Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Judged Unfit to Judge Anything At All - Now with 100% LESS Radio Silence

 
Back in black (and white)...Read it and weep...


 
According to a Clallam County (Washington) District Court Judge (pro tem) it is now an offense to publish the news and to post anonymously on a local public interest blog. He considers it harassment.

Port O Call publisher Dale Wilson was subpoenaed to District Court on a petition signed by Chelsea Ward, founder of a local domestic terrorist group called "Our Town." "Our Town's" stated goal is to "clean up the city" by harassing the homeless population until they leave town. On the other hand, Port O Call has, for the past four years, reported on local government, concentrating on waste, fraud and corruption.

It was only after a homeless family got pepper-sprayed that Port O Call delved into the activities of this virulent vigilante group.

Ward filed the petition under the Domestic Violence statute which, when successfully deployed, prohibits the respondent-publisher from reporting the news. She did not say Wilson has ever been in her presence nor ever contacted her personally nor electronically.

Her entire case before the ironically named Judge (pro tem) Laurence Freedman centered on news articles published by Wilson on the activities of the vigilante wing of her Facebook-centric group, "Our Town." 

Reports included armed vigilantes intruding on homeless camps and harassing them. One of the leaders of "Our Town" is a thrice convicted felon (Madam Chamberlin) recently charged with possessing of "a sack full" of stolen data chips from cell phones stolen from homeless individuals

This same felon was charged by the local sheriff's department with pepper-spraying a family in their car. Recently he was convicted of his third felony, possession of a sawed off shotgun. From one of the stolen data cards this felon found a video of an intimate act between the owner of the cell phone and her lover. This he posted online with salacious comments. Because, really, that's what Jesus would do, right?

Coverage of these news stories are the sum total of Ward's complaint for harassment. Said coverage has been limited almost exclusively to the Port O Call; the Peninsula Daily News has been (not so) strangely quiet about their activities.

Additionally, she read into the court’s record from a series of anonymous posts to a local blog, Port Angeles Unearthed. Without any attempt at proving Wilson posted the comments, the judge allowed her to present her case of harassment, found it credible, and issued a restraining order on Wilson and ordered he not “defame” her. Because, as we all know, facts can be so defaming.

Despite the judge pro tem allowing her to ignore all the rules of evidence and allowing her to represent a third party, "Our Town," the order went out and could cause the arrest of the publisher if he finds himself within 200 feet of Ward. She did not even suggest that the publisher had ever been in her presence. All of her "harassment" was from news reports and anonymous blog posts which she attributed to the publisher, Dale Wilson.

The anti-harassment statutes are intended to provide a safe process for domestic-violence victims to get protection orders from abusive domestic partners. In a broad stretch of the statutes Freedman now says one does not have to have ever seen or been in the company of a “victim” to be guilty of harassment.

The hijacking of this statute to muzzle legitimate news reporting is something every newspaper publisher in the country should take very seriously. Freedman just gutted the Supreme Court decision in New York Times v United States where the court overturned a previous order prohibiting the Times from reporting on The Pentagon Papers. The Supreme Court, in 1971, called this "Prior Restraint" and forbids it.

The Supreme Court rightly concluded there are torts available to those who feel they have been maligned by published articles. These include causes of action for libel, slander or defamation.

Of course when one brings such a tort case they must engage an attorney, file a complaint with a local court and pay court costs to initiate an action in court. They must also pay for service of process to notify the respondent of the action. Not so under the domestic violence statute. Taxpayers cover it.

By hijacking the domestic violence statute the "victim" does not have to pay a filing fee and the sheriff’s department must serve the summons on the "harasser" for free. Then it is up to a pro tem judge, usually a lawyer who plays golf with the elected judge, to make a ruling in the case without any allegiance to the rules of evidence nor even matching the statute with the charges alleged.

The court has allowed itself to become a tool of the harassment it is supposed to extinguish.

Yet to be told is the full story about how these vigilantes infiltrated the local police department and judicial system...

    Do remember that the Prosecuting Attorney, Nichols, is a documented supporter of the vigilantes.

    1. It's all SO crazy, yet SO easy to believe coming out of Clallam County.

      And it's all SO hypocritical. These heartless "Good Christian" types who go out to harass people who are already suffering. NICE.

      When Madam Adam Chamberlin (the convicted felon referenced above) writes threatening messages to me here, he absolutely makes it clear he does NOT think I am Dale Wilson. But, when his demented minion, Chelsea Ward, goes to court, she more than implies that she "knows" it is Dale Wilson moderating this blog.

