A textbook example of the warping effect that $10 billion of China White heroin had upon major media, law enforcement, and judicial processes in Arizona. B.Q. 4-20-96
This article is derived from the introduction to the first chapter of a book in process which intends to explain to the people of Thailand, the United States, and the world the crimes associated with the Wat Promkunaram murders. The title of this evolving book is, THE BEST JUSTICE DRUG MONEY CAN BUY.
The murders at Wat Promkunaram Temple occured in an environment of total corruption. There may be no location on the planet in greater need of the teachings of the Buddha.
This letter to the HARVARD educated monk provides a more current view of the state of the Jonathan Doody Appeal. It is characteristic of other letters that were sent to Thai human rights activists. None were answered. I was told by one local Thai that my investigations "stained the honor of Buddhism." If the truth of the TEMPLE MURDERS stains the honor of Buddhism then there is no honor to stain.
This is the first in a series of articles on the 1991 murders of 9 Buddhists in a West Phoenix temple that was published in THE GRAPEVINE. This 60,000 per/week tabloid was put together by MENSA members who had previously published the newsletter for the GREATER PHOENIX MENSA SOCIETY. It was intended as a social experiment to help the most desperately needy in Arizona. The paper was distributed solely by the Phoenix homeless who kept the money they received from each sale. This placed $40,000 a week directly into the hands of the most desperately needy causing crime statistics to plummet, embarrassing the law and order types.
The note written in Thai that was left on the table next to the dead bodies provides the direct lead to the 4 shipments of China White heroin.
We try to explain to the community the significance of the failure of the prosecution to produce a title of ownership for the alleged Temple Murders Weapon. Local media pretend that this information was never published. There is no response. Local media stopped all coverage of the temple murders and the GRAPEVINE. This is called a "news blackout".
A botched job of framing innocent teenagers is revealed in this issue but FBI and BATF Special Agents In Charge refuse to conduct handwriting analysis on scratched out sections of the gun ledger and refuse x-ray and infra-red testing of the alleged temple murders weapon. At the supervisory levels the agents were hot to run these tests. The profoundly corrupt Agents In Charge were Weldon Kennedy of the FBI (assigned to investigate the Oklahoma City Bombing) and John McGaw of BATF (who lead the Waco raid).
The County Attorney called a press conference and said "The gun store clerk made a mistake". The local media said in effect, That's good enough for us. But anyone who has ever purchased a gun should have known better. Not one gun activist or militia type contacted the GRAPEVINE about the many gun law violations vistied upon these teens. I have found these blow hard patroits to be shameless cowards. These types are mentally unarmed and are being lead into harms way.
Here are a few points of law that Jonathan Doody's attornies, Peter Baukin and Alen Dershewitz appearently never learned in law school.
It was of no consequence to the court that the testimony used to convict Jonathan Doody was patently at odds with the Medical Examiner's account of the crime scene. The court did acknowledge that there was no physical evidence linking the teens to the murder scene. The muddy foot prints in the temple did not match the teens nor did the muddy tire tracks match a vehicle owned by the teens. Only confessions extracted by the same cops who weeks before forced 4 other inocent youths to confess convicted Doody --- this and the highly suspect rifle.
Three times top military intelligence officers from LUKE AIR FORCE BASE were to question Jonathan Doody without his parents being present. This was in violation of AIR FORCE regulations that clearly state that never are military dependents to be questioned without the presence of their parents. And three times these officers violated the regulation that parents of military dependants were to be notified of any contact their children had with the military police. On the second detention the teens were held for 3 1/2 hours in the back seat of a police crusier while the rifle was taken somewhere and returned.
Keating Five senator, Denis DeConncini, grew up spending his childhood at the Joe Bonnano residence. That was before he became Co-chairman of the Senate Narcotics Control Committee.
This report, written months after the incidents, is probably the most accurate account. Neither the Sheriff nor the County Attorney would release the actual signed duty reports of the officers involved in these key incidents. Instead these supplemental reports, prepared months latter, and highly colored, were all that were released. Note that while this fabricated "teens firing a gun from a car" story did not result in one officer asking the teens one question about such an incident.
Sgt. Paul Thompson, the head of LUKE MPs states Doody and Charatachea were stopped on the base 10 days after the murders not because they were "fireing a rifle from a car window" but because he issued a bulletin that mourning to stop them!
Deputy Terrell was not a field officer. He was in the Transportation and Services department. He would be called to move property --- like a rifle. For 3 1/2 hours that night the teens were separated from that rifle. Never was the serial number of the gun referenced on any initial report. This is unheard of in police work!! Dispite our repeated insistance we were never provided a copy of a signed duty report.
Defense attorney, Peter Baukin admitts that he believes the bodies were moved after discovery on the interview tape we offer in our journalist's kit, but does not introduce this shocking evidence in Jonathan Doody's trial or in the Alan Dershowitz Appeal. The week the GRAPEVINE published this most shocking of all exposes --- the one which threw the spot light upon the intelligence arm of the Air Force --- my car which had been stolen when this series began --- turned up burned to a crisp on an indian reservation.
OSI Agent Hovis Chasteen is flown in from Nellis Air Force Base to head the "mini-task force on the temple murders" because of his vast experience with the Thai people" and in 2 days he has his hands on the murder weapon. Wouldn't one think that he would want to take some of the credit for solving the worst mass murder in the history of Arizona? No, he preferred to stay in the shadows. OSI had Doody's apartment under surveillance for the seisure by Steve McGibbons, the Air Force's top forensics export for the western United States. McGibbons was present when Doody was stopped earlier on base housing.
Here is the last article I wrote for the GRAPEVINE. It was never published because the staff was in shock when 15 Phoenix police jumped on top of a GRAPEVINE writer in an awkward sting attempt against the newspaper and later that same day the incident described below takes place. After all these denials of any involvement we learned from police documents that it was County Attorney Rick Romley himself who made the decision to turn the pirated newspapers over to the man who effectively destroyed the viability of the paper. Police documents of these two incidents were clearly prepared by the same person.
Events that could only happen in an environment of total corruption.
The undisputed heroin overlord of the Golden Triangle cuts a deal with the Burmese government. Khun Sa has close relatives living in the Phoenix area.
Is this proof that the drug king pins have Arizona's monopoly newspaper in their pocket?
Drug corruption is the same the world over. Ten billion dollars of China White heroin warps justice in Thailand while the Supreme Court denies Jonathan Doody a fair trial.
