When one goes to court with evidence, witnesses and documents all proving crime, abuse or wrong only to find out the judge ignores it all you realize how bad our courts have become. The fact is the commission on judicial performance; the legal bars are all just fronts that help cover up these crimes by pretending to be images of protection. It’s a huge scam and conspiracy made up of lawyers. They’ve taken the crime of “ambulance chasing” and made it into “business as usual”. This is the way of Harvard and the legal bars create legal fees no matter the cost of life, family, morals or law. Law is to be twisted any way you can as to make a profit. Then abuse the statute of limitations to get away with it.
The system is obviously broken; once you’ve been victimized you realize just how bad it really is. The unbridled power of a dishonest judge allows them to manipulate their muscle i.e. authorities to aide them in their crimes and abuse as the federal government ignores your cries and reports of violations.
When Margaret Besen, a 51-year-old nurse from East Northport, Long Island, filed for divorce from her husband in March of 2010, she believed justice was on her side.
Judge William Kent’s preliminary ruling seemed like a first step toward compromise. Margaret and Stuart Besen, who agreed their marriage was beyond repair, would remain in their suburban Suffolk County house, living in separate rooms – and keeping away from each other – while sharing custody until a resolution could be reached.
But within weeks, the situation deteriorated. Stuart Besen, a politically connected attorney for the town of Huntington, had an anger problem, Margaret told authorities. The couple’s screaming matches left Margaret feeling intimidated and their children – a daughter, 11, and son, 7 – terrified, she said. So in August of that year she obtained an order of protection prohibiting Stuart from harassing her. Three weeks later, Stuart entered Margaret’s bedroom and hovered over her as she slept, she told police. They arrested him for violating the order, reporting that Stuart had stared down at Margaret with his arms folded on three consecutive nights. She got temporary possession of the family home.
In the years that followed, Besen’s hopes for an equitable settlement dwindled as she battled a series of harsh and hard-to-explain decisions against her. Though she could never prove anything, she suspected that the scales had tipped for reasons unrelated to the evidence in her case. If true, Besen faced what experts say is one of the most troubling threats to our nation’s system of justice: judges, who, through incompetence, bias or outright corruption, prevent the wronged from getting a fair hearing in our courts.
“The decorum and bias and the perfectly unethical behavior of the judges is really rampant,” said Amanda Lundergan, a defense attorney in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, who confronted a nest of judicial conflicts in her state’s rapid-fire foreclosure rulings – dubbed the “rocket-docket” – following the housing market collapse. “It’s judicial bullying.”
Judges in local, state and federal courts across the country routinely hide their connections to litigants and their lawyers. These links can be social – they may have been law school classmates or share common friends – political, financial or ideological. In some instances the two may have mutual investment interests. They might be in-laws. Occasionally they are literally in bed together. While it’s unavoidable that such relationships will occur, when they do create a perception of bias, a judge is duty-bound to at the very least disclose that information, and if it is creates an actual bias, allow a different judge to take over.
All too often, however, the conflicted jurist says nothing and proceeds to rule in favor of the connected party, while the loser goes off without realizing an undisclosed bias doomed her case.
“Everybody should have the right to ensure the judge sitting on their case doesn’t have a conflict,” said Mary McQueen, executive director of the National Council on State Courts. “It’s absolutely imperative that people have full faith and confidence in the judicial process.”
‘Explain, defend or apologize’
Hundreds of judicial transgressions have been uncovered during the last decade, with results that cost the defeated litigants their home, business, custody, health or freedom.
Some of the best-known cases involve judges who ultimately did suffer consequences for their behavior, including Texas judge Christopher Dupuy, who bullied four lawyers who filed conflict-of-interest recusal motions between 2011 and 2013. Attorney Lori Laird asked that Dupuy bow out in 2013 because she’d represented Dupuy’s ex-wife in the couple’s custody battle in Galveston. The judge responded by slapping her with 37 counts of contempt, demanding that she “explain, defend or apologize” for her motion. He later sentenced her to 220 days in jail, although she didn’t serve any time.
“It was the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever seen,” Laird told Contently.org. “It also caused great damage to both of my clients.” Dupuy was admonished in November – after he’d already retired and was sentenced to two years’ probation for pleading guilty to misdemeanor counts of perjury and misuse of government property.
But court critics say that one reason judicial violations are common is because they frequently go unpunished. When litigants ask a judge to back away because of a conflict, they risk being told no, then face possible retaliation, so many don’t bother. If a litigant or an attorney files a complaint with an oversight body, there’s only about a 10% chance that state court authorities will properly investigate the allegation, according to a Contently.org analysis of data from 12 states.
The analysis shows that a dozen of these commissions collectively dismissed out of hand 90% of the complaints filed during the last five years, tossing 33,613 of 37,216 grievances without conducting any substantive inquiry. When they did take a look – 3,693 times between 2010 and 2014 – investigators found wrongdoing almost half the time, issuing disciplinary actions in 1,751 cases, about 47%.
The actions taken ranged from a letter of warning to censure, a formal sanction that indicates a judge is guilty of misconduct but does not merit suspension or removal.
Click To Learn MoreActually removing a judge was a rarity. Just 19 jurists in 12 states were ordered off the bench for malfeasance, which is about three per decade for each state. And even that result is becoming less common, with only one removal in 2014 and three in 2013 among all 12 states.
The states examined – California, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, Colorado, Washington, Georgia and South Carolina – were chosen because they comprise a representative sample from different populations and areas of the country and because they had matching data for the years 2010 through 2014.
California, which created the first judicial disciplinary body in the country in 1960, had a dismissal rate of 98%. It did not suspend or remove a single judge in 2013 or 2014 and acted just once over the last five years, removing a sitting judge in 2012. Colorado’s lone judicial action since 2010 was a suspension in 2013. Texas has not removed a judge in five years, though it has suspended 23 for varying lengths of time.
One discouraging factor is the secrecy under which these commissions operate. Allegations against a judge are commonly kept confidential unless a sanction of some kind is imposed. New York’s CJC, for example, is prevented by law from disclosing whether anyone has complained about a judge, discussing specific allegations, revealing what evidence might have been presented or what steps, if any, it took to investigative.
