Life Changing ‘Near Death Experience’ Saved a Drug Buyer from Prison

Judge Robert Pawson, at a sentencing hearing in Swindon Crown Court, sentenced a heavy user of ecstasy to nothing but a suspended sentence after hearing how a near death experience had changed the (now former) drug user’s outlook on life.

Steven Hancock, 46, frequently purchased ecstasy pills on the darknet throughout 2017 and perhaps even earlier than 2017. He told the court that he heavily used both ecstasy and marijuana. The man explained that sometimes he took as many as five pills every night. Despite his heavy drug use, Hancock maintained a steady job and seemingly dealt with his rent and other bills on time.

Both his employer and his landlord attended the hearing to show their support for Hancock. The presence of his landlord and boss—in light of the situation Hancock’s actions had placed him in—had a tremendous impact on Judge Pawson. Not only did the men voice their support for Hancock as a person and employee, they wrote letters that further backed up their claims. What may have had the most significant impact on the case, though, was an epiphany Hancock had experienced while in the hospital in December.

Even after his March 2017 arrest, Hancock continued his so-called “hard core drug use.” By all accounts, Hancock maintained his borderline terrifying ecstasy abuse until December. In December, likely exacerbated by his increased intake of tobacco and marijuana, Hancock suffered from an intense case of pneumonia. While sick, Hancock suffered from a sudden cardiac arrest and had a near death experience as his heart stopped beating.

Medical professionals saved his life. After leaving the hospital, Hancock said, he stopped smoking and using drugs. Hancock’s defender, Richard Williams, told the court that Hancock had experienced an epiphany. Near death experiences have routinely changed the lives of those who have experienced the pivotal moment before death where “one’s life flashes before their eyes.”

Prosecutor Alistair Hegarty explained that authorities seized the first package in March 2017. The package contained 52 ecstasy pills and a supplier in Amsterdam had shipped it to Hancock’s Pinehurst home. One month later, authorities seized another package from the same vendor. Shipped, of course, to the same address. The package contained 54 ecstasy pills. The police then raided Hancock’s home where they discovered ecstasy, marijuana, an incriminating cell phone, and Hancock himself.

Hancock had no objections to the police’s questions. He told them that he had been buying drugs online—with bitcoin—for heavy personal use. He did admit, however, that he sometimes gave ecstasy pills to his friends who wanted it or felt the need to have ecstasy. He reinforced that he had not profited from any of the drugs and that he had purchased them exclusively for personal use. Hancock pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana and ecstasy and to two counts of fraudulently evading prohibition.

Judge Robert Pawson suspended the man’s sentence and pointed out that a report indicated Hancock had a very low chance of offending again.

    Amazing coincidence Strzoks ugly ass wife promoted to head of SEC enforcement hours after wiener emails found..

    “Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either — but right through every human heart — and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains … an un-uprooted small corner of evil.

    Since then I have come to understand the truth of all the religions of the world: They struggle with the evil inside a human being (inside every human being). It is impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety, but it is possible to constrict it within each person.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

    Not money wasting; fighting the last war. The MIC learned how to get rich fighting the cold war and didn’t see any need to change the formula. Now it’s down to brass tacks, and they find themselves of the wrong foot.

    This is not anything to celebrate. If the US finds itself unable to answer a credible threat from advanced weapons, then the administration is more likely to preemptively strike. That can only lead to WW3 in a big way, and inevitable global collapse. This is not a problem for the elites, they imagine they’ll be fine with whatever corner of the world they plan to run off to and wait it out. The rest of us get nukes and a planet of cinders for our trouble.

    Too Funny, China stole the tech from us… Ok smart ass.. Then why is it then if you saved them all that R&D work YOU don’t have a working program to show for all your advanced work in the area?

    Hyper-x was a test program that did a REAL good job of melting prototypes, Did it produce a viable working product?

