Your court negligently forgot to remove one of my warrants. & because of your careless negligence. I was disqualified for a job, I had received a job offer for a better paying job . Your court should have known that the careless negligent actions would result in serious emotional distress to the plaintiff. The plaintiff could have experienced a number of unfortunate situations, because of your city’s negligence. I had honestly waited to turn in the papers till , I went to court to make sure all the warrants were removed. I gave the employer the signed paper and the go ahead to run my background check the next day after, I went to court and It came back that I had a warrant . Honestly the lady was acting different toward me. First impressions are everything and I told the lady I didn’t have any issues. It was because of your city’s negligence, I was disqualified from a better paying job. When she ran my background check a warrant from your city popped up. I explained to her, I went to court yesterday and It was suppose to be removed with the other ones. But, she told me It didn’t matter . I was disqualified. I have documentation to prove that, I lost a job opportunity because of that warrant. That situation created emotional distress. I was sad because I worked to find a better job, to help provide for my family. & then to be disqualified because of your cities negligence, put a burden on me. Your city’s careless negligence has forced me to work a lesser paying job. 2.An officer employed at Cleveland heights police department, displayed a level of extreme and outrageous behavior, the type of behavior that exceeded all possible bounds of decency. The officer Javon Jackson lied and impersonated a officer with authority. The officer lied and told me he was in charge of removing warrants. Officer Jackson tried to use aggressive threats and intimidation tactics as a way to scare me into coming into the police station. Officer Javon Jackson threaten to come to my house, (a house out of his jurisdiction, to do unspeakable acts to me) The Severe act of menacing has left me emotionally distraught and has put me in fear for me and my families lives. I tried to pursue a protection order to protect me and my family. Unfortunately, my protection was denied. I feel exposed, helpless and unprotected against a officer who has threaten to come to my place of residence to do an unspeakable act, only adding to my Severe Emotional distress. 3.The plaintiff states, The City Of Cleveland Heights Is solely liable for the Severe Emotional Distress of the plaintiff. The Defendant (The City of Cleveland Heights), & the defendant’s Employees (police officers, government officials, court appointed officials), Agents and Representatives initiated and were the sole and primary cause of the Plaintiff’s Severe emotional Distress. 4.On July 6, 2018, The Plaintiff was seen and evaluated by a Psychiatrist in a desperate effort to pursue treatment of his Severe Emotional Distress. (Paranoia, Panic attacks, Anxiety, Nightmares, restless nights). & Is now receiving counseling and treatment for the severe symptoms of the emotional distress. I meet all (4) Qualifications, and I am Prepared to speak. I believe that the jury will be moved by my case. The empathy for me after I speak, will outweigh any & everything.   “(4) the plaintiff suffered mental anguish that is serious and of a nature that no reasonable person could be expected to endure it” I can personally guarantee, no member of any Jury would be able to endure, this series of unfortunate events.

Petition to Andover Police, Andover Residents, Paul J. Salafia, Andrew Flanagan, Massachusetts residents, Elizabeth Warren, Barbara L'Italien, James Lyons, Massachusetts Governor, Edward Markey, Russell Holmes, John Keenan, Sheldon Berman, Patrick Keefe, M. Colford, Philip Conrad, Director , Cory Booker

63y Black Woman Attacked by Andover Mass. Chief of Police Patrick Keefe. Sign for Resign!

