My husband, Rev. Edward Pinkney, was convicted of voter fraud by an all
white jury in 2007. The jury was motivated by something other than the
Truth. Legal abuse and prosecution of Blacks, poor whites and Hispanics
is flourishing in Berrien County, Michigan.
By Dorothy Pinkney
My husband was placed on house arrest, with an ankle bracelet and portable monitor. He was re-arrested recently for violation of probation. My husband should never have been charged, much less convicted. Judge Butzbaugh witnessed Tommie Travis say his life was threatened by the lead detective, Sgt. Dannifel and the prosecutor, Gerald Vignansky, if he didn’t lie. Mr. Travis said on the witness stand that he was paid by Dannifel to give false testimony. The judge did nothing. On the tape the prosecutor produced as evidence, Mr. Travis asked them, “Are you still going to pay me?” Detective Dannifel said, “Yes.” Judge Butzbaugh did not request an investigation.
My husband took a polygraph test to prove his innocence and passed with flying colors, but the Judge refused to allow that in as evidence. My husband is in the corrupt Berrien County jail because his probation was revoked for quoting from the Kings James Bible, Book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 28 and Verses 15-22, in a newspaper article. On Dec, 20, 2007, the Judge ruled that the quotation from Moses was inflammatory and threatening. Therefore, the Judge confused Biblical law and prophecy with human threats. The word of God is True Prophecy, given to His inspired anointed men and women to point out the very seriousness of Divine consequences for sinful, wicked, unlawful and disobedient behavior of others. If God’s Truth is rejected by whom it is for automatically open the door and allow curses to enter in. If a person can’t deal with Biblical Truth, I suggest one must deal with God.
At no time did my husband state or imply that he would commit any of these actions! Indeed, the idea that a human being can cause another to be cursed by God or to be smitten with consumption, fever and inflammation is far fetched and a bizarre interpretation. And to throw someone in jail for simply pointing them out is a fearful assault on the First Amendment, freedom of speech and religious rights. Biblical Truth revals that our Savior, Jesus Christ is the perfect example of this type of injustice.
We’re asking everyone concerned with First Amendment freedom of speech and religious rights to write support letters to: Atty. Hugh Davis, Constitutional Litigation Assoc., PC, 450 W. Fort St., Detroit, MI 48226. We have sacrificed for many of you. We need you to stand with us!
Together we can change a Nation.
