Words Can Hardly Describe this Level of Injustice

**spread this far and wide

(how much longer will Michigan allow this in Berrien County?)


Shannon David McKinney was found guilty today by a Berrien County jury. The charge was possession of marijuana. There were .00004 grams of marijuana planted by officer Collins and officer Bernard Hall. Both claim it was in McKinney's pocket. Mr. McKinney does not smoke or sell marijuana.

Court-appointed attorney Berger from Berger & Laforge law firm refused to subpoena witnesses for the defendant to prove that officer Collins and Hall planted the marijuana or to find that there was no marijuana at all.

McKinney had several witnesses who would testify that he had no marijuana in his possession. He told the judge that court-appointed attorney Berger refused to subpoena his witnesses. McKinney recorded the phone conversation without attorney Berger's knowledge. During the conversation Berger made several statements in reference to witnesses and told McKinney he refused to subpeona witnesses and that McKinney could do nothing about it. McKinney played the tape for me.

Before the trial started and before she heard any evidence, Judge Angela Pasula told the defendant, "You are going to trial and then to jail." Judge Angela Pasula, the prosecutor, and court-appointed attorney Berger were a team against Mr. McKinney.

Legal malpractice has been defined in Michigan by a series of cases beginning with Babbit v Bumpus. The Michigan Supreme court defined legal malpractice in Michigan as any professional misconduct - acts by your attorney that cause you to suffer a damage.

Since I have been a court observer in Berrien County, I have seen thousands of people just like Mr. Shannon McKinney. Who will be next? When are the good people of this county, this state, this country going to stand up and say enough is enough. There will be a war soon and Berrien County courthouse and law enforcement will not win.

Hmmm... what did Officer Collins or Officer Hall have to gain? Why would someone risk their career over a possession arrest or any other criminal offense? Seems strange to me that one would "plant" such a small amount of marijuana? Also I wonder what was used to weigh the marijuana? Was there a lab report? Did the wrongly accused poor inocent man use any of his funds to locate or secure a lawyer? Why did his witnesses not show up and demand to be heard? How was the man found guilty when there are not trials on Monday's in Berrien County (I've checked). What kind of sentence did this defendant recieve?

Oh, I know!

Conspiracy, Conspiracy, Conspiracy.

Finally you have some proof: the tape recording of the court appointed attorney and the defendant!
NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE IT TO THE FEDERAL PROSECUTOR IN GRAND RAPIDS!
Do it now so they will intervene and stop your trial while they investigate this matter.
You claim to have proof. SHOW IT!

It doesn't make sense, it's that simple. It doesn't make sense, because it's yet another ploy to get you to jump into Pinkney's cult.

Collins or Hall have no motivation to do something like that. McKinney's attorney probably told him what he did because it simply does not make sense for Collins or Hall to plant such a small amount of marijuana on him. It would be like trying to prove to a jury that rabbits don't like carrots.

Get a life Pinkney, or better yet, a JOB. I wish I could sit on my ass in the courtroom all day, but some of us have to work to make a living for our families.

Even many of those who acknowledge that police and court appointed attorney misconduct exists,but the people still discount its significance by claiming that nobody`s perfect or there may be a few bad apples.The bottom line it is time to go to war; we must start to pick up, our guns,collins have a history of planting drugs.it is time to stop all this talking,i am ready for war.

Have you seen McKinneys record you idiot... He is hardly the good people of the county. Rev. Pickney your mission is not being accomplished and soon you will see the justice system work when it finally puts you in jail. You take a story and twist it so bad that you make people think it is true. You never have proof and all you do is write about it. You never can prove anything and that is that. And until you do no one will trust you. GOD must hate you....

Anonymous said...

The only reason Collins has a history of planting drugs is because idiots like you continue to falsely accuse him of doing so.

Go get your guns you piece of trash.

Anonymous said...

If you were arrested and charged with some made up crime simply because you are black.How would you feel if nobody believe you ?
and how would you win your case in court if nobody believe you,and most importantly,how could we ever put pressure on police departments to keep their officers trustworthy and honest,if nobody believe complaints of misconduct against dirty corrupted police officers.I think it is time to take out our guns and deal with those bad police officers.

Benton Harbor Neighbors Helping Police Fight Drugs
(WSBT) A major drug house is gone in Benton Harbor and police say neighbors are playing a huge part in getting rid of dealers in the city.

Police raided a house on Pearl Street Monday. Officers charged Robert Henderson and others with a laundry list of offenses including maintaining a drug house.

