BOSTON — The former University of Alabama in Huntsville professor sentenced to life in prison last week in a shooting rampage that killed three of her colleagues wants to go on trial in the 1986 death of her brother in Massachusetts.

Court documents filed by Amy Bishop‘s lawyer say she objects to a decision by Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey to decline to prosecute her in the killing of 18-year-old Seth Bishop.

Attorney Larry Tipton says Bishop wants to prove at trial that she had a “loving and caring relationship” with her brother and that the shooting was accidental.

David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office said this morning that the filing was “legally meaningless.”

Roy Miller and Robert Tuten, who helped defend Bishop in her Alabama criminal case, said they thought it was highly unlikely that Alabama would ever release Bishop to face charges in Massachusetts.

UAH Professor Killer Amy Bishop Pleads Guilty

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The reader should understand: The cost of trying capital cases – cases in which the penalty is, or may be death – are EXCEEDINGLY more expensive than any other case, simply because of the numerous levels of mandatory appeals. Thus, by pleading guilty, and spending the rest her natural life behind bars – without the possibility of parole, and being given humane healthcare – the District Attorney, Amy Bishop and her defense attorneys have saved Madison County, Huntsville, and the State of Alabama many MILLIONS of tax dollars.

That is true, even given that she may live perhaps another 40 years – though that is highly unlikely, simply because incarceration exacts a physical toll upon a person’s life, shortening it by many years. Estimating a cost of $20,000/year (which includes the total cost of employees to guard & manage the system, cost of operations, etc.), and supposing she lives another 40 years (which is less likely, than not) the total flat-line cost would be $800,000.

A 2004 report entitled “State Prison Expenditures, 2001” by James B. Stephan, Statistician for the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, of the Department of Justice, found that the cost of food and medical expenses, food service & utilities cost per prisoner in Alabama was $1776. Alabama’s Average Annual Operating Cost per prisoner was $8128 – THE lowest of 50 states. Other components of cost – employee cost, salaries, wages, benefits, supplies, maintenance, contractual services, and other aspects of facility operation, etc. – account for nearly 96% of all operating costs. According to the report, of all states, Alabama has the HIGHEST per-prisoner cost of utilities as a percentage of operating expenditure, at 5.7%. Perhaps it’s time to rethink solar, wind and other sources of renewable energy?

Ex-prof pleads guilty to killing Ala. colleagues

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An ex-professor pleaded guilty Tuesday to fatally shooting three colleagues and wounding three others at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, court officials said.

Amy Bishop, 47, pleaded guilty to one count of capital murder involving two or more people and three counts of attempted murder. She had earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Prosecutors were seeking the death penalty against the Harvard-educated Bishop and it was not immediately clear if they would drop the penalty as part of the plea deal. Sentencing will be after arguments are heard at a hearing on Sept. 24.

Safia Memon asks, “Can I haz munny back now… pleeze?”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, June 8, 2012

Safia Memon, mother of Hammad Memon – who, at age 14 was witnessed shooting fellow classmate Todd Brown in the head execution-style at point-blank range by numerous students standing nearby, which act was also recorded on video tape at Discovery Middle School, Madison Alabama – was apprehended by law enforcement authorities at a Dallas, Texas bus station, in an apparent flight to avoid the prosecution of her son Todd. She, along with Todd and a younger daughter had fled Alabama in violation of young Mr. Memon’s court orders. In their possession, were several thousand dollars, and Pakistani passports also in violation of court orders.

A courier had tipped off authorities that a package possibly containing a Pakistani passport had been delivered to the Memon’s residence.

Police in Madison, Alabama became suspicious, and arrested her husband Dr. Iqbal Memon, MD when he claimed no knowledge of her and the children’s whereabouts, after they had not been seen for several days.

Even though she turned it off when not using it, the FBI and other law enforcement authorities were able to locate her by her cell phone signal when she did turn it on to use it.

Now, all family members – save the young girl – are charged with felonies. The parents are charged with Hindering Prosecution, a Class C felony in Alabama, and Hammad is charged with capital murder.

She claimed that she and the children were going to visit relatives in Texas.

Yeah… right.

You don’t need a Pakistani passport for that, now… do you?

April 16, 2012

By Kelly Kazek kelly@athensnews-courier.com

MADISON — A doctor who practiced in Athens was arrested Friday night by Madison police, accused of hindering prosecution for allegedly aiding his teen son, a murder suspect, in an attempt to flee Alabama.

Dr. Iqbal Memon, who occasionally wrote medical columns for The News Courier several years ago, was arrested after his son, Hammad Memon, 17, was captured in Dallas with his mother and 6-year-old sister. Authorities said Hammad had a Pakistani passport in his possession.

The family members apparently left Alabama Wednesday or Thursday after an express mail delivery person reported Hammad had signed for an envelope believed to contain a passport, which was a violation of the terms of Hammad’s bail on a charge of shooting to death classmate Todd Brown, 14, at Discovery Middle School in 2010. Brown lived in Madison with his mother at the time; his father Michael Brown is from Tanner.

