Someone Is Mad

I received this email this afternoon. For the record, I have only received one of the many emails Paul Bergrin sent me in the last two weeks. From what I was told, he received a couple of the five or six that I sent him.

My emails were simply some questions on the ID channel's fictional documentary and statements made by participants (attorneys). If the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) considers such questions some sort of threat, well, they lost their focus a long time ago, but then we already knew that.


from: CorrLinks <info@corrlinks.com>

date: Mon, Aug 10, 2015 at 3:52 PM
subject: Inmate: BERGRIN, PAUL
mailed-by: corrlinks.com

This message informs you that you have been blocked from communicating with the above-named federal prisoner because the Bureau has determined that such communication is detrimental to the security, good order, or discipline of the facility, or might facilitate criminal activity. The prisoner with whom you were communicating is being informed of this block. You may appeal this block within 15 days of the date of this message by submitting a written request to the Warden of the prison where the prisoner is located. You should include a copy of this notice, an explanation of your appeal request, and any additional documents or information you wish to be considered.



This is my appeal:


Dear Government Lackey Scumbag and Overseer at Guantanamo North, Terre Haute, Indiana,

GFY. Consider this my appeal.

Worst Regards,

me


Obviously, some people do not want you to know the truth about this case. Emailing Paul has been a major puzzle since he went to Guantanamo North anyway and he rarely received any of my emails.

UPDATE on August 11, 2015 @6:30pm -

I was reading through the emails from the last 2 weeks that Paul clearly never received and one was a lengthy email concerning the case, various statements / certifications and the William Baskerville case, which connects to this one in relation to the Kemo murder. It may be that email that the CMU had issue with as I have never been able to receive or respond to case related emails since Paul went to this CMU. They don't want anyone helping him in any way.

There was one other 1-sentence email informing Paul that he needed to get a copy of the recent Order on the William Baskerville 2255 because the judge ordered the government to produce a list of documents and recordings. I can't even mail Paul any case related documents at this CMU and only attorneys can mail this stuff, which is completely absurd, but revealing - they don't want him to make any progress with his appeal and his own 2255. What other possible reason could there be to forbid mailing of case documents available in PACER?

So, no clue if it is this blog and posts from the last two weeks or discussion of Paul's case and certifications and documents. Either way, they want him to be incommunicado in relation to anyone except his attorneys, and I have heard they're giving him trouble on the legal calls as well.

How do you fight a case if you are not even allowed to discuss it? We can be sure that's the point.

Stopping Mr Paul Bergrin to communicate with you Vicky is like not allowing him
to present his defence and protect his rights like it has been done since the very
beginning of his trial. Our country has become dangerous to live in.

Vicky Gallas said...

I do agree, but it's been that way for a long time in the US.

Paul and I have never exchanged emails often anyway though and almost all emails are about the case. I have sent him very few emails since he's been at Guantanamo North because I am well aware of how monitored communications are there and most case discussion must be private. So, really anything in the last 2 weeks was mostly about this stupid show, with exception to the case email already noted. When I typed it I just figured I didn't give a crap what they did to it, because if I can't say something I need to say, then emails are useless for us anyway.

Nothing mysterious and just responding to Paul's statement that he read William Baskerville's 2255 response and that he needed to include another affidavit to address a specific situation. The fact is that in regards to Anthony Young's testimony, there are distinct differences between Paul's trials and William's trial. I had to point out one major difference that Paul had to be unaware of. Now Paul is still unaware of it.

Not clear on how BOP considers such a discussion to be a problem.

Anonymous said...

@vicky this not good news this blog was the life line for paul as far as the outside world concern, and your communication was even more important always and still support paul and this blog but let's be clear on this they were looking for a reason to remove you just wish it turned out different. Not to get off the topic but Casey Anthony was found not guilty as you pointed out in a previous post that we discussed and i always believed she did not kill her daughter but do agree she knew something( Father) however i hope in some miracle way they allow you and paul EMail each other for the sake of the case SMH.

