Sunny Sheu Killed After Reporting Death Threat from Foreclosure Judge Joseph Golia

his death last summer, associates of Sun Ming Sheu, an activist
fighting alleged judicial corruption in New York, remain convinced that
he was murdered and that police aren't aggressively investigating his
death because of a coverup

Now this is terrifying...

Sheu has been fighting judicial corruption since his home was stolen by
mortgage fraud allegedly aided and abetted by Judge Joseph Golia of

Sunny was kidnapped, intimidated and threatened by two
NYPD detectives at the Queens DA bureau. He was told by the detectives
that if he took his case to the media or filed a complaint against Golia
he would be killed.

Sunny was told by the Captain of the 109th
pct that the cops detained him because he had put a letter in Golia's
mailbox, proving it was Golia that ordered the illegal detention.

Sunny uncovered evidence of misrepresentations on Golia's financial
disclosure statements and on Thursday, June 24, 2010 he announced that
he had evidence sufficient to have Golia arrested.

Two days later Sunny was found dead with trauma to the head, according to the Medical examiner that performed the autopsy:

Weeks earlier, Sunny made the above video, stating that if any harm came to him, Golia should be the main suspect.

Sunny also wrote a letter to FBI agent Rachel Rojas, asking for witness protection. Obviously his request was ignored.

Sunny Sheu was a champion of justice for us all, and a true hero. May his death not be in vain.

Rest in peace, Sunny

my name is Sunny Sheu. I have filed a complaint to the FBI and the New
York State Unified Court Ehics Committee about Judge Joseph Golia [who]
falsified his financial disclosure statement. And I have submitted
evidence to the FBI recently. [The] FBI sent me [a] copy of the evidence
that I sent to the FBI.

And today, April 9th, the Unified Court
ethics director, Janice Howard, she called me [that] Judge Joseph Golia
already amended his Financial disclosure statement. This means my
evidence is true. At least that he was forced to amend
(misrepresentations) on his financial disclosure statement.

the security issues, for the security concerns, I make this recording,
that if anything wrong goes to me, it should be come from Judge Golia
and his people because before I had been kidnapped by his people, and
threatened and intimidated by his people not to file a complaint against
Judge Golia.

So I make this recording for safety. For protection. If anything wrong please go to Judge Golia and his people.

Thank you very much."

From the BlackStarNews:

Was Sunny Sheu, Foe Of Judicial Corruption, Murdered?

his death last summer, associates of Sun Ming Sheu, an activist
fighting alleged judicial corruption in New York, remain convinced that
he was murdered and that police aren't aggressively investigating his
death because of a coverup.

They point to the alleged kidnapping
and death threats by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers Sheu
reported to the FBI, the highly suspicious circumstances of Sheu’s
injury, the contradictions in the official reports of his death, and
most conspicuously, the lack of any investigation by law enforcement,
even after the manner of Sheu’s death was ruled "undetermined" by the
Medical Examiner, making an investigation legally mandatory.

also cite a motive- the silencing of Sheu three days after he declared
that he had discovered proof of felonies by a New York State Supreme
Court Judge.

The Background Story
ordeal began over 10 years ago when a bank representative knocked on
his door and said he was there to inspect the house for its new owner.
The problem was that Sheu had never sold the house. It turns out that
someone had forged critical documents and used them to illegally sell
the property.

Sheu alerted all relevant authorities; including the
police, the bank that held the mortgage, and the title insurer of the
property. Eventually the parties involved in forging the documents were
prosecuted, pleaded guilty to forgery, and went to jail.

hoped that with all the evidence in his favor, the matter would be
quickly resolved--it was actually only the beginning of his nightmare.

Centex Home Equity, the bank that held the original mortgage, acted as
if the fraudulent sale had been legitimate, ignoring all the
documentation submitted by Sheu regarding the fraud, including the
police report he'd filed.

Centex filed a lawsuit on December 12,
2001, against Sheu in State Supreme Court, in Queens County. The bank
wanted a default judgment on the property and foreclosure, claiming that
the “new owners” were delinquent on mortgage payments.  In reality, of
course, there was never any legal “new owner”.

The Centex case
against Sheu went before Judge Golia, in Queens County. Sheu said he was
stunned when Judge Golia also ignored the obvious fact that the “sale”
had been fraudulent, which would obviate the claim against him. Instead
of immediately restoring Sheu’s rightful ownership, he said, Golia
allowed the lawsuit to proceed, eventually leading to the foreclosure of
Shue’s home.

