First and foremost Christina Wilke a white resident of Berrien County, Michigan said, she feel compelled to add the disclaimer that her letter is no way political. Christina is absolutely correct, it is racist.

She also claimed, she support the constitution, if you do support the constitution of the United State of America, you would have been protesting, the Berrien County courthouse on July 11, 2017. It is obvious  you are without morals Christina.

Joe Zangaro and Ron Kienzie both knew about the corruption inside Berrien County. The murder of Martell Hadley by a Berrien County Sheriff. The 50 or more women, who was sexually assaulted by the Berrien County sheriff department and you said nothing.Former Commissioner Robert Wooley stealing more than a million dollars and you said nothing.

All the families that has been destroyed by Judge Dennis Wiley, Judge Scott Schofield, Judge Charles LaSata, Judge Sterling Schrock,Judge Art Cotter,and prosecutors Mike Sepic and James Cherry.

Berrien County justice, the measure of menand states,has been the subject of discussion over the centuries.To define justice properly, one must consider the action of man as they they affect the well being of others. We would suggest that justice can properly bedefined as the process by which each receive, what is duehim, and it does not matter, if a person is black or white. To give to others, what is due, is the essence of justice and involves the concept of duty and obligation.This is the failure of Berrien County courthouse and why you should have been protesting on July 11.

Christina Wilke, I received more than 15, 000 letters from all over the world, denouncing the corruption inside the Berrien County Courthouse, which also include more than 50 letters from St. Joseph, Michigan and 5 from Three Oak, Michigan.

One letter really got my attention from St Joseph a wealthy white resident said 33% of all Berrien County residents were good people, but 67% are bad people , liars, corrupt and racist. She said the bad people the 67% over power the 33% that are good folks by intimidating, harassing and threatening.

I find it very sad that you did not had enough compassion or morals to stand up for the women, who were sexually assulted. Christina wilke you should have joined the protest on July 11, 2017 and help stop the corruption inside Berrien County Courthouse.

The American criminal justice system , justice is totally absent.There is no such thing as justice in Berrien County Courthouse.

Judge John Donohue is not a racist judge

Judge John Donohue is not a racist. He is one of the best judges and fairest judges in the history of Berrien County. He treats Blacks and Whites fairly. He should never be considered to be unfair to any group of people.

-Rev. Pinkney

One true judge

Joseph Zangaro and Ron Kienzle will be judge by the true Judge of all judges God. There is only one true Judge that is God.Man will attempt to built up the devil, but God has the last say.

Joe and Ron should be remembered not just how they died, but how they lived. Both men knew about the corruption inside the Berrien County Courthouse justice system  and did nothing. God will let them explain and you do not get extra point for being a law enforcemen officers.All the families that was destroyed by Berrien County .

I asked Joe, if you witness Judge Wiley, Judge LaSata, or Judge Schofield breaking the law, what would you do? He refused to answer. Joe knew how bad the corruption was inside the Berrien County courthouse, but he did nothing. God is going to remember, how you lived.God is going to remember the darkness you reflected to the oppressed people in the darkest places of the world.

What would make Larry Gordon want to escape and kill anybody? What would make Larry Gordon want to kill, rathan going to trial? Larry told me he would never going to trial in berrien County, because you do not have a chance in this world.

I think this was a sucide mission, but I am not suprise. The murder of Martell Hadley by the sheriff department, The 50 or more women, who was sexually attacked by berrien County sheriff dept.You had a Berrien County sheriff Lt walking out of  Walmart with a shopping cart of groceries for over a year.The employee's know about the corruption, but turn their head to the truth. You are suppose to accept corruption by law enforcement even, if they kill a citizen, it is justified Homicide. you should accept corruption by the oppressor.God is the true judge, I can not put you in heaven or hell and you get no points for being white and working for law enforcement..

I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth To to him was given the keys to the bottomless pit.And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace.So the sun and air were darkness, because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpion of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their Foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strike a man. In those days men will seek Death and will not find it.They will desire to die and death will flee from them.{ this is the second death}

The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.They had hair like women's hair and their teeth were like lions teeth. And they had breastplates of iron and and the sound of their wings were like the sound of chariots with many  horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and  there were stings in their tails.Thier power was to hurt men five months and they had a king over  them the angel of the bottomless pit. whom name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek, he has the name Apollyon.One Woe is past, behold still two more Woes are coming.God said He is the Judge of all judges.

Join the Protest July 11 in Berrien County!

When: Tuesday, July 11, 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Where: Berrien County Courthouse (811 Port Street, St. Joseph, MI 49085)
Bring: Signs, water, friends and family

In the American criminal justice system, justice is totally absent. There is no such thing as justice in America for the poor. The criminalization of U.S. citizens by the injustice system is now one of America's largest industries. Prisons have been privatized and inmates comprise cheap labor for big corporations.

The United States of America not only has the highest percentage of its population in prison, it has the highest absolute number, substantially higher than authoritarian Chinaa country whose population is four times the size of the United States, but a country with fewer people in prison.

On July 11, we will gather at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Berrien County Courthouse (811 Port St., St. Joseph). We will march, and at noon we will protest in front of Whirlpool Headquarters. The state of Democracy is detestable, and we are not about to sit back and let it continue its course. Corporations' interests are not above the rights of every day human beings like you and me.