When conduct boards do act, the sanctions usually amount to an admonishment that may be embarrassing but costs the judge little.
Among those still on the bench after ethical violations are Louisiana judge Robin Free. Free oversaw a personal injury claim in 2010 by a man and his wife, Israel and Leslie Robles, who were hurt in an oil field run by Houston-based fracking contractor Integration Production Services, Inc. The trial had begun when the two sides agreed to a $1.2m settlement. As he mulled signing off on the deal, Free arranged for some post-trial R&R at Casa Bonita, a hunting and fishing ranch in George West, Texas, owned by the victims’ lawyer, David Rumley. He flew there aboard the Rumley firm’s private jet.
It wasn’t Free’s first ethical blunder. In 2001 he presided over a fouled-water case against Dow Chemical, trying to resolve the matter even as his mother was a member of the plaintiff’s class. Free is still serving on the bench after being docked 30 days pay in December and forking over a $6,723.64 fine.
Raoul Felder, the well-known New York divorce attorney, served as a CJC board member between 2004 and 2008, helping the commission sift through thousands of complaints. He came away from the experience perplexed by its decision-making.
“I wouldn’t say [the CJC] is toothless, but it’s arbitrary,” Felder said. “It can be unreasonably tough on judges who commit trivial offenses while going easy on judges who are really bizarrely out of the mainstream, doing things they shouldn’t be doing.”
Judicial discipline at the federal level is almost non-existent. A Contently.org examination of the most recent five years of complaint data shows that 5,228 grievances were lodged against federal jurists between 2010 and 2014, including 2,561 that specifically alleged bias or conflict of interest. But only three judges were disciplined during those years and each got the mildest rebuke on the books: censure or reprimand. None was suspended or removed.
The numbers suggest that at least some of these judges’ rulings did not pass the smell test: 4,168 of the dismissed complaints were tossed due to a lack of sufficient evidence, bringing up the possibility that some litigants raised valid concerns but failed to find definitive proof. FULL STORY

Judge + Prosecution Misconduct: Biased and Unbalanced Justice Examined
The REAL Cost of Courts that Allow Money, Greed and Corruption to Silence Justice
Most people have no idea how bad our justice system has become and rarely does it get into new. Such as the obvious wrongs like OJ Simpson buying his way out of accountability. What people suspect is actually very true and very out of control today.
We have a legal system designed by lawyers, run by lawyers who profit off a broken system which they’re totally aware of how dishonest it is. Yet they go home to their families each night after violating, abusing and destroying lives without really knowing the depth of how terrible their crimes are.
In my case there are judges, lawyers and government agencies that have been fully informed of elder abuse and over $200k in embezzeled bank funds, fraud, perjury and outright grand theft stealing. Yet none of them stop it or even consider doing the right thing. They all look at one thing, how much money these crimes can make for them.
The judge who gets a home loan to rule in favor of the guilty with money. The police who don’t want to get involved in anything within the court system no matter how wrong. Lawyers who are part of a organized gang which is more like the mafia then anything else.
WIth their selfish, greedy views they have no idea that what they do can totally destroy a live. It’s not just the money but what happens as the guilty parties now use these dishonest rulings to build their side of lies and manipulations to destroy anyone who tried to expose what they’ve done.
Whistleblower rights are bullshit and mean nothing if the organizations that run them don’t apply them. Imagine going to court to expose your own sister is a liar and fraud. A con-artist and psychopath who has always been a skilled manipulator of people and a charmer. What people don’t realize is a criminal is hiding behind a false image of “pretending to be a good child doing the right thing for Mama”. So they don’t investigate the facts, look deeper or even believe hard cold evidence or facts. In my case an entire petition was perjuried by Sylvia Schmidt of San Diego CA and Christopher Overgaard a dishonest Glendale CA lawyer.
The evidence was so obvious as was the motive by a child who never cared or took care of her mother her entire life. In fact the evidence of her obvious hate of everyone in her family and history of adultery, divorce and frioulous lawsuits was never looked into. When Sylvia was disinherited by her father who died around 2000 she did not want to accept she had obviously shown hatred to the man she ignore for over 35 years. It dawned on her that he mother one day would do the same thing to this “BAD SEED PSYHCOPATH CHILD”. So Sylvia and her husband Gary A. Schmidt cooked up a scheme to take over her mother’s life and estate. It started with burgarizing Gertrude Gettinger’s home SEE LAPD Report September 2005. From which Sylvia and Gary A. Schmidt used Identity theft to remove (2) bank accounts with about $200 thousand dollars to which they claimed creditors had removed the funds and blamed it on Robert Gettinger. The fact is there is no evidence any creditor removed the funds due to Robert nor did Robert owe any such money.
Yet when exposed and evidence was provided to the court in the form of a legal petition which exposed even more crimes such as claiming Robert was not living in the USA and Sylvia had no contact. Yet Sylvia Schmidt had Robert’s contact info and was in contact with Robert. There were recent recorded phone calls, holiday cards and cashed sisgned checks all proving Sylvia had contact. Yet the court did nothing, never stopping the forced conservatorship. Investigating the provided bank names and account numbers obviously never reported to the probate department or court.
Chistopoher Overgaard the lawyer and coward from Glendale CA would then bow out where Sylvia Schmidt would hire Philip Barabaro Jr. the President of the Pasadena Bar to begin a series of lies and manipulations using his illegal influence on totally dishonorable Judge Candace Joan Beason. Judge Beason would ignore all the evidence and blatently admit “she sees nothing wrong”. She would even allow the dishonest Sylvia Schmidt to file a writ against Robert Gettinger without notice to bill him for her legal fees.
There are literally volumes of evidence and abuse committed and documents via doctors, nursing home and mail fraud committed by Sylvia Schmidt. The problem is when reported nothing is done. They all use the fact it’s being handled by the court however a disfunctional, dishonest court system. So who polices the courts? Commission on Judicial Performance You can forget them, it’s a joke that when reported with result in a cut and paste general response (we found nothing wrong).
