MNN. Sept. 29, 2016. Judge Frederick Scullin [Bones] of the New York Federal Court tried to throw out so far 8 of the “Onondaga15” pro se plaintiffs/victims of the I-81 NYS INDIAN Detail attack on May 18, 1997. Five were a few minutes late because the guards kept them outside the courtroom. After argument they were reinstated.
Scullin does not allow evidence like a video showing women, children and elders standing around the ceremonial fire on the Jones property and being viciously attacked and arrested. Any evidence contrary to the interests of the NYS I-81 INDIAN Detail, especially their contradictory statements are being kept out. One was not allowed to cross-examine the cop in case of false arrest.
‘Henh! We told you to stop resisting police brutality!’
Scullin ordered the plaintiff to give him his questions to decide if they can be asked by someone else. The plaintiff insisted on asking them himself, which by law he’s allowed to. The fix is in!
NYS ‘royalty’: “You tell ’em, judge!!”
Scullin glanced for a second at the questions and then denied all questions, without explanation. An argument ensued. Scullin ordered him out of the courtroom. The plaintiff asked, “What does that mean?” Scullin demanded the plaintiff leave. The man asked, “What does that mean?” Scullin did not answer. The man asked, “Judge, can you clarify what you mean? Are you throwing me out of the case?”
Scullin yelled, “I want you out of my courtroom for the rest of the day!”
The plaintiff said, “I don’t believe you have ever experienced a case like this. Throw me out of the case so I can start my appeal!” Scullin wouldn’t.
Scullin ordered the jury out so they could not see his continued abuse. The plaintiff’s loud voice could be heard through the walls.
Freddie Scullin [Bones]: “You can appeal my disgusting rulings”.
Two plaintiffs left the courtroom with the boisterous man to protect him. During the chaos, one guard at the door pushed the plaintiff in the back. The plaintiff asked, “What are you doing?” One guard said, “At least I’m not a savage”, No, he’s a racist! Fifteen cops arrived as a show of force and escorted the three of the “Onondagas 15” out of the courthouse. Shuddering Scullin ran to his chamber where he could have a good cry.
It appears the court is trying to sabotage the case, hoping the jury will give a decision that supports the Troopers for their crimes.
One woman supporter walked out shaking her fist at the judge, “I’m a warrior!”
The INDIAN Detail that viciously beat the plaintiffs on May 18, 1997 sit and watch. The warriors were falsely accused of being at the gathering and putting the women and children on the front lines and running away!
Scullin continues to try to derail the pro se plaintiffs’ case. [Stand with the Onondaga15, 100 South Clinton in Syracuse]. thahoketoteh.
As the Onondaga15 are being railroaded by Judge Scullin [Bones], we are reminded of the Grateful Dead song “Casey Jones”: “Driving that train, high on cocaine. Casey Jones, you better watch your speed. Trouble ahead, trouble behind, and you know that notion just crossed my mind.”
