Kelly Ayotte caught on KingCast video: Refuses to discuss Casey Sherman's book and movie "Bad Blood," threatens to arrest reporter.

This is Bowfinger or Bad Blood 5. Kelly Ayotte and her inner circle of hegemonic warlords gave me the bum's rush and threatened me with arrest even though it was a public event and I offered to pay the $10. That's because she has a history of ignoring Right-to-Know, she never saw to it that a 2006 Report issued, and she was nailed in this Ethics Investigation.

Meanwhile someone asked if I was a bigot, and I duly informed them that I am not, but I asked whether Kelly Ayotte is a bigot, given her close association with fired Jaffrey Police Chief Martin J. Dunn, who:

1. Failed to help blacks feel comfortable in Jaffrey, NH, according to a local business owner.
2. Laughed a hate mail that accused me of being a "coconut head racist... you're about to be bubba's bitch... better get dat vasoline ready." That was during Kelly Ayotte's failed attempt to prosecute me for Unauthorized Practice of Law, just after her idiot LE friend Martin Dunn nol-prossed a bogus case of Attempted Felony Extortion against me after I exposed police abuse under his watch.

It's all here in the seminal Martin Dunn/Kelly Ayotte post, which contains links to last week's NH Supreme Court Pleadings. Seems Dunn and his crooked lawyer Dan Mullen lied about me and several other things that the Court is reviewing now, having corrected some of the lies in an online opinion. Mullen, by they way, was Kelly's waterboy during the failed Planned Parenthood case where Attorney fees were assessed against her.

And pity-party Marty who actually got disability awards pending Supreme Court review claims that I helped contribute to his fail mental and emotional state, even though it was his own peers who called him a "Slime Bag" and "Dipshitz."


But Dunn is Kelly Ayotte's friend and so too is multiple felon Gregory Floyd. While the links have mysteriously disappeared and I'll have to repost the documents, take a look at what she hid about Gregory Floyd's multiple felon past, and how she never explained how the windshield bullet got in Liko Kenney's windshield while clearing the currently-incarcerated creep for the murder of Liko Kenney in just 24 hours.

And look what was really going on with Bully Cop Norman Bruce McKay, look at his history, and Sergeant Mark Taylor admonished him for his dangerous attitude, this is why the NH Legislature refused to name a road way after him, watch my testimony and that of others at SB154 hearings.

Progressive Civil Rights lawyers choose KingCast, check Black, Chapman on the west coast and Atorneys Minchoff and Kuzma, prevailing counsel in last month's $1.7M Scott Hyman anti-Semitic housing case on the East.

Here's Casey Sherman's "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains" book launch, Dorothy Aufiero is the movie's Producer and here is Bad Blood2, with Casey Sherman, retired Franconia and Sugar Hill LE Brad Whipple and I, Your Humble Narrator:

28 August 2010

Spot the Difference: KingCast sees Martin Dunn cry rape to Ayotte, only to laugh about it when it comes to a black man from the NAACP he doesn't like.

Newbies read how the NH Supreme Court just set this idiot feckless cop and his lying lawyer Dan Mullen straight:

KingCast Motion to Intervene
KingCast Supplemental Motion to Intervene, Fraud upon the Court.

Oh, yah, in 2007 you actually wrote to your buddy Kelly Ayotte (with whom you lost the Aaron Deboisbriand case) like a whiny little punk (read: B***h N***a) and said,
"Kelly this is horrible. I feel like a rape victim who finds herself getting mistreated and re-victimized over and over again by the criminal justice system....."

But on 12 November 2005, well before you claim to have been oh-so-victimized in your work environment, you thought it was funny that I might get raped and you said for the record
"It's a funny letter you're asking me to read."

Here then is a copy of that letter for you Mr. "Slime-Bag/Dipshitz Dunn" as your peers accurately called you:

Martin J. Dunn, I don't know if you have been a hunk of junk since the day you were born.....
But I personally know the family of the prior Police Chief Gary Phillips and he never had a problem, never got anxiety attacks or diarrhea, etc. etc..... And what I do know is that as of 12 November 2005 you publicly proved to me that you were a hunk of junk and you continue to be a hunk of junk to this very day, with the help of your lying, deceitful attorney Dan Mullen -- who was himself Kelly Ayotte's water boy during her loss to Planned Parenthood, Attorney fees assessed against Kelly Ayotte. Here's my RSA 91-A request related to that matter, what did it cost the NH taxpayers?

