To give you some background for this article, the victims of the hate crimes in Meridian, Mississippi have contacted many different government and law enforcement agencies over the years, in an attempt to obtain justice, all through the proper legal channels—at times in person, at times by phone, at times by email, and at times in writing via regular mail. (The hate crimes include death threats, arson, government cover-up, murder attempts, assaults, slander, deprivation of rights, and other crimes which were committed against these victims due to their religious beliefs.) One of the recent offices that was contacted by the victims is the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Dept. of Justice in Washington, D.C. The Civil Rights Division gave them the “brush off,” and when they persisted, they were given the “runaround.” (See 25 DISGUSTING TACTICS USED BY CORRUPT GOVERNMENT UNKNOWN TO THE AVERAGE CITIZEN, and one of several letters written by one of the victims to the Civil Rights Division at the end of this article.)
Also, the victims had been told, by an FBI agent, of the following technique used by corrupt local government: When the federal authorities call the local authorities, if the local authorities say that there is nothing to the allegations, the feds say they believe them and don’t do their own investigation. This is absurd if the allegations include wrongdoing by the very local authorities that they are contacting (which is what happened in this case). (For example, you wouldn’t call up Charles Manson and ask him if he gave the order to murder Sharon Tate, and when he says no, not investigate. That is ridiculous!)
The explanation is quite clear in this situation regarding these victims: It is obvious that a “straw man” of falsehood was created by those public officials who were originally involved in the cover-up of the arson and directly involved in the slander and hate crimes. A “straw man” is false set of circumstances and story to explain away the allegations of the victims.
The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person's actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position…in other words, what the perpetrators have said about the victims and the crimes committed is not true, and they’ve hidden the evidence of the truth and have kept it from any federal authorities and higher state authorities that have come on the scene. However, the higher authorities are all too happy to play this game when it’s in their best interests. The straw man in this case is being deliberately used to deceive, among others, federal law enforcement agencies…and the agencies have been only to happy to “play along” because it absolves them of any responsibility to do any real investigating which would lead to prosecution of people whom they would rather not prosecute, for personal and/or political reasons.
IN FACT, THE MAIN REASON I LAUNCHED THIS WEBSITE IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BECAUSE THE STRAW MAN OF LIES HAD BEEN SO EFFECTIVE. PEOPLE IN ALL AVENUES OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND GOVERNMENT EITHER BELIEVED IT, OR WERE SAYING THAT THEY BELIEVED IT AS AN EXCUSE FOR NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. (AND THE MEDIA BLACKOUT GUARANTEED THAT THE PUBLIC WOULDN’T KNOW THE TRUTH, EITHER.)
THE REASON I LAUNCHED THIS WEBSITE IS BECAUSE THE DOCUMENTATION PROVES THE TRUTH AND SHOWS THE STRAW MAN TO BE WHAT HE IS—A BUNCH OF LIES. AND I CAN STATE, WITHOUT A DOUBT, THAT NO ONE IN LAW ENFORCEMENT OR GOVERNMENT HAS EXAMINED THE DOCUMENTATION ON THE WEBSITE PROPERLY AND WITH THE RIGHT ATTITUDE, BECAUSE IF THEY HAD, AN INVESTIGATION WOULD HAVE ENSUED AND THE WHEELS OF JUSTICE WOULD HAVE STARTED TURNING.
THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN NO NEED FOR THIS WEBSITE TO BE LAUNCHED IN THE FIRST PLACE. AND, IF ANY ONE OF THEM HAD DONE THE RIGHT THING, THIS WEBSITE WOULD NOT EXIST. BUT THE FACT THAT THERE IS EVIDENCE ON THIS SITE THAT PROVES THE TRUTH OF THE VICTIMS’ ALLEGATIONS, AND STILL NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE, PROVES THAT THE CORRUPTION EXTENDS ALL THE WAY UP TO MISSISSIPPI GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR’S OFFICE AND BEYOND. IF MY INVESTIGATION FROM THIS DISTANCE PRODUCED THE IRON-CLAD DOCUMENTATION FROM THE MERIDIAN, MISSISSIPPI POLICE COMPUTERS, FOR EXAMPLE, SURELY A PROPER INVESTIGATION BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR THE FBI, OR ANYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE UNCOVERED EVEN MORE.
