Trayvon Martin:

without comments

The Black Community’s Next Move

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

On this past Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department only confirmed the prophecy of our ancestors. The U.S. Justice Department would continue to give great deference to the Compromise of 1877. This decision would come two days before Trayvon Martin’s birthday. This is the modus operandi of white supremacy.

On this past Monday, I had ominously published an article entitled, “An Ombudsman for Black and Latino Children.” They are children without legal representatives and they are disenfranchised politically. Their parents are also disenfranchised and they also lack access to the courts.

Without factoring in the “race calculus,” they are the victims of double jeopardy which is in violation of the Fifth Amendment. Our children need HELP. Among other things, Black and Latino children in New York are subject to the nation’s most repressive legislation. This is of no concern to Black and Latino selected officials.

The United States is unable to erase slavery from its blackboard. Justice would require compensation. This is an innate element of justice and an indispensable element of American jurisprudence. Without justice there should be no peace. Justice and peace should share a symbiotic relationship.

The “debt” is not subject to erasure without compensation. Until the “debt” has been satisfied, its Black creditors, in the meantime, must be placed in protective custody. Any harm gives rise to double indemnity. The parents of Black children are subject to immeasurable pain and suffering coupled with the lack of compensation for wrongful deaths.

No court in the United States should be unfamiliar with the legal concept of judicial notice. These are facts which do not need to be proven. Perennial racism is one of those facts. Res ipsa loquitor should apply to civil rights violations. This eases the element of proof.

The U.S. Justice Department is hypocritical when it claims that a civil rights prosecution requires a high-level of proof. America was born out of slavery and the “badges of slavery” still thrive. This is proof that descendants of enslaved Africans are “constitutional squatters.”

“Ambulance chasers” and the “silver rites” movement are not designed to deliver justice. Descendants of enslaved Africans have bitten the bullet and they are accepting hush money instead of justice. Howard Beach and Bensonhurst, as legal models, were of no moment to them.

“Ambulance chasers” have also replaced civil rights attorneys and the “silver rites” movement has replaced the civil rights movement to the consternation of our revered ancestors who sacrificed their lives to prevent history from repeating itself. The lesson to be learned from State v. Zimmerman is that an elected prosecutor is not a special prosecutor.

Fannie Lou Hamer gave us a delivery system for political science. Rosa Parks concurred. I founded the Freedom Party in 1994. It has never attracted a single, part-time volunteer or a seasonal volunteer. Thus, political education is not a high priority in the Black community.

With these indifferent persons tightly holding the directionless, political reigns of the Freedom Party, no effort is being made to resist the assault on our children. March 7, 2015 will be, to the day, 158 years after Dred Scott and, fifty years, to the day, after “Bloody Sunday 1965″ in Selma, AL.

The outrage against the protracted, inhumane and unprecedented assault against our children should reach a crescendo by March 7, 2015 but this will not happen without a well-developed plan to sustain the struggle under the rubric of Black Lives Matter.

The Freedom Party should be in its vanguard. It is the purpose of a political party. This is a class-action. There are no “innocent bystanders.” While a victim will naturally seek personal justice, the class must seek protective justice. The class will need a human-civil rights attorney to secure class relief. Freedom is not free and war is full-time.

Is a Passport to George Zimmerman a Fish Tale?

No one is taking me seriously when I assert that you must be bilingual to communicate with white supremacists: “legalese” and “military science.” It is not enough to be fluent in pig Latin. White supremacists may “hear” you but they only understand “legalese” and “military science.” This is a big problem for Blacks. Leading Blacks, at best, only speak “broken English.”

For white supremacists, it is enough that Blacks are unable to speak “military science.” The U.S. Justice Department announced, on this past Tuesday, that only insufficient evidence is available to convict George Zimmerman on civil rights violations for the death of Trayvon Martin. Therefore, Zimmerman should be exempt from a criminal accusation.

This is like “putting the cart before the horse.” A criminal prosecution does not start with a conviction. It starts with an indictment as is authorized under the Fifth Amendment. The last stage in the criminal process is a criminal conviction, if convicted, with the option for a criminal defendant to file post-conviction motions.

You will never hear a prosecuting attorney and a defense attorney arguing on CNN or MSNBC that a prosecutor is never able to indict a ham sandwich. Attorneys are not supposed to argue the truth. They are supposed to argue either side of the “facts.” Confrontation is supposed to deliver the truth. A jury announces the verdict.

The issue is whether probable cause exists under the Fourth Amendment to satisfy an arrest of Zimmerman. Probable cause does not mean that sufficient evidence exists to warrant a conviction but criminal defendants are arrested and prosecuted because it is more likely than not that a criminal defendant perpetrated a crime.

Self-defense in a subsequent civil rights prosecution is not subject to the doctrine of res judicata. Zimmerman is not denying that he killed Trayvon Martin. Only a petit jury can decide that a tribunal can leap from an accusation to a conclusion. The prosecutor is only unable to pursue an appeal.

There is no such thing as a pro bono defense. In a protracted struggle, dollars must be recycled to sustain it. Everyone is aware of this fact except descendants of enslaved Africans who are unwilling to invest in freedom. Stated differently, you must pay to play.

Other ethnic groups give great deference to ethics. For years, the Freedom Party has been working on a working definition for “ethics” which is racial glue so that we can stick together. This effort is still a “work-in-progress.” For this reason, politics is currently beyond our reach.

It is a poor rat that does not have its own hole. I invested over One Million Dollars in UAM, Freedom Party and Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls so that we could have a hole. All members could ride for free. Any organization must have a headquarters. Expenses accompany a headquarters.

Recycled dollars should have allowed for me to purchase a law library for Blacks if we were not social parasites. Someone is the Black community has to speak “legalese.” The business records for UAM are filed and available for public inspection in the Brooklyn Civil Court.

If I had not come to New York and had not invested substantially in the freedom of Blacks for more than thirty years, there would have been no legal or civil rights victories in New York while I was practicing law in addition to counseling Blacks.

The international slave trade only came into fruition because of investors. Accounting was the accelerant and its code of ethics. This is why the “business record exception” to the hearsay rule is at the centerpiece of American jurisprudence. Business records ensure reliability.

The claim that the Justice Department lacks the proof to secure an indictment of Zimmerman is “fishy.” It should have, in its possession, all of its own investigatory files, Florida’s investigatory files and a murder trial. Florida, on the other hand, was able to secure an indictment and trial only after a grand jury investigation but the United States lacks overwhelming evidence to simply indict and arrest Zimmerman.

