Why Janet Reno should never have been made U.S. Attorney General


Here is a story I ran across on The WITCHHNT listserver... another reason why
Janet Reno will never be revered by the people of the US.
This time she didn't burn any kiddies...she just threw one in the slammer on
unsubstantiated charges that eventually were dropped.... The family
understandably is no longer living in the US.
This occured before Waco when she was a DA in Florida.

Subject: Justice, Janet Reno Style

The following letter was written by the father of Bobby Fijnje, a
14 year-old boy who met up with Janet Reno's style of "child protection."
This "Open Letter to the American People" documents his family's reaction
when they heard with disbelief that Janet Reno had been nominated to head
the Justice Department. For more info about this case, see: Armbrister, T.,
JUSTICE GONE CRAZY, Reader's Digest, Jan. 1994, p. 33-40.
To the American people and their government: It is with surprise, shock,
dismay, and anger that the Fijnje family learned of the nomination of
Janet Reno as Attorney General of the United States of America. After
reading this letter I hope you will understand why our family feels that
way. I would like to describe how Ms. Reno persecuted our family. After
serving the government in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles, for almost 25
years, we decided that it would be a good experience for our children
Nanette and Bobby, Jr., to settle in Miami, Florida. We bought a house
there and the children entered school. We wanted to make our new home our
fatherland. When we arrived in Miami, Nanette was 8 and Bobby was 5. In
late 1981 we joined Old Cutler Presbyterian Church, in which the whole
family participated in almost all church activities. I was honored to
serve the church for three years as deacon and three more years as an
elder. For eight years I sang in the choir, while my wife Vivian joined
the bible classes, worked in the kitchen, and helped in other ways. The
kids went to Sunday-school classes, and when the time came, they became
members of the congregation. Neither Vivian nor I was ever called to
school or church because of any misbehavior of either of the children.
Nanette graduated from high school and entered Dade Community College.
Bobby was given an award as the best all-around student of his class when
he graduated from 6th grade. But in the fall of 1988 dark clouds began to
gather. We did not know what accusations were being made or who the
accusers were. Imagine our shock when, on the morning of 28 August 1989,
I opened the door and four policemen identified themselves and told me
that they would like to talk to Bobby. One of the four, Detective Martinez,
told me that although they had no search warrant, they wanted to search
Bobby's room for pornography. I told them there was no need to get a
warrant and that they could go ahead and search the room. We later learned
that Detective Martinez had obtained an arrest warrant for Bobby three
days previously, but he told us that he had only come to "talk to him."
Two policemen turned Bobby's room upside down and of course found no
pornography because we have no such trash in our home. I rode with Bobby,
Detective Martinez, and Lieutenant Forster to the police station where
Bobby was interrogated from noon until dinner time. I was with him for the
first two hours, but I was then told that I must leave the room because
Detective Martinez wanted to talk to him alone. On the evening of
28 August 1989, two months after his 14th birthday, Bobby was taken to the
Dade Juvenile Detention Center. He remained there until 4 May 1991 when he
was released. During the frequent recesses which occurred throughout the
preliminary hearings and trial, Bobby was held in solitary confinement in
a holding cell at the courthouse. During Bobby's imprisonment, we twice
asked for him to be released on bond, the second time in the care of his
aunt and uncle (a retired Connecticut State Supreme Court judge), but this
was refused because "Bobby was a threat to the community" and because it
was said that our family would flee the country. Bobby pleaded not guilty,
and was tried as an adult on the motion of the Dade County prosecutor's
office, headed by Ms. Reno. The pre-trial hearings finally began in early
August 1990 with Judge Norman Gerstein presiding. Pre-trial hearings
lasted until the middle of January 1991, at which time a jury was selected.
Before and during the trial, we were repeatedly urged to accept a
plea-bargain and warned of the dangers Bobby faced in prison. We were told
that he would have AIDS within a week after entering prison. We were told
what a horrible time he would have in prison, where the jailers are mere
administrators and the prison is actually ruled by the prisoners. But we
knew Bobby was innocent, and we refused to accept a plea bargain. During
the trial, not a single witness ever testified that he or she had seen
anything improper. Over 800 members of the church stepped forward and
offered to testify on Bobby's behalf. At least 14 motions for mis-trial
were filed by Bobby's lawyers, Mr. Mel Black and Mr. Peter Miller.

Over 500 sidebar conferences were held in this case, which cost the
taxpayers well over $3 million, money that could have been used to feed
the poor, improve public health, or shelter the many homeless people who
roam the streets of Miami. Instead, this money was spent on the longest
trial ever held in Dade County, all in an effort to send an innocent boy
to jail for life. On the morning of 4 May 1991, the jury advised Judge
Gerstein that a verdict had been reached, but we waited an hour and a
half for that verdict to be read. Judge Gerstein advised our lawyer that
we must wait for Ms. Reno's arrival. She wanted to be present when the
verdict was read. Bobby was acquitted on all counts. During this period,
our family had to endure daily attacks and lies in the newspapers and on
television. My wife and I were accused of being drug dealers and
ringleaders in a child pornography business. Death threats were sent to
us and left on our telephone answering machine. In addition to local and
county police departments, the FBI was also called in to investigate
us. Unmarked police cars cruised through our street, while a police
helicopter with a searchlight flew overhead at night. Television reporters
knocked on every door and window in the house, but we refused to give
interviews because we believed that the media would not truthfully report
them. Ms. Janet Reno was the Dade County Prosecutor at the time of the
investigation and prosecution of our son, and as such she must bear the
primary responsibility for what was done to him. Is Ms. Reno the right
person to head the United States Justice Department? Is she really a
crusader against child abuse? Is she aware the she abused my son by her
actions and robbed him of one year, eight months, and one week of his
life? I urge President Clinton and the American people to be wary of
giving her this high office. Any one of the 260 million Americans might
run the risk of having the same thing happen to them as happened to our
son. If our efforts save even one innocent child from Bobby's fate,
it will have been worth the trouble. We pray that President Clinton will
hear the lone voice of a family that has suffered at the hands of
Ms. Reno. In spite of all the injustices done to our family during this
period, we wish the people of the United States well.

Sincerely, B. Fijnje, Sr. The Netherlands
