My Love Story / Kidnapped Under the Color of Law for Saying “I Love You” by Gypsy Taub

Hi these are Lazaris meditation and self healing tapes from Gypsy:

Love Story / Kidnapped Under the Color of Law For Saying “I Love You”
by Gypsy Taub


Media contact: Inti Gonzalez, LoverLily3(at)gmail(dot)com
On December 26th, Colorado daycare owner Carla Faith was caught hiding 26 children behind a false wall. The owner was charged with misdemeanor child abuse with a bail of $3,000 according to ABC news.-

Gypsy Taub had zero contact with the alleged 14 year old victim and was given three felony charges plus a misdemeanor charge with bail amount of $345,000 on December 17th. Gypsy’s bail amount is more than a hundred times higher than the bail amount for Carla Faith.

Dear citizens of planet earth, dear friends, this is Gypsy Taub writing to you from Santa Rita Jail. You can read my bio at I am writing my story for you on scraps of paper that I secretly ripped out of books from the jail library, even though I ordered writing paper and paid for a hundred and fifty sheets, it was never given to me. The rest of my order, which consisted of at least fifty items of crap food was fulfilled perfectly. The only item that was denied to me was paper. I was going to trade my food for paper with other girls, but it turned out that no one received any paper for the past three weeks.

It is clear that the authorities are threatened by what we might write on that paper. I feel bad for brutalizing the jail library, but I feel that my message is important. I thank you for reading it.

This is a love story, this is a case of “Love vs. Facism”. That is what I am going to name my documentary about my criminal case.

I highly encourage you to read my appeal brief, where I appeal my restraining order that was given to me for saying “I love you” to a young man who is under 18, his name is Phoenix. I am very proud of what I said in my appeal, not only because it brilliantly exposes the lies of Phoenix’s mother, Raven Thrasher at the restraining order hearing. But, even more so because of the way I challenge the moral values of our society in the name of love.

Also make sure to read my love letter to Phoenix that I passed to him at Willard middle school with my son’s help.

My letter was ripped out of Phoenix’s hands by the jealous controlling vice principal, Mr. Albeck.

Phoenix asked Mr. Albeck to let him read the letter, but Mr. Albeck refused, Instead he called the police and initiated a restraining order against me. Gypsy’s letter to Mr. Albeck is published on her blog on www.MyNakedTruth.TV

After this happened, Phoenix put 4 cuts on his left arm. When my son Daniel found out about it we called the police and asked them to go to Phoenix’s house to check on him.

Phoenix’s mother refused to show him to the police. Berkeley Police Department did absolutely nothing. No CPS follow up was scheduled.

Please also read my Affidavit of truth, which I will be submitting to the court at my next court date. It will be posted on my blog as well.

Check out my charity blog on that blog I talk about my work with troubled youth/street kids in Mexico. Watch the 5 minute video which highlights my unprecedented success in that field of therapy.

I will be adding documents and articles for you to read and review on my blog. [www.MyNakedTruth.TV] under the heading of “My Love Story”. My children are helping me publish them, I hope you enjoy reading them. Your comments are welcome.


In late June of 2019, I was issued a restraining order that was based entirely on false accusations with zero evidence presented. I was accused of stalking my son’s 14 year old friend, Phoenix.

Commissioner Tamiza Hockenhull gave me 8 minutes to present my defense. She then gave me a 4 year restraining order based on me saying: “I love you” in an email and based on another email saying a few cuss words. The second email was not written by me, but by my son Daniel Gonzalez.

Commissioner Hockenhul was fully aware that the email in question was sent by my son’s email account. Phoenix’s mother, Raven Thrasher, purposely mixed it in with my emails when she submitted my emails to the commissioner.

