Two Innocent Men Cleared in Separate Murder Cases in Mississippi, 15 Years After Wrongful Conviction

Two Innocent Men Cleared Today in Separate Murder Cases in Mississippi, 15 Years after Wrongful Convictions

Kennedy Brewer, who served time on death row, is first post-conviction DNA exoneration in Mississippi; Levon Brooks’ conviction is thrown out and he is free 

(NOXUBEE COUNTY, MS; February 15, 2008) – Two men who were wrongfully convicted of separate child murders in Noxubee County, Mississippi, were cleared in the crimes at a hearing this morning based on evidence proving their innocence. Kennedy Brewer and Levon Brooks, who are represented by the Innocence Project, have maintained their innocence for 15 years and were joined by more than 100 of their relatives at this morning’s hearing.

New evidence, which includes DNA testing and a confession, has identified the actual perpetrator in both cases, who was arrested last week. At today’s hearing, the case against Brewer was dismissed – making him the first person in Mississippi exonerated through post-conviction DNA testing. Brewer served time on death row. Brooks’ conviction was vacated and he was released from custody; Brooks will be fully exonerated when the indictment against him is dismissed, which the Innocence Project expects in the next few weeks.

“It has taken 15 long years, but Kennedy Brewer and Levon Brooks are finally free. The evidence clearly shows that they are innocent – what’s troubling is that their innocence has been clear for years, but they remained incarcerated while the true perpetrator was at large,” Innocence Project Co-Director Peter Neufeld said. “The system wasn’t just broken in these cases – different elements within the system actually conspired to convict two innocent men of heinous crimes, while the actual perpetrator remained at large. These cases should haunt Mississippi and the nation, and they should lead to a top-to-bottom review of how the state is investigating and prosecuting cases.”

“Bill Cosby Raped Me: Why did it Take 30 Years for Some People to Believe My Story?”: Some of the Real Costs of Hush Money Offers Taken

Bill Cosby raped me. Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story?

Only when a male comedian called Cosby a rapist did the accusation take hold.

In 2004, when Andrea Constand filed a lawsuit against Bill Cosby for sexual assault, her lawyers asked me to testify. Cosby had drugged and raped me, too, I told them. The lawyers said I could testify anonymously as a Jane Doe, but I ardently rejected that idea. My name is not Jane Doe. My name is Barbara Bowman, and I wanted to tell my story in court. In the end, I didn’t have the opportunity to do that, because Cosby settled the suitfor an undisclosed amount of money.

The Real Costs of Hush Money: Meet the Woman JP Morgan Chase Paid One of the Largest “Fines” (Hush Money) to Keep From Talking

Meet the Woman JP Morgan Chase Paid One of the Largest Fines in American History to Keep from Talking

Post Categories: Canada
Matt Taibbi | Sunday, November 9, 2014, 13:58 Beijing

She tried to stay quiet, she really did. But after eight years of keeping a heavy secret, the day came when Alayne Fleischmann couldn’t take it anymore.

“It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street,” she says. “I thought, ‘I can’t sit by any longer.’”

Fleischmann is a tall, thin, quick-witted securities lawyer in her late thirties, with long blond hair, pale-blue eyes and an infectious sense of humor that has survived some very tough times. She’s had to struggle to find work despite some striking skills and qualifications, a common symptom of a not-so-common condition called being a whistle-blower.

The Vampire Squid Strikes Again

Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing.

Back in 2006, as a deal manager at the gigantic bank, Fleischmann first witnessed, then tried to stop, what she describes as “massive criminal securities fraud” in the bank’s mortgage operations.

Thanks to a confidentiality agreement, she’s kept her mouth shut since then. “My closest family and friends don’t know what I’ve been living with,” she says. “Even my brother will only find out for the first time when he sees this interview.”

Six years after the crisis that cratered the global economy, it’s not exactly news that the country’s biggest banks stole on a grand scale. That’s why the more important part of Fleischmann’s story is in the pains Chase and the Justice Department took to silence her.

Quiet Heroism

Introduction and Background to the following public letter by Emma Kim, formerly of HR at Clark College and its contents and allegations were later sworn, unchallenged and unrebutted testimonies and submissions to courts in five different official hearings.

I had no foreknowledge that it would be written or of its content, I had no influence on its content nor knowledge of some of what it revealed (lead to discovery of the existence of a secret file kept on me since I was a whistle-blower on the Watson case that Emma Kim was ordered to send materials to but did not know that is was for an ongoing file of 4900 pages in six binders).

Where Emma by her own account was given early warnings and disparagement about me and told to fear me as being litigious (I have not sued Clark College even once), when they tried to turn her into a snitch, a team player willing to do what she knew to be illegal acts (Emma wound up as Supervisor of HR for a large firm locally),  she became a whistle-blower.

