To: Judge Mazur From: Andre Austin Date: December 13, 2009 Subject: Re: Russell Nicks & I Court office appearance Dear Judge Mazur: I regret that you have no “independent recollection” of your emotional outburst in your office while I was assisting my 95 year old great uncle. Usually peoples memory stay intact with extreme emotional events of sadness or anger. I tell you I will never forget it. It seems to me Judge that you have a hair-triggered emotional rage eager to shoot it off primarily at defendants. The balancing scales I know aren’t on my side when I was in your office. I know you have All-power to loose your cool, your temper and rage. But I, Oh no, I could not respond to you in like manner. If I lost my composer or decorum my liberty would be in jeopardy. This is the game: People with authority can overreact, provoke, be confrontational and launch an unjust preemptive emotional strike to tempt a peasant. But I knew my place and which side the scales leaned on so I kept my cool. Because in reality it doesn’t matter how you treated me; it only matters on how I respond to a hair-triggered emotional rage of mistreatment. The minute I walked into your court office I was irate. I had just spent 10-15 minutes walking with an elderly person with his baby walker to aide his strength to find the multi-million dollar corporation (Sears) and their multimillion dollar attorneys for the Plaintiff absent. They were allowed to sit at their office for a telephone conference while this needed luxury wasn’t bestowed upon my uncle who is weak at his legs with gout in his feet and other aliments. I was in rage about this but had the jurist prudence to keep it to myself. Then to add insult to injury you the Chief Judge of the district court felt the need to yell and scream at me because, (as f I done some criminal act), I had to stand up to get a notepad and pen to take notes of the proceeding. Something is very wrong here sir. I felt like that African immigrant in New York who pulled his wallet from his back pants and the police had their hair-triggered response. Were you upset and angry that we contested the Plaintiff’s lawsuit. I know that 99% of these lawsuit’s the defendants submit, don’t respond and fall into default judgment. With this being the usually course of business you probably objected to us being out of the norm? With you disrespecting me it puts a cool stain on the court reputation of not tolerating a defendant in civil or criminal matters protesting. Mistreatment like yours creates a cause and effect of people not wanting to participate in the justice system. I made a vow to myself to document and express my feelings towards injustice, mistreatment or anything that was wrong. Write it down and let the other side know how I feel. This could be the criminal justice system, A School board, A hospital, An employer or any individual or group providing public or private services.
