“Special Appeal on behalf of the little Ash campaign
Happy New Year all
I am John White, the lead admin of Aslan’s Army, and campaign admin for the Little Ash Campaign. Some of you will have heard of Little Ash before, some will not: Our message today, is that time is now running short, and Little Ash needs your help. The window of opportunity to get her kids back is closing, and its essential the fundraiser succeeds so the case can get into high court. The deadline approaches, January 17th, and more still needs to be done. I have been supporting little Ash over the last three months. During that time, many people, including many members of Aslan’s Army, have donated to help Little Ash win through two rounds of legal battles against two local authorities. Both times have been incredible triumphs, and the points of legal principle are clear, if the case can be brought to High Court, we can have a very high confidence justice can be done. Little Ash’s Barrister is a powerhouse who is dedicated to this cause and takes no prisoners! Little Ash has suffered through so much, to have her children literally defrauded out of her, to face a system that has betrayed her and worked against her while making 1000’s of pounds from her misery. Yet she has never given up, never stopped fighting for what is right, even with the full weight of the system doing its best to crush her. Her courage, her will, and her strength to just keep going no matter how hard it is, are an inspiration. It is my honour to do all I can to help her, to give this crusade for justice a chance. And yet, all of us are human. The stress of the campaign, including the strain of being caught up in controversies that had nothing to do with her, have taken a toll. And right now, Little Ash is poorly, and unable to make livestreams on her own behalf. Therefore, it falls to me to say: please help her! Never was a cause more deserving, nor better positioned to win a fantastic victory, one that can not just make a difference to Ash and her little ones, but to the hundreds, if not thousands, of other women suffering predation out there from a family court system gone rotten. This scandal MUST be exposed to the nation for there to be political action to stamp this corruption out, help Little Ash now, help many more in the future. We can all have opinions and spectate drama on the internet as entertainment. But sometimes, it really matters. Sometimes its about more than opening one’s mouth: its about putting money where your mouth is. So, donate to Little Ash’s Campaign today. Help get this case into High Court, help finish this, help make all that she has suffered worthwhile, help the suffering of countless other mothers out there. The fundraiser link is included in the description with this message, along with the link to the Little Ash Campaign Facebook Page. Every bit of help you give matters, time is pressing now, we can but ask: And NOW is the time: that’s why we’re asking. Let us unite together with this one aim, to give Little Ash this last chance she deserves. There are just over two weeks left to do it in. Make or break. Triumph or Tragedy. The choice is yours.
Thank-you for your kind consideration. John White, Out.”
A 31-year-old man fatally shot by police during a botched cannabis raid in Coventry has been named as ex-soldier Sean Fitzgerald.
During the First World War, a US senator famously said, “The first casualty, when war comes, is the truth.” So it appears in the case of the Coventry drugs raid on Friday night. Here is what is known:
A warrant to raid the property at 6.20 pm on Friday night. The police called it part of an ‘intelligence-led operation’, which considering intelligence is a scarce enough thing in your average police force, suggests they had a tip-off.
The police obviously had some sort of inkling that a cannabis grow on the property would be heavily defended as armed police were on the scene, climbing ladders to enter the windows as well as front and rear doors simultaneously.
Within a minute or so of the doors and windows going in, several shots were heard by locals. It was confirmed that no policeman was harmed but 31-year-old Sean Fitzgerald was fatally wounded. An ambulance turned up very quickly and emergency medicine was administered on the scene but he was declared dead.
At the same time, two other men were arrested.
The Guardian: unarmed and shot in the back?
Sean Fitzgerald, the unarmed ex-soldier shot dead by British police for growing cannabis.
You can imagine there has been a bit of a media frenzy over this as people don’t get shot by police too often in the UK. Amongst the babble, the Guardian newspaper raised two queries that the police are trying hard to refute.
The paper reported, “At about 1 pm on Saturday, police said they could not confirm whether a gun was found at the scene because the police watchdog was investigating. Later, however, West Midlands Police confirmed they were yet to find a firearm, adding that a search was ongoing.”
