JUDICIAL CORRUPTION IN ONE STATE AFFECTS ALL AMERICANS
by Sharon Rondeau
Dr. Roth is an accomplished musician, radio and former television show host, and former presidential candidate. She has a Ph.D. in the field of counseling and experienced tremendous personal struggle in the wake of a serious motor vehicle accident some years ago.
For more than four years, The Post & Email has reported on stories of police brutality, trumped-up charges, hand-picked grand jury foremen, rogue judges and a legislature which refuses to rein them in in eastern Tennessee and specifically in the Tenth Judicial District.
The topic for the appearance will be the out-of-control judiciary in Tennessee which threatens to jail anyone who is falsely accused by judicially-controlled grand juries. Specifically, The Post & Email will discuss the recent conviction on two felonies of CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) which criminalized the First Amendment’s provision for citizens to seek redress of grievances from their government.
Also to be discussed is the prosecution of Marvin William Young, who, after discovering that his father’s will had been forged and showing the evidence to the absconder of the estate, was arrested within the hour and falsely charged with “especially aggravated kidnapping” and “aggravated burglary” without any evidence other than statements from the alleged victim and a relative.
Citizens are often framed and witnesses fabricated in the remote part of the state which makes up the Tenth Judicial District of McMinn, Monroe, Polk and Bradley Counties. Grand juries and trial juries perform the judges’ bidding, which keeps people and money flowing through the local jails.
Young made Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper, Jr. aware two years ago that his father’s will had been forged, but after several direct telephone conversations, Cooper’s office stopped accepting his calls and did not pursue a criminal investigation. The Post & Email recently wrote to Cooper and other state officials and is awaiting a response which may never arrive. Local prosecutors and a detective also refused to investigate.
The House and Senate Judiciary Committees in Congress have also been notified about the widespread judicial corruption in Tennessee as it relates to corruption in the federal courts.
On the two felonies, Young could be imprisoned for the rest of his natural life. Fitzpatrick is facing sentencing on August 19 for an unknown period of time by Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood, who was forced off the bench in another case for a cited conflict of interest after refusing to recuse himself according to the Tennessee Judicial Canons. The prosecutor in Fitzpatrick’s case, A. Wayne Carter, signed Young’s indictments. Carter is a part-time church pastor and is seeking “enhanced punishment” for Fitzpatrick because of a conviction from Monroe County after Fitzpatrick removed papers from the courthouse with the intent of showing the FBI that the juries for the coming year were hand-picked by Judge Amy Reedy, something Fitzpatrick had witnessed.
The media in the picturesque, mountainous area of the Volunteer State has shown no interest in The Post & Email’s and other media’s reports on public corruption on the part of prosecutors, judges, and grand jury foremen.
Earlier on Thursday, Roth advised The Post & Email that because of technical difficulties with the internet streaming of the show, listeners should tune in to KSBN.net beginning at 7:00 p.m. PDT/10:00 p.m. EDT.
