How would you feel if you were convicted of a crime you did not commit? Would you lie down and do nothing? Would you accept the truth that the judicial system played out for you? Would you fight for the truth? Would you seek justice that isn't there for you? Would you do everything in your power to fight for your freedom? Or would you just allow the judicial system to tear your world apart? These are some of the things that I had to answer in my book Justice or Just Us ...You Decide. Justice or Just Us is an up-close-and-personal account of the inadequacies of the judicial system on racial profiling. No matter what walk of life you come from, this can happen to you. It takes place in Alameda County, California, in the city of Hayward. I was a forty-one-year-old disabled African American woman that was wrongfully accused of a crime I did not commit. Before this happened in my life, my record was clean. The charges were two counts of battery on a couple (man and woman). This couple befriended me, stole from me, lied about me, used me, and wanted to sue me to get money. On their last few days at living above me, they decided to put their plan into action.
I walked out of my house and was dragged into the bushes underneath the stairs at the apartments and beaten by them. As I lay there, I am screaming bloody murder, for they both were beating on my body as I begged someone to call the police; my poor black body was being brutally beaten. The police told them to press charges against me. The Caucasian officer said to me, "How dare you come into my town thinking you can beat up on my white women." At that point, I knew I was in for a long, hard, dragged-out fight of my life. In my story, I will show you the evidence, the transcripts, all paperwork pertaining to this incident, and bring you through the process. All I ask is to look at the evidence and decide for yourself if this was a fair verdict. From the misrepresentation of attorneys to witnesses' testimonies, to the unfair treatment at the hospital, to the inadequate judges in the trial and appeal process, all the way through to the sentencing and home monitoring. This book will take you through from the incident to the trial and beyond.