It is up to a federal petit jury to convict Zimmerman. If insufficient evidence had existed to indict him, this would be a call for a federal judge under Rule 12 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure to decide in a pre-trial motion. Any adverse ruling by the federal judge can be taken upstairs without suffering legal sanctions. The U.S. Justice Department is exceeding its prosecutorial authority and usurping judicial authority.

I knew that the fight for justice for Trayvon Martin was beyond the ken of the “silver rites” movement. It is sad that I had to use personal funds for all Blacks to retain any semblance of respectability for the race. Every ethnic group has its own reputation. Our reputation is near the bottom of the totem pole. Chief Justice Roger Taney defined the class in Dred Scott on March 7, 1857. What will Blacks be doing on March 7, 2015?

The Estate of Ramarley Graham and “Hush Money”

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

On February 1, 2015, I made a cameo appearance on the “Michael Coard Show” in Philadelphia. The topic was supposed to be People v. Orta and the chokehold death of Eric Garner which should be a work-in-progress and a matter of legislative reform. There has been a possible setback with the offer of “hush money” to the Graham family. Justice would have required the prosecution of the rogue cop.

The problem with hush money is that it is only offered to the victim and not to the target. All Blacks are potentially subject to the treatment that was administered to Ramarley Graham. The New York Police Department refuses to honor any rights under the Fourth Amendment.

The class subsequently engaged in protests which “inflated’ the damages but the target has been misguided into believing that it is not eligible for compensation. The class has been short-changed. “Hush Money” has a tendency to seal Black lips. Any and every class action should embrace “Race First.”

While the victim is entitled to personal justice, the class is entitled to protective justice. The Freedom Party is the appropriate delivery system for protective justice. A goal in 2015 should be to sponsor a candidate under the banner of the Freedom Party for Bronx district attorney who will indict the rogue cop. The Democratic Party is unwilling to take this action on behalf of descendants of enslaved Africans.

Students should be encouraged to attend the February 5 oral arguments on Staten Island for the release of the secret proceedings of the grand jury panel that refused to indict Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo of the NYPD in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Public officials and the National Action Network should share their amicus curiae briefs, which they should have prepared, with the students. Copies of the U.S. Constitution should be given to students of the Claire Muhammad School. I had advised them on January 22, 2015 to be in possession of copies of the U.S. Constitution when they attend the courthouse in Staten Island.

These students should be taught the difference between personal justice and preventive justice in addition to explaining to them the difference between Scott v. Sandford and Plessy v. Ferguson and the background and legal basis for both Supreme Court decisions which fit within both Black history and legal history.

I will be on radio in Philadelphia on 900AM WURD in Philadelphia on this Wednesday, February 4 at noontime to discuss both People v. Orta and the chokehold death of Eric Garner on Staten Island. The broadcast will be streaming at www.900amwurd.com.

In the meantime, it is incumbent for us to demand legal representation on Staten Island on Thursday, February 5, 2015. Blacks should be heard through amicus curiae briefs. These briefs can be conditions precedent to legislative reform. It is not unusual for legislators to file amicus curiae briefs.

Legal decorum will be my topic for UAM Weekly forum on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. at the Brooklyn Christian Center. I will also dissect the issues in CPW Towers LLC v. Maddox which will be heard on next Monday, February 9, at 9:30 a.m. in Manhattan Housing Court.

On Thursday, February 5, at 5:00 p.m., I will discuss “Military Science in the Courtroom” at Newark Public Library, 5 Washington St., Newark, NJ, This topic should be of special interest to lawyers and politicians. The discussion will emphasize the import of strategy and tactics in courtrooms and legislative halls.

“Selma”

without comments

SONY DSC

 

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)
The media is reporting that business leaders are giving free tickets to “Selma” to more than 75,000 young people in schools from the seventh to the ninth grades. “Beware of Greeks Bearing Gifts.” A fallacy in history can affect young people for the rest of their lives.

To be sure, Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. did have a serious impact on social legislation by reviving the Civil Rights Act of 1875 which the U.S. Supreme Court had overturned in Civil Rights Cases (1883) because, according to the “High Court,” this legislation violated the Fourteenth Amendment. This decision revived Dred Scott and was a forerunner to Plessy v. Ferguson.

Hon. Elijah Muhammad said it best: “If they will not treat you right, why do you believe that they will teach you right?” This was the basis for the Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls. Summers should be used for Blacks to deprogram their children from compulsory attendance laws.

It is true that both Malcolm X and Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. visited Selma, Alabama but Dr. King was not in Selma on “Bloody Sunday.” Malcolm X and Dr. King were like two freight trains. They were running on different tracks, however. Dr. King was on a social track. Malcolm X was on a political track.

Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls started in 1994 after the “Central Park 7.” It had many goals including introducing our children to Black history and legal history. The setting was the Underground Railroad in the Catskill Mountains. Both the birthplace of Sojourner Truth in Ulster County and the home of Harriet Tubman in Auburn, NY were visited and studied.

Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls came to an end after Hurricane Sandy. It was a treasure and it must be revived. Doreen Richardson, the landlord, was decapitated amid the hurricane. It will require community support to start again. A dinner-dance will occur on January 17, 2015 at the historic Cotton Club. Each of the 150 seats must be occupied by investors in Black youth.

These persons are committed to the future of our children. Some white supremacists would love for our children to be an “endangered species.” We bring them into the world and “white paternalism” seizes them for big paydays. They are gifted and reap big, financial benefits for business investors.

Black youth have transformed both sports and arts and entertainment. In the 1950’s, for example, college sports was lackluster. Now, it has ESPN and other sporting networks are getting into the game. In the 1950’s Woody Hayes, coach of football at Ohio State, made $40,000 annually. Now, Urban Meyer, football coach of “The Ohio State” makes $4,000,000 annually, thanks to our children.

White children either lack those gifts or they can pursue educational interests. These gifts are exported throughout the world. Black culture is America’s biggest export. The promise for Black guardians is a new home. This is a rip-off. Revenues far exceed expenses.

“Revival Week 2015″ is chock full of events which started with a tribute to Dr. John Henrik Clarke, the “Master Teacher” and will end with Alton Maddox reappearing in a Staten Island courtroom after a hiatus of twenty-five years. “Justice” and not hush money for Eric Garner has been derailed. Rogue cops are looking for an exit. Maddox intends to set the record straight.

