DID THE FBI DROP THE BALL ON PEARL HARBOR?
75 Years After Pearl Harbor, the FBI Continues to Withhold Evidence
Before voters and taxpayers can set and enforce standards for
their criminal justice system they must be able to speak
and communicate in its various dialects.
By 1924, the Dallas chapter of the Klan was the largest in the nation, including one out of every three eligible men in Dallas. Dallas County voters placed Klan or Klan-supported candidates in control of the courthouse in 1922 and of City Hall in the following year. The State Fair of Texas officially designated October 23, 1923, as Ku Klux Klan Day. Two successive district attorneys were Klansmen, as were the sheriff, the police commissioner, the police chief, judges, and others. A close friend of H.L. Hunt, Lt. George Butler, the head of the Policeman’s Union in Dallas, was a member of the Klan. He once told Penn Jones Jr., a former Army colonel at Anxio and Texas liberal newspaper operator, that one half of the Dallas police force were Klansmen. Four of the Klan’s Executive Committee of Ten and at least twenty of its Steering Committee of One Hundred were members of the Dallas Chamber of Commerce.

Why Does Trump Want a New FBI Headquarters?
The FBI had/has Mafia R US branches in every major
American city.Funded by American taxpayers.
New Orleans branch
Wiseguys called him "the Keith Richards of the American Mafia," and JFK hero Jim Garrison denounced him as, "one of the most notorious vice operators in the history of New Orleans" ... but you can just call Frenchy Brouillette MR. NEW ORLEANS. MR. NEW ORLEANS tells the incredible story of Cajun country boy Frenchy Brouillette’s 50-year sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll bender as the New Orleans Mafia’s political fixer and sex racket chief. Frenchy enjoyed a glamorous, debauched life in New Orleans’ French Quarter, during the Mafia’s golden age. MR. NEW ORLEANS is the first book to break the code of secrecy in the New Orleans Mafia Family, sharing the shocking true story of America's oldest and most mysterious crime family … and revealing their potential involvement in the Kennedy Assassination.
In 2001 we brought Darruba bin Wahad to speak at Bates College
for the second time in the past 13 years. ( 1989-2002)
Our conference dealt with crimes committed by FBI agents.
Other speakers at the conference included Attorney John De Camp,
Attorney John Clarke , former LAPD narcotics detective Mike Ruppert,
Earth First activist Darryl Cherney and others
On May 19, 1971, Thomas Curry and Nicholas Binetti, two New York City Police Department officers who were guarding the home of Frank S. Hogan, the Manhattan district attorney, were fired upon in a drive-by shooting, with a machine gun. The officers survived, but were seriously injured, sustaining shots to the head, neck, chest, and abdomen.
The shootings took place during a period of intense violence between black activist organizations and the New York City police department. Two days later, NYPD officers Waverly Jones and Joseph Piagentini were shot and killed outside a housing project in Harlem.
Wahad was arrested and initially charged with robbing a South Bronx social club, and then was later charged with the attempted murders of Curry and Binetti.
Wahad's first trial ended in a hung jury; his second in a mistrial. Two years later, in 1973, his third trial resulted in a guilty verdict; he was sentenced to twenty-five years to life.
Prison and release
Wahad spent a total of nineteen years in prison. While incarcerated, he learned about Congressional hearings that disclosed the existence of a covert F.B.I. operation known as COINTELPRO. In December 1975 he filed a lawsuit against the F.B.I. and the police department of the City of New York.
As a direct result of his lawsuit, over the next fifteen years the F.B.I. released more than 300,000 pages of documents regarding COINTELPRO. The COINTELPRO documents were the basis on which Wahad appealed his conviction, and on March 15, 1990, Judge Peter J. McQuillan of the New York Supreme Court in Manhattan reversed it, ruling that the prosecution had failed to disclose evidence that could have helped Mr. Wahad's defense.
While Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau stated that he planned to appeal the ruling, and would obtain a retrial if his appeal failed, Wahad was freed and released without bail.
Morgenthau's attempt to appeal was rejected by the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, and on January 20, 1995, the Manhattan district attorney's office stated there would be no retrial, indicating that the current condition of the evidence would make this impossible.
