NOLA Mystery John goes for a protective order…..

But before I get to that we should all consider why the very public criminal justice system is being subverted into a cesspool of secrecy based solely upon the word of the man who solicited a prostitute. To wit:

Sheriff Garcia,

Attached is a scan of the letter you requested related to the MBI Extortion investigation. The original is on its way via the mail……If you have any further questions please feel free to call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx. I would be happy to respond to any media requests you may receive related to this case as well. Take care.

Director Larry Zwieg

You see folks at the end of the day there are only a few lawyers around NOLA that “contribute to many charities”, are a “race car driver”, “an attorney”, and “prominent businessman”. It is natural someone like that would have some political pull as we found yesterday but that does not excuse the secrecy for this is not a sex crime, at least not in Florida and per the police report we only have the victims word as there is no evidence “the crime” was ever reported in California, where the alleged perverted acts of sodomy occurred.

That said since the director of the MBI is responding to inquiries helping rule people out I thought to myself, “Hey Doug, Slabbed is media and you got Larry’s contact information and you’re pretty certain of the identity of the mystery John so…..

Mr Zwieg:

I publish Slabbed, a legal affairs website that covers the metro New Orleans area. We’ve been following the case involving the attempted extortion of a New Orleans attorney with interest.

My legal advisors factually dispute the MBI’s assertion this is a sex crime except to the extent the NOLA lawyer/John solicited a male prostitute off the internet in California. That said I do not think the media has to fight that battle with your office.

Yesterday I received a copy of the letter you wrote Sheriff Garcia in Houton and published same on Slabbed. Along those lines can you confirm for me that Mr XXX XXXXX has also not had any dealings with MBI?

I thank you in advance for your insights and prompt response to this media inquiry. If you wish to visit telephonically please call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

I’m a reasonable guy and understand that the chief MBI guy in Orlando is a busy man, but he got that letter out yesterday pronto for Sheriff Garcia, who is not media and whom has no connection to the case whatsoever.  So besides Slabbed thus far being ignored what else has happened today? The alleged victim filed for a protective order with Judge Heather Rodriguez yesterday and amended that motion today. I’ll be consulting with legal on an intervention because it appears one is badly needed in the interest of transparency.

With all that said we need to visit yesterday’s links on this.  I say this because it appears most readers fixated on Motorcycle racing lawyer Glenn McGovern, who is not prominent, does not race cars and to my knowledge is not known as a huge donor to charity.  I did link the results of a car race in Sonoma California held beginning August 23, 2012 (another link to the race results here) and only one commenter seemed to pick up on the significance of that so for you freaks that are slow on the uptake lets visit again with the police report:

He stated this was the weekend of August 24, 25 and 26, 2012

Now maybe the mystery John flies out to California conducting personal business without booking a return flight because if he had a return ticket, Armstrong airport was open through the 27th of August. The victim tells police he couldn’t get a flight and headed to Los Angeles to solicit a male prostitute off the internet.  We’re big on transparency here on Slabbed and have been fighting BS protective orders since this blog was knee-high to a grasshopper. We’re not gonna stop.

Meantime while I’ve been writing this post, Ramon Antonio Vargas over at NOLA Media Group snagged some comments from the MBI’s Zweig as the spin cycle for the mystery John runs on high.  The public interest here is being trampled by a politically connected lawyer and his enablers.

Stay tuned.

  1. from a inside da employee i was informed it was no other than new orleans own brad adams

    a race car driver, attorney, fund raiser and businness man in new orleans…. google away for images

      1. He’s Ok, BUTT, I wouldn’t do him.~
        I’m getting a visual of those two & my mind
        (which has a mind of it’s own)
        added Billy Nungesser to the party,
        so excuse me while I go vomit. ~

      2. “”Dream” arrived at the lawyer’s hotel room, and the two talked and drank WINE.”

        looks like this case is closed. to the people who know the mystery date well i doubt this comes as a huge shock. live and let live.

