"Written laws are like spider's webs, and would catch.....the weak and poor,
But easily be broken by the mighty and the rich."
ANACHARSIS (6th century B.C.)
....To understand pain, we must experience it, as with anything, it is a strong tenet of nature. But as a society we strive to protect the innocent from the perversities of the world. So what happens when the protectors are the perverse?
Then as a society we must prove wholeheartedly that no one is exempt from the rule of society. Justice is for everyone, rich and poor, our nation was predicated on equality and as such anyone who stains this institution is truly a threat to everything America stands for...
The military justice system once a pinnacle of justice, has now degenerated into a shadowy system of fear through righteously wrong criminalities. Don't Believe it....or perhaps your confused. Well Don't be, we are living in a society that allows a conviction system to exist that can send anyone to prison for life (without parole) with absolutely no evidence and then abdicate physical and mental abuse in an effort to extract a false confession.
And guess what? This all happened right here in the United States of America. How do I know...easy because its a story of my life. Now here is a direct quote from my legal proceedings. That how near over 6 years from my wrongful conviction and are still going on.
"In spite of numerous searches and seizures, coordinated among the fayetteville police dept. (fayetteville, NC/Ft.Bragg). The Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID), and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), NO direct evidence or witness were ever developed or located that would show SSG Diamond (me) had murdered and or conspired to murder Capt. Theer."
And any circumstantial evidence that the government developed was in direct opposition to not only military law but also the US Constitution. So how does a pinnacle of honor and justice allow this to happen?.... Because we as a society allowed the proverbial fox to guard the hen house.
Why should you care? Good question, because right how we as a nation are engaged in a war of terror, a war as you'd hae on D'day ours us. Theirs, yet the very things we strive to achieve are being undermined by the same people who offer open arms to the oppressed of the world.
Did you know had I been an officer or rich enough to afford good attorney's, the chances that I'd be prosectuted by the military would have been remote in the best of circumstances...by the way thats a direct quote from one of my former prosecutors.
Instead, I was a sacrificial lamb for the military to parade around in the nameof Justice and so an officer could gain a murder conviction for his career. Not for justice or society, but an officers career. And apparently LTC Bagwells career is booming. But what about evidence being withheld, or a victims family lied too, or the hoax of justice perpetrated on society?
What about the rule of law? Does it have no meaning? Since my wrong incarceration and conviction I can tell you my human, civil and constitutional rights have been both abused and denied. I have been roughed up, threatened, denied medical treatment and even kept naked on the floor of a concrete cell. All in an effort to "BREAK ME".
You ask what lengths the government will go to in order to deny the truth and protect itself, simple the answer is any lengths necessary to silence the truth. These past 6+ years as I have lived in the "Den of Thieves" I've come to sadly realize that there is more "honor" among thieves than those of our keepers.
I am an American citizen, born and bred, I come from a proud lineage of service members. I am a proud servicemember, but how can this evil exist? This injustice continue unchecked within our very borders and is perpetrated by my fellow American Servicemembers?
This saga shall continue so long as I draw a breath, so for those who fight injustice....stay strong and NEVER give up.
