Ridiculous. This case is so insipid it defies description. The evidence is so thin it could barely be construed to be a case.
Edgar Steele had survived poisoning designed to destroy his heart valves and his last column announced he was going to run for political office in Idaho. If you are starting a political career, would your first move be to hire a criminal handyman (who has tried to blackmail you) to kill your ex-wife? Edgar Steele was onto the guy, he had told his friends he knew this asshole was a government plant trying to entrap him under some context. Did he then say to this same guy, "Plant a pipe bomb under my ex-wife's car and I'll pay you the money afterwards?"
I don't think so.
Somebody was really, really pissed off that Steele survived their clever arterial poison that they had probably been feeding him for months weakening his internals. They must've been furious when his valve spontaneously popped off and the guy still survived!
Again, one week before this absurd fiasco Edgar Steele had announced he was entering politics after he survived his "heart failure."
The thing about Steele was how tame he was. I've read tougher screeds by postal workers. His regular essays were of such a gentlemanly and measured tone they barely even constituted opposition. I don't think I ever heard him utter an angry word towards any race and what he did write was mostly about the right of all peoples to live the way they want according to the cultures they felt most comfortable with. Steele wasn't just a Christian, he was a good Christian. A random search of the internet could reveal a thousand people with a fraction of his native intelligence and eloquence advocating radical violence and sedition much worse than anything that Steele ever wrote in his columns.
Kwanzania is a joke and whole world is laughing at that pathetic excuse for a nation. What a vile third world toilet this country is. Taking it out on political dissidents, like all failed regimes throughout history. Disgusting. I wouldn't kennel a dog in that sewer.
I've been saving a Kwanzan flag (manufactured in China according to label) for a long time. When that country is a glassed over radioactive crater, I'm going to cut that flag into strips and use it as an expedient hygienic rectal scrubber. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
This is almost as dumb as the case against Matthew Hale.
Government Informant : "Don't you think somebody should do something to Lefkow, you know, make her pay?"
Matthew Hale : "Ummm ... I don't know ... yeah, whatever. I think it's over, myself."
(40 year prison sentence, later revealed that Judge Lefkow was killed by an angry plaintiff in a completely different and unrelated matter)
