Advocate, Provocateur, Or Saboteur: The Enigma Of Valerie Hicks Powe 

By Bro. Ron a.k.a. R2C2H2 Tha Artivist
W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News Special Report...

“A Lawyer Who Is Not A Social Engineer Is A Social Parasite” ~Charles Hamilton Houston

Valerie Hicks Powe is known as a corporate lawyer, well I can’t say she is truly that well known or what her true purpose is, advocate, provocateur or saboteur, as it relates to this case...I do not understand for the life of me why Brenda Carter-Evans decided to get a corporate lawyer without any or very limited trial experience in this area instead of a seasoned, knowledgeable civil or criminal lawyer is beyond me…A source knowledgeable of the case told W.E. A.L.L. B.E News that Valerie Hicks Powe, who lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama, was recently hired by the Mississippi Highway Patrol last year to conduct seminars/workshops…This same source also told W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News that Valerie Hicks Powe was recommended  to Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans by a family friend who is also a Mississippi Highway Patrolman…Valerie Hicks Powe has made several claims through the media that she feels that Frederick Jermaine Carter was murdered and that she felt that the law enforcement officials in Leflore County have failed to do their jobs in terms of preserving the crime scene, conducting a proper investigation thus alluding that the Leflore County Sheriff and Coroner’s Office were involved in a cover-up conspiracy from the start…Does it seem like a conflict of interest to have a lawyer who recently worked for law enforcement officials of a state on favorable terms to now accuse members of the law enforcement  community of the same state in a murder cover-up conspiracy?

And if this is Valerie Hicks Powe’s reasoning then why hasn’t she filed a lawsuit against Leflore County or the state of Mississippi? What is she waiting on? Perhaps a settlement? Once again I ask the question why has the Carter-Evans family retained a corporate lawyer as their legal representative in this scenario which would seem to be a criminal/wrongful death matter? Let’s define what a corporate lawyer is…

The definitions of a corporate lawyer are as follows:
Whether serving as in-house or outside counsels, corporate lawyers are hired to keep companies out of trouble by anticipating and helping to circumvent problems. They also keep their clients up to date on new business laws and regulations. Corporate lawyers provide advice on labor relations, employee contracts, tax issues, suits against the corporation, employee injury, patents, and contracts with suppliers of raw materials.

The role of a corporate lawyer is to ensure the legality of commercial transactions, advising corporations on their legal rights and duties, including the duties and responsibilities of corporate officers. In order to do this, they must have knowledge of aspects of contract law, tax law, accounting, securities law, bankruptcy, intellectual property rights, licensing, zoning laws, and the laws specific to the business of the corporations that they work for.

Here is Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe’s own definition of what she does from her website http://www.valeriehickspowe.com/ :

Valerie is a practicing attorney specializing in employment law and mediator trained through the Atlanta Justice Center. With nearly a decade of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and an extensive background with government agencies, she offers her clients myriad of management resources and training tools.

Valerie is an effective leader, whose past and present activities includes serving on Boards of Directors for the National Employment Lawyers Association, Legal Services, the Alabama Lawyer’s Association and a Committee Member of Operation New Birmingham.

I will ask again, what is a corporate lawyer used to conducting workshops and seminars for government agencies doing involved in a wrongful death situation where government authorities are accused of not doing their jobs and possible cover-up? And why is a person more familiar or seasoned in the Alabama legal culture stepping foot into seemingly foreign Mississippi territory? Does she has a license to practice law in Mississippi?  Not one of her credentials mentioned on her website lets us know she is otherwise qualified to handle Mississippi’s interpretation of law and order...Also her experience in law seems to make her more acclimated and sympathetic towards the corporate or government agency culture of doing things (Goliath) than towards the underdog (David)…In other words why should she take on a case with a client who alleges wrongdoing was perpetuated by those government entities that basically sign her paychecks and butters her bread???

Why Is Valerie Hicks Powe Keeping Both Autopsy Results In Her Possession & From The Public?

Another thing I have learned about Valerie Hicks Powe is that she has been going around telling folks that the autopsy results have not been released and that the state is withholding evidence thus stopping a true investigation from taking place…This is a lie…A source told me she said something similar to the above at the 47th Annual Mississippi Martyrs Memorial Service in Neshoba County,Ms, during Father’s Day Weekend 2011…Valerie Hicks Powe also told same source that Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans, her client, was also causing problems in the case as well…Oh really??? The same Brenda Carter-Evans who seems to put all of her abiding faith and confidence in Valerie Hicks Powe so much so that she refuses to give interviews without her consent???

I reminded the source that this wasn’t true and that W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News was instrumental in securing the release of said autopsy results from the Miss. State Medical Examiner’s Office this past March and that the evidence is all over the internet…As a matter of fact Dr. Adel Shaker said that he indeed did send a copy of the autopsy results to Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe…I also informed the source that Leflore County Coroner Debra Sanders stated that the state autopsy results were indeed in her possession but when she spoke to W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News in late April she said that no one from the immediate family has come to claim the autopsy results and that she will release them to immediate family only due to the HIPPA Act  (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIPPA

This however contradicts what Dr. Adel Shaker stated to W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News back in March about the availability of the autopsy results to the public but he later recanted and for the most part backed Coroner Debra Sander’s assertion that the autopsy results could not be available to the public due to the HIPPA Act as well as a pending investigation which begs the question if there are no plans to really conduct an investigation when will these autopsy results be available???  Why hasn’t anyone from the family sought to get the autopsy results from the Leflore County Coroner’s Office if they have been available since April???

Once again why is Valerie Hicks Powe telling folks that she doesn’t have access to the state autopsy results??? To add even further insult to injury Valerie Hicks Powe has been telling folks she doesn’t have the second autopsy results…Does anyone beside me see a disturbing pattern developing?

The first autopsy results were sent directly to her from the Miss. State Medical Examiner’s Office and the second autopsy results were sent by Dr. Matthias I. Okoye of Nebraska Institute of Forensic Sciences, Inc.,…The first autopsy results according to Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe are not complete because they do not include photos from the first autopsy nor the full toxicology report…Dr. Adel Shaker didn’t rule on cause of death according to several sources because he wasn’t sure what a second opinion would say…Also Dr. Shaker’s autopsy report states that the toxicology results “reveals negative results for the tested substances tested”…However, what were “the tested substances tested” and could there be drugs that aren’t tested for that wouldn’t show up on a toxicology report if the examiner wasn’t necessarily looking for them? This case is really contradictory on many levels…At this point one cannot be sure if there is a true conspiracy or a true comedy of errors now going on, making this tragedy even more of a travesty than it really should be…
