Patrick Crusade neither endorses nor condemns the activities of the group
known as the "Montana Freemen." However, when we were contacted by
Len Schweitzer, the brother of Leroy Michael, asking us to post both of
their statements concerning the abuse and denial of family contact Leroy
is being subjected to in Federal Prison, we agreed to post them uncensored.
Here, then, is a statement from both brothers, in addition to Leroy's recent
following letter and the torture affidavitarrived a few days ago.
This is the first letter I have received from LeRoy since mid December
1998. In the exchange of letters and a phone call with the Warden at SeaTac.
I have been informed that the reason for the SHU (Special Housing Unit)
i.e., 23 hour lock-down of my brother is based on his loss if privileges.
Remember, one has the Right (not a privilege) to give consent
to venue and jurisdiction. This was disallowed, lest what the so called
"Freemen" were essentially about would not be exposed to the misinformed
public mind, for fear the public would over react. (Translation: become
ever more suspicious of the what government is doing to damage We the People).
From the contents of the letter and affidavit it is clear that the conditions
under which my brother and another "freeman," Dale Martin, formally a Canadian
police officer, are being subjected has nothing to do with correctional
policies, but rather a systemic policy of torture.
brother Leonard Joseph;
Second month, eleventh day
(April thirty Gregorian) Your
letter number one sixty-three arrived last night with Magna Carta enclosed
and a religious view plus a couple other pages. As you know, our mail is
blocked by the pagans in their criminal cover-up of torture and treason
against Our Children of Israel. I also received your packet on torture
as viewed by the United Nations.
Dale Martin; and I can give you new and increasing torture tactics at the
hands of these pagan aliens of the District of Columbia. We are now the
subjects of weekly physical assault and battery being forced to different
cells each week.. Terrorist teams place white sheets of paper over the
other prisoners cell windows so we do not have any witnesses who can describe
the torture. As you can imagine, if it were lawful to commit these physical
and mental tortures of assault and battery, there would be not reason to
tape over the other prisoner's windows.
the civil service pagans learned We could not be compelled to enter the
corporation court nor the so called sentencing, their retaliation has reached
new levels. Certain jail guards feel the need to kick the cell doors as
part of the torture ritual. Removing some of the food from the food tray
is another ritual. Another trick is to issue clothes either too large or
too small and later come back to see how it effects the victim. Two guards
sole my list of defendants names along with my writing paper. Some
must feel the intensity of the near-term lawsuit which will affect them
substantially. I have numerous criminal complaint affidavits which were
blocked from ever reaching the United States of America due to the co-
called warden's directive. He lied to you in the letters. His perjury is
find affidavits of torture with limited description as to the methods and
practices caused by the alien heathens from the District of Columbia. We
are now subject to religious prosecution with wicked, evil intent growing
daily. There is no lawful justification , it becomes a product
of each alien agent's personal hatred of Our children of Israel. This is
another reason my name list was stolen. It will not protect the guilty.
It seems the whores of Babylon dig a deeper pit each day. The enmity is
real Yet Our only law giver Yahweh, sees all!The instructions
on Magna Carta and Our grand jury are close to reality, meaning your enclosure.
However, chapter 61 is not full well understood by many people. Of the
twenty-five barons, it finally can be reduced to four people who are a
quorum even under Constitution of Montana, which says seven men make a
valid grand jury. An elisor's grand jury is one such example of a lawful
method to produce there remedies in Law. Further, our elisor's grand jury
is still in the current Montana Codes Annotated. We did this
all lawfully and still enjoy judicial immunity. This is another reason
for the torture. They need our signature for consent and We do not give
it. Hence the weekly assault and battery plus other methods of torture.
Two weeks later----D. M and I were assaulted by the black hoodlums who
dropped D.M. face down onto the concrete, knocking out a tooth, cutting
his mouth and possible cracked ribs. I saw the trail of blood down the
hall. Again the torture agents taped the cell windows shut so the other
prisoners could not be our witness to the assault and battery. This would
an indication of the evil intent and criminal cover-up.
