The US Elite has its first military trial scheduled for cadet Walter Hamilton (20) of Waterside. Hamilton has been charged with Attempted Wilful Murder, Hiring of a Shadow Operator, Terrorist Threats against cadet Taylor Greenspan,Terrorist Threats against General Orson White, Terrorist Threats against Naval Captain Dover Barton, Terrorist Threats against General of the Army Ralph Rivers, Terrorist Threats against Major General Robert Hill, Attempted Wilful Murder of Major General Robert Hill, Treason Against the UCAS, Theft of Military Supplies, Defacing Government Property and Perjury.
Hamilton Walter is being held without bail at the Waterways Military Compound awaiting the start of his trial on January 14th, 2075 to be overseen by military judge Vice Admiral Wesley Reid and prosecuted by Mr. Perry Mason, Mr. Jack Malone and Lord Gary Swimming with his defence be provided by Mr. Robert Perry. The UCAS government is seeking the death penalty in this case and using the articles of justice within the Uniformed Code of Justice during times of war as their argument. The defence is claiming that Mr. Hamilton miss understood what he was signing up for and was under extreme mental duress during the early training stages.
According to reports from within the US Elite the Criminal Investigation Division lead by Commander Oakley Doyle would uncover a direct link between Hamilton Walter and the hired assassin through bank records and phone records provided to the CI division by I Corps. Hamilton’s attorney is arguing that the evidence has been doctored by I-Corps commander Major Wilhuff Palpatine and his confession was coerced through the use of physical harm and mental trickery on the behalf of Dr. Ben Palpatine.
The Prosecution has provided all documents and recordings of the interview process to the courts and showing that Hamilton freely and openly confessed in disgust fully understanding that he would be hanged once he signed the confession. Hamilton’s lawyer is claiming that he was denied a lawyer during his interview and the confession should be excluded from the trial process.
As of today the honourable Wesley Reid has yet to rule in the favour of the defendant and has scheduled a short date for trial. Hamilton Walter’s parents have been reaching out to the prosecutors office within the US Elite begging for leniency for their son. Currently a spokesman for Lord Gary Swimming states that the seriousness of the crimes the defendant is charged with and that he freely confessed to demand the most extreme of punishments and death by hanging is the only acceptable punishment in this case. They state that any show of leniency will be seen as a window of opportunity for others to follow suit, everyone needs to know that any sort of traitorous actions will be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law.
If Hamilton’s confession is not excluded from evidence than his trial will be short and sweet, seeing the prosecution has an open and shut case and Hamilton will be hanged within two weeks of his sentencing. It seems that the US Elite is following all the proper guidelines within the Military Uniformed Code of Justice and they have properly investigated this case. The Assassin Howard Broward aka Tiny will be facing the death penalty as well when his case goes to trial on January 9th 2075. Broward is as well facing the hangman’s noose for his part in the conspiracy and even with facing execution he openly confessed and provided evidence of Hamilton’s direct involvement. Broward’s lawyer released a statement from his client “If I am going to hang for this, than I will be damned if I hang alone.”
The US Elite’s Judge Advocate Judge Office (JAG) has stated that they have reviewed all the evidence in this case and feel that execution by hanging is proper and fully within the law for both defendants. They are not happy about sending a young man to his death but the punishment fits the crime and they are just doing whats in the best interest of the country and following the written military law.
Hamilton’s parents are requesting that citizens of Seattle phone and email the Criminal Division and the JAG office to request that their son be spared from the gallows and sentenced to life in prison instead. They say that he is a good man that had a mental break and needs to be given a second chance at life, currently the JAG office has refused to reduce the charges nor recommend a lighter sentence for Hamilton.
06/01/2075 – 10/01/2075:
<<<Cadet Hamilton, Walter has changed his plea from innocent to guilty and now awaits his sentencing hearing on January 14th where if Judge T.J Harris could sentence Hamilton Walter to death by hanging or life without parole. The sentence will be based on the testimony from character witnesses provided by the defence and the already presented evidence, his plea and the sentence recommendation from the prosecuting attorney Jack Malone.
In this reporters opinion Cadet Hamilton, Walter will be sentenced to hang for the crimes he plead guilty to; seeing that the US Elite will want to establish a base line and foundation for any future cases. If Hamilton is spared the noose for high treason and his accomplice Broward, Howard who has already been sentenced to hang by his neck until dead by the Honourable Winston Appleton on January 9th, 2075 and his execution date has been set for January 20th at 0800. If Judge Harris is lenient on Hamilton and spares him the noose he will be setting a dangerous precedent moving foreword that the Elite are willing to be lenient on their own.
Though as of the writing of this article the staff from Judge Harris’s office will only publicly state that Judge Harris is considering all the evidence and will not allow emotion or political pressure to sway his sentence. He openly warned the defendant of the risks involved with changing his plea from innocent to guilty and that he will be forgoing any chance of an appeal of the sentence; he was warned that he is facing execution and that he strongly recommended that he take his chances at trial.
