Little children, let’s not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. -1 John 3:18
All Hallows’ Day, 2020
On November 1st, as i was on my way into a Sunday church service, two men attacked me; breaking my leg, and causing internal injuries. On top of the injuries and the insults endured, i was falsely accused of assaulting them. As a result of other men’s malfeasance and deception, i must now contend with the serious legal jeopardy now threatening me, permanent danger to my knee, and mounting medical bills to boot. Your support is now necessary to prevent a gross miscarriage of justice. Help ensure this unpleasant experience serves as a learning opportunity, to represent truth and love, and to expose the corruption in our midst.
This little light is of the Father of lights.
Long story short...
Much of this past year i have been on the Olympic Peninsula exploring opportunities to further a particular philanthropic endeavor. When COVID took hold, i spent more time exploring the forest and riparian microclimates. In search of fellowship and coworkers, i also visited half a dozen congregations in two nearby towns.
On November 1st, i visited one such congregation for the second time. On this Sunday, i had a scheduled lunch meeting after service with their pastor. Shortly after arriving, two men began to harass me without warrant or worthy cause. As they became more aggressive, i raised my voice to call out for Aaron. As the second syllable of their pastor’s name passed my lips, these two men physically and violently attacked me; barreling me backwards through metal doors, and into a bench where my knee was broken.
Repeatedly, i cried out about my wounded knee as i lay there beneath their weight pleading with them to get off of me. Their response was to mock my cries rather than to heed them. In the face of such cruelty and violence, i then ordered them to get off of me before issuing a warning that i was about to defend myself. A moment later, i attempted to escape toward the parking lot. Halfway up and to the right, i pulled my little bench-made knife in order to secure it, and with the hope that this would give my assailant a little pause, and take their paws off of me just enough to put distance between myself and these malfeasance men.
It didn’t work.
Standing there with my knife, a clear thought cut through the ensuing chaos, and i thought, ‘mister blu, you ain’t gonna use that on them.’ Moments later, i was brought down to my hands and knees before safely tossing the knife away. Doing so as i had no intention of hurting anyone, even as they unleashed their violent hearts on this unsuspecting brother. A third man then entered the fray, adding his weight to the assault, as i went down to my chest with arms and shoulders in their control, and with the 300 pound interloper atop my torso. As i struggled to breathe, i was put in an asphyxiating chokehold, punched in the ribs, and my face hit on concrete three times.
Finally the local police arrived. Yet, despite my report and clear statement, the local police arrested me in what appears to be a sloppy attempt to cover up the crimes committed against me. These three men are trying to frame me for the crimes they committed against me, the stranger in town who they needlessly, violently, and wrongfully attacked; and the arresting officer(s) appear to have abetted this cover up and frame job. Its a small town, and two of the three who injured me are the arresting officer’s buddies.
Falsely arrested, encaged in concrete for seven days, and denied adequate medical attention despite my repeated requests. A week after being attacked and injured by these men, while doing nothing more than what i reckon we all ought to be doing, i was finally able to go to the hospital where they diagnosed the broken knee and internal trauma to the torso.
This has all been rather distressing; and, as the philanthropic pauper, i am even more. Compounded by the fact that justice is too often for sale. Now, on day 70, after unsuccessfully seeking support and legal representation elsewhere, i must now turn to you for a financial contribution, appealing to countrymen and kin alike, praying that God puts it on your heart to stand up with me against these injustices, and for the truth.
Rest assure, i harbor no ill will toward my assailants, nor any others who have wronged me, and i am thankful that know one was hurt as much as i was, or worse. It is my will that we all be reconciled with and in the truth; repenting of wrongs done, resolving our differences in a manner befitting love, and coming together in the spirit of love and truth; living in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know who family is. Instead, i will put more focus on being the kind of kin i would have other kin be. To fill the need. To rise to the challenge. Encouraging others as well.
Please, help me to prevent a serious miscarriage of justice. Dont let them frame mefor crimes i did not commit.
Albeit this be a verbose plea, there is more to tell. So much more to tell.

Security in Truth’s Transparency.
Kindly, Mister Blu.
This fundraiser is to help with the costs of hiring a competent and skilled law firm to handle the legal defense. If there are any funds remaining after legal fees are taken care of, they will help to mitigate the rising MEDICAL EXPENSES resulting from the assault and battery upon my body; which are now above 20k. Of course, to be exonerated and to no longer be in legal jeopardy is the priority in context. And i will be exceedingly grateful to mount the defense necessary to exonerate me of these allegations based on the inconsistent statements of those who did indeed perpetuate violent crimes against me.
Find it in your heart, and do dig deep;
Ensure justice is done among His sheep.
A little house cleaning is good for all.
May the truth prevail
And justice not fail.
To serve the life well,
Ring that Liberty bell.
