AND THE ANSWER WAS “NO!”

(Nov. 21, 2011) — A visitor to Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III at the Monroe County jail in Madisonville, TN yesterday has reported that Assistant Prosecutor Jim Stutts offered Fitzpatrick better accommodations in the annex of the jail if he agreed not to discuss what goes on within it or “make phone calls” while there.
Fitzpatrick has been held in solitary confinement in “Cell 9,” which is normally designated for inmates with possible behavioral issues, since his incarceration on September 23, 2011, with the exception of his relocation to the Loudon County jail for a brief time and several days in the custody of U.S. Marshals prior to the trial of Darren Huff.
We are told that Fitzpatrick declined Stutts’s offer. He is expecting to be released on December 3, 2011, although The Post & Email has been told that Stutts commented that Fitzpatrick’s release on December 3 is a “maybe.”
Fitzpatrick has been vocal about widespread corruption in the Monroe County judiciary, grand jury, and sheriff’s department. A Writ of Habeas Corpus was recently referred by the Monroe County court clerk to the Tennessee Attorney General, who ignored it, as has the Tennessee Supreme Court.
The Post & Email has received a report that a riot occurred recently in Cells 1 and 2 in the jail and that “Several prisoners had their teeth knocked out and most of Cell 1 was tazered [sic].”
A report from a visitor on November 7, 2011 stated that the jail kitchen is infested with rats. The Post & Email contacted Mr. Barry Suttles, the inspector assigned to the Monroe County jail, who said that he inspected the entire facility on an unannounced visit on June 7, 2011 and found “overcrowding” to be the only problem. He stated that individual complaints are not investigated immediately, but rather, considered at the time of the next annual inspection. Mr. Suttles was not free to speak with us until after he checked with his supervisor, Ms. Beth Ashe.
A source close to the efforts to secure Fitzpatrick’s release stated that the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy have been informed of Fitzpatrick’s “unlawful arrest” and the “horrific conditions” within the jail and that the situation is being evaluated by members of the military.
Fitzpatrick had attempted to bring a charge of treason against Barack Hussein Obama to the Monroe County grand jury and inadvertently discovered corruption within that body as well as the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and other government entities.
There has been no answer at the office of Assistant D.A. Jim Stutts’s office at 423-744-2830. Fitzpatrick has stated that Stutts attempted to block his efforts to reach the grand jury with his evidence against Obama. Since then, others have also charged Obama with treason, including at least one elected representative.
