File under “People with waaaay too much time on their hands.” But I guess it’s a lot more fun for these people to chase after Bush than it is to watch the Obama-culpo Cliff Diver currently occupying the White House.
Ask Bob Alexander how often he’s heard the word “quixotic” recently. The approximate answer: all the time. Of all the people who read Charles Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder,” this 57-year-old Seattle coffee merchant is the only one jolted to act on it in a substantial way. The SuperBeans proprietor has become a super-activist.
With the help of a handful of volunteers and donations, Alexander has sent 2,200 copies of Bugliosi’s hardcover to prosecutors around the country. Now he and his volunteers are following up with each one of them by phone and e-mail, as well as gathering signatures for petitions urging the prosecutors to indict the former president…
…With 10 volunteers, some pizza and no doubt plenty of his coffee, Alexander packed the books with a cover letter from Bugliosi, and sent them off Jan. 31. Now they’re following up. “He really took the bull by the horns,” Bugliosi said. “Bob’s the only one that really took it to the next level.”
Question of resources
No takers so far, though, particularly in King County. Ian Goodhew, deputy chief of staff in the King County Prosecutor’s Office, said he’s answered about 500 e-mails from people who want charges filed against Bush.
“Mr. Bugliosi has some legal theories that he suggests, but none of which have any legal merit,” he said.
Goodhew explained, “The statutes of Washington state only give us jurisdiction for crimes that occur in Washington state. We can’t prosecute someone for a murder that occurs in California under Washington state law, so how can we prosecute for someone that was killed in Iraq?”