Whirlpool Corporation is responsible for the death of 79 people in London and we must stop the hostile takeover of the city of Benton Harbor. They must be held accountable to the people.

Let's confront the criminal justice system and the corporations that are destroying our country!

Rev. Pinkney, free at last, is already back in action

June 29, 2017

by Philip A. Bassett 
In these days of tremendous change and social upheaval, it’s good to know that a man of impeccable integrity is back in the public arena. After two and a half years in various Michigan prisons, Rev. Edward Pinkney has returned to his home in Benton Harbor, Mich. A bulldog for social justice, the reverend, who turns 69 this year, shows no sign of slowing.
Free at last, Rev. Edward Pinkney is welcomed home by his loving wife, Dorothy Pinkney.
His wife, Dorothy, had hoped to put him on “lockdown” for at least a week to ease his adjustment to life out of prison, but he left me a voice mail just five days after his release and the next day he attended a public event in his honor in Ann Arbor. I caught up with him the following day and he spoke about how he coped with being locked up.
“There is drama every day in prison,” he told me. “Even among friends.” He said there were more than a few times where he was on the phone with Dorothy and a fight would break out somewhere nearby.
For some reason, his first placement after the customary quarantine at Jackson Prison was in a high-security facility in Coldwater, Mich. He humorously describes his roommate situation there as “four killers and me” and says it distressed him that much of their conversation centered on bragging about murders they had committed.
His next move to a prison in Marquette, Mich., was like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. At Marquette, he says, the atmosphere was so hostile and the guards so aggressive he had to press himself “flat against the wall” to avoid touching the guard when he came down the hall – a sure assault charge.
It was here, too, that he was accused of “smoogling” because a friend had interviewed him and was leaving with some notes. The guard’s spelling error helped the reverend win the case, but his phone privileges were revoked for six months anyway. The sentence was doubly harsh because he was now nearly 500 miles away from his wife, with no hope for a visit.

After two and a half years in various Michigan prisons, Rev. Edward Pinkney has returned to his home in Benton Harbor, Mich. A bulldog for social justice, the reverend, who turns 69 this year, shows no sign of slowing.

Luckily, a few activists in the area became aware of his plight and started to visit him regularly. That the reverend had any support in this all-white community far from his home was probably a surprise to the authorities there.
After some time, he was moved again, this time to a facility in Muskegon, Mich. Here things were more relaxed, he says, and, after they got to know him, even he and the guards seemed to get along. On top of that, he was now only a two-hour drive away from Dorothy.
Philip Bassett’s highly acclaimed book about Rev. Pinkney is available at Marcus Books and other local book stories and on Amazon.
Nonetheless, even here there was a situation that was irritating. Television viewing is first come, first served and he found himself in competition with inmates who liked to listen to rap, while he preferred religious programs. The way he worked through the conflict, strangely enough, was by offering to teach basic math skills.
A class of one grew to 16, and by that time there was no longer any competition. In fact, they began watching out for the reverend and giving him his preference, even when he arrived late to the TV room.
There were other, more mundane complaints, probably familiar to most inmates: rotten, disgusting, worm-ridden food, so bad his wife had to send care packages so he could fix one meal a day; a moldy room that made him so ill he couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks; a fall off the top bunk that injured his shoulder enough that it still hurts two years later. The latter incident happened because the only way to get down from the bed was a rickety stool that toppled easily.
Despite these challenges and more, Rev. Pinkney appears to have emerged with his character intact, though he vows that moving forward, he’ll be “doing things differently.” For now, he is planning a protest in his town of Benton Harbor on July 11 and is attending a dinner and fundraiser in his honor on July 8 in Detroit. Both of these events can be referenced at bhbanco.organd anyone who is planning to be in the area on either of those days is encouraged to participate.
For those abreast of social issues, supporting Pinkney is a no-brainer, but if you’re attending one of his events for the first time it’s easy to miss the essence of the man. Since he is a Baptist preacher, Rev. Pinkney tends to speak in that style, repeating sentences he feels are important. That doesn’t appeal to everybody.
He sometimes humorously puts himself in the place of his oppressors to make a point and ends up talking about himself in the third person, which could sound egotistical to some. He jokes constantly with his audience, which might seem disrespectful or give the impression that he takes these things lightly. He has a very direct manner, which some could find off-putting, and he possesses an unearthly amount of confidence.

For those abreast of social issues, supporting Pinkney is a no-brainer.

However, those who take a closer look soon discover a deeply spiritual man with a wicked sense of humor and the manners of a Boy Scout, who treats his persecutors more like peers than adversaries and is not afraid of a political fight. And his confidence is not the fickle kind. Planted early and fed by countless successes, it is the confidence of a man who is consistently faithful to the promptings of his heart.
As a fighter for justice, Rev. Pinkney brings many gifts to the table. He has the discipline of a Gandhi and a nose for networking and politics. But the greatest gift he brings is his own patented brand of love – the strongest kind of love – the kind that can pierce prison walls and touch the hardest men’s hearts, even prison guards, and make anyone within range more hopeful, confident and willing to work together.