I will be personally acknowledging and thanking those investors who have purchased at least one ticket to the dinner-dance on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at the historic Cotton Club. These persons are investing in the future of our children, our most precious and valuable assets. We must stop others from reaping the benefits of our labor.

Droves of young people should be at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn on January 14, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. to listen to Professor Griff and to listen to my discussion of “Selma” which is based on my civil rights activities in the South and my study of legislative history which must form the basis for Black Agenda 2015.

A True Interpretation of Dred Scott

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War)

If a person’s ultimate destination is either Heaven or Paradise, the Bible or the Koran provide good source materials. According to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, these sources have no moment in understanding and surviving white supremacy. The U.S. Constitution gives great deference to “separation of church and state.”

The seminal, source materials for understanding white supremacy can be found in Scott v. Sandford, 19 How. (60 U.S.) 393 (1857) which established the class action. Thus, a law library is more important than a public library. Blacks who sought to pass for white initiated Plessy v. Ferguson to embrace the one-drop rule as an exception to Scott v. Sandford. Ferguson is still a problem.

In any systematic killing of human beings in the United States and because of the Compromise of 1877, it is important to consult the UN Charter. The systematic killing of human beings under the Compromise of 1877 may amount to a state prosecution in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

Compare the federal prosecution of Lemrick Nelson for the murder of Yankel Rosenbaum with the state acquittal of Nelson for murder and the inapplicability of the Double Jeopardy Clause under the Fifth Amendment. Jews were not in the mix of needing constitutional protections.

United African Movement is fortunate to host Dick Gregory this Tuesday evening to discuss the police killings of two members of the NYPD in Brooklyn. I am fortunate to be able to place these killings in an international context and to explain my letter to President Barack Obama on the first day of Kwanzaa which is “Unity.”

The key word is “investment” which spawned the international slave trade. Investment is like the gross national product. It is an economic indicator of the nation’s economic health. Investors are important. Donors only play a secondary role. Social parasites are a drain on the health of a race.

Dred Scott is important not because of Chief Justice Roger Taney’s discussion of rights unavailable to all persons of African ancestry but because of his certification of all persons of African ancestry as a class before the enactment of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Taney was discussing the legitimacy of all actions taken against a universal class of Africans. In short, Taney was, unwittingly, uniting all persons of African ancestry.

Some Blacks took offense to Taney placing all Blacks under one “banner.” According to them, there must be an undivided allegiance between Blacks and whites. This definition certified the definition of a “house Negro.” Malcolm X popularized it.

In 2014, Mayor William de Blasio is being attacked for publicly declaring his allegiance to his son, Dante de Blasio. Jungle fever” is still frowned on by white supremacists. Many of them conduct slave patrols of the streets of New York City while Blacks are financing them to their own detriment. This answers the current plight of Mayor William de Blasio.

Any discussion of any topic by Dick Gregory is always a historic discussion. They make us think. Dick Gregory will be appearing at the historic Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (Bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn on this TUESDAY, December 30, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

I was the guest on WOH-Radio in Connecticut this past Tuesday. The topic was “Critical Thinking 2015.” It was a wide-ranging interview from “soup to nuts.” Everyone will need to be fully informed with fully-charged batteries to survive the upcoming onslaught. Deception is a staple of military warfare. Read Patrick Lynch’s lips (PBA).

This is a class action. Fueled by “hush money,” ambulance chaser are like slave catchers. “All that glitters is not gold.” There are no innocent bystanders in a class action. No one can explain this predicament better than Dick Gregory. He is our chief officer in essential military intelligence.

I asked for advanced funding to secure Dick’s appearance on TUESDAY, December 30, 2014. Our people are well-meaning. We expect enough promissory notes to come in to give Dick the green light. In the United States, central intelligence should be subject to an unlimited budget. This is a work-in-progress.

Dick Gregory will be the keynote speaker at UAM’s weekly forum on the special date of TUESDAY, December 30, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. The venue will be Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Franklin and Classon) in Brooklyn. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue. Knowledge is necessary. Our very survival is at stake. White supremacists are bi-lingual. They only speak “legalese” and “military science.”

The UN General Assembly, in 1948, created a new international crime: Genocide. This crime is now being played out in the United States. Human rights lawyers will be needed to plead the cause of descendants of enslaved Africans on a world stage. “Ambulance chasers” and “social parasites” have no motive for upsetting the applecart. The U.S. Justice Department is subject to the Compromise of 1877.

“Don’t Bother Me: I’m Coon Huntin”

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War)

The first narrative in 100 Years of Lynching was about Coweta County, Georgia. This lynching gave Dr. W.E.B. DuBois a new perspective on white supremacy but it would take a long time for it to sink in. At the time, he was a professor at Atlanta University. The term “picnic” arose out of this lynching. It was a “picnic.” The victim was like Dred Scott. He was demanding his hard-earned wages.

Growing up in Coweta County, I remember “crackers” driving around in pick-up trucks with gun racks on their rear windows and racially-derogatory tags on their front bumpers.” “Cracker,” for them, is a term of endearment. President Jimmy Carter concurs.

Georgia law required only one tag on a vehicle and it should be placed below the trunk. The tag on the front of the vehicle would read: “Don’t Bother Me: I’m Coon Huntin.” All of Benjamin Crump’s clients, like all of us, are considered as “coons.” Hunting season is 24-7. Thousands of hooded Klansmen had a “March on Washington” in 1925. They opposed Cong. Dyer’s federal anti-lynching bill. The KKK is now acting under “color of law.”

Rev. Al Sharpton attended Tilden High School in Brooklyn. It was named after racist Gov. Samuel Tilden of New York. In 1877, Tilden became known for the problem that we are still suffering from today. It has handcuffed President Barack Obama and it has made me a victim of “judicial bullying” which is now supported by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Sharpton’s job, in league with the white media, is to divert attention away from the culprits and take free speech out of the streets. I may still be practicing law today if I had not defied the Compromise of 1877. The enactment of our “civil rights” legislation lasted for only a decade. See, Civil Rights Act of 1866. The U.S. Justice Department was established in 1870 to put a “brake” on them.

Whites enjoy natural rights. The descendants of enslaved Africans, on December 13, 2014, will be re-certifying, in D.C., their status as “second-class” citizens. This class originally was certified in 1857 and it was re-certified in 1896 when the U.S. Supreme Court “duped” and “spooked” us. Dred Scott was dictum. Plessy v. Ferguson was a judicial fallacy.

