June 1, 2018 – I was able to attend court this afternoon when Ferreira put Michael Cooley on the stand. The afternoon session turned into a free-for-all and a slugfest. It has been a while since I’ve put my disclaimer in one of my commentaries so I am going to repost it now to let the readers, some of whom may have been instructed not to read about the case. Disclaimer:
As is my normal custom, I usually do a disclaimer on my commentaries. I wish to carry on that tradition by saying that having spent 27 years in law enforcement I hold law enforcement officers in high regard. Unfortunately, there is a very small percentage, probably less than 3% of the officers out there, should be BEING ARRESTED instead of making arrests.
In my commentaries I deal with the less than 3%. These are the ones who file false police reports, intimidate witnesses, commit perjury while testifying in court, manufacture evidence, brutally assault innocent citizens, sometimes murder innocent citizens and bring dishonor and shame a to the other 97% of the officers who put their lives on the line every day protecting us from the dregs of society who are running loose on the streets.
I wish to say here that what I write is my own opinion, although there are people I have talked to that share my opinion which is generally borne out by facts and in no way reflects the opinion, views or beliefs of anyone who may publish or make my commentaries available to the public.
After having seen what transpired in court this afternoon, I find it necessary to again compare a very select FEW members of fladager’s staff from the top down to a jellyfish. Those of you whom I am referring to know exactly who you are, and so do the citizens that have been watching the Carson persecution since its inception started by a high muckity muck and you know who you are. Hence the comparison as follows:
May 28, 2018 – “After I did a couple of chapter ending experiments, it was confirmed to me that in my opinion certain high-ranking and maybe, only maybe, the highest members of the District Attorney’s Office, and you know exactly who you are so I don’t have to lay it out for you; and certain Dist. Atty.’s office “task force” (OOOH,OOOH. THERE’S THAT BAD WORD AGAIN. NEENER, NEENER) investigative personnel, and you know exactly who you are, are morphing into jellyfish. No names here, just conjecture.
All right now people. In case you forgot your high school biology I am going to give you a quick refresher course. The question is what is a jellyfish?
A jellyfish is an invertebrate and as such, has no spine. A jellyfish also has no brain and no heart. They have an orifice that functions as both the mouth and anus.
Are you getting the picture yet? Okay, that’s enough biology class for today kids.”
The afternoon session began with Cooley being sworn in which may have been a waste of breath. Ferreira began lobbing softball questions at him. Cooley stated that he had moved into the property on Lander Avenue and lived there from 2011 until 2015. He also stated that at one point his sister Linda Burns and Ricky Cooley moved in when their house burned in Keyes.
Ferrera then asked Cooley if he knew the person in the picture she was going to show him. I was seated in the right hand side of the gallery near the rear as you face the judge. Seated on the left side in the row closest to the “well” was Korey Kauffman’s dad Tony Kauffman. Ferrera traipsed around behind the defense attorneys and up to the clerk to obtain the picture which had been placed into evidence.
As she walked back toward the gallery to go behind the defense team and her own table, she had the picture of Korey Kauffman which was an 8 x 10 print in her hand with his picture facing the gallery as she walked past. I noticed Mr. Kaufman look at it as she passed. I thought her display of the picture was in very bad taste but not unexpected by me. I think most of her taste is in her mouth.
I lost my son to colon cancer several years ago. He had served honorably in the U.S. Navy and then was employed by Delta Airlines until his passing. When I see a sailor or see an ad for Delta Airlines, it reminds me of my son and how much I miss him. I grieve for Mr. Kaufman because of the tragic loss of his son. Some people callously will say to one who has lost their child, “I know exactly how you feel”. No they don’t!!! Until you have lost a child, shut up. Again, my condolences to Tony Kauffman.
