Letters from the late Bruce Pierce in defense of Kurtis Monschke

The following is submitted on behalf of Bruce Pierce:

Letter #1.

4-10-08

Randy Krager
Director: Volkfront
P.O. Box 66731
Portland, OR 97290

Dear Mr. Krager,

Greetings. I hope you and yours are well. Thank you for your letter that I received some time ago in response to mine of 1-13-08. I was confused, however, when I read “Slander, incriminate, endanger, publicly insult, threatening” and so on that seemed quite over the top when compared to what I wrote. But, the nature of my letter today is not to critique either of our letters, but to bring forward certain facts that you apparently are not aware of with regards to Kurtis’ case and other relevant matters.

I have not insinuated that you condone the alleged events of that fateful night when Mr. Townsend lost his life; and it is well known that you had no prior knowledge of those events, and certainly would not have consented if you had. But, the reality is that Kurtis had no prior knowledge of what was to transpire the night Mr. Townsend died either, nor was he at the scene (as trial and appeal transcripts prove) when the attack happened. When he learned of the attack he quickly and decisively parted company with those who attacked Mr. Townsend.

Before you make up your mind I’d like to bring to light certain facts that you seem to be unaware of in hopes that you will reconsider and help Kurtis with his “Personal Restraint Petition”:

1. Kurtis’ defense made sure that VF was alleviated from any criminal or violent ties to this case, specifically that VF was a White civil rights group professing non-violence and opposing hate crimes. [1]
2. All three co-defendants agreed that Kurtis was not present when the assault took place, and that he was not involved in the decision to assault Mr. Townsend [2]. Pillatos and Butters had already inflicted the injuries which lead to Mr. Townsend’s death before Kurtis came to the scene [3]. After the assault Pillatos and Butters found Kurtis a good distance away [4]
3. The two eye witnesses to the assault, Cindy Pittman and Terry Hawkins, who had nothing to gain or lose, testified that they saw the assault and that Kurtis was not party to it [5]. Terry Hawkins reiterated that he saw the two men and one woman kicking and hitting Mr. Townsend and later a fourth behind the three, who did not participate at all [6].
4. The co-defendants Pillatos, Butters, and Frye who testified pursuant to favorable plea bargains, and the testimony of disinterested bystanders, were largely supportive of Kurtis’ explanation that his only involvement was the prodding of Mr. Townsend some time after the assault, and did not otherwise participate in the assault [7].
5. The physical evidence supports this as well. Clothes taken from Kurtis’ three co-defendants tested positive for Mr. Townsend’s blood [8], whereas Kurtis’ tested negative [9].
In summary, if the evidence is looked at with objectivity, it is clear that Kurtis had a minor role in the death of Mr. Townsend, if any role at all. The evidence supports that the most Kurtis did was prod Mr. Townsend with a bat in an effort to check his condition. Indeed, it is very unlikely that he could have hit Mr. Townsend with the bat and have gotten no blood on his boots or clothes, given Mr. Townsend’s condition after the assault of Butters, Pillatos and Frye. This evidence includes the testimony of Kurtis and of every eye witness and participant and of the physical evidence. Only one person said that Kurtis used any kind of force with the bat, Frye, the star witness who received an 11-13 year sentence in exchange for her testimony (versus kurtis who received a life sentence without parole).

I have enclosed letters from two separate attorney’s who have both researched the statute of limitations for Washington State. Upon request I have redacted both the attorney’s names. These lawyers were also kind enough to send the relevant statute which I have also enclosed (RCW 4.16.180 subsection 2). It should now be clear that the statue of limitations in this matter expired in March of 2006, and that you nor VF face any civil suit or sanctions, regardless of how often M. Deed and the SPLC write or comment about the case.

If you choose to help Kurtis you will also be helping yourself and VF. Kurtis’ appeal is a “Personal Restraint Petition”. The only PRP’s that get granted are ones providing new evidence which exonerates or shows ineffective assistance of counsel. For reasons of their own, Kurtis’ attorneys did not have you testify, had they the outcome may have been different or the sentence less severe.

Kurtis was tried separately and testified that he was not a member of V, contrary evidence notwithstanding. He categorically stated that he was not a member and had only donated $50 as an “official supporter”, which entitled him to a VF supporters T-shirt and a baseball cap. Obviously Kurtis was aware of the possibility of a subsequent civil case.

