BUT HOW MANY ARE “LAW ENFORCEMENT?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 19, 2014) — The Post & Email received a report from an individual on the way to the McMinn County courthouse on Tuesday morning for the sentencing hearing for CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) stating that the courthouse is “loaded with people.”
While not being an eyewitness, the individual received the report from someone there who reported a large police presence.
Last week, a reader of The Post & Email contacted McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy to ask if any special security would be put in place for Tuesday, to which he was told “no.”
“I don’t trust him,” the reader told The Post & Email at the time.
On April 20, 2010, when Fitzpatrick supporters attempted to attend a hearing in another case in nearby Monroe County, militarized sheriffs’ deputies with assault rifles greeted them at the entrance to the courthouse and barred their entry. Many were told, “If you don’t have business here, you can’t come in.”
The large deployment of police officers, sheriffs’ deputies, highway patrolmen, FBI and TBI agents on April 20 was reportedly summoned by William L. Bryan, founder of The Fogbow, a group which has put out propaganda with the intent of maintaining Barack Hussein Obama, who is said to be using a false identity, in the Oval Office.
A FOIA request made to the FBI in March 2012 for documents on the events of April 20, 2010 was first responded to by the claim that no responsive records existed, then, upon appeal, that the documents existed but could not be released because of “privacy” concerns.
Fitzpatrick is being sentenced for having approached the McMinn County grand jury with evidence of crimes committed by judges, prosecutors, Guy, and the grand jury foreman. Instead, the grand jury, headed by a new foreman appointed by Judge Amy Reedy just minutes before, indicted Fitzpatrick on the crimes of aggravated perjury, extortion, stalking and harassment.
No specifics were provided in the Bill of Particulars by deputy prosecutor A. Wayne Carter, but the case went to trial anyway. A jury of seven men and five women, none of whom have responded to invitations from The Post & Email to speak about their experiences on the jury, convicted Fitzpatrick on the perjury and extortion charges.
Grand juries and trial juries are routinely fixed in Tennessee so that vindictive judges and prosecutors can assure that defendants are found guilty, or, in the case of political cronies, exonerated before they go to trial.
Professional filmmaker William F. Fain expects to take complete footage of the sentencing hearing as Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood presides. The footage will be made into an informational video to illustrate the “dictatorship of the judiciary” in Tennessee, as Fitzpatrick has described it.
In the fall of 2009, Fitzpatrick discovered that grand juries were commandeered by a judicially-appointed foreman who was permitted to serve for years or decades consecutively. Blackwood and virtually every other criminal court judge in the state have appointed such foremen, who have wielded undue influence on grand juries which, according to the Fifth Amendment, are tasked with evaluating evidence as to whether or not probable cause exists that a crime was committed.
Guy was re-elected for a second four-year term as McMinn County Sheriff on August 7.
On Monday, a prayer breakfast and barbecue were held to honor Fitzpatrick for upholding his oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution by exposing judicial corruption in the Tenth Judicial District, which includes McMinn, Monroe, Polk and Bradley Counties, over the last five years. Film footage was taken of Fitzpatrick; his attorney, Van Irion, who claimed that the district had launched a “vindictive prosecution” of his client; and Marvin William Young, who is being falsely prosecuted on two felony charges after demonstrating that his father’s will was forged and the estate absconded, possibly involving murder.
Young’s next hearing is August 25. Carter has filed a motion to revoke Young’s bond because Young asked for a restraining order against Larry David Godwin, who now illegally possesses Young’s father’s estate and is rapidly selling off the assets.
Tenth Judicial District chief prosecutor Steve Crump has been made aware of the criminality which his predecessor, R. Steven Bebb, refused to investigate. Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens, who was not re-elected on August 7, is also involved at a minimum by failing to investigate.
Although Fitzpatrick and others have met with FBI agents on a number of occasions to describe the violations of law and civil rights carried out in Tennessee courtrooms, sheriffs’ departments and within the grand juries, the FBI has failed to launch an investigation to the best of the public’s knowledge.
The corruption extends to Washington, DC, as Tennessee’s congressional delegation has also refused to take action on the systemic wrongdoing against its citizens.
Fitzpatrick’s sentencing hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. EDT. Last week, Irion filed motions asking for a new trial, for the
