"An improper denial of a request to proceed pro se at trial is "not amenable to harmless error analysis. The right is either respected or denied;its deprivation cannot be harmless." McKaskle v. Wiggins, 465 U.S. 168, 177 n.8 (1984)
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA; WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2003; A.M. SESSION
THE CLERK: Calling item No. 1, CR 02-350(A), USA
THE COURT: Before anyone begins to make an
appearance of counsel, let me explain how I think we should and
will proceed this morning.
First, I need to recite for the record the fact that
I think on August 25th, which I guesswas two days ago, Judge
Phillips denied the then-last pending -- or so far as I know
last pending motion to recuse me. So I am authorized to carry
out my responsibifities, and I intend to do so.
There are essentially four matters that we need to
address today on the calendar. The first -- and I'm choosing
it first because I think it's practical to do so, and
Killercop requested that it be done this way -- is the
issue of whether he has now returned to, or is at least in the
status of, competence sufficient to proceed to trial. The second question is who will represent him. And
that, obviously, relates to Mr. Nicolaysen's motion to
withdraw. The third, depending on how I rule on that motion,
will be what options remain available to Killercop. And
the fourth will be the trial date.
The broadside against Justice lawyers who defended detainees came from a conservative GOP group. But the group's attack has been widely criticized in the legal community - even by some fellow Republicans - as undercutting basic principles of fairness in the system.
For "Your Defense," Gregory Nicolaysen of afda.org and (NACDL) National Asshole of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Is In The Business Of "Predicting" Your Prison. I am in the business of predicting his capture. And death.
www.afda.org knows that you are the one in a hundred not hip to this shell game.

Killercop : "I want to object to these proceedings. I have not authorized this man to speak for me. If anybody in the courtroom thinks they have authority to speak for me I want to see their authority right now."
We bet those attorneys above don't think Greg is such a computer "expert" after they find out he left lots and lots personal pictures and their personal information on his server open to the public, much like this guy Alex Kozinski Who by the way decided the very appeal that decided that what this guy Greg did above was ok, and that it was "wrong" to fire Greg.
It seems Greg, and the Judge, and even the prosecutor were more then business associated, they were also close friends. It was a trifecta prosecution. Three against one. Pretty bad odds. That's just this man's perspective.

Since there was no law on the books in the Ninth Circuit regarding jurisdiction of the Internet. And therefore the current written law would not fly to grab a power so strong and mighty as to even "shut down and silence the Internet speech of every American Citizen, Gregg and his friends steer this case to create the color of the law. And break it.
Contemptible police tactics - Cops raid the home of a licensed medical marijuana provider in Washington, handcuff the fourteen year old son and put a gun to his head, and search the nineteen year old daughter and take the contents of her mickey-mouse wallet.
How To Survive Traffic Stops in America, Submit, Instantly! - What the cops want is immediate obedience and submission. Many cops are ex-military and view the civilian motorists of America about like they viewed the hapless peasants of Iraq and Afghanistan, that is, with contempt, not as fellow citizens deserving of civility and respect. It is a possibly lethal mistake to do anything other than submit, instantly and obey! Or be ready to shoot first. But aim high.
