      Blandon, PA

On 5/1/11 when my 21 year old son was found in the parking lot of the Legends Bar laying unconscious with a glascow coma scale of 3 in a pool of blood and gelled cerebrospinal fluid with near absent V.S. that he had to be intubated on sight with multiple I.V.s and a cardiac moniter requiring B.P.and cardiac stimulating drugs in leiu of defibrillation. His good friend who saw the bouncer throw him out the door, followed him to the parking lot and called 911 and reported the assault of the prior felon bouncer. 2Muhlenberg cruisers arrived. So did the Muhlenberg Paramedics with tremendous speed to a level 1 trauma unit to emergency neurosurgery. My son sustained 21 skull fractures,8 facial fractures,8 bones in his right ear fractured, Right hemispheric subdural hematoma, Left axial bleed and every main artery in his brain ruptured. He was on life support for 10 days. He has permant brain damage but we are very lucky to have him. Three of his doctors say "You shouldn't be alive."He also sustained a torn right rotator cuff, diminished vision and is deaf in his Right ear. I say all of this because the detective in this case, not the responding officer and the D.A. seem to not be able to read the Pa.Criminal Code. We have spoken to 7 other law enforcement Pa. officers including the head of the Pa. State Police,a Chief of Police,3 Detectives,apatrolmen and a sheriff. All said the bouncer should have been charged with attempted murder and arrested on the spot. Instead after 81/2 weeks only the bouncer was charged with 2 mismeaner charges on a prior felon. The police report was very fraudulent and did not reflect any of the information that the detective told us the night of my sons injury when he visited the neurointensive care/O.R. area at 2AM. When he said that "my sons did nothing wrong. They reviewed the tapes."Before leaving the detective asked my older son if he thought his brother might have "rolled down the steps or jumped out the door?" That is when I asked himto leave. My sons neurosurgeon-who has been recognized as one of the best in the country said"his injuries were like someone had thrown him from a low flying plane. And that he has never taken care of a live person with 21 skull fractures." The detective seems to have forgotten about the 13+2 witnesses who saw the bouncer throw my son. The detective seems to have forgotten about the neo-nazi friend who asphyxiated my son 13 minutes prior to being thrown out of the club. My son had to be rescued by 2 friends and his older brother because he was purple/blue with his eyes rolled back in his head and he was unconscious. The neo-nazi had him in a "death choke hold."The neo- nazi was accompanied by 2 others and are friends withthe bouncer. The detective referred to the neo-nazis on the tape at the hospital on two occasions when reviewing the incident with my older son at the hospital neurointensive care waiting room. I was a witness.As well as my husband. The whereabouts of those tapes are in huge question! When my son was aroused to consciousness from the asphyxiation he walked across the floor in a stupor to retieve his Philadelphia Phillies hat when the bouncer grabbed him from behind by the neck and belt,carried him to the door and threw him through the air just as his injuries reflect. His CAT scan and neurological report both report assault#1 and#2 occurring on 5/1/11. The CAT scan injury #2 is the asphyxiation due to the arterial damage. How can the responding officers report of 13+witnesses and the Pa.LCB investigation that my son is avictim and the bouncer used excessive force? The answer is corruption. For years the Muhlenberg police have gotten away with destroying tapes and evidence as they have in this case to not convict the bouncer. They and the D.A. are supposed to be working for the state. They are not. They are working for Legends. Every witness -additional that has come forward they discredit saying "they dont admit to drinking so they must be on drugs."Legends is a drug bar.Berks county doesnt like drug trials and your son couldnt go through that. Thats interesting Legends is a Lounge where college students, business men, and local lawyers go. Even the D.A. has been spotted there. The detective has submitted a fraudulent police report that neglected to mention the injuries my son sustained. When I called the District Justice Office the day of the Preliminary to see what time the hearing was the secretary insisted that I bring my 21 year old son to testify for his hearing. I told her He just got off of life support. She was shocked. But the DA's office Mr.Adams was ready for a plea bargain just as I expected. He wouldn't talk to me from day 1.What are these laws called -victims rights? The D.A. and Muhlenberg police haven't respected one of them or my sons right to prosecute the criminals who have so seriously injured him for the rest of his life. These criminals are directly in reach but you are protecting the liquor license , insurance companies that cover Legends and that license and the criminals themselves. Not to mention the civil rights violations. I believe they call this obstrucion of justice,fraud,extortion,etc. How long do you expect people to put up with it? If you check the Pa. LCB records for at least the last 3 years all bouncer caused injuries of patrons were prosecuted at the criminal/felony level for every other disciplinary action in the state. This hasnt happened at all in a review of Legends LCB records since 2006. Also there hasnt been any discipliary actionor reports for the multple injuries sustained there requiring treatment-one a relative. Multiple DUI'sand deaths. I know of 2 personally and witnessed 2 accidents leaving. There have been 2 deaths -one inside, one outside. You would never know by looking at LCB records.Lastly there is a huge conflict of interest with the Muhlenberg police investigating my sons case due to D.A.s close involvement with Lodge 71 of the FOP . He has many accolades for them and has announced his bid for re-ection at their FOP meeting hall. His exact words were on 1/28/11 to that Lodge 71 "We're going to work hard to to protect our streets,and to prosecute the cases to take violent criminals off the streets." I'm not sure he meant that in my sons case. The Muhlenberg Township Police have served as the private police force for Legends since 2006 with as many as 8 cruisers on weekends writing many citations for DUIs as patrons leave to assaults,etc. They have no trouble with probable cause then.-as with the bouncer. They arrest people in their parking lot according to their history of incident reports since 2006 for more than the prior felon bouncer was arrested for. And that took 81/2 weeks. I asked the D.A.-ADA repeatedly to investigate the Muhlenberg police due to the conflict of interest. That never happened. I asked why he didnt use his 27 special victims unit. I never got an answer. They laughed at the FBI. The D.A. has been critcized bythe editor of the local newspaper for his lack of transparancy when it comes to his handling ofcriminal matters of the FOP. One of these matters involves apolice officer that works at Legends. He was recently recently arrested for putting a gun down his wife's mouth while pinning her to the floor while their daughter watched.This officer also has other citations. All of this wasn't prosecuted until prompted by the editor amongst other officer cases. Mr. D.A. I hope that you reconsider and do the right thing so that legends doesn't continue with its" license to kill."Perhaps your loyalty is being challenged however my son has always said "it is what is." He is the victim here!He also is a big Boon Dog Saints fan-Truth and Justice will prevail !

