Michael Brown’s Parents, City of Ferguson Reach Settlement Deal in Lawsuit

THE GRIEVING PARENTS OF THE DINDU NUFFINS.

The parents of “Gentle Giant” Michael Brown hit the ghetto jackpot today.

How outrageous is that?

Read the paragraph I bolded to see just how weak and cowardly the fuxated city of Ferguson, Missouri was to settle the lawsuit.

NBC News

The parents of Michael Brown, the black teenager who was shot and killed in 2014 by a white police officer, have reached an undisclosed settlement with the city of Ferguson, Missouri, in a wrongful death civil suit, according to court documents.

The amount of the settlement agreement was sealed. U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber said in an order that, “Disclosure of the terms of the settlement agreement could jeopardize the safety of individuals involved in this matter, whether as witnesses, parties, or investigators.”

Brown’s parents, Michael Brown, Sr., and Lesley McSpadden, filed a wrongful death suit against the city of Ferguson, Wilson, and the town’s former police chief in 2015.

Michael Brown, 18, was fatally shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014. A grand jury later declined to indict Wilson. Wilson in November of 2014 resigned from the Ferguson Police Department.

The shooting sparked protests around the country over the use of deadly force by police against black men. The Justice Department in 2015 cleared Wilson of civil rights violations, but in a report found a pattern of biased policing in Ferguson, a city of around 21,000 west of St. Louis.

The wrongful death suit argued that Wilson used
profane language in his initial confrontation with Brown and another person as they walked in a road, which unnecessarily escalated the situation, and that excessive force was used. It also alleged a racially-biased mentality and culture in the Ferguson police department.

Former Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson, who was criticized for his response after the shooting and his handling of protests, resigned in March of 2015. The Justice Department found that tactics used by several law enforcement agencies into the sometimes-violent protests made the unrest worse.

The amount of the settlement will be distributed among the two plaintiffs and their attorneys as stipulated in an agreement, the judge’s order says, and all claims against the city and those named in the suit were dismissed.

If things had worked out Brown’s way it would have been Darren Wilson dead instead of him.

There’s no good reason to settle the lawsuit. I believe the city would have won in a fair court.

OFFICER DARREN WILSON’S FACIAL INJURY, INFLICTED BY MICHAEL BROWN.

Latina Judge Arrested, Handcuffed, Led from Court

JUDGE LETICIA ASTACIO LED FROM COURTROOM.

This story isn’t just about an arrogant third world mind residing in the body of a judge. It’s also about a fuxated legal system that seemingly cannot bring the Latino bitch at its center under control.

Although Leticia is not allowed to sit on the bench and judge people (the horrors of being in her damn court), she continues to be paid her $173,000 a year salary.

USA Today

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — An embattled City Court judge was escorted Monday from judicial chambers in handcuffs.

Rochester court deputies and city police officers executed a bench warrant issued for Judge Leticia Astacio’s arrest last week after she missed a Tuesday court appearance related to an August drunken-driving conviction.

Astacio, a Rochester City Court judge, smiled and said hello to the gaggle of reporters waiting for her at the fifth floor elevator bank of the Monroe County Hall of Justice where officers marched her off to be processed at the nearby Rochester Public Safety Building. She returned later to the courthouse for an arraignment before Judge Stephen Aronson of Canandaigua City Court, who issued the warrant and is overseeing her drunken-driving case.

He ordered her held without bail in Monroe County Jail until a Thursday hearing. The reason she missed her court appearance last week was because she had been living in a temple with monks in the mountains of Thailand since May 3, she had texted to her lawyer.

OBVIOUSLY ONE OF AMERICA’S GREAT LEGAL SCHOLARS.

Immigration Judge Releases Wetback Criminal Claudia Rueda That Trump Had Been Trying to Deport

CLAUDIA RUEDA.

A rabble-rousing Mexican illegal has been freed without bail to roam the streets of America, while stirring up Mexicans against the idea of borders and citizenship.

Background from Heavy

Rueda’s mother was swept up in a large drug bust, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Teresa Vidal-Jaime was picked up by federal authorities “after a massive drug bust at a Boyle Heights apartment complex where she lives,” the Times reported.

