Portland Islamic Center Receives Threatening Anonymous Letter

What can we identify about the author of this anonymous letter sent to an Islamic Center in Maine?

A letter is a statement which reveals four things about the author:

1.  The Author's Background
2.  The Author's Experiences in Life
3.  The Author's Priority or priorities/motive in sending the letter
4.  The personality traits of the Autho

Let's look at the letter:


I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. It will be a great experience.  Come August life will never be the same again."

There is a signature or mark that follows it. 

We view both the "masking" of the identity of the author, and the specific wording chosen that reveals the four elements of the author's identity noted above.  


It is addressed to a single "Muslim" and not "Muslims" and it begins the statement portion with the pronoun "I" which is very important. 

Note how closely "Muslim" is to the pronoun "I"  in the letter.  

Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah" 

Psychologically, this person is "in" the statement.  

Next, note that there is no threat made.  This is very important in threat analysis:  the quality of the sentence of the threat 

Note the author gets "enjoyment" from something.  What gives him enjoyment?

"I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. "

Q.  What will the author enjoy?

A.  The author will enjoy the "sight" in "the streets", making the visible not only enjoyable, but visible for others to see; that is, public.  

This is consistent with terrorism. 

The point of terrorism is attention.  It is to strike fear into the hearts of the non believers and cause them to acquiesce.  This is a very successful tool and has completely altered the way the Western world travels as there are now billions of dollars and massive delays to what was once a state of travel that reached art like form. Children attending school under military protection, with soldiers lining streets has become the norm due to this ideology.  

Gallop poll yesterday showed more and more Americans are avoiding public gatherings due to fear of Islam.  

It is a powerful ideology that has successfully existed:

1.  1400 years
2.  Without a single charismatic leader
3.  Without reformation of any kind  
4.  In spite of Western influence including hijab (Islamic take over via immigration) where integration is very low.  
5.  In spite of technological advances
6.  In spite of financial prosperity including oil wealth, foreign investments, etc. 
7. In spite of educational advancements 
8. In spite of political pressure including women's rights movements and protests 
9. In spite of military defeats (Crusades, Gates of Vienna) 
10. In spite of static view of culture and progress 

The Koran tells the Islamists to note how non-Islamic lands are in "ruins" due to Allah's anger.  This is why monuments of non Islamic societies are targeted for destruction, lest the Koran be wrong.  

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" 

This is where in the Tripolitan War,  the US Marines began to be called "leathernecks" as the Islamic fighters attempted to decapitate them in obedience to the Koran.  

Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers,

Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. They are often targeted for their disobedience to their prophet's command and are "traitors" if they assimilate into non-Islamic (western) culture. 

 Unlike history books, including the Old Testament, these are continual marching orders and not reports of specific battles or wars.  

In some cases, Muslims claim "it is only in self defense", which is later refuted in verses of the Koran, as well as in the precedent of 1400 years of history:  wherever Islam settles, violence ensues.  

The language of terror:

1. Hyperbolic Language 

"I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. "

We find in Islamic threats the use of hyperbole and the references to blood flowing.  

This strongly suggests that the author is familiar with Islamic/Arabic culture.  

Recall the hyperbole of Saddam Hussein who repeatedly used references such as "the blood will flow in the streets."

This refers to the "sight" that is visibly seen by all (the point of terrorism).  

2.  Insult 

"vermin" is a derogatory term that uses as its base, animals.  This is common in the Koran and in Islamic supremacist language where Jews are "pigs", "descended from apes", "unclean dogs" whereas "vermin" not only uses animal life, but is a term associated with Nazi view of Jews.  The use of an animal suggests Islamic background, familiarity and an attempt to mask his own identity.  

The need to insult is noted while there is no actual threat.  

This next verse is limited to war. The theme of terror's point is the same:  

Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember." 

Unlike the Geneva Convention and POWs:

Quran (8:67) - "It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land..."

This is why many have been against women in front line combat.  

Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."

The language of threats:

Threat Assessment within Statement Analysis is consistent with studies that show:

Weak sentences do not equate to violence while strong sentences do.  

"I will kill you" is an example of a strong threat. 

"if you don't do this, I will kill you" is a conditional threat. 

"You are going to die", is, in analysis, no threat. 

"Death will come to you" is also, technically in analysis, a non threat.  The passivity is noted as the subject does not make a direct threat. 

This same technique is used in suicide notes. 


Anything can change, so should a trigger exist, that is, an event that causes a passive threat to become an active threat, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to predict. 

Humiliation is a powerful trigger that can cause one to act out his threat.  In many cases, it is the trigger of violence.  

The Orlando Islamist is an example of this.  President Obama told us, in spite of a 911 call confessing his motive, that Islam wasn't really his motive.  Main stream media joined the echo and blamed "homophobia" (the irrational fear of homosexuals), Christians and guns.  