Ferguson, the respondent in the U.S. Supreme Court, was related to the namesake for Ferguson, MO. Plessy v. Ferguson has revived racial classifications. Nothing is coincidental. It is no accident that Michael Brown was assassinated in Missouri, the home of Dred Scott.

The real date for protest is the 123rd anniversary of the Bill of Rights, December 15, 2014. All eyes should be on this date and NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman should be asked to explain why a grand jury, in Richmond County, NY was given “slave instructions” like in People v. John White.

Schneiderman has authority over grand juries, special prosecutors and the administration of justice. He should start by extirpating judicial gerrymandering. Public Advocate Letitia James is purportedly seeking a court order to unseal the grand jury transcripts in Garner. As Democrats, they should share the same mission.

This is why, through a letter to Chief Administrative Judge Fern Fisher of the Supreme Court – Civil Branch in Manhattan that, NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and NYC Public Advocate Letitia James were asked to show cause on December 15, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Manhattan Civil Court about the general “enforcement” of the Bill of Rights in New York.

Blacks must start knocking on the right door, talking to the right people and asking the right questions. Their offices should be flooded with e-mails over this week-end. It is cheaper than going to D.C. and financing our own oppression. This legal revolution will start with your computer and your telephone. Calling all families, friends, neighbors and co-workers about these public officials being in Manhattan Civil Court is a start. Public officials should love the public. They do at polling sites.

Demand a Pardon for Ramsey Orta Now!

This is the holiday season, when a governor issues out pardons. It is interesting that persons who seek justice for Eric Garner are comfortable with Ramsey Orta facing a criminal conviction in retaliation for him recording the chokehold death of Eric Garner. This lack of concern for Orta is not harmless.

The New York Police Department conducted a pre-emptive strike to undercut the quality of the evidence presented to the Eric Garner grand jury. The admissibility of any recording depends on laying a foundation and that turns on the credibility of a witness. If a person has a criminal record, a juror may disregard the testimony and the record

If a witness has a criminal record, a juror may disregard the testimony and the recording. This happened in the first grand jury investigation of Garner’s chokehold death and it could reoccur in an investigation by a federal grand jury searching for civil rights violations.

In the death of Michael Stewart, the first grand jury returned a no true bill. Louis Clayton Jones, Michael Warren and I made a second stab at an indictment. We succeeded. These rogue cops had to face a jury in a full-blown trial. It represents long hours of work.

Stewart represents the fact that “one and done” is sometimes insufficient. We went round-the-clock to secure indictments against rogue cops in Manhattan. With a committed group, it could happen in Staten Island. Cuomo should pardon Orta this month.

Going to Washington, DC should be a matter of last resort. A state prosecution is preferable. Rodney King stands for the proposition that the federal government will only act if you burn down your community. The exception is Yankel Rosenbaum.

The federal government prosecuted Lemrick Nelson in federal court on civil rights violations after he had secured an acquittal in Brooklyn Supreme Court on a murder rap. Jews were not seen chanting and marching in D.C. They were twisting arms in New York. Civil rights legislation was initially enacted for the protection of Blacks. Now, we are out of the loop.

Ramsey Orta will have to appear in Richmond County Supreme Court on January 22, 2015 on a trumped-up firearms charge. Instead of going to Washington, DC, pressure should be put on Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Albany, NY to give a full pardon to Orta for the retaliatory misconduct by the NYPD. A pardon is designed to avoid an injustice.

A pardon, continued protests and the appointment of a special prosecutor would give a clear signal to the residents of Staten Island that they should refrain from protecting rogue cops. “Marching feet” in Washington, DC will also not do the trick. This is nothing but a “wild goose chase” in D.C. to boost media ratings for racial racketeers. “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” A demand is a declarative statement and it ends with “or else.”

After the 2:00 p.m. court hearing in Manhattan Civil Court on Monday, December 15, 2014 a meeting will occur with Ramsey Orta present to discuss plans for a pardon for Orta. This pardon will help a state grand jury investigation and also any federal grand jury investigation. Orta’s testimony is as critical to a criminal prosecution as his recording was to the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Blacks in New York are Turning Deaf Ears to Black Victims

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

After I was fired from Harlem Assertion of Rights in 1976 for refusing to betray the parents and students of Cooper Junior High School, 120th Street and Madison Avenue in Harlem, I started to practice criminal law. This firing had been prompted by the “Gang of Four” to satisfy the racism of Mayor Abe Beame. Any public school, of Black students, that was succeeding, had to be closed.

When I started the practice of criminal law, the court system was a “police state.” Black lawyers were forbidden from sitting on the front benches and their clients had to wait until the cases of white lawyers had been called. When a Black defendant was on trial and requested water, the court officers would always fill the pitcher with water from the toilet. No one had the temerity to complain except myself.

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau summoned me to his office. My “constructive” escorts were Cong. Charles Rangel and the late NYS Secretary of State Basil Paterson. Dr. Calvin Butts, C. Vernon Mason and Sterling Johnson, the special narcotics prosecutor, and now a federal judge, heard Morgenthau read me the “riot act.” I must learn to behave like all Black judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers and law enforcement officers –or else.

Afterwards, Morgenthau would falsely charge me with assaulting court officers and obstructing justice. I would also be prosecuted on a false disciplinary complaint after I had beaten the criminal charges in Manhattan. No hearing was held but this unproved charge and conviction provided the basis for an illegal, five-year suspension on August 1, 1994, from the practice of law. This illegal suspension resulted from a judicial conspiracy.

Now, New York, without according me any semblance of a hearing, is claiming in Brooklyn Federal Court that I was disbarred in 1994. At worst, I should have been reinstated to the practice of law in July 1999. The suspension order of August 1, 1990, in providing the basis for a five-year suspension, falsely represented that I had been disciplined in Brooklyn for assaulting the court officers. I had not.

I was acquitted, after a jury trial, in People v. Maddox. A five year suspension was not only arbitrary and capricious but also cruel and unusual. It has amounted to an “indefinite suspension” from the practice of law. This illegal suspension is akin to the “indefinite suspension” of Ray Rice from the Baltimore Ravens.

This judicial conspiracy was extended to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. A separate license to practice law existed in Brooklyn Federal Court and in Manhattan Federal Court. I am still licensed to practice law in any federal court.

