On January 6, 2023 I was assaulted by a man named Andrew Johnson on the steps of West Roxbury District Courthouse while trying to ask questions to  his girlfriend – a criminal defendant named Katherine Peter – who was facing charges of violation of a harassment prevention order.

I immediately brought the video to the Boston Police Department in Jamaica Plain and showed it to an officer who agreed that it was assault and battery and wrote up a criminal complaint. The complaint went to a clerk magistrate who found probable cause and charged Johnson.

In November Johnson’s court appointed attorney asked the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office for the original video, claiming that I somehow altered the video that I uploaded to YouTube. I told the ADA prosecuting the case that I couldn’t give them my phone because the State Police took it when they arrested me on October 11. Judge Coffeey signed an order demanding that State Police give the phone to Johnson’s defense attorney so that she could examine the original video, who would show that it is the exact same video now seen on YouTube.

Today Andrew Johnson was scheduled to go to trial in West Roxbury and I was summonsed to testify for the Commonwealth. Unfortunately the charges were dismissed because the State Police and the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office refused to comply with the court order. The original video still exists in my iCloud, and I have it with the date and time stamp on my new phone. But since Judge Coffey’s order was to give the defense my old cell phone, the judge today had no choice but to dismiss the charges. There is another video from the courthouse surveillance that shows Johnson pushing me on the stairs, which was viewed by the Boston Police and was used to charge Johnson. However, that video was never preserved and the ADA told me it is gone forever.

Just to review what happened here today:

  • The State Police and NCDAO blatantly ignored a court order because they think they are above the law
  • They ignored the court order, knowing that it would lead to the dismissal of criminal charges in another county in which I am the victim
  • The person who benefitted from this dismissal is the live-in boyfriend of a woman who claims to work hand-in-hand with Ken Mello, the Massachusetts State Police, and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office

Compare and contrast these two charges of assault and battery and how they were handled by State Police:

  • I was arrested for assault and battery and sentenced to 60 days in jail after a woman made up a lie about me pushing her into a couch. She had no video and no marks. She did not report the assault until midway through the next day after calling Brian Tully, who she conspired with to lure me to her apartment. There is a video that exists, but it shows her refusing to let me leave her apartment while threatening to harm herself and her 4 children at 3 AM. I have no history of violent behavior, while she has had her last 3 boyfriends and her own father arrested for allegedly assaulting her.
  • Andrew Johnson was summonsed, not arrested, for assault and battery. He was given a clerk’s hearing instead of going right to arraignment. There are 2 videos of him assaulting me, one of which is still exists. I reported the assault immediately, without the assistance of a State Police detective lieutenant. Andrew Johnson has a history of violent behavior, including three charges of A&B on a family or household member.

He was also charged with A&B with a dangerous weapon on a household or family member.

That incident occurred in September of 2021 after Johnson allegedly assaulted and pulled a knife on Kate Peter’s then 14 year old daughter, who was seen on missing children’s posters just months prior.

Peter told police that she was applying for a restraining order against Johnson, but instead allowed him to keep living in her apartment with the 2 remaining children who weren’t taken from her by DCF. Four months later Peter’s 12 year old son witnessed his mother being assaulted by Johnson, and the boy’s school counselor filed a 51A with DCF after he stated that he didn’t feel safe going home with Johnson in the house.

Yet Johnson still lives in Peter’s household to this day, even though he is not the father to any of her children (including the 2 that were taken from her by the State).

The charges against Johnson in both cases were ultimately dismissed after Peter refused to let her children testify against their drug addicted de facto stepfather. She claimed that her daughter was lying during a Discord rant in which she aired private personal things about her daughter’s mental health to strangers, admitted to giving her daughter cigarettes to smoke in the apartment, and bragged about providing her daughter with condoms so she could have sex in Kate’s apartment.

“You can tell that she lied a couple times when she was upset.”

“Andy is not a batterer. He’s definitely put hands on me once or twice. He’s got fucking problems.”

