    We're Exercing Victim and Witnesses Right's and Immunity just until I'm licensed to practice law!
    The November 4,2011 false arrest /Kidnapping made by CGTC which are partner and stakeholder and Intern’s with Macon Georgia Local Government,Emergency Response Provider,Critical Infastructure ,Appropriate Congressional Committee , and Mayor all are willing participate to them Violation of Oath of office, Kidnapping, Perjury,violation of Civil Right’s, Violation of Constitutional Right’s Cyberbullying which in their case Premeditated Murder-Conspiracy to Murder-Attempted Murder, Conspirator’s to the 1965 First Degree Murder of United States veteran Alex Harris Jr. whom Macon Police made the false and fabricated to report to his murder –and the judges and prosecuting attorney made a bias and prejudice and more-which the mayor,governor, and President(Except Me and Barack Obama and our Adminstration and ,Bill Clinton, and Abraham Lincoln), Conspirator’s to the First Degree Murder of Uncle and Cousin Smith both false reports made by Macon Police,Conspiracies-Attempts and Solicitation, Slander, Stalking –Harrassment and Communication,violation of Privacy Right’s, Violation of Human Right’s,Violation of O.C.G.A.17-3-2, Violation of U.S.C 42, and more…The main thing like in 1999 Walnut Street how I was on the phone with the 911 operator until the Macon Georgia First responder’s (Police,Fire figther’s, and ambulance) arriced to 1372 Walnut Street now both the news paper article and the Macon Police Report both contradict themselves .The other main thing to that case is Georgia Procedures for Victim’s under age 16 year’s now in 1996 I called the Police,Sheriff,U.S.Secret Services, local NAACP , went in person to the mayor and congress office,and more so without no investigation ,no report, and more the Statute of a limitation for a 13 year old being grabbed by his neck and lifted up off the ground by it along with him watching his mentally ill.birthmother the daughter of the United States Veteran Alex Harris Jr. murdered in 1965 called “Nigger’s “ and assaulted by the same police department party to the crime-conspirator’s –fugitives from justice –and more to her father’s mother,not to forget they failed from 1996 til 2009 to question the late widow Mrs.Mattie Lee Gibson Harris of Alex Harris Jr. and one of the witnesses from 1996 til 2009.Travon Martin was on the phone with his girlfriend and George Zimmerman was on the phone with 911 operator.It’s no way possible Trayvon Martin put his hand’s on Zimmerman until he was shot and screaming for up!It’s something I always’s have to keep mind myself refuge of lies don’t ever ever win against the refuge of the LORD –truth-and everything heaven sent.The 11-4-11 til 2-5-12 Kidnapping for ransom stay at Bibb County L.E.C. and Detention Center the Sheriff Department didn’t mention their family and friend’s, Intern’s, partner’s and Stakeholder’s, and Snitches how they talking about letter’s sent to LT.Boltwright!(smiling and laughing!!!)I’m just saying !!!I can’t forget how they are Anti-Christ Fugitives . Our Constitution accepts that force is sometimes necessary to maintain law and order ,but regulates unconstitutional applications in three separate provision-the fourth ,Eighth ,and Fourteenth Amendments .each covers a different phase of the criminal process and impose a different standard for when force is excessive .The Fourth Amendment prohibits excessive force in making investigatory stops,arrests,and other seizures.The Eighth Amendment prohibits use of unconstitutional force on prisoners serving sentence,and the Fourteenth Amendment regulates the period in between arrest and conviction.Thus,our Constitution protects persons in the custody of the law from unconstitutional applications of force continuously from their initial seizure until they completed their sentence. Before Terry v.Ohio, officers in this situation faced an impossible choice-let the person run by or make an unconstitutional arrest. The stakes grew higher after Mapp v.Ohio, in which the Supreme Court held that evidence procured in violation of the Fourth Amendment is inadmissible. If the police detained this man for investigation and found a gun and a roll of money in his possession, the gun and money were the producer of an unconstitutional arrest, made without probable cause, and could not be used as evidence. Right to kill if arrestee fears felony by officer.-If ,during an unlawful arrest,the officer commits, or reasonably appears about to commit a felony upon the arrestee, such as an assault with intent to kill, using a weapon likely to produce death, or if the officer’s violent behavior is enough to frighten a reasonable man into expecting a felony and causes the detainee to act from fear rather than for revenge, the detainee may protect oneself without being guilty of a crime, eve if the person slays the officer.Mullis v.State,196 Ga.529,27 S.E.2d 91 (1943) The Macon Georgia Entire Bibb County Government Directory (Except Me and Barack Obama and our Adminstration) , Macon Georgia Law Enforcement-Prosecuting Attorney-Governmental Agency-Governmental Agency-Judges illegally took everything from the their illegal Wiretap Order Electronic Communication/Wiretap Act Electronic Communications/Stored Wire and Electronic Communication and Transactional Records Act and gave it too their family and friend’s –Intern’s-Partner’s and Stakeholder’s-and Snicthes all participated in Cyberbullying –Premeditated