CNN even interviewed the killer's "boyfriend" of which Statement Analysis showed "deception indicated."  We later learned that the main stream media reports were fake:

He was not homosexual;
He had no homosexual apps, secret meetings or male partner.  

We did, however, see that the FBI analyst dismissed him as a threat and said he was a victim of "Islamophobia", or the irrational fear of Islam.  This was because, the report said, he was called "towel head."

The analyst did not understand humiliation, even in name calling, from the point of Islamic supremacy.  Islamic supremacy views "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" as inherently weak, and retribution as strength.  

In this anonymous letter, there is no threat to Muslims.  The "Muslim" to whom it is addressed is not told that the author (very strongly present) is going to do anything but "enjoy" that which is visible to all.  

 It will be a great experience.

Our author has not experienced Islamic violence to date.  He recognizes this fact in this wording.  

The author knows of Islamic violence, but this knowledge is likely through media reports and through possible other sources, including online and Mosque.  

Linguistic Disposition:

                 The author does not hate Muslims. 

The author makes no direct insult in spite of the word "vermin."

Note what he will enjoy: the sight of "the blood" and not "your" blood, nor Islamic or Muslims' blood.  The author's disposition is such that he cannot bring himself to personalize it. 

Note:   "the blood of you" separates "blood" from "you", which is a form of distancing language from violence.  "I will enjoy your blood..." would have increased the personal view. 

It is not the enjoyment of one's blood, but the sight.  This is consistent with Islamic terror, and not a threat against Muslims. It is the spectacle that matters for our author.   

This is a distancing language from the personal animosity that one has of the infidel.  Those who reject Mohammad and Allah are targeted with acute animosity. 

Our author does not show animosity towards his recipient, even though the "mask" used makes a weak attempt do so. The need to sound threatening (negative) reveals the positive disposition.  

Analysis Conclusion:

Our author does not make a terrorist threat.
Our author does not hate Muslims but has a positive linguistic view of them, even as he attempts to mask otherwise. 
Our author shows language consistent with Islamic teaching. 
Our author links himself, very closely, to being "Muslim."  
Our author was likely raised in Islamic culture.  

Our author is not against Muslims, and is with a political view to defend Muslims.  English may be second language.  See handwriting analysis below.  

Our author is a younger male who is without experience and is likely an outsider within his own Muslim community.  This makes him ripe for exploitation.   

It is likely "fake hate" intended to, as the author alluded to,

be "visible" for the sake of promoting "Islamophobia" as a defense against the truth of the ideology that calls for the subjugation of all. 

  This is the basic motive but there is more about the author, personally, within the letter, and his own need for recognition within his community.  The author is likely compulsive and one who is easily exploited by Islamists.  He may have already experienced humiliation and is ripe for mosque leaders to employ him for violence.  

In identifying the author, investigators should view what events are scheduled to take place in August and why this subject needs to feel inclusion.  All overseas contacts by members here should be checked, including all recent visitations.  

If the local organization is resistant to terrorism themselves, they could be targeted, though not yet, at the time of this letter.  

"August" is important to the author, himself, but as a threat, it is in the category of vagueness; something that those who intend on harm are not interested in.  

"Life will never be the same again" is passive voice, and an affirmation that there will be "life" and not "blood" from our author.    Our author's life is without meaning.  Although he is intelligent, he is "unheard" in his Islamic community.  

Investigators should closely watch those who seek publicity from this event as our author may have a close tie with one person in particular ("Muslim") as exploitation is the public or greater motive.  

What we consider mental health issues may not be considered as such in his community.  This includes not only depression but poor impulse control, which Islamic communities often consider "strength."  

Studies have shown that suicide bombers are often educated, intelligent, and of those who have become westernized and non-religious, the respect of the community and the "blessings of allah" come through this act of "redemption"; a way to "wash away the sins of the west" from their eternal souls.  

Although our author is not an imminent threat to this group, he may be a terror threat where he becomes newly interested in being devout and obedient, especially since it would bring his family honor and in some communities, money.  The traits we find in supremacists raised in domestic violence, which once it meets increased testosterone, is a lethal combination, are often found in angry sermons of imans who are recorded unknown to them.  The same imans who push peace and tolerance publicly, are recorded privately pushing war against the West.

Although much of the West (politicians, elite) deny being at war with Islam, Islam is at war with the entire non Islamic world. 

One of the attendants at the Islamic Center likely has some contact with the author.  

