As most of my regular readers know, I do not like the Farmers Convenience Store, located in Thunderbird Farms, along Papago Road. I've posted stories about this disgusting place on multiple occasions. This store represents all that is wrong with my neighborhood and my nation. A magnet for filth, drugs, drunken Mexicans and prostitutes (who attach signs to their bodies advertising different prices for "front" and "rear" services), the Farmers Convenience Store is the festering puss hole, flesh eating virus or boil that needs to be lanced or eradicated.
A little girl nearly drowned, after falling into a septic tank behind the store. I always knew something bad would happen there. I never figured a drowning, though. I expecting a spree shooting or a fire to be the incident to put them on the map. Fortunately, there was a happy ending for this little girl.
I frequently describe the Farmers Convenience Store using the famous quote from Star Wars, "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. You must be cautious" Video The girl's mother, Emily Howard, is looking for "answers" and inquiries have been launched. I've been rather disappointed that the owners of the Farmers Convenience Store have little or no regard for code compliance. I've been photographing things that are most disgusting and unlawful at this site for more than three years.

Another instance where a higher court found a problem with the Maricopa Justice Court... "A convicted defendant's decision not to publicly admit guilt is irrelevant to a sentencing determination, and a trial court's decision to aggravate a sentence offends the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-recrimination. See State v. Hardwick, 183 Ariz. 649, 905 P.2d 1384 (App. 1995) Under the circumstances presented to this court, the trial court's order requiring Appellant to write a letter of apology constitutes fundamental error."
This court (Corporate/municipal revenue generator) doesn't give two shits about the Constitutional Rights of citizens. Those were my rights, violated by this corrupt court. The above court deliberately and willfully violated my Constitutional rights. The judge knew he was and still did it. It's time for a new broom to sweep clean, this cesspool of corruption.
