Dershowitz : “Decent man”? New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance

[ article under review ]


3“Cyrus Roberts Vance Jr. (born June 14, 1954) is the incumbent New York County District Attorney (Manhattan), and was previously a principal at the law firm of Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason, Anello & Bohrer, P.C. He is the son of the late Cyrus Vance, former Secretary of State under President Jimmy Carter. He is known as an outspoken critic of encryption of mobile devices.” [Cyrus Vance Jr. – Wikipedia]

“New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance, a decent man, has justified his transfer by invoking the cliché that no one is above the law. But what does that have to do with this decision?”

Mr. Dershowitz think about what you are writing, please.

I know the name of the game in Prosecutors Offices around the country is flattery and then flatter the flatterer. However, such flattery is one of the cancers destroying the health of justice in the United States legal system.1For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. Romans 16:18

One cannot do all the things you write about and be a “decent” prosecutor or judge at the same time. In fact, where I am going that is called the sin of hypocrisy, which makes one mighty worthy of hell.

These are not “decent” individuals you are dealing with as “decent” folks do not say and do what they did.

Indeed, these are Prosecutors and Judges in dire need of serious soul-searching and repentance. For one day, these “decent” individuals will descend where they do not want to go and for which there is no escape.

Those you call “decent” are thornbushes and briers that will if you keep flattering them overtake the good garden of Justice.

No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit.

People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

Luke 6:43-45

“Decent” men do not use clichés, Mr. Alan Dershowitz, when it comes to matters and concepts of Justice.

Alan Dershowitz “decent” individuals do not send anyone to Rikers prison.

“Decent” individuals do not bastardize words like “no one is above the law” when everyone knows Prosecutors have placed themselves above The Law.

“Decent” Judges and Prosecutors do not use mental torture to soften any defendant up before a trial.

“Decent” Prosecutors do not fain concern for personal safety while placing an individual in harm’s way.

“Decent” Prosecutors do not allow Judges or The State to selective use prisons as a means of political punishment.

“Decent” Prosecutors or Attorney Generals do not respond to, or create situations for political votes.

But wisdom is proved to be right by what it does.

Luke 7:35

Finally, but not least, “decent” individuals do not commit crimes in the name of The Law.

With all due respect for your hard work Alan Dershowitz you really should get a better class of friends.

Alan Dershowitz quite the “decent man” you have here when it comes to respecting individual personal privacy as “He is known as an outspoken critic of encryption of mobile devices” [Cyrus Vance Jr. – Wikipedia]

The corruption of Prosecutor Offices is so wide-spread that what is considered normal actions by Prosecutors is down-right criminal acts masquerading as The Law.

From Seattle’s own Prosecutor Dan Satterberg  who attacks Christians to New York’s Central Park Five the contempt Prosecutors have for Justice, and Law is undercutting the safety of us all.

Prosecutors have lied to us with their “public safety” words uprooting and replacing justice with the thorn-bushes of injustice.

You have plowed wickedness,
you have reaped injustice, you have eaten the fruit of lies.
Because you have trusted in your power
and in the multitude of your warriors,

Hosea 10:13

4“Alan Morton Dershowitz (/ˈdɜːrʃəwɪts/; born September 1, 1938) is an American lawyer and academic. He is a scholar of United States constitutional law and criminal law[1][2] and a noted civil libertarian.[1][3] He began his teaching career at Harvard Law School where, in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history. He held the Felix Frankfurter professorship there from 1993[4] until his retirement in December 2013,[5] and has been a regular media contributor, political commentator, and legal analyst. He is also a prominent voice on the Arab–Israeli conflict and has written a number of books on the subject. Dershowitz has been involved in a number of high-profile legal cases.[6] As a criminal appellate lawyer, he won 13 of the 15 murder and attempted murder cases which he had handled,[7] and has represented a series of celebrity clients, including Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, and Jim Bakker. His most notable cases included the successful appeal of Claus von Bülow’s 1982 conviction for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny, and the 1995 O. J. Simpson murder trial, in which he served on the legal “Dream Team”, alongside Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey, as an appellate adviser.[8] Dershowitz is the author of a number of books about politics and the law, including Reversal of Fortune: Inside the von Bülow Case (1985), the basis of the 1990 film; Chutzpah (1991); Reasonable Doubts: The Criminal Justice System and the O.J. Simpson Case (1996); The Case for Israel (2003); Rights From Wrongs: A Secular Theory of the Origins of Rights (2004); and The Case for Peace (2005). His two most recent works were both published in 2018: The Case Against Impeaching Trump and The Case Against BDS: Why Singling Out Israel for Boycott is Anti-Semitic” [Alan Dershowitz – Wikipedia]

“New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance, a decent man, has justified his transfer by invoking the cliché that no one is above the law. But what does that have to do with this decision?

In my experience, defendants serving time in federal prisons for federal crimes who are then indicted for state crimes are not usually transferred to Rikers until the eve of their state trials.

Manafort is being treated differently and more harshly because of his past connections to President Trump and the fear that Trump will exercise his constitutional authority to pardon Manafort.

If that is the reason he is being transferred, it makes no sense. Manafort is already under state indictment. If Trump were to pardon him, he could be immediately arrested and brought to New York, where he would have the right to seek release on bail for the non-violent New York crime of which he is presumed innocent.

It certainly appears as if New York is punishing Manafort for his association with Trump.”

“Manafort is being treated differently and more harshly because of his past connections to President Trump and the fear that Trump will exercise his constitutional authority to pardon Manafort.

It certainly appears as if New York is punishing Manafort for his association with Trump.

Judge T.S. Ellis, who presided over Manafort’s first trial, understood that he was not the real object of the special prosecutor. He was being charged in order to get him to “sing” against the real object of the investigation: namely resident Trump.

Judge Ellis also pointed out the dangers of putting such pressure on a potential witness: sometimes they not only sing, they also “compose.”

Perhaps that is the real reason behind the decision to transfer Manafort: the DA hopes that he might be motivated to provide evidence of state crimes for which Trump could be charged.

The law is unclear as to whether a sitting president can be indicted and /or tried for a state, as distinguished from a federal, crime. So when Vance says that no one is above the law, he may be referring to Trump rather than Manafort.

Whatever the reason for the transfer, it seems like the selective application of the law for partisan purposes. The tactic of squeezing a potential witness by making his imprisonment unbearably harsh is generally reserved for mafioso, terrorists and other violent criminals who may have evidence against their bosses.”

“It is yet another example of the weaponization of the criminal process for partisan advantage,” defense attorney Alan Dershowitz wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. The Harvard Law professor emeritus speculated that Manhattan prosecutors are intentionally putting Manafort in tough conditions in order to prod him to work with them as state officials investigate President Trump.

“Manafort is facing white-collar charges, and Dershowitz argued that sending him to the same facility that housed the “Son of Sam” and John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman is inappropriate: “The tactic of squeezing a potential witness by making his imprisonment unbearably harsh is generally reserved for mafioso, terrorists and other violent criminals who may have evidence against their bosses.”

Scott Hechinger, a public defender in Brooklyn, also criticized the decision.

“Rikers Island & Solitary Confinement are both tortures *no one* should be subjected to,” Hechinger tweeted Tuesday. “By supporting solitary for Manafort, we support an immoral, barbaric, cruel & unusual practice. Torture w/ long lasting, debilitating mental health consequences. And solitary for one means solitary is available for all.””
