A. The shootings of a judge and four others by an escaped prisoner on 11 March 2005 has raised calls for increased courthouse security, a move I applaud. But none of the press is directly talking about a contributing cause to the breach of security. When 33-year-old, 6'1" 210-pound former college football player Brian G. Nichols was unrestrained for purposes of changing out of his jailhouse jumpsuit into civilian clothes for trial, he was being guarded by 5'0" 51-year-old grandmother Deputy Cynthia Hall. (Cameron McWhirter & Steve Visser, "Suspect in Fulton courthouse slayings captured", Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Mar. 12). The crime spree began when Brian Nichols allegedly overpowered a courthouse deputy escorting him to his rape trial Friday and took the deputys gun, then killed the presiding judge and court reporter. He also is accused of killing a deputy who tried to stop him outside the courthouse and a federal agent during his flight from authorities. A memorial to remember the three people killed at the Fulton County Courthouse on Friday was held early Tuesday. Hundreds gathered at the Fulton County Justice Center for the service for Superior Court Judge Rowlad Barnes, his court reporter Julie Brandau and sheriff's deputy Sergeant Hoyt Teasley.

1. Superior Court Judge Rowland Barnes could laugh at himself. The 64-year-old would appear in skits at the Atlanta Bar Association's annual charity fund-raiser _ sometimes wearing only his underwear. "How many judges would do that? He could laugh at himself better than anybody," defense attorney Don Samuel said. Barnes, of College Park, Ga., was also an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, where he earned a degree in 1972. He maintained ties with Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pa., where he received an economics degree in 1962 and was a backup quarterback on the school's football team. He recently helped raise money for a memorial to a teammate who suffered a fatal injury during a game in 1961. Named to the Superior Court bench in 1998, Barnes previously worked as a part-time Fulton County magistrate and a city court judge in Hapeville and Fairburn. His wife, Claudia, is a judicial assistant for another judge and was working in the courthouse when her husband was killed. Barnes is survived by two daughters and four stepchildren.

2. Court reporter Julie Brandau was the type of person everyone wanted to work with. She often brought homemade cookies, brownies and other sweets to the courthouse for colleagues and jurors serving in trials that Barnes presided over. Brandau, 46, of Snellville, Ga., had been Barnes' court reporter for about 25 years. Her baking was featured in a 2002 Atlanta Journal-Constitution article. "Every day of every trial, she creates something special for our jurors," the judge said in the article. "They have dined on everything from peach bread to the best oatmeal cookies, and on every concoction in between. Sometimes she invents a recipe and sometimes she doesn't, but she has never ceased to please the crowd." In the article, Brandau was quoted as saying: "I have the privilege of working for Fulton County Superior Court Judge Rowland W. Barnes as his court reporter. He is always in my corner. "There is never a dull moment with my job. I have heard it all," she added. Brandau was born in Moncks Corner, S.C. She is survived by an 18-year-old daughter who is a freshman at Auburn University in Alabama.

3. Hoyt Teasley was known as a protector. People recalled that when he was young, he once took off on his bike to help find a missing neighborhood girl. The 44-year-old father was also protective of his two children. "I think of him with those two children," former Fulton County Sheriff Jackie Barrett said at the hospital where Teasley was pronounced dead. Teasley was trying to protect others when he was shot during his attempt to apprehend the gunman outside the courthouse.

4. David Wilhelm had been posted throughout the South during his nearly 18-year career with the federal government. He had been stationed in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia and had become assistant special agent-in-charge in Atlanta in November with the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, formerly the U.S. Customs Service. "His death is a loss for the entire law enforcement community in Atlanta and around the country," said Russ Knocke, director of public affairs for the bureau. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and co-workers." Wilhelm's brother is an agent with the Atlanta bureau, said a spokeswoman. Wilhelm, 40, is survived by his wife.

