The Appeal to the 4th Department, of the Unified Court System on New York, in Rochester exposes the absolute criminal corruption of the identified elements of the local deep state that exist in the Judicial and Executive Divisions of the Cattaraugus County New York government. The Appeal has been “perfected”, i.e. it falls within the requirements of the layout requirements to be heard on the merits, all the requirements of the record on appeal have been met, whether or not it meets the number of pages, size of the font, space between the font, record requirements, etc…even though a self-represented ‘person’ does not have to follow the ‘guidelines’ based US Supreme Court Rulings, one of which is  Haines v.Kerner 404 U.S. 519 (1972),. However, you have the issues of corruption, is there corrupt elements in the 4th Department? Continue reading
The New York Grand Jury System is one of the most powerful Grand jury systems in the world, however it has broken down because it is controlled by the very people it is intended to investigate and hold accountable; Corrupt District Attorney’s like Lori Rieman; “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) . The term “a grand jury can indict a ham sandwich” was coined here in New York. So was “testlying”, the two most dangerous phrases ever to infest American Jurisprudence.
Most New Yorkers fail to understand their power when seated as a Grand Jury member. It was designed to be a “run-away” process where We the People could control and hold accountable corrupt government officials, like the many that inhabit Cattaraugus County New York found in the District Attorney’s Office. It is engrained in the New York State Constitution.
Furthermore, the Grand Jury exists to protect citizens, i.e. We the People, from needless and unfounded prosecutions as well as to investigate crimes (see, e.g., People v Lancaster, 69 N.Y.2d 20 at 25 ; People v Ford, 62 N.Y.2d 275, 282 ; People v Iannone, 45 N.Y.2d 589, 594 .
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. No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. (Amended by Constitutional Convention of 1938 and approved by vote of the people November 8, 1938; further amended by vote of the people November 8, 1949; November 3, 1959; November 6, 1973; November 6, 2001.)
- Never impaired by law; a reasonable and sensible person clearly understands these words and what they means; no law can dictate to a grand jury what they can and cannot do when investigating and handing down indictments against public officials. If any local, county or state government employee tells you otherwise, tell them to review article I, section 6 of the New York State Constitution. Further, if you are a member of a grand jury and any government employee tells you that you can’t do something, subpoena them, put them on the stand and demand they sign a waiver of immunity and make them testify as to what they just said. If they were telling you the truth they would have no problem doing that under oath, now would they? See the powers of the grand jury below, very important…
- Shall never be suspended; that means in time of war, strife or whatever, a grand jury can always be seated and/or in power.
- Absolute; (as defined in blacks law); complete, perfect, final, without any condition or incumbrance; as an absolute bond.
- Indictments: The Grand Jury itself can pass down indictment against corrupt public officials
- Information; A Grand Jury can pass down an indictment against a corrupt public official, or make a recommendation to have charges filed against a corrupt public official. In our opinion, in this age of corruption it is better that a Grand Jury indicts a corrupt public official then allow another public official to charge them.
To give you an example of the power of the New York State Grand Jury System one needs to look back to February, 1934, where a New York Grand Jury made an effort to inquire into the policy racket, similar to what we have today known as ticket quotas. After eleven months of continued activity, it found itself stalemated, and handed up a recommendation that another Grand Jury take up the matter, and devote its entire time to it. The March, 1935, Grand Jury was charged with the duty of investigating all forms of organized crime, and any connection between such acts and law enforcement officials. In order that it might have a free hand and go after corrupt government officials, it threw out the corrupt district attorney running it , like corrupt District Attorney Lori Rieman we have here in Cattaraugus County New York who covers up murders .
The 1935 Grand Jury, though headed by a capable foreman, made no progress . When the futility of the investigation became apparent, the Jury joined with the Grand Jurors’ Association in urging upon Governor Lehman the need of an Extraordinary Grand Jury, and a Special Prosecutor to continue the inquiry. The rackets investigation is now being conducted by a carefully selected jury, with the aid of Thomas E. Dewey, Esq., and an appropriation of a quarter million dollars . This led to the successful prosecution in New York City of criminal organizations, which in Cattaraugus County is mainly comprised of corrupt public employees, their friends and family members.

