Witch: Coakley Kept Innocent Man in Prison to Enhance her Career

I was in my teens when the waves of daycare sex abuse hysteria swept the nation. The case that was closest to us was the Little Rascals case. It was full of absurd accusations, including satanic ritual abuse, murder, and the immolation of children. It was all quite preposterous an an obvious with hunt, but it destroyed lives and people all the same.

Martha Coakley, the woman who would be the next Senator from Massachusetts, played her own role in this dark wave of inquisitions, keeping an innocent man in prison to further her political career.

Danile Weaver reveals Coakley's detestable role in keeping an obviously innocent Gerald Amirault in prison. Coached children with fantastic imaginations accused Amirault of things that simply could not be:

The charges were some of the most heinous ever made. However, they were also ludicrous. Supposedly Gerald dressed up as a clown and assaulted the children in a secret or magic room. Some children claimed to be sodomized with two foot knives and lobsters. Some of the acts allegedly took place on the front lawn in full view of the highway.

And yet, when the Parole Board voted unanimously to pardon Amirault, Coakley did "everything in her power" to keep the innocent man in prison, including sending an assistant DA to oppose his release at the hearing.

Make sure you read the whole article, including the citation from Whores of the Court.

Martha Coakley didn't put Gerald Amirault in prison, but she did everything in her power to keep him there, for what appears to be purely political reasons. That isn't just wrong. That isn't just poor judgment.

That is evil.

I followed these trials in the news. It was evident that there was no crime. These people were accused of having sex with children that were 4 and 5 years of age yet there was no physical evidence of the child having sex. That is impossible. The people prosecuting the case knew that, along with other facts that did not make sense. The whole thing was held to gather with the statememt that children do not lie. On the contray, as has been well established, they lie like dogs and well tell you anything you desire. Everyone associated with this prosecution should be put in jail.

It's even worse than that.

In October 2005, a Somerville police officer living in Melrose raped his 23-month-old niece with a hot object, most likely a curling iron.

Keith Winfield, then 31, told police he was alone with the toddler that day and made additional statements that would ultimately be used to convict him.

But in the aftermath of the crime, a Middlesex County grand jury overseen by Martha Coakley, then the district attorney, investigated without taking action.
It was only after the toddler’s mother filed applications for criminal complaints that Coakley won grand jury indictments charging rape and assault and battery.

Even then, nearly 10 months after the crime, Coakley’s office recommended that Winfield be released on personal recognizance, with no cash bail. He remained free until December 2007, when Coakley’s successor as district attorney won a conviction and two life terms.

WEEI radio filled a half hour segment today with an interview of Gerald Amirault. He spent most of his years in prison in solitary confinement because prison officials worried that as a child molester he wouldn't be safe in the general population. Of course, when they let him mix with other inmates there were no problems. Unlike Coakley, the cons all knew he was an innocent man.

It was heartbreaking.