I HAVE NOT MOUNTED ALL OF THE HARD EVIDENCE OF DOCUMENTATION FROM SUCH PLACES AS THE MAYOR’S OFFICE, AND BORDEAUX AND JONES (LAW FIRM OF FORMER CITY ATTORNEY). FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE HARD DOCUMENTATION ON THEIR OWN LETTERHEAD SHOWING THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN THE CORRUPTION.
There is no way that the Attorney General’s Office, the FBI, the U.S. Justice Department, the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department, the Meridian City Council, the Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors (or any one of the government or law enforcement agencies that the victims have been to) have looked at the documentation on this website, acting in good faith with a proper attitude towards doing the right thing. Any who did look were thrown off by politics, their own lack of integrity, and/or fear.
Basically one of two things happened:
1. They said they believed the straw man (even though they knew it wasn’t true) and used that as an excuse to not do their jobs.
2. Pure politics entered into play; it’s not easy to prosecute popular people, especially when the corruption goes back to one of the most powerful Republicans in the country—Haley Barbour.
A number of FBI duty agents said that they could see that indeed there was a problem, but they said that because of resources and other considerations they weren’t able to act. When pressed, they admitted that there were political considerations. (I read somewhere once that "people always have two reasons for not doing something--one that sounds good, and the real reason." This thought came to my mind regarding what the FBI agents said. First they said something that sounded good, and when pressed, the truth came out.)
The documents from the police computers prove without a doubt that these hate crimes were committed, and that the cover-up extends from Meridian, Mississippi to the Mississippi Governor’s Office, and that Meridian was involved in the cover-up from the very beginning. The documents speak for themselves. Anybody who is familiar with law enforcement procedures can see that, (to quote Lt. Dean Harper of the Meridian Police Department) “it goes beyond incompetence, it’s criminal.”
Unfortunately, at this time, Meridian, Mississippi, under the new administration, is perpetuating the crimes of slander, threats, deprivation of rights under color of law, and more.
It’s the same with the media; they are being thrown off by, in some cases, lies which they believe; in other cases it is politically expedient for them to say they believe the lies. The most common technique used by people who want to discredit victims of crime and whistleblowers is to lie about them. Because the police department and the mayor’s office were involved in this case, they used their credibility to lie to the media, and because the media is such a powerful tool, this caused great damage to the victims and has been and still is a great aid to the criminals.
Remember, the documents speak for themselves. These are not my opinions, Pastor Demers’ opinions or anyone else’s. Facts are facts.
As stated previously, because of this straw man which was fabricated and fostered by the former administration (headed by Mayor John Robert Smith and Chief Administrative Officer Ken Storms) and others in Meridian, Mississippi (and which continues to this day), the victims did not get the normal response from government and law enforcement agencies they have contacted. They continued to persevere in hope that someone would do the right thing according to law, and contacted the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division in Washington, D.C. A proper complaint was filed, and was rejected. Letters went back and forth as the victims persisted, but because of the straw man of lies and the corruption in Meridian, Mississippi with the police department, the former mayor’s office, and others working with them in the corruption, the victims were, of course, denied this avenue.
The current mayor and staff of the city administration in Meridian, Mississippi are continuing the denial of justice and the victimization and suffering of the victims, by ignoring what they know and by allowing the straw man of lies to stand. Meridian, Mississippi’s new mayor, Cheri Barry, has been informed that injustices and the hate crimes committed against the members, attendees, and pastor of Christ’s Church In Action are continuing to be committed and covered up, allowing denial of equal protection under the law, discrimination and slander against the victims to remain. The victims, because of this, have no equal protection under the law.
Mayor Barry has not only chosen to ignore what she knows, she also broke an oral commitment she had made with the pastor, members, and attendees of the church to sit down and meet with them all after the election. She made this commitment both before the election and shortly after the election, and she has not kept her word.
The following issue is minor in severity compared to the hate crimes which have been committed against these people, but I am including it here because in principle it shows an additional example of discrimination against them. In addition to all of those terrible things that have been done to them, they are also not allowed to attend certain public events or eat in certain restaurants due to their religious beliefs.
