Dear Abbey, How’s prison?

“He said black people don’t belong in Bayview,” reported Lt. Stu Miller of the Kootenai County (Idaho) Sheriff’s Department. Daren Christopher Abbey, 28, who has neo-Nazi tattoos and told police he is an “independent skinhead,” was allegedly harassing another customer at a bar. But Marlon L. Baker, 46, who is black, wasn’t taking the bait. To avoid a fight, Baker walked out, but Abbey followed him, threatening
to stab him and using racial slurs, witnesses say. After “quite some distance,” Miller said, Baker turned around when Abbey got close and punched him one time, in the face. When deputies arrived, Abbey was still unconscious. He was treated for broken bones in his face, and then jailed for malicious harassment, the state’s equivalent of a hate crime law. The back of Baker’s shirt read, “Spokane Boxing Club Champion”, Miller noted. “If he had been able to read that, maybe he wouldn’t have done that.”

A THOUGHT: Lucky for Abbey that Idaho has one of the smallest percentages of Blacks in prison!

Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
