Dover Delaware, 2012

On October 6, 2012 in Dover Delaware this blogger was confronted with claims of a lynching, an attempted lynching and a cover up that were not immediately credible ... Here is my weblog as I struggle to place in some kind of order all the information coming in since then. Although the topics in this blog have grown beyond the original case, still ongoing and unsolved to the minds of many, the focus is the same. Equal protection under the law.

Dr. Jahi Issa's false arrest case proceeds in Federal Court.

For Immediate release:

The legal team of Dr. Jahi Issa is pleased to announce that Dr. Issa’s multi-count complaint in United States Federal Court district of Delaware against Delaware State University will proceed on the counts of false arrest and defamation resulting from Dr. Issa’s March 01 2012 FALSE arrest on the pretense of needing a permit to peaceably assemble with his class for the purpose of attending a public meeting.
In addition several other counts were dismissed without prejudice and may be amended for consideration.
Dr. Issa has been exonerated in criminal court from the false charges the State of Delaware pursued against him for exposing a hate crime in Dover, namely the spreading of racist pamphlets advocating lynching containing racist language and symbols.
Since his arrest he has not even been allowed to clean out his office and retrieve his belongings to include at least 3000 books.
Dr. Issa’s criminal defense team invoked the Dred Scott ruling in his case, a ruling declaring African Americans descended from slaves as 3/5 of a person. That ruling has never been formally overturned.
Dr. Issa had no comment except to say that he was confident that his cause will prevail and a trial will expose many unlawful and unethical acts and practices on the part of the State of Delaware with the result of improving the quality of justice for all Americans.

In Delaware, they shoot Negroes

 I fully admit having plagiarized my paraphrased title from Don Ayotte who in turn took the turn of phrase from the movie "The Great Debaters.  You can read Don's article here. Part two is here.

  I am sad to bring you this follow up on  Vice President Joe Biden's home state. Despite what one generally hears about 'red states' and 'the south' regarding racism, Money Mississippi 1963 ain't got squat on Delaware in 2015.

  Five black men found hanging from 2010 and 2015 in Delaware's central Kent County are all officially 'nothing but tragic suicides'. An attack on one Henry Fordham that was an attempted lynching is officially 'unfounded'. You can read about Henry here and here.

 But enough about tragic suicides and unfounded complaints complete with unfounded corroborating 911 calls and unfounded knife wounds. This post is about shooting.

 Since August 28, 2015 in Delaware two officer involved shootings and one arrest made with a tazer are suggestive of a bias.

 Terrence Fletcher is shot running from Police in Dover on August 28. Jeff Brown reports in the Milford Beacon that the warrant for Fletcher's arrest contains a statement that detectives determined that nobody was in the yard Fletcher ran through where a handgun is found. Initially there is no search for a weapon, officer in background with hands on his head reportedly distraught and apologizing to no one in particular according to newspaper accounts.

    Fletcher allegedly confesses to having the gun and tossing it after he was shot, reportedly tells locals he threw it before he was shot. Warrant is apparently based on false probable cause, so even if confession is genuine ( highly unlikely, a relative states Fletcher was facing 'three strikes') it could all get thrown out. Does this video taken before yard was searched immediately after shooting look like a preserved crime scene with nobody present?

 Then we have the tragedy of September 23 in Wilmington Delaware where Police shoot and kill a wheel chair bound man. Jeremy 'Bam' McDole, age 28 and said to have been paralyzed and wheelchair bound for 10 years.  This video is hard to watch and self explanatory. "Give me your hands Show me your hands"/BANG!! less than a second to comply, subject isn't even looking at officer with shotgun, officer 'in fear of his life' takes fifteen seconds to even chamber another round. Three cops make no attempt to use less than lethal force, how are three men with guns drawn in fear of a wounded paralyzed wheelchair bound man with no visible weapon?  Link is to a plethora of news reports on incident.

  So given the above two examples one would think a person who discharged a semi automatic military pattern rifle, threatened police, and his family, caused a standoff and refused to put his weapon down would be shot, right? Wrong.  Mr. Kemp is not a black man, he's white. This incident happened after the shooting of Fletcher and before the killing of McDole.

"When officers arrived at the location, Mr. Kemp allegedly ran from the road into his house while firing a gun into the air.
Delaware State Police troopers, as well as a Dover Police Department K9 unit and a state police helicopter, arrived on the scene and closed Kitts Hummock Road. Police attempted to negotiate with Mr. Kemp, but he refused to surrender when troopers spotted him among bushes and tree behind his house around 5:30, Master Cpl. Fournier said.
After further discussion, Mr. Kemp dropped his firearm but did not lie on the ground, leading to police stunning him with a Taser, authorities said."

In Delaware, they shoot Negroes.

Puppies, Putzes, and Power. Is it Kent County Levy Court or Kent Kounty Levy Kourt?

 Myself and fellow activist Cathy Samardza enjoying a happy moment before getting to work. Work we don't get paid for, work we get ridiculed and even threatened for.

