Paul Fromm Goes to Bat For.... Michelle Erstikaitis???: Part VI

It looks as if the strange saga that is Paulie's bizarre infatuation with Michelle Erstikaitis may soon be drawing to a close, at least the part of it that involved Paulie insisting that she is a, " political prisoner" when she wrote a letter to Timothy McVeigh more than a decade ago:


Paulie continues to minimize the record of a clearly disturbed young woman who is in desperate need of long-term psychiatric help. The list of her crimes include harassment of the mother of one of the children raped and murdered by Paul Bernardo. Numerous cases of assault. Arson. Hell, while she was in custody she assaulted a prison guard.

But of course Paulie has cracked the case. It wasn't because she is a habitual offender that Erstikaitis ended up in jail. No, it's that letter she wrote McVeigh. That's got to be it.

Fun fact is that Erstikaitis actually wanted to be declared a dangerous offender. While you wouldn't know it from Paulie's account, it looks like she got her wish:

Female Paul Bernardo ‘fan’ named dangerous offender

She once professed admiration for killer Paul Bernardo — and now Michelle Erstikaitis has readily agreed to be named a dangerous offender herself. 

Ontario Superior Court Justice Todd Archibald named Erstikaitis, 31, a dangerous offender Thursday after protracted sentencing hearings that included a psychiatric report diagnosing her with conduct and personality disorders.

But under new provisions in the Criminal Code, Erstikaitis need not be imprisoned indefinitely, as was once the rule for dangerous offenders.

Instead, she will be out of jail in seven days, after Archibald credited her at a rate of two-for-one for the two years, 2 ½ months she has spent in pretrial custody since being arrested for stabbing her boyfriend in 2009.

Once released, she will be under a 10-year, long-term supervision order and will be closely monitored by the parole board. 

If she breaches terms of the order, she could be jailed indefinitely. 

“I think it is a good result all around,” said prosecutor David Boulet.

In June 1999, Erstikaitis was sentenced to two years’ probation after she was convicted of threatening to kill Debbie Mahaffy, the mother of Leslie Mahaffy, 14, one of three girls murdered by Bernardo and Karla Homolka.

At the time, Erstikaitis expressed admiration for Bernardo — who has also consented to the dangerous offender label — and said she believed him innocent. 

In Thursday’s sentencing, Erstikaitis pleaded guilty to two sets of charges, including assault with a weapon, weapons dangerous, threatening bodily harm, assaulting a peace officer and breaching a previous long-term supervision order. 

The first set of charges stemmed from an incident in January 2009 when Erstikaitis threw a glass plate and hard drive at her boyfriend, kicked him and then stabbed him with a pair of scissors in their Scarborough apartment.

His injuries were not grave, but at the time she was serving the last months of a six-year sentence as a long-term offender — on top of two years in prison — after pleading guilty to arson in an October 1999 fire at a Hamilton apartment building.

In the second set of charges for which she was sentenced Thursday, is the assault of a female uniformed court officer in December 2009. While in court answering to the charges of assaulting her boyfriend, she started yelling at a judge. Natasha Minassian, the court officer, moved to intervene. 
 
So Erstikaitis threw a cup of water at Minassian and threatened her, saying, “You don’t know who I am. They are trying to get a dangerous offender application on me.” 

Then she spat at the officer, according to agreed facts.

Later in the holding cells she “acted out violently to knee” the court officer in the groin area. 

In the lengthy sentencing process that culminated Thursday, Erstikaitis represented herself, although the court hired lawyer Peter Boushy to assist in the process. 

Erstikaitis has fired a previous lawyer, boasting of her intelligence. 

“I know just as much as they do,” she has told the judge. 

“I have a bit more intelligence and education than the average criminal. I have read Martin’s Criminal Code twice,” she said.

Female dangerous offenders are relatively rare compared to men, but some have been so designated in the past, including the first, Marlene Moore, who committed suicide in 1988.

Wait a moment. Paulie described the incident with her boyfriend that led to her incarceration as a, "domestic he-shoved she-shoved"event in which, "no one got hurt." Really? Because, we have to tell you, being stabbed, even if only you are a little bit stabbed, really hurts.

The first set of charges stemmed from an incident in January 2009 when Erstikaitis threw a glass plate and hard drive at her boyfriend, kicked him and then stabbed him with a pair of scissors in their Scarborough apartment.

His injuries were not grave, but at the time she was serving the last months of a six-year sentence as a long-term offender — on top of two years in prison — after pleading guilty to arson in an October 1999 fire at a Hamilton apartment building.