Handwriting Analysis

This was submitted by an expert Steve Johnson, from Veritas, an  analyst who is both a statement and handwriting analyst:

This person’s perception of reality is skewed – leaning toward the pessimistic.  You can expect his mood and temperament to fluctuate - unpredictable.  He will likely have a quick temper and be opinionated to the extent that he wont back down, and he will say too much. 
He has some brutality traits (could be verbal or physical).  He likely does not see himself fitting in well in society.  He is intelligent, however, he probably doesn’t have many accomplishments to speak of (more than likely due to the mental issues from above).  
All these traits make this person vulnerable to anyone that will give him attention.    He lacks follow through, which is strengthened by the fact that he didn’t actually make a threat to do anything.  I would also look for someone that has substance abuse issues and something in his past that he is running from.

 Some of his HW traits:
t's that look like r’s – pessimistic, lacks follow through.

Right side t crossing – quick temper, (nervous – impatient…)

Braced d stem – stubborn

Angular h – aggressive, opinionated, temper

wide open g stems – unsatisfied / unfulfilled materialistic goals (and sex life)

Erratic baseline -  his perception of reality is skewed.  His moods and temperament will change quickly.  

In any language, the more one writes, the more his natural writing style appears. With Anonymous Author letters, most of the time I will find what is closest to their instinctual writing habits towards the end of the letter.  

In this case, the last 3 words are connected writing. They are also written neater than the other words in the letter.  I think that is the author's instinctual writing.  
Whether the author's 1st language is English or Arabic, there are two words that should not be ignored.   
Inline image 1  Inline image 2

Both these words are fragmented.  The author cannot hold it together mentally.  The last word in the letter is "again."  Notice the large space between the g and the "ain." Then again at the end of the word there is a large space until the period.  This is a mental interruption/ disconnect in his thought process. We see this same disconnect in the word experience.  The scary thing about that word is the context combined with the mental dive ("xp") and then the mental elevation as shown with the "ienc" being disconnected and raised above the baseline.   The mental instability is also demonstrated in other areas of the letter such as 2nd line, the word "and."  

Psychological Warfare

Islam as an ideology is immune to reformation.  It prescribes the death penalty to anyone who criticizes it.  This is part of the "Islamic blasphemy laws."
protection against knife attacks and decapitation attempts

It is often why commentators say that Muslims are the first victims of Islam.  If they disagree with it, they are subject to violence, terrorism, threats and death.  
This is  a powerful element of psychological warfare and it is used against both Muslim and non Muslims.  No politician wants to refuse even a small request knowing that it would lead to protests and possible violence. 
This includes psychological warfare. 
In Europe, one may have their home raided, and be arrested for "hate speech"; specifically,  "inciting racial hatred."
Islam is not a race.  Even England's own citizens can be charged with "inciting racial hatred" by quoting Winston Churchill.  This is a de facto imposition of Sharia Blasphemy laws. 

It is not irrational to fear an ideology that calls for sexual molestation of women not covered up, nor is it irrational to fear and oppose that which calls for subjugation and even death in order to reach the level of "submission" or "peace."

The phrase, "Islam is a religion of peace" is, in itself, "unnecessary" language; that is, it is only necessary to claim in the lack of peace.  It is an ideology that teaches supremacy and enforces it with violence, beginning with young children watching the physical violence against their mothers.  This is a desensitization that when coupled with religious zealotry, leads to death.  

It is the only "religion" that ascribes coercion and "Islamophobia" is a form of psychological warfare meant to use western ethics against those who oppose the ideology.  Its power was seen, in earnest, beginning in 2009 when the FBI library was purged of the Koran teachings on violence and anti-terrorist manuals were purged of all Islamic reference.  This was a major victory for Islam. 

Even as Islamists call for the public stoning of homosexuals, leftist organizations, including women's groups and "LGBT" organizations  continue to march in support of Islam, claiming that opposition to Islam is "nazism" and "fascism."

How successful is this psychological warfare?

They march in support of laws that call for their own demise. 

In Sweden, police stations have been closed and new recruits cannot be found.  They fear arresting Islamists because they will be called "racists" and "Islamohpobes."

The power of the ideology should not be underestimated as the entire Western world is under its presence and threat. 

Muslims who call for peace are called "uncle Tom" by media and are targeted for violence, themselves.  Others use "tacquia", or the Islamic teaching of deception of unbelievers, to exploit western values in the ongoing war.  

Correction:  Hizrah is the doctrine of Islamic conquest by migration.  This is currently what is happening in Sweden, Germany, France and Brussels, as "war refugee" status is taken in deception.