The seminal post on Kelly Ayotte, I say "Off with her head."

KingCast RSA 91-A request to NH AG Michael Delaney: Any and all fingerprint and GSR test results from the Franconia shooting tragedy, more....

Dear Attorney Delaney:

1. Please provide a copy of any and all Gunshot Residue (GSR) test results for:

1. Caleb Macaulay
2. Liko Kenney
3. Gregory Floyd
4. Bruce McKay

I know for fact that a GSR test was done on Caleb Macualay, and common sense indicates that GSR tests should have been performed on all four (4) men to determine exactly what happened and who fired the windshield bullet into Liko Kenney's vehicle (well actually it was Davey Kenney's vehicle and Mr. Kenney was freaking out about the damage being done to it when McKay was busy violating town pursuit polices). This is particularly true if McKay had not been to the firing range on that particular day, and there is no record that he was.

2. Please provide a copy of any and all fingerprint analyses as well. We all know that fingerprint analyses were conducted because your predecessor is a stickler for correct police procedure and a very thorough, honest and competent Attorney. You and I are both fully aware that Gregory Floyd went home with one of Liko Kenney's live rounds in his pocket, so I know you understand a bit about how guns work, and therefore you understand it is perfectly logical for someone to believe that Floyd could have inserted Liko Kenney's second magazine into his Hi-Point .45 that day. And that of course would be important because it would mean that we have Floyd -- in addition to all of his other lies and flipped stories -- making Liko Kenney appear to be a threat to him in a post hoc sort of way.

3. Also please provide any and all documentation indicating that the office ever investigated the "43 kills" Gregory Floyd claimed to have done as writer Casey Sherman noted in the above video.

As you know, Floyd originally said that he didn't say a word to Liko Kenney before he shot him, then he changed his story and your predecessor went with his last version, for some reason. Floyd is still incarcerated for several violations of the law involving guns and criminal threats and such, a real class act.

4. Provide a copy of any and all documents evincing the amount of monies paid to opposing counsel when your predecessor Kelly Ayotte lost in the Planned Parenthood case.

5. Lastly, provide a copy of any and all correspondence between the NH AG's Office and one Richard Nadeau regarding the RSA 91-A requests he sent to the office that went ignored. Make sure to provide all of his requests and all of the Ayotte Administration responses.

Respectfully submitted,
Christopher King, J.D.

Who's raping whom with Fraud upon the Court? KingCast proves Dan Mullen a scheming liar just like his client, fired Jaffrey Chief Martin J. Dunn.

This is part of my Second Supplemental Pleading for mailing tomorrow. The Supplemental Pleading filed earlier today is posted along with the Second Supplemental Pleading, seeking a finding that Martin J. Dunn and his lawyer Dan Mullen committed Fraud upon the Court.

As noted in this post with the Motion to Intervene, the NH Supreme Court reversed Martin Dunn's lies about me being "disbarred" as manifest by and through his counsel, Dan Mullen. I wrote a Supplemental Pleading that I will post later, and it showcases the indisputable FACT that Dan Mullen, of Ransmeier Spellman et al., knew I was suspended and said as much before the Retirement Board where he lost his case, but only juiced up the pleadings to say "disbarred" in an attempt to gain Certiori before the Supremes.

His Fraudulent activity worked, he got Cert and a reversal for his bubble-head client.

But meanwhile, Dipshitz Dunn (as correctly heralded by his peers) and Mullen actually had the nerve to claim that my Demand Letter about the police abuse suffered by Willie Toney was "fraudulent" but he and his client knew better. They knew that the only NAACP Officer Affidavit thoroughly supported my position, that I lied about NOTHING and told the NAACP brass EVERYTHING. Read it here.

Which brings me to my Second Supplemental Motion to Intervene:


EXCERPT: May it please the Court: ........Attorney Dan Mullen wrote
"[King] wrote bogus news articles fantasizing that Mr. Dunn has been arrested for raping his daughter."