@the last Anonymous

Really this blog was about the trial (#2) and the court docs. It was started because of the "baddest lawyer in nj" article and to counter the lies. And, still no real idea if the email block is because of the blog and statements on the fictional documentary OR the case discussion in the email. That is a major issue - there were never any actual rules of what could be discussed in email at this CMU. I used my own discretion when I did email, but these people play the 'everything we do is top secret' game. Same thing they've done to the general population since they started this so-called War on Terror. Bottom line is they're all full of chit.

As for Casey Anthony... I do believe she played a part in her child's death and her father had nothing to do with it, BUT - and this is a capital BUT - the State of Florida never made their case and never provided the answers to the many questions. No jury in their right mind convicts a defendant on the word of the government alone, and this was a mixed-up investigation, thanks to our former sheriff, Kevin Beary.

Nah, no miracle like that will happen. These clowns are far too invested in their show.

Anonymous said...

While these clowns are too far invested in their show, Paul Bergrin is not given
the basic rights to defend his case and is unable to communicate with the outside
world in a democratic way. This is extremely illegal, and worst are these commissary
lists so expensive so that the families have difficulties in paying food for their
love one incarcerated. So, inmates are left starving and lose weight and risk to
become ill or even die. Then they do not receive medical treatments of any sort and
are left to die and suffer alone. This is extremely criminal, no respect of human
life whatsoever. Our government better start looking very seriously into his justice system and into his prisons badly administrated. It seems that it is always the same that are there to pick up the cash and popularity. What are we ANIMALS or HUMANS.

Anonymous said...

After reading all your explanations Vicky and what the government has done to destroy the life of Major Paul Bergrin that was only doing his duty as a true
man and attorney should, HOW CAN WE AS AMERICANS TRUST IN ANY WAY OUR JUSTICE
SYSTEM WHICH IS NOTHING BUT CORRUPTED. When will someone finally stand up, stop the injustice, bring the truth to open light and have the guts to solve the problem instead of moving words around. This person should be our next President no one else should be. God bless you Vicky and may all these pieces of crap go to hell and
pay for being evils, cowards, and low lives.

Anonymous said...

Vicky, you mention that Mr. Paul Bergrin is incommunicado at this CMU prison, what
does this mean. We hope he can write or call his family and close friends unless
this would also be against all human rights, is this correct.

Anonymous said...

If Paul Bergrins attorneys have difficulties in contacting him at CMU Terre Haute,
what are they waiting for to do something about this situation. They should have
filed something a long time ago. This man has the democratic rights to place his
appeal like any other US citizen.
It sounds like we have not evolved. CAN WE STILL LIVE FREE WITH THE FEAR THAT ANYONE
CAN CREATE INVENTED STORIES ABOUT OUR LIVES. IN THEIR BELIEF ALL WE HAVE LEFT IS TO DIE ON BATTLE FIELDS OR IN ONE OF OUR PRISONS.

Anonymous said...

God says judge yourself before judging others. In the case of Paul Bergrin
our government is a criminal then he should first judge himself and do his own clean up before judging this man. You solve a problem at the base not at the end.
Our government is definitively WRONG in his actions, he should stand up with
dignity and bravery. Those are real values and that is what citizens expect from him
not the other corrupted attitude.

Anonymous said...

The US government is stopping all these witnesses that know that Paul Bergrin is
innocent to step forward and say the truth. He is threatening and frightening them.
So they cannot come in the open to defend this man when they know that Paul Bergrin is INNOCENT.
We teach our children not to lie but to say the truth, what is our government
teaching us TO DO, IF NOT TO LIE AND LIE OVER AGAIN. WHAT IS THIS. IF YOU DONT CALL IT PURE CORRUPTION WHAT DO YOU THINK IT IS! PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT YOU CALL
THIS. I would like to know.

Anonymous said...

