To the City of Meridian, Mississippi re: Crimes/Apparent Cover-up
June 23, 2008
City of Meridian
To The City of Meridian, Mississippi, its Mayor, Administration, Counsel, and City Council:
I am with The Arm of Justice. We monitor and record injustices and criminal and illegal acts which have been perpetrated against individuals and groups, including, but not limited to, any possible violation(s) of their civil rights, and denial of equal protection under the law.
We write to you and ask the following questions because you are the Executive Branch of Government in the City of Meridian, Mississippi, responsible for the fair and equal execution of law for all of the citizens of Meridian, Mississippi, and thus need to ensure equal protection under the law, and to ensure that no one is deprived of their rights under color of law or for any other reasons.
Further, we would admonish you to all consider the oaths that you took when installed in your respective offices.
Let us all remember that:“injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” I’m sure that we can all agree that the executive branch of any government needs to be cognizant of the above fact and consider it its duty to ensure justice for all.
#2 Aug 12, 2008
Thus, herein we ask a few direct questions begged from the documentation before us, re: Christ’s Church In Action (CCIA) of Mt. Zion deprivation of rights [file ALPHA]:
-- How do you explain the media blackout from the date of the arson against CCIA (June 8, 2003) to the present?
-- What is your take on the ring burned around the house the day before the arson?
(We find the pictures quite interesting.)
-- How do you account for no investigation at onset and for over one (1) year after the arson?
-- How do you account for the police record (computer program #CMS301L) that clearly indicates fraud and confirms lack of any investigation of arson for over one (1) year?(Only the alleged perpetrators were contacted; and, we understand, they subsequently left Mississippi for Florida (a group of about 250 people) allegedly with passive help from Meridian, Mississippi City Administration.)
-- How do you account for the fact that names, numbers and other details of the dummy sham report of the non-investigation (not done until Summer of 2004, over one year after the fire) are erroneous and that dates/locations of perpetrators prove the fraud?
-- How do you account for the harassment of the victims of arson by the City of Meridian, Mississippi, via a letter from the city’s housing inspector, sent less than three (3) weeks after the arson, demanding demolition or repair work within ten (10) days, especially since evidence of the crime was within said building?
-- How do you account for the above harassment of arson victims who are church people who have taken vows of poverty and have no insurance?
#3 Aug 12, 2008
-- How do you account for the audio content of the CD made by alleged CAO of Meridian, Mississippi, Ken Storms?
-- How do you account for statements we understand you are well aware of, from one Jesse Palmer, Meridian, Mississippi City Councilman?
-- How do you account for this Meridian, Mississippi City Councilman, Jesse Palmer, saying, among other things, that “you were supposed to pack your bags and run after (they burned your house)”, and “don’t you know what they did to Martin Luther King when they couldn’t stop him? They had him killed,” and “If I was mad at you I’d tell you to your face and hit you with a 2 by 4—not these people; these people are sneaky—they’ll go behind the scenes—and there is no limit to their capability”?
-- How do you account for the recent situation with this same Meridian, Mississippi City Councilman, Jesse Palmer, when he was invited by the staff of CCIA of Mt. Zion to come to their headquarters and look and listen to the hard evidence, failing to show up for a fixed appointment he had set and made; and when contacted, saying that he was warned not to come and look at the evidence, and mentioned a number of people who had warned him, one of the names mentioned being “Hammack”?
-- How do you account for the words and actions of the publisher of your local Meridian, Mississippi newspaper, The Meridian Star, of which we understand you have all been made aware?(Particularly, but not limited to, the statements by Crystal Dupre, the publisher:“You’re not going to get the truth out in my newspaper, you’re going to have to go somewhere else to get the truth out, it’s not going to be in my newspaper!”)
#4 Aug 12, 2008
-- How do you account for your apparent lack of concern regarding factual errors concerning CCIA of Mt. Zion being published in The Meridian Star?
-- How do you account for your Meridian, Mississippi City Council’s refusal to allow the victims to plead their case and present evidence in public forums?
