Bullies with Badges James Tracy and Jeff Payne Claim Police Punishment Excessive
It’s obvious to victims today that police punishment is a joke if anything and also the reason why so many bad cops get away with crime. They prove beyond a doubt that there are in deed two classes of people in America. Those forced to obey or else and those who don’t need to respect the people the law. Had it not been for the video evidence both officers would have gotten away with their violations and abuse by lying about it. Lying and perjury by police has become accepted and rationalized. Notice how the handling of the nurse has been labeld “manhandled” imagine if someone did this to one of these officers? The key here is what they really are going to do after saying “violated department policy and undermined public trust”. The department will rehire them and reinstate them after all the media attention goes away. Business as usual with typical “Imaginary justice” which is all for show and just a smoke screen. Why is it we’re sold a bill of “American’s all have rights” when it’s really just a select few who benefit from these so called rights?

Salt Lake City police detective Jeff Payne was fired and his supervisor James Tracy demoted for their roles in the arrest of a nurse who was manhandled and shoved screaming into a squad car as she tried to protect the legal rights of an unconscious patient.

Detective Jeff Payne was fired and James Tracy, his watch commander, was demoted two ranks from lieutenant to officer after an internal review by the Salt Lake City Police Department found their actions toward the nurse violated department policy and undermined public trust.

“I have lost faith and confidence in your ability to continue to serve as a member of the Salt Lake City Police Department,” Chief Mike Brown wrote in a termination letter to Payne that was posted by the Deseret News.

“I am deeply troubled by your lack of sound, professional judgment and your discourteous, disrespectful and unwarranted behavior, which unnecessarily escalated a situation that could and should have been resolved in a manner far different from the course of action you chose to pursue,” the letter read.

Jeff Payne is a 27-year veteran of the department, and James Tracy has worked in law enforcement for 22 years, spending nine years as a lieutenant in Salt Lake City. Attorneys for both men told local media that they plan to appeal the decision. (How many other incidents are there that were not on video or audio which did not get media attention should be the question) How many times to you need to get caught being dishonest for it to matter? How many victims are needed to stop a bad cop?

“I do think that Salt Lake City did a fair job of doing the investigation, and I think that their findings are, by and large, accurate,” Jeff Payne’s attorney, Greg Skordas, told the Salt Lake Tribune. “But I think the chief reacted to a lot of public pressure and scrutiny in making a decision that doesn’t fit the conduct.” How many times is it Ok to commit domestic abuse and can Jeff Payne’s actions be compared to the same?

Police body camera footage captured Payne erupting at nurse Alex Wubbels of the University of Utah Hospital on July 26 after she refused his request to draw blood from an unconscious truck driver who was involved in a head-on collision with a suspect fleeing police in another vehicle. FULL STORY

The Salt Lake City Police Association last week criticized the city’s handling of misconduct investigations for officers involved in the widely publicized arrest of a hospital nurse who properly refused to allow a warrantless blood drawing on an unconscious patient.

In a letter addressed to Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski and Police Chief Mike Brown, the union specifically denounced what it called the “premature release of body cam footage,” which it claimed “corrupted” the investigations of two Salt Lake City officers. ( Actually the truth is it helped get justice and stopped a cover up)

Given that police unions are often the most vocal opponents of body camera use in general, it is hardly surprising the Salt Lake City Police Association is less than thrilled with the video’s release. What is surprising, however, is the association’s decision to argue about body cameras in this particular case.

Make sure you view the first video below before you take sides. Lets not forget the part about what they’ll do if she or the hospital does not do what they say? Is this extortion or again is this good police work and behavior?