What happens when you do the right thing?
Nothing you’re ignored
Your attacked to silence you
They try and make you look like a slut or nuts (discredit you and character assasination)
Make you pay for your honesty sending you the bills
Lie to police claiming your a threat
The guilty go on covering things and commit even more crime and abuse
What does this do to the real victims? Well you’ll begin to feel hopeless, abused and depressed Welcome to Legal Abuse Syndrome “Warning: Protracted Litigation Can be Hazardous to Your Health”
So says Karin Huffer, whose experience as a marriage and family counselor in private practice and the wife of a businessman who was brutally defrauded in the courts uniquely qualifies her as an expert on the subject.
Huffer discovered that many of the legal system’s victims suffer from a variant of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which she has termed “Legal Abuse Syndrome.” The condition derives from the abusive and protracted litigation that many plaintiffs commonly encounter in the courts.
According to Huffer, you may be suffering from Legal Abuse Syndrome: 1) if you feel deeply disillusioned and oppressed as a result of your experience with the legal system; 2) if you have been frustrated in your effort to obtain justice; 3) if you feel your dreams and plans for your life were torn from you by a system that supposedly was there to protect your rights and property; 4) if you fear that the system will defeat you at every turn and there is nothing you can do about it; and 5) if you feel you have been victimized several times over by the perpetrators, by lawyers, judges, bailiffs and other court personnel. As a consequence, you may suffer from tension and anxiety and have recurring nightmares, and you may also feel emotionally and physically exhausted, numb, disconnected and vulnerable.
Huffer does not call for sweeping reforms of the judicial system to eliminate the corruption that underlies its various abuses. She is no firebrand. Instead, as a dedicated health-care professional, she has concerned herself with helping the stricken to cope with their psychosocial problems — to accept what they cannot change and enable them to function once more as normal, productive individuals.
To this end, she has written a pioneering book that addresses the plight of legal abuse victims from a psychological, therapeutic perspective. Her objective is to move the victim beyond his or her predicament and toward a more positive way of thinking and behavior. Huffer illustrates her approach with the cases of seven victims who suffer from Legal Abuse Syndrome, detailing their pain and anguish and the various stages of the therapy they have undergone to recover their emotional health. While the eight-step program she describes may not remove the thorn from the hearts of legal abuse victims, it will deaden the pain and help sufferers rechannel any destructive thoughts they may harbor.
Karin Huffer (1995)
Despite her mental-health orientation, Huffer is well aware of the troubling conditions that exist in modern American society. On one hand, trusting citizens have been taught they can rely upon Constitutionally protected rights to safeguard them against criminal activity. However, betrayals by lawyers and the failure of courts to provide basic due process rights have assaulted their sensibilities, ignited their rage and turned them into victims and even vigilantes. Clearly, we have entered a time when more vigorous solutions are called for than just compassionate psychoanalgesia. SEE ORIGINAL STORY

Ramón Bojórquez Salcido is a convicted Mexican-American mass murderer and as of 2017 is on death row in California’s San Quentin State Prison. He was convicted for the 1989 murders of seven people, including his wife and two of his daughters, four-year-old Sofía and 22-month-old Teresa.
This checklist identifies the following as the symptomsand signs of psychopathy:
Superficial charm and glibness.
Inflated sense of self-worth.
Constant need for stimulation.
Conning others; being manipulative.
Lack of remorse or guilt.
Callousness; lack of empathy.
Sociopaths are often called psychopaths and vice versa but there are differences between a psychopath and a sociopath. Psychopaths, for example, are far more likely to get in trouble with the law while sociopaths are much more likely to blend in with society. And while sociopaths and psychopaths do share some traits, sociopathy (antisocial personality disorder) is generally considered less severe than psychopathy.
What is a Sociopath?
A sociopath is actually a person with antisocial personality disorder. Antisocial personality disorder is defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (the book which contains the diagnostic criteria for mental illnesses) as a cluster B personality disorder (those that are dramatic or emotional).
While sociopathy can only be diagnosed at the age of 18 or above, the following must be present before the age of 15 for the diagnosis:
Repeated violations of the law
Pervasive lying and deception
Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
Consistent irresponsibility in work and family environments
Lack of remorse
Psychopath vs. Sociopath
Psychopathy can be thought of as a more severe form of sociopathy with more symptoms. Therefore, all psychopaths are sociopaths but sociopaths are not necessarily psychopaths.
While the traits of each may seem similar, it is thought that sociopaths have a less severe form of lack of empathy and lack of guilt. It is thought that sociopaths may be able to form some deep bonds (such as, possibly, with family) while a psychopath cannot (Can Psychopaths Love, Cry and Experience Joy?). Moreover, while a sociopath would feel no guilt about hurting a stranger, they may feel guilt and remorse over hurting someone with which they share a bond. Additionally, it appears that some of the very antisocial behavior in sociopaths lessens over time while this cannot be said of psychopaths (How To Recognize and Identify Psychopathic Behavior). Psychopaths appear to have no concern whatsoever of the consequences, while a sociopath may learn to avoid consequences over time by reducing antisocial behavior.
Finally, the presentation of one with psychopathy or sociopathy differs. According to Kelly McAleer, Psy.D,
“The psychopath is callous, yet charming. He or she will con and manipulate others with charisma and intimidation and can effectively mimic feelings to present as “normal” to society. The psychopath is organized in their criminal thinking and behavior, and can maintain good emotional and physical control, displaying little to no emotional or autonomic arousal, even under situations that most would find threatening or horrifying. The psychopath is keenly aware that what he or she is doing is wrong, but does not care.
“Conversely, the sociopath is less organized in his or her demeanor; he or she might be nervous, easily agitated, and quick to display anger. A sociopath is more likely to spontaneously act out in inappropriate ways without thinking through the consequences. Compared to the psychopath, the sociopath will not be able to move through society committing callous crimes as easily, as they can form attachments and often have ‘normal temperaments.’ . . .”
Both psychopaths and sociopaths are capable of committing horrific crimes, but a sociopath is less likely to commit them against those with whom there is a bond.
