Striking for Justice

On September 30, I began my hunger strike in hopes that my prayer for justice will be heard. I consume no food or juice while I am fasting. I am starving to bring attention to injustice. I am a spiritual person and I have practiced fasting throughout my life on several occasions for 10 to 20 days. My desire for justice is greater than my desire for food. Inspired by the prophets, I will go to great lengths to see truth and justice prevail. I am a prisoner for possessing 1/10th a gram of DMT and 3 grams of mushrooms that may or may not be psychedelic.

The past few years I lived mostly on the Caribbean and did much work with Ayahuasca and natural plant medicines. I studied ancient natural remedies that predated the pharmaceutical age of medicine. I studied and practiced Ayurvedic and Shamanistic plant medicine.

Using modern medicine techniques, I research neuro-medicine, analogs of serotonin, and medicines that prevent the metabolism of those serotenergic neurotransmitters. My professional publications are at ResearchGate.net, see “Neurodegenerative Disease Cure 2018” by Brian Aberle. It is Ph.D. level research work.

I am also an expert of the highest degree in software and algorithm design. I have 25 years experience. Technology industry experts call me “a guru”. I was a key player in several Silicon Valley startups where my work was featured in newspapers and industry trade journal magazines. I served as Architect and Team Lead of the “Core” engineering team on what was at that time the largest software project in the world, National Clinical Information System(NCIS). I made presentations to IBM Global Services and the Kaiser Permanente Board of Directors. I also implemented the software control system used by Siemens Medical in 1/3 of all hospitals world wide for oncology treatment with Linear Accelerators. I am also the author of the fastest XML parser in the world known as XMLFoundation.

I am very experienced in both medicine and technology.

My criminal case in Ashe County North Carolina is for possession of a very small amount of DMT and mushrooms and a kitchen full of chemistry and laboratory equipment. The “drug lab bust” was “a fiasco” in the words of Michael Sheron of the NC State Bureau of Investigations in an email to Collin Shuford f the NC Department of Justice State Crime Lab dated June 26, 2018 because 3 fire departments were on scene to determine that my oil lamp was not an explosive device and the NC Department of Health was on scene to determine that it was not a methamphetamine lab, therefore the Department of Health had no jurisdiction to dismantle it. Michael Sheron then contacted the DEA to clean up the lab and materials who had AEO, a licensed contractor for the DEA, remove the lab and materials from the scene.

You can verify these facts directly with <Andrew.Blethen@apphealth.com> from the Department of Health, <MSheron@ncsbi.gov> From the NC SBI, and <CShuford@ncdoj.gov> from the State Crime Lab.

Additionally, the Ashe County Ambulance (336.846.9111) was dispatched to the scene and many officers from the Ashe County Sheriffs Office were on scene following the lead of investigators <JStout@AsheSO.com> and <JWilliams@AsheSO.com>. Ashe County Sheriffs Office reported the event to <editor@AshePostAndTimes.com> for the headline story about how the Sheriffs took down the lab manufacturing explosives and drugs, then they pubkished their work on Facebook.

The instigator of the event was Timothy Moretz (DPS no longer lists their employees’ work contact info) from the Ashe County Probation Office. He obtained the search warrant because I told him that DMT is in all living things, both plants and animals. I explained that I know how to extract it from human urine or grass from my front yard. Superior Court Judge Puckett issued a search warrant based on nothing more than that hearsay and the fact that I own lab equipment.

In that conversation, Timothy Moretz went on to explain to me that the world is over-crowded due to advances in medicine and health care which I explained has been the focus of my professional work for the past 25 years. When I told Timothy that THC, the active component of marijuana is medically an Actyl-Cholinesterase Inhibitor(an AChI) which is what the medical industry prescribes for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases in the form of pharmaceuticals, then Timothy began preaching and ranting about his hatred of marijuana and disregards all science that contradicts his personal beliefs.

