Have They Ever Been This Frightened By Anyone?
Here's the Latest:
Pinkney's fateful trial where Judge Wiley displayed in the clear light
of day how Berrien County Court normally operates was on June 26,
nearly three months ago. Wiley called Pinkney "a con" and "a threat" with
"too much influence." The court reporter, Carlene Battista, ID#6764,
has refused to state a date or time by which the trial transcript will be
completed. Will it take more than three months to record two
Berrien County Court could be the clone of any court in
the deep south circa almost anytime. The people going through the

Here's a reminder of Atty. Buck Davis's recent chilling speech (excerpt):
“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.”
This is the county that Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm supports, and where she refuses to intervene to bring humanitarian help, aid, or any form of justice. Gov. G., this is your JOB. Promising golf courses for votes is not.
