This blog is about how absolute power corrupts  absolutely in Martin County, FL. This rings true in this account of how justice became cross-threded. Checks and balances of established procedures have been manipulated by those sworn to uphold the very core of liberty and justice. As each law enforcement, judicial and government agency becomes aware of the Martin County injustice and criminal acts, they too participate in the continued concealment. Deniability is a security where exposure will amount to criminal indictment, civil liability, and termination.

This forum, which has assisted in the changing  of governments present now, the opportunity for each reader to participate by becoming the light from which this corrupt darkness cannot flee.

    It is not only Martin County that is corrupted, whole state is. Florida become home or safe haven for many criminals and it is spreading to neighboring states to. Thanks for exposing those criminals in Martin county. My web is http://www.whatpricejustice.com I have links to your web and part of your stories on mine. This way will reach more people to read about corruption and injustice that is going on across the US.

    I have researched Martin County Circuit Court and agree that corruption between the judges and sheriff’s office IS ABSOLUTE! even the public records applications excised to ensure that their combined corruption is not exposed. Truly something should be done, free william Westervelt!

    It is corrupt for sure. Friend was put on suboxin for drug court and suboxin made her test positive and now has been in and out of jail and halfway houses for a year or more. And this is her first offense. She did not need any rehab as she has no drug problems to begin with nor addictions.

    Martin county is a cess pool for criminal acts. The Martin county sheriffs office is good for nothing except picking boogers out of noses.

      I am sadden to say that the leadership of William Snyder is just as corrupt as William Crowder. In all fairness. I think there are some good D/S but like any civil servant many go in with good intentions and then seem to go to the dark side of power and corruption. Thanks for your support. More information on the way as unbelievable things are happening daily.

    How do I contact you? I have my own corruption story which I am trying to resolve and would like my voice heard.

    Wow, I was astounded when I found this website or Blog. I have lived in MC all my life and have come to know the system here. There is no question that the MCSO is a useless law enforcement agency that is corrupt. The corruption started many years ago when Sheriff Holt, (from the Holt law enforcement facility fame) told a local media outlet, when investigating a dead body, ” I have told those niggers over and over not to try to swim across the canals pulling chains”. I heard this story from Sheriff Holt’s brother with whom I had several private conversations. They were, and are still today a good ole boy network who are intolerant of people who are not like them, and this persists today in the SO and in the court system. But my issues is really with the court system. There is no question that the current group of judges are old lawyer buddies that used to practice law together, and as legal colleagues look out for their own through protecting each other from illegal acts, to being sure their buddies are well paid through the awards of whopping legal fee judgements from average people who are being taken advantage of by their own lawyer. The lawyer you hire and pay is looking out for himself and his lawyer friends, more than you. This is a form of cronyism that cannot be tolerated. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done because lawyers give themselves immunity. The only thing that can be done is bringing illegal and unethical acts by judges to light through the internet and blogs like this. I would encourage everyone to read the judicial cannons of ethics, as well as those for lawyers. They can be found at the Bar website. I can attest that judge F Shields McManus has violated these cannons. I call him Jabba the judge because he is a fat piece of shit that makes rulings based on his own personal bias. And makes poor people pay large sums of money to his lawyer friends. Don’t confuse McCann and McManus.
    There is a good old boy network of judges in Martin County that extends to those who are clearly demented. Judge Shahood, is a retired judge who still apparently fills in on certain cases. This judge who is likely ethical, needs to be removed from the bench due to health reasons. He is not capable of making thoughtful decisions. We require pilots to retire at 65, don’t you think a judge should be made to do the same? Aged judges with health issues clearly are not capable of making reliably proper rulings. There is a system for reporting these judges, but how do you prove accusations with current HIPPA laws?
    Judge Makemson seems to be a nice enough guy, but unfortunately he is just stupid. Reports about him are that he just does not have the capacity to understand complex situations which is critical to making an informed ruling.
    I was amazed at a quote for Dr. Sherwood Bower who said in the court room to my favor, “we are not here to determine the truth, we are here to determine if the system has been followed”. Clearly judges do not care about the truth even though you are sworn under penalty of jail to tell the truth. Judges are interested in clearing their desk of cases and getting their buddies paid massive amounts of money. This brings up the following concept: justice is not about fair or equal treatment, justice is a system that is to be followed. And it is when this system is departed from problems develop.
    Judge Kathleen Roberts is the typical alpha female prosecutor that was appointed judge. Although I cannot speak to her ethical conduct, She is an aggressive unforgiving woman who has clearly railroaded people for her own political advancement. It worked.
    Judge Darren Steele and Bronis are more local lawyers who were promoted to judge. Again they are interested in going through the process of clearing cases, despite fairness, and getting their former partners and layer friends paid.
    I recently hired a lawyer and payed him a large sum of money up front that I had to borrow. Shortly thereafter I was informed that he was in a law firm and is drinking buddies with the very judge that was assigned to my case. Now how is the proper? How can the lawyer I pay, lookout for my best interest when he and the judge have beers together?
    There is one judge I think is likely worth while. Judge Sweet has the ethics and temperament to do a good job. Looking over the list of the rest of the MC judges I have little else to say. Although I have no experience with judge Peg however, I do know he was after a power grab when he ran for election.
    With all of this in mind, I would advise that all judges up for reelection be voted out. The system needs to be reformed, and this is a good place to start. The most important thing is this: judges must me able to be held liable for the decisions they make especially when making decisions about the welfare of children. Jabba the judge AKA McManus is by far the worst judge in this county.

