!Urgent! FReep ALERT. Ranch Rescue member still jailed.
Nugeboards ^ | 02-04-03 | Ranch Rescue Member(unk)

Posted on 04/02/2003 12:47:24 AM PST by Stopislamnow


(The Sheriff is mad because someone called his office and referred to them with the nickname we've given them of "The Texas Taliban"!)


Our legal representative has provided the following update:

The District Judge Alejandro (Alex) Gabert was very complimentary to our Legal Advisor (name withheld at this time) for his outstanding Habeas Corpus work, which is what we have done here. In fact, he was obscenely complimentary. The Judge dragged both the Asst. D.A. (Rudy Gutierrez), and HIS boss, the D.A.- (Herbie Silva), into the courtroom for their evidence for keeping our man in lock-up. Our Legal Representative told Jack Foote he would not even dignify their performance in the courtroom, as their defense was abysmally poor.

For five hours, prior to an audience with the judge, our Legal Representative, and others, went from dept. to agency to dept. to agency getting the background paperwork to accompany the writ of Habeas Corpus. The county is literally reeling from anxiety and many of the employees who had to provide this paperwork/make copies, etc. were visibly shaken, and visibly shaking, with the stress of our men's appearance at their offices. Bear in mind that the law in South Texas is a Patriarchal institution that makes its own rules separate from the laws of this nation and constitution. They work freely in their corruption and were not prepared, in the least, for our writ of Habeas Corpus.

The bad news is that the Judge would not accept the H.Corpus based on our Legal Rep. not being an Attorney and because our jailed R.R. member did not authorize the writ! (It is not necessary to be an attorney to file Habeas Corpus for another individual. That is well stated in law and our Legal Representative has successfully filed writs of H.C. 100's of times in the past.) We believe the Judge did this to kick it out of his district and into the higher courts. He does not want to make the decision to accept the writ to appease his constituents, but instead has forced it into a court of appeals in the 4th Supreme Judicial Court of San Antonio! The Judge truly seemed to be a fair minded man, experienced and thoughtful in his decision to get it out of Hogg County. The reason for the appeal is to force this lower court to accept the writ from our non-attorney. Which just means that the higher court is going to force the lower court to accept the writ. It puts the responsibility on a Judge OUT OF THE COUNTY where the corruption has taken place. Not a bad move for Hogg County, but will now take a couple more weeks of work.

The impression of our representative is that the corrupt D.A.'s have every intention of removing bail options for Casey Nethercott. They now have upped the ante and have pinned no less than 4 charges against him!!! They do not want him released!!! They claim they have the two illegals in custody also.

CASEY NETHERCOTT IS NOW BEING HELD AS A HOSTAGE IN MANY RESPECTS. His County Appointed Attorney will not see him, so he only has his RR California Coordinator, Stacy Polk, to talk with at night when he gets his one phone call. He has no one else to talk with, no T.V., not even reading materials. He has a cell to sit in ... day & night. To hire an attorney is going to cost lots more than we have in our RR LDF. (see info at:


They are using Casey as their POSTER CHILD FOR ABUSE OF POWER IN SOUTHERN TEXAS!! They do not want him out.

We need someone to organize a protest in front of the jail where he's at. That HAS to be organized by folks in Texas. It can't be done from various states further away. We need a Pastor, or Priest, to try to get in and visit him. He's not doing well emotionally at this time. We're very concerned for his personal safety also.

Jack Foote, RR Nat'l Spokesman & TX Coordinator will be going on KTXS Ch. 12 to tell this story.


We need you to call, call, call, call, call. Demand that they release Casey Nethercott, or at the very least, allow him visiting privileges. Demand justice for these innocent men, especially for Casey who is still in solitary confinement!!!

Show respect when contacting this Judge and/or his office - No exceptions!!! We have to deal with him in the future!

Demand an investigation into fraudulent arrest charges and illegal detention of an innocent American who has been denied their due process of law, and violation of constitutional rights.

1 ) Cty. appointed Attorney (Ramos) that has refused to consult with our men based on his lie that our men refused his services. That never happened. HENCE, NO LEGAL REPRESENTATION!

2 ) Lies from the D.A.'s office that our men admitted guilt!

3 ) Promises to release our men if Operation was abandoned. IT WAS...They WEREN'T!

4 ) No medications for 24-48 hours. Both men take daily prescription meds. Casey began bleeding from the mouth on the 2nd day of no medical treatment and had to be hospitalized due to the severity of his condition.

5 ) Our men didn't know what they were charged with for the first 24 hours.