B. Ashley Smith, the woman held hostage in her apartment by the suspect in Atlantas courthouse slayings, said Monday she hopes Brian Nichols realizes he did the right thing by not killing her and instead surrendering without a fight. I hope that hes sitting in jail right now, thinking that he did the right thing and that he knows he did the right thing," Smith said on NBC's "Today" show. Smith, 26, added that Nichols "finally let me leave when I told him I needed to" go see her 5-year-old daughter, Paige, who was at a church function. Nichols apparently was touched by that mother-daughter connection. "I just told him that she didn't have a daddy anymore and if he killed me she wouldn't have a mommy either. I saw her face in my head almost the entire time," she told NBC. Smith's husband was killed in a stabbing four years ago. Smith told a news conference on Sunday that when Nichols let her go he said he wanted to stay at her apartment for a few more days.  During the ordeal, Smith said she gently talked to Nichols, turning from hostage to confidant as they discussed God, family, pancakes and the massive manhunt going on outside her apartment. I believe God brought him to my door, Smith said just hours after her 911 call ended a manhunt for Nichols, who is accused of killing four people and wounding a fifth.  Over the course of the night, Nichols untied Smith, and some of the fear lessened as they talked. Nichols told Smith he felt like he was already dead, but Smith urged him to consider the fact that he was still alive a miracle. Youre here in my apartment for some reason, she told him, saying he might be destined to be caught and to spread the word of God to fellow prisoners. She told him his escape from authorities had been a miracle. Smith later called 911 after she was freed, and police soon surrounded her suburban apartment complex. Nichols gave up peacefully, waving a white towel in surrender. I honestly think when I looked at him that he didnt want to do it anymore, Smith said. If he did not give up, she told him, Lots more people are probably going get hurt and youre probably going to die. Police said they were impressed by the way Smith handled herself. She acted very cool and levelheaded. We dont normally see that in our profession, said Gwinnett County Police Officer Darren Moloney. It was an absolutely best-case scenario that happened, a complete opposite of what you expected to happen. We were prepared for the worst and got the best. Smith said her ordeal began around 2 a.m. Saturday morning with Nichols sticking a gun in her side in the parking lot of her apartment when she returned from a store. He tied her up and told her to sit in the bathroom while he took a shower. He said, Im not going to hurt you if you just do what I say,”’ she said. He told her: I dont want to hurt you. I dont want to hurt anybody else. Choking back tears, she said she told Nichols that her husband died four years ago and if he hurt her, her little girl wouldnt have a mother or father. Smiths attorney, Josh Archer, said her husband died in her arms after being stabbed. The two talked about the Bible and she handed him photos of her family. When morning came, Nichols was overwhelmed when Smith made him pancakes with real butter, she said. He told her he just wanted some normalness to his life, she said.  Nichols at one point called her "an angel sent from God," Smith said. The two watched television news reports about the slayings and the manhunt. I cannot believe thats me on there, Smith quoted Nichols as saying.

C. The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office hopes to formally charge Nichols with the new crimes within 30 days, spokesman Erik Friedly said Sunday. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard still would like to resolve Nichols’ interrupted rape retrial. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that a courthouse surveillance camera recorded Nichols’ initial surprise attack on Deputy Cynthia Hall but that no one in the control center noticed the assault. “It’s not just horrible, it was preventable,” Senior Superior Court Judge Philip Etheridge told the newspaper. Lawyers who knew Barnes said they were shocked by the news. (Read more about the judge by clicking here.) “You probably will not find a judge anywhere in the country that dreamed about being a judge more than Rowland Barnes. He loved being a judge,” said Drew Findling, an Atlanta lawyer. "He is an old-school judge at a time where there aren't a lot of old-school judges," Findling said. B.J. Bernstein, another Atlanta lawyer, said Barnes was “extremely” well respected. “This is a man who always looked at both sides … made sure both sides had been heard and yet would rule justly. His demeanor on the bench was fair but firm,” she said. Attorney Mike Mears, a friend of Barnes, echoed those sentiments. "He was very fair and respectful to everyone who appeared before him. Now he's going to be missed tremendously by the legal community and by the community at large." Flags on the state capitol were to be lowered to half-mast until the victims' funerals, Gov. Perdue said.  Barnes, 64, is perhaps most famous for two cases: one involving an abusive mother and the second involving an NHL player.  Barnes honored the wishes of an Atlanta Thrashers player's father and did not sentence the teammate responsible for his son's death to jail. Voicing his reservations, Barnes nonetheless sentenced Dany Heatley to three years' probation last month.  The judge also created something of a firestorm last month when he gave a mother of seven who had pleaded guilty to killing her newborn the option of medical sterilization to avoid prison. It is believed to be the first such plea agreement in the state's history.