    1. This hunt was a lot more enjoyable when I thought the mystery date was an AH. BA couldn’t be a nicer guy if he tried, and bears no resemblance to the others mentioned. If he’s actually the one, God have mercy on my soul…

  2. He looks like a guy who would have trouble “manhandling” a Mazda 2 around Sonoma. Started next to last and finished there.

    1. I know nothing of his family dynamics but from the outside looking in his sexuality is meaningless. To paraphrase one of my favorite commenters of all times the Canadian Anonomouse come on out and share the need.

  3. I think the way this case is being handled by law enforcement
    and the parties directly involved has caused more
    problems than solutions. I understand why someone would
    want to keep the matter private but I think the impact upon
    others who are not involved in the matter has made this
    an untenable route to continue pursing.

    It has resulted in widespread speculation concerning all men
    who happen to engage in the practice of law, are generous to
    the community and enjoy racing. The way it has been handled
    is the equivalent of trowing a bucket of bloody chum overboard while
    a group of divers is in the water. The people who are invovled
    in the matter should come forward out of regard for the others they have
    inadvertently cast aspersions upon.

    If one followed the initial report on NOLA it was very clear that
    the article generated widespread speculation that someone not
    involved in the matter was infact the “John”. I think out of consideration
    for those not involved the actual person should come forward and
    own up to his problems. It will not be an easy decision but it will be
    one which will most fairly impact those who are not involved in the matter.

  4. Steve,
    I hold hardly agree that this is victimizing others reputations and marriages but asking for the party to come forward for those reasons would take character and a conscience, people with those attributes generally don’t use prostitutes .

    1. My email to Mr Adams concerning this matter has thus far not generated a reply. I have also not heard back from Mr Zweig.

      This could not have happened if the John were not in the closet. In today’s day and age, especially in New Orleans, there is no reason to be in the closet and deal with the problems of the associated unshared need.

      Well said Steve.

      1. it appears as if the lone suspected trick is probably known as a man’s man. the suspects father/employer is a substantial guy. my thought is that dalliances with young african american men would seriously strain that father/son relationship and all the perks associated with being the son of a very wealthy man. hence the silence.

  5. Gonna strain it more with Dad when enviably the truth comes out while others will need to visit the clinic to be tested if they haven’t already. There’s 2 ways this is gonna end neither are pretty but only one has a chance to redemption and forced confessions after being ousted will be as unbelievable as the drugged and rape story.

  6. From the Tiger Woods’ wife club swinging/ auto glasses smashed/ fender bender chase incident in Florida it appears the justice system protects and prevents easy access to police records involving their own super rich.

    It could very well be the so-called victim contributes to political campaigns there and when he gets caught in a sticky situation he can’t get out of he races back to Fla. to cum get some home cookin’ justice. County Sheriff – head of MBI – etc. all could have received contributions.

    Bet ya’ if anyone of us laid rubber in Fla. with that Chappaquiddick story we would not be classified as a prominent sex victim but ticketed for mental impairment.

  7. I really fail to see why any of this is newsworthy. Maybe the Orlando DA is not handling this properly…I really don’t know. But why is it in the public interest that we know who the person is?

    1. Its newsworth on two counts Matzerath:

      1. People are highly interested in the subject, especially in the legal profession which is Slabbed’s #1 demographic.

      2. A public accomodation in the courts is being used to settle the matter.

      I’ve struggled with the question of exactly what is news and have come to the conclusion it is whatever people are interested in. To the extent I’ve set new daily, weekly and all time daily page view records off this subject tells me people are highly interested in this train wreck.

    2. Well Mat you’re right it’s only in the interest of a little low life black tranny geting railroaded into a sexual rape and battery case that never was to serve close to a life sentence because a wealthy local attorney who races cars and helps sheriff’s charities misuses the justice system simply because he’s to embarrassed to tell the truth. Now go back to sleep.

      1. What “sexual rape and battery case”? Mr. Lewis has only been charged with extortion, unless something happened recently.

