"set-up" Plaintiff, thereby violated Federal and State Law and has destroyed the
public's respect for and belief in Officers and the Law .
Even an untrained Officer knows that crimes are investigated by law
enforcement, not Case Workers without the training and authorization to do legal
elder abuse investigations .
Officer Porter having Faxed his reports to a case worker with Family and
Children Services was deliberated to prevent the proper authorities from doing an
investigation, and to prevent Plaintiff s ability to have legal aid represent him and
protect

Plaintiffs Civil and Constitutional R ights.

"Acts under "color of any law" i nclude acts not only done by federal, state,
or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts
done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful author ity; provided that, in
order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law," the
unlawful acts must be done while such offic ial is purporting or pretend ing to act in
the performance of his/her offic ial dut ies. This definition includes, in addition to
law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges,
Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc ., persons who are bound by laws,
statutes ordinances, or customs ."

"Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to one year, or both,
and if bodily injury results or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or
threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined or
imprisoned up to ten years or both, and if death results, or if such acts include
kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap . . . or an attempt to k ill, shall be fined under th is
title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced

3 . Further, Plaintiff has just recently discovered information that had been
withheld in order to prevent his filing a complaint at an earlier date .
4 . Plaintiff alleges that he has been denied Due Process and Equal Protection :
"Procedural due process requires the opportunity to be heard -this requires notice
and opportunity to be heard . See Cleveland Bd. Of Educ . V. Loudermill, 470 U.S .
532, 542 (1985)" Plaintiff alleges that he was denied Equal Protection - he was

treated differently from similarly situated persons and this treatment was the result
of state action . "(T)o properly plead an equal protection claim, a plaintiff need only
allege that through state action, similarly situated persons have been treated
disparately." Thimen v. Bibb County, Ga ., Sheriff s Dep't. 233 F .3d 1231, 1237
(11 ~' Cir. 2000).

for defending himself.'
7 . Plaintiff has lost personal items, all inheritance, been a victim of grand
larceny . The acts of these defendants were more than grossly negligent or
malicious, the acts were vile and evils, with the intent of harm .
Facts
8. June 4, 2002 Ms . McDonald called EMS for assistance9, Ms . Caffrey was
lying on the floor, claimed to have fallen . Complaint page 12 ¶ 37 .
9 . EMS arrived, Carlock and Beamon and "Hughett", three persons dressed as
and representing paramedics . Stegeman, legal representative of Caffrey, and
neighbor Al Thompson, replaced McDonald at the home . Complaint pg 12 138.

According to reports, at this point, Oarlock called Officer Porter in, claiming

that Plaintiff was preventing examination of Caffrey, complaint page 13, ¶ 40 .
11 . Neither Porter's Family Violence Report 10 nor his "Original Report" have
listed the time the 911 call came in, time of "dispatch, time for "arrival at the

scene", which all hinders in trying to defend oneself in a Court of law, see

complaint's "Exhibit 9".
12 . Ms . Caffrey suffering "Symbolic Disorder", mid to mild cognitive, senility,
dementia was incompetent ." i See complaint Exhibit 4, Exhibit 32 page 1 T 2 a & b .

EMS arrived at hospital, there were only two paramedics Oarlock and Beamon .
Obviously "Hughett's" part was as Fire Dept personnel, with no reason to be at

Caffrey's home, she committed an act beyond her authority, then falsified reports .
Falsified 13 EMS and Police Reports;

open force or violence .
" Bouvier's Dictiona Falsehood : "A willful act or declaration contrary
to truth . It is committed either by the willful act of the party, or by dissimulation,
or by words."
"Falsehood by word is committed when a witness swears to what he knows not to
be true . Falsehood is usually attendant on crime . Roscoe, Cr . Ev. 362 .".
"It is a general rule, that if a witness testifies falsely as to any one material fact, the
whole of his testimony must be rejected but still the jury may consider whether the
wrong statement be of such character, as to entitle the witness to be believed in
other respects . 5 Shep l. R. 267 . See Lie."
"2. B the Act of Congress of April 30 1790, s. 15, 1 Story's L. U. S . 86, it is
enacted, that if any person shall feloniously steal, take away, alter, falsify, or
otherwise avoid, any record, writ, process, or other proceedings in any of the courts
of the United States, by means whereof any judgment shall be reversed, made void,
or not take effect ; or if any person shall acknowledge, or procure to be
acknowledged, . . ., shall be fined not exceeding five thousand dollars, or be

investigated : a) Ms . Caffrey was not "being confined", Ms . Caffrey lived "alone"
b) there were no barriers and she was not locked in, so how was Caffrey confined
and by whom? No supporting evidence to date . c) "Phone" was on kitchen wall,
phone # : 770-469-4840" d) Companions response system was on a table, the light