This is why the City of New York rushed into Manhattan Federal Court on September 6, 2014 to settle the so-called “Central Park 5″ while I was in Staten Island because of People v. Ramsey Orta, the videographer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. I have never been accorded a hearing in any federal court. The settlement hearing was initially scheduled for October 2014 at the earliest.

Twenty-seven years ago, Tawana Brawley was found with her body smeared with feces and bearing racial epithets and exhibiting other evidence of having been raped. Black people have refused to perceive this rape as a class action or a derivative action. Instead, it is a personal injury action.

After a key, female official of National Action Network was also raped by ten men, no one in the Black community sees it as a class action. Ten condoms were found at the crime scene. She was also drugged. The white prosecutor has refused to prosecute the white conductor of the “freight train,” Sanford Rubenstein and attorney for National Action Network.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is now saying that this is another false allegation against white men. He said the same thing after DSK of the IMF had raped Nafissatou Diallo in his hotel room in Manhattan. Instead of a judge dismissing the indictment, according to law, he, instead, unilaterally and illegally dismissed her claim as being perjurious. Now, Bill Cosby is being “fried” on belated and time-barred accusations by white women.

On WWW.REINSTATEALTONMADDOX.COM, I write journal-like articles almost daily at a cost of Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly, at my expense, to enlighten my people. Most Blacks are in prison not because of race but because of ignorance of the law. Whites do not have to play the “race card.” This website seeks to substantially reduce the number of persons entering in the prison-industrial complex.

Only one percent of the persons who receive these “missiles,” as Sis. Utrice Leid describes them, make any donation of any kind to support the website to combat state-sponsored violence and the prison-industrial complex. If I could find investors who would give me temporary relief, I would be able to help Tawana who is impoverished, unemployed, and destitute and has a child. While white women were fashioning a Women’s Equality Agenda for Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Black women chose to keep quiet. No help is accruing to Tawana Brawley.

White supremacy is a class action because it is an action against a class of descendants of enslaved Africans. Predators, acting under color of law, are not only jeopardizing our daughters but also our unarmed sons. So far, no Black father of a victim has taken any action against a white supremacist. Of course, any response should be a group action and not an individual action.

I agreed to provide pro bono representation to the Brawley family. Steven Pagones is unable to show that New York had subject-matter jurisdiction over his claims. I was also able to convince the jury in Pagones v. Maddox, et. al. that Pagones was one of the attackers. Yet, Pagones is able to convince the Commonwealth of Virginia that Tawana should be subject to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. I satisfied my part of the bargain. Now, the Black community must step up to the plate. Tawana Brawley also needs an attorney.

Eric Garner:

without comments

Personal Justice or Distributive Justice?

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

The illegal, chokehold death of Eric Garner on July 17, 2014 by “rogue members” of the New York Police Department is actually a class action because it is an action directed at a particular class but ambulance chasers have chosen to depict it as a personal injury action. A hubcap case is also a personal injury action.

In a class action, a settlement requires that justice is extended to the class before compensation is granted to the victim. Among other things, there must be a deterrent component in the settlement to give the class an opportunity to protect itself against future occurrences. A perpetrator must feel the wrath of the class. The “Central Park 7″ should have been a class action.

Ramsey Orta videotaped the chokehold death of Eric Garner. As should have been predicted, the New York Police Department falsely arrested and immediately indicted Orta. This is of no moment for an “ambulance chaser” who, by definition, elevates “hush money” over justice. An ambulance chaser makes no waves. It is all about “hush money.”

A human rights attorney would not leave Orta unprotected in People v. Ramsey Orta, Ind. No. 162 (Sup. Ct., Richmond Co. 2014). The first priority would be to send the “rogue cops” to prison. This is the ultimate punishment. With criminal records, “rogue cops” would be unable to act under color of law again. If Ramsey Orta is wrongfully convicted, a successful, criminal prosecution of the “rogue cops” would be unlikely.

In violation of Orta’s Sixth Amendment right, New York has chosen to assign a former assistant district attorney in Richmond County to represent him. This is a conflict of interest but it will happen if Blacks continue to believe that the chokehold death of Eric Garner is a personal injury action and not a class action.

When the “Central Park 7″ was indicted in 1989, only four Black lawyers answered the bell even though every Black lawyer should have filed a notice of appearance in Manhattan Supreme Court. The four lawyers were disciplined for not behaving as “slaves.” Three were disbarred.

All Black lawyers and Black selected officials should make it their business to be at the Richmond County Supreme Court, 18 Richmond Terrace in Staten Island, Part 6 at 9:30 a.m. Give them a ring early and often on Thursday. It is their job. As oath-takers, justice should be their number one priority.

I received a regrettable call Wednesday evening. A true warrior in the legal profession had made his transition. He was in a special class and you knew he had your back. He was also an associate of Louis Clayton Jones and Chokwe Lumumba, revered ancestors.

With them, you were picking in high cotton. I am thankful that Sis. Karen Mason made it possible for me to be in Chicago on Thursday. I will see everyone on Saturday morning at Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue.

Call a Black attorney in addition to Eric Garner’s attorney and give notice of Orta’s court appearance and Black Solidarity Weekend. The prosecution is a class action directed at all Blacks and Latinos. Orta is the victim. All Blacks and Latinos are the targets. It is Orta today. It may be you tomorrow. Who will have your back?

Politics: A Business or a Hobby?

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

The political system emulates the legal system. Lawyers drafted both systems and they are alike in many respects. Voters are required, as groups, and not as individuals, to submit responsive pleadings. In law, it would be called an answer. In politics, it is called an agenda. A group, that fails to make a demand through an agenda, defaults. Politics, for that group, morphs into a beauty contest.

A candidate who is viewed as a beauty contestant owes zero to voters. This happened to Blacks in New York City in 2013. Even though they voted overwhelmingly for William de Blasio and their vote was critical to his election, Black voters had failed to convene a political convention and file a political agenda. For Blacks, de Blasio went from being a candidate to becoming a beauty contestant.

Among other things, Blacks were enthralled with “jungle fever.” While Blacks were still spell-bound, de Blasio refused to appoint any Black person to a key position in his mayoral administration and, instead, contrary to Black emotions, appointed William Bratton as police commissioner.

Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani first introduced Bratton to New York City to extirpate Blacks. De Blasio’s plan is to revive both former Mayors Ed Koch and Giuliani. Blacks hated both of these men and they hated Blacks. Bratton is changing his style but unjust laws are still on the books.