        1. And that is exactly the point … the arrest report on extortion charges is a Public Record … we have right to know the name of the victim of this non-sexual crime …it is the victim who has alluded to a possible sexual battery in his attempt to keep his identity from public view … the victim’s desire to have a protective order is a perversion of legal process … it’s that simple.

            1. No, the police, solely on the word of the victim are saying he was raped in California but no rape charges have been filed there. if he was raped in California and extorted in Florida perhaps the FBI needs to be involved instead of the local yokels in Orlando.

              And nola, you don’t find friends on Eros.com, but you can find a first class whore there from all appearances.

              Sad thing is this type thing could never happen to someone who was out of the closet to begin with.

        2. Wow Doug: twisting my words!!!! I said “The police are investigating rape” They have not filed charges because they are still investigating. Yes the FBI should be involved. I never said you find friends on Eros.com. I have never been on eros.com. Why are you so concerned about his sexuality? Why do you want to outst the guy? How cares if he is gay, curious, if this was his first time or not. It’s a decision that he made and will have to live with. Did this harm you in any way? You all need to let this rest a bit!

          Yes, I know Brad and I do not care if it is him or not. Nor do I care if it is any of the other people it could be. I’m respecting their privaticy. It’s not my business. True friends of the victim (whomever it may be) will stand by the victim. Brad is a very good guy and the evil comments being made about him and the other guys accused of being the victim is awful! I surely hope none of you ever fit the description of being a victim or criminal because you will be treated the same by this forum. May God have Mercy on your Soul!!!!

          This is school girl behavior!!!!

          1. NOLA you left a link to a news story and made an assertion that is not backed by your link. The MBI lacks jurisdiction to investigate a rape in California and no rape was ever reported to the California authorities that I know of. Why the smoke screen NOLA?

            Depriving someone of their liberty should never be done in private using the PUBLIC’s court system. It is just that simple.

            If I wanted to be a school girl or a dick I’d run a post titled, “Reasons why I think Attorney BA is the NOLA JD Mystery John” and dissect this case in detail but I have no desire to inflict additional pain on those folks that are obviously still in denial. I do not know the guy’s family dynamics but at some point their gonna have to come to terms with the fact one of their family members is gay.

            Attacking the core issue instead of trying to silence discussion of a very public matter is the trick here. Not that long ago the John had control of that and despite my very public warning choose to file for a protective order. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle, it is too late for that.

    3. Public interest on Slabbed, as Doug points out, is whatever Slabbed’s readership is interested in. By that logic, the Times Picayune should not report on some embezzlement of a doctor’s office in Houma, because, to shorten your logic – “who cares?”

      Moreover, the nuances of the case have been quite interesting. First, everyone assumes (incorrectly now) it is Magnum, then he produces a letter from the Sheriff in Orlando that was directed to the Sheriff in Harris County Texas. That, in and of itself, begs questions, and commenters on here have validly raised that question. Then, it’s reported that the victim of extortion (which is questionable since he paid $4,000 to start with before he called the cops) files a motion for protective order, abusing the system and stoking the authorities there to label him as a “possible sex crime vicitm.” What an abuse of the system! That is exactly what Slabbed tried to ferret out here and elsewhere.

      So, last I checked, manipulation of the judicial system and favoritism have always been favorite subjects on Slabbed and of “public interest.” As Tom noted (not having seen you post on here in quite some time), maybe you should just go back to sleep.

      1. I appreciate your indulgence in allowing me to comment when I want. I didn’t know this was such a cliquey group of keyboard warriors.

        All of your points are well taken. But I would just note that embezzlement at a doctor’s office in the New Orleans area is a little different than a shake down in Florida over an incident that happened in California. It just so happens the victim has to live in New Orleans. Again, so what?

        Here’s the deal. This individual has not been accused of doing anything illegal. And I’m not even sure we would even be writing about this if the guy was not *gasp* prominent or *gasp* an attorney. People in every station of society get blackmailed and extorted all the time.

