Walter Fitzpatrick has retained Legal Counsel

“LET’S USE THIS AS A RALLYING POINT”

by Sharon Rondeau

The Greek goddess Themis was a symbol of "divine justice"

(Nov. 19, 2010) — In a telephone call this evening, Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III revealed that he has retained a defense attorney for the charges brought against him in Monroe County, TN.

Mr. Fitzpatrick was noticeably animated and stated, “You’ve said that people don’t know what to do, and that they’ve asked what they can do. They can give to this cause, to uphold the Constitution. This is a huge opportunity for veterans, patriot groups, and others. Let’s use this as a rallying point to unify people.”

Fitzpatrick added that he would expound on the information he has been relaying from the Monroe County detention facility upon his release., the date of which was not available this evening.

The Post & Email launched the Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III Legal Defense Fund on November 2, 2010, which to date has collected about $2,200. Several hundred dollars have been spent on collect phone calls so that Mr. Fitzpatrick could communicate with The Post & Email, during which time he has reported developments in the murder case of Mr. Jim Miller as well as a sudden improvement in conditions at the Monroe County jail.

Mr. Fitzpatrick reported that the cost to defend the case and expose the corruption within Monroe County is expected to cost $35,000.

There is a special Paypal donation button for the fund on the middle-right side of our home page under the “World” news section. If you prefer to send a check, please make it out to:

and include “The Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III Legal Defense Fund” on the memo line.

We thank all who have already given generously.

Fitzpatrick was charged with “riot,” “intimidation,” and four other counts stemming from an April 1, 2010 incident wherein he attempted a citizen’s arrest of the Monroe County grand jury foreman, who has been serving in that capacity for 20 years contrary to Tennessee Code.

Fitzpatrick has claimed that there is no case against him because the grand jury is tainted.

On October 27, Fitzpatrick’s home was broken into by four Monroe County sheriff’s deputies, and he was tasered, struck on the head and face, and arrested for allegedly failing to appear at an October 22 hearing concerning his former attorney, Stephen Pidgeon. To our knowledge, Mr. Pidgeon has not been heard from publicly since that time, and a phone call made to his office several weeks ago was not returned.

When the arrest warrant was issued, local newspapers announced it before Fitzpatrick was himself aware of its existence. The warrant was not signed by a judge.

Since Fitzpatrick’s incarceration, other Monroe County residents have come forward to tell their stories of false charges, police brutality, substandard conditions within the jail as well as having been deprived of necessary medications while incarcerated.

    We saw earlier that Stutts offered a pretty decent deal to Darren Huff. Has Walter’s new counsel been working on a similar deal? I am sure Walter would refuse any deal but his attorney could gauge the confidence of the prosecution in their case by pretending to negotiate.

    I am receiving reports that the new counsel has yet to register with the court. This is cutting it close but I expect tomorrow would be OK. Judge Blackwood might not take kindly to gamesmanship, however. I hope they know what they are doing. For those waiting on the FBI to come in to help I have two words: Holder and Obama. Need I say more.

    Well Jan,This is total supposition aka NOT grounded in fact but I firmly believe the
    rift between Mr.Fitzpatrick and Mr.Pidgeon was that Pidgeon was co-opted in offering Walt a deal.This maybe was the cause of the “splitting of the sheets” Mr.Fitzpatrick strikes me as a man,that doesn’t “do deals” .

    Would it be a good idea to contact Amnesty International on behalf of General Fitzpatrick and Huff? they handle a bunch of stuff about wrongly accused political prisoners which is exactly what these brave men are!!!

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: It’s already been done, but it doesn’t hurt to have another voice added to the complaint.

    yeah, I would love to donate but it would be good to know who the lawyer is. Taitz? Most of her cases are finished but she still has the fight in her and it certainly the most courageous lawyeress fighting for just ice today…That Pidgeon episode left a bad taste in my mouth!

    E.D.

    No, not Fitzpatrick.. Brenna meant the
    attorney he has representing him now.

    I am sure he will be extremely
    careful about who is his lawyer.

    I guess Pidgeon *spelling? ..
    vanished from the scene.

    $35,000 to defend liberty is a bargain. If Monroe county is cleansed of its corruption, that process will repeat itself throughout that state as the links in that corruption do run to the capital of TN and from there to the US DoJ. Ah yes, Eric the oathbuster Holder. Who’d think he might have a hand in shutting down a grand jury contemplating a treason charge against his appointer and protector, the similarly-situated Obama? How well corruption defends its high perch when it controls the application of law. I’ve donated and will continue to donate.

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Thank you, sir; I recall you have been very generous to The Post & Email and to Mr. Fitzpatrick’s legal defense fund. Your statement is very encouraging. If everyone reading this could recruit two people to give $2.00 each and they all did the same, we’d be there!

  7. Papoose   Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 2:57 PM

    Walt, we’re with you. We Have SCOTUS on 11/23/10 with Kerchner and Apuzzo; we have Lakin on 12/14/10; we have our Leavenworth 10 heroes…so much to do so little time.

    God love ya, man, patriot, hero. Thank you for your fortitude, persistence and unrelenting Courage. Thinking of you everyday. hour by hour. We will survive this. We will win. It is right. It is just. Saluting you, Sir and all those surrounding you caught in this sticky web of deceit.

    The Medal of Freedom will be yours one day.

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: I will read this to Mr. Fitzpatrick the next time he calls. Thank you.

    I will consider donating more funds to his defense… but who is the attorney representing him? With all Walt has gone through, it would be a shame if its an attorney working for the other side.

    Mrs. Rondeau,

    This is a very exciting development! Maybe now Walt can get out on bond!
    I know you are a very busy person, trying to help Walt and expose all of this horrible corruption in Monroe County. You mentioned you had finally received the audio of Walt’s hearing before Judge Dixon on Wednesday. I know you are busy with these other things, so instead of you transcribing it, which is very time consuming, maybe you could just post it as a mp3 and some of us could transcribe it for you. We would really like to help you carry this burden as much as possible. Thanks, SM.

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Yes, I’m evaluating which way would be faster. Don’t worry; it’s coming. And I appreciate the offer of help…that is always needed!

    Who which person is? Walt Fitzpatrick?? He is so far from crooked it’s pathetic; he personifies the exact opposite. A man of iron character, will and spirit, he has risked his personal freedom many times over in his fight to expose corruption, fraud and malfeasance in both military and municipal arenas.

  11. Brenna   Saturday, November 20, 2010 at 7:01 PM

    Sharon- do we know who this person is? Are they crooked, too?
