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

Wow what a racist article. Blacks in Benton Harbor are apparently ALL Afrikan and none from Jamaica, Haiti or any number of areas. Wow, didn't know that.

I also didn't know that all whites come from Europe. There are no such thing as Slavic whites either. Interesting rewriting of history.

See the thing is that the jury members were all one nationality. Americans. I personally wouldn't care if a jury trying me was white or black or native american or oriental or whatever they may be. Why is the jury makeup even relevant? Are you saying that all whites are racist? That is very interesting and racist in it's very makeup.

Get a grip, he was found guilty because he was guilty.... again.

county court system.He get a
all white jury,who violated
the sanctity of their oath
and were motivated by something
other than the truth.Shame!
Shame!

What were they motivated by exactly? They didn't get paid, they had nothing to gain.

What would the judge have to gain? More intimidation by Pinkney? what would the jurors have to gain? They were threatened by Pinkney (lawsuits).

Now people on here are saying "get your guns"? That is crazy. You do realize that anonymous doesn't mean crap to homeland security. If they deem it a threat all they have to do is take your ip address and trace it. It will run straight back to the computer you used. So watch the threats people. This discussion is heated, but don't go over board.

Anonymous Joyce, Amen to your post.
However bare this in mind that Whirlpool is either putting money into the Judge's or Proscutor's re-
election campaign. As for the jury they are getting big pay also, due to the fact that the majority works for Whirlpool/Cornorstone,and
when they was picked to serve on the jury the Big Money knew about it.

What needs to happen is for the FBI
to come into berrien county to do a
book audited, and it should include
whirlpool books & accounts.
The County Clerk should be jailed
for lying under oath. The Judge and
Proscutor should be put up under the jail for obstrative Justice, and the Sheriff needs to be confirmed to a mental hospital.

Hopefully there will be civil law
suits in action soon against berrien county, and the City of Benton Harbor. Lets not leave Whirlpool out the picture.

Akbar, what if you do call the FBI and they do come. Are you gonna cry if a white person comes that works for the FBI from another state. What if a black man that works for the FBI comes and finds nothing wrong. Then you will say that Whirlpool must have paid him off. Get a life. Whirlpool has done nothing but put money up for good reasons. look at Harbor Shores it is going to bring 2500 Jobs here. But if a black is not somewhat in charge then you do not like it. You are the same as everyone else. This is not a white and black thing this is a oh poor me I am not someone special thing. Akbar if you want credibility then do something that is good and stop with the black poor me thing.
Rev. Pickney was convicted because he is guilty of his actions that he did. He knows it and we all know it. If he was someone so special then he would be bigger then he is. NO other REV in this community even looks to him as a REV. And the war needs to start bloggers watch it because we need to stand as one with each other and quit with violence. All that does is make everyone weaker. This site is a complete joke with arrogant people. Go about your buisness and do something that makes sense.

Let me put your mind in check real quick. First of all its my rights to call any government dept in to investigate my complaint, and there's NOTHING you can do about
my actions.
I can not help it because you dislike Rev Pinkney, and really I
don't want to hear your sad story.

I would not put anything pass whirl
pool, and how much is Whirlpool
paying you?
Where did you get that BS from that
Whirlpool have invested money into
Harbor Shores for a good reason?

A developer that's really up front
with the city would have also put
money into the re-developement of
the housing in the community, and
not run the poor blacks out of
their rented apartments or the homes they owned.

Why can't Whirlpool just focus on
the water front land? So again do
not try to force me to believe the
bs you are typing. You are the biggest damn joke I have came across in years. Whirlpool/Maytag
will create 2500 jobs if Harbor
Shores was to become a reality.

Tell me (since you know so damn much) would 2495 jobs be washing
dishes,taking the garbage out,
feeding the dogs,or wearing them little red cabby caps, and shining
shoes while being a good house
negro?

I am doing something good whenever
I sign onto this blogspot to support Rev Pinkney. In closing, you negros have proven to me that
Mr Charlie can sucker you into hating your own people.
Look at how the Judge and the Prosecutor use the black crackheads to lie against
their own people, and explain to
me the bad behavior of the sambo
Glen Yardbough.