In 1995, the F.B.I. settled with Wahad; the U.S. government paid him $400,000.
On December 4, 2000, Dhoruba's suit against the New York Police Department, seeking $15 million in damages was scheduled to begin. On December 8, 2000, the city of New York laid to rest a 25-year legal battle, and agreed to pay Wahad an additional $490,000 in damages.
JUSTICE FOR SARAYA REES
We demand justice for 14-year-old Saraya Rees in Myrtle Point, Oregon. Saraya is a child who battles with mental illness. She was abruptly and improperly taken off her antidepressants by a local pediatrician which triggered her to go into psychosis. In this delusional state, she poured a small amount of gasoline on the living room carpet during the early morning hours, as her parents and younger and younger sister slept in the next rooms. Saraya’s parents contacted Coos Health & Wellness for assistance. Rather than sending trained mental health advisors, Coos Health & Wellness called the police. Saraya was then arrested, questioned without her parents or a lawyer present, charged with attempted murder and assault, and sentenced to 11 years in juvenile prison by Judge Megan Jacquot. Saraya remains incarcerated to this day with no mental health support and will be 25 years old when she is eligible for parole. This is not justice. This is inhumane.
We demand to have Saraya’s case reopened and charges reassessed. We demand to see Coos Health & Wellness take responsibility and ensure their thoughtless actions are never repeated. We demand to see the corrective steps taken from Coos County Deputy Spencer Bell and Myrtle Point Police Officer Aaron Gilbert to ensure this never happens to an innocent child again. We demand DAs Kate McClintock and Paul Frasier admit they were wrong to pressure Saraya into a false confession when she was 13 and ill, and drop the charges against her now. We demand the release of Saraya Rees from juvenile prison and that she receives the appropriate mental health treatment for her condition. Mental illness is not a crime. Being black is not a crime. We demand justice and accountability.
Saraya Rees is a bright, beautiful, 14-year-old girl from Coos County, Oregon, who was wrongly sentenced to 11 years in juvenile prison without the possibility of parole. She will be 25 years old when even eligible for parole, having missed out on the entirety of her formative teenage years.
With a documented history of mental health struggles, Saraya had also been regularly bullied at her school, Myrtle Point High, for being biracial. Her loving parents, Shannon & Manny, were advised she be put on anti-depressants and therapy after it was revealed that Saraya had been self-harming.
On July 8th, 2019, 3 days after being improperly taken off antidepressants cold-turkey by a pediatrician who was not Saraya’s regular doctor, 13-year old Saraya went into a manic state of psychosis at 4 am. It is not uncommon to experience delusions and hallucinations which distract from normal cognitive function during psychotic episodes that can last days or weeks at a time. In her manic state, Saraya poured a small amount of gasoline from a lawnmower onto her living room floor. Her dad woke up and found her sitting on the living room floor in a daze. As recommended by her doctor, in the event she showed signs of further self-harm, Saraya’s parents called the 24-Hour Crisis Team at Coos Health & Wellness Center who they expected to pick her up. Because it was the early hours of the morning, the Crisis Center elected to call the Myrtle Point Police and Coos County Sheriff’s Department instead who stormed their house, guns drawn, and handcuffed 95 lb Saraya in front of her parents and terrified 3-year-old sister.
Coos Health & Wellness claimed that Saraya was supposed to be transported to the Bay Area Hospital but they lost track of her, indicating in Saraya’s files that they “don’t know who called the police”, and that Myrtle Point decided they “didn’t need [Coos Health & Wellness] to respond at the time since they had enough to take her to Bay Area Hospital.”
Saraya was, however, taken to the police department where she was read her Miranda rights without a parent or attorney present and informed that she was under arrest. Still, at this time, Saraya was in severe, manic psychosis and stated she just “wanted to sleep”. Instead, she was questioned further, once again without a parent or attorney, and was coerced into making statements that were later used against her in court.
