‘I feel my whole body burning,’ says Oklahoma death row inmate during execution Published January 10, 2014 Associated Press

A man has been executed by lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary almost 20 years after orchestrating the brutal assault and robbery of his co-worker at a Tulsa convenience store.

Michael Lee Wilson, 38, was convicted in the killing of Richard Yost, 30, who aspired to one day manage the Quiktrip store. Wilson, who was convicted of first-degree murder, was the third person executed for the February 25, 1995, crime; the fourth defendant is serving a life term.

George Zimmerman’s estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman called police Monday, saying that her husband had punched her father in the face and that he was threatening them with a gun. It is the most recent evidence of tensions between Shellie Zimmerman and her husband, who was acquitted two months ago in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin after a widely controversial murder trial.

This week has pissed me off. It’s been a week filled with news I’d rather forget, but really, it’s one we all should remember. It should be a rallying cry, an opportunity for those interested in justice to reform a broken system and expedite a punishment reserved for a deserving few.

“You’re sound asleep when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door. Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers. At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your way. With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.

 

You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open it. In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

Squad Car Dreams

What Jefferson Had in Mind

December 29, 2012

Fred Reed

Dismal notes of a long-time police reporter:

Almost all accused criminals are guilty. The reasons are two. First, almost all are caught in the act. The driver wobbles across three lanes of traffic, has a half-empty bottle of Beam on the seat, and blows pickled as a gherkin on the Alkasensor. Not a whole lot of doubt here. Or he is found coming out of somebody else’s window with somebody else’s television under his arm. He is probably stealing it. Or he scores 75 on the radar gun in a thirty zone in front of a school. Or he proposes sex to an undercover cop for twenty bucks. Not a lot of mystery here. Unless you have seen female cops.

The second reason is that the DA won’t paper a case he can’t win. He is overworked as it is, and needs to look good by keeping his convictions up. He won’t take iffy cases.

Yet the criminal justice system is crooked from the gitgo. Start with the idea of trial by a jury of your peers. It doesn’t exist, unless you are rich or a celebrity case. Some ninety-five percent of cases are settled by plea bargaining. If everybody asked for a jury trial, the entire system would stop. If you do insist, the judge in all likelihood will be so angry that he will do his best to get you convicted and then give you the max. You pay heavily for exercising imaginary constitutional rights.

It gets worse. Consider plea bargaining. You are walking through a red-light-and-dance-club region and an undercover police woman in a three-inch plastic mini-skirt and fishnet stockings says, “Hi, honey. You sportin’?” You are not. Kidding, you say, “I want to do it in a swimming pool full of raspberry jello. I’ll give you a million dollars.” That’s an offer of a specific amount for a specific act. Bingo. You are arrested for soliciting prostitution. Which you were not. And cops know exactly how to phrase things to avoid an entrapment defense.

You are now screwed though not, alas, literally. Your choice is to fight the charge, with the ensuing publicity, loss of job and marriage plus huge legal bills, or plead to something like public lewdness with a small fine, no publicity, and a criminal record for a sex offense. Try getting a security clearance with that.

Experts Weigh in After Four Witnesses in Trayvon Martin Case Change Story

Several key witnesses in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by Neighborhood Watch captain George Zimmerman have changed their original stories since first being interviewed by law enforcement, according to news reports about recently released evidence in the case.

Some analysts cited in the media speculated that three of those revised accounts might hurt the shooter’s claims of self-defense as the second-degree murder prosecution goes through the Florida court system.

The Release Reactions (Zimmerman)

April 26, 2012 Leave a comment

After walking free for two months before he was charged, George Zimmerman was released on bond for murder charges. That release has many people questioning the judicial system.

Zimmerman was released on $150,000 on April 23. He is required to wear a GPS monitoring device and to check in with courts if he goes to another state. That result is insufficient to many who think the process has been a joke.

The Arrest of George Zimmerman: Justice or Politics?

Most people have responded to Angela Corey’s decision to charge George Zimmerman with second degree murder in one of two ways: they have applauded her or they have cautioned people to wait for the trial — in which we will hear all the facts.

Very few people have accused Angela Corey of filing these charges for political reasons, despite her affidavit of probable cause not demonstrating probable cause, or indicating any new evidence that her predecessor didn’t have. Indeed nothing new has become public that would indicate significant new evidence since March 13, when the Sanford police concluded their investigation.

A U.S. ARMY SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER’S FIGHT FOR MILITARY JUSTICE

October 16, 2011 Leave a comment

“Three Days In August” by Bob McCarty

U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt.1st Class Kelly A. Stewart admitted to having a one-night stand with a 28-year-old German woman the night of Aug. 22, 2008. She did, too. Both knew sex was part of the plan when they left the discotheque near Stuttgart. Two months later, however, her story changed and the highly-decorated combat veteran found himself facing rape and kidnapping charges.

During court-martial proceedings one year later, Stewart faced an Army court-martial panel comprised of soldiers who had recently returned from a 16-month deployment with the Army attorney serving as Stewart’s lead prosecutor.