        But I get it. Its juicy because lawyers are nothing if not gossips. This gives those days in front of the computer a little more meaning. The broader question is whether that makes something newsworthy or in the public interest. Clearly that question was answered two decades ago when public servants started chronicling Bill Clinton’s blowjobs. But as Max Fischer was asked, Nihil Sanctisne?

        Lastly, maybe I missing something but where is the “public accommodation in the courts.” Is there official pressure being applied to prevent Mr. Lewis from singing?

        1. Mat,
          It’s one thing not to get it but *gasp* it’s another thing not to read *gasp* ! Think of it like this none of the cliquey group of keyboard warriors have prevented you from expressing your self just try to stay up with the group *Gasp* The laws used to protect ones identity are for the sexual abuse not extortion *gasp* that are being erroneously misused which could result in additional charges *gasp* to hide his identity while others take the heat locally for being that person *gasp*

          1. Sorry but that sorta sounds like the tactic of some Gestapo interrogator: “tell me the truth or we will suspect you neighbor of the crime and punish him. You know he is innocent but his pain and embarrassment will be on your hands, not mine.” read that in a German voice and it sounds evil.

    4. I agree Matzerath. The sex crime happened in CA and the arrest happened in FL the only connection to NOLA is the victim. The victim is being treated worst than the criminal. Many men have been wrongfully named as the victim – how can you be so sure the new target is not the victim? If in fact an employee in the DA’s office did leak the name of the victim to John (see 1st comment), I would investigate to see who John is friends with and fire the DA employee. I’m sure whomever the victim is, he is embarassed and is trying to figure out how to handle. The victim should have our support. His personal sexual preference is not any of our business. Most of you only want to know who the victim is for gossip reasons or to take the spot light off of you. There are several men in the New Orleans area that fit the description and they are being wrongfully named as the victim because of people speculating. It is not the victims responsibility to name himself to protect the wrongfully named men. It is our responsibility to encourage victims to come forward, support victims, not spread rumors, and not to hurt one another.

      1. What closet have you guy’s been hiding in ? Since when does an attorney who should know better involves himself in soliciting a male prostitution become such an upstanding citizen in the first place? Better go back and look at that mug shot !

          1. I don’t know Tom, nor am I defending Tom, and having read many of Tom’s comments in the past, I seriously doubt Tom is in a ‘position of authority’ as you imply …

            However the fact remains … PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD AND HAVE AUTHORITY NOW ARE SCARY ! … Broussard, Whitmer, Wilkinson, Roberts, Lagasse, Nagin, Richmond, Landrieu, Vitter, Jindal, Hingle, Nungesser etc. etc. etc. ………………………………

            Mat, don’t assume you can get away with your bully commenting like you do on NOLA.com here at Slabbed and think that you’re sarcasm of moral authority on everything will not be critiqued and/or suspect …

            This is not a blog for the Devil’s Advocacy … it is a forum for the True Believers !

            Quote from the 1989 lawyer movie, True Believer:

            “Eddie Dodd: We gotta find some piece of evidence thats been buried,
            and open the sucker up again.
            Roger Baron: Christ, Eddie, if the guys really guilty…
            Eddie Dodd: Hey, only Shu and God know if hes guilty, and neither
            one of ems talkin.”

      2. NOLA to suggest the Tranny has it better in the Orange County Jail than the victim who sits in his St Chas mansion is a stretch. If this had been an ordinary guy like Tom, it would not have made the news in Orlando to begin with. Likely the police would have laughed Tom outta the station house too.

        I’d keep in mind the alleged victim likely picked the venue and it appears he has some pull there. Extorting Trannies have constitutional rights too and we’ve yet to hear her side of this.

        I’d be covering this if it was a hetrosexual shakedown of a prominent, race car driving civic and charitably minded attorney/prominent businessman and on that you can bet your sweet bippy.

        So yeah, for a week Slabbed took a break and had a bit of fun. I didn’t hire a whore and get rolled so I had no problem dissecting the associated mystery displaying some of those internet sleuthing skills that make Slabbed famous (or infamous) depending on your point of view.

