PEOPLE'S LEGAL FRONT
BECAUSE THESE ARE NOT THE TRADE SECRETS OF ATTORNEYS
LAWS MOTIONS LINKS
Hello, My name is Robin McDermott. I have been involved in criminal, and civil pleadings. Robin was brutally assaulted by police and falsely charged with obstructing officer T.D. Royal by verbal aggression and with assault on a law enforcement officer.
It is a now past two years since officer T.D. Royal pulled Robin by her hair and tossed her off her front porch to the ground and sicced his K9 on her. On September 20, 1999 Robin represented herself at trial on the charge of attempted assault of
officer John A. 'Demo' Smith and won acquittal without the necessity of presenting a case. On January 10, 2000 Robin represented herself at a second trial on the charge of obstructing an officer by verbal aggression. On January 28, 2000 Judge Calvin
Holden declared what we have said all along, verbalizations do not rise to obstruction and declared Robin 'not guilty' of the charge. On the 1st of February 2000 the United States Justice Department informed Robin that the investigation of the complaint
she made two years ago of criminal civil rights violations by these police officers was found to be insufficient. Robin contacted the Justice Department to ask them why, after two plus years, no one has bothered to talk with even one witness that wasn't
a cop in this case and to suggest that perhaps the sufficiency for criminal prosecution would be found if the investigation were completed. In the meantime, there is now a federal civil rights lawsuit awaiting decision by the presiding judge of the
western district of Missouri concerning Robin's motion to proceed as a poor person, waiving the $150 fee required to file. This was filed on February 1, 2000 and no word has yet been forthcoming on her motion. This appears to be yet one more attempt to
run out the statute of limitations and thereby allow these 'officers' to continue to act like jack-booted nazi thugs with dogs, with impunity.