This confirms claims by one of Fitzgerald’s friends that he was shot while trying to escape. The police are also trying hard to refute the claims that he was shot in the back: “Asked about the claims, assistant chief constable Sue Southern said: “From the information, I have at this point, that is not my understanding … body-worn video has been examined and there will be a full forensic postmortem”.
Some insight into the IOPC
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) will now investigate.
Having had a family member killed by the police a couple of years ago, I will now hold my hands up and say that I’m not too fond of the police and take the view that they shouldn’t be allowed much more than a truncheon let alone a machine gun. The IOPC was brought into being during the investigation of my brother in law’s death and is said to be even more pro-police than the IPCC that it replaced.
Investigations can take 12-18 months. This will significantly delay justice for Fitzgerald’s family and the community he belonged to. Only then may we see a chance of criminal proceedings against the officer – criminal investigations against armed police are rare as hen’s teeth and it is unlikely that justice will be served.
A word on cannabis
My final thought on the matter is that it is very rare that you need seven armed cops to tackle a bunch of weed growing hippies. A terraced house in Coventry with maybe 50 or so plants isn’t exactly a warehouse full – this suggests extreme heavy-handedness on the part of the local plod.
Was the armed raid instituted because Fitzgerald was ex-Army? Most ex-soldiers are glad to leave weapons alone after leaving the Forces, as they more than anyone know what harm a gun can do to people.
These facts put together suggest a police force, hamstrung by tight budgets due to a government that couldn’t give a cuss for public safety, desperate for a quick win to tell the public that they are on top of the war on drugs. Crackhouses are far more dangerous for the community than a bunch of hippies growing weed, so I’m honestly baffled that the same heavy-handedness wasn’t applied to one of the dozens of such establishments in northern Coventry instead. Or is this a new tactic on the police’s part – sending in the armed mob to send lead flying in the UK war on drugs? Well, nothing else has worked to date.

A man who shouted abuse at judges with a megaphone outside the Royal Courts of Justice (RCJ) and sent them harassing emails has been jailed for a year.
Eze Kinsley Ezeugo was found to have repeatedly breached an order that prohibited him from harassing three judges, whom he claimed had conspired against him.
He was sentenced for contempt of court on the application of the judges, before whom he had previously appeared: High Court judge Sir David Foskett, Circuit Judge Emma Peters and Deputy District Judge Suki Waschkuhn.
Her Honour Judge Peters had jailed him in 2014 for 30 months after being convicted in the Crown Court of five counts for offences contrary to the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. Mr Justice Foskett has made various decisions involving Mr Ezeugo.
According to a Lawtel report of the decision of Sir Peter Openshaw in the High Court shortly before Christmas, Mr Ezeugo had appeared before the deputy district judge whilst representing his wife in a claim brought against her.
Mr Ezeugo began a campaign of harassment that included “posting vituperative comments on Facebook and Twitter, sending abusive emails about the applicants to various individuals [and] attending the RCJ with a megaphone shouting abuse”, aimed particularly at Foskett J.
The campaign continued and the three judges began proceedings. In May 2017, a court granted an interim injunction and made various case management directions with which Mr Ezeugo did not comply.
Five months later, judgment was entered in default of acknowledgment of service and summary judgment were entered for the judges, and the injunction was confirmed.
The terms of the order prevented him from uploading further abuse on Facebook and Twitter, and from attending the RCJ unless he was a party to listed proceedings and had given notice to security staff in advance of his intention to attend.
His appeal against the order was held to be totally without merit.
The judges alleged that Mr Ezeugo had breached the order by committing 178 acts of contempt by his posts on Facebook and Twitter, sending emails and by attending the RCJ without giving notice.
Lawtel reported: “The respondent contended that he was not guilty of breaching the order because it had not been lawfully made. He alleged that the instant hearing was a result of a conspiracy against him designed to separate him from his wife and children.
“He made many allegations about other cases which he claimed had been driven by conspiracy.”
