Tom Cryer Trial Started Today represented by Larry Becraft

Tom Cryer's trial is scheduled to take place on Monday, July 9, 2007, at 9:30 a.m., at the U. S. District Court, 300 Fannin St., Shreveport, Louisiana. They will be doing the preliminaries before the trial starts, so if you were there at 1:30 p.m., you would still be on time. They need your presence at this trial, they want to fill up the courtroom, please go early if you are able to go. Again, the preliminaries begin at 9:30 a.m., they are predicting the actual trial should get started somewhere around 1:30 p.m. Use your own judgment. In the event the courtroom is filled when you get there, please assemble outside the courtroom in a non-adversarial manner. We need to show respect, be courteous, quite, and attentive. We will endeavor to check with his office this Friday to confirm the trial is still scheduled to go forward.

This should be an interesting trial. I had great hopes that Irwin Schiff would have a favorable outcome in his trial. He didn't. Irwin has extensive knowledge of the law and the IRC and is 100% correct but that wasn't enough. What he lacked was practical knowledge of courtroom procedure. The team of Tom Cryer and Larry Beacraft should have knowledge of the law, IRC and additionally extensive practical knowledge of courtroom procedure from many years of experience. This doesn't necessarily mean that they will prevail; it just means that this combination of talent is just about as good as we are ever going to see brought to bear against the IRS. If Tom Cryer is not successful what does this mean for any future defendant in an IRS Commissioner v Joe Citizen case? After following so many cases over the years another failure here would, in my mind, close the possibility of any redress occurring in the courts. This is the "A Team". If they can't do it maybe it just can't be done peacefully. I hope justice is done and this issue finally resolved in a peaceful and orderly manner. What a mess we have allowed ourselves to be lead into.

It mostly depends upon whether or not the judge deems their evidence "frivolous". If he/she does (as they do in most cases), then there is no peaceful redress...the evidence will not be heard.

This is the very issue that makes this trial pivotal. Getting evidence into the record in the presence of the jury is not as easy as Perry Mason made it look on TV. It is difficult and very dependant upon proper courtroom procedure being followed. The judge may very well not want certain evidence entered into evidence but if proper procedure is followed, as Cryer and Beacraft will, it will be interesting to see to what lengths the judge will be willing to go to exclude it. This whole judicial process has deteriorated into a charade of dirty tricks. In this trial our guys just might know all the tricks. If they can't succeed who could? If Tom Cryer has a poor result why would anyone waste the time and money participating in more of these federal show trials?

Yes, that was my point.

And whether or not they (Cryer, succeed, all depends on what the judge allows.