Kurtis is asking that you contact his private investigator. Also that you sign a declaration stating that you would have testified in Kurtis’ trial that VF is non-violent and does not support any criminal acts, and such would be instant cause for one to be expelled from supporter or member status.

In light of this new information, it is my hope that you will now reconsider Kurtis’ culpability in light of the evidence I have now presented here while bearing in m ind that there is no longer a threat of a civil suit.

Please contact Kurtis’ investigator as soon as possible because his PRP window of opportunity will soon close.

Time is short. I hope to hear from you within the next couple of weeks. Thank you and God bless.

Letter #2

March 14, 2008
Regarding: Wrongful death/personal injury statute

Dear Bruce,
Enclosed please find the Washington state statute of limitations for wrongful death and personal injury cases. The statute of limitations is 3 years with regard to wrongful death and personal injury cases. Once the statute of limitations has ran, then a civil case for wrongful death and/or personal injury cannot be brought unless a petition for wrongful death and/or personal injury has been filed with the 3 year period.

Regarding federal law, I am unaware of any federal statutes or cases that allow an action for wrongful death or personal injury when an employee or entity of a state is not involved. An employee or entity of a state would be involved only in cases where they caused the wrongful death and/or injury. When this is the case, then the action is brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act or through a federal civil rights lawsuit. This cenario is inapplicable to anything you have discussed with me. Thus, with regard to your inquiry, a federal court would have no jurisdiction.

A third party who might be involved in a wrongful death and/or personal injury case, cannot be held vicariously liable once the statute of limitations has ran in the state where the wrongful death and/or personal injury occurred. Thus, no action can be brought against the third party or any entity the third party may have ownership or control over, once the 3 years has run.

I appreciate your attention to these matters.

Sincerely, *********

Randy Krager
Director: Volkfront
P.O. Box 66731
Portland, OR 97290

Dear Mr. Krager,

Greetings. I trust this has found you well. Since I am offering copies of this letter to various individuals and publications in the cause, I need first to reiterate on the matters I wrote about in #8613 of 10-30-07 that you did not respond to and #8665 of 12-27-07, to which you also did not bother to respond.

In #8613 I begged for your patience as I laid out my case for a young man I had recently become acquainted with, and who had been an associate member of Volksfront until 2003, Kurtis Monschke. If I may quote from that letter:

“Kurtis is still young, and must have been a teenager when he was in the Portland, Oregon area. I’ve read the details of his case in the appeal prepared by his attorney, and frankly, if remotely true, it is discouraging for a number of reasons. It is not my intent to discuss those particulars with you now, nor the glaring lack of wisdom and insight of the alleged acts, but to seek your assistance.

“It is quite understandable that you were and perhaps remain angry with Kurtis. His youthful lack of judgment put many and much in jeopardy. Kurtis remains remorseful about friendships lost… and the problems he left in the wake of his short sighted acts. But, should we not rather try and forgive him as others have forgiven us our misdeeds?

“It is my sincerest hope that you will heed the better angels of your nature and forgive Kurtis, or at least lend whatever assistance you can in his case. His appeal has been denied and he is facing a life sentence in the hell they call prison, unless this one last opportunity he has is successful. This is where he could use your help.”

Thereafter, if you recall, I provided you with specific details on how you could be of assistance to Kurtis’ appeal. It has been over 5 years since Kurtis’ criminal conviction and information arising from Kurtis’ trial exonerates Volksfront from any culpability and reduced its liability from a civil suit to practically nothing.

You have refused to respond to me or contact Kurtis, nor to the best of my knowledge have read his appeal transcripts. Are you prepared to have on your conscience that you turned a deaf ear to the plea for help from a potentially doomed young man? And you contributed to consigning him to a life sentence?

Perhaps I have misunderstood? Perhaps I am unaware of other concerns? If that is the case, then I ask that you now respond. Thank you.

I serve God, race & truth, Sincerely,
Bruce C. Pierce

Letter #5

[reproduced verbatim]

Bruce, In Response to your letter dated 1-24-08

Firstly, you letters to me incriminate me and mine in on ongoing civil suit investigation by the SPLC, and all your letters have been monitored by BOP officials prior to my receiving them. Your use of my name in these letters and attempt to have them publicly distributed endangers my both my jobs (yes, I work for a living) and my ability to support my family and unborn son. I am not the “Director” of any organization and to to publicly call me such is irresponsible and incorrect. Some of your letters were sent to our members and supporters and I can assure you they will not be redistributed by any in our association, your letters and your request threaten all of our livelihoods and the work we have done in owning land and owning our own businesses. Your uniformed assessment that we face no potential civil penalties is incorrect and Morris has several very recent articles on the internet trying to link us with this case and there was a recent documentary within the last several weeks attempting to do the same.

