"If the judges interpret the laws themselves, and suffer none else to interpret, they may easily make, of the laws, [a shredded] shipman's hose!" - King James I of England, around 1616.

“No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,” Justice Sharwood in Ex Parte Steinman and Hensel, 95 Pa 220, 238-39 (1880).

“This case illustrates to me the serious consequences to the Bar itself of not affording the full protections of the First Amendment to its applicants for admission. For this record shows that [the rejected attorney candidate] has many of the qualities that are needed in the American Bar. It shows not only that [the rejected attorney candidate] has followed a high moral, ethical and patriotic course in all of the activities of his life, but also that he combines these more common virtues with the uncommon virtue of courage to stand by his principles at any cost.

It is such men as these who have most greatly honored the profession of the law. The legal profession will lose much of its nobility and its glory if it is not constantly replenished with lawyers like these. To force the Bar to become a group of thoroughly orthodox, time-serving, government-fearing individuals is to humiliate and degrade it.” In Re Anastaplo, 18 Ill. 2d 182, 163 N.E.2d 429 (1959), cert. granted, 362 U.S. 968 (1960), affirmed over strong dissent, 366 U.S. 82 (1961), Justice Black, Chief Justice Douglas and Justice Brennan, dissenting.

" I do not believe that the practice of law is a "privilege" which empowers Government to deny lawyers their constitutional rights. The mere fact that a lawyer has important responsibilities in society does not require or even permit the State to deprive him of those protections of freedom set out in the Bill of Rights for the precise purpose of insuring the independence of the individual against the Government and those acting for the Government”. Lathrop v Donohue, 367 US 820 (1961), Justice Black, dissenting.

"The legal profession must take great care not to emulate the many occupational groups that have managed to convert licensure from a sharp weapon of public defense into blunt instrument of self-enrichment". Walter Gellhorn, "The Abuse of Occupational Licensing", University of Chicago Law Review, Volume 44 Issue 1, September of 1976.

“Because the law requires that judges no matter how corrupt, who do not act in the clear absence of jurisdiction while performing a judicial act, are immune from suit, former Judge Ciavarella will escape liability for the vast majority of his conduct in this action. This is, to be sure, against the popular will, but it is the very oath which he is alleged to have so indecently, cavalierly, baselessly and willfully violated for personal gain that requires this Court to find him immune from suit”, District Judge A. Richard Caputo in H.T., et al, v. Ciavarella, Jr, et al, Case No. 3:09-cv-00286-ARC in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Document 336, page 18, November 20, 2009. This is about judges who were sentencing kids to juvenile detention for kickbacks.

Barbara O'Sullivan's housefire: why doesn't anybody investigate Ryan Adams or Derek Bowie?

According to a recent report to this blog, Delhi Fire Investigator Dale Downey (phonetic) was asking questions about explosion before the explosion happened, and firefighters refused to approach the house before the explosion happened.

It was also reported to me that Delhi firefighters called the previous owner of the house William Aikens (who sold the house 30 YEARS prior) THE NIGHT OF THE FIRE - Friday to Saturday, April 22 and April 23, 2016.

Coincidentally, the previous owner who sold the house to Barbara 30 years ago is an extremely nosy person and a blood relation of a high-ranking official in the Delaware County Department of Social Services, Susan Aikens, the Deputy Commissioner of the Delaware County Department of Social Services.

Here is the snapshot of Susan Aikens' LinkedIn profile as of today:

Here is Susan Aikens' salary for several years at Delaware County DSS:

I personally established, through discovery and admissions by Delaware County then-attorney for Social Services and now County Attorney Porter Kirkwood that Bill Aikens is Susan Aikens' blood relative.

Also quite "coincidentally", as the snippet from discovery shows, Bill Aikens is also our next-door neighbor in Delhi, NY who was consulted, along with this wife Wanda, as a witness when Delaware County Department of Social Services fabricated the (now dismissed) child neglect protective charges against me and my husband after I made a motion to recuse Carl F. Becker on behalf of a client that had nothing to do with me personally, an arms-length attorney-client relationship.  

