We no longer have justice in Berrien County, Michigan nor is the constitution being applied in the courtroom. Today, courthouses are nothing but crime scenes where innocent people are being kidnapped and held captive. Prosecutors, like Mike Sepic, withhold exculpatory evidence of the defendants’ innocence and never turn it over. Take a look at the exoneration reported in recent years, and you will see a pattern of prosecutors continuing to fight against the release of innocent prisoners who become buried alive in these prisons under this type of corruption. Defendants are given enhanced sentences by the judges after all-white juries convict the defendants with absolutely no evidence. This is happening over and over. These judges and prosecutors are motivated by something other than the truth.
The courts in Berrien County, Michigan are horrendously corrupt. This includes judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, the county clerk, the county sheriff department, and many other Berrien County personnel.
The Berrien County Clerk Sharon Tyler is required to forthwith administer to the prosecutor Mike Sepic in open court. Both Tyler and Sepic are extremely corrupt. Here is the Oath of Office officials are sworn to uphold:
I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution
of the State of Michigan. I will maintain the respect due to the court of justice and judicial officers. I will be honestly debatable under the law of the land.
I will employ for the maintaining the causes confided to me such means, only as are consistent with truth and honor and will never seek to mislead the judges or the all-white juries by any artifice or false statement of fact or witness, unless required by justice of the cause, with which a person is charged.
I will never reject from any consideration personal to myself the cause of the defense loss or oppressed or delay any cause for lucre or malice.
I will, in all other respects, conduct myself personally and professionally in conformity with the high standard of conduct imposed on members of the bar as condition for the privilege to practice law in this state.
The prosecutor is required to subscribe to such Oath of Office by signing a copy of this Oath.
The Berrien County courthouse, judges, and prosecutors have taken an Oat to follow the constitution of the United States and the State of Michigan, but the judges and the prosecutors have failed!
They have proven to be dishonest. Judges like Schrock, Cotter, LaSata, Schofield, and prosecutor Sepic do not uphold this Oath. Sepic is the main culprit responsible for a majority of the wrongful convictions in Berrien County. How does he sleep peacefully at night, or does he? Only a man with a soul could sleep peacefully after putting in a day’s work of corruption designed to ruin the lives of many defendants.
I would say Berrien County uses the Nuremberg defense: the defense that leaves one not liable for acts done at the request of a superior. The Berrien County judges and prosecutors are claiming they are just following orders and should not be held liable for their actions.
Berrien County is a fascist state: a totalitarian political ideology under which all economic and social aspects of life come under rigid government control or direction, and the state interests supersede individual interests. Judge Sterling Schrock and prosecutor Mike Sepic are fascists.
