Former Tribal leader appeals for pedophile rights in his last court statements.
Obama’s champion of Northern Michigan describes his conviction on child sexual assault in a way that suggests HE is the victim of racism and bigotry. The former Tribal Chair of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa & Chippewa Indians wasted no opportunity in placing the blame for his predicament. From UpNorth Live:
Bailey was sentenced to 25 to 50 years after being found guilty in Grand Traverse County of two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct back in April.
….Bailey also went on to reference having two all white juries convict him of his crimes.
“To me it’s the glaring example of the the Jim Crow of the north,” Bailey said.
Quite obviously, the Jury plotted his fall from influence and subsequent persecution.
That or the civilized world isn’t yet ready for the complete normalization of those child-adult complex relationships. Maybe the next time the DSM is revised, pedophiles can have their day as well?
The world is changing very rapidly indeed.
This comment is not about the crime charged but rather the procedures used for conviction. Tribal members fall under US jurisdiction the result of several treaties--treaties trump the Constitution (which is why we must fight any UN "treaties") So, how did these convictions take place in a non-Indian tribunal? Did Bailey waive federal jurisdiction? Two different counties prosecuted him--was he prosecuted in the wrong tribunal? Being prosecuted in a tribunal which may lack the required jurisdiction and authority--is grounds for reversal. Also seems that his comments about the jury array--gives rise to an appeal challenge which may be successful. Was this the game plan all along? A backdoor usurping of treaties? What better issue to do this with--a tribal Chief committing the most heinous of crimes is all that was necessary for local governments taking jurisdiction where none is had forever. There's a lesson here--not sure anyone's paying attention.