Taub sent Phoenix 75 emails over the course of six months, which breaks down to about 3 emails per week. Two thirds of the emails were Youtube links to music, the remaining 25 emails contained a lot of self-help healing tapes and healing technique descriptions. A few emails criticized Phoenix’s mother and contained Youtube videos made by therapists about surviving a narcissistic parent. Most of the remaining emails were attempts to resolve conflict between Phoenix’s friends and also conflict, that Phoenix’s mother created, between Phoenix, Daniel and Gypsy.

There were just a few romantic emails sent, none of them were sexual. None of them contained any threats nor demands.

Commissioner Tamiza Hockenhull retaliated against me, because a month prior I confronted her at another hearing and called her racist, unfair, and a disgrace. After she refused to give me and my 3 kids a restraining order against my downstairs neighbor.

I have video footage of one of my neighbors chasing me with a stick and swinging to hit me as another neighbor restrained her at the last second. That was my neighbor’s reaction to me asking her to stop filling up my trash can.

My other neighbor from the same apartment made death threats on video. The video shows police officers saying that she has threatened them too. A detailed police report was provided to the non-judge Commissioner Hockenhull. Commissioner said that I am a difficult person to live with and that I invited my neighbors to act the way they did by turning on my video camera.

Since then my neighbors and I resolved our conflict and became very good friends.

Getting back to my original story, the alleged victim’s mother, Ms. Thrasher wrote; “I am afraid of her” in what she claims to be Phoenix’s statement on the restraining order request, meaning that Phoenix was afraid of me. That was clearly a lie. My discovery from the DA included a police report where Phoenix was questioned, and where he clearly stated that he was not afraid of me. Furthermore, the alleged victim Phoenix did not show up for the hearing. In reality the restraining order was attained against his will.

I appealed the restraining order on the basis of abusive discretion and 8 violations of my constitutional rights. The appeal is in its final stages and will be dissolved as long as the San Francisco court of appeals upholds our constitutional rights as it claims to do.

Since the restraining order was issued, I was charged with 4 restraining violations and with child molesting.

The molestation charges is based on a statement of their so-called “probable cause” that is going to be posted on my blog [www.MyNakedTruth.TV]

The “probable cause” is a really dumb police report written by Sgt. McGee that analyzes my emails with Phoenix where I said things like; “You have betrayed us all”, “We came to this planet to help humanity”.

None of the emails in the report were even remotely sexual, nor in anyway threatening.

One email said; “I know that you have feelings for me. You have made it very clear in very beautiful ways. I have feelings for you too.”

There were some Youtube songs in the emails, once again none of them were sexual.

Sgt. McGee took what I said in my emails out of context, distorted and misrepresented what I said. He did his very best to make me look like a sexual predator.

He says that one song was called “Lover lover lover” – by Leonard Cohen. McGee said in his report: “and then she proceeded to explain the lyrics” Making it sound like the lyrics were sexual.

In reality that song is about shame and remorse that a man felt about his past and has nothing to do with sex.

The report has a box at the bottom where the judge was supposed to sign, put their name and date in. It said “this probable cause is/is-not sufficient to detain this arrestee”.

That box was left completely blank. Nothing was circled nor filled out. Deputy DA Paul Pinney, charges me with molestation based on that report without getting approval from a judge.

The next so-called violation of the restraining order happened on September 6th. Police came to my door pretending that they were there for a different reason. When I came out they arrested me for alleged violation of the restraining order because I admitted to driving down Ashby Ave.

I told the police that the address listed on the restraining order was not the Ashby Ave address but some San Francisco address. The officer didn’t believe me. He pulled the restraining order up on the screen. As hard as he searched the restraining order did not contain the Ashby Address. I asked the officer to release me, he refused.

Phoenix’s mother, Raven Thrasher, asked the police to make sure to get my kids taken away from me, which the other officer tried to do. Luckily my daughter, Inti Gonzalez, is over 18 and was at home when this happened. So the police were unable to take my kids away.

For the record, I live three blocks away from the corner of Ashby and Sacramento in Berkeley where Phoenix used to live. I have been passing through that intersection multiple times a day for the past 11 years that I have lived at my current address.