Despite a lack of both physical evidence and eyewitnesses to the alleged crimes, it took only three days for the panel to find Stewart guilty of numerous offenses — including aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, forcible sodomy and assault and battery — and sentence him to eight years behind bars.

Incredibly, the conviction was based almost entirely on the testimony of Stewart’s accuser, a one-time mental patient who, with the backing of the German government, refused to allow her medical records to be entered as evidence.

When several witnesses came forward during a post-trial hearing to reveal startling proof that the accuser had lied several times during the trial, their words were largely ignored by the court and Stewart remained behind bars.

LEASHING THE MAD DOGS – COPS OUT OF CONTROL

August 20, 2011 Leave a comment

Recently, you have probably read a spate of justifiably angry Internet commentaries and watched some truly shocking and sickening videos reporting on and recording the scandal of the ever-increasing instances of senseless, sadistic rogue police brutality throughout the United States. Being provided with a badge, a gun, and a para-military uniform has apparently become a license for their holders to run amok—intimidating, threatening, terrorizing, assaulting, even killing innocent citizens.

Disquietingly, most of the thuggish culprits in the episodes that have received widespread publicity seem to have suffered little or nothing in the way of punishment that fits their wrongdoing—certainly nothing anywhere near the punishment mere “civilians” would have received for the selfsame misbehavior. There are several reasons for this appalling situation. First, police forces seem strangely reluctant to purge from their ranks, on their own initiatives and in thoroughgoing fashion, the brutal, the sadistic, the semi-moronic, and the other degenerate creatures who somehow contrive to join “the Force”—apparently, from the Dark Side—in order to acquire badges and guns wherewith to lord their misbegotten “authority” over other people, even unto killing them. Out of charity, one does not want to conclude that policemen in large numbers lack sufficient personal honor, integrity, and sense of duty to act on their own accord to clean out their own stables. Yet, the fact remains that wielding the shovels would not require the labors of Hercules, because the hard-core undesirables are relatively few, and surely are readily identifiable (especially, after all, by police trained in the latest techniques of “profiling,” reading aberrant facial expressions and body language, and so on).

So, after some notable examples were made within the ranks—and, even better, within the……………..

To Serve and Protect: Privatization and Community in Criminal Justice

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Government police forces, prosecutors, courts, and prisons are all historically recent developments. Prior to their development, community-based and private systems handled many matters that are today referred to the government criminal justice system. With the increasing size, complexity, expense, and unresponsiveness of the government criminal justice system, attention is once again being given to private alternatives.

In this book, Benson transcends the policies of liberals and conservatives that have supported government’s traditional role in criminal justice. With lucidity and rigor, Benson examines the gamut of private-sector inputs to criminal justice, ranging from private-sector outsourcing of prisons, security, and arbitration to full “private justice” such as business and community-imposed sanctions, crime prevention, and increased private security and self-defense.

This book examines how private justice measures are a traditional response to government failure in crime prevention and justice. To reduce crime and protect civil liberties, Benson weighs the benefits and liabilities of various levels of privatization, offering correctives for the current gridlock to make criminal justice truly accountable to the citizenry and simultaneously reduce the unchecked power of government.

The Right to Lie to the Cops by Anthony Gregory

July 13, 2011 Leave a comment

In Casey Anthony’s case we see an example of a grave injustice in the modern system. I’m not talking about her acquittal. When the prosecutor fails to prove someone’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, the only responsible thing for the jury to do is refuse to damn the suspect to time in a cage. An innocent person imprisoned is so much worse than a guilty person let go, as in the former instance the state seduces all of society to cheer on and legitimize an injustice. Also, whereas justice for the guilty is at least a metaphysical possibility outside of prison, it is downright precluded institutionally for the innocent on the inside.

The actual travesty here is the offense of which Casey Anthony has been convicted: four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. This should not be an offense in a free society, and I am struck by how little this horror has gained attention in the last week.

Lying in most circumstances is immoral. And lying to cover up one’s crimes might be especially egregious, and arguably criminal in itself. But Casey Anthony was acquitted of the actual crime of murder. As far as the state is concerned, she has not been proven guilty. So why is her dishonesty with the police an offense against the law?

Many can’t even relate to this point as they like the idea of this person suffering at least somewhat for a crime they assume she committed but got away with. Taking it to different contexts, we can see the full injustice involved in criminalizing lying to the police. What if people are lying to protect themselves from persecution? Indeed, when we engage in the thought experiment of what would be a morally acceptable lie, we can’t help but think of such examples as lying to Nazis about Jews hiding somewhere, or lying to cover for a runaway slave. If lying is ever defensible, it doubtless is when the only deceived and harmed persons are agents of oppression, and it is done purely in service of preserving someone’s rightful freedom.

