Part Seven: Mendo Madness
Thursday, November 21st, 2013. Down to Ukiah to get a court order to Release Private Property. What does “Walk-In” (court) mean to anyone? After about 30 minutes of watching several people kowtowing to the Corp. Court, and the Bailiff Officer walking around and chewing gum! We, my daughter and me, went downstairs to the Court File Clerk’s window. After explaining to a guy my purpose in being there, he goes off and returns with my file. He looks it over and tells me to go down to the next floor to the D.A.’s office –huh? I tell the lady behind the glass that my personal property is being held and I want it released. She asked me if a warrant issued? “No.” She hands me a paper form to fill-in. Done. I returned it to her. She goes to her computer and types in the NAME, wads up the paper I just filled-in, and tells me that I plead guilty and a penalty (TAX) amount . .. “Stop! That is not correct, it was Dismissed.” She wanders around and finds someone else to ask. Then she comes back, opens the door, and tells me that she’s going to ask the D.A. She returns and goes back to her desk. A D.A.Assistant comes in the room, and with his eyes nearly closed, tells me that it was Dismissed, puts both hands up and back down, then turns and leaves. Back upstairs to the Court File Clerk’s window, the guy is gone, and I repeat to a lady file clerk why I’m there. She goes off looking for my file. I mentioned that it might be where the guy file clerk sits or downstairs in the D.A’s office. She said, “No it’s not downstairs, we have our own files up here.” She returns with my file, looks it over, and starts highlighting a paper form where I’m to sign, and writing in times, dates, and case numbers. I fill-in the appropriate information, attach my Declaration and proceed upstairs to the law library to make copies. Back down stairs to the same lady, I hand her the original, take a copy downstairs to the D.A.’s office, and one copy for me. A Dec. 2nd ‘court’ date is set to obtain a court ordered Release of Personal Property.
The smell of malicious prosecution in the D.A.’s office was strong. Not to mention that the D.A. enters whatever he wants into the computers in his office! Psychological liars all around! How much longer til the system falls in on itself?
I want to mention that the closed mills stacks of dead trees (36 & 101) are all much larger than three weeks ago. The many, many, many large pallets of milled 4 x 8’s at Scotia are also growing in number. The large neon orange “Share the Road” bicycle signs that were so prevalent on 36 and 101 from Aug. thru Oct. have been removed. How much did those ridiculous signs cost Californians? How much were the busy highway crew paid to install them just to remove them a few months later? Where are they stored? Are they stored? Can we get a refund? Are bicycles a target in the winter and spring months?