FACT: Sociopath/Psychopath Hide behind False Images and Positions of Authority
My experience with psychopaths and narcissism began the day I was born. Growing up I had no idea what was in store for me or who I was dealing with. The fact was both my sister and mother were very different from normal. While my mother acted like a loving kind woman there was another side of her most people were unaware of. My sister even as a child had an evil side which my mother noticed but did not understand at the time.
As I got older I was told of accounts of jealousy by my sister Sylvia Gettinger aka Sylvia Schmidt where she would try to shove me as an infant off the side of a bed to take over. Then there was the event of her ripping a toy from my hands and slapping me across the face. I never could understand this hate, anger or jealously I was born into.
Yet growing up time and time again events such as this occurred. I quickly became aware of Sylvia’s manipulation and con-artist tactics. Then there was her total lack of empathy and love. She could be a stone cold vicious beast and then all of a sudden act as if she cared.
We were never close because she lacked the capacity to show love or be loved this was very apparent. She drove our family apart when our father Franz L. Gettinger figured out there was something really wrong with her. She took advantage of our mother Gertrude Gettinger any way she could and any chance she had. Yet one could easily see there was no love or kindness for her own mother or sibling.
Our father finally divorces our mother back in the 70’s when it finally became too much to handle. Years later I really began to understand why our father left. Our mother was a narcissist who always had to have her way. Worse she always had to have someone to blame. She would blame you if you did as she asked and blame you if you did not. There was not right thing to do with this woman it was always her way or the highway. The point is anyone being in a relationship with her would end up being mentally abused with her rants. When our father and mother separated Sylvia’s hate and manipulations came out full force. Sylvia would attack the man any time he arrived to visit even baring gifts. I recall Christmas when He arrived with two gifts for us and handed them to each of us. Sylvia threw hers bahck at him and began cussing at him in the worst, profane degrading language I’ve ever heard. Our father so disgusted by the obvious disrespect for his kindness became too much and he slapped Sylvia across the face. She would use this one event the rest of her life to hate her own father and stoke the flames of hurt with her mother.
Guilty Killer Chicago Cop Jason Van Dyke
Officer Jason Van Dyke is a perfect example of the problem person that easily gets hired and then hides behind a fancy uniform and shinny tin Badge. Police Unions have striped citizens of their rights by giving police too much protection to the point they can kill without any accountability. The fact the incident was recordered on video helped prosecute officer Jason Van Dyke who perjured his report and statements when looking at murder charges. This happens every time police kill someone, they’re not treated the way the public is. Worse they’re given a chance to create a story and change the facts to fit their warped reality.
The entire Police Officer’s Bill of Right’s and Police Unions are designed to help dishonest Police escape prosecutuon or accountability. It’s time the tax payer stops being extorted out of billions of dollars in legal fees, pensions, paid vacations after they kill and victim pay outs. Police and their families must be held personally liable. NO MORE IMMUNITY WHEN THEY COMMIT A CRIME, ANY CRIME.
THE PROBLEM WITH POLICE TODAY IS “TOO MUCH PROTECTION” WHICH HAS CREATED A PUBLIC THREAT AND UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
The Police Officers Bill of Rights
Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights
Note these made up rights to help a bad cop escape justice supercede the United States Bill of Rights
Law enforcement officers, except when on duty or acting in an official capacity, have the right to engage in political activity or run for elective office.
Law enforcement officers shall, if disciplinary action is expected, be notified of the investigation, the nature of the alleged violation, and be notified of the outcome of the investigation and the recommendations made to superiors by the investigators.
Questioning of the law enforcement officer should take place at the offices of those conducting the investigation or at the place where the officer reports to work, unless the officer consents to another location.
Law enforcement officers will be questioned by a single investigator, and he or she shall be informed of the name, rank, and command of the officer conducting the investigation.
Law enforcement officers under investigation are entitled to have counsel or any other individual of their choice present at the interrogation
Law enforcement officers cannot be threatened, harassed, or promised rewards to induce the answering of any question.
Law enforcement officers are entitled to a hearing, with notification in advance of the date, access to transcripts, and other relevant documents and evidence generated by the hearing and to representation by counsel or another non-attorney representative at the hearing.
Law enforcement officers shall have the opportunity to comment in writing on any adverse materials placed in his or her personnel file.
Law enforcement officers cannot be subject to retaliation for the exercise of these or any other rights under Federal, or State.
The three men were charged with conspiracy, misconduct and obstruction of justice for filing false reports in Van Dyke’s case, but the newly unsealed document points to numerous other unnamed officers who were at the scene or involved in the ensuing investigation of the shooting who allegedly worked to protect Van Dyke.

Killing innocent people and then covering it up with lies, manipulation of facts, character assassination has become the norm for Killer cops, police unions, courts and government. (Who work together scratching each other’s backs when they’re exposed?)
Balch Springs Texas Killer cop Roy Oliver is the typical trigger happy, reckless, unfit sociopath that finds his way into an authority position. It’s never been about hatiing all cops but when they help the bad ones to continue to kill and abuse the public they become accessories to their crimes. The scam and ploy is for the bad cops and their supporters to pretend the haters hate all cops.
Thousands of people are murdered by police who then investigate themselves and create their own outcome. See Killed by Police
Millions of people get abused each year and attempt to file complaints and are met by more dishonest police who have no business investigating or punishing their own. No second chances when deadly force is involved, how hard is that to understand? American’s don’t that they wear a badge; fact is any idiot today can get hired and there is proof of that.
The false image that police academies turn out a better cop is a downright lie, Trash in trash out you’ve only hidden the scum behind a fancy uniform and pinned a shinny tin badge on them. It’s understandable bad cops get hired but not when someone reports their abuse, is victimized by them and nothing is done.
The fact is most of the time when exposed, bad cops are allowed to retire, resign to escape all accountability and punishment. Their allowed to go on working at another department where they continue to kill, lie, rob and abuse the system. As they say “A leopard never changes his spots” and as well sociopaths, control freaks, bullies, criminals without records and insecure authority seekers with ego issues must be weeded out and banned from any authority roles period.
