Tell FBI Dallas to investigate tampered police video that led to 2005 imprisonment of Roy Adams, Jr.
Our son, Roy Adams Jr., has been in Texas jails since August 5, 2005 -- sentenced to 12 ½ years for intoxication manslaughter -- for the 2004 death of Grapevine Police Officer Darren Medlin. Epilepsy seizure caused the accident (go to justice4royjr.com); wrongfully convicted due to following:
• Euless Police Officer Deana Ramsour: Perjured herself on the stand; her videotape was altered.
• Blood Draw Handling: Tarrant Co. Lead Prosecutor gave instructions to “mark through” TX Dept of Public Safety mailing label and had blood draw taken to Tarrant Co. Medical Examiner’s lab. Blood alcohol content could have been determined at hospital within a couple of hours if expediency was required.
We want the FBI to do their job.
"The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating color of law violations. It’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” to willfully deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure."
During the past 10 years, we asked the FBI (and others asked on our behalf including Civil Rights Leader and 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient Rev. Dr. C. T. Vivian) for help; received different replies, but same answer, NO!.
• 2007 – Based on information provided, cannot be determine if such a violation exists
• 2009 – Did not identify any basis for an FB I investigation
• 2010 – Matters that you brought to our attention do not warrant the initiation of an investigation
• 2015 – Circumstances you describe do not indicate a violation of a federal civil rights statute
Why is this important?
Our son is innocent.
Roy's father who spent more than 35 years in law enforcement (USAF, USPS, Chicago Police Department and DEA) says, "I care deeply for my son and believe we should take any and all necessary steps to ensure he is treated justly. I care deeply for the criminal justice system where I have spent the major part of my life. Last, and certainly not least, I care deeply that a fellow officer has lost his life in the line of duty, serving and protecting his community. I believe the ultimate tribute and testimony to Officer Medlin is to ensure the criminal justice system he served remains a system that the public trusts and respects."
And finally, here's what Rev. Dr. C. T. Vivian wrote.
"I pray that Roy Jr. continues to be strong and I am encouraging you to assist us in seeking justice for Roy Jr. I encourage the FBI to be a visible advocate for justice at all levels, for all people and not “write off” requests like the ones sent to your office by the family of Roy Alvin Adams Jr. It erodes public confidence when the public believes that “justice” can be deemed “unwarranted”.
