Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right
Organized by: Jason Smith
I was ambushed by my in-laws on 08/03/2014. They physically attacked me, my mother and my 3 yr old son with my 6 yr old daughter watching. My father in-law, Carl Ford, formerly worked for the CIA and State Department under various administrations, including George W. Bush. He and his wife Shelia remain close friends of the Cheney family. Needless to say, these people are used to getting what they want and don't tolerate no for an answer. Sadly they have retaliated against me by tearing apart my family. When I turned down their punky offer of $25k as help towards a $350k house they told my wife she was going to be cut from their will because we tithe to a Christian church. We had decided as a family that we could not afford such an expensive home. My in-laws planned this attack so well that when I dialed 911 the police were already on their way. Because I didn't call first neither I or my mother were allowed to press charges. Apparently that's a standing policy in Garland County Arkansas. On 9/25/14 I appeared in court to face charges of assault although I was the victim. I was told that I was guilty until proven innocent. I was offered a plea deal og 6 months probation if I plead no contest to "disorderly conduct". Since I have a hearing on 9/29 to discuss the refusal of my wife to return my children home I regrettfully accepted. My special needs daughter was enrolled to start at a special school here in Montgomery, which took my last bit of savings to pay for. At the last minute the Ford's brought in a "surprise" witness and the prosecutor receded his offer. On the bright side, there was an unknown witness who called the sheriff s deputy on the day of the incident. However we have no name and can't call her to testify. She told the officer that I was innocent and she saw the whole thing from the beginning. I need to raise money for private investigators and additional attorney fees. My bank accounts are frozen by ETrade so I can't even pay my bills. I have $300 in cash to live on until I get my accounts reactivated. I'm a disabled veteran of the USAGE. My left hand is paralyzed and I have severe back pain. I had a spinal fusion in 2010. How could I have attacked two people on my own. My mother was seated with my son in her lap at the time of the attack.