      Initially I reported this incident to the Allentown office district manager who assigned it to her. I dont recall his name buthe did comment that he was just finnishing an investigation of an injury there from the month before. Both he and the Allentown investigator were involved in the first few weeks. Both said my son was "an innocent victim and didnt deserve any of this." All of this was going on when my son was in very serious condition on life support fighting for his life. So now these ever corrupt law enforcement professionals seem to think they have the self entitled right to bury the facts, hide the insurance payouts,pay lawyers upfront, sideline LCB reports as required by every other license in the state. How doyou get around 2 police car-Muhlenberg @aprox0115 on 5/1/11,1 paramedic unit-Muhlenberg@0115 Both to Legends to transport my son Level 1 trauma intubated,bagged on cardiac moniter, B.p.support, grave condition to emergency neurosugery after a reported bouncer assault.

      of the material." You must see the administrative law judge. Now I wonder what they have to hide in addition to the DA calling theLCB agent influencing her report that never made it to his desk. The 2 criminal charges that should have been filed by him 5 months ago considering my son should have died and was on life support. He was considered to be a victim by the responding officer and the LCB State Polce Officer and still no action. No charges. ONe fraudelent , lying, bastard fired since 10/7/11 lawyer. And the most corrupt police force I've ever seen along with the community. Then there's Legends themselves. One only has to read thehundres of facebook enties,e-mails toall of our family members,cards and letters. Then there is the star player the DA himself. Father of 4 daughters. What a role model. Thug of the year. My father raised four girls with a PHD in psychology and it probably took that. But with this kind of behavior it may lead to your own demise. Your girls need you.!

      Each time I attempt investigation of the situation Attorney General, Disciplinary Board, U.S.Attorney,FBI I am impeaded by relationshipof lawsuit and DA. Yesterday I was told by a local Reading FBIagent ."Well what Do want me to do?" regarding the DA" "If he isnt taking money" I would think that bribing the LCB for years by throwing investigations is agood start. Investigating every civil suit for possible payoffs as is going on in my sons case might help. He said "well maybe you know some political favor you could pull down." well I know one better. Mr. Adams wasnt called the most corrupt DA in the county for nothing along with my sons ex lawyer and his side kicks. NO ONE has to put up with this up this. You know from the looks of it and 10 years of recovery plus very first hand been there done that witness statement Mr. Adams your Behavior mirrors that of a very selfish addicts, pomp individual with that "stinkin thing."Have you been toany meetings lately?

