Did Political Clout Subvert Justice in Wrongful Conviction Case? | David Protess
If Bonjean’s allegations are true, high-ranking officials have obstructed justice to promote a political agenda. Nothing less than a full-blown federal investigation is needed. Everyone who has subverted Stanley Wrice’s decades-long fight for freedom must be held accountable.
Seemingly fighting words … “Nothing less than a full-blown federal investigation is needed. Everyone who has subverted Stanley Wrice’s decades-long fight for freedom must be held accountable.”
But the truth is that you can substitute tens of thousands of names for Stanley Wrice’s.
Like William “Tommy” Ziegler.
Like Gary Stanley Bennett.
Like Leo Schofield.
Like Stephen Epperly.
Like Crosley Green.
And so on.
And if you change decades-long to years-long, you can add tens of thousands more names.
Like Jeffrey Abramowki.
Like Courtney Bisbee.
Like John Wesley Dobbs.
Like Davontae Sanford.
And so on.
No non-governmental organization of attorneys that I’m aware of is actually fighting for conviction corruption accountability; they’re instead fighting to maintain a tax-exempt image of seeking accountability that furthers their growth.
And certainly no governmental organization of attorneys is actually fighting for conviction corruption accountability; they, too, fight to maintain an image of seeking accountability that furthers their careers, particularly the revolving door aspect.
But the scariest aspect is the mainstream media’s participation in furthering these pretenses of seeking accountability.
Aside from his family and friends, the person fighting the hardest for Davontae Sanford is not the media, but profession hit man Vincent Smothers, who confessed to being one of the perpetrators of the quadruple homicide Davontae is serving time for.
This might make sense if a non-governmental organization hadn’t made over a million dollars exonerating another mentally-challeneged male from whom Detroit police had also coerced a false confession – DNA-exoneree Eddie Joe Lloyd.
Davontae is blind in one eye and developmentally disabled. He was 14-years-old and wearing pajamas when he approached a Detroit officer and asked what was going on after the quadruple “hit” near his home.
The reporting on Davontae’s case from now joined-at-the-hip Detroit News and Detroit Free Press was and is shallow and off-point, a prime example of self-fettering to serve political agendas ahead of the public.
And because the reporting on Davontae’s frame-up is typical of most frame-ups, and because frame-ups happen to ordinary people on an ongoing basis, we the people best keep a watchful and wary eye on those within the legislative, executive and judicial branches of local, state and federal government who seek to demonize reporters, publishers and broadcasters that tell us the truth.
