It’s Never Too Late To Come Forward For Truth and Justice

The accident involving Senator James Rhoades, Mr. Senavitis and Yamila Yafar was on October 17, 2008 at around 6:30pm which was a Friday evening on SR 209 a heavily traveled 2 lane roadway with a small bridge in front of the Beachwood Inn, a bar and grill. 

In the Fern Ridge State Police Crash Report signed and sworn to by Trooper Officer Jason Beers is states for all three units involved “Trailing Units NONE”.   Yet one of the witnesses they have who claimes to be able to see whose tires crossed the yellow lines and whose did not was two car behind Senator James Rhoades. 

There are also several other witnesses whom spoke up about is and quickly changed to they don’t want to get involved, this is what subpoenaes are for. 

In news articles they state that the Chef of the Beechwood Inn heard the crash, told the owner there was a serious accident out front and them along with the patrons  in the Beechwood Inn were stuck there while rescue and removal was done and that they saw and watched what was going on.   They are all obvious witnesses to the resting spot of the vehicles and where the truck was moved to for rescue of Mrs. Edith Rhoades to the double yellow lines.

Although the Crash Reports states no trailing units they have a witness traveling northbound 2 cars behind Senator James Rhoades.  

Those who  know this stretch of roadway know how busy it is and on a Friday at 6:30 pm in the evening there obviously were alot of vehicles trailing behind all Units being witness to the accident itself and the final resting spot of the vehicles before they were moved. 

I know if this happened to you, you would want people to come forward.  It seems people these days just don’t want to get involved but for truth and justice should in any case no matter how big or small, how little you think the information you have is, it all helps in the end. 

Stand together and don’t let others hang for something they shouldn’t.  GOD BLESS ALL

If the impact happened as indicated int the Fern Ridge State Police Report the brunt of the damage would been the front with driver’s side getting the force of impact turning the vehicle clockwise instead of counter clockwise as they have documented and sworn to.

Unit 2 front took the brunt force of the impact more towards the passenger side turning the vehicle counter clockwise inducing more damage to the passenger side.  Also proving the resting point of Unit 1 being againt Unit 2’s front fender and passenger door, not resting in the center of the roadway.

As stated in the Fern ridge State Police Crash Report as Unit 2 rotated counter clockwise it then struck Unit 3 damaging Unit 3 and making a scuff mark on Unit 2’s rear driver’s side bumper.   You can see the scuff in white just under the driver’s side tail light and just next to that the bumper sticker saying RHOADES State Senator.

In this blog you will find the word by word account in the Fern Ridge State Police Crash Report, Unit 1 damages as well as further information concerning the going ons in this case.   If you read it all and pay close attention to what you are reading you will see how far they have gone to cover-up Senator James Rhoades and Yamila Yafar’s role in the creation/cause of the entire accident.  The one thing we have not been able to collect are photos of the damage to Yamila Yafar’s mini van which we are sorry for.  But please continued to follow up with fighting back1 as well as the others putting together the pieces to make you aware of the conspiracy and corruption with our county politicians, police, judicial system and the other that have been brought in to this.

These photo were taken 10-18-08 as the investigation of the accident was taking place.  The top photo is the Sorthbound lane of travel which is the lane of travel Mr. Senavitis was in and going.  As stated in the Police Report the accident took place in the Nouthbound lane of Senator James Rhoades.  Clearly shown to them during their investation everything is in the Southbound lane including the marks of the resting point of the vehicles.  You must note that the marks of fluid on the double yellow lines is where the pick-up truck driven by Mr. Senavitis was pulled to at the scene for extraction/rescue of Mrs. Edith Rhoades as the truck was resting on the passenger front side and door at final hault of movement.

Bottom photo is the Northbound lane of travel which was the lane of travel Mr. Rhoades was supposed to be in as he was traveling Northbound.  Quit noticeable to anyone there are no marks showing anything happened in the Nouthbound lane as the State Police Report, it was all in Mr. Senavitis’ Southbound lane of travel.