Worse yet, the judge let the case drag out for 10
years, with numerous postponements, in essence milking Sheu of all his
resources. At some point, Sheu could no longer afford attorney fees and
he had to represent himself.

Clearly, simple discovery—
examination of documents by the court- would have proven the fraud in
the alleged property sale, but Golia never allowed this fundamental
judicial procedure to take place, despite Sheu's numerous appeals, he

For 10 grueling years, Sheu said, he was consistently denied
the opportunity to present evidentiary documentation proving that the
fraud had taken place and that Centex had no right to foreclose on his

Sheu's home was first foreclosed on January 28, 2005 and
Centex "bought" the property for $1,000 from Amy Cheng, a pseudonymous
fraudster involved in the fictitious sale. "How can you buy property
from someone who does not exist?” Sheu had asked me, when I first
started writing about his case.

Sheu also wrote Centex executive,
Gerry King and New York State Chief Administrative Judge --now Chief
Judge-- Jonathan Lippman, complaining about Judge Golia's conduct and
accusing the judge of “discrimination” and “bias.”

Sheu demanded that Golia recuse himself from the case; the judge refused.

was persistent, writing to numerous elected public officials and filing
an appeal against the foreclosure. Aware that he had notified various
elected officials about what he claimed were the "biased" rulings, Sheu
said, Judge Golia eventually reversed his own earlier decision and the
initial foreclosure was rescinded, records showed.

Still, the judge refused to restore ownership of the property to Sheu.

was so adamant to deprive him of justice, Sheu contended, that he came
up with a remarkable decision. Golia now ruled that even though Sheu's
home had been illegally sold years earlier, since Centex had already
paid off the mortgage, the bank now owned the property under a doctrine
known as "Equitable Subrogation."

"How can equitable subrogation apply to stolen property?” Sheu said, in an interview with The Black Star News,
referring to the fraudulent sale. "This means if I have a lot of money,
like Centex, I can pay off anybody's mortgage anywhere without their
permission and then take possession of their home and kick them out?"

Sheu continued to spar with Judge Golia. Finally, early in 2010, his property was foreclosed on again, this time conclusively.

In Kansas, and many other states, you can now carry a concealed weapon (after certification). I and all my friends do so. These fuckers will take down anyone who might give testimony to their falsness.  Take care of yourself, your loved ones and prepare for the worst.  Their next step will be to take our silver and gold.

I read a few weeks ago that things are so tough in America that the mafia had to lay off 25 judges. Obviously it was just a rumour. Or has the ownership of the mafia passed on to the government?

Given the endemic sociopathic nature of certain people, it probably would have been smarter to choose different channels for making his case versus what he did.

This could happen to you if you don't pay your mortgage.Blackstar news?

Let me guess Golia is in the way of a black lawyer somewhere.


Just saying

i love 4closurefraud....thank you for exposing evil and fraud....golia is a total piece of shit who ruled feloniously.....there may be no justice from the wicked powers of this earth but i know that the powers of heaven will administer justice...golia and the completely crooked nypd will pay dearly....there is more criminality in the nypd than in the mob....

A- I was junked for telling the truth.
B- Why? Because "Keine Widerrede in Auschwitz." There is no back-talk on the Bataan Death March. This poor deceived man evidently didn't realize he escaped into a concentratrion camp. In a concentration camp when the commandant decides to steal your stuff to give to his friends, well "the strong do what they will and the week suffer what they must." You suck it up, leave the state and be glad you are still alive. When you argue/talk back/send "facts and evidence" to the camp commandant, you get your head bashed in by the prison guards. This is selbsverstandlich, so why the surprise? The chatter on this thread is about "getting the facts and evidence" into the right hands. Evidently the other inmates are as deceived as poor Mr. Sheu. And I am also an inmate in this camp. I only talk in hushed tones, in an obscure blog that few read.

I didn't junk you, but I appreciate the pithy reply.

People are angry, mumbling in the prison yard.  It takes a lot of mumbling and grumbling to start a riot or a breakout. Some are tortured, some are killed, but it is better to speak than to surrender.

This whole thread is a joke.

