The discussion of the sentencing of a South Dakota Penitentiary inmate to death for murdering a guard in a foiled escape attempt has taken an even uglier turn.
A South Dakota legislator, District 25 representative Stace Nelson is a conservative christian (go figure), albeit a decorated Marine, who spent a career brutalizing the people within his charge as a monolithic executor of forced compliance through intimidation.
What Rep. Nelson has done in disrespectful rants to his detractors at Madville Times and at the so-called South Dakota War College, the quasi-official mouthpiece of the South Dakota Republican Party and where this interested party has been blocked from comment, is nothing short of cyber bullying.
His anger and controlling personality are pathologies, contraindications of the power drug he uses to fog a world that doesn’t conform to his delusions. He shoves his creation superstitions down the throats of his virtual victims and crams the hose of his coerced military patriotism into any orifice that his captives leave unprotected. The glaring difference between Representative Nelson, a former military police investigator, and Eric Robert, the prison guard's murderer, is that Nelson offended legally under the auspices of the Marine Corps.
The fact that Mr. Nelson has been a CASA participant as he taints the very clients for whom he purports to advocate should frighten every social worker to the core. How a morbidly obese man, who models an unhealthy body image that often eclipses the ample shadow cast by convicted sex offender Ted Klaudt, a former GOP South Dakota legislator now serving time for his crimes, has intimate contact with rudderless young people frankly scares me beyond terror.
Nelson wasn't drafted: he solicited for and was hired to do a job and was paid for it along with associated benefits.
Unless and until the electorate stands up to Stace Nelson's brand of Republican dystopianism, We the People are doomed to endure Patriot Act after Patriot Act where freedom from tyranny dies a slow, whimpering death.

Also: recall that interested party called Herman Cain's propensity for dalliance back in August.
