Raghunandan Yandamuri Trial May be Further DelayedFor the first time ever, a Telugu butcher (who has already confessed to his killings) acted as his own lawyer in a capital case in America today.

After firing his court appointed public defender attorney a few months back, Raghunandan Yandamuri elected to fight his murder and kidnapping charges in court on his own despite not possessing a legal background and despite facing the death penalty.

Before his arrest on October 26, 2012, Yandamuri was a software programmer.

Yandamuri is on trial for the killings of baby Saanvi Venna and her grandmother Satyavathi Venna in their King of Prussia apartment on October 22, 2012 in a botched kidnapping for ransom attempt.

Trial Delay Again?

On Monday, Yandamuri stood up in the Montgomery County courtroom of Judge Steven T. O’Neill and made some unusual requests during a pre-trial hearing.

In a move that could delay his trial further, Yandamuri wanted the court to “appoint a forensic pathologist and computer animation expert to reconstruct the crime scene,” according to media reports.

Yandamuri explained to the court that he wanted to call them as defense witnesses during the upcoming trial.

The Telugu bidda is also asking for his DNA to be tested against three beer bottles that were supposedly found at the crime scene.

Although Yandamuri initially confessed to the killings (that he claimed were accidental) on October 26, 2012, he subsequently spun a bizarre yarn and blamed the murders on Matt and Josh. Yandamuri’s claims about the involvement of other people in the killings have not been found credible by Pennsylvania police. Continue reading »

I think you’re most wholly, completely and utterly selfish…That doesn’t make you mentally ill, that makes you an evil human being.
- Judge Nanci Grant to Telugu Butcher Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu during his Sentencing Today

Nerusu Found Guilty by JuryNerusu – Life in Prison

Americans learned a hard lesson today in whom they should welcome into this wonderful country.

From California to New Jersey to Florida to Michigan, it’s becoming painfully apparent to American law enforcement authorities across the nation that Telugus, a species native to South India, are unleashing a wave of violence and demonstrating a streak of morbid behavior.

Murder, in-flight groping, kidnapping, sex trafficking, wife beating, wife biting, wife kicking, visa fraud, ah, the list of Telugu atrocities in America is a long one.

And the tax burden these Telugu depravities impose on average Americans is rising.

Nerusu – Life in Prison

At enormous cost to the American tax payer, the prison doors today shut forever behind Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu, one of several notorious Telugu butchers in the U.S.

For the barbaric murders of his wife and two children, Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu was sentenced today in the Oakland County Circuit Court (Michigan) to life in prison without parole.

Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu was present in Oakland County Circuit Court of Judge Nanci Grant when the sentence was read.

Fortunately for Nerusu, the state of Michigan does not have the death penalty.

A software programmer, like so many of his Telugu brethren in America, Nerusu stabbed his 37-year-old wife Jayalakshmi Nerusu 59 times and then killed his 14-year-old daughter Tejasvi and 12-year-old son Siva when they returned from school in October 2008.

Following the murders, Nerusu fled to India, where the monster was nabbed three years later.

On June 12, 2014, an Oakland County jury rejected Nerusu’s bizarre claims of insanity and found the Telugu butcher guilty of First Degree Murder of his wife and two young children.

Telugu Whacko Blames Conspiracy

Nerusu did not speak during his sentencing today.

However, in a written report to the court the Telugu murderer wove a bizarre conspiracy theory blaming his psychiatrists, his previous defense attorney and his family members for ignoring and covering up his insanity.

Demanding an investigation, Nerusu wrote to the court:

I am not responsible for the incident. I was insane at the time of the incident.

Two psychiatrists previously examined Nerusu and found him sane.

$2m Tax Penalty

Nerusu is 46 now and if we assume he’ll live to 80, the Telugu whacko will cost U.S. taxpayers over $2 million in incarceration and healthcare costs. Continue reading »

Why is This Woman Begging?Rosemary Martoma with Husband Mathew Martoma

Hailing as I do from India, I’m no stranger to humanity’s most persistent crime through the ages – Benign acceptance of and frequent contempt toward fellow humans reduced to the soul crushing hell of begging.

Begging by Have-Nots

In my mind, there can be no greater mass injustice than the plaintive pleas for survival from society’s vast unblessed and vulnerable echoing across scorched plains, snowy mountains and deep gorges of our planet for thousands of years.

Babies and crones, clothed and unclothed, Black, Brown and White, sick and healthy, sane and insane, they look beseechingly into our eyes, seeking a few crumbs, a few cents, a few paisa so that they and their loved ones may stave hunger and minimize misery for a few short hours.

