    Hey, we're mentioned too!

    ...and numerous personal threats, such as these two from the Austin VooDoo section of www.bikemojo.com: "I hope they give the range roving driving punk ... time in the joint ... you can rape and kill people with a slap on the wrist ... but don't steal bikes ... cuz you're going to the hole, big time."

    From a post on txbra:

    Clayton appeared before the judge this morning. He was unwilling to take the plea offer from the state. He is hoping to get parole. His own lawyer said jail time is pretty much unavoidable. The judge re-set his court appearance for April 29th and said he needed to come back with a decision on whether he wanted to accept the plea offer or take the case to trial.

    Court hearings are a public setting, right? A large contingent of cyclists in the courtroom might encourage little Jimmy to accept the jail time for his own safety.

    Some aspects of the classic sociopath profile below. Sound like anybody we know? This guy will NEVER be rehabilitated or feel remorse or guilt. Too bad Texas does not have a Three Strikes law.

    Profile of the Sociopath

    # Glibness and Superficial Charm

    # Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet...seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used.

    # Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

    # Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities.

    # Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    ......Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims....

    #Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

    #Irresponsibility/Unreliability
    Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause.
    Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

    #Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

    Yes, I was thinking of putting this on my calendar and attending court and I hope we can have a huge contingent of cyclists there. I also hope, in a way, that it goes to trial. I'm thinking that the roster of charges is enough to put the guy in the slammer for a significant amount of time.

    You can scam someone face to face, but it is harder to scam a jury. There will not be too many people willing to testify in his behalf.
    If it does go to trial, 30 or 40 cyclists in a courtroom, in cycling clothes & carrying their helmets ,will make a point with the jury.

    If anyone had their bike or parts stolen, I'd be pinging craigslist and ebay for information tied to the potential sale of items. They might be able to direct you to the new owner. If they deny you, just say "well, once the subpoena shows up you are going to have to give it to me anyway."

    Meg (the prosecutor) is a friend of my wife and I, and came over for dinner Fri. night. It was cool to hear she has that case, and made for some interesting conversation.
