After a year in jail, Jon Mellis has yet to receive a Bond Hearing. He needs our help.
Imagine awakening in the middle of the night to banging so loud that your door is nearly jumping off its hinges. Thirty armed SWAT agents with guns drawn escort you out of your house in pajamas and handcuffs, and for the next 16 months you are fighting for your life from four cold walls against the full weight of the Federal government.
You thought you had rights, but you were wrong.
Although I did not commit or encourage any illegal acts on January 6th, I know personally how Luciferian the left can be in its politically motivated bullying tactics, and I cannot idly watch the same campaign of terror used against average Americans for being at the Capitol that fated day.
Jonathan Mellis is one Jan Sixer held in pre-trial detention for 469 days without a bond hearing (nor did he waive his right to one). The court document requesting one is over a year old, dated March of 2021, somehow lost and forgotten.
For reference, the Waukesha Parade Plower was offered a bond in 48 hours after killing six children and grandmothers and injuring 60 others observing Christmas.
Even this illegal alien who raped his 2-year-old daughter, giving her a sexual disease, was offered a bond in less than four days in Jonathan’s same district of residence.
While attempted murderers, illegal alien rapists, and acid-throwing Antifa thugs are quickly returned to the streets, the son of a two-time Purple Heart award recipient is held on charges that allege no injuries or harm, nor property damaged while protesting the corruption of justice as is his civic right and duty.
Dear Gateway Pundit readers, this is Joe Biden’s America.
Mellis has been held in the absolute squalor and sensory deprivation of the DC Gulag for 16 months, robbed of seeing a face of anyone he knows or loves for that entire time in excessively cruel conditions. (See shocking video footage leaked just last week showing feces on the floor, chunks of mold from the sinks, and the size of the cell he has been committed to for 22-23 hours per day for most of his detention.)
In the year and a half that Mellis was denied basic protections of due process, his father passed away.
“My father was a retired Major, he was a decorated war veteran—a Vietnam war veteran—and he died on May 17 last year while I was sitting here in this jail. He was married to my mother for over 50 years, had six children. He was my hero, he was one of my best friends. And the last time I saw him was with 30 FBI agents raiding my house will full tactical gear on.”
An emergency release request to attend the funeral was quickly denied. Jonathan just marked the one-year anniversary of his father’s passing with little changed.
“It hit hard… it hits a lot harder when you’re sitting in a box by yourself.”
Over a year ago, Jonathan’s judge was “extremely upset” and admonished the court for losing him in the system for just three weeks. A profuse apology followed. Over a year since this reprimand has passed, his case was transferred, and nothing more than cancellations, postponements and status hearings have transpired. Mellis waits from the DC Gulag.
Mellis is among dozens of Jan 6 defendants who have been forced to waive their right to a speedy trial while held in detention, served indictments far after the 90 day deadline, deprived of access to their discovery, and—absent the most basic human decency—denied showers for two week stretches, left without toothbrushes, and held locked inside their cells under the care of a warden who has openly called for their extinction.
When will Merrick’s Marxist Lynch Mob start defending Democracy, as they claim to, instead of shamelessly subverting it?
Even though Mellis was recorded earlier in the day on January 6th making sure an officer who had fallen into the crowd was safe and not harmed, the basis of his detention is a period of ten seconds surrounding the harrowing end of the life of Rosanne Boyland, the unarmed protestor he and a handful of other men were trying to recover.
“Rosanne Boyland died right in front of me. I still hear the blood curdling screams for help at night,” he said on a recorded phone call from the jail about the incident that still haunts him.
Court records state that after the ten seconds in question he promptly left the scene, promoted no violence, caused no harm or injuries, and never returned. What are the grounds for his continued detention?
Those who have followed my story know that these kinds of far-flung accusations are meant to cripple and bankrupt supporters of Donald Trump and kill liberty-loving dissent.
It happened to Roger Stone. Right now it’s happening to your local sheriff, your neighborhood beekeeper, the guy at the deli counter, the Army Ranger—and if we don’t stop it, it could be you next.
