Defendant Horge Tells SDNY Judge Swain of Stabbings In MCC Computers Unsuited for Discovery

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 19 – Defendant Ernest Horge on December 19 said in open court that there are stabbings in the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

 His court appointed lawyer Matthew D. Myers described non-functional computers to review discovery in the MCC, requiring him to print out nine inches of documents from a hard drive the US Attorney's Office provided him.

   U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Laura Taylor Swain, who has also received handwritten letters from Horge's family members and filed them in the docket after redacting children's names, patiently asked Horge about his medication.

   But Horge had more to say. He insisted that the gun was found in someone else's room, in someone else's apartment.

     He said the prosecutors, here represented by AUSA Frank Balsamello, were just "using 924(c) as a bargaining tool." He said everybody loves him, he has a great sense of humor. He rhymed Prosecutors lying and kids crying, and called the whole situation a "Star Spangled Banner blueprint for genocide."

  That said, the case will continue, with a conference on February 27 and motions due on March 5. The case is US v. Horge, 19-cr-96 (Swain).