      Hey, Judge Freedman, get a clue: I am NOT Dale Wilson, and writing about the activities (both online and in the physical world) of the "Our Town" clowns does NOT constitute harassment. That much would be obvious to a fourth grader.

      But don't worry, Judge Freedman. Being that I am NOT Dale Wilson, and being that I am NOT located in Clallam County, I do hereby promise to NOT come within 200 feet of Chelsea Ward. That'll be easy. Plus, I wouldn't want the stench of stupid to get on me.

    2. This is probably up there in the top five most heinous things I've heard of to come out of Clallam County simply because of the dangerous precedent it sets. (Hi Our Town folks - sorry you might have to go look up the word "Precedent" - I know it's a little advanced vocab for you!) How can we make sure that Dale's article in the POC reaches as many as it can? I'll send it to KIRO but that might not spark interest. Would higher up courts take interest? Governing bodies? Elected officials?

    2. No, I don't think Mr. Freedman got the hood pulled over his fat head, I think he is a willing participant in the efforts by the powers-that-be in Port Angeles to silence Dale Wilson. Look at who he is.

      There is no doubt that he is a real estate developer with questionable scruples. And former Port Angeles City attorney. Gee, am I asleep and dreaming, or hasn't Dale been exposing the questionable real estate "arrangements" with "un-named partners" in Chicago concerning the "very screwwy" $900,000 deal the County Board of Commissioners have been trying to push through for the last 6 months or so?

      Come on! This is so blatant. So beyond belief.

      Only in Port Angeles/Clallam County.

    3. I'd say a willing, very active participant indeed. I'd also say crooked, incompetent and morally bankrupt. I'd say all that and more, because I have my First Amendment rights to stand on. Someone might want to take "Judge" Freedman aside and give him a refresher course on that little item...

  4. Yes, these supposed "Christians" are the very ones the Pope himself questions:

    "An explosive article written by two close associates of Pope Francis has accused Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist, of espousing an “apocalyptic geopolitics” whose roots are “not too far apart” from that of Islamist extremism.

    The article in La Civiltà Cattolica, which is vetted by the Vatican before publication, lays out a scathing critique of “evangelical fundamentalism” in the US, arguing that, on issues ranging from climate change to “migrants and Muslims”, proponents of the ideology have adopted a twisted reading of scripture and the Old Testament that promotes conflict and war above all else."

    CK, you know it isn't about you, or Dale. It is about the powers-that-be holding onto the way things have been, being racist, being intolerant, being judgmental, rape, pillage and plunder, and all the things that made "America Great".

    It is about their fear of change. Fear that their warped self identity is being shown to be bad for society, bad for the planet, and bad for pretty much everything. In their self-centered selfish world, everything has to fit into the way they and their fellow travelers view the world, or else. Tolerance of others is not an option.

    It is a severe black mark on America that This group even attempted this. That they have so lost perspective of what "America" was founded upon, what so many Americans have given their lives to protect.

    And the so-called judge?

    If there ever was a case warranting appeal, this is it.

    But more importantly, this is a sad day in, and for America.

    1. Dale can appeal for a modification of the order, by showing the judge by a preponderance of evidence that he is not the threat that Ward claims. 'Course, it's the same judge...

  5. More of the same.

    People move to Port Angeles thinking it is this cute little town, and then find out the truth. Nasty and dark.

    They'll take your money with a smile (if you're lucky), and stab you in the back at the first opportunity.

    How many times have we seen this? Where anyone who stands up change or points out the corruption in this town, are driven out, one way or another.

    I wouldn't blame Dale Wilson one bit, if he threw up his hands, and said "Enough". I doubt he will, as he has a powerful drive for what is right and just. But anyone else would say "Why bother? Let the town sink in it's self righteous stink."

  8. Ohhhhh.. This is looking a bit more like the way we know things go, here in Good Ole Boy Clallam County.

    Mr. Freedman? Real estate developer and Sequim Planning Commissioner who quit a few years back over allegations of "conflict of interest"?

    " Freedman, who was reappointed in December to a four-year term that would have expired Jan. 1, 2013, said he would continue working as a lawyer and a developer but now people couldn’t say a project was being approved by the city because he was involved.

    The surprise announcement came during a public hearing on proposed changes to two city ordinances dealing with "bulk and dimensional requirements."

