MUST READ: Activist Sunny Sheu Killed After Reporting Death Threat From NY Foreclosure Judge Joseph Golia

Please do whatever you can to spread this story including sending it to EVERYONE in your email address book.  Help make this story go viral, and avenge the murder of a man who did nothing but fight for the truth.


UPDATE - ANONYMOUS is very interested in the case.

UPDATE - Henry Blodget's Business Insider has just picked up the story.

Complete background reading...

Now onto the important details of this case.

  • “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.”

Two months ago, Sunny made the video below, 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.  Her advice to him after denying his request for protection - "Be careful."

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

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.

Later, 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.  Video is below.

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


Video transcribed:

“Hi 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.

For 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.”



In this conversation, the coroner who autopsied the body of Sunny Sheu states that:

1) Sunny died of blow to the head which caused bleeding of his brain

2) It was impossible to tell how the injury was sustained, whether from a weapon or from an unexplained "collapse".

3) That he determined the injury was from a "collapse" solely on the basis of a "police report " that claimed a witness saw Sunny collapse.

Reporters from ABC news and the Blackstar News among others have requested copies of the Police report, and the 911 call from the "witness" but in violation of New York State Law the police have refused to furnish either document.

Below is another very strange conversation.  The officer can’t find the report on Sunny’s death in their system, then eventually finds it and as the commenter on the video says, volunteers that there was ‘no head trauma’.  The problem is there had been no mention of head trauma before his statement.

The mystery deepens.


ANONYMOUS is now involved.

Watch this.

So, Mr Sheu moves to Amerika from Communist China, gets bounced out of his house in a dubious foreclosure case, points out the judges conflict of interest, get's kidnapped, threatened, and killed.

Got it.

Hat tip to Daily Bail. Everyone needs to see this.

This needs to a story on the "mainstream" news. Why isn't it? They can't all be paid off by one judge... this kind of thing boils my blood. I bet if Sonny were not an immigrant it would be bigger news, too. F**K I am angry.

I submitted it to MotherJones. Might be too liberal for many on this site, but they don't seem to be allergic to going after stories of corruption. And they still do investigative journalism.

Thank you.

Mother Jones is great for investigative work. Liberal, conservative, it's all the same. As you know it's a false left-right paradigm. While both sides fight each other, GE and Exxon pay NO taxes.

Yes, this is an outrageous story that average people will grasp whereas financial crime is too complex. I hope there is justice for what has happened to Sunny Sheu, but I also hope for justice for the larger financial lawlessness. This happened to Mr. Sheu in 2001, right after the FBI agents assigned to financial fraud were reassigned to terrorism. Maybe if 9-11 had been treated as a criminal investigation instead of an excuse for global, endless war on terror, we'd still be living under the rule of law instead of the rule of banksters. In some way, we are all Sunny Sheu. We have all lost our house, and we have lost Justice.

We have to keep digging into the facts of this situation and spoon feed it to the so called "Main Stream Media".

Not just in this country, but as many as possible. I'm linking the damn thing around the world.

The Ponzi is global. The Jenga castle that supports it is global. The funny thing about Jenga castles...a poke in just the right place will bring it all down. This issue just might do it.

@ DB, Im out spoaken, at times wat to "Out-Spoaken"......but this time im not to sure if I would be sending a e-mail to the Judge....

The worst of the worst people in power dont tend to get mad, they get Evan... They also have a full staff willing to go out of thAre way to come after you if you send your anger you have for this Judge.

It aint that he will come after the e-mailers if im found guilty. He already is guilty, so I would think he will send a sworm of worker bees after every one getting in his face.

Today, every E-Mail address is traceable.............You can run, but they will have somebody waitting for you with a Pipe when you stop runnin.... RIP Sunny !

I believe that this case is just one of many that will occur. I would like to know more about this witness who claimed Sheu just collapsed. I would like to have another mortician look at the body. I do not take anyone hardly by their word anymore.
This case also requires people to be very cautious on who we fight against and which side we are on. The cases of law enforcement corruption are growing lately. We can't depend on them to solve issues or protect us. We can’t depend on government. This is apparent to all of us. The only real protection is in ourselves and the organization of like-minded people.

New York being a "judicial" state regarding foreclosures. That means a foreclosure "mill" law firm is involved. Which one?

Radley Balko is an awesome investigative journalist who has covered official corruption for some time, someone should get in touch with him on this. I'd do it myself but given the gravity of the situation, I think someone more eloquent should approach him. I don't want my shortcomings in english language to take away from the seriousness.

It might be a longshot but Lulz Security does requests. You might be able to get them to look into this judge – guy is in his 70′s, guessing he’s not that tech-savvy. If there’s evidence in the digital realm, they’ll find it.

This story is picking up steam.... I recall the judges in Pennsylvania who took kickbacks to send minors to private prison.

Here is someting I picked up this morning.

Report: Private Prisons Love Mass Incarceration, And Want Politicians To Love It Too



The private prison population has grown 353.7 percent in the past 15 years, according to a study by the Justice Policy Institute. Major private prison companies have an incentive to encourage policies which keep that number on the rise.