Great analysis as usual. If there is one thing we are assured to hear from you its the truth and very refreshing it is to. What i dont understand is where this is all going. The West keeps importing more and more "refugees" of which the vast majority are fighting age males. I read the other day that Sweden despite the 200,000 they have taken in and all the problems they have been facing internally have committed to taking in another 400,000!! This is insanity!
Surely the leaders of the West know this. I find it hard to believe they continue to allow more and more people in without knowing the dire consequences of such policies. We are all going to end up back in the stone age at this rate living in fear in the modern age when we should be reaching a point in history of science bringing a high quality of life to us all. I hope the very intelligent speakers such as Ben Shapiro and Douglas Murray can reach the ears of our leaders and influence them somehow .
I would love to hear some alternative suggestions to starting the process of halting this mass migration. Sort the problem of ISIS in Syria in conjunction with Assad and the Russians. Assad might not be an Angel but having him in power is a much more desirable situation than the current one.
Help them rebuild their own countries. If we can finish the war there is no reason to bring hundreds of thousands of people to the West and many of the ones who have come can go back. Assimilation isn't working. Im sure it won't be easy but the alternative is the quickening growth of Islam in the West leading to the point where Muslims will hold the majority globally and we will all end up living under Islamic law which in my opinion belongs well in the past.

I wonder do any politicians follow your work Peter?

It is interesting how far down the page he begins his vision in lead or ink. The lines drawn like a check mark makes me think he may have been spinning the page around.There is a large space after "I" and the other work beginning with "i" is set to the left more than other lines.

Wonder if the envelope was semi-transparent?

Perhaps another is correct about this being an incoming student. Or, perhaps the threat was meant for someone in the Mosque concerning their family abroad (you and fellow vermin).

Yeah it looks like the writer started making some kind of list or scorechart for cards maybe ( or do the letters represent the first initial of 2 different oeoples names like in a game of cards or fir some other reason?) whileholding the paper horizontal and then got mad and spun it around and wrote his angry note.
"Fellow vermin" is so odd--I think the writer feels he doesnt fit in--he does not feel part of the fellowship". One thing I did think of is that a common Christian prayer said during mass uses the word "fellowship" doesnt it? I wonder if this individual may have strayed from his faith at some point?
The title "MUSLIM" seems more like it is being used as an adjective then a noun. Like if a Christian wrote a hate letter to Christians and called it "CHRISTIAN" it would seem more an adjective than a noun.

I also think it is strange that instead of saying "Come August. Life will never be the same." He says "Come August. Life will never be the same again." This could be way off but the "again" seems to suggest that the writer has already (past tense) had something happen to him that made his life "not the same", and that is why he says "Life will never be the same AGAIN". jmo

I am actually wondering now if the writer has some type of facial injury/deformity caused by an accident or attack.
They way he says "I will enjoy the sight of" seems he could be someone who feels humiliated when people "see" him and the people may "enjoy" mocking or laughing at him if he has a facial injury or deformity. Also, the last line "Life will never be the same again"..,,I feel like something life altering has happened to the writer like an injury that either caused a deformity or a handicap of which he feels humiliated.

Off topic

A juror in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial has said that he found Andrea Constand's testimony unconvincing because she willingly went to his home when the alleged incidents occurred.

The juror said: 'She was well-coached. Let's face it: She went up to his house with a bare midriff and incense and bath salts. What the heck?'

He spoke after two more Bill Cosby jurors have spoken out saying the jury was almost evenly split in its deliberations, which refutes earlier claims the majority wanted to convict the entertainer.

The juror, who spoke with the Inquirer and Daily News on the condition of anonymity, would not disclose whether he wanted to convict Cosby. He did say, however that the seven men and five women on the panel were evenly split after the 52 hour deliberation, prompting the Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'neill, to declare a mistrial on Saturday.

It contradicts earlier reports that jurors voted 10-2 to convict Cosby on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his Philadelphia area home in 2004.

According to the anonymous juror, the jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict because the language describing the charges of three counts of aggravated indecent assault too confusing and 'too legal'.

He added that jurors had difficulty with terms like 'reckless' and severely impaired' while discussing whether Cosby drugged and molested Constand in an incident in 2004.

Some of their request to go over testimony during deliberations were based on desire to find those specific words in the evidence, he said.

He said: 'We were trying to match the testimony up with the charges. Everybody's interpretation of those words was something different.'

Although he didn't reveal his vote, the anonymous juror did voice his criticism about the 44-year-old Toronto native who claimed to never have sought a romantic relationship with Cosby.

He specifically felt that she should have gone to Cosby's home only if she was 'dressed properly and left the incense in the store' in reference to a gift she brought him before the alleged assault.

The juror found Cosby's own words to police and a deposition for a civil lawsuit filed by Constand in 2005 to be convincing. Cosby maintained his innocence,, saying that any sexual contact was consensual.

'He was extremely honest. He admitted to things,' the juror said.

He went further to say that Constand's mother was the driving force for reporting the allegations and that the jury refused to let the allegations of more than 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct influence the decision.

He said: 'This is ridiculous, unbelievable, I think more than half jumped on the bandwagon.'

A different juror had earlier told ABC News that jurors voted 10-2. The juror who spoke to the Associated Press confirmed that vote but said three people then changed their minds. He said the panel was typically more evenly split.

The juror who spoke to WPXI also said the jury found it hard to believe alleged victim Andrea Constand given it took her a year to report the allegations of sexual abuse.

