MDOC Callously Fails to Protect Imprisoned People from Harm

A 23-year-old young man from Muskegon has needlessly lost his life after MDOC failed to respond to his pleas for help and protection from a hostile cell-mate. These completely preventable murders happen frequently under MDOC's negligent administration, but in this rare instance others bravely spoke up and Detroit Metro Times broke the story. Shame on MDOC.

Inmates: Michigan prisoner killed by cellmate for being gay, guards ignored repeated pleas for help

When the Protector Becomes the Predator

Sexual violence at the hands of Berrien County Sheriff's Department has multiplied. This year we have already seen a steady trickle of news stories detailing police sexual harassment, sexual assaults, sexual torture, molestation, rape by the Berrien County sheriff deputies. The question is how far up, does sexual torture go? Does sexual torture reach as high as Sheriff Paul Bailey? Does sexual torture reach County Prosecutor Mike Sepic who refuses to arrest anyone? Does sexual torture reach Judge Dennis Wiley, Judge Scott Schofield, Judge Art Cotter, Judge Charles LaSata, Judge Sterling Schrock?

There are rumors that Sheriff Paul Bailey, may be part of the sexual torture of the women happening inside the Berrien County Sheriff Department. Over 50 women have been involved in the sexual attacks by the sheriff department deputies.

One of the victims said, "I was so terrified." The Berrien County Sheriff's Department is like organized gangster mob.

One of the deputies would drive by my house and flash his lights into my home. He would park on the corner and watch my house.
I could not go to the police in Berrien County. The police will protect and lie for each other and would put information concerning law enforcement about sex crimes under the rug.

When the protector becomes the predator, this is the police violence we are not talking about.  Their job is to serve and protect, not to sexual assault and sexually torture women.

The number one problem is when you have a prosecutor like Mike Sepic, who has no respect for women and also believes that he and the sheriff's department are above the law. In our criminal justice system, justice is totally absent from Berrien County, Michigan

All the sexual assaults and the sexual torture by the Berrien County Sheriff's Department should tell the American people something about the justice system, the people are too brainwashed to see it.The American people rush to the defense of the police and they praise prosecutors for false charges, and give the judges a free pass for sending innocent people to prison.

When the protector becomes the predator, sex offenses, sexual assaults, and sexual torture can multiply. When the sheriff, prosecutor, and judges continue to allow sexist attacks on women, they tolerate wrong doing, ignore citizen complaints and fail to supervise the Berrien County sheriff deputies. The Berrien County Sheriff's Department and the Berrien County Courthouse are in shambles. We must confront the corruption inside Berrien County.

Five More Women Sexually Tortured by Berrien County Deputies. No Arrest!

Five more women are suing Berrien County and several sheriff deputies; more sexual misconduct, more sexual torture, more sexual assaults. A federal lawsuit was filed last year by 10 of the possible 50 women, who have been sexually tortured.

The latest lawsuit filed on Monday, July 24, 2017, by Southfield lawyer Lennox Emanual on behalf of five women alleges five more deputies were employees in Berrien County when the sexual assault and sexual torture of the female inmates between 2012 and 2016 began.

Two of the five women are also named in the still pending federal lawsuit filed in 2016 in U.S. District Court. The former sheriff deputies coerced female inmates into sex and then tortured the women, in some cases after their release. In an amended complaint filed in May, one of the women said an unnamed Berrien County Commissioner had witnessed McGrew meeting with her to provide money at a public business.

In the lawsuit filed in Berrien County this week, sexual assault, sexual torture and battery, gross negligence and intentional infliction and distress on the part of the individual defendants and hostile environment on the part of Berrien County.

One woman said that between February 2014 and July 2015. Two deputies repeatedly demanded sexual favors in exchange for benefits. The deputies instructed her to pose in various sexual position, while she was jailed for various periods between 2012 and 2016, another deputy provided her with drugs and requested sex in exchange for extra food.

Another female said she was forced by one of the five deputies to pose naked and dance in front of a camera.

Another woman said that in 2015, while she was on supervised release from jail, a deputy requested sex in exchange for money and drugs. The deputy took her to his house on the pretense of offering her work and made her accompany him to a law enforcement conference in the city of Detroit and forced to sleep with him at the hotel.

Judges, Prosecutors, and Police Officers believe themselves to be superior, detached from community they are supposed to be protecting. We must hold them accountable for their actions.

Benton Harbor Schools Superintendent, School Board and Whirlpool Corporation Fire Hull Principal !

Benton Harbor School Board of Trustees fired the principal of International Academy at Hull on Tuesday, after almost an hour in closed session.

