Justice for Bart Jameson
Justice for Bart Jameson
The Criminal Justice System is failing this victim and family. Please take a moment and sign this petition. Here is a statement made by his brother pleading for someone to help his brother receive the justice he deserves. Bart Jameson deserves the system to seek that justice.
July 10, 2019, at 1:30 will be a motion hearing in Pittsburg County Courthouse. If Bart's state's constitutional rights been violated in any way shows that this system is not going by the constitution and should be held accountable. https://www.oscn.net/dockets/GetCaseInformation.aspx?db=pittsburg&number=CF-2019-00051&cmid=36126
Statement by his brother Carl Jameson
To whom it may concern,
I am reaching out to you regarding the murder of my brother Bart Jameson, on January 30, 2019. Brenda Burdue Savage, the woman who was arrested, admitted she shot Bart and eyewitness accounts reported she did so "for no reason". She was released on $100,000 bond the following day, January 31, 2019, by Special Judge Mindy Beare. As our friends and family gathered the evening of February 1, 2019 to view the body of Bart Jameson for the final time before his body was turned into ash, the family and friends were receiving multiple notifications that Brenda Burdue Savage was in town at the tribal casino, the tribe of which Bart Jameson was a lifelong tribal member, gambling and then later at other establishments in the McAlester area. The assistant district attorney, Adam Scharn, asked for $100,00 bail versus the standards $1,000,000 bond. She made bond and has been free since her release from jail on 1/31/19. If the roles were reversed, and my cousin, a minority (Native American Choctaw & Chickasaw) man admittedly shot and killed this woman, would he be granted the same leniency? There have been 2 cases since this event, in the same county, in which the bond for the same charge has been set at a million dollars. Her release was a slap in the face of our family and friends and her actions since her release continues to pour salt in our wounds. It would seem that a person with no criminal history, several recent reports of disruptive behavior in local establishments and heavily medicated with prescriptions (which strongly recommend not mixing with alcohol) presents a public safety issue to the community. She has managed to avoid being present in front of the judge since this time. I am reaching out to you in hopes that you would take a few hours of your busy time and attend her first hearing as we will ask that bail be revoked on June 4, 2019, at the Pittsburg county courthouse in McAlester, OK. Our family does not have money or clout in the area but Bart was a lifelong, active member of the Choctaw community, was raised and participated in ceremonial dances but above all deserves the respect allowed to capital murder victims. Our grandmother, Laura Lucille Hancock-Jameson was proud to be a full-blood Choctaw/Chickasaw woman and a well-respected elder of the Native American community. I was told it was unlikely that you would actually attend, but I respectfully plea for your presence during this critical hearing on June 4th at 1:30 p.m.as we want her bond revoked until she is tried for this murder and feel that representation from invested community stakeholders of tribal and state representatives on the front row would help us communicate our desperate plea for justice in this case. Please respond post haste and let us know, as a family, if you are able to attend to help us ensure not only justice for him but safety for the rest of our family and community as this woman roams freely among us. I am enclosing my contact information in hopes of a response from you regarding this matter.
