Lake County Corrections in Tavares, Florida Violates Constitutional Right of Inmates to Receive Mail Compliments of Kenneth Zimmerman

What’s going on in the mail room at Lake County Corrections in Florida?

Lake County Corrections jail in Tavares, Florida violates the Constitutional rights of inmates to receive mail from family and friends.

Ironically, they who claim to enforce the law are themselves violating the highest supreme law of the land. The first amendment of the U.S. Constitution permits freedom of speech and equal access to intellectual property, which dissemination of Lake County Corrections blatantly hinders and denies its inmates.

Worldwide minister & author Paul Davis personal letters to an inmate at Lake County Corrections (Tavares, FL) were repeatedly denied, labeled illegal, and censored. When Davis phoned to speak to Ms. Williams within the mail room, Williams advised Davis to send the letter addressed to her and white out the website below the poem Davis an author had personally written. Williams assured Davis once the website below was removed, the correspondence would go through to the inmate.

The initial letter was returned and on the exterior of the envelop was written “illegal contraband”. Davis who worked on Ground Zero the first week of 9/11 found this a bit amusing, considering all he had sent to the inmate was a poem he had written about Albert Einstein. “I guess that was too much intellectual stimulation for the corrections officers and inmates.” Davis laughingly said.

However upon the third attempt to send letters previously denied, Davis to his surprise after following Ms. Williams protocol received the bundle of previous denied letters that he had whited out the websites below and attempted to send again. This time the denial was marked “Not allowed due to content.”

It seems Lake County Corrections does not only refuse mail, it also now censors it.

Upon phoning Ms. Williams boss officer Kenneth Zimmerman, Davis asked him for the written criteria for what mail is refused. Zimmerman replied, “Well, that’s always changing.”

Davis responded, “How convenient for you. Well sir, please send me the list of the last documented publication requirements and stipulations as to what criteria and categories of mail are to be denied so I can comply.”

Zimmerman contradicted his subordinate Williams telling Davis poems were to be excluded altogether. When Davis told Zimmerman he was an author and wrote the material himself along with 14 books, Zimmerman told Davis to mail the books through a bookstore.

David responded, “I’m not endeavoring to mail a book. I am simply trying to send a poem which I personally wrote and typed.”

Zimmerman spilled the beans saying, “Well anything that looks like a download we reject. It has to be hand written.”

It seems they in the mail room at Lake County Corrections lazily reject mail before adequately and thoroughly looking through its contents. Obviously the tendency is to lazily deny rather than approve. This was a direct contradiction to what Williams told author Davis a week ago that typed poems and letters were permissible.

Yet whatever ‘hot water’ the mail room staff thinks they are staying out of by haphazardly denying legitimate mail will soon backfire on them when Constitutional attorneys take this to the Supreme Court.

Davis who completed a year of law school himself in New York said, “It seems the ‘good old boys’ down there at Lake County Corrections just do about whatever they want despite the Constitutional perimeters and the statutes within the supreme law of the land governing us all.”

I received an email dated June 5, 2008 from Robin Bourn that said:

“My son is in Lake County Corrections currently awaiting a parole violation hearing. He was five days from being released from parole and Florida violated him due to a DUI in Arizona, which is where he has lived since his release from Florida a year ago.  I believe his rights are being violated, as they have put him in  solitary confinement for having a candy bar belonging to another inmate (this is what I was told on the phone).  He is not allowed to receive mail while in solitary.  Is this a violation of his rights and is there anything I can do? I live in Indiana and am extremely concerned about what I’m being told about the conditions he is being kept in.  I don’t know what to do and the lady on the phone at the prison was very rude and no help. Thank you for any advice or help you can give.”

Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi conferred honorary Canadian citizenship while under house arrest in Myanmar

Burma’s pro-democracy icon and Noble Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest, will be conferred an honorary citizenship by the government of Canada.

I think it’s so cool Burma’s human rights advocate and Nobel Peace Laureate who has struggled selflessly for years for the liberation of her people, will be honored in such a way.

My wife is Canadian and I think that’s a first class move of solidarity with Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma.

I’ve been to Burma several times ministering in various churches covertly and was disgusted with the level of governmental corruption I experienced. From the time you go through customs and cross the border, the greedy government is in your pocket making you exchange $300 USD in exchange for the FEC (federal worthless currency), which even the locals don’t want. Then to be of any value in Burma you must exchange the FECs for chat (the local currency), which you lose about 7% value upon immedite exchange. So basically the government beyond the visa immigration fees, wants another $21 upon arrival per person for themselves.

What makes my blood boil is the way you can’t travel freely throughout Burma. Nevertheless I went to several black out zones to preach the Good News of Christ to former University students (who couldn’t attend University for a while because the ignorant and fearful government had for some time shut the Universities down in an effort to practice mind control and a futile attempt to rid the land of democratic ideals from the West).

Laugh out loud at such governmental stupidity! Now the monks and people throughout Burma are rising up and boldly challenging the military junta – some even dying for their battle for freedom. The recent cyclone that devastated the country showed the heart of the governmental junta who withheld foreign assistance and aid for weeks, fearing they’d lose control over the people.

I pray God Almighty breaks the back of the enemy and causes the evil to bow before the good in Burma and be brought to justice swiftly before international tribunals for crimes against humanity. I pray corrupt governmental officials in China backing this brutal regime in Burma also be brought to justice.

1and1.com auto renewal cancellation policy – fraud, complicated, and poor customer service

http://www.1and1.com with whom I have 34 domains, many of which I have switched from http://www.GoDaddy.com does not offer clean and crisp easy access to your domain names status.  That is unlike with GoDaddy you cannot easily all in one clean listing see the status and expiration dates of your domains.

In an effort to keep ongoing business and continually bang out credit card debits into eternity, 1and1.com likes to hid their auto renewal page in another website altogether and thereby intentionally complicate matters.

The site is http://www.cancel.1and1.com

Then you have to go to the top left and click “cancel” after which you click the link that says “cancel & cancel additional items”

This will finally bring you up to your domains where you can remove the “auto renewal” feature.

1and1 cleverly keeps their customers by making another website to go to in order to simply stop the auto renewal feature, then they conceal and scare customers into thinking they will be altogether cancelling the domain (when they simply want to stop the auto renewal feature).

Many lose heart and simply just leave the domain on auto renewal at this point, but if you persevere you indeed can stop the auto renewal.

A lot of trouble considering GoDaddy makes it way easy.  Upon calling tech support at http://www.1and1.com about my 34 domains with them, I asked to consolidate all packages into one, but the tech was too lazy to do that for me and refused.

Neither would she cancel any of my domains.  To add to the nightmare when cancelling a domain not only to you have to endure the above process at 1and1.com but you also thereafter have to click through your inbox email confirming the cancellation (that is if you even receive it).

When I had one domain transfer that didn’t go through from GoDaddy, I asked 1and1 tech support to tell me if there were any others. The lady “Sheryl” rep.3729 told me “That will take several minutes to look in each one.”

I replied, “I don’t care! I pay your company several dollars every month for domains. Do it!”

She reluctantly did so and didn’t provide very good service because she had to comply with all of 1.and1.com’s goofy policies to slow down customer cancellations and discontinuing a mere auto renewal.
