news outlets have been silent about which one of Albert Eid's pockets
contained the loaded gun which was used to shoot William James. They usually recite the same line:
"...and apparently pulled the wrong
one out of his pocket."
Since the information about which pocket
the loaded gun was in is available, the news outlets should report it. It
appears they have elected not to. A few
media outlets, however, have reported the information made available to
them by the authorities: Albert Eid pulled the loaded gun from his right
I am aware
of a Newsday article posted on March 13th that has stated the reverse: that Eid pulled the loaded
gun from his left pocket. This is troublesome, but what is even more
bizarre is that this same online news outlet stated the loaded
gun was in Eid's right pocket just three days before!

Why is the Newsday article, posted
five days after William James' death, telling a different story—regarding
the loaded pistol—than what they published just three days before?

loaded gun was in Albert Eid's left pocket! The Which gun

Assistance: Going Too Far
how the "Freemasons are an
international brotherhood with lodges all over the world with the stated
object of mutual assistance" I do wonder if any "mutual
assistance" is going on in the press for the sake of this
"brother" in trouble. The press
seems to be de-emphasizing the fact that a man has been shot to death while
being led to believe he was safe and in the hands of brothers.
the United States of America, may a Mason shoot a man to death, and simply
because he has a blank gun on his person, be automatically considered
innocent of ill intent? If so, we have a caste system in our society when
it comes to killings. Such a system is needed to usher in global government,
when killings will be done singly and enmasse at the discretion of the
A reader reminded me that in the United States of America,
defendants are considered innocent of a crime until proven
guilty. Yes, I understand that. My intended point was that
because so many police officers are members of the [Masonic]
brotherhood,' it is probable that the investigation was biased
from the start. The reader also said, "It is NOT the police who
decide if a suspect is to be charged with a crime, and if so,
which crime(s). The DA or City Attorney makes those
determinations. The police may make recommendations, but they
don't make the decisions." This point is well taken but it needs
to be mentioned that a large percentage of attorneys and most
judges are masons. Masons take care of each other in the court
system as unfair as it may seem to outsiders.]

The Grand Lodge,
which oversees all Masonic organizations in New York, declined
comment on the tragedy except to say guns are not a normal
part of its rituals.
I can understand
the reason the Grand Lodge "declined comment" and why
nobody would tell William James' widow what happened. They
needed time to devise a plan. And they did.
It was not until
later that the Grand Lodge began to make assertions that the group involved
in what turned out to be a lethal initiation ritual is only a "social club" and is not
an officially sanctioned branch of the Masons:

will conduct a three to four month investigation to "decide
whether to reinstate the lodge, expel some or all of its

of their mutual assistance creed. (Quote source: Masonic

Man Dies In Masonic Ceremony Gone 'Tragically Wrong')
Value of a Life is Not Conditioned Upon the Status of the Person
Who Took it
William James' life is not less
valuable than any other person who was shot to death. The
fact that a Mason of high rank shot William James should have nothing to do with the thoroughness and integrity of
the investigation into how and whys of this tragic event. Albert Eid
brought a loaded semi-automatic .32 caliber pistol to a masonic rite
and shot James with that gun instead of the one with blanks. The
blank gun was brought because it
was really supposed to be used in the ritual or because its
presence would be used as an alibi. For what reason
was the gun with live ammunition brought to the ritual?
police officer involved in conducting a criminal investigation into this matter who
is also a Mason should disqualify himself from the
investigation to avoid a conflict of interest. To be a Mason and
investigate another Mason who is charged with a criminal offense is
to have an automatic conflict of interest.
many police officers are Masons. New York's Grand Master Mason,
Carl J. Fitje, used to be a New York police detective:
``The only secrets we really
have anymore are a few handshakes,'' Fitje, a retired New York
police detective, said in an interview with The Associated
Press last year.

It is no wonder
that the New York police department immediately told the press
that William James' shooting death, which occurred during a
Masonic rite, was completely accidental. Is conflict of interest
the reason the police assumed that such a precise shot was done
with what the shooter assumed was a blank gun? Is the masonic
goal of "mutual assistance" the reason the New York
police did not think it was highly unlikely that Albert Eid did
not know the feel of his own gun--which had been registered to
him since the 1950's?