What Do Harvey Weinstein and Tani Cantil-Sakauye Have in Common? Abuse of Power
“California Judges Are High on the Predator Scale”

A must read article how we’ve exposed just the tip of the iceberg in “Abuse of Power” and victimizing people with money and power.
CORRUPTION WATCH-The most compelling words in Ronan Farrow’s article about the predator Harvey Weinstein in the October 23, 2017 issue of The New Yorker magazine are its first three: Abuses of Power. The salacious aspect of the story may initially attract public attention, but the essence of the it revolves around power – the abuse of power. And that is where the focus should remain. A predatory abuse of power permeates our entire society – a society that has made a lying pussy-grabber its Predator-in-Chief. 

The largest class of people who have been victims of these predators have been women and they have served notice on the nation that they are removing themselves from the victim category.

Ronan Farrow’s article details how Weinstein used his power to enlist the aid of others to hide his behavior and make sure his victims would be silenced. Everyone around him was corrupted; some actively helped Weinstein; others pretended not to know. By using the threat of ruining peoples’ careers and imposing confidentiality agreements, he forced his victims to be silent. One interesting aspect of these confidentiality agreements is that many of the victims seem not to have brought lawsuits, but were merely telling people.

Did Weinstein’s lawyers initiate the contact with these victims knowing that confidentiality agreements would be the end result? Such behavior would seem to destroy any confidentiality between Weinstein and his attorneys since they would be aiding and abetting him to cover-up his criminal behavior.

There is a world of difference between a criminal coming to his attorney because he is being civilly sued — in which case the attorney-client confidentiality privilege attaches — and a client’s coming to an attorney so that the attorney will proactively conceal evidence of a crime. Predators are adept at polluting everyone around them. Bribery occurs when the attorney (1) gives or offers a witness, (2) cash or something of value, (3) with corrupt intent, (4) to influence the testimony of that witness. Penal Code § 137(a).

Like Harvey Weinstein’s friends and associates, many court personnel also jettison their ethics and support predators. As Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis wrote:

“Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.”

As the disinfecting sunlight of #MeToo shows, predators and their victims are everywhere. Just recently, women in Sacramento spoke out about the predators in and around state government.

California Judges Are High on the Predator Scale

Some of the nation’s worst predators are found in the California judiciary. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (Federal court) has accused the state courts of having “an epidemic of misconduct.”   

Listening to a direct link to that 9th Circuit Hearing, it is apparent that the persons that the three federal judges are pointing to are both women: former CA Attorney General Kamala Harris and California State Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye. This highlights the important fact that all power abuses.

Then Attorney General Harris had done nothing to the prosecutor who not only used a lying jail-house informant but who had also taken the stand and committed perjury to bolster the lying informant’s credibility. As Tani Cantil-Sakauye had been California Chief Justice for four years, the indictment that the entire California judiciary had a “epidemic of misconduct” was directed at her, the person who presided over the entire system. As the federal judges made clear, a state does not have an epidemic of misconduct without the complicity of the judges and justices.

But wait, doesn’t California have a Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP) to ferret out judicial misconduct? Not really. Don’t judge a book by its cover. (Harvey Weinstein would only wish he had such an effective system as CJP to intimidate his victims.) From its current machinations, the CJP continues to champion California’s judicial predators.

The CJP is Actively Shields Judicial Predators

A lot can be learned about the CJP’s predatory ways by examining its fight to prevent the State Auditor from conducting an audit of its activities. Government Code § 8545.2 requires public agencies — “whether created by the California Constitution or otherwise” — to grant the Auditor access to all agency documents for purposes of an audit or investigation, including documents that “may lawfully be kept confidential as a result of a statutory or common law privilege or any other provision of law.”

To protect judicial predators from sunlight, the CJP has sued the State Auditor in the case: Commission on Judicial Performance v Elaine M Howle, San Francisco Super Court # 16-515308.  The grounds are that its files are “confidential,” ignoring the fact that the statute authorizes the Auditor to review confidential files.

