WE’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT!
by Molly Pitcher
(Dec. 1, 2010) — Lt. Cmdr. Walter F. Fitzpatrick II is locked up in the Monroe County, Tennessee jail. He has been there for the second time (now over one month). He was unaware of a court hearing scheduled for October 22, which landed him in jail. He and the other inmates have endured horrific conditions while there. In daily phone calls to Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email, he reveals corruption with a capital “C” which has infested Monroe County from the judges, the sheriff and all points in between.
The FBI has an open case on the corruption complaint filed by Walt but to date, they have been slow to act on our phone calls. Walt did report to Sharon that the FBI was seen outside the Monroe County jail by the corrupt Sheriff Bill Bivens, who tried to intimidate the agent into leaving the area.
On Thursday, December 2, we are going to inundate Representative John Duncan Jr.’s office and ask him what he intends to do. He needs to know that the FBI has an open case on the Monroe County corruption and the FBI has indeed paid a visit to the jail. Walt is a constituent in his district. Rep. Duncan needs to do the job he was elected to do and represent the people.
Let’s make this a massive effort tomorrow! Incidentally, Walt was in court today without an attorney, as his second attorney vanished. If you have seen the movie “Walking Tall,” you will understand how Monroe County operates. Patriots, we must help Walt continue to expose this corruption and restore justice to this county in Tennessee. Once done, we can do the same in every county throughout America.

An eyewitness in the courtroom today during the trial of Walter Fitzpatrick gave the following assessment:
Walt looks pitiful, by intention, I guess. It almost brought tears to my eyes to see a LCDR (ret) U. S. Naval Academy graduate stand in public in prison stripes.
What has our jurisprudence system come to?
I left because I got in trouble. I was an engineer by trade and made a sketch of the courtroom to go with my notes. Apparently this was observed by a high resolution video camera and used as an excuse to remove me from the courtroom and be interrogated/intimidated. Two plain clothes SO and one uniform conducted the questioning in a corner of the hallway. I gave them the sketch and asked them what they thought a 130# old man was going to do to their courtroom. So they let me go. And I approached the defendants bench at the noon break so Walt could see that I was there and was accosted by three deputies who stated that I couldn’t speak to the prisoner and would be permanently ejected from the courtroom if I didn’t back away. I didn’t push it. I can do much more for the effort by not being in jail. However there was much less LEO presence in town and the courtroom was open so the flyers and national attention is paying off.
I am still bothered by Walt’s treatment. He is handicaped by his pro se status plus he does not have access to his files from home.