    Ideas are not that hard to catch on to, All i have seen here today is a bunch of yank claims China stole all the plans and were it not for this they would not be where they are today, That thinking is total bullshit, I saw China develop the worlds fastest wind tunnel, have American thinkers bested them on that? NO. All this sissy talk of China being too stupid to out develop the USA is lame in the extreme, On this single topic Both Russia and china have a much better understanding of the entire process of hyper sonic projectiles And propelling them, Name calling and claims of IP theft are hollow and childish, Proof is in the results, Propaganda will not develop a HS missile America… China can prove that to you today, but your arrogance is just too thick….

    One of the first people to start working with Bitcoin’s founder in 2009 was Martti Malmi, 25, a Helsinki programmer who invested in Bitcoins. “I sold them in 2011 and bought a nice apartment,” he says. “Today, I could have bought 100 nice apartments.”

    Communication with Bitcoin’s founder was becoming less frequent by early 2011. Nakamoto stopped posting changes to the Bitcoin code and ignored conversations on the Bitcoin forum.

    Andresen was unprepared, however, for Satoshi Nakamoto’s reaction to an email exchange between them on April 26, 2011.

    “I wish you wouldn’t keep talking about me as a mysterious shadowy figure,” Nakamoto wrote to Andresen. “The press just turns that into a pirate currency angle. Maybe instead make it about the open source project and give more credit to your dev contributors; it helps motivate them.”

    Andresen responded: “Yeah, I’m not happy with the ‘wacky pirate money’ tone, either.”

    Then he told Nakamoto he’d accepted an invitation to speak at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters. “I hope that by talking directly to them and, more importantly, listening to their questions/concerns, they will think of Bitcoin the way I do – as a just-plain-better, more efficient, less-subject-to-political-whims money,” he said. “Not as an all-powerful black-market tool that will be used by anarchists to overthrow the System.”

    From that moment, Satoshi Nakamoto stopped responding to emails and dropped off the map.

    Perhaps the most compelling parallel between the two Nakamotos are their professional skill sets and career timeframes. Andresen says Satoshi Nakamoto told him about how long it took him to develop Bitcoin – a span that falls squarely into Dorian S. Nakamoto’s job lapse starting in 2001. “Satoshi said he’d been working on Bitcoin for years before he launched it,” Andresen says. “I could see the original code taking at least two years to write. He had a revelation that he had solved something no one had solved before.”

    For his part, Andresen says he is inclined to respect Nakamoto’s anonymity. “When programmers get together, we don’t talk about who Satoshi Nakamoto is,” he says. “We talk about how we should have invested in more Bitcoin. I mean, we’re curious about it, but honestly, we really don’t care.”

    “He is very wary of government interference in general,” she says. “When I was little, there was a game we used to play. He would say, ‘Pretend the government agencies are coming after you.’ And I would hide in the closet.”

    I have not been able to find steady work as an engineer or programmer for ten years. I have worked as a laborer, polltaker, and substitute teacher. I discontinued my internet service in 2013 due to severe financial distress. I am trying to recover from prostate surgery in October 2012 and a stroke I suffered in October of 2013. My prospects for gainful employment has been harmed because of Newsweek’s article.

    Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto

    Temple City, California

    March 17, 2014

    It’s widely known that Nick Szabo knew Hal Finney since 1993 and they communicated and exchanged ideas more than once. Hal was an early Bitcoin user; in fact, he received the first bitcoin transaction from Satoshi Nakamoto.

    In addition to that, Hal lived in the same small town for ten years just a few blocks away from Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, the guy that was initially accused by some reporters to be the creator of Bitcoin.

    They? Who is “they”?

    So Mueller is working for Trump? The Republican Establishment? The Obama appointees? Trump’s own Goldman-Sachs appointees?

    The genius of appointing Sessions, yeah – that’s so clear now. To be a saboteur. In order to delay MAGA until mid-terms.

    “Too Early” to perp walk Hillary and Bill especially you know because it’s only been 40 years of crimes, at least…

    This is the 4-D Chess argument and it makes no sense on the face of it. There has been progress, but the deep state and purple revolution have proved far more powerful than this two-year-old argument permits.

    The republican establishment did, and still does despise Trump. The republicans have it all – the Senate, House, and Presidency and it is the president under judicial fire and not the arch-criminal Clinton. My eyes do not see genius, they see calamity.