Murder and more.How did the general public get my identity cause off of my family/extended family and Olgethrope Community can voch for me I stay in the house.My Ex Girl-friend’s will say I in the house as well if I wasn’t at work or home looking after my mentally ill.birthmother or my late grandma house.They was on Rosci 106 and Park Community website on BET and Hip Hop vs.America part 1 on BET and more.The BET C.E.O.Ms.Debra Lee, Rosci and 106 and Parks Nation BET , First lady Michelle Obama, Uncle and Cousin Smith, and my family /extended family and OLgethrope Community the went straight hell talking about Rosci taking my future wife .I’m just addicted to LORD fearing women it’s comes with my moral’s and values Macon Georgia/Middle Georgia ain’t got none only wannabe’s.I have reflect over from 1996-2012 and how they saw they ain’t Anti-Christ Fugitives.Me and Mines have Victim’s and Witnesses Right’s and Immunity we gonna be fine Keeping God first and moving forward and fearing the LORD!Now Antwon Jolly and Antwain Fair in Macon Georgia , Jamie Hoods in At

The jury found Ravi not guilty on several questions within the verdict sheet, but because he was found guilty on at least one question of whether his actions constituted bias discrimination, he could now face the maximum penalty: Up to 10 years in jail and deportation to his native India. Ravi, 20, also was found guilty of witness tampering, hindering apprehension and tampering of physical evidence. His roommate, Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old freshman, killed himself in September 2010 by jumping off the George Washington Bridge, which spans the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey, after learning that Ravi had secretly spied on his sexual encounter with another man. Clementi's death stirred discussion about bullying, with Obama releasing a videotaped message less than a month later condemning it. A few months later, New Jersey legislators enacted stricter laws to better protect against bullying in schools. The most serious charges in the Rutgers case centered on whether Ravi's actions had constituted bias intimidation, meaning that he was motivated to inspire fear in the Ridgewood, New Jersey, native because of his sexual orientation. Those charges carry jail time of up to 10 years and possible deportation back to his native India. Prosecutors have said that Ravi tried to embarrass Clementi because he was gay. "These acts were purposeful, they were intentional, and they were planned," prosecutor Julia L. McClure told the jury on the first day of the trial. Ravi "was bothered by Tyler Clementi's sexual orientation," she later said more bluntly. Ravi's attorneys have argued that their client acted thoughtlessly, portraying him as an immature college student who made a mistake, and that his actions were not based on homophobia. "He hasn't lived long enough to have any experience with homosexuality or gays," said attorney Steven Altman in closing arguments earlier this week. "He doesn't know anything about it. He just graduated high school." Ravi and fellow student Molly Wei -- who admitted joining Ravi to watch the surreptitious webcam encounter, which others were also alerted to via social media -- were charged in the wake of Clementi's suicide. They were not, however, charged directly with his death. Facing two counts of invasion of privacy, Wei reached a plea deal in May 2011 that required her to testify against her friend and former high school classmate, as well as to complete a three-year program on cyberbullying and do 300 hours of community service. Ravi turned down a plea deal offered by Middlesex County prosecutors that would have allowed him to avoid jail time in exchange for undergoing counseling, doing 600 hours of community service and disposing of any information that could identify the man who appeared in the web video with Clementi. Prosecutors also offered to help Ravi avoid deportation, though they said they could not guarantee it. Ravi, who had been studying on a visa at the New Jersey university, did not testify on his own behalf. During the prosecution's phase of the trial, the man whom Clementi was intimate with, identified only as "M.B.," told jurors that he had noticed a web camera aimed directly at Clementi's bed. The 32-year-old man testified that he first met Clementi on an Internet social networking site for gay men and that they eventually met three times in the student's dorm room. The two conversed online, exchanged text messages and later had sex, he said. Wei testified that she watched a sexual liaison involving M.B. and Clementi after Ravi had secretly set up the webcam in his and Clementi's dormitory room. Ravi's lawyer, Altman, has argued that his client had initially switched on the webcam to monitor his personal items because he did not trust his roommate's visitor. In Twitter messages from that day, Ravi wrote that he'd gone into a friend's room, "turned on my webcam" and saw his roommate "making out with a dude." On September 22, 2010, Clementi took a train to New York and posted a mobile status update on his Facebook page that read, "Jumping off the gw bridge sorry," before killing himself. Ravi had apparently tried to make amends with his estranged roommate that same night, according to text messages revealed in court. "I've known you were gay and I have no problem with it," Ravi wrote said in messages sent after he apparently learned his roommate had requested a d
