James Arthur Ray :: Life Sentence

... I'm helping!

You know who’s in jail right fucking now?

Orenthal James Simpson

He killed Ron and Nicole … and then walked after a disastrous celebri-trial that made everyone look bad … and locked in Los Angeles’ hold on the title of most pathetic and useless American city {sorry Cleveland … you tried}.

But things didn’t really work out for that murdering motherfucker in the end … and that disastrous trial was an important beginning to the long form justice that he was eventually served.

James Arthur Ray was sentenced to two measly years for the horribly painful deaths of three complete innocents. Judge Darrow remained consistently naive of the fundamental reason for James Ray’s presence in his courtroom … intentional life destroying manipulation for profit. It’s quite staggering :: but secret problems are secrets to everyone … including judges and juries and doctors and lawyers and all the other people you think are special that aren’t.

Money talks :: and bullshit … also talks. So if you’ve got both then that’s a lot of talking.

Says the no longer gagged Detective Diskin to the fake robot today …

“I’ve been investigating this case longer than James Ray will spend in prison.”

Ha! It’s not funny … cause it’s true.

Two years isn’t fair … and it isn’t right. But this celebri-trial wasn’t a disaster :: far from it. It was an eye opening :: professionally run thing … that ended with a verdict. Ms. Polk and her people :: and Det. Diskin and his people :: managed to remind us that :: so many times :: good people in the government really are doing a surprisingly good job at doing a good job.

It’s a most excellent start to a war that was NEVER going to be won in one battle.

“But Droid :: now he’ll go right back to scamming!”

Of course he will. Know why? Cause there is a sick machine that doesn’t care what you’ve done … or what you’re doing. It’s organized … and it destroys everything it touches. The sick machine kills :: and it must be stopped … it’s the fight worth fighting.

But James Arthur Ray is a loser … and he’s lost. He’ll never get back what he had :: he’ll never be a danger to a mass market again … not least because I’m not going anywhere. Things aren’t the same now … things don’t have to stay the same.

James Arthur Ray lost before he even started this game. From The Sociopath Next Door

“From a psychologist’s point of view, even the ones in prestigious positions, even the ones with famous names are failed lives. For most of us, happiness comes through the ability to love, to conduct our lives according to our higher values (most of the time), and to feel reasonably contented within ourselves. Sociopaths cannot love, by definition they do not have higher values, and they almost never feel comfortable in their own skins. They are loveless, amoral, and chronically bored, even the few who become rich and powerful.”

It might not feel like it today :: but we won this battle :: and we are going to win this war. Each of us doing our own part … one day at time.

You know who’s in jail right fucking now?

    1. @Bonnie,
      team Sheila!
      You go girl!

      Put that scum where he belongs for the longest possible time.
      Gotta remember the probabilities– with the shivs and all.

    2. @Bonnie, Good for Ms Polk!! She didn’t like the way the prosecution or the case was treated by the judge anymore than we did..

    3. @Bonnie,
      that would be perfect justice … for the whining scumbag, clearly with NO remorse, to be wasting yet more time/energy, utterly still determined to harm the families (and anyone else he can) by making it clear he has no remorse/takes no responsibility and is even trying to get the money back?!… with Shiela Polk at the helm, her having seen what the judge did, there feels like there’s real hope/confidence. Brilliant, Ms Polk! Hope jar’s shut up at last, that his pursuance of such obviously wrong absolution truly backfires in much more jail time.

    1. @Solar Flare,

      Old news, solar flare. Show us a clip of the big blue genie instead–the best bit, for me in the Seekrit–shame it was DeathRay that shared billing in that frame.
      That genie though, he works for me.

      Mills and Boon, eat your heart out.

    1. @Bonnie,

      Ahh … another tactic to avoid payment of monies he owes to the victims as well as court costs approximating $80K for both.

      As if he hasn’t stashed monies outside the US.

      1. @Bethann,

        The worst of it is, Thomas Kelly is listed as a legal aid available for that district. I wonder how that works. Geez.


        “As if he hasn’t stashed monies outside the US”

        You got that right! No two ways about it. He may be stupid, but he’s not stupid!

        1. @Bonnie,

          I’m cringing, yet thought this might be the circumstance with Kelly.

          I recall reading the DT believed the victims were not entitled to any more monies due to the insurance settlements.

          I’m pleased Sheila Polk has taken a continal pro-active approach with this case.

  1. Oh, Good Goddess. Peter Wink, who is Kevin True-dough’s marketing VP, just posted this on Facebook: “Just got off the phone w/James Arthur Ray’s brother. James is doing well. Also heard from Earlene Vining this morning and Ed Foreman is rocking! Some early Christmas gifts!”