    It is not so important to elect democrats or republicans, but rather people who want the Awan spy ring investigated; the Uranium, weapons and drug ratlines investigated; the wars ended, the federal reserve dissolved and our republic put on sound money, etc.

    After thinking about this for awhile now, the reason why nothing will happen is because the credibility of the Federal Government (and the USD) would be destroyed if justice were actually served. Even Trump knows that perp walking Clinton would signal the end of the Republic. The charade must go on otherwise the USA’s status in the world goes into the tank and with that the USD as the reserve currency and then the country goes full retard once the USG can’t conjure 800 billion dollars out of thin air every year to keep the masses entertained.

    The most important fact to know about why the Deep State wanted

    Donald Trump nominated to run against Hillary is simply that it made

    the Liberal, Democrat Neocons super complacent about their eventual

    victory and made them avoid taking decisions before the election that

    should have been taken.

    Ergo, today we have the Deep State telling Trump what to say

    AND NOT Paul Wolfowitz and Bill Clinton telling Hillary what to do.

    Good metaphor, which reminds me of Nassim Taleb’s presentation of the turkey’s view of the turkey farmer:

    “A turkey is fed by the farmer every morning for 1,000 days. Eventually the turkey comes to expect that every visit from the farmer means more good food. After all, that’s all that has ever happened so the turkey figures that’s all that can and will ever happen. But then Day 1,001 arrives. It’s two days before Thanksgiving and when the farmer shows up, he is not bearing food, but an ax.”

    Taleb’s advice: “Let’s not be turkeys.”

    However, since the government of the USA has become the biggest form of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters (whose primary identity was indicated by several previous comments posted here) the default position is to continue to be one of the turkeys, or one of the brain dead sheep, in order to benefit from participating inside the turkey farmers’ or shepherds’ systems, or else suffer the consequences sooner, rather than later …

    While I agreed with the statement of facts in the article above, as well as most of the comments posted under that article, I continue to see no practical ways to effectively resist the vicious feedback spirals of the funding of the political processes. Recognizing that the plutocrats own the mass media, as well as are most able to fund the politicians, may well be of some benefit to some individuals in their efforts to stop being as much of a turkey or sheep as they otherwise would continue being, the overall situation continues to get worse, faster …

    Essentially, its money system has become the American State Religion, and therefore, those who control that money system thereby control the American People. To stop the plutocrats from being able to do that would take enough people going through enough of a sufficiently radical critique of that State Religion in order to somewhat break the bondage of that debt slavery system. There are no good grounds to expect that enough Americans are able and willing to do that. On the contrary, it appears to be politically impossible for the American situation to actually change in any but the eventually worst possible ways, through series of psychotic breakdowns, due to the final failure from too much success based on being able to back up legalized lies with legalized violence.

    Several previous comments attempted to assert some historical point at which America lost its purported “moral authority.” My perspective is that there never was any beginning, but only that the situation became about exponentially worse. As that happened faster and faster, in more and more flabbergasting ways, more people began to notice the accumulating apparent anomalies due to the ways that the government of the USA had become the biggest form of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters.

    In my opinion, that the government of USA was able and willing to go through the phases of alcohol and pot prohibition, as covertly direct to happen by the plutocrats, also were milestones in the processes by which the government of the USA lost its “moral authority.” The fundamental chemical of organic chemistry was criminalized. The best plant for people was criminalized, and yet, those Huge Lies were backed by Lots of Legalized Violence for a long time, despite the consequences overall getting worse, faster, because the plutocrats benefited from every level of organized crime flourishing under those conditions.

    “Most lambs don’t catch on to the fact the shepherd is also the butcher.”

    The majority of Americans do not understand that, because they have been conditioned to feel like they do not want to understand that.

    That there must be some death control systems has driven the development of the actually existing death control systems to become as dishonest as possible, as well as to endeavour to continue becoming about exponentially more dishonest. Since the biggest and best organized gangsters made and maintained civilization for thousands of years, there is almost no publicly significant genuine opposition, but rather, only layers of controlled “opposition” groups which now surround the central core of excessively triumphant organized crimes, which in the USA have become the ways that the plutocrats are the banksters which dominate governments.