Query, did Dunn tell him that? Did Mullen believe him? Did he engage in Due Diligence to check the blog or to ask for a printout (that does NOT exist because it never happened)..... This is pure poppycock, and Dan Mullen and his client knew -- by virtue of the very same Internet posts that they loathe -- that I never issued any fantasy comments about Dunn raping his daughter. No, in point of fact that sad truth was that Dunn was having fantasies about me being gang-raped in prison, read the letter that he thought was funny ("you 'bout to be Bubba's bitch you coconut head racist") and the attendant transcript above. Just the FACTS.

Meanwhile Dunn whines that I called him a "white cracker" well ain't THAT the pot calling the kettle black.

But what's worse than that is the fact that his lawyer jumped in bed with him and worked the lie too, making him no better than his client, some might say even worse because of his moral and ethical obligations to the Court. Now that's one ugly two-headed beast, that.

Lastly Dunn continued to lie about me and told Charlie Duffy in this March, 2006 email that American Tower Corporation had to have police escorts to fire me; walk me out of the building. More poppycock. There were no escorts, just a pissed-off company who had to pay $290K to the Department of Labor after I ratted them out for not paying my trainees overtime, and that's another FACT, call Attorney Corey Surett, he remembers me, or simply read the DOL press release.

.......Let this be a lesson to fired Chief Martin J. Dunn, Dan Mullen and to other blue blood attorneys at Big Firms: Do not assume you can lie at will and get away with it, because sometimes you will get caught, and sometimes you will be punished, one way or another. The types of lies and even physical abuse I suffered at the hands of some of these lawyers in the 90’s (read: Luis Alcalde, Esq) will not be tolerated anymore. We are in a New Era of Communications with the Internet, and viva la difference.

KingCast says "Folks just love my Kelly Ayotte for Senate blog!!!"

They sure do. Google Kelly Ayotte + Senate and see whatcha' get. Well actually the picture shows you what you get, KingCast up on top, once again. And KingCast is on top because of the insightful videos that we do, and they are reaching many more people than YouTube indicates, I know their counters stay stuck on many of my videos, interesting. Listen to noted Author Casey Sherman, retired Franconia LE Bradford Whipple and me discuss Kelly Ayotte in the Bowfinger or Bad Blood Movie #2. Read more about Kelly Ayotte's abusive cop friend Bruce McKay OC Spraying and inappropriately clearing leather (read: drawing his loaded police issue handgun at a bunch of tourists) right here.

Forward-thinking people of the Republican and Democratic persuasion are sick and tired of this feckless AG. Her best buddy Martin J. Dunn (remember the Aaron Deboisbriand and Christopher King fiascos out of Jaffrey) just got schooled by me for lying and saying I was disbarred, the NH Supreme Court changed its written opinion 2 hours after I emailed them, read it all right here.

And read more about Kelly Ayotte's background, including the FRM Ponzi scam and Unconstitutional DNA reporting for NH Youth, right here.

Recon Motion: KingCast warns NH Supreme Court on "Slime Bag" Martin J. Dunn appeal in No. 2009-265, 19 August 2010: Quit telling the same lies he did.

Pictured: Idiot fired cop Martin J. Dunn and his idiot resigned Prosecutor William Albrecht, IV.


Dear NH Supreme Court:

Your 19 August 2010 opinion in Martin J. Dunn v. NH Retirement System stated:
Around October/November 2005, Dunn discharged a police officer, who then obtained union representation and filed a grievance against Dunn.
Well guess what? Dunn and former NH AG Kelly Ayotte lost all aspects of that case, and Jury acquitted Aaron Deboisbriand in about an hour. His father and I kept in touch throughout the case and throughout my case because Dunn and Kelly Ayotte are known to be feckless, but dangerous in their own ways.

It then stated:
In addition to budgetary challenges, Dunn faced a number of stressors beginning in 2004 and continuing through his final day of work in July 2006. In December 2004, Dunn received a letter on NAACP stationery threatening to sue him and the police department. This began a lengthy dispute waged both in the courts and on the internet between Dunn and the letter’s author, a disbarred attorney. Although the letter-writer’s lawsuit against Dunn was dismissed in late 2006, the internet attacks continued.

