Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

State Board of Canvassers, 9/8/14

Press Release

Friday September 12, 2014

Contact Rev. Edward Pinkney

On Monday, three more recall petitions were
filed with the Board of State Canvassers
against Berrien County Clerk Sharon Tyler:

(1) For not upholding the integrity of the
   county clerk's office by lying under
   oath concerning the chain of custody
   of the original recall petitions against
   the mayor of Benton Harbor, Michigan.

(2) For being untruthful to the Board of
   State Canvassers about the chain of
   custody concerning the petitions to
   recall the mayor of Benton Harbor,

(3) For filing an appeal to reverse Berrien
   County Judge John Dewane's decision to
   put the Benton Harbor mayoral recall on
   the November ballot.

There are now a total of six recall petitions
pending against Sharon Tyler.  The other three:

(4) On August 12, 2014 the Berrien County
   Court issued its opinion and order
   requiring that the question of the
   recall of the mayor of the city of Benton
   Harbor be placed on the ballot for the
   Nov. 4, 2014 general election.  Tyler
   filed an appeal to stop it from being
   placed on the ballot.

(5) For filing a motion for immediate consid-
   eration of the peremptory reversal of
   Berrien County Judge John Dewane's
   decision to place the recall election
   on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot.

(6) For filing a lawsuit to stop the city of
   Benton Harbor's mayoral recall election.

During the Sept. 4, 2014 hearing before the
Board, Sharon Tyler was untruthful under
oath.  The clerk viciously attacked the
Herald Palladium newspaper, stating the
Herald Palladium prints news that is not

Sharon Tyler did not tell the Board of State
Canvassers what her Election Administrator
Carolyn Toliver told the trial court -- that,
when approached by a detective of the Berrien
County Sheriff's Department, Toliver allowed
the original recall petitions to be taken
without a warrant, subpoena, or Judge's
order.  That broke the law -- Sections 492
and 491 of the state Penal Code.

We must stop the corruption inside the
Berrien County Courthouse.

Sharon Tyler Knowingly Walks Deeper Into Mud

List of Lie's Told by Berrien County Clerk (elected office) in Thursday's Clarity Hearing at the state capitol --

Fact:  Clerk Tyler requested $20,000.00 from county residents to appeal the recall of Mayor James Hightower.
In the clarity hearing she stated she did not specify an amount. 
However, she did request exactly $20K, and the Herald Palladium reported it.

Fact:  Clerk Tyler filed a lawsuit against herself.
In the clarity hearing she stated she did not.
In a county hearing where she stated she was filing a lawsuit to stop the election which she certified, Judge John Dewane stated, "You cannot file a lawsuit against yourself." She then filed the lawsuit against herself.  (If Whirlpool is behind you, you can break any law you wish.)

Fact:  The recall petitions were removed from Tyler's office by a sheriff's deputy without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.
In the clarity hearing she stated she was not aware of the petitions being removed from her office. 

Fact:  The recall petitions were taken to Lansing by the sheriff's deputy and left for more than three months.
In the clarity hearing she stated the petitions never left the county sheriff's office. 

Sharon Tyler is a bold-faced liar who's hands are slimey with mud.  In Berrien County, Michigan, justice for African-American Benton Harbor residents is very hard to come by with Whirlpool in charge of almost everything.

Sharon Tyler is Deep in Mud

Democracy means people have the right to choose their elected leaders, including through the recall process.

That was the message when Benton Harbor City Commissioner Marcus Muhammad and 
his supporters held an August 18 press conference in front of the Berrien County Courthouse.    

They spoke out against Berrien County Clerk Sharon Tyler's decision to appeal a recent 
court ruling that put the recall of Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower on the Nov. 4, 
2014 ballot.

"It's not about a candidate or a candidacy," Muhammad said shortly before the press conference.  "It's about democracy and the people's right to choose, because their voice is their choice." 

City voters will choose between the Whirlpool puppet Hightower and Commissioner Muhammad for mayor, if Tyler's appeal is unsuccessful. Tyler is appealing the decision on 
an emergency basis to the Michigan Court of Appeals. Tyler hired two of the largest Law firms in the country, Miller Canfield and Paddock and Dykema, Gossett PLLC with money from the citizens of Berrien County.  

She also requested $20,000.00 from the citizens Berrien County. 

Puppet mayor James Hightower's term ends Dec.31, 2014. Commissioner Trenton Bowen
stated, "The mayor said he was ready in May and Commissioner  Muhammad is ready, so I do not see what the hold up is.  Let the people vote."

The initial recall election scheduled for May 6 was cancelled at the request of the clerk and Whirlpool Corporation.  The puppet mayor was losing the election by a landslide, according to inside information on absentee ballot results. The clerk then filed a lawsuit against herself to stop the election.

After a one day trial, Judge John Dewane ordered that the recall election be put on the Nov. 4 ballot.  He said the county clerk's practice of throwing out both signatures, if a person signed a petition twice, violated the First Amendment.  The judge was on point.

Former Benton Harbor Mayor Wilce Cooke said Tyler initially approved the petitions so a recall election could be held. Then she questioned her own decision and so we have another mess in Berrien County.

Tyler gave the original petitions to the sheriff's dept. without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.  She contaminated the investigation and may have altered the dates on the petitions. Her hands are deep in mud and she's not to be trusted. 

Clerk Tyler is being recalled:

-- for filing a lawsuit against herself to stop the recall election on May 6, 2014.

-- for allowing the sheriff to remove the original recall petitions from her office without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.

-- for requesting $20,000.00 dollars of Berrien County citizens to appeal Judge DeWane's decision to place the recall election on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot.

Sharon Tyler is a former State Representative in the 78th District.  She must go.  Join me in recalling Sharon Tyler.  She is another official controlled by the Whirlpool corporation.