The injustice was then compounded by the Malicious Prosecution of the Ashe County Sheriffs Office by setting my bond at $300,000, holding me in isolation and severely limiting my communication for the first 42 days of imprisonment. When Timothy took me to jail, he refused to allow me to get my wallet from inside my house and refused to allow me to lock my house. With no money from inside jail, i could only make phone calls to phone numbers who had a prepaid PayTel account. Jail administration assigned me to the female dorm in their computer which prevented me from using the jail email system during my trip from the isolation cell to the showers in the male dorm which happened ever 3 to 7 days.

On August 31, the Department of Health came to the jail t conduct a surprise inspection because I had a complaint (#88808) filed for poor sanitation and health risks in the jail. In ‘F’ dorm where I was being held there was mold in the showers, small flying gnats, bed bugs, and a lice outbreak. Most prisoners suffered from a skin condition that the very helpful nurse calls ‘the jail house breakout’. 5 of the 20 men in that dorm including myself had severe ear infections that were treated with antibiotics. Two men slipped on the constant puddle that was under the sink and the roof leaked when it rained.

The facts of the health conditions and jail conditions can be confirmed in the prisoner medical records kept by Judy Foster the jailhouse nurse. She can be contacted by email <jof1950@gmail.com> The jail conditions and skin conditions can be verified by most or all of the prisoners that were in “F” dorm while I was there. I have their contact information. Many deputies will verify the facts regarding the dorm conditions and lice outbreaks. Check with [MHartsog, MHolman, DDavis, BBlanco] all at <@AsheSO.com>. Deputies Calloway, Cline, or Brian or the newly hired deputies may possibly testify to the truth. Captain Sharon Price <SPrice@AsheSO.com> will likely defend the jail but knows the truth.

On September 4th which was just a few days following the surprise health inspection, in retaliation, ACSO filed 3 more felony charges on me – two charges in one new case and one charge in another new case. The new felonies are: 1 for possession of DMT, 1 for manufacturing DMT, and 1 for possession with intent to sell DMT. These 3 new felonies were in addition to the first 3 felonies which were: 1 for maintaining a dwelling used for manufacturing DMT, 1 for possessing “precursor” chemicals to DMT, and 1 felony for the 3 grams of mushrooms which was the initial reason for arrest and that we still don’t know if they were psychedelic. This is extremely Malicious Prosecution for 1/10th a gram of DMT and 320 grams of solvent that had another fraction of a gram of DMT in it.

The wild grass being used for my personal research and human urine have extremely small amounts of DMT. ACSO considers solvent with a trace amount of DMT to be pure DMT. It would take 1000’s of pounds of grass or a life times worth of urine to extract 320 grams of DMT. The fact of the science is proof that the charge of 320 grams is maliciously fabricated. Ashe County is mostly familiar with methamphetamine cases where inactive ‘cut’ is charged as if it was pure methamphetamine. Water can be used as ‘cut’ because water can be consumed. Naphtha, the solvent that contained a fraction of a gram of DMT, cannot be consumed and is not ‘cut’.

Ashe County Sheriffs have condemned and convicted themselves by their own measure of justice because they in fact serve DMT on every food tray. Peas, Beans, and Carrots all contain DMT all other molecules besides the DMT are ‘cut’ because they can be consumed. Therefore, by their own logic they are guilty of serving many pounds of DMT every day. Furthermore because DMT exists in the human body naturally, every deputy is guilty of possessing DMT. Additionally, their bodies technically ‘manufacture’ DMT. In my kitchen i was merely ‘extracting’ DMT in trace amounts while seeking serotonin which some plants also contain. Since DMT is a close analog of serotonin, they are extracted together and must be isolated.

