“The primary function of the Grand Jury is to uncover crimes and misconduct in public office for the purpose of prosecution (see NY Const, art I, § 6; CPL 190.65, 190.55).” People v Tyler, 46 N.Y.2d 251, 258-259, see also People v Rao 73 A.D.2d 88 (N.Y. App. Div. 1980)
If you are new to this website, just remember, this is one of the first websites ever to be shut down in the United States of American by corrupt New York State Public Servants, i.e. your servants.
This website had to be moved overseas, to Iceland, the home of wikileaks, so American citizens could exercise their 1st amendment rights to call out the corruption happening right here in Western New York….
Who are the public servants that shut it down?
Lori Rieman, “district attorney” of Cattaraugus County New York), who covered up the Metcalf murder in Erie county.
Jillian Koch. The present Cattaraugus County court clerk, and former Town of Little Valley Court Clerk.
- and much more….
New York State Constitution, Article I, Section 6, Paragraph 2;
The power of grand juries to inquire into the wilful misconduct in office of public officers, and to find indictments or to direct the filing of informations in connection with such inquiries, shall never be suspended or impaired by law.
What are your powers?
You, the natural born citizens of New York, if you are on a Grand Jury, especially if you are a “Grand Jury foreman, i.e. foreperson”, whatever you maybe called, all of you can ignore any and all ‘government’ employees, laws, etc… including those calling themselves district attorneys, etc… and do what justice requires of you, not the ‘law’, not the ‘rules’, not the ‘regulations’, but what is moral and right.
You will see public officials attempt to use CPL to make it appear that the citizens grand jury has limited powers or authority. The New York State Constitution is very clear.
They will use CPL § 190.85 and ask you to submit a report concerning misconduct, non-feasance or neglect in public office by a public servant as the basis for a recommendation of removal or disciplinary action.
WRONG! See New York State Constitution, Article I, Section 6, Paragraph 2; you have the power; “to find indictments” which clearly specifies the fact that Grand juries can indict corrupt public officials, not make reports.
New York State Grand Juries are Independent;
In People v Sexton ( 187 N.Y. 495, 513-514): “A grand jury, although for some purpose a part of the court in connection with which it is convened, is in some aspects a separate and independent tribunal, free from the restraint of the court, and at liberty to decide upon its own methods of procedure in so far as they are not controlled by statute or immemorial usage having the force of law. This principle of Grand Jury independence stated in Sexton has been reaffirmed repeatedly (see Matter of Keenan v Gigante, 47 N.Y.2d 160, 169, cert den 444 U.S. 887; People v Di Falco, 44 N.Y.2d 482, 486-487; Matter of Seidenberg v County Ct. of County of Rockland, 34 N.Y.2d 499, 509; People v Stern, 3 N.Y.2d 658, 662-663; People v Ryback, 3 N.Y.2d 467; Matter of Nigrone v Murtagh, 46 A.D.2d 343, 350, affd 36 N.Y.2d 421.
The History of New York State Grand Jury’s
In 1934, a grand jury was convened to investigate gambling in New York City. The grand jury sat for 11 months, but resulted in only a few prosecutions. Charges were made that politicians were regularly fixing gambling cases. A memo by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia’s office showed that between February 1 and September 30, 1934, 91% of the gambling cases brought by police never even came to trial, and of those that did come to trial, one third ended in fines usually under $50.
On March 4, 1935, William C Dodge convened a grand jury to investigate gambling, and in particular the actions of Dutch Schultz. The grand jury spent its time with other cases and information on witnesses was being leaked. Grand jurors complained that only junior investigators were assigned to them. Gambling kingpins were quoted in the newspapers that they would never be indicted.
The jurors complained in open court about the problems on May 7, 1935, which was widely reported by the city newspapers. On May 22, 1935, William C Dodge agreed to appoint a special prosecutor from a list prepared by the New York County Lawyers Association. He balked at appointing any of the Republicans on the list because he considered them political opponents of Democrats such as himself. Instead, he selected H. H. Corbin, a compromise candidate proposed by former Republican Governor Nathan L. Miller, despite objections by the grand jurors. When the juror objections were made public, Corbin refused the appointment. The “runaway” grand jury disbanded in June, still complaining that the cases were not adequately being investigated.
On June 24, 1935 Governor Herbert H. Lehman said a new investigation would occur. Of the four names that were put forth, only Thomas E. Dewey accepted the task; he brought a series of successful prosecutions. Dodge chose not to run for re-election in 1937. Dewey was elected as a Republican to succeed him in November. It remains unclear whether Dodge criminally profited from the events. It was revealed that gangster Dutch Schultz paid $15,000 for his election. His patron Hines was quoted in his own trial as saying Dodge was “stupid, respectable, and my man.”
A perfect example of what corrupt District Attorney’s will do When you are investigating public corruption, like should be going on in Cattaraugus County New York they will claim you only have the power to issue “grand jury reports” concerning malfeasance of public officials and recommending their discipline pursuant to NY Criminal Procedure Law §§ 190.60 & 190.85.
Cattaraugus County Corruption;
- Olean Police Department Covers Up Criminal Conduct of Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Noelle Ensell.
- The Koch’s and the Criminal Cabal are at it again. Admit to destruction of more evidence and denying access to public records
- The Ensell Family.. are they trying to take root in Erie County? Elizabeth Ensell got a nice well paid job as an Erie County assistant District Attorney after her boss after she fled Cattaraugus County, “district attorney” Lori Rieman covered up the Metcalf murder.