The court was not satisfied that the breaches in relation to attendance at the RCJ had been made out to the criminal standard.
But in relation to the social media posts and emails, amounting to 175 acts of contempt, “there was no doubt on the evidence that he had sent them and had done so because he maintained that what he was alleging was true, and that as the order was unlawful he should not be bound by it”.
However, the judge said the order was lawful and Mr Ezeugo was in contempt.
The report said: “His actions were calculated to cause considerable alarm and distress. The breaches had continued despite repeated warnings by the Government Legal Department about the prospect of committal proceedings if his conduct continued.
“The respondent had shown complete disregard for the order and he had shown no remorse. The scale of the breaches had not diminished and there had been a recent escalation. There was no doubt that he would continue with that course of conduct.
“Although judges should be able to accept reasonable criticism, there were limits. The respondent’s conduct damaged respect for the law and judges and damaged the rule of law.”
Mr Ezeugo “had become obsessed as he had an irrational sense of injustice”, and the breaches would continue, meaning imprisonment was “inevitable”.
His Twitter account has been suspended, while cases on Bailii indicate that other judges have had problems with him.
In 2010, there is a case which detailed how he was excluded from a hearing in the magistrates’ court, despite being the defendant in a criminal matter, because of his behaviour in the courtroom.
A father from Royston launched a protest against forced adoption outside Barnsley Town Hall on Christmas day to raise awareness around the impact of forced adoption and the policies the UK uses to implement the practice. John Aveyard lost his four children to the care system. The siblings were then split up and forcibly adopted.
Forced adoption, or non-consensual adoption as it is sometimes called, allows the government to remove children from families where there is a risk of harm, without getting parental consent. The practice is used in a small minority of countries around the world, with consensual adoption being the preferred approach for the majority of countries.
As part of the demonstration, John put a table up outside the town hall and placed four candles on it, one for each of his children as a reminder that they would not be sitting with him at the table on…
Universal Credit dad-of-three tried to kill himself while on phone to DWP
Dean Lovell-Payne, 52, took a massive overdose in September 2018 after having to endure almost three months without receiving any benefits at all

A dad driven to despair by Universal Credit tried to kill himself while on the phone to the DWP after he was denied payment for 10 weeks.
Dean Lovell-Payne, 52, who was incapacitated by a fall this summer, took a massive overdose in September 2018 after having to endure almost three months without receiving any benefits at all.
Now Dean, his partner Paula and their three children Andrew, 30, Lou, 17, and Phoebe, 15, have been forced to move into a house in woods on the outskirts of Bournemouth which is only accessible by a dirt track, meaning wheelchair-bound Dean is effectively housebound.
Despite pleading with the Universal Credit helpline, after the 10-week payment delay Dean said he felt he had no option but to take his own life during the call as he thought his life insurance would pay out more quickly.
He received his benefits the same day after police are believed to have alerted the DWP to the incident and a spokesman for the DWP said they ‘sympathised with the distress he felt’.

In 1996 Dr. Leonard Horowitz wrote a book called “Emerging Viruses: AIDs & Ebola: Nature, Accident or Intentional?”
Dr. Horowitz’s information really started getting out there in 2004.
At the same time, in 2004, The COINTELPRO agent provacateur A. True Ott created an online store called MeMinerals.com
When researching wayback internet archives of MeMinerals.com, the same store IP address, was previously used by an affiliate (spy) of Dr Joel’s Wallach’s Mineral site, “DeadDoctorsDon’tLie.” We suspect this was for the COINTELPRO agent True Ott to spy on Wallach as an affiliate, to gather intelligence on minerals to create his own Mineral site.
In 2008, Dr Jeremiah Wright came out and said God Damn America For Creating the AIDS virus and credited this knowledge to Horowitz’s Emerging Viruses book.
This gave Dr. Horowitz’s research a louder voice.
A year later in 2009, a website was created by the CONTELPRO (TRUE OTT via Ted Gunderson) called Labvirus.com to disparage Dr. Horowitz and his research on lab created virus. The site was run by an Alex McGowin Studer who was a Hollywood editor found to be protecting pedophiles, and living on a property owned by Hollywood producer accused of pedophilia named Gary Goddard.