Look at you with your(black/white) two tone self trying to correct
someone. Last week when I came to Benton Harbor. I rode through many
of the different neighborhoods
that used to look good, and now
since there is a race problem those
neighborhoods look like bagdad.

So in closing why fix up the water front when the neighborhoods is dying? and I bet you live in the
area where you can sleep with your
front door open at night.

So keep on sucking butts you are doing a great job, and don't forget to wipe that brown spot off your nose.

You know as I read these posts on here I think that some of you is out of your mind, and claiming that
Cherry is a good man you are racist
too.
There is NOTHING good about Cherry his girlfriends, Judges Maloney and Butzbaugh, or Rev Pinkney's case Proscutor.

Your ALL white judicial system in
Benton Harbor and Berrien County
stinks. Also reading some of these posts I see internet fraud. Which
means that one person is using the
Anonymous identity to post the same old bs.

Now to answer the first Anonymous question: Are you saying that all whites are racist? I would say HELL
yeah especially there in Benton Harbor/Berrien County, and allowin
a all white jury to be picked is a
sure sign of racism by whites.

In closing You white Rev Pinkney
haters. Lets put one of YOUR family memebrs in Rev Pinkney's shoes, and they trial allowed a all
Black jury to be picked.

I bet you would burn crosses on every one of them Black jury members front lawns, or you would set their house on fire. Yet you
are supporting the ALL white jury selection, and your house negros is
behind you 100%.

As long as there is people who is
racism continue to spit their venom
Racism & Hate will always be around.

It still amazes me the world you live in.

Can anyone point to cases of injustice that don't involve convicted criminals? Show me a family man with no drug abuse, no domestic violence convictions, etc. Every case so far mentioned on here involved thieves, hookers, drug dealers, drug abusers, etc.

Show me some injustice!

I want to thank BANCO for publishing my criminal webpost on this website - I have written a letter of support for Rev. Pinkney and given it to his attorney for distribution to the Judge - I was publicly castigated by an Attorney for telling the truth about Rev Pinkney's case & a District Judge in Grand Rapids told the Criminal Law Section to remove his name from the webpost because of information about Rev Pinkney's illegal jury trial. Grand Rapids courts illegally removed all People of Color from the jury rolls. I met Rev. Pinkney & his wife. I support his cause. I have current relatives that live in Benton Harbor. I am working to insure that an illegal jury trial like Rev Pinkney's does not happen again in Michigan.

Mr. Wilson, have you even read anything about Mr. Pinkney's trial? His attorney brought forth experts who sang the praises of the court system in Kent County, Michigan as being the model that the court should have followed in Mr. Pinkney's trial. Yet you claim to be an attorney and blast the Kent County system for the same abuses that are supposedly at work in Benton Harbor! You can't have it both ways. Either you are misinformed or Mr. Pinkney's lawyers were. Who is telling the truth here? In case you didn't know, Grand Rapids is in Kent County.

Berrien County continues to call
the jury service a 30 day duty
service.This is actually used by
them to scare people away.I read the junk the judge stated in herald pollution and do not know who is more prejudice.the judge or the newspaper.It was stupid.

Dear Jim Crow - I am an attorney - maybe now Kent County is better but in the recent past it finally admitted that they removed by "computer glitch" all People of Color from the Jury pool - I know that Grand Rapids is in Kent County

MOLINA said...

The scales of justice can be rigged for anyone to fail. That is a fact. Serious fraudulent/false evidence can be given to a jury by the state/county for the jury to consider/jury instruction. Anyone can be convicted when that happens. Your constitutional guaranteed jury/public/fair trial can turn in an instant to a secret trial when a prosecution witness will answer to affirm no crime occurred and the judge will immediately huddle both attorneys and court reporter and that evidence stated proof of innocence is no longer in the record. The scales of justice can be rigged for anyone to fail. Please send a donation so this warning to the public to protect themselves can be expanded .
