Black Man Denied His Right of a Lawyer Due to His Manner of “Requesting”

I only am just know finding out about this and I am absolutely outraged.

Summed up: A Black male by the name of Warren Demesne in Louisiana agreed two times to talk to police/investigators regarding alleged sexual assault charges. He was allegedly read his Miranda Rights, which shouldn’t even be

NO ONE has an excuse good enough to NOT be speaking out or taking action in SOME way, shape some form. Even sharing info is something simple ANYONE can do but too many don’t.

brought up or make a difference on whether or not the following is right but the other side made it a part of their argument. First, what’s the issue?

 

As he was defending himself against allegations made, he stated the following:

“…if y’all, this is how I feel, if y’all think I did it, I know that I didn’t do it so why don’t you just give me a lawyer, dog, cause this is not what’s up.” 

They are claiming, because he said “dog” he was not asking for a lawyer… Thus, he wasn’t granted one. Upon taking this to the Supreme Court of Louisiana, they CLEARLY denied Warren Demesne from obtaining justice by denying his appeal which stated the police denied him the right to a lawyer, which they claim they did because in using the word “dog” it was “open to interpretation” and could be taken “multiple ways” – which is BS.

Unless absolutely utter morons, it is so clear that the ruling judge clearly exploited the law to cater to the injustice system. Not even the most idiotic person in this world would ever think a person seriously would ask for a “dog to be their lawyer” – having serious allegations against one and wanting a lawyer would not be the time to “joke” about it, either.

I don’t understand how we keep letting the government get away with this kind of thing any more than I understand why this is not a case the non-profit media has blown up. Of course main stream media won’t; but why aren’t we, as activists, not speaking out more on this slap to the face of racial equality, justice and equality in the legal system?

In the end? I’ll end it with the asinine opinion of a Justice Scott Christon, who defends the choice to deny the appeal made by Mr. Demesne, who had requested a lawyer but not in a way “proper” – that is an opinion, and opinion is subjective; the majority of people are not stupid- yet these clowns must think us as such to even attempt, let alone defend and get away with, this sort of unjust ruling.

After Justice Scott Chricton insists Demesme only “ambiguously referenced a lawyer.” [Ambiguously is used because saying “open to more than one interpretation” would have been too complex a task, apparently.

“Chricton notes that under current legal precedent set by Davis v. United States, if a suspect makes an “ambiguous or equivocal” reference to a lawyer—one where a “reasonable” cop could conclude that that the suspect only “might” be invoking his right to an attorney—police can continue their interrogation. “Maybe I need a lawyer,” for example, is considered too ambiguous.

Read his ludicrous opinion on this reflective decision by the LA Supreme Court, by clicking here. From the legal decision to deny him his appeal to this opinion piece, it all is all too reflective of the racist nature of our legal system as much as it is telling of both American society but also, sadly, it stands as a harsh reminder of how far we still have to go; this is NOT THE TIME TO REST! We need SERIOUS action.

Now.

[I’d like to note that the fact he agreed to speak to these jerks, twice, speaks volumes. Sadly, as most people know, the media and legal system use both past “criminal history” if available and, as in this case, they abuse the allegations made in an attempt to damn him to a deliberate outcome of guilty before evidence or a trial has even begun. This should be a crime in and of itself, however, it’s not such here in America for that sort of justice system is only available to those living in nations that are made up of a just, equitable society and legal system.] 

 

 

Quick Video: “15 year old girl leaves anti-gun politicians speechless” – The Utmost Respect for Her!

“Guns are not the problem. People are. Purging our society of violence and murder cannot be done through gun control legislation.”

Exactly. Killers will kill. Punishing and restricting the good will not stop the bad. This is, in my opinion, simply the new “war on *drugs*” –
I want to note, I am against gang violence, obviously. I have lost too many to the pointless killings. However, I have lost too many to the use of drugs, as well. The problem in both is the mentality and the environment, not the guns nor the drugs. Those are just easy scapegoats instead of the real problem and issue at hand.