During the raid, “her husband was arrested for drug possession and investigators seized more than 30 pounds of cocaine and $600,000 in cash, according to the U.S. Border Patrol,” the Times reported.

Wow! That’s some family that Rueda comes from.

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER.

But Vidal-Jaime’s daughter, Claudia Rueda, organized protests for her mother, “calling it an unlawful raid that swept up an innocent woman in a criminal probe,” according to the newspaper.

The University Times reported that Claudia Rueda “was in a Monday evening class when she heard about the raid, and immediately returned home. When Rueda arrived at the scene, she says she was subject to intimidation and both agencies did not present a warrant to her.”

The newspaper reported that ICE responded, “Border Patrol says that Vidal gave them permission to continue conducting their investigation in the apartment. In an investigation that started on the road that afternoon, agents tracked a car, suspecting that the men inside the vehicle were involved in cross-border smuggling. They ended up at the apartment complex where the men started to unload drugs from the vehicle. After immediately arresting the men, Border Patrol, with the consent of Vidal, entered the apartment which lead to the discovery of the currency in a duffel bag. Border Patrol agents then arrested Vidal upon finding out about her immigration status.”

The Heavy piece goes on to describe how her fellow Mexican radicals think she’s a fighter for justice. Blah, blah, blah.

The Associated Press reports how a federal immigration judge freed her without bail, while mocking the government’s case against Rueda.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Mexican woman was released from custody Friday while the U.S. government seeks to deport her after a judge rejected arguments she should wear a monitoring device because she was arrested twice while demonstrating in support of people in the country illegally.

Claudia Rueda, 22, plans to apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program started in 2012 under President Barack Obama that shields immigrants who came to the U.S. as young children from being deported. Her case has drawn attention because she has no criminal record and is an immigration activist.

The immigration judge, Annie S. Garcy, said holding Rueda without bond was “unduly severe” and allowed her to be released on her own recognizance. She noted Ruedas’ academic and other achievements and was incredulous when a government attorney asked that Rueda be required to wear a monitoring device.

“Wow, an ankle bracelet? Really?” said Garcy, who is on temporary assignment from Newark, New Jersey, under an administration effort to give higher priority to cases along the U.S. border with Mexico.

The government attorney, Matthew Hanson, responded that Rueda was arrested twice, once for trespassing and once for disorderly conduct.

Her attorney, Monika Langarica, said those arrests occurred during peaceful demonstrations to support people in the country illegally. She was charged in only one case and it was dismissed.

Rueda, a student at California State University, Los Angeles, was arrested on immigration charges May 18 outside a relative’s Los Angeles home in connection with what the U.S. Border Patrol said was a drug smuggling investigation.

Her mother, Teresa Vidal-Jaime, was arrested on immigration violations in April in connection with the same investigation and later released from custody. Neither Rueda nor her mother was arrested on drug charges.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it would comply with the order to release Rueda and will consider any additional requests by her attorney.

Langarica submitted legal arguments in support of Rueda that included letters from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and U.S. Rep. Karen Bass, a Los Angeles Democrat.

There’s no photo and very little information about Judge Annie S. Garcy on the Internet. I did find this reprimand by the 3rd Circuit of Judge Garcy for ruling against an illegal immigrant.

Judge Garcy apparently believes that she is a law unto herself. She should be removed from the bench for her arbitrary and capricious rulings.

One more thing. Her name sounds black to me. If she is black, that would explain a lot.

D.C. Sniper’s Life Sentences Overturned in Response to Supreme Court Ruling

The Root

A federal judge on Friday tossed out two life sentences without parole for Lee Boyd Malvo, one of two gunman convicted in the “D.C. Sniper” shooting cases in 2002.

The AP reports that U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson in Norfolk, Va., said Malvo is entitled to new sentencing hearings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that mandatory life sentences for juveniles are unconstitutional; late last year, the high court applied that case retroactively to sentences issued before 2012.

Jackson ordered the state of Virginia courts to hold new sentencing hearings.

Malvo was 17 years old when he was arrested in 2002 for a series of shootings in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia that killed 10 people and wounded three over a three-week span.

Malvo was convicted of capital murder for the slaying of FBI analyst Linda Franklin, who was shot in the head. Prosecutors sought a death sentence, but a jury opted for life in prison.