'That's hard for me to believe, that I've been injured and it takes a year to report,' the juror said.

'Whatever the man did, he's already paid a price and suffered.'

The juror added that the votes were 7-5 or 5-7 for much of the deliberations.

The other juror who spoke out also questioned the long delay in bringing charges against Cosby, suggesting that 'no new evidence from 2005 to now has showed up, no stained clothing, no smoking gun, nothing.'

Constand told jurors Cosby gave her pills that made her woozy and then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay paralyzed on a couch, unable to tell him to stop. Cosby has said his encounter with Constand was consensual.

Tania Cadogan said...


The alleged victim, now 44, initially went to police about a year after she said Cosby assaulted her, but a prosecutor declared her case too weak to bring charges.

Prosecutors reopened the investigation in 2015 after the public release of a deposition that Cosby gave in 2005 and 2006 as part of accuser Andrea Constand's civil suit against him - testimony that hadn't yet been offered when another district attorney passed on the case in early 2005. Prosecutors used Cosby's deposition as evidence at the criminal trial.

Cosby is now eager to get back to work after the sex assault case ended in a mistrial. The disgraced comedian already has a tour in the works, according to his spokesperson.

Andrew Wyatt appeared on Good Day Alabama on Wednesday and announced that the 79-year-old actor plans to host a series of town halls educating teenagers, young athletes and even married men about how to avoid being charged with a sex crime.

It was then revealed by Wyatt that one of those town halls would be taking place 'some time in July' in Birmingham, Alabama.

Wyatt appeared on the show along with Camille Cosby's spokesperson and fellow Alabama native Ebonee Benson in their first televised interview since the case ended in a mistrial on Saturday.

At one point, the host of the show, Janice Rogers, said of these proposed town halls: 'Is it sort of a do as I say not as I do thing?'

The reference to Cosby's infidelities with a number of other women and admission to giving some of those women Quaaludes caused both Wyatt and Benson to burst out in laughter.

'We're going to talk to young people because this is bigger than Bill Cosby,' Wyatt said.

'This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing.'

He then added: 'And it also affects married men.'

The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office did not respond to a request for comment about Cosby's planned tour.

Benson then stepped in to explain the dangers facing young people when it comes to the subject of sex crimes.

'The laws are changing, the statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended, so this is why people need to be educated on a brush against the shoulder,' Benson said.

'Because anything at this point can be considered sexual assault and it is a good thing to be educated about the laws.'

On the topic of law, Wyatt said early in the interview that he was not surprised at all with the verdict in the case.

'(Cosby) has always said, 'I don't want people coming in deciding if I'm guilty or innocent. I don't want them to take that stance. I want them to hear the truth,' Wyatt said.

'And I knew that once they heard the truth it was either going to be a mistrial or a verdict of not guilty.'

Wyatt then added: 'She gave a different testimony to the Toronto police department and then to Montgomery County and then to the DA Castor at that time, which is why they decided not to press charges (in 2005).'

He also claimed the 52 hours that the jury tried to come to a verdict last week was the 'longest deliberation ever in the history of Montgomery County'.

As for his client, he said Cosby is doing better than ever.

'He's great, I talked to him this morning,' he said. 'He was excited to go home - and his life was at stake, his freedom was at stake - to go home and spend time with Mrs Cosby and the children and just celebrate Father's Day.'

Cosby was just as happy as he walked out of the courthouse with Wyatt on Saturday, who raised a single fist in the air and declared that the comedian's 'power' was back.

Tania Cadogan said...


He also quoted Huey P. Newton, the co-founder of the Black Panthers, by stating: 'Power is the ability to define phenomena, and make it act in a desired manner.'

Then, to close it out, he attacked those who represented the women accusing Cosby.

'The jurors, they used their power to speak, and Mr Cosby's power is back,' Wyatt said.

'So the legacy didn't go anywhere, it has been restored. And for all those attorneys who conspired like Gloria Allred, tell them to go back to law school and take another class.'

Camille Cosby, the comedian's seldom-heard-from wife, also jumped into the fray with a statement of her own, which was read outside the courthouse by Benson and later posted on her husband's Twitter account.

In it , she called District Attorney Steele 'heinously and exploitatively ambitious,' Judge O'Neill 'overtly arrogant and collaborating with the district attorney,' the media as 'blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life.'

She did not attack the accusers, but did label their legal counsel as 'totally unethical.'

Benson spoke about Camille's statement in her interview on Wednesday.

'It was a very direct statement. It was a very truthful and pure statement,' said Benson. 'I think the feedback only came from those who did not come and listen for the evidence for themselves.'

Benson also said in the interview that Cosby's relationship with Constand, which she states was rape and he describes as a mutual affection, helped him in the case even though it revealed he had cheated on his wife.

