Tales of a Speedy, Fair Trial

Today's post is about the new dirty tactics that AUSA Elizabeth Geddes and AUSA Christina Posa want to employ at my upcoming trial in an attempt to deceive the jury into convicting me. On 9/12/11 they submitted a motion to the judge to have certain evidence admitted at trial, while at the same time they ask to have other evidence omitted. This dynamic duo of illusion wants the judge to lay down a foundation of fraud by preventing me from bringing in the facts that the FBI's criminal informants work for the FBI.

They have the audacity to say that if the jury knows that Greg (the Grim Reaper) Scarpa and Frank (Blues Eyes) Sparaco worked for the FBI it would unfairly prejudice the jury against the government. Ha! How about the government just stops employing homicidal maniacs? It is not like this is an isolated incident; this dealing with the Devil is the status quo when it comes to the FBI.

These two lunatics (Scarpa and Sparaco) have killed a school bus full of people combined. That's a fact! Then, they blamed the murders that they committed on innocent people. That's a fact! The FBI chose to employ them as criminal informants. That's a fact! They committed the majority of their murders while they were working for the FBI. That's a fact! Their FBI handler helped them to commit some of these murders. That's a fact! AUSA Geddes and AUSA Posa are trying to use some of these criminal informants' self-serving statements and manufactured evidence to send me to prison for the rest of my life. That's a fact! For the judge to make a decision that bans these facts from the jury's knowledge is to shatter the scales of justice entirely.

Their next witches brew of deceit begins with the original indictment. Again these two, AUSA Geddes and AUSA Posa try to have truthful facts concealed from the jury. In the original indictment, Dino (Hemorrhoids) Calabro was charged with the murder of Carlos Pagan, a security guard who was slain on the job. Joe (Caves) Competiello was charged with the murder of Frank Marasa, allegedly over the slight of a teenaged girl. They say that the defense should not be allowed to reference these charges because Hemorrhoids and Caves have denied them. I deny my charges too, maybe the judge should also bar the jury from hearing my charges.

Geddes and Posa also do not want to let the jury know that the original indictment, like the current one, is a phony and as I suspect was brought into play for the purpose of the arrest. No bail so the torture could begin, the death penalty kick in, and the guilty lineup to save their own ass by sacrificing the innocent. If they did not want the original indictment presented to the jury because it was flawed, then they should have used more care and caution before they ruined peoples lives with a phony indictment. In the meantime, it did happen. It is a fact and the jury should be aware of all of the FACTS; not the uncharged crimes that are little more than fairytales that they cajoled the judge into allowing at trial.

If the judge rules in favor of these prosecutors, the Halls of Justice will crumble. For these two, AUSA Geddes and AUSA Posa, to rely on sympathetic rulings and not facts to win cases is a disgrace. They are quickly becoming the shame of the Justice Department. May they just as quickly change course and bring honor to all the reputations involved. I hope so, all they must do is allow the facts to decide the case instead of trickery. I am not afraid of the true facts so why are they?

On a different note, as I sit in my cell writing this post I am listening to Wins news on the radio. Iran just granted bail for two Americans. I am happy for them and I am happy for their loved ones. That a nation of no laws, run by fanatics, has the compassion to give two of my countrymen bail is amazing. I must ask after more than three years, with no trial, where is my bail AUSA Geddes or Posa?? Forget that, I already know; the bleeding of the bull continues.

"To be neutral in a situation of injustice is to have chosen sides already." -Desmond Tutu

"It goes without saying that injustice is a commonplace. But this [does] not mean that one could be complacent... one must NEVER, in one's own life, accept these injustices as commonplace but must fight them with all one's strength. This fight begins in the heart." -James Baldwin "Notes of a Native Son"

"This is a moral universe, which means that despite all the evidence that seems to be to the contrary, there is no way that evil and injustice and oppression and lies can have the last word... that is what has upheld the morale of our people, to know that in the end good will prevail." -Desmond Tutu

I refrained from writing about this incident for a few weeks because my passion was too strong and I could not trust myself to give an impartial account of the events. After many troubled days I am now calm enough to relay the facts to my readers.

This post is about the vicious attack on an old man by some sadistic correctional officers during the panic and confusion of New York's recent earthquake. Do earthquakes (like hurricanes) even have names? I don't think so but let's name this one. We will call it CHAOS because that is exactly what it caused here at M.D.C. Brooklyn. I don't know if it is because we are on the east coast and earthquakes are common on the west coast... so no one on east coast was prepared. Whatever!

It was evident that no inmate, no correctional officer (or most brass) knew what to do nor were we prepared to do it. The fear of the men was readily displayed on their faces in the way that they clung to any object that seemed secure. Some of the guys are hardened criminals and won't show fear at the sight of Satan but on CHAOS day they shit their pants. So when the cell block was invaded by scores of just as terrified officers it really was chaotic. We were hearing of evacuations and aftershocks. The stench of fear was everywhere. The gleam of madness was in everyone's eyes. Then to be told that we must be locked in our cells was like the smell of fire to wild animals. The men refused.

They said we were the only floor to create a problem, but we are on the 8th floor and we felt it more than the lower floors. The height affects the sway the way the treetop moves more than the roots in a strong wind. The 8th floor was like a rowboat in a rough sea. No one wanted to die trapped in their cells.

It was a long few minutes before a quick-thinking Assistant Warden assured us that if we returned to our cells we would not be locked in. He understood what we were displaying was not defiance--IT WAS FEAR! So his wiser head prevailed and we returned to our cells.

So when on the following day I heard that the other block on the 8th floor was locked down, I was a little surprised. Then when I heard that a 77-year-old man was shot with a riot gun (shoots "non-lethal bullets" meant to be used for long range hits to suppress rioting which can cause serious injury and sometimes death) 5 times at close range in the back, once in the wrist, and had a tear gas cannister explode at his feet; I was astonished! Why had this happened? How could this happen? Where was the Assistant Warden who had retained control of my cell block? Was he even there? Who gave the order to fire? Was it an accident? Was the old man the target?

For a 77-year-old man to be a threat when he is facing you is questionable but when his back is to you he cannot be a threat! So for this extreme coward empowered by the federal government, the gun, and the gray hair of his grandfatherly target---to pump not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE bullets into this old man's back is repugnant and vile. For this thug to wear a badge and work for the government is perverse.

This is the kind of psychotic behavior displayed by the cops in New Orleans who executed innocent men in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. This is the type of behavior that was displayed at the riots of Attica prison. This is the type of behavior that was on display at Kent State. It is the type of behavior glorified in the autocratic countries around the world. This is the behavior that is rampant in our justice system; the "might makes right" attitude of the government, politicians, judges, prosecutors, and their underlings. They do oppressive and unjust things because they are intoxicated by the wine of power and drunk on the total control of their citizens. They will continue to do so until they are stopped by the will of the people and our American way.

How ironic that the 77-year-old Great-Grandfather target was Andrew Russo; an Italian American who has been a target of the federal government for over 50 years. So you decide... target or accident?

For all of you who are truly concerned I want you to know that after being locked in his cell suffering from the wounds that the rubber bullets left; Mr. Russo was finally taken to an outside hospital the next day and seems to be recovering from the vicious attack.