        1. Twist of words, I never said Terrill has it better in the Orange County Jail than the victim who sits in his St Chas mansion. I was only stating that because all of you are trying to outst the guy by accusing all men that fit the victims description – I thought the victim was being treated worst than Terrill. Slabbed’s week of fun is causing a lot of pain to many other guys who meet the victims description. I hope you do not have children because you are teaching them to be a bully!

          Doug, if you are referring to Brad as your victim maybe you should research your facts before posting. Brad does not live in a mansion on St. Charles Ave.

          The other victim lives on St. Charles Ave in a mansion. So what victim are you referring too?

          1. I have the address he uses with the LA Bar which lists a St Chas address. I nabbed his work email addy from the same place.

            And it real simple BA, should hit reply to the email I sent him and say hell no, it isn’t me. Mr Zweig could have done the same thing just like he did for Magnum and the fact he didn’t is duly noted.

            I’m not gonna pester either one of those two guys but the ball is not in my court.

          2. Vrooom, vrooom.

            I actually see both sides of this, and I do feel sorry for Victim, J.D. to a certain extent. But I think if this had happened to some nondescript claims adjuster, or even a low-profile lawyer, this might have gone unnoticed, or the scrutiny would have been minimal. But these self-described “prominent” lawyer/businessman/race-car driver/philanthropist types make themselves public figures and paint giant targets on themselves. All of their vanity-press clippings don’t help.

            In this situation, why is it important to tell the police about your charitable contributions or race-car driving? Moreover, why tell the cops that you are a lawyer/businessman? The simple answer is that this guy (whoever Victim, J.D. is) felt the need to bloviate about his self-importance. And it seems like he is using his societal status to imply that he was raped by a male whore whom he invited into his room to hang out and drink wine. Then he pays the whore $4,000 to be quiet. When that’s not enough and the ho demands big bucks, Victim, J.D. sees no end to this and calls the cops. But he needs to spin the story his way.

            I hate all caps, but here goes. THE MORNING AFTER HE BELIEVED HE HAD BEEN DRUGGED AND RAPED, WHY DID HE NOT CALL THE CALIFORNIA COPS, AND WHY DID HE NOT GO HAVE HIS BLOOD TESTED TO PROVE THAT HE HAD BEEN DRUGGED?

            So as titillating as his story is by its very nature, some of us keyboard warriors are intrigued by this story because we see a guy manipulating the system to obscure his identity and act like a victim when the evidence suggests he was a willing participant in the sex, but then got extorted. And it seems as if he is only able to manipulate the system because he is a rich lawyer.

            VRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          3. Twist that alluminum foil hat a little tighter there skippy and click them ruby heels , Theres no place like home, there’s no place like home ……..

  8. Mat,
    Be real scared was a nuclear ballistic missile tech had a top secret security clearance and protected your life and your famaly’s life for years . By the way if thats the best shot you got to support your view I’m the one that should be scared.

    1. Oh ok. Yessa massa. You right. I’m just whistlin. Pay no mind to my feeble musings. I don’t know much about no nuclear security and what not. You showed me.

    1. I used the wrong words in the wrong way and for that I apologize. As the father of two race car driving philanthropic lawyers I want tough justice for predators. I have a compassionate heart for the victims of sexual assault, and I pray for them.

  9. Matzaball: Its very simple. If you don’t think this is a newsworthy story about a privileged J.D. “blowviator” ( one who races around blowing hot air up people’s asses) misusing his well connected criminal justice friends in another state – than just don’t comment.

  10. I’m starting to think this is a generational thing. Most people under 40 don’t really care about someone’s sexual preference but understand the pressure applied by the olds’ prejudice. So when someone is outed by those olds after making a mistake, it just strikes some as unjust. In 20 years it’ll get better. Ok, it’s Dixie, maybe more like 40.

    1. I’m 48 and don’t care about the victim’s sexual preference as this has nothing to do with that though the Tranny twist was certain to generate more interest.