KS After Ferrera showed the picture to Cooley, Cooley said yes, that was Korey and he was his friend. Ferrera then asked Cooley if he ever had a fight with Korey. Cooley said no Ferrera asked if he ever had any trouble with Korey. Cooley stated no. Ferrera asked if Cooley was jealous of Korey. Cooley stated no. Au contraire Pierre!!! A witness by the name of Kimberly Stout begs to differ with “Monsieur” Cooley. (Stupid spell-check keeps spelling his name Culo and I have to constantly correct it. I’m about to turn spell-check off.) :
January 5, 2016 – Well the first recording of an interview with Kimberly Stout and Bunch and his partner was played. During part of the audio tape Stout indicated that Michael Cooley and Eula Keyes had stolen a lot of stuff from Frank Carson’s property. They then either sold it to Linda Fisher or exchanged it for drugs. Stout said that Linda Fisher is the one selling dope to everybody.
She also stated that Michael Cooley had set Korey Kauffman up because Cooley felt that Corey was trying to make a move on Eula. (Chortle, chortle) She also stated that she hoped that Korey Kauffman was going to be okay as Michael Cooley had made a threat against him. Bunch was heard on the tape then saying that Korey Kauffman had stolen stuff too.
So here we have Kimberly Stout talking about Michael Cooley and Eula Keyes’s stealing property from Frank Carson and then selling it to a fence by the name of Linda Fisher or exchanging the property for drugs because Fisher is also a drug dealer. Do we see any reports regarding thefts, possession of stolen property are being busted for selling drugs to these fine citizens? No of course not because they are some of the persecutions star witnesses. Hang on for the free ride. No deals here folks. Nothing to see. Move along now.
Ferrera then asked him about drug use. Cooley stated that in 2012 he was using both meth and heroin. He said he was using meth about two times a week and heroin every day. We don’t have an update on his usage up through today.
Ferrera asked him if he ever stolen anything from Frank Carson’s property. He stated they did. Then at Ferrera’s direction he corrected they to him so as not to implicate Eula no doubt. He stated he had stolen books, China, stainless steel teapots and just about everything. He stated all of the property was found out in the open against the fence. If you believe that, I want to sell you one of my thriving businesses which is selling ice cubes to the Eskimos in Alaska. Outside up against the fence. Chortle, chortle, chortle.
Cooley stated that he had gone into Carson’s property to steal along with Keith Hobbs. Keith Hobbs is Eula’s son. You know all about the Apple falling from the tree RIGHT? And Eula Keyes was aware of the thieving going on. They were fencing the stolen property to a guy named Mark in Sonora area.
Cooley was asked if he knew Ronald Cooper. Cooley stated he does and that “Cooper is a nobody”!! Ronald Cooper was given a special deal by the DA for his testimony even though the DA claims no deals were made which makes the DA A BALD FACED LIAR! Let’s hit the archives again for proof:
November 11, 2016 – Mme. DA has been caught numerous times failing to tell the truth and failing to provide Brady material in a timely manner until she has been caught up with by the defense attorneys. She comes up with excuse after excuse to try to justify why the Brady material wasn’t provided in a timely manner. All of her excuses are like armpits, everybody’s got a couple and they all stink. There have been numerous instances in which the defense attorneys requested sanctions against Mdm. Dist. Atty. and the judge has refused to do so.
One of the major lies Mdm. Dist. Atty. has spewed forth in court is that none of the recalcitrant dregs of society who are her star witnesses have ever been offered a deal for the testimony they are providing. In open court she vehemently denied that any deals were made. But up jumped the devil or in this case a saint. A saint in the form of a young deputy public defender by the name of Ben Rosenstein. Deputy public defender Ben Rosenstein took the stand and testified that two of his clients, Ronald Cooper Junior and Michael Cooley were in fact given deals for their testimony.
This was testified to in open court and is on the record. Mdm. Dist. Atty. was shown to be blatantly lying in open court and yet there were no sanctions taken. There have been other occasions when Mme. Dist. Atty. blatantly broke court rules and it was requested that sanctions be imposed but the judge refused to impose them. It makes a reasonable person wonder why the judge is allowing Mme. district attorney to have a free reign in the courtroom. Just saying…
Ronald Cooper was given a sweet deal for his testimony. Instead of getting a third strike like he should have, he was allowed to plead out to domestic violence and given a short-term in state prison. I am sure that once Ronald Cooper gets out hears that Michael Cooley called him a “nobody”, Michael Cooley may be hearing a “somebody” that he called a “nobody “in court, knocking on his door to clear the name calling up.
