Jim Crow, Toliver, & Hightower Must Go for Corruption to End

Berrien County, Michigan  
The New Jim Crow, Election Clerk Carolyn Toliver, and Former Mayor James Hightower Must Go To Stop the Corruption

The battle is in our hands, just like in 1960, in Mississippi and Alabama, and all over the United States. I must admit to you there are still some difficult times ahead.

The latest saga in the pursuit of corporate rule that is gripping the city of Benton Harbor is led by Whirlpool corporation puppets former Mayor James Hightower, County Clerk Sharon Tyler election Clerk Carolyn Toliver, sheriff Paul (Eugene Bull Conners) Bailey, prosecutor Mike Sepic, and judge Sterling Schrock.

The recall election of Mayor James Hightower was scheduled to be held on May 6, 2014, but at the request of Whirlpool Corporation, James Hightower is working for Lakekland Hospital under Loren Hamel and the election clerk Carolyn Toliver, who broke the law and gave the recall petitions to the Sheriff's department without a subpoena, a warrant, or a court order. The recall petitions were taken out of the county without the permission or the authority. The corruption rolls on!

Prosecutor Mike Sepic takes pleasure in poisoning the Black community of Benton Harbor, which has the fourth largest prison population in the state of Michigan and is the tenth largest county. Prosecutor Mike Sepic is sworn to search for the truth, he does not know the truth. He is corrupt from his head to his toes.

This was a vindictive prosecution. I was singled out by the corrupt Berrien County elected officials because I had exercised my constitutionally protected rights. The prosecutor Mike Sepic egregious practice of failing to seek the truth to prevent the actual innocent from suffering a gross miscarriage of justice. There is no justice to blacks in Berrien County. Our broken judicial system in Berrien County continues to rear its ugly head by wrongfully imprisoning innocent black people.

I was convicted on Nov. 3, 2014 by an all-white jury that was motivated by something other than the truth. The jury of Jill Olsen, Maria Cordona, Carolyn Davis, David Dill, Allen Persk, Scott Rose, Carlia Witz, Sharlie Phillips, Mikala McCoy, Gail Freehling, Catherine Rohmer, who was a personal friend of Judge Sterling Schrock. This rogue jury that ignored the law and evidence in reaching a capricious verdict. The rogue jury based their verdict on revealed, deeply held prejudices, and was not based on a desire to achieve a just, fair or a moral outcome.

We must come to see the roots of racism in Berrien County are very deep, and there must be something positive and massive in order to get rid of all the effects of racism and the tragedies of racial injustice.

It is an unhappy truth that racism is a way of life for the vast majority of White Americans spoken and unspoken acknowledge and denied subtle and sometimes not subtle, the disease of racism permeates and poisons a whole body politic and I can see nothing more urgent than for America to work passionately and unrelentingly to get rid of the disease of racism. We must confront racism, not just in Berrien County, Michigan, but around the world.
