The best description of the day of the upcoming sentencing is that it will go down as perhaps one of the most horrible days in the history of justice in the United States. It is a day when vengeful prosecutors on a crusade thwart justice to such an extent that no case in the justice system in the United States – excepting perhaps some of those involving blacks in the state courts during the Jim Crow days – can claim to come one-two to it in showing the how a justice system can turn barbaric. Judges, some of whom come from the same U.S. attorney’s office as the prosecutors, complacently sit back in the smiling spirit of good fellowship and rubber stamp the vile proceedings forgetting their roles in the interests of amiability.
I’ve written about this injustice until I’m blue in the face. If interested you may conduct a search of my blog. Simply put: a woman who was this guy’s girlfriend for years when he took off for the Big Run went with him. He ran from an indictment charging him with racketeering involving gambling and loan sharking. The woman stayed with him during the time of his flight that lasted 16 years. Neither she, nor the prosecutors, at the time she fled had any idea her boyfriend was going to be accused of murdering people.
Later when the prosecutors were handling out deals to murderers to have them include her boyfriend in their murders it was first learned he may have been involved in some of them. The truth though was that the people who testified against him pulled the triggers in most of them and had the motives to do the murders.
One guy admitted to murdering 20 people. He would also go on the lam for 16 years. Nothing would happen to the woman who succored him during that time. This guy did 12 years and got a thousand dollars from the prosecutors for each of the victims he admitted murdering when released from prison.
Another guy admitted murdering five people that he told us about. He made her boy friend the heavy in each murder even where he had the main motive in at least one of them. He did 5 years, one for each murder. He was given back his lottery winnings which had been forfeited.
A third, a Mafia king and known murderer, who was never punished for them, perjured himself during another trial. He did little or no federal time and the prosecutors dropped the perjury charge. After all, he perjured himself helping the prosecutors.
The worst of the bunch murdered two women he had relations with but said the boyfriend made him do it. You are supposed to believe a guy who has been living with a women for over a half-dozen years strangles her after she says she wants to break up because he was told to do it by another guy. This worst guy, Benji, would be taken out of the Bureau of Prison system. he would be hidden in some soft, safe place and allowed to keep much of his assets.
Three others at the top of my head were all involved in murders but to make the deals with those I already wrote about the prosecutors gave them a pass. Then, if you go through my blog you will see how other Mafia kingpins and murderers got sentences of between 5 and 7 years; some were even FBI informants while murdering people.
The girlfriend – who murdered no one, who committed no violent crime, whose crimes related to being the girlfriend – and by the way during the 16 years she was with the boyfriend this so-called personification of evil is not known to have committed any violent acts – got eight years in prison from the federal judges who let victims of her boyfriend’s alleged murders come in to court and excoriate her in open court. She got more time than the murderers.
After being sentence she was dragged back by the masochistic prosecutors who demanded she answer what she did while with Whitey. She refused. The prosecutors now wants her to do more prison time for not telling them whatever they wants to know about her private life with the boyfriend. Have you ever known a woman being forced to disclose her relationship with another person before a grand jury? Because she was his girlfriend the prosecutors want to pry into her most intimate matters. She refuses to be bullied and subject to such humiliation.
Imagine that you could be forced to tell about your closely held private dealings with your friend. Worse, few if any none of the people convicted of murder, terrorism or any other federal crime have been called back after their sentences and threatened with contempt if they did not disclose others involved in their criminal activity nevermind their relationship with others.
The treatment of this woman is far beyond the pale. It can only remind one of the Soviet Gulag system where selective prosecutions took place and the people the prosecutors did not like were severely punished not for their crimes but to please the sadistic desires of the prosecutors.
The most appalling thing is the silence of the media. This huge injustice when compared to any other case ever tried in the federal court gets reported on as if it is just another case. How can it be that those in the media who write so weepingly about someone being deprived of a civil right that affects neither life or limb but only feelings are unable to see the horror unfolding under their noses?
Let’s make it simple. This non-violent girl friend has already done more hard time than all her boy friend fellow murderers. When sentenced this week she will do more time than a guy who murdered twenty people including three people at one time. Appropriate to this happening is Edvard Munch.