    If approved, the new ordinances would have allowed higher densities in the city’s R-III and R-IV residential zones.

    That would have allowed Freedman and his partners to develop his proposed 48-lot City Walk subdivision just south of the Sequim Aquatic and Recreation Center, which was the subject of the second scheduled public hearing."

Meanwhile, in other "official" news today...One of the young, promising people from Port Angeles has died of cancer at age 28...The proposed hotel downtown may be on hold, due to the pollution on the site...The Composites Cretins are making big promises again...And the 2017 Community Health Assessment for Clallam County has uncovered the not-at-all-surprising facts that Clallam County residents "enjoy" a lack of affordable housing, limited access to health care, high rates of substance abuse, geographic barriers to healthy foods and rising poverty rates.

    So, yeah, the PDN has ignored the totally totalitarian BS that's being inflicted on the Port O Call. But, not to worry, they've provided PLENTY of other bad news to go around.

    1. I didn't understand this lack of access to healthy food - doesn't every one of our communities have a grocery store? Some even have a food bank with produce. Nobody is forcing anyone to go eat deep fried food at the local eatery. I haven't read the report, just what the PDN chose to put out there but I didn't get that part. I would agree that Sequim is a tight market for housing but there seems to be plenty in other locales that's affordable.Of course we have local officials who want to keep wages low which might be the real issue. High rate of substance abuse? Check.

  14. If the facts are as you report, the order should be easily overturned on appeal and new claims could be lodged against the petitioner and the judge. Defamation has nothing whatsoever to do with a typical anti-harassment protection order to physically avoid the petitioner, typically saying to stay a couple hundred feet away or something like that. Defamation is a separate legal concept.

    RCW 10.14.020:
    (1) "Course of conduct" means a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose. "Course of conduct" includes, in addition to any other form of communication, contact, or conduct, the sending of an electronic communication, but does not include constitutionally protected free speech. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of "course of conduct."
    (2) "Unlawful harassment" means a knowing and willful course of conduct directed at a specific person which seriously alarms, annoys, harasses, or is detrimental to such person, and which serves no legitimate or lawful purpose. The course of conduct shall be such as would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress, and shall actually cause substantial emotional distress to the petitioner, or, when the course of conduct would cause a reasonable parent to fear for the well-being of their child.

    But sometimes petitioners intentionally "set up" the ordered person where the petitioner runs over to the ordered person with a LEO in tow, claiming that the order is now violated, and the LEO arrests. Sounds like the case has just begun.

      The truth is very simple, and in black and white. Anyone who is involved in Port Angeles and Clallam County knows Dale Wilson from his tireless and selfless work. Not my opinion, just the verifiable facts. There are very few people in Clallam County that have worked as hard for, and contributed to the benefit of the majority of area residents. Not my opinion. Just verifiable facts.

      Unlike the "un-named partners" and sleazy people who hide behind ever changing FaceBook pages threatening, bullying and intimidating people, Dale Wilson shows up in person at events, stands up before city council, school board and county commissioners, and tells them his view out in the open. Again, not my opinion. Verifiable facts. (Read the minutes).

      What these morons don't seem to understand is the damage they do to the area. As if the area is not already seen as a backwater sleazy hole to be avoided, now we have proof that may get regional, and maybe national attention if this REALLY sleazy "court decision" gets picked up by the media.

Nichols would like to get Port O Call off the stage before he attempts to get re-elected next year. CW is not smart enough to figure out the legal angles in this sham. She has free legal help. Probably Nichols. Only Nichols could arrange for this chowder-head pro tem to be on the bench that day, courtesy of Porter. Anyone who has any pull with the U. S.

      And for clarification, do you mean Madam Adam Chamberlin, the convicted felon? Is that the person you're referencing?

      The story here is ongoing, let's all see how we can help Mr. Wilson. Because the next time they'll come for everyone else with a brain. Folks, this is YOUR free speech at very serious risk.

  21. Oh and of further interest in Port Angeles is Dale's most recent post of a letter to the editor received by PoC:

    Just when you tihnk it can't....get any....worse......

    1. 8:22, sorry but I'm not following how that letter is bad. Maybe the anonymous author(s) of that letter just don't know how to investigate public records. But if someone raises matters like, it would certainly be a matter of public concern to do some fact-checking. Just saying.

    2. the facts check out.

