Mass support for Shelton in court and in letter writing campaign to stop retaliation against whistle blower
Encourage the press to cover this story of judicial bribery, judicial incompetence or maliciousness, wholesale violation of civil rights in Cook County Courts, and retaliation against a whistle blower. Come to courtroom 506 26oo S California Ave, Chicago, IL, 10:00 AM on Oct. 3, 2014 and every hearing date after this for case 12 CR 22504, where whistle blower and disabled defendant, Dr. Linda Shelton is on trial, having been illegal charged in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for allegedly “touching an officer’s ear and pulling hair” during a PTSD flashback where she cowers, is confused, believes she is being beaten up, and swings her arms around her head to try and protect herself. The officers were informed about her flashbacks and to “back-off” as recommended by her psychiatrist during the flashbacks until she “recovers her equilibrium”, but instead grabbed her, literally lifting her off the ground, and then when she touched the officer innocently, likely due to her medical problems including serious lack of balance and the PTSD, Sheriff staff took advantage of the vague and likely unconstitutional Illinois battery statute to charge Shelton with FELONY battery, which could carry a sentence of 3 to 14 years in prison. This is outrageous, immoral, and unconstitutional. A large grass roots effort is needed to challenge this outrage.
The following is repeated on Shelton’s Facebook page here.

And ask them to help me to make an appointment with an investigator in the FBI/US Attorney’s offices to file criminal complaints. I need mass involvement in order to obtain justice. My property and home, as well as father’s estate for which I am trustee were all stolen to destroy me and shut me up as whistle blower. I live in Oak Lawn, IL.
Please help Linda Shelton to make appointments with the FBI and U. S. Attorney to deal with corrupt judges in Cook County, corrupt peace officers, numerous false arrests in retaliation for her whistle blowing and in violation of the American with Disabilities Act. Her issues cross state lines and expose corruption at the highest political levels in Illinois. She has helped many of us in exposing corruption in the family courts, probate courts, and criminal courts and now she needs our help! She is disabled and her illnesses are making it harder for her to act alone. The theft of her home and money is outrageous and was done by those who had her falsely arrested to get her out of the way so they could do their evil and illegal acts.
The situation involves:
1) forgery and fraud upon the court in making a fraudulent deathbed trust.
Illegal eviction without the sheriff using the Oak Lawn Police – who knew they could not evict without the Sheriff in an eviction case which was DISMISSED – while the eviction case was pending – now they won’t let her into her house without threat of arrest and are selling the house
2) Theft of her personal property and a $2 million estate for which she is trustee transferred to a person in New Jersey and to unscrupulous attorneys taking advantage of this mentally ill person in New Jersey to convert it to attorney fees.
3) Bribery of a probate judge to write an order saying they own the property and can evict her – when ONLY a forcible entry and detainer action can evict someone – or it is an unlawful lockout, breaking and entering, trespass, wrongful conveyance, theft, etc. The probate judge made orders in the probate case on the issue of a trust – which was not before him so he had no jurisdiction!!! This is criminal action by that judge.
4) False arrest for “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback TRIGGERED PURPOSELY BY SHERIFF STAFF – thus a charge of FELONY battery to an officer where they are seeking a 3-14 yr sentence! Shelton is disabled and had a court disability coordinator agreement that the officers would not use info given them to trigger a flashback and if there was a flashback, they would back off while Shelton was confused, cried, cowered and appeared terrified. Instead they grabbed her and carried her to jail, charging her with this fraudulent felony. They are the criminals for violating the agreement. Battery requires intent and they knew there was no intent during a flashback as she was confused and having an altered state of consciousness consistent with a flashback – where she relives in a dream like state attack against her by police where she went into a respiratory arrest.
She need an officer to obtain search warrants and recover her property.
Can you ask the FBI and US Attorney to investigate and to assist as it involves a person in New Jersey – thus crime crosses state lines!
Shelton has documentary evidence to prove all of the above. Of course, the Oak Lawn police won’t arrest themselves.
THANK YOU TO ANYONE WHO WRITES, ATTENDS COURT HEARINGS, OR HELPS ME AND OTHERS FIGHTING COURT CORRUPTION IN ANY WAY!

They also arrested her on an invalid warrant on a case she won the year before, despite her showing them the court order quashing the warrant!
Shelton’s Advocacy against corrupt county courts includes blog posts like this:
The Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board said it is not a bribe.
It happened in my case with Judge Riley – read here.
