Two years ago this blog went all-out during the Tonya Craft trial and aftermath because it was clear that cops like Tim Deal, prosecutors like Buzz Franklin, Chris Arnt, and Len Gregor, along with "judge" brian outhouse were knowingly trying to railroad an innocent person into prison. The not-guilty verdict and jurors' comments afterward about the outright crookedness of that trial apparently have had no effect on the LMJC crowd except to make them even more determined to get away with lawlessness.
Today, it is Joe Mowish, who has been arrested again on "gambling" charges when, in fact, that Franklin knows that Mowish's activities are legal. This is not a situation of a prosecutor and police misreading the law or misunderstanding it. No, this is a pure power play that is illegal and in a place where the law was respected would lead to disbarment of Buzz Franklin and his staff.
Because the Georgia State Bar does not consider prosecutorial misconduct to be something worth investigating, any actions to deal with the dishonesty and outright lawbreaking of Franklin, outhouse, and Deal are going to have to come from the citizens at large. That means that jurors should be hyper-careful when prosecutors lie, when Deal and others in "law enforcement" testify, and when people like outhouse make outrageous ruling.
There are a number of cases in the LMJC that have come to my attention and I will be looking into them. From what I can see, as long as the people who live in Dade, Chattooga, Walker, and Catoosa counties are happy with the kind of people who are in public office, we also can expect the kind of dishonest and illegal behavior we saw with the Craft case and everything else that these people foist upon the innocent.
