Weimar to McCarthy redacted

Since I discovered the open viewing of pornography at the Orland Park Public Library (OPPL) in the Chicago area, many strange things have occurred including assaults on my credibility and character. It began with the bizarre claim that my children weren’t with me in the library and has now progressed to the malicious use of the police to silence me. In this installment I will show how an elected board and public library district is abusing its power to intimidate and quiet all criticism while at the same time refusing to use their authority to go after the real criminals who have committed sex acts in the library.

1. October 8th, 2013: Mary Weimar sends an email to Tim McCarthy, Chief of Police of Orland Park, asking him to investigate two videos on my YouTube channel. One of them is a song I wrote about the 2nd amendment.

Contrast this effort to involve the police for no cause, to the reluctance to call police on October 23, 2008 when a patron reported a man masturbating in the library. Police were not involved on that occasion and in fact, the person who complained was moved to another computer station.

2. October 23, 2013 James Fessler called the police and claimed he was being harassed by phone calls and “annoying emails.”

In order to tie his critics to the phony phone calls and “annoying” emails and bulk up the false reports against library critics with the police, Fessler named Kevin DuJan and me as “subjects” of his concern despite there being no link to either of us and any of the “annoying” things happening to him. One of his complaints detailed that someone had sent this satirical picture to him.

This picture so upset Fessler he felt the need to call the police to report that someone had sent it to him. In the investigation that Fessler insisted the police conduct at considerable cost to the taxpayers over “annoying emails” and amateur prank calls, they found that “John Jenkins” was sending missives from somewhere in Crown Point, Indiana and that other emails were coming from another unnamed man unconnected to DuJan or myself. The “harassing” phone calls were not traced to anyone. Fessler was not charged with making a nuisance call to police.

For contrast, note that on August 20, 2009 police were not notified about a man who was “fully exposed” and masturbating in the computer lab. Further the staff notified the perpetrator that he would be asked to leave on the second occurrence.

Moral relativists are unable to draw any lines. The end result is that they side with public wankers over suburban moms.

I'm not sure why our comments were reported and removed. Anyone who thinks the police should be involved over a satirical cartoon belongs in Syria.

I think we've been visited by "Laura" from the Patch under a new name. Her only defense of this horrible policy and the behavior of this library board is to attack the messenger's actions to try to deflect attention from the issue, which is unfiltered pornography, both legal and illegal (without filters there's no way to stop that) in a library where children can be exposed to it, or encounter adults who have been excited by it. The police reports and internal reports tell the story. But you won't hear "No Surprise" say anything about that ridiculous and dangerous situation.

No Surprise, I understand your need to focus on the messenger so as to blunt the message. That's fine. Fortunately, victims of OPPL policy, Linda Zec comes to mind, have provided very specific and detailed facts that must be addressed by the Village of Orland Park so as to minimize the potential for liability, among other things. No doubt in my mind they will care not a whit about your personal attacks. The story is bigger than Megan and Kevin now. It's now the Mayor, and Linda, and the librarians she said might be willing soon to speak out about this. You won't be about to attack them all, No Surprise, and pretty soon this matter will be resolved one way or another. If the porn gets kicked out of the library, right in the very backyard of the ALA where ALA showed up to propagandize, that will spell the beginning of the end of the ALA's ability to mislead local populations about library law and the case they lost big in the US Supreme Court.

The police have murders, man slaughter, drunk driving, child abuse, theft, and other crucial issues to attend to. The board should be embarrassed to expect police to devote their time to Megan.