'I think [the jury] definitely thought about it, because this case, this trial happened years before we made it into a courtroom,' said Benson.

'This trial sort of played out in the eyes of the media, so public opinion was definitely a factor.'

She went on to say: 'I think seeing Mrs Cosby in the courtroom the day that she did come, on closing arguments, and also hearing that statement from her afterwards, I think that resonated with the jury.

'It took away the celebrity aspect and made them more like regular people.'

Benson then closed out by explaining: 'Everyone has issues in a marriage, everyone has problems in a marriage.'

It is unclear how long Benson has been working with Cosby, with the actor posting a rare photo of himself and the young woman on Twitter back in May after an artist she represented made a portrait for the 'Cosby Show' creator.

Wyatt meanwhile has been by Cosby's side for the past few years.

Cosby wrote about the appearance of Benson and Wyatt on Twitter Wedhnesday afternoon, stating: 'Thank You #GoodDayAlabama #WBRC #FOX6 and the most watched news anchor #JaniceRogers @JANICEROGERS6.'

He followed that up with: '...for having my publicists #AndrewWyatt and #EboneeBenson on your show.'

I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. It will be a great experience. Come August life will never be the same again."

Regarding the letter that starts with the word muslim.

He doesn't allocate it to anyone as in "You Muslims" or To muslims"
To me it was as if he was announcing who and what he was.

I had a vision of a group of men meeting each other for the first time, stranger from different cillages, countries, or one type of civilization to another,perhaps not as advanced.

I could see him point to himself and announce muslim, proud of his 'religion' (ideology) and perhaps expecting a challenge.
In the movies the next man would point to himself and say wwwho he was or what he was such as belief, tribe, title such as village elder.

The letter started with an announcement, he told us he was muslim.

I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets.
He doesn't tell us he will do something to cause the blood to run into the street.
He also doesn't tell us whose blood will be running.
I would be wondering what sect he is from , given that all the sects hates every other sect, sunni hating shia and shia hating sunni to the extent they happily blow each other upincluding women and children going about their daily business.
Since he doesn't say he will be doing the bloodletting,is he perhaps hinting that something will happen and that he will be the passive bystander?
Is he perhaps implying he is part of a cell, where it is someone else or multiple persons who will cause the blood to run in the street.

I noted he does not use the word infidel, which i would expect, or perhaps other words used by muslims to insult non muslims.
This would perhaps imply it is aimed at persons who are not infidels.
He uses the word wormin, animal based insults are a common theme in the islamic language, especially as certain animal are considered unclean.
Vermin is associated with infestation.
He does not say either how the blood will be spilled or why.
This makes me wonder if perhaps he feels insulted and wants his revenge.
Possibly a student, a loner who doesn't fit in.
Maybe he has become more religious whereas others in the school are more lax about it, especially given it is ramadan.
Could this be a school shooting?
Maybe something in a religious institution, perhaps where he feels things aren't being done right, being done properly according to his views, perhaps even that of a different sect.

It will be a great experience.
In what way?
What will it satisfy in him?
Just seeing the blood?
Payback for some perceived slight?
Will it be a physical/emotional or religious experience that will be "great" (satisfied)
What will happen after the blood has run in the street?
He doesn't tell us.
Does he expect to be around after the blood has run in the street?
Could he perhaps be a lone wolf?

Come August life will never be the same again.
For whom?
The writer,the "you and your fellow vermin" or both?
How will life have changed for both the writer and "you and your fellow vermin"

He talks a lot about blood and life changing but he doesn't tell us thst it is he who will make it happen.
It is all passive not active.
He only takes ownership of enjoying the "sight of blood running into the streets"
the rest of the time he is simply a passive muslim.

He comes across as having an ego, he feels disrespected.
He comes across as young and reasonably well educated as he spells correctly usiing proper english rather than text speak/ebonics or street slang.
I wonder if english is perhaps a second language as it seems slightly stilted.

Looking at how the letter appears, it seems to be slightly more orientated towards the right hand side, with a large indent on the left hand side.
Is this because he normally writes right to left or feels more comfortable writing that way?

The squggle underneath the letter could be a signature.
Looking at the shapping of the "letters" it looks arabic, and signed from right to left, especially the bottom letter which looks like a five (5) on its front.

When does school/college start after the summer break?

Some of his HW traits:
t's that look like r’s – pessimistic, lacks follow through.

Right side t crossing – quick temper, (nervous – impatient…)

Braced d stem – stubborn

Angular h – aggressive, opinionated, temper

wide open g stems – unsatisfied / unfulfilled materialistic goals (and sex life)

Erratic baseline - his perception of reality is skewed. His moods and temperament will change quickly.

