Skip to comments.You Have the Right to Remain Silent (LT Colonel Lakin Read His Rights)
Posted on 04/13/2010 8:19:14 AM PDT by Man50D
Washington, D.C., April 13, 2010. Army doctor Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin yesterday met with his brigade commander, Col. Gordon R. Roberts, who proceeded to read LTC Lakin his Miranda rights, and who informed LTC Lakin he had the right to remain silent because LTC Lakin is about to be charged with serious crimes. Col. Roberts was at age 19 awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the only recipient of the nations highest honor currently on active duty in the Army.
LTC Lakin had previously been ordered in writing to report yesterday to Ft. Campbell, KY and then on to deploy for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Lakin refused to obey these orders and instead came to work yesterday morning at the Pentagon. Late yesterday afternoon he was confronted by his brigade commander.
Before the meeting was over, LTC Lakins Pentagon Access Pass had been revoked, and his laptop computer was set to be confiscated.
The message to LTC Lakin is clear; through official channels, he was informed yesterday that he will shortly be court-martialled for crimes (specifically, missing movement and conduct unbecoming an officer) that for others has led to lengthy imprisonment at hard labor.
Lakin has announced in a YouTube video that has now been viewed more than 110,000 times that he considers it his duty to refuse to obey orders that would be illegal if President Obama is ineligible to hold office.
Meanwhile, cries mount for proof of that eligibility, but nothing has been forthcoming. The Obama campaign at one point released a copy of computer-generated abstract of information purportedly in Hawaii's records system, but the source of this information is unclear and need not have been a birth certificate issued contemporaneously and signed by the doctor who attended the birth. Even the document released was only a copy, and the version printed in the Los Angeles Times on June 16, 2008 is on a form only in use since late 2001. Even as it is, the document contains a warning that it is merely prima facie--threshold, rebuttable and thus inconclusive --evidence of birth, and the copy the Times printed mysteriously has the certificate number blacked out, thereby rendering the document unusable according to language on the bottom.
Given the seriousness of the offenses with which LTC Lakin is about to be charged, the American Patriot Foundation today renewed its plea for donations to its legal defense fund for LTC Lakin. Details are available at APF's website, www.safeguardourconstitution.com
Obama needs to be removed from office, now.
OK, NOW he’s going to need the legal defense fund.
Our Novembers are all now behind us!
Our Pattons, Pullers, LeMays, etc. are now gone....
LtCol Lakin may be an exception...
And somehow this is relevant...why?
It proves loyalty to his Nation, among countless other things.
They won’t dare. It would expose Obama. Look for them to sweep this under the rug.
And if so, it will be a political disaster for that usurping @ssbite occupying the White House.
AH Obama, just for the cost of $12 measly dollars you can show your genuine long form birth certificate to the public.
Wow! Kinda hard to dismiss this guy. Prayers for him as he's in for a Democrat Socialist spanking.
Re LtCol Lakin...
Yeah...some say he has that “look about him”...
Lt. Col. Lakin took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies...not defend a Usurper or his lackeys. I have fears for this man and for what is planned for him by these same lackeys. WHY will Obummer not come clean and produce his birth certificate? Because he can’t. I hope Lt. Col. Lakin inspires others to follow his lead.
Wrong guy... he’s the one handing on the spanking...
If he is court marshaled then IT IS ON !
Lawyers will have standing to ask for definitive proof barry soetoro is a natural born citizen.
I believe this gives the man “standing”...
I believe Lt. Col Lakin was the officer charged. Col Roberts was just the officer reading him his rights.
Whatever the outcome be it a ruined career, an actual bringing forth of documents related to the validity of the orders or somewhere in between this maybe the closest we’ll come to seeing an answer to the NBC question.
Something will happen to him in the Brig.
LTC knows who he is and how are troops in Iraq and Afghan are being set up to be killed daily because of rules of engagement and Muslim Brotherhood moles now throughout the govt and defense department.
How much intel is being leaked back to the Taliban and Al Queda to kill our troops?
To do what?
I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with that man. I will give him my support through his upcoming ordeal. Let us rally behind a REAL American. Maybe the line has finally been drawn in the sand.
He’s having his rights and liberties taken by the state under the pretense that the CIC is legitimate.
Oh, duh. You're right. Now I understand why someone else posted "why is this relevant to the story?"
What a goofy statement to insert in the article.
Make his case in the courts.
God Bless this man- he’s going to need a lot of prayer.
Whew...this is intense..
As defendant he'll have a ringside seat for that.
To force the B/C issue/evidence.
“Lawyers will have standing to ask for definitive proof barry soetoro is a natural born citizen.”
That’s the plan
If he loses his liberties it's going to be because of violations of Article 87 and Article 133 if the story is correct. I imagine there may be others.
here’s hoping the b-——d in the WH goes down...
Not going to happen. Neither of the charges mentioned in the article involve Obama.
IMHO. YMMV. TWT.
I call BS on this. The Colonel would have read LTC Lakin his Article 32 (investigation) rights under the UCMJ, not Miranda.
NS thinks he has a crystal ball. If Lakin doesn’t get satisfaction in the military justice system, he will have standing to file a suit for wrongful dismissal against Obama and the government.
And if he sues then he can't establish standing because he can't establish a causal relationship between his injury and Obama's actions. He'll go down in flames and it won't change a thing.
I'll say. He's blown his career. God speed.
Prayers for this brave soldier. And he is a soldier of our CONSTITUTION, unlike the Congress and White House who could care less about it.
Lakin will have standing because you say he does? Now who has they crystal ball? Well, let's make sure the judiciary is aware that Red Steel has spoken and has rewritten the definition of standing for them.
Maybe Obama will pardon him before he leaves office...
Guys, you are reading this wrong. The person with the Congressional Medal of Honor awarded at age 19 is the ONE WHO READ THE RIGHTS, not the one standing up to Obama.
EXACTLY!!!!! Pretense, no proof.
And because you NS think he will not have standing? LoL!
You hope the civil courts will protect Obama’s backside as he is tooooooooo big to fail. Those days are rapidly coming to an end for the usurper. I’ve already proved you wrong once in the last 24 hours. We will just have to wait and see...again.
I was wondering that myself. The brigade commander has the authority & responsibility to make the arrest. The decorations that he wears of not part of the equation.
