Another Massachusetts Outrage – Police Descend on Bernard Baran's Mother

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Dear Friend of Justice,

The Pittsfield police gave Bee’s mother a nice Mother’s Day present — they descended en masse, lights flashing, on her home at around eleven last night (Friday).

They pounded on her door, demanding Bee, claiming that they had a warrant for his arrest.

When they conceded to Bee’s brother that they in fact had no warrant, they were denied admission.

Judge Locke had issued Bee a court order giving him permission to visit his mother from yesterday through Monday morning.

No one bothered to tell the people who do the GPS monitoring or the Pittsfield Police.

One of the most amazing things about Massachusetts government is its gross incompetence — gross incompetence that extends to the highest levels.

John Swomley is working to get this mess straightened out.

But the state has accomplished its purpose. It has ruined Mother’s Day for one of the finest women it has ever been my privilege to know.

This is not the first time something like this has happened. Almost every time Bee gets permission to visit, the state does something outrageous. Bee and his family are the victims of the worst case of injustice I have thus far encountered. When will enough be enough?

May God damn the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!
