Is Walter Fitzpatrick being held in Blount County, TN? If not, where is he? Is he a political prisoner?

(Oct. 19, 2011) — The following email came in from a witness at the trial of Darren Huff which began on October 18, 2011, in the U.S. District courthouse in Knoxville, TN:

Darren’s trial is about as bizarre as it gets.  A cast of thousands on the prosecution side made up of uniforms and cheap suits.

I only stayed for two prosecution witnesses, both of whom lied, based on my observations from being there on April 20. I was not deposed as Green had his case pretty well put together.

My game was to get him to give Walt the writ package that I had prepared.  He would not, but said Walt had been moved to Blount County and I should see if they would take the paper for Walt.  The slam in that county is in Maryville, between Sweetwater and Knoxville.  So I went down there and they only had a William Fitzpatrick.  So I called the Monroe Sheriff’s jail and they don’t have Walt either.  They have “disappeared” Walt, again.  I left a message with ******* with this information.

I only listened to the trial for a few hours but if I had to guess I would say the jury is bored with it.  They recognize they are trying a non-issue.  It was pretty hard to interface with the prosecution witnesses but I think they recognize that they too are involved in a charade.

I can’t predict when the case may go to the jury as the feds only called two witnesses this morning and didn’t finish either and there were several more waiting outside.

I did talk to the TN Trooper who testified this morning  and his demeanor indicated that he was not too happy with what he had done or said.

This is craziness on a federal level.

Huff and Fitzpatrick were co-defendants at an arraignment hearing on June 28, 2010 in Monroe County, TN, having been charged with “riot” and “intimidation.”  Huff was also arrested on federal firearms charges on April 30, 2010, for which the above-referenced trial was scheduled.  Huff has maintained his innocence throughout and stated that he never intended to “take over the town” when he went to the Madisonville, TN courthouse on April 20, 2010 to hear the proceedings against Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick was arrested on April 1, 2010 after attempting to carry out a citizen’s arrest of the Monroe County grand jury foreman for over-serving his term.

Fitzpatrick later uncovered the fact that the foreman had never been properly appointed nor sworn in.  Evidence of rigged juries, altered court transcripts and dishonesty on the part of judgesand court personnel have also been exposed.

The Knoxville FBI has taken no apparent action on multiple complaints against the criminal syndicate running the Tenth Judicial District in Tennessee.  The “Volunteer State” has earned the reputation of being the most corrupt state in the country.

  1. This article, the long history of corruption in Tennessee, and the government abuse of LCDR Fitzpatrick, help make Montana and Wyoming look better every day. The only possible good side effect is that all of this exposure to daylight of the corruption may actually help cure the problem. But I’m not holding my breath – many southern states have rampant corruption.