Secondly, we would not involve ourselves in this case even if we could, which we cannot. The incident in question is so disgusting and morally reprehensible we in no way would ever link our association with it under any circumstance. The incident is not even remotely related to our group nor our cause and therefore has no relation to a cause related association such as ours. Whatever actions the person in question took were without our consent, without our knowledge and were completely against what we stand for, he is a grown man and it is his cross to bear alone and to even ask us to involve ourselves is completely out of line. In our system of justice the punishment in this case would have been far more severe. You also, by involving other people out here and asking them to take part of this insane attempt to publicly slander us for standing by our just and righteous principles put them in a position where they will have to deal with us, this entire issue is very ill-conceived and will result in nothing good.

We have always held you in the highest regards and respects and you should have taken the fact I did not respond to your completely incriminating letters for what it was, our refusal to involve ourselves or communicate about this case, and now in an act of pure vindictive arrogance you have the audacity to publicly slander and incriminate me and mine in an ONGOING investigation? Considering your complete inconsideration of my livelihood, my family, my associates, our hard work building what we have and ouor values, it’s best you do not contact me, my family, or our associates again. You have chosen to publicly insult, endanger and disrespect some of your most loyal supporters in defense of a criminal act that shames our entire people and movement, and it’s obvious our belief systems and values have become completely incompatible. Your letters recklessly and wrongfully involves and incriminates us and I have never been so personally disgusted in recent years. Your defense these nithing deeds and skraeling acts is on your “conscience” alone, I do not now, and never will, defend the vile and evil acts that took place in this case: his forgiveness or rebuke I leave to God and our Ancestors.

The following is submitted on behalf of Bruce Pierce:

Correction: please change the date of letter #1 to 3/15/08 and #2 to 1/13/08.

Letter of 7/22/08

With regards to posts #3 – #7,

It is obvious that you have not read the letters of 3/15/08 and 1/13 to Mr. R. Krager (posted in this thread i.e Legal Issues forum, Stormfront). If you had, you would have seen that I was a gentleman and respectful to Mr. Krager in each and every regard.

In my letter of 3/15/08, I listed two letters from attorneys that prove beyond question that neither Mr. Krager nor Volksfront face any threat of a civil suit whatsoever. Those concerns are not valid. Also, Mr. Krager’s connection with Volksfront has been well established for many years and is no secret. Therefore, any desire for him to now remain anonymous is unrealistic.

According to court testimony (per Washington state v. Kurtis W. Monschke #03-1-0146-0), Mr. Monschke was not at the scene of the crime and did not participate in the assault. But, because he refused to cooperate and testify to what he was told by the assailants; who made deals to save themselves, he received life without parole. See the last paragraph of Wednesday’s Sept. 8, 2004 “South Sound” Newspaper at www.tribnet.com/news/local.

Mr. Krager could be of assistance in saving Mr. Monschke from ‘life without parole’, that he does not deserve, and likely shed a positive light upon Volksfront in the process. Please try and think on it in these terms: YOU have the opportunity to help save a young man that you once were acquainted with from a life without the possibility of parole he does not deserve; with no possibility of repercussions to yourself or others… wouldn’t you help?

Dear readers, I recognize and respect Mr. Krager’s loyalty and sacrifice to the cause. Would to God we had more like him. But, the injustice of Mr. Monschke’s sentence, in light of the evidence (or lack thereof), and my loyalty to God and race compels me to strive to the utmost to secure assistance for him in this matter. If the tables were reversed, I would be campaigning just as enthusiastically for Mr. Krager or you.

Now, regarding the possibility of losing support or being “blackballed”, consider: I have been in three trials and one of them was conspiring to overthrow the U.S. Government (Seditious conspiracy, Fort Smith, Arkansas, 1989) and have accumulated a total sentence of 252 years with a 50 year minimum, and have been incarcerated since early 1985. My devotion to God and race is not one of popularity, nor do i fear repercussions. My sole objective is duty to God and race. If God wills that I lose support of those in the cause for my just assistance for Mr. Monschke, so be it. His will be done. Thank you. God bless.