I made a motion to recuse Carl F. Becker on August 31, 2009, I have a copy on file, in a named case that I cannot disclose because of privacy issues of my client, because, according to two opinions of theNew York State Committee on Judicial Ethics, this one and this one, that I provided in support of the motion, a judge may not preside WITHOUT DISCLOSURE over a case where his former longtime client is a party or a witness.

I made the motion in a child neglect case of a client who was not my friend or relative, or any kind of social connection, it was a purely professional responsibility to make that motion that I took seriously.

And, I was slapped for my efforts with a child neglect charge of my own and police and social services at the door of my law office asking me whether they can "look around" (search my home law office).

At a deposition, the former Commissioner Bill Moon testified that the charges wouldn't have been brought "had you opened THAT DOOR" (had I allowed the illegal warrantless search of our then-home law office containing confidential files of clients going back years, including files in opposition to criminal and social services cases).

When I did discovery in the case, I got case notes.

In the case notes, I found out that, despite the fact that the Deputy Commissioner of the Petitioner was Susan Aikens, they used her blood relative Bill Aikens as a witness against me - who spread rumors in those casenotes (same as commentators are doing here on this blog against Barbara).

Child neglect charges could not even be brought against me (not to mention that they were fabricated, and dismissed after two years of litigation and a full discovery and trial) because the Petitioner was disqualified by using blood relatives of his Deputy Commissioner as witnesses against me.

But, where did Delaware County officials stop from a conflict of interest - especially when somebody they hate is involved?

So, as far as Barbara's case is concerned, it is RUMORS firefighters were seeking from Bill Aikens on the night of the housefire instead of doing their jobs.

And I am sure Bill Aikens obliged and gave them some rumors, he is good at it, as I learnt from discovery in my now dismissed child neglect case.

And, talking to Bill Aikens on the night of the fire was the equivalent of talking to the Delaware County Department of Social Services on the night of the fire - that same Department that Barbara sued in federal court.

Which is - especially coupled with personal involvement in this case and threats made against me by the Department's employee Sharon Reichert-Morgan - is getting more and more interesting.

Since any number of changes could be made to the house over 30 years, and Barbara was on the property and available to give layout of the house, and was doing it, the call to that prior owner made no sense.

When I was searching the database of for the name Aikens - I found one more most interesting coincidence, Winston J. Aikens, a long-time employee of New York State Insurance Department:

And this coincidence, Anne Aikens, a long-time highly-paid "general employee" of Delaware County:

Here is a picture of Anne Aikens, of Delhi, NY, from her Facebook page, to show who that is:

And, there is an Aikens Arlene from New York State Law Department.

And, there is an Aikens Cathy, a long time employee of "Children's Services Administration" whose salary has skyrocketed from $10,000 in 2008 to over $70,000 in 2015.

And, there is an Aikens Donna, a "licensed practical nurse" working in "Mental Retardation" with the State of New York.

Just coincidences, I am sure.

Nothing that a few questions in discovery would not clarify.

But, the connection between questions about insurance, a call on the night of the fire to Bill Aikens, and a Winston Aikens working for the NYS Insurance Department is most interesting.

DFD Fire Inspector Dale Downer, reportedly, continues to go around and ask people - but not Barbara herself - whether Barbara had insurance on the house. 

So, the plan, especially with Sharon Reichert-Morgan's clear accusations that Barbara has burnt the house to get insurance, is clear - to frame Barbara in insurance fraud.

And, a couple of people who are likely local confidential informants (I know the names, and I know the connections making me believe they are CIs) tried to approach Barbara and her family members for information whether, once again, she had insurance on the house and whether she paid for the house to the previous owner - again, she bought the house over 30 years ago.

So, nothing like trying to frame a critic of governmental misconduct one way or another.

And nothing like not even trying to investigate who could have been attempting to kill her and her daughter and to burn her house.

