RETIRED NAVY COMMANDER AGAIN JAILED AS A RESULT OF FALSE INDICTMENTS
by Sharon Rondeau
(Sep. 29, 2011) — Several readers of The Post & Email have confirmed that Walter Fitzpatrick has been returned to the Monroe County, TN jail. Fitzpatrick was arrested when he walked out of his sentencing hearing on September 23, 2011 after reading a statement which claimed that the court had no jurisdiction over him.
The phone number to inquire about his well-being and treatment at the jail is 423-442-3911. However, Monroe County sheriff’s deputies have been known to lie. The address where letters can be sent is here.
The Post & Email has contacted Gov. Bill Haslam‘s office, the Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives, State Sen. Stacey Campfield, State Sen. Mae Beavers, and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey’s office. None of them has responded to our request to investigate corruption within the judiciary in Monroe County and greater Tennessee.
We contacted the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts regarding Gary Pettway, who served as a rubber-stamp grand jury foreman for at least 27 years without having been duly appointed or sworn in but received no response.

Hello, Laura, we have uncovered irrefutable proof that the grand jury foreman in Monroe County was never properly appointed nor sworn in: http://www.thepostemail.com/2011/09/20/monroe-county-chief-court-clerk-admits-grand-jury-foreman-of-27-years-illegitimate/
To whom do I report this?
We have already gone to Attorney General Robert E. Cooper, Jr., the Tenth Judicial District office, the state senator and state representative for Monroe County, the U.S. Congressman, John Duncan, and the Tennessee Court of the Judiciary, which is under scrutiny itself by the legislature.
Who in the state of Tennessee will take action?

Just trying to give you updated info on Walt as I try to help him.
Just a few minutes ago I called Gov. Haslam’s office and spoke to one of his staff members, Mandy Mullins.
the# I called was (615)741-2001
I did not approach Governor Haslam through speaking with Mandy as though they knew everything and did not come off to them in an angry tone. (shuts down communication immediately).
I just stated that Walt was a Navy Vet and was being railroaded by authorities in Monroe County and asked her how can we get the Governor’s attention so he would be willing to help Walt.
I gave Mandy your web site address so they could investigate the facts of what is going on and told her it was hosted by Sharon.
I may not be very good at this sort of thing but I at first try to appeal to them as a friendly source.
Another response from a reader:
I called all of the phone numbers you listed. All of the assistants were very nice and said they would relay my message. I also called the number for updates. It was a jail. I was told Com. Fitzpatrick was transferred back to Monroe county. Does the address you listed still apply. Is this someone who will hand deliver messages to him?
This is an abomination. God help us all.
A blogger posted information about the corruption involving LCDR Fitzpatrick which was featured as our Blog of the Day.
From another concerned citizen:
I’m asking all my friends to help — and it doesn’t cost a dime – I’ve been involved with Lt. CDR and I’m aiding in ********************. He is one great American who stands tall defending our Constitution and uncovering corruption. All I ask is that you make a few phone calls –if there is anything you want to know about the CDR. don’t hesitate to call me. We as Americans must stand together or surely our Republic will be no more.
GOD BLESS, and GOD BLESS AMERICA
PS Please pass this on to all those on your e-mail list, together we will take back our country!
Please Help LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III
A citizen of Tennessee reported the following:
I wanted to let you know about the conversation I had with Governor Haslim’s office.
It is obvious that Governor Haslim’s Office is receiving a lot of phone calls about the judicial abuse of LCDR Fitzpatrick. The person that answered the phone said that there is “nothing that the Governor can do”. That, of course, did not sit well with me. I told the woman that there is definitely something that Governor Haslim can do. He can come out against the abuse and can contact the proper department to make sure that the situation is taken care of.
It is important that the people know that the politicians have a direct line to the justices. Unless one has been in a political family, as I was raised in, they will not be aware of this fact.
Please make sure that your readers demand that the governor, or any other politician that they may contact, knows that we will not accept the “it is not my job” excuse. If the governor of a state contacts a county employee things will get done.
As I told both women that I spoke to, “it is a disgrace” to jail someone that put their life on the line for this country simply because he questioned the legitimacy of the current White House resident. I also made sure to let them know that it is an embarrassment to me as a resident of Tennessee.
I demanded that they contact my husband by phone and let us know exactly what they will be doing about this situation.