This sounds like abuse of power and not respecting the constitutional rights of every citizen. It is exactly what Paul Bergrin has written and what you have published on this blog. Our country is nothing but MAXIMUM HYPOCRISY. And in
this mans case they have become nothing but cold murderers killing voluntarily
one of its citizens to hide their hypocrisy and guilt. Their hands and minds are really dirty.

Vicky Gallas said...

@Anonymous

I don't know what to say to you. I understand that you're upset about what these dirtbags are doing to Paul Bergrin, as I am also. As far as I am aware, he is currently incommunicado. Several people have reached out to me and no one has had an email or telephone conversation with him this month, or since the last week of August. No one has received regular mail from Paul either, and we both know that Paul writes letters if it is at all possible. Did they take away his pen and paper? It seems so, or they're simply not mailing any letters that he writes.

What have they done to him? I have no clue.

I know all of this can't possibly be because of discussion of his case. An inmate has a right to discuss his case, no matter where the corrupt BOP hides him.

So what have these tyrants done with Paul Bergrin?

History will absolve Paul, but the rest of these f***s will never live down what they've done to him. Eventually even the NY Times will pick-up the story - even if it is years down the road, like with the Iraq debacle. They won't get away with it. The world will know and they will all be named.

Not much else to say here.

Anonymous said...

Justice will prevail and they must all be named and punished as you say. Paul Bergrin will win his case in the long run because he is INNOCENT and this is
the TRUTH. The only question in all this is to understand why the Government is
leaving things last and why he is not facing the situation to find an appropriate
solution. They seems to want Paul Bergrin to die in prison to solve their problem. That is as you say extremely criminal.

Anonymous said...

I hope the Congress listened carefully to the speech of the pope today and that he
understood clearly what he meant between good and bad. It is not good to leave a
man in jail that is innocent and to ruin his life and the ones of his family.
This goes for Mr. Paul Bergrin and others that are imprisoned intentionally but
not guilty.

Anonymous said...

No one gets a fair trial in this country unless they rat and lie on others to save
their ass. This has been proved recently with the case of Kelly Gissendaner executed
last week and the case of Richard Glossip to be executed and still claiming his innocence. The ones that have lied and rated never receive a life sentence, never
are executed even when they commit the criminal act. They are freed or become eligible for parole. Who in the name of God calls this justice! Not me.

Vicky Gallas said...

Really that is two different scenarios you're describing:

1) Few defendants in this country get a fair trial when they plead not guilty and go to trial instead of choosing to setup and/or inform on others.

I know I didn't get a fair trial, but the evidence of agent misconduct was so overwhelming that the jury acquitted me on both counts (Racketeering and Conspiracy to commit Racketeering RICO).

2) Defendants that choose to setup or inform on others plead guilty and never experience a trial.

Defendants choose to do this for a variety of reasons. Could be because they are guilty or because they fear a trial. Or it could be that they're just dirtbags. Most see no other way out and the deal on the table seems like the best option. Some are fooled and/or coerced by agents. My co-defendants were fooled, harassed, threatened and coerced by agents and the main prosecutor committing collusion with the goal of getting rid of me.

And you're 100% correct - nothing described above is justice. We do have rights in the US, however, sometimes we must fight till the end for those rights. If a defendant is not up to the fight, pleading guilty is usually the best plan.

Anonymous said...

WHAT YOU DESCRIBE IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, BUT THERE SHOULD NOT BE THIS FIGHT TILL
THE LAST MINUTE, THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE MORE OPEN TO RECEIVE THE PROOF THAT A PERSON IS INNOCENT. BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT HE DOES. BY THIS RATING SYSTEM HE UNABLES
THE INNOCENCE OF A PERSON TO BE REVEALED. AT THE END THERE IS ONE THAT PAYS
FOR ANOTHER.TO ME THIS SYSTEM HAS NO EQUILIBRIUM IN THE PROCESS OF JUSTICE.
Justice, you know which one I mean, the one that is represented by this little scale.

