The worst criminals hide behind an image, a badge, black robe, fancy name or position like a doctor or lawyer. All over America people are victimized by criminals who may not have a record, yet they get into positions of power and control. Once hidden behind that image of trust they’re free to abuse, commit crime and even murder with immunity. Judges are high on that list and hundreds of thousand of victims each year cry out about their crimes. Yet no one listens because they don’t want to question an image.
Police are trusted because of that image that their here to protect. But what happens when a bad person gets into a position of power? The fact is you can’t trust anyone below them in the chain of command. America is taught to trust an image but what is an image if the person behind it is in fact a criminal, dishonest and lack integrity?
One of America’s biggest cities is infected with corruption from police to the courts, from prosecutors to district attorneys. Why because when victims go to them with crimes by those with an image, they’re often ignored, terrorized or forgotten. All because that image is so powerful it’s often immune to investigation or prosecution. Lets not forget Paul Tanaka was a mayor as well.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Undersheriff Paul Tanaka was convicted in connection with a sweeping, federal civil rights investigation of corruption and deputy-on-inmate abuse inside the jail system, which is run by the LASD.
Tanaka was found guilty by a federal jury of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
The jury began deliberating Tuesday afternoon and reached its verdict Wednesday morning.
The 57-year-old was accused of leading a conspiracy to hide jail inmate Anthony Brown after the LASD learned that Brown was an FBI informant, feeding information to the feds about alleged corruption and excessive force against inmates inside Men’s Central Jail.
Tanaka, who is the current mayor of Gardena, faces up to 15 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on June 20 by United States District Judge Percy Anderson.
Following the verdict, U.S. Attorney Eileen Decker and FBI’s L.A. lead David Bowdich briefly addressed the media.
“This investigation was necessary to continue the integrity of the sheriff’s department,” Bowdich said. “It is a new day in the sheriff’s department.”
Decker said the corruption was an issue of leadership and the jury clearly stated it should not be tolerated in law enforcement.
“They have sent a very clear message that corruption within law enforcement will simply not be tolerated, particularly when it comes from the very top of those organizations,” FULL STORY
How the state profits off the destruction of family “State courts destroying Families, veteran warns!”
All over America millions of families are destroyed by a broken legal system. Not about justice or what is best for the children. Far often than less it’s based on how much money lawyers and the state will profit. Why would anyone in their right mind want to marry after finding out what really happens when it goes wrong?
This video came to our attention in regards to a man whose trying to do right, loves his children and country. Yet like so many others becomes victimized in a court of law. Why is it in America justice is based on how much money you have and not the truth? Where someone can go to court, lie and manipulate the system.
Soldiers fighting for their country come back to a system that holds their service against them. Abuses those who fight for your freedom. Stop the cover up and lies.
The World’s Deadliest Police
It’s a fact and has been long documented. Perhaps the reason so many people are murdered by police each year is a result of whose hired? The job draws problematic people, people who seek power, respect, control and deadly force. Often bullies, losers, mentally unstable, insecure, sociopaths and psychopaths along with those who feel less than end up with a gun and badge to solve their problematic desires to be important. This comes at the cost of thousands of innocent lives, many deaths which are never accounted for and hidden from the public.
The other part of the puzzle is how American courts treat killer cops. How judges, prosecutors, district attorneys and government who are generally in bed with police. When you have friends and co-workers who lack the capacity to be objective or fair there is no justice. You send a message to all police that because of your biased relationship with government “It’s OK to murder because we’ll back you up”. We’ll do all we can to make sure your life continues and you get to go home to your family. All the while thousands of families are destroyed, terrorized, ignored and kicked aside for speaking out.
This is how a system based on greed and money treats tax payers.
The Guardian has built the most comprehensive database of US police killing ever published. Compare our findings to those from the UK, Australia, Iceland and beyond
It’s rather difficult to compare data from different time periods, according to different methodologies, across different parts of the world, and still come to definitive conclusions.