This is nothing more than snake oil. Hand writing analysis (graphology) has no place in any analysis. It is tantamount to reading horoscopes, palm reading and Psychics, It is a vague generalisation akin to the "Barnum Effect"

On the other hand, "Forensic" handwriting analysis does have a place. "Forensic handwriting analysis" studies how a subject crosses their t's to the left to the right, are there tail hooks on the bottom of of the lower case G's etc. It is used when someone is trying to forge a letter or disguise their hand writing, yet their hand writing style gives them away. See the Ramsey "Ransom Note".

I disagree with part of the article. And surprise it has any place in this blog entry.

In his book The Write Stuff, Dr. Barry Beyerstein summarized the work of Dr. Geoffrey Dean, who performed probably the most extensive literature survey of graphology ever done. Dean did a meta-analysis on some 200 studies:

Dean showed that graphologists have failed unequivocally to demonstrate the validity or reliability of their art for predicting work performance, aptitudes, or personality. Graphology thus fails according to the standards a genuine psychological test must pass before it can ethically be released for use on an unsuspecting public.

Dean found that no particular school of graphology fared better than any other... In fact, no graphologist of any stripe was able to show reliably better performance than untrained amateurs making guesses from the same materials. In the vast majority of studies, neither group exceeded chance expectancy.

Off topic

The mother of two children who died after being left in a hot car in May was arrested Friday afternoon.

Parker County Sheriff's investigators arrested Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, in connection with the death of her two children, a 16-month-old boy and a 2-year-old girl.

Police say she admitted she left her kids in the car to “teach them a lesson.”

Police were called to her home near Lake Weatherford on May 26 where Randolph told police she found her two kids unresponsive after being locked inside a vehicle. The incident was reported shortly after 4 p.m. when it was about 96 degrees.

Randolph initially said she was inside her home folding laundry and watching TV while her kids played in an enclosed back porch that was visible from the living room. She said about 20 to 30 minutes had passed when she realized her kids were “gone."

Randolph told police she sent more than half an hour looking for her kids and later found them locked inside her car. She said the kids got in the car on their own and locked themselves in. Both kids were pronounced dead shortly after 4:30 p.m. She told police her kids were not in the car for more than an hour.

Throughout multiple interviews, police say Randolph changed her story several times about what lead to the death of her children.

The story broke Sunday 28 May 2017 where after searching the home, the mother says she eventually found the two children locked inside her car, with one of them holding her mobile phone and car keys.

At the time i wondered why they would take her keys and cell phone.
Now we sadly know why.

Two toddlers were found dead in a locked vehicle on Friday in Parker County, Texas.

Temperatures had hit 96F (35C) when the mother of the children, a two-year-old girl and a 16-month-old boy, says she found them locked inside her car, according to a news release from the local sheriff’s office.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s website identifies the two children as Juliet and Cavanaugh Ramirez – and says the cause of their deaths is still pending.

Parker County Sheriff’s Captain Mark Arnett told CNN the mother of the two children said they had been playing in a back room of their family home when they disappeared.

After searching the home, the mother says she eventually found the two children locked inside her car, with one of them holding her mobile phone and car keys.

The mother said she broke a window to reach her children, but both were unresponsive by the time she got to them.

“The question is, can a two-year-old open a car door and a two-year-old and a one-year-old climb inside and lock it?” Captain Arnett said.

“In the course of the investigation, if charges are warranted, I’m sure the district attorney’s office will bring them,” he added. So far, no charges have been laid.

“This case is in the early stages of the investigation,” Sheriff Larry Fowler said in the news release.

“Any comment regarding this case at this time would be an assumption until all of the facts are gathered.”

John are you talking about a "Felon's Hook" in handwriting? That can be found on any letter that goes below the baseline. That does have statistical significance for indicating psychopathy.
Handwriting analysis is valid.
Common sense can even yield some insight. Like why does the writer put "and" below the baseline? It could even be a problem with his eye(s).
I am surprised people feel the mark at the bottom is a signature.
It clearly looks like 2 columns with what is most likely the first letter of 2 individuals names at the tops of the columns.

In my opinion, the writer is someone who feels humiliated by a Muslim. "Sight" is important to the writer & I feel his humiliation relates to something visual, something that can be "seen"...perhaps could he even have been punished publically ie. flogging, whipping over in a different country?
Also, regarding the mark at bottom, if looked at from one angle, it looks like a sword, with the letters "M" and "S" being at the "handle" of the sword,

I also feel that the analysis (hand writing) is contaminated. Given the provocative nature of the note it is easy to jump to a conclusion as he/she has. Would he/she (analyst) come to the same conclusions if he was to read an essay/shopping list/dissertation etc, from the same author that contained no threats or possible threats, but just "plain" language?

Charles Crisp said...

I was, like John McGowan, surprised to see handwriting analysis in this blog entry. I also agree that while forensic analysis, used to discover a writer's identity, can be very valuable, all the stuff about style being indicative of aggression, or apathy, or any future behavior, is simply nonsense. For whatever it is worth, my opinion is that handwriting analysis should not be mixed with Statement Analysis.

