White nightmares

    Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
    Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
    Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
    And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.

Tight security for backpacker murder-accused

Murder accused Shannon Brent Flewellen was handcuffed and escorted by three police officers when he appeared in Westport District Court today. The 28-year-old Nelson fisherman and a co-offender are accused of murdering Korean backpacker Jae Hyeon Kim in 2003. Flewellen was remanded without plea to appear in Westport District Court on July 24 by Judge Noel Walsh. Duty solicitor Doug Taffs said that it was too problematic at this stage to set depositions and pre-depositions dates. There was no application for bail. Judge Walsh confirmed his remand in custody. Six bonehead supporters left the court when Flewellen was escorted away…

Flewellen has had previous brushes with the law, escaping from a police van in January 2005 before being re-captured.

Two indicted in ’98 homeless slayings in Tampa

TAMPA — Federal authorities have charged two more members of a hate group with the 1998 beating deaths of two homeless men in Tampa, according to a grand jury indictment unsealed Tuesday. James Robertson, 28, and Corey Hulse, 24, formerly of Tampa, have each been charged with two counts of a violent crime in aid of racketeering to commit murder. If convicted, they face life in prison. Robertson has been detained on the charges, and Hulse remains a fugitive, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors described Robertson and Hulse as members of the white racist organization Tampa Blood and Honour, a bonehead group “whose members espoused the belief that white persons of Aryan descent were the superior race.” Robertson and Hulse are accused of helping at least two other men murder Alfred Williams and Richard Arseneau on Sept. 31, 1998. Kenneth Hoover, 35, and Charles Marovskis, 29, two other members of the group, have pleaded guilty in the slayings. Authorities said the men beat Williams to death with a tire iron and used an ax to kill Arseneau in a wooded lot. Prosecutors said the killings took place as part of an initiation rite.

Blood & Honour is a proscribed organisation in Germany and Spain and exists under a legal cloud in Belgium, Holland and Portugal, but operates quite happily in Australia.

    How could you pass up the headline “Whightmares?”

    What are your feelings towards people like Shannon Brent; how do Anarchists respond to imprisonment?

    How do I feel? Hostile: he’s a bonehead. And a violent one, by all accounts. As for imprisonment, I view modern prisons as being a ‘tragic necessity’, which should be abolished, if possible, and other social mechanisms devised and implemented in order to deal with anti-social acts, especially those committed by likely sociopaths such as Flewellen…

    It would seem that the amount of destructiveness to be found in individuals is proportionate to the amount to which expansiveness of life is curtailed. By this we do not refer to individual frustrations of this or that instinctive desire but to the thwarting of the whole of life, the blockage of spontaneity of the growth and expression of man’s sensuous, emotional, and intellectual capacities. Life has an inner dynamism of its own; it tends to grow, to be expressed, to be lived . . . the drive for life and the drive for destruction are not mutually interdependent factors but are in a reversed interdependence. The more the drive towards life is thwarted, the stronger is the drive towards destruction; the more life is realised, the less is the strength of destructiveness. Destructiveness is the outcome of unlived life. Those individual and social conditions that make for suppression of life produce the passion for destruction that forms, so to speak, the reservoir from which particular hostile tendencies — either against others or against oneself — are nourished… ~ Eric Fromm, The Fear of Freedom

    Love the clips, the Hard Skin one was shit hot! Thanks also for the e-mail, definitely food for thought. Seems that many hypocrites swim in the masses pool… I know of a few people that once had dreadlocked ‘hawks and class war patches on their pants, that now get around in an Oi uniform, claiming no political affiliation, yet defend the ‘right’ of bones to partake in the crawl! Needless to say, they fucking hate me now…lol…once they thought I was just misguided, now I am their enemy! Hahahaha, fuck em.