It is undeniable that police in the US often contend with much more violent situations and more heavily armed individuals than police in other developed democratic societies. Still, looking at our data for the US against admittedly less reliable information on police killings elsewhere paints a dramatic portrait, and one that resonates with protests that have gone global since a killing last year in Ferguson, Missouri: the US is not just some outlier in terms of police violence when compared with countries of similar economic and political standing.
America is the outlier – and this is what a crisis looks like.
Fact: In the first 24 days of 2015, police in the US fatally shot more people than police did in England and Wales, combined, over the past 24 years.
Behind the numbers: According to The Counted, the Guardian’s special project to track every police killing this year, there were 59 fatal police shootings in the US for the days between 1 January and 24 January.
According to data collected by the UK advocacy group Inquest, there have been 55 fatal police shootings – total – in England and Wales from 1990 to 2014.
The US population is roughly six times that of England and Wales. According to the World Bank, the US has a per capita intentional homicide rate five times that of the UK.
California State Legal Bar Put Public at Significant Risk
The old saying goes “You never put the fox in charge of the henhouse”. This is common and acceptable for all businesses and society except for lawyers and police. Thus the current outrage and corruption going on with lawyers and police in America. We’ve allowed them to have power over their own. Imagine your loved one kills someone and you’re allowed to determine a fair settlement for them? it’s that insane and you hear it all the time “We’re investigating ourselves”. Sadly exposing their crimes and helping real victims get justice is being railroaded by the same scum which commits these crimes. These are spineless, cowards who have no integrity or morals. They’re motivated by greed and control over the public which they use to commit horrendous crimes and immoral acts. Yet federal government never steps in and puts a stop to them.
A recent state audit raises serious questions about the California state bar’s ability to protect consumers. The state bar is in charge of investigating and disciplining attorneys, but a 75-page state audit found major problems with the way the bar worked to clear a huge backlog of disciplinary cases against thousands of attorneys. The result, according to the California State Auditor’s Office’s, was “the State Bar allowed some attorneys whom it otherwise might have disciplined more severely – or even disbarred – to continue practicing law, at significant risk to the public.”
According to the audit, the backlog of disciplinary cases topped 5,174 cases in 2010, “prompting the state bar to take steps to quickly reduce it.” While the state bar managed to decrease the backlog by 66 percent within a year, the audit revealed that “speedier resolutions” came at a cost as the State Bar began issuing less severe punishments to attorneys. As a result, the Bar dismissed more cases and settled others with written reprimands that may stay hidden in a lawyer’s discipline file.
“That’s working your numbers to try and look good, even when you’re potentially hurting consumers,” said Ed Howard, an attorney with the Center for Public Interest Law, a government watchdog group that monitors state boards and agencies.
“The state bar does not do in any way shape or form, the kind of job – when it comes to disciplining lawyers – that Californians deserve and Californians expect,” said Howard, who has previously testified before the California legislature to voice his criticism of the California Bar. FULL STORY
We see how judges and police can abuse people who try and expose them such as Cary-Andrew Crittenden whose only crime was reporting crimes against a disabled woman. Crittenden exposed an even deeper problem involving a dishonorable judge named Socrates Peter Manoukian whose history shows dishonesty, crime and bribery.
Family Law Report – Richard Fine Part 1: Judicial Bribery & Corruption
Santa Clara California Prosecutors Rarely Pay Price for Mistakes and Misconduct
The Innocence Project released a report Tuesday alleging that prosecutors across the country are almost never punished when they withhold evidence or commit other forms of misconduct that land innocent people in prison.
The Innocence Project, a nonprofit legal group that represents people seeking exonerations, examined records in Arizona, California, Texas, New York and Pennsylvania, and interviewed a wide assortment of defense lawyers, prosecutors and legal experts.