Attorney Wesley Hoyt affirmed as Mr. Steele’s representation, Edgar releases Installment #2: The Tao of ED

Attorney Wesley Hoyt affirmed as Mr. Steele’s representation, Edgar releases Installment #2: The Tao of ED

(Authored by the www.free-edgar-steele.com Administrators. There was a court hearing today 7/6/2011 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on this matter.)Today marks the beginning of a defense for Edgar Steele by attorney Wesley W. Hoyt, formerly the attorney for Cyndi Steele. Over the objection of the Government, who did not want Mr.
Steele to be represented by an effective attorney, the Court ruled that Mr. Hoyt, who was selected by Mr. Steele from the beginning, would be, from this time forth, Mr. Steele’s “attorney of record.” (That term will have special significance to anyone paying attention to this saga as it unfolds, especially in light of events that are about to happen in the very near – we will keep you posted.)

What today’s ruling means is that one of the people who have been closely monitoring the progress of Mr. Steele’s case last August, and one of the ones who believes that Mr. Steele is innocent beyond a shadow of a doubt, is now authorized to lead his defense. Mr. Steele’s principle defense is government fabrication of evidence, i.e., two tape recordings where supposedly he asked someone to kill his wife. Although the evidence of government fabrication was suppressed in his trial, Mr. Hoyt’s main thrust will be to bring that
evidence to light to prove government misconduct by Mr. Steele’s accusers.

We asked Mr. Hoyt to comment, however, he is not able to do so based on the local court rules, so you’ll just have to accept our interpretation of events as they unfold, with the promise that we will do the best we can to report the facts as they appear to be.

We understand that Mr. Steele was very calm and in good spirits as he celebrated his sixty-sixth birthday yesterday. He now has a very Zen attitude and is developing what he refers to as the Tao of Ed, (pronounced “Dow”). We wish him great endurance and peace of mind as he endures this false imprisonment and conviction on false charges.

(The first literation of Ed’s “The Tao of ED” — Installment #2 — is INCLUDED
BELOW for your convenience.)

Please encourage everyone you know to send contributions as we need to pay to keep this fight alive, which is really a battle for our own freedom with Ed as the one who is vicariously suffering for us now, but before long they will be knocking at your door, arresting you on equally false charges, and if they can get away with it in Ed’s case, they surely won’t be halted from doing it in your case; if you catch our meaning.

Thanks to all the loyal followers who have given so much already, but we will never give up, never!!!!!

Americans Are Prisoners Of War…

February 26, 2011 1 comment

Most of all we need to end these wars-without-end and we must begin to cancel the corporate charters of the largest corporations; that are using the people of this nation like toilet paper or road-kill: Whichever is needed most on any given day. Either this is our country or it belongs to the ones that can steal the most and get-caught the least. The one other thing that needs to finally be ended is the farce of the two largest political parties. How can anyone with a brain continue to believe in anything or anyone that represents themselves as being part of the power-base that has consciously tried to murder this population time after time. Apparently Amerrikans have the memory-span of a gnat or maybe something smaller. Day-in and day-out these same people sell their constituents down the river for a bribe or a kickback, or just because they can: Because they know that there is NOTHING which this public can ever do about it. What’s happening today in Wisconsin is the perfect illustration of this vile and completely Anti-American stance.

When LBJ took office this system had been shattered: And it’s been all downhill from there!

1 Have you got your prison jump-suit yet; cause you’re going to be needing it very soon IF you don’t get off your ass and begin to try and change this nightmare for yourself, as well as for anyone that you care about!

The Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried of the dire punishment they will face, when they are one day convicted of treason against the United States of America for siding with the enemy and giving him aide and comfort.The Uniform Code of Military Justice is quite specific that in such a case even the Joint Chiefs can be punished with death, on order of a military tribunal.

The Uniform Codes of Military Justice, on the crime of treason says under Article 906 — Espionage, section c:A sentence of death may be adjudged by a court-martial for an offense under this section article only if the members unanimously find, beyond a reasonable doubt, one or more of the following aggravating factors:

Out of the Darkness »Edgar Steele Needs Your Help

Published by admin, on September 16th, 2010

by Cyndi G. Steele pictured with her family

EDGAR J. STEELE has been entrapped by a legal system that presumes his guilt in the face of false charges.

Ed, my husband, has been in jail and solitary confinement for three months in Spokane, Washington because of false allegations that he masterminded a murder-for-hire plot to kill me and my mother. I have never believed that Ed was involved in such a plot!

Ed has defended the politically incorrect for years; people who, were it not for him, never would have had representation.

Those who oppose Ed hate the truth and have threatened to harm Ed, me and our family in the past. Clearly, he is a political prisoner of the USA — and, quite literally, he is fighting for his life.

Here is the bottom line: Without experts to prove that false government tape recordings are only imitations of Ed’s speech patterns using voice cloning technology; and without experts to present the truth about alleged explosives, Ed will be “sent to the gallows” for something he didn’t do.

We have an opportunity to prevent this great injustice. This is not the first time the government has made false criminal allegations against innocent people.
