      • I DONT SEE YOUR QUESTIONS, BUT I WILL ANSWER. FIRST ONE WAS ; WHAT HAPPENED. GETTING SO SICK AND TIRED OF TELLING PEOPLE ALL THE STUNTS THEY PULLED, NO HUMAN BEING COULD OF ENDURED UNLESS ENDING UP IN A NUT HOUSE, THAT I’D WRITE A BOOK, ONE BOOK TURNED INTO 29 BOOKS OF ‘WHAT HAPPEN’.FIRST THEY MADE A FRAUD PAPER TRAIL. THEY ALWAYS LIE SAY A NEIGHBOR SAID THIS, IT PUTS MORE IMPACT BEHIND A FRAUD REPORT, TO STEALING MY 13 PUPS THEY SOLD FOR 5 THOUSAND EACH, FRAUD EVIDENCE, THEY CAME HERE SHOT 29 ANIMALS NOT HURTING OR BOTHERING NO ONE FOR YEARS, WASNT ONE BITE REPORT. IF THAT WASNT BAD ENOUGH THEY CAME AGAIN, BROKE INTO MY HOME KNOWING WHEN I CAME AND LEFT WITH CAMERAS,BEEN A REAL PICNIC HERE, THEN STOLE STAR, THEN THEY MADE ME TARE MY RV DOWN WITH MY BARE HANDS, EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM,THEY SET MY PLACE ON FIRE TO TRY TO GET ME TO LEAVE.LOST EVERY THING , THEM TRYN TO KILL ME AGAIN RUN ME OFF, TO GET MY LAND TO BUILD A DEVELOPEMENT IN THE FOREST. THEN THEY MADE UP A FRAUD SHEEP ATTACK. MY 2 ANIMALS FOUND NOT GUILTY, DBLE JEOPERDIED ME CAUSE IT WASNT SUPPOSE TO BE IN MY FAVOR.THEN SO THE JUDGE COULD DENY ME RIGHTS TO HAVE THEM, PLUS THEY LIED SAID THEY WERE WOLFS ON RECORD, NOT EVEN HYBRIDS! TO PER SWAY THE JUDGE, FRAUD CASES AGAINST MY CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN, THEY SNUCK IN HERE, BROKE MY STRONG FENCE, TO PLOT OUT A SCENE PRETENDING MY ANIMALS BROKE LOOSE, WHEN THERE WERE LARGE HAND PRINTS ON MY BACK DOOR, THEM SNEAKING IN MY HOME STEALING MY ANIMALS. SHERIFF DOES ABSOLUTLY NOTHING. REMEMBER A DEPUTYS JOB IS; WRITE FRAUD REPORTS SO IT LOOKS OLIKE HE’S DOING SOMETHING. A POWER BOOST TO HIS NUMB SKULL, POWER TRIP. FRAUD CASES, BECAUUSE THERE TOO DAMN STUPID TO CRACK CASES SO THEY GOT TO MAKE THEM UP!ITS BEEN LOCAL CASE, GONE FEDERAL. CANT FIGHT WHEN YA DONT HAVE HELP. GO INTO AMAZON/SHAR SCHWINDT GO ON MY WEB SITE, http://www.Lookingthruwolfeyes.com , go into my face book https://www.facebook.com/shawnee.niki , they stalk me. REMEMBER I NEVER WAS EVEN CHARGED WITH ANYTHING TO BE GOING THROUGH ALL THIS. THEY EVEN HAD A FRAUD PSYCHO EV, SAYING I COULDNT READ OR WRITE, MY SON WAS RETARDED THAT WAS A LIE, THEY CONTINUE TO LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING TO COVER THERE STINKN ASS.I NEVER THOUGHT ID EVER DREAM OF THESE PEOPLE GETTING INTO A CAR ACCIDENT , AND ME WATCHING IT GO DOWN, WATCHING THESE PEOPLE BLEED TO DEATH, ME DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THATS HOW BAD THESE PEOPLE HAVE TORTURED US.NON STOP,.CONSTANT LIES. HERNANDO COUNTY IS THE MOST CORRUPT COUNTY YOU WILL EVER SEE. THEY STEAL, HID ITEMS OUT, SECRETLY PROFIT, THE PERSON DOESNT HAVE A CHANCE IN HELL, TO EVEN HAVE THE PRESS TALK TO THEM. TO GET THE STORY OUT THERE.IF YA WANT TO LISTEN TO LIES, LISTEN TO THEM, IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH, IM HERE TO GIVE IT TOO YOU.

    • the more history I read on my case and life, the more i burn up from so many lies.on a report; I was talking to a friend that was a commissioner/james adkins and said, to him talking about what the county did to my children, and said wood you like to wear the shoe on your foot, have your children living with you, watching the county shoot all your animals in the back yard,,,,, and so on. the county atty lied, said I threttened him retaliated 5 times.lyer. we were friends. then had james adkins lie state he never talked to me till feb 20 2013, when the s.o.b. took 4 of us out to lunch at apple bees 2011 talked to him since at home and at work. we never faught. they lie so damn much. I just wanna watch these people bleed to death. maybe watch a car hit them, be luck enough to be in the same area, or get a phone call to go watch. I have had it with a million damn lies.the more I read, the more lies I see. I sware to god, I wish I could chop there hands off so they could never write a lie again, cut there tounges out for never speaking a lie. you cant emagin what they put me through and our family ,children, just to scare us, run us off for our land. they shot out the windows of my home, set my home on fire, my rv on fire, my truck on fire, flattened all tires out here, camero on fire, firebird on fire, my bedroom on fire, shot 29 animals, stole my health horse no charges.with no deffence. if they don’t charge you, you cant get a atty. a atty would clean house on these s.o.b.s. if there was a brave enough one to take it on.the sheriff even knows the corruption wont do shit. the x sheriff nugent that started it all is a congressman, the more corrupt ,man there is.its not a free country. no judge will get you justice, no president will get you justice. a GUN WILL!

    I hadn’t realized that scientists actually haven’t studied elephant intelligence until the last 10 years. (A note . . . Salon loads as you scroll and the process can be wonky, so if you’re only seeing the first two paragraphs, reload and rescroll.)

    Also, New York Times readers are reacting skeptically to the Times’ romantic presentation, in last Sunday’s magazine, of bringing back extinct animals. Check out the comments . . .

    By itself it’s not related to animals, but there’s an interesting book excerpt on the mechanisms of dehumanization on Salon:
    http://www.salon.com/2014/03/02/the_psychology_of_hate_how_we_deny_human_beings_their_humanity/

    As I read it, I kept thinking of how ‘the [irresponsible] public’ is often dehumanized within animal welfare & rights circles, and my own epiphany as an in-shelter volunteer that people of all kinds love animals – see them as family – and not just people like me and mine.

    I also thought of Dr Koshi, of how she was dehumanized. I especially recalled how the attack on her linked in the post here described her smile as ‘creepy,’ and how – when I saw the photos of her – I only saw a pretty Indian woman with a nice smile, the courteous social smile I often see on the faces of Indian women I know.

    And finally, I thought as well about local politicians and animal control departments and their staff, and how too many of them seem to regard animals much the same way I do mosquitos.

    Woman, 81, jailed for letting her terrier and chihuahua, run at large a year ago. Something is wrong with this judge and the woman’s neighbor.

      I’m certain there is no SERIOUS criminal activity going on in Baltimore, either. SMH
