Wrongful Use of Taser Lands County Sheriff's Sergeant in Prison

U.S. Dept. of Justice
Civil Rights Division
News Release
April 30, 2012

Former Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s sergeant, Althea Mallisham, 52, has been sentenced to 61 months in prison for civil rights convictions for wrongfully using a Taser against three detainees during separate incidents over a four month period in 2008.

On Nov. 16, 2011, Mallisham pleaded guilty to three felony civil rights offenses at which time she admitted that on separate occasions while she was on duty as a Tuscaloosa Sheriff's sergeant and acting under color of state law, she used an X26 Taser to electro-shock three pre-trial detainees as a means of punishment. In each instance, the pre-trial detainees were either restrained in handcuffs or securely locked in a jail cell.  None of the three detainees posed a physical threat to any officers or other detainees when they were electro-shocked.  In each instance, Mallisham willfully exceeded and abused her authority under state law.

“Law enforcement officers who abuse their power to maliciously subject those in their custody to extreme pain will be held accountable,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. “The Justice Department will continue to vigorously prosecute those who cross the line to engage in acts of criminal misconduct.”

Gary Revel, looks into RFK assassination

RED POLKA DOT DRESS-RFK Assassination Screenplay Research Gains Momentum with Nina Rhodes-Hughes CNN Interview

"What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right," Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN. "The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups."

Her statement that Sirhan was not the only gunman shooting at Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy confirms the many reports and investigative work by Gary Revel into the killing.

Frank Burmaster is researching and co-writing the screenplay now. He has completed 28 screenplays and has a zombie film in development. "Zombie Warriors", is to be filmed by StewArt Productions/Biblical Films. He also has a TV pilot in development, "Last Hope", with Stuart Sabin at It's a Living Productions. He just finished co-writing an action/thriller, "Sons of the Fallen", with producer Robert Hammond, and is currently co-writing two thrillers, "Thorn", and "Thorn 2" with producer Pamala Hall. He is also due to begin work on another TV Pilot, "The Discovery Process".

Revel is the owner of the Jongleur group of companies that includes Jongleur Music, Jongleur Music Book Publishing and Jongleur Music Pictures. Jongleur Music is also partnered with Robert McDaris in the Riant Records label. The companies produce and distribute music, publish books and have over 20 motion pictures in development. He is the creator of the 'Dream Killers' project that is working to bring 3 major motion pictures to theaters around the world that will finally provide the truth of the assassinations of JFK, MLK and RFK in 3 entertaining and inspirational motion pictures. The movies will be based primarily on the facts that Gary found during his investigation of the assassinations that began when he entered into the MLK assassination enquiry of the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1977. He will bring new understanding to the historical perspective of the events due to his exclusive and independent work and findings in 1977.

Revel recently finished the screenplays; JFK: The Real Story, written by Revel and co-writers Robert Burnside and Ambyr Davis as well as Golf Gods, adapted from the book by David Green and written by Revel and David. His story of his investigation of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. is optioned by William Sachs and the screenplay, MLK - written by Sachs - is the subject of negotiations with producers in Hollywood.

Al Navis has joined with Gary and Frank to help provide an extra indepth view as the ‘Consulting Historian’ to the endeavor. Navis has been lecturing on the JFK assassination since 1974. He is a writer, radio personality, book store owner and expert on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Leutrell (Mike) Osborne Sr. has made himself available to the writers and researchers for the screenplay as a 'Technical Consultant'. He will offer advice and perspective on the United States Government’s Central Intelligence (CIA). His book, 'Black Man in the CIA', has recently been published by Jongleur Music Book Publishing.

Leutrell knew the CIA's David Morales and Ted Shackley among many other famous and practically unknown CIA employees. He was a CIA Case Officer who had as many as 12 agents working for him at times. He will advise on matters related to the CIA's 'Domestic and Foreign Counterintelligence' practices during the late 1960s.

Former Employees Settle Race Discrimination and Retaliation Lawsuit in Arkansas


Little Rock Real Estate Company Settles EEOC Race Discrimination and Retaliation Suit

Bankers Asset Management Will Pay $600,000 for Excluding Blacks for Jobs and Punishing Employees for Complaining About Bias

