William Mitchell is one of the men named in the Knox Lawsuit, who received inadequate counsel.

Mississippi consistently has appointed unqualified, underfunded and overburdened attorneys to represent death row inmates in their appeals, a petit...ion filed Monday with the state Supreme Court says.

The brief was filed on behalf of 15 death row inmates challenging the systemwide failure to provide them with competent counsel during their appeals after conviction.

Food for Thought Part 33, written by Robert Fisher a Pa. Death row Prisoner


Prosecutors are given absolute and qualified immunity, so they will not be held liable based on the performance of their duties. The messed up part about that is when you immunize government officials like prosecutors, judges etc. defendants who have been jerked around by their malicious acts cant be compensated for their injuries except In extreme rare cases (Il get into this farther at another time) Qualified immunity only protects these officials as long as they do not violate the defendants clearly established constitutional rights. In other words these prosecutors can put their things down, doing all kinds of rotten unsavoury unlawful tactics to ensure a conviction, with little worry about being fined, sanctioned or brought up on criminal charges. To make a long story short, prosecutors have absolutely no incentive, what so ever to actually seek justice as the laws and rules prescribe, but only to load up their score cards with victories, furthering their political careers.
In an earlier FFT article number 18 I talked about a prosecutor in Philadelphia, Pa (jack McMahon) that gave training classes to new D. A’s in Philly and surrounding counties in Pa. On how to keep black and other minorities off the juries. Although the state supreme court and federal district court eventually condemned those acts, it didn’t deter Bruce Sagel, the director of training in Philadelphia, Pa during a 1990 lecture from openly advocating the use of racial stereotypes in jury selection. I mean, these chumps are so bold and arrogant even after the McMahon tapes in the 1980's this clown in broad daylight, not even in the cover of darkness taught his class that an ideal jury is “12 Archie Bunkers” that is 12 racist white men,. Who will convict on little evidence. This only confirms that the McMahon videotapes is not an isolated incident. (Archie Bunker was on a comedy sitcom. His character on t.v. But in real life its disgusting) When this conduct is allowed to continue to jump off, it shows that the American judicial system is a complete joke!! The sad part about it is the average citizen really thinks the system is fair and works properly. It shows a pattern of racial discrimination in the Pa. Courtrooms that target the black community. It also gives another example of how these prosecutors so called officers of the court snub their noses at the judicial system in general and the basic constitutional rights of the accused.
Bruce Godschalk, a guy that was convicted of raping two women In Montgomery County Pa. In 1986 spent 15 years in prison before being freed, due to DNA evidence that cleared him. The prosecutor in that case Bruce Castor fought tooth and nail opposing his efforts for 7 years to get DNA testing done to prove his innocence before a federal court finally allowed it to happen, over Castors objections. Castor has a history of using every foul trick in the book to ensure a conviction, I know first hand because in my second trial he prosecuted me, so I'm a victim of his crooked, deplorable actions. The point I'm Trying to make in this situation is the prosecutor knew Godschalks confession was coerced which he later recanted. Castor also knew one of the victims could not even identify Godschalk and the other victims identity was shaky. The whole case was flimsy, to say the least and Castor was scared to death of the results of the DNA test, so instead of him wanting to seek justice, as his oath required, he chose to allow an innocent man suffer in prison for 15 years. What kind of monsters are we working with in the Pennsylvania judicial system!!
In another case Montco's D.A. Bruce Caster was involved, not long ago, a chef (Guy A. Sileo jr.) at the General wayne Inn, in Lower Merion, township in Montgomery county. They flipped this guys case because of an instruction that wasn’t given by the trial judge, if you read the opinion and all the issues the defense briefed and argued, this case could have been overturned for numerous other reasons. Anyone with even a “kindergarten law game” could have peeped all the injustices the defendant received at his trial, due to the prosecutors dirty tricks and unsavory acts, which are too numerous to get into now, but fortunately the appellant courts did it's job, however the new D.A. Risa Vetri Ferman appeal it to the next higher court.
The actions of this prosecutor and so many others across the country is the kind of conduct you would expect from a state hospital patient or a degenerate criminal , not from a professional elected official we trust to maintain Law and Order.
The state of Penna. Is not only infested with many crooked prosecutors, they also have plenty of judges that are no more than criminals themselves. A while back in August 2009 it was reported in the news about two Luzerne County Judges admitted to taking bribes of severel hundred thousand dollars to send juveniles defendants to a private institution. Most of the kids were not even represented by counsel. Thats crazy, these are our Judges.!!
Then more recently last year in 2011 there were reports of two other judges in Penna. Involved in altering trial transcripts. This is crazy how can a defendant get the appropriate appellant review of the issues, if the judges are removing stuff or doctoring the transcripts. A defense attorney (Noah Geary) claimed to the Pa. Last week that a Washington county judge (Debbie O'Dell-Seneea) ordered her court stenographer to alter trial transcripts in a 2008 murder case.
The other case, where the judge Rennee Cardwell Hughes was removed from a death penalty case by the state supreme court for getting her stenographer to remove a disparaging remark she made about the defendant. One of the supreme court justices called her admissed actions “Reprehensible”. I happen to know the defendant Daniel Dougherty (Doc) that judge Renee Hughes doctored the transcripts and he has maintained his innocence ever since I’ve known him and he still sits on the row as I speak due to in part the actions of this crooked judge. No one really knows how often this jumps – off. I'm sure it's not always caught. ONE thing for sure these are not isolated incidents and it occurs much too often in the courtrooms across America. How can we trust a system with all these flaws to administer the death penalty or lock people up for life or a bunch of years when tactics like what I've mentioned jumps off so regularly.
To Be continued. Power to the struggle!!