Why is it so easy to get deadly force and authority with only about 6 months of training? Ever notice the first thing police do when arriving at almost any scene is to recklessly pull a firearm? Shooting into homes killing victims then rationalizing it all with the bullshit excuse “we feared or I feared for my fellow officer”. How do we justify 6 months of training makes a life more valuable? When is enough, enough? They system is broken and how many thousands of murdered innocent people will it take till the government changes law, immunity and the process of rewarding murder?
Texas police officer faces a life sentence after his conviction for murder Tuesday in the shooting death of an unarmed 15-year-old black honor roll student, multiple media outlets report.
Former Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver fired five shots into a car, striking and killing Jordan Edwards as he and a group of teens were driving away from a party in April 2017, according to Dallas TV station WFAA. Oliver had claimed he fired the shots in order to stop the vehicle from running over his partner.
Earlier, both Oliver and his fellow officer, Tyler Gross, had playfully interacted with teens at the party after responding to neighbors’ complaints that high school students appeared to be drinking alcohol at the event, reports The Washington Post. But no alcohol was found, and conflict only arose after shots were overheard from a nearby parking lot, sending the revelers out into the residential street.
Testimony showed that Oliver went to the patrol car to retrieve his gun while Gross stopped one car as it was leaving, then attempted to stop another in which Edwards was a passenger, according to The Post. Oliver said he heard Gross reading the second vehicle’s license plate into a police radio, then Gross broke a window of the vehicle as he ordered the driver to stop.
Oliver approached and then fired five shots within one second at the vehicle, hitting Edwards in the head as Edwards advised his fellow passengers to “duck, get down,” The Post reports,
Jurors who deliberated for 14 hours rejected Oliver’s defense that he was protecting Gross, who said in court that he did not fear for his life nor feel the need to grab his own weapon, reports NBC News.
“I just wanted them to stop,” Gross testified, according to WFAA. “I was not in fear at that point.”
Defense attorney Jim Lane nonetheless argued during his closing argument that Oliver fired to defend his partner, reports The Post. “He wanted to be a protector,” Lane said.
In a tweet, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote: “This life should never have been lost.”
This was not an accident, it was a reckless action by a careless trigger happy monster who has no business with a badge or any deadly force.
Truth is American police have become militarized and trigger happy with total recklessness and abandon for life
NO JUSTICE UNTIL THE PUNISHMENT FITS THE CRIME
Before You start celebrating and think justice has been served, while you or I would be looking at death row or a long prision term. Police Unions, the courts and government (using your tax dollars) will become accessories to helping their own escape accountability and equal punishment.
It should also be exposed police all over America don’t want the public to know the image on TV and Movies is all glorified entertainment hype and BS. The image sold to the public that cops go thru lots of training and produces super protectors nothing more than propaganda. Fact is most are under trained, under qualified and unfit, but the goal is to find someone to fill the ranks, does not question what their told and goes scam. Speak out or try and fix it and your black balled.
The sad truth is had their been no body or dash cam footage officers would have perjured everything and manipulated the facts and evidence like common criminals looking at murder charges do. This is why police don’t like or want cameras, not because it really helps as evidence but because they can’t dispute it by lying and perjured police reports.
They Hire Monsters, they don’t just train them to Kill Jonathan Roselle Murdered Joseph Santos
South Whitehall Township police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter in the July 28 shooting death knew immediately afterward that his actions would come under scrutiny, according to Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.
Jonathan Roselle, 33, had been with the force since December and only on patrol by himself for five months.
Roselle told another officer at the scene that he thought he “f—ed up,” according to court records. Roselle added he “didn’t know what to do,” and said he should have just stayed in his police vehicle, according to the records.
Martin confirmed that Joseph Santos, 44, of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., was not armed when Roselle fired five shots at him. He said Santos’ last words were to the officer aiming the gun at him: “Don’t do it.”
n his final moments, Joseph Santos asked for help even as he frightened a motorist by jumping on her moving car on Hamilton Boulevard. That offense brought him face to face with a rookie South Whitehall Township police officer, whose order to “get on the ground” he ignored.
Walking toward Officer Jonathan Roselle, Santos, who clearly had no weapon, uttered his last words. “Don’t do it,” he pleaded, as Roselle unloaded five shots.
Seven months after joining the police department, Roselle, a 33-year-old Army veteran of Afghanistan, was charged Tuesday with voluntary manslaughter and surrendered to authorities.
At a news conference Tuesday, Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin called Santos’ July 28 death unjustified, based on the findings of a state police investigation.
“This was an act of a relatively inexperienced officer who held a subjective fear for his own safety, but he made a decision which objectively was unreasonable in light of the facts,” Martin said.
Roselle, who was hired in December and had been on patrol by himself for only five months, questioned his own actions immediately, according to court documents.
He told an officer and then a supervisor who arrived on the scene that he thought he “f—ed up,” the documents note.
Martin confirmed that Santos, 44, of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., was not armed.
He said police interviewed 11 witnesses, finding that Santos was jumping and pounding on cars and asking some motorists for help. Not everything Santos was saying was captured on the officer’s bodycam or car dashcam, Martin said, but he was heard pleading to Roselle, “Don’t do it,” before being shot.
Calling Roselle “trigger happy,” Arlene Figueroa, the mother of one of Santos’ children, asked why he was allowed to work without a partner, given that he was too inexperienced to handle stressful situations.
East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld MURDERED 17-year old Antwon Rose Jr.
Americans MUST accept these types of monsters get hired or put in place on a daily basis as Police, Judges, Prosecutors, DA’s, lawyers and government. It’s a broken system that looks the other way in order for psychopaths, sociopaths, killers, control freaks, liars and con-artists to get hired and move their way up the ladder.
When victims come forward they’re made into the villians and terrorized, abused and victimized by a system based on greed, profit and dishonesty. Dishonorable judges mean NOT JUSTICE in our courts always blaming it on law which lawyers and judges create in order to escape accountability and prosecution.
Perjury, ignoring crime and law is common among judges and courts today when it comes to profit and bribary. Thousands of victims every year go to court at insane cost only to find out there is no justice due to a judge that ignores evidence, facts and law.