    Now, I have no idea who Earlene and Ed are, but I did respond to the bit about Ray, writing:
    “Meanwhile, this Christmas — as last Christmas, and the one before, and every Christmas from now on — the families of Colleen Conaway, James Shore, Kirby Brown, and Liz Neuman will face the holidays without their loved ones, thanks to James Arthur ‘Death’ Ray. I guess ‘gifts’ are in the eye of the beholder.”

    I reckon we can expect some more public statements from True-dough about how poor James has been oppressed, repressed, and suppressed by the big bad forces that are trying to destroy the selfish-help industry. I’d mosey on over to the KT Radio Network and take a look, but I have to go fix dinner. Maybe later.

      1. @Cosmic Connie,
        OMG..TruDough is calling it a “Tragic Accident” and saying that the “government” was just going after Ray on a whim..

    1. @Cosmic Connie, Speaking of Peter Wink, who once worked for Joe Vitale, and which apparently did not work out (surprise):


      Wink really blows his own horn, and he has certainly followed around like a puppy a “who’s who” of people that might otherwise be roasted here.

      Despite the extravagant claims and frenetic “hob knobbing,” he just sounds insecure, all over the map, and kind of lost. That’s the perfect combination for ending up as someone else’s fall guy.

      1. @Thom, Oh, yes, I’m well aware of Peter’s past association with Joe Vitale (Peter himself told me he never worked *for* Joe, but *with* him). The two “split up” very shortly after Joe’s disastrous trip to Russia in September of 2009. Shortly after the split I contacted Peter via email to get details. We ended up talking on the phone for hours in December of 2009. But Peter wanted to focus on the self-help industry and the positive as well as the negative aspects of the industry rather than on gossip. I thought, what the heck, why not. I thought it would be something different for me. I eventually turned our conversations into a series of blog posts, published in April and May of 2010. You can Google “Peter Wink Whirled Musings” to find them if you are interested.

        Some people told me my posts were a waste of time and that I was just being “played.” But I don’t think it was time wasted, and if I was being played it really didn’t work out so well for the player. Believe it or not, I truly wanted to try to present “the other side” in as neutral a manner as possible for me. I think the posts are useful as much for what they don’t say as for what they do say. I won’t go so far as to claim that they were strategic, at least not on my part. (Let me just note that I end up running my blog the way I want to, despite hearty encouragement from others to run it another way.)

        Getting back to the focus of Salty’s thread here, James Ray: At the time I was speaking and corresponding with Peter in 2009 (and in 2010, in the conversations on my blog), he said he really did not know much about the James Ray case and wanted to withhold judgment until he knew more. That was over a year before True-dough started mouthing off about the case.

        Of course, that was then and this is now. I have not spoken to Peter recently, but in my opinion, his Facebook posts are strategic for the most part, and generally in the service of promoting some of True-dough’s agendas. That’s why I ventured a guess that his mention of speaking with JAR’s brother was a harbinger of yet more True-dough yammering about poor James and the evil forces who want to shut down the self-help industry. I wouldn’t even be surprised if True-dough offered some of the resources from his own defense fund to help JAR, but I may be stretching there. It’s only speculation on my part.

  2. This jsmes arthor ray is Just Another example Of people getting, away with murder due To having lots.Of Money seems like The.more.Money you Have The less tome you pay For yput crime.

    1. @Death Ray Sucks,

      I was in super-curious mode and AZ is so kind as to provide all this stuff online. The infraction, on 2/24/2012 was “DISRUPT COUNT OR OUT”. According to this list of infractions
      that’s gotta be No. 11B:

      Disrupting an Institution Count and/or Being Out of Place – – Disrupting an institution count by purposely interfering with staff, or failing to be in an assigned bed or location for count; failing to be in an assigned area; being out of place in an unauthorized area.

      It was appealed a few days later, 2/29/2012. There’s an “Appeal Outcome” code = 2 that I don’t know about. But the text says “FINDINGS UPHELD”. So I don’t appealing worked.

      There’s a list of possible penalties for class B infractions here:

      I think it’s unlikely that very much of that happened to him on a first offense though.

      It also appears he’s scheduled for supervised release in April:

      I’m given to understand the Salty Droid is preparing a bag of chips for James A. Ray (a.k.a. That Wannabe Guru-God Fuckwit Who, Through His Unforgivable Hubris And Negligence, Caused The Deaths Of Four People).

      Furry cows moo and decompress.