The facts of the science of DMT and serotonin are accurate and can be verified by anyone educated in neuroscience. Some plants contain serotonin. Modern neurochemistry calls serotonin ‘The Happy Molecule’. The goal of pharmaceutical antidepressants such as SSRI’s, SNRI’s, and MAOI’s is to elevate your serotonin levels which causes you to feel happy. All plants contain DMT, however it is found in trace amounts – like serotonin. DMT is known as ‘The Spirit Molecule’ because it causes mystical spiritual encounters. DMT closely resembles serotonin, both are endogenous or created naturally in the human body and both are 5HT neurotransmitters.

After the second 3 felonies were filed Maliciously in retaliation for prompting the health inspection, for those new cases I chose to represent myself. I was still represented by Garland Baker <garlandbakerlaw@gmail.com>(828.386.1965) for the first 3 felonies on the other cases that were not on the court calendar on that day – September 6th. This created an opportunity for me to speak in court for the first time since my arrest. The judge heard my motion to preserve the evidence on my laptop that is being held by persecution but contains evidence needed by the defense. The data it contains must not be destroyed or changed in any way. The judge also heard my motion for a speedy trial and my motion for the discovery of evidence. I motioned to dismiss the absurd new charges because the prosecutor has DMT in him.

So does that make him 170 pounds of DMT? I asked that the absurd charge be dismissed. The judge told me that I must serve these motions on the District Attorney so I hand delivered them to the District Attorney myself right there in the court room in the presence of the judge.

On September 20, all 4 of my charges were before the court. Garland Baker asked the judge if he could withdraw from my case because I elected to represent myself on the 3 new felonies. He said, “Because all 6 felonies are the same thing and he cannot represent half of my case.” The judge granted his motion to withdraw. This does not void my request for court appointed counsel, the court is still obligated to appoint counsel for those charges, and as of October 7, the court still has given me no legal representation.

Next the judge heard my motions for the 3 felonies where I elected to represent myself. The judge granted my motion to preserve evidence and leave my laptop in the condition it was in when it was taken. The judge denied my motion for a speedy trial, and denied my motion for the discovery of evidence because, he said, these motions only apply in superior court and not in district court.

I hunger for justice.

I am a follower of the greatest prophet, Jesus who is the Christ of the Bible, and who is the Messiah of the Quran. Therefore, I practice fasting. [Matt 6:16-17] speaks of fasting like its expected, saying “when you fast…”. [Matt 9:15] says that when the disciples are not in the presence of Jesus – then they will fast. [Matt 17:21] says that the stronger demons can only be cast out by prayer and fasting. [Acts 13:2-3] says that Christians in the early church fasted. [1 Cor 7:5] Saint Paul wrote “give yourself to fasting and prayer”.

I also follow the wisdom of Moses, King David, and the prophet Daniel who practiced fasting according to the Holy Bible. Additionally, I follow the knowledge of the prophet Muhammad whom God instructed to eat and burn Syrian Rue as incense in the teachings of the Quran. Eating or inhaling Syrian Rue smoke forces a person to adhere to the dietary laws of Moses – no pork or shell fish for example, and very little wine or yeast leavening.

I use sacred incense such as Frankincense and oils as prescribed by Moses in [Lev 2:15-16]. Acacia is used to make the most sacred part of the tabernacle, and the Ark of the Covenant, and the table which holds the 7 lamps, and the Alter of Incense. Moses and Chinese Confucius regard Acacia very highly [Exodus 25 – 27].

I use the ancient knowledge of shaman medicine men to create a drink called Ayahuasca which is prepared various ways in various cultures with 1 part Caapi vine OR Passion Flower vine OR Ayahuasca vine OR “golden milk” or Syrian Rue AND 1 part Chacruna leaves OR Acacia bark OR Yopo seed OR Phalaris grass. Wise men from the East, the Magi, who were guided by the stars and regarded Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh also prepare the drink called “Golden Milk” made from Turmeric and Black Pepper. I also use the knowledge of the Taino who were natives to the Caribbean islands. They planted Yopo trees at their “Stonehenge like” ceremonial site in Puerto Rico. The tree is native to Israel and may have been used there as well.