“Food for Thought” is a new series of articles that will appear on this site periodically, mostly speaking out about the death penalty, other injustices in our legal system, things effecting America and how America's program effects our global community in general. It is written by a railroaded, wrongfully convicted person (Robert Fisher) that has been in various Pennsylvania prisons, on death row, since 1988 and is currently on the row in Waynesburg, Pa.


Texas man executed for killing wife, her boyfriend

By MICHAEL GRACZYK, Associated Press – 3 hours ago

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas man condemned for fatally shooting his estranged wife and the neighbor who became her boyfriend denied killing them Wednesday, moments before he was put to death by lethal injection.

Strapped to the gurney inside the death chamber, Keith Thurmond declared, "I didn't kill my wife. ... I swear to God I didn't kill her."

His execution for the 2001 slayings near Houston came about an hour after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected arguments to halt the capital punishment, the third this year in Texas. The 52-year-old Thurmond was pronounced dead at 6:22 p.m. — 11 minutes after lethal drugs began flowing into his arms.

Thurmond's attorneys argued that lawyers representing him in earlier appeals were "grossly deficient" and that his execution should have been postponed until justices decide on a similar case in Arizona.

With his death nearing Wednesday, Thurmond blamed the shooting deaths on another man before telling prison officials, "Go ahead and finish it off."

As the drugs began flowing, he said, "You can taste it." He wheezed and snored before losing consciousness.

Food for Thought Prt 32 by Robert fisher, PA death row

Food for thought prt 32

“Wiki Leaks” is often under fire for allegedly leaking classified material. Much too often stuff our government wants to hide, not because it's classified, but things that don’t put the U.S government in the most favourable light. The founder has also been accused of a few crimes, since wiki leaks has been gang-warring with the US government, so to speak. Anyway a while back they reported that 64%of Guantanamo detainees were detained by mistake or because of the US offering substantial bounties to allies for Al-Qaeda or Taliban suspects, the idea of trusting our government to imprison people for decades in some case, based on secret untested evidence, often never reviewed by a court, should repel and shock any decent rational person, some of these detainees at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and other similar spots, some secret spots, are rounded up because a poor neighbour, in Afghanistan for example, hungry and trying to feed his family can get a nice little reward for saying he thinks the guy down the street is working with the Taliban, or Al-Qaeda, it doesn’t matter how true it is. Thats all it takes no more questions asked. Then the unsuspecting suspect is in for years of imprisonment, abuse, torture and sometimes even death. The abuse is not only water boarding and beatings, but there have been reports of food contamination and humiliation in general constantly!