Cooley also testified that the hole that was in the fence allowing thieves to enter Frank Carson’s property from Cooley’s to steal from Frank Carson was there when he rented the place. Hey folks!!!! Still got that thriving business selling ice cubes to Eskimos in Alaska for sale if you’re interested and if you believe Cooley. Cooley even testified that he tried to fix the whole but people just opening it up.
Ferrera asked him if he was getting some stolen property from the people that were coming out of the hole in the fence onto his property and Cooley said no and that in fact he even had to fight the people to stop stealing Frank Carson’s property. My business is looking better and better and I hear Alaska is nice this time a year. Let’s just get into the archives to verify the good deeds of Michael Cooley and protecting Frank Carson’s property:
December 3, 2015 – The article then states “Cooley is expected to testify at some point about confrontations with Carson”. Well there’s the half truth. Now for the Back Story: if the Bee reporter would’ve been there for the testimony, he would’ve heard Ronald Cooper testify that Michael Cooley had what you would consider a tollgate leading from his property onto the Frank Carson property.
The toll charge to the thieves to enter Frank Carson’s property through the fence and come back through onto Michael Cooley’s property was to allow Michael Cooley to take whatever he wanted of the stolen property from the thieves for himself. And Ronald Cooper testified that if there was any argument between the thieves and Michael Cooley, Michael Cooley’s knife decided who would win, the thieves or Michael Cooley. But Cooper doesn’t want to be called a “snitch”. Imagine that.
Michael Cooley’s feigned anger at Frank Carson was to disguise the fact that Michael Cooley is a hypocritical thief that will stop at nothing including assault with a deadly weapon (Knife) to take whatever stolen property he wants for himself. The question arises, did Korey Kauffman unfortunately argue with “Alligator” Cooley regarding some of the stolen property Cooley wanted? Don’t know, just saying… Do we see another person with a motive to murder Korey Kaufman here? Ya think maybe? The one who was admittedly the last person to see Korey Kaufman alive? Just saying…
December 15, 2015 – Defense attorney Hans Hjertonsson asked Cooper if he had been released on his own recognizance when a felony conviction in prison priors and Cooper stated that he had. Cooper was then asked if Cooley had pulled a knife on Cooper stated that he had. It had to do with a romantic interest that Cooley thought he had in Eula Keyes. Cooper stated that that was over that but he had no interest in Keyes.
In answer to Ms Carlton Magana’s question, Cooper stated that Cooley had pulled a knife on him twice over Eula Keyes. When Ronald Cooper brought some of the women over to Michael Cooley’s to party, Cooley thought Cooper was bringing women over to distract him while Cooper tried to make it with Eula Keyes. Cooper again stated that he had no interest in Eula Keyes. Cooper stated that another person by the name of Tommy Dewise had a knife pulled on him by Cooley thinking that Dewise was making a move on Eula Keyes.
Michael Cooley jealous of Eula Keyes? People!!!!!! what no world would make you think that? (Chortle chortle)
Cooley went on to testify that the night Korey went missing, he and Korey had talked about going over to Carson’s property to steal some aluminum irrigation pipes they could see. They had headlamps in order to see in the dark but Cooley stated that he changed his mind because prior that evening he had seen two people on Carson’s property carrying something which appeared to be a rifle and he decided not to go and told Korey not to go.
Corey told him that he was not going to go to Carson’s property but to somewhere else that night to find recyclables.
Ferreira then asked Cooley where they took to re-cycles to turn them in. Cooley stated that they take the items to TJ’s Recycle Center close to the house. The recycle center was owned by TJ Samra/Singh. Speaking of TJ Samra raises to another example of how closely Ferrera compares to a jellyfish. Remember the jellyfish has no spine, no heart, no brain and an orifice that functions both as an anus and a mouth. Let’s dig into the archives again see more of Ferrera’s ethics, integrity, honor, decency and moral compass. MOSTLY LACK OF:
June 27, 2016
– Then some months later Jim Demartini has what is purported to be an “interview” with Bunch, believed to be Marlissa Ferreira, Bob Taro and somebody else. This visit by Bunch and Ferreira kind of mirror how they came to a citizen named Samra and jerked him around. Here’s a recap of what happened to him:
I was appalled at the conduct afforded Mr. Samra by the Dist. Atty. staff. I was in law enforcement for 27 years, 19 years here in Stanislaus County and have never seen such underhanded, unethical and lowdown tactics as exhibited by the District Attorney’s Office against Mr. Samra. When you read what they did you need to be very angry with the District Attorney’s Office for their ethics destroying actions and worried that they could do this to you or your family.