READ WHAT HAPPENED HERE When I entered the Andover public safety building on October 5, 2017, and declared that I would remain there until someone speaks with me about the concerns that I had expressed over the phone, I essentially triggered the First Amendment. Subsequently, any action by any police officer to infringe upon my Firs Amendment guarantees, was going to necessarily be unconstitutional, including any attempt to physically remove or arrest me. The bottom line is that if I were to be removed by any means other than due process of law, at that time, such action was bound to collide with the First, Fourth, Fifth, and the Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution. See U.S. Supreme Court Tennessee v. Garner (1985). Police Perversion of the United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights After their racially-driven and unconstitutional arrests, fraudulent use of the civil commitment law, hoax criminal charges and harassment, all failed to deter me from demanding accountability from the Town of Andover and its Police Department and Fire and Rescue Department, a Chief Commander who also should be fired, called the Police Chief when he was off-duty, to come into the police station to handle something such “so-called” Chief Commander should have been able to manage by himself, especially, since I had written down for them two of several ways they could have legally brought my protest to an end: (1) A police officer, or anyone else, for that matter, could have come into the lobby and talk to me. I would have waited if they were busy, and that would have addressed and resolved the reason for my protest in the first place; or (2)They had the means and a dedicated video and audio set up to seek an immediate injunction within the comfort of the building, people like me contribute to pay for. Had they chosen to use that readily available mean, and they prevailed, I would have gone home to appeal any such injunction, but I would waited at home for the Appeals Court’s decision. What is really ironic, and almost Shakespearean, is that they were very likely to get injunctive relief, even on my appeal, in which case, the ruling judge would have framed the parameters for my protest, for not even a judge can tell anyone that they have to stop protesting. How Did a Chief of Police Go so Berserk? The Chief Commander and the Chief of Police did not want to do anything that would fall under the legal jurisdiction of the court. I am holding back on mentioning the names of these individuals for now, out of a sense of deference for the residents of the Town of Andover. I want to afford Andover Town residents the kind of benefits Andover Town officials have intentionally and recklessly denied me.That is a chance to finally do the right thing. I did give this Town and every official, police and otherwise, the benefit of the doubt for 7 years, until I did not. Now, I am re-instating that benefit to them temporarily, to see if they have the capacity to earn it back. They also had the option to make up some false pretense, as they are very good at doing, and had done before, to arrest me. That would have been unconstitutional, but at least, it would not have been the brutal felony assault and battery this unfit Chief of Police and his co-conspiring Commander ended up perpetuating on me. What they did was, rather than taking any of the several legal routes at their fingertips, they chose to scrape the very bottom of their dirty bag of tricks for the last, filthiest, and illegal trick: The illegal use of force, resulting in severe injury to me. The Residents of Any Town Must Be Too Proud for This! No Town deserves a Police Chief who so obviously shows himself or herself to be a possible danger to its residents. There are too many elephants laying around in our police departments, our legislatures, our courts, and in town offices. We all know where they are. Ignoring them will not make them go away. They will simply continue to undermine and compromise the structure and foundation of the rights, privileges, and immunities, the Founding Fathers built into the checks and balances system, and left behind. Those are the best things we have going for us, and the only things that makes America Great in any meaningful way. To allow this particular Police Chief to get away with such reckless act and illegal conduct, along with the violation of well-established rights, would defile the sacrifices of those who have fought to secure life, liberty, and justice for all in this country. These are ideals that we are still trying to achieve. It will take time, even more sacrifices by my many — some famous and others unsung heroes, as well as determination and staying-power to help give birth to, thus contribute to the formation of that more Perfect Union. In order to safeguard the integrity of the Town of Andover, the community at large and the nation must demand accountability from this Police Department and Town officials. Chief Patrick Keefe must be made to resign, be fired, or undergo a mental health evaluation to ensure that, under the right set of circumstances, he will not attack and injure anyone else who is freely and peacefully exercising rights that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Petition to Mike DeWine

Voices for Mackenzie Basham

My daughter Mackenzie Basham pled guilty to 9 counts of burglary in August 2014. She was advised by her attorney to take a deal unethically. She was 19, with a prior of 2 seat belt violations at time of arrest. Allen County Sheriff Samuel A. Crish made a statement publicly of others involved in these crimes in May 2014. No other persons were brought in on any charges associated with this case.Allen County Prosecutor, Juergen A. Waldick, also knew of others involved in these crimes.The head Crime scene investigator on her case was police sergeant Fredrick DePalma. DePalma, 49, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2015 for 35 counts of theft in office and 24 counts of tampering with evidence. He committed the police misconduct on cases in 2014.  DePalma signed every single piece of evidence in Mackenzie's discovery packet against her in 2014. Mackenzie admitted to having stolen property in her apartment and car and being paid to take it to pawn shops. The sentencing judge said aloud that drugs and the "wrong" crowd had put Mackenzie in this situation. In a courtroom full of Mackenzie's family and friends, not one official of Allen County said a word as she pled guilty out of pure fear to every single one of these crimes alone. That would mean 9 burglaries in 3 days, done by one 19 year old girl. She was given a 14 year sentence.  Mackenzie had a 2 year old baby at the time of sentencing, he is now 6 years old.  Please help me be a voice to get Mackenzie a shorter sentence so she can be reunited with her son before 2028. In 2028 her son will be 17 years old, and my daughter will be 34 years old. She has served enough time for her involvement in these crimes and has learned a very difficult lesson. She is now drug free and ready to have a second chance on life. She is a loving mother and a beautiful caring person. She is ready to function in society in a positive way now at 23 years old.  Please help me be her voice on the outside by signing this petition. My goal is to get Mackenzie a commutation of her sentence. This would make her sentence shorter and give an encouraging light at the end of the tunnel for our family who loves her so much. Positive letters of support for Mackenzie can be sent to: Ohio Parole Board Mackenzie Basham #090219 770 West Broad St, Columbus Ohio 43222.
