THIS IS A LETTER TO THE DIXIE COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
REPORTING A CRIME BECOMES A CRIME IN DIXIE COUNTY!
Terry George Trussell is an outstanding member of the Dixie County Community with a record of positively contributing to the community in many ways. Additionally, he is an Army veteran, a courageous Patriot, a loving husband and father, as well as a retired business person. He loves his country and his community deeply. He is now being severely punished for doing the duty he was asked to do by his county government as the Foreman of the Dixie County Grand Jury.
1. In April of this year, Terry was asked to serve as a grand juror for Dixie County, was sworn in, and selected to be the Foreman of the Grand Jury.
2. Terry read the Florida rules for grand juries and the Florida Grand Jury Handbook. He understood his duties as Grand Jury Foreman.
3. As Foreman, Terry had a sworn duty to bring any criminal complaints he became aware of to the attention of the Grand Jury in Dixie County.
4. Terry learned about alleged criminal behavior of Dixie County Public Officers and State officials regarding the deployment of Common Core curriculum into the public schools, where after money was paid, the agreement was made to change the curriculum before the new curriculum was published. Terry brought before the Grand Jury this complaint of official wrongdoing (bribery) associated with the adoption of the Common Core curriculum.
5. In the process of bringing the complaint in front of the Grand
Jury, 3rd Circuit Court State Attorney Jeffrey Siegmeister breached multiple Florida statutes by interfering with the official work of the Foreman and manipulating the Jury, thereby causing the Jury to become tainted.
6. Terry documented the events and put the evidence in the form of a Bill of Information into the public record and also gave a letter to Judge Munkittrick, the presiding judge who empaneled the Grand Jury.
7. As Grand Jury Foreman, Terry now faced a difficult problem: he is duty bound to bring forward two criminal complaints, one on Common Core curriculum and the other on Jeffrey Siegmeister’s unlawful and illegal behavior. However, the sitting Grand Jury was already tainted by Siegmeister’s actions. Terry knew that Florida is a Common Law state, so he set up a meeting with We the People of Dixie County to ask if they wanted to reestablish their Constitutionally-guaranteed Common Law Grand Jury. The People voted yes to move forward.
8. The Common Law Grand Jury was renamed The People’s Grand Jury Under Common Law in Dixie County and convened to consider the two criminal complaints. They handed down two True Bills of Presentment, which meant that they believed enough evidence existed to require investigation into both issues. The two True Bills were entered into the public record.
9. Through interviews with members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), it became clear that Terry, because he did his duty as Grand Jury Foreman, was now under attack by the judicial system and FDLE in a systematic effort to engineer a cover-up of Siegmeister’s alleged crimes. In other words, simply because he did his duty and the Grand Jury voted two True Bills of Presentment, he was being charged with 10 felonies for “simulating a legal process,” the possible penalties if convicted of 70 years in jail. In fact, Terry did nothing but what was his sworn duty to do. The evidence clearly shows he DID NOT simulate a legal process.
10. On September 2nd, Terry was arrested and jailed based on a fatally flawed affidavit. Judge Hankinson’s then issued an order, and warrant for the arrest of TERRY GEORGE TRUSSELL. A Void Judgment True Bill was drafted and filing was attempted in both Dixie County Court Clerk Office as well as with the Court Clerk in Perry (seat of the Circuit Court where Judge Hankinson is assigned), both clerks refused to file these important legal papers in terry’s defense. Additionally, it was discovered that the Court Clerk in Dixie County, Dana Johnson, removed and altered, or had removed and altered, official paperwork that Terry had filed previously into the public record.
11. This past Thursday, October 9th, Terry was prepared and present for his 10:00 AM arraignment at the Dixie Court House when at about 9:30 AM, the Deputy Sheriff delivered a 3-page document to Terry and told him the Judge stated if Terry wanted to speak at his own arraignment, he would be required to sign the document. Terry knew if he signed this document, he would be giving up his Constitutionally-protected right to a trial by a jury of his peers. He, therefore, declined to sign it.
12. In the courtroom at 10:00 AM, Judge Hankinson asked “Is Terry George Trussell here, and if yes, please step forward.” Terry was sitting in the courtroom, and he stood up in a clear voice and said “I am here to speak on this matter.” The Judge responded with a question “Are you Terry George Trussell?” As Terry began to respond, the Judge began speaking over Terry and, once again, asked “Is Terry George Trussell here?” Once again, Terry responded affirmatively. The Judge ignored Terry’s response a second time. Finally, the Judge asked once again with which Terry responded “For the record, I am here to speak on that matter.” The Judge then said, “Let the record show that Terry George Trussell has not appeared,” and ordered his arrest on Failure to Appear while also suspending his bond. Terry then said in a very clear and loud voice, “I object! I am here.” The Sheriff Deputies walked over and took Terry by his arms out of the courtroom, handcuffed him, and took him to jail. There are 26 signed, sworn, and notarized affidavits from people who witnessed the events in Judge Hankinson’s courtroom that day. You may click on this link to hear an audio file of these court proceedings at Terry’s arraignment.
13. According to the Florida Grand Jury Handbook provided at FloridaSupremeCourt.org, a Grand Jury Foreman has complete immunity for his actions except in the case he breached the rights of a witness. Because there were no witnesses, brought before the Jury, Terry George Trussell maintained his immunity.
The evidence in this case is clear: if you report a crime by a government official in Dixie County, you will be prosecuted as a criminal. Every action Terry took was based on the Constitution for the united States, the US Supreme Court decision in the case of US v Williams (1992) and as well as the Florida Grand Jury Instructions and the Florida Grand Jury handbook.
Terry is now suffering the loss of his Constitutionally-protected rights for doing his duty. The Dixie County judicial system is working hard to cover up the alleged criminal behavior of Jeffery A. Siegmeister, Judge Munkitrick as well as Dana Johnson. They are instead prosecuting Terry George Trussell on phony charges.
I believe the critical question is: Does the Constitution still apply in Dixie County?
WILL YOU AS THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ALLOW TO STAND UNCONSTITUTIONAL BEHAVIOR AND LACK OF DUE PROCESS BY JUDICIAL OFFICIALS (FROM OUTSIDE OF DIXIE COUNTY) IN OUR DIXIE COUNTY COURTROOM ?
Once you listen to the judges own words, it becomes clear he had no interest in dispensing justice during Terry’s arraignment. His mission was to punish a person who had the courage to report criminal behavior by a corrupt State Attorney. Please don’t forget that Florida Statutes say clearly that the Grand Jury Foreman has complete immunity for his actions with only one exception, breaching the rights of a witness. The reason the foreman has immunity is to protect him from the retribution by those in power.
Because of separation of powers, you as Dixie County commissioners can not address the corruption that has surfaced in the court directly, but you can begin the work of cleaning it up by simply recognizing the fully Constitutional People’s Grand Jury Under Common Law in Dixie County. It is The People’s Grand Jury Under Common Law in Dixie County that has handed down the two True Bills that Terry is now being punished for.
WILL YOU TAKE THE ACTIONS NECESSARY TO RESTORE JUSTICE TO YOUR DIXIE COUNTY JUSTICE SYSTEM BY SIMPLY VOTING TO SUPPORT YOUR DIXIE COUNTY PEOPLE'S GRAND JURY?
If you do so vote, the PGJ will investigate the alleged criminal activity that occurred during Terry’s arraignment and insure that Terry and ALL the People in Dixie County do receive Due Process of Law.