For example, although they are warmly welcomed in many of the restaurants, establishments, and events in that city (such as the Chilihouse, Weidmann’s, The Echo Lounge, and many other places), some people in that city with religious bias and prejudice (such as Terrence Roberts of The Gathering Place/Sidetrack Coffeehouse and Lara Hammond of SAGE Coffee House) are being allowed to discriminate against them. These restaurant owners are violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, or national origin, and they have banned anybody who goes to Christ’s Church In Action from “eating at their lunch counter.” They have also been barred from attending other events, including a food tasting event called “Sample the South,” and some concerts in Meridian. This is the same thing that was done to black people in the South years ago.
Mayor Barry, even after being made aware of all of these things, conveyed the following message to a staffer from The Arm of Justice (AOJ) who (at my direction) called Mayor Barry’s office. I am headquartered here in Rhode Island, but this particular staffer called from Malden, Massachusetts where she is located.
She called to ask if the mayor was going to do anything about the hate crimes against CCIA (its pastor, members, and attendees) or if the status quo was going to remain as is.
I had the staffer call to make this inquiry after the recent letters I had sent out to the mayor, with copies sent to her executive advisor (Kirk Thompson), and the Meridian, Mississippi city attorney (Bill Ready). (IS CHERI BARRY MERELY UNINFORMED, OR IS SHE NAÏVE, INCOMPETENT, OR PLAYING POLITICS? … OR WORSE? Meridian’s New Mayor and Administration are Admonished, Informed, and Advised Concerning the Law and Their Responsibility) The letters had been in their hands for a number of weeks, and the mayor’s office had not responded to my letters at all; the mayor had not contacted me, or any of the victims, either, though she had had ample time to do so.
The staffer had tried to contact the mayor or someone who interfaces with the mayor for a number of days, and had spoken several times with a woman named Terry. Finally on one phone call, because my staffer had been unable in several attempts to reach the mayor or anyone who interfaces with the mayor, she had told Terry the reason for her call and had asked Terry to please find a time when one of them would be available to speak to her. The next day a woman named Rita answered the phone at the mayor’s office, and told my staffer that the mayor and Mr. Thompson were both in a meeting. My staffer asked to speak with Terry, since she knew that Terry was familiar with the reason for the call.
Terry got on the phone and relayed this information to my staffer (words to this effect):
“I talked to the mayor and she told me to tell you to call the office of civil rights in Washington, D.C. She is not interested in speaking with you.”
The AOJ staffer inquired whether Mr. Thompson might be available at some point after the meeting was over. Terry replied: “He’s in agreement with the mayor.”
With this latest occurrence with Mayor Barry, she has crossed the line and proved that she is involved in the cover-up. Why is she telling us to contact the office of civil rights in Washington? Why is she refusing to speak with us? Why doesn’t she contact the federal authorities, knowing that these crimes in violation of federal law have been and are being committed in her city, including by some of the people from the old administration who now are part of hers?
When federal law is violated, of course we know that the mayor can’t prosecute—that is not her job. But she should notify the federal authorities to alert them that federal law is being violated in her city.
Does Mayor Barry think that we here at The AOJ are stupid? We know, for one thing, that her husband’s law firm, Bordeaux and Jones, was involved directly in the cover-up of the hate crimes under the old administration. Mr. Hammack, the former city attorney from the same law firm, has been directly involved in harassing and slandering the victims. (In a future feature I will be showing you a letter written on his own letterhead and signed by Mr. Hammack himself.) It’s sad that the mayor and her executive advisor have submitted to the political pressure and have become undeclared co-conspirators under the RICO act.
What is surprising to me is that a former “civil rights hero,” Bill Ready, would tolerate such injustice and violation of civil rights from a mayor he supposedly advises legally.
Basically, with her actions (and inactions) what Cheri Barry is saying to the bad guys is:
“You can get away with all kinds of crime because I am not going to do anything about any of the crimes that have been committed or the ones that are still being committed. You can get away with crime in my city, if you meet certain criteria, such as if you are a former (or present) holder of an elected/appointed office, a city employee, the publisher of a newspaper, or an owner of a restaurant, for example.
“And, because I am doing this for the former administration, this ensures me that, most likely, the crimes I commit while I am in office will not be prosecuted by the next administration! I can look the other way and be complicit in crimes by my failure to act, and no one will say or do anything! I’m the mayor! Just call me John Robert in a skirt! Hee, hee!” (Next week I will publish the last letter that I sent the mayor to show you what kind of terrible situation we have in America, that this type of being can become a mayor.)
