Feds on The Run!

April 21, 2009

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:

LEGAL MAIL

Charles Stephano

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.

Jill Trumbull-Harris, Story Teller

April 20, 2009

“Oh what a wicked web we weave

When first we practice to deceive”

“But then when we have practiced quite a while

how vastly we improve our style”.

“Success at trials can be child’s play

when willing to lie to win the day.”

When Little Jill and her Professor wrote the book on Mock Trials, even though she was not yet a lawyer, the authors were very careful to describe the need to be ethical while developing the story to be told at trial. There was not even a hint that a Lawyer or Law Student should ever tamper with witnesses or evidence or suborn perjury. Their method allows for being selective in the evidence and witnesses presented in support of the story, but officially frowns on truly unethical acts.

In some cases it’s really not necessary to alter the story of a person who wants to be the hero in saving the community from some dastardly villain. Once the hero learns the most important facts (which can be transmitted by a skillful interviewer who is guiding the questioning with smiles and frowns), a smart hero will pick up on the story he is supposed to tell and adapt his story accordingly so he can remain the hero.

Our Technician who discovered the kiddie porn on the computer didn’t need much guidance to develop a story compatible with the story Little Jill was trying to develop. Initially he kept on trying to tell his version of the truth at the suppression of evidence hearing but did manage to get most of his “facts” in line with the story by trial.

The biggest flaw was that he was testifying way beyond his scope of expertise. Mr Aloyo described himself as an A+ certified entry-level technician who works in a position to diagnoses and repairs computers. In no way does this qualify him to testify on the nature, appearance or cause of popup windows and browsers. Yet he said that the porn was on a browser and not a popup. Aloyo has no proven or even self proclaimed expertise in scripting for the Internet so could not make that determination. He assumed, as an armature might, that a popup is one of those miserable advertising boxes which can only be closed by clicking on the “X” in the box on the upper right. In fact the javascript code to open a whole new window involves changing the word “no” to “yes” seven times which is certainly no great programming feat. So the same code that creates advertising popups also can be used to create spawned porn browsers.

The code for a pornloader can be found here. It is not the best, it is not the worse, it is simply one that works and proves that full fledged browser can be made to pop-up all over the place. There are no porn pictures of any type used in this demonstration. It is completely safe (although annoying) and will also prove that pop-up pages do register in index.dat files and that images will be stored in cache image folders whether you requested the images or not. When browser pages load in the index.dat file you can’t tell for the most part whether it was a spawned browser, someone clicked a link or someone typed in a URL. (For this demonstration to work, the popup blocker must be turned off.)

I don’t believe Little Jill asked Aloyo to lie, I believe it just came easy for him with a little guidance from Jill.

Jill Trumbull Harris, the Pied Piper of Witnesses

April 7, 2009

You really should check the original version of both the Pied Piper Story and Trial Advocacy to see how close I stick to the title. I will get to the Pied Piper in a moment, but a pretty close description of trial advocacy is presented as it was written by Jill Trumbull Harris in a previous post.

Now her story told about Stephano was 100% consistent. The old man lived in a pig sty that only a mentally ill person could endure. He lived alone and spent every waking moment typing in URL’s of kiddie porn sites where he intentionally downloaded 40,000 porn pictures of which, 600 were readily identified as kiddie porn. This deranged 64 year old man took time to learn everything about computer security in the two months he owned the machine, his machine was fully protected and he never got hit by pornloaders or was unintentionally redirected to a site which had kiddie porn. He was just a disgusting dirty old man who liked looking at kiddie porn and if he would stop, no one would ever molest a child again as there would be no profit motive if people stopped paying for porn.

Now the problem with the story is that it never fit the facts. Obviously this deranged old man had no credit cards or memberships at pay per view sites and never used a chat room. But some evidence was on Jill’s side and that was the pictures. Every time the defense would discredit her case, she would show a few hundred really nasty pictures and the video of the horrific dump Stephano lived in. Over and over the jury was told that possession of only one picture was a criminal offense but he possessed 600. Now if the story were tried strictly on the thesis, it would be tough to beat. Unfortunately, there was a complete body of evidence that contradicted her story.

According to Jill, it is permissible to minimize evidence and contradict witnesses when they contradict your story as long as it’s done in an ethical manner. However, the question which will be explored is about suborning perjury under the guise of Homeland Security and the Protected Critical Information Infrastructure Act.

Now as the Pied Piper, Jill Trumbull Harris came to St. Croix to protect the community from perverts if only the witnesses would help her develop her story and remember things her way. It’s hard to know what siren song she sang that mesmerized her witnesses it to mindlessly following her story line and failing to tell the simple truth when asked a direct question.

It appears that Stephano’s attorney has finally presented an appeal that leaves the judge with a Faustian dilemma. The appeal is based on blatant and provable perjury. If he grants the appeal, perjury charges should follow and be directed at federally employed agents and expert witnesses.

Now Jill got a promotion and is probably above the law so it will be interesting to see who is blamed for the perjured testimony. However like the Pied Piper she will flee our community forever and leave us with memories of  her dastardly deed.

The Judge Responds

April 22, 2008

After a lifetime of public service, Judge Finch has decided to retire but he is still working until the very end of his career and beyond. He will remain a part time Judge after his nominal retirement date of August, 2008. Thus, I am really surprised at the speed of his response. His reply was dictated on April 14, 2008 for a document he recieved on April 10, 2008.

His response is as follows:

April 14, 2008

Dear [FatSavage]:

Thank you for your letter of April 8, 2008.

Since this letter is not properly before the Court as part of its proceedings, I am forced to return the same to you.

Thank you for your attention in this regard.

Sincerely,

Raymond L. Finch

The letter is obviously in standard form English which is why I’m surprised to find that I am clueless as to what the hell he means. Since the judge knows me personally and we occasionally bump into each other, I’ll have to ask him privately when I see him again. (not very often)

Oh well after a year of study, I could live with a clear cut loss or better yet, a win but in my mind, an indeterminate term in purgatory with no decision is worse than an eternity in hell.