Well that's not exactly accurate..... First of all it was MassCops who called Dunn a "Slime Bag," not me.

Second, before I kicked his butt in the Criminal case, Martin J. Dunn thought it would be funny if I got gang-raped in prison, i.e. "You 'bout to be Bubba's Bitch," read the transcript.

Third, what happened was Dunn continued to lie, claiming I was disbarred and found guilty of practicing law without a license (both lies) and I warned him about it in your so-called "Internet Attacks" you mention during your little pity party for this feckless cop.

Fourth, I am not disbarred so you need to correct that immediately, the same way that WMUR did when I flagged them on it when another idiot cop said I was disbarred. Read the retraction right here.

Fifth, your opinion fails to mention the bogus case for Attempted Felony Extortion that Boy Blunder brought against me even after I specifically asked to present the facts to the Grand Jury. I schooled them good, (UL coverage) and the State failed to prosecute its bogus case after I sat through Voir Dire with my lawyer, former lead Hillsborough Prosecutor David Horan. Idiot Girl Kelly Ayotte's case for Unauthorized Practice of Law was DISMISSED.

Sixth, Martin J. Dunn (and NAACP President Gloria Timmons) lied under Oath when he stated that I had not read the police reports about Willie Toney being before I wrote the Demand Letter. Read the transcript. I knew Toney, a black man, had faced three (3) drawn guns from white officers and a visual body cavity search for LOITERING -- I had read these police reports right here -- and he beat that case pro se, without a lawyer.

Seventh, Dunn's termination was affirmed by former NH AG John Arnold.

Eighth, Prosecutor Bill Albrecht resigned amidst an Ethics Investigation.

This information was readily available to you and you should have known better. I am much too busy with Courtroom and other video to have to take the time to follow in behind you and clean up your mistakes.

Surely Judge Dalianis should have known better, I know her son and when he worked for Mayor Streeter I was awarded a Mayoral Commendation for my hard work in changing First Amendment Policy in Nashua with Alderman Teeboom and for my investigation into the Franconia Shooting tragedy, idiot AG Kelly Ayotte giving taxpayers the biggest cover up in NH Legal History except for the Dow Murders. Heck I got a Decision on RSA 91-A Right-to-Know against her, take a look.

I ought to sue you for Defamation, but I'll settle for an immediate retraction. Just because I annoy you does not give you the right to tell lies about me, do you understand that yet? Thanks for reaffirming everything I thought about NH "Justice."

Please issue the correction forthwith, or I will Commence Legal Action. You are the High Court of the State, and you have a responsibility to get it straight before you publish, not after. What did you think my people wouldn't keep me informed of things like this, or did you -- like former Chief Dunn -- think you could just say and do anything to a black man and get away with it?

He couldn't and you can't, either. Now go back and get it straight.

Submitted with all the respect that is due,

Christopher King, J.D.

A short pictorial essay.

Damn I could have used a touch more shutter speed on the 2nd bluster pic, grrrrrr.... hiss..... but then again, perhaps not. And the Union Oyster House picture is a hoot, makes no sense look at it carefully, a fun edit. Anyway, if you have any questions don't call me 'cos my phone is ringing off the hook.

Union Leader, KingCast agree: Hillsborough County DA Robert Walsh & former NH AG Kelly Ayotte are unprofessional.

These scans are from a case raised by the Union Leader in a 19 October 2007 Editorial, "Gagged by Nashua: What's Michael Paulhus's story?" Read this post to see why they are relevant to the Malfeasance manifest by Robert Walsh. I believe he was in part responsible for investigating the Christopher J. Micklovich Strange Brew beat down by the Manchester Pee Dee, he completely failed in these two instances. When I get home I will image the Returns of Service in Liko Kenney v. Gregory Floyd et al. and place them on top, you will see why they, along with the Kish Report, are relevant to understanding how the NH Legal system "works."