Both photos also give you a good picture of the bridge and shoulder area which which Yamila Yafar was pulled over in to use her cell phone.

RHOADES FAMILY STATEMENT OF GRATITUDE TO STATE POLICE AND MONROE COUNTY DISCTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE

The Rhoades family released a written statement in response to today’s arrest:

 

Mary Edith Rhoades releases a dove after the dedication of the Senator James J. Rhoades Downtown

“We would like to extend our gratitude to the Pennsylvania State Police and thank them for spending the time and effort to conduct a thorough investigation that has been professionally handled from start to finish. The actions by the Pennsylvania State Police detectives, troopers, and investigators have been nothing less than exemplary. 

“Also, we would like to thank the Monroe County District Attorneys Office who, in conjunction with the State Police, have been professional, courteous, and diligent in their efforts. 

“While the general public and media outlets continued to look for a quick story and fast results, it is extremely important to remember that with any investigation thoroughness outweighs haste. 

“We want to thank the entire community for the tremendous outpouring of support, well-wishes, and prayers. This love, compassion, and support provided to us has been of tremendous assistance during this difficult time. 

“While our grief is understandable, it is difficult to describe the level of disappointment, anger, and sadness this most recent information has caused. While accidents can and do happen, this tragedy was completely avoidable. Due to a grossly malicious and reckless act, we have not only lost a husband, father, and grandfather, but on a larger scale, the community has lost a good man, a dedicated public servant, a steadfast leader, and the number one fighter for school children in the Commonwealth. 

“Because of these charges and the ongoing criminal case, this will be the Rhoades family’s last public statement regarding the accident. We thank the media and general public for respecting our privacy.”

THOMAS SENAVITIS – BAIL REVOCATION JUSTIFIALBE OR INJUSTICE

Thomas Senavitis is in jail after his bail was revoked

On May 23, 2009 Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis were at the Carbon County Courthouse for charges on Mrs. Senavitis consisting of assaulting family members, police officer and others.  This issue we will get into later as you won’t believe exactly how far they have gone to make Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis the Bonnie and Clyde of this century.

Right now we will focus on the Bail Revocation of Mr. Senavitis, what occurred at the Carbon County Courthouse, the hearing in front of President Judge Vican in Monroe County Courthouse, and what was and was not part of his bail stipulations.   What you know is what the Judiciary System tells the media which is their side of what they want you to think and an ironey of this whole thing is this is the second ambush on Mr. Senavitis and both time the media where there.  As a matter of fact they were in the door of the Carbon County Courthouse when the Senavitis’ entered getting right up into them and none of them had claim to smell an alcoholic beverage on Mr. Senavitis.

With 14 fails charges against Mr. Senavitis to protect the fact Mr. Rhoades entered his lane and slammed into him, Mr. Senavitis was out on $25,000 bail.

Driving On Right Side of Roadway   S

Driving Within Lane                           S

Careless Driving                                  S

They can’t justify the first 14 counts but they keep added more now how do they justify adding 4 more counts.  It is obvious, those that are to protect the laws feel they are the laws.

May 23, 2009 Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis standing in the hallway on the second floor of the Carbon County Courthouse along with well over 100 other people.  I would say the distance across the hallway is no more than 6 or 7 feet with people lined up on both sides.

The Senavitis’ were stand near the DA’s Office door talking with each other.  There were two Sheriff Deputies one at each end of the long hallway, one being Carbon County Sheriff Robert Blisard.   At no time was Sheriff Robert Blisard or the other Sheriff anywhere near Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis.

Just to the left of the DA’s Office are stairways leading up and down.  Several taking notice to three officials topping the stairs coming up, Sheriff Robert Blisard, another Sheriff and Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos, Fittos carrying two items one in each hand.

They approached Mr. Senavitis one on each side and said “Mr. Senavitis come with us.”

Mrs. Senavitis confused about what was going on beings they were there for her asked what was going on as they walked Mr. Senavitis arm and arm into the DA’s Office telling her she can’t enter, Mrs. Senavitis spoke out to those around them to please watch and witness what is going on here, we are here for me not him.  They then pushed the door shut into her and obviously didn’t like the fact she spoke out to the others.