D. On 29 July 1999 Mark Barton 44 of Morrow, Georgia killed himself after being pulled over by police 30 miles outside of Atlanta.  Barton had gone on a shooting rampage at two Atlanta brokerage offices Thursday afternoon, killing nine people and injuring 12 others. Less than an hour later, the bodies of three relatives of the suspect were found in his apartment in Stockbridge, a suburb southeast of Atlanta, Detective Willy Rosser said. The coroner in Henry County, where Stockbridge is located, identified the victims as a 27-year-old woman, a 12-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. CNN has also learned that Barton's first wife and mother-in- law -- Debra Spivey Barton, 36, and Eloise Spivey, 59 -- were hacked to death in a trailer near Cedar Bluff, Alabama, in 1993. Cherokee County Sheriff Roy Wynn said no charges were ever filed in the case, but Barton was the lone suspect. Barton is a former chemist who went into day trading stock and was concerned about financial losses. Witnesses reported that Barton came into one of the trading offices where he once worked, had a brief conversation with the people inside noting that the stock market was down and then began shooting, Campbell said. The rampage was the worst mass shooting in Atlanta's history. It came just two weeks after seven members of an extended family died in a murder-suicide in the city.

E. The shooting is particularly disturbing because it occurred less than one day after the possibly inflammatory "Manuel Job" Noriega v. "Suck Dick" Cheney: "Lick Bush" Presiding was submitted to the Secretaries of State, it is very interesting, only 10 pages long and exposes a false arrest and the most homicidal official in the world.  The timing was furthermore disturbing because that updates the Police Labor Contract that expired resulting in numerous “contract killings” was submitted to the Police Chief at 3:30 pm.  The scenario that I hope to investigate in this brief is if this killing was contracted by the Secretary of State Cathy Cox,  who is serving her second term as Georgia’s Secretary of State, having first been elected in 1998.  In 2002 she earned re-election with over 61 percent of the vote, winning 146 out of 159 counties.  Cathy Cox is the first woman to serve as Georgia’s Secretary of State. Because of Cathy Cox’s efforts Georgia has become a national leader in election reform.  Her initiative made Georgia the first state in America to deploy a modern, uniform electronic voting system in every county.  The new touch screen system has won acclaim throughout the state and across the nation, and has made Georgia elections more accurate and more accessible to the disabled and visually impaired.  Secretary Cox has an extensive background in law, journalism and public service.  Before her election, she served three years as Assistant Secretary of State.  From 1993 to 1996 Ms. Cox represented Miller, Seminole, Early and Decatur counties in the Georgia House of Representatives.  As Secretary of State Cathy Cox has worked to enhance customer service and protect Georgia consumers.  She undertook the largest decentralization in Georgia government history, moving her largest operating division from Atlanta to Macon.  Under her direction a new State Archives facility designed to better protect Georgia’s historical treasures and documents opened in April 2003 in Clayton County.  Her Corporations Division has become a leader in governmental e-commerce, offering a broad array of services through the Internet and e-mail.  The Secretary of State’s technological leadership has won national recognition.  In 2003 the agency's website was named "Best Constitutional Officer Site" in the nation by the Center for Digital Government.   In 2001 the Council of State Governments named her agency’s website best in the nation.
Secretary Cox made campaign disclosure reports available on the Internet, allowing citizens to see for themselves who is supporting candidates for public office.   She expanded the agency’s successful license suspension program, which requires deadbeat parents to pay child support, to now include those who default on their student loans (a major fraud that fails to perform, falsifies accounts and is corrupted by federal government debtors Art. 10 e Dec. Social Progress and Development). Those initiatives have saved Georgia taxpayers millions of dollars since their inception.  Cathy Cox was born in Bainbridge in southwest Georgia where she attended public schools.  She learned her love of public service from her father, Walter Cox, who was Mayor of Bainbridge and served for 16 years in the Georgia General Assembly.  Ms. Cox attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and continued her studies at the University of Georgia, where she earned a journalism degree.  Her career began as a newspaper reporter with The Gainesville Times and The Post-Searchlight in Bainbridge.  Later, she entered Mercer University Law School, where she was editor of the Law Review.  For 10 years, Ms. Cox practiced law in Atlanta and Bainbridge. Secretary Cox has received numerous honors for her public service.  The Georgia Commission on Women named her the 2000 Woman of the Year.  For the past seven years Georgia Trend magazine has chosen her as one of the 100 Most Influential Georgians.  In 2002 Governing magazine named her one of its 11 Public Officials of the Year – the first Secretary of State in the nation to receive this prestigious honor. Ms. Cox, 46, is a member of the United Methodist Church.  She, her husband Mark Dehler, an attorney, and their chocolate labrador Jake reside in northeast Atlanta.

