Drunk Detectives, Lawless Wardens Mar Marine Gun Case

Published

on

Damning information has now surfaced regarding the Westland Police and the jail guards regarding their treatment of Joey Nelson and his attorney.

Joey Nelson’s father, Steve Nelson, made this post on his personal facebook page:

On Saturday January 6th @ 1:00 am, a stranger tried to break into my 28 year old sons home.
He is an active duty Marine & has never been in trouble.
He was shot.
He was arrested by the Westland police and asked for a lawyer, by 2:00 am.
The detective that was on scene was intoxicated, belittled the home occupants for interrupting his evening and threatened to take the baby away with the help of CPS.
I had a lawyer at the police station by 10:00 am.
They refused to let him see Joey.
The lawyer returned with a writ from a Circuit county judge, ordering his immediate release.
The police refused.
Monday morning, @ 8:46 his lawyer said his wasn’t on the docket for arrigmment.
He was arrigned by 11:00 am
He was arrigned as a codefendant of the man who tried to break in, charged with 5 felonies & is being held on 150,000 cash bond, no 10%.
The man that tried to break in was charged with ONE count related to a firearm charge.

Please share,maybe someone out there can help.
This is the door that the guy tried to break in & the result of him shooting up the house, that has 5-6 people in it including my 3 week old grandson.

So you have allegations of the detective on the scene being drunk, and possibly getting the names of those involved mixed up, and thus, screwing up all of the paperwork in the reports. Plus, they are claiming that victim of the attack somehow conspired with the initial perpetrator?

A follow up post reads:

Thank you for the outpouring of support, advice, help and chicken!
We are private people, however we needed help; & thanks again for all of it.
Joey is still in Wayne county, with many working to get him out.
Some have claimed there has to be more to the story; here are the results of my investigation

Friday evening Joey and Amanda entertained friends in their home
Kori, long time friend of Amanda’s brings a guest, Andrea.
Joey and Amanda meet Andrea for the first time.
Andrea leaves the home

Andrea and Michael conspire to rob the house she just left
Michael tries to kick in the door & rob the place
Michael is confronted by the homeowner, who is armed
Michael uses his illegall firearm and shoots 8 times into the house
The homeowner returns fire and is wounded
Michael flees the scene
Joey calls 911.
Joey and Michael have never met.

Joey is arrested
We all know the rest;
Joey and Michael are charged as codefendant’s, making it appear they committed a crime together
Joey is charged with 5 felonies, 150,000 cash bond which means 15,000 cash plus collateral eaqul to 150,000

Nelson’s attorney, Cliff Woodards, made this comment on a facebook thread:

I suppose now I can add my two cents to this story as well. When I went to see Joseph at 10:30 am Saturday morning, the officer on duty didn’t bother to look up at me when I arrived. I waited until he finished a computer entry at which time I presented my bar card and identification and asked to see my client.

The officer handed me a half sheet of paper printed with a synopsis of the Michigan Supreme Court’s opinion in People v Tanner (2014). In that case the court ruled the police are not obligated to allow an attorney to visit a detainee unless the individual has requested to speak to a lawyer.

I have never had a jurisdiction deny me the privilege to speak to my client until this past Saturday.

Furthermore, the officer wouldn’t even tell me what they were holding Joseph for. I’ve never had a jurisdiction treat me in this manner either. He snarkily told me that if I gave him my card and if he asked for a lawyer, he would give the card to him.

Knowing that they were already afraid to let Joseph see counsel, I didn’t have any confidence that he would pass the card to my client. Thus I told him before leaving “Never mind. I don’t believe you’d give it to him anyway.”

I called Joseph’s parents and told them what had just occurred. They were understandably outraged. They then authorized me to obtain a writ of habeas corpus. I contacted a judge who signed the writ. I went back to the Westland police station and met Joseph’s parents.

Upon my arrival, Mr. Nelson told me that he overheard the officers talking with each other about the “black attorney that came to see Joseph who was in here acting all ghetto.”

I walked up to the counter and presented the writ to the very same desk officer. Eventually, a sergeant came out to the lobby and asked for my identification. I gave him my passport card. He looked at it and said “What is this?” I told him “It’s a passport card.” He replied, “You don’t have a driver’s license? Most people have a driver’s license.” I responded “Sergeant, that’s FEDERAL identification. What if I were a blind attorney who didn’t drive?” He begrudgingly took it and said “I guess I’ll run it through the computer.”

WHY he needed to run my name through the computer I’ll never know.

Soon thereafter, another officer came out and told me that my writ was suspect. He had looked up the judge’s name and found that the judge had the same business address as mine. I told him that six years ago, before the judge was elected, we shared office space. I showed him the online bar journal record for the judge which has the current court address for the judge. He said “Yeah, I know she’s a judge and that’s where she’s assigned, but you all had the same address…”

I asked him of what exactly was he accusing me. He told me that the writ didn’t have a court seal, it didn’t have a case number. I told him, how could it have 1) a court seal when writs are usually signed out of court and off-hours and 2) my client had not yet been charged so there couldn’t be a case number.

