On this Sunday, black “Jezebels” will be celebrating the Cuomo administration for having stripped black men of their human and civil rights. The culprit was “the lesser of two evils.” In 1982, the gubernatorial contest in New York was between Mayor Ed Koch and challenger, Mario Cuomo.
Because blacks hold the balance of power in New York, they were able to decide this gubernatorial contest in favor of Cuomo. Blacks received their award: an all-white cabinet. According to Cuomo, blacks received what they voted for. This is why voting, by blacks, should be off the table.
These misguided blacks will dismiss this unfortunate result as constituting history. They define history as being only “a past event.” These brainiacs are unable to connect father (Mario) with son (Andrew). On the other hand, they are able to connect “Bush 43″ with former Gov. Jeb Bush.
In November 1983, six white men in Dutchess County, NY kidnapped fifteen year-old Tawana Brawley and raped her. Only after the black community pledged, on December 12, 1987, that it would stand behind Alton Maddox in his defense of the Brawley family would he enter the case. Pledges of eternal support came from blacks throughout the nation.
Maddox journeyed to Dutchess County alone in December 1987 to perform some detective work. This investigation gave rise to the work-product privilege. Maddox emerged, with the white mailman at the Dutchess County Courthouse in January 1988. It was a one-two, knockout punch.
Outside the courthouse, Maddox was pointing a finger at ADA Steven Pagones. Inside the courthouse, the white mailman (Tim Louse) was pointing a finger at the occupants of P.O. Harry Crist’s decommissioned police car which included Crist, Steven Pagones, Scott Patterson, a state trooper, and Eugene Brunson.
After Dutchess County District Attorney William Grady discovered the mailman, at the courthouse, and Maddox outside the courthouse, he panicked. The news would get worse. While Pagones admitted that he was an occupant in the vehicle and was headed to the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury, CT, Pagones remembered Crist asking about the missing girl smeared with dog feces: “a girl in a bag of shit.” This fact could only have been known by a kidnapper.
This was a hot potato and “self-preservation is the first law of nature” unless you are a slave in New York facing a white mob: Dial 911 and Die.” This was an ethical problem. Grady had to give up his prosecutorial duties while keeping the identity of the suspect from public scrutiny even though the public had a right to know.
Under the law, Dutchess County Court Judge Judith Hillary had to write the letter to Gov. Mario Cuomo identifying the suspect and highlighting the conflict of interest. Gov. Cuomo had promised to hide this letter from the public. Judge Hillary would testify inPagones v. Maddox et. al., that Pagones was the rape suspect mentioned in her letter.
Law enforcement officers in Dutchess County did not need a special prosecutor. Instead, they needed a clean-up hitter masquerading as a special prosecutor. In the slave community every opinion counts and no slave is better than another slave. Slaves were entitled to give an unlettered “Sambo” the same weight as the argument of Alton Maddox.
Gov. Cuomo, after a month of discussions with Maddox, was unable to persuade him that NYS Attorney General Robert Abrams was a real special prosecutor. Maddox was in violation of master-slave law. No slave has a right to question a white man. Cuomo had a problem. Maddox is not a slave. It is illegal in New York for a black man to represent a slave, however. A $ilver rites attorney, on the other hand, may represent a slave.
Under Cuomo’s direction, Abrams would erase Pagones as a suspect despite Judge Hillary’s letter to Gov. Cuomo. This would allow Abrams to abuse the grand jury process by conducting a witch-hunt. The targets of the Abrams investigation would be the Brawleys and their advisors who were getting “too big for their britches.”
Maddox had already touched another raw nerve by disputing Abrams’ claim that P.O. Harry Crist had killed himself. If true, it might mean that Pagones and Patterson, who had a key to Crist’s home, may be killers and, certainly, suspects. A suicide does not require a grand jury investigation. A homicide does.
Abrams would file a disciplinary complaint against Maddox claiming, inter alia, that Maddox had intentionally lied about the manner of death of Harry Crist. When Maddox demanded the autopsy report, the disciplinary committee deemed that it was off-limits. When Pagones sued me for defamation, Justice Hickman ruled that an autopsy report was not discoverable in a sedition prosecution: “Truth is not a defense.”
A criminal defendant would have been entitled to, upon demand and in advance of trial, an autopsy report under Article 240 of the Criminal Procedure Law. A civil litigant would have been entitled, under Article 31 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules, to the autopsy report well in advance of trial.
To prosecute Maddox in the Brooklyn Disciplinary Committee, New York would have to prove that Abrams and Pagones were his clients; that Maddox had lied about the manner of death of Harry Crist, Jr. and that Maddox was not entitled to disclosure under Art. 240 of the CPL, Art. 31 of the CPLR and under Brady v. Maryland.
The kangaroo hearing in Brooklyn would happen in 1993. The Manhattan Disciplinary Committee would not entertain a disciplinary complaint from Abrams, Pagones or the New York Legislature against C. Vernon Mason for lack of jurisdiction. They were not his clients.
The disciplinary proceeding against Maddox could only happen in Brooklyn because of judicial gerrymandering despite the lack of original jurisdiction. John White is also a victim of judicial gerrymandering. C. Vernon Mason was never disciplined, in any respect, for his representation of Tawana Brawley.
Since the Democratic Party sanctions judicial gerrymandering, all Democratic selected officials must endorse the disciplinary actions against Maddox. This is a problem with politics. The Democratic Party behaves like the Mafia. No political party can fight the injustices in New York without a courageous, knowledgeable and effective lawyer and a strong, support group.
No civil rights organization or political party can help the Brawleys without having a thorough knowledge of “legalese” and “military science.” Otherwise, the black community is dealing with an impostor. This scenario is worse than “plantation politics.” At best, it is an obstruction of justice. At worse, it is treason.
Despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brady v. Maryland, it is appropriate for a prosecutor in New York to suppress the truth and especially in a case of sedition. Maddox was convicted in 1993 of lying about the manner of death of Christ’s death. Maddox would only be able to secure the autopsy report in 1998. By then, It was too late and expensive for Maddox to challenge his “disbarment.” “A free black should never represent a fifteen year-old black girl” and accuse a white man of rape without group support.
