For decades Charlie Anderson based his career on, and made hundreds of thousands of dollars by, participating in punishing citizens with monetary fines and jail time for violating Community Standards. The crimes against Community Standards which he pursued included a multitude of Breach of Peace charges for saying words that Gillette's Puritanical City Ordinances (Official Community Standards), have deemed criminal. These are all words that citizens have always had the First Amendment right to use, but Community Standards made criminal. The same words are now promoted to children under the age of 12 in books currently on the library shelves, although on a weekly basis teenagers and adults continue to be charged with a crime for repeating those words which appear in library books promoted to little kids.
Charlie Anderson was part of the Gillette City Administration and a judge in the Gillette Municipal Court during some of the most corrupt years in the history of Campbell County's administration and law enforcement. By his own logic as a member of the CCPL Board, Anderson was violating somebody's First Amendment Rights every time he prosecuted or sentenced anyone. Now that he is retired Anderson seems deeply disturbed by the idea that, if children ages birth plus aren't trained in every act of sex imaginable, someone's First Amendment rights may have been violated.
Every sex act imaginable includes sex with house pets. A library employee disclosed that there is a book for toddlers that includes kids having sex with house pets, and Elizabeth Albin of the Campbell County Public Library refused to confirm or deny that claim when asked about it.
In 2021, Wyoming did not have any laws against beastiality. Originally the law against beastiality was the law against sodomy, where "sodomy" legally referred to oral sex, anal sex, and beastiality. Since that had to go, a lot of things it covered were suddenly legal. The only reason it changed (again, in 2021) is that somebody was caught in the act with a horse, and Wyoming State Legislators wanted to "send the message of public disapproval."
State Representative Clark Stith (R-H48 Sweetwater County) is quoted:
"I had this bill drafted in the most minimalist way possible. I'm not fond of creating new felonies. My goal here is not to create more work for the county attorney's office, the public defender's office or the district courts or for the prisons. I think it's a rare enough occurrence that having it on the books as a misdemeanor sends the message of public disapproval."
That was how it started... but how did it go?
While the Wyoming State Legislature was prioritizing a new law strictly covering beastiality sex, Byron Oedekoven (Executive Director of Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police) testified that sex with animals happens all across the state. Someone else brought up that an exemption was needed, from criminal charges, for the tremendous number of citizens who are forced to have sex with animals against their will.
Dan Zwonitzer is an openly queer Wyoming legislator who is hailed for championing special treatment and enhanced privileges for minority groups in Wyoming. Rather than wanting equal rights for all people who practice sodomy, Zwonitzer pushed for bestiality to be made a felony rather than a misdemeanor. Of course, discussion involving the Bill focused largely on horses. It is unlikely that any crimes will be charged involving gerbils.
WS 6-4-601 aka HB0046-2021 is a slippery slope. It legislates that it is rape when you cannot prove penetration (meaning that the criminal charge of rape, in Wyoming, no longer requires evidence of any physical act of rape). According to this article in the Cowboy State Daily: "Tara Muir, public policy director for the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, also testified in support of the Bill, whether the crime is considered a misdemeanor or felony." This testimony clearly equated animals to humans by involving an agency dedicated to "Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault."
It seems clear that the real intention of the lawmakers is to single out individuals to apply this law to, with no intention of applying it equally, and that makes it an unjust law. The Fully Informed Jury Association has been working for decades to educate Americans how and why every jury has the duty to judge the legality and validity of the law itself, before considering whether an accused bears any guilt for breaking that law, even if doing that duty as a juror means ignoring a judge's instructions. Of course that same duty is required of all law enforcement including prosecutors, and all judges, but the jury exists to pick up where they fail (or more recently, refuse) to do their part.
Community Standards for which citizens continue to be prosecuted include showing pornography to minors. Librarians should be prosecuted also. They are deliberately choosing this material, and they are not removing it when it becomes clear that it is not educational but rather just pornography.
There is nothing nebulous about Community Standards. Until some of these ordinances and state laws are repealed that violate our Constitutional Rights, the same Puritanical Community Standards are in play that have been for decades, and Charlie Anderson's nebulous argument has no standing.
Thank you for reading. The purpose of my campaigns is to highlight corruption and to get assistance from anyone who is able and willing to help return Gillette and Campbell County and Wyoming to American Ideals, and hopefully a culture that applies the law equally to all citizens regardless of position or social class. Thank you so much for the efforts you are making and have already made. Please forward to everyone that you know who might be interested in the information I share. God Bless You, and God Bless America.