In today's UL Editorial, "Hillsborough County attorney admits mishandling case," in which he clearly closed out two cases without due investigation.
"I feel it is important that both the community in general and the law enforcement community know that I did not use the usual chain of command and protocol in discussing a resolution of this case," Walsh said. "I acted too quickly. I recognize this is unfair to the chief of police and the victims."
Unfortunately, his actions were par for the course under the previous AG Kelly Ayotte, who, inter alia:

1. Allowed key evidence to be destroyed in the police shooting of Michael Paulhus, the UL's own Oct 19 2007 story referenced the case and raised questions about the confidentiality provisions of settlement in their own editorial: http://tinyurl.com/3ahoenb

....but did not mention the FACT that key items of evidence were destroyed under Ayotte's watch. Read the independent forensic review by Googling "Paul Erwin Kish + Paulhus."

2. Gave Greg Floyd a pass in 24 hours after he shot Liko Kenney, even though he issued materially conflicted statements about his actions and speaking to Kenney prior to shooting, as noted by well-respected Author Casey Sherman in video and in his book, "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains." When a Nashua man sued for information Ayotte said that she had no fingerprint analysis (Floyd could have placed Liko Kenney's second clip in his gun, seeing as he went home with Kenney's live round in his pocket) nor was there any Gun Shot Residue analysis provided even though I know they tested for same on Caleb Macaulay's clothing.

Nor was there any analysis of the windshield bullet that was lodged in Liko Kenney's car, which could also prove that Floyd lied about his actions. Read more about Kelly Ayotte's history of malfeasance (including the Paulhus case) and watch related video right here.

It is going to take a lot of work to restore any semblance of decency and fairness to the NH AG's Office, Mike Delaney has his work cut out for him.

KingCast presents: Look Ma.... No Feet!!! ...... Wet & Wild fun at Wagner Motorsports!

Video processing, 8:22p.

I stopped by to ride the F800 GS and surprise, surprise I still like the F800 ST more, so that will be the Next Rig. They've been out for 3-4 years now so that $10K MSRP should be whittled down appreciably (yuk-yuk) on a pre-owned model come next year. Meanwhile saw some tight cats lettin' loose out back with some heavy stunting, good work guys email me with your names so I can give you props.

Hey KingCast, who is the guy holding the camera on your main portal?

UPDATE: Ladies and Gentemen: The Rolling Stones is being screened this summer and fall at theatres across the Country.

It's Rolling Stones film maker -- George Manupelli. I need to give him a call, check in with him. He's a Great Guy. Just listening to some mid-to-late Rolling Stones and thought of him. Specifically I was checking out the last good album, specifically "Before they make me run," great rhythm track. Bill Wyman's presence on that one is the kicker, I wonder what he was playing but it sounds a bit like a Rickenbacker but I don't think he was known for playing those. This site has him playing a 4005 JG but this site says that's false. Nobody seems to know what he recorded Some Girls with after his Fender Mustang was boosted. Anyway, enough of that, here's the damn song already, Viva Vinyl!!!

KingCast makes a drink!

Ode to Jerry Springer, my favorite customer when I was a bartender at Sudsy Malone's.

Anyway, you need the slightly sour grapes from your backyard vestigial vines, a small watermelon, some triple sec, Sauza Gold or whatever Tequila you like, fresh garden basil (regular and Thai for the garnish), juice from two limes and let it rip. I combined half the half pint O' Triple Sec with the moonshine/grape mash (left) prior to draining, then poured about half the 750ml Tequila bottle into the puree from the basil-infused watermelon chunks seen in the blender, at right.

I then poured a dash of the Tequila into the grape/Triple Sec mix for Good Measure, hit a quick blend and pour over ice, garnish with flowered Thai basil.

Place 650R in driveway apron, place key on fireplace mantel.

KingCast smiles as Madden, Electronic Arts are sacked by 6,000 former NFL players, "reverse curse???"

Here's today's NPR story noting that the players are suing because the Madden game uses their likenesses (with minor, insignificant variation) for commercial gain. That's a no-no of the no-brainer kind. The writing is on the wall, from this $28M Jury Verdict 2007-2008 case against the NFL Players Association that went into overtime when the players sued their attorneys for not finding a way to introduce the crucial emails between NFL and EA as noted in the first link. And after that case, my hometown hero and arguably the greatest running back of all time followed suit, he's a fella' by the name of Jim Brown. Anyway here's part of the email chain from these dirtbags:
For all retired players that are not listed... their identity must be altered so that it cannot be recognized [by Madden players]... Hence, any and all players not listed... cannot be represented in Madden 2002 with the number that player actually wore, and must be scrambled.

