President Obama must protect Blacks

He hired Michael Malone, a hit man for the federal government, who testified falsely against former Judge Alcee Hastings. This testimony helped remove Hastings from the bench after his acquittal in the criminal trial. It was later found that Malone had lied. He also lied about hair and fibers in the Brawley grand jury investigation.

Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa examined Malone's testimony in state cases from Florida to Alaska and concluded that Malone would "provide testimony on hair and fiber that no one else would." This was his modus operandi and he nearly sent a person to death in Pennsylvania.

Cong. John Conyers threatened a federal investigation into Malone's nationwide perjury exploits. His damaging exploits are outlined in "Tainting Evidence" by John F. Kelly and Phillip K.Wearne. This is another reason for dismissing the grand jury report in Brawley. It is replete with known lies.

New York routinely frames Black defendants and any Black attorney who has the guts to challenge a criminal justice system "infested with racism." The tea leaves predict that a democratic form of government in the United States is now obsolete. This was Dr. Martin L. King's prediction if this country continued on a course of militarism and materialism.

An economic stimulus package for unemployed whites should take a backseat to a class of wrongfully convicted Black defendants. Under the Constitution, the president of the United States must guarantee justice. Capitalism, on the other hand, only allows for economic opportunity and not a right to a job. Guaranteed employment means slavery. Mr. Obama is putting the cart before the horse.
