Dateline: March 27, 2009



After spending months researching legal cases, I’m beginning to understand Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober better. He’s not such a bad fellow after all.

The Florida Supreme Court automatically reviews death penalty cases, and after reading so many of them, discovering all the horrors that the victims suffered, realizing the depths of evil some of these people have reached, I have suffered, too, and feel great compassion and empathy for the victims and their families. I’d heard about the “Jimmy Rice Act,” and why it came about, but I had no concept of what “heinous, atrocious, and cruel,” actually meant until I read the account of what the evil Chavez did to that little boy. It haunted me.

After researching serial killer, Oscar Ray Bolin’s, horrific crimes against Stephanie Collins, Teri Lynn Matthews, and Natalie Blanche Holley, and imagining what their families must have endured in trial after re-trial after appeal, over and over again, the facts of their cases made me physically ill. It just doesn’t seem possible that one human could commit such crimes against others, but, sadly, it happens all the time. Perhaps the answer is that Bolin is not human.

It now seems clear to me why Mark Ober is the way he is. I have gained insight into why he wrongfully prosecuted me for a murder I did not commit, let the actual killer go free with “immunity from prosecution for first degree murder,” why he coerced convicted felon state witnesses to perjure themselves, why he withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense, and why he has continued to make false, misleading, and malicious statements against me before the Florida Parole Commission and on Fox News.

Mark Ober has paid a high price for exposing himself to all the crimes in his career as an assistant state attorney, private defense attorney representing Bolin, the most notorious serial killer in Hillsborough County history, and now as the elected state attorney sending people to Florida’s Death Row.

Immersing himself in all that evil has infected Mark Ober with a serious disease, a mental illness, similar to“Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),” commonly associated with soldiers affected by the horrors of war, but also applicable to civilians, victims of crimes, police, fire, and rescue workers, and now, perhaps even prosecutors.

Mark Ober is sick, and he deserves our sympathy. The moral conflicts he must have suffered when he was torn by the decision to further his political career by trying so hard to free the monster, Oscar Ray Bolin, in exchange for months of free publicity and name recognition attendant with his efforts to save Bolin from the electric chair must have torn him up inside and warped his conscience.

Once you go so far across the no-man’s-land of moral turpitude, it’s virtually impossible to turn around and make your way back through the minefield of lost souls, even with your eyes wide open. It’s like becoming a cannibal—once you’ve fed on human flesh, any other acts you commit seem inconsequential and pale by comparison.

So, Mark Ober suffers from PTSD, and unless he gets some intensive psychiatric treatment and therapy for it, it will only get worse. I’ve seen many such cases in over thirty-one years of false imprisonment. Often they are prescribed so many psychotropic drugs that they become zombies.

Mark is trying to do it on his own, like going fishing in Tampa Bay for snook and redfish every chance he gets, going to Bucs football games and Yankees baseball games, but that isn’t enough. You know, he owns a Ruger .44 magnum pistol, and there is a history of suicide in the state attorney’s office. Mark’s predecessor, Hanging Harry Lee Coe, supposedly blew his brains out beneath the Crosstown Expressway during the 2000 election campaign (which Mark won by default). Lots of pressure, it seems he took the easy way out.

Don’t do it, Mark! Hang in there and get the help you need. In the meantime, you could come clean, confess your sins, and admit you’re sorry for the prosecutorial misconduct you committed against me. Show some remorse! It will make you feel a lot better.

It seems to me that it would NOT be possible to give someone immunity from first degree murder.
Murder is murder. If one commits one ... the statute of limitations never expires.
It's a gross exemption from a set-in-stone law if one man can give one man COMPLETE EXONERATION.
What would stop that man from committing murders if he knows one man will and can exonerate him.
Not just your case but ANY case.

AND it's not much of a stretch to say that a man who would be WILLING to murder would then commit murders FOR the man who would exonerate him.

That just seems impossible in America or anywhere.
How can that happen?
That's way too much power and it's little wonder that it's abused.

 Abrasive attitudes, and tough stances are good because they represent 'freedom'. Women can emulate the worst examples of men and call it being strong and independent. There is NO reason you cannot be both!

Fuc+ Mark Ober! He deserves a oneway ticket to hell and I hope he makes it there real soon...
