And Now This

Since my engagement at the 94th Precinct a few things have happened:

1. My attorney sent the Commanding Officer of the 94th a letter. Sex toys are mentioned! He has received no response inasmuch as I can tell.

2. Yesterday just after 6:00 pm I received the above voicemail which I have been generous to scrub the last four digits of the caller’s number.

The deal is this: if I do not know who is calling, I do not answer. There are very sound precedents for this, my, policy too:

1. I have been assigned phone numbers one digit off the from the Bronx Medicaid Office and a travel agency. You think those phones stop ringing after the office closes? Think again.

2. I have been assigned a phone number which clearly belonged to someone incarcerated at Rikers. This in and of itself is not problematic. Rather, the callers were. Folks owing money. Folks owed money. And one woman accusing the guy of giving her a disease. And I was accused of covering for this guy. Good times.

3. I own my time. If I do not want to talk, I am not going to. To anyone. It really is that simple.

ANYWAY

Eventually I did notice a voicemail. After a couple of listens and consulting Google I began to understand what is being proposed. Very simply put, Project Reset is the handiwork of the Osborne Association and these folks are acting on the behalf of the NYPD and District Attorney’s Office.

What are they offering? This is where it gets fun. Basically I am to sit down with one of their personnel (who, once again, are agents of the FDNY/DA’s office) and admit guilt to what I have been accused of. It goes without saying this bypasses an attorney/legal representation but I am tossing this out anyway. Then I take a two hour workshop and the matter is dropped. The DA will not prosecute.

The thing is this:

1. I DO have an attorney (and I have referred this nonsense to him).

2. Why should I confess to something if I did NOT break the law? The officer’s interpretation of the graffiti law was— how shall we say— “creative”? When you get down to it, my real crime was not giving these jerks the fear or respect to which they felt entitled.

You know, being a bitch. Being a bitch is not a crime; it is a survival mechanism. ESPECIALLY in New York City.

3. Now let’s consider that the police did, in fact, commit a crime. They deleted photos of the arresting officers from my phone. This is not some arcane law, it is called the Fourth Amendment. So can they avail themselves of Project Reset too?

Seriously folks.

If the Brooklyn DA’s Office or the 94th/NYPD need to talk, they can direct their correspondance to my attorney. He’s Ron fucking Kuby for fuck’s sake.

It ain’t hard to find his number.

P.S.: Once again for the folks in the back. This is all over snarky feminist comments placed on sex toy advertisements. Illegally posted sex toy advertisements on a construction fence. From a company that is suing the MTA because they will not run their femivertising. I did ask Dame via Twitter if these posters were theirs and if so if they had permission to post them from the owner of the property. I never got an answer.  Best of all, it has been brought to my attention that this is not the first time the NYPD/94 have tried to pull a sketchy “graffiti” arrest. This woman was offered a deal. She rejected it, got the case tossed, sued and got a settlement. Cheers!
