In Loving Memory of Heather Heyer, Killed by Self-Proclaimed White Supremacist

Heather Heyer, was killed when a Dodge Charger, allegedly driven by James Alex Fields, a self-identified white supremacist, plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters.  Heyer was attending an Alt-White Rally, protesting the removal of a confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia.  She was a counter-protester when she was murdered. 20 others were severely injured. Heyer, was a paralegal at the The Miller Law Group, also in Charlottesville.  According to their website,

Heather Heyer is one of our Paralegals here at Miller Law Group and continues to be an irreplaceable asset to our firm. Heather was born and raised in the beautiful state of Virginia. Originally from Ruckersville, VA, Heather now resides here in Charlottesville.

After being struck, Heyer was transported to UVA Hospital, where she was pronounced deceased.

Virginia Governor Terry McAulife tweeted that Heyer:

“died standing up against hate & bigotry.”

The driver, James Alex Fields Jr., a 20-year-old who recently moved to Ohio from where he grew up in Kentucky, was charged with second-degree murder of Heyer and other counts. It has also been reported that the Department of Justice and FBI are investigating this incident as a hate crime.

May Heather Heyer rest in peace and our sincere condolences to her family.

Darryl Hunt’s Final Trial

United States Hypocrisy

movie American cruelty and injustice

Darryl Hunt, the 51 year-old advocate for the wrongly convicted who spent nearly two decades behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, was found dead in the vehicle of a friend on March 13 in what police implied was suicide by gunshot. Hunt had been imprisoned for an entire decade after DNA evidence proved he was in no way connected to the crime he was accused of committing.

Hunt had been wrongfully accused and convicted in 1985 for the murder of a 25 year-old white woman named Deborah Sykes in Winston Salem, North Carolina. He was nearly sentenced to death but for the dissent of a lone juror. After his conviction was thrown out in 1989 based on a technicality, Darryl Hunt tried to put the pain of the past behind him by getting married and attempting to move on, only to be dragged back into court to…

Traffic Collision vs. Death by Police Gunfire: which threat is on the rise? (the tragic end of Jonathan Ferrell)

United States Hypocrisy

A photograph Ferrell posted on Twitter showing he and the woman he was soon going to marry. They seem to be gazing at their potentially happy future together, a future that was stolen by police officer Randall Kerrick. A photograph Ferrell posted on his Twitter of himself and the woman he was soon to marry. They seem to be gazing at what will be their happy future together, a future that was stolen by police officer Randall Kerrick.

Johnathan A. Ferrell, the 24-year old former college football player of Tallahassee’s Florida A&M University, had just dropped off one of his friends at his house near the Bradfield Farmer neighborhood of Charlotte-Mecklenberg, North Carolina during the early morning hours of September 14th before turning to drive down Reedy Creek Road. It wasn’t too long afterward at around 2:00 a.m. when, for reasons unknown, Ferrell suddenly lost control of the Toyota Camry he was driving and veered off the road, passing over a ditch and through the trees. This singular-vehicle wreck was so disastrous that investigators would later conclude that, in order for Ferrell to have survived the crash, he…

Bakersfield NAACP Sounds the Alarm After Teenager is Assaulted by Local Police While Riding Bike

United States Hypocrisy

The following email was sent out by the Bakersfield, California chapter of the NAACP calling on Kamala Harris, Jerry Brown, Maxine Waters, David Valadao, Kevin McCarthy, Andy Vidak, Karen Goh, the Bakersfield Police Department, and Lisa Green to hold the police officers who conducted the sadistic attack on 19 year old Tatyana Hargrove accountable for their actions.

 Bakersfield, California

Tatyana Hargrove is a 19 yr old girl who was beaten by Bakersfield police and maliciously attacked by a K9 police dog while riding her bike home. The reason? Police say they mistook her for an adult male suspect but throughout the encounter, Tatyana was never told why she was being arrested. “After they beat me and threw me in the cop car, that’s when they told me,” she said.

Tatyana stopped for a moment while riding her bike when  she saw three police cars and an officer pointing a gun at…

The Brenton Butler Story

Image result for brenton butler

Brenton Butler was charged and subsequently acquitted of the murder of Mary Ann Stephens. The below video demonstrates overzealous prosecutors, corrupt police and victims who make up false identifications just to see someone pay for the murder of their love ones. The video also demonstrates the Zealous Advocacy of Public Defenders.

Ann Finnell, Esq., Butler’s Public Defender stated that:

“The only reason Brenton Butler was even stopped that morning was because he happened to be a black male walking in the neighborhood. Now think about that. That means for every African-American in Jacksonville, Florida – if they happen to be walking down the street, lawfully going about their own business, not doing anything wrong – that they are subject to being stopped and asked to get in a police car and driven away from what they’re doing and subject to being shown to the victim of a crime with the possibility that that victim would identify them under the most suggestive of circumstances, that being that they happen to be sitting in the backseat of a police car. And most victims would think that they wouldn’t be sitting in the backseat of a police car unless they’ve done something wrong, right? So that’s where we are today in Jacksonville, Florida. And I personally find that to be disgusting and reprehensible”.