I can assume that your words intend to mean that Terry can only preform certain acts that are then acts performed by a jurist, and if any act, such as breathing, or such as eating a sandwich, or such as murdering innocent people by the dozen, are acts that are outside the brackets, or the set of actions, that are done by a jurists, in any case, by any individual, such as Terry: not acts done by a jurist such as Terry.

Exactly what I meant by He commits the crime as an individual not a jurist on the Grand Jury. 

Therefore the concept of immunity only applies to the set of actions done by Terry as a jurist, or any individual, not just Terry.

Thanks for the reply, and confirmation.

Thanks also for the flow of information in this case. These are the shots heard round the world, in my opinion, comparable to the shots that ended the lives of Vicki Weaver, the Kennedy men, Martin Luther King, Jr,, a number of buildings in Oklahoma City and New York, and those in Lexington and Concord.

Shooting words peacefully is much better than the alternatives.

 

He commits the crime as an individual not a jurist on the Grand Jury. 

 You are now starting to understand the weaknesses of the arguments, as Terry took these actions not as a foreman of the statutory grand jury, but rather as an individual, signing documents by what the judge called "a sham assembly of volunteers to act as a so called "common law grand jury" in the stead of the lawful Grand Jury of Dixie County".

Of course, Terry himself has argued that the Grand Jury was void ab initio, which serves to undermine his position that he was still a foreperson of said void grand jury.

The immunity defense is going to have to deal with some realities here.

 You are now starting to understand...SNIP

False claims of knowing my religious beliefs, false claims of agreement, false claims of understanding, added to other false claims is standard procedure as far as the current pile of evidence inculpates the falsifier.

The words were explained well enough between the author of the words and myself, as far as I am concerned, without relying upon a third party offering a false version of understanding.

Thanks but not thanks.

As to any missteps in procedure taken by the Grand Jury Foremen, or any Jurists on the Grand Jury, when the criminal was caught red handed tampering with the Jury, that has been understood by me too, not according to the one who falsely attributes "understanding" to me, without my consent, and despite relentless objection on my part, as the accused, if he thought he was innocent, and if he did his job, then the misstep, or more than one misstep, could have been managed well, instead of criminally, and the accusation could have moved to a jury trial, according to the common law, with the help of the accused, who happened to be accused of a crime while he was supposed to be helping due process, not preventing it, and in that jury trial the accused could have proven his innocence lawfully, instead of criminally adding one crime (jury tampering) to another crime, which can still be settled lawfully in a jury trial where the accused jury tampering State Prosecutor or State Attorney stands trial as the accused.

  

 

You are playing ring around the rosy, Native Born Citizen.  The comment was an answer to your accusation that Terry could go out and murder with his immunity on the Grand Jury.  