Ah, but Ms. Erstikaitis didn't help her case much while she was in jail either.

In the second set of charges for which she was sentenced Thursday, is the assault of a female uniformed court officer in December 2009. While in court answering to the charges of assaulting her boyfriend, she started yelling at a judge. Natasha Minassian, the court officer, moved to intervene.

Then she spat at the officer, according to agreed facts.

Later in the holding cells she “acted out violently to knee” the court officer in the groin area.

But yet, it was that letter to McVeigh that was the lynch pin, right Paulie.

Now, we know that the boneheads read our blog perhaps even more diligently than do the anti-racists, so we have to ask:

Why do you people continue to send Paulie money? Or let him speak for you? Don't you find all this just a little bit embarrassing? More to the point, don't you find it a little insulting to your intelligence that...

Wait, intelligence might not be the right word. "Intelligence" has four syllables.

Hmmm, we'll dumb it down a bit.

Don't you find it a little insulting to the thinky part of the brain that Paulie is telling you who is and is not a, "White Nationalist" because he thinks/knows you are so dense you'll likely believe whatever he tells you?

Hey, it's your movement. You want Paulie as your public face in Canada, that's your business.

Of course there are those who have come out to suggest that just maybe Michelle Erstikaitis isn't the poster child for the "WN" movement that Paulie has made her out to be (though she does have the propensity towards violence down pat). Just as people were perplexed by Paulie's defence of this woman when he first became her advocate, there are those who are arguing that she might simply be a damaged human:


Even our old whipping boy John Marleau is able to get a few of the synapses firing on this one, though he does manage to screw up anyways:


Sigh.... no, Paulie isn't arguing that Erstikaitis was the one who put your hero up to the Oklahoma City bombing. He's suggesting that the letter she sent McVeigh after his conviction while he was on death row is the reason she found herself in jail a decade later. This really wasn't that hard to figure out, Johnny. It's no wonder Paulie thinks you people are sheep.

Actually, given his slam of his former friends in the Aryan Guard/Blood & Honour/Combat 18/ATB/C3P0/Marmaduke/2LiveCrew/Moffats, we thought we would post Marleau's claim of McKee being a POW:


Sure, it's only peripherally related, but we thought the contrast was sort of funny.

So, Michelle Erstikaitis got her wish and she's been declared a dangerous offender. Paulie got his wish and she will soon be out of jail. So, what's next? We mean, does Erstikaitis have anywhere to stay once she is released?


Gee, does this mean that Paulie is going to continue to work to try and rehabilitate this woman? Perhaps take her into his home?

Please! No, we imagine that on her release she will be forgotten by Paulie, as she will have served her purpose for him. He could then go back to being a dilettante White Nationalist intellectual drinking red wine while his followers continue to live in ignorance and, quite often, poverty:


Here's looking at you, kids.

APRIL 11 UPDATE: Paulie provides an update and includes slightly less scary new photos of Michelle"


Still, the Netizens of Stormfront remain unconvinced of Ms. Erstikaitis' bonafides:


Paulie has a new response. Not only did she write a letter to McVeigh more than a decade ago, she also is a member of an exclusive club:


So was this enough to convince the other Stormfront posters to support her?


No. Not really.

So this chick admired Paul Bernardo?? You know, I was talking to some guys who go to my school last night and they were saying that the reason they despise rapists is because it's an insult to them as men. As well as many other reasons.

The media loves to drag racists through the dirt. Since no mention of her supposed political inclinations has been made other than by Paul and perhaps herself upon her realization of a spotlight opportunity, I speculate that White Nationalism has nothing to do with her imprisonment since no mention of this had been made by anybody else and her history seems to lack any evidence of practices involving nationalism of any kind.
Political opposition cannot resist the opportunity to criticize and crucify racists publically. Many people have surely addressed this idea with Paul. We know enough about her case to understand exactly why she's been called a dangerous offender.
Whatever happens to her, I wish her the best. Paul and Michelle need to stop lying to themselves. She'll not get to any positive position with her perpetual victim mentality and this willful exploitation of herself, and Paul's eager monopoly of this issue is only bound to harm her. His credibility is further damaged by this. There comes a point in time when, no matter what has happened to any of us, we must assume responsibility for our choices and circumstances, no matter how we may have been inspired to act by whatever events that haunt us from the past.

I think "Paul Fromm Goes Bat Shit For.... Michelle Erstikaitis???: Part VI" would be a more fitting title.

Is she even aware of her fan club (which consists only of Paul, but still)?
