6:30 a.m. I woke up at my girlfriend’s apartment. I get myself ready. I am driving to Dedham for Aiden aka Turtleboy’s hearing in court. Turtleboys case is closely interwoven with the corruption case of Karen Read.
7:30 a.m. I drove to Dedham to the courthouse. There’s a bunch of Karen Reed supporters out front and we all greet each other.
9:00 a.m. we all funnel into a packed courtroom and listen as the judge hears many different cases.
Around 9:40 a.m. Aiden is brought into the courtroom. There is a reporter by the name of Grant Smith Ellis who is the son of Wendy Murphy who is acting as some type of reporter. Both Grant and Wendy have been spreading misinformation about the Karen Read’s and Turtleboy’s case. Grant is especially known for spreading lies, and hyperbole on Twitter about Aiden’s case and Karen Read’s case. Aiden blows Grant a kiss when he enters the glass box where he has to view the proceedings. There are no new developments in Aiden’s case, it just is a continuation.
10:00 a.m. Everybody there for Aiden files out of the courtroom, and moves down to where the prison van is waiting to transfer Aiden back to Norfolk county jail. When the guards bring Aiden out of the court and put him in the van the crowd goes wild. Aiden is happy with all the support, you can see it in Aiden’s face. Aiden said something to the crowd I can’t hear, probably something like “Justice is coming!” The guards locked Aiden in the van and he was driven back to the jail.
10:30 a.m. I drove back to Salem. I park at Steve’s market next to Lifebridge and I eat lunch at the shelter. After lunch I see Michael at the flagposts. Michael tells me that we have a new neighbor at our encampment. I’m a little apprehensive about this individual, since I believe it’s the same individual that had started a fight in the shelter a few nights before.
12:30 p.m. I drove my truck over to the parking lot next to the abandoned building owned by the council of aging in Salem. I planned on doing some work but could not focus. My friend Loriann called me and asked me if I would check out a car for her son Josh up in Nashua New Hampshire. I agreed, and we plan on meeting later in the afternoon. I’m very close with Lorianne and her family. Her two sons were my first clients after I received my recovery coach certification. I’ve grown very close to our family over the years and I’ve been there for them through many ordeals.
6:00 p.m. I met Lorianne and her son Josh near the highway in Danvers. We drive to Nashua and we meet up with The guy that’s selling the car that Josh wants. It’s a 2003 Audi A4. I looked the car over and I am surprised at what good condition it’s in. The guy wants 3000 for the car. I talked him down to $2,800. After Josh buys the car, this being his first car since you just got his license, Lorianne takes us out for burgers at Five Guys in Nashua. When we leave Five guys, I drive Josh’s new car and Josh rides shotgun with me. Lorianne takes her car home to Rockport. It takes about 50 minutes to get back to Danvers where my truck is, a hand Josh’s car over to him and he drives the rest of the way to Rockport.
9:00 p.m. I drove my truck to Salem. I parked near the forest. I hiked into the woods and I sleep in my tent for the night.
