Rage Raids by FBI in Midwest 28 March 2010

I really hated to change the previous post's position. I have kept it as the last post, because it exemplified the status of louisiana justice.
However, the standard is breeched at will, by the "powers at be", not the "powers that be". At least, in its day, the infamous powers that be knew when to quit.

But this and this, absolutely take the cake. How on God's green earth does this continue in our life time. Baron "Scooter" Pikes was murdered, the weekend of MLK Day in Winnfield, Louisiana in 2008. That year, the klan; in the form of CrossStar, conducted a counter demonstration in Jena, Louisiana. Their march motto said no KING [referring to Dr. King]-over us. There was also a "counter" counter-demonstration, that day in 2008; if you will. Blacks & Whites against the klanish-types. Now, the Winn Parish Judicial structure is in effect, preparing to set Officer Scott Nugent & others free.
I have learned his -[Pikes]- grandmother died only recently in January 2010, never to see the justice done.

Not only that, but her burial was a struggle also. This article tells a story of a video alledged to be in existence that shows Pikes plight during the time of his arrest, torture & murderous death. I tell you, the government in louisiana is preparing to set Nugent free!

The same sort of "banana republic justice" is being meted out in Homer, Louisiana in the Claiborne Parish Judicial Process. After the case being placed in the Louisiana Attorney General's hands a "grand jury" decided not to indict officers, who quit their jobs and moved in 2009. The events surrounding the Bernard Monroe case is strange to say the least. But, for the AG to take the case, that fact; meaning something is amiss, especially so after federal involvement, a state police investigation; and no one is charged with nothing! No malfeasance, no negligent homicide, no nothing!: it's just fine to shoot & kill old men in their yards. Such gestapoism!

Grand Jury Refuses to Indict White Cop Who Killed Black Man

Friday, February 05, 2010 -Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — The case of an elderly black man who was shot to death by a white police officer in the north Louisiana town of Homer will not go to trial.

A grand jury, handled by the state attorney general's office instead of the local district attorney, returned a "no true bill" on Thursday — refusing to indict former police officer Tim Cox.

The grand jury considered and rejected charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide.

Bernard Monroe, 73, was shot outside his home by one of two white Homer police officers who had been chasing Monroe's son last Feb. 20.

Police said Monroe was armed. Witnesses dispute that.

The officers have since resigned.


No charge for La. police officer in shooting death

NEW ORLEANS — A grand jury on Thursday declined to indict a white police officer who shot an elderly black man in the small Louisiana town of Homer in a case that heightened racial tension and sparked protests.

The panel returned a "no true bill," meaning the case won't go to trial, after considering and rejecting a range of charges including murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide against former police officer Tim Cox.

Many in the rural town of 3,800 were outraged by the shooting last February of Bernard Monroe, a 73-year-old left voiceless by cancer. Police said Monroe was armed when he was shot outside his home, but witnesses said he didn't have a weapon.

The grand jury heard testimony from 20 witnesses over two days, said Kurt Wall, director of the criminal division of the state attorney general's office. The attorney general handled the case after the local prosecutor recused himself.

"We believe it was a full, complete, accurate and thorough presentation conducted at a neutral site. We respect the grand jury's decision," Wall said.

An FBI spokeswoman said the bureau is continuing to investigate the case.

The leader of the local chapter of the NAACP was angered by the decision not to charge Cox.

"I am so disappointed," said the Rev. Willie Young Sr. "When you have 12 witnesses that say the man did not have a gun and he was gunned down by police, what are you supposed to believe. We are left with the belief that police in Homer have a license to kill."

Monroe was shot by Cox last Feb. 20 after Cox and another Homer police officer chased Monroe's son through the house and shocked the younger man with a stun gun in the yard, authorities said. Louisiana State Police, which investigated the shooting, have said Cox shot Bernard Monroe several times.

Monroe, who had recently left a hospice after recovering from cancer that left him voiceless, was outside his home with about a dozen family members for a cookout when the shooting occurred.

Cox and the other officer, Joey Henry, have since resigned.

Monroe's death heightened racial tensions in the town about 50 miles northeast of Shreveport. The Rev. Al Sharpton led about 150 people in a peaceful protest march in April.

Homer Police Chief Russell Mills said Thursday night that because of the civil litigation expected to come in the case, the city attorney had advised him not to comment.

"I wish I could," Mills said. "And someday I will."

After Thursday's decision, Police Chief Russell Mills did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Claiborne Parish District Attorney Johnathan Stewart turned the case over to Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell in December 2009, saying he wanted to avoid any appearance of favoritism or conflict of interest. His office is handling other criminal cases in which Cox and Henry are witnesses, and an assistant district attorney also serves as the town attorney for Homer.