F. Ms. Cox is disturbing mostly in regards to her access to the public records, her experience in journalism, a possible lack of independence regarding the judiciary and the way she looks nearly exactly like Ashley Smith who harbored the fugitive shortly before he was arrested.  The worst case scenario involves Ms. Cox having worked out a deal with Ms. Smith four years ago so that she could stab her husband and then doing something similar with Mr. Nichols to get him to kill an archrival for being a rare good judge.  Ms. Smith was possibly responsible for harboring the fugitive but reneged.  Ms. Cox is obviously very concerned in this case but is not entirely trusted by the author although he respects her right to read.  After the initial shock subsided the plot, if one existed, seems to involve federal boobytrapping of the Secretaries of States and Ambassadors by the Secretary of Defense and White House to prevent association between Hospitals & Asylums and the powerful allies that can be found the Department of State as occurred in the US Embassy to the Netherlands with the murder of Theo van Gogh, same name as the patron of Vincent van Gogh, where the genocidal Cincinnati Police were suspicious due to a “discount flight” to Amsterdam publicized on the television news at a time when Delta was going bankrupt.  These crimes seem to be pre-planned, other similar crimes have occurred because the minds of unknown criminals seem to have been stimulated to action by the same legal brief that fails to inspire any action from the so called good people who idly sit by while people die.  I of course censure my email list when these major crimes occur but not everyone is able to write their name in blood on the evening news and I suspect that there are more insane criminals than lawyers at the bar.  The theory that Mr. Nichols was ordered to commit this crime in exchange for his freedom or his life must be tried.  The other theory that is bolstered by the confusion regarding the stolen car belonging to an agent of the press that was found in the parking garage where it was supposedly taken from is that the entire rape trial was false and the killing was in fact performed by a police officer or other wrongfully trusted agent or the insider killer released him to present a diversion.  We look forward to the determination of the judge and jury and hope that a secure enough prison can be discovered to spare Mr. Nichols his life if he was in fact the perpetrator of this most atrocious of crimes.

G. The recent spate of judicial assassinations was heralded locally by my friend District Judge Susan J. Dlotte who was possibly mistakenly pegged as a good judge because it is recorded in my resume that it was she who advised the use of the Hospitals & Asylums ND as she wrote to overturn her 20 year sentence for the innocent homebuilding victim of major fraud of the bank while breaking in to steal the bank statements from the author who was immediately robbed after sticking his hand in the court proceedings. Courthouse security has become a preeminent local issue and I don’t know any of the judges who were victimized. In February the news reported that Judge Dlotte felt so threatened by the information regarding judicial assassinations that she jailed the informant, I hope that after the Ides of March she will find enough peace to release her brainwashee to probation, a good essay by the prisoner on a moot legal issue, another good essay on this problem at hand, a long talk with Judge Dlotte and Social Security income if the female detainee is poor, would probably do the trick. 

