So the Department of Justice is coming to Worcester to fix our racial problems, because as you know Worcester is the most racist city in America. And of course the Justice Department has a spotless record of decreasing racial tensions. They did a real bang up job in Ferguson after all.
Well one of the reasons they’re coming here is because of police officer Michael Motyka’s arrest and subsequent paid suspension from the Worcester Police Department for allegedly beating a handcuffed prisoner named Gerald Jones. The hippies are very upset that the tape of the beating is not going to be released by the Attorney General’s office. Because apparently they don’t understand how law and order works.
Quick refresher hippies. If they release the tape and everyone sees it, it’s going to be nearly impossible to find a jury that isn’t tainted.
It’s like when all the conspiracy theorist assholes said that the Tsarnaevs didn’t blow up the Boston Marathon because they hadn’t seen the tape yet. Hey numbnuts, if they release the tape then everyone sees it and you can’t possibly pool a jury together in Boston for the trial. Instead they followed procedure, rounded up a jury, released the tapes, and Boom – guilty.
As for Gerald Jones, who is this guy? Because I’m having a hard time believing that a police officer would senselessly beat a handcuffed prisoner just because it makes him feel good. The media has basically told us NOTHING about Gerald Jones.
Luckily for Turtleboy Nation our legal department has been hard at work putting together a profile on this guy. They’ve discovered that he is basically a sue-happy criminal who can’t stay out of jail but is NEVER in the wrong. He’s sued countless people, businesses, organizations, and municipalities, despite never winning a single case. I’m not saying I don’t believe he was beaten by officer Motyka, but I am saying that I can surmise that this guy is a professional nudnik and he’s being represented by a lawyer (Hector Pineiro) who harbored a convicted felon in his house for years. The same lawyer who sues the police like it’s going out of business.
First let’s look at the courthouse records from July 22, 2011:
Who hasn’t been sentenced to 62 days in the House of Correction for intimidating a witness. Happens to legitimate, law-abiding citizens all the time.
Then there was the time he got arrested selling crack cocaine in Boston in 2013 and sued the Boston Police and Commissioner Ed Davis for being racist:
Mr. Jones in an African American citizen residing at 1050 Main Street, Worcester, Massachusetts. Compl. ¶ 2. Although the Complaint outlines a litany of violations perpetrated by the Boston Police Department (“BPD”), of which several did not directly involve Mr. Jones, the gravamen of the allegations against Defendants is that the BPD maintains an active policy of discrimination by targeting minorities for various offenses relating to the possession and distribution of crack cocaine while taking disproportionately lenient action against Caucasian citizens for the same or similar offenses. Compl. ¶¶ 6-12. Mr. Jones further alleges that this practice has been in place since 2008 and supports this assertion by noting that he was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine on or about January 15, 2009
So let me get this straight. The Boston Police Department is racist against African-Americans because they arrest African-Americans caught in the act of selling crack cocaine? And his proof of said racism is that he got arrested selling crack cocaine in 2009? Sounds legit.
If you want some more details here’s the rundown of his complaint:
Here’s a quick summary of Gerald Jones’ beef with the BPD.
- The BPD let’s white people buy and sell crack cocaine freely, but arrests black people who do the same.
- The police have arrested him so many times, not because he is breaking the law, but because he is black.
- As a result of this he lost his appetite, he can’t sleep because everyone thinks he’s a snitch now, and thus the BPD has inflicted severe emotional, physical, and psychological suffering against him.
- The BPD was selling crack cocaine to white people.
- He is suing for $1.45 million.
- He lost.
Then there was the time he was arrested for stealing a car in 1997 and ended up suing his own lawyer who he had fired before the trial began. This one is pretty hilarious:
The respondent (lawyer), John J. Guinane, is a sole practitioner whose practice is primarily devoted to criminal defense work through the Bar Advocate program. In 1997 he was appointed successor counsel for one Gerald Jones, who was charged with receiving a stolen vehicle. Police had followed the stolen vehicle and arrested Jones and two others when the passengers abandoned the vehicle and ran. Counsel for one of the codefendants advised the respondent that prosecutors had offered six-month jail terms to the other defendants but were insisting on two and a half years for Jones because of his lengthy criminal record. Jones insisted he would accept no sentence greater than straight probation.
The policeman who filed the incident report on the arrests specifically stated that he had seen Jones driving the car and recognized him “from past dealings with him”—to wit, Jones’ prior tenure in the Suffolk House of Correction. In meetings with the respondent, Jones neither admitted nor denied having been in the car, and the respondent never asked him if he had been. The respondent told Jones that he had good basis for a motion to suppress evidence obtained from the arrest on the ground that there was no legitimate reason to follow the car. This motion was probably the defendant’s best option to avoid conviction.
