Sentencing News – (“Modern Day Court Lynching”)
Updated; 10/21/2022, Friday
In the United States they no longer do public lynching by trees any more against my people, other minorities and the poor.
Photo – Jesse Washington 17 year old teen was lynched on May 15, 1916 and “[h]e was chained by his neck and dragged out of the county court by observers.” Mob attackers against Washington, “[h]e was then … stabbed and beaten, before being held down and castrated. He was then lynched in front of Waco’s city hall.”
Fast forward with today’s American Criminal Justice system, consisting of camouflage alternative Barbarian Court Lynching Programs.
The same court systems using outdated laws of 400 years plus to mean America’s Federal Grand Jury proceedings.
Did you know there are only two countries that continue using Grand Jury proceedings? The United States and Libya, are the only two countries still using Federal Grand Jury Court Lynching Programs; and Defendants along with their defense counsel are locked out of the Grand Jury secret proceedings initiated by Prosecutors.
America’s Grand Jury proceedings are prejudicial from the onset, lack transparency and deprive constitutional equal protections, among other things.
The same federal criminal justice court systems where laws are on the books, that do NOT make ANY common sense, but oppress. Now I understand why my Papa and Mama loved Billie Holiday so much.
History shows that Ms. Holiday became one of the “voices for my people,” while citing protest lyrics such as: (“Strange Fruit”) and her lyric words uttered were to expose truths about lynching history of Black Americans.
“Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop.”
Lynching in trees no longer, however, replaced with America’s Court Lynching Programs, that my own eyes are witnessing.
As a consequence, I must Rise Up and Speak Out, for the protection of my own Black American Son, youths at risk, other minorities, disabled, the poor … because NO ONE is safe anymore! And “… until we value the lives, rights, and liberties of those on the receiving end of the system, “our justice system will continue to be anything but.” ~ Justice Sonia Sotomayor
“… Vital constitutional principle must not be forgotten: Liberty requires accountability.” ~ Justice Samuel Alito
“Noose Hanging” on our property during the 21st Century.
In Tribute to Jesse Washington, the late Ms. Billie Holiday, Carl Robinson & Hubby.