I love hearing other people speak with knowledge and truth. Absolutely love this video, and all she has to say. Whether you are for strict gun laws or against them; listening with an open mind is so important. Not only is she right, but she knows how and why she is. If you disagree with her, that’s fine, but at least don’t ignore her and all those she speaks for.

Not Going To Let The Government Break My Spirit (bit personal..again.)

This morning I found out some very disheartening, disappointing, sad and a bit scary news regarding “a” domestic violence case. Though deep down this verdict was expected, I didn’t anticipate it being THIS dismissed. They didn’t read my statement or ask questions. The judge simply came in, said he had the authority to over rule the DA and was doing so.

The DA had suggested probation, fine and anger managment (that last part is funny to me- abusers don’t change). The judge dismissed punishment because of his age, not taking into consideration or not CARING that he is the same age as the woman he has been severely and sickeningly been abusing for over 40 years. His other reason was because he “hadn’t been in trouble before”….

There is a reason he had never been “in trouble” before and that is because he used to be a “high” ranking and respected member of law enforcement. Anytime there was suspicions and police were ordered to speak to the abused, he always managed to remove the investigation request, so no one every came to speak.

Now he is older and retired but he is also more sick of an abuser now than he has been in about 20 years. No one was ever brave enough to call the police and make a statement. Though I am not a police fan due to their tendency to be killers and abusers themselves, I knew this had to be documented so I am the one who called the police and filed the statement which landed him in jail and court, yes, for the first time.

Had the judge asked, he would have known he had never been in trouble because no one was willing to go against him in the years past. So the verdict is, guilty, as he had already plead guilty

The judge gave him a fine and that’s it. Another day of punishing no real crime.

I had expected he wouldnt get all the DA had proposed but nothing other than a small fine, is devastating, but consistent with American law. I will say one more thing and then move on. This ruling cuts deep to me & of course her. It is, as said, another reminder of our failure of a legal system; one which does not care for anyone but men; white, mid to upper class men. Or “one of their own” aka the “law enforcement”… This was something very personal to me, more than I will say, and it has now fallen apart in seconds, and has hit home so hard.

HOWEVER!

As much as I would like to go to sleep and hide, I won’t. It isn’t even an option. For through this insane, unjust ruling, I have been reminded (again, not that I needed to be reminded) that the American legal system is unjust, biased, prejudice and we all need to be raising hell and not resting until positive change occurs.

Here in America, they give harsher time and puinshment to the undeserving i.e., drug “offenders”, computer activists while letting true criminals (i.e., pedophiles, abusers, killers, rapists) walk away too often with a slap on the wrist in comparison; if they even do that.

I am sure most if not all countries are the same when it comes to punishment for domestic abuse & violence.

So in posts to come I will be researching where other countries stand regarding spousal abuse, but first I am going to focus on America. I am also going to get a better layout soon, so different topics will be easier to find.

And with that I end by saying… My fight against domestic violence/abuse has always been “on”- but now it is a priority- I’m fed up up with how women are treated be it not helping save women’s lives or trying to take our rights away, such as abortion. Or politicians saying we ask for rape or because we are women, that’s “what we are here for.”

Just as I fight against racism and police brutality, I now have an equally sized flame of rage for the mistreatment of women, the lack of respect and care from the government & society alike. I am off to study laws and psychological profiles of abusers. I think I may even make a new page solely for this research and resources for abused women. Either way, I am using the injustice given out today to motivate me and fuel my anger, nothing will stop me from fighting for what I believe in, and nothing will stop me from fighting those who threaten any of us. Long ago I dedicated my life to the struggle because Tupac helped me see the truth. And to this day, I will honor that promise I made but with more passion and more dedication than ever before.

The government is hurting us. Put race, gender, sexual preferences, religion, etc aside and get along to demand justice that is rightfully ours. Unite against the real enemies! Stop hating one another and wasting time… There are too many real and threatening laws and issues to waste time. That doesn’t mean give up your passion; I simply wish everyone of every background would take a few moments out of their life to do their part. Educate themselves and then others. We have to stop accepting these unjust laws, racism, sexism, police brutality, the horrific war on drugs and prison system…. Stop accepting life how it is and start working to try and make it better; how it should be.

Whatever it is, just do your part… We all have one.