      That said if you do not see the legal wisdom in Sock’s remarks then putting a few more years behind ya will help clarify your thinking.

      1. Matzerath:

        I have to say that your comments are generally some of the most well-reasoned on slabbed. I even agree with almost all of what you’ve written on this thread. And I’ll go ahead and admit (I think I have already) that the facts of this story interest me. David Vitter’s “serious sin” also interested me, not so much for the illegal sex acts themselves, but because of the abuse of his office that went along with it.

        Salacious, illegal activities involving “prominent” individuals are fascinating to me. If that offends you, then I’m sorry. But I don’t think the interest in this story would be much less intense, if any, had the hooker been a female. I’ll also own up to the fact that as a heterosexual, I find it kind of funny when a macho, rich, closeted, white-guy is drilling a black, male-whore in private.

        But from the beginning, what has really pissed me off is that Victim, J.D. seems to be lying and wielding his influence to make it look like he was raped (see my comment above for explanation). Other than that, I really could care less about this guy’s sexual preference.

        Vroooooomm!!!

  11. mmmmmmm… yes it fits !!!

    The serial bully:

    is a convincing, practised liar and when called to account, will make up anything spontaneously to fit their needs at that moment
    has a Jekyll and Hyde nature – is vile, vicious and vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses; no-one can (or wants to) believe this individual has a vindictive nature – only the current target of the serial bully’s aggression sees both sides; whilst the Jekyll side is described as “charming” and convincing enough to deceive personnel, management and a tribunal, the Hyde side is frequently described as “evil”; Hyde is the real person, Jekyll is an act
    excels at deception and should never be underestimated in their capacity to deceive
    uses excessive charm and is always plausible and convincing when peers, superiors or others are present (charm can be used to deceive as well as to cover for lack of empathy)
    is glib, shallow and superficial with plenty of fine words and lots of form – but there’s no substance
    is possessed of an exceptional verbal facility and will outmanoeuvre most people in verbal interaction, especially at times of conflict
    is often described as smooth, slippery, slimy, ingratiating, fawning, toadying, obsequious, sycophantic
    relies on mimicry, repetition and regurgitation to convince others that he or she is both a “normal” human being and a tough dynamic manager, as in extolling the virtues of the latest management fads and pouring forth the accompanying jargon
    is unusually skilled in being able to anticipate what people want to hear and then saying it plausibly
    cannot be trusted or relied upon
    fails to fulfil commitments
    is emotionally retarded with an arrested level of emotional development; whilst language and intellect may appear to be that of an adult, the bully displays the emotional age of a five-year-old
    is emotionally immature and emotionally untrustworthy
    exhibits unusual and inappropriate attitudes to sexual matters, sexual behaviour and bodily functions; underneath the charming exterior there are often suspicions or hints of sex discrimination and sexual harassment, perhaps also sexual dysfunction, sexual inadequacy, sexual perversion, sexual violence or sexual abuse
    in a relationship, is incapable of initiating or sustaining intimacy
    holds deep prejudices (eg against the opposite gender, people of a different sexual orientation, other cultures and religious beliefs, foreigners, etc – prejudiced people are unvaryingly unimaginative) but goes to great lengths to keep this prejudicial aspect of their personality secret
    is self-opinionated and displays arrogance, audacity, a superior sense of entitlement and sense of invulnerability and untouchability
    has a deep-seated contempt of clients in contrast to his or her professed compassion
    is a control freak and has a compulsive need to control everyone and everything you say, do, think and believe; for example, will launch an immediate personal attack attempting to restrict what you are permitted to say if you start talking knowledgeably about psychopathic personality or antisocial personality disorder in their presence – but aggressively maintains the right to talk (usually unknowledgeably) about anything they choose; serial bullies despise anyone who enables others to see through their deception and their mask of sanity
    displays a compulsive need to criticise whilst simultaneously refusing to value, praise and acknowledge others, their achievements, or their existence
    shows a lack of joined-up thinking with conversation that doesn’t flow and arguments that don’t hold water
    flits from topic to topic so that you come away feeling you’ve never had a proper conversation
    refuses to be specific and never gives a straight answer
    is evasive and has a Houdini-like ability to escape accountability
    undermines and destroys anyone who the bully perceives to be an adversary, a potential threat, or who can see through the bully’s mask
    is adept at creating conflict between those who would otherwise collate incriminating information about them
    is quick to discredit and neutralise anyone who can talk knowledgeably about antisocial or sociopathic behaviors
    may pursue a vindictive vendetta against anyone who dares to held them accountable, perhaps using others’ resources and contemptuous of the damage caused to other people and organisations in pursuance of the vendetta
    is also quick to belittle, undermine, denigrate and discredit anyone who calls, attempts to call, or might call the bully to account
    gains gratification from denying people what they are entitled to
    is highly manipulative, especially of people’s perceptions and emotions (eg guilt)
    poisons peoples’ minds by manipulating their perceptions
    when called upon to share or address the needs and concerns of others, responds with impatience, irritability and aggression
    is arrogant, haughty, high-handed, and a know-all
    often has an overwhelming, unhealthy and narcissistic attention-seeking need to portray themselves as a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person, in contrast to their behaviour and treatment of others; the bully sees nothing wrong with their behavior and chooses to remain oblivious to the discrepancy between how they like to be seen and how they are seen by others
    is spiritually dead although may loudly profess some religious belief or affiliation
    is mean-spirited, officious, and often unbelievably petty
    is mean, stingy, and financially untrustworthy
    is greedy, selfish, a parasite and an emotional vampire
    is always a taker and never a giver
    is convinced of their superiority and has an overbearing belief in their qualities of leadership but cannot distinguish between leadership (maturity, decisiveness, assertiveness, co-operation, trust, integrity) and bullying (immaturity, impulsiveness, aggression, manipulation, distrust, deceitfulness)
    often fraudulently claims qualifications, experience, titles, entitlements or affiliations which are ambiguous, misleading, or bogus
    often misses the semantic meaning of language, misinterprets what is said, sometimes wrongly thinking that comments of a satirical, ironic or general negative nature apply to him or herself
    knows the words but not the song
    is constantly imposing on others a false reality made up of distortion and fabrication
    sometimes displays a seemingly limitless demonic energy especially when engaged in attention-seeking activities or evasion of accountability and is often a committeeaholic or apparent workaholic
    Responsibility

