More Reported Judicial Tyranny in Tennessee

ANOTHER TENNESSEE STATE PRISON INMATE SPEAKS OUT

by Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III

(Mar. 25, 2011) — On March 23, 2011, I received the following letter from Jim Thunder Quill Wilson, an inmate at the Northeast Correctional Facility in Mountain City, TN.  Mr. Wilson had heard of The Post & Email and me through another inmate, Mr. Dennis Burnett, on whose case we have reported recently and previously here and here.

This was the first letter I received from Mr. Wilson, and I know nothing of Mr. Wilson regarding his circumstances but what’s reported in his first correspondence. I do expect us to hear more. Mr. Wilson offers his help. I’ll write back to accept. I believe him to have some important skills that complement his insights.

The text of the letter reads verbatim:

RE:  Judicial and Jury Foremen Tyranny

Dear Mr. Fitzpatrick,

Hello sir.  I am Jim “Thunder Quill” Wilson III, a Cherokee Irishman from Johnson City, TN.  I too am a Navy vet, 1975-79.  I was a quarter-master and served on the destroyer USS Glover and supply ship U.S.S. Sylvania both ported in Norfolk.

I have read the documents, with great interest, that you sent to Dennis Burnett.  While his situation is trajic, this kind of behavior by officials has become to “norm” for not only the Tennessee Judiciary, but the entire U.S.  It’s commonly known as “Prisoners For Profit” the United States #1 industry.  In fact my case is as bad, if not worse that Mr. Burnett’s.  I’ll get to that later but first I’d like to provide you some info which may assist you in taking down Judge Carroll Ross.  Let me first advise you that along with being a yacht (by seal delivery captain, and land surveyor, I have been a paralegal since 1986 and have worked in Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee.  All of my work since 1979 has been as a sub-contractor.

I reviewed your January 6, 2011 document sent to the (4) locations in Knoxville.  I have enclosed 18 USC 4 for your review.  You should consider putting the (4) offices “on notice” that you have knowledge of the commission of a felony and if they fail to act on your information then they are liable to the provisions described in 18 USC 4.  I have used this code several times with success.

Enclosed is a copy of the TCJ november 6, 2009 letter to me advising me that Judge Gay was indeed sanctioned based on my complaint.  I utilized the Tennessee Human Rights act to trap Gay.  If you’d like to know how I got the tyrant let me know and I’ll lay it out for you.

Another tyrant I took completely down was Judge Steven P. Shea, a Monroe County Florida (Florida Keys) Circuit Judge.  This is another long story like Gays.  Briefly, Shea hit me with indirect criminal court for writing Chief Judge Richard Payne a letter in which I called Payne everything but Judge.  (A good sailor cursing) Shea sentenced me to six months county jail.  I filed a complaint to the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission concerning Shea’s courtroom behavior.  The Marathon Key newspaper did an article on my complaint and within (2) weeks (33) more people including court clerks, baliffs, attorneys, and (4) Judges (all but Payne in Monroe County Filed) Filed complaints against Shea.  Shea was suspended on April 30, 1998 and subsequently removed from the bench on March 23, 2000, found guilty of (11) of the (39) complaints.  See Inquiry Concerning a Judge (Shea) 759 So 2d 631 (2000).

In the meantime I appealled my conviction and after being denied by the state I filed a Federal Habeas Corpus and my conviction was vacated.  I’ve enclosed page (11) of U.S. Magistrate Judge Charlene H. Sorrentino’s report and recommendation.  I believe you’ll like what she said.  The U.S. District Judge Michael Moore agreed and adopted her R+R.  See Wilson v. Moore 193 Fsupp. 2d 1290 (S.D. Fla. 2002)

Mr. Burnett has related to me that Blackwood and Ross tend to run their mouths a lot in open court.  This is frowned upon by the Tennessee Court of the Judiciary.  I suggest you obtain sworn affidavits and transcripts and submit a violation of Judicial Canons complaint to J.S. (Steve) Daniel, Disciplinary Counsel of the TCJ.

Instead of turning this into a book, I’ll reserve an explanation of my 2nd º murder case for a future letter if you care to hear about it.  I did my petition for post conviction relief, filed it, the retained “The Working Law Firm” of Memphis for the proceedings.  I’ve had (2) hearing and the final hearing is scheduled for April 14, 2011.

