Corporal Mike Roberts TPD

Convicted Tampa cop killer found incompetent for the 13th time

TAMPA — Not even a judge's order forcing psychotropic medications could restore convicted cop killer Carlos Bello to competency.
Bello, 57, refused to eat after Circuit Judge Ronald Ficarrotta made his ruling in April, said prosecutor Darrell Dirks. Noticing the fluctuation in his vital signs, jail officials delayed the administration of the medications to ensure his health, Dirks said.
The convict appeared in court this week in a wheel chair, unable to recognize his family members in the audience. Two doctors deemed him incompetent and on Thursday, Ficarrotta agreed.
For the 13th time since his 1987 conviction, Bello will return to a state hospital instead of being sentenced. "He has manipulated the system since 1981," Dirks said. "He continues to manipulate the system."
On July 24, 1981, the Cuban refugee who had spent the previous decade in and out of Cuban mental hospitals shot two Tampa police detectives during a drug bust. He injured Robert Ulriksen. He killed Gerald A. Rauft.
Once in custody, Bello tried to commit suicide. He became catatonic. Doctors diagnosed him with paranoid schizophrenia and medicated him at a hospital, only to find he would stop taking his medications in jail and deteriorate — a pattern he continues to repeat.
Six years after his arrest, a jury convicted him of murdering one detective and attempting to murder another. A judge sentenced him to die in the electric chair.
But in 1989, the Florida Supreme Court threw out the sentence, partly because Bello was made to wear leg shackles in court, which could have prejudiced the jury. The court ordered that Bello be resentenced.
More than 20 years later, that's where this case remains.
Dirks says the biggest problem lies in the lag time between Bello's stints at the hospital and his sentencing hearings. He was off his meds for at least a month before Ficarrotta ruled. Dirks says he will get a report about Bello in six months and once it's time for another hearing, will try to coordinate a quicker, more seamless transition.

It doesn't matter whether the public will accept it or not. This is exactly the trial you will see before you with Delgado the ganger. Remember my words. Why do you think they're keeping it so quiet and Pomponion wife of a cop? Cops took out Mike Roberts. With the help of the gang they protect the crack houses for. END OF STORY.

Blanks and Charges

Okay, tell me if this sounds mercenary. I'm leaving out names and identities for now, and even some words to protect those who frankly don't deserve protection but having never been a RAT (like some) I just don't feel good about spilling people's filthy sides of their lives onto the WWW...

However -- (you knew this was coming, right??) -- I'm willing to disclose same for a fee. In fact, I'm going to disclose some of this in a book which will definitely be for sale very soon but if you'd like to know if your name or some similar aspect that identifies your smarmy and illegal acts towards me and my family have been mentioned I'd be happy to negotiate a fee with you. For the record, save your pennies if I've known you longer than thirty years. Out of respect for you and your family I'll leave your names out. Out of respect for you and your family I have remained silent. Apparently this same respect was not inbred in you. That's a pity but you and yours are safe with me. The ones who took it upon themselves to do your bidding against an innocent family are wide open just like they've left MY family wide open. Herewith I refer to my extended family and network many of whom are currently suffering at your hands. Be on notice.

A Nation in DISTRESS

A Nation in DISTRESS


In my living room watching;
but I am not laughing ....

..... risk something, take back what's yours
say something that you know they might attack you for
cause I'm sick of being treated like I have before ....
Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day

In their living room laughing like,

"what did he say?"

Fight the Good Fight

" .... courage is humankind's cardinal virtue, because ''it makes all other virtues possible."
Reverend William Sloane Coffin

......" And I dare you to ask for a lot, I dare you to hold fast to your ideals and to expound them as publicly and as fearlessly as Martin Luther King and Bill Coffin and Betty Friedan and those dozens of grandmothers arrested a few weeks ago for protesting the war in Iraq."

About Me

I was born a citizen of the world and have remained such but along with that: I'm a long time Tampa resident. Mixed bag at that as I've seen life here from nearly all angles and while somewhere in there I became slightly indoctrinated, I'm not too proud of the way people have taken over this city and run it with an iron fist for all but some. This city is working hard on creating just two classes. Thems and them dont's and they are working hard to shove some families down into the gutter for reasons known only to them. Some might be as petty as jealousy, some might be politically motivated, some might just be stupid and all are wrong. I want to believe we can get better but that would entail some stuff that I have no control over. I only can control myself and my reactions to what occurs.
