CIA Informant

Im confused. You guys are opposed to the Christmas celebration and all it stands for (ie. consumerism, funding the war machine, Capitalism etc.) Yet, you use it as an excuse to prevent one of your own from being in jail. How convenient. Can you explain?

Im of the opinion that Mr. D should have not violated his probation in order to stay out of jail, but then again Ive been accused of having common sense before.

why was he on probation? 16.Dec.2002 18:48

Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmsas -

I'm sorry but Mikey was not a good boy this year, so he'll have to enjoy his Christmas with the other bad little boys. Ho Ho Ho

A phone call is cheap compared to 17.Dec.2002 15:41

losing your freedom

Maybe the "D" is for dumb.

Jail been there done that, probation too -
I can tell you I'd much rather call my P.O. everyday of my life (it takes all of 5 minutes) than do a minute of time for the man in Jail.

Merry Christmas Mike, maybe next time you'll play the game a little better - or else theres always room for another in the clinker.

Solidarity, Mike! 19.Dec.2002 10:32

Who cares what the D means?

Fuk u CIA informant. Who are you even TALKING to? "You guys...bla bla bla bla." You're one sick fukhead if you think that's what Christmas stands for.

I, for one, am writing to the judge.

Why is it that so many political activists are in jail while convicted and too-rich-to-be-convicted war criminals and the criminally insane run the country? Oh yeh. Cuz we live in amerikkka.

The "D" for Mike D. comes from Mike not having a middle name, but the cops wanted him to have some sort of middle name, so he decided "D", and that is his name now, MIKE D.
Now stop fucking focusing on his middle name and focus on, that nobody should go to jail for not calling their probation officer every day. Mike D. should NOT be in jail!
You greedy people who criticize him should learn that our jail if full with people like Mike, who don't do anything REALLY WRONG! Mike WANTS to be out for Christmas so he can spend time with his family! I don't personally love Christmas, but it is nice to be with all of my family sometimes. Oh, one other thing, the person who said they would call their probation officer everyday to stay out of jail, that's sure sweet and lovely that you would do that for your P.O. but in reality, that is FUCKED UP!!!! Probation is really fucked up, and I would rather get a short period of jail time, then to serve a long time of probation. WRITE TO THE JUDGE and let him know Mike D. should be able to spend time with his family on Christmas!

Jail or a phone call? you choose - 19.Dec.2002 13:43

Done did time

Boo fucking hoo! People who are really oppressed in the world would fucking laugh their ass off about some dumbass who didn't call his p.o. everyday going to jail!
Stop trying to turn this around like he didn't have a choice about where he'd spend Christmas, puhleeaze! Do you really think anyone could give a fuck? Hmmm hard choice - pick up the phone check in with my PO or be a dumbass and let the system swallow my freedom again, hmmm tough one kids right?
NO! I've done time - PO, Piss tests, rehab, court it's all bullshit, but and here's the kicker: they want you to fuck up! That's right - don't call em your playing right into their game, they'd like nothing more than to snatch your freedom away. Just admit it folks Mr. "D" chose his fate, now he'll have to pay the price. It sucks, hopefully he'll realize a phone call a day keeps them cell bars away, peace Mike have a nice Christmas: but I can't say I feel sorry, you chose your fate bro.
