Posted - 17 Sep 2015 : 14:33:54 Kim Dortch & Melody Kramer - Update on Dortch Family Battle with Riverside County Police - September 16, 2015
Kim Dortch, a nurse and nutritional therapy practitioner, and her husband, Dave, an optometrist, appeared on Red Ice Radio in October 2014 to tell the horrific story of the ongoing police harassment they had endured since their 12-year-old son was arrested and charged for graffiti “vandalism” in Riverside County back in March of 2013.
The Dortch’s attorney, Melody A. Kramer is a veteran trial lawyer, having handled criminal cases and civil business disputes in federal, state, and tribal courts for over 20 years. She is a graduate of the University of Nebraska, College of Law in Lincoln, Nebraska, and was awarded The Order of Barristers for excellence in the art of courtroom advocacy. Ms. Kramer is completing her latest book that will be an exposé on the nature of lawyers - “Why Lawyers Suck and What You Can Do About It.”
Kim and Melody are with us for an update on the grim and perplexing situation that has unfolded since November 1, 2014 when Dave was originally arrested for a crime essentially manufactured by Riverside County police. Melody describes the blowback she encountered when filing court documents in the Dortch’s civil rights and now two criminal cases, along with the glaring errors, anomalies and conflicts of interest within the court system that have made for a clearly corrupt case impossible to navigate. Kim explains the unlawful arrest and imprisonment of Dave that occurred on September 1, 2015 after he peacefully walked out of a courtroom where a judge refused to produce any legally binding documents in the case against him. She recounts the brutal arrest by a “fugitive warrant enforcement team” in Dave’s place of business, where he was maliciously forced into custody, detained in chains for two days, and held without bail. Melody goes on to explain how the presiding judge forcefully appointed a public defender for Dave against his wishes, then proceeded to suspend the case and order a 45-day psychiatric hold in jail and a mental competence evaluation by county paid psychiatrists.
Further, Kim touches on the US’s corporatized government and constitution and the federal grant money awarded to state-run departments willing to contract with and feed the totalitarian machine.
