First Security Bank VP Tim Hargis, Whose Daughter Has Deceived the Police and the Court for over a Decade, Exemplifies the False Accusation Fence-Sitter

April 8, 2018

1

Timothy “Tim” Hargis (hard g) is the father of my false accuser, Tiffany (Hargis) Bredfeldt, whose hanky-panky hijinks and courthouse mischief have fouled a quarter of my life, during which Tim, a bank vice president and pious churchgoer, has passively watched with his hands in his lap. I babysat Tim’s married daughter for three months […]

A Man’s “Tasty Little Balls…What a Treat!”: On RAINES v. ARISTEO, Free Speech, and Censorship

May 16, 2016

4

Typical of cases stemming from court injunctions, the case that occasions this post, Raines v. Aristeo, is a he-said/she-said quagmire. Not disputed is that the woman and the man had a four-month relationship in 2010. He says he ended the relationship after learning “disturbing…information” from her ex-husband about her.

Courts are properly authorized to sanction acts of defamation—publicly lying about someone—but they’re not authorized to prohibit truthful speech or opinion (even if it’s negative), and they’re not authorized to prohibit speech acts before they’ve even been committed.

Many links in this post are to others that will be republished shortly pending review for content that has been judicially censored.—Editor I remarked to a commenter the other day that when I became a vegetarian in the ’80s, I was still a kid, and my family took it as an affront, which was a […]

BLACKMAIL: Using Restraining Orders to Extort and Punish

October 14, 2014

1

“A blackmailer could attempt to blackmail someone with a threat to accuse him falsely, but we should expect such cases to be rare because the victim has a good remedy: sue the blackmailer for defamation. Good but not perfect, because the blackmailer may not have the resources to pay a legal judgment. Criminalizing this form […]

When Girls’ Being Girls Isn’t Cute: False Allegations of Violence and Rape

August 17, 2014

I was just contemplating what I’ve come to think of as “estrogen rage”—a peculiarly feminine mode of violence that orbits around false allegations to authority figures. Furious men do violence, which is why domestic violence and restraining order laws exist. Furious women delegate violence (by lying), which is why the abuse of domestic violence and restraining […]