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Bankers Asset Management, Inc., a real estate company in Little Rock, will pay $600,000 to former employees and a class of applicants to settle a race discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEOC), the agency announced today.
The EEOC’s suit, Civil Action No. 4:10-CV-002070-SWW, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, Western Division, alleged that the company excluded black applicants for jobs at the company’s Little Rock location based upon their race.  The EEOC also alleged that the company retaliated against other employees and former employees for opposing or testifying about the race discrimination, by demoting and forcing one out of her job and by suing others in state court.  The EEOC attempted to resolve this matter during conciliation prior to filing suit.
Race discrimination and retaliation violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In addition to injunctive and monetary relief, the three-year consent decree settling the lawsuit requires that BAM:
  • provide mandatory annual three-hour training on race discrimination and retaliation under Title VII to all of its employees;
  • have its president or another officer appear at the training to inform staff of the company’s non-discrimination policy regarding race and retaliation; that the company will not tolerate such discrimination; and the consequences for discriminating in the workplace;
  • maintain records of complaints of race and retaliation discrimination;
  • provide annual reports to the EEOC regarding such complaints;
  • issue a memo to one of the hiring officials explaining that BAM does not discriminate on the basis of race and retaliation; and
  • post a notice to employees about the lawsuit that provides the EEOC’s contact information.
“Excluding qualified individuals from job opportunities because of their race or in retaliation for exercising protected rights are fundamental violations of the laws we enforce,” said EEOC General Counsel David Lopez.  “As this case demonstrates, the EEOC is prepared to vigorously pursue such cases and resolutions that help ensure that workplaces will be free from discrimination.  Recent cases we have filed alleging hiring discrimination, such as our suit against Bass Pro, demonstrate this continued commitment.”
“We are pleased that this company worked with us to reach a satisfactory resolution in this matter to ensure black applicants will be judged based on their qualifications,” said Faye A. Williams, regional attorney for the EEOC’s Memphis District Office.  “The measures in the decree will work to ensure that African-American applicants are treated in the same manner as others, and that employees who have the courage to oppose race discrimination are protected against retaliation.”
BAM is an Arkansas corporation engaged in real estate, real estate-owned properties, broker management and asset management in the Little Rock area.
The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination.  Further information about the EEOC is available on its website at

BLACK MAN IN THE CIA Finds Atrocities in LAPD Handling of RFK Assassination Case

Entertainment News

Robert F. Kennedy; assassinated presidential candidate, focus of new film

It was in 2006 that Leutrell Osborne Sr. first ran across a press release about the MLK assassination by Gary Revel on the internet. The more he read the more irritated he became that Gary was blaming everybody it seemed; Mafia, FBI, CIA, even the Memphis Police and Fire Department Director for having some involvement in the killing. He made a mental note that it was just another wacky 'conspiracy theory' and went on with his life.

Days later he happened to be talking with an old friend, Congressman Walter Fauntroy, and heard some of the same types of conclusions. The curtain he had drawn in his mind against the ideas was pulled back. He went back to the internet and googled, 'Gary Revel'. There was more than enough to keep him busy for a few days. He studied the statements and conclusions. After a few days he realized that they were not the tyical 'conspiray theory' offerings. Rather they were facts drawn from real evidence Revel had found during his own MLK assassination investigation in 1977 as he had worked independently but in association with the House Select Committee on Assassinations.

He contacted Gary and offered to help him further the quest to find and expose all the facts of the case so that the world would finally know what Gary knew. The world would finally know the truth that James Earl Ray did not kill MLK.

Gary accepted his offer and days turned into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. One lead led to another and Leutrell began to see the link between the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This had been another 'wacky idea' from Gary, at first. However, it became clear that it was true, there is a connection. Then RFK? No, Leutrell did not want to go there. Sirhan Sirhan was still alive and in prison for the crime, surely the State of California would not be so bold to continue holding an innocent man for such an infamous crime.

Gary offered evidence again and Leutrell was shocked.  The atrocities by the LAPD in the investigation of the assassination of Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy were blatant; destruction of evidence, bullying witnesses into changing their statements and not following up on vital leads were not the marks of any true investigation into any crime.

When Leutrell learned that Gary and Frank Burmaster had started writing a screenplay about the assassination he offered his help again. JFK Assassination Expert Al Navis is attached as 'Consulting Historian'. Leutrell attached as a 'Research Technical Consultant' for the screenplay. Leutrell knows he can help due to his extensive knowledge of Counterintelligence, Black Operations, COINTEL PRO (the FBI's Counter Intelligence Program), Covert Action and other relative matters that now clearly relate to the crime. The atrocities of the assassination and the following corrupted investigation must be brought to the world even it takes a motion picture to finally spell it all out.

Leutrell M. Osborne Sr. is the author of 'Black Man in the CIA'. He is a 26 year career Case Officer for the Central Intelligence Agency and is a 'Research Technical Consultant' for the screenplay being written by Frank Burmaster and Gary Revel, working title, 'Red Polka Dot Dress'.

Gary Revel is a Special Investigator of the assassination of Martin Luther King JR. whose work on that case led him to find links to those responsible for the assassinations of JFK, MLK and RFK.

Frank Burmaster has written 28 screenplays and has a zombie film in development. "Zombie Warriors", is to be filmed by StewArt Productions/Biblical Films. He also has a TV pilot in development, "Last Hope", with Stuart Sabin at It's a Living Productions. He just finished co-writing an action/thriller, "Sons of the Fallen", with producer Robert Hammond, and is currently co-writing two thrillers, "Thorn", and "Thorn 2" with producer Pamala Hall. He is also due to begin work on another TV Pilot, "The Discovery Process".

Al Navis is a writer, radio personality, book store owner and expert on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Robert F. Kennedy Assassination Film On The Way

Polka Dots and the Assassination of Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy

Entertainment News

To Be Released: April 16, 2012
Temple, TX USA
Gary Revel, email;

Special Investigator Gary Revel reflects on the polka dots and the RFK assassination as he pursues making a movie to expose the deadly killers behind the killing.

