There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded boar (Wild Pig). They have tusks to kill, and incisors that tear the flesh from the bone. Hunting the wild boar is not a task for the weak at heart. Likewise it’s probably not too wise to piss off Federal Agents. I doubt that there is a formal written policy of domestic spying and holding people for an indeterminate term without a sentence, but when someone makes a rouge decision, those in command can either over rule the decision or ignore it and look the other way. It thus becomes sort of impossible to know how many or how few people are involved in illegal activities, how many illegal acts are taking place or who initiated them.
Now Charles Stephano’s appeal is based on the perjury of Federal Witnesses and is wicked at best. The Judge is past retirement date and way in the hither lands so he can either do the right thing or simply look the other way for another six months and dump it in the lap of his replacement. Meanwhile, Mr. Stephano is developing some potentially dangerous health issues so if the Feds just wait long enough, he could die and the whole sordid affair will be over. So it’s hard to figure out why anyone would do something very stupid in the affairs of Mr. Stephano and I guess this is just another area of the Federal Criminal Justice System that we will never figure out.
In the words of Mr. Stephano:
I received correspondence from my Legal Representative, Return Address “Law Office of Martial Webster, Attorney at Law.” It was a legal envelope clearly addressed thusly:
Reg. No. etc. etc.
Now legal Mail is considered “By the rules and by the book” as sacrosanct as the Diplomatic Pouch. Even a modicum of intelligence would dictate that legal mail is privileged in the legal sense. Guests of these Federal Detention Centers enjoy few privileges. After all they ait here to receive the Medal of Honor! One of these few privileges is the right to 100% private 2-way communications with their lawyer. This is a Law in itself: A Federal Law. People just don’t go about breaking federal laws willy-nilly, or do they?
My clearly marked legal mail had been opened before I saw or received it. Regular mail is regularly read by these federal employees – outgoing or incoming. I have no problem with that. But, my legal mail (Being Clearly identified as such) was opened, read and maybe even copied prior to my receipt of same. I’ve gone on record in protest of this clear violation or my rights.
The unfortunate little detail left out by Stephano is that he has been incarcerated in a Federal prision for more than two years without either having had his right to an appeal or even being sentaced to a specific term. Oh well maybe the Feds will get lucky and he will die in jail so they never have to defend their abuses of power.