This same year, Alex Jones reneged on an ad contract for OxySilver he had with Dr. Horowitz and both he and Coast to Coast decided not to interview Dr. Horowitz any longer.
It was found that Jones had stolen Dr. Horowitz’s intellectual property replacing OxySilver with 528hz with SilverSol that uses a bad cancer causing frequency. http://SilverSolfraud.com
Dr. Horowitz and started defaming Dr. Horowitz along with True Ott in ant-semitic attacks. I researched all the connections and they all lead to Ted Gunderson who started COINTELPRO under J. Edgar Hoover.
Also the same year in 2009, a drug trafficking lawyer, Paul J. Sulla, Jr, who launders drug money through stolen real estate and acquires the real estate by forging documents showed up to steal Dr. Leonard Horowitz and Sherri Kane’s home. Later it was revealed that Sulla and Ott were working together in a legal filing by Sulla.
Also in Ted Gunderson’s cell was Debra Tevares and Anthony J. Hilder who made a fake sex tape using internet images of Sherri Kane & Dr. Leonard Horowitz. Tevares impersonated Sherri Kane as a voiceover.
At the same time Sherri Kane & Dr. Leonard Horowitz would receive death threats that we shut up or this tape would be released. It was sent to Dr. Horowitz’s children and his ex-wife who was being brainwashed them.
This fake sex tape plot was exposed in this video which lead Hilder to have a stroke: http://revolutiontelevision.net/…/sex-tape-scandal-exposes…/
The threats increased and so did the defamation. They even spread lies claiming that Dr. Horowitz was a Knight of Malta and crazy thing is most of the accusers were masons.
In 2010, two land caretakers of Horowitz and Kane stayed at Sherri’s apartment during Christmas, where under the direction of True Ott, they drugged Sherri and filmed her in her half naked arguing with Len on the phone about Sherri not wanting any boars shot on the land. The two women took the video and gave it to Len’s ex-wife who gave it to True Ott and Studer who edited it with subtitles and physical alterations to Sherri’s appearance MKULTRA style to defame them. They continued to gang stalk Sherri and Len with these videos and It took 3 years to take the 300 videos (different versions) off of YouTube.
After that in 2012, a full length feature version (where they added Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut segments) was created that included friends of Sherri and Len such as Michael Vara, and was promoted by a Lee Bracker who had mental issues and was being manipulated by a psychologist also working with the True Ott’s cell, Michael Nuccitelli, who was brainwashing Bracker into becoming a manchurian Candidate and go to Hawaii to kill Len & Sherri. Lee Bracker eventually stopped the attacks when he died in his sleep in Arizona 3 years later.
In 2011, Dr. Horowitz and Sherri walked into a lion’s den to face their accusers by speaking at a Conspiracy Conference where they were thrown out for revealing this truth, after being told by the conference producer that they could do do this. It turned out that the conference producer Brian Hall, was a Knight of Malta. He is some video footage from their talk. Around this time, Ted Gunderson died going to his grave knowing that he had been exposed.
In 2016, Paul J. Sulla, Jr managed to steal Dr. Horowitz and Sherri when they got no trial.
Fast Forward to today. LabVirus.com is for sale for 10k, since there is no longer a need to discredit Dr. Horowitz since they have us tied up in court trying to get their stolen home back from Sulla which diverts us away from doing more activism, and lead to Dr. Horowitz having to file for bankruptcy to try to get his home back but still no success.

An internal police investigation into the testimony given by three cops in relation to the death of Kingsley Burrell has proven gross misconduct charges against one officer. The testimony concerned was given at the 2015 inquest into Kingsley’s death.
Paul Adley has been dismissed after it was found he had given a false account of the events surrounding Kingsley’s death. Now he should be tried in a criminal court.
The hearings were held to investigate whether officers had breached standards for the use of force or honesty and integrity. All three were cleared of allegations concerning their use of force.