1. This 1 March 2005 U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow went home to discover the bodies of husband, Michael Lefkow and mother Donna Humphrey.  The body of a medical malpractice litigant was found in an apparent suicide with a confession to the killings however there is still an investigation as to whether the killings were performed by a white supremacist group and the judge and her children have witness protection.  

2. In 1999 Los Angeles County Court Commissioner H. George Taylor was killed after being struck by three shotgun blasts as he entered his home's driveway. His wife Lynda was shot and killed when she rushed outside to investigate. No arrests were made, but detectives are convinced that the slayings were connected to Taylor's work in court.

3. In 1989 Federal judge Robert Vance was killed when he opened a bomb-laden package in his home outside Birmingham, Ala. His wife was severely injured but survived. Walter Leroy Moody Jr. was convicted and sentenced to die. Moody sent mail bombs to Vance and to a black civil rights lawyer, Robert Robinson, because he was angry that a 1972 conviction for possessing a pipe bomb had not been overturned.

4. In 1988 Federal judge Richard J. Daronco was killed at his Pelham, New York, home by Charles L. Koster, a retired New York City police officer apparently seeking revenge for the judge's dismissal of a $2.5 million lawsuit filed by his daughter. Koster then shot and killed himself.

5. In 1987 Mississippi judge Vincent Sherry and his wife Margaret, a former Biloxi city councilwoman and mayoral contender, were murdered in their home. Later convicted as part of a racketeering organization that arranged for their contract murders were a former mayor of Biloxi, Pete Halat, and three other people. Prosecutors alleged the killings were ordered over missing profits from a prison scam that had been kept in the law office Halat and Sherry once shared.

6. In 1987 Mobster Joel Cacace hired a trio of hitmen to kill federal prosecutor William Aronwald for disrespecting the Columbo crime family. By mistake they tailed Aronwald's father, George, a 78-year-old city administrative law judge who shared an office with his son, and shot him dead as he stopped to pick up his laundry.

7. In 1983 Illinois Judge Henry Gentile was shot to death in his courtroom by a disgruntled man whose divorce case was being heard by Gentile. Also slain was lawyer James Piszczor. Hutchie Moore was convicted of murder in the shootings.

8. In 1979 U.S. District Judge John Wood was slain by a sniper outside his home in San Antonio. The killer was hired because defendants in a Colombian drug-smuggling case before the judge believed he would impose a maximum sentence on them. Charles Harrelson, the father of actor Woody Harrelson, was convicted and sentenced to two life terms in the first assassination of a federal judge in the 20th century.

9. In 1974 Washington state Superior Court Judge James Lawless was killed when he opened a brown package. Ricky Anthony Young was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. Lawless had been scheduled to sentence Young in an arson case, and sometime earlier had sent him to jail in the burglary of a drug store.

Certificate of Service Tony Sanders 16 March 2005 to the National Association of State Secretaries and International Court of Justice after the 11 March 2005 service of Manuel Job Noriega v. Suck Dick Cheny Lick Bush Presiding  The Georgia Secretary has been removed from this list that will not be used again because of the national increase in homicides that occurred after its service by “Anthrax Sender” unless someone writes to convince me that the Secretaries of States are indeed safe for email service.  For Ms. Cox to clear her good name with Hospitals & Asylums she must write the author with her own explanation of the events that took Judge Barnes life for publication or she will be forever remembered as Suck Dick Cox like the real criminals want.  The current judicial leaning seems to relieve the homicides. ,,, , ,,,, , ,,,,,, ,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,, ,,, ,,,,,,,,,, , ,,,,,,,,,,, ,,, ,,,, ,,,,,,