He just looked at me and walked away.

Eventually, he returned and told me that 1) he thought I was “playing games” and 2) he wasn’t going to honor the writ unless the judge came to court in person.

I eventually left knowing he was in direct violation of MCL 600.4331, which states “If the person upon whom the writ of habeas corpus was duly served refuses or neglects to obey the writ without sufficient excuse, the court or judge before whom the writ was to be answered, upon due proof of the service thereof, shall direct the arrest of such person.”

White family hires black lawyer. Black lawyer contacts black judge. But this is Westland. Maybe that’s why it took them 51 years to finally get around to electing its first black city council person.

Trust me. This isn’t the end. It’s only the beginning.

#ThereISaidIt

Yes, you read that correctly. The Wayne County jail guards are refusing to follow a judge’s orders and are denying Joseph Nelson his right to an attorney.

The Westland police apparently issued the following press release:

Westland MI – (January 10, 2018) Subject arrested on multiple assault charges after shooting a firearm at a man.
​On January 5th at approximately 11 p.m. the Westland Police Department was dispatched to an address on the 1700 block of Ackley Street on a report of a shooting that had occurred.

​Upon arrival officers investigated the crime scene, interviewed multiple subjects including eye witnesses, and collected physical evidence from the scene. The investigation revealed that there had been an altercation stemming from a mutual female acquaintance inside the home, which led to the shooting.

As a result of this investigation multiple suspects were arrested including 24 year old Kori Willhite, (female), of Garden City, 28 year old Michael Nelson of Westland, and 39 year old Michael Wilson of Detroit. Another female was also arrested but has since posted bond and has not yet been arraigned. Her identification and charges cannot be released at this time.

​Willhite was arraigned on misdemeanor charges of disguising her identification to a police officer and possession of improper prescription drugs. She was arraigned in the 18th District Court before the Honorable Judge Cicirelli and assigned a bond of $50,000 10%. She is scheduled to appear back at the 18th District Court for a pretrial on January 16th, 2018 at 1:30 p.m.

​The Westland Police Department submitted a warrant to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for the charges against Wilson. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office found sufficient evidence to approve a felony warrant on Wilson for one charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Wilson was arraigned in the 18th District Court on January 8th, 2018 in front of the Honorable Judge Cicirelli. Judge Cicirelli assigned Wilson a bond of $5,000 10%. He is scheduled to appear back at the 18th District Court for a probable cause conference on January 18th, 2018 at 8:30 a.m.

​The Westland Police Department submitted a warrant to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for the charges against Nelson. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office found sufficient evidence to approve a felony warrant on Nelson for charges of assault with intent to commit murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, (felonious assault), and felony firearm.

​Nelson was arraigned in the 18th District Court on January 8th, 2018 in front of the Honorable Judge Cicirelli. Judge Cicirelli assigned Nelson a bond $150,000 cash or surety. He is scheduled to appear back at the 18th District Court for a probable cause hearing on January 18th, 2018 at 8:30 a.m.

​This is an open case, and further details cannot be released at this time.

Note that they can’t even get the names right, referring to Joseph Nelson as “Michael Nelson”. If they can’t even get the names of those involved correct, what else are they screwing up?

Michigan is a Stand Your Ground state, and their statute reads:

SELF-DEFENSE ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 309 of 2006780.972 Use of deadly force by individual not engaged in commission of crime; conditions.

Sec. 2.

(1) An individual who has not or is not engaged in the commission of a crime at the time he or she uses deadly force may use deadly force against another individual anywhere he or she has the legal right to be with no duty to retreat if either of the following applies:

(a) The individual honestly and reasonably believes that the use of deadly force is necessary to prevent the imminent death of or imminent great bodily harm to himself or herself or to another individual.

(b) The individual honestly and reasonably believes that the use of deadly force is necessary to prevent the imminent sexual assault of himself or herself or of another individual.

(2) An individual who has not or is not engaged in the commission of a crime at the time he or she uses force other than deadly force may use force other than deadly force against another individual anywhere he or she has the legal right to be with no duty to retreat if he or she honestly and reasonably believes that the use of that force is necessary to defend himself or herself or another individual from the imminent unlawful use of force by another individual.

You can reach Westland police chief Jeff Jedrusik at 734-722-9600.

The robot dog that will murder you will also dance on your grave

To cleanse the palate, obviously I don’t know if there’ll be “graves” as such after the robot apocalypse. I assume it’ll depend on their olfactory capabilities. If they’re not equipped to detect scent, maybe the ‘bots will just leave us where we lie to decay in the sun, our streets transformed into rivers of putrefied viscera from the sheer mass of leaking carcasses.

It’s my great privilege to share thoughts like that with you at the end of a long day.

I’m curious about what possessed Boston Dynamics to put this clip together. Could be nothing more than boredom or a creative way to show off Spot’s motor skills. But I wonder if all the freaky-deaky videos of humanoid robots demonstrating ever more impressive feats of mobility has created a strange sort of PR problem for them. They don’t want every promo they do to seem menacing, however inadvertently. Soon they’ll have people breaking into their factory, trying to stop them before they build the first T-800. Time to do something whimsical instead.