Before the 2013 General Election, the Freedom Party sponsored an unpublicized political seminar in October 2013. I used this occasion to do political forecast. Censorship kept Blacks from hearing it, however. Voting is like any outdoor sport. You must employ a meteorologist.

With support from “Friends of Alton Maddox,” I used an ad in the Am News to show that Bratton was a bad fit for Blacks. If Black voters had read this ad before going to the polls, Eric Garner might still be alive. No other Black person publicly sounded the alarm.

Since my arrival in New York City, I have never seen or heard of any Black person who either drafted a political agenda or sponsored a political convention. In the meantime, I have never witnessed Blacks securing anything but political crumbs from the white power structure. History will definitely repeat itself on November 4, 2014 if Blacks, in New York City, remain wedded to “plantation politics.”

The handwriting is definitely on the wall. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor of the U.S. Supreme Court gave Blacks the first clue. Afterwards, the “High Court” gutted the key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Attorney General Eric Holder is about to escape the cuckoo’s nest and the Congressional Black Caucus has no intention of drafting, for Blacks, an enforcement provision for the Fifteenth Amendment.

During slavery, the United States was known as a democracy but it was actually a timocracy. Without an enforcement provision for the Fifteenth Amendment, Blacks will suffer a gradual loss of voting rights. The Supreme Court decisions of Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC are paving the way.

In addition to a public library, the Black community needs a law library because the “High Court” renders decisions that are game changers. For example, Plessy v. Ferguson was a game changer. Dred Scott had also been a game changer. Today, Blacks are still unaware of the meaning of Harlan’s dissent in Plessy and the legal and political ramifications of Dred Scott.

The campaign financing decisions have reverted Black voting rights back to eighteen century timocracy. This amounts to slavery. Black’s Law Dictionary defines timocracy as “as aristocracy of property; government by propertied, relatively rich people.”

The “High Court” has given the signal for the aristocracy to amass a war chest against “social parasites.” The white power structure is fearful that “termites” will overrun the government while Blacks will enjoy the balance of power like in New York City.

My people must eventually recognize that nothing in life should be free. Frederick Douglass said its best: “You may not get everything you pay for but you will pay for everything you get.” He also said that “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has and it never will.”

Douglass was referring to a political agenda. Blacks had started political conventions before the Civil War and before either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party had sponsored one. Like it or not, the rules of engagement in this country are listed in the U.S. Constitution. A constitutional scholar, and not a rhetorician, is needed to construe it.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.”

Gov. Cuomo Was Out of Bounds in Afghanistan

Somebody should throw a flag. This is political football. In order for American politics to work, some institution needs to serve as a referee. A free press is missing in the Black community. Thus, no one is present to keep white supremacists honest. This is why Black should be offended when any media outlet practices censorship.

Today, my role is that of an educator, instead of litigator, since the Black community is willing to tolerate “judicial bullying” against an attorney who was not a felon, who had never been cited for contempt of court and who had never been charged with betraying a client.

In the meantime, white felons have permeated the judicial system to the detriment of Blacks. They are routinely fleecing their clients. Blacks deserve better legal representation. For white felons, the practice of law is engendering full employment.

Reportedly Gov. Cuomo secretly embarked on a trip to Afghanistan last week. His fellow travelers are Bill Haslan, Republican of Tennessee, Brian Sandavol, Republican of Nevada and Jay Nixon, Democrat of Missouri. All of these governors are from states that are either enrolled in or is a sympathizer of the Confederate States of America.

This is a rank conspiracy against President Barack Obama. These governors have no constitutional basis for enjoying a political junket to Afghanistan. The U.S. Supreme Court certainly settled, in Curtiss-Wright Expert Corp. v. United States, that “the president of the United States had ‘plenary’ powers in the foreign affairs field not dependent upon congressional delegation.”

Gov. Cuomo had as much business going to Afghanistan as Mayor Michael Bloomberg would have had in going to Virginia and telling the National Rifle Association to stop marketing guns. States rights would have blocked Bloomberg and the U.S. Constitution is blocking Cuomo from interfering with foreign affairs.

As constitutional oathtakers, both Cuomo and Nixon have their hands full enforcing the U.S. Constitution unless Dred Scott is still the law of the land. Michael Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner was choked to death in Staten Island, NY. Police officers were the criminal agents in both cases.

Both Cuomo and Nixon are lawyers and former state attorneys general. They are both aware that when cement hardens, arrests are ripe. No arrests have happened in either Ferguson or Staten Island. Instead, a grand jury in both states is being given the opportunity to review probable cause and not to seek indictments. This is impermissible under the law. It means that no one will have to account for two senseless deaths.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.”

White Paternalism and Negro Politics

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

Rev. James Bevel, lieutenant of Dr. Martin L. King Jr., hit the nail on the head. Black selected officials in New York are ignorant because the Black masses are ignorant. Intelligent voters would not have ignoramuses representing them except in New York . Black voters in New York believe that you only need physical strength to pull down the levers in a voting booth to get a positive result.

No need for any person who attends a court proceeding to have some knowledge of the legal process and the U.S. Constitution. Blacks retain shysters to navigate them through an indictment. These lawyers meet them in hallways of courthouses to discuss plea deals. A successful criminal defendant will retain a “silver rights” attorney and sue for false arrest.

Planning in advance of a General Election is important. You need to do more than read the endorsements in the New York Amsterdam News to be ready to do political battle in the voting booth. These voters are unable to distinguish between a tabloid and a trade journal. Blacks rely on tabloids for political information without enjoying any benefits of voter education and political education.

Voters must also distinguish between voter education and political education. An informed voter in New York must have a copy of the New York Election Law, the U.S. Constitution and Black’s Law Dictionary. This voter should also read articles in a trade journal to understand the political process.

Blacks from the South were told that if you wanted a good education, you need to pack your bags and follow the North Star. Some of my relatives also “bit the bullet.” They were intelligent but many of them fell through the cracks when they were thrown in the prison pipeline. New York is only one of two states that automatically prosecute children under eighteen years of age as adults. Black parents refuse to address this issue in a Black Agenda or at a political convention. See “Central Park 7.”

Their lives are destroyed ab initio as children. A blue ribbon commission had found that New York’s judicial system is “infested with racism.” Not a single Black, selected official has expressed any concern about “racism” in the judicial system. This means that Blacks in New York have a comfortable mindset of living on plantations. Master-slave law only requires obedience. Blacks approve of “judicial racism” and “judicial bullying.”