After a while Mr. Senavitis came out of the DA’s Office and told Mrs. Senavitis, did you know I’m drunk again, I failed their breathalyzer.

Mrs. Senavitis suffers severe anxiety and panic attacks and was asking her husband to get her medicine, as he was walking away the two Sheriff’s then focus on Mrs. Senavitis grabbing her and pulling her further down the hallway.  As these two Sheriffs stood directly in her face she kept asking them to step back so she could breath she was having an attack and trying to get air.  The Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos joined them in surrounding her and standing in her face.

Then grabbing her, swinging her around to cuffing her then shoving her down the hall and stairs.  Mrs. Senavitis disable with serious injuries to her back, neck, broken clavicle as well as a slight limp from these injuries having difficulty with going down steps, as she was not moving fast enough for them and them pulling and pushing her down the steps yelling at her to was Mrs. Senavitis kept explaining she was stop shoving me they still continued to.  Mrs. Senavitis was arrested for the second time and thrown in Carbon County Prison.

When Mr. Senavitis was in the DA’s Office with the Sheriffs and Probation Officer Juliette Fittos he noted that there were two breathalyzers one that was in a box and the other was not and seeming dirty.

Probation Officer Juliette Fittos was the one who performed the test on Mr. Senavitis but had to ask the Sheriffs which one they wanted her to use, they used the one which was not box.  Mr. Senavitis found that Officer Fittos was having difficulty in using it like she did not know how, yet you must be Certified to use and perform these test as well as the breathalyzer being recalculated constantly.   To Officer Fittos amazement the numbers did not start rising until it was away from Mr. Senavitis for a bit.   Then they show him their numbers and inform him he is drunk and can’t drive or will be arrested.

Six people that had been standing directly around Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis in the hallway of the Courthouse as well as having a smoke outside talking directly to Mr. Senavitis, none of them who had ever heard of him or met him before gave their names and information to be witnesses to the actions that had occurred to them on May 23, 2009 in Carbon County.

Mr. Senavitis later notified by mail DA David Christine and ADA Colleen Mancuso filed for Bail Revocation for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and of course the Rhoades family vengeance.

June 1, 2009 Mr. Senavitis shows for his Bail Revocation hearing at the Monroe County Courthouse to be seen in front of President Judge Ronald Vican.

ADA Colleen Mancuso made sure at the being of the trial to announce and make everyone aware that Mrs. Mary Edith Rhoades was present accompanied by family member for her support to see justice be done.

Carbon County Sheriff Robert Blisard testified on the stand under oath Mr. Senavitis was not swaying, slurring or showing signs of intoxication.  Yet from all the way down the long hallway he detected an intoxicating odor on his breath.  He was asked on the stand if the intoxicating odor on Mr. Senavitis’ breath was beer, Blisard stated “an intoxicating beverage”, he was asked was it wine Blisard stated “an intoxicating beverage” he was then ask was it whiskey again Blisard stated “ an intoxicating beverage”.

Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos on the stand under oath stated she administered the breathalyzer test to Mr. Senavitis and he blew a .102 and .08 is legally intoxicated.  She had stated their only concern with the whole thing was their concern that Mr. Senavitis did not drive.    In the DA’S Office he did tell them he drove to the Courthouse.

Also in testifying for the prosecution both Sheriff Robert Blisard and Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos swore under oath they did not know Mr. Senavitis yet when they approached him they said “Mr. Senavitis come with us” but they had no idea who he was.

Also note that Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis both entered the Carbon County Courthouse with nothing on them other than keys, all their belonging had been lock in their trunk.  Neither of had any ID on them and they never asked Mr. Senavitis for ID at any time before or after they took him in.  They absolutely knew who he was and what they were doing.

Two witnesses that had been subpoenaed for the defense were there along with two that had not been subpoenaed appeared at the Monroe County Courthouse for the Bail Revocation hearing.