That the plague of begging has endured for millenniums, when Earth’s bounty is sufficient for everyone, is enough to condemn Man as worse than the most savage beast and dismiss all talk of civilization as epic fantasy.

The memory of one beggar from my childhood days remains indelibly etched in my mind, lodged there immovably till I shed my mortal coils. Clad only in a komanam (loin-cloth), the tall, old beggar with a small crown of white hair was in such a decrepit and infirm state that he could barely shuffle from house to house.

Leaning on every gate for support, the tired old man would stand for a few seconds, his right palm opening and closing uncontrollably near his scrotum, then helplessly squat down and begin a long wail hoping we’d fling a few coins in his  thin aluminum vessel that was invariably empty.

While all beggars throw out desperate wails, every beggar remains unique in his words and approach. I still remember the words beneath the old man’s desperate shrieks:

Srirangathin Ranganatha, Chidambarathin Nataraja, Amma-thaye Pitchai Podungu….Dhana Dharmam Thaye, Pitchai Podungu Amma-thaye.

Abandoned to the cruel whims of a populace’s infrequent generosity, the old man’s physical and mental frame was deplorable.

More than a plea for alms, for the old man from my summer years and for the overwhelming majority of beggars, the act of extending their palms for a few coins or a bread piece is actually a vain cry for justice in a callous world.

Begging by Have-Plentys

If begging by have-nothings is as old as the hills, begging by the have-plentys of society is a recent affliction blooming in courts across the U.S. by way of sentencing memorandums and letters to judges by criminals and their family members respectively.

An affliction that’s now ensnared Rosemary Martoma and several other Indians whose spouses have been convicted of crimes in U.S. courts.

Amused as I am by the spectacle of millionaires owning McMansions (Mathew Martoma/Rosemary Martoma), and winter homes in Colorado (example: Rajat Gupta) begging judges for shorter prison terms for their spouses or themselves, I can’t help but describe this phenomenon for what it truly represents – Begging for Injustice.

Rosemary Martoma – Begging for Injustice

Wife of Indian millionaire crook Mathew Martoma, recently convicted of securities fraud in New York, Rosemary is a pediatrician (non-practicing??) and real estate investor whose 11th wedding anniversary passed recently (July 5).

In a nauseous letter to the U.S. judge who will hand out a prison term to her husband on July 28, 2014, Rosemary quickly dives into a sob saga that touches upon herself, her three young children, love, separation, inner pain, compassion, vulnerabilities and devotion before launching into a begging fit for a short sentence for her husband Mathew.

Right in the opening paragraph of her May 28, 2014 letter to Judge Paul Gardephe, Rosemary makes no secret to hide what she’s begging for:

In writing this letter, I am sharing with you my innermost pains and vulnerabilities in the hope that you will better understand our family’s dependence on Mathew and render a sentence that minimizes the separation of our fragile family.

Despite the enormity of his crime, Rosemary is shamelessly begging for a token sentence for her husband Mathew Martoma.

So what if Mathew “cultivated and corrupted two doctors legally bound to guard confidential information concerning a high-profile drug trial….netting…as a direct result, a $9.3 million bonus for himself” (source: Government Sentencing Memorandum, June 27, 2014).

Ignore my husband’s crime, forget his conviction by a jury, overlook his Himalayan greed, disregard the bad example his egregious conduct will have on other hedge fund managers and analysts and just hand him a short sentence so that my children and I can be with him.

In plain English, that’s what Rosemary seems to be telling Judge Paul Gardephe!

Who is this Rosemary begging for such brazen injustice?

Rosemary’s letter to the judge tells us she was born in New Zealand and “grew up in the magnificence and shelter of those isolated rolling hills and peaceful Pacific waters.”

OMG, how poetic! Rolling hills and peaceful Pacific waters.

What could be more idyllic! Makes me want to hop on the next flight to New Zealand.

After a “fiercely protected and loving upbringing” and attending medical school in New Zealand, Rosemary moves to sunny California to pursue the American dream.

Ah, the great American dream!

How wonderful! Makes me think of the 52,000 children whose Central and South American parents wanted the same American dream for their young ones so badly that they took the grave risk of sending the kids with coyotes (smugglers) to make the dangerous illegal border-crossing across scorched desert filled with rattlesnakes and bandits into America.

So those 52,000 children must now be pursuing the American dream, Right? Alas, No. They’re languishing in American detention centers. Continue reading »

Uncle Tom 's Winning Streak EndsHa Ha Ha – Uncle Tom Loses

Uncle Tom was piling on trophies, both Indian and Western, like there was no tomorrow.

The publicity-crazy fella wouldn’t stop preening and his non-stop press releases were driving me up the wall.