The difference between a snitch and scab versus a whistle-blower and person of conscience is that a snitch and a scab to save his or her own skin (and also for money, ego, revenge, ideology, blood ties) will lie or sell-out anyone, especially those in whom he or she has gained some trust they can betray and trade-upon. The whistle-blower, on the other hand and in direct opposition,  risks his or her own skin, and those of their loved ones, to try to stop corruption, or just not to cross the line of the law, or just to obey their conscience and values, and to try to save the skins of those he or she will never know, be thanked by, and that the whistle-blower may even by hated and sold-out by, as  those whose own cowardice and opportunism were made open, naked, clear and clearly manifested in the courage and selflessness of quiet heroes like Emma Kim who lost her job to keep her soul and keep the law.  http://jimcraven10.wordpress.com/2013/07/17/the-whistle-blower-andversus-the-snitch/ and http://jimcraven10.wordpress.com/2014/05/31/lessons-from-the-animals-similies-metaphors-and-allegories-of-irregular-and-asymmetric-warfare-also-useful-for-whistle-blowers-and-anti-imperialists/

A Thought Experiment and Vantucky-Clark County Corruption

A Thought Experiment and Vantucky-Clark County Corruption

by Jim Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii

Introduction

Suppose as a thought experiment the following: Suppose I were outside say a bank or a park, trying out my new cellphone camera features, and I hear an alarm go off outside a bank or hear a woman’s screaming from the park, see and film someone running from the scene and jumping into a waiting car and speeding off in obvious flight.

Do I yet have knowledge that a crime was committed? No not for sure only indicia of a possible crime and possible evidence of a possible perpetrator. But what if I see a newscast that at precisely that place and time shown on my phone camera, a crime of bank robbery or perhaps rape in the park took place. Now do I have knowledge of the commission of a crime? A reasonable and prudent person would say yes, I have enough to take my tape evidence to law enforcement.

China ‘To Protect Whistle-blowers’ Amid Corruption Fight

China ‘to protect whistle-blowers’ amid corruption fight

This picture taken on 24 September 2013 shows Chinese 100 yuan (RMB) bank notes being counted at a bank in Huaibei, in eastern China's Anhui provinceChina has embarked on an anti-corruption drive since President Xi Jinping took office in 2012

Chinese authorities say whistle-blowers will be protected, amid an ongoing crackdown on corruption.

China’s top prosecuting body said it has, for the first time, laid out rights for those exposing malpractice.

It urged citizens to file reports in a “lawful manner” via official channels and promised a quick response.

China’s President Xi Jinping has prioritised stamping out corruption in the Communist Party and government since he took office in 2012.

The BBC’s Martin Patience in Beijing says the fact that the authorities are trying to reassure the public in this fashion highlights the reluctance many whistle-blowers have about coming forward.

Those reporting official wrongdoing and corruption sometimes face violent reprisals, says our correspondent.

Evidence of Serious Corruption, Political Patronage and Lawlessness: Clark College, Washington State Agencies, and Unions

To the readers:

I could have avoided my termination as professor of economics and got $100,000 on top of it. All I had to do, according to this last minute hush money offer http://jimcraven10.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/hush-money-and-sealed-settlements-to-cover-up-crimes-are-crimes-not-torts-no-need-to-cover-up-what-is-clean-only-what-is-dirty/ presented on the last day before a termination hearing, was: 1) mutual non-disparagement (give up right of freedom of speech and legal duty); 2) never to file any kind of complaint for any reason ever against any Clark College employee or agent of Clark College (and thus drop/repudiate any present and pending ones) ever;

This would have meant turning my back on evidence of serious crimes against the students, the institutions, myself and my own family, against others driven out of Clark College by some of the same player and modus operandi.

Why the hush money offer at the last minute if their case was clean? What legal authority does anyone have to use public monies to permanently immunize from prosecution or complaint any public employee or agent of a public agency preemptively? No need to cover-up or try to silence with hush money what is clean only what is dirty.

This is only the beginning. I messed up in some hires, I took representations of credentials that turned out not to be as represented, and witnessed apparent crimes by some of them that I reported in good-faith and with full accountability (no back room or anonymous allegations) and  will fully expose who, how and the evidence of their unfitness to be in any kind of a classroom. Students are being horribly defrauded and the worst kind of thief, fraud and poseur there is is someone teaching without real credentials and experience and thus stealing some of the future of the students who need competent teaching and meaningful courses to survive in the kind of world that is evolving. Clark College is riddled with frauds and poseurs hired as “team players” by a frightened and despotic administration who like all those without serious credentials in education, have no reason for seek value or even recognize serious credentials in others.

Here is their case and please look at Appendix 4 the Criminal Complaint filed some time ago and presented to the Clark College Board of Trustees to which they had no rebuttal with counter evidence, law or reasoning.