I urge you to utilize the TCJ and go after the Judges on ethical grounds.  Forget the criminal avenue on these Judges, it just won’t work, trust me, been there and done that in Florida and Tennessee.

It is reassuring to see that there are still some “Born Fighters” in this world.  If I can be of any assistance, please advise.

Best regards

Jim Thunder Quill Wilson

Editor’s Notes:

Judge Carroll Ross presided over various hearings involving both Walter Fitzpatrick and Dennis Burnett in Monroe County, Tennessee.  Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood presided over Fitzpatrick’s December 1, 2010 trial.

18 USC 4 states:

§ 4. Misprision of felony

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Mr. Wilson’s case against Judge Steven P. Shea is found here.

The Tennessee Human Rights Act is described in part here.

The Working Law Firm “focuses on criminal defense.”

The Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission’s website contains a form to file a complaint against a judge.  Pending cases against judges are listed here.

The U.S.S. Glover was launched on April 17, 1965.  The U.S.S. Sylvania was a Mars-class combat stores ship launched on August 10, 1963.

The position of Quartermaster in the U.S. Navy requires knowledge of navigation electronics and instruments as well as the training of helmsmen and lookouts.

    In reading all of this I am surprised some enterprising TV producer hasn’t penned a television series called ” Gangster of the day”.I reckon Sharon Rondeau or Walter Fitzpatrick could write the pilot or in fact,a whole series on judicial corruption.It must be very lucrative since almost every week a new book is published by so called present and past leaders.cheers

    Thank you Sharon for continuing to expose and potentially disarm the injustices that occur in the state of TN.
    TN did not obtain the most corrupt state by the disservice and injustices of just a few and corrupt blood runs very deep.
    The judiciary is tainted, as well as other authorities because they can be. These people believe that as long as no one notices or says anything, they can continue their corrupt activities.
    People are just sick of this, as it is harming real people. Lawless government does not have to be but is very thick in the state of TN for reasons that involve apathy, ignorance, and fear..
    There are Sevier County judges too that snub the Judicial Canons and rules set forth by the supreme court to govern the ethical activities of judicial conduct. It is ludicrous to think that these people who sit on this judicial throne do not have to abide by principal, ethics, and law, yet they themselves sit in a position to sit in judgment of the conduct of others?
    Please keep exposing these activities. You are one at least, who has the guts to state the truth.
    Why require our youth in public schools in TN to take the course of US Government as a graduation requirement from secondary schools, only for them to find out that what they have learned is ideal only, and not what is indeed practiced upon a day to day basis in the real world in TN, and heavens knows where else? Perhaps these youth should be required to take two course requirements, one being how government was to be and operate ideally, and one being how it really is, and offer kids the how to skills to manipulate the injustices that occur.
    Someone said it well once on this forum. TN needs to simply slide off the map and start over.

    Thank you Cmdr. Fitzpatrick and Sharon for continuing to report on the injustices in Tennessee.

    http://www.newschannel5.com/story/14144240/newschannel5-investigates-unlicensed-psychologist

    Under Tennessee law, it’s illegal for a person to present himself or let others present him as a “psychologist” — unless that person is indeed licensed by the state as a psychologist. It’s also illegal for them to provide “counseling, psychoanalysis [or] psychotherapy.”

    Through an attorney, Eisenstein claimed he never hired Casey to do the work of a psychologist.

    Then, in late 2008, documents show that Judge Eisenstein wanted to put Casey on staff using federal money, writing in a memo that Casey had proven himself “an excellent psychologist.” In that same document, the judge noted that Casey had previously “conducted weekly group therapy” for Mental Health Court defendants.

    “You told the Department of Justice that he was an excellent psychologist. What gave you that idea?” NewsChannel 5 Investigates asked.

    Eisenstein didn’t respond.

    His lawyer says the judge later learned that Casey wasn’t licensed, although he felt that Casey could still be useful in other roles. Casey’s contract with the Mental Health Court Foundation — which began in February 2009 — is unclear on his exact duties.

    But more than a year later, the Mental Health Court Foundation’s tax return — sworn to by the judge himself — listed Casey as “staff psychologist.”

    “If you knew that he wasn’t licensed, why would you tell the IRS that he was your staff psychologist?” we asked again.

    Still, the judge had nothing to say.

    From my own experience, I believe this statement is true. It’s all a part of our runaway and lawless government.
