we need to know about the Prosecutor from Crooked County

On the subject of Gerald B Hough who often acts the FOOL there has been rumor of his illegal drug use and that we need to talk to JANET SPROUSE to find out more of his involved illegal buying of drugs for his own habit. We have heard of Gerry Hough’s drug use from his country singer first wife that never really made it as a singer, or in the country music business, but she has some wild tales to tell about Gerry’s hashish smoking days, and that was before he ran off to Israel to live in a commune for Jewish people who are not necessarily big fans of us Christian folk.

In this article please find a rather recent photo of Janet Spouse (above) and a photo of her very revealing tattoo. (below)

Is that the familiar tatoo the Gilmer County Prosecutor see's every time he goes down on his new GAL PAL... well this belongs to that girl Janet we have been asked to talk to about the drug use allegedly going on down at the courthouse involving the Gilmer County Prosecutor Gerald B Hough!!  Hey Gerry are you blackmailing this girl?

Hey Gerry are you blackmailing this girl?

We hear that Tamara Swirly Tongue Stalnaker, Gerald B Hough’s wife, is not really into banging Gerry anymore!

Is it because that DICK doesn’t smell right? Could be! In fact we hear that Tamara can’t really stand her husband much these days.

Do y’all think that is why Gerry is a screwing around again like he was in the days before the FRED HILL MURDER back in December of 2009?

One thing for SURE is  …Gerry Hough sure plays the Crooked County FOOL!

I ain’t no country boy, I’m just a homesick man.

Crooked County sure is pretty, but I’ll leave it all behind,
This is my decision, I’m comin’ home to stay this time.

Because the CROOKED COUNTY ASS CLOWNS SURE
PLAY the FOOL…

…which makes me WANNA BE A  FOOL for the CITY!!

FUCK, any place but that Crooked as Fuck Crooked County West Virginia.

Breathin’ all the clean air, sittin’ in the sun,
When I get my train fare, I’ll get up and run.

Because I am a FOOL for the CITY!!