And the great Bill Ready has already exposed himself as a phony. Maybe the ol’ guy just doesn’t have the guts anymore…looks like he’s “turned soft”; looks like he’s turned into one of the very people he used to fight against “back in the day.” It’s really too bad…thought the ol' guy still had it in him, from the good things I'd heard about him.
Meanwhile, for your information, below is one of the letters sent to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division sent earlier this year by one of the victims, Lucinda Johnson.
LETTER written by one of the victims to the Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice
BERACHOT'S NOTE: Mayor Barry’s suggestion to contact the Civil Rights Division in Washington, D.C. has already been done by the victims, repeatedly. (This is only one of several letters sent to the named office below. This is just to give you an example of what these victims go through as they get pushed around and thwarted at every turn by the system.) The Arm of Justice has also provided them with material and documentation and they have rebuffed this, also (due to the straw man discussed above). Mayor Barry has only added insult to injury by her latest move. She knows that, for example,just a simple phone call from her to the Civil Rights Division in Washington could change everything for these victims (after all, she is a mayor), but she is refusing to do anything.
Below is one of the letters written to the Civil Rights Division in Washington, D.C. by one of the victims, Lucinda Johnson, the Executive Assistant to Christ’s Church In Action. Please keep in mind that this is only one of many, many, many letters and many other attempts in other forms that these victims have made to obtain equal protection under the law and to ask that justice be brought to bear upon the perpetrators of the crimes.
Here is the letter:
May 22, 2009
Mr. Mark J. Kappelhoff
Criminal Section PHB
Civil Rights Division
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20530
Dear Mr. Kappelhoff:
I am writing in regards to our being denied equal protection under the law, the conspiracy against our rights, and the violation of our rights under color of law in the hate crimes committed against us. This is in response to your letter, dated April 22, 2009 (received on May 2, 2009), in which you state that you have not altered your “original conclusion that our complaint does not involve a prosecutable violation of federal criminal civil rights statutes.”
I must not have made it clear that we have been denied equal protection under the law, not just by the police department here locally, but by the city government, the attorney general’s office, the local FBI in Jackson, the ATF, and numerous other agencies who are supposed to investigate crime and/or protect our rights as citizens. We are talking about serious hate crimes against us including arson, assaults, threats of death, and a cover up of the arson, as well as other crimes. We have been deprived of our rights under color of law and allege that we are victims of a conspiracy against our rights. If we are not to go to you, then where are we to go? Your referrals have not proved fruitful, as I will detail later in this letter.
In the second paragraph of your letter, you state: “As you know, the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division is responsible for enforcing federal criminal civil rights statutes. Much of our enforcement activity relates to the investigation and prosecution of deprivations of civil rights under color of law.”
Yes, that is exactly why we came to you. However, your next sentence says: “These matters generally involve allegations of excessive physical force or sexual abuse by law enforcement officers.”
I don’t see where it states in the law that the deprivation of rights must include excessive physical force or sexual abuse by law enforcement officers in order for investigative action to be taken. (I’ve quoted the law, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Sec. 242: Deprivation of rights under color of law, later in this letter.)
I have enclosed some documentation for you to read, some of which you have already received in my last missive. There is some new information enclosed as well as some updates, so I would ask you to please read this information, in regards to the denial of equal protection under the law referred to, above. (Please bear in mind that the enclosed documents are only a very small part of a very large iceberg. We have had these kinds of things done to us by countless agencies/agents of government and law enforcement.)
We also allege that city government was actively involved (behind the scenes and overtly) in a conspiracy in carrying out actions against us to hinder/prevent us from exercising our constitutional rights to practice our religion. Crimes against us are ongoing to this day. I would urge you to go to the website www.armofjustice.webnode.com, even if you have already done so, and read: “Letter to the City of Meridian,” “Police Fraud & Deception” Parts 1, 2, and 3), and “Berachot’s Analysis” (articles on top left side of homepage).
In your first letter to me, one of the agencies you had referred us to was the FBI in Jackson, Mississippi. I had sent you, with my response of March 24, 2009 (and have enclosed herein), a one-page document which briefly explains that the Jackson FBI was just another “dead end” for us due to the corruption which extends all the way up to the governor’s office here in Mississippi.
In your letter dated April 22, 2009, you suggest that I have “Fire Marshall Vince Vincent contact the ATF directly in order to provide his professional opinion regarding the destruction of (your) church’s real property.” You then gave the address and phone number of the ATF Nashville Field Division. This gave me a small ray of hope because (obviously) Tennessee is not Mississippi.