The CJP invents a special form of confidentiality for itself which it terms “absolute immunity.” This claim of absolute confidentiality is typical behavior of abusers like Harvey Weinstein who also thought that he was special and he could continue doing what he was “used to doing” – being a sexual predator. The CJP Rule 102 which sets forth the scope of its “confidentiality” does not use the word “absolute.” In fact, Rule 102 contains sixteen confidentiality exceptions, among them, “information (to prosecuting authorities) which reveals possible criminal conduct by the judge or former judge or by any other individual or entity.” Rule 102(g)

The State Auditor does not publish these files; it reviews them in order to conduct its audit of how the CJP is behaving. The only people who can be “harmed” by the auditor’s review are the CJP personnel and cohorts and judges and justices who may have received special favors. How many complaints against the Chief Justice have been squelched? 

Evidence That CJP Covers-up for Predatory Judges

When CJP receives thousands upon thousands of complaints with virtually no removals, something is amiss (11 judicial removals since 1995). After the federal courts have found an epidemic of misconduct which it attributes to the judges, the handwriting is on the wall. The CJP has been protecting the judicial predators who have been preying upon the public for decades. There cannot be an epidemic of misconduct without wrong doers.

What are the State Auditor’s duties when it uncovers criminal behavior?

Traditionally, one reason to audit a public agency like the CJP is detection of criminal behavior.  When the Audit finds evidence of bribery, does the Auditor turn a deaf ear? When the Audit finds that the CJP allows serious charges to be dismissed without investigation, does the Auditor say nothing?  When the Audit shows that the CJP accumulates multiple complaints against a judge and then waits until the judge retires before conducting an investigation, does the Auditor turn a blind eye? If the State Auditor remains deaf, dumb and blind, what is the role of the State Auditor?

No, the Auditor should take action. Allowing the State Auditor to see the CJP records will expose the decades long cover-up of the epidemic of predatory behavior which the federal court has decried.  And just like with Harvey Weinstein we know how the house of cards falls when confidentiality finally falls.

Louis Brandeis’ “sunlight of publicity is the best disinfectant” proclamation must make him the CJP’s most disliked jurist.

Contra Costa Judge Bruce Mills unfit to serve

Judge Bruce C. Mills
California is well known for corruption and fraud which takes place in our courts by criminals like Judge Bruce C. Mills. A poster child for how you can take a dishonest person and drap them in a black robe and call them honorable when in fact they have no honor at all. What’s worse is what a joke the Commission on Judicial Performance is, how they ignore valid complaints and refuse to protect the public.

In a decision First Amendment experts have dubbed “outrageous,” a Contra Costa Superior Court judge Bruce C. Mills jailed a San Ramon man for writing about his divorce on the internet — even though his writings were based on material publicly available in court files.

The judge Bruce C. Mills, insisted in his decision that “matters that are put into court pleadings and brought up in oral argument before the court do not become public thereby” — a position that lawyers say fundamentally misunderstands the nature of court records.

Joseph Sweeney, a judicial reform advocate, served 13 days in County Jail in August after Judge Bruce C. Mills’ ruling, which found that Sweeney’s web postings had violated another judge’s restraining order not to disclose the contents of his ex-wife’s cellphone or computer. The postings described Sweeney’s realizations about her medical history and contact with others that led to the collapse of the marriage.

The information became publicly available in court documents when it was filed without seal by his ex-wife, and in an online appellate court decision upholding the order. As a result, “the cat is out of the bag and the general presumption that publicly filed documents may be read by all carries the day,” said Floyd Abrams, considered among the top First Amendment lawyers in the United States, in an email to this newspaper.

Several other free speech experts also said Judge Bruce C. Mills’ assertion that the information was not public record is flatly wrong. Martin Garbus, widely considered one of the top trial attorneys in the United States, said court documents filed without a sealing order are legally just as public as newspaper articles.

A report cataloging serial acts of misconduct spanning more than 10 years by Judge Bruce C. Mills has been leaked to the public by a court watchdog and whistleblower group.

The 51-page dossier collected both public and “secret” discipline prosecutions against judge Bruce C. Mills  by the Commission on Judicial Performance, the state agency responsible for judge oversight and accountability. The report is embedded at the end of this post.

