Two weeks ago, I wrote about John Mulkey's situation and there have been some developments since then. Yesterday, Judge Ralph Van Pelt in Catoosa County found Mr. Mulkey "not guilty" for a weapons charge, although Van Pelt's editorial comments exposed the mindset of judges and prosecutors in the LMJC, where justice is a random event.
Before going further, I will note that I have heard (through the grapevine, of course) that the judges and prosecutors in the LMJC have been unhappy with my editorial comments. So be it, but I have some advice for them as well: do what is right, follow the law, stop lying and protecting liars, and stop fabricating charges and documents, and I then will stop telling the truth about the daily outrages that occur every day in the courtrooms of that God-forsaken judicial district.
Furthermore, a very prominent attorney told me earlier this year that in judicial matters, "Georgia is Atlanta surrounded by Alabama." I believe that his comments were a grave insult -- to Alabama. At least Alabama authorities refused to bring charges against Brad Wade for lack of evidence, but the LMJC of Georgia did not let non-evidence stand in the way of railroading this innocent man into prison.
So, while Judge Van Pelt and others may not like my comments, I believe they are well-founded, and if these people are not willing at least to follow the law, then perhaps they need to find another line of work for which they will not be subject to public criticism. I know none of these people; I only know their deeds.
So, let us go back to the hearing in which Judge Van Pelt, unlike "judge" Brian Outhouse, at least agreed to follow the law he was sworn to uphold. The judge said that Mr. Mulkey had not violated the law, according to the legislature. However, he added that he did not like the law, so his "not guilty" verdict was given with reluctance.
This brings us to a most interesting point, one that Van Pelt refused to address. Alan Norton, who is bringing charges against Eric Echols in defiance of a Georgia Appeals Court ruling on the very same kind of case originally was assigned to the case. (This is another example of the "We do this because we can do this" attitude that Georgia prosecutors have, despite the code of ethics handed down by the Georgia State Bar that clearly forbids this kind of conduct. However, since the Bar refuses to discipline prosecutors no matter how egregious their conduct, we can expect lawlessness from those who claim to be upholding the law.)
Because Norton could not be there, Chris "Alberto-Facebook" Arnt was the ADA bringing the charges. So, we see yet another example of how Arnt spits on the law. As I noted in my previous post, Arnt and his partners-in-crime Len "The Racist-Misogynist-The Man" Gregor had no problems suborning perjury -- and obvious perjury at that -- along with forging documents. Once again, I find it curious that a man who openly commits felonies -- and subornation of perjury and forging documents are felonies -- is permitted to claim to be "enforcing the law."
In fact, we should look more closely at Van Pelt's decision. Since it was clear that Mr. Mulkey was not breaking the law, Van Pelt should have dismissed the charges and given an apology to Mr. Mulkey for having him dragged into court in the first place. Instead, Van Pelt basically declared that while he wished he could have convicted Mr. Mulkey and sent him to prison -- even though the man is no criminal -- even he could not do that. And we are supposed to "celebrate" these moments of "justice." God help us.
Unfortunately, Mr. Mulkey's ordeal is not over. From another grapevine, I hear that the authorities are unhappy that Mr. Mulkey has chosen to publicly proclaim his innocence, as opposed to being silent and letting the police and prosecutors run all over him and destroy his rights. This is amazing. The authorities have no problem with making outrageous public statements and bringing false charges, but when a citizen directly affected by this illegal behavior speaks up, then the people in the system get up their backs and display their anger.
The "molestation" charges against Mr. Mulkey do not pass the "smell test." Furthermore, their star "witness," Mr. Mulkey's own daughter, has said the charges were not true, and that her relatives in Washington had their own ulterior motives for making the allegations.
Unfortunately, we are dealing with Georgia, and that is enough. Georgia is a state where prosecutors and judges and police are not bound by the law, and where even an admission by a judge that a defendant broke no law is Really Big News.
The players of the Georgia "justice" system remind me of spoiled children who decide to change the rules of games in order to make sure that they can win, and when they lose, they throw fits. With children, however, it really is a game; in Georgia, we are seeing the utter destruction of innocent life.