I am persecuted for my religious beliefs and practices which are protected by the US Constitution. On October 3, I was moved to a disciplinary isolation cell for fasting. I filed a written grievance to Captain Sharon Price immediately. One officer decided that I am attempting suicide by starvation. On October 5, I met with that officer and Lt. Stan Greer to correct the misunderstanding. A 2nd written grievance was filed that day because Lt. Greer said I would be released from disciplinary isolation “when you eat.”

I ought not to be disciplined, even “for my protection” due to any of my religious beliefs of practices. Many of the deputy jailer agree and are petitioning Captain Price on my behalf. I told Lt. Greer on October 5th that I may not eat for weeks. As of October 7th, I remain in disciplinary isolation for not eating.

It might also be considered religious persecution that during “the fiasco”, 138 items which were legal to posses and obtained legally were confiscated and destroyed. My entire collection of incenses and spices were destroyed. They were next to the oil lamp which was suspected to be an explosive device. The glass oil lamp was fitted with a copper bowl to burn incense such as Frankincense, Myrrh, and Palo Santo (which means Saint Paul) also all of those saints are appealed at their malicious decisions for purpose of profit, ‘cuz a purse fit their god when they lost the truth for their profits to prosecute the prophets, exacting they tax us for Saint Peter’s cactus or judge with such doom God’s lush mushroom. The cruel and the blind, hate the true and the wise. They just rule with lies and trust fools as just guides and this is why…I hunger for justice. Psalm 109.

Yours Truly,
Brian Aberle

New Sheriff in Town

Yesterday, the good people of Ashe County took to the polls, and it’s official:  The grotesquely degenerate and predictably leftist Good Ol’ Boy Club will lose the protection of their crooked Sheriff’s Office on January 1st, when “outsider” Sheriff-Elect Phil Howell assumes the office – and begins to clean house.

In his first race, Phil narrowly beat the G.O.B. Club’s pick by a narrow 208 votes – with almost 13,000 votes cast.  Congratulations, Phil; you have the esteemed opportunity to be a hero in your hometown.

The elephant in the room, and question on everyone’s mind:  Will the resignations come faster than the lawsuits?  I heard Chief Jailer Captain Sharon Price didn’t show up for work today…

Brian has a Grand Jury Hearing next Thursday.

Mightier than the Sword

Day 12, and I am strong.

I was punished with five days in the hole for not eating, and it did not stop me despite Lt. Stan Greer telling me that I would not be released from the hole “until you eat”.  I won that standoff because deputies agreed with me.

Today, Deputy Greg Calloway threatened me – back to the hole for not eating.  He is very fat.  In front of the dorm, I told him, “If I should be punished for under-eating – then you should be punished for overeating.”  He yelled at me, “Shut the fuck up.”

Truth is a sharp s(word), a sharp word, a sword.

Enjoy this little rhyme I wrote:

I’m so square that I’m G 2
so extra dimensional that I’m G cubed
To the power of 3, I’m all G
since youth I’m original – triple O G
Truth unfictional is all I can be
so unpredictable is all you see
I’m the very first-bet from A to Z
I’m the Alpha-bet, full letter G
I obey the primary rule
a G+ grade since primary school
Look at you – you just do what they say
You failed school – with a straight A

I sling white magic
but I’m Ebonic with my slang
I Ying the worst black tragic
and I bless you with my Yang
I’m a 5 point flicker
flaming star like a Wicca
with my 6 point crew
I’m Israeli like a Jew
fluid IAM swirlin’
druid like I’m Merlin
I flag triple 7
I’m born triple 9
I flip triple 6’s
like every number’s mine
I’m 7’s so I’m root
Eunuchs know its true
I’m Magi iam Wise Man
My badge says I am fly man
I hang with the bosses
cuz I bring the gnosis
Don’t stumble on this capstone
‘cuz heaven is my Dad’s home


