I have to be honest with you. I think about it often. Not a night goes by when I do not think about it as I crawl in my warm bed beside my sweet wife of 35 years.
Whoa, Coach, that’s rather personal, and we really don’t need to hear about it…
“Will this be the night that the black limos pull in my driveway? Is this the night that the SWAT Team goons bust down my door and haul me off to the slammer?”
Oh. Well. That’s really weird. In fact, it’s remarkably paranoid. I just so happen to have a sweet wife of 35 years, too, and a warm bed, and I’ve never had the slightest concern about the police busting into my house. I guess that’s one of the privileges of being white, middle-class, and having a clean conscience. So why is Coach worried that he’ll get arrested?
I am being dead serious. I really do think about it every night because that is what they did to Dr. Kent Hovind.
Actually, no, they didn’t. Not even close.
The Hovinds were depositing somewhere between $1 and $2 million dollars in their bank account every year from their Dinosaur Adventure Land business, but somehow, mysteriously, they also claimed to have no income at all. Meanwhile, they had employees for whom they never paid any taxes — almost half a million dollars was due. In one month before their arrest, they stealthily withdrew $430,000 dollars in sums just under $10,000 at a time to avoid bank reporting requirements.
This was white collar crime of a particularly blatant sort. The litany of his offenses was long and damning. There was a SWAT team involved in the arrest, because Hovind also had guns all over the place.
Unless Coach Daubenmire has been raking in lots of cash and not reporting his income honestly to the IRS, he shouldn’t be worrying.
Strangely, Daubenmire goes all bleeding heart over Hovind’s plight.
Prison is a place for violent, hardened criminals. It is not a place for people who simply violate codes, statutes, and ordinances. Sentencing to prison a non-violent individual simply for breaking a “law” is inhuman. It is, in fact, a life sentence in that it destroys the perpetrator, the family, and the financial future of the family. The punishment does not fit the crime. Restitution…paying back the victim plus damages…is the solution spelled out in the Bible.
But Daubenmire thinks Obama ought to go to prison for Obamacare. I suspect his views on prison might be colored by the fact that his son is a convicted pedophile.
Kent Hovind is a perfect example of the tyranny of the legal system. Known lovingly as Dr. Dino because of his affinity for dinosaurs, he is one of the nation’s foremost apologists for Creation Science.
No, he calls himself “Dr Dino”.
In many ways Kent Hovind is a political prisoner. It was what you would expect in a communist country like North Korea.
Classic Daubenmire hyperbole.
This guy is so stupid I just can’t go on. It’s actually kind of amazing: you deal with Kent Hovind for years, and you’re thinking that you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel here…and then you encounter the fanatical defenders of Hovind, and you realize there are people who are even more ignorant.