Vicky Gallas said...

The government doesn't care if a defendant is innocent, guilty, or something in-between. Agents and prosecutors do not represent the people and are not on a quest for justice. They think they can get a guilty plea or a guilty verdict, they go for it - period.

What you describe is what the inexperienced general population believes the US criminal justice system is, but in reality what we actually have here is far from this. I remember the day I figured out that they didn't care that I could show a few papers and prove that I wasn't guilty of what I was accused of - the judge cut me off quickly, stating, "That's what trials are for," and I realized that they would rather screw up my entire life than listen for 5 lousy minutes. And then I remember the day I realized that they knew I was not guilty as charged.

I had a 2 part awakening to the sick system we seem stuck with here

Anonymous said...

All I know in very simple words is that our justice system and President Obama
do not have the right to unable Mr. Paul Bergrin to communicate with his attorneys
or the outside world to prepare his case like they are doing presently. This must
not go on because it is absolutely wrong and Mr.Paul Bergrin must have the right
to speak out for his defence. Honestly, this system has to change to better
our country.

Anonymous said...

The real logical story of Paul Bergrin is that he knows too much about the injustices committed by our government during the Iraq war. So, to shut him up
they found a way to incarcerate him for life through witnesses they paid. They
starved him in prison at Oklahoma while he was being transferred to Tucson. Since then he has tried to reach the outside world to prepare his defence. They stopped him from doing so by transferring him to the CMU at Terre haute, as if he was a
terrorist!
At the Communication Management Unit, he still cannot communicate with outside because he knows too much. So, what is their next move or criminal action in the Paul Bergrin saga. Thank God, you are here Vicky to write the truth.

Vicky Gallas said...

Well Anonymous, I am no longer writing about Paul's saga. I feel that the information is available to those that want to know the facts and truth. What I have run into is idiots that read a couple of mainstream news articles and perhaps a Wikipedia entry and then claim to know all about it. Some idiot that I encountered on my other blog a few weeks ago did exactly that, but I was not aware of how stupid he was until he sent me a FB friend request, I added him, and later read what he stated to his Facebook audience of 1. He tried very hard to be my friend - and I absolutely believe that he was on a mission for someone involved in this fiasco. Coincidentally, he is in Newark, though we all know there are no real coincidences in life.

At any rate, I have life to deal with. I hope that Paul is okay, but he truly is incommunicado, so I have no real idea. I did hear recently that Don Diva - the online magazine - was supposedly running a story about Paul, but if they have, I do not see it anywhere. Another one bites the dust?

Anonymous said...

There are no physical evidence linking Paul Bergrin to any of the crimes he has
been accused of. Just made up stories and the fact that he was present as a defence
criminal attorney, but that was HIS JOB. So, once again these people that rat get
away with it while innocents have to pay. Come on what is this, not very intelligent
on behalf of the prosecutors, as you say Vicky a general FIASCO. Judge Martini sure
was the smart one in all this.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

And they were definitely MAD that he did his job well. I believe many defense attorneys decide cases over a game of golf with prosecutors, but Paul didn't fit that status quo and they needed to be rid of him. A couple of them (mainly Roberts) literally stole his open cases. And look at the Vicente Esteves crap - Every time I rehash this case in my mind, I get damn mad at the idiots that bought this show hook, line and sinker, because either they're dumb as dirt or in collusion with the government for their own reasons. Judge Martini saw it for the parade of lies that it is.

@the Anonymous that has attempted to leave the same long comment repeatedly for 2 days now. It's not going to be published. Why?

You start out pretending to be Paul's longtime friend. You quote Fran and then twist any meaning in the quote. You definitely have a main statement incorrect and all of your other statements ride on the timeline of that statement. I am 100% positive it's wrong because I have real dates in documents, but you use the incorrect statement to spread what I believe to be gossip and lies about Paul's personal life. To publish your long comment would require a response with a document to prove your timeline of dates is incorrect, and then that would still leave the gossip and/or lies that cannot be proved or disproved sitting on the table (the blog). So forget about it and move on. Not going to play.