There is no question that Investigator Bunch had knowledge of the warrant outstanding for Mr. Samra when they went to his residence and made contact with him. While interviewing him and telling him what he should do when defense attorney Forkner talks to him and then saying” I was never here and this never happened” smacks of egregious misconduct. Both Ferreira and bunch were there in the effort to intimidate Mr. Samra.
Then in court when Mr. Samra’s testimony was not favorable to the prosecution, all of a sudden the deputy district attorney Ferreira blurts out, “you have a warrant don’t you? Mr. Samra is arrested and booked on a warrant that they knew about when they first talked to him. YOU DON’T GET MUCH MORE LOW LIFE THEN THAT!
The judge brought everyone into chambers and admonished the district attorney. How would you like a member of your family to be victimized like this by the top law enforcement officer in Stanislaus County. This is sad, so very sad. So everyone of needs to beware of snakes in the grass disguised as law enforcement personnel. SHAMEFUL!!
We then took the afternoon break. Everybody went out into the hallway and I went from the court room down to a level 3 feet down that leads to the elevators. The attorneys for Baljit and Daljit were talking to their clients. Attorney Gohel saw Ferrera, Kirk Bunch and Cooley’s appointed attorney Mr. Phipps talking to Cooley by the courtroom doors. Mr. Gohel was watching them from a distance of 20 to 25 feet and felt there was prosecutorial misconduct because Ferrera was talking to a witness who is currently on the stand.
I did not see the exchange between Ferrera and Mr. Gohel but when we went back into court which is outside of the presence of the jury, Mr. Martinez stated to the judge that he feels that Ferrera was in ex parte communication with Cooley. Mr. Martinez stated that the defense should have a right to know what they were talking about.
Mr. Gohel then stated that Ferrera was acting out of line because in the hallway she told him to move. He did not move and she ordered him again to move. She claimed that Cooley said that Mr. Gohel was “mad dogging” him and she ordered Mr. Gohel the third time to move or she would report him to the court accusing him of witness intimidation. Boy!!! Is that ever a laugher. Here we have big bad “Blade” Cooley who loves knives and loves pulling knives on people claiming he is intimidated by a person smaller than he is. What a wimp.
These comments by the attorneys are taken place in the courtroom and the voices are elevated and angry. Mr. Gohel informed the court that Ferrera does not own the hallways in the courthouse and that the public does. He stated that it appeared that Ferrera was committing prosecutorial misconduct by talking to a witness who is on the stand.
Then Ferrera tells the court that once the afternoon break was called, she said Cooley was having a problem at the stand and allegedly told her that he is not going to stick around because they won’t let him talk. Ferrera says that they were talking to Cooley to try to prevent him from leaving and telling him that there would be a warrant issued for his arrest.
Ferrera doesn’t like to be challenged and became visibly shaken. Mr. Martinez stated that he was not aware that the court gave Ferrera permission to talk to the witness. The judge said that she knew there was a little something that happened on the stand but she is not aware of what was. The judge stated that Ferrera and Mr. Gohel have an antagonistic relationship as was evidenced earlier in the judge’s chambers. So Ferrera’s panties started giving in a wad while they were in the judge’s chambers.
Please review my description of a jellyfish above in my commentary. It was at this point that Ferrera exhibited all four characteristics of a jellyfish. And she did it in spades. Ferrera in her rant then said “I have seen the defendants communicating with each other which is a violation of the O.R. agreement. I want to their O.R. revoked and want them taken into custody”.
Besides being a low life jellyfish egotistical, ASS-inine, vengeful, bitter, ruthless and pitiful spoiled brat juvenile stunt, it is more of the same outrageous conduct she has exhibited since day one in the preliminary hearing up through today. The judge informed her that the Athwals run a business together and are family so they will of course be talking to each other. Ferrera says “Well Frank Carson was there too”. What a crybaby. She has no idea what the conversation was if in fact there was a conversation.