Broward, Howard will be the first prisoner to be hanged by the US Elite and it seems that they are taking all cases seriously and as well making sure that the condemned doesn’t linger for long in prison seeing they are making sure that the execution date is within two weeks of the imposed sentence. This means that if Hamilton, Walter is sentenced to hang, he will be juridically hanged before the months out.>>>

<<<The State of Washington will be holding an emergency election on February 1st 2075 for the vacant seat of State Governor. This seat has been vacant since 2045 when Governor Edward Travis was assassinated by members of the Free Bird Terrorist Cell. The UCAS and NAN decided that a political seat of that nature was no longer needed and hence forth absorbed the duties of Governor with the duties of the Mayor of Seattle in 2046. Under Executive Order #23465 The powers of state and city have been separated and the Governors Office is once again opening, this order was under the advisement of Seattle Mayor Mortimer Krieghoff and the other UCAS Governors requesting that Washington State once again be truly recognised as part of the Union.
The NAN Council of Chiefs have openly handed back the land within the state of Washington over to the United States of America in exchange for their tribal lands in Alaska as well to have many of their military forces that are being held as prisoners of war to be released. President River Welsh agreed to the terms with one stipulation and that was if any prisoner being held is a guilty of terror attacks, insect worship, or took part in the Nights of Blood they will be not be freed and they will be executed.
Chief William Redcorn agreed to the terms and as well agreed to hand over any and all Native citizens that have been hiding within the Tribal Lands that have connections to the Great Tragedy and are a danger to the common decency and law of the land. Chief Redcorn took over the council on January 1st 2075 and has a zero tolerance policy for terror attacks against the European Americans and has already begun the mending process by giving back the land taken in Texas. Chief Redcorn wishes for a peaceful resolution with the Sons of Liberty and the new US Military though he fully understands there will be hold outs and he is looking to aid the US Elite and Sons of Liberty any way possible.
Chief Redcorn came to power after being elected in a landslide victory over the more radical chiefs and using the words and teachings of there people about peace and gathering. He as well used the words and message sent by former Sioux Boarder Guard John Graycrow to help further unite the tribes and the people, the war between the tribes and the US has been going on for far to long and has brought shame and disgrace to his people.
Currently the only candidate for Governor is Franklin Quincy Quinn former Overlord Governor of Denver and the Governor of Colorado; his running mate is former Executive Director of the CIA/NSA Wilhuff Palpatine. Palpatine is a veteran of the Inishmore Invasion of 2018 and served with the 401st from 2001 -2018, he as well has been serving the country for quite some time and is part of the Federal Immortality Project. Quinn and Palpatine are the only names on the ballot for Governor and Lt. Governor and with time running out for an opponent it seems that our newest elected officers for the return of Washington State will be US Elite Criminal Investigation Officer Franklin Q Quinn and I-Corps Executive Director Wilhuff Palpatine.
A recent poll of the citizens of Washington State and Seattle have Quinn and Palpatine with a 85% approval rating and the citizens are looking forward to having a proactive government and hope that Quinn and Palpatine will help bring Washington State into the 21st century and improve the economy, infrastructure and be strong enough to stand up to the mega-corporations that enslave their workers with unlivable wages. Quinn has stated that if he becomes the states governor he will work tirelessly during his first eight years to bring an end to legally wage slavery and return the parents to the home after a normal working day with a living wage.>>>
<WE IN THE DEMURE HAVE BLOCKED THIS NEWS BROADCAST AS ITS INFLAMMATORY AND UNTRUE>
At 6:30 PM on Friday the 11th of January a large explosion rocked the town of Waterside destroying the popular matrix cafe the “Node” and causing structural damage to the surrounding buildings; debris was thrown over a mile from the blast site in all directions causing additional catastrophic damage.
Reports from Emergency Personnel and Water Side PD indicate multiple injuries and fatalities from the explosion itself and the debris field. Waterside PD report that they responded to an emergency call from the manager of the Burger Express about possible terrorist activity in the region at 6:15 PM and responded quickly to investigate and prevent any threat to the sanctity and safety of the citizens of Seattle and Waterside.
When police arrived on the scene they were engaged by unknown members of the Harbingers, Ruination and Tribe; Waterside Chief Eric Walters reports with a solemn manner that the family of Waterside Police Department would loose Officer Trevor Brown C-SWAT, Officer Ronald Travis C-Swat, Officer Brian Howell C-Swat, Sargent Kevin Douglas C-SWAT, Detective Greg French, Detective Chuck Noel, LT. Fred Gibbons, Officer Brian Vincent and Captain Leon Eric. During an attempted apprehension of the suspects. Chief Walters stated that Waterside Police Department will not rest till the suspects are identified and arrested for the murdering of the towns peace officers.
Seattle Police District One sent Detectives Rusty Rutherford, Eric Burns, Clark Barnett and Captain Russel Bookman of Homicide and Major Case to cease control of the investigation from Waterside under orders from Commissioner Wesley Reid. Waterside Chief objected to having the case investigated by District One and thanks to Waterside Mayor Christopher McDonald he was able to pull rank and overrule the commissioner and toss the District One Detectives off the case. Captain Bookman was reported to have contacted Seattle Mayor Mortimer Krieghoff in an attempt to regain control of the scene and investigation. Mayor Krieghoff has yet to hand the investigation over to District One and Captain Bookman left the scene frustrated and upset.
