Dear Senator & Representative,

There is much to say about what and why I am contacting your office.  Please know that I am contacting your office from the state of IL.  It must take great circumstances for a resident of IL to reach out to those in office in TN.  It is unfortunate that it has come to this, but I am writing you to bring to your attention the criminal corruption that is going on in your state and in particular, Monroe County, TN.  There are egregious and blatant crimes being committed within the judicial, law enforcement and grand juries and to this date not one official seems concerned to address the utter violations of the law.

Specifically, there is a gentleman named Walt Fitzpatrick III who has been jailed without proper due process of law in direct violation of habeas corpus, Article I, Section 9 of our U.S. Constitution as well as the 4th, 5th, 6th & 8th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.  I have been following the situation regarding Mr. Fitzpatrick and evidence to the crimes being committed against a U.S. citizen, a citizen of the state of TN and military veteran.  This is unacceptable!  Not one voice of courage has spoken up on his behalf and on behalf of the rule of law who are in the position of responsibility to do so in the state of TN.  There is an attack being placed upon those who abide by the law and the rights afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution. Those who ignore the law are allowed to continue to do as they please, facing no recourse to this date for their unlawful and criminal acts.

You can easily research and investigate the facts to this and find there is a great case of unlawful misconduct on the behalf of numerous individuals who have falsely accused, arrested and incarcerated Mr. Walt Fitzpatrick and a number of other TN citizens.  As mentioned, there is much to say, but I will leave you with the web links to The Post & Email, which has been at the forefront in investigating, reporting and defending the rights and liberties of Walt Fitzpatrick and others.  It should cause you great concern and even shame that this kind of unlawful activity is going on in the Volunteer State.  Please take the time and have the honor, courage and integrity to see that Walt Fitzpatrick is released and those responsible for this criminal behavior are they themselves held to account. Please know the following links are not exhaustive to this situation, as this has been ongoing since 2009.

There is investigative work on the behalf of Sharon Rondeau and The Post & Email since the inception of these unlawful acts being committed by those who are elected to uphold the law, protect its citizens and support the Constitution.  Investigative work needs to be conducted, and reading these links attached will be a start and an aid to you in pursuing righteousness, truth and justice. I am confident Sharon Rondeau and those who have faithfully and objectively reported this will be willing to assist and be of infinite value.  The Post & Email is doing what is right. I encourage and implore you to follow suit by showing courage and honor; protect the innocent and pursue the prosecution and punishment of those who have truly subverted the rule of law.

Most Respectfully,
Michael Jackson

  1. From here http://www.constitution.org/mil/tn/batathen.htm we learn about the Battle of Athens:

    “On 2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud — forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff’s deputies — by the local political boss. They got no help.

    “These Americans’ absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government. These Americans had a choice. Their state’s Constitution – Article 1, Section 26 – recorded their right to keep and bear arms for the common defense. Few “gun control” laws had been enacted.

    “These Americans were Tennesseeans of McMinn County, located between Chattanooga and Knoxville, in Eastern Tennessee. The two main towns were Athens and Etowah.”

    Some things have not changed in the last 65 years. Will force be required once again to bring the miscreants in eastern Tennessee to justice? Americans are counting on state and local governments to reverse the tide of federal corruption, but the question has to be asked: are the states and the counties up to the task?
