Today’s arraignment in Norfolk Superior Court was a complete disaster for the Commonwealth and the first of many victories to come for Team Turtleboy. Although we came to court fully prepared to defend ourselves against the 16 charges I’ve been indicted for, we didn’t have to argue any of them because the Commonwealth chose not to re-read their 70 page indictment of my greatest hits. The big takeaway on the day was that the stay away orders were all dropped and for the first time Special Prosecutor Ken Mello seemed flustered that he didn’t get his way.

Mello claimed that I was encouraging my “minions” to harass witnesses.

The fact that he would degrade our followers as if they are mindless idiots blindly following the leader, instead of the thoughtful, intelligent, and civically engaged citizens they are, speaks volumes of his disdain for Free Karen Read supporters.

Mello brought up his concerns that he believes Turtleboy violated the conditions of bail, which he provided in a video to the court.

“This is a disingenuous way for the defendant to encourage others to harass witnesses and picket in front of their homes, etc.”

This was the video he was talking about:

“I can’t encourage you guys to hold protests. But I saw someone post last week that we shouldn’t hold protests, Aidan wouldn’t want us to. I am not saying I want you to. What I am saying is you don’t speak for me. Don’t put words in my mouth. Especially when I can’t speak and respond. I think everyone knows the type of things I support and I like. For instance, I like how all these people are going to board of selectman meetings. I like that that’s happening indenpendent of me. If I were to be prevented from going to D&E Pizza and couldn’t hold protests anymore, and all of a sudden the protests stopped, who would like that? Who wins in that situation? Use your head.”

I couldn’t have been more clear – I am not encouraging anyone to hold protests because I didn’t want to do something that could be construed as indirect contact. I just don’t like it when people speak for me. However, I do enjoy watching people protest without me because it proves that this whole thing isn’t just about me. As my attorney pointed out:

“Mr. Kearney has a First Amendment right to encourage people to exercise their First Amendment rights. He can share his views with his readers or his viewers and they can do what they want. He’s allowed to encourage them to speak out against what he sees as corruption, what he sees as mismanagement of the Read case, et cetera.”

This is exactly why the stay away orders were so problematic to begin with – we knew that the Commonwealth would take my words out of context and present them to the court in bad faith in order to have me violated and sent to jail for 90 days. As long as those were in place I had a cloud hanging over my head. There are no shortage of people with nothing but time on their hands who hate watch every episode of the Turtleboy Live Show, hoping to find some clip they can argue is “encouraging indirect contact.” They all have Ken Mello and Brian Tully on speed dial.

But luckily as a result of Ken Mello’s ineptitude there are no stay away orders any more. That’s because Rule 58, which applies to district court, allows the judge to put stay away orders in place against defendants, but Rule 57, which applies to superior court, does not allow judges to put stay away orders in place. In other words, by indicting me and moving the case from district to superior court Ken Mello accidentally restored all of my First Amendment rights.

Who’s a minion now?

Ken Mello was like the kid who didn’t do his homework but tried to read his book report to the class anyway.

Mello: “Perhaps language that encourages others to do so. Maybe not even mention the names of the victims that appear here. If you see it you know what it is, but it’s hard to define it.”

Krupp: “Under what statute do I have the authority to compel Mr. Kearney to stay away and have no contact with the victims?”

Mello: “Your honor, it’s common practice…”

Krupp: “I’m not talking about common practice Mr. Mello.”

Mello: “Fashion some kind of order preventing the defendant from going online and encouraging his followers to continue the intimidation.”

Krupp: “What do you want me to say?”

Mello: “That he should not….uhhh….encourage, intimidate, directly or indirectly, to have his supporters approach witnesses.”

Krupp: “That’s what the district court says.”

Mello: “I don’t believe it precludes this court from doing so.”

Krupp: “Do you have a case that says that? You came in asking me to set release conditions that you knew he wasn’t going to consent to. I’m looking for some authority that you might have indicating that I have the power to do it.”

Mello threw up a hail Mary when he asked the judge to impose a $1 bail and “ask that he be ordered to obey all laws.”

Krupp: “I don’t have to order him not to commit a crime. He knows that if he commits a crime, he’ll be back in front of the court in quick order. You’ll make sure of that, Mr. Mello, I’m sure.”

Loved the subtle jab at the end.

“We know you’re a whiny little minion who’s constantly in here looking to violate him because you’re Chris Albert’s bitch and he told you to.”

Here’s the thing Ken – no one is allowed to commit crimes. It doesn’t just apply to people released on bail.

Truth be told I would’ve been happy with a win or a loss today. You can’t overturn the unconstitutional statute if you don’t get to the SJC, and you can’t get to the SJC if you don’t have a loss to appeal. But I’ll settle for the complete and total victory of having my First Amendment rights restored, and it was an early Christmas to watch Ken Mello get dressed down like that. This was the first of many victories to come for not only me, but for the dispatcher, the Canton 9, and Karen Read.

  1. Watching Mello get Schooled and then stutter and mumble like that, was the highlight of my week! Bet M. Morrissey and C.Albert are not happy with Mellow.

