Council Member Don Samuels Vs. Al Flowers In Federal Court--Details Coming On The "Toe Stepping Trial" Which Started TODAY!

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

The long-awaited and much anticipated "civil rights toe stepping trial" began today in United States District Court: fringe mayoral candidate Al Flowers versus City Council Member Don Samuels in a bizarre court battle which is about civil rights...well, sort of.

Flowers is alleging Samuels stepped on his toes. This was during a JACC press conference at which Flowers was shouting loudly and, generally, being a verbal bully and a scary loon to the point somebody called the police. Click here to see video of Flowers in action that day. Click here to see a second video from a different angle, no sound.

Oh, wait, it gets better: when Don supposedly stepped on Al Flowers toes, Don HAD HIS BACK FACING AL FLOWERS.

Oh, wait, it gets even better: There are not one, but TWO video tapes depicting what happened, and what the tapes appear to depict is not Don Samuels assaulting Al Flowers, but rather Al Flowers FORCIBLY SHOVING DON SAMUELS FROM BEHIND.


I was in court most of today watching the proceedings. After the first viewing of the video tape, the look on one juror's face said it all: I predict Al Flowers will not win this case, will not pass go, will not collect three dollars.

Many details to follow, stay tuned, hoping to get something up TONIGHT.

Man, you have to have a lot of patience to be councilman. Don is a man of integrity, being attacked by useless, weak thugs.

I saw Flowers in action at several other JACC meetings.

All the defense has to do is call Flowers as a witness and let him rant for a bit

The jury will come to sentencing all wearing steel-toed boots-lol.

I predict the jury will be out less than an hour.

One troll comment rejected.

There isn't a new marshall in town. It's the same marshall, but he has a new attitude toward trolls.
