    Luke Easter Says:

    LaVena Johnson & Morganne McBeth, In Memorial, Where Is The Justice?

    Just when you think you’ve heard it all,
    Another name is slammed into a brick wall,
    LaVena Johnson an Army Private First Class,
    Is she the first? Certainly this PFC isn’t the last.

    Is it any wonder Osama Bin Laden can’t be found?
    With a criminal loose in our camp running around,
    Destroying evidence, burning bodies, again & again,
    Calling themselves soldiers, claiming they are men.

    What a shame when the real enemy is on the same side,
    Behind the color of camaraderie these cowards hide,
    Punched in the face, loose teeth, she was only 5 feet 1,
    The Army claims its suicide, that’s all, over and done.

    How many before shooting themselves bust their own lip,
    Severe enough to the point it needs more than one stitch,
    Surprisingly they didn’t say she tried to saw herself in half,
    Which lie would be easier to swallow? You do the math.

    So, how did that chemical burn get on her private parts?
    Oh yeah, maybe a tattoo, some kind of new wave art,
    Why would someone waste time getting rid of DNA?
    Just maybe without detection they’re free to get away.

    Being right handed, she shot herself in the left side of the head,
    Moved her body from 1 place to another “after” she was dead,
    From the size of the exit wound when the trigger was released,
    There was no breath left because she was immediately deceased.

    The U.S. Army actually tried lying, hooray for her dad,
    He gave that crap the smell test and oh did it smell bad,
    7/19/05 her dead body found in a contractor’s tent, KBR,
    Broken nose, black eye, shot in the head and body scars.

    Military personnel or civilians aren’t we on the same side?
    Who is the American Government protecting, why that lie?
    Had to be someone with pull to get her alone, you’d think,
    I don’t have to be standing next to skunk to know it stinks.

    Where’s is the ACLU, what happened to the mighty NAACP?
    She could not have been more violated, do you not agree?
    A 19-year-old honor student should be shown more respect,
    But, this is how she’s being treated. Hey! What the heck?

    Can’t call it racial because all women are treated the same,
    Even academies and bases in the states there is this claim,
    We are truly near the end of days soon God will work it out,
    Vengeance will certainly be more than a punch in the mouth.

    The Uniform Code Of Military Justice aka the U.C.M.J.,
    But, where is this promise for LaVena, her assailant got away,
    Judging by the condition of her remains, she put up a fight,
    Now John and Linda Johnson are paving the road to right.

    Funny thing though, seems they have a roadblock in Iraq,
    It’s from the U.S. Army, who supposedly has their back,
    The saying, “with friends like these who needs enemies?”
    Guess the Army thinks first the perpetrator said, “please?”

    Here’s a little something to me that is simply down right scary,
    The hole in her head was from a pistol, which she did not carry,
    Oh yeah, if you think that’s something how does this fact sound?
    The fatal bullet that went through her head was never even found.

    If there ever was this kind of incompetence in World War II,
    Adolph Hitler or his off spring would be telling us what to do,
    Oops, I don’t mean us because there’d be no Blacks or Jews,
    And only if the Furor liked Mexican food maybe a Hispanic or 2.

    Whomever, wherever, whatever, an injustice did occur,
    We can’t make it right for others without justice for her,
    Hey, White House, the most powerful office in the world,
    Do you have the gonads to speak out for this Johnson girl?

    A petition was signed that is over twelve thousand strong,
    The Army closed the case anyway saying nothing’s wrong,
    Nothing like U.S. Intelligence, it’s the reason for the attack,
    If they hadn’t been storing WMD’s we wouldn’t be in Iraq.

    I saw something on the Internet much sadder than sad,
    Her mom distraught, shedding tears, clutching her dad,
    Soldiers carrying LaVena’s body almost made me mad,
    Draped over her lifeless casket was an American flag.

    Apparently the stars and stripes blows in two directions,
    There is one for neglect, another for promised protection,
    As it laid over her body on that particular sun filled day,
    Was it 1 of protection or 1 allowing the perp to get away?

    Beware this incident is not about colors, Black or White,
    Remember it’s a statement in the arena of wrong vs. right,
    I wonder if her recruiter bothered to make LaVena aware,
    The same injustice suffered here is also allowed over there.

    And here’s a timeless saying, which is entering my mind,
    There’s even a movie with the title, “Behind Enemy Lines,”
    Now that the light is shining on a lie that 3 years rang true,
    Who will step in & accomplish what the enemy refused to do?

    For every ranking Army official who signed off on this case,
    Nothing less than a court martial is what each 1 should face,
    Upon their conviction exactly where should they have to go?
    What about life in a cell behind barb wire fences at Gitmo.

    And we also have to keep open the options of another factor,
    Lye was used to destroy DNA it could have been a contractor,
    Civilian worker, military personnel or whatever the case may be,
    They are still under the jurisdiction of the United States Military.

