Dear Gov. Cuomo:
Ramsey Orta was falsely imprisoned, on October 3, 2016, for recording a crime; the state-sponsored murder of his friend, Eric Garner, by rogue cops on Staten Island. The chokehold death happened on a public street by members of the New York Police Department. This recording failed to violate NY Penal Law § 250.40 et. seq. It was Orta’s duty to report this criminal transaction under NY Penal Law § 250.35. Now, he is in “harm’s way.”
If a “citizen” is under a duty to record and report a criminal transaction, any law enforcement agency should be proscribed from engaging in a retaliatory action against the reporter. This retaliatory action, against Orta, was taken after the office of NYC Chief Medical Examiner classified the death of Garner as a “homicide.” This was probable cause for arrests of the rogue cops. Instead, the following day, members of the New York Police Department wrongfully arrested Orta to impeach his credibility before a grand jury.
This retaliatory arrest of Orta prompted a “public prosecutor,” in Richmond County, to convene a grand jury to protect the “rogue cops” in the murder of Eric Garner (“I can’t breathe”). Blacks have earned the right to a special prosecutor, based on my successful demand, following the death of Michael Griffith by white vigilantes in Howard Beach. I refused to waive this right in the kidnapping and rape of Tawana Brawley. ADA Steven Pagones, of Dutchess County, NY, was a “rapist” as found by “a jury of his peers.”
My presence, in Bensonhurst, as the legal representative, caused the conviction of Joseph Fama for thirty-three years in the death of Yusuf Hawkins. This was unprecedented and it could have caused the conviction of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
New York caused the New York Legislature to retaliate by filing a disciplinary complaint against me and to end my obligation to defend the downtrodden and the oppressed on apro bono basis as is required by the Code of Professional Responsibility. This “state action” negatively affected blacks nationwide.
In the meantime, Clayton Patterson, a white videographer, asked me to represent him in the Tompkins Square Park rebellion in 1988. The office of Manhattan District Attorney had wrongfully, sought to seize his video-tape of state-sponsored police crimes. I refused and ended up going to Cong. John Conyers, chair of the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives.
The Brooklyn Disciplinary Committee admitted, in a published report, that it had no jurisdiction over me for my refusal to testify against Tawana Brawley. See “Abrams Calls for Inquiries on Brawley Lawyers’ Role,” the New York Times, October 7, 1988. (www.nytimes.com/1988/10/07/nyregion/abrams-calls-for-inquiries-on-brawley-lawyers-role.html).
New York had a change of heart. Accordingly, I would be, wrongfully, charged with “failing to cooperate with an attorney-disciplinary investigation” because of relentless, police pressure initiated by the New York Legislature and a “bill of pains and penalties” in violation of Art. 1, sec. 10, cl.1 of the U.S. Constitution.
I had to end my attorney-client relationship with Clayton Patterson to meet this false claim. New York would initially ban me from representing Tawana Brawley in 1989. All trial transcripts will show that I have never called a client to the witness stand. I have always refused to question a client about the facts of the case and I have always refused to allow a client to plead guilty. These facts are well-known to court personnel.
All blacks suffer from some form ofaphasia, amnesia, alexia and agraphia. These psychological disorders cause a serious problem, for most black persons, on witness stands. Coupled with a constitutionally-mandated, bad reputation, more than ninety-five percent of all black persons are compelled to plead guilty. The $ilver rites movement makes a compelling, economic case for a “shoot-to-kill policy.” It invites a wrongful death action to minimize damages.
Over sixty percent of all black men are subject to the criminal justice system. The answer is quite simple. Slavery is a crime against humanity. “Slaves” lost their humanity. No descendant of enslaved Africans is capable of defending herself or himself in a trial. This is a violation of due process. Furthermore, blacks lack causes of actions for “political malpractice,” “legal malpractice” or “educational malpractice and there is no cause of action for “constitutional defamation.”
Because I was able to “crack the code, New York has subjected me to be classified as an “indefinitely suspended attorney” by the Office of Court Administration. No classification exists for an “indefinitely-suspended attorney.” This is state-sponsored defamation and judicial harassment. New York is retaliating against me for “cracking the code.” This militates against the prison-industrial complex. The face of crime is “black.”
Assemblyman Charles Barron is convening “New York State Black Self-Determination Convention” on October 8, 2016 at College of New Rochelle, Brooklyn Campus in Brooklyn, NY. I join Assemblyman Charles Barron in his call for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party to submit to the following demands:
- The Elevation of Black Women [and more]
- Black Community Control of Police
- Black Community Control of the Schools
- Halt Gentrification
We will be calling on Hillary Clinton to join us in calling on the Commission of Presidential Debates to add another date to its itinerary to discuss and debate “State of Black America.” The Freedom Party has earned the right to sit at the table. It has certainly out-distanced the Libertarian Party and former Gov. Gary Johnson. Furthermore, a poll shows that forty-two percent of respondents agree with such a debate on the “State of Black America.”
Coupled with illegal, voter suppression, and political terrorism, blacks are unable to operate a political party for the same reasons that blacks are unable to give testimony in a court of law. Nonetheless, the Freedom Party was able to not only out perform the Libertarian Party but to also comply with all of the requirements in New York to establish a political party with automatic ballot access. This was a “miracle” and it should be rewarded and not punished. This is rank discrimination.
Donald Trump is calling on America to “Make America Great Again.” This is an enthymeme. Blacks have already made America “great.” It is now time to “Make America Whole.” This is the most critical issue facing the country. A whole number is greater than the sum of its parts. It cannot happen without a debate on the “State of Black America.”
In yesterday’s Daily News (10-6-16) it is reported that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. is shielding Mayor William de Blasio of New York City in the senseless death of 6-year-old Zymere Perkins by his mother and her boyfriend. New York City is a plantation. Blacks suffer from white paternalism. No black child should live in the same slave quarters with a “male slave” who is not his biological father. This is like mixing kerosene with fire.
You have the executive authority to appoint a competent and zealous, special prosecutor, and not a “public prosecutor,” to convene a grand jury and issue a grand jury report under Article 190 of the NY Criminal Procedure Law. Mayor de Blasio is clearly over his head especially when he has to consult with Rev. Al Sharpton for the status of the slave quarters. This only happens on a “plantation.” Words of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.: “The Negro cannot win … if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety.”