East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld is charged with one count of criminal homicide in the shooting death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. But the real problem will be holding him accountable and prosecuting him fairly and equally. Immunity in the hands of monsters like this ultimately means he’ll escape justice and get away with murder.
The charge against East Pittsburgh Officer Michael Rosfeld is outlined in a criminal complaint that says the officer first told investigators that 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. turned his hand toward him when he ran from the car and he “saw something dark he perceived as a gun.” During a second recap of the shooting, Rosfeld told investigators he did not see a gun and he was not sure if the teen’s arm was pointed at him when he fired.
You can’t take someone’s life under these circumstances,” Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala said at a news conference.
The 30-year-old officer turned himself in Wednesday morning, was arraigned and released on $250,000 bond. Rosfeld, who was sworn in just hours before the shooting but had been working at the police department for a couple weeks, is scheduled to appear in court July 6, according to Mike Manko, a spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office
Manko said that criminal homicide can include any instance where someone knowingly, intentionally, recklessly or negligently causes the death of another person, and includes the charges of murder, voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.
1980 I graduated from the Police academy at the top of my class. Little did I know at the time I was becoming part of the most corrupt government in the nation. 2006 My mother was conserved against her wishes by her own child Sylvia Schmidt of San Diego County.
Sylvia was always about money and an obvious sociopath. I never understood her but via all her hate and coldness I knew down deep she was very different. A cold, calculating, con-artist who honed her skills working for years as a head hunter convincing people to leave good paying companies for positions in other firms, something she was good at and well paid. Sylvia was not happy with her first husband Ralph Velasco of Glendale CA a hard working , catholic man who loved her deeply even with her faults. Sylvia had an affair with her current husband Gary A. Schmidt (worked as a corporate presentation coach) while his wife was in the hospital with his first child Halley Schmidt.
Sylvia having committed adultery demanded a divorce and took Ralph to the cleaners even though it was she who caused the split and was at fault. Sylvia had a long history of going to court from suing an employer via Gloria Allred to petty real estate lawsuits.
Around 2000 our father Franz L. Gettinger passed away and Sylvia was disinherited for being estranged from him for over 35 years. This set off a hate and vendetta against myself by Sylvia because she didn’t want to accept her own actions had caused her to be disinherited. It was easier to tell herself I had been the one responsible for her loss.
I never knew how easy it would be for two people, a few lawyers and the Los Angeles Superior court to take control of the estate of an 80 year old woman who was still working, driving and living on her own at the time.
I had been the sole person to take care of our mother till I was 41 years old and got married. I married a Latino woman. My mother was not happy and since I was the last male figure in her life she looked at my wife as the enemy. She did many under the table things trying to destroy my relationship. It came to the point she insulted me and my wife forcing me to leave her home to live somewhere else with my wife. The timing and split was a perfect moment for Sylvia and Gary A. Schmidt to get involve and twist the stories to their favor with lies and manipulations. Sylvia thanked me for being there where she was never for so many years and said it was her turn. I never expect someone in the family to do what she was about to do so I believed the many lies she told until I found out she had started a conservatorship behind my back.
Perjury and fraud is far too easy, even after burglarizing Gertrude’s home while she was at work and obtaining banking documents and statements, home deed, address book, home and car keys, credit cards and cash was too easy. Oh yes Gertrude contacted the LAPD and filed a report having seen Sylvia and Gary A. Schmidt leaving her home around the time the items went missing.
With the documentation and personal understanding of her mother’s banking background and logic Sylvia used this knowledge to remove (2) bank accounts valued in over $200k to which she would simply say creditors trying to collect a small debt by me took the money from Gertrude’s accounts. So Sylvia and her husband Gary A. Schmidt formed a collection agency and removed the funds.
The next step was to shut Gertrude up and stop anyone from believing her claims as to the crimes and perjury Sylvia had committed. It was as simple as locking Gertrude without food in her own home, having stolen all the home and car keys along with her address book Sylvia called anyone and everyone claiming she was trying to help her mother who had gone insane. Sylvia had Gertrude’s phone and utilities turned off, it was easy to all the records. Gertrude told me she thinks she was drugged by Sylvia and Gary A. Schmidt. It all looked crazy and due to the lack of nutrients Gertrude’s mental facilities also suffered.
This is the part where Los Angeles County gets involved. APS was contacted by Sylvia via several letters threatening to sue if they did not act that Sylvia’s mother was a threat to herself. APS came and checked on Gertrude, she looked pretty bad so one thing led to another and Gertrude was removed by force from her home of 30 years. Sylvia immediately moved in and stole all her mother’s jewelry, cash and possessions. YES it was that easy, there was never any official court accounting because Sylvia gave the wrong address to the court so the probate department never visited to do an accounting.
Sylvia failed to report the (2) Bank accounts that were missing because she used those funds to buy property in Santa Clara Ca to hide the funds due to tax reporting. I was always in contact with Sylvia although not on the best of terms. Sylvia fabricated a story claiming I was this terrible person who she had no contact with and had no idea where I was. Sylvia’s lawyer the same one who perjured his Petition Christopher Overgaard of La Canada CA claimed to have hired a Private investigator to search for me. He just used his then legal partner Michael Jay Movius to pretend he contacted an investigator. The entire PI statement in his petition supporting Sylvia become the conservator was all perjured and fraud. The court did not do they’re own investigation as they never investigated any documents or evidence I presented. The probate investigators appeared to do nothing but investigate or downgrade anyone who contests the conservatorship.
There you have it, claim you can’t locate family (when all the time she had contact with me) and claim (with no medical evidence) your mother had a history of mental illness (when she did not) and perjure your petition. The court did not bat an eye and granted the conservatorship to Sylvia. Not too long after the lies ran out Sylvia was feeding me I got a lawyer and got involved. I then learned it’s all about false images and lies plus a court and law enforcement that won’t accept facts or evidence. Instead they rely on false statements of a polished liar and con-artist. 12 years later and $187k in legal fees I became educated at how Los Angeles Superior Court operates. As conservator Sylvia had the right to force heavy duty psychotropic drugs on her mother rendering her helpless and looking mentally ill. Yet it was all a front, the work of a good con-artist and liar who hides behind the false image of the “good daughter helping mama”. While she was doing noting but helping herself to everything her mother ever owned or worked for. Using the the con game of bate and switch to get the court to do as she wished was too easy.
