Judge Precludes Questioning on Cross-Race IDs, Witness Gets 2 of 3 IDs Wrong, Man Still Goes to Jail

Donald Glenn Flack, a black man, was accused of assaulting a white woman at a mall in Knoxville, but when the victim attempted to identify her attacker from a photo in court, she picked another man — even with Mr. Flack sitting directly across from her at the defense table. In the initial police lineup a month after the assault, she also picked someone other than Mr. Flack. The only time she identified Mr. Flack was when the prosecutor asked her if her attacker was sitting in the courtroom, at which point she pointed to the only black man sitting at the defense table. In the words of her attorney:

“I’m sorry, that’s not an identification,” he said in his closing argument. “She’s one for three, that’s less than 50 percent.”

Further, Mr. Flack’s brother testified that another man, James Blance, committed the crime. When Blance was called to testify, he invoked the 5th and refused to testify.

Despite the victim’s identification of someone other than Mr. Flack on two out of three occasions, and other evidence suggesting an alternate suspect, the Knox County Court prohibited defense counsel from even questioning the investigating officer about the well-known difficulty that members of one race have when attempting to identify members of another race, a problem which is amplified by the presence of a weapon, stress, and a very short exposure time, all of which were factors in this case.

Notwithstanding the serious questions raised about Mr. Flack’s culpability within the constraints defined by the court, the all-white jury convicted Mr. Flack and sealed his fate of up to 15 years in prison. This case is another illustration of the importance of expert testimony when it comes to the reliability of eyewitness evidence. Cross-examination and a compelling closing are rarely enough to shake a witness who honestly believes that she’s right, but happens to be wrong.

    Manny Gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the CA prison system.This legal appeal case is a perfect example of conflicted victim identification being the only evidence needed to convict this kid for 27 year prison sentence.
    President Hugo Chavez has been asked with a written letter posted at this WWW site to finance the federal court legal fees for this retrial case.Thousands of poor uneducated prison inmates like Manny Gonzales are being forced to write their own federal appeals from prison and being turned down in mass.We find it incredable that our US Congress has accepted this long history of only wealthy Americans being represented by legal counsel with federal retrial appeals instead of making sure all Americans have an equal opportunity at real justice.

  2. Georgia Jenkins says:

    I read this Manny Gonzales appeal legal case on the WWW and found it odd that our American judicial system has been allowing this great difference of affluent Americans being able to have proper appeal legal representation for their federal appeal law cases,and poor prison inmates with very little educational skills being forced to submit their own federal retrial appeals from their prisons. That WWW web posting of Manny Gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the Ca prison system seemed to be right on top of this legal case, but this case does seem to bring to light false identification being more prevalent in our judicial court rooms then I ever imagined.

  3. Diane Hart says:

    The criminal legal case of Manny Gonzales that took place in Van Nuys Ca, had nearly the same type of eyewitness mix up that took place in Mr. Flacks legal case. According to the Innocence Projects web sites,a very high percentage of eyewitness
    reports that falsely incriminated 260 prison inmates for rape were wrong and were proven by DNA evidence to be a typical situation of misidentification. Our US
    Congress needs to begin to think very seriously about opening Innocence Project offices around our country to assist in gaining these reported 100,000 innocent US prison inmates every opportunity possible to properly attempt to exonerate themselves from our national prison systems.

  4. Harry Bunting says:

    Anytime innocent poor prison inmates who are being forced to write their own federal appeal retrial legal cases get denied
    new trials from the US federal judges in mass nationwide,and guilty defendants who can afford proper legal counsel for their federal appeals are being granted new retrials by those same federal judges,we have major problems in a US judicial process
    that has an ingrained injustice !