-- How do you account for the lack of normal human compassion for victims of such serious crimes and pervasive criminal acts? Would you not agree that it would be normal under such circumstances for a situation like this to be prominent in the local media, and that there would then be an outpouring of help, as opposed to the hurting and slandering of the victims?
-- How do you account for your Meridian, Mississippi Mayor, Members of the Meridian, Mississippi City Council, and other members of the community stating such falsehoods as “there was no arson”?(In light of the documentation before us, that would be like saying “there was no holocaust.”)
#5 Aug 12, 2008
-- How do you account for the fact that some of the slanderous things that are being spread by the Mayor and other members of Meridian, Mississippi’s City Administration include horrendous and false information resident on various internet instruments, which was proven to be totally false and erroneous upon investigation by Sheldon Whitehouse, who was then Policy Chief to then Governor Sundlun of Rhode Island?(Sheldon Whitehouse has since held the offices of Rhode Island Attorney General, State’s Federal Attorney, and is now a United States Senator.)
(What we understand is that the Mayor’s office has been given copies of this document prepared by Sheldon Whitehouse, which was hand-signed by then Governor Sundlun. This document was a plea by this independent investigator, appointed by the governor, to pardon Wade Demers, since he had not committed any crime. It should be noted that the only reason given for not granting the pardon appears to be political. Pastor Demers had previously been chairman of the Republican Party, and this was a Democratic administration. Governor Sundlun’s reason for not granting a pardon was that a pardon had not been granted in Rhode Island in forty (40) years, and that he didn’t want to “effectively reverse the judgment of both the Superior and Supreme Courts of our state.” Our research shows us that the indication here is that if Governor Sundlun were to grant the pardon to Wade Demers, it would embarrass Rhode Island’s judiciary, because the judiciary was involved in the framing, which they accomplished as their retribution against Wade Demers for his blowing the whistle on much government corruption in the State of Rhode Island on state, local, and federal levels. It should be noted that in the state of Rhode Island, among the people who were involved in the slandering and framing of Wade Demers, was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Thomas Fay, and now District Court Judge Rogeriee Thompson, who were both gubernatorial appointments.)
-- How do you account for the need for people outside of normal channels to have to step in to make this inquiry, as we observe clearly that there is a problem, simply seen, from objective data that we have, which we understand you have been offered, which some of you have seen, and which all have access to?
#6 Aug 12, 2008
Obviously there is a problem—if you, the City of Meridian, Mississippi, are not involved, then certainly your prompt and clear response can be expected.
We ask you to please respond in writing, as soon as practicable. Your cooperation or lack thereof will be regarded as indicative of the Meridian, Mississippi City Administration’s complicity and/or initiative in the wrongdoing.
As we investigate further, we will be requesting further details concerning this.
Also, be alerted that we are reviewing objective documentation regarding children (minors) being undermined, led into delinquency and kidnapped, coupled with illegal and fraudulent use of the courts, and subsequent brainwashing, physical deprivation and additional contribution to delinquency across state lines and national borders—all of this also apparently being ignored and it appears, from evidence before us, that the Meridian, Mississippi City Administration has not only ignored but has aided, abetted, and enabled these serious wrongdoings.
At this point we just have some simple questions: What do you say concerning the relationship between Lauderdale County (MS) and Youth Court Judge Frank Coleman, and Meridian, Mississippi Mayor John Robert Smith?
And, to your knowledge, do they share common religious beliefs contrary to those taught at CCIA of Mt. Zion?
#7 Aug 12, 2008
Because of the incredibly serious and heinous nature of what’s happened in this case, we are proceeding meticulously over a number of documents, records, and recorded material, and confessions by perpetrators (given both on the Internet and to various people in the Meridian, Mississippi Community who are not directly involved with CCIA but who have come forward), as well as recorded statements made by a court-appointed counselor who said he was afraid to blow the whistle, but who made the tape recording concerning said matter regarding said children being forced to make the call they didn’t want to make. And it appears that people involved in the arson are the same people that did the forcing, and it is clear from the tape recording.
