Re: Criminal Conspiracy to Violate Federal Civil Rights and Anti-Racketeering Laws
Dear Mr. Miller, Mr. O’Neill, and Mr. Acosta:
I wrote you thirty days ago and under oath informed each of you of an ongoing criminal conspiracy by certain state officials to violate not just my civil rights but the rights of others. As you recall, I signed the letter to each of you under oath.
Since then, The Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court have proven the validity of my letter and the request I made of each of you.
The Supreme Court has now retaliated against my lawyer by initiating lunacy proceedings against him with an order it entered April 2. Prior to that, The Florida Bar stole his medical records in order to try to intimidate him from representing me. The Supreme Court, the day after it entered the April 2 order against my attorney who assisted me at my Bar trial, entered an order prohibiting me from representing myself, which order violates my Sixth Amendment right to represent myself, as enunciated by the U.S. Supreme Court in Faretta.
The Court is telling me that I, a lawyer of 31 years in continuous good standing with The Bar, rated A/V by Martindale, and someone who secured a number of historic firsts, can represent clients but not myself. Maybe the Justices are the ones in need of a psychiatric intervention.
On April 7, just this week, my Comcast e-mail account was “hacked,” and it appears to me and to others that the culprit was The Florida Bar. The Bar had previously intercepted, it appears, an electronic communication between me and my lawyer. If so, both instances constitute a serious federal crime.
Gentlemen, when did the State of Florida become the gulag Archipelago? The President of The Florida Bar, Frank Angones, who claims he was part of the Pedro Pan airlift out of Castro’s Cuba, has knowingly approved The Bar’s use of phony lunacy proceedings to intimidate critics. The above-noted April 2 order secured by The Bar is just the latest event that shows The Bar and the Court have adopted the shrink-our-critics methods of Fidel Castro. There are multiple victims of this criminal use of lunacy proceedings against lawyers who are willing to talk to the FBI. I have their names. They want to talk to the FBI.
The Bar did this to me as well, threatening me with a mandatory mental health examination to try to coerce my compliance with The Bar. One of The Bar’s own experts is a forensic psychologist who has told The Bar this was outrageous and meritless.
Bar Governor Ben Kuehne, who is under indictment by the US Justice Department, is involved in this criminal conspiracy. He transferred money to my Bar referee on the same day that a Bar prosecutor did the same thing. When I sought federal relief in U.S. District Court here in the Southern District for The Bar’s excesses, Miami lawyer Steve Chaykin increased twelve-fold the punishment The Bar sought. Such retribution is itself a federal crime, and Chaykin should be charged. I’m sure Bill Sadowki would have been proud of Comrade Chaykin.
Despite your forwarding this matter, Mr. Acosta, to the FBI, the FBI has done nothing and refuses to talk to me.
With all respect, either the FBI takes this seriously—the computer hacking, the criminal use of lunacy proceedings, the whole nine yards of Castro’s dump truck of tricks—or I and others will do what we need to do.
Mr. Acosta, the last time this flared up, the FBI did open a criminal investigation, headed by FBI Agent Swinerton, and you let it be shut down apparently by political friends of President Bush inconvenienced by the investigation. I know you have been reading my e-mails updating you on this criminal activity. I have your e-mail receipts proving that you have read them.
Regards, Jack Thompson