    3. The letter itself was not bad - I was pleased that this group is shedding some light on a candidates Fact checking is indeed in order but if there is truth to the claims then the voters should know. My comment was meant to simply point out the existence of the letter and, well...it wouldn't surprise me here in Port Angeles!

    4. Don't tell other people to do their own checking, that doesn't work cause people won't do it, and even if they do no one else sees it. If you have documentation it needs to be published, here or Port O Call, till then it's just fun stories.

    5. "Don't tell other people to do their own checking"??? WTF?

  22. Haven't seen any court papers, but could it have been more Ward lying under oath (e.g. PoC and PAU are one and the same, which they are rather obviously not), and all the judge did was rule based on her perjury? That would be one great way to get a new trial.

    1. Think through the implications and ramifications. Anyone can find and read anonymous posts on the web, and attribute them to whom ever they wish? And that passes for sufficient "evidence" to get a judge to convict someone?

      With all the posts the "Our Town" folks have written, with their names and faces attached, they must be really freaking out! Just wondering when the same "process" will be used on them.

      But more important is the absolutely crazy ruling. This judge needs to be called on this. This is an affront to America.

      Delete
    2. Agree that the rules of evidence cannot be ignored. It was only being suggested that no one here seems to know (much less report) what the petitioner's testimony was that served as the basis for the order. The facts.

      Because even if that testimony was false (=perjury under oath), the judge may not personally know that, and in fact it's not the judge's job to know everything about everyone, only to accept testimony as given. It's up to the prosecutor to follow up and charge for perjury, not the civil judge. That's the way our system is set up, like it or not. Even when that prosecutor politicizes his or her job.

      So maybe do some due diligence and find out what she actually said to the judge, and whether or not it was a big lie. Then you'd have the facts to be able to criticize her (and maybe even the judge if it her testimony was something obviously implausible to anyone who heard it).

      I get that what happened here sounds real bad, and it probably is. But stop and think. Public debate requires facts not just opinions. Credibility does not happen when you just blurt out how f'd up things are without a factual premise. We all do that sometimes.

      Please don't think I am in favor of OT. I'll have nothing whatsoever to do with them. Don't even know them. But don't make the world worse by acting just like them by going after someone without some cold hard facts behind it. You're a public forum here. Publish her sworn statements for all to see. It's done all the time by journalists. Then you can editorialize about it all you want, your readers knowing exactly what it is that we're talking about.

      Keep it real. As a reader I have no idea whether she lied or not, because you really haven't reported any facts. I don't look at PDN and never will. KONP is a joke. The Gazzette won't even touch anything controversial. It'd be nice to get the news here, but we understand that as a blog you have no obligation whatsoever to report the news. So as a non-insider reader (and proud of it!), more of the basic facts to fill us in would help us understand why PA is so stunningly bad. It's so bizzarre, that good people are just trying to comprehend how this county got so deeply corrupt, and who is making it that way.

    3. @Anon 9:37 I will go out on a limb, and suggest much of the disgust of the obvious abuse of power by the judge comes from recounting of the actual events, such as this:

      "Additionally, she read into the court’s record from a series of anonymous posts to a local blog, Port Angeles Unearthed." And attributed them to Mr. Wilson.

      Offering no proof, how can she be allowed to defame Mr. Wilson in official proceedings like that, and not be questioned about it?

      Yes, the court record will be interesting, as it really serves to show what lengths Chelsea Ward and her supporters go to, to destroy everyone they don't like.

      How about all the advertisers around town that were threatened by Chelsea Ward and her supporters? That all was just fine and wonderful?

      Delete
    4. Surely Dale or his lawyer pointed all this perjury out to the judge? Or did they not?

    5. How about the actual court order? Anyone seen it?

    6. In the process for a domestic violence order for a restraining order, is there any opportunity for refuting what is alleged? This wasn't a "regular" court process. That is part of what is so absurd about this whole thing.

      Mr. Wilson and Chelsea Ward are not in any form of "domestic relationship", so why did the judge allow this to proceed, in the first place?

      Other than the obvious conclusion that either he is complicit in the effort to silence Mr. Wilson's reporting of the shenanigans in the area, or the judge is a real moron. Assuming that you can't be a literal moron and pass the Bar Exam, and knowing the judge is partners in a law firm with the former Port Angeles City Attorney, the options for conclusions narrow.

      Delete
    7. Please see the actual law posted higher up on these comments on 17 July. A domestic relationship has nothing to do with the proceeding.