Kingsley died on 31 March 2011. He was restrained by police at a mental health unit and beaten severely while he had a towel placed over his face. He was then left unattended and unconscious for 28 minutes with the towel still over his face and his trousers around his ankles.
Kingsley’s sister, Kedisha Brown-Burrell, said,
“It has been an arduous journey for our family. No family should have an untimely death especially when the death is caused by the police. The conduct of these officers, the disregard of Kingsley.
“The lack of care and ultimately the lying at the inquest, criminal trial and now this misconduct hearing brings the police into disrepute. Losing their jobs is nothing to my one and only brother losing his life.”
Deborah Coles from the Inquest campaigning organisation said, “While gross misconduct by one of these officers has been sanctioned, it is incomprehensible that the excessive use of force by all three officers was not proven.
“The prolonged and brutal restraint of Kingsley was identified and criticised at the inquest as more than minimally contributing to his death. There is too often a disconnect between inquest findings, evidence heard during investigations, and sanctions received.”

Evidence the first officers on scene escalated the situation instead of trying to defuse it
CCTV footage which questions officers’ claims a female officer was kicked and stamped on by Mr Bayoh
Evidence that Mr Bayoh’s actions were exaggerated in official police documents
Claims that racism may have played a role in the events
‘We want to know how he died’
In October, Mr Bayoh’s family were told by the Lord Advocate there was not enough evidence to prosecute any of the officers involved. The Crown Office has not confirmed the decision publicly, and says the case remains open.
Mr Bayoh’s family are likely to ask for the decision to be reviewed but are now calling for a full public inquiry.
His sister, Kadi Johnson, said: “We are still here suffering, his boys are suffering.
“There was no need for Sheku to have died that day. We just want to know how our brother died, that’s all.”
On the day he died, Mr Bayoh had been at a friend’s house in the morning watching a boxing match. He had taken the drugs MDMA and another drug known as Flakka.
The drugs dramatically altered his behaviour, and he became aggressive with a friend. He later left home with a knife from his kitchen, and neighbours called the police. He had discarded the knife by the time police arrived.
Mr Bayoh, who was originally from Sierra Leone but had lived in Scotland since he was 17, was restrained by six officers and lost consciousness. He died at hospital soon after.
Days after his death, the Scottish Police Federation (SPF) lawyer Peter Watson told the media that “a petite female police officer was subjected to a violent and unprovoked attack by a very large man who punched, kicked and stamped on her.”
The new evidence obtained by BBC Disclosure casts doubt on this account.
What does CCTV show?
A leading authority on police restraint and use of force, Eric Baskind, of Liverpool John Moore University, analysed the documents, which included the first statements given by the officers involved.
The documents reveal that before Mr Bayoh’s alleged stamping attack on the officer, three officers discharged their irritant spray into his face and a fourth drew her baton at him.
Mr Baskind said: “What strikes me from the evidence of the officers is that they approach the scene with the intention of using force.
“He’s not running away, he’s not, at that moment in time, creating a danger to anyone.
“They get there, they screech to a halt, they get out of the cars with irritant sprays and batons. That to me doesn’t seem measured.
“That is not best practice. And all of those actions were very escalatory.”
The CCTV shows that Mr Bayoh hits the female officer, known as Officer D, knocking her to the ground. The officer had injuries consistent with being hit on the head.
Mr Baskind said this could have been prevented, if the officers had approached Mr Bayoh “in a different way, in a calming way, to try and find out what was wrong”.
The SPF claim about the stamping incident is based on the testimony of two officers, known in the statements as B and C.
Officer C said: “He stomped on her back with his foot with a great deal of force. He put his full bodyweight into the stomp and used his arms to gain leverage.”
In her own statement, Officer D does not say she was stamped on. There’s no mention of it in the statements of three civilian witnesses who saw the incident either.
The CCTV casts serious doubt on this claim. As soon as Officer D is knocked to the ground by Mr Bayoh, it looks as though the action immediately moves elsewhere, and Mr Bayoh is engaged by the other officers, and within five seconds, he is brought down.
