1. During my recent trial in the Berrien County Courthouse, St. Joseph, Michigan,
there were several very unusual occurences:
1) a family member of the county clerk, Louise Stein, was on the jury
2) the jury foreman and two other jury members were employees of Whirlpool - this is a conflict of interests since BANCO and myself have initiated a boycott of the corporation
3) the bailiff took the jury foreman to see the prosecutor during the trial, and then took him back to the jury room.
I saw this happening while the jury was in deliberation and notified my attorney of this who told the judge. The judge then was forced into swearing in the bailiff (so that he could be questioned under oath).
2. Please take a look at The People's Tribune to see coverage on the situation in Benton Harbor, and to see what honest reporting looks like. This paper is doing a great job of reporting what's really happening to America.
3. I believe that my trial outcome was a victory for Benton Harbor, the state, and the US because it shows that we can all stand up and fight the lies and corruption before it's too late. It also proved that judge Maloney, prosecutor Cherry, and commissioner Yarbrough all lied.