      ing his share of Jordans competency. When he wants him to sign papers or lie to him, delude him or mislead him about the lawsuit well then he is competent. But when it comes to firing him he is incompetent. I have 2 attorneys in my family both much more accomplished, respected and disgusted by this whole lawsuit and DA behavior,s.fiasco. After yesterdays encounter with yet the second attempt to hire another Lawyer I was told three times" I have never heard of this lawyer." and that most importantly " are you sure that they have insurance?" when in fact he told us that THEY didand sued multiple entities and was working with them. He then said that our lawyer could get a rediculously loe settlement that might cover 3/4 of my son's medical bills. This is a settlement for the firm Ross, Feller and Casey? Idont think so! This is fraud! This lawyer obviously took money up front and is drowning. Too bad! That is why the Disciplinary board, Attorney General, Attorney General Special Invest

      I would expect no less. His name is Chris Griffiths. Thats right.If you have enough balls to go on facebook and brag about promises of not being charged and evidence disappearing and that prior felon bouncer Jobin Grandstrom and you are are a" lethal force together." Well then MAN UP BOYS because that is what you, your detective and lawyers are. BOYS with the Berks County DA Corruption team that can match no other. The tragedy of all of this is that it occurred in Muhlenberg Township where my unkle was superintendent of schools for many years and well respected in the community. His daughter a validictorian. My father was top administration for the largest school district in Berks County for many years where mymother also taught. My youngest sister was the validictorian and Junior Miss for Fleetwodd Area School District and now an M.D. married to an accomplished engineer.My older son will marry into J&J Princeton,N.J with many more notables. Think of the effect.

      The Muhlenberg Police voted to dissent and over road them. Now that sounds like good community support considering the State police reports they submit and all the hearings they have to go to..The question is what does Legends really have to offer ?

      This phone call "early on in the case" influenced her decision to alter her report and to not submit it to the Judicial section of the LCB for discipline as she should have. I discovered this by calling her superiors. This piece of information along with the fraudulent police reports, minus the victims injuries and disalloance of appropriate charges on a consistent basis for how many years? Plus the outrageous torts of spoliation that I have been told are illegal and have 3 law firms ready to sue for had that gone through. Plus the amazing disappearance of how many commonwealth Court records filed for Gamma Cor/Legends in Berks County since 2006. @006 is when Mr. Adams took office. 2006 is when Legends LCB records began looking like they were a church organization. There is no other bar/ lounge that preferential treatment like this in Berks County. The Muhlenberg Police State response records to Legends probably speak for themselves and top most municipalities for one year.

      know they voted. Their votes are'nt there. The DA must be worried or the lawyers. Well they are in for more!People are disgusted. What did they expect. More witnesses keep coming up saying that the police or DA refused to interview them. This case is by far a jury case and nothing else! Jordan will not be bullyied, threated,lied to or knuckled under as obviously the DA and his co-hort detive and insurance lawyers have done in the past. I believe they call this insurance fraud-perhaps on a grand scale from the looks of it. Why would they be so aggressive about hiding their numerous court civil records. Every civil suit means that the charges cannot rise above misdemeanor even if it is attempted murder just as my sons. I was told that repeatedly."you wont get that. Yet throughout the state every other DA charges appropriately. Hitler died in WWII. This is more than a DA exercising his political right! This extends to 2006 according to Berks County prothonatary records and Pa.LCB records

      I visited the Berks County court house to check my sons record which had been changed without notifying myself or him. And then I asked to see the remainder of Legends records which are public record. They fall under the federal and state "right to know law." She said "which ones? There are thousands as she flipped through the screens of approx 8-10 entries per screen dating to 2005. Well there were'nt thousands but more than my original estimate because she wasnt near done flipping screens. I said well I dont have time to day for all of this but I will be back. The next morning by 9 am I was only to find one computer set up working and only 2 and1/4 pages of entries from 2005,2 entries from 2006 then nothing till 2010, and 2011.. 2010 and 2011 were not complete. I know of 6 other injuries than my sons with cases none of those were here. Amazing the influence these lawyers have on an elected official-the prothonatary and the nerve they have to violate Commonwealth Court Records. Fear?

      I can't believe this even happened!! Jordan sounds like a wonderful young man and I pray that he will recover. I was especially touched by his mother's recollecxtion of him being so kind to his disabled neighbor. I have a 23 year old son brain damaged from seizures sustained soon afrter his very premature, 24 weeks, birth. We love him dearly and grieve daily for the child he could have been. No matter what Jordan's eventual outcome will be, he will benefit from all the love prayers and support given to him by his family, concerned friends and strangers Aggressive behavior from bouncers must be prosecuted to the law's fullest extent.
