Released, Friday, April 15, 2011, TOTT:
The NCIIC created in 2006 by the former Chief Judge, now retired, I Beverly Lake, Jr., of the N.C. Supreme Court purports to "...investigate and evaluate claims of factual innocence..." yet in 1992 he, as an associate Justice of the N.C. Supreme Court, denied a writ of certiorari of my claim of Civil Rights violation of the First Amendment--Free Speech, that was docketed in the U.S. Supreme Court as 92-6940, and published by West Publishing in the N.C. Reporter, 419 S.E. 2d. 578, as a Memorandum Decision.
Because of pressure from Blogs and Facebook, Justice Lake now hopes-- it appears-- to obfuscate his injustice and seeks changes to the Commision he proposed, which is to: "...change, who investigates "factual innocence," to protect his legacy by "turning over the screening process" of cases to a non-profit student law group, whose minions can be influenced and directed by law Professors, who can influence internships; rather than professionals, who have oversight power to enforce punishment for bringing the judiciary into disrepute, as his conduct, and that of Terrence E. Boyle has done. See 5:MC-6, March 25th. 2004, Chief, United States District Court Judge.
Further, the National Chapter of the ACLU, forwarded my claim to the N.C. ACLU, formerly the North Carolina Civil Liberties Union, Inc., Article III (3a), [see articles of Amendment filed, March 03, 1993], * which claims to have been created "To advance the causes of civil liberties in the State of North Carolina, including the rights of free speech...free assemblage, and equality before the law." They have refused to act on my behalf as well.
The N.C. Supreme Court has upheld as free speech the act of "Mooning." The National ACLU takes credit for protecting the rights of Neo-Nazi Groups, Westboro Baptist Church, Polygamist, Guantanamo Terrorists.
In North Carolina, they have through their prior Executive/Legal Director, Deborah Ross, now a member of the N.C. General Assembly, denied my right to "wait in my car" on the former Mall, or "to protest "police" misconduct," a government agent, by silently, gesturing with one finger my discontent, anger, embarrassment of the officer, who then followed my wife [who is white] and I to issue the ticket. While the Arkansas District Court in re: Nichols v. Chacon, 110 F Supp 2d. 1099. , decrees that Symbolic Speech is well-established, and protected as Free Speech under the Constitution.
While my latest N.C.Division of Motor Vehicle Driving Record shows the 02-14-92 conviction for Running Red Light, this event occured the date of the gesture, [now removed from the report] was followed my making a left-turn-on-red at the Intersection of [then] two intersecting one-way streets, clearing the intersection--required by law-- for approaching bluelight and siren, or emergency vehicles. MVLNC 20-157.
I have received no notice from the State of any change in the record, or consideration of my request submitted in writing to members of the General Assembly, the N.C. Supreme Court, and the Governor for an apology, and some modest compensation for this 19 years of abuse--two years longer than Gregory Taylor's claim of innocence and exoneration, though the State has pardoned Taylor, and an 1871 former Governor Holden, who was the first Governor to be impeached.
Does it make a difference that Taylor and Holden were White to do the right thing?
That’s my perspective! What’s yours?