When Emergency Personnel arrived on scene they would find multiple terrified citizens within there under garments, and frighted. These citizens reported that they where inside the “Node” before the explosion and had been accosted by runners of the Harbingers, Ruination and Tribe and where forced to strip down by Taylor Greenspan aka Peaches. After the witness striped down he began to execute them with a Colt 911 combat pistol and when the weapon jammed he attacked them with his hockey stick. The scared citizens reported that the grouping of runners where laughing and joking about shooting fish in a barrel when the surviving ones would use the distraction to make an escape attempt; six citizens where murdered at the hands of Taylor Greenspan, two additional bodies where found near Burger Express that had been stabbed according to medical examiners on scene. The bodies suffered extreme damage from the explosion so a direct cause of death is unknown and identification will be nearly impossible.
Waterside Detectives located a witness that had video evidence of Taylor Greenspan breaking in to the “Node” moments before the explosion. The video shows Greenspan firing a Colt 911 into the open doorway before entering the business. The witnesses statement and video evidence lines up with two bodies found thrown from the building from the explosion, that had burns and explosion damage but as well had a bullet wound in the head.
Detectives as well located the remains of Tir Tangier Ambassador Toreador Laquatus and his aids that where in the wreckage of there city car. The Ambassador was in Waterside to speak with Mayor McDonald about a trade agreement that would have been beneficial to both Waterside and the Greater Metro Seattle. According to Mayor McDonald the Ambassador never made it the the meeting as he was killed while on route. Mayor McDonald is calling this the greatest abuse of power by the District One Department seeing many of the officers and detectives are part of the 57th Criminal Investigation Division of the United States Elite and the prime suspect is one of their cadets and member of both the Tribe and Harbingers; also the three teams all share membership within the US Elite and Harbingers and Ruination with Tribe leader Cowboy being as well in Ruination and Mister team leader of Ruination being inside both the Harbingers and the Commander of 57th CI Division.
Mayor McDonald has stated that this was a planned assassination plot that went horribly wrong and ended up killing many innocent civilians and peace officers, while injuring and traumatising many others. This is why the city should never trust the runner and the executive order signed into law by acting Commissioner Anthony DiCane before he fled to the Common Wealth of Boston needs to be over turned. Mayor McDonald is demanding that Taylor Greenspan, Ralph Rivers, Oakley Doyle, Shecky Thompson, Wilhuff Palpatine, Maximilian Yates, Franklin Quinn, Archie Luna, NJ Rivers, Johnathan White, Norman Patton, Jet Kissinger, Arthur Swanson, Deacon Kirby, Howard Crowley, Carol Webster, Victor O’Bannon and Cardwell Doyle all be arrested and charged with 32 counts of First Degree Murder with Special Circumstances. He is also demanding Lt. Rusty Rutherford, Lt Clark Barnett, Sargent Eric Burns, Captain Russel Bookman, Chief of Detectives Benjamin Mathews and Commissioner Wesley Reid be arrested and charged with Conspiracy After the Fact and Obstruction of Justice.
Mayor McDonald is stating that within the Executive Order signed into law by Anthony DiCane it states that if officers of the law are killed when attempting to perform their sworn duty and they are gunned down unprovoked than the “hero’s of the city” have violated the law and can be arrested and charged to the fullest extent of the law. Seeing that Taylor Greenspan is a junior member of the Tribe and Harbingers and cadet of the US Elite his command structure would have been informed of and knowingly involved in the assassination of the elven ambassador. As of the writing of this article Waterside Judge James Krom has signed the arrest warrants for; Taylor Greenspan, Ralph Rivers, Oakley Doyle, Shecky Thompson, Wilhuff Palpatine, Maximilian Yates, Franklin Quinn, Archie Luna, NJ Rivers, Johnathan White, Norman Patton, Jet Kissinger, Arthur Swanson, Deacon Kirby, Howard Crowley, Carol Webster, Victor O’Bannon, Cardwell Doyle, Alva Palpatine, Adolf Gunner, Jamie Surrey, Shelby Malone, Dover Barton, Rusty Rutherford, Clark Barnett, Eric Burns, Russel Bookman, Benjamin Mathews, Wesley Reid, Arthur Crane, Arnold Malone, Brady Krieghoff, T.J Kissinger, Thomas Kissinger, Tudor Yates and Leonard Spectre for direct involvement in a terrorist act and in violation of the Anti Terrorism Act of 2065 as well as multiple counts of First Degree Murder and Attempted Murder.
Mayor McDonald and Chief Walters is confident that the suspects will be apprehended swiftly and without incident and after a swift trial they will be hanged properly for their crimes against the people of Waterside and the Tir. Once we have updates regarding this case and the arrests we will keep you informed and updated.