    The vast majority of Americans take for granted thinking in ways which use the DUALITIES of false fundamental dichotomies and the related impossible ideals. The article above implicitly does so, as did most of the comments posted under that article, because they tend to only point out some of the ways in which the government of the USA has become the biggest forms of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters, but do NOT propose or promote any better death control systems to replace those existing systems which previously became the most successful by becoming the most deceitful.

    It is certainly correct to say:

    “Most lambs don’t catch on to the fact the shepherd is also the butcher.”

    However, it is also correct to assert that “most lambs” do not have the slightest clue regarding how and why there must necessarily be some functions operating whereby “the shepherd is the butcher.” Indeed, the majority of people are so clueless that they do not have a clue how clueless they actually are. Tragically, that cluelessness also covers most of the publicly significant controlled “opposition” groups, who present superficially correct analysis of the facts that “the shepherd is the butcher,” but do NOT go through series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in the perception of the death control systems in general.

    Of course, someone like Mattis is NOT going to go through profound paradigm shifts in militarism, which is the supreme ideology. However, similar criticisms apply to the controlled “opposition” groups, such as illustrated by the author of the article above, as well the authors of most of the comments posted under that article.

    One previous comment posted by BigCumulusClouds that I particularly agreed with:

    “After the controlled demolition of the WTC buildings on nine eleven, we don’t have any moral authority.”

    For more than a decade, I have been collecting a record of my research into 9/11, as well as developing my political philosophy with respect to attempting to better understand how and why governments ARE the biggest forms of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters, which is the actual political context in which people like Mattis operate, as demonstrated by the recital of facts in the article above.

    Indeed, for about a half a Century I have been attempting to develop ways to think about the combined money/murder systems having become globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic weapons (where Mattis is now one of those apes.)

    However, at the present time, as well as for the foreseeable finite future, nobody who publicly states the significance of the history of false flag attacks, including states that 9/11 was the most spectacular symbol of those kinds of inside job, false flag attacks, is going to have a hope in hell of having a successful career as a politician.

    As chunga previously posted:

    I don’t hate America.

    I do hate practically everything the US gov does. Practically everything. Some day its agents will come for me for saying that …

    The world was, relatively speaking, a saner place back in the days of General Smedley Butler, than now in the days of General Mattis. That WAR IS A RACKET has gotten about exponentially worse during the times between those two.

    I wonder what those graduating from the US Naval War College were thinking inside their own minds when listening to General Mattis? Of course, I doubt that many of them are able and willing to go through sufficient series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts with respect to militarism after the development of an abundance of weapons of mass destruction, which is what I have been personally working on since I was a teenager, and first began to recognize those runaway problems, getting worse, faster, throughout my life time, as a member of the first generation that have lived during the development of those weapons of mass destruction accumulating to become many orders of magnitude greater than ever before in human history.

    Rad, I think the inefficiencies generated by the lies and their continued maintenance eventually leads to a breakdown in the communications system of the society: the costs get greater and greater until there is no profit to distribute, no growth in the commonwealth. At this point the (language/narrative/mythology) is abandoned; it is no longer reliable and serves no positive purpose. Generally, you’ll see devolution in the political process running in parallel with the promulgation and acceptance of the deceit. This could well be a clue as to what behaviours don’t lead to this outcome, but there is little reason to believe that the heretofore dominant behaviour is going to lose out to the submissive (frankly, there’s little reason.) With the abandonment of the society and its regression to a less “enlightened” state comes the opportunity to re-establish the previously held norms of social behaviour: you tell me a direct lie and I understand that you are not to be trusted. simple.

    “Moral authority”…

    Let’s sell sex and violence addiction to public for century, what is the worst that can happen?

    Just perhaps school shootings, police brutality, century of 24/7 wars, corruption, depravity are related to the fact that people can’t distinguish between fantasy and reality anymore, and it is on display in every segment of society.