On September 6th I was kidnapped under the color of law because I stopped at the traffic light for 45 seconds (according to Phoenix’s step mother, Angie Brandt, I idled for 45 seconds).

Ms. Brandt and Ms. Thrasher claimed that I stopped in front of their house in an attempt to make contact with Phoenix.

This happened on a Friday at about 1:00 or 2:00 pm. Phoenix was supposed to be and most likely was in school. He wasn’t home, while his parent’s car were parked in front of the house.

Now why would I try to make contact with Phoenix at his house when he’s at school and his jealous mother is at home? If i wanted to contact Phoenix I could have easily come to Berkeley High, to see him during their off campus lunch.

I never once did that even though there was no restraining order against me at Berkeley High School. Since my son goes to the same school I could have easily come there to see my son’s teachers and try to see Phoenix, I never did that either.

I spent 6 days in jail and on September 11th saw Judge Sanda Bean. Unlike the majority of judges in Oakland Sandra Bean actually deserves to be called “Your Honor”.

The DA, Mr. Biselli claimed that I parked in front of Phoenix’s house even though the discovery says that Phoenix’s parents said that I idled for 45 seconds. Even they never said that I was parked. The DA, Mr. Biselli lied to the judge.

Luckily Sandra Bean saw through the manipulation and asked if there was a traffic light there. She added Phoenix’s Ashby address to the restraining order and told me that I was free to drive and stop for traffic lights at the Ashby and Sacramento intersection as long as I don’t park and don’t get out of my vehicle.

She asked the DA if I had ever missed a court date. The answer was “no”. She released me on my own recognizance against the objection the DA Biselli.

Two weeks later, I received a notice in the mail giving me two new misdemeanor charges for violating the restraining order because I drove by the Ashby and Sacramento intersection. On the day of the alleged violations I passed by their house twice. The light was green and I passed by the intersection quickly.

Phoenix’s parents claimed over and over again that I drove by slowly and creepily looked at Phoenix’s window. This makes me laugh. How would they ever know if I did?

Ms. Thrasher did install a security camera on her front door, but because there is a corner in front of her door their security camera can’t even see my face in my school bus that I drive until I’m almost all the way past her house.

What blows me away is that DA’s gave me two new charges (potentially two additional years in jail) for passing by the intersection that the judge allowed me to drive by two weeks prior. The DA literally placed himself above the judge and gave me two more potential years of jail time.

I was offered a “deal” by deputy DA, Jason Quinn. I told him I was not going to accept his dirty deal.

Since then they seemed to have lost interest in me for a while.

On December 17th, I was walking around Berkeley with my 14 year old son, Daniel Gonzalez, enjoying the sunny weather. We were a few blocks south of Berkeley High School. Daniel and I were looking for my turtle neck sweater and my cardigan that i had forgotten on a concrete structure of an apartment building the day before. We wandered around for about half hour, finally found my clothes, and were slowly making our way back home. I was wearing a neon pink wraparound long skirt and a burgundy shawl with flower design on it. I certainly not dressed to commit a crime and flee.

Out of nowhere a regular car pulled up. Four officers came out and asked us what we were doing. We told them that we exercise our right to remain silent. That’s what I have trained my kids to always say to the police.

The officers instantly handcuffed me without any explanation. More police cars pulled up and they put me in one of them. It was truly heartbreaking to see Daniel’s face as they dove me away. Daniel was nearly in tears.

They confiscated my 1,000$ google pixel phone that I had saved money for, for a year. I had purchased it only for its video camera quality. This is my only camera that i use to produce my TV series and film my documentaries, etc. They confiscated my phone and my only camera “for evidence”. Who knows if I’ll ever see it again.