6 ) No outside calls were allowed for days after they were arrested.

7 ) Solitary Confinement

8 ) Our men were told that the Landowner claimed he did not give our men approval to be on his land. Another lie.

9 ) Were charged with Aggravated Assault when we have documented the detention and safe release of male and female w/out harm. (view documentation online at:

It would help to know what the heck you were talking

Two volunteers helping a southern Texas rancher protect his property from a wave of illegal immigrants were arrested by Texas Rangers yesterday on an accusation brought by a couple apparently from El Salvador.

Casey Nethercott and Hank Conner, members of the citizens' group Ranch Rescue, are in the Jim Hogg County jail in Hebbronville, Texas, for allegedly pistol-whipping two illegal aliens they helped detain in the early morning hours, just after midnight

Looks to me like some county officials don't like the fact that illegals are being caught and sent back.

Opens alot of possibilities, coyotes and kickbacks, drug smugglers and kickbacks. Fed involvement? Whatever is going on down there isn't very American. Thats for sure.

If you look into the backgrounds of all the so-called 'Americans' wearing the name of attorney or sheriff there, you'll find massive collusion with drug smugglers and human smugglers.

All that is happening here is a hostage taking by men who are loyal to a foreign power.

This is a prime example of what happens when the illegals and their offspring get the electoral drop on real citizens in any jurisdiction. I have no idea whether this man on the bench is an old-time Mexican American or one of the new breed of "latino" scumbags who now infest the SW, and elsewhere, goddamit.

But the hijodeputa's actions from the bench in a matter which could have been easily resolved certainly speak volumes.

Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious charge! Why are we supposed to help Nethercott and Conner? Are they residents of Hogg county?

Nethercott Moved To Maximum Security Prison!
Ranch Rescue Level 3 "FOOTE" Note

(disseminate to Coordinators/ Members / General Public)

- Casey Nethercott Moved to Maximum Security Prison -

Casey has been moved again - this time from Solitary Confinement in Falfurrias to a Maximum Security Prison. We are trying to find out the exact name, but it is something like "Star Center". This is at least the 4th move in just over two weeks. At one point, he was in a jail in San Antonio, some 4 hours away from Jim Hogg County where the ordeal began.

He is in a cell with a mattress on the floor on the same block as death row. Please note: He is not on death row, but on the same block as death row. Casey gets a 5 min. phone call but other than that, he has NO contact with the outside world, has not been allowed visitors from day one, not even from Religious counsel nor is he permitted a Bible.

Just prior to being transported to his yet undisclosed Maximum Security Prison, Casey was interrogated by "officers" that he has never seen before. None of them were wearing identification badges, insignias or name tags. He was interrogated at great length. Upon transport, as well as being handcuffed and shackled, Casey had a bag placed over his head. Upon arrival at his new location of incarceration, Casey noted that at the end of his cell row, on the far wall, hangs a large Mexican Flag

Casey Nethercott suffers from a pancreatic disorder yet his insulin has been taken away from him...again! He has about three days before the lack of insulin starts to kill him. You may recall that this was also denied him during the first 48 hours of his incarceration which resulted in bleeding from the mouth and Casey had to be hospitalized for several days.

A minister was enroute to Falfurrias to demand a visit with Casey Nethercott and host a live radio broadcast outside the prison if the request was denied (which we knew it would be).

This might possibly explain the reason for the sudden move to an undisclosed Maximum Security Prison.

Will keep you apprised of the details as we have them, but we need to find out for certain exactly where Casey has been taken and we need to bring this abuse to the attention of the public!

The results of the secretly held Grand Jury Indictment are not forth-coming. Ranch Rescue is being turned away and given the typical bureaucratic run-around each time any of us attempt to obtain this info which is a matter of PUBLIC RECORD! We cannot even get one state's Superior Court to work with another in obtaining these results for us. The lawyers have networked with one another to shut down the flow of information and Habeas Corpus has been denied as well.

All this, despite the documented, written testimony and filmed coverage of the events from beginning to end as they unfolded during the onset of OP FALCON by the visiting French Journalist, Eric Boye

With great cause, we have dubbed the corrupt Sherrif, the dirty DA and the Texas Ranger operating in Jim Hogg County: "The Texas Taliban"...apparently this moniker will be extended to include yet many more before this saga ends for it is apparent that these trumped up charges (which are now up to 4) are meant to shut Ranch Rescue down because its VOLUNTEER CIVILIAN members are doing what the PAID SPECIALIZED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES CANNOT OR WILL NOT DO!

Steadfast & True - Onward, Upward & Forever Forward...