He commits the crime  of murder as an individual not a jurist on the Grand Jury.

Patricia,

The comment was mine, not Native Born Citizen, here:

The comment was an answer to your accusation that Terry could go out and murder with his immunity on the Grand Jury. 

That was my comment as I tried to remove any assumptions concerning the concept of immunity. As to the deceptive "playing ring around the rosy," being done willfully by someone, that is acknowledged by me too. Not, however, concerning that specific comment by me, offered for that reason to you, from me, not from Native Born Citizen.

I hope that less confusion is the result, including my own.

 

I hope that less confusion is the result, including my own.

Thanks Joe. And yes, your comment does raise a valid concern on your part that there are limitations to the immunity of a grand juror, and that, the statute in question limits it to official actions. Furthermore, the immunity does not extend to actions by the convening judge, or incidents which involve secrecy of proceedings.

In order for Terry to argue immunity, and I am not sure that Terry would be arguing such a position, he needs to show that he was doing these actions as part of his official duty which does not include the filing of presentments passed by a non statutory 'grand jury' which under Florida law is nothing more than, as the presiding judge observed

the convening of a sham assembly of volunteers to act as a so called "common law grand jury" in the stead of the lawful Grand Jury of Dixie County, Florida, resulting in the issuance of more than one simulated "true bill", signed by Terry Trussell as the "foreman" of that assembly, purporting to indict various individuals, public officials, corporations, and governmental bodies for a cornucopia of offenses (albeit such a document is truly "void ab initio"

Terry is facing an upward battle with such an argument, and I am not sure that Terry would pursue such an avenue, but then again I had not expected Terry to go 'sovcit' with the document he tried to introduce at his arraignment, with limited success, as we all know now.

In retrospect, Terry's failure is found, not in the fact that he pursued these presentments, but rather that he failed to properly pursue his disagreements with the prosecutor. I believe that if Terry had properly presented the issues to the Judge, the judge would have reminded both Terry and the prosecutor of their duties. Instead, Terry took it upon himself to take unilateral steps, which led to his removal as a foreperson of the Grand Jury. Such a removal is highly unusual, given the nature of the Grand Jury proceedings, and while one could have challenged it properly in Court, it may be too late now to pursue that avenue. And in fact, the issue of removal is irrelevant to the charges laid before the jury in the case of Terry.

You are playing ring around the rosy, Native Born Citizen.  The comment was an answer to your accusation that Terry could go out and murder with his immunity on the Grand Jury.  

I did not make such a statement, you are confusing me with Joe I believe. So we understand both that there are actions which are official and actions which are made as an individual. He himself had ruled the Grand Jury to be void from the beginning and therefor, arguing that he was acting in official capacity will be somewhat problematic. But even if he were to argue that the Grand Jury was not void, he cannot act as an individual outside of the statutory grand jury, which is, as the judge outlined, what he appears to have done.

For Terry to claim that he performed these actions as a 'jurist' needs a little bit more work.

Joe: That does not mean complete immunity for anyone who may perpetrate any crime anywhere anytime.

Exactly... You have quickly identified the logical fallacy and weakness in the arguments here.  If one looks at the immunity rule, one would quickly observe a small detail that appears to have been overlooked

Grand jurors are fully protected from actions against them by being an independent body answerable to no one except the court that empanels it.

Of course, the immunity only extends to their official actions and even those exclude immunity for specific instances, such as disclosure of witness testimony.

The communists, as N. [Kruchev] had prophesied; " we will bury you from within" - they have! They have infiltrated every facet of our once free society after decades of patience and we are now seeing the results of their veiled effort. Tyranny has replaced the rule of law and in my opinion it will require another 1776 in order to restore the freedom that we have lost. We had a good two hundred plus year run but now it's done and it will require the citizenry to right the nearly sunken ship. I was forced to fight communism halfway around the globe at the tender age of twenty-one and I'll be damned, and should be, if I won't fight it here in the motherland at the fading year of sixty-six! mInr, NSA!

Hear, Hear David,

BRAVO!

I am curious as to the method that you would pursue war against the government? It appears to me that with the laws that were passed after the 30's after organized crime used machine guns in their nefarious actions, the current laws do not allow us to own any automatic weapons or really cool jet airplanes with the associated weaponry so it would appear that the citizenry that would take that action would be at somewhat a disadvantage. The government also has those really cool listening devices that can find us via our telephones, listen to our conversations and via the appropriations bill that was signed a few years ago, can imprison us for any accusation of being a terrorist without giving us access to courts, lawyers, or judges. They can hold us incommunicado which will not bode well toward getting a message out as to our whereabouts, let alone action against the government. While such action would be patriotic, right and just, it would also be suicidal. When the enemy holds all the cards it is intelligent to gain some advantage in some manner prior to committing suicide with rash actions.

Now I sound like the people that were speaking prior to Patrick Henry saying ". . . as for me, give me liberty or give me death", but the weapons of the day were the same, the only difference was the amount of people that were on either side. 

Please tell me that I am wrong.