There are supposed to be rules and code that protects the public, the problem is none of those rules or codes are ever respected or enforced. As an example Sylvia was given control of over two million dollars in bank accounts (not a penny ever went into a blocked account). It was as simple as filing a petition that the bank would not block the funds, so the court never enforced anything. Instead expensive bonds were used which were billed to Gertrude. The Lawyers who managed those bonds were notified about the perjury and fraud but ignored it because they want the profit from the bonds. Gertrude’s personal mail had been forwarded even before she was conserved (a crime itself) right after Sylvia burglarized Gertrude’s home. Gertrude never got legal paperwork or notices, was never allowed to appear in court (even though she wanted to).
The county forced their own lawyer PVP Violent Boskovich on Gertrude, why did she not do anything you ask? What you need to understand is the moment a conservatorship begins the victim loses all rights over her own life and estate. The Consevator gets control of everything, all the funds and assets. So you know who writes the checks? Sylvia Schmidt and Violet Boskovich now kisses her ass to keep this fraudulent scam going because if Sylvia is exposed the gravy train stops and so does the $250 an hour Boskovich bills. I presented the missing checking account numbers to Boskovich to which she responded “How am I to know where those accounts went?”. When all the time she had the legal powers to get those statements but pretended not to care nor did it matter. Why not look into $200k in missing funds belonging to her client?
The sheer ignorance of the judges and the vast number of victims (when you look for them) I ran into was unbelievable. The reluctance of the Probate department to investigate any evidence or documentation I presented in (3) separate petitions and six accounting’s exposing Sylvia’s crimes, fraud and perjury. The first judge did nothing, but the worst judge Candace J. Beason a well known problematic judge ignored everything, played Stupid. I have a feeling when I exposed Christopher Overgaard’s perjury and fraud Sylvia lawyer-ed up from a $250 and hour lawyer to a $350 president of the Pasadena bar Philip Barbaro Jr. Barbaro who was in fact connected I later found. I found You tube videos of Barbaro and Beason dancing at a Judges party. Plus victims came to me claiming Barbaro had connections to another dishonest Judge Aviva K. Bobb who retired early when exposed by a Los Angeles Times story exposing Guardianship fraud. The volumes of evidence that came to me went on and on but none of it seemed to matter no one listened.
The problems victims have like myself is the “rubber stamping of anything the criminals do”, the reluctance to act or uphold code or law, ignoring perjury, fraud and even two bank account numbers plus cashed checks that were never reported to the probate department. How can this all be? How can the LAPD Elder abuse division do nothing after a report was filed? They quickly gave up after speaking to the lawyers who ignored the crimes or perjury. I reported the abuse Gertrude shared with me to APS, Omsbudsmen and the county but no one acted or batted an eye.
It was too easy for Sylvia Schmidt and her lawyer Philip Barbaro Jr. to write a letter without court approval banning me from visiting my mother. The home threatened to call the police on me. This was all done when I began documenting statements with witnesses and letters hand written by Gertrude all presented to the court but once again ignored..
It’s too easy, everyone should be concerned as what happened to me happens all over America on a daily basis. Judges don’t do their job and turn a cheek to crime, elder abuse, fraud and perjury. People go to court for one reason, that’s justice and when a dishonorable judge gets involved it becomes greed and money. Judge Candace J. Beason was reported to the Commission on Judicial Performance – State of California with the same results as most complaints logged, nothing is don. Judges are in fact immune and above the law, Lawyers to some extend are as well. The courts are used on a regular basis to lie, cheat, steal, rob or “Isolate, Medicate and Liquidate the elderly“. They don’t follow law, they don’t respect the codes or rules and worst of all they just ignore anything that gets in their way. After ignoring crime, fraud or perjury the next goal is drag it out (creating legal fees) and wait for the Statute of Limitations to take effect.
The crimes and abuse of Conservatorship fraud go on, 2012 (6 years after it all started) Gary A. Schmidt (husband of Sylvia Schmidt) an investment advisor starts San Marino Wealth Management. During a mediation between me and Sylvia back in 2009 Sylvia told me Gary A. Schmidt who she feels is a financial genius would be investing our mothers estate, even if its against the law. The court is too ignorant to find out where $2 million dollars in funds (about the same amount that totals Gertrude Gettinger’s bank assets) are. While against the law the court never investigates or even knows where the funds are, (they take Sylvia’s word for it and any false paperwork she presents) they blindly accept anything from the person who perjured her petition and failed to report (stolen) over $200k in bank accounts. This is how Los Angeles Superior court operates everyday putting the elderly at risk creating a billion dollar scam industry build and run by dishonest lawyers and judges. It’s been going on for decades, with the addition of social media it’s slowly surfacing and getting public attention. The modern day Holocaust that stripes veterans and hard working folks who worked their entire lives saving for retirement and those golden years only to lose control of their lives and life savings. MY full case and info can be found here
It’s not just Probate court, dishonest judges and lawyers have taken over Family courts pitting husband and wife against each other with the sole intention of huge legal fees. Destroying families and robbing parents of their rights to their own children.
Janet Phelan and Richard Fine exposed how judges of Los Angeles Superior Court are being bribed. It’s not just Los Angeles but every county in California. The worst problem judges are sent to Probate because it’s too easy to do this to the defenseless, weak and vulnerable elderly. Imagine the scum that does this, their the lowest form of excrement in the world. The judges and lawyers turn a cheek and never even see the victims and how their abused and drugged to the point of death.
If you’re a victim you can research your judge to find out if their accepting bribes HERE
Think there’s not corruption in Los Angeles Superior Court, think again, hundreds of stories and documented cases of dishonesty among judges (most victims report the judges) but the CJP ignores most complaints and typically buries them. The fact remains the county is bribing their own judges with tax payer money to rule against you should you go to court. Check out the videos from Richard Fine below.