KingCast asks Cousin Mike: is this the Reverse Curse LOL Cuz.....

KingCast presents: Known liar Derek Lodie's trial, continuance or Plea agreement.

Update...... 9:47p -- Video is exporting to file, then upload to YouTube, prolly done about 11 maybe a tad earlier actually 11:30-11:45 (it was 11:32).

Guilty Plea on Assault Charges, Attempted Murder dismissed. Four (4) to Six (6) years concurrent, no victim statements. Attorney Carney did his best to keep KingCast cameras from capturing his client but he should know that's a futile attempt. I'm too quick for that, not to mention persistent, so I'm gonna shoot my Canon at whatever I want to, when I want to. This is a Free Country, it's called America, dammit.

Will Derek Lodie's trial for (another) (attempted) murder commence today? I don't know but I'll find out. You see, as noted in this post about this central figure in the Revere Dan Talbot/Robert Iacoviello murder trial, we don't really know what's going on with Derek Lodie, except for the fact that he loves to confront people whom he believes give him a hard time, and he and Michael Picardi sure know how to tell some lies. Well that's not true. We also know that the eyewitness account of Revere LE Billy Soto put the gun flash in his hand when Dan Talbot got shot.

And we also know that the proferred testimony of Michael Racca could be heard to put the gun in Derek Lodie's hand, but don't let me tell you that. Instead I'll let Mr. Racca tell you himself. And remember that Mr. Racca is a young man who headed back to school to be an EMT/nurse, he's actually doing something positive with his life, unlike the procession of dirtbag State witnesses we got to watch at trial. Am I making a credibility assessment? Well in a word, yah.

PS: With all these concurrent sentences (read about the new, reinvented altruistic "Batman" Jason Watson (a/k/a "the Continued Restraining Order Guy) in these posts) running around you would think these cats were friggin' altar boys or something. They ain't, but hell I would be smiling too if I'm sitting in Derek Lodie's shoes and getting the Deal he just got.

KingCast salutes Black, Chapman, Webber & Stevens and India Minchoff & Steve Kuzman for being progressive Civil Rights/Personal Injury firms.

When I saw the hits coming from Oregon I thought it was my old pal and another do-goodnik lawyer Lara Johnson from the Case Western/Diebold days, or Parliament of One blog, whose brother was jacked-up by Bad Cop Brian Cox on Corvallis, but in fact it was not. In fact it was Black, Chapman, and in fact these cats are some of the biggest, baddest attorneys in Northern California, and cool cats who run video choose KingCast and KingCast65 on YouTube.

Lawyers are some of the most backwards, slowest groups of people when it comes to technology, but some lawyers get it, including Boston's India Minchoff and Steve Kuzma, featured above. They recently secured an historic $1.7M verdict in the Anti-Semitic housing case of Scott Hyman v. Hemlock Association in Lakeville, MA. I'll be calling the Court today to check up on the JNOV/New Trial Motions.

Courtroom, settlement and Day-in-the-Life videos are where it's at, and I've been running video from my own trials back in the '90's as I noted above and in this post and in this post. Moreover, several years ago we successfully used settlement video in our case against the overtime-abusing, stock option-backdating racist scumbags at American Tower Corporation, as noted in this Omar Thornton/Budweiser post.

KingCast reflects on another brilliant Wagner Motorsports/BMW Motorrad demo day!

The reviews are in the comments section.

I can't believe I saw a Toaster there today! That set the theme for the rest of the pictures even though it was the last picture I saw/took. Life is funny that way. Video and road test reviews of the BMW S1000, F800 ST and R1200R later.

Here's last year's event.

Here is this year's Flickr photo set.

And the winner is.... The F800 ST, which is not surprising given that last year I realized the 650R is basically an F800 on the Cheap. I know I will own one. To me, and for how I ride and where I ride it is the perfect motorcycle.