Black voters in New York are unaware that an agenda must precede voting. I may be the only exception. They are prepared to rush into polling booths without an agenda. These voters “favor freedom yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground …. “See Frederick Douglass ”

Under the “separation of powers” doctrine, each of the three branches of government must has an agenda. The executive branch of government drafts an agenda in January. It is called the “State of the Union” address. The legislative branch of government follows. The U.S. Supreme Court announces its agenda on the first Monday of every October.

Special interest groups also have agendas. Every special interest group bet on, at least, one of the three branches of government to deliver the goods. There may also be an executive strategy, a legislative strategy and a judicial strategy. If a special interest group engages in “petty cash,” it is one size fits all. This applies to Blacks. In any event, everyone else pays to play. Social parasites have no influence in voting booths.

White women have fashioned a political agenda for November 4, 2014 and Gov. Cuomo is promoting it on the political stump. Latinos have fashioned the “Dream Act” and Gov. Cuomo is promoting it also. Although Blacks have refused to fashion or endorse a Black Agenda, no other ethnic or special interest group will beat them running to the polls on November 4. We are good, financially and politically, for everybody but ourselves.

Supporters of 2014 Black Agenda are having a difficult time framing a political agenda. I have given some additional instructions. Hopefully, these attached instructions will assist this committee of the Freedom Party. A political party is a group right. The group must fashion a 2014 Black Agenda.

This is new and uncharted territory for Blacks. We are in dire need of voter and political education. Black selected officials are of no HELP. “The blind is leading the blind.” Black voters need HELP. Whites no longer need Blacks. See the New World Order. Blacks are on a path to genocide. Blacks love their enemies and hate their friends. Whites operate in reverse fashion.

With respect to Ebola, President Barack Obama talks about having a protocol and following a protocol. With respect to politics, Blacks do not have a protocol. Therefore, Blacks are unable to pursue a political agenda. The result is the same as it is in medicine: lacking a medical protocol to combat Ebola. Politics is not only hazardous but it is also deadly.

I will be at the Brooklyn Christian Center in Brooklyn on this Wednesday evening to briefly discuss: “No Black Political Convention: No Need for Blacks to Vote.” On Thursday, “Behind the Bench” has obviously, if not impliedly, canceled my scheduled lecture — “Sharpton: Victim or Target” — at the Harlem Public Library in Harlem. Deception is a tool in military science. It is being used against Al Sharpton.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.” “Freedom is not free.” No one should ride the back of another person.

Requiem for an Informed Voter

HELP (History, Ethics, Logic and Philosophy) constitutes the four cornerstones of politics. All of these cornerstones are essential to participating in politics. Militarism is essential to protecting these cornerstones. It is essential that the guardians of politics must understand military science. This is the reason for “separation of church and state.”

In order to understand politics from a constitutional perspective, it is essential to employ a constitutional scholar. The political base for politics is the First Amendment. This amendment was a critical for securing civil rights. The rights of free speech and free associations are critical elements of politics and they are critical elements of the First Amendment.

The mere fact that an illiterate voter can go into a polling booth does not mean that an uninformed voter should be permitted into a polling booth. There is a big difference between an illiterate voter and an uninformed voter. Kudos should be extended to Bruce Copney for providing free copies of the U.S. Constitution to political cadets.

Like it or not, the U.S. Constitution constitutes political rules of engagement. Militarism requires a working knowledge of the rules of engagement. No agenda can be fashioned without a working knowledge of these rules. An agenda is tantamount to an answer. A party who fails to file an answer defaults. An agenda provides the reasons for going to the polls.

No agenda can be fashioned without a political convention. Black’s Law Dictionary defines a “convention” as a “deliberative assembly” for the purpose of “framing” issues as a condition precedent to voting. An issue allows voters to decide the allocation of resources and who benefits from the allocation of resources. No voter should be picking “beauty contestants.” A chosen candidate should be able to “bring home the bacon.”

The assembly on Saturday went into a working session later to outline to Gov. Andrew Cuomo the critical issues affecting Blacks as a group. It started with “taxation without representation.” Black selected officials have failed to fashion a Black Agenda. “Plantation politics” is just fine. Blacks do all the heavy work and whites enjoy all the benefits.

Today, our plight is worse than it was in slavery. During slavery, for example, full employment and free health care were available. Lynching and chokeholds, unless a “slave” acquired jungle fever, were not used. You could “Tom” your way into the Big House. “Slaves” were not required to pay taxes of any kind. Today, “the power to tax is the power to destroy.”

The next step for the planning session is to conduct discovery. Black selected officials have no right to block access to information. This must be done, first, through interrogatories. Pre-action disclosure is permissible under the Civil Practice Law and Rules. Voting is a “class action.” Effective voting for an ethnic group is impossible without ethics. The Black community must fashion a “code of ethics.”

I introduced the need for a “code of ethics” in June 1987 at House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn when it was proposed that Rev. Al Sharpton was the problem. Sharpton was not the problem. The absence of a “code of ethics” was then and still is the problem today. For Blacks, ethics is the glue that can bind us together. The reason why Blacks do not stick together can be attributed to being glueless and clueless. To make matters worse, Black will not “listen,” according to Dr. John Henrik Clarke.

While Black voters may go to the polls on November 4, they should not go to the polls uninformed. “Political tricks” have always done us in. Our leaders are “moonlighting” as pimps for white johns many of whom are felons but are, nonetheless, allowed to practice law in New York State while the prison-industrial complex is busting at the seams. Only a Black Agenda will stop mass incarceration.

Ferguson: “Plantation Politics” or “Black Power”

without comments

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

I learned at Central High School in Newnan, Georgia that critical thinking requires a mastery of fractions in order to call things by their right names. The object is to reduce a fraction to its lowest common denominator. I would apply this approach to all of my high school courses. If I had not been a “militant,” I may have probably been the valedictorian of my graduating class.

Central High School was blessed with excellent instructors but it had a common flaw. A student’s GPA depended on a teacher’s forecast of a Black student’s amenability to “white supremacy” and “deportment.” It was clear that I had a problem embracing white supremacy. I would have become an embarrassment, in the future, to those teachers. I also was not in the “top ten” in my class academically due to militancy.

Blacks in New York City employ the same approach at the polls. They have learned and steadfastly embrace the “white primary” system to endorse the selection of their political representatives by white supremacists. Over a period of time, Cong. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. became a political embarrassment to voters in Harlem despite his unprecedented, legislative achievements in Congress. This is “plantation politics” at its best.