Benton Harbor School trustees made no comments before approving the termination of principal Romel Bryant, the principal who turned the school around,  by a 5 to 1 vote. Mr Bryant was doing an excellent job, improving the condition, the attitude of the students and turned a troubled school into something special.

After the meeting Superintendent Shelly Walker, a puppet for Whirlpool Corporation said the analysis done for the school board about Bryant’s performance speaks for itself. 

Mr. Bryant created a safe and efficient learning environment. He made this job number one in Benton Harbor. Mr. Bryant was what Benton Harbor School system needed, the improvement was tremendous.

Superintend Shelly Walker said, “We feel that the standard was not met by Mr. Bryant.” Shelly Walker said, “We have certain performance expectation for our employees and no one is above them, regardless if you are improving the school and helping the students.” She wanted Mr. Bryant to suspend students and Mr. Bryant refused to do so.

Whirlpool is in total control of Benton Harbor school system and wanted Mr. Bryant outside the system and he was fired.

In an e-mailed statement after the meeting, Mr. Bryant said he was disappointed by the decision to fire him. He said, “I hope that my concerns of excessive suspensions and physical abuse to students do not fall on deaf ears. Nonetheless, I would like to thank the Benton Harbor School Board and the community for allowing me to lead Hull School. It was truly an experience I will never forget. I wish everyone success going forward.”

Superintendent Walker has denied there were excessive suspensions and physical abuse, but the truth is Benton Harbor has always used excessive suspensions to help Whirlpool control the community.

We must start to educate our children at all cost and keep people, who want to help.

The City Income Tax is back on the ballot for November, it must pass

Back in 2013 Benton Harbor residents proposed a 1%  city income tax aimed at Whirlpool Corporation and all other corporations who refuse to hire Benton Harbor residence to help solve the city crisis. Whirlpool corporation and the mayor at that time, a puppet for Whirlpool, worked hard to defeat the measure through a massive campaign of lies and misinformation.

This defeat of the income tax referendum, launched an massive effort to recall the puppet mayor for Whirlpool, James Hightower. We gathered twice as many signatures required to force a recall election turning them into the corrupt election Clerk Sharon Tyler and Carolyn Toliver to verify them .

The recall election was scheduled to be held on May 6, 2014. However, at the request of Whirlpool Corporation and the puppet mayor James Hightower, the Berrien County Sheriff Department began an investigation to stop the recall election by intimidating the Benton Harbor residents who had signed the recall petition. LAW ENFORCEMENT STARTED KICKING DOORS AT 3 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING

On April 24, 2014 prosecutor Mike Sepic, another puppet for Whirlpool Corporation, decide to charge Rev. Edward Pinkney to stop the recall election.

The attack on democracy in Benton Harbor shows the corporation power structure
is determined to crush anyone who stands in their way.

Benton Harbor voters will be asked in November 2017 to approve a city income tax, after the ballot proposal was ok'd by the Benton Harbor City Commissioners on Monday July 17, 2017.

If the voters approve the proposal Benton Harbor city businesses and city residents will pay 1% on income, with non-residents, who work in the city will pay .05% tax on the portion of their income earned in the city.

Retirement, unemployment and welfare benefits, compensation for service in the armed forces along with gifts would not be subjected to the city income tax.

The Benton Harbor commissioners also approved a resolution stating that city income tax receipts will be used to repair the streets, alleys and sidewalks, and also for emergencies.

The Benton Harbor city income tax will bring in 4 million dollars every year.

Let's pass the Benton Harbor income tax.

INN World Report, NYC


Tom Kiely hosts the INN World Report out of NYC tonight and Rev Pinkney will be on, show starts at 7:30 Eastern time.

It is anticipated the Rev. and Tom will talk for about 30 minutes. You MAY have a chance to call in while the Rev. is on or at least sometime later in the program (Tom often asks for callers the last half hour of the 2-hour show which runs 7-9 EST).

Find the streaming links here:


First and foremost Christina Wilke a white resident of Berrien County, Michigan said, she feel compelled to add the disclaimer that her letter is no way political. Christina is absolutely correct, it is racist.

She also claimed, she support the constitution, if you do support the constitution of the United State of America, you would have been protesting, the Berrien County courthouse on July 11, 2017. It is obvious  you are without morals Christina.

Joe Zangaro and Ron Kienzie both knew about the corruption inside Berrien County. The murder of Martell Hadley by a Berrien County Sheriff. The 50 or more women, who was sexually assaulted by the Berrien County sheriff department and you said nothing.Former Commissioner Robert Wooley stealing more than a million dollars and you said nothing.

All the families that has been destroyed by Judge Dennis Wiley, Judge Scott Schofield, Judge Charles LaSata, Judge Sterling Schrock,Judge Art Cotter,and prosecutors Mike Sepic and James Cherry.

