Monumental Miscarriages of Justice continue in Berrien County, Michigan. Two stories.
Former Benton Harbor policeman Andrew Collins, controlled by Whirlpool, was arrested in 2009 for possession and intent to sell drugs, and planting drugs on over two hundred people in BH. Countless families suffer because of his false arrests ending in false convictions and imprisonments. Berrien County Prosecutor Art Cotter reversed less than fifty cases. Collins served only 7 months of a 37 month sentence, and is back in town.
Now BH has Det. Officer Wes Smigielski who is going for the throats of residents. He pays people to lie in court. When will people take a stand against Mega Corrupt law enforcement in Berrien County?
On August 3, 2008 Clarence Martin (little Clay) was killed by Dewayne Yarbrough or Ryan Reed. Yarbrough, who lives five houses away from the murder, and Reed had a fight with Martin which ended in his murder. The Yarbroughs are a "Whirlpool sponsored family" so police protect Dewayne. He was taken in for questioning only because all of BH knew he killed Martin. He was released.
To the present. Det. Smigielski framed a young man not only because he's African-American, but because the BHPD needed a fall guy for Yarbrough. He is Ronald Goodlow (Rocky). He's committed multiple armed robberies in the community, and always carries a gun. Goodlow was ordered to go to court and say that he was gambling with a Patrick Thomas and Clarence Martin when Thomas pulled out a gun and shot Martin. A total fabricated lie. Thomas was chosen because he rubs BH police the wrong way; he knows his rights and doesn't cooperate with racial profiling.
Smigielski paid Goodlow to lie under oath in exchange for getting all charges dropped for the robberies. The innocent Thomas will be found guilty because he's black.
Then there's Loren Robinson who's about to get a life sentence along with three friends. Det. Smigielski wants to save a young white man (name unknown at present) who's father is wealthy. The story starts with this white man coming to BH from Niles, Michigan for the pupose of doing drugs. He smoked over two thousand dollars worth, but didn't have money to pay the four BH men he was partying with.
He had a plan to fake a kidnapping with the threat of murder so his father would pay off his drug debt. After his father brought the money, father and son fought and police were called. They searched the man and found a large amount of crack cocaine.
Smigielski liked the story concocted by the young man from Niles and told him to tell it in court. So, four more Black men will be removed from Benton Harbor (for the purpose of redevelopment of the land) to the brutal confines of Michigan prisons.
The trial is scheduled for November.
Det. Wes Smigielski is another Andrew Collins. He must be stopped before it's too late. There are ten other cases he's worked on. We must stop him now!
