3. After I was arrested on April 18 (released on bail the next day), the BH police made a concerted effort to scare BH residents. The following are quotes from police as reported by residents:
"How much were you paid by Rev. Pinkney to vote?"
"We've arrested Pinkney. You and your group are next."
"Banco is no more - Pinkney is in jail."
"Your voice in this town is gone. Pinkney won't last long in jail."
4. The following is the legal motion to have all the judges in Berrien county disqualified from hearing my case, including the chief judge of Berrien county, who is also on the list to be dismissed. The Chief Judge of the county would normally decide whether to disqualify judges from hearing a case. I am asking that the Berrien County Chief Judge (MaLoney) request the Administrator of the Michigan Supreme Court to appoint a judge from outside of Berrien County to make a decision on whether the Berrien County judges should or should not hear my case.
