This is a short post to address the corruption, lies, and misinformation of the US government that so many are acutely aware of but conveniently ignore on a regular basis. Just a few paragraphs with links to significant documents for your reading pleasure over the holidays. Each of the documents will be addressed in-depth in January of 2018 in separate posts on this blog.
The government (specifically Sanders) has responded to Paul Bergrin's 2255 petition. Steven Sanders left the Newark US Attorney's Office in September 2016, as far as I am aware and according to the bio on the Gibbons Law website, to work with Gibbons Law, the same firm that Larry Lustberg is with. Sanders composed the government response to the 2255 petition filed on November 30, 2017. This makes little sense, but thus far no one has explained it.
The response to the 2255 petition is nothing but more spin, lies, and misinformation. I can easily dispute numerous parts of this document right here, and actually already have. If you have read every post on this blog, you are already aware of that. Paul Bergrin is suffering in Florence, Colorado ADMAX (yes, the Supermax) under a SAMs designation. Paul is incommunicado. If you write him, he will never receive your letters. The government has a lot to hide. Without further ado, here is the 1858 page response:
Is the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) a Criminal Organization
Anyone who lived in Miami in the 80s knows something about the story of Salvador Magluta and Willie Falcon. Falcon was recently released from the BOP and is in ICE custody, in Louisiana I believe, as the US government is attempting to deport him to Cuba. Sal Magluta is in Florence ADMAX (yes, the Supermax) and has been through more than anyone could imagine.
Before you fall for the outrageous government spin concerning Sal Magluta, note that his 195 year sentence is for money laundering. You got that right. Money laundering. Not importing drugs or murder or any other crazy crap the government claims him to be guilty of. The jury convicted him on numerous counts of money laundering, many of which simply involved him paying his attorneys. Truth be told, Magluta was more of a Robinhood type – he spread the wealth around. Sure, he had his faults, but no one who actually knew him believes that he belongs in Florence ADMAX serving a 195 year sentence.
I came across Magluta's many cases against the BOP when researching what they really do to inmates in Florence ADMAX. Magluta's attorney recently jumped ship, mainly because he was not being paid and the staff at Florence ADMAX made communications impossible via telephone and in-person. There was nothing more that the attorney could do for him.
The document linked herein is written by Sal Magluta as a declaration in the current case against the BOP and filed in July of 2017. There is much personal medical information in the declaration, so I've been on the fence about posting it, but I must believe that Sal Magluta wants the people to know what the government is doing to him or he wouldn't have filed it:
If reading a non-fiction book about the Miami scene back in the late 70s and throughout the 80s appeals to you, make sure to read Roben Farzad's recently released book, Hotel Scarface: Where Cocaine Cowboys Partied and Plotted to Control Miami. I will save the discussion of Magluta's case(s) against the BOP for a new post.
Happy reading and happy holidays!