 Cathy, myself, Carol Furr and many others have been very vocal in trying to get accountability for our local animal control/dog control contractor. The night this picture was taken, we were about to make comments at a meeting of the Kent County Levy Court pursuant to Chester County SPCA being an interim dog control agency between FSAC/KCSPCA quitting on September 15 and the state taking over on December 31.

    Your respondent has been active on the issue of citizen's rights being violated by the dog catcher for a good three years, Cathy and others longer than that. So it's good to see them on the way out.. sort of.

  Now Kent County Levy Court has decided to swear in four former FSAC/KCSPCA officers to work for Chester County SPCA in this 'interim'. One of them being 'officer' Sandy Galloway. Highlights, had children removed from a home with a false complaint to Child Protective Services, was the person who obtained the warrant that led to her organization being nullified by statute. Bad actor.

  Commissioner Sweeney stated that he hadn't done his political career any favors by standing up to the previous contractor. Refreshing candor but still a troubling statement on many levels. Our servants are supposed to serve, not worry about political fortunes, that such a statement needs to be made is a problem. Not Commissioner Sweeney's problem alone either.

  A senior officer from FSAC hired by CCSPCA said that ACOs' weren't allowed to cite for dog at large without seeing the offense or a witness ( bullshit, it's not a probable cause misdemeanor to the best of my knowledge and super cop should know that... ) Then Sherene Lindo spoke. Awkward, she is selling her house and Delaware is going to lose a highly educated nurse, paralegal, veteran and decent American behind being arrested not once but twice on bullshit charges with no witness and no probable cause.

  At the end of the day, it is business as usual at Kent County Levy Court, Given the abuse of African Americans like Sherene Lindo, Dr. Jahi Issa, and paralegal EShed Alston, at the hands of the former Dog Control Officer coupled with the aftermath of the Le Mar Gunn election scandal, should we change the name to Kent Kounty Levy Kourt?

  Fair question, or over the top? Depends on your vantage point I reckon.

I can't handle the truth!

  August 28, 2015. I see a post on Facebook advising that there has been an officer involved shooting in Dover on South New Street. NAACP Dover Branch President La Mar Gunn was roundly abused on a couple of threads for reporting what he was told. Mr. Gunn was clear to convey that he was reporting information given to him that was not from any official source.

    I headed to New Street to find other community activists and to help keep the street calm. Sometimes that means just staying away. This time it didn't agitated people everywhere. They wanted to talk to somebody and the cops didn't want to hear it. Police held a press conference at 1630 hours.

 Later that day, Dover City Councilman David Anderson made the following statement in a FaceBook post
I hate lies. Here is the real story about the officer involved shooting on S. New Street today. The one shot was armed, would not put his weapon away, was 21, and shot in the leg."

 From the Milford Beacon -

"Officers recovered a .38-caliber handgun partially stuck into some grass and mud just north of where the shooting took place, according to the warrant. Detectives determined no one else had been present in the yard when Fletcher ran through and that the weapon had been thrown there recently as the mud on the gun still was wet."

From the official Dover Police Press release:

  "  A loaded firearm was located in close proximity to Fletcher a short time later.  "


    So how did the subject refuse to put his gun away then hide it after he was shot? Well, Councilman Anderson can't explain that one. I was roundly attacked for taking him to task for his premature inflammatory statement that might taint a jury. The thread is fascinating. Nobody could argue the facts of the case presented. I pointed out that witnesses in the area were never interviewed by police. That's pretty important to some investigators.

     Here is a cell phone video taken anonymously at the scene. Nobody is sure who shot it at this point. One person having it on their FB wall deleted it, perhaps somebody used that person's device without their knowledge or the person decided to take the video(s) down.?

  Anyway this video shows where the subject fell and if the above about being stuck to mud and grass is accurate relating to the gun, no way the subject was armed when he was shot. How do we know the gun was his? Might it be a 'stash' gun? Other importnant detail to note, yard was bone dry. Either that weapon was under something or the Police got it wet when they used a power washer to clean up blood clots. It wasn't rain. Check out the ground in this video.

 So what really happened? I can't handle the truth!! Will we ever know for sure? We need body cameras on our cops now, for their protection and ours. As of this afternoon, two days later residents at the scene report no police have taken their statements. Interesting method of investigation.

Blacks In Delaware Experience Nightmares

 B.I.D.E.N.. Name or acronym? Yes. Joe Biden is the Vice President of the United States and his home state of Delaware is the one the civil rights movement missed.  Black men hanging from trees in this state are always 'suicides'.

     Within very recent memory, two arrests of non-violent, non-criminal, African American intellectuals has driven home this point, as if the five hanging 'suicides' of five African American men in Delaware's central Kent County failed to impress such on the conscious.

  In 2012 Jahi Issa was arrested for being black at a black college where he worked. After more than two years he was finally tried for the lone count of resisting arrest, which ended in a hung jury. The state rolled the dice again and finally the judge said 'no mas' and dismissed with prejudice.

  In 2014 we had an election and Lamar Gunn won recorder of the deeds. He won at least two more counts, they finally counted the 'right way' and ended the process. The election was invalidated by a court ( appointed judges here ) and the governor, Happy Jack Markell, appointed the defeated incumbent.