America, the Home of the Brave: KingCast reflects on workplace violence and racism in the wake of the Hartford Distributors Omar Thornton tragedy.

Update: The plot thickens with NYTimes release of surveillance video.... and the arrest of another woman. And here another black worker says "no problem."

Related NPR story: "Strange Fruit........We're gonna' lynch the niggers!"Now that's scary because I lived in Indianapolis, and I knew about the State's KKK history. James Cameron:
I was looking for some kind of mercy, a kind face.... but I could find none.....

....and you know, both those trees died after that......

Soo...... I don't know what the exact facts are, but I have read from a NY Daily News link in this Christian Science Monitor feature that race was at issue. This from a publication I trust more than just about any other:
"If you called him a n----r he would go off," she said. "But he kept it inside. He kept it all bottled up."

Thornton's best friend, who asked the Daily News to keep his name confidential, said he also used to work at the beer distributor and saw Thornton subjected to racist taunts.

"No one should have had to endure what that company put him through," the friend said. "Stuff on walls. Racist comments. I saw it with my own eyes."

The friend said Thornton was hired as a driver but put to work loading boxes in the warehouse and had to fight to get behind the wheel.

"He had someone write a statement asking why he couldn't drive, and that's when they put him on as a driver," he said.

The company and Teamsters union say Thornton lost his job Tuesday morning after being confronted with video evidence that he was stealing. His friend and girlfriend don't believe it.

"Omar stole beer? The dude didn't even drink. I don't know what he would do with it. He wasn't the stealing type," said his buddy. Hannah said she thought he was being set up.

"A few weeks ago, he told me that the company wanted to get rid of him," she said. "They were looking for a way to get him out of the company and paint him as a problem. That they were going to pin something on him and get him out of the company."

Thornton, she said, was pushed to edge by bigots who wanted to take him down a few pegs. She said she crafted a letter for him to the Budweiser company - a letter he signed - in which he detailed the racist abuse.

"He heard people say he got promoted (to driver) because he was a n-----," she said. "That's when on the bathroom wall he saw a noose and the words "Kill all n-----s."

Thornton took photos of the racist graffiti, she said.

"I saw with my own two eyes his cell phone pictures. These people are lying. The proof is on Omar's cell phone."

The taunts escalated to on-the-job sabotage, she claimed.

"Sometimes his coworkers would pack the trucks the wrong way just to give him extra work," she said. "He was one of only two black guys in the whole company and they were both treated as outcasts. As misfits."

Hannah said that Thornton's union rep didn't support him.

If that is true, I appreciate the loss of lives but I do not appreciate the attitude. Similarly, here is a forum board full of contempt for All Things Jewish, which I cannot appreciate either.

What I can appreciate is this:
1. Responsible government officials who prosecute and settle workplace abuse issues, such as the $290K DOL fine...err....settlement with American Tower Corporation after I, as a black man, wrote a letter on behalf of one of my trainees who reported them to the DOL.

2. Responsible private attorneys who made American Tower pay $14M for backdating stock options. KingCast was there, Boston Globe was not.

You can watch our short film "American Lawyer" at KingCast.net, and as you do, note that these haters had the nerve to imply that I was going to kill people like the bloke in Wakefield, MA and they called the police on me and told the employees I was a "Dangerous Black Man" because I had the nerve to ask for a fax machine, a refrigerator and a back office copier. I was employee of the week but I guess that's only as long as I kept my mouth shut..... Other employees who supported me (Caucasian female and a male, black) were hassled and fired but we hung in there and sued those scumbags, led by HR VP Aileen Torrance, Esq, see how she filed a false Affidavit. The money they ended up paying to us was a pittance to what they own, but the Good Thing is that all of us kept our heads high, took the legal route and told them to go to hell.

At any rate, I can't possibly know what was on that brother's mind when he went off like that, but for anyone who is upset about Corporape Amerikkka please put your finger in the dial, a hand on the shutter and spend a minute inside final cut pro or iMovie '09 before you put your finger on the trigger. This way they can never claim victory over you. You'll be alive, out of jail and marching forward in America, the Home of the Free.... Land of the Brave.