    BTW, this isn’t the end of this kind story, not in the least,
    The sad tale of a 21 year old from Texas, PFC Tina Priest,
    After her “suicide” another soldier through his own neglect,
    Guilty! Being in the quarters of a member of the opposite sex.

    Like priest who joined the church to freely molest little boys,
    Sexual predators join the armed forces for their perverted joys,
    The biggest question still remains will something ever be done?
    Wining the internal war protecting our daughters from our sons.

    Update! From March 15,2009 here is some very disturbing news,
    This is from a Pentagon Report and it’s disturbingly so very true,
    There’s an 8% jump from sexual assaults reported last year 2008,
    Rising to 26% in war zones while 89% of the culprits get to skate.

    Yes, because only 11% of reported cases will ever make it to a trial,
    How many are actually convicted? The DOD doesn’t know (smile,)
    So, exactly what are these women doing after shedding their tears?
    Sadly, they are looking at the other side & at their own through fear.

    LaVena,7/19/2009 is the 4-year anniversary of your death,
    And the case is still unsolved? Well, don’t not hold your breath,
    Michael Jackson dies, everybody who is anybody shows,
    Savagely beaten, raped, murdered and still nobody knows?

    Oops! I’m very sorry, I meant to say that “they” are aware,
    In actuality the problem is that “they” obviously don’t care,
    Those who stood up for justice with Jena 6 where are “they?”
    Hey! Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson what do you have to say?

    Or any so-called Black Leader for that matter, what’s going on?
    Television, radio, Internet, news media, your voice is so strong,
    Even PETA when it came to Michael Vick, they raised holy hell,
    But the true story of LaVena Johnson, no one has the guts to tell?

    LaVena Lynn Johnson your homicide’s over 48 months old,
    Almost from day one the Army says your case is closed,
    Claiming you alone pulled the trigger, oh how very bold,
    I wonder, just maybe, is Fort Knox filled with fool’s gold?

    During this time lots of turmoil from an incident in Cambridge, Mass.,
    A White cop, Black Harvard professor, was it racial or is about class?
    Many are so upset check this out, some are finding it hard to sleep,
    And the injustice to you dear sister? That’s right not a single peep.

    There were no lives lost, no blood shed, only pride & feelings hurt,
    While LaVena Lynn quietly lies impervious under six feet of dirt,
    There was even intervention by The President Of The United States,
    Our innocent young soldier, how much longer will you have to wait?

    The question is, what course are either of these fellows going to pursue?
    Legal action with negative results, like your parents have tried for you?
    I wonder what non-life threatening issues will make the headlines next?
    Oh yeah! The Taco Bell dog died and it’s big news, but you they forget.

    “The Silent Truth” can be found at http://www.Midtownfilms.com,
    Director Joan Brooker-Marks with LaVena’s dad and mom,
    A documentary as finally the truth will be made known to all,
    Seeking to bring you justice, a few have answered the call.

    12/20/09 Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo III has made pregnancy a punishable offense,
    For women serving under his command in Iraq, now that sure makes a lot of sense,
    LaVena, raped, beaten, murdered, set on fire, no search for an assailant of the crime,
    Yet, if found in a motherly way not the baby’s father but in jail the mother will do time.

    Ha! There is a public cry of “outrage” and this crap is squashed before it really begins,
    Yet, in something a trillion times more serious there is still no justice for LaVena Lynn,
    Exactly what will move the public, the President, Congress, the Senate or the House?
    I bet we would have a full scale investigation if anyone dared to kidnap Mickey Mouse.

    Had this been the daughter of a big wig campaign contributor or someone from the DOD,
    It’s a sure bet no matter long the search no one would find the corpse of the guilty party,
    No! Wait a minute, that can’t be true because their kids only serve stateside or in Hawaii,
    However, if those committing these crimes are related, then it is no wonder they are free.

    Every now and then I check for updates but the same old stuff is there,
    Elected officials with the power to right the wrong simply do not care,
    Payoffs, ripoffs are obvious yet there’s some who still love you honey,
    And rest assured on “Judgment Day” they can’t bribe God with money.

    What is the most important topic in the military? Hehehe! “Don’t ask, don’t tell,”
    I wonder if the same topic of discussion will be conversed in the depths of hell?
    Imagine that, the rights of homosexuals given priority over Afghanistan & Iraq,
    Plus the lack of concern about you & others treacherously stabbed in the back.

    Do not look away now because here is another miscarriage of justice to invest,
    Still too many unanswered questions of U.S. Army SPC Morganne M. McBeth,
    Like LaVena, there have been zero specifics no how many repeated requests,
    She as well suffered mortal wounds in Iraq due to a non-combat related death.

    Dang! Could not the Army have dragged her body to the front line so at least,
    They might attempt to portray the enemy as having been the murdering beast,
    Then after all of the cover-ups, the funeral, looking parents square in the eye,
    The nerve giving their condolences when evidence confirms it’s an outright lie.