Vicky did you hear about the Chilcot Report in the UK on the Irak war. The publication of this report is constantly being delayed. Would you say that what it
contains has to stay secret forever just as what Major Paul Bergrin knows about
the Irak war. The citizens of our country and of the world have the right to know
exactly what happened. Major Paul Bergrin does not have to pay for the mistakes and
responsibilities of others, he is entitled to live and not be sacrificed.

This morning on facebook ex Prime Minister Tony Blair apologizes for all the
mistakes he did in the Irak war (Chilcot report). This also goes for President
Bush, they agreed together. Now the truth is coming out, and what is going to
happen to Major Paul Bergrin, are you going to do something for this innocent
man, are you going to stand up to all your responsibilities and give him back
his life and bring him home to his family. Please give for once in your lives
an example of justice, bravery and values. This would be a REAL CHANGE for our
country.

Vicky Gallas said...

Mistakes??? They're both war criminals that have heavily profited and helped their war criminal pals to profit from an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation state. Millions of people have died because of their so-called "mistakes". Europe is now flooded with refugees from their wars that continue today.

What in the hell did they say in a Facebook video that made you feel better about all of that? As long as they're both not on trial for war crimes, I won't be watching the video of lies, misinformation and excuses. When they're finally arrested along with Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest of the war criminals, I will watch their damn video.

After six tours in Iraq and all what Paul Bergrin has given to our society,

we have incarcerated him in a prison based on lies and perjuries This is how we treat our soldiers after all their sacrifices. We have nothing to be proud of. This man deserves much better treatment plus compensation for his sufferings.
You are dearly remembered Mr. Bergrin on this remembrance day for what you truly

@ vicky do you have the transcripts to the hakeem curry trial if so can you please post them.

Anonymous said...

At the time Paul Bergrin was only the attorney of Hakeen Curry, he never physically
killed anyone or even wanted to kill anyone, NO WITNESS NO CASE does not make a man guilty of crime, those are only words not actions and you can apply them to any legal case. It seems that most of criminal defence attorneys have to be implied in
the criminality of their clients. But that is WRONG, it should not be. They wire
these criminal attorneys and then say they are guilty because of words not actions.
But they are only doing their job under oath just like a doctor. I don't see freedom
of speech and opinions in all this.

Why wasn't Eric dock so-called journal put into evidence ?

Anonymous said...

Good turkey day to all

Vicky Gallas said...

@Anonymous on the Eric Dock journal:

The answer is from William Baskerville as the government first attempted to get it admitted in his trial:

Well, the Dock log, as the government called it, wasn't put into evidence because Judge Pisano felt that it contained a variety of hearsay statements that were more prejudicial then probative, so he barred it from being admitted into evidence. So the government couldn't get it in. Trust me, they tried to, but Pisano wasn't having it.

END

Hope that answers your question. I know that Dock was a real piece of work, a criminal informant that was given free passes on his many crimes, in exchange for his lies in testimony in both the William Baskerville and Paul Bergrin trials.

Pisano? Oy vey.

Vicky Gallas said...

I have asked William his thoughts on Pisano before and he believes that the judge did the best he could with the way the so-called evidence was presented. He holds no ill will towards Pisano whatsoever and has often wondered about the judge's real thoughts as to his guilt on the Kemo murder count. Note that Pisano abruptly left to go into private civil practice at the time he was supposed to rule on William's 2255. While Judge Hochberg from the Hakeem Curry / Rakeem Baskerville case had a planned retirement, she denied Curry's 2255 case on her very last day as a judge. She was most definitely the government's judge, but Pisano not so at all, and William Baskerville's 2255 case is now in front of a new judge, fresh eyes, awaiting the ruling on an evidentiary hearing or convictions to be vacated. I have read all the docs and I have high hopes for him.
