1. Introduction

Ryan Eaton communicated in electronic mail on 12 APR 2023, “The day you started stalking county employees and mapping their locations and times, I received several phone calls complaining and asking me to stop it. I untagged the posts and you replied “Nice try” and reapplied them. I contacted Facebook and they suggested I simply block you. Sorry it does not fit your last 8 months of all these elected officials trying to silence you. It was simply to protect county employees. Really is came down to economics. It is cheaper for the county to be sued by 1 and explain in court why I took action than to be sued by 9 employees of the office you tagged for ignoring their employee safety complaints.”; “I don’t know or actually care when or why you abused your wife. That seems to have happened in California and a judge or the Navy ruled on that already? I briefly tried to understand in your multiple letters you included me on, but frankly you bounce around so much got lost trying to figure out who the Nazis in Montana are and what they have to do with an email request.”