I have numerous affidavits to mail out to our King's Bench but the traitors
are obstructing the United States of America mail with no lawful
reason whatever causing damages on Our attempts to seek redress of grievances
in Our courts of Justice.
this last assault and battery, the jail guards took away my soap, comb,
tooth brush, toothpaste, envelopes, writing paper, pen, stamps, and all
my papers, affidavits etc. After two weeks I got one guard to bring it
all back to me. These special treatments are due to the fact
we will not sign all their corporate forms and thereby become one of their
United States citizens. It has nothing to do with law, just illegal
power at the whim of the kidnappers. They admitted they are required to
have a constitutional oath and fidelity bond, but none do anything to correct
their sin. They feel immune from any lawsuit against them.
wrote to K. R. and said she should try to get my papers that were in the
seven boxes at Yellowstone county jail. We need them for our error coram
nobis. So far we hear nothing about our three justice panel at county court.
Has fear of men overcome the elect? Most of the preceding can be
accomplished via affidavit(s). K.R. wrote and said they got our supreme
court rules published again, but she did not say where. A partial
letter from Dan Meadors said the federal tyrants are now wanting "amnesty"
as the federal corporation collapse nears its final stages. All mail between
R.O. and myself is blocked in here so I do not hear how the cause is progressing
in our "other jurisdiction" in district of Columbia. It is difficult
to gain redress of grievance with on-going obstruction of mail. A designated
party in Seattle post office could get the mail delivered pursuant to information
sent to me from K.R. earlier. But some one would have to set it up.
said the Lawyer, Gregory Jackson tried to take R.O.'s things but J.C.C.
said no. The fact of no jurisdiction is becoming more clear all the time.
We also heard the Emmett Bryan would receive back all his property. Not
yet accomplished from our sources of information.
infidels tried to get D. M. and I to cell up together if we would allow
their bar tap. I said I could not stop them but would not volunteer to
cuff-up. Their own statutes forbid them from creating these in- jail extra
punishments, yet they do it constantly.
a recent J.T. news letter it said the de facto governor Marc Rocicot and
atty. Gen. Joseph Mazurek wrote a letter to Justus Township saying we would
never be prosecuted by them while they are in office. No details on this
letter but a follow-up discovery is necessary. It also appears a new act
of congress forbids any United States Atty. from prosecuting us as they
did in USDC in Billings. That Citizens Protective Act will apply to us
since no signed judgments were entered on the so-called docket in time
to deny us that protection. We can start suit immediately against the traitors
pursuant to that act. It compels the agents of the district of Columbia
to honor and obey Our Common Law in the several states. This would also
verify Our Eleventh amendment claim.

Affidavit of Torture in King county, Washington state
I, LeRoy Michael: chief
justice hereby testify ex parte as witness to torture by assault and battery
caused by civil service employees of the federal corporation United States
at the Federal Detention Center, SeaTac, located in Washington state near
During the past forty-five
days approximately, Dale Martin and I have been physically and mentally
assaulted by the so-called staff at F.D.C., SeaTac and their black robed
assault team of five members who come into the cell kicking, slapping,
pulling, twisting our legs, arms, head, face, neck, back in the act of
placing handcuffs and leg irons on us before we are carried out face down
into another cell. These brutal assaults are designed to make us give up
our unalienable rights and Our Faith in Yahweh. This last attack,
the fourth time, was the most brutal and damaging, especially for Justice
Dale Martin, who was dropped by the black robed hoodlums onto his face
which knocked out a tooth, cut his mouth, and injured his ribs. I
witnessed the blood trail down the hall as some of the perverts wiped it
up while the other prisoner's cell windows were taped shut to prevent witnesses.
This shows their evil intent and criminal cover-up. The question arises
as to the necessity of these brutal attacks, since earlier the guards merely
walked into the cell and tapped the window at their pleasure. The real
reason is forced signatures in attempts to violate unalienable Rights as
well as right to privacy. Our faith in Yahweh compels us to resist the
pagan's treason plot in every manner, especially since We are supreme Court
Justices' who do not violate Our Public Oath of the Constitution of Montana.
