Racist woman gets probation for insane and relentless campaign of harassment against neighbors

Published

on

Most charges have been dropped against a Minnesota woman who has been accused for years of harassing her neighbors.

Prosecutors accepted a plea agreement with 64-year-old Roberta Madison, who admitted to one count of violating a harassment restraining order and sentenced to one year of probation, reported the Pioneer Press.

The St. Paul woman was also ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation and comply with any resulting recommendations.

Neighbors have complained for years that Madison has subjected them various and bizarre forms of harassment, reported City Pages.

Madison demanded one family to remove trees on their property after they moved into their home in 2016, and she called a tree company pretending to be the homeowner after they failed to act.

Workers began cutting before another neighbor intervened, and the homeowner was billed for work they didn’t order.

Madison then allegedly called 911 to report a “sex operation” involving “suspicious” people of a “different race,” and she also was accused of reporting false claims to the fire department.

Police said she also hurled racial slurs and threatened to have her neighbors deported, in addition to throwing trash, snow and glass into their yard.

Madison was accused of affixing sex toys to the neighbors’ fence and setting off her car alarm to drive them inside.

The victims eventually put up security cameras, which caught Madison exposing herself and making obscene gestures, and she repeatedly violated a restraining order taken out in fall 2017 by her neighbors.

Madison previously pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2010 for violating another neighbor’s restraining order by throwing feces at their home.

That neighbor moved two blocks away, but the harassment continued.

Madison tried to take out a restraining order against her new neighbors, but it was denied due to lack of supporting evidence.

Prosecutors agreed to drop six more serious charges against Madison — including two counts of gross-misdemeanor level stalking, indecent exposure and disorderly conduct — in exchange for her guilty plea on the misdemeanor charge.

Rep Ocasio-Cortez blasts complexity of health care marketplace: ‘No one should go through this’

Published

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the complexity of the health care marketplace on the day of the deadline to sign up for 2020 coverage.

Health care has been a major topic in the 2020 Democratic primary, with some moderate candidates defending the Affordable Care Act passed under President Barack Obama, while progressive candidates push for Medicare for All.

"Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange," she explained. "That means I get to 'choose' [between] 66 complex financial products."

"This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, and no one should go through this, either," she argued.

How to take down a cult leader

Published

on

Do you focus on shaming them for the damage they’re doing? Do you try to expose their lies and hypocrisies? Do you remind them of our common values? Do you try to prevail with your values? Do you try to prove that they’re factually incorrect? Do you curse them for being bad people?

Any of these moves could be useful for swaying onlookers to resist the cult, but that’s a different matter. The question here is how to cut them, making the cult and its leaders show blood.

Not once in Trump’s entire political run has he shown blood, been left speechless, stunned, or stalled. Remember Dan Quale’s face when Lloyd Benson told Dan Quayle, “You’re no John Kennedy”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYAZkczhdMs)  or Reagan’s “there you go again”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN7gDRjTNf4) Or Chris Christys cut  Rubio over his “25 second sound bite”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkdpzRDxTXU) Or the classic, Joseph McCarthy cut by Joseph Welch’s “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?”(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8llS0ZkLVGA)