In each state, researchers examined court rulings from 2004 through 2008 in which judges found that prosecutors had committed violations such as mischaracterizing evidence or suborning perjury. All told, the researchers discovered 660 findings of prosecutorial error or misconduct. In the overwhelming majority of cases, 527, judges upheld the convictions, finding that the prosecutorial lapse did not impact the fairness of the defendant’s original trial. In 133 cases, convictions were thrown out.
Only one prosecutor was disciplined by any oversight authorities, the report asserts.
The report was issued on the anniversary of a controversial Supreme Court ruling for those trying to achieve justice in the wake of wrongful convictions. In a 5–4 decision in the case known as Connick v. Thompson, the court tossed out a $14-million dollar award by a Louisiana jury to John Thompson, a New Orleans man who served 18 years in prison for a murder and robbery he did not commit.
The majority ruled that while the trial prosecutors had withheld critical evidence of Thompson’s likely innocence – blood samples from the crime scene – the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office could not be found civilly liable for what the justices essentially determined was the mistake of a handful of employees. The decision hinged on a critical finding: that the District Attorney’s office, and the legal profession in general, provides sufficient training and oversight for all prosecutors. FULL STORY HERE
This is just another example of how a dishonorable judge Socrates Peter Manoukian can manipulate the system, commit crime and break the law however local police do nothing. In fact police are used as muscle to stop the victim Cary-Andrew Crittenden from exposing the judge.
Reporter Janet Phelan has done several news stories to expose the corruption and fraud going on within Santa Clara County California. Cary was jailed Christmas day of 2015. Police are refusing to obey law or constitutional rights in respect to Cary’s arrest. They refuse to release copies of the arrest or case.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca pleads guilty in jail scandal
When the top cop is a liar and guilty of crime how can the public trust anyone working under them. Sheriff Lee Baca resigned to keep his lucrative pension and salary a common scam among government when they know they’ll be exposed.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca will plead guilty in a downtown courtroom Wednesday to making false statements, marking a dramatic turn in the ongoing federal investigation into corruption in the Sheriff’s Department.
According to a charging document filed by federal prosecutors on Wednesday morning, Baca lied twice about his involvement in hiding an inmate from FBI agents who were investigating brutality and corruption by sheriff’s deputies in the county jails.
Baca also lied when he said he was unaware that his subordinates planned to approach an FBI special agent at her home, the document said.
Baca’s attorney, Michael Zweibeck, said his client has agreed to plead guilty to a single count as part of a deal with prosecutors that will see him spend no more than six months in prison and possibly no time at all.
The U.S. Attorney’s office has agreed not pursue other charges against the former sheriff, and a federal judge must sign off on the deal.

They Hide Behind Positions of Power and Authority. Those who should be prosecuting rarely do what is right.
Far too many people are abused, victimized and murdered by Bad People who hide behind an image or title. The problem becomes worse when we don’t address the problem of removing them ASAP. They destroy the reputation of all involved when the system has no option for simple removal. They have too many rights, too much immunity and as a result millions are victimized. It’s a problem those in power don’t want to address because they are just as guilty. Mayors who really never should have been put in power, judges who have no business on a bench and police officers who go on and on killing, abusing and committing crime.
Who do you go to when these obvious Bad People commit wrong? When these obvious Bad People are friends of those in power and work closely with them?
Daniel Holtzclaw is just one example of thousands of cases which are finally being made public due to social media. Most are ignored and hidden from public view. Locked deep within court room walls, silenced by ridiculous gag orders and legal games by clever judges and laws who use law for their own personal gain.
Daniel Holtzclaw is a very rare and unique case where eventually something was done. Far too late, far too many victims and after the fact.
Fact is Bad People get hired everyday, they’re protected, made immune, lied about, rewarded for bad behavior and promoted. In no other business do we allow the same practices of injustice. The problem and solution is obvious, but those who should act don’t. Why, why do those same people we entrust to prosecute, imprison some for far lessor crimes for decades yet those with images and titles get probation and a slap on the wrist. Worse many are allowed to retain all benefits and pay by retiring or resigning.