“My daughter was off the rails to the point where she had run away from a group home and was gone for a week. We were finding drugs and alcohol in her room. She was sneaking boys in the house. I would try to give her a drug test and if she was already having an episode it would turn violent. She has thrown urine on me before.”

Keep in mind, Ms. Peter is currently being charged with felony witness intimidation for vowing to bring Andrew Johnson with her to court to assault me.

This is who Brian Tully, Ken Mello, and the Norfolk DA’s Office is working with and protecting in their quest to silence me for reporting on public corruption and the coverup of John O’Keefe’s murder. I’m not bothered that Johnson won’t be criminally charged for what he did, because he likely would’ve gotten off with a slap on the wrist anyway. I’m bothered that there are two tiers of justice that exist in Norfolk County – one for Turtleboy, and one for the people Turtleboy exposes. I’m bothered that our institutions are partnering with and protecting criminals, murderers, and at least 2 ratchet DCF Moms who constantly lose their kids due to substance abuse and mental health issues, in order to silence the First Amendment rights of me and thousands of other concerned citizens.

But at the end of the day I know that this blatant public corruption is going to make me a very rich man, so I’m going to keep documenting and exposing it as the federal dominos start falling.

  1. Thanks Dr. Kearney. Keep investigating and reporting on corruption. Officer O’Keefe will be remembered as a catalyst for change in a corrupt system. Jury still out on why he faced violence that night after his friend Ms. McCabe invited him over to Fairview Road. Trying to imagine O’Keefe’s surprise when instead of a friendly face and another beer he was brutally beaten. Prayers for guidance.

    1. Just my personal thoughts: O’Keefe wasn’t lured there for anything nefarious, just more drinking. Colin, who probably had a major buzz, decided to mouth off and start a fight. His parents and others present thought it was funny and did nothing to stop it. Chloe the dog went haywire and bit John as Colin and O’Keefe shuffled. O’Keefe went ass over teakettle down the basement stairs smashing his head and knocking him unconscious. Panic sets in and the adults realize the shit has hit the fan, and in their panic they cook up a scheme to drag him into the cold and snow and pray it looks like a plow hit him. It was pure blind luck when Karen, in her panicked search for John blurted “did I hit him/could I have hit him.”
      Then the evil wheels were in motion to frame her.

      1. I wonder why Officer OKeefe wasn’t protected by officers Higgins and Albert who spent that day in NY at another fallen officer’s funeral. A brotherhood of support went to Waterfall Bar then to afterparty. OK so the kid has been an ongoing problem but one of those guys could have stopped the fight, the fall or grabbed the dog — this didn’t have to end Officer OKeefe’s life.

        1. Once he went down the stairs and smashed his head, everyone there, including the nurse, knew somebody was going to jail for assault and battery at the MINIMUM. When John couldn’t be woken up due to a serious concussion, they freaked the fuck out, figured he was going to die anyway so just drag him out into the cold and hope it looks like a plow accident. The dog changed it from a drunk fight to a murder by grabbing his arm and down the stairs he went. Just my opinion. Maybe the truth will come out some day.

      2. No I don’t buy that for a minute. He was lured there and then jumped as soon as he walked in. You can’t tell me that those big cops couldn’t stop the little boy? Seriously? Nope, definitely it was planned.

    1. And your whore mother birthed a complete piece of shit coward!! If she wasn’t sucking dick all day for crack, she would be proud of you.

  2. You understand now. The Constitution is gone (see latest Ketanji Brown Jackson dissent). It doesn’t matter about why, but who/whom. As Howie said the other day in his article; your a white male. They hate you and will not support you.

    They will do anything to look the other way and stomp you out. It’s like ALL the other news organizations that refused to cover this case at all the past two years; they effectively lied by omission.

    The police/state don’t need to lie; they will just selectively decide who to prosecute and when. It’s pure evil, but now you get it and it’s evident in your interviews and writing.

    See Solzhenitzyn. Look him up and learn more about him.

