Today we look forward to another 7 or 8 witnesses to be called by the defense. They will all have something to do with the informant files or with the death of the young women who were in a sexual relationship with Stephen Flemmi. A part of the latter issue is to show the corruption that flows through the veins of the government’s star witness, Stephen Flemmi, aka,Benji Ditchman.
The grossest thing that flows through the benji ditches in Japan or the sewers of the U.S. is clean when compared to Flemmi. There has never been a more vile person than him. I’m not using hyperbole. I’m speaking down-to-earth facts or as some would say, the gospel truth.
Put aside most of his murders committed from an early age, put aside his murdering people and then yanking out their teeth, also put aside setting off a bomb in a car to blow up an attorney or murdering a friend who fled town with him out in the Las Vegas desert, and all the other murders like shooting a man waiting at a bus stop in broad daylight, and just for a second concentrate on this.
This lowest form of life murdered a young woman who he entrapped when he was 40 and she was 17 by gifting her cars, jewelry and cash and keeping her held into a bondage to his material offerings. Not very unlike what Ariel Castro did to his three women, he used gifts as psychological bars to her ability to gain freedom. When he learned she wanted someone clean as a friend he murdered her and blamed another. This young woman had a younger sister who he also despoiled who turned to drugs to wipe out the horror of his touch and died as a drug addicted young woman. Two beautiful young woman captured in their teens by a villanous slothful pig in his 40s. That is a pretty horrid picture. But I’m not done.
This oozing slime of a man also took his step-daughter, a girl who called him father, yet he denied his paternity when confronted with it saying he was not her biological father, as if raising a child from 2 years old as one’s daughter relieves one of the name father because of a lack of blood connection, and stole her youth from her by his repeated sexual use of her, which he had the appalling gall to say was consensual, as if any girl could consent to sex with her father. She too he murdered and blamed another for her murder and tore from her head, his daughter’s head, some of her teeth to hide her identity, but did not know how many and when shown a photograph of her disinterred skull to help him refresh his recollection he refused to look at it. Her actual skull should have been put on the stand in front of him and he should have been required to look at his handy work and count her teeth.
Do you comprehend how vile this man is? Do we have words in the language to describe such a person?
But I’m not finished. There is also evidence he took his biological daughter, younger than his step-daughter, and gave her the same treatment as he gave her older sister. She too, like the younger sister of the 17-year-old girl, turned to drugs to blot out the recurring nightmares of the monster father devouring her, his offspring, to satisfy his insatiable lust, and she too, ended up being destroyed by them and dying at a young age.
Four women’s deaths directly or indirectly attributed to this man’s actions. And we’ll hear in the court today, the U,S. government arguing strenuously that the evidence of his sexual abuse of the two youngest sisters should not come into evidence against him. Yes, the same U.S. government prosecutors who called this man to testify on behalf of you and me want to keep from the jury the truth about this man. Is that something you want done on your behalf? Are you proud of your government using this man?
This is a man whose testimony your government did not need for everything he spoke about had been told by others. This is a man your government let keep more than two million dollars worth of property he gained from his life of crime and evil. The government also made sure this man who deserved the death penalty if ever anyone did escaped from it. It made his life as easy as possible in prison.
Yet it doesn’t end there. This man has testified he expects to be released from prison some day, The government has said it can’t do that because his sentence would have to be changed by a Rule 35 motion and such a motion has to be filed within a year and the year has long passed.
We are relieved until we learn there are exceptions to that year deadline which the government did not tell us about. The government says it is difficulty seeing how the exceptions would apply in this case.
What is missing in all this. What is it we need. We need an affirmative declaration by our government that it will never file any type of motion to have this man ever released from prison. We seem unable to get that. What does that tell you?