    Don’t forget all the violent video games as well. Violent TV, movies, video games and meds. What could go wrong? Why doesn’t the Motion Picture Academy take a position against that? Oh, unfettered freedom of expression. Some animals are more equal than others…

    As a kid, I remember my Dad, who was a Republican before he threw his hands up, bantering with my best friends Dad who was a Democrat. Lite banter is all it was. Something to do five minutes at a BBQ.

    Now we are all at each other’s throats. It’s binary. Either your with us or you’re the enemy. Russians won’t destroy us. We are destroying ourselves. The rest of the world thinks we’re nuts.

    95% of Hollywood is pure evil. The violent movies they produce for profit damages young brains in may different ways. It’s been proven repeatedly, yet Hollywood is one of the most influential lobbies in DC so nothing ever happens. the public eats blood, death and destruction up like a free ham sandwich so we never hear a protest from these so-called “progressive” groups either.

    Heck, Obama and his pet wookie styled themselves as Hollywood celebs! They love the publicity. How many times have we seen Clinton on stage with her Hollywood friends such as her “close friend” Harvey Weinstein?

    The MSM ignores the elephant in the room what causes violence as well as these mass shootings. Easy to blame something they don’t like, such as our Constitution. Lefties, MSM and Dems hate Constitutional Rights.

    Glad you are back WB.

    As an old guy (79), I am truly amazed at the decrease to point of loss of civility in this country in general and my rural community in particular. People I considered old friends got practically apoplectic when I told them I voted for the clown instead of the criminal; and reasonable people for years have become absolutely immune from facts.

    And our gubernmint becomes increasingly immune from any strictures of the old fashioned Constitution and increasingly distanced from ‘the people’.

    No you got it all wrong sister. This ain’t my work. I retired from my so called work many years ago. Now when I go out to put bread on my table, I no longer have to work, I have fun.

    This madam is my opinion, expressed during my own free time. If you don’t like it you are a Class A Moron for continuing to look at it. But surely you attach more importance to it than nothing. Otherwise why would you be here? Your work?

    “My Way Or The High Way”

    Why do the dems have a problem with that? That is prog SOP!

    Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam stressed that the aggressors had been defeated in Yemen’s western coast despite possessing numerous weapons and enjoying financial and media support.

    He further described the invaders’ battle as “a mass suicide,” saying the offensive is aimed at killing Yemenis and end their sovereignty.

    Yemeni drones had also destroyed six armored vehicles.

    Backed by Saudi-led airstrikes, Emirate forces and militants loyal to the former Yemeni government launched the Hudaydah assault on June 13 despite warnings that it would compound the impoverished nation’s humanitarian crisis.

    The Houthis and allied armed forces, however, have managed to inflict heavy losses on the invaders.

    Please, point out who in a US leadership role isn’t a lying sack of shit. I know I upset the faithful congregation, but that doesn’t make it less true. Unless you really do believe Trump defeated ISIS.

    ” Looks like you voted for a lying sack of shit.”

    Funny how lying is the only accepted way of getting the US’s top job.

    Assad recalled for example the Mujahideen fighters who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan three decades ago, and how then-President Ronald Reagan called them ‘holy warriors’ rather than terrorists. “Now they are called terrorists, but are used anyway. Perhaps in ten years they will be used somewhere else, under another name. This is just rebranding. This is an instrument of the West,” he said.

    “This is better because they will not be part of the restoration of Syria; we simply will not let them do it. Will they come to us with money or not? Whether they offer a loan, a donation or grants, anything — we do not need the West. The West is distant from the concept of integrity; they do not give, they only take,” Assad said.

    General Jafari also pointed to the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, and said, “The North Korean leader was revolutionary, but of the Communist type, not an Islamic one.”
    That’s why he finally compromised with US. But we haven’t been ordered to compromise, he added.

    His name is Seth Rich.

    And he likely worked for Mossad, to help Trump get elected, and the Iran deal scuttled for Israel. Keep in mind of all the drama that led to the Iran deal, including Obama getting caught interfering with the Israeli elections, in a feeble attempt to unseat Bibi, who had months earlier addressed a joint session of congress about the Iran deal, and without the permission of the president, which, as I understand, is the law.

    Ha! I hit a sensitive nerve I see. Let me take another poke at the beehive in the land of milk and honey…..