The two defense witnesses had taken the stand got sworn in and both testified that they were standing very close to Mr. Senavitis awaiting conferences that morning.  Both men said they could not detect the odor of alcohol on his breath, nor did they see him stagger or act intoxicated in any way.

ADA Colleen Mancuso stood before the President Judge Vican giving her closing argument urging the bail be revoked as she stated Mr. Senavitis is a danger to himself as well as society.

The entire time during this hearing it was noticeable to most in attendance that President Judge Ronald Vican was doing an awful lot of rolling his eyes and closing them.  Was he actually paying attention to anything or was this already pre set up to conclude in the revocation of bail making all testimony just a waste of time waiting to give his revocation sentence.

Before President Judge Ronald Vican even started to give his judgement and while ADA Colleen Mancuso was still speaking a sheriff sitting in on the hearing called in for back up to take Mr. Senavitis away.  They stood behind him one on each side before Judge Vican condemned him back to prison with cuffs out and ready to go.

INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IS EVERYONES RIGHT

THEIRS HAVE BEEN GUILTY, GUILTY, YOU ARE GUILTY WE WILL MAKE SURE OF THAT.  AND SO IT SEEMS THEY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB AT THIS.

Did Mr. Senavitis break his bail restrictions, what were they, were they added restrictions, how about we get to that.

–          Additional conditions:____________________________________________

Failure to comply with these conditions of release shall be grounds to revoke your bond and to re-arrest and surrender you to proper authorities.

These were the conditions to Mr. Senavitis’ release, there was no further conditions by the courts as they continue to say he broke the conditions of his bail.

Claiming he was    NOT TO DRIVE

NO CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE

These were not condition of his bail, but was requested to make them part to re-instate his bail.All the proof of this had been sent to the Judges, news media and newspapers.  To this date they have refused to make corrections in their reporting setting him back out on his bail and the Judge and Prosecution has taken all of  Mr. Senavitis’ rights away to satisfy their cover-up, corruption and conspiracy in this matter.

An appeal was made on Judge Vican’s decision and asked to add these extra conditions to his bail as it wasn’t part of the initial bail and that Mr. Senavitis is still in need of serious medical attention and President Judge Vican denied it again.  Mrs. Colleen Mancuso stated once again his threat and there was no was for her to keep checking on Mr. Senavitis to see if he keeps his word.

Mrs. Colleen Mancuso and President Judge Vican are not keeping the word.  The took oaths which includes fairness and equality to all.  A person is innocent until proven guilty as stated before he has always been guilty to this system no matter what, he has no chance for fairness as it was Senator Rhoades that died and not him. Senator Rhoades  caused the accident going around Yamile Yafar but he is to great of a person to be wrong in anyway so blame someone else.  Here though if Yamila Yafar is show at fault for anything it just proves Mr. Rhoades crossed into Mr. Senavitis.  So of course everything is Mr. Senavitis’ fault.  They have to put the blame somewhere to protect Senator Rhoades.

I believe if Senator James Rhoades was really the great man everyone thinks he is he is turning over in his grave right now seeing what his family and the “bigwig” are all doing.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF BAIL:  It is for suspects not proven guilty yet, pending further investigation and trial.  They may be free as long as they make their court appearance, do not committing further offenses or interfere with witnesses.

Mr. Senavitis’s guilt so far have been being an honest person telling them he drove and telling them yes he did have three beers the night before at home.  Again, none of which was any part of his bail conditions.

For those who still don’t think something stinks with the accident of October 17, 2008 with Senator J. Rhoades, Mary Edith Rhoades, Mr. Senavitis, Yamila Yafar and her infant and all the incident the Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis have gone through since that evening GOD HELP YOU  if you find yourself standing in shoes like they are now.