The ones that are fortunate enough to get lawyers are subject to new rules that aren't common to any court of law. Its been reported that the government is now allowed to read and review all communication between the prisoners and their lawyers, which violates the attorneys client privilege by any standards.

None of these things ive just mentioned should be a surprise to any of us because of the typical everyday abuse that jumps off on a daily basis in prisons all across America. This past December 2011, prisoners in some of the Georgia prisons held a peaceful protest strike in regards to the inhumane conditions, they were enduring, they got beat down and suffered abuse at the hands of the prison guards with the full sanction of the D.O.C.

Last summer 2011, inmates at the SHU in Pelican Bay, supermax, in California refused food for 19 days, as reported in an earlier F.F.T article saying they would rather die than continue to suffer inhumane conditions. Other prisons in California, refused food in solidarity with pelican bay, also got support from across the Country.

There is a pattern of abuse in every state in America, often much of it is caught on camera, because of the arrogance of these guards, knowing not much, if anything, will happen when these incidents are reported. One of the guards directly involved in the disgusting Abu Ghraib scandal (Charles A Graner) in Iraq, where he is seen in several photos abusing and humiliating prisoners, is a product of this prison, SCI Greene, the western Pennsylvania prison that houses the majority of the states death row prisoners. Before he left for Iraq he was caught up in all kinds of beatings and abuse situations here, plus his wife filed charges against him for beating the crap out of her, so that should give you a picture of his character.

SCI Greene, has a history and pattern of abuse, dating back to when it first opened in the early 90's which is fairly new, In 1998 superintendent Ben Varner was demoted and removed from the prison, along with several commissioned officers and 42 guards for abuse in the restricted housing units. Most of the time the prisoners were handcuffed behind their backs while getting beat down!!!

This abuse is still jumping off, as I speak. There is a federal probe right now, March 2012. about a group of guards at a Pittsburgh PA, Prison not far from here, accused of tormenting and brutalizing inmates. A 60 year old guard (Harry Nicoletti) was charged with over 100 counts of felony abuses, including 10 counts of anal rape, contaminating food trays, and more;l He allegedly targeted gay, transsexual and prisoners convicted of sex crimes involving kids. 11 other guards are charged with assaults and using intimidating to keep the abuse a secret. If you believe the grand jury testimony, Nicoletti is a real sicko. Professionals routinely say rape isn’t for sex, most of the time, but it appears this dude got plenty of sexual gratification from his repeated acts. I won't get into the graphic details, but prior to his anal rape there was testimony that he felt up transgender prisoners with breast.

Another Pa prison, is under investigation for running a “fight club” guards putting inmates against each other, betting on the winner and rewarding the winners with cigarettes and commissary. This happened at a Fayette County Prison south of Pittsburgh. A letter from a guard (whistle-blower) sent to prison officials and human rights groups told of inmates receiving major injuries, missing teeth, broken knuckles, jaws, hands and more, the guard that reported it got death threats after he told.

The P.A D.O.C as other Dept of Corrections in most states routinely cover up abuse as they do other legitimate complaints by inmates. For example , whenever a prisoner files a grievance, the grievance coordinator or person that responds to it, is more concerned with backing up the officer or staff member grieved about, then trying to solve the problem. The mentality of them is that the prisoner is always lying and the guards or staff can do no wrong. Until this problem is corrected and guards and officials are held accountable, this problem will continue to exist.

To be continued Intensify the struggle.