We are being compelled to become joint tort-feasors by the crime of the
traitors and We will not allow it to be done. For these reasons the
mental and physical torture continues against us.

The Following letter was received
by Len Schweitzer 5-18-96 PM.
letter was received from LeRoy after he was returned to Billings,
Montana after experiencing horrific (medical) treatment at the Federal
Medical Center in Springfield Missouri. His hunger strike was "treated"
by forcing a feeding tube down through his nostril, into the stomach (no
pain killer) with the tube left in place permanently and force fed three
times daily. The routine was described to me on a weekend visit I
was allowed with him some weeks before he had written this letter.
What LeRoy describes in the following letter is a vicarious account of
what he, himself suffered. Incidentally, while the media conveniently called
the "freemen" racists, it is also part of the record that LeRoy did paperwork
for a black man jailed in Billings which won release for the black man.
Primarily self taught, over a twenty-five year span,LeRoy became learned
in the law, particularly Common Law, which seems to have made him a more
intense and dangerous target for the government agents.
County Detention Center
Early this morning
I received notice to put all my papers and belongs into my pillow case,
as I was moving out. Then I was taken to the Springfield airport, waited
out a thunderstorm and was flown back here(Billings, Mont.) on a small
jet with another prisoner from Livingston.
your twenty dollars is still back at Springfield prison. They put me in
the medical watch area here and said it would be about a week before I
could see the other guys from the township. The guard here apologized for
the beating they did while I was here the first few days. For some reason
the Springfield guards were treating me like Americas No. one criminal.
Spent all but two nights under the bright lights.
the line in my last letter concerning the ongoing torture, there was a
small black man, about one hundred-fifty pounds, maybe thirty years old
who was tied to his steel bunk with leather restraints for six days and
nights in a row. My cell window looked right in on his from across the
narrow hall way. He was forced to vomit, shit, and piss on himself for
that length of time. The guards would dress up in their Swat team garb,
hermits, vests arm pads and four at a time would jump him on his mattress,
pin his arms on to each side of the bed and his two legs pinned together
at the foot of the bed. This way he could partially roll over. Then they
would run the tube down his nose and fill him up with "ensure". They did
this to me three times a day, three cans of ensure followed by a partial
can of water. It took about forty-five minutes per feeding and they joked
saying "We'll know when he is full when it comes out of his ears".
black man was vomiting up much of the liquid and they would pour it back
in. He had spit gobs of blood on the wall and after the second week started
they finally had put cotton plugs in his nose since it was obvious they
had torn his nasal passage. He was one tough guy and never screamed, just
moaned. One day he looked over at me, held up his hands and smiled. The
few other prisoners I talked to at "rec." in the wire cages told me about
treatments in the "medical" lab.
Springfield is Satan's furnace. Now you might know as I do why the
X-ray machine blew a fuse the last time they tried to do me! And God also
knows, You must know why I did not write this down there. Why oh
why do the American People sit back in their comfort shell and let this
process continue? But it will be hidden from your eyes unless you become
a participant as some of us have had the close encounter. Springfield is
I was in the booking area I called "Carol's" number, got through, and told
her to call you for me. I believe I will be allowed calls from here, not
sure yet. Much can be said in the letter as well. I surely miss my computer
where I could run these off all day, but then I have much spare time to
do it this way.
will be surprised at this one. Just before I left Springfield prison I
received a short one page letter from Gewen Melton, Klock, Ed Melton's**
daughter. She expressed a certain sadness, but did say they might not agree
with my thoughts or actions. How could they know, all they have heard is
public news. The guard here said we get out of the room about four different
periods during the day. There is a T.V. set, tables and chairs plus magazines
to read. Somewhat easier then the solitary at Springfield. And I hope they
turn the lights down at night. I'll cut this short and see if it gets mailed
right away. Keep the Faith, your brother in battle.
