About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Negotiation Is Over: 6/15/13 update on Camille Marino

6/15/13 update on Camille Marino

Posted by Negotiation Is Over on June 15, 2013

Brutus kissing Camille

On June 3, Camille was removed from Sumter County Jail in Bushnell, Florida (where she had been held since May 22) by the authorities and transported to Wayne County Jail in Detroit, Michigan.  She was booked into Wayne County Jail on June 11.  The next morning, Camille was brought to court to be arraigned on the charge that she violated probation.

Although Camille’s attorney came to the court to represent her that morning, he was told that she was not present.  Meanwhile, Camille was brought before a new judge, Hon. Vonda R. Evans, instead of the judge (Hon. Bryan H. Levy) who had heard her case and sentenced her back in November and December.  Camille was then told she would not be allowed to consult with her attorney.  Instead, oddly, the court assigned a court-appointed attorney to her for that appearance.

While in the courtroom, Camille was shown paperwork describing her apparent “violation of probation” (VOP) which showed that University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) detective Jeff Moran initiated the report of the charge.  This violation is called a “technical violation.”
What occurred was the UFPD discovered one instance of an old NIO video that had been posted to a You Tube account by other parties back when Camille was in jail. Because Camille had not registered that You Tube account, she was unaware that the video existed on that channel.  As soon as she was made aware of this, she removed the video.

Please note, the University of Florida (UF) has supposedly nothing to do with Camille’s case in Detroit, yet they take it upon themselves to task their detective to locate a technical violation they can pin on Camille.

Camille pled “not guilty” to the VOP.  Then, Judge Vonda Evans stated that Camille is being held on $100,000 bond, because she is a “flight risk,” an interesting assessment of an individual who has never missed a single court date or probation appointment.

Camille Marino’s hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, at 9am in Judge Vonda Evans courtroom.  There will be no trial.  The judge will decide the matter herself.

Camille Marino is the Founder and Director of NIO Florida.  After being arrested in Florida and extradited to Michigan, she has been brought to Wayne County Jail.  At the moment, she has no pencil, paper or envelope to write back to anyone.  But, when you are locked up in jail, receiving mail is the high point of the day.