was on showing it was "active", plugged in and in working condition .
e) "FVR" : Primary Aggressor : left blank; "OR" : Porter : "Mr. Oarlock
stated . . . Mr. Stegeman was being very verbal and would not let them conduct their
examination of Ms . Caffrey"
* Reality: Witness and Ms . Caf&ey both testified at Guardianship hearing
under Oath stated that Plaintiff never even spoke to Caffrey .
The facts are clear . Falsified EMS and Police Reports were intended for use
and have been used for the purpose of Civil and Constitutional Rights violations of
the Plaintiff. Those who have sworn an Oath to protect, abide by the laws and
Constitutions of the United States and The State of Georgia have a total disregard
for the law and have. no fear of charges for their illegal acts .
Plaintiff recently discovered that "Hughett" was at the incident as a Fire
Dept personnel to declare Caffrey's house unsafe, the reason DEKaIb Safety went
directly to the gas stove when they arrived on the scene . Plaintiff until recently
thought that what was meant by "life at risk under nephew's care", was that he was

physically or mentally abusing her, the claim made by Ms . Turner. In fact,
"Hughett" was claiming that Plaintiff would cause his aunt's death from the house
being unsafe itself. "Hughett" is Fire Dept personnel as such could not claim
"abuse", she was claiming neglect or that the house was unsafe and thereby
Plaintiff was going to cause the deathh of his aunt .
Plaintiff has given evidence of falsified documents, allegations that he
planned to kill his aunt, discrimination, lack of concern for the Rights of the
disabled and elderly, violations of Oaths, Rules, Procedures; the policymaker's,
and the defendant's malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance partnered with
extrinsic fraud involved in the violations of the Civil and Constitutional Rights of a
disabled man and caused the death of an elderly incompetent iady .2r
Governor Perdue a final policymaker22, set the policy when her responded to
Plaintiff's pleas for help concerning Stone Mountain Park . It is a "do nothing"
policy . Someone files a complaint asking for help stating they are disabled have

predators to illegally take her from her home .

no money, needs help . Governor Perdue's policy is to tell the complainant
"There's nothing I can do", knowing that a disabled person who has no money can
be ignored with no fear of consequences as final policymaker .
In turn the Sergeant at Stone Mountain City PD also a final policymaker,
knowing that the State's final policymaker has set the policy of ignoring violations
against the disabled, socially and economically disadvantaged Citizens of Georgia,
signs off on a clearly falsified document knowing there will be no consequences to
the action .
The allegations along with the "master plan" of these defendants came close
to having Plaintiff arrested for attempted murder . Had he not borrowed a great
deal of money to fight, he may have gone to prison .
All the while the Plaintiff contacted and complained to everyone and
anyone, the persons who are obligated by federal and state statute and by Oath of
their' Office failed to prevent the illegal wrongs .

shows that State law sovereign immunity and state law limitations on damages "do
not protect local governments from liability under § 1983" and State laws requiring
pre-suit notification prior to initiating an action against the state or it's subdivisions
similarly do not apply .
Plaintiff contacted everyone necessary, some more than once, insisted that
his Civil and Constitutional Rights were being violated, the answer to him was the
same: "I cannot help you", "it's not my job" .

The fact is plainly seen, the Plaintiff either himself or Ms. McDonald, filed
complaints with every possible person, agency, Administration, enforcement
division within the State of Georgia . When all was said and done, the final
policymakers had set the policy : If a person, belonging to a protected class of

persons, has no money, ignore him and he will go away . Policy was set by the
Governor Sonny Perdue, now it is a "custom, policy or rule" .
Furthermore, even untrained Police Officers, Sergeants and EMS personnel
would know the proper authorities to contact for elder abuse or elder neglect ; they
would know that only law enforcement investigators investigate criminal acts and
that DFACS case workers do not have law enforcement personnel that can conduct
criminal investigations .
Facts clearly show that both the disabled Plaintiff and his elderly disabled

"It has long been the law that a plaintiff in federal court can seek to set aside

23 htt :l/diction .law.coml: kidnapping: n. the taking of a person against
his/her will from one place to another under circumstances in which the person so
taken does not have freedom of movement, will, or decision through violence,
force, threat or intimidation . . . .
Abduction : n. the criminal taking away of a person by persuasion, by fraud, or by
open force or violence
Murder: n . the killing of a human being by a sane person, with intent, malice
aforethought and with no legal excuse or authority. In those clear circumstances,
this is first degree murder . By statute, many states consider a killing in which there
is torture, movement of the person before the killing (kidnapping) or it was as an
incident to another crime, to be first degree murder, with or without premeditation
and with malice presumed . Second degree murder is such a killing without
premeditation . Malice in second de ee murder may be implied from a death due
to the reckless lack of concern for the life of others