There are some things of which it appears I did not make you aware: Mr. Vincent, who was the Meridian Fire Department Investigation Specialist at the time of the arson, has left the city employ and is working in his own investigative business. He had stated, to some of the principal victims in our case, that he was tired of the corruption in which, for example, he would write his reports for the fire department according to SOP and what he had learned, and then he would be told to erase his reports and told what to write instead.
Mr. Vincent has stated in the past that he felt that he couldn’t do the right thing and speak up because he would lose everything. At this point, when I contacted him, he was willing to call the ATF person at your recommendation, and tell them the truth, but he also admitted, understandably, that he is reluctant. He said he knows that now, especially since he is no longer part of the “good ol’ boy” network, he can be easily harmed. He said he knows that, for example, it would be easy for some of them to bring some kind of false charge against him and lock him up, and that he could not stand to be taken away from his children.
t this point, although Mr. Vincent was willing to speak with the ATF, as far as I know, no contact has been made. A number of problems surfaced when I tried to take the suggestion you made in your letter. (I will explain what happened, below.)
In addition, I feel that you, although your intentions may have been good, have just “pawned us off” and left us to fend for ourselves in what ended up to be another “runaround,” with a possible dead end and/or steerage right back to the corrupt local (Mississippi) agencies who “did us dirty” in the first place.
The sequence regarding my attempt to follow your suggestion is as follows:
· Mr. Duke at first tried to “put me off” by telling me that the statute of limitations had run out on the arson. I explained that if no proper investigation is done and years drag on with the investigation being stonewalled and thwarted at every turn, the authorities then cannot use the excuse of statute of limitations, because the authorities are the ones who caused it to run out! 
· Mr. Duke then, after I had pointed this out to him, changed his stance and told me that he had two avenues to suggest: he said to contact the ATF and the FBI offices in Jackson, Mississippi. I told him that they were two of the agencies that were corrupt and who had thwarted the investigation in the earlier stages. I explained to him some details regarding the corrupt actions of the ATF and the FBI locally (described briefly in the documents enclosed herein). I told him that the corruption in Mississippi is so rampant that we had to go outside Mississippi for help, but wasn’t really listening to what I was saying, and he insisted on steering me to those 2 avenues.
· Then Mr. Duke was asking me to give him Vince Vincent’s phone number, so that he could give it to the ATF in Jackson. I hesitated, because whenever we have given information out about a person who wants to tell the truth and do the right thing, that person ends up being “intimidated” in some way. I told Mr. Duke that I would call Mr. Vincent and ask his permission to give his number or have Mr. Vincent call Mr. Duke himself.
This is typical of what we have dealt with because none of you people will do your jobs and you keep “passing the buck,” and referring us to another agency (See tactic #18 in the “25 Tactics…” document enclosed herein), and that is how the time keeps going by and nothing is done.
It is my hope that you will read the enclosed and take yet another look to see if there is something YOU can do to assist us. I don’t care if you have to write a letter yourself to get us assistance. You said that you had forwarded my letter to the Nashville office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, but:
1. Nobody there seemed to know anything about my letter;
2. It wasn’t even the correct office, according to Ms. Russell.
Perhaps you will consider that the following laws were violated in our case, which does come under your jurisdiction, even though it doesn’t involve “excessive physical force” or “sexual abuse” by law enforcement officers. And, if you STILL feel that it is not your job, I WOULD ASK YOU TO INTERCEDE YOURSELF TO CONNECT US WITH THE RIGHT AGENCY AND HAVE SOME KIND OF FOLLOW-UP ACCOUNTABILITY SO THAT WE ARE NOT “TOSSED ASIDE” OR “LOST IN THE SAUCE” AGAIN.
Passing us off like a football is not going to cut it, unless you yourself do the interfacing, as opposed to telling us to do it ourselves. WE are the victims; WE are the ones who get stomped on, gagged, threatened, lied to, and treated terribly wherever we go to try and obtain the justice/relief that is due us.
You need to make some calls or write some letters yourself, and connect us with the right people, or we will just suffer more of the same. Can’t you see that we have just been re-routed back to the very people who acted corruptly in the past? Don’t you realize that Mississippi is STILL like a country of its own, just like in the 60’s when outside government agencies had to come in to solve the crime of the murders of the 3 civil rights workers? WE NEED OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT HELP!! PLEASE!!