      Thank you for your informative detailed email. Ironically Williams family members including myself do not live in Martin County nor Florida however, I feel like I live in Florida as I know the M.C. judicial system too well after 8 years. I don’t wish this system on any one. My bigger concern is that the tentacles of MC have reached where William is serving time and with the information that clearly depicts William was railroaded into pleading guilty for something he did not do via manufactured information by SA Vickie Nichols and D/S Kukuvka and then a few years later Kukuvka visibly verbally assaulting and threatening him, has harm come to De Soto all the way from Martin County? That is what I am trying to find out. As Williams life is in grave danger that has come upon him fast and furiously.

      Amen withheld! Check out the Arch Angels of Martin County.

    • Gary says:

      Wow. Great observation and one I’ve recently come to see as well. This corruption goes far into the depths of the Judicial system in Martin County. The prosecutors are well involved too. They make agreements and then pass them between each other and change the agreements that were made. Hardly ethical. Keep up the good work!

  7. jully roger says:

    I had a good experience with makemson… who really tried to understand the case and make a fair call. In my opinon he did a good job. I am concerned about mcmanus as i have read too many orders that just don’t make sense based on the evidence presented.

    faith for willful deformation of a law and certainly cannot pled ignorance of the law, for that
    would make the law look unintelligent for a knowledgeable judge to claim ignorance of a
    law, when a Citizen on the street cannot claim ignorance of the law. Therefore, there is no
    judicial immunity.”

    Judges are under the illusion that they have absolute immunity but all the cases that are
    cited making such a claim are without authority [people] and will fail in the federal and
    state courts in a court of record. Only the people are sovereign, all servants are under
    statutes and therefore liable to USC 18 and 42. “Where there is no jurisdiction, there can be
    no discretion”, they are not above the law when they commit a crime they will go to jail and
    are subject to civil suits. “No man in this country is so high that he is above the law. No
    officer of the law may set that law at defiance with impunity. All the officers of the
    government, from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the law and are bound to obey
    it…. It is the only supreme power in our system of government, and every man who, by
    accepting office participates in its functions, is only the more strongly bound to submit to
    that supremacy, and to observe the limitations which it imposes on the exercise of the
    authority which it gives.” — U.S. v. Lee, 106 U.S. 196, 220 1 S. Ct. 240, 261, 27 L. Ed 171

    “There is a general rule that a ministerial officer who acts wrongfully, although in good
    faith, is nevertheless liable in a civil action and cannot claim the immunity of the
    sovereign”. Cooper v. O’Conner, 99 F.2d 133

    “Any judge who does not comply with his oath to the Constitution of the United States wars
    against that Constitution and engages in acts in violation of the supreme law of the land.
    The judge is engaged in acts of treason.” — Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U.S. 1, 78 S. Ct. 1401

    “A judge must be acting within his jurisdiction as to subject matter and person, to be
    entitled to immunity from civil action for his acts.” — Davis v. Burris, 51 Ariz. 220, 75
    P.2d 689 (1938)

    “The courts are not bound by an officer’s interpretation of the law under which he presumes
    to act.” — Hoffsomer v. Hayes, 92 Okla 32, 227 F. 417

    “Where there is no jurisdiction, there can be no discretion, for discretion is incident to
    jurisdiction.” — Piper v. Pearson, 2 Gray 120, cited in Bradley v. Fisher, 13 Wall. 335,

    If you were under investigation for Ethics and Moral Torptitude violations, would you be able to negotiate you’re resignation? Martin County Sherrif’s Office Captain Brian Bergen is.

  11. Donald Schiavone says:

    Admin please contact me at the email address on record because the Statewide Common Law Grand Jury is currently addressing corruption in Martin County Florida and perhaps once you vet our case you may wish to seek remedy under the law of the land court of record. There has been success releasing prisoners elsewhere. Or at least be willing to blog the case or otherwise shine the light on the dark. Case number 43-2018-CA-000371Martin look at the filing into the case from the CLGJ Note Claim of Distrain underway against Martin County plus all other actors.

    • Admin says:

    Admin, I, too, am in the midst of the dirty MCSO’s deeds. I just wanted to know how to go about a false arrest complaint. Never had to do anything like this in my life so I’m very lost at the moment until my consultation. I have FB live footage I would like you to view that I was able to capture during my stop.

  17. I have proof of foul play in the court system from prosecutors and even Court Appointed Attorney’s refusing to defend their clients, helping the state prosecutor make cases that sent innocent people to prison.

  18. Donald Schiavone, and Admin

    Is there anyway I can contact you off site. I’ve had some really bad situations in Martin County that are just foul and unfortunately going through one now. I can’t hire an attorney and they prey on you in this county, violate your rights blatantly, and worse when can not afford a Good Private Attorney.