There are several people who were actually sued for acts of violence against Barbara O'Sullivan in the past.

Ryan Adams, father of Barbara O'Sullivan's grandchild, was sued for assault on Barbara O'Sullivan.

Ryan Adams then was prosecuted in a criminal proceeding in Delhi Town Court for making a death threat against her over the phone in 2010.

The death threat case was ACD'd (adjourned in contemplation of dismissal and then dismissed) against Barbara's objections by Carl Becker's then-undisclosed law partner who is now running for DA, John Hubbard.

I still have on file a whole library of telephone recordings of Ryan Adams where he is extremely abusive to Barbara's daughter.

Ryan Adams was just held in contempt of court in North Carolina, on March 31, 2016.  

There was a domestic episode in Pennsylvania where Ryan Adams did something so bad that his usually loyal wife called the authorities, ran from home with two babies in tow and called the same Barbara O'Sullivan WHO SHE HATES to report to her that Barbara's granddaughter remained with Ryan because the police did not let the wife take her since she was only a stepdaughter, and she had no legal right of custody to her.

Something REALLY REALLY BAD happened that night for the wife to do that.

Nobody investigated that either.

But, the fact of the domestic episode is reflected in court papers in Pennsylvania.

That man is out of control.

Barbara's daughter stated in court papers which I filed on her behalf that Ryan Adams was choking her when they were living together, and that he had night-vision goggles to watch what was going on around the house.

The same house that burnt.

He lived there.

He knows it very well.

He worked for years in charge of some military storage facility, so he may have had access to sophisticated weaponry.

Despite being married and having 3 or 4 children in his new marriage, judging by the recording phone conversations with Barbara's daughter, he is still bitterly jealous of her.

He went off the hook when he saw her in a relationship.

He could have attempted to kill her out of jealousy.

He had motive, opportunity, funds and knowledge to do it himself or arrange for somebody else to do it.

The explosive flaming projectile that was thrown inside the house has landed on Barbara's daughter's bed, specifically on her bed.

Nobody is investigating.

Another person who is out of control is Derek Bowie.

He already tried to kill Barbara O'Sullivan with a police vehicle on September 5, 2014, Barbara is suing him for that, and Delaware County, according to his deposition in another case, is "100% behind him", HIM, and is funding his legal defense.

And is not prosecuting him - because his uncle works in the Delaware County District Attorney's office.

Derek Bowie is also sued by a woman looking similar to Barbara, Kylie Smith, in federal court, for assault, battery, unlawful imprisonment.

Through a deposition in that lawsuit it has become known that Derek Bowie also reportedly killed a dog by beating it to death.

He tasered Barbara's daughter's dog, and beaten it.

And asked Judge Gumo to euthanize the dog, the witness of his misconduct who can "identify" him by choosing him out of a lineup of officers who have never been to Barbara's house.

That dog was nearly killed by Derek Bowie.

Derek Bowie asked the Delhi Town court to euthanize him when the dog survived.

Two dogs have been killed since Barbara's charges were dismissed.

One under suspicious circumstances, 2 weeks after dismissal of her charges.

One in house fire - and the other two she saved, but could very well not been able to.

No investigation as to those men, is there?


Because one is entrenched into the local government by blood ties, and the other pretends to be a U.S. Marine?

And because Barbara sued the local government, is suing a local cop who has half of his family employed somewhere in Delaware County, and that's why SHE is to blame.

And SHE is being prosecuted.

And SHE is being framed, again and again.


I do not say Derek Bowie or Ryan Adams DID IT.

I am saying there is enough evidence to INVESTIGATE THE CONNECTION, and no effort is being done in that direction.

Because of the APPARENT conflicts of interest involved.

Instead of investigating possible and likely act of terrible violence against Barbara, her daughter, their pets and destruction of their property, same as in the criminal case that was just dismissed against Barbara, the focus is not on the perpetrator of the crime, but on the victim.  

Blame the victim to distract attention from the possible real culprits.