When I arrived at the police station, I finally got to talk to Sgt. McGee who is in charge of my case. By that time he had already given me six new charges, two or three of which were felonies. I asked him why I was arrested. He said, “you were near Berkeley High School”. I said “that’s not true”. He said “I saw you there”. I said “That’s impossible”. He said “There is a restraining order against you at Berkeley High”. I said “actually there is not”. Sgt. McGee said “Are you sure? Why not?” I said “I don’t know, probably because my son goes to Berkeley High and I should be able to talk to his teachers if I need to. All I can tell you is that there is no restraining order for Berkeley High. Go and check the restraining order”.

I asked Sgt. McGee if he joined the police force because he cared for justice or if it was for some other reason. McGee nodded to the “Justice” reason. He had a guilty and lost look on his face. I told him that Phoenix’s mother lies all the time. I told him that Phoenix was being abused by her. McGee and the other officers made smirky smiles as if they knew that I was full of shit.

I said “It’s amazing how none of you are interested in that subject.” They gave me another smirky smile.

Sgt. McGee started lecturing me for having feelings for Phoenix. I told him that I had the right to my emotions. That made all the officers in the room very uncomfortable and they started heading towards the door. As they were exiting I added, “And I also have the right to express my emotions by the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution”. McGee said, as he was running out the door “Is there anything else I can do for you Ms.Taub?” I said, “In the interest of justice please make sure to put in your report that there is no restraining order against me at Berkeley High”. He nodded and disappeared.

Had Sgt. McGee really cared about justice he would have erased my false charges that he had just given me, apologized, and released me.

However, once the charges were put on paper it was probably too late for him to take them back. Sgt. McGee really doesn’t seem like a bad person to me. He’s most likely just brainwashed by Phoenix’s mother, who is a very pretty belly dancer and a great actress. I bet she made an angel face and shook her tits and ass at him every time she lied to him.

When I went to court on December 20th, I was expecting to see all my new charges dropped, since they were based on a restraining order that did not include Berkeley High.

Instead a deputy slipped me a piece of paper after they put me on the stand. So I had zero time to review it. On that paper it said that there were three new felony charges (Felony stalking, child abuse, attempted child abduction plus another restraining order violation charge). Four prosecutors were in the room.

The judge was Ms. Travino. She was very upset with me because of what she read in my probable cause. She didn’t tell me what it was.

Bail was set at $345,000 and she refused to reduce the bail and told me that I am a danger to the community. I was not allowed to say a word in my defense.

I asked Ms. Travino to reduce my bail. I told her that I’m very low income and a single mother of three children and that I have never done anything violent in my life, my record was 100% clean, and that I had never missed a single court date. She refused to reduce the bail even though the piece of paper that they handed to me, a few minutes earlier, clearly stated that being released on a reasonable bail was one of my rights.

I was sent back to Santa Rita Jail. I called the most affordable bonds company, “All Pro”. they told me that because of the severity of my charges they would require not only a $6,000 downpayment, but also that someone from California would have to Co-sign and put a lien on their house that had at least $345,000 in equity. My father was willing to put up his house in Minnesota but he didn’t qualify because it was out of state and he didn’t have enough equity in his house.

I found out from a lawyer friend that people usually get $250,000 bail for murder. My bail is 50% higher than that of a murderer.
They put me in a yellow uniform with violent inmates. Last time I was incarcerated I was assaulted by a yellow uniformed inmate. She shoved her thumb in my eye.

It breaks my heart to see this illegitimate court system enslave innocent people and destroy the lives of millions.

My bunky (cell mate) Chassy Headley, has been incarcerated for almost a year for breaking a window. It was her first offense. She was first given a public defender who didn’t let her say a single word to the judge. When she fired that public defender she was denied legal representation all together.

It tools them 9 months to sentence her. Her sentence was three months in a mental hospital in Napa Valley. Where she will be forced to take psych meds.

It’s been almost a year since she’s been incarcerated, and she spent the last two months waiting to be transported to Napa so she can start serving her three month sentence of forced psychiatric drug abuse. She is reluctant to stand up for herself out of fear that they will never let her out.