Just look into judges in California who’ve been found guilty of crimes and abuse and never get prosecuted. Not one, not even one gets the same punishment as everyone else.
Good Cops know what’s going on in America, the problem is they know those in charge won’t support them. Their lives, families and future is held hostage by a system that backs wrong, not justice or law.
Government positions, law and authority are often used to abuse the public and help dishonest people profit or gain power. From one judge in a small probate court room that robs a senior of her rights, life savings and freedom by allowing dishonest lawyers and government to profit. To an entire congress that cares more about corporations and money than the people they serve.
Dwight Hammond, 73 and son Steven Hamond, 46, were prosecuted and convicted as part of an effort to remove the Hammond family from their ranch land.
In October Tri-State Livestock News did a story on the Hammonds and the sentence they received for inadvertantly burning about 140 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rangeland in two separate fires.
“The jury convicted both of the Hammonds of using fire to destroy federal property for a 2001 arson known as the Hardie-Hammond Fire, located in the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area,” states a Department of Justice news release cited by the livestock industry trade publication.
According to the article the BLM often worked with ranchers on collaborative burns to manage invasive juniper that steal water from grass and other cover. Erin Maupin, a former BLM range technician and watershed specialist and rancher in the area, said backfires by other ranchers had burned BLM land in the past and the agency had not taken action.
During her tenure as a full time BLM employee from 1997-1999, Maupin recalled other fires accidentally spilling over onto BLM land, but only the Hammonds have been charged, arrested and sentenced, she said. Ranchers “would call and the BLM would go and help put it out and it was not a big deal.”
On the other hand, Maupin said, there were numerous instances of BLM fires spreading to private land and ranchers losing significant numbers of cattle and other property. Maupin said she was unaware of the BLM compensating ranchers for destroyed property.
Regardless of Your Stance on Bundy Ranch 2.0, Supporting the Bureau of Land Management is Wrong
This week, militia members have begun a standoff with federal agents after occupying Malheur National Wildlife Refuge HQ in Oregon. The protesters are refusing to leave and are demonstrating against the impending imprisonment of two ranchers, and the overreaching policies of The Bureau of Land Management, a federal agency that has been appropriating land for their own benefit.
The organization claims that they are environmentalists and that their goal is conservation. However, they have made many moves over the past several years that expose their true motives. Not only are they responsible for killing protected species of animals, but they also regularly sell off land that they have appropriated to fracking companies that will obviously be destroying the ecosystem.
In 2013, it was reported that the BLM sold 29 federal land leases which covered more than 56 square miles in northeast Nevada. The agency itself reported that the oil and gas leases in Elko County sold for $1.27 million to six different companies.
Every single one of these leases was purchased under the pretense that they would be used for natural gas fracking, a process that is known to contaminate water supplies and destroy local ecosystems. The BLM claims that they are seizing land to preserve it for environmental protection. However, it is evident that environmental protection is not their goal if they are selling vast areas of land to fracking companies.
That same year the BLM was sued in California for their business with fracking companies. According to the lawsuit, the BLM violated the National Environmental Policy Act by turning over federally protected land to fracking companies.
Researchers at Berkley reported, “The Northern District of California court held that when BLM sold four leases in 2011 for 2,700 acres of federal land in Monterey and Fresno counties, it violated NEPA by relying on outdated environmental reviews that did not address the increased prevalence of fracking in California and nationwide. The court found that BLM’s dismissal of development scenarios involving fracking as “outside of its jurisdiction” was insufficient to provide the “hard look” at environmental consequences required by NEPA.”
According to Berkley’s research, the BLM manages approximately 248 million acres and is responsible for about 700 million acres of subsurface mineral resources in the United States. These lands and resources are not held for conservation purposes, but instead large areas are auctioned off to fracking companies.
The rhetoric and public relations campaigns put forward by organizations such as the BLM are crafted to portray government agents as environmentalist crusaders, when in reality, many actions that these organizations take impact the environment and its creatures in a negative way.
