"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.

Delaware County (NY) confirmed it illegally experimented on children in foster care, with the help of its former County Attorney Porter Kirkwood, and illegally paid experts of Delaware County in litigation

During his election campaign, the former Delaware County Attorney Porter Kirkwood ran his mouth about his "achievements" to the voters - a lot.

For example, Porter Kirkwood has disclosed that he is a member of "death teams" making extrajudicial decisions about medical treatment and end of life of incompetent adults without participation of courts.

Also, Porter Kirkwood made a disclosure that the Delaware County involved the notorious (and now dead) psychologist from Albany, "Dr." (he is no medical doctor, just a PhD in psychology) Richard Hamill in "sex offender treatment" of captive children in foster care of Delaware County - where the Delaware County attorney was both an attorney for the children's legal guardian, the Delaware County, and a prosecutor in juvenile proceedings in Delaware County, arranging, without proper consent, for experimental treatment of such children.

In December of 2016, I filed a FOIL request, this one:

I was seeking documents showing:

  1. How the Delaware County paid the numerous experts that the District Attorney's office and the County Attorney's office/DSS hired over the years to testify in criminal and child neglect/abuse proceedings - in many of them, I was the attorney of record and can personally testify that such experts were called by Delaware County officials to testify;
  2. Whether the County has ever paid to a psychologist by the name of Eileen Treacy - who
    1. supported the elections of Judge Gary Rosa, and
    2. whose misconduct has been the reason for a wrongful conviction in New Jersey of Kelly Michaels for 47 years in prison for sexual child abuse, since reversed, and Kelly Michaels exonerated. It is Eileen Treacy's brainwashing of parents and children, and her 8-day-long testimony that got the wrongful conviction of Kelly Michaels for multiple crimes, including impossible ones (a child testified that Kelly Michaels allegedly put a knife up his rectum, with no injury to show for it, after which the child allegedly told Kelly Michaels "thank you");
  3. For contracts with Dr. Hamill regarding his "sex offender treatment program" - the one who "treated" children in foster care in the custody of Delaware County.
  4. Documents proving whether any federal money was used to pay for any of the contracts.
  5. Documents showing whether the New York State health authorities gave permission for treatment of children in foster care through Dr. Hamill's experimental programs (Porter Kirkwood admitted that the program was experimental in his meeting with voters).
Today, I received a response to that FOIL request:


1) same as Delaware County (based on its prior response to my other FOIL request - for the 321 pages of the County's telephone bill to be scanned and sent to my e-mail address) claimed that it has NO INVENTORY OF EQUIPMENT bought with taxpayer money - a good basis for impeachment and criminal prosecution of Treasurer Beverly Shields,

Delaware County does not have ANY accounting for MULTIPLE experts it has hired - and paid - over the years, who testified in criminal and child abuse/neglect proceedings.

You know who hired them?

DA Richard Northrup, who now became a judge - and is likely untouchable from prosecution (who will prosecute him - his longtime friend and colleague John Hubbard, or his own attorney New York State Attorney General who already represented him in many cases?), and Porter Kirkwood who ran from his position as the County Attorney.

But, the most important thing is that - there is NO PERMISSION from the health authorities to engage children in foster care in Delaware County in experimental psychological treatment programs - and never was.

So, Delaware County just confirmed that Porter Kirkwood, in addition to his other "achievements", engaged children in the care of the county into illegal medical/psychological experimentation.

That is, in addition to:

Since no state officials would investigate and prosecute these personages, I wonder whether the FBI that is currently (reportedly) investigating Delaware County, its use of funds, and its Department of Social Services, will pick up this trail.

I will make sure they would.

P.S. Kirkwood resigned on December 21, 2016, claiming that he has left his position of Delaware County attorney - with all its power, and all its legal and illegal perks - for another employment.

New York law requires attorneys to update information about their employment within 30 days of any change in employment, name and/or contact information.

Kirkwood was supposed to re-register with his new place of employment within 30 days of December 21, 2016, his date of resignation.

That day, January 20, 2017, came and passed.

Porter Kirkwood, as of today, January 27, 2017, is still listed as Delaware County Attorney toiling at 111 Main Street Delhi, New York.

Apparently, attorney disciplinary rules are not mandatory for Porter Kirkwood - with his powerful protectors, with all the no-bid contracts he helped secure, with all the taxpayers' money that he helped pass into the wrong hands.

I wonder whether the FBI will finally get him, or will the protectors corrupt even the FBI.

