John Ford UFO Case

In 1996, John Ford, the leading UFO investigator of UFOs on Long Island and the founder of LIUFON, the Long Island UFO Network, was arrested without a proper search warrant and has been incarcerated ever since. Now, for the first time, read the chilling tale in his own handwriting that was issued as a press release from prison. As the document is one hundred pages long, I have summarized key points in the latest edition of the Montauk Pulse newsletter. As the original document had to be scanned and takes up too many MB, it has been broken down into 6 separate PDFs. Please download these and spread them as far and wide as possible. John Ford’s case is up for review and he needs all the support he can get. This is the biggest legal/UFO case in history but it cannot make history unless you help make it known.

There has also been an entire website put up that is dedicated to supporting John Ford in correcting this grave injustice: The John Ford Initiative

Here is a radio broadcast I did about John Ford’s case followed by an interview with John himself:

    How about starting a petition to help expedite his release? What happened to him, being arrested with out a fair trial, is so UNFAIR!

    • Peter Moon says:

      A petition is a good idea but we would need to know where to send it to and what meaningful impact it would have, if any. Right now, he’s in Mid-Hudson Forensic Institute which means psychiatrists will determine his fate. While it is REALLY a constitutional issue, that mechanism is not recognized at this point.

      The idea of a petition has to do with the theory of a democracy. It shows PEOPLE support an issue and it sways politicians who control the body politic. A democracy is the power of the PEOPLE. Psychiatrists WILL NOT determine his fate if he is given a trial under the mental health laws of New York. It will be a jury. The psychs will have an opportunity to sway the jury, but he will also have a psych or two on his side and the attorney can cross-examine the shrinks. The constitution is also malleable and can be changed by overwhelming public opinion. The Suffolk County Executive would be a logical recipient for the petition as well as the Governor of New York with copies to the prosecutor’s office.

      Rick Smith has forward the petition to free John Ford. This is a very unfortunate issue. John remains incarcerated and his request for a hearing and/or court date is contiuously put off or delayed. He is now told a “confirmed” date for April 12. Once you sign away your rights, which he did on bad attorney advice, you have no rights and he is the victim of endless red tape. As UFO Magazine has folded at the same time it was supposed to feature exclusive articles on John Ford, there is no reason at this time to show optimism.
