Traffic Court in Delmar on Wednesday – Maddox

       New York City is no different now, in substance, than Mississippi, in the 1960’s, unless you are unaware of your history and you missed the civil rights movement.  Fortunately , in Mississippi, there were men and women like Fannie Lou Hamer, Mamie Till-Mobley, Medgar Evers, George Lee, Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) and Aaron Henry, among others.

            The “Big Apple” has a different style.  Chokeholds have replaced lynchings.  It is no longer the Ku Klux Klan.  Violence is state-sponsored.  The New York Police Department is the purveyor of violence under the color of law.  When a black person is fatally shot, the rogue cops, automatically, enjoy judicial immunity.

            During his campaign for NYS Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman promised that Rev. Al Sharpton would have a desk in Schneiderman’s office.  Sharpton got this concept from me. My uncle was a campaign manager for state Sen. Leroy Johnson who allowed Sam Massell to become the first Jewish mayor provided that Johnson had a desk in his office.  Among other things, Johnson put Muhammad Ali back in the ring.  Sharpton is unable to bust a grape.

            I have had a hectic time since July 26 when I first learned of the public hearings.  Time-wise, I could only register for the public hearing in Manhattan on August 11.  I chose to register for it in person on July 28 in Albany.  I ran into a traffic “trap.”  I was unreasonably detained and was only able to get to Albany after the hearing.  I timely registered for the public hearing on the website.

            My uncle died on July 30.  I had to go to Atlanta but I also had to educate the black community about the public hearing in Manhattan on August 11 and draft a newspaper advertisement, among other things.  Censorship was present in Mississippi in the 1960’s and it is still present in New York.  The cost of communications is expensive in New York even though the FCC asserts that the airwaves are public.

            I have already traveled to Atlanta.  A legal workshop will occur on Sunday afternoon at the Cotton Club.  The public hearing on attorney discipline is scheduled for August11.  The following morning, August 12, at 8:00 a.m., I must appear in Bethlehem Town Court, 447 Delaware Avenue in Delmar, NY 12054 and be ready for trial on constitutional issues.  This is prosecutorial vindictiveness.
