...If you were where you say you were (which I cant work out anyway why that matters) why didn't you use a witness statement like your Girlfriends to
corraborate it? or even your own Phone records by contacting the company?
Did he waterboard you? :-)
Im sorry I have read this a few times but I cant make head or tail of the actual thread and what it means especially in relation to the Headline, is
that just a Factual statement of historic events on a time line but with no real connection?

1- It was my family that was contacted first...as way of an investigation. The cause or reason for this was called "routine."
2-I have no idea if i was part of any investigation prior to this
3 and 4- I was not arrested. As is the general rule with federal charges, an indictment must be passed down from a Federal Grand Jury. I have not been
5- It was after my family was spoken to, by an agent out of Atlanta I contacted them through my lawyer...it was a proactive attempt to curb an
indictment. You see, I have an extensive Criminal Justice background and I knew it was better to try to stop this before it went to a grand jury.
6-the emails they showed me, we generally of a benign nature. It was more used as a tool to prove I wasn't in MS when Katrina hit (which I never said
I was...I had left a few days before)
7-ATS was not brought up, however, what struck me as odd, was the first investigative phone call came only a week or two after I was on the AP
8-My Professor, while an educator, is also one of the most respected attorneys on the Gulf Coast. His entire family is quite well connected. He, like
anyone, needs to make money, and had a standard fee for federal cases. How much work or hours he dedicated to this, I have no idea, but he is a man of
honor I know he would not inflate the price of what he charged me...especially since I am a former student of his. Part of the work involved in hiring
him was, like i mentioned earlier, proactive. It is through him, the majority of the charges have been dropped.
9-They are saying she is biased and therefore not reliable. It is a matter of my intentions and she cannot speak to what I had intended...only I can.
And that is what they are calling into question...saying I chose to move a few days before the storm hit.
10-My waterboarding scheduled for next week...cute.
The only reason I bring up the AP Show is because I was very critical of the governmental stance on New Orleans and how they had pretty much forsaken
the Mississippi Coast. That is what I mean when I say "coincidence?" in the title. I will be honest, it may have nothing to do with my spot on the
show, however, it did strike me as odd with the timing.