Let's see what happens.

Stay tuned.

Update as of February 1, 2017:  In view of a threat of a defamation lawsuit posted here by an anonymous commentator, claiming that I am spreading "dangerous misinformation", but not pointing out what exactly constitutes misinformation, not providing proof that it is misinformation, here is some information from me, and some policies about how this blog operates and will continue to operate.


  1. Very interesting read. I found that the CPS unit was very corrupt and manipulative and they try to brainwash children. They would ask small children the same question 20 different ways until CPS got the answer they wanted. They are all corrupt and Need to be exposed

  2. Dig a little deeper.. You will find Carl Becker at the root of a lot of the illegal things that happened in Delhi. He didn't even try to hide the fact that he is corrupt.

  3. To "Unknown": If you have a real tip to share, do it, you know my e-mail address, What you said gives me no information whatsoever. I will not waste my time on guessing games.

  4. We all know this isn't right. How do we make it stop? Who can make it stop?

    1. I am doing what I can, but I do not have all the answers.

  5. This county is beyond corrupt! I had spoken to you once before, Tatiana Neroni. A pleasure! I pray that you keep doing what you are doing to expose every single corrupt individual of this county!

  6. If I were implicated in this I would sue for libel. This is not informative, this is dangerous misinformation. You clearly do not even have an understanding of who makes the decisions for children in foster care. You should at least understand the system you're trying to demonize. The title of this "article" is sensational at best; shame on you.

    1. Great. Now I am threatened by an unknown source. Why not post under your own name? And, if you think I "misunderstood" something about "who makes the decisions for children in foster care", which you may know better, why wouldn't you enlighten me? As to your threats, (1) opinions are not defamation, (2) truth is an absolute defense.

      As to your claim that I do not understand, the unenlightened person that I am, "who makes decisions about children in foster care", I know the law as to that issue, very well.

      The county is the custodian, and the legal guardian of children in foster care. The County Attorney is the County's advisor, as legal guardian. The County is also the prosecutor of children in his own county's foster care, which is a huge conflict of interest. Hamill was well known for (1) lying to the court to brand people and earn his fee, (2) being a "treating" psychologist of sexual child abuse, and "determining" through his "treatments" and "dianostics" on penile plethysmography, whether a person is a sex offender, where such tests involve (1) making the tested person watch child pornography, which is illegal for anyone in this country to possess, and (2) have that person's penis attached to a machine that measures blood pressure, without disclosure that the "test" returns 100% positive results, making any person tested a pedophile. I managed to get the secret manual of the "procedure" used by Hamill, and I have witnesses who he tried to put throug that "procedure", at over $600 a test. By the way, what was paid to Hamill over the years, and I dont hope that the County will ever truthfully show that money flow, as it so far has hidden its other dirty money deals, that money come from taxpayers, and from my family, too. This county took taxpayer money, took local children into foster care and allowed a sick man, now dead, to experiment on them, at taxpayers' expense - and Kirkwood proudly ranted about it as his achievement. I was outraged that Kirkwood, as the legal advisor to the legal guardian of those children, the County, would allow Hamill near the children with his experiments. Hamill created his client pool by spawning "diagnostic theories" and "treatment programs" for alleged sexually abused children and alleged sex offenders, including the most vulnerable population, the alleged "juvenile sex offenders in foster care", and got money from both populations, with the help of Kirkwood who, as advisor of many years to the social services department, arranged for fabricated sexual child abuse adjudications, with the help of former social services attorney and his own mentor Judge Carl F Becker, and then arranged for Hamill to "diagnose" and "treat" both sides, the "abused" children and the "abusers", especially those in foster care, themselves chikdren in the custody and power of social services led by Kirkwood.

      You are upset because not only you know that I know a lot as to how "decisions are made about children in foster care", and in foster care of Delaware County specifically, but that I am making it public. Had you been honestly outraged by anything I said, and had I said anything untrue, you would have posted under your own name, and pointed out what specifically did I say which is untrue, why, and what proof do you have that it is untrue. After all, I openly post under my own name, and stand by my words. That said, please, be free to provide me proof that what I posted in this article is "dangerous misinformation". I promise you to publish your submissions. Under your real name, please.

  7. How many yrs had this been going on??

    1. I have learnt about it happening in Delaware county, NY, in the fall of 2016, when Kirkwood proudly disclosed it during his judicial election campaign (that he lost). But, countrywise this kind of thing is a multimillion dollar business.