The report reveals that in addition to two well known public disciplinary actions taken against the veteran Contra Costa County jurist, Mills was also found guilty in three additional incidents where the type of discipline and name of the offender were “private” and not revealed to the public.

The group identified judge Bruce C. Mills as the offending judge in the secret proceedings by reverse engineering details from the public disciplinary actions and cross referencing the information with old CJP annual reports. The acts of public and private misconduct occurred in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013.

Contra Costa County judge Bruce C. Mills who has previously been disciplined
five times by a judicial commission now faces two new charges of ethics violations.

The San Francisco-based California Commission on Judicial Performance said Tuesday it initiated formal proceedings against Superior Court Judge Bruce Mills in connection with his conduct in two cases.

judge Bruce C. Mills, 62, a judge since 1995, has until Oct. 31 to file a written answer to the administrative charges. The agency will then schedule a hearing before a panel of special masters appointed by the California Supreme Court.

All Over America Proven Incidents of Lying Can’t Be Wrong, Do Cops Lie?

All Over America Proven Incidents of Lying Can't Be Wrong Do Cops Lie?

All Over America Proven Incidents of Lying Can’t Be Wrong, Do Cops Lie?
We’ve all seen it on TV or witnessed it the fact is “perjury” by public servants is out of control.

“Why do they do it? The main reason they do it, historically and now, is they can get away with it.”
“Cameras prove cops lie, and there are more cameras out in the world today than ever before.”

A cop’s word is often the difference between a person’s freedom and imprisonment. In many cases, an officer and a defendant tell diametrically opposed versions of the same incident — a “swearing contest,” lawyers call it — and a judge or jury is left to decide whom to believe: the professional law enforcement agent who has testified in dozens of trials or the undereducated, underemployed, probably black or Latino guy from an “area known for narcotics trafficking” accused of breaking the law? The scale is even more unbalanced when the word of the defendant is lined up against the words of not one but two, three, four, five professional law enforcement agents. “The words of the police officers would always prevail over the words of poor black and brown folks,” said Craig Futterman, a professor at the University of Chicago law school.

Police aren’t supposed to take sides in court, but of course they do. It serves their purpose to defend the legitimacy of the arrest and the evidence they gathered and handed to prosecutors. They do the investigative legwork for prosecutors and meet with them to discuss case strategy. It’s no surprise, then, that cops often emerge as the prosecution’s best witnesses, their experience on the stand contrasting with a defendant’s understandable nervousness, their veneer of neutrality hiding their personal belief in a defendant’s guilt.

“In criminal cases officers are given a higher degree of credibility,” said Tom Grover, a former Albuquerque Police Department sergeant who now works as a defense lawyer. “They are seen as having no stakes in the matter, of just doing their duty.”

Some jurors see right through this veneer. An officer’s usual aura of credibility doesn’t hold up as well in cities with large black and Latino communities filled with residents who have long distrusted police, said Futterman. Derwyn Bunton, chief public defender in New Orleans, can recount many occasions when, during jury selection, the judge would ask the roomful of prospects, “Who would you trust more: your neighbor or a police officer?” “Very often people chuckle out loud,” he said. “And this was before video evidence became as big as it is today.”

Definition of Perjury
:The voluntary violation of an oath or vow either by swearing to what is untrue or by omission to do what has been promised under oath :false swearing

Perjury is considered a serious offense as it can be used to usurp the power of the courts, resulting in miscarriages of justice. In the United States, for example, the general perjury statute under Federal law classifies perjury as a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to five years. The California Penal Code allows for perjury to be a capital offense in cases causing wrongful execution. Perjury causing the wrongful execution of another is normally punishable by death in countries that retain the death penalty. Perjury is considered a felony in most U.S. states, as well as most Australian states.

Why is nothing done when public servants commit perjury via false statements or writing false police reports?

SOLUTION: All Tax paid public servants should be digitally recorded for their own protection and should be tax payer accessable in case any information or evidence comes into question. Millions will be saved in lawsuits, injustices, abuse of power and crimes by dishonest public servants.

