The story starts here:  CHRONOLOGY OF CORRUPTION!

puffin tuff-6

For over a year now TKP Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in Shelby County Tennessee.  He was last arrested on what was to be his sentencing date for April 3rd, 2018, but ended up being a “failure to appear” charge, and later on a cannabis charge after he decided to smoke Cannabis in front of the Courthouse on that day instead of showing up for Court.

The history of the conspiracy is explained on the Thorne Peters Website along with a lot of other information.  Also, a very in-depth article about the pending cases is written by The Memphis Truth Commission.

Previous articles from USMjPartyKY are here.

Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

Above:  Video by Lady L (Linda Harrah) on Facebook.  Includes latest updates as of 5/13/19.

The latest information in this saga is that at least six Officials have been recused from Thorne Peter’s trial for varying reasons.  They are:  Carolyn Wade Blackett, Judge Paula Skahan, J. Robert Carter Jr.,  J. Lammey Jr., John Wheeler Campbell, and Asst. DA Mike         Mc Cusker.

On Monday, Criminal Court Judge Jim Lammey, in a separate incident, has caused quite a stir over posts he made on Facebook.  A number of organizations are requesting that he be censured.

June 3rd is the date set for there to be another Judge assigned to the case.

Meanwhile, at the Penal Farm, Thorne continues to fight human rights abuses within the system of the prison.  Commissary items, books and other reading materials, paper and pens, things that we use everyday, these prisoners had been given no access to where Thorne is being held.  As a result of Thorne’s intervention, the policies were changed.  These items are now available.  He continues to assist from within wherever he can.

You have to ask why so many judges are recusing on his Cannabis cases? Why they have to make it about something besides pot? This time it is failure to appear. When will he get a clear cannabis case?  Lady L

THORNE PETERS: 387 DAYS AND STILL COUNTING, IN THE MEMPHIS, TN PENAL SYSTEM–STILL FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS…

thorne_peters_portraitcrop

SINCE APRIL 3rd, 2018 Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in the prison system of MemphisTennessee.

As he fights for his own rights and OUR rights as a cannabis consumers,  he also fights for prisoners rights from within the walls of the Penal Farm in Memphis. 

May 2, 2019 is the next court date scheduled and will be in Judge Campbell’s Courtroom.  Judge Carter and Judge Lammey are recused from the case.

A very in depth article has been published at “MemphisTruth.Org” in which Thorne Peters ordeal thus far has been featured.  I encourage everyone to view it.

“We are political prisoners.  We are having our rights violated by a prohibition.”

“We are consenting adults in a free society, with free will, committing acts of consensual behavior, that are nobody else’s business.  Yet the Government industrial complex, the legal industrial complex, continue to make it their business.”

*Medical Pot – “Why can’t we all have pot?”

*Decriminalized Pot – Where can I buy some legal decriminalized pot?”

“There is no such thing as a non-violent criminal, all crime is violent”

As written in the U.S. Marijuana Party introduction, “More Americans are in jail today for marijuana offenses than at any previous time in American history.”

These people who are unjustly incarcerated are our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children, cousins, other family members and friends.  They do not deserve to be in a cage for a NON CRIME!  We are NOT CRIMINALS!  We are peaceful, law-abiding and loving Citizens who deserve the right to live in peace.

We must do everything we can to help these individuals fight for their own liberty and OURS!

The war will never be over until each and every one of these people are free and have all their rights restored.

Number of people arrested for a marijuana law violation in 2017: 659,700

Cooper, 38, headed off to continue serving his sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for conspiracy to sell marijuana.

TKP Thorne Peters Sits In The ‘Hole’, Over Five Months After His Arrest…

Untitled

#NOMENSREA #IAMTHELAW      “When we all say it we all go free”.

Thorne Peters has authored nine books, and is working on the tenth one from the Shelby County penal farm in Memphis, TN.,  He is a  songwriter, singer,  and human rights activist.   But it seems that they can offer him neither pen nor paper in order to work on his case nor to write his book.

Thorne Peters currently sits in “the hole” at the Memphis penal farm as he fights for everyone’s rights, #NOMENSREA against Cannabis Prohibition.

Thorne Peters entered the public eye in 2009, when he made local news for operating a “420” friendly nightclub in Millington. The self-proclaimed “Poet Laureate of Planet Earth” was an easy target for local media when he turned down a guilty plea and decided to do 19 months in jail while waiting to go to trial  LINK

Below is the latest message from TKP Thorne Peters from the Penal Farm in Memphis Tennessee.  Please listen to his message, and then write him a card or letter (address below), and let him know you are thinking of him, as well as all the others who have been unjustly caught up in the drug war, most notably the war on Cannabis!

Please listen to entire video!

TKP Thorne Peters, Day 39 of 39 Months–For Cannabis? #NoMensRea

He was sentenced to 36 months 100% time and 1 yr 30% time … so 39 months.
Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

NO MENS REA FULLY FREE

Above:  A new book will be coming soon from TKP Thorne Peters!

Coming up on day 40, incarcerated in a Shelby County Tennessee Jail, Thorne Peters is still holding strong for “No Mens Rea”.  By not taking a plea deal and taking his innocence to a jury of his peers, he ended up serving time in a  prison system which has already shown that it is not suitable for humans, or beasts for that matter.

But someone has to do it…

Someone, actually many people, have to bear the burden in order to change the world.  But this person, Thorne Peters, knows how to speak up and write about the injustices that are being inflicted, right now,  against so many innocent people.  He is not afraid to confront them and has proven this over and over, as he sits in a cell in a Memphis Jail.  One thing is for sure, when he walks out of prison, we will be one step closer to repeal of prohibition!  Because he took the time and the torment of fighting the system all the way through to the end.

No one should ever go to jail for a plant! #NoMensRea

While speaking with Lady L today via Messenger I asked her to tell me the most important points to date that she wishes to be known and this was her reply:

WHY is there an eight year conspiracy documented at his website, that THEY, THE AUTHORITIES, REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE…. EVEN though there is dead band handed in evidence of their own corruption given as evidence against TKP that turn out to be           perjured, falsified etc.????  Go to thornepeters.com, and on the front page click on conspiracy….

It goes back for years. No one in power will address it even though it has been handed in to every judge in his trial since Carolyn Wade Blackett. The first black criminal court judge in Shelby County. Cited conflict of interest and gave his case to the next judge.                        Paula Skahan… a gay judge. lol. You can’t make this stuff up.

Finally … WHY… did it take them three years and twenty three days…. many court dates and multiple judges to take him to trial for less than a pound of pot when he said > It’s my pot I am taking YOU TO TRIAL. Why. when it went to trial did the judge NOT allow him the most basic defense to be put in on the weapon charges. Where does the P.O list your address. J Robert Carter Jr will not      allow the transcripts from trial… yet.

He violated TKP OVER AND OVER DURING TRIAL. CIVIL RIGHTS. OUR RIGHTS ARE BEING DENIED.

It is so long now they have done this the trail of bread crumbs back to DA Amy Weirich and her go to boy J Robert Carter Jr is leaving their brown skid marks all over everything to do with his trial.

Their days are numbered if it ever gets an honest officers eyes on the corruption.  Officer of the court or agency involved with this kind of corruption.


They spend their time on pot heads while the city is wracked with crime. Jim Crow enforced laws…. four to one they arrest American’s of African descent here. Adjusted for population.  For pot.
