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.

Dred Scott is back on the Docket in Delaware! In 2013



  I have blogged about the parallels between Dred Scott and Dr. Jahi "Dred Scott" Issa before. For those who aren't familiar with the case:

In Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1856), Mr. Chief Justice Taney delivered
the opinion of the court that included the following statement. "In the opinion of the
court, the legislation and histories of the times, and the language used in the Declaration
of Independence, show, that neither the class of persons who had been imported as
slaves, nor their descendants, whether they had become free or not, were then
acknowledged as a part of the people, nor intended to be included in the general words
used in that memorable instrument."

  I cut and pasted that from Dr. Issa's Attorney's latest communication to Judge Charles W. Welch III in the matter of Delaware v Issa. The document can be viewed in it's entirety here. https://docs.goohttps://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/550912_4201248110051_15889289_n.jpggle.com/file/d/1d5fPQTax-RHvDbxwnrXpo3sveIEF-Z2zQ-HBoflF9QEHMt5ON-aduKV3HhP7/edit

  When I was a child living in Alexandria Virginia witnessing the riots after the murder of Dr. King I had no idea what was really transpiring. After being a teenager in the 1970's, serving in the Navy, and growing up with the modern civil rights movement there was no way I would have believed that we would still be fighting this fight in 2013.

  There is no way you could have convinced me that young black men would be suspiciously hanging by their own belts from trees in the Capitol City of a sitting United States Vice Presidents home state, and no public outcry. I would have never believed that a man could survive an attempted lynching to be mocked and ignored by the local police due to his own criminal past and skin color.

 It would have been impossible to convince me that a walking abuse of public trust like Chief Downes and his little sycophant Patrolman Buchwald would be bold enough to try and cook up a false story against a professor in front of students with cell phones recording the event.

  There are no words for these two abusers of the public trust, they testified under oath that Dr. Issa struck the Chief and all that Chief Downes did was touch Dr. Issa in a 'calming manner'. Both of those assertions are disproved by a video record of the event. To wit:

 


 I would have never believed that a sitting judge would go along with this conspiracy to pervert justice. Yet here we are, in Beau Biden's state and Joe Biden's backyard discussing Dred Scott in official court documents. Attorney Sam Guy perhaps summed the case up with this paragraph from the document linked above:
But for Dr. Issa's belief that as a black man that he could exercise 1st Amendment
rights while standing near the Martin Luther King Student Center and Medgar Evers Hall
on the campus of DSU, an HBCU, where he was employed, DSU employees including
Mr. Downes would have never have illegally and offensively put his hands on Dr. Issa.

  Words fail me at this point. Hopefully I'll get my act together in time to discuss this on Sunday evening at 10:00 p.m. EST on our blogtalkradio show. You can listen to some of our shows with the embedded player on this blog or visit http://blogtalkradio.com/douglasbeatty . Thanks for stopping by.

  Dr. Issa has been financially devastated by these events. Please consider a contribution to his legal defense fund. You can use paypal at http://hbcuinstitute.org

  1. Issa is a scam artist and a radical who goes around protesting and kicking up dirt. He does not make a difference for anybody. He does not work. He is being simultaneously sued by four different entities/people currently due to his scams. Issa has mental issues and displays the signs of a megalomaniac. No one should contribute any money to any fund of his. Common sense should tell you, not to protest outside of your place of work. He lost his job on his own merit. He can't hold a job longer than a year due to his radical views and his self importance. He has about seven kids and he takes care of none of them. Don't give this man anything.

    1. It would be nice if you would produce some proof of these accusations and state your interest here. The Dr. Issa I know has held jobs for years and shouldn't have been fired here as other professors doing the same thing had not lost their jobs in the past and this is a matter of public record. There is also a person there who was cited for the same violation Dr. Issa is now charged with that didn't even lose her job, but she's a white female.
      The man I know is very involved with his children. We will have to agree to disagree. I've known this man a short time, a little over a year. I have met no shortage of folks that have known him for a decade or more. Your character assassination is actionable if you can't prove that he is a scam artist since you published this.
      Welcome to the big leagues. I eagerly await proof that Dr. Issa is a scam artist since you stated this as a fact. If this is the same Carter I think it is we are in for an interesting time. Your turn. Choose wisely, what you do now matters.