Cattaraugus County DA Lori Rieman makes the Buffalo News again. Further proof she is unfit to hold office. This article highlights how she claims how a family member, the uncle of murder victim Richard Metcalf Jr. who was murdered by Matthew Cross, who was hired by the Ellicottville Police Department after he murdered Mr. Metcalf, threatened her for a e-mail he sent her concerning her conduct in the murder investigation. This is standard practice by the DA’s office , the ADA’s like Elizabeth Ensell Lafuer use it all of them time in a attempt to intimidate the defense. Elizabeth Ensell Lafuer is the same ADA that ran over a woman in a clearly marked crosswalk in Olean New York and the Olean Police Department covered it up;
“Richard A. Metcalf Jr. died five years ago Thursday after Holding Center deputies knotted a spit mask around his neck and pulled a pillow case over his head. Though a state agency urged prosecutors to consider charging key jail deputies in the inmate’s death, two potential counts are now off the table: manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. A five-year statute of limitations applies to those charges, which some court observers said were a prosecutor’s most likely options if a criminal case were to begin.
The prosecutor in the matter, Lori Pettit Rieman of Cattaraugus County, has given no sign she will charge anyone, even though Metcalf’s death has twice been determined a homicide — a death at the hands of others.
Rieman, who took on the case because the Erie County District Attorney’s Office had a conflict of interest, has said only that she will announce her decision when ready. She did not respond to a telephone message or an email seeking comment for this article. To read the full Buffalo News article click here.
Further proof she is not fit to hold the office of District Attorney.
In New York State, considered one of the most corrupt states in the county, if any citizen who is working for change exposes any aspect of a completely corrupt political system they maybe forced to undergo what is called a 730.30 examination, which can lead to the citizen being chemically lobotomized by a completely corrupt state government financed mental health system. In this report we will show you how one individual was forced to undergo two examinations by individuals who a county community service director, the individual in control of county mental heath system failed and/or refused to provide proof they were even qualified to conduct the exams… Continue reading
This school teacher and judicial activist is one strong patriotic lady. She has been fighting to fix the corrupt New York State justice system for over 25 years. She has a very important lawsuit working its way through the system right now to help clean up the mess. Ms. Sassower has testified before the New York Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline. This is the same committee Mr. Kochan testified before back in 2015 on the corruption in the Cattaraugus County District Attorney’s office and how it was covered up. One courageous Senator in the 2009 had a hearing to look into the corruption in the in the disciplinary committees. They refused to doing anything because they corruption was so bad. The evidence showed that “New York’s court-controlled system of attorney discipline cannot survive an evidentiary presentation” Continue reading
By default Cattaraugus County Judge Ronald Ploetz is the head dragon that controls the public corruption that permeates Cattaraugus County, New York. Being a judge he can easily put an end to it by simply obeying the law which in fact he ignores and does the exact opposite. He exemplifies the very type of person that the American public has grown to disdain and just voted out of office in November of 2016. This article will detail his acts of treason and perjury as he attempts to cover up the crimes the corrupt District Attorney’s Office and other corrupt elements of Law Enforcement instead of obeying the law, his oath of office and holding our public officials accountable for their violations of oaths of office and other violations of our rights. This article is for all individuals, however it focuses on the state, national and international audience. Continue reading
Not to be outdone by his boss, criminally corrupt “ADA” William Preston Marshall, who is attempting to hide who he really is by using derivatives of his full name recently had kidnapped a Pro-Se litigant who was exposing Marshall’s criminal nature. The “former” pro-se litigant supposedly did not follow the guidelines the judged laid out in his last action. This could be further from the truth, the ‘former’ Pro-Se litigant and his lawyer did exactly what the law provided and William Preston Marshall, AKA Baby Faced Finster, lied and misled not only the judge, but law enforcement that was there that evening and tricked them into kidnapping the Pro-Se litigant and sent him up to the Jack Nicholson Suite up at ECMC against his lawyers objections, claiming that he would be held there for anywhere from 30 to 90 days, however that was… Continue reading
Seems like CatCountyCorruption isn’t the only one who thinks that employees within the Cattaraugus County District Attorney’s Office are a bunch of criminals. When you have a lawyer who was a former US Attorney General for eight years and stationed in Washington DC telling it like it is concerning the criminally incompetent Attorneys that work for the District Attorney’s Office, well…. Cattaraugus we have a problem….