Now I will quote some statutes:
Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Section 241, Conspiracy against Rights, and Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Section 242: Deprivation of rights under color of law.
§ 241. Conspiracy against Rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or
If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—
They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
§ 242. Deprivation of rights under color of law
Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
We allege that the crimes and the cover up of the crimes (which is a crime in of itself) are all designed (and were done with this intent) to prevent and/or hinder our free exercise of our constitutional right to freedom of religion. The above are just 2 statutes that I know of that have been violated. I am not a lawyer….it is your job to find the laws under which these people can be investigated/prosecuted. You are supposed to try and do everything you can to see that justice is done, NOT do everything you can to avoid it, and slough the people off on to someone else.
Even if you felt it was not in your scope, you should see to it yourself that we get connected with the right people and follow through, knowing that we are not only victims of crime but have been further victimized by the very agencies who were supposed to bring justice to the perpetrators and give us relief as the victims…. Even as a private citizen you should do that—not to mention that you are with the United States Department of JUSTICE.
Don’t give us a referral—we’ve had tons of those! Connect us with the right people! Don’t you understand? We are victims of serious crime who have been further victimized as “whistleblowers” of a sort because we won’t just “go away,” and we are trying to see that justice is done! We are victimized by the very people who are supposed to help us but who hurt us because they are part of the Mississippi corruption that allowed the crimes to be committed and the perpetrators to escape justice in the first place. I don’t know how many more ways I can say it.
In the case of Mr. Vincent, we hope that you people don’t consider him expendable…while you people are playing politics, there are people out here who are being hurt and who could be killed.
We hope that you don’t consider us expendable, either. WE NEED HELP FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OUTSIDE OF MISSISSIPPI CORRUPTION!
We need an independent and objective investigator to be brought in, to impartially determine whether laws have been broken and what laws, and to follow through in order to ensure the application of the laws to bring about justice to the perpetrators and relief to the victims.
Please contact me as soon as possible…time is ticking away. One of the victims here had his life threatened just a few days ago.

P.S. By the way, this was a CHURCH ARSON. Normally, the ATF, the FBI, the police, and the media would be “all over” that. How do you explain the absence of these entities in light of this fact?
Here are two quotes from recent news articles about church arsons:
“The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which responds to all church fires, is also participating in the investigation.” (“Church fire an act of arson, officials say,” Boston Globe, February 24, 2009)
“A host of federal, state, and local agencies investigated the crime, including the State Police, Springfield police, and fire departments, the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives…” (“Church arson tied to racism,” Boston Globe, January 17, 2009)
Also, media coverage of church arsons normally brings about an outpouring of public sympathy, of which we were deprived due to the media blackout which was orchestrated by somebody. There are too many unanswered questions here…why are you refusing to take any action other than to refer us to the wrong office and/or the very offices who have previously acted corruptly in the denial of justice and equal protection under the law?

State of: MISSISSIPPI
Signed and sworn to before me this ______ day of ____________, 20___
My commission expires: __________________________________________
 in response to my letter, dated March 24, 2009, which was a response to an earlier letter of yours, dated March 17, 2009, responding to an original civil rights complaint of mine filed on February 5, 2009.
 The statutes, which I have quoted in full on pages 4 and 5, use the word “if,” which is conditional, and added only when describing different penalties if the acts include such things: “…if such acts include…aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse…they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death”. The statutes don’t state that those are necessary conditions to be present for violations of these laws to be investigated and prosecuted.
 Also, Mr. Vincent told me subsequently that he thought there was no statute of limitations on arson.
 Lest you think I am being dramatic, let me remind you that a seated elected official told me and another one of the victims, on 2 separate occasions, 3 days apart: “Don’t you know that you were supposed to pack your bags and leave when they burned your house? Don’t you know what they did to Martin Luther King when they couldn’t (scare him off)? They had him killed.” And: “If I was mad at you I’d tell you to your face and hit you with a 2 by 4. Not these people…these people are sneaky. They’ll go behind the scenes, and there is no limit to their capability.”
(BERACHOT'S COMMENT: Please take note that this letter was responded to with yet another “brush off” letter, with still another tactic deflecting the responsibility of the Civil Rights Division.)
