Subject: Fw: A Mother Weeps Three Years LaterThis is in the interest of truth, justice and the American way.Last night, I spoke with a women, Constance Flaum, whose story, if told only a few years ago, would seem incredulous. After reading her letter, I do not know how to begin any commentary about this tragedy. However as we have seen in incident after incident (Ruby Ridge, Waco, the man shot 41 times in New York because he pulled a wallet, the kicking and beating of a suspect in Philadelphia and the kicking and beating of a car jacker in Miami) of abuse by law enforcement over the last ten years, her story does seem plausible if not, I hate to say, probable. I have not flushed out all the details, but what I have heard so far makes me with weep with her.This incident happened in Huntington Park, California in March of 1998. This looks as if this is near the Los Angeles (Rampart and all that). The man's name was Michael Arnold. If we take the worst case scenario that this was the most despicable hombre that ever walked the planet, it is beyond comprehension that one hundred sixty-five shots were needed to bring this man down. According to Ms. Flaum her son had never been in any trouble. And no press coverage! I don't know that should surprise me, we have a rapist in the Whitehouse and that does not seem to matter to the press.The Congressional Black Caucus did at least do a dog and pony show, which we shall call a "People Killed by Cops tour. Nothing else. What do you expect from a political hack, like John Conyers, who was the leader of the parade?We are living in a Banana Republic.However, the real purpose of this e-mail is to gather information about this incident. If anyone who has knowledge about this shooting, please forward it to me. I like to have an explanation that would ease my feelings of despair and the wonderings of just how callous as a people have we become.LarryHang on to your knickers as you read this one.
Dear Mr. Bolin,
Thank you for your interest in the horrible, senseless murder of my son.
When it happened I naively thought that when I could prove the truth there would be justice, that when the truth was revealed to the "proper authorities" right would prevail, that base disregard for human life could not be ignored, nor tolerated.
Now, almost three year later, it's as if my Son was murdered in the realm of the invisible, and my cries for truth and justice are screamed with a mute voice. I was killed with my sweet Son and woke up in hell.
I don't know what your interest is in the killing of my son, I am just very grateful that you care. I know just what you mean about too many of the groups. They are all good people, trying to right things and effect change, but most of them are so focused and single-minded on their own good work that they miss the big picture.
Groups that are aware of the details of my son's killing march, and protest, and decry police brutality, but NEVER site the most obvious example,i.e. the only citizen in the history of this country ever shot so many times by the police- 165 times-Michael Arnold.
The killing of Michael Arnold is sadly the only one with the full potential to be the key that will open Pandora's Box.
The sheer numbers alone are staggering: According to the police report there were between 70-80 unites on the scene with at least seven agencies represented. That is a total of 140 to160 uniformed cops on the scene with 22 officer from three different agencies admittedly firing in excess of 250 rounds into a quiet,sleeping community,many of which penetrated through the walls of family homes, while 165 bullets shattered EVERY bone in Michael's body, then ripped off all of the flesh from those shattered bones.
Then there are the facts of forensic evidence, Expert findings and available testimony, and the testimony of a score of independent eye-witnesses that Michael was unarmed, in compliance, and with his empty hands in the air when the police opened fire.
Michael Arnold was a good, law-abiding citizen who had never been in trouble, or done a bad thing in his life. He was a precious and loving son, an adored big brother, a valued friend, and honored member of his community, a philanthropist and composer of beautiful music who collected stuffed animals and carried his old blind dog around in his arms.A good,sweet man who walked through life softly.
How did such a man die this unlikely, ignoble death at the hands of the police? This question has been asked and probed by experts and they have come to the conclusion that there are only two possible answers:
2-the thrill of the kill (in the soul-chilling words of LAPD Officer Mark Flashman in a Ch. .2 news interview on Feb.22'1999, "There is no greater thrill in life than hunting man. Once you have done that you never want to do anything else!"
God help us all!!!!!!!!!!!
This case is also the definitive case because it crosses all boundaries and brings home as no other police shooting can that Police Brutality and the use of Deadly Force is no respecter of class, race or gender.
Michael Arnold was a successful, rich, blond, blue-eyed businessman. The shooters were white, black, Hispanic and Asian,male and female.My son is DEAD proof that absolutely NO ONE is safe in this insane lawless America of today, making his murder the potential wake-up call this country needs if we are to go into the future as a free people.
Then, there is the HUGE cover-up by the media, and the farce of our Judicial System.
No law firm would take my case because under law I have no "standing" because I experienced no financial loss by the death of my son so, I took it to court myself "pro per" and hung in for a year and a half before it was finally dismiss in Federal Court by "The Right Honorable A Howard Matz" . Why? Not because the police were innocent but because of Civil Procedure, and me without a de-coder ring.
Larry, I have hard, indisputable evidence to prove that my son was innocent of any crime, that he we unarmed, and that the crime against him was nothing less than cold-blooded murder, and the cover-up goes all the way to Washington D.C.
I look forward to receiving the exciting info you told me about. God Bless you and God Save us all.