The DA determined that Shannon & Manny were “victims” of Saraya’s planned “arson and intent to murder” her parents and baby sister. The DA claimed she poured gasoline all over each of them and the house. This is false. In fact, she had poured gasoline on a small patch of carpet in the living room that was later removed and taken as evidence. Saraya maintains that she never intended on lighting a fire, and that the poured gas was a cry for help. She was a young, adolescent girl dealing with a mental illness. But because her parents (who never pressed charges) were considered “victims,” they were not allowed to see or speak to Saraya for 23 days while she was held at a detention center.
Saraya was assigned Criminal Defense Attorney Kate Dyer, who not only admitted to Saraya’s parents that this was “not her area of expertise,’’ but also advised Saraya that if she pleaded guilty, ADA Karen McClintock would reduce her charges from 5 counts of Arson in the first (without ever lighting a fire) and 3 counts of Attempted Homicide to 2 counts of Attempted Homicide in the first and 1 count of Attempted Assault (dropping the Arson charges). Saraya had been experiencing sexual harassment at the detention center and wanted out immediately to a safer environment. Kate advised a guilty plea so Saraya could avoid 3 more months of holding at a center that she was abused in waiting for a trial. As a result, Saraya, at 13 years of age, pleaded guilty to a crime she did not commit. She is now in juvenile prison instead of in a facility where she can get the help she needs. ADA Karen McClintock has been bombarded with calls from citizens across the country and is now hiding behind DA Paul Frasier.
District Attorney Paul Frasier told KEZI 9 News that they determined that Saraya had a mental illness, but she was still aware of what was right and what was wrong that night. However, from many of Saraya’s statements, she thought she was screaming for her parents’ help that night and they couldn’t hear her. She was delusional. Paul Frasier has doubled down on his comments, saying he will never reopen the case for Saraya. This is the same DA Paul Frasier whose son was convicted of rape of a 13-year-old girl in 2011 but never served a single day in jail for his crime, instead did 3 years or probation with the promise of an expunged record, all because his dad is the DA. This is the same DA who wrongfully imprisoned Nick McGuffin for 10 years for a crime he did not commit and was just released from prison in February of 2020. The Innocence project stepped in and proved the state did not disclose that they had found another man’s DNA on the evidence that the state tried to pin on Nick McGuffin. ABC 20/20 covered the story and DA Paul Frasier’s egregious mishandling of the case. This is the same DA who was sued by another deputy district attorney for wrongful termination and whistleblowing after Frasier tried to dissuade him from disclosing information about unlawful activity of another deputy district attorney. Paul Fraiser settled in this case.
Coos County and its surrounding communities have a history of deeply rooted racism. Currently, the town has written “NO N***** ZONE” on the fence of the most popular beach in town. Black men have been chased in the streets with rocks thrown at them with no help from the local police. Recently, a white 17-year-old boy in nearby Winchester County took an AR15 and shot up his own home after his mother took his cell phone away. He was only charged with Mischief. In another Coos County case, a white woman with mental health issues stabbed her mother to death and was charged with Murder in the Second Degree. However, instead of jail time, she was sent to receive treatment at a mental health facility in Salem, OR. Both of these offenders were white. So why is it that a mentally ill, 13-year-old biracial girl got sentenced to 11 years in prison for not even committing the crimes she was charged with?
In April, Saraya was told by her P.O. that she would consider an early release to a residential mental health facility but her parole officer, Diana Pedregon will not consider a transfer out of the prison until Saraya has “accepted accountability.” She wants Saraya to confess to a crime she didn’t commit. That’s her only way out. To lie. Why is this person who is supposed to advocate for her, refusing to hear her? Refusing to fight for her? The system has never considered Saraya’s psychosis to be part of the whole incident and case proceedings.
Saraya had never been in trouble with the law in her life. She has been a model inmate according to the staff at Oak Creek Correctional Facility (Where she is being held in Albany, OR) .OAK CREEK CORRECTIONAL FACILITY TESTED TWICE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THEIR FACILITY this year. This is where a mentally ill child is being held and experiencing sexual and physical abuse. Earlier this year, Saraya was physically abused by another inmate leaving her bloody and bruised. Saraya spent her 14th birthday in prison. She will be 15 on Sept 20th 2020.
Shannon and Manny have not been able to see their daughter since March of 2020 because of the Covid situation. They miss their daughter terribly and want her to get the proper help she DESERVES.
