Ill pray it gets some momentum and we can have at least a few sacrifices for this mess, but I wont hold my breath. It will probably get squashed.

Cheney charged over jail 'abuses'

A judge has yet to approve the indictment against Mr Cheney
A Texas grand jury has charged US Vice-President Dick Cheney for "organised criminal activity" related to alleged abuse of private prison inmates.

The indictment says Mr Cheney - who has invested $85m (£56m) in a company that holds shares in for-profit prisons - conspired to block an investigation.

The indictment has not been seen by a judge, who could dismiss it.

Mr Cheney's spokeswoman declined to comment, saying his office had not yet received a copy of the charges.

One Texas lawyer said the charges were politically motivated.

'Conflict of interest'

The indictment was overseen by county District Attorney Juan Guerra, an outgoing prosecutor at the end of his term of office.

He cites the case of Gregorio De La Rosa, who died on 26 April, 2001 inside a private prison in Willacy County, Texas.

The grand jury in Willacy County, near the US-Mexico border, accuses Mr Cheney of committing "at least misdemeanour assaults" of inmates by allowing other inmates to assault them.

It said there was a "direct conflict of interest" because Mr Cheney had influence over federal contracts awarded to prison companies.

US grand juries weigh evidence to decide whether a case is worthy of being sent for a full trial, before issuing formal charges known as indictments.

The three-page indictment also alleges that former US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales "used his position...to stop the investigations as to the wrong doings."

The grand jury wrote that it made its decision "with great sadness," but said they had no other choice but to indict Mr Cheney and Mr Gonzales "because we love our country."

Several other related indictments were brought against a host of public officials in what one lawyer called a circus act by the outgoing prosecutor, Mr Guerra, who he said was seeking revenge in his final weeks in office.

The other day I saw a buggy with a real nice bumper sticker: My America Do Not Torture

Cheney is a traitor (9/11) and a psychopath (waterboarding).

The PTB behind him need to see the message from us.

sorry - I was worried about copyright

and remember 911, Cheney was asked by a confused member of staff if he wanted to change his orders, and refused.
Go for him and his co-conspiratorial profiteering rabble now - there are many other 'incidents' to finish them off - take them down now!

How much do you want to bet that the harshest sentence will be a suspended sentence and a fine if this even goes that far?

It probably depends whether or not the Presidential pardon covers these charges.

Uh oh! the last time Cheney had a run in with a lawyer from Texas, this was the result:



A week or so after he was shot, Mr Whittington had to apologize to Cheney for being shot in the face!

Quote:
"We all assume certain risks in whatever we do," Whittington said. "Whatever activities we pursue and regardless of how experienced, careful and dedicated we are, accidents do and will happen."

...

"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week," Whittington said.

Cool DICK CHENEY INDICTED By Texas Grand Jury

News Channel 5 Texas
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0vmlDUBjuE

Transcript
LISA CORTEZ, ANCHOR, NEWSCHANNEL 5: Good afternoon, everyone. As you first saw on newschannel5.tv, a Willacy County grand jury has indicted the vice president of the United States.

OSCAR ADAME, ANCHOR, NEWSCHANNEL 5: NEWSCHANNEL 5's Stephanie Stone is on the story. She's live in Willacy County with details. Stephanie.

STEPHANIE STONE, NEWSCHANNEL 5 REPORTER: District Attorney Juan Guerra refuses to comment about the indictments, but he did say he presented a lot of evidence about a lot of corrupt people. The indictments are not public record yet, but attorneys for some of the people involved have confirmed the allegations, and they've confirmed who's involved. At this point we can tell you the vice president of the United States is named in that indictment, as well as the former attorney general Alberto Gonzales, state Senator Eddie Lucio Jr., Judge Migdalia Lopez, Judge Janet Leal, and Willacy County district clerk Gilbert Lozano, among others. Guerra recently told NEWSCHANNEL 5 that he was investigating corruption within the private prison system following an inmate's death. He also alleged that there were a number of public officials and elected leaders who are involved and who are profiting from the prisons. Some of the attorneys involved have said they plan to file motions to quash the indictment sometime this week. We talked to the district clerk about all of this. We'll tell you what he has to say, coming up tonight on NEWSCHANNEL 5 at 6:00. We also talk to Dick Cheney's press secretary, and we'll tell you what they have to say, coming up tonight at 6:00. For now, reporting live in Willacy County, Stephanie Stone, NEWSCHANNEL 5 at 5:00.

ADAME: Alright. In Stephanie's story, she mentions a couple of judges in her report, and NEWSCHANNEL 5 has learned that the indictments out of Willacy County with those judges taking a toll on the courts in Cameron County.

CORTEZ: That's right. As you just mentioned, two state district judges are off the bench right now because of these indictments. NEWSCHANNEL 5's Rita Garcia is following this story. She's live in the Cameron County newsroom with those details. Rita.

RITA GARCIA, NEWSCHANNEL 5 REPORTER: State district judges Janet Leal and Migdalia Lopez are both listed on that indictment, so they cannot hear any cases right here at the Cameron County Courthouse. Now, we've learned Judge Leal was hearing a murder case this morning when she was told to step down because she's under investigation. A retired state district judge was called in to finish up the day. And in Judge Lopez's courtroom, the 197th, it's lights out.

Despicable as ever - haul that man and his cohorts over his own coals- we're so furious now, he should awaken and concede his ill-gotten gains - go for it patriots, get those evil swines OUT!

I am normally a peace-loving person, want fairness to prevail, but his evil doings have reciprocations throughout the world. I love peace - have been through so many peace movements, but my patience now has snapped.
Where is your 'Constitution' - DO YOU CARE?
Please stop this evil - I send you lots of love and light, as I must lobby in our own country now.

A reminder of what this traitor participated. A photo taken after the twin towers collapsed to the ground, or did they?

I expect the naysayers to come in here soon and proclaim this indictment to be just another ploy by the PTB to create an illusion of change.