    In 2009 it was revealed that the NSA had secretly taped conversations of Congresswomen Jane Harman negotiating with two AIPAC spies accused of giving sensitive information about US military activities to the Israeli government. In the taped conversation she is being asked to dismiss their espionage charges in return for large political contributions and a chairmanship of the US Intelligence Committee. This information was secretly revealed by the NSA to Nancy Polosi prior to the selection of the committee chairman and was a factor in Harmon’s failure to obtain this highly sensitive position. However, the case against the two Israeli lobbyists was dismissed — against the insistance of the FBI. No satisfactory reason has been given for this. Unfortunately, such an act of treason remains unchallenged and Jane Harman remains at her congressional job and enjoys being the third wealthiest member of Congress.

    Jonathan Jay Pollard was an American-Israeli citizen who worked for the US government. He is well known because he stole more secrets from the U.S. than has any other spy in American history. During his interrogation Pollard said he felt compelled to put the “interests of my state” ahead of his own. Although as a U.S. Navy counter-intelligence specialist he had a top-secret security clearance, by “my state” he meant the state of Israel.

    One last little fact…Seth Rich was Jewish. If you really want to go down the rabbit hole maybe Seth Rich really isn’t dead, just like that presumed dead reporter, who recently raised himself from the dead. But hey, don’t stop looking for Russian dressing. I’m sure the Russians are also in the kitchen when ever they see the opportunity.

    He isn’t going to stop on his own, he must be stopped.

    Nobody is stopping him nor is anybody running parallel investigations into things like the laptop to keep him straight.

    The AG is AWOL, and FBI and DOJ are hostile. That leaves congress, and the maverick.

    It is my belief that Comey re-opened his investigation long enough to secure the laptop and all copies, then threaten and or kill everyone at NYPD who’d seen it. Once that was done he closed it again.

    I’m talking to you reds in congress. Shit or get off the pot.

    Best way to stop an investigation is to start one.

    Best way for all politicians, and for all managers in the so-called world o’ “work,” to shift the focus away from their absenteeism gangs is to shift attention to something else, particularly by invoking their non-work-related roles as parents.

    If corruption exists to that degree—ugh—almost all of the big players have children, or children & grandchildren.

    This is a country where childless Founders—J. Madison and G. Washington—had no children of their own, but in the fake-feminist world of contemporary politics, the family life of leaders is a front & center issue, with bigwigs claiming to do everything for their kids.

    If all of these parents-in-charge are doing everything for the good of their kids, including Comey who mentioned his kids a lot in the media, we need to ask ourselves why, then, is our Republic on such shaky ground?

    Aristocrats in Old Europe also did everything for their kids and their dynastic positions, not detaching their public & personal lives at all.

    What we really need is for people in the highest ranks of leadership, whether or not they reproduced, to at least try to detach their personal lives from their professional lives, doing things for the sake of civic ideals that affect their kids no more or less than the voting citizenry they are supposed to represent in a Republic.

    The bigger question is where is the material from the Weiner laptop? Where is the kiddie porn, who has it? Let’s get this ball rolling!

    Guys like comey are protecting the clinton murder racket. Thats what happens when dirtbags get into law enforcement. comey / muler got their positions as director by kneeling down before the deep state gods and swargling their schmegma – they will not let comey go down because they go with him.

    There are only 2 options to deal with this particular infestation.

    A Techno-Industrial Theater

    Actors and stage sets hiding a network of fraud-clever evil.

    An empire that hides its primitiveness and decadence with bluster and threats.

    A degenerating ruinscape, cognitively dormant, without creativity or aesthetic values.

    A president reeking of fear while his staff drops bad acid.

    America has always been a nation of lies. Can’t be honest about the unemployment, isn’t honest about health care, it isn’t honest about how taxpayer’s money is spent, or much of anything else. America is the land of rackets! Why hell, it even wasn’t honest in keeping any of its Indian treaties over 100 years ago. Why would you think America would be honest now? America tries to get you to believe you live free here, but it has all the shades of a police state. You have no freedom. America thinks it is great, but that is one big fat lie too.
