Though the findings place the case squarely into the category of political cyber-crimes that have otherwise been high-profile priorities, the lead FBI agent assigned to the Awan case was a first-year agent, and not from one of the FBI's big-guns divisions. The charges brought by prosecutors are so minor that Awan's own ...

We need to have answers on FBI's failures

This is a big deal. FBI were tipped off twice. They say they are dedicated to keeping us safe. Yet, what a screw up. The greatest law enforcement on earth had his name — Nicolas Cruz. They could have easily alerted all gun stores in the state of Florida and found out if he had purchased any guns. The people in the state of ...

After Government's Eight-year Silence
ATHENS, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2018 / Monday, The Post & Email published the first article in what will be a series detailing encounters between Athens, TN resident Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III and two officers in the Monroe County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) last Friday morning.
Prior to moving to Athens in February 2012, Fitzpatrick lived in Monroe County dating back to 2007. He was jailed on a number of occasions by then-MCSO Sheriff Bill Bivens after attempting to expose corruption within the local grand jury, sheriff's office, local police, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and Knoxville office of the FBI.
The catalyst to his initial arrest was his April 1, 2010 attempt to place the Monroe County grand jury foreman under citizen's arrest, as state law (TCA 22-2-314) prohibits any member of the grand jury from serving consecutive terms. In September 2009, Fitzpatrick inadvertently discovered that in Tennessee, criminal court judges are permitted to hand-pick the grand jury foreman and retain them for whatever time frame the judges wish, the 2008 law cited above notwithstanding. As of early 2010, Fitzpatrick was able to determine that Gary Pettway had been serving for two decades as grand jury foreman, although he later discovered that Pettway actually served for 28 consecutive years.
The practice dates back to at least 1919, when the Tennessee legislature passed a law allowing criminal court judges to select the grand jury foreman in that way despite its unconstitutionality. The U.S. Supreme Court condemned Tennessee judges handpicking grand jury foremen in 1979 and 1987, and yet, the practice continues to this day, along with numerous other constitutional violations.
Fitzpatrick is not alone in his claim that corruption in Monroe County has deprived citizens of their right to due process under the Fifth Amendment. The Post & Email has interviewed a number of local citizens who claimed that they or their loved ones were framed, arrested without cause, denied due process, and put through a sham trial