Letter to the Court

October 11, 2018

Clerk of Court:
District Attorney:
Honorable Judge:

Regarding bond 18 CR 050313 which was forfeited. I implore your mercy and forgiveness for my failure to appear resulting in this forfeiture. I apologize for not immediately notifying the court after my absence which compounded the trouble. Although my circumstance is not an excuse, I humbly ask that you consider the circumstance surrounding this failure to appear:

I live in a very rural area with no taxi service and no public transportation. I have no drivers license and an even larger hindrance is that I have no vehicle. I was so new to the area that i had not been introduced to mg neighbors who may have been able to help with transportation. Living 10 to 20 miles from court and being unfamiliar with the roads here made walking/hitchhiking/or bicycling difficult. Regardless, i seek not to excuse my absence but to apologize for it.

That $15,000 “Cash Only” bond for the marijuana charge was extremely difficult to make. The surety signer, my employer, had to drive up from Asheville and the funds came from family in Colorado.

The subsequent case regarding my medicine research lab has a $300,000 bond which is impossible for me to make. My research findings are published online in Ph.D. medicine forums and I had expected that the rising interest in my publications would have lead to obtaining a sponsor or a research grant by now, however this lengthy incarceration has prevented that. Furthermore, at present I am unable to call upon family or friends to help me make this unreasonably high bond.

This pretrial detainment, without legal counsel, and in a facility without resources for referencing current law, case law, or general court rules and procedures leaves me significantly hindered from legal preparation.

In my current situation, the only bond I can possibly make is an unsecured appearance bond. Please find mercy on my situation and consider that my research work and nearly 25 years professional experience surrounding medicine and health care systems has the best intentions for society and the community. I submit that my case is misunderstood and the facts will reveal themselves. In the interest of justice, please entitle me to a presumption of innocence by granting me an unsecured bond.

Without any legal references I am unsure how to put myself on the court calendar to hear this motion. My resources have been unable to locate the 23rd Judicial District local rules of the District Court Division, however rule 14.1 for the 26th District states that “Attorneys requesting cases to be added should request the District Attorney to sign the addition slip” therefore this letter has been mailed in duplicate to both the DA and the Clerk of Court.

The extremely lengthy delay in my case in District Court bestows an unfair advantage to the prosecution who perpetually continues the case. Lacking reference for the 23rd District , in the 26th District rules 4.3b states that trial shall be within 30 days of charge. Rules 4.5 state factors to be considered when deciding continuances.

Rules 4.5 state factors to be considered when deciding to grant or deny a motion to continue:

a) effective assistance of counsel
b) the age of the case
c)the incarceration or detention status of the defendant

In consideration of all this, in the interest of justice, and presumption of innocence please grant this motion for an unsecured bond on the next available court calendar.

Furthermore, in the event that we can settle this matter in District Court, I am willing to negotiate. I admit to having been conducting my research without permits, however I have never been party to any sales of controlled substances neither was I in possession of any more than very small amounts consistent with research purposes. To reach a quick resolution, I will forego all civil charges against Ashe County for violation of Due Process, for Malicious Prosecution, for Defamation of Character in erroneous media publications, for confiscation of 138 items which were not subject to confiscation, and for the improper conditions during detainment. Otherwise all of these items will be submitted to the Federal US District Court in the form of a U.S.C. 1983 Civil Suit which is already largely prepared based on the history of this case which is published online at: http://www.GuiltyUntilProvenWealthy.home.blog

The ACLU is interested in representing my case. Please advise me if I should retain them or if we might come to a speedy resolution.

I hope that mercy and forgiveness might prevail between Ashe County and myself for our failures to adhere to proper procedures.

Day 9 – House Divided

I feel VERY STRONG on day 9!  When I close my eyes, the colors I see are a bit brighter than usual.  I had an AMAZING dream – I was bouncing on the earth, and I kept going higher and higher – it was bizarre, as I bounced, the sun got brighter and hotter.  Then after my highest bounce, I landed high up in a mountain that was ice-covered, and the ice was melting from the extra heat that the hotter sun had caused.

