Harassment, Unequal Justice & Angry White men

U.S. Supreme Court building claiming 'Equal justice under law'It's "funny"-in a sad way. We're told we live in a country with "Equal Justice Under Law." It even says so on the United States Supreme Court building.

Of course, Blacks and Hispanics know that's not true. Especially older Blacks from the Deep South. And now I, as a white man, am finding that Orwell was right. "Equal justice for all" is just an illusion in our country. Equal justice isn't even the law anymore! For the law now says women have more rights than men.

Consider my friend's plight. (Also a white man.) After his wife, Mrs. Bodine, clandestinely moved out of their primary residence (without telling him... it came out serendipitously in court. And here he is, dropping the children off unknowingly to an empty house (where they pretend they are still living) and worse, here he is, trying to make mortgage payments on an empty house while he's spiraling into debt), he eventually moved back into their house, thinking that would be best for the family when they reunited. (At the time, Mrs. Bodine was leading Mr. Bodine on about how she was willing to be reconciled. She was lying from the start. It was just a ploy to buy time. Men, if your wife is leaving you, watch for this lie. You'll want to believe it, but actions speak louder than words.)

Shortly after moving back in (and finding she took all the door knobs!), someone called the local power company, claiming to be Mr. Bodine and had the power turned off to the house. Twice!

Now, who do you suppose knew the account number info for the electrical utility and all the other identifying information? And who would have motive (i.e., spite) to do such a thing just after Mr. Bodine moved back in?

After the second time, he called the cops. For you see, in Arizona, interfering with the delivery of any public or regulated utility to a person is Harassment, a Class 1 misdemeanor. (Wouldn't it be ironic if their oldest son, who is now a cop, made the calls?)

Now, when Mrs. Bodine would call the cops, the Prescott Police would come running at the drop of their hats. Whether there was a valid claim or not. Even if she falsified a police report. However, when Mr. Bodine would call the cops... well, you see, he's a man. He's not a protected person, like his wife.

The cops (in this case, the Yavapai County Sheriff) didn't do a thing except take a report.

Yeah, that'll teach her.

I can understand why there are Angry White men.

Something's gonna blow one of these days.

As for me, I'll just have to be patient and wait for justice in the next life.
