Latest News from B4Ranch Ping


I just got a phone call from Sam Georges in Solana Beach about todays happenings regarding Robert Thomas Northcut. I found out more about him.

Northcut was in the USN stationed in South Viet Nam. He was a 'river rat' and was injured over in Cambodia. There was 13 men in the boat when the boat exploded from enemy fire. Apparently some men were killed and a few were injured. He was sent to a hospital in Australia to recover.

He has been in Solana Beach for about 10 years. He had another dog for seven years who died of old age. Then he got this German Shepard. This dog worked with the Border Patrol down in San Diego. The San Diego Animal Control did a scan and found the chip in its neck. My guess is that the dog has barked and lurched at Mexicans, which he was trained to do! They have found a police dog trainer who has offered to work with the dog to retrain it.

The Mayor in San Diego forwarded all the emails he got up to the Mayor at Solana Beach. Literally "hundreds of emails" is the term Sam used. The City manager of Solana Beach is "looking into what they can do" to get Northcut his dog back and they are probably going to start treating him with the respect he deserves. With this much publicity we have got them damn scared and on their toes. I expect that very soon things will be much better for Northcut and his dog.

I guess they were shocked that this has become an "international issue". Well, it is because of you folks that this has happened. Sam got a call from someone who said it was in the National Review (?) newspaper. The man hung up without giving his name. I am so proud that you all have taken the time to step forward. It is things like this that will make all cities start looking at war veterans with a different scope. They will be afraid that if they mistreat a veteran the same "international issue" could be brought into their city showing how cold hearted they are.

Sam is going out of the country for two weeks on Wednesday. His assistant, Gail will be answering his phone. Jennifer is also available to receive phone calls. Stephen Jaffe was the one who asked Jennifer to defend Northcut in court to get him out of jail. She did it Pro Bono. What a great lady!

Here's what I e-mailed:

I trained in California before going to Vietnam. I remember one of your fine people, after looking at my haircut, saying: "You know, I don't have time to talk to you, you're not going to live long enough." Well, while many of my friends didn't live, I did.

Upon returning to California from Vietnam, some of my friends were spit on by your good people.

With your treatment of Robert Thomas Northcut, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, I can see that you people are still the same.

I hope and expect that your area will feel a significant negative economic impact because of your mindless cruelty. And I hope that those who now serve us are treated with respect and consideration - but with people in the world like you, I DOUBT IT.

It's a good thing that there are better people in the world than you, otherwise you'd be sucking up to some Nazi or Communist scum.

Best wishes,

[My Name]

Vietnam vet, USMC

Hope I didn't offend anyone.

This is a reply I received from Jennifer Lynch, (one of the few lawyers in the world that I respect).

Thanks. We got the Mayor's office in San Diego to help as they can since it is really Salano Beach not San Diego which was the culprit. They said the will refer calls to that Mayor and she said she would help by "quiet inquiry" in getting TJ out. I'm still awaiting to hear whether the pound, 'dangerous dog task force" will find TJ a "public nuisance." If they do I, will request hearing and appear on TJ's behalf to see how we can deal with that. Sam is also looking into getting a volunteer trainer for the dog. We'll do what we can. In the interim, we will try to get a fund set up for him. Please let people know they have helped a great deal in responding. Thanks.

My email to her;

Subject: Robert Northcutt
Sam & Jennifer,
Click on these websites and you'll see what we've got going so far. Monday morning is when the overflowing outhouse is going to be set on fire in the Mayors office.

I just read mystomachisturning's posts and it seems she (Lucy) has changed her story. But do keep in mind that she did admit to me that she didn't know that Mr. Northcut was a veteran until she read the press release. This leads me to believe that her story has changed to reflect info she receives and I bet that a lot of this has to do with us here at FR. I don't think she was ready to deal with such an overwhelming response from us FReepers!
It also doesn't seem to me that I got as much detail as mystomachisturning did and it was probably because my phone was going out on me and the conversation was breaking up a little here and there.

I do feel however that everything is going to work out just fine for Mr. Northcut and TJ :)
My step dad was a Vietnam Vet, I was just a peace time vet but the stories he would tell were just terrifying he had lots of problems and I had the upmost respect for him (and all Vets) and it was out of love from all of us that he was able to overcome lots of horrible things almost daily, until he succumbed to Leukemia a few years ago---with love all things are possible and seeing what we are accomplishing here at FR for Mr. Northcut is very touching.

Thank You For The Flag, once more, TGYC.

Now...We know what Sam, and the Mayor of San Diego have done and what they're going to do.

My question is: What is Northcutt now going to do?

Then he got this German Shepard. This dog worked with the Border Patrol down in San Diego

Well, H!ll Fire! That explains a lot- that's a valuable, trained dog. No wonder he's barking!

I'll use your link to send the SOB's another note.

I sent this:


Gentlemen,

I just pulled this off the 'net:
"Then he got this German Shepard. This dog worked with the Border Patrol down in San Diego"

Yes, it's about Northcut & TJ. TJ is a valuable, trained dog- that's why he's barking, he's trained to do that. If Northcut has mental or emotional problems, he needs help- you owe him that much, for the freedom you enjoy.
The Web and the World are watching.
Cordially,
XXXX

Thanks bro! Too bad we had to get some "zips in the wire" before we got rolling really good. That Cultural Jihad dude really pissed me off. The dude has not served yet feels qualified to talk about veterans issues.

Perhaps he ought to rethink his screen name in this time of war.