What Do Harvey Weinstein, Sheriff Lee Baca and Officer Ray Tensing Have In Common?
What Americans need to see is how a calulated, manipulated system is used for Police and the Rich to avoid punishment. There is no equal justice in America, there never was. Lawyers and money are in the fact the root to all evil and if you have government (power) or money (enough to buy justice) . There is a game being played in America at the cost of justice, lives, tax dollars and every American’s rights.

The game and delays done on purpose (Money and Courts) use common catch phrases like:
We’ll investigate ourselves
This is a disease not my fault
It’s our training not my fault
Spread false information
Destroy Victims characters
Don’t believe what you see or hear the courts will decide
He’s in treatment

Innocent until proven guilty is a big lie.
When you do it, police treat you as guilty without a trial, full evidence or the facts. However when they do it none of that matters they get protected, privelages and allowed ANY excuse such as “I fear”. The Triade of our system, Police, Courts and Lawyers are totally biased by money and their own thus can not equally judge.

They want to forgo accountability, place blame on anything but themselves. When in any other case (no money or power) you go straight to jail even if you are in fact innocent. How many people have spent decades in prison or were executed while being innocent by a broken system?

Have Money of Power (Part of Government)?
The truth is, they already know they’re guilty. Yet they’ll most likely never spend a day in jail. They’ll keep their benefits, right to get hired again. Homes, life and freedom. Things none of us get when we commit the same crimes or abuses. There is in deed two classes in America. Those who MUST OBEY and those who do not. Laws and justice should be about equality and all however because money and lawyers make create our laws, they’re designed to be manipulated.

We can look at people like OJ Simpson, Bill Cosby and now Harvey Weinstein and the justice they were able to buy to make what they did go away. To minimize it, ignore it, blame is on others. Big business like banks and corporations have the same power and even when CEO’s are to blame or at fault they’re rarely accountable.

With the advent of video and audio via cell phones, undeniable evidence has exposed just how much police and government lie. Yet even with video evidence we don’t get justice. Because the triad of the courts, police and government twists the truth, manipulates the facts, jury and outcome. In the end even the judges don’t give the same sentences as they should to the rest of us. Why would a judge who relies on police to protect them hold them to the same level of accountability? They’ll always blame it on law which they’re part of the same system which created it and influenced it. A selective system, an unjust system and most of all a broken system which must be exposed for what it is. A fraud, a lie and a tool used by government and the rich. Justice should never be based on money.

Why is one man sent to prison for posting on Facebook while another because he’s a cop and kills never spends a day in jail? WHY IS CARY-ANDREW CRITTENDEN IN PRISON? Because he lacks money or power (part of government)

Now it’s all about MONEY, NOT JUSTICE and how much lawyer (Justice) you can buy. Or as in police it’s your biased relationship with the court.

“If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck”.
Listen to the victims, especially if there are several.

Why was Harvey Weinstein fired from the company he co-founded with his brother Bob?

The board of directors said it was due to mounting allegations of misconduct by the famously volatile Harvey Weinstein. But privately Harvey Weinstein suspects something else.

“Harvey Weinstein is convinced this was a takedown,”.

Specifically, Weinstein has been telling confidants that he believes Bob is behind last week’s damaging New York Times investigation and the board’s subsequent decision to fire him.

“He feels betrayed by his brother,”. But it strikes some onlookers as nothing more than an excuse by Weinstein — a convenient alternative to the prevailing view that decades of improper behavior has finally caught up to him.

Bob was one of the board members who voted to terminate Harvey Weinstein on Sunday.

Bob and the company’s chief operating officer and president David Glasser are now jointly running the imperiled studio. Harvey Weinstein has told friends that he blames both Bob and Glasser.

Related: Harvey Weinstein has been fired. So what’s next? Harvey Weintstein is “humiliated” by the stories about his alleged pattern of harassment.