For too long now, the corrupt in government have been trashing the Constitution and de facto eliminating our Constitutional rights. The 1 % and greedy are abusing the rest of us getting richer while making us poorer, denying education to the masses, denying health care, denying access to knowledge, denying the freedom to speak our mind and the justice of the courts. Multinational corporations now control our governments. Our Constitution has no weight. Our U.S. Supreme Court even refuses to enforce its own rulings. When the courts trash our rights, we no longer have remedy.
ANONYMOUS – a secret society of hackers around the world dedicated to a free and open Internet [able to hack into anything], in response to the murder of Aaron Swartz , an Internet genius and proponent of free access to knowledge paid for by taxpayer dollars, has now decided to use their last resort and act. The line has now been drawn in the sand. They have reluctantly decided to act as a last resort due to the tyrany we now experience.
The Internet War against government corruption has now been unleashed. They have launched the first missile.
I support it. I also ask ANONYMOUS to help us by publicizing the systemic lawlessness of the courts in Cook County and Illinois that I have revealed on this web site.
Please view the video in this link that announces the beginning of the Internet War to reform our corrupt government.
May God Help us! Tyrants in the Cook County Courts and in our government must be exposed, removed, and reform must occur. There is no other option.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us
This is my response to the death of Aaron Swartz [an Internet and computer genius who invented RSS at the age of 14 and founded Reddit, who worked tirelessly for Internet freedom]:
Aaron’s death has devastated me. I and many others before and presently have tried to improve the world by working to right the wrongs that we bump into so annoyingly. Aaron in terms of Internet access to knowledge that our taxes paid for; me to make our courts transparent and information in our court system open to all so that we can bring to the light of day the corruption that is destroying us, most of all destroying children, elderly, families, and those of us who are working so hard, sacrificing so much, and mostly caring about others especially our children’s futures as well as the many before us and after us that will do the same. Yet our own government is used to destroy us in order to keep knowledge, justice, and freedom in the hands of the 1%, as well as in the hands of the corrupt, instead of in the hands of the people. I have also been arrested on fraudulent and excessive charges apparently in efforts to try to shut me up and shut down my blogs. I know exactly how Aaron felt. The hopelessness and despair are hard to fight. I pray that all those who knew Aaron and heard of him will help continue what is a fight, in the case of Aaron and likely soon in my case to the death. I hope his friends will pursue his cause with a vengeance, as well as try to help others, like me and our group of whistle blowers and activists who are seeking to bring more transparency and justice to the world, as well as stop the cover-up of the corruption that is lining the pockets of the corrupt, the connected, and the exclusive 1%, at the expense of the 99%.
If corruption in family courts described in this blog is not enough including diverting funds from VAWA and Social Security Title IV-D to enrich judges, court-appointed attorneys, and court-appointed evaluators, now ADA accommodations are also at risk in the courts, pro se litigants are being deprived of equal protection in the courts, and we are being thrown back into the stone age in Cook County by new rules from Chief Judge Evans. Please remember to demand fix to VAMA funding being diverted for corrupt purposes before passage. Many of our legislators are totally ignorant of what is actually happening with VAWA funds.
Chief Judge Evans enters order which prohibits cell phones in courthouses where criminal matters are heard is acting like Hitler.
Now defendants cannot contact their attorneys when their attorneys are late, cannot contact their families, cannot have their electronic calendars with them when they are representing themselves. The latest Illinois Supreme Court ruling requiring Court Clerks to allow the use of rolling scanning devices to allow persons to avoid huge page copy charges in the Clerk’s offices and in Court libraries are at risk with the bar on bringing in electronic devices. The disabled who need assistance of electronic devices will have to ask for special permission to bring them into court buildings including palm pilots and cell phones. Many disabled persons take public transportation and need to have cell phones with them at all times to contact their doctors or others for assistance. Now they will have to pay $3.00 to put them in tiny lockers at courthouses, but the courthouses don’t have enough little pay lockers to hold all the phones that people will have to lock up, that will no longer be allowed in courthouses.
In domestic and civil matters pro se litigants and their witnesses will be at a disadvantage. This applies in courthouses where there are eviction cases, divorce cases and every other kind of civil case.
If they ban pro se litigants from having these devices, then they should ban the attorneys and judges from having them too so pro se litigants are not at a disadvantage. If judges wants to go back to the stone age, then let everyone do this. Their computer system is already in the stone age so that it is impossible to query so that the courts can cover up their corruption!
Help make a massive protest about this!! Hitler reigns in Cook County. First the right to petition for habeas corpus has been denied, perjury by sheriff deputies is rampant, and my right to notice for a criminal trial, right to have dismissed legally insufficient complaints, right to speedy trial, right to compulsory process, and right to have access to my court file and pen and paper during trial has been eliminated – now this!! See my new post coming soon about my recent misdemeanor conviction where all these rights were denied!
Help spread the word!