  2. Big WIN for Aidan today.

    I wonder if Ken Mello is figuring it out yet? Maybe asking himself why he was the “chosen” one? I feel a mixture of emotions for him… Anger that he is stupid enough to go along with the DA’s plan and embarrassed for him that he doesn’t know any better. But boy today was not a good day for him. This is career ending for him.

    What about Lally? Could Lally be brought up on Prosecutorial Misconduct? Sure seems like his actions qualify for some charges. Probably career ending for him as well.

    What about the poor “victims”. No protections anymore.. That’s beautiful how today turned out.

    How about all the effen money this is costing? A District Attorney has an obligation to the state/tax payers to not bring a case forward that they know they can’t win and yet Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey has two cases going and both are not winnable.

    And lastly those Troopers.. Hmmm… let’s be real.. This is not the first time they have compromised an investigation. NO WAY.. You don’t just decide one day to deviate from your work ethic like this. NOT A CHANCE.

    I take some joy in knowing that the holidays will be filled with anxiety, fear, and uncertainty for all those involved with the killing of John O’Keefe and the cover up..

    To the rest of you… Happy Holidays

    1. I hope Aidan takes on the healey regime next! No one else has the balls to stand up to these treasonous bastards! How dare that ugly bimbo spend tax payers money supporting illegal aliens!
      How about biden crime family after that?

  3. I despise the State in this case for violating all of our rights by extension through their efforts to muffle you. I don’t say this lightly: Those involved in this, including Rafferty, Mello, Chris Albert and Tully and his buddy Fahkaki should be truly, utterly ashamed of themselves for being so vindictive. Above them all is Morrissey for his feckless ignorance of the law and trying to bully citizens out of their rights as Americans in a Republic. To him, goes the label of traitor.

    1. Best comment ever. You win

      I’m am usually a huge supporter of Law Enforcement. This entire Canton thing has me questioning everything I ever knew. Fuck these fools trampling on our rights. Who are they to say who is a journalist

    Corrupt Canton villagers gettin some very high priced lawyer bills also
    Awww . . .
    Maybe they could start some crowd fundin

    hahahahahahahahahaaa ha !

    coal for you

  5. Where’s Albert Sharon and all the canton douchebags today? Licking their wounds, that’s where. Hey Chris, how mad were you when Yellow Mello got his ass handed to him? Great weekend ahead turtle riders, fuck the canton scum

    1. Is Albert Sharon Krusty, Jackie D, JM, Mike G, Lizzie P? They are all the same to me. Just a bunch of degenerates with very ugly insides. Mike G and Krusty may seem worse than the others but really they are all very pathetic souls.

    2. I was just thinking the same thing. “Sharon Albert” comments on all his stories about how he’s gonna get what’s coming to him, blah blah blah. Funny they don’t have shit to say now…..

      1. I apologize for not commenting sooner, I ended up with a terrible laceration on my nether regions from aggressively masterbating to some screen shots of Aidan leaving court smiling, it’s gotten quite infected!! Truth be told, all my negative comments were a direct result of my confusion over my sexuality. 🐢 FKR 🐢

  6. Congratulations to you and the first amendment. The commonwealth is used to the auntie bev treatment. It was great to see them being held to account. I would expect with the states unlimited resources they will add some attorneys will some brains to bail mellow out.

  7. Boom! Can’t wait to see a CA spit roast in front of his grimy pizza joint! After all he’s a witness But not really😂. He’s also a first amendment guy but not really.

    1. Well that will scare em! You’re such a pussy you make empty threats, anonymously, and online! What a fucking tough guy you are!

    2. D&E security team: Roast beef Ronnie, Cailou, and fat Jim Farris. My grandmother wouldn’t be intimidated by you clowns.

  8. Well they call him Special Mello for a reason. Then calls random f citizens Minions that’s professional 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

  9. Judge Krupp’s last statement to Mello says it all.
    It’s pretty obvious you are wasting the judge and the courts time.
    The whole thing is just a joke.
    An expensive and criminal joke on behalf of Norfolk County DA.
    Clowns with power. The more they pull, the more they expose themselves as corrupt.
    You would think there is someone with a brain that could see that in the DA office.

  10. This is lifford banes filling in for Albert Sharon who is busy running through the woods on drugs.

    I’m very glad Ken Mello got a yellow belly and couldn’t justify his position when scrutinized. It’s always good when judges ask the important questions and make sure things are on the level. I know Albert Sharon wants to do weird things to you but Idont. I think they might be back to fire me as the substitute Albert Sharon when they sober up in 3 days.

    In other news Helena Rafferty tells me the fat guy is the mood for a parade.

  11. I am wondering if DA Morrissey has sent or received any emails or texts from AG Campbell concerning this bungled case? Has anyone checked on that via the FOI Act?

    One would think the AG would keep a close eye on those she is over seeing, since the fall out reflects on her. Not that she gives a care. 🥴

  16. What I fail to see is how you are no longer even more popular than you may be at this point. You are incredibly intelligent, and your depth of knowledge on the subject led me to believe it from a variety of perspectives. It seems that people aren’t interested in anything until it has to do with Lady Gaga. Keep up the good work.

  17. It’s my first time on your blog, and I have to admit that I’m amazed at how much research you did to produce such a fantastic post. A important portion was built with the help of someone.