This was a gross abuse of authority and boils my blood.  This story is eye opening to say the least.  Juan Curtis pleaded guilty to the murder in 2001, yes they actually found out who killed Mrs. Stephens.

Update on Detective Michael Glover

Image result for Detective Michael Glover

Detective Michael Glover (who beat the confession out of 15 year old Butler), was never charged. It was last reported that he was a patrolman and a private security investigator. He maintains that he did not beat Butler, however, the evidence as presented below, demonstrates, by the preponderance of the evidence standard; that any reasonable person would strongly disagree with his statement. In his testimony, he failed to explain, with any level of particularity, why he took Butler to a wooded area, how Butler received the bruising and knots on his face and how Butler received a busted lip. Butler, testified that Glover repeatedly struck him about his upper body, including his face. Interestingly, Glover testified that he was “Just trying to help Butler” into confessing.

Prosecutor Laura Starrett Update 

Laura Starrett

From Public Linkedin 

Laura Starrett, who has been a lawyer since 1980 and is also the overzealous prosecutor who unlawfully proceeded with this kangaroo court trial against Butler, is now an insurance defense lawyer, according to the Florida Bar Associations website for Liberty Mutual’s in-house law firm,”The Law Offices of Amy Warpinski”. It is unclear when Starrett resigned from the State’s Attorney’s office. In my opinion, Starrett should have been disciplined by the Bar for her egregious conduct in this case. In my opinion, she acted against Mr. Butler’s right to a fair trial and her oath to uphold the constitution. As can be seen in the aforementioned video, she was complicit in the cover-up to wrongfully convict Butler for a murder that he did not commit.

It begs the question, in her 30 years of practice, how many other innocent black men/women did she assist in wrongfully convicting? We will probably never know.

In a tortured effort to save face, all while casting Butler into a negative light and ridicule, Starrett gave several interviews regarding her involvement in this case. Below is an excerpt from an interview where she stated that:

The State Attorney’s Office would never use a confession in trial if we believed it had been coerced through physical abuse. Investigators from the State Attorney’s Office examined the circumstances that led to Butler’s confession. As the lead prosecutor in this case, it was, and still is, my firm belief that Butler was not physically harmed by the detectives. At least three people saw him within several hours of his leaving the custody of the homicide detectives in this case. Two of these were not employees of the Sheriff’s Office. None of these people saw any bruises or marks on ButlerMistakes were made in the investigation of this crime. Hopefully, everyone involved in this case will learn from them. These mistakes did not include beatings and physical injuries to Butler.

In a subsequent interview, she is quoted as saying:

“Starrett said she was disappointed”.

”Whenever you don’t have any physical evidence, it’s always a problem and a concern,” she said.

As far as whether anyone else will be arrested, ”We have no reason to believe that the investigation should be reopened,” Starrett said.

Starrett statements flies in the face of the evidence and amounts to a perversion of logic. Even after a lengthy trial, the arrest and conviction of other parties,  she still attempted to cast blame on Butler, somehow. It is uncontroverted that he was beaten, assaulted and wrongfully arrested. It is likewise uncontroverted that she failed to sway a jury that he was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The video, in my opinion, shows exactly how repugnant Starrett’s actions really were.  She was completely complicit. She is disgusting.

Overzealous prosecution refers to someone instituting legal proceedings against a defendant for criminal behavior with the intention to support an excessive enthusiasm for some cause,rather than with any genuine basics for the suit. Unfortunately, overzealous prosecutors enjoy great protections. This was reaffirmed in the Supreme Court of The United States (“SCOTUS”) decision in re: HARRY F. CONNICK, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ET AL., PETITIONERS v. JOHN THOMPSON. Scouts opined that:

Attorneys are trained in the law and equipped with the tools to interpret and apply legal principles, understand constitutional limits, and exercise legal judgment. Before they may enter the profession and receive a law license, all attorneys must graduate from law school or pass a substantive examination; attorneys in the vast majority of jurisdictions must do both. See, e.g., La. State Bar Assn. (LSBA), Articles of Incorporation, La.Rev.Stat. Ann. § 37, ch. 4, App., Art. 14, § 7 (1988 West Supp.) (as amended through 1985). These threshold requirements are designed to ensure that all new attorneys have learned how to find, understand, and apply legal rules. Cf. United States v. Cronic466 U. S. 648658664 (1984) (noting that the presumption “that the lawyer is competent to provide the guiding hand that the defendant [*65] needs” applies even to [**1362] young and inexperienced lawyers in their first jury trial and even when the case is complex).

SCOTUS goes on to State,

The role of a prosecutor is to see that justice is done. Berger v. United States295 U. S. 7888 (1935). “It is as much [a prosecutor’s] duty to refrain from improper methods calculated to produce a wrongful conviction as it is to use every legitimate means to bring about a just one.” Ibid. By their own admission, the prosecutors who tried Thompson’s armed robbery case [**1366] failed to carry out that responsibility.
