Paxton torture victim speaks in court
Another update: This article describes some of the victim's injuries that were obviously caused by assaults and also claims court records state the victim was an intravenous drug user.
Now Renee is threatening to post my home address again as well as my daughter’s name on the Internet. That woman is inherently evil.
The other thing I have to say is about the two earth shattering new developments in the Paxton Torture trial. In today's Vancouver Province we read that the torture victim finally took the stand and answered the question we've been dying to have an answer to for so long. Why on earth did he stay in a relationship where he was literally getting tortured when he had opportunities to leave.
That has been the cutting question that has lead to so much speculation about the motive that Internet forums bursting with opinions are now quiet due to a court publication ban on the victims name. Yet we all know who it is. We all know the mother who hadn't seem that son in over ten years hired a professional media consultant to help her fund raise for the victim's medical fees and to help her family cope. The victim's biological father and the victim's biological daughter didn't get a dime.
We all know that the victim had testified in a Hells angels murder trail many years ago. We all know that his mother and brother lied about the circumstances surrounding that trial. He didn't just live in the same neighbourhood as where a gang related shooting took place. He and his brother were friends with the shooter. The shooter stayed with them for a few days in their home after he shot the Hells angels associate because he didn't want to pay the drug debt he owned him.
I have not named any names. There is a publication ban on the name of the victim. Yet the facts surrounding this case are part of the public domain and are protected by the inherit right to free speech. Given the victim's association with the shooter, it was my theory that the Hells Angels wanted to punish the shooter by torturing one of his friends. They had already shot the guy's brother in retaliation. Yet Sean Wolfe and Dale Donovan really liked the young drug dealer that looked like he was 12 years old. So much so Dale (Deli) had a tattoo of the we lad as a memorial. So the police claimed in court. When the target was shot the people that called 911 thought a 12 year old kid had been hit.
That was my theory. Others thought crystal meth was involved. They thought the cuts, the scabs, the weight loss all looked like a Crystal meth addiction. Others though he stayed in that horrifically abusive relationship because they were gay and he had the battered wife syndrome. Personally I thought that one was absurd. Yet Paxton has also been charged with sexual assault as well as aggravated assault and unlawful confinement.
So today the victim takes the stand and finally tells us what we have all been dying to know. Why did he stay in that horrifically abusive relationship when he had opportunities to leave. His biological mother who hadn't seen him in over ten years blamed the mother of his daughter for the abuse when she was the one that called the police and reported him missing and she asked him to leave but he said no. Others claim he stayed because Paxton threatened to kill his daughter. But no. Today we hear what the victim clams the reason was that he refused to leave.
Crown prosecutor Joe Mercier asked why he didn't leave. "I could have, but I would have thought of myself as a sissy for giving up like that." Despite the beating, the two were soon sharing a house. "We were getting along fine, only because I was doing whatever he said." "Why did you do that?" asked Mercier.
"I didn't want to get beat. He was getting more violent every single day. Every day there was an incident." Paxton smirked and shook his head as he listened to the testimony. The man went on to describe being punched, choked unconscious "about 1,000 times," and being hit variously with a cane, a dog leash and an extension cord. "I looked liked a guy who just got beat up. Always."
Although he said Paxton would beat him daily, Paxton didn't give reasons for the beatings. "My survival instinct kicked in. I still hung out with Dustin, even though I was getting beaten," the man said. "It was literally on a daily basis. He'd either hit me with a cane or a leash, constantly threw me around."
He said anything would set Paxton off, including taking leftovers for lunch or buying the wrong brand of bread. "He totally . . . beat the s--t out of me."
I'm sorry son but that doesn't cut it. It doesn't pass the test of believability. He had opportunities to leave but didn't. Instead he chose to endure horrific abuse and torture because he thought he's be a Sissy if he left. That simply doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Not even for a nice guy with brain injuries who is coached by a fruitcake.
They didn't ask him about the crystal meth Paxton's former victim and former girlfriend testified they all did together. They didn't ask if he recognized a man by the name of Tiny Mac. One of Sean Wolfe and Dale Donavan's friends who lived in the area at the time. So the victim has spoken and we still don't have any answers. It doesn't look like we'll get any either in this life.
Oh yeah, the other bombshell. Dustin Paxton's alleged torture victim told a Calgary courtroom Tuesday he performed sex acts on Paxton because he would have done anything to get the beatings to stop. Anything but leave when he had opportunities to do so. "Personally I thought it was disgusting, but I was in survival mode. I would do anything to not get beaten," he said.
Ah, there it is finally. He was asked about the drugs in cross examination. When the cross-examination started, defence lawyer Jim Lutz asked the man about drug use in the Centre Street house he shared with Paxton. The man said he smoked marijuana, but testified Paxton indulged in crystal meth. The man added that he quit meth at age 25.
OK so now the victim admits he did crystal meth but claims he quit when he was 25. That would contradict the testimony of Paxton's former girlfriend in the other trial. She said they all did crystal meth together. So the victim admits he did crystal meth in the past but quit when he was 25. So when their friend who shot the Hells angels drug dealer from the Zig Zag crew stayed in their home, did he and his brother do crystal meth then? Who did they buy it from?
Oh and here's another new development: Lutz reads from police transcript, in it AV says "He [Paxton] delivered me to people to get beat all the time." by KatyAnderson via twitter 11/2/2011 8:40:14 PM 1:40 PM That was the key suspicion. That Paxton wasn't the only person who beat him. That would imply others were involved. That would explain why leaving would be problematic.
One reader reminded me about the mysterious man who showed up at the hospital. I forgot to mention that and I do think it is very significant. We were told a large tattooed man showed up at the hospital in Regina after Paxton's victim was dropped off. We were told he acquired personal contact information for his family and the hospital made a public apology to the family for the security breach.
This is significant when we read how the defense pointed out the victim claimed in a previous police report Paxton would drive him places to be beaten by other people. We don't know who the mystery man is. We do know that Tiny Mac is a large tattooed man who was living in Calgary and doling business in Regina at the time. We know he and Sean Wolf were accused of threatening a young kid with a gun and beating him with a hammer but the kid refused to testify against them.