I think Mr. Sheu is a much better martyr candidate than the other guy that was recently considered.  I have found a forum that's been established in his honor.  The purpose of this forum is to discuss and actually implement concrete methods of protest and civil-disobedience.  Please take a peek at

 I don't fault Sunny Sheu, but you never deliver a piece of mail to a judges house that is presiding over your case or any case. If you are not getting the justice that you deserve go to every local and national media outlet that you can find. Get good representation, appeal to high priced firms to take it as pro-bono or find an attorney that has fought this kind of battle before. Don't get a low level attorney that will trade your outcome to find favor with the judge. Appeal to organizations like the ACLU. Don't get into a shouting match with the judge or walk out of the court room. It didn't help that he wasn't a fluent english speaker and his accent was very strong. He was naive in that he thought he could get justice just because he was right. There are many corrupt judges with huge egos.

I already have a few new Urban dictionary entries being reviewed for Golia. "The act of defecating into another’s anus, typically as a precursor to forced sodomy within a Judge's chambers or in the back of a health club sauna."

Because people have allowed the system to become so completely corrupt, and because people have become sheep, the only solution remaining today is the wild west solution.  When someone rips you off, especially an "official" of some kind, lead is the only solution.  In private is usually best.

That may sound terribly harsh, but it is the only recourse that remains in modern times dominated by predators gone wild.

The world today is dominated by:

predators DBA government
predators DBA corporations
predators DBA central banks

All a predator cares about is "what they want".  No quantity of evidence matters one nano-bit to a predator, so there is zero point in dealing with evidence with predators.  This should be obvious, yet people continue to attempt to "reason" with wild, savage beasts... just because they morph into a form physically resembling a human being.

When we lost the courts we lost America.

It's the judicial branch's job to protect citizen's rights from infringement by the legislative and executive branches.

If the judicial branch stops doing that job, rights are gone for all practical purposes.

America is run by criminal gangs now.  The less property you have, the less likely it will be stolen.

This looks like something that I'd be reading out of the Bangkok Post over my morning coffee and a muffin whilst shaking my head over the obvious unresolved problems with the Thailand police enforcement and all of the associated corruption throughtout that beauracratic system -- and then lo and behold -- this is my own fucking country we're talking about!!! And who said that the US isn't rapidly turning into a third-world nation? Nothing surprises me anymore.  Sorry Sunny, justice doesn't extend to the serfs.  RIP.

i have posted at zh before several times that there is no benefit to "owning" real estate or keeping your assets in the usa, so why do it? Rent, dont "buy" - keep your savings abroad. Or leave. Otherwise dont complain because none of this is new, usa has always been violent and corrupt, exploitive of other nations and their own people. you know it, so why act so surprised?

What can we do to fight this corrupt judge?  Maybe if 100 of us send him a letter castigating him?  Or send letters to the FBI/police demanding an investigation?  Or send letter to MSM demanding media coverage?

Maybe if 100 of us send him a letter castigating him?  Or send letters to the FBI/police demanding an investigation

Letters to the editor of the NY papers might help.  But if you must send to him, maybe something other than paper?  Perhaps a short length of rope?

A good supplier: (no connection to me)

shedboy's picture

Yep. If everyone here sends him a length of rope over the next month or two the psychological torture will be a beautiful thing. Each day, a new length of rope arrives...

Also quite legal I suspect.

I checked this judge out, he is as crooked as they come.  He used contacts that he had to help him silence this man through intimidation, when that didn't work they did it permanently.  This is what happens to a society when you allow all parts (especially the Judicial) to become corrupted.  It makes the country so unsafe that in the end we turn into a third world nation.

we are a third world nation.

Sorry for for being presumptuous.

Most states have judges that can be influenced; thus the saying "A competent lawyer knows the law, a "good" lawyer knows the judge".

Judges actively directing criminal enterprises is a bit much for most of the US though.

Must have been a judge that junked you

onlooker's picture

This may not be an isolated incident of murder because of taking on the ruling establishment. Paying attention to a death threat is important, but should a death threat rule the court/justice system. If you go dead, it may be the case. You do not need to go to the street to fight and die for freedom and justice. A court room might do just fine. One would certainly hope that this never happens.

The only difference between America's "mafia government" and Russia's "mafia govt" is the Russian public knows it has and admits it has a "mafia govt".

The American public is like those 3 monkeys: see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil.
