The second angel sounded his trumpet . . .

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

I did not think of this, until (a) after I saw the U-Tube video of Kendra Arneson, also spelled Kindra, on June 30, 2010.  Apparently, the video was first posted on U-Tube on June 22.  The title page of that U-Tube video is  “Gulf Emergency Summit 6-19-10″ (see  my blog entry June 30).  And this flashed through my mind (b) while I was walking and talking with a dear friend.

Yesterday, when I tried to post about this, my website was apparently getting so many hits that access time was too slow and made it very painful to attempt to blog this any sooner.  In fact my website is still responding uncharacteristically slow.

During my walk and talk with my dear friend, while watching for bears having come upon the dismembered foreleg of a moose calf on the trail near Hillside, it donned on me.  I suppose a man of God of old would say “the Spirit of the LORD came upon me,” but I’m not so confident that I have that level of discernment.  Nonetheless, perhaps it does at particular moments.

As I open my Bible today and study regarding this matter, I find a new passage:

Revelation 16:3-6

“And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.  And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.  And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shall be, because thou hast judged thus.  For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.”  King James Version

What I read yesterday, however, seemed to be what John tried to describe years ago during his exile on Patmos:

Revelation 8:8-9

“The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea.  A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”  New International Version

There are two major points I want to make here.  The first being that the Deepwater Horizon may have looked like a mountain of flame as it collapsed into the Gulf of Mexico and crude oil in the sea may look like blood, especially partially congealed blood to John.  Nonetheless, the function of the substance in the water was to bring death.  The second point being that the modern church has been infiltrated and I do not believe “the rapture” as taught in our churches since 1823 is necessarily biblical.  We may be well into the end times described by the Apostle John.

I ask my brothers in Christ to keep an open mind and remain flexible.  A heart of flesh is flexible and living.  A heart of stone is rigid and not alive.  Think of your mind as your heart.  It must be flexible in order to hear these truths and shake off the chains and fetters of the mind that had been placed there by the evil one.

Another ADOC Inmate Dies from Heat Stroke

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

 

Marsha Powell became another victim of neglect & negligence at the Arizona Department of Corrections earlier today.  Inmate Powell was held for approximately 3 & ½ hours outside in an uncovered holding cell in the Arizona sun across midday in clear violation of ADOC Policy.  Under ADOC Policy use of such holding cells is limited to 2 hours.

 

Inmate Powell was being held outside waiting for a psychological evaluation and apparently was forgotten.  While four (4) corrections officers were sent home on Administrative Leave with Pay under investigation, it appears ADOC mental health staff, commonly known as “psych,” once again gets off scot free.

 

There is no mention of the investigation including ADOC Counseling & Treatment Services and the contributions of “psych” to the negligent demise of Inmate Powell.  Powell apparently was a “psych” patient and/or was to be assessed for possible need for mental health treatment and/or possible emergency intervention.

 

While security at ADOC is obviously understaffed and corrections officers stretched thin, past the point of breaking and past the point of the safe & orderly running of ADOC facilities, such as at the Perryville penitentiary, ADOC was severely compromised under the Napolitano-Schriro Administrations.  ADOC has deteriorated since Governor Brewer took office and Chuck Ryan replaced Schriro earlier this year.

 

Morale at ADOC has been extremely low since Chuck Ryan took over the helm.  Ryan was appointed by Governor Jan Brewer earlier this year.  Since Ryan’s appointment many corrections officers, commonly & wrongly referred to as “guards,” have opted to retire early from ADOC rather than continue working under such terrible conditions.

 

Previously, I reported on the demise of another inmate due to heat stroke at the Arizona State Prison Complex—Lewis (ASPC-Lewis).  That was covered up.  More importantly, during the previous death at a men’s penitentiary, the officers left the inmate exposed purposely in a holding cell outside of Medical to kill that convict!

 

Ultimately, Medical covered up for the negligence of security in that inmate’s death.  At least in the Powell death, Ryan has ordered a (partial) investigation. 

 

One wonders who is in charge of “psych” at Perryville? 

 

One wonders which Psychologist II’s, which Psychological Associate II’s, and which Supervising Psychologist III may have been on duty or were supposed to have been available to see that obviously distressed and in need of treatment female inmate in a timely fashion?

 

Let the investigation be expanded to cover the real causes of Inmate Marsha Powell’s death and the contributory negligence of Counseling & Treatment Services staff for failing to respond in a timely fashion. 

 

Moreover, I urge opening an investigation on the previous heat stroke death due to exposure at ASPC-Lewis.  It appeared that death contained a certain degree of premeditation.

 

Maybe it is time the FBI came in and investigated these undue losses of life?

 

Neither inmate was sentenced to death!