In Powell v. McCormack, in 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Cong. Adam Clayton Powell’s Jr.’s lawsuit was “ripe” against the doorkeepers and sergeant-at-arms since he had met all of the qualifications under Art. 1, sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution. Congress, however, was not a proper party. The Court, retroactively, noted that a vote to exclude could not become a vote to expel. Powell would be fined and stripped of his seniority.

It is of great interest that Black voters in Harlem would give great deference to a “High Court” that penned the infamous dictum in Dred Scott. They did. Charles Rangel defeated Powell in 1970 and sent him packing to Bimini –heartbroken. Even without seniority, Powell was a better bet than Rangel but white supremacists had spoken.

Powell v. McCormack was only the tip of the iceberg. Cong. Powell had held a Black Power Conference on Capitol Hill in 1966. Powell was ousted as chairman of the House and Education and Welfare Committee on January 9, 1967. When you connect the dots, it is not surprising that Congress acted with great haste. Powell was bent on replacing “plantation politics” with “Black Power” and forming a “People’s Party.”

In the meantime, Blacks in Ferguson have sought to replace “Negroism” with justice. Every legal system in the United States is not only corrupt but also racist. Robert McCulloch, the district attorney in St. Louis County, is no exception. Missouri is unprepared or unwilling to give its Black residents of Ferguson even a modicum of justice by relieving McCulloch of his duties for investigating the death of Michael Brown by P.O. Darren Wilson.

Probable cause has already been established for the death of Brown. Unless the slave code is still in effect in Missouri, descendants of enslaved Africans witnessed the murder. Scientific evidence will also establish a homicide. Eyewitness evidence plus scientific evidence supports probable cause for an immediate arrest of Wilson under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Similarly, probable cause also exists for the immediate arrest of P.O. Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY. The cause of death was a chokehold. The manner of death was homicide. A videotape not only recorded the chokehold but also the rogue cops who either applied or assisted in applying the chokehold.

The executive branch of government not only has the responsibility to enforce the law but also the responsibility to relieve any prosecutor who refuses to enforce the law. Probable cause under the Fourth Amendment requires an immediate arrest. No police officer is entitled to a second bite at the apple. The grand jury must never be employed as an “appellate court” to review probable cause.

In both Missouri and in New York, the local prosecutors have refused to enforce the law by being unwilling to deliver pre-trial indictments. Probable cause is a synonym for an immediate arrest. The governors in both states are oath takers and they have refused to abide by or adhere to their oaths of office. On the other hand, only “ambulance chasers” are willing to be retained to only seek “hush money” for the aggrieved families and “no justice” for the communities.

On this past Wednesday, I received an e-mail from a “certified human rights defender” in Ferguson, MO which reads, in part: “I am writing you this letter on behalf of the citizens of Ferguson, MO and the state of Missouri itself. It is my humble request that you come to Saint Louis, Missouri and personally address the concerns of the citizens and legally represent us & begin filing motions etc. that will have officer Darren Wilson arrested, indicted. ….”

I am ready to travel to Ferguson, MO but I am unable to travel anywhere without financial support and legal persuasion from Blacks in New York to Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman of the New York Court of Appeals. In part, I suffer the same problem that Powell faced in Congress. The culprits in Powell were the doorkeepers and the sergeant-at-arms. The culprits in Maddox are doorkeepers and court officers.

Otherwise, Cong. Powell met all the qualifications of the U.S. Constitution. I have met all of the qualifications to practice law in New York. In New York, court officers are stationed in front of courtrooms and the state police are present on all New York highways even though I also meet all of the qualifications of a lawyer to represent my people without fee and to travel in and outside of New York.

For the past twenty-four years, New York has deprived me of an opportunity to earn a living even though I had spent most of my legal career doing pro bono work for New York and for Blacks. I spent everything, including my retirement, on representing my people. Only investors can “free” a people.

It is not sufficient to simply make donations. Activism requires funding. Social parasites are a drag on activism. Whites respect investors in white supremacy. Blacks disrespect investors in their liberation. In the Black community, social parasites exceed investors. In accounting, this amounts to a deficit.

A blue-ribbon commission, in 1991, had found that New York’s judicial system was “infested with racism.” It did not make sense for me to charge clients a commensurate legal fee. This would constitute double jeopardy. A percentage of an award to an “ambulance chaser” was also out of the question. This is triple jeopardy.

Like Cong. Powell, I also filed a civil rights action but in Brooklyn Federal Court citing Hachamovitch v. DeBuono, 159 F.3d 687 (2nd Cir. 1998) (Jacobs, J.) of which the facts of Maddox v. Prudenti, et. al. fitted on all fours. Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals heard my appeal. It did not make sense for him to reject his own reasoning in Hachamovitch to accommodate my civil rights claims in Maddox. It would mean overthrowing a bill of attainder.

Instead, unlike what the U.S. Supreme Court had done in Powell v. McCormick, Chief Judge Jacobs refused to take Maddox to the next level by the identifying the “doorkeepers” and “court officers” as the culprits. This is why I have always identified my plight as amounting to “judicial bullying.” Otherwise, I am still qualified to practice law in New York, Pennsylvania and in Georgia and am eligible to practice law pro hac vice in Missouri.

The residents of Missouri are simply asking for justice. It will not come in Ferguson, MO until there is a level playing field. An elected prosecutor has an inherent conflict-of-interest in investigating any death at the hands of a police officer who is a natural ally of the prosecutor’s office.

Former NYS Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams feigned to be a special prosecutor. He was ticked off when I called his hand. An elected prosecutor can never be a special prosecutor. This accounts for the unconstitutional and unfair result in Trayvon Martin. Every state, including Missouri, has a remedy. It is called a “special prosecutor.”

Fifty years ago, all civil rights activists headed to Mississippi. The state is a better place today. History, for the better, should repeat itself. The Congressional Black Caucus should make an immediate change of venue in September 2014 from Washington, DC to St Louis, MO. Ferguson, MO is Exhibit “A” of a national problem. Blacks, nationwide, are suffering from a “shoot-to-kill” policy and a “choke-to-kill” policy. Streets and cities are unsafe for Blacks.

Too honest for the White Press and too black for much of today’s Black Press; bullet columnist Alton Maddox upsets the same people and status quo as he did as an uncompromising Defense Attorney. He is also a founding member of the Freedom Party. Please support the movement to Reinstate him. Contact him at c/o UAM P.O. BOX 35 BRONX, NY 10471.
