The US criminal justice system and all of its many paid participants are nothing but trash, with a few exceptions of course. In the case of Paul Bergrin and case of William Baskerville, which is connected only by the murder of Kemo Deshawn McCray, the only judicial exception is the Honorable US District Judge William Martini. There are no government or prosecution or FBI exceptions. Defense attorneys are another subject and it's a mixed bag!
I know exactly what they all did to William Baskerville and so does William. Neither one of us was born yesterday. The entire evidentiary hearing was one big setup with the goal of easily disposing of his many claims in the 2255 petition. To know this, one must only look at the November 2018 court Opinion that gave William the evidentiary hearing. The Opinion whittled his long list of claims down to what amounted to a few minor points. The Opinion filed in PACER late on October 9, 2019, easily chipped away those few claims William was allowed to address in the evidentiary hearing.
At the conclusion of the just filed Opinion, Judge Sheridan threw William Baskerville a bone. The issue is that William is not a dog and has no interest in their decaying bone. And don't think it is not easily noticeable that William was, once again, cheated out of presenting witnesses in his defense. The November 2018 Opinion whittled the witnesses down to only two: Hakeem Curry and Rakeem Baskerville. It was relatively simple to knock off these two witnesses in the hearing, but the reasoning behind knocking down the witness list to these two men is suspect to say the least.
I did not speak openly about the court's November 2018 Opinion for reasons that should be obvious. William had won an evidentiary hearing, which is supposed to be a major accomplishment in our lousy, sorry excuse for a justice system. At that point we were unsure if it was a setup to get rid of all of William's claims or a real attempt to find truth. Now we know.
Just let this post sit. I'm too angry to discuss this whittling exercise care of the US government and the court right now and have been since the night of the 10th when I discovered the Opinion in PACER. This post is to let the perpetrators of this long game of injustice know that I know, and that William knows. Everything will be addressed soon.
