Frederick Jermaine Carter Hanging 7 Months Later: The Shame Of A Nation

The Honorable Min. Louis Farrakhan Of The Nation Of Islam

The Shame Of A Nation

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

However, the folks who paid for the second autopsy , The Nation Of Islam, were not extended the same courtesy…A source close to the situation told W.E A.L.L. B.E. News that The Nation of Islam has tried on several occasions to get copies of the second autopsy from Dr. Matthias I. Okoye of Nebraska Institute of Forensic Sciences, Inc.,  but were told by the doctor to get their copies from Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe…

W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News tried talked to Dr. Okoye but his lips were HIPPA Act sealed and he told us that he didn’t want to get involved in the controversy…Dr. Okoye suggested that W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News speak with Attorney Hicks-Powe & The Carter-Evans family about the 2nd autopsy results…

Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe has no love for The Nation Of Islam it seems, going as far as not returning The Nation Of Islam’s calls or letting her client, Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans, associate with The Nation of Islam…This would seem very counterproductive to even the most casual or indifferent of observers…After all was it not the Nation Of Islam that first challenged the corporate media’s (read USA Today & Associated Press) interpretations of events  and the narrative by getting the community’s response and  getting  the case front page treatment literally, provided support for the bereaved family via their Fruit Of Islam and MGT(Muslim Girls Training) units providing services for the funeral with the Honorable Min. Yasin Abdullah Muhammad delivering an eulogy????  On top of that it was the Nation Of Islam that footed the bill for the second autopsy and even allowed Brenda Carter-Evans to select the forensic expert of her choice to perform the procedure (a source close to the situation told W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News that Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe wanted the Nation Of Islam to select the forensic expert but that the Honorable Min. Louis Farrakhan declined to do so)… 

She has allegedly claimed that she reimbursed  The Nation Of Islam for services rendered as it relates to the second autopsy but several sources close to the situation said this wasn’t true and that the Honorable Min. Louis Farrakhan would have never agreed to such an arrangement…Does it seems strange then that Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe would tell folks she repaid the Honorable Min. Louis Farrakhan when she is having trouble raising money and getting media attention??? And speaking of burning bridges The Nation Of Islam could have definitely gotten her the media attention and financial support that she seems to crave...After all did not the Nation Of Islam organized both the highly successful Million Man and Millions More Movements respectively that brought literally millions of folks to the Capitol mall???

Once again sources close to the case suggested that Valerie Hicks Powe might have feared The Nation Of Islam would have gotten too much credit which in turn would have stolen the limelight from her…Maybe Valerie Hicks Powe sees this case as an opportunity for her to become a star in her profession and a household name???  A source close to the case told W.E. A.L.L B.E. News that Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe master plan was to allow others to create buzz and media attention while she held on for the ride, swoop down at the last possible moment and take all the credit for their sincere efforts ala April 22 press conference organized by Bro. Wendol Lee & Operation Help Civil Rights…Like a barnacle on a whale or a flea on a dog, Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe took advantage of her  hosts by thanklessly consuming their resources without returning their goodwill…Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe seems more interested in seeking media fame for her own self-interests rather than pursuing justice through the proper legal channels for her client…

The problem with this approach is that the all-time great lawyers make their names usually by winning cases…The reality is Valerie Hicks-Powe is not well known outside of Birmingham, Alabama …She does not have a track record of note in trial lawyer situations…I am not writing this as a knock but when folks think of a situation like this they usually think of what you would call a venerable and legendary trial lawyer like a Johnny Cochran, a Thurgood Marshall,  a F. Lee Bailey, a William Kunstler, a Clarence Darrow etc.,…I am not doubting her expertise in handling corporate law issues but I don’t think she has the gravitas or experience to handle a case of this type or magnitude…Normally lawyers in a case like this try to build goodwill and an environment of cooperation (read inclusiveness) with those individuals, communities and /or organizations who would like the support the cause of their client (Think Johnny Cochran brilliantly re-imagining and building a bridge for O.J. Simpson to the Black Community, a community he shunned so long ago in good times)…

However, one must wonder how she would ever achieve her ends of fame and possible fortune if she keeps alienating key and influential supporters like The Nation Of Islam from the case???
