Michael Francke Murder Mystery Solved (Part One)John Atkins for Salem-News.com
No murder weapon was ever found. There were no bloody clothes, ever, on Frank Gable, in Frank's house, or anywhere else. No fingerprints. No hair or blood belonging to Frank. Nothing.
(SALEM) - In the course of the next ten weeks, we are going to lay to bed the myth that Frank Gable was, in any way, guilty of the cold-blooded murder of James Michael Francke. We will do this, in part, by proving who really did kill him and why. For the one percent of you who may not have heard of this case, Michael Francke (as he preferred to be called) was stabbed to death on the night of January 17, 1989. In one of the greatest debaucheries in recorded history, numerous government officials conspired to frame a petty drug dealer named Frank Gable. And Frank has sat in prison for more than 23 years.
Ever since the trial started in 1991, there have been public outcries about how the government had been covering up the link between Mike's death and prison corruption. You see Michael Francke was the head of the Oregon Department of Corrections (prison system). He was murdered on the night before he was slated to testify before the Oregon Legislature. The government says it was a coincidence. Wink-wink.
After six months of chasing dead-ends, the police decided to frame Frank Gable for the murder. And they did a fair job of it. Still, the only people they were fooling were the twelve idiots sitting in the jury box. The rest of us knew better.
There was no evidence against Frank Gable... unless you wish to consider his big mouth... which only proves what a moron he was. In his futile efforts to either scare or impress those around him, Frank allegedly bragged about how he killed Michael. In itself, that was, perhaps, pretty compelling to some people. What you don't know, and the jury never really got to hear, was that no less than four other people also confessed to killing Mike.
Judge Greg West had been appointed to hear the case with explicit instructions to convict Frank. West refused to let the jurors hear all about the other guys who confessed to the crime. Absent that testimony, the jury did not really have any other suspects or even an inkling that there are always innocent people who confessed to crimes.
In virtually every capital case (murder), there are always numerous people who confess to crimes they did not commit. It, on some bizarre level, fulfills a desire to be important and/or to garner attention. It doesn't make sense to most people that someone would confess to something they didn't do; unless you first consider their upbringing. Many of these guys were taught to say dumb things in order to manipulate those around them. To these kinds of manipulators, it is just another dumb lie they said and they have a hard time grasping the consequences of said lie. Until it is too late.
No murder weapon was ever found. There were no bloody clothes, ever, on Frank Gable, in Frank's house, or anywhere else. No fingerprints. No hair or blood belonging to Frank. Nothing. Not one single solitary piece of physical evidence was ever found which would connect Frank to the murder.
So what got Frank convicted? In a word, corruption; specifically, government corruption. And that's a hard pill for some people to swallow. Those of us who know, all too well, that the government is corrupt, we fight hard to free a man who was unjustly framed for murder. The man is absolutely, one hundred percent, innocent of the crime.
Then there are those brainwashed dolts who sorely want to believe that the government is legit and cops could never cross over the line...especially to the extent to which they undertook to convict a man that they knew was innocent of the crime. Couldn't happen in America, these drones insist. In truth, they know the government is corrupt but they need to deny it so they can sleep better at night.
The people I find most entertaining are the ones who believe that they know it all and insist that the police could never have conspired against Frank Gable. These people proudly boast that, even if it were true, nobody could ever prove it. Wanna bet?
In the coming weeks, nobody will ever say that the police were not corrupt. Moreover, there will not remain a single person who will ever say that any part of the whole sordid affair is/was not provable. We will prove everything you thought was not provable, and a whole lot of other things which you would never have even considered. For instance?
Among other things, we will prove that the police coerced witnesses into testifying, that the police told the witnesses what to say, that the police fabricated evidence, tampered with evidence, and covered up evidence that would have led to a swift conviction of the real killers.
We will prove that at least four Judges were involved in the conspiracy to frame Frank. We will prove that the District Attorney and Oregon Attorney Generals were involved. We will prove that the prosecution succeeded in getting one of their cohorts on the Grand Jury and a corrupt Judge made him foreman of the Grand Jury!
We will prove that Michael Francke was kidnapped at around 7:10pm. This is a crucial point in the whole conspiracy as the prosecution insisted that Frank Gable was caught burglarizing Mike's car (when the car was both locked and the alarm was set) at around 7pm. In truth, all of the evidence clearly shows that Mike was killed around 10:15pm.
We will prove who the actual murderer was. And that is going to shock the hell out of you. For real, dog (I always wanted to say that).
We will prove that this corruption involved high ranking prison officials, numerous Appellate Judges, the Governor(s) of the State of Oregon, and even Frank Gable's own attorneys. We have their confessions. Are you still betting? Seriously?
Okay, I'll play your little game. Here is a sample for you to ruminate on while waiting for the next installment in this series: Both the Trial Judge (Greg West) and the defense attorneys (sic), Robert Abel and John Storkel, conspired to stop Frank Gable from testifying in his own behalf. So? Of the 317 cases that I investigated where the defendant did not testify in his own trial, 316 were convicted. The 317th man probably would have been convicted, but he died before the trial concluded.
These are statistics that virtually every member of the Bar knows. The only time that any honest attorney would dare to stop his client from testifying would be in a case where the man was mentally, and severely, deranged. Frank gable was as lucid and coherent as any man alive. Stopping him from testifying was purely a guarantee that he would be convicted. And they all knew it. And that is nothing less than a confession to Conspiracy to Deprive Civil Rights.
Do you still wish to bet that we cannot prove any aspect of this conspiracy? Join us next week for more shock and awe.