The other big Elephant in the room is the Evil Triangle of the Courts. Police never act when a crime’s committed in a courtroom and courts never act when police commit crimes. Look at the top Los Angeles Country Cop Sheriff Lee Baca

The Unforgivable Truth
CNN: Rooney: I suffered from elder abuse
A judge explains our broken Legal System best
“THE FRATERNITY “- THE CORRUPTION OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM EXPOSED BY A JUDGE
“The once honorable profession of law now fully functions as a bottom-line business, driven by greed and the pursuit of power and wealth, even shaping the laws of the United States outside the elected Congress and state legislatures.”
Justice John F. Molloy When I began practicing law in 1946, justice was much simpler. I joined a small Tucson practice at a salary of $250 a month, excellent compensation for a beginning lawyer. There was no paralegal staff or expensive artwork on the walls. In those days, the judicial system was straightforward and efficient. Decisions were handed down by judges who applied the law as outlined by the Constitution and state legislatures. Cases went to trial in a month or two, not years. In the courtroom, the focus was on uncovering and determining truth and fact.
I charged clients by what I was able to accomplish for them. The clock did not start ticking the minute they walked through the door.
Looking back The legal profession has evolved dramatically during my 87 years. I am a second-generation lawyer from an Irish immigrant family that settled in Yuma. My father, who passed the Bar with a fifth-grade education, ended up arguing a case before the U.S. Supreme Court during his career.
The law changed dramatically during my years in the profession. For example, when I accepted my first appointment as a Pima County judge in 1957, I saw that lawyers expected me to act more as a referee than a judge. The county court I presided over resembled a gladiator arena, with dueling lawyers jockeying for points and one-upping each other with calculated and ingenuous briefs
That was just the beginning. By the time I ended my 50-year career as a trial attorney, judge and president of southern Arizona’s largest law firm, I no longer had confidence in the legal fraternity I had participated in and, yes, profited from.
I was the ultimate insider, but as I looked back, I felt I had to write a book about serious issues in the legal profession and the implications for clients and society as a whole. The Fraternity: Lawyers and Judges in Collusion was 10 years in the making and has become my call to action for legal reform.
Disturbing evolution Our Constitution intended that only elected lawmakers be permitted to create law. Yet judges create their own law in the judicial system based on their own opinions and rulings. It’s called case law, and it is churned out daily through the rulings of judges. When a judge hands down a ruling and that ruling survives appeal with the next tier of judges, it then becomes case law, or legal precedent. This now happens so consistently that we’ve become more subject to the case rulings of judges rather than to laws made by the lawmaking bodies outlined in our Constitution.
This case-law system is a constitutional nightmare because it continuously modifies constitutional intent. For lawyers, however, it creates endless business opportunities. That’s because case law is technically complicated and requires a lawyer’s expertise to guide and move you through the system. The judicial system may begin with enacted laws, but the variations that result from a judge’s application of case law all too often change the ultimate meaning
Lawyer domination When a lawyer puts on a robe and takes the bench, he or she is called a judge. But in reality, when judges look down from the bench they are lawyers looking upon fellow members of their fraternity. In any other area of the free-enterprise system, this would be seen as a conflict of interest.
When a lawyer takes an oath as a judge, it merely enhances the ruling class of lawyers and judges. First of all, in Maricopa and Pima counties, judges are not elected but nominated by committees of lawyers, along with concerned citizens. How can they be expected not to be beholden to those who elevated them to the bench?
When they leave the bench, many return to large and successful law firms that leverage their names and relationships.
Business of law The concept of “time” has been converted into enormous revenue for lawyers. The profession has adopted elaborate systems where clients are billed for a lawyer’s time in six-minute increments. The paralegal profession is another brainchild of the fraternity, created as an additional tracking and revenue center. High powered firms have departmentalized their services into separate profit centers for probate and trusts, trial, commercial, and so forth.
The once-honorable profession of law now fully functions as a bottom-line business, driven by greed and the pursuit of power and wealth, even shaping the laws of the United States outside the elected Congress and state legislatures.
Bureaucratic design Today the skill and gamesmanship of lawyers, not the truth, often determine the outcome of a case. And we lawyers love it. All the tools are there to obscure and confound. The system’s process of discovery and the exclusionary rule often work to keep vital information off-limits to jurors and make cases so convoluted and complex that only lawyers and judges understand them.
The net effect has been to increase our need for lawyers, create more work for them, clog the courts and ensure that most cases never go to trial and are, instead, plea-bargained and compromised. All the while the clock is ticking, and the monster is being fed.
The sullying of American law has resulted in a fountain of money for law professionals while the common people, who are increasingly affected by lawyer-driven changes and an expensive, self-serving bureaucracy, are left confused and ill-served. Today, it is estimated that 70 percent of low-to-middle-income citizens can no longer afford the cost of justice in America. What would our Founding Fathers think?
This devolution of lawmaking by the judiciary has been subtle, taking place incrementally over decades. But today, it’s engrained in our legal system, and few even question it. But the result is clear. Individuals can no longer participate in the legal system.
It has become too complex and too expensive, all the while feeding our dependency on lawyers. By complicating the law, lawyers have achieved the ultimate job security. Gone are the days when American courts functioned to serve justice simply and swiftly. It is estimated that 95 million legal actions now pass through the courts annually, and the time and expense for a plaintiff or defendant in our legal system can be absolutely overwhelming.
Surely it’s time to question what has happened to our justice system and to wonder if it is possible to return to a system that truly does protect us from wrongs.
A lawyer from Tuscon, Arizona, John Fitzgerald Molloy (b. 1917) was elected to the Superior Court bench where he served for seven years as both a juvenile court and trial bench judge. He subsequently was elected to the Court of Appeals where he authored over 300 appellate opinions, including the final Miranda decision for the Arizona Supreme Court. During that period, he also served as president of the Arizona Judge’s Association. After 12 years, Molloy returned to private practice to become president of the largest law firm in southern Arizona. His book has received widespread praise for its candor and disquieting truths.
