Court Hearing December 16th,
modern day lynching is taking place right here in Georgia.
There is a major case of injustice and violations of human
rights being perpetrated against Dr. Malachi Z. York.
It's been 20 months since he was held in jail. A trial
date has been set for January 5th, 2004 with Judge C. Ashley
Royal. Is judge Royal biased and has he recently
displayed his support for the prosecution and his dislike for
the Nuwaubians? Below are incident taken from the recent
status hearing held in Macon Federal District Court on
December 16th 2003.
Judge C. Ashley Royal enters the courtroom and announces his
plans for the hearing which only consisted of hearing
arguments on motions that he had questions on. He stated
that he was not there to hear all the motions filed, he was
only there to hear a selected few. This sets the tone
for what the public can expect in the future, a biased judge.
Judge Royal announced his plans to completely closed the
courtroom during trial with the intentions of having only the
media present. His idea of "media", only consists of
Caucasian Media Personnel responsible for negative pre-trial
publicity. He ordered a change of venue to the Southern
Judicial District because of the negative pre-trial publicity
by Rob Peecher of the Macon Telegraph, Bill Osinski
of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and others from the
Eatonton Messenger and Union Recorder. A statewide
newspaper called the "Georgia
Informer Newspaper" whose been in business for over 25
years was denied entrance. Georgia Informer is a source
for African American news, headquarters is right here in
Macon. Georgia Informer publisher Herbert Dennard and
his reporters were denied entrance.
evident in today's hearing and there were several press and
media personnel present, but reporters for Black owned
newspaper were told to either leave the courtroom or sit with
the spectators and not allowed in the press box.
Meanwhile Payton Towns, III, a white reporter from the Union
Recorder, was the only one allowed in the press box.
Judge Royal displays his support for negative pre-trial
publicity. Judge Royal admits to having knowledge of a
negative news article printed in the Brunswick News, written
by Karen Sloan and Putnam County Sheriff Howard Richard Sills.
The article entitled "Cult Leader to be tried in Glynn"
and printed 2 days after this same Judge ordered an change of
venue due to negative pre-trial publicity. On October
30th, Judge Royal ordered a change of venue, for the case to
be tried in the Southern District due to negative pre-trial
publicity in the Northern and Middle Districts. Rob
Peecher of the Macon Telegraph and Bill Olsinski are mainly
responsible for printing negative pre-trial publicity along
with WMAZ channel 13, Channel 2 News, Fox 5, Fox 24, Athens
Banner, and others. No expressed statement or warning
was given to Sheriff Sills or Karen Sloan of the Brunswick
Judge Royal states his reasons for suggesting the courtroom to
be closed. Judge Royal accuses the Yamassee Native
American tribe of tampering with the jury pool due to their
participation in the Brunswick Parade held on December 6th,
2003. The Yamassee Native American Moors of the Creek
nation received a confirmation letter from the Brunswick
downtown development to participate in their Christmas parade.
The Yamassee tribe was accused of falsifying documents to a
government agency, which was proven to be false. Now the
Yamassee tribe filed a lawsuit for defamation of character,
false accusations, and discrimination. The Yamassee won
first place in the contest of parade entries, but was
disqualified as a result of false accusations. This is a
clear sign of favoritism on the part of the Judge to ignore
the deliberate attempt to spoil the jury by Karen Sloan and
Sheriff Sills, but rather the Yamassee Native Americans.
Royal also announced his concern for the safety of the jurors
and the witnesses for the prosecution, stating that this case
involves a serious crime and that the Yamassee Native
possibly threaten the witnesses or jurors. This is
absurd! The Yamassee Native Americans and their chief,
Black Thunderbird Eagle has endured all
of the injustice and inhumane treatment stemming back from
1997. It all first started with civil suits and zoning
issues which has now escalated into a criminal case against
chief, Black Thunderbird Eagle. From 1997 until now,
even with the torture, kidnapping, and denial of medical
attention of the Chief, along with the discrimination
defamation of character, persecution, and out right racism,
the Tribe has never once resulted to violence.
Yamassee Native Americans tribe, while sovereign, still
respect and obey the laws of the country and states.
There has never been a case where Yamassee Native Americans
have resorted to violence. During the last 11 years
that they have been persecuted, character assassinated,
demafed, and slandered in the media due to the ongoing civil
war between the Yamassee Native Americans and Putnam
county Sheriff Howard Richard Sills.
Americans have filed over 14 civil cases against Putnam
county commissioners and sheriff Howard Richard Sills for
violations dealing with building and zoning violations.
A member of the Yamassee Native Americans filed a
federal lawsuit against Sheriff Howard Richard Sills for
defamation of character when he classified her as a terrorist.
There was also a
Federal lawsuit filed when Putnam county denied Yamassee
Native Americans the right to vote in the county
elections. Recently 3 more Federal civil cases were filed by
members of the Yamassee Native Americans. 1.
Mental and physical torture of Maku Chief Black Thunderbird.
2. Defamation lawsuit against Brunswick downtown development
authority and Sheriff Sills 3. Civil suits
against Putnam county for discrimination in zoning practices
and more are on the way. This is a clear indication on
how the Yamassee Native Americans handle their
differences, Utilization of the law, NOT VIOLENCE.
We do not support any one who would threaten or cause any harm
to any of the alleged victims because they to are
Americans and that would be against our tribal laws,
Judge Royal helps the prosecution in their motions right in
open courts. The Judge gave the prosecution a case law
to back up their motion. This same case law was later
verified to be null and void. After the court takes a 30
minute recess, the judge and his court clerk laugh it off and
produce another case law, still in support of the
prosecution's motion against Chief Black Thunderbird Eagle.
This is a clear sign for all to see that the judge is
violating his immunity by prosecuting from the bench.