I accidentally broadcast some of my thoughts.  I was wondering what day it was, and as I thought, a prisoner in ear shot of me asked another prisoner what day it was.  I won’t need to open my mouth at all pretty soon.  So, as to your question about how day 9 is going:  Wow, I want to go farther than I have ever gone before.

Much gratitude for the 1983 USC info – I know how to use it, and I will put it to good use.

My time in isolation was another fiasco for ACSO:  Lt. Stan Greer threatened me, saying that I would be released “when I eat”.  Ha!  I’m not quitting my religious practice under ACSO threats – and I communicated that to him.  Two days later, he comes and says “ok we will let you out today.”  Then he leaves me there for another three days while all the jailers take my side in the dispute of unjust punishment.

Some deputies LOVE me and some HATE me – like Calloway, who has tried to insult me at meal time in front of the whole dorm.   Some jailers petition Sharon Price on my behalf.

I won that one – I’m back in general population as of a few hours ago.

Fasting from Isolation Cell E4

Captain Price ordered my isolation for 5 days.

I feel like I am being punished for practicing my religion:  I AM a follower of the greatest prophet, Jesus Christ.  Therefore, I practice fasting according to His teachings:

  • Matthew 6:16-17 opens the discussion of fasting.
  • Matthew 9:15 instructs the disciples to fast when they are no longer in the presence of Jesus.
  • Matthew 17:21 says that prayer and fasting will cast out evil.
  • Acts 13:2-3 describes fasting in the early church.
  • 1 Corinthians 7:5 teaches to give yourself to fasting and prayer.
  • 2 Corinthians 11:27 speaks of Paul’s spiritual discipline to fast.

I also follow the Wisdom of Moses, King David, and the prophet Daniel who practiced fasting according to the Holy Bible.  I also follow the Knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad, whom God instructed to eat Syrian Rue in the teachings of the Quran – eating Syrian Rue forces a person to adhere to the dietary laws of Moses:  No pork or shellfish and very little wine or yeast leavening, for example.

I burn sacred incense like frankincense and shittim wood, or acacia, as prescribed by Moses in Leviticus 2:15-16 and Exodus 25:5-6:  Acacia was used to make the most sacred part of the Tabernacle, The Ark of the Covenant, which holds seven lamps and the Altar of Incense.

I also use the knowledge of the ancient shamans who make a sacred drink from acacia and Syrian Rue called Ayahuasca.  Additionally I use the knowledge of the Wise Men of the East, the Magi, who drink Golden Milk made from turmeric and black pepper.  Furthermore, I use the sacred Yopo seed, from the Yopo Tree, which is native to Israel.  The now-extinct natives of the Caribbean Islands, the Taino, grew Yopo Trees in their ceremonial sites in Puerto Rico.

As a US Citizen, the US Constitution guarantees my religious freedom and protects me from persecution because of my religion.  By punishing me for fasting, the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office is violating my Constitutionally protected rights.  I will fast until I cannot stand.

Day 3

I am so tired of the struggle in this jail.  Strangely, at the end of day three, I have not had a hunger pain yet – I have honestly lost the will to eat.  Perhaps I will hit 30 or 40 days with such a hunger free start – maybe finish in a hospital with an IV in my arm?  Is that what it will take for me to find justice?  I’m tired – physically very tired – but no hunger.

Fasting for Justice

They did not wash laundry last week again.  I need another round of antibiotics; I have a terrible sore throat right now.

I am sick to death of this filthy place.  I am in a new dorm.  This dorm previously housed the females – they also had a lice outbreak.  I feel them all over me at the moment – I don’t even know if this is lice – I see nothing, but I feel them.

