An undeclared state of emergency in Michigan has forced the Michigan Attorney General to cover for financially struggling county governments by disallowing citizen complaints against unlawful authorities (local government and it’s police).
Reporting “misconduct of police” or even “crime by police” is not an option in Michigan because Bill Schuette (Michigan’s AG) makes the victim of police crime seek redress from the same people that violated them in the first place.
The inability to report police crime is intentional, unconstitutional and purely economic. Bill, I have had conversations with your staff and your lawyers have left messages in my voice-mail that has been saved on remote servers because you will claim that you are ignorant of our allegations of police crime when you are not. Shame on YOU for turning your back on this Michigan family!
My family’s home and it’s contents were taken by the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department without cause or justification. Nothing legally justified the unlawful seizure PERIOD yet we cannot report the crimes because the transgressors are unwilling to arrest themselves while the Michigan Attorney General tells us that that is our ONLY option which has left us stuck between a rock and a hard place for over two and a half years.
Even though testimony (while under oath) has been provided by our offenders admitting to our allegations, still nothing happens.
This inaction by the Isabella county government has left criminals in place to judge it’s citizens and police our streets. How is this being done fairly? If you live in Isabella County and have been arrested and charged with any crime with any of the these people involved or in office, you have been handled by criminals.
Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski (8+ Years in office)
Isabella County Prosecutor Larry Burdick (Resigned in 2012 after serving 20+ years according to cm-life.com)
Isabella County Chief Judge Paul H. Chamberlain (Served ? years)
Using just one of a hundred different examples, Mr. Green, a member of the Isabella County Board of Commissioners goes to trial on DWI charges and is sentenced to 6 months loss of driving an ATV (4-Wheeler) and is fined $500. This punishment is less than 1/3 of what any other citizen would have been sentenced to in Isabella County. You tell me… Is this fair?
Is it fair that after my family’s home and it’s contents were stolen by the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department (a division of Isabella County) that my family’s only recourse is to ask an Isabella County Judge to rule against his employer and his friends in a very expensive lawsuit that could take five to seven years when the basis of our claim is directly rooted in violations of federal crimes?
Our ONLY recourse has been to ask those who violated our rights and stole all our stuff while violating state and federal laws to arrest and charge themselves.
Our personal loss of over $55,000 dollars worth of personal property is nothing compared to the loss we feel every day knowing that criminals are running Isabella County.
It is not my definition of crime but the definitions clearly spelled out in the Federal Criminal Code – Title 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242. Found on the Department of Justice website at this link http://www.justice.gov/crt/about/crm/241fin.php
And on the FBI website at this link http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/civilrights/federal-statutes
and stated below.
Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241
Conspiracy Against Rights
This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).
It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.
Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to ten years, or both; and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or may be sentenced to death.
Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law
This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.
This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.
Acts under “color of any law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under “color of any law,” the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

After Isabella County stole my family’s home and it’s contents they arrested me for calling 911. This was not a lawful arrest because I was arrested during the commission of the federal crimes stated above by the same police that arrested me.
This was not an “unlawful arrest” or a “wrongful arrest”, this was a kidnapping.
I was taken away from my family by the same criminal that caused my family to lose our home and it’s contents when my family needed me the most.
Here is the patrol car video of my arrest. http://youtu.be/p8PEk5NrQWo
I was scared as hell. I thought I was going to be taken down some two track and executed. As PISSED as I was, I didn’t say a single word in the back of the patrol car.
The sheriff, under-sheriff and prosecuting attorney all knew the totality and the significance of this days events long before we did. It is their JOB to know the law, obviously – because they are tasked with upholding it. Since they were not interested in doing the jobs they were and still are being paid to do, I have been forced to learn their job so that I could do it myself and it has been nothing short of two full time jobs.
The federal crimes carried out against my family by members of the Isabella County Sheriff Department initially, were substantially compounded by the administrators of that county department when they involved themselves and helped with the cover up and they became complicate/accomplices, by aiding and abetting and allowing the bad guys to get away with federal crimes where the potential punishment is increased to that of death because a kidnapping took place during the commission of the same crime.
The Isabella County Sheriff can not be held liable for any criminal acts or gross negligence of his deputies but this same immunity does not protect an elected sheriff that elects to actively participate in the same crime by working to cover it up and further conceal the same crimes. The same is true for the elected prosecuting attorney. Allowing your friends to get away with federal crimes is aiding and abetting even if you are a county prosecutor.
Larry Burdick knows this and this is why, I have been told that, he resigned prior to the election in November 2012.
But who the hell am I to accuse the Isabella County Board of Commissioners, the elected Isabella County Prosecuting Attorney, the elected Isabella County Sheriff and the elected Isabella County Chief Judge of covering up federal crimes with a potential penalty of DEATH?
Everyone involved and named herein has had a specific reliance on the notion that they could know the outcome in advance to have made such bold and debilitating moves against my family and have taken the stance of “in for a penny, in for a pound” believing that solidarity among them would create a no-win situation for my family and that has been true for the first 2.5 years but I am far from done with these folks that have destroyed my home and businesses by being criminals in power.
I will not allow them to be their own judges in crimes they themselves are accused of. If I were willing to accept that verdict from day one, I would have already replaced what had been taken unlawfully by now but there is just something in me that will not allow me to go another step forward without having first killed the cancer that is being paid to govern Isabella County.
I will not live in a county where it’s officials are nothing more than organized crime lords taking advantage of the people they are being paid to protect from the same while utilizing it’s own resources for their own personal gain and/or benefit!
I have never had any interest in playing in this sandbox. I always believed that obeying the law and paying my taxes would prevent this sort of thing from happening. If asked, prior to September 27, 2010, if I believed that this could ever happen to a family in Michigan or the entire United States for that matter, I would have said: HELL NO ! ! ! NOT IN MY COUNTRY!
But then it did and fortunately / unfortunately it happened to my family. Fortunately because I will not stop working to correct the problem until it has been solved to my satisfaction to make sure no other unsuspecting family in my county is violated the way my family was and unfortunately because I cannot even begin to state the totality of the damages this has created for my family. Also unfortunately for the state actors whom have willingly participate in these capital crimes against my family because my resolve is solid and I will not stop hounding you until you are brought to justice for your crimes PERIOD.
We have laws in this country for a reason and just because you are currently in charge of the system in place to enforce those laws does not make you exempt from the same!
Isabella County’s stance for 2.5 years goes to show that those in charge have absolutely no remorse!