    The serial bully appears to lack insight into his or her behaviour and seems to be oblivious to the crassness and inappropriateness thereof; however, it is more likely that the bully knows what they are doing but elects to switch off the moral and ethical considerations by which normal people are bound. If the bully knows what they are doing, they are responsible for their behaviour and thus liable for its consequences to other people. If the bully doesn’t know what they are doing, they should be suspended from duty on the grounds of diminished responsibility and the provisions of the Mental Health Act should apply.

  12. The Beginning,

    “They are playing a game. They are playing at not

    playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I

    shall break the rules and they will punish me.

    I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game.”

    R. D. Laing, KNOTS

    And The End,

    “In the society of men the truth resides now less in what things are than in

    what they are not. Our social realities are so ugly if seen in the light of exiled

    truth, and beauty is no longer possible if it is not a lie. ”

    R.D. Laing

    1. But it is the Now and Zen that defines the Present,

      “The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.

      R. D. Laing

  13. First there are so many problems with the way the victim and police
    handled this matter. There was absolutely NO reason to include
    the profession, donation history and race car driving stuff in the
    release of an anon victim of extortion by a transgender prostitute.

    Second the problem of “being outted” is not the only consideration
    someone might have—perhaps they are in a committed relationship
    already.

    Third many gay and lesbians believe in outing people in the interest
    of changing social norms.

    Fourth if everyone is cool with gay lifestyles than they should be
    able to clearly see this would be big news regardless of the
    sexual orientation issues.