When Thomas Jefferson said “Give me liberty or give me death,” he was NOT suicidal, and neither am I.  Quite to the contrary:  Give Me Life!  Let Me Live!  My pursuit of happiness is literal:  www.SyrianRue.org/happy

Fasting is a religious right and a spiritual discipline.  It never leads to death – rather, it leads to better health.  I will not put my life in jeopardy – at 20 days, I was never close to putting my life in jeopardy.

Brother, the idea of a hunger strike is lifting my spirits – it is literally my last recourse to this injustice.  I despise the thought of just rotting away in this filthy, disease-infested jail while I hold hope and prayers for my next court date – currently over a month away.

Administration may claim that I am suicidal in order to punish me with medical isolation.  They may even forbid me clothes with which they claim I might hang or choke myself.  Please do not allow them to do this!

Give me life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – don’t give me death.  This place is killing me.  I am anxious to experience the spiritual clarity I remember setting in after 15 days or so – maybe I will go further than before.  This is about more than myself.

Prescription for Depression

My freeworld diet was high in MAOI’s.   In this place, I have become incredibly depressed – months of captivity in filth, with no sunlight, no fresh air, no exercise, and a constant threat of violence are all slowly murdering my soul.  

The doctor prescribed Citalopram:  I used it for about two weeks before I began to experience a side effect of twitching headaches.  I asked the doctor to prescribe an MAOI due to my experience with natural MAOI’s.  

He refused, and instead prescribed Zoloft.

I asked the nurse to print out the side effects for me.  In my opinion, it is criminal to give out harmful drugs like Zoloft, which causes insomnia in 21% of people, nausea in 26% of people, headaches in 22% of people, and a host of other side effects.

I asked the nurse for natural antidepressants, which do not require a prescription and are not controlled substances – I want Syrian Rue.  I want Golden Milk (turmeric & black pepper). 

She said that is not allowed. 

My depression is serious.  I rarely get out of bed anymore.  Some animals cannot be kept in captivity because they essentially lose the will to live – they stop eating.  The food here is poison anyway – even before they poison it.  

At Caldwell, a neighboring county – prisoners are known to have been punished with a water soluble poison that is gone from the body in 72 hours – this is not to kill a person, but to sicken and torture them.

The extent of the corruption is deep.  One person overheard police discussing if they should plant meth on him because they didn’t find any.  In his case they did not, but it’s common.

Searching a property immediately after a fresh arrest is detained in isolation is common here, too – I have met two others that had the same thing done to them.

Inside here, I feel like there is not much left that I can do to help myself.

Official Capacity

The situation I am in is unbearable.  I have virtually no access to law books and I am facing 20 years while being fully self-represented.

I have been asking night shift and day shift deputies for ‘legal request forms’ – paper forms that Sharon Price says must be used for any law lookup request.  Day shift, after being reminded several times, ignored my request.  The night shift said they don’t even know what is a ‘legal information request form.’

Finally, I obtained a nearly impossible to obtain and official “legal request form”:  I asked for the 2018 federal sentencing guidelines for DMT and a list of motions relevant in District Court.

The form was returned, answered by Sharon Price:  She said she is not obligated to give me any legal reference material besides “the general statutes with which I am charged.”  She is mistaken.

Additionally, she took the liberty to offer her own legal advice – which I did not ask for:  Captain Sharon Price wrote, “What you need to do is request standby counsel to be appointed by a judge, as I understand that as of 9-20-18 Mr. Baker is no longer your court-appointed lawyer.”

Huh?  She won’t provide me the legal reference about my rights for standby counsel, despite in a previous hearing I actually requested exactly that and the judge told me “he thinks but is not certain that North Carolina no longer allows standby counsel.”

Where does Captain Sharon Price derive her advice from?  Why is she advising me now?  Now that Garland Baker is not?  The four motions I just properly filed and served on the DA on the 20th – have they been heard?  Why could they not be heard that day?  Do I need to be put on the docket to have them heard?  How is that done?  Why will the DA not speak directly with me?  Especially if I have no legal counsel?