U.S. Navy Unconstitutional Searches of Computers in Washington State for Child Pornography

Yes, the U.S. Navy has searched your computer looking for kiddie porn

Buried  under a small headline in today’s Seattle Times is a story about sensational military and police misconduct.

“’[I]t has become a routine practice for the Navy to conduct surveillance of all the civilian computers in an entire state to see whether any child pornography can be found on them, and then to turn over that information to civilian law enforcement when no military connection exists.’ … Senior 9th Circuit Judge Andrew Kleinfeld found that the case ‘amounts to the military acting as a national police force to investigate civilian law violations by civilians.’”

http://seattletimes.com/html/l…..n1xml.html

If you live in Washington State, your computer has been searched by U.S. Navy criminal investigators for evidence of child pornography; and if they found any, they turned it over to civilian police so you can be prosecuted by civilian authorities — even if you’ve never had anything to do with the Navy.  They did this to everyone in the entire state.  And they did it without probable cause or search warrants.  They did it to me, and they did it to you, and they did it to your mother and your children.

This is so unconstitutional the Ninth Circuit has decided to allow a scumbag convicted of distributing child pornography to walk free, in order to emphasize it’s sooo unconstitutional the government can’t be allowed to get away with it under any circumstances.

More of the Same Corruption With Public Monies at Clark College, Vantucky, Clark County and Beyond

 

SCRIVENER v. CLARK COLLEGE

 

ResetAAFont size:PrintShareThis

 

 

Court of Appeals of Washington,Division 2.

Kathryn SCRIVENER, Appellant, v. CLARK COLLEGE, Respondent.

No. 43051–7–II.

Decided: September 4, 2013

Sue–Del McCulloch, Law Offices of Sue–Del, McCulloch LLC, Portland, OR, for Appellant. Catherine Hendricks, WA Attorney General, Seattle, WA, for Respondent.PUBLISHED OPINION

¶ 1 Kathryn Scrivener, a nonpermanent member of Clark College’s faculty, sought one of two tenure-track positions at the college. When the college hired younger candidates to fill those positions, she sued the college for age discrimination under Washington’s Law Against Discrimination Act1 (WLAD). The trial court dismissed the suit on summary judgment. Because Scrivener does not demonstrate that Clark College’s nondiscriminatory explanations for hiring the other candidates were pretext for discrimination, we affirm.

FACTS

¶ 2 In 1994, Clark College hired the then 42–year–old Scrivener as a part-time English instructor and, beginning in 1999, she signed annual contracts to be a temporary, full-time’ English instructor. Then, in the 2005 academic year, Clark College sought applications for two tenure-track faculty positions, and Scrivener was one of 156 applicants.

¶ 3 Of the 156 applicants, 50 were over 40 years old, and 106 were younger than 40. The screening committee, comprised of five tenured faculty members, reviewed the 152 applications that met the positions’ minimum requirements. The screening committee narrowed the candidate pool and interviewed 13 candidates, including Scrivener. Of these 13 candidates, 7 were over 40 years old and 6 were under 40.

¶ 4 After observing and evaluating the candidates’ teaching demonstrations, the screening committee identified finalists: Geneva Chao, Jill Darley–Vanis, Scott Fisher, and Scrivener. The screening committee forwarded the names, application materials, and candidate evaluations to Clark College President R. Wayne Branch and its Vice President of Instruction, Sylvia Thornburg.2

¶ 5 Branch and Thornburg reviewed the materials and interviewed the four finalists in May 2006, before hiring Chao and Darley–Vanis, who were both under 40 years old. Branch and Thornburg “agreed that of the four finalist[s], Ms. Scrivener was ranked last.” Clerk’s Papers (CP) at 59.

¶ 6 Scrivener sued Clark College under the WLAD, claiming age discrimination. In a summary judgment motion, Clark College attached declarations from Branch, Thornburg, and Clark College Human Resources Associate Director Sue Williams. Branch, who is older than Scrivener, explained that as president, he made the final decision on faculty hiring, but Thornburg also participated and offered input. Branch and Thornburg hired Chao and Darley–Vanis based on the screening committee’s recommendations of the finalists, candidate interviews, reference checks, and the needs of the English department and college as a whole. Branch stated that candidate interviews involved questions relating to how the finalists would meet the college’s goals and functions; at no point did Branch, Thornburg, or the candidates discuss or consider the candidates’ ages.

What is Unclear About 18 USC 4 (Misprision of a Felony) The Duties of Law and Why

What Exactly is Unclear in 18 USC 4  and the Social Imperative For It and Related Statutes?

Current through Pub. L. 113-121. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Throughout all of human history, the few have ruled the many, through a succession of modes of production within and driving wider social formations. Those few who ruled the many, no matter how well armed ruthless they and their minions, they knew they were outnumbered. They also knew well that the masses, when they reach the point where even death is better than what they are forced to endure, can be a powerful and vengeance-driven force with horrible deaths awaiting them and their families.