      As for complicity, well, the legal process will address that.

  23. I still do not get it. I am lost in confusion here. Chelsea Ward got a anti harassment domestic Violence protection order against Dale Wilson for his anonymous comments about her Facebook page hate sights and her creep behavior? They shut down the our town sight as a hate sight. then Chelsea Ward got her personal facebook page shut down as a hate sight or posting pornography? and had to make a fake one to get on Adam Chamberlains face book page and comment when he was frantically trying to trash Dale Wilson. Someone on there made nasty comments that could be considered violent and threatening towards Dale Wilson, made by ...I think it was maybe one of the guys that the police accused of tearing up a homeless camp while armed but the PA decided not to charge him? Anyway Its all gone from Adam Chamberlins facebook page now but I have it all screen captured somewhere on the fucking lap top.So getting back to the harassment order. Dale Wilson cannot contact her or be within ??? feet of her. LOL that 10 ft. pole thing has new meaning now. Does this mean he cannot report anything in a news story if she is part of it? How many made up restraints can a judge impose on someone who has never had a personal relationship or contact with the so called victim?

    1. You're lost in confusion because this is all confusingly illegal and unconstitutional, Bif. This so-called decision by this so-called judge makes a mockery of basic constitutional principles, not to mention common sense. The judge stayed well over 200 feet away from those things in squeezing this stinker out...

    2. When you look back at what the "powers that be" have done to people who cause them too much trouble, this is just more of the same. How many made up charges have been levied against former "trouble makers" and the like, in Port Angeles?

      But your right, Bif. You lay out a great history of all the crap these people have done. What a bunch of losers.

    3. Did I mention that Judge Freedman is, in my opinion, a so-called judge? You bet. What a joke. He also farts. Absolutely. In other words, I question his judgment, but not his ability to issue forth farts.

      There you go, Adam. Forward these comments to the judge as well. There's not a damn thing he or you can do about them, or about the many, many people who feel that way.

      Everybody farts, kids. Even judges. Farts stink. And so do some judges.

    6. Hey, troll...I just heard some very distressing news. Something that really rocks my world. Someone, I can't remember who, but someone, somewhere, said that YOU are a stinker, too! Tell me it isn't so! I would never have thought that YOU would have that much in common with those horrible, gassy judges! Oh, heavens! What's a troll to do?!?

  24. It seems so bizarre that this fake judge would actually do this but at the same time they give out restraining orders like candy. All someone has to do is pay the money and make up whatever they want and they can get one with no problem. Judges seem to think "better safe than sorry" and if two people aren't getting along they grant it usually. But.. surely Dale has never even talked to her in person since this all began. They were in no danger of ever being around each other anyway. So just because Dale has reported on the Our Town gang and Chelsea/Adam have really been the only members names mentioned that's supposed to be harassment? Reporting on Adam's crimes is surely not harassment. I need to know who that guy is so I can steer clear of him. If I ever lost my mind with hate towards some people bad enough to ignore any and all good judgement and put pictures of them having sex up on the internet I would expect to lose all my friends and be shamed to no end. It's so nasty, but he seems to have redneck retards that have his back no matter what. Do they just not care that he is a huge bully/asshole and it's just not a big deal to have awful behavior? If at some point Dale would have said anything directly bad about Chelsea then she might have a legitimate case. If he said that Chelsea was a bad mother or a bitch or just a bad person or something I could see a judge siding with her but simply chronicling the exploits of Our Town with the mention at times that she is a member of it doesn't seem like anything at all close to harassment. The Our Towners are frothing over this perceived little victory. They have cried so loud for so long of being viciously slandered by Dale Wilson but I'm just not seeing it. Is there something I've missed? Can anyone show me where Dale has written anything directly negative about Chelsea Ward? (don't gang up on me here) But I'm looking for even a shred of evidence that could help this shit show make more sense to me.

    7. The legal standard for a protection order is NOT whether someone wrote something negative about you. It's whether there was any direct or ongoing threat of bodily harm. The law isn't there to fix hurt feelings. That's why this stinks so very bad.

    8. Exactly. And why anybody that thinks this domestic court protection order is any kind of "victory" is going to be disappointed.

    9. By using the domestic violence statute the taxpayers "pay the money." It costs nothing to file for "harassment." Taxpayers pay for court costs, filing fees,service of process etc. This type of abuse of the system denies real victims an opportunity to be heard.