Malvo has argued that his accomplice, John Allen Muhammad, then 42, sought Malvo out and “molded” him into partaking in the heinous killing binge.

Like most mass shooters, Muhammad was a domestic abuser and allegedly started the crime spree to kill his estranged wife.

Muhammad was executed by lethal injection in 2009.

Since 2002, Malvo has been serving his sentence at Red Onion State Prison in Southwest Virginia, a “supermax” facility where two-thirds of the mostly black prisoners are held in solitary confinement, alone 23 hours per day, in 7 by 12 feet cells with slats for light.

Some readers of this story think that Malvo is going to be released. He’s not.

Prosecutors will seek another life sentence. It remains to be seen whether he will end up with a reduced sentence or still end up with life. The legal issue is that the law requiring a MANDATORY life sentence is unconstitutional.

THE WHITE KID GOT THE DEATH PENALTY.

Roger Stone: The Incredible Mr. Comey

Washington insider Roger Stone exposes the truth about fired FBI Director James Comey. Weaving together stories of narcissistic Comey’s bad behavior, Stone makes a convincing case that the nation is better off with him out of power.

Lew Rockwell

Former FBI director James Comey has a long and telling career; telling much about his rise to FBI director. Although Comey speaks stoically about following the “rule of law”, and “following in the spirit of our founding fathers”, he has shown time and again that his actions speak louder than his words. In recent times, he came under criticism for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Certainly his announcement in October 2016 that there were new Clinton emails which warranted further investigation was a serious breach of protocol. Coming so close to the elections some say, damaged her chances and could have possibly cost her the nomination. I guess we won’t blame Comey for Hillary’s loss as long as we have Trump and the Russians to blame. In fact in July 2016 Comey came under fire for giving Hillary Clinton a pass explaining there “was no intent.” His decision not to prosecute Clinton even though she was in fact guilty was generous if not curiously suspicious. Mr. Trump was severely disappointed in Comey’s decision.

Why was Comey not following his “rule of law?” It wasn’t the first time he had given a pass to the Clintons. In the mid-1990’s Comey joined the Senate Whitewater Committee as deputy director. The Clintons were being investigated for fraud in connection with a real estate deal. The Clintons were given a pass while two of their closest friends and business partners, Jim and Susan McDougal along with Arkansas Governor Jim Tucker were convicted and received prison time.

MARTHA STEWART ARREST. COMEY DID NOT GIVE HER A PASS.

Appeals Court Ruling Endangers Public Safety by Again Blocking Trump Travel Ban

DEAD KIDS IN MANCHESTER AND NOW THIS COURT RULING. OF COURSE HE’S HAPPY.

Unbelievable!

The 4th circuit federal appeals court used the “Trump made racist comments during the campaign” justification for putting millions of Americans in danger.

The rule of law and many lives have been sacrificed today on the altar of political correctness.

NBC News

A federal appeals court Thursday upheld one of two bans on enforcing President Donald Trump’s executive order restricting travel from six predominately Muslim countries.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Richmond, Virginia, voted 10-3 to uphold a ruling by a federal judge in Maryland who declared in March that the president’s revised travel order amounted to unconstitutional religious discrimination.

Campaign statements by Donald Trump, who originally called for a ban on Muslim immigration, “provide direct, specific evidence” of what motivated his executive orders — “President Trump’s desire to exclude Muslims from the United States,” the appeals court said.

The revised executive order “cannot be divorced from the cohesive narrative linking it to the animus that inspired it,” the court said in an opinion written by Chief Judge Roger Gregory.

The Justice Department urged the court to lift the ban on enforcement. It said the executive order had a legitimate national security purpose, allowing the government to assess the reliability of background information on visa applicants from six countries associated with terrorism.

But that argument, the court said, “is belied by evidence in the record that President Trump issued the first executive order without consulting with the relevant security agencies.”

After President Trump’s first executive order was blocked in court, the president signed the second one, imposing a 90-day ban on travel from Iran, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.

Judge Paul Niemeyer, writing in dissent for himself and Judges Dennis Shedd and Steven Agee, said the majority wrongly gave itself the power to “search for evidence suggesting bad faith.”

As for the government’s claim that the president acted to protect national security, the dissenters said “none of the facts or conditions recited as reasons for the issuance of the executive order have been challenged as untrue or illegitimate.”