Gary Revel

(Temple, Texas) -- The year was 1977 and by the time three people (an associate, a brother and the husband of a cousin-with whom I had at least some discussion of my work investigating the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination were murdered) I was starting to make connections beyond MLK. Links began to surface that led to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the Civil Rights Leader.

It was after the attacks on me and my family became too great to bear that I decided to end my investigation. This was in the early part of 1978 and I was living in Nashville, Tennessee where I had based my investigation of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

A few months after making this decision I was sitting in the law office of my business associate, James Earl Ray attorney Jack Kershaw. I got a phone call from someone who said he was a friend of a woman who knew something about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and thought it had something to do with his brother‘s assassination as well (JFK). I told the caller that I was no longer investigating the King killing and wasn’t interested in pursuing neither Robert’s assassination nor JFK’s.

The caller was not relieved by this and continued to explain that his friend had seen a lady in a polka dot dress run from the Ambassador Hotel with a male friend saying that they had killed Kennedy.

I really didn’t want to hear this. My faith in any kind of real justice in the United States had been completely destroyed by my experiences of the past year. However, just as I had been compelled to delve into the underbelly of the MLK and JFK assassinations, I again felt the grip of hunger for justice.

I continued to listen and asked a few questions and once off the phone began to make some calls myself.
I learned that there had been several people who had seen a lady in a polka dot dress in and around the Ambassador Hotel that night. More than one had seen her in the company of Sirhan Sirhan.

One turned out to be the woman my caller had told me about, Sandra Serrano. She had been sitting on the steps that led down from the Ambassador Hotel Ballroom where RFK had just made his victory speech when the polka dot dress lady ran past her claiming, ‘We shot Kennedy’.

Another was a policeman, Sergeant Paul Sharaga, who saw the polka dot dress lady shortly after in the parking lot saying the same thing.

A third was Vincent DiPierro. He was working as a waiter in the hotel and saw the polka dot dress lady with Sirhan. She and Sirhan seemed quite cozy and was the recipient of a whisper from Sirhan. According to Vincent, soon after, Sirhan saw Robert Kennedy coming into the hallway and quickly moved forward taking a pistol out and began shooting.

I learned that more shots were fired than would have been possible if they had all come from Sirhan’s pistol. Then I learned of the destruction of evidence by the LAPD and other details that were very disturbing.

This kind of knowledge has come to me steadily, layer after layer, building a firm foundation and structure of truth about the assassination of RFK that isn’t found in the official court records that have kept Sirhan Sirhan in prison for 44 years.

It is because of this and other factors that I must go forward and make every effort to make a movie that will provide a perspective of truth, as I see it, beyond what is found in the official history of the killing of Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy.

So I have entered into an agreement with Frank Burmaster to co-write a screenplay about the assassination. We have accepted offers from JFK Assassination Expert, Al Navis and former CIA Case Officer, Leutrell (Mike) Osborne Sr. (author of Black Man in the CIA) to consult on research for the screenplay.

This is not an undertaking taken lightly I assure you. The pain and suffering that these matters have caused me over the years is more than enough for a lifetime, still I am compelled to continue.

The indictment charges the men with committing a hate crime in violation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which expanded federal jurisdiction to include certain assaults motivated by someone’s sexual orientation.  This case marks the first federal hate crime charging a violation of the sexual orientation provision of the statute.

The indictment alleges that on April 4, 2011, the two defendants kidnapped and assaulted Kevin Pennington because of Pennington’s sexual orientation. According to the indictment, the defendants enlisted two women to trick Pennington into getting into a truck with the defendants, so that the defendants could drive Pennington to a state park and assault him.

Boss Calls Employee the N-word; Another person fired for complaining

Bias cases are hitting in record numbers at EEOC. Here is one out of Michigan --

Mark Louks was angered when his boss at Noble Metal Processing in Warren, Michigan used the N-word to refer to a black co-worker.
Louks, who is white, complained: to his boss, to his union and to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission., and got fired.
"I was brought up to believe that everybody should be treated equally," said Louks, 54, of Eastpointe, telling his story to a reporter for the Detroit Free Press.
Louks is among a growing number of U.S. workers to turn to the EEOC to combat job discrimination. The agency received a record 99,947 complaints last year -- a 20.7% increase since 2007. It also obtained $513.6 million in compensation and other benefits for workers.
In 2008, the EEOC sued Noble in federal court, accusing it of repeatedly denying promotional opportunities to nonwhites and of retaliating against Louks.
The company denied the charges, but settled out of court in 2010, paying $190,000 to Louks and several minority workers.
The EEOC would have required the firm to launch an anti-discrimination training program, but it went out of business. Its lawyer wouldn't comment, writes David Ashenfelter for the Detroit Free Press.
Louks told Ashenfelter he has struggled since the firing to find steady work, but has no regrets: "Somebody had to stand up."
