latest news

 

The Media.

Here I present the lies that have spread throughout the media about my case.

Please show your support by sharing this article with your friends & family.

This page will list the negative media coverage and my response including clear proof of the false statements and how they have affected me. I am going to show a printout of a criminal justice information center (CJIS) (III multiple source record) generated on 9/13/12 showing my convictions at that time. I will also show my abstract judgement reflecting the 1998 convictions for the crime they alleged I did in 1991. The reason I am saying this is I recently read this book ” Twenty-Nine Palms a true story of murder, Marines and Mojave” by Deanne Stillman that is being mentioned in several articles. The whole concept of this book is predicated on me being guilty of the murders described in the book. I found myself writing a “L” next to everything that wasn’t true. After finishing the book it was full of “L’s” that I used to mark the lies. Se even mistakes that I was convicted of Murder and Rape, which you can see from my abstract of judgement is incorrect. I am presently preparing a civil suit for defamation as well as the affects of this mis-information on other legal matters. I was told by a criminal lawyer that they can’t even begin to defend that mistake they printed in that book. This book has been out thee for years with all these lies without me knowing about it until recently.

I will also show that there has been information stating that I am a member of some Black Panther Party or other Black Nationalist Organization is incorrect. I will show the source of this information is from being classified as an associate of the Black Guerilla Family (BGF) by CDCR officials in retaliation to the lawsuit I have pending against them alleging excessive use of force was used against me in an unprovoked incident that occurred on 11/21/06. I will also show photographs of my injuries and the correctional offices alleged injuries. I will direct the reader to the Federal District Court website where ou can read and review the suits and the evidence to suport my claims pertaining to the excessive force allegations and the classifying me as an associate of the BGF prison gang was done in violation of the Eight and First Amendment. I will show that tan information document (booking sheet) used to justify the extreme security measures was manufactured and is incorrect. The assistant district attorney stated this document came from Pelican Bay State Prison (PBSP) and a senior member of the security detail testified to that fact as well. You will see that PBSP officials stated in their formal response to a CDCR (602) administrative appeal with the attached document that the document was not generated at PBSP or any CDCR institutions contradicting the assistant district attorney’s discovery. Most of the information on this document is nothing but lies yet it has been presented as truth and is an has been used adversely against me. since returning to PBSP I have found this information is now in my prison file. This document claims I am a gang member in thes places and I was part of a plot to murder those who I respect most (religious leaders) Imams. It even incorrectly identifies members of my family who have fought for this country and are law abiding citizens. It’s obvious that this document was created by someone who did not think I would become in possession of it. Someone has made a conscious tactful effort to slander me in ways that has been prejudicial and hurtful! My sister Jody who is no longer with us is incorrectly identified as working for the Secret Service in Washington D.C.. The document says I have significant influence over the entire black inmate population to include Muslims, Bloods and Crips.

I will show the reader that this document with this incorrect information has affected the level of security whenever I was transported or housed while out on the IAD. These extreme housing measures has further violated my Constitutional Rights to be free from cruel and unusual punishment.

The book by author Deanne Stillman mentions half-truths when something benefited me. She mentions our motions contesting the Blood evidence stating we did it ” do to the possibility that one of the arresting officers kept the vials of blood in his refrigerator”. There was no possibility!! The detective Neely testified to this fact under oath. He stated he keep it in his refrigerator right next to the beer over the weekend. This evidence was not suppressed but allowed. The author mentions me going to a sports memorabilia store the day before the murders. Yet, she don’t mention that the store owner testified to seeing me an that I had cuts on my hand that he and his father gave me cream for, making it impossible for the to have occurred during the crime as the DA alleged. She also states I was questioned for a rape in 1991 and this is a lie!

She did mention some truths in the book as well. She mentions my Miranda Rights being violated 51 times, and acknowledges the alleged conflict between my defense and the Judge Yent, due to his wife’s participation in assisting the prosecution by revealing confidential sealed documents. Katie Yent, the judge’s wife who became the Mayor of Barstow was working as the clerk in Judge Steven’s courtroom when she showed the DA my confidential sealed documents. The author mentions this information was discovered at a party attended by Katie Yent. She mentions how she discovered from a Trenton Drapper that two of the men who was playing cards with the victims the night before they were murdered are now in prison for murder and manslaughter.

Mrs. Stillman never mentions how she was introduced to the 1991 case which was by my lawyer at the time Mr Zellen. I remember the first day she came to court and he told me who she was there to cover the case and was invited by him to do so. I also learned years later that she became good friends wit hone of the victims mother. This parent went on to sue the United States Marine Core and had her case dismissed. I also know her complaint also incorrectly states that I was convicted of murder and rape which you can see was incorrect. She also mentions Mr Zellen filing  motion requesting a subpoena for the reporters notes based on the contention that there were evidence showing my innocence.

I feel like I should have given her an interview, when she requested one years ago but my trust was and is not easily given due to the realization that people have ulterior motives that do not always include the truth. It’s obvious that the author of this book written it to justify the convictions instead of writing the complete story. This book has been mentioned in several articles as if it’s truth and this will also be beneficial to me when I sue her an the publishers for defamation. I cannot and will not mention everything. It is incorrect and sensationalized!!