She needs to start looking at that pack of social misfits, drug addicts, thieves, embezzlers, felony assaulters and thugs that she is using as witnesses. There is no doubt that they all get together and huddle and want to know what each other said on the stand and what they should say. There is no way that a jury could possibly give any credibility to these misfits who received special deals, considerations, criminal dismissals, reduced sentences, reduced charges for favorable testimony.
I refer you above two page 3 and 4 when Ferrera is caught in a bald faced lie stating that no deals were made. Ferrera puts Monty Hall to shame. In all of the years that Monty Hall hosted “Let’s Make A Deal”, he couldn’t catch up with the deals Ferrera has given mutts like her witnesses in this case. She’s into deep now. She has to pull everything she can to try to fool 12 citizens into believing that three innocent people committed the heinous offense of a homicide that has never yet been proven.
The judge instructed her that if she wished to pursue that she would have to file a motion, the defense would have time to respond to the motion, witnesses would be called at a hearing held on June 22, 2018. Ferrera has cloned herself after fladager whose motto is: “If you can’t beat em, book em,”. Shameful, shameful conduct. Come on folks, on June 5 it’s time to sweep the trash out of the District Attorney’s Office.
I think it’s time to bring this dog and pony show to an end and bring the Department of Justice in to investigate the District Attorney’s Office for prosecutorial misconduct based on Ferrera lying in open court about deals being made for their witnesses and fladager’s statement during a candidate debate that even though senior deputy DAs might recommend a dismissal for a citizen charged with a crime, even if they were factually innocent, fladager has instructed the senior deputy DAs to give the cases to all of the new inexperienced and green deputy DAs to get courtroom experience even though the persons are INNOCENT!!! How would you like one of your family who is innocent, to be taken to trial because the district attorney wants to have the green and inexperienced deputy DAs have “gunnery practice” on them?
Prosecuting innocent people is criminal conduct and should be addressed. Wake up people!!!! Sweep the trash out of the District Attorney’s Office on June 5.
I am going to be writing these commentaries as long as I can but I expect the Dist. Atty. to try to silence me in one manner or another. My belief is based on what of my commentaries when I was in court. So here it is from the archives:
November 25, 2015 – “As I mentioned earlier in a comment, Dist. Atty. Ferreira complained to Judge Zuniga that I was writing comments regarding this case. She said that my writings were inflammatory and might influence potential jurors if this “case” makes it to trial. I am paraphrasing what she said. She also mentioned to Judge Zuniga that she wants a “gag order “put in place. Judge Zuniga refused a request and told her to file a motion.
As I mentioned, I am humbled by the thought that deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira feels that something I write could possibly influence anyone and sway their opinion regarding this airtight, slam-dunk, gotcha, “it’s in the bag” and it’s all over but the shouting case of theirs. Chortle, chortle!!!
Dist. Atty. Ferreira wants to suffocate my right to publish an average citizen’s perception of the events of this preliminary hearing. I have no idea what Dist. Atty. Ferreira is so afraid of regarding what I write. Albert Einstein once said “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth”. As citizens, we have to have respect for authority, but must not go along like lambs being led to slaughter”. I will close with a quote from another Patriot, Thomas Paine: “Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best stage, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one”.
Much more to come…
In passing: Two guys were picked up by the cops for smoking dope and appeared in court before the judge. The judge said, “You seem like nice young men, and I’d like to give you a second chance rather than jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to show others the evils of drug use and pursued them to give up drugs forever.
I’ll see you back in court Monday.” Monday, the two guys were in court, and the judge said to the first one, “How did you do over the weekend?” “Well, your honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever.” “17 people? That’s wonderful. What did you tell them?” “I used a diagram, your honor. I drew two circles like this: O o and told them this (the big circle) is your brain before drugs and this (small circle)is your brain after drugs.” “That’s admirable,” said the judge.
“And you, how did you do?” (to the 2nd guy) “Well, your honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever.” “156 people! That’s amazing! How did you manage to do that!” “Well, I used the same two circles. I pointed to the small circle and told them, “This is your rectum before prison….”
