McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy has been named as a criminal by Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, who was just released from Guy’s custody

(Mar. 27, 2014) — 7:10 p.m. EDT – The Post & Email has learned from Atty. Van Irion that Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III has been released from the McMinn County Justice Center on bond.

An eyewitness at the hearing on Monday told The Post & Email that when Irion spoke on Fitzpatrick’s behalf in the courtroom, he said that Fitzpatrick was “arrested as he sat on a bench reading a book in the hallway in the courthouse.”

On Tuesday, March 18, Fitzpatrick went to the McMinn County courthouse in an attempt to submit evidence of crimes to the grand jury which had been blocked by former grand jury foreman Jeff Cunningham, who is an active member of the Tennessee Bar Association and was hand-picked by Judge Amy Reedy.

Fitzpatrick had asked the TBA to immediately disbar Cunningham for serving as foreman when he is also a trained attorney in the field of “criminal law – prosecution.”

On Tuesday, Irion stated that the District Attorney, which The Post & Email presumes was R. Steven Bebb, filed a motion to revoke Fitzpatrick’s bond in Monroe County from a case arising in December 2011 which is pending on appeal.  As of this writing, it is unknown if that motion was granted or some other action was taken.

In a follow-up email, Irion said, “The Monroe county motion will not be heard for at least a couple of weeks. Until then he is free.”

  1. Amen! Perhaps Mr. Fitzpatrick will address those following the Cold-Case-Posse investigation at the press release conference to be held by Sheriff Joe in Phoenix. It would be a good opportunity for him to make an appeal to ‘We the People’ to support him in his self-sacrificing stand in defense of the law.

    Then he should go to Washington, D.C. and speak at the upcoming American Spring protest.

    Also, he should contact Pastor Carl Gallups in order to schedule an on-air interview on the ‘Freedom Friday with Carl Gallups’ radio show.

    After the American Spring ‘We the People’ should hold a rally in support of Walter Fitzpatrick and in support of the fight he has taken on in defense of government of the people in Tennessee.