We would caution you to be forthcoming, completely open, and honest, and to not participate in continuing this…and, if there have been any cover-ups of any matters, that you, not as a group but as individuals in this, do not continue to protect those who are guilty.
There is no doubt in our minds from what we have observed in the objective data that serous wrongdoing has occurred and is ongoing.
We are, at this point, just researching, investigating, and determining those who are responsible, both actively and passively. We understand that you have all been informed of: Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Section 242: Deprivation of rights under color of law, and Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Sec. 241, Conspiracy against Rights, as well as the RICO conspiracy laws, and Title 18 regarding misprision of felony.
#8 Aug 12, 2008
We also understand that you have been informed that under the laws cited below, if there has been a kidnapping or death threats or arson, that the punishment for conviction under federal prosecution can be the death penalty. In the instant matter we have three (3) kidnappings, a number of murder attempts, indications of an attempt to kill, and an arson, along with many other criminal acts.(From Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Sec. 241, deprivation of rights under color of law:“if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of…fire…or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, or an attempt to kill…they…may be sentenced to death.” From Title 18, Part I, Chapter 13, Sec. 241, conspiracy against rights:“if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap…or an attempt to kill…they…may be sentenced to death.”)
You also might look into something that we in our research have found in the Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended, Sec. 97-5-39: contributing to the neglect or delinquency of a child; felonious abuse and/or battery of a child.
To quote sections from 97-5-39 (1)“any…or other person who willfully commits any act or omits the performance of any duty, which act or omission contributes to or tends to contribute to the neglect or delinquency of any child, or… or… or… or… or… shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction shall be punished by a fine not to exceed One thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) or by imprisonment not to exceed one (1) year in jail, or by both such fine and imprisonment.”
We understand that, compared to other laws and statutes violated, that this is a relatively minor crime. But it certainly indicates a low threshold at which investigation by the local authorities in Mississippi should have been instituted long ago.
Our cursory look at court transmittals and documents indicates serious violation of Mississippi Department of Human Services (DHS) procedural laws, and heinous violations of constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, rights, and an abuse of power by the courts, lack of equal protection under the law, and total disregard of the rights of the parents.
#9 Aug 12, 2008
The material here is voluminous, but we’ve looked at enough to realize again here, with the arson and the other terrible things that have happened, that it warrants our full efforts in detailing what actually happened, from start to finish.
Since, up until now, we’ve been given to understand you have all refused to listen to the details on this matter, or even look at the evidence that is now before us here in New England, as we’ve said earlier, there appears to be a gagging of these people from speaking in public forums and the obvious and real media blackout.
So, again, as with the arson, as we gain understanding of what’s happened here, hopefully with your cooperation we will be seeking further insights from you.
We would suggest that you act as individuals rather than collectively; act as an individual to do what’s right, rather than what it appears to be: a collective effort to deny these people their rights under the law and to be involved to aid and abet in slander up until this point; that is, that you’ve chosen collectively and complicitly to cover up this whole affair.
(Of course the objective of slander here is to create an environment and atmosphere of hatred, prejudice, bias and bigotry, in which the victims are put in a negative light in the local public opinion, so that anything done against them, in the worst case, would be considered justified, and at the least, would create apathy which allows the deprivation of rights and denial of equal protection under the law to continue.)(Here I would like to interject some personal advice: you should consider acting with the integrity, cognizance, common sense, and ethics that are demanded in any office of government, as opposed to acting like mindless, crowd-following, apple-polishing teenagers trying to appease and impress their peer group.)
Please be advised that our offices are not only communicating with the victims and Meridian, Mississippi City Administration based on the documentation (the objective data that we have), but we are also interacting with many others who are involved in this directly or as observers.
Please note: We have referred to objective data a number of times in this document. Understand that we recognize the difference between subjective statements of opinion or perspective and truly objective data.
#10 Aug 12, 2008
We have been given volumes of signed and dated affidavits. We consider those as subjective though supporting data, but not conclusive.
It is our findings in the objective portions of the data that are our basis for action in this complex situation.
