Dothan politicians used funds to pay a videographer to portray the town in a favorable light, just as they have paid others to do same. If it was so great, no paid video would have been necessary. This video does not portray the real Dothan. Dothan is a town run on the back of protected illegal drug trade. Police, politicians and courts protect the main income: illegal drug trafficking. Move there to your detriment; they will steal your soul, your money and everything you hold dear.
We already know Doug Valeska cannot be trusted, that he is a liar who consistently spews BS to the court and to jurors about evidence he doesn’t have or “that he lost” in order to gain a false conviction on some poor soul in his cross hairs. Valeska has been playing dirty pool with the court system as D.A. for almost three decades. Valeska’s collusion with another alleged White Supremacist, Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish enabled them to attempt to wipe out the young black male population; or at least to be able to control said young men by and through false arrests wherein illegal drugs and weapons were planted on them.
Valeska was even reported this year by former Alabama Chief Supreme Court Justice, Sue Bell Cobb, for his lying and corrupt ways…
This is not a “one off” this is and has been a consistent pattern and practice of Doug Valeska for decades. Dothan’s Mayor Mike Schmitz wants its citizens to think all is great in Dothan; BUT IT IS NOT. A little prayer meeting at the civic center doesn’t fix decades of lying, cheating and stealing the very lives of citizens that has gone on for decades with “the courthouse crowd”.
Months ago national and international press exposed Dothan, AL a hotbed of racial discrimination against black citizens by City Police, the D.A., Doug Valeska and the Houston County Court system. Stories of blacks being set up with false charges and targeted for prison sentences and sentenced differently than whites for the same crime rocketed throughout the world. Now the Southern Poverty Law Center has filed a federal law suit against the Dothan City Schools for essentially the same torts, these involving black and disabled students where they were disciplined, arrested and charged for minor infractions at a disproportionate rate.
Last I heard, Alabama’s 20th Circuit was purported to be a democracy, part of the United States, under guidance of the United States Constitution with said rights available to ALL citizens. What happened to Kharon Davis being innocent until proven guilt? Unfortunately Davis has been held without any kind of trial by jury; just D.A. Doug Valeska using his inflated self importance to steal away yet another life of someone he possibly considers “less than”. Valeska has quite the history of using his elected position to selectively prosecute not white collar criminals marauding throughout town, he like a man of no character or honor targets the most fragile members of society.
If Alabama is a democracy, why did D.A. for the 20th circuit; Doug Valeska, have armed Court House staff escort free citizens of said democracy out of a public courtroom; one paid for with public funds, one where the law allows ANY citizen can legally observe proceedings, to a hall where said “free citizens” (who just happen to be family members and supporters of Kharon Davis) were photographed and video taped by sheriff deputies?
What were the photos and videos taken for? Training techniques? To see what a black citizen looks like up close? To offer them birthday cakes and ice cream on their special day? Or maybe it was to make sure they got a ride on pink ribboned unicorns landing momentarily outside the Houston County Courthouse.
NOTHING IS SIMPLE NOR HAS IT BEEN WITH REGARD TO THE KHARON DAVIS CASE.
Davis has been jailed for almost nine years for an alleged murder; all without a court trial. This is Alabama’s longest “known” inmate who has been jailed without a trial. Information has been forthcoming that Kharon Davis who is the grandson of a local civil rights activist, has been beaten, drugged and held in solitary confinement while authorities have attempted to force him to accept a plea deal.
WITH THE KIND OF KANGAROO LAW BEING PRACTICED IN HOUSTON COUNTY, WHO NEEDS THE FARCE OF A COURT PROCEEDING?
Some strange things happen is Dothan and throughout Houston County, but if this is true; whoo hoo there is a big problem, bigger than we thought.
If as current D.A. Doug Valeska was allegedly heard stating, that D.A. candidate Gary Maxwell gave defeated D.A. candidate Arthur Medley a pile of Benjamins, where did that kind of $$$ come from? Was the source some kind of dark money amassed similarly to the way Governor Bentley was building he and Rebekah Mason’s nest egg.
APPARENTLY SOMEONE WANTS TO CONTROL WHOMEVER IS IN THE DRIVERS SEAT FOR DOTHAN D.A., SO MUCH SO, THAT PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING WOULD BE FAIR GAME.
Or could this be another stash of cash coming from the city and county coffers to prevent Medley from speaking to the press? Recently SJCA was told that Medley had breached his promise to speak with a CBS producer that had come to Dothan to interview victims of Houston County prosecutorial misconduct.
IF THERE WAS NOTHING GOING ON WITH DOTHAN, THE COURTHOUSE CROWD AND THE POLICE THEN WHY SO MUCH INTEREST IN THROWING CONFLICTING “EVENTS” TO DIVIDE THE BLACK COMMUNITY?
the NAACP sponsored a march last week in Dothan. Pastor Kenny Glascow was no where to be seen; he was in another state running some kind of speaking engagement. Last time NAACP came into town to interview victims, Mayor Mike Schmitz was concerned about the truth coming out about Dothan and enough so that he allegedly woke Glascow up at 6 in the morning and told him he was to put on some kind of event as a diversionary tactic. Last Saturday when the NAACP was again publicly in Dothan, City Council member Kevin Dorsey put on some kind of event offering free fried fish plates and hot dogs to divert black citizens away from the NAACP march. It is our understanding Dorsey doesn’t have the funds to put on such an event, even if he had caught the little fishy and fried them himself; where did the stash of cash come from Mayor Schmitz? Anita Dawkins on Saturday while the NAACP was marching to call attention to Dothan’s systemic racial bias, was running a home buyers seminar targeted to blacks. Last but not least; Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz put on his own MAYOR’S BIKE RIDE FOR FITNESS.
Could the control of the D.A.’s office have anything to do with protecting what a blogger stated to the NY FBI was a $20 Million a month drug business rolling through the Wiregrass? Of course that was the end of what was forthcoming from said blogger on the matter; “they had a family to protect”. If that kind of loot is rolling through the doors, certainly several honorable citizens would avert their eyes if their palms were greased well enough. And that would be reason enough for the powers that be not to want any kind of federal investigation into the questionable police and judicial system in Houston County. If there is a large amount of illegal substances being trafficked, that would explain the mountainous volume of banks found in the circle city. Mighty interesting D.A. Valeska’s wife is an officer of a local bank. We always heard so many banks to launder so much money.
SJCA hopes the tale allegedly told by Valeska was a figment of his imagination, or a way of trying to take the heat off himself for his own transgressions.
COULD THIS BE THE BEGINNING OF HOUSTON COUNTY POLITICIANS ALREADY IN HOT WATER, POINTING FINGERS AT EACH OTHER?
Joining Sessions, Shelby, Strange and Bentley laying prone in the streets in and around Dothan to protect the corrupt little world they control would be the rest of the “courthouse crowd”: Doug Valeska, Judge Larry Anderson, Judge Mike Conaway, Steve Parish, Gary Maxwell, Andy Hughes, Mike Schmidt and the Houston County Commission among others.
Counting votes is essentially a simple process; except when so much rides on the outcome such as protecting the status quo of illegal judicial terror as is ongoing in Houston, County, AL.
I have previously written about what appears to be Carla Woodall’s part in jury rigging and throwing court cases for ethics violator, DA Doug Valeska in his campaign to jail Dothan’s young black men. When you have 6 out of 12 jurors on a fraudulent case being prosecuted by Valeska who are friends of Valeska or work for the city then something is wrong.