Such a motion created a dilemma. Jones probably had no standing to bring the motion unless he was in the vehicle when it was stopped. He would therefore have to file a supporting affidavit in which he admitted being in the vehicle. While such an admission could not be entered in evidence against him, it could be used to cross-examine him if he were to take the stand and testify. See Commonwealth v. Rivera, 425 Mass. 633 (1997). As a consequence, the filing of an affidavit would make it extremely imprudent to take the stand at trial. The respondent did not believe the dilemma carried much force here because he did not anticipate putting his client on the stand, given his extensive criminal record, and because the arresting officer and the codefendants placed Jones in the car, a fact Jones never denied.
Then, just before trial commenced, Jones fired the respondent and elected to act as his own counsel. At the court’s request, the respondent acted as standby counsel. To his surprise, Jones took the stand and testified that he had not been in the car when it was stopped. At the time this did not seem significant to the respondent because, despite the respondent’s advice to the contrary, Jones had already asked questions of the police officer that permitted him to explain that he knew Jones from his prior incarceration. As it happened, the affidavit was not used to cross-examine Jones.
Jones was convicted and sentenced to two and a half years’ imprisonment. After the conviction was affirmed on appeal (the issue of the affidavit did not arise), Jones brought a malpractice action against the respondent. It was dismissed. Jones then sought issuance of a criminal complaint against the respondent for forgery. His request was denied.
Let me sum that up for you in the every-man vernacular:
- Gerald Jones was caught driving in a stolen car with two other dudes, and they were gonna get 6-month sentence while he was gonna get 2.5 years in jail because of his lengthy record.
- Gerald Jones said, “fuck that, I’m not going to jail” and brought his case to trial because he refused to settle for anything but probation.
- The cop who arrested him was a former corrections officer who knew him from prison. He was able to positively ID Gerald Jones as the driver because of this past relationship.
- Jones’ lawyer said that his best defense would be to argue that the cops had no reason to follow the car in the first place and thus all the evidence would have to be thrown out.
- If he filed an affidavit saying the cops had no reason to follow him he’d have to take the stand in court and admit to being in the car in the first place.
- His lawyer thought he might as well file the affidavit because he wasn’t gonna have to take the stand in his own trial anyway, plus everyone knew he was in the car because his codefendants gave him up and the arresting officer identified him.
- Gerald Jones then fired his attorney and represented himself at trial because admitting he was in the car would mean he’s going to jail – something he could not accept.
- Because Gerald Jones isn’t a lawyer, he has no fucking clue what he’s doing, embarrassed himself at trial, and ended up being found guilty and received the maximum punishment.
- Gerald Jones then sued the lawyer, who he had previously fired and disregarded the really good advice of, and lost in court.
Gerald Jones is also a regular down at the soup kitchen on Temple Street by St. John’s Church. Because he’s such a rowdy dooshnozzle in there he’s been banned, just as he has from several other soup kitchens. Logically his next move was to claim that Father Madden, the priest at St. John’s (and one of the cooler priests you will ever meet) called him the “N” word. He used this as a basis to once again unsuccessfully sue William Reilly, the guy who runs that particular soup kitchen.
Then there was the time he sued CVS. Ya got that? You can sue CVS if you want. Why? Because the honkies behind the counter wouldn’t give him pills because he was black:
Just like the rest of his lawsuits, it was dismissed on account of being really, really stupid. Here’s a complete list of all the lawsuits he’s filed against various people in court over the years. He’s never won a single case. Now you might be asking yourself – how does he pay for all this? Court is expensive. Well, you’re forgetting that we live in Massachusetts, a place where dooshnozzles get everything they want for free.
For instance, in 2001, while a prisoner, he sued Middlesex County Sherriff James DePaolo because he wanted to get out of prison early. The problem was he had no money. So he filed a motion to waive the filing fee, and he was granted it:
This is what we’re dealing with folks. When I first heard that a Worcester cop was arrested for beating the shit out of a guy in handcuffs, my first thought was – this idiot just gave the hippies a reason to protest. After all, it takes a lot for the police to arrest their own. And obviously lines were crossed in this situation.
But as usual, the hippies have hitched their wagon to a professional asshole, and this is why we can’t take them seriously. Did Michael Brown deserve to die? I’m not sure anyone DESERVES to die. Was he responsible for creating the conditions that led to his death? Absolutely. Was he generally an asshole? Of course he was.
The same goes with Gerald Jones. This is a bad, bad dude. A guy who has been in and out of prison his whole life. A professional criminal who always plays the victim. Any reasonable person has to now look at this whole fiasco and assume that he was partly responsible for getting the shit kicked out of him. I don’t know what he did, but if his past history speaks to his character, he probably deserved it.