Officer D appears to get up and walk away with another officer’s help.
Mr Baskind said: “The quality of the footage is not very good, but you can certainly make out what’s going on, and I can see no evidence at all of two stamping attacks on the officer on the ground, let alone two very violent ones, that is described in the papers.
“It looks to me as though the officer’s gone down, and pretty straight away Mr Bayoh is taken to the ground by others.
“There certainly seems to me to be a significant discrepancy between what I can see on the footage, and what I’ve read in the papers.”
The BBC also obtained mobile phone footage of the incident, raising questions about how Mr Bayoh was restrained.
Officer B, who is 6ft 4in and weighed 25 stone, told investigators he had Mr Bayoh pinned to the ground for “a maximum of 30 seconds”. Another said the restraint had been, “appropriate, text book stuff, in line with their training.”
A civilian witness saw it differently. She told investigators officers were lying across Mr Bayoh for several minutes.
She said: “I heard him screaming. It sent chills through me. I heard the man shout to get the police off him. They never moved.”
Mr Bayoh suffered 23 separate injuries including a cracked rib, head wounds consistent with baton strikes, and petechial haemorrhages, or burst blood vessels in the eyes, which can be a sign of positional asphyxia, or suffocation.
Cause of death was noted as “sudden death in a man intoxicated…[drugs] whilst under restraint.”
After the death, the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (Pirc) launched an inquiry. Under advice from the SPF lawyer, the officers refused to provide statements to Pirc for 32 days.
BBC Disclosure has seen evidence which shows SPF advice to officers was to wait until the toxicology report was returned before giving statements.
Did race play a part?
The BBC has also seen evidence suggesting that Mr Bayoh’s actions may have been distorted or exaggerated by police.
An internal police document written less than an hour after Bayoh’s death said that police attended reports of a male with a “machete” in the street, and that the “male strikes one with machete”.
None of the officers saw Mr Bayoh with a knife or machete, nor has there ever been any suggestion he struck one of them with a blade.
Police did not respond to questions as to how misinformation like this got into an official police document.
Deborah Coles, from the charity Inquest, which investigates deaths in custody, has been supporting the Bayoh family.
She told the programme: “The pattern that we’ve seen is that the state narrative is very often, when somebody dies after restraint, there is an attempt to demonise or speak ill of the person who’s died…to try and deflect attention away from the actions of the police officers concerned [by] painting a picture of a dangerous man carrying a machete.”
She added: “I think we cannot ignore the role that race may have played in this death…and their immediate resort to the use of force.
“Racial stereotyping of black men as being…big, black, dangerous, informs the way in which they’re treated, and the fact that they are over-policed.”
The Bayoh family’s lawyer Aamer Anwar, told the BBC that racism had been “the elephant in the room”.
He said: “It always has been. It was the stories, it was the pictures, it was the stereotypical images of a large, black male crazed, acting erratically. It was all those things, the word “terrorist” being bandied about.
“Sheku Bayoh’s family believes that race is central to this. The black community believes that race is central to this.”
His sister Ms Johnson, told the BBC: “It has made me lose faith in the police and the justice system as a whole…I don’t think he would have died if he hadn’t met the police.
She added: “He wasn’t himself, the way he was acting, but then no duty of care was given to him…because he was a black man. That’s how we feel.”
Claire Baker, MSP for mid Scotland and Fife, said the allegations in the Disclosure programme were “shocking.”
She added: “I recognise the police do a difficult job…but something went wrong, which raises questions about whether the police’s response was proportionate.
“I think there should be a public inquiry.”
The Scottish government said it was considering a public inquiry.
Police Scotland said it could not comment while the case remained open. A spokesman offered sympathy for the Bayoh family.
The Scottish Police Federation, which represents some of the officers involved in the restraint, said it would be inappropriate to comment until all legal processes were complete, but it added that the BBC sought to publish “fundamental inaccuracies” about the case.
