"Since 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."
This just in from William Galison, the author of Black Star News Article, and the friend who filmed the video of Sunny foretelling his murder.
I reposted his concerns in full to make sure they do not "disappear."
Today, June 29th, I spoke with a reporter from BI for two hours and then left for his office to give him some information I did not want to discuss on the phone.
Outside I noticed a silver van with nobody in it illegally parked across the street from my building. Sunny had been surveilled by a silver van in the days before his murder, so to be cautious I photographed the plates.
Then I noticed that there was Police parking plate in the window, showing that the cop was from the 81rst precinct, which is in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
As I was taking the pictures a guy in a Yankees cap approached me and asked "you got a problem?". I said,"The van is parked illegally" ,and he replied "well, talk to the cop over there" I looked in the direction he was pointing and asked "who's the cop?". To my surprise he said "your fucking mother!" I said "what?" and he repeated "your fucking mother".
I realized this was the cop from the van. I asked "who are you?" and raised my phone to take a picture. The guy lunged at me and grabbed me by the neck, throwing me against the building. "You take a fucking picture of me and I'll fucking crush your face" he said. A woman and some kids were walking by and I yelled "call the police" The guy yelled mockingly "yeah call the police", to let me know that they would not interfere with their own.
As I walked away, he yelled, "you take a fucking picture of me and I'll fucking kill you!". I was able to get the info of a witness. To my surprise, he did not steal or smash my camera. I do not think he realized that I got clear pictures of his plates and a blurred picture of him.
I have no question that this cop was surveilling me because of my involvement with the Sunny case. He may have been casing my building for a way to get in. There is no question that many very bad people want me dead. Sunny was killed for exposing financial corruption. I have exposed murder.
They killed Sunny partly to stop his investigation of Golia and partly to send a warning to the public that you can't fight corruption. If I and a few other people hadn't acted when Sunny was killed, everything would have worked out for these murderers, but with all the evidence in my possession, I could not be silent. Sunny made a video telling the world that he might be murdered by the NYPD, and he was, so I will not tempt that consequence by saying the same.
The question for the authorities regarding me is: "what is the downside to killing Will Galison?" and the only possible answer is that if Galison dies, there will be riots, and protests, and outrage, and political heads will roll, figuratively and perhaps literally.
Otherwise it's a no-brainer.
I ask my friends and colleagues: what would it take to bring you to the streets? My death? Your friend's death?, Your lover's death? Your child's death? Sunny was a dear friend, but he did not have a big enough sphere of friends to make problems for the cops when they killed him. He had no family, few professional colleagues and few friends. My waving a sign in protest would not have helped, but what I did help do was to bring his murder to the attention of the world.
I am asking on you, my friends and colleagues, to help assure my safety. If YOU, my friends, and your friends, DO NOTHING, I or someone else in my position will be killed and the terror will grow more powerful and universal until we all find ourselves in a police state, with no freedom and no recourse. Then it will be too late.
Like Sunny, I cannot go to the NYPD. I cannot go to the FBI, or my political representatives. Been there, done that.
Thank God the alternative press is still able and willing to bring this case into the public eye. Fortunately for me, unlike Sunny I also have friends in high government positions (and even in the NYPD) who will do what they can to make sure there is a high price for my assassination.
I will be making a video, and I will be sending around a petition for an independent counsel investigation of Sunny's murder. I will also press assault charges against the cop who threw me against the wall and threatened my life. My main line of defense is to get ALL the information about Sunny out to the world as fast as possible, so that killing me will have less upside.
I have of course copied all the video, audio and documentary evidence to various people, and posted all the most important stuff on this blog:
So if the corrupt scum that killed sunny are reading this; the cat is out of the bag, and harming me would be all downside and no upside.
I thank you all in advance for working with me to get justice for Sunny and to keep me alive.
First step- SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!!! Meanwhile, I promise to take care. I don't want to be a martyr or a dead hero, I want to make music. I'm actually having a good time here. But we all have to draw the line somewhere.
Will Galison PS: no need or desire for letters of sympathy or concern.
PLEASE JUST PASS THIS ON!!!!!

Millions are watching...
From Will Galison
I have some mostly good news and some bad news regarding the "undercover
cop" incident. The good news is that the "police" goon who threatened
to kill me the other day does not seem to be associated with the Sunny
Sheu story. The incident turns out to be a bizarre confluence of
coincidences and well-earned paranoia.
The story was this:
I saw a van illegally parked outside of my building last Wednesday, with a police placard in the front window. Being acutely aware that my Sunny Sheu story is pissing people off at the highest levels of corruption, I thought he might be scoping me out with evil intent. Plus, the fact that Sunny was tailed by a silver van before he was killed had made me silver-van-aphobic.
I photographed the guy's plates and looked in the window. He came over and attacked me, telling me he'd kill me if I tok a picture. This reenforced my notion that he was a bad cop. The next day the van was back. I photo'd the van again and he came out of a building and started running after me.
That's when I posted my APB that I had been attacked by a cop.
I got in touch with NYPD internal affairs and they treated me with outrageous disrespect, I assumed it was because strings were being pulled at high levels.
So today, when the van was back I called the local police pct. t sort this out.
It turns out that the guy lives on my street (where I've recently moved). His wife is a cop from the 81st and he was illegally using her police placard to avoid getting tickets. When he saw me photographing his van, he freaked, perhaps because he thought I was going to get him busted.
I just spoke with the guy. It turns out that his van had been broken into a few days earlier and the lock broken. He saw me looking in the window and thought I was trying to break in or steal the van.
In any case, he was wrong for assaulting me and threatened to kill me if I took his picture, but I am happy to let that go. As long as he is not linked to the Sunny murder, its cool.
SO PLEASE REMOVE ANY PHOTO'S REFERENCE TO THE VAN'S PLATE NUMBER OR PHOT'S OF THE VAN.
I don't want to cause any trouble for this guy or his wife.
So the good news is that the van was not there to kidnap or surveil me.
The bad news is that I feel like a fool for alarming everybody about a misattributed and overestimated threat against me.
HOWEVER, I must stress that the facts and allegations in the Sunny Sheu case are not paranoia or coincidence based, and my concern about possible retribution against me is well founded.
The documentation speaks for itself. The cops did kidnap and threaten Sunny, the judge and bank did defraud him, he was killed by head trauma days after busting the judge, the cops and hospital did break major laws to cover up the circumstances of his death, and all FOIL requests to the NYPD have been ignored for nine months. And there has been no investigation of his death despite its manner being “Undetermined”.
Milton and I stand by every aspect of the story- and will post part 2 in the next few days.
I am deeply sorry for alarming you unnecessarily about my safety. Even still, I shall not underestimate the power of the entities that killed Sunny and still ask your support by distributing the story as widely as possible.
Thank you for your understanding.
Guess we will see what happens... To much of a coincidence imo...