There is too much evidence which is from sources that are indisputable, and too many factual points which confirm the truth of the victims’ allegations, for us to stand by or stand back. We shall proceed until we can present our findings to and through proper channels to bring the light of public opinion to bear, so that the up-to-now constrained authorities can and will have to act.
THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED ON UNCHANGING PRINCIPLES, AND ONE WAS “JUSTICE FOR ALL.” PREJUDICE, BIAS, BIGOTRY, AND HATRED SHOULD NOT AND WILL NOT SUSPEND THOSE PRINCIPLES.
Let justice be done! Let us cooperate to that end.
Very truly yours,
For The Arm of Justice

#12 Aug 31, 2008
i can only comment to the facts that i have the most personal knowledge and experience in and that is the fact that most of these people that have given you an inch, sir, and you have taken a mile. they have given of their time and resources, but you didn't appreciate any of it and wanted to make those resources your own to do with as you pleased. people don't care enough about your individual case to read it in the newspaper over and over and over, or hear it at the city council meetings or board of supervisor meetings repeatedly. if you do have a point to make about a conspracy or a cover-up, don't you think you've made it a thousand times by now? it's not your newspaper, it's not your forum. it's not that all of us didn't give you a chance at one time or another, and regret that we did. once we stopped listening to the rhetoric you repeat, you personally attack. not physically, not destruction of property, but attack nonetheless.

if you want this issue exposed you need to contact the Truth Master he exposes issues like this one in his weekly Tabloid E-mail him @ email@example.com for his phone number
#14 Sep 1, 2008
Why don't you post the pictures, audio and documents that you say are proof of what happened?
In every post one of the socks make it talks about such items but never can produce them.
If such things do exist, then it can only do your cause good to let everyone see them.
As of right now you look like a fool.

You make a good point about the documents. To answer you, some of these documents WERE posted and were immediately deleted by The Meridian Star in Meridian, Mississippi. Currently these documents are being prepped to be put into a blog by The Arm of Justice…we will keep you updated as to when all of our capabilities are up and the material is all gathered and put together and on the blog.
The information is available now for people who wish to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. When we find out that you are “safe,” we will make arrangements for you to view the documents. As soon as time permits, the blog will be available on the World Wide Web for all to see.
Also, any who have had access to The Meridian Star’s Hey Martha forum and who read posts prior to their deletion (as well as those who have accessed other forums such as this one), and many who have had contact with Pastor Demers, his wife, and some of the other victims, have been invited to sit down and look at the documents, listen to the CD and the tape recordings, etc. Some have gone to Meridian, Mississippi from other states and have seen the materials, and some locally in Meridian, Mississippi. It is my understanding that Wade Demers is in the local phone book in Meridian Mississippi and has had his name and phone number published on many forums, blogs, correspondences, the newspaper (The Meridian Star), with extensive invitations for people to sit down with him and view documents and so forth…so, to a degree, people have had ample opportunity to view the documented evidence in person, including hearing the audio such as the CD made by the Meridian, Mississippi CAO Ken Storms, which has his voice on it, talking extensively, and other evidentiary audio recordings.
A relative few have accepted, if you compare to the masses of people who have been invited to go look.
However, any of those who saw/heard evidence and who then tried to post on The Meridian Star forum, for example, to state that they had seen the evidence, were banned after posting. If it were not the truth, why would these people be banned? They have also been accused of being Wade Demers, and have been called vicious names. Interesting.
#16 Sep 13, 2008
Perhaps when you view the documents and listen to the recordings, you will be able to finally understand this cover up where state, government, and religious leaders have all teamed up to squelch the story. Yes, Gdd, your suggestion is wise…but it is a monumental task. If you are personally interested, please contact us at the email address posted here above.
An interesting point is that not one person from the city government has even made and attempt to go to look at the evidence (although invited repeatedly) except for City Councilman Jesse Palmer, who made an appointment to go, then didn’t show up. When Christ’s Church In Action’s (CCIA’s) executive assistant called him to reschedule, he did, but then he cancelled because he said he was told not to go, because he would get in trouble if he looked at any evidence. He mentioned lawyers and one of the names he said was “Hammack.”(That is interesting because Mr. Hammack is the attorney for the City of Meridian, Mississippi.)