The Memon family lives in Madison, where Memon had a second physician’s office.

Hammad was 14 at the time of the shooting but was to be tried as an adult on June 18.

Dr. Memon was charged with hindering prosecution after Madison Police investigators suspected he was not being forthcoming about his family’s location. Read the rest of this entry »

Alabama State Budget Hardships is Justice Delayed for Amy Bishop. Could she go free?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, March 12, 2012

The GOP dominated state government has no clue about how to run the state.

The results are horrific.

Here’s one example.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – The high-profile murder case against accused UAH shooter Amy Bishop has been delayed.

Circuit Judge Alan Mann approved a defense request Friday to push back the start date for Bishop’s trial.

The case had been set to begin March 19 and no new date was immediately set.

The Last Fair Deal Gone Down: Robert Johnson, Racism and Abortion

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Late American Blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Robert Johnson, a Negro, died at the tender young age of 27, in 1938. There are less than 50 recordings of his, of which historians are aware. Among musicologists, researchers and others, his performances are considered treasures and remain the subject of great debate, even today.

If Robert Johnson’s mother were alive today, living in New York City and in the prime of her childbearing years, the flower of her youth, and were to become pregnant with him today… Read the rest of this entry »

Allahu Akbar! Terrorism Works! South Park Infidels stopped from mocking Muhammed.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Saturday, April 24, 2010

Thank you, Islamist extremists, for demonstrating that freedom isn’t free.

If there’s one thing you can’t tolerate, it’s tolerance.

I don’t watch South Park. On rare occasion, while “channel surfing,” I’ve passed through it, stopping only briefly. What I’ve seen has never impressed me.

Sure, there are folks whom enjoy the program, but I’m not one, and I never have been.

Most recently however, it has come to the attention of the people of the United States of America – sometimes also known as “the Great Satan” by Islamist extremists – and throughout the world, that some Muslims will kill you… if they don’t like what you say.

What a shame. What a damn, crying shame.

“It wasn’t me. I wan’t there.” -Amy “Wile E. Coyote” Bishop

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, March 24, 2010

“It wasn’t me.”

That’s the asinine claim being made by Dr. Amy Bishop, PhD (Harvard) – sometimes also known as Amy “Wile E. Coyote” Bishop – the former UAH Biology professor whom shot and killed three of her former colleagues, and seriously wounding three others.

No doubt, she’s working on a multiple personality disorder defense.

Amy Bishop’s new book: “How I cooked my goose”; alternate working titles: “My mom lies for me, too!” -OR- “Shit! I missed her!”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, March 1, 2010

Sometimes, it’s difficult to have an effective title, or headline to a new entry, so I decided to have a bit’o fun with this one.

The readers will remember that at age 19 Amy Bishop killed her 18-year old brother Seth with a pump shotgun, to which I referred in previous entries  – the most recent one being entitled “Amy Bishop’s Attorney Bryan Stevens – Can’t Read? Sure – just like Amy Bishop can’t shoot.

The then-19-year-old Miss Bishop shot and killed her 18-year-old brother Seth, in the kitchen of their Braintree, MA home, after first “accidentally” discharging the same firearm in her bedroom upstairs, which blast her mother said she did not hear.

Following is Braintree Police Officer Charles N. Solimini’s recollection of the incident: …Continue…

Amy Bishop’s Attorney Bryan Stevens – Can’t Read? Sure – just like Amy Bishop can’t shoot.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, February 28, 2010

UAH mass murdering professor Amy Bishop’s attorney Bryan Stevens recently said, “It was an accident, no question about it,” when asked if then-Miss Bishop aged 19, accidentally discharged a PUMP shotgun THREE times – twice in the house – and once into the chest of her brother Seth, killing him – at their Braintree, MA residence in 1986.

The problem with the good Mr. Stevens’ assertion is that apparently, he didn’t or hasn’t read the part where the now-Harvard-PhD-educated biology professor used a PUMP shotgun while yet a 19-year-old young woman to kill her brother.

Folks attired in formal wear – tuxedos and evening gowns – were seated around a dining room table enjoying their prim and proper meal, when the camera focused on one fellow whom said with a distinctly hick-sounding country-twang, “Would you pass the jelly, please?” Whereupon, the gentlemen appeared shocked while the ladies seemed to faint.

The announcer then said, “Don’t dare call it ‘jelly’!

Disturbing news is emerging in the tragic case of University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) Assistant Biology Professor Amy Bishop, PhD whom is accused of shooting 6 and killing three colleagues at Shelby Science Building on the 3d floor during a faculty meeting, after she apparently was denied tenure, but not at that meeting.

During her apprehension, which was videotaped by teevee news reporters, Bishop, whom is a mother of four children, all whom are staying with relatives, could be heard saying, “It didn’t happen. There’s no way… they are still alive.