  5. Sue says:

    The innocence Project has reported that 75% of the eye witness reports from rape victims that resulted in 270 men being falsely imprisoned for decades, were recently released through DNA evidence !
    This Manny Gonzales young man I read had one witness who identified another face within the same week after being shot at in a police picture lineup as the shooter,and then 35 days later changed his mind and said it was this Gonzales kid instead? With this unsure a witness of who the real shooter was, the only way a DA could ever get a conviction in this criminal case was to inflame a jury with that good old LA gang association fear tactic. The presiding judge I read previous the trial beginning, warned this DA not to attempt to mislead the jury with this fear tactic,but the DA decided to take the law into their own hands to make sure that this case wound up with a guilty verdict.Disobeying the judges instructions should have clearly been grounds for a mistrial,but its a known fact that this specific type of misconduct by DA’s (gang insinuations) in Los Angeles is happening quite often! Quiet streets from gangs is the agenda of the LA community, but false imprisonment should not be part of their game plan.
    Allowing this type of fake criminal trial to stand,the LA judicial process is
    beginning to frighten many in the community who all remember a rush to justice in the deep South in another time in American history.

    If our elected Leaders of the Free World are not caring enough
    or bright enough to be capable of designing a new Federal appeal judicial Process for the masses of middle class and working poor Americans to be able to properly utilize for their fair and just opportunities at receiving retrials from our US Federal Court Appeal Judges,then we have not learned very well as an advanced society from the situation the German population found themselves facing prior WW2. Falsely imprisoning 100,000 innocent fellow American citizens without hearing even a peep from the American people or our National Media,might just be the start down that very slippery slope!

  7. Lawyers for Poor Americans says:

    The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide. Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves and regain their freedom through being granted new retrials. This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal retrial appeals. This unjust judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges .

    Our US Congress affords themselves all the perks and salary most Americans could only dream about,but ask anyone of these Leaders Of The Free World to protect our Middle Class or Working Poor Americans from continuing to be falsely imprisoned endless decades due to the lack of federal appeal legal counsel being afforded them, and you just might be thought of as being crazy?
    The masses of the American people could never come close to ever being able to burden these federal appeal legal costs for themselves or for a family member,and should not need a lobbying group for this basic right of legal protection to be afforded them! Our Poster Child of this exact neglect by our US Congress is this young man named Manny Gonzales.Anyone interested in reading first hand how our US Congress is willing to allow our judicial system to continue keeping this now 21 year old young man imprisoned for 27 mandatory years for frightening someone with a hand gun(not even injuring the so called victim,) without affording him federal appeal legal counsel to properly be able to defend himself in our Federal courts of Appeal? Manny Gonzales The kid that everyone forgot in the CA prison system can be entered into any WWW search engine for the judicial ride of ones life! Tens of thousands of other Americans being imprisoned in the US are facing this same lack of legal counsel everyday,and with this lack of legal counsel being denied their right to new retrials,which in turn forces thousands to remain endless decades in our prison systems of the wealthiest country in the world!
    Just like the German population prior WW2,the American people and our National Media have not felt any concern or interest to speak out about about our country having so many of our fellow Middle Class and Working Poor citizens being falsely imprisoned and not even being afforded the proper Federal Appeal legal counsel to assist in their attempt at exonerating themselves! This situation with the lack of federal appeal legal counsel has gotten so serious,and because it’s affecting so many innocent citizens in America, that President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has even been asked to finance the federal appeal legal fees for the Manny Gonzales federal court legal appeal taking place at the Central CA Federal District Court in Riverside California.

    TENS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN PRISON INMATES NEED INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE FOR LEGAL FEES IN HELPING THEM ATTEMPT TO EXONERATE THEMSELVES FROM OUR US PENAL COLONIES!

    Most Americans are well aware that there are plenty of innocent poorer US citizens in our prison systems nationwide,but very few of us have ever heard about our US Congressional representatives who are mostly lawyers themselves, denying our Middle Class and Working Poor Americans proper legal counsel for their federal appeals. When any poorer American is charged with a Federal crime all legal costs and appeals are paid for,but when one is charged in the various 50 states and run out of higher court state appeal opportunities and need to appeal to the Federal courts,it appears that these poorer and mostly uneducated prison inmates are left to their own best lawyering skills to attempt to write a federal appeal that could sway a US Federal judge to grant them a new retrial.
    Our US Congressional Representatives sleep soundly every night knowing there are reported to be an estimated 100,000 innocent Americans (some residing for decades even on death row) in our US Prisons who have been denied proper legal counsel to help them attempt to exonerate themselves with their Federal Appeals?

