Matt’s Letter to the Tenth Circuit Court
Apr 11, 2019 —
Friends and Supporters, this is the letter that Matt wrote to the Tenth Circuit Court after his Petition for Rehearing was denied.
Office of the Clerk
Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals
1823 Stout Street
Denver, CO 80257
Re: Case No. 18-1141 Hale v. Federal Bureau of Prisons et al.
To the Court:
I am compelled, as a matter of honor and respect for who I am and all that which I hold dear, to protest for the record the severe mistreatment which I have suffered at the hands of the judges in this case. The fact of the matter is that I won this case overwhelmingly and yet you wouldn’t let me win. The fix was in as soon as this case landed on your lap and I am quite frankly ashamed to be an American where such things are possible. Do you not understand that it is your job to uphold the law and not violate it? That the Constitution of the United States binds your actions and not the other way around? That “equal justice under law” is supposed to be a practice and not just a cute slogan? Where is “equal justice granted to me, my religion, and my church, I ask? Instead of upholding our rights, you yourselves have violated them. Where though is the remedy for your illegal acts?
I say all of this on the premise that any of you actually read my Petition for Rehearing, which I doubt for the simple fact of the matter is that any and every court interested in justice would have reheard this case for the numerous reasons stated therein. The panel’s decision was and is devoid of any lawful basis and is thus null and void as far as Creators are concerned. Creators do not negotiate the exercise of their religious rights and their religion-the one true Faith- will outlast the persecutions of its (((foes))).
