Why is Mary McCulley in prison and why didn’t they let her out on May 8 despite public outcry?
Simply put, she is a threat. Not to the public, not at all. Not even close. She certainly isn’t a threat to banks. No, the only thing she’s a threat to is fraud.
And if you happen to be a bank engaged in fraud or who has otherwise incorporated fraud into your business model, then look out! US Bank learned that the hard way when McCulley won a $6 million judgment against them back in February. US Bank, to put it simply, defrauded her (so said the jury) and lied to the court (the judge called it “intentional deceit”–same diff). This is not in dispute.
If it weren’t for McCulley’s tenacity in prosecuting the case, the fraud might never have come to light. Remember, this woman appealed an unfavorable decision from prison and without an attorney. It’s that kind of determination and tenacity that the banks who commit fraud and their puppet courts don’t like.
Banks who commit fraud don’t want those kinds of people walking the streets–they aren’t safe if the Mary McCulleys of the world and/or Mary McCulley herself are walking the streets. They can’t have the people challenging their fraud and beating them in court! But we the people are much, much less safe if the Mary McCulleys of the world and the woman herself are locked up.