  15. Lawyers For Poor Americans says:

    WHEN GOD’S FACE TURNED RED !

    US CONGRESS HAS GED LAWYERS WHO NEVER LEAVE US PRISONS !
    It appears that the US Supreme Court way back in 1984 knew the injustice of our federal appeal retrial review process really only being available for affluent Americans to get benefit from.

    The masses of poor and mostly uneducated prison inmates who are being forced to write their own federal appeal legal cases, are being denied new trials by the federal courts in mass all across this country everyday.

    Some believe this injustice stems way back in our history to pre Civil War era when the US Southern States were railroading blacks into prolonged prison sentences and knowing all along that the Federal Courts would never grant these poor black prison inmates new trials because they never could properly write their own federal appeal legal cases.

    The real horror here is that this form of injustice is even in 2008 assisting in the prolonged false incarceration of over 100,000 innocent mostly uneducated American prison inmates nation-wide.

    We all know the federal appeal retrial process was designed for all Americans as a fail safe device that every American should be entitled to utilize, but it is quite obvious that our government has allowed this appeal process to slip into a completely new facade in which it has become an exclusive opportunity for only rich Americans to be able to properly benefit from.

    **What we have here in this Manny Gonzales criminal case is a jury,judge and DA taking care of their communities safety from gangs in a typical vigilante hang them high process.The presiding judge tells both attorneys(defense and prosecutor)prior the trial that this specific case is not gang related and advises the DA to instruct their witnesses not to mention or insinuate gang association information to the jury.
    ** At this point in this trial the presiding judge is aware of and and protective of the defendants rights to a fair trial,knowing darn well that if a LA jury is lead to believe (rightly or wrongly)that a defendant is affiliated with a gang that a fair trial is almost impossible. What happens next when this DA decides to use gang association (over the presiding judges orders and objections)on this jury is really quite devious.LA judges are allowing these type of unjust trials to continue knowing these defendants can appeal for a new trial from prison after they lose their jury trials.
    ** Local DA’s know this local judicial system will not dismiss a jury due to DA’s using gang association with defendants and they have a free hand to play their jury to the max.This play acting between the presiding judge pretending to protect the defendants right to a fair trial and the devious DA who wants to protect our society by taking justice into their own hands,is a little what Manny Gonzales and his public defender had to deal with.
    ** Any judge that allows a rogue DA to disobey their specific orders on misleading their jury into believing the defendant is either a gang member or the specific crime is gang related should have the common sense and decency to dismiss the jury and call for a new trial.
    ** This kid Manny Gonzales tried as an adult needed this judge not just to set the guidelines in the beginning of the trial with this rogue DA, but also to continue to protect the defendant with his right to a fair trial throughout the entire trial. When this presiding judge allowed this trial to continue, the jury believed both the DA and the judge that Manny Gonzales was a gang member and this specific shooting incident was not related to his affiliation with gang activity.

    **Every night during this two week trial this jury went home and had the opportunity to watch gang violence reported on the nightly news.How could anyone think that Manny Gonzales and his public defender in tow could defeat a presiding judge,rogue DA and a inflamed jury with nightly exposure to gang TV violence?

    PRINCE CHARLES, PLEASE HELP US RESCUE OUR TRAPPED AMERICANS ??

    WILL THE ROYAL FAMILY COME TO THEIR RESCUE ??

    ENEMY COMBATANTS ARE GIVEN FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS,AND OUR AMERICAN INNOCENT ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN US PRISONS NATIONWIDE !!!
    **** INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS !

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

    ****WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY ****

    The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.

    Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

    This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

    This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

    Sadly, the true US *legal* Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

    For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

    It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

    This facade of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World!

    ***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY!