Police say neighbors were behind the bust. People who live in that area say not only are they sick of the drugs, they're also working on projects that will help revitalize the city.

The clean-up is coming along as far as what's happened in the past,” Charlene Brooks told WSBT News. “We’re moving forward, more businesses are coming into our community.”

Some neighbors say drugs are at the heart of city's other problems. They're hoping a team effort with police will help send a message to drug dealers

Now here is a story about what the community believes not the drug dealing scum.

Great interview on Radio today, the people in Muskegon was in shock after hearing your story.
Keep fighting the Battle until the whole war is won!
Remember none of this people were popular with their fight at first i.e. Dr. Martin Luther King, Marcus Garvey, Malcom X and Eljah Muhummad were considered outcasts.

The Question said...

Outcast is one thing. Edward Pinkney is a convicted criminal. I have never heard him deny that he ripped off those elderly people. Have you?

The closest he has done is to villify the reporter who "outted" him. Sad.

One thing you have left out. Why did the officer "plant" this? Cause it was fun? I will give you that he obviously had the opportunity, but he still needs a motive. Did he try and "shake down" the kid or did he just do it for jollies.

The biggest problem your "cause" has and why it falls on deaf ears is that the messenger is an insane criminal.

Unemployed insane criminal,
Meglomaniacal unemployed insane, criminal,


Feel free to add your own to the end of this because it is kinda fun, I could go on all day.

Here in berrien county,law enforcement officers vigorously opposed the creation of a citizen`s review board to investigate complaints of police officers.this does not inspire confidence.Benton Harbor police department threathened citizen with arrest for asking for a complaint form.Remember the truth will stand in the kingdom of God;

All of you that say bring out the guns, bring out the guns... Do you know what you are about to create. You can not win against the law. If you bring guns out then the police will bring in more then you can imagine. Lets not take what Rev. Pickney says and take it for real. Do any of you who say lets start a war know what really goes on. Do any of you actually see these things occurr. Rev Pickney gets everyone fired up because he believes everyones story. No one in Benton Harbor does wrong according to Pickney. That is far from true. Look at reality. Do not fear the police just live with them and live your life. Dont start a war that you will not finish.. and that you can not win. Dr. King never told any of us to go to war with guns he went to war with words and made a clear difference with out violence.. Try that first and look at both sides cause Pickney is not the person you think he is.

Lets all fight... That would be smart...Nothing happened the last time and nothing will happen this time except people getting hurt.. inocent people.. Fight your own battle and dont bring the rest of us down.

You should keep one gun fully loaded
at home and another ,when you are on the road.If you fight together,you can win.There will never be a change without a conflict,remember a gun doesn`t take up a lot of closet space.It is
not how big your enemy.it is how big your heart.

big willie, you deserve to be shot... you should be taken off the streets immediately. you probably beat your children and your babies mama. i would suspect you are a crack head with the jibberish you write. violence is never the answer and if you weren't a waste of a human being the police would probably never mess with you!

Big Willie, Have you ever heard of natural selection? God makes some of us a little slower and a little dumber (in your case) and the rest of us have to stay strong and smart to survive. Hopefully you will take up your little war, get shot, die and then the process will be complete! You are bringing down the curve Big Willie!!!

How is it that no other ministers have joined Ed's crew? If you drive through Benton Harbor, you will see churches everywhere. Yet, Ed continues his crusade alone.

Does that mean that all the other ministers and churches are part of the conspiracy? According to the standards set out by Ed Pinkney, Big Willie, Milton K, John, Carl and others, this must surely be the case!

By the way, Ed, have you taken the tape recording to the federal prosecutor in Grand Rapids yet?

Anonymous said...

I've got an idea, Big Willy.

Let Pinkney borrow your gun, and have him point it at a police officer.

Then when the police officer shoots and kills him, it will save the taxpayers approximately $100,000 (the cost of his trial).

Then, when you get your gun back, do the same thing, and pass the message on to all the members of your cult.

You'd be doing everyone a favor.

Rev Pinkney;remember none of these people were popular with white people.Dr Martin Luther King,Marcus Garvey,Malcolm X,Elijah Muhummard,all were considered outcast to the racist people in this country.I love what you are doing and what you have done.My pastor speaks very highly of you.you are a hero,keep fightning the good fight.

Make some specific threat Willie and let the police get a warrant and trace you.

It is pretty easy to do. Get the ip address, trace it back to a computer, do a reverse phone number search, address verification. Ouila then have you and to jail you will go... but first you will need to make a specific threat.