  Significant to note that Gunn is a black man who insists that there is fraud in the recorder of deeds office and who won a lawsuit along those grounds.

  Enter Chris King, an attorney, journalist, and activist. Mr. King went to the Kent County building to film the recorder of deeds office and was arrested.

  Mr. King would have settled his resulting lawsuit for peanuts. but as usual our self and citizen sodomizing cretins that pass for public servants weren't having that. A trial judge that uses clever synonyms for racial slurs and ignores case law. Complicit police, witness tampering, classic racketeering.

  Now Mr. King's civil suit must do the Delaware Judicial dance o' death so we can get to Federal Court. Again, a black man thinks the Constitution of the United States applies to him in Joe Biden's state. Again, it's going to cost a lot of money, again, the very fabric of our society is offended. Again, Joe Biden is still thinking about that one scene in "Deliverance".

Chris King's motion to recuse the judge pretty much sums it all up. The judge derided him personally and ignored case law. Why is nobody in Delaware surprised? Because we know Joe!

   Don't doubt one thing, Joe knows what back in chains means, that's how Joe keeps his negroes in line!

 The specifics of case law and the specific unprofessional conduct in THIS CASE on THIS SPECIFIC MATTER can be seen along with the entire motion to recuse the judge here.

Meanwhile as the Motion shows, every other State or Federal Court in the Country allows journalist video of public officials in lobby or public meeting areas, but not Kent County Delaware, and definitely not for a negro.

Open Letter to Colonel Allen West

I started this a few years ago to keep track ofs  events as myself and one Dr. Jahi Issa embarked on a journey to bring equal protection under the law to Delaware.

  Now with Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and new protests here in Delaware I feel compelled to write. The divisiveness over Baltimore is sickening and deafening.

  We look to our leaders and they keep us at each other's throats so they can easier rape us. One prominent figure is the focus of my angst at the moment. One Colonel Allen West, one each.

  Colonel West is a republican and is popular. If he says something stupid white republicans feel shielded from charges of racism by saying "Well, I got this from a black guy.."

  His blog post "Hey Baltimore Thugs" and a meme or two from his website are horrific.

 I would like to take this opportunity to respond to Colonel West with an open letter, and would welcome any response.

 Hey Colonel West!

  With all due respect, Sir, that's the best I can do after your blanket statement on the #BaltimoreUprising. As a veteran I feel cognitive dissonance. You are my better, an officer, a formidable specimen, yet it is my sworn duty to call you out right here and now.

   Note I do not mince words or use code. You Sir are a statist piece of offal and your post denotes serious problems with your character. Nobody is condoning riots, merely pointing out that your deflection from the issues at hand is an offense to the flag I served under and the oath I took. Can't speak for your sense of duty.

  Do you think Freddie Gray has lost his liberty?  Malcom Shabazz? Fred Hampton? What should people  do when peaceful protests are ignored by vacant hollow heads  pointing to a minority of Baltimoreans and calling them thugs?


My friend Jay Stratton was killed in 2006 and the Delaware State Police aren't trying to close the case. Want to tell him what a great place this is? I don't know how you will do that but here he is, come ahead-

  You could tell his daughters or widow, better hurry one of his daughters never got over losing him and is gravely ill.  If you knew what cases get attention and which don't you MIGHT change your tune. Maybe you do know and you are simply a person of low moral character.

 Is that it Sir? You are schilling for your own gain? Pandering?

  I am impressed by the military people you mentioned in your article. I once took on a volunteer assignment at some risk and personal cost.

 Your meme about Blacks Rioting and how it can't be racism is as ridiculous as that pic of you in some kind of wanna be biker cut calling an entire city 'thugs' and 'rascals'.

   I know you can read, do so. Blacks have been part of oppression of other blacks since the first slaves arrived on these shores. DUH. Are you that stupid or are you obtuse?

  What is mostly happening in Baltimore is a people trying to find a better way. To ignore that is to cheer for more oppression, more national guard on the streets and bigger government and makes you a hypocrite.

   You Sir, have just been given a lesson by me personally. Whether or not you heed it is on you. Any heartburn I'm easy to find. Feel free to attempt a flying fornication on a motivated pastry and have a nice day. That goes for the confused horse you rode in on and especially the false flag you ride under.

They're back

  This blog has been dormant for a while. I did make the cases of Johnny Clark, Charles Conley, and Henry Fordham more widely known. Reaction for the city of Dover has been minimal, but by sheer coincidence the chief of police and mayor have both resigned....

  This morning I received the phone call nobody wants to get. Another recent death of a person, and imagine my shock at learning that the family disputes the 'official' version in the strongest terms.

 It is with a heavy heart that I bring this blog back to active status. The strange saga of Dover Delaware's Strange Fruit Continues

  Again I will be attacked for being a 'traitor to my own people', called a 'ni***r lover', probably get another one or few of those late night phone calls.

  Though the Heavens may fall, let justice be done