    Filth never goto court with dirty hands when you are an officer
    of the Court. You know better. Manipulating the Judical sytem
    by an Officer of the Court is a huge matter when it is based on
    MAJOR lies and back room dealings. This transexual man should
    sue, sue and sue again.

    Sixth nobody is concerned about the transexual “victim” who is
    in my opinion— a victim of judical rail roading conducted in a
    vain attempt to create a fictional account of the two people’s encounter.

    Lastly why not call for the arrest of the lawyer for providing false information
    concerning the incident in California. I don’t believe for a second that
    anyone was raped out there by an internet transgender prostitute. The man
    who went on line and ordered sex to go broke the law. He broke the law
    when he gave fake reports to the police in Florida. Yet only the most
    vulnerable of our society is in jail. An uneducated black transgendered
    prositute. Please respond defenders of this attack on the transgendered
    community.

    For the record this entire incident is all our responibilities. We afford gay and
    lesbian members of our community no viable route to legal unions such as
    marriage. Why is nobody concerned about this barrier to the basic building
    blocks of a socially productive union? Oh well. I’ll get off my high horse
    now and walk off into the night. Slabbed has furthered these issues
    by covering them and provided bandwidth for all to express their viewpoints.
    All I see coming from the New Orleans lawyer defenders are attempts to
    frame this in a manner which is most generous to the lawyer. Well too bad
    if others view this differently and you have to read it. Bye for now.

  14. I can’t claim to understand attraction to “chicks with dicks.” That said, like cross-dressing, it’s my understanding that this is a phenomenon seen almost exclusively in *straight-identified* men — not in gay men.

  15. Perhaps a fictional example involving not involving sex but public corruption
    may make the problems in how the case of the blackmailed “John” easier
    to examine? Here goes:

    Person A is a prominent elected offical in a fictional jurisdiction known for
    its public corruption. Person A goes to a fictional website which introduces
    public officals to individuals who want to engage in bribery of public officals
    in exchange for government contracts. He contacts person B who agree
    to meet at the local motel 8 and have a few drinks. Person A wakes up the
    next morning finding two sacks full of hundred dollar bills. He has a headache
    and suspects he was “ruffied” the night before by person B. He also sees
    signed contract by both parties agreeing to obligate the Parish to pay person
    B 1 million dollars for legal services which in reality have or never will be
    performed. Person A also sees a receipt from person B for a check for
    1 million dollars which was written on the Parish’s bank account. So person
    A decides to just keep the money found in the bags and not report the matter
    to the police as it might cause problems for ummm the voters.

    Next—well you can see where I”m headed person B tries to blackmail person
    A and it follows the same pattern of the blackmailed “John” all the way down
    to the press release of a prominent local politician who is active in the volunteer
    theatrical community, likes to fish in canada, etc etc etc.

    See any problems in how the police handled the matter if it were handled like
    the blackmail case discussed here?
    How should the Courts handle the matter?
    etc etc etc

    Hope this helps others illuminate the problem in their own thinking. It did mine
    but I understands all come to conclusions about justice in via different routes
    so please feel free to use your own.

    1. I’ve read all of your thoughtful comments with interest and I’ve got to say you’ve really changed my mind about this case. My first inclination was to wonder why the victim needed to be identified–hadn’t he already suffered enough with the extortion, etc…Also it was clear he needed to go to the police–surely this crime of extortion would continue and escalate. And I do still have sympathy for anyone who is extorted in that manner.

      But viewed from the angle of the victim’s apparent manipulation of the legal system, I understand the wrath being directed towards him. Does it appear that there’s some playing fast and lose in designating him as a victim of sexual abuse? Absolutely. And the whole reason for that is to spare him embarrassment–not a legitimate reason to enter into that charade.

      Also another commenter made an interesting point. This victim is NOT necessarily gay. Some straight men are attracted to men dressed as women. Remember when actor Hugh Grant (who had the beautiful Elizabeth Hurley at home in England) was caught by LAPD with a transvestite a few years ago?. Hugh Grant’s wife just gave birth to thier second child. And he has a reputation as a fairly notorious philanderer with women.