Berrien County justice, the measure of menand states,has been the subject of discussion over the centuries.To define justice properly, one must consider the action of man as they they affect the well being of others. We would suggest that justice can properly bedefined as the process by which each receive, what is duehim, and it does not matter, if a person is black or white. To give to others, what is due, is the essence of justice and involves the concept of duty and obligation.This is the failure of Berrien County courthouse and why you should have been protesting on July 11.

Christina Wilke, I received more than 15, 000 letters from all over the world, denouncing the corruption inside the Berrien County Courthouse, which also include more than 50 letters from St. Joseph, Michigan and 5 from Three Oak, Michigan.

One letter really got my attention from St Joseph a wealthy white resident said 33% of all Berrien County residents were good people, but 67% are bad people , liars, corrupt and racist. She said the bad people the 67% over power the 33% that are good folks by intimidating, harassing and threatening.

I find it very sad that you did not had enough compassion or morals to stand up for the women, who were sexually assulted. Christina wilke you should have joined the protest on July 11, 2017 and help stop the corruption inside Berrien County Courthouse.

The American criminal justice system , justice is totally absent.There is no such thing as justice in Berrien County Courthouse.

Judge John Donohue is not a racist judge

Judge John Donohue is not a racist. He is one of the best judges and fairest judges in the history of Berrien County. He treats Blacks and Whites fairly. He should never be considered to be unfair to any group of people.

-Rev. Pinkney

One true judge

Joseph Zangaro and Ron Kienzle will be judge by the true Judge of all judges God. There is only one true Judge that is God.Man will attempt to built up the devil, but God has the last say.

Joe and Ron should be remembered not just how they died, but how they lived. Both men knew about the corruption inside the Berrien County Courthouse justice system  and did nothing. God will let them explain and you do not get extra point for being a law enforcemen officers.All the families that was destroyed by Berrien County .

I asked Joe, if you witness Judge Wiley, Judge LaSata, or Judge Schofield breaking the law, what would you do? He refused to answer. Joe knew how bad the corruption was inside the Berrien County courthouse, but he did nothing. God is going to remember, how you lived.God is going to remember the darkness you reflected to the oppressed people in the darkest places of the world.

What would make Larry Gordon want to escape and kill anybody? What would make Larry Gordon want to kill, rathan going to trial? Larry told me he would never going to trial in berrien County, because you do not have a chance in this world.

I think this was a sucide mission, but I am not suprise. The murder of Martell Hadley by the sheriff department, The 50 or more women, who was sexually attacked by berrien County sheriff dept.You had a Berrien County sheriff Lt walking out of  Walmart with a shopping cart of groceries for over a year.The employee's know about the corruption, but turn their head to the truth. You are suppose to accept corruption by law enforcement even, if they kill a citizen, it is justified Homicide. you should accept corruption by the oppressor.God is the true judge, I can not put you in heaven or hell and you get no points for being white and working for law enforcement..

I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth To to him was given the keys to the bottomless pit.And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace.So the sun and air were darkness, because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpion of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their Foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strike a man. In those days men will seek Death and will not find it.They will desire to die and death will flee from them.{ this is the second death}

The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.They had hair like women's hair and their teeth were like lions teeth. And they had breastplates of iron and and the sound of their wings were like the sound of chariots with many  horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and  there were stings in their tails.Thier power was to hurt men five months and they had a king over  them the angel of the bottomless pit. whom name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek, he has the name Apollyon.One Woe is past, behold still two more Woes are coming.God said He is the Judge of all judges.

Join the Protest July 11 in Berrien County!

When: Tuesday, July 11, 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Where: Berrien County Courthouse (811 Port Street, St. Joseph, MI 49085)
Bring: Signs, water, friends and family

In the American criminal justice system, justice is totally absent. There is no such thing as justice in America for the poor. The criminalization of U.S. citizens by the injustice system is now one of America's largest industries. Prisons have been privatized and inmates comprise cheap labor for big corporations.

The United States of America not only has the highest percentage of its population in prison, it has the highest absolute number, substantially higher than authoritarian Chinaa country whose population is four times the size of the United States, but a country with fewer people in prison.

On July 11, we will gather at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Berrien County Courthouse (811 Port St., St. Joseph). We will march, and at noon we will protest in front of Whirlpool Headquarters. The state of Democracy is detestable, and we are not about to sit back and let it continue its course. Corporations' interests are not above the rights of every day human beings like you and me.

Whirlpool Corporation is responsible for the death of 79 people in London and we must stop the hostile takeover of the city of Benton Harbor. They must be held accountable to the people.

Let's confront the criminal justice system and the corporations that are destroying our country!
