Blackwood: “Who Cares If the Grand Jury Foreman is Serving Illegally?”

“SO WHAT?”

(Aug. 19, 2014) — During the sentencing hearing for CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) at the McMinn County courthouse on Tuesday morning, Senior Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood reportedly excoriated Fitzpatrick for attempting to submit evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of government officials to the grand jury in March.
Fitzpatrick was arrested on March 18 while waiting on a bench outside the courtroom to see if his petition to the grand jury would be heard and he were required to testify.  Judge Amy Reedy, who was not re-elected on August 7, quickly appointed a new grand jury foreman, Thomas Balkom, just minutes before Fitzpatrick was arrested after the grand jury reportedly found evidence of crimes Fitzpatrick committed.
At the trial, no evidence, police report, criminal complaint, or specifics about the alleged crimes were presented.  Former grand jury foreman Jeffrey Cunningham said under oath that he had not accused Fitzpatrick of a crime, although previously, he had said that he was the victim of Fitzpatrick’s actions.
The jury convicted Fitzpatrick of extortion and aggravated perjury, despite no proof of Fitzpatrick having stated anything untruthful in his numerous petitions to the grand jury over the course of several months.  Tennessee law states that any citizen may bring evidence of wrongdoing to the grand jury for its review.
In a pre-sentencing report made public on August 11, investigator Judith Hilton-Coffman stated that “there was no victim” in the case.
In the fall of 2009, Fitzpatrick discovered that grand jury foremen serve repeated terms, having been hand-picked by the criminal court judge.  In early 2011, Monroe County court clerk Martha M. Cook told a local newspaper that the judge selects the foreman “from wherever they choose.”
Local media has not reported on the constitutional violations carried out against the community’s citizens daily.
Monroe, McMinn, Polk and Bradley Counties comprise the Tenth Judicial District of Tennessee, which is known for its police brutality, prosecutorial misconduct, rigged juries, dictatorial judges and inordinately high percentage of its citizens on court-ordered probation, parole or drug rehabilitation.
Blackwood reportedly took verbal aim at Fitzpatrick in a very person way, obviously upset that Fitzpatrick had continued to blow the whistle on the judicial corruption which has preyed on the citizens of Tennessee for decades and deprived them of their constitutional and civil rights.
Eyewitness reports on Tuesday say that Blackwood banged his fist on the bench repeatedly while exclaiming, “Who cares if the grand jury foreman is serving illegally?  So what?”
Tennessee law states that jurors must be chosen by automated means.
Another eyewitness said that after Fitzpatrick was handcuffed and was escorted out of the courtroom, someone stood up and said, “Thanks, Walt,” after which the 50 or so people in attendance stood up and clapped for “a good, long time.”  “What that tells me is that the local folks there are realizing what’s going on in East Tennessee.  They indicated they were tired of the corruption.”
The same observer told us that “the judge’s final sentencing statement was really, really sick.”
The Post & Email will be a guest on The Manning Report at 3:20 p.m. EDT to discuss the sentencing. Lt. Col. Field McConnell, USMC (Ret.), who traveled from Wisconsin to Athens on Sunday to host a prayer breakfast and barbecue on Monday and accompany Fitzpatrick into the courtroom on Tuesday, was also invited by Manning but is currently being filmed by William F. Fain, who is making a professional video of the events of the last two days and will be producing a documentary on the judicial corruption which has again landed in Fitzpatrick in jail.
Fitzpatrick spent ten days in the McMinn County jail after his arrest on March 18 and was jailed six times in Monroe County on various trumped-up charges.
Donations are still needed for Fitzpatrick’s Legal Defense Fund and for the production of the video and documentary, the latter of which can be made via Paypal to payments@thepostemail.com.
Two local news channels attended the sentencing and are expected to present reports on Tuesday.

This is a sad day for America.

Oh, wow. What else can I say, to see this in America? Athens, huh? I seem to remember another (?) Athens having a movie made out of the situation there. Fellow Americans, it is WAY past time to stand up to the tyranny in our midst, namely our own government. This is, as Debrajoe said, a sad, sad day for America. Athens needs to see every red-blooded American marching non-stop in defense of this brave man.

Same Athens.

Maybe we need a new hunting season, along with who the "critters" are that we go hunting for.

You are completely correct, we need to clean our country of the vermon, that has  taken things into their own hands. All government offices are vacant and are being held hostage, by imposters of a private foreign terrorist corporation, and we need to clean house

Just pitiful and he needs to be supported through the Defense Fund.  So sad...

IT APPEARS TO ME PATRIOTS WON BIG TIME HERE, AS PAINFUL AS IT IS TO SEE MISS JUSTICE BY AN OLD COOT JUDGE.  I HAVE NO IDEA HOW OLD THE JUDGE IS, BUT I MAKE REFERENCE TO GOOD OLD BOY MENTALITY SHOWN.  THANK GOD THIS SO FAR IS PEACEFUL.  IF THE FACTS REMAIN AS TRUE THEN THIS JUDGE IS ON HIS WAY TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE.  WE NEED MORE OF THIS TO HAPPEN, SADLY THOUGH IT REQUIRES MUCH PERSONAL SACRIFICE FOR DISCLOSURE OF THE TRUTH.

MAY GOD KEEP HIM SAFE AND MAKE HIM PREVAIL AND RESOUND A GLORIOUS VICTORY FOR FREEDOM AND TRUTH.  

RETIRED LT. COL. FIELD MCCONNELL IS AN ADVOCATE OF TRUTH, FREEDOM AND CONSTITUTION.  THIS JUDGE WILL WISH HE NEVER WAS BORN.  GO GET'M FIELD.

I'm waiting for confirmation that Judge Blackwood made the following remarks in open court “I’M TIRED OF THESE PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY’RE KEEPING THEIR OATH” and   "Who cares if the Grand Jury Foreman is serving illegally?" 

If this is confirmed then patriots need to proceed to McMinn County Courthouse in Tennessee immediately and demand the removal of Judge Blackwood and release of CDR Fitzpatrick. 

I'll be one that will go........peacefully, non-violent, lawful..........just thousands of patriots demanding justice.

Time for the militia to show up in force and escort the slimy POS Blackworm to an oak tree and deliver good ole Western justice. He must be pay the ultimate penalty for violating his oath of office and Fitzgerald's constitutional rights!

Al, you are off base and way out of line. We must not succumb to the temptation to become vigilantes as that will make us no better than the criminals in office like judge Blackwood.  Instead, we must strictly adhere to our Declaration and Constitution which prescribe the justifications and methods for taking action against tyrants in government. Yes, the judge and all those who have aided and abetted him must be held to justice, but a mob is NOT the answer.

Oh but the mobs who have usurped our most crucial offices and run them by fiat - that is entirely fine by you?  It comes to a point that no degree of lawfullness will remove those elements that clearly have a 60 year headstart on you and your goody two shoes. Still waiting for the government to take care of you?

Ass

Let's see, if the colonists subscribed to that line of thinking and no actions were made against tyrants, then we as a nation would never have been formed.  There is a time for action and a time to talk about it, around it and advocate for it.  Are you saying that you would have wished that peaceful approach upon those patriots??
