A lot of you know about the Konigun group, headed by one Bryce Dallas, that is suing e-budo and over 10 people who posted on that website. Well, I am one of those people and I want to share with you what they did at my dojo, when I was not there, last night (2/8/06). Folks, if you ever needed proof that these people are dangerous and think themselves above the law, take a little time and read on:
I shared this information elsewhere but I think the whole world should know what kind of people we are talking about here. These events happened at my dojo tonight while I was not there. My daughter feels violated and frightened and came very near to defending herself, as she has been taught. But the truth is, they made a big mistake in Texas tonight.
AFter the silliness of asking me where I work via a pm on e-budo, I did not go to workout. They came to the recreation center, harrassed my students by repeatedly interrupting class, then my wife stopped by to see my daugther and they went after my wife verbally, finally throwing a packet of papers at my wife after trying to convince her she had to take them. She very specifically said "I don't want those papers, I will not accept those papers and I do not know where my husband is". She went back inside the building and called the police, too late though because one of my student's is a deputy sheriff and his wife watched the whole thing and had a deputy there before the city got there. Big, Big mistake, this lady's husband is a deputy and her brother in law is a city cop.
The two assholes came back at my wife and told her she had to pick the papers up, took her picture, my daughter's picture after being specifically told not to by both of them. They were stupid enough to come back and talk to the police, who got them and their car on camera. The officers basically laughed at them when they told them what they were doing and why.
One guy was medium height, brown wavy hair and the other was short and stocky and had a shaved head. They have since been identified as Chris Green and Greg Grayson, two of the students of this guy. They were in an older model green four door Nissan car. One of my students took a picture of at least one of them and as soon as I can get a copy I will post it.
My wife immediately called our lawyer who said, the papers can't be served that way and that someone should pick them up and bring them to his office tomorrow. His words, don't worry about it. Well, okay, legally I won't worry but to intimidate my wife, daughter and people in my dojo, I do worry. Apparently, these guys have done this all over the place and believe they can get away with it.
I know what happened, they did not get my work address, they couldn't get my home so they got frustrated and threw the papers at my wife. They are indeed fortunate that I was not there, because they tried to question several of the kids in my children's class and they scared the hell out of the kids and parents.
I truly am a pacifist, until it comes to children I am responsible for, then all bets are off, to say nothing of my family. My daughter was prepared and the guy with the green shirt got very close to take a picture, had he touched her, he would have not survived the experience unscathed, we practice self-defense and I told her to take no prisoners if someone touched her.
Sorry this is so long,but I am very angry. I don't care about getting served, which I did not because I have never seen the papers, but I do care when they try to intimidate and frighten my students and the parents of my kids. My student, the deputy was not here tonight, he was in training, but it was his wife and I don't believe that the deputy would have been understanding.
Anyhow, when I get the picture I will post it but if you know these two, let me have names. (Already done, as above) The guy with the wavy brown hair has a lisp according to my expert witness, gee my wife, she is a speech pathologist, if she says he had a lisp, he did.
That about sums it up for all the world to know. I told folks that this group and their leader are dangerous. Do you need more proof than what was done to my students and family tonight? If you read e-budo, then you need to be outraged.
I want all of you to know, here on bullshido, that this guy believes he can reach out and touch anyone, anywhere and shut them up. I will repeat, these people are dangerous and, I will add, that his students are mentally at a point where they are looking for a reason to go off on someone. This guy boasted, on e-budo, at Christmas of this past year (05) that he went from 9 to 24 schools and sales of his book increased because of the postings on e-budo. Yep, go there and read it for yourself, he said that and thanked everyone. Just a few weeks later he comes up with this lame lawsuit that says he has been damaged.
Folks, this case proves that frivolous lawsuits can get anyone and force you to spend your money. By the way, there is great support out here on the net and some of the folks on bullshido and other boards have contributed to helping with the cost of all of this. Get involved, it could be you.