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Thursday that the Justice Department “strongly disagrees” with the decision and would be seeking a review of the case in the Supreme Court.

Sessions added that the president’s executive order was “well within his lawful authority to keep the nation safe.”

“As the dissenting judges explained, the executive order is a constitutional exercise of the President’s duty to protect our communities from terrorism,” Sessions said. “The president is not required to admit people from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism, until he determines that they can be properly vetted and do not pose a security risk to the United States.”

There really is only one solution to the unlawful rulings issued by Obama judges. That solution is illustrated below. Let the heads of judges and journalists roll.

Flashback re Comey Firing: When Bill Clinton Fired FBI Director William S. Sessions (1993)

Scroll down the homepage or click on the links to the right to read earlier posts on FBI Director James Comey’s termination.

STEFAN MOLYNEAUX INTERVIEWS MIKE CERNOVICH ON COMEY’S TERMINATION.

The (((establishment))) has its panties in a wad over President Donald Trump’s Tuesday afternoon firing of FBI Director James Comey.

In this post, we’ll go back in time to look over President Bill Clinton’s termination of his Republican FBI Director, William S. Sessions. We’ll also take a look at some of the reaction to Comey’s firing.

Reminder: Just a week ago, Comey was the demon from Hell to the Democrat party in the United States. With his firing, the jackass party has launched a major offensive against the Trump presidency, treating Comey as a martyr, done in by the evil Nazi in the White House.

One commenter at Zerohedge weighed in on the firing of Director Comey by suggesting that the fear of God be put into the usual suspects by making Joe Arpaio the new Director. Another noted that the Assistant Director Andrew McCabe is as crooked as Comey and should go too.

1993 New York Times via Zerohedge

WASHINGTON, July 19— President Clinton today dismissed William S. Sessions, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had stubbornly rejected an Administration ultimatum to resign six months after a harsh internal ethics report on his conduct.

Mr. Clinton said he would announce his nominee to replace Mr. Sessions on Tuesday. He was expected to pick Judge Louis J. Freeh of Federal District Court in Manhattan; officials said Judge Freeh had impressed Mr. Clinton favorably on Friday at their first meeting.

Mr. Clinton, explaining his reasons for removing Mr. Sessions, effective immediately, said, “We cannot have a leadership vacuum at an agency as important to the United States as the F.B.I. It is time that this difficult chapter in the agency’s history is brought to a close.” Defiant to the End

But in a parting news conference at F.B.I. headquarters after Mr. Clinton’s announcement, a defiant Mr. Sessions — his right arm in a sling as a result of a weekend fall — railed at what he called the unfairness of his removal, which comes nearly six years into his 10-year term.

“Because of the scurrilous attacks on me and my wife of 42 years, it has been decided by others that I can no longer be as forceful as I need to be in leading the F.B.I. and carrying out my responsibilities to the bureau and the nation,” he said. “It is because I believe in the principle of an independent F.B.I. that I have refused to voluntarily resign.”

Mr. Clinton said that after reviewing Mr. Sessions’s performance, Attorney General Janet Reno had advised him that Mr. Sessions should go. “After a thorough review by the Attorney General of Mr. Sessions’s leadership of the F.B.I., she has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the bureau.”

Despite the President’s severe tone, he seemed to regret having to force Mr. Sessions from his post. He said he had hoped that the issue could be settled at the Justice Department without the necessity of using his authority to dismiss the Director, who has a 10-year term but may be removed by the President at any time.

But Mr. Sessions’s intransigence had festered into an awkward situation for Mr. Clinton.

A Republican stranded in a Democratic Administration, Mr. Sessions was appointed to head the F.B.I. by President Ronald Reagan in 1987 amid the turmoil of the Iran-contra affair. Mr. Sessions arrived as a respected judge from San Antonio, but after five and a half years in office, he leaves with his star fallen, his agency adrift and his support at the F.B.I. all but drained away. Troubled Tenure

He served under four Attorneys General, and each complained privately about his absentee management style, his frequent traveling — often to unimportant events — and his inability to take command.

During Mr. Sessions’s tenure, the F.B.I. has struggled to redefine its mission, which has shifted focus dramatically with the collapse of the Soviet empire.