CAPTAIN JAMES MURTIN APPLAUDED YAMILA YAFAR

Yamila Yafar, the driver of the Ford Windstar minivan that was involved in the fatal accident that would claim the life of Pa. Sen. James Rhoades, talks to Monroe County District Attorney David Christine p

Vehicle #3 Minivan Yamila Yafar

Praise Yamila Yafar State Police Captain James Murtin did. He actually applauded her for a forbidden maneuver.

Not even a slap on the hand for committing several traffic violations, endangerment of a child [her own] , being a cause in a fatal accident and just outright ignorant in her actions.

At first it had been said she pulled over to attend her child and had also called 911 after the accident.  Then it went to and stayed to she pulled onto the bridge [an elevated structure, short and narrow] with adequately placed potential danger hazard signs to use her cell phone.  This call must have been life or death for Yamila Yafar because it was for Mr. Rhoades and in actuality for the rest involved including their families.  The Police Report states she never put her vehicle in park.  Was she actually pulled over or still in the act of?  Mr. Rhoades was late for his great award ceremony at Pleasant Valley School, he did secure them $100,000 for renovations for their stadium [football].

Yamila Yafar pulled in at Magistrate Debby York’s Courtroom Building while we were standing outside.  As she walked towards the building Yamila Yafar was approached by State Trooper Beers and County District Attorney David Christine.  They had a short conversation with Yamila Yafar then quickly sent her away. This incident was caught by Channel 16 WNEP who did air this action and the reporters which did publish a picture of them speaking outside.

Testifying under oath Officer Beers couldn’t recall specifics about the third vehicle or driver.  Without her presence there she was not available to testify for the Commonwealth which meant she wouldn’t be cross examined.  Convenient!

 Crash Synopsis:

UNIT 3 TRAVELING NORTHBOUND ON SR 209.  UNIT 2 WAS FOLLOWING UNIT 3.  UNIT 1 was traveling southbound.  UNIT 3  then PULLED OFF the northbound lane ONTO the northbound SHOULDER.  Unit 2 and Unit 1 collided to the left of Unit 3.  Unit 2 then struck Unit 3 as a result of the collision with Unit 1.  Operator 3 and the passenger of Unit 3 appeared to be uninjured.  Operator 2 and the passenger of Unit 2 along with Operator 1 were injured and flown from the scene.

 AT THIS POINT, THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES TO DETERMINE WHICH UNIT IS AT FAULT FOR THE CRASH.   (12-01-2008 at 10:10AM)

 Narrative:

The location of this three vehicle crash is on a TWO LANE CONCRETE BRIDGE on SR 209, which is approximately 66 feet East of Beechwood Inn Road.  At this location, SR 209 travels in a North/South direction.  The roadway was DRY and had CLEARLY MARKED DOUBLE YELLOW CENTER LINE AND WHITE FOG LINES.  There were no adverse weather conditions at the time.  THE FINAL RESTING POINT OF UNIT 1 AND 2 WAS ON THE CENTER OF THE ROADWAY.  UNIT 3 WAS DRIVEN A FEW FEET NORTH BY OPERATOR 3 FROM ITS FINAL RESTING POINT AFTER THE COLLISION.  UNIT 3 WAS PARKED ON THE NORTHBOUND SHOULDER UPON MY ARRIVAL (Officer Jason Beers). 

 This three vehicle crash occurred as Unit 1 was traveling South on Sr 209.  UNIT 2 AND 3 WERE TRAVELING NORTH.  UNIT 3 PULLED OFF OF THE ROADWAY ONTO THE NORTHBOUND SHOULDER.  As Unit 2 was passing Unit 3 on the left, Unit 2 collided with Unit 1 ON THE NORTHBOUND LANE HEAD ON.  This impact caused unit 2 to spin counter-clockwise and the left side of the rear bumper of Unit 2 collided with the left side of Unit 3.  UNIT 1 AND UNIT 2 CAME TO A FINAL UNCONTROLLED REST ON THE CENTER OF SR 209.  Unit 3 was driven from its final rest a few feet North by Operator 2. 

 This Trooper (Officer Jason Beers) examined Units 1, 2 & 3 at the scene and observed the following:

 I OBSERVED THAT UNIT 1 HAD MAJOR  DAMAGE TO THE FRONT.