This thing is set to go on sale next year, by the way. Not to everyday consumers; the price tag will likely ensure that it remains a corporate plaything. But you’ll be seeing them around sooner than you think. Plus, some ultra-rich tech bros are destined to buy them and show them off as look-what-I-got novelties. We all know who the first one will be.

Weird but true: In a few decades’ time, this thing shaking its ass in your face as it does a victory twerk might be the last thing you ever see.

WOW! Claire McCaskill Speaks Out After Project Veritas Reveals She’s a Complete Fraud — Lies and Blames Hawley (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

James O’Keefe strikes again!

On Monday evening, Project Veritas released an undercover video of endangered Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill admitting to being deceptive about her stance on firearms and immigration policies.

McCaskill is a red-state Democrat Senator so she has to appear pro 2nd Amendment to her constituents because Missourians love their guns.

Claire McCaskill’s staffers were also caught on video saying she puts on a moderate front to get the Republican votes.

The top staffer then continued saying McCaskill believes everything Obama does.

THIS WAS A DEVASTATING VIDEO! Claire McCaskill was COMPLETELY EXPOSED!

Senator McCaskill’s staffers admitted she is pro-DACA, pro-DREAMERS and against the border wall even though she runs ads to the contrary claiming she is strong on border security.
The Project Veritas Video has been viewed over 267,000 times so far!

On Tuesday morning Claire McCaskill responded to the stunning revelations.
McCaskill went on Ozarks First to try to dig herself out of this deep hole.


Claire lied some more, blamed Josh Hawley for the undercover video.

Senator McCaskill: I’ve been very up front about all my positions. I remember this person was trying to get me to say something different than what my positions are… It is startling that Josh Hawley would be part of fraudulently embedding something in my campaign.

Coincidence or corruption? In Andrew Cuomo’s government it’s hard to tell

Published

on

By

Given the parade of people in the orbit of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who have recently either been shipped off to jail or come under investigation, it’s amazing that none of the dirt ever sticks to Cuomo himself. How does he account for the various people who funneled money toward his campaign, and then were later discovered to have benefitted from state government “generosity” and wound up in handcuffs? It’s all just a coincidence.

Today we’re hearing news of yet another of these amazing coincidences. This story starts with a situation we first covered more than a year ago and it dealt with some donors who helped Cuomo out during his 2014 campaign. A medical corporation named Crystal Run Healthcare was run by a few people who had funneled more than $400K to Cuomo’s campaigns over the previous four years. When the “Buffalo Billion” was announced (a plan to invest a billion dollars of taxpayer money into projects creating jobs in the western, upstate region) Crytal Run was at the front of the line. They wound up receiving more than $25M dollars for two new medical centers.

But there were some fishy elements to the story. First of all, they had actually broken ground on both of those new projects six months before the grants were even announced or applications were being taken. It’s almost as if they knew they had the money coming from somewhere. Then we found out that the Crystal Run had coughed up a flurry of maximum donations only weeks before the checks to them were cut. In addition to that, there was a meeting held less than two weeks after the announcement of the grants where Crystal Run executives met with state officials, including a top aide from inside Cuomo’s office.

How did Cuomo explain it? It was all just a happy coincidence and the meeting didn’t matter because they didn’t even talk about the grants. The meeting was about Medicaid.

But now the local press has gotten hold of emails from Crystal Run showing that they did indeed discuss their two new developments and the grants, and that the state representatives at the meeting were “very receptive” to their requests. (NY Post)

Now, despite earlier denials from everyone involved, it turns out company execs got a private sitdown with top state officials in 2015, just 12 days after Albany started seeking applications for $1.2 billion in development grants. Crystal Run wound up with $25.4 million of that (the only for-profit company to qualify) for two projects.

Team Cuomo insists those projects never even got mentioned at the meeting, saying it was only about Medicaid. Yet the Albany Times Union reports that an e-mail sent two weeks later by Crystal Run’s chief legal officer stressed that company execs had “shared our vision for growth,” including the two “expansions,” with the health commissioner and a top aide who worked in Cuomo’s office.

Both officials, the e-mail noted, “were, obviously, supportive, as we are bringing real jobs to real people” — and had agreed that “further discussion was warranted” with the state economic-development agency “at the highest levels.”

How much more evidence do we need at this point? Cuomo’s spokespeople obviously lied about what went on at that meeting. They have records from the company who benefitted from it after making massive contributions. (Two of the people involved in organizing these meetings, donations, and windfalls have already been convicted or indicted on related charges.) And yet Andrew Cuomo continues to insist that all the grants were handled fairly and above board. These are all just amazing coincidences. And somehow, while his closest aides head off to the crowbar motel, Cuomo floats along and prosecutors can’t seem to lay a glove on him. On top of that, he’s on track to cruise to electoral victory for another four years in office.

I guess that’s just a happy coincidence too, eh?