Would there be no end to Uncle Tom’s victories against desis, I wondered while quietly dispatching prayers to Ram, Jesus, Allah and the Sikh Gurus to teach this publicity-mad prosecutor a lesson.

Finally, it was left to Rengan Rajaratnam, a Tamil of Sri Lankan origin, to end the winning streak of Uncle Tom.

After 85 victories against Wall Street traders, consultants and analysts including the likes of Rajat Gupta, Raj Rajaratnam et al, Uncle Tom today got his comeuppance! ;)

A New York jury today cleared Rengan Rajaratnam of insider trading charges handing Uncle Tom a huge defeat and considerable egg Chicken Tikka Masala on his face.

Rengan is the younger brother of Raj Rajaratnam, who’s now a guest of the U.S. prison system following his 2011 prosecution on insider trading charges by Uncle Tom.

Uncle Tom’s Hunt

Are Indians low-hanging fruit for Uncle Tom, I’ve asked myself a million times.

Are desis a cheap, easy way to further Uncle Tom’s career?

Folks, the two dozen desis below are the tip of Uncle Tom’s Indian ice berg (majority over the last 12 months):

* Devyani Khobragade
* Mathew Martoma
* Rajat Gupta
* Avinash Malhotra
* Suresh Hiranandaney
* Lalit Chabria
* Anita Chabria
* Seema Shah
* Samir Hiranandaney
* Dinesh D’Souza
* Purna Chandra Aramalla
* Sandeep Aggarwal
* Sarvesh Dharayan
* Sanjay Gupta
* Venkata Atluri
* Rangarajan Kumar
* Vadan Kumar Kopalle
* Anil Singh
* Dharayan Gupta
* Raj Rajaratnam (Our Tamil brother from Sri Lanka)
* Rengan Rajaratnam (Not Guilty – Our Tamil brother from Sri Lanka)
* Anil Kumar
* Shashi Malhotra
* Roomy Khan

Some of the above persons have pleaded GUILTY while others have pleaded NOT GUILTY.

As always, all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

June 17, 2014 will count as the worst day in 65-year-old Indian crook Rajat Gupta’s life.

Why?

Read on, sweetie!

Rajat Gupta Off to PrisonCrook – Off to Prison

Rajat Gupta – Stripped

As part of his entry into a federal prison today following his conviction on insider trading charges, Rajat Gupta was most likely asked to strip while prison officers did a thorough search of all body orifices for illegal substances (like what happened to former NYC Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade).

Prisoners do crazy things and you can never be too careful, more so when they come in from the outside.

People do wild shit like shoving a cell phone up their ass when they enter prison or bring in drugs and blades etc. Hence the thorough search of all prisoners at U.S. prisons.

Although it’s standard procedure, I can’t imagine the millionaire Rajat Gupta would have felt thrilled when ordered to remove all his clothes and stand for inspection before a prison official.

After a medical and psychological test, Rajat Gupta will most likely be asked to wear orange clothes, mandatory for prisoners. Kinda like an Indian Swamiji!

Gupta will be allowed to keep his eyeglasses.

The owner of multiple homes in the U.S. (a waterfront property in Connecticut, a villa in Florida and a home in Colorado), Rajat Gupta will now be confined to a dormitory-style cell.

Nerusu Found Guilty by JuryTelugu Butcher Nerusu – Found Guilty

As predicted by SearchIndia.com blog yesterday, Indian software programmer Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu was found guilty of murdering his wife and two young children in the family’s Novi (Michigan) home on October 13, 2008.

SearchIndia.com predicted yesterday:

Barring a miracle, Lakshminivasa Rao Nerusu will be found guilty and locked up for the rest of his life.

A short while ago, an Oakland County jury rejected Nerusu’s claims of insanity and found the Telugu butcher guilty of First Degree Murder of his wife and two young children in October 2008. The jury took less than two hours over Wednesday and Thursday before finding him guilty.

Nerusu, who was present in the courtroom, showed no reaction when the “Guilty” verdict came.

Life in Prison

Since Michigan does not have the death penalty and there’s no parole option, Nerusu will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Nerusu’s formal sentencing is set for July 3, 2014.

Nerusu is 46 now and assuming he lives to be 80, the Telugu bidda will spend 34 years in a tiny cell without ever tasting Dum Biryani or watching an Allu Arjun movie again.

Nerusu did not deny killing his wife but claimed he had no memory of doing it.

Nerusu’s incarceration will cost the Michigan taxpayers considerable sum of money.

Nerusu’s Victims

Nerusu’s victims included his wife and two young children.