I observed that Unit 2 had major damage to the front and a scuff mark on the left side of the rear bumper. 

 I observed damage to the left side of Unit 3.

 Upon arrival at the scene, Operator 2 and the passenger of Unit 2 (Mr. & Mrs. J. Rhoades) were being extracted by West End Fire Co.  Operator 1 (Mr. Senavitis) was being treated for injuries inside a West End ambulance.  I was unable to interview Operator I on scene, due to his injuries and need of medical attention.  I IDENTIFIED OPERATOR 1 VIA A DRIVERS LISENCE.  Upon Operator 2 and passenger of Unit 2 being extracated, I was unable to interview either of them due to their injuries and need of medical attention.  I IDENTIFIED OPERATOR 2 AND PASSENGER OF UNIT 2 THROUGH WEST END EMT’s.    

 On 10-17-08 at approx. 1900 hours, I interviewed Witness 1 (Al Guevera of Allentown, PA) on the scene.  He stated HE SAW UNIT 3 PULL ONTO THE NORTHBOUND SHOULDER TO USE HER CELL PHONE.  He stated there was A FEW SECONDS BEFORE UNIT 2 PASSED IT.  He stated he then SAW AND HEARD UNIT 2 AND UNIT 1 COLLIDE WITH EACH OTHER.  He stated Unit 2 then collided with Unit 3.

 On 10-17-08 at approx. 1910 hours, I (Officer Jason Beers) interviewed Operator 3 on scene.  She stated SHE PULLED ONTO THE NORTHBOUND SHOULDER OF THE ROAD TO USE HER CELL PHONE.  She stated SHE CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP AND DID NOT EVEN PUT HER VEHICLE INTO PARK WHEN SHE HEARD THE CRASH occur to the left of her.  She stated her vehicle was struck by Unit 2 AFTER UNIT 2 WAS STRUCK BY UNIT 1.  She stated she then PULLED HER VEHICLE UP A FEW FEET in case Units 1 & 2 caught on fire.  She stated she checked on her baby then called 911.

 Units 1 & 2 were towed by MATTS Towing back to MATTS impound yard.

NOW IS THE TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE

As of this day we must all bond together in an effort to make County, State and Federal Government accountable for their cover-ups, corruption and conspiracies. This is way past due. We, as the people have the right to protect ourselves from them and their actions. There has been too much for too long and I know myself that I have been ignorant to it all until seeing first hand and having it thrown into my lap. We all play a role in this as well, as they are pulling the strings to control us and our future right under our noses. Their goals are to profit and benefit themselves and their families. There is no better time then now for us all to open our eyes. We need to get the bad apples from the barrel and discard them before they rout the rest. We can do it and we must. Let’s get the clean up going to get our country back on the right track!

Where did Liberty and Justice for All go?

Every man has equal rights, do you think so?

Do you know who the bad apples are?

Are you or someone you know being unjustly crucified?

Are you knowledgeable of something bothering your conscious?

If you can help with the corruption clean up you need to speak out. As more and more speak out our strength will grow no longer making us just anybody because We Are The People. This is our country not just theirs.

We The People

When injustices are being plagued upon “We The People”  all should be knowledgeable of such information.  “ We The People” vote and put into offices individuals we trust, expect to be honest, true to their words and to protect all with fairness and equality.  It seems these days the brotherhood of government employees protects each other to any extent and at any cost to “We The People”.  These individuals feel that because they are appointed to protect the law, they are the law.  They do what ever it takes to protect each other from having their great names tarnished and keep each other out of the troubles they are in.  Only, they are building a pyramid of conspirators, a work of art called “Government Corruption” something we have been hearing a lot lately.  Sooner than later this pyramid will tumble and “We The People” will be responsible to re-build the government.  Hopefully it will be built with true, good, honest people.  Until this time we, must stand together and not participate in their cover-ups, letting them know, we are not blind but in fact our eyes are wide open.