    Goodluck- FreeKarenRead, FreeCanton9!

  3. Meatball, Meatball, Meatball,

    What are you doing??

    Anyone with half a brain would at least make the attempt to show that their office isn’t corrupt by complying with a Judge’s court order to provide evidence to the court …..especially when the Feds have a full blown investigation into you!!

    Yet again you think that being DA Meatball Morrissey that the laws and courts don’t apply to you and that you are above the law

    You may want to reference the arrest of FORMER Georgia DA Jackie Johnson who was arrested and charged for the very same crimes that you have been committing.

    Or howabout ex DA Mark Preston Jones if you prefer.

    There are many others like them that thought like you too …..note they are all now FORMER District Attorneys!!

    They are all now CRIMINALS!!

    Once again you have proven that your ultimate goal is to silence the truth about you coming out, we now have yet another case that you have inserted yourself into regarding Aiden Kearney the journalist exposing your office……do you think the Feds don’t know about you contacting the jail personally to get his Privileged Attorney, Client calls?? Yet you are paying Yellow Mello $80,000 as a Special Prosecutor because of the conflict of interest …..paid from the public purse!!

    Thank goodness the representative from the jail was good enough to give the court that nugget of truth eh??

    You locked up a journalist, using a honeypot to silence him, and even using every ounce of power you had you still couldn’t do it …..because the people in that county that do in fact have morals refused to comply with your demands ….of breaking the law to aid you in your corruption!!

    At least when the silver bracelets come out you will have a legacy to leave behind not one but two UNPRECEDENTED acts will be your legacy
    The Unprecedented interview on tv where you tell the public that Proctor does not know the Mcalberts and that you vouch for their innocence knowing its all a lie especially now there is zero doubt about the 02:27am Google search by Jen Mcabe!!

    And your second UNPRECEDENTED action was to try and force a Jail to hand over Privileged Attorney Client calls, and removing all access of communicating with the outside world unless you were privy to it all because you wanted to silence Aiden Kearney who has proven that every single report he has written about you all is 100% accurate!!

    Complete and utter VINDICATION!!

    Your last ditch attempt now is to play the victim by letting the whole world know in your own words how the lady that you admit targetting when she worked in your office has a vendetta against you …..yet you omitted that she left your office OVER 8 YEARS AGO!!

    You even lied to the court by saying you weren’t aware of a Federal Grand Jury and the witnesses being called to it …..yet an Email written by your own hand months ago proved that you did!!

    You lied to Ted Daniel about releasing those emails as part of a FOIA request stating that they could not be released due to them containing Government Policy …..again another lie!

    You were forced by the DOJ to hand them over because of your own lies!!

    If I were you Morrissey rather than concentrate on the Vendetta you have with Karen Read and Turtleboy …..turn your attentions to the fact that DA’s and Prisons don’t mix ….I’m sure there will be lots of people awaiting your arrival and somehow I don’t think it will be a welcoming committe with tea and scones!!

    Take time to reflect about every single immoral act, every lie, every backhander you’ve taken etc

    And ask yourself was it really all worth it?? Trust me your little political buddies won’t have anything to do with you, and then their sordid memoirs will all come out about you!! Let’s hope that you didn’t cut the Prison library budget eh otherwise how will you be reminded of your sordid dirty past!!

  4. Damn shame thats all I can say. Krusty and her douche whistle boyfriend both deserve jail but yet they figured out a way to put you in jail. What a system.

  5. What a public relations nightmare, Is there a legal eagle that can explain — does trial proceed so Ms. Read can’t sue the State of Massachusetts? Reminds me of something…

  6. Maybe the real punishment for KP and AJ is that they are who they are.

    Two disgusting, gross and pathetic individuals. Their lives are not likely to improve. Imagine living each day being so angry and obsessed?

    Clearly both have some serious mental health issues.

  7. The swamp here in Massachusetts is deep and dirty. The entire MSP and every DA needs an audit and a big time douche. Quid pro jokers