Did Otto Warmbier's roommate remove the poster?

"I’ve got nothing from my experiences with him that would suggest he would do something like that,” he said. “At no stage did I ever think he was anything but a very, very polite kid.”

The tour group waited in the square for several hours before being allowed to return to their hotel. Gratton eventually made it back in the early hours after taking a number of taxis and the American says he saw him walk back in.
The British man's brief disappearance occurred around the same time Otto supposedly stole the propaganda poster from the hotel where they were staying.

either of you gentlemen care to offer some evidence to affirm your assertions?

As to "total nonsense"...

This is why we have formal training for analysts. When they complete the profiling within Statement Analysis, they are given opportunity to examine an expert in HWA (who, in this case, is an expert Statement Analyst as well() work for comparison.

it does not take long for them to see the consistency in their own advanced profiling work and the confirmation in HWA. In some cases, they are even privileged to see the results of a psych eval.

Hi, Peter

If memory serves me correct i commented on Mark McClish book (in one of your blogs) "Don't be deceived" in it he dedicates a chapter to HWA, and i was disappointed that he had added this to an already excellent book. I disagreed with it, and you concurred.

Here is some research. I do however, feel that we are going to agree to disagree on this subject.

Write and Wrong: Personality and Handwriting
Is Graphology bunk? What do the many studies in this area show?

John, Psychology Today is not a reputable source. That's like the "People Magazine" of Psychiatry.
Also, open loops for example in letters a, o, p etc indicate a DECEPTIVE PERSONALITY.
Even scarier is when people actually form small of large pictures within their signature. I have seen examples online and also in my personal is truly frightening.

I know it's not the best. If however you read the article the studies on HWA are well documented and well sourced, too.

This failure of graphology is clearly stated in the following document:

British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) Position Paper: The use of graphology as a tool for employee hiring and evaluation, 1988
"Many other studies report the same finding: when there is content information (contamination) in the handwriting samples, non-graphologists do as well or better than the graphologists in predicting traits.

On the other hand, in properly controlled, blind studies, where the handwriting samples contain no content that could provide non-graphological information upon which to base a prediction (e.g., a piece copied from a magazineM), graphologists do no better than chance at predicting the personality traits (Rafaeli & Klimosky [1983], Ben-Shakhar [1986], Karnes [1988], Jansen [1973])."

Note the phrase "graphologists do no better than chance". In layman's terms this means they're guessing.

I'm open minded to learn new things, suffice to say until then, i believe it is a Pseudo science and i will always put my faith in SA.

What say you said...

REIGN deer games

Merkel in the RT news, 100 days before Election
is this game a punch in the shoulder to all Native offended Germans
she's not going anywhere, so either pack up or shut up?

As Chancellor of Germany, Describe Germany by using the Alphabet

What is M for? M for mensch , mensh n. menschy adj. menschiness n.
related to Mensch "person, human being": a person of integrity and honor

WHY No, M when SHE is thinking of the late great country of Germany, under her rule,
what makes Germany great = MUSLIMS
as RT shows the M word over the flag of Germany, how brazen. RT interviews people
on the street, what say you of Germany, her list, propaganda 101 is no one
is complaining, as the one man says of newly immense population of Muslims,
"AS long as they Accept US"

He may want to rethink that.

hey peter I have been here for a lot of years and have doubts about how accurate hand writing analysis is too but even though this your record has been so good that you deserve more respect than those who insulted you above. I first got involved here in the hailey dun case and you took a lot of heat for it but you said you staked your career on it since then I know you would not have included the hand writing analysis if you didn't think accurate. are the critics even trained? I was surprised at the insults. passive and aggressive much? I do have lots of questions about it and if you have changed or whatever but they will not be in the form of insults. thanks, man, even though we did not get justice for hailey the truth still came out.

Hi! I've been a loyal follower for a few yrs now, and have read every analysis, but I rarely comment. This is off topic, but a case I would love to hear your analysis on, after reading this guy's interview I was screaming at my tablet bc of the warning bells going off inside inside of my head. The case is about 19 yr old, Bridget Shiel, who was gunned down naked in Atlanta, in a park, may 2016. Her boyfriend is Kevin Kinney. I'm trying to figure out how to upload the link on here, and I won't give up until I figure it out, Lol.. but I had to mention it to you Peter. I've followed your blog pretty much since it started, and wanted to say thank you so much, you have taught me so much on here, I use it all the time, in many situations. Anyways, I'm gonna try to upload the link, I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on it. It's extremely transparent to me. Have a great day!!! :)

NOL said...

Ok.. I'll just write the address if that's ok,
I hope this works!! I'm sorry I couldn't copy and paste. Thanks for your time and the education.