PS I look forward to engaging in dialog with you regarding these matters; please feel free to write me.

Letter of 7/23/08

Kinsmen,

A friend recently sent me a copy of an email response from Volksfront regarding his request that they post my letters to Mr. Krager (found here at Stormfront) on the Volksfront website. Here is their response:

“We will not post it and by your posting it, you provide information to the SPLC and the ADL, who are currently working on a lawsuit against us.”

From my postings in this thread at Stormfront, I categorically prove from two practicing attorneys that neither Volksfront or Mr. Krager are subject to a civil suit or any suit, state or federal. The Statute of Limitations expired approximately three years ago.

It matters not how many times it is written about or by whom, nor how many times Volksfront or Mr. Krager claim they are subject to being sued; it is not so. I repeat again: the Statute of Limitations has expired and no one person or organization can now be sued. Thank you. God bless.

Serving God, race & truth,

9/12/08The following is submitted on behalf of Bruce Pierce:

Dear Kinsmen,

Recently a friend wrote and posed some questions to me that someone posted to him. It is my hope that my answers will clear up any questions that you too may have.

1. All criminal cases, except for those dealing with murder, have a statute of limitations usually of no more than 6-7 years. I have provided letters from two separate attorneys (one in Washington state and the other from Missouri) proving that the statute of limitations to file a civil case in Washington expired three years after the date of the assault. Conclusion: no civil case can be filed against Mr. R. Krager or Volksfront.

I am challenging those who claim that Mr. R. Krager or Volksfront can be sued to provide a copy of the law proving that the contrary is so.

2. I have read the first appeal provided by Mr. K. Monschke’s attorney. Dear readers, what investigation have you made or what have you read pursuant to making an informed decision (and one not based on emotion)?

I have provided the court date, case number, the judge’s name and court transcript page number in my posted letters proving that Mr. K. Monschke was not at the scene of the assault. Besides an emotional appeal, what facts have you provided to the contrary?

3. What can Mr. R. Krager do to help? In my posted letters to Mr. R. Krager, you will see that Mr. K. Monschke’s attorney needs only an affidavit from Mr. R. Krager. One that is even exculpatory to Mr. R. Krager and Volksfront. Mr. K. Monschke’s appeal attorney is attempting to prove that Mr. K. Monschke’s trial attorney was ineffective in his defense

4. In summary, I have
A. provided facts that proves neither Mr. R. Krager or Volksfront can be
sued
B. I have provided facts proving that Mr. K. Monschke was not at the
scene of the assault and therefore undeserving of a life sentence

Those of you supporting Mr. R. Krager’s decision not to provide an affidavit to Mr. K. Monschke’s attorneys are doing so based solely on emotion without a shred of evidence or fact.

Kinsmen, I have provided facts. You owe it to yourself and Mr. K. Monschke to prove me wrong. But hurry, his appeal deadline expires in October 2008. Urge Mr. R. Krager to help! Thank you. God bless.

Perhaps you [Christian Guard] and others do not understand because you have not read my letters (posted here) to Mr. R. Krager? Mr. K. Monschke is facing the very real possibility of a life sentence without possibility of parole. Mr. K. Monschke’s attorneys are only requesting that Mr. R. Krager provide them with an affidavit that they might use in Mr. K. Monschke’s appeal. You and others are condoning Mr. R. Krager’s unwillingness to assist Mr. K. Monschke and will be complicit in confirming his life conviction. Therefore, shouldn’t you investigate and determine the facts for yourself that require some answers?

Your position as well as 2-3 other supporters of Mr. R. Krager is solely one of emotion. If you had read my letters to Mr. R. Krager you would have seen that I provided extensive evidence and facts to substantiate my position. On the other hand, those in support of Mr. R. Krager have not presented a shred of evidence and attacked me personally. Personal attacks and emotional responses are indicative of a weak position; one without facts.

Krager, you will see that I tried on two occasions to contact him, with no success. Please see his letter (posted here) in response. Do you detect anything in his letter to me that might give one hope of future assistance?

Time is short. Mr. K. Monschke’s appeal time expires in October. Try for just a moment to put yourself in his shoes.

Give Mike L. my regards.

Thank you.