Harvey Weinstein is not the only figure under scrutiny. There are a row of outstanding questions about how much the company’s board members — including his brother Bob — did or did not know about his conduct with women.

The Times story last Thursday cited “two company officials” who said Weinstein had paid at least eight settlements to women over the course of decades.

Chapman, the fashion designer who has been married to Harvey Weinstein for 10 years, announced Tuesday that she was leaving Harvey Weinstein, hours after The New Yorker published a harrowing exposé in which multiple women accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and, in three cases, of rape. Last week The New York Times published its own account of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged assaults across several decades.

Chapman said in a statement, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband Harvey Weinstein. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife, Georgina Chapman, is leaning on fellow scorned spouse Huma Abedin after announcing that she is leaving the movie mogul.

A well-placed source tells Page Six that Marchesa co-founder Chapman reached out to Abedin, the soon-to-be ex-wife of convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner, as the scandal engulfing her movie-mogul husband intensified and more women — including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow — came forward with allegations that Harvey Weinstein had sexually assaulted or harassed them.

Chapman and Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide, have known each other for some time because of Harvey Weinstein’s numerous fundraising events for the former presidential hopeful. Plus, the Clintons rented a Hamptons house next door to Harvey

Utah Police Officers Jeff Payne and James Tracy Assault, Terrorize and falsely arrested Nurse Alex Wubbels

Utah Police Officers Jeff Payne and James Tracy Assault, Terrorized and falsly arrested Nurse Alex Wubbels

Utah Police Officers Jeff Payne and James Tracy Assault, Terrorize and falsely arrested Nurse Alex Wubbels

What took place in Utah July 26, 2017 actually is more common than some people want to accept. Police lying or abusing their power to get things done even if illegal or immoral. The recent case of Cary-Andrew Crittenden is an example of what happens if there are no cameras. The courts go along with the perjured police evidence which result in the victim being incarcerated and their lives are destroyed. All while dishonest police like Detective Jeff Payne and Lietenant James Tracy end up getting paid vacations for their crimes. The system is in need of huge change and removing immunity and rights of all police officers who lie, commit crime or injure anyone.

What happened:
Salt Lake City Utah Police detective Jeff Payne arrested nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to let officers draw blood from an unconscious patient.

Alex Wubbels, a nurse at the hospital and former champion skier, is accusing Salt Lake Police detective Jeff Payne of using excessive force when he handcuffed her for refusing to draw blood from a patient who suffered severe burns following a fiery crash in northern Utah.

Officer Jeff Payne said he wanted to obtain a blood sample from the man, who was unconscious due to the crash, to see if he had illegal substances in his system when it took place.

The Gold Cross Ambulance said in a statement: ‘Although Officer Jeff Payne was not working for Gold Cross Ambulance at the time of the incident, we take Officer Jeff Payne’s inapproriate remarks regarding patient transports seriously.

‘We acknowledge those concerned individuals who have contacted us regarding the incident and affirm out commitment to serving all members of the community with kindness and respect.’

No charges were ever brought against Officer Jeff Payne following the July incident, though he’s been taken off the blood draw program.

Nurse Alex Wubbles said at a recent press conference: ‘I just feel betrayed, I feel angry. I feel a lot of things. And I am still confused. I’m a health care worker. The only job I have is to keep my patients safe. A blood draw, it just gets thrown around there like it’s some simple thing. But blood is your blood. That’s your property. And when a patient comes in in a critical state, that blood is extremely important and I don’t take it lightly.’

People are sick and tired of idiots, morons, bullies, thugs, criminals, losers, liars, con-artist, sociopaths and mentally disturbed people police departments hire. Giving such folk authority and deadly force must be stopped and hiding it behind a tin badge and uniform is how they get away with it. The public must stop believing in a broken image and start holding each officer personally liable and accountable for their actions. No more paid vacations, slaps on the wrists and immunity for lying, pejured reports, crime, abuse and terrorizing people. No more killer cops who are allowed to escape prosecution with the lame excuse “fear”.