Yes, Gdd, your thinking is very sound. So, to sum up: 1) We at The Arm of Justice are going to do something about that in the future as time, finances, and capability come together; 2) Please be reminded that some things WERE put on but were deleted by The Meridian Star.
The media, including TV news and print, are refusing to cover this story and those who have wanted to talk to the victims are stopped by the “higher ups.”
Obviously once we’ve established a blog on a website we will be able to overcome this media blackout to some degree. After all, Crystal Dupre, the publisher of The Meridian Star, said, on separate occasions to two of the victims,“You’re not going to get the truth out in my newspaper. You’ll have to go somewhere else to get the truth out.” And she told a third victim that she will not allow the truth on “her” forum either.(Well, I guess you’ve been heard, Ms. Dupre, by us, because we here at The Arm of Justice are finding another way to get the truth out!)
Pastor Demers is not interested in putting time into this, even though he has two degrees in Computer Science. However, we at The Arm of Justice are putting these things together as time and resources permit.
There have been a number of insider people in the Meridian city government who have been misled or threatened, and who have therefore “clammed up,” and sadly have reconsidered searching out the truth further and/or speaking up, due to fear.
But apparently there are some others in government who are elected officials who have some guts and who are not part of the inside “clique,” who are becoming aware of these matters and the evidence.
#17 Sep 13, 2008
Imagine the difficulty when practically all are controlled by the political machine, from the sheriff to the police to the mayor to the attorney general to Federal Congressman and Senators, ad nauseum. That means, if you’re a victim, you can’t call the police – they’re involved. You can’t go to the mayor – he’s involved. You can’t go to the AG, the FBI, your Congressman, your Senator, even the governor. They’re all involved in protecting their own interests.
By the way, the FBI started an investigation but was thwarted by a corrupt person in the FBI. So, everywhere these victims turn, justice is thwarted. Let’s hope that those officials who are not part of the good ol’ boy network will proceed in moving forward on this before it is too late and they have some more Mississippi murders on their hands, just like in 1964. Something is bound to happen. They may kill the victims; that will not stop us.
Yes, your suggestion is logical, because due to the magnitude and hideousness and the horrible things done to both adults and children due to their religious beliefs, the public’s outrage will certainly overcome the spin that comes out of the corrupt political machine, once the evidence is made available to all via the WWW.
However, if you are interested personally, Pastor Demers’ phone number is in the Meridian, Mississippi phone book…and he has made it very clear to all that he is more than willing to show the documented evidence to any and all interested parties.
If you are truly interested, you can certainly contact him to view and/or discuss the evidence. It certainly makes one think,,,if someone doesn’t take him up on his offer, then who’s the fool? The one with the evidence who offers to show it to anyone to prove that he’s telling the truth, or the one who refuses to go look at the evidence yet says that Pastor Demers’ allegations are not true?
You might also want to check out these links, if you haven’t already done so:
#19 Oct 14, 2009
You sound a little unstable, sir. I've checked the web and dont see anything about the organization you're supposedly with. Also, as with most conspiracy theorists, you hide your identity. If you speak the truth, Why are you ashamed to list YOUR name and details? You seem Very Happy to list anyone elses name that you can come up with??? Just an observation but it does seem strange to me.....
#20 Oct 15, 2009
It's not really strange to people who know them locally in Meridian. The simple truth is there is no Arm of Justice or Berachot Levine. There is only Wade and his little coven of psycho-minions! Do a Google search and the only thing that comes up in connection with all this are the postings on Topix, and a few other places, and that ridculous website! It is incredible that Wade and Lucy and Patti can believe that they are taken seriously by anyone!
#21 Oct 15, 2009
I agree. The only reference I saw to their organization, which has supposedly been in operation for nearly 30 years, was a personal 'webnode' page. The same type of page my children have on facebook and myspace to let their friends keep up with their activities. But there are always people who will believe ANYTHING thats put in front of them. Sad, but true.