Drew Peterson Hid behind the Badge for 30 years

drew peterson serial killer cop who hid behind a badge for over 30 years

Drew Peterson Hid behind the Badge for 30 years. Having grown up with a sister who is a sociopath I’m very familiar with their traits and skills. The ability to be charming, convincing and cunning as just a few of the abilities they possess. The problem is when victims report their crimes and abuse Police often fail to act, fail to believe that someone in their role could commit crime, abuse or even murder. Thus scum of the earth people such as Drew Peterson find their way up the chain of authority. What’s worse is many sociopaths get into even higher authority roles. It’s just too easy to hide behind an image.

Police sergeant Drew Peterson was convicted in the 2004 murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He was also named a suspect in 2007 in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

Convicted killer Drew Peterson was born on January 5, 1954. After high school, he married and went into the U.S. Army. Drew Peterson went through several more marriages after joining the Bolingbrook Police Department in Illinois in 1977. He became a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, and was later convicted in the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Drew Peterson served in the U.S. Army from 1972 to 1976, spending most of his time as a military police officer. While in the army, Drew Peterson married his high school sweetheart Carol. The couple had two sons together. He joined the Bolingbrook Police Department in 1977. Three years later, Carol and Drew Peterson divorced, amicably by all accounts.

Drew Peterson’s marriage to Connolly fell apart in 1992 over his infidelities. He was having an affair with Kathleen Savio, and he and Connolly divorced that year. Not long after the divorce, Savio and Drew Peterson married and eventually had two sons together, Thomas and Kristopher.

The union did not remain happy for long, however. Savio got an order of protection from Drew Peterson in 2002, claiming that he had physically abused her. The couple divorced in 2003, without finalizing their financial arrangements. That October, Drew Peterson married for the fourth time. He wed Stacy Cales, who was 30 years younger than him. Drew Peterson and Cales had been having an affair during his marriage to Savio.

Drew Peterson and Savio were set to resolve their outstanding issues regarding their divorce in April 2004. But Savio never made it to the hearing. She was found dead in her bathtub on March 1, 2004. Her hair was damp, but the bathtub was dry. At the time, Savio’s death was ruled an accidental drowning. Many of her family members, however, believed that Savio had been murdered. The full story 

My point here is just how easy it is for sociopaths, bullies, losers, thugs and generally problematic people to get hired in roles of authority. Then how almost impossible it can be to expose them and get police of government to hold them liable or invesitgate them. In my case my sister was quick to perjure a document to be assigned conservator of our mother. Via lies, fraud, abuse and even crime, yet several judges ignored petitions and letters exposing her. Yet the nightmare continues and the abuse gets worse as well as the grand theft and embezzelment of our mothers estate.

I’m here to tell you there are more Drew Peterson’s many more but it’s rare they get removed.
Police, Lawyers and Civil Servants are among the highest positions and most infected. Guess who we rely on to prosecute them?
Guess why the people who should change the probelm don’t many are in fact sociopaths.

How Conspiracy Helps the Thin Blue Line Get Away with Murder

One thing ALL THE FAMILIES of victims find out the hard way is how they never get justice. How there are two classes of people in court, those above the law and those forced to obey. They lose their loved one more than once, the first time when they’re murdered, the second time when they destroy the victims character, the third time when they let the killer go free.

What America must see and be exposed to is how dirty the judges, prosecutors, district attorneys and mayor is as they help dangerous killers go free. They all know deep inside what they’re doing is wrong, a lie and a scam but they’re all in bed with each other. This must stop and they all must be held personally liable as accessories to murder.

To win his election campaign and oust the top state prosecutor in Omaha, Nebraska, Don Kleine first needed to secure the support of an influential group of voters.

Promising a return to “tough on crime” priorities, and attacking the incumbent county attorney’s new rehabilitative programs, Kleine clinched the endorsements of the region’s major police unions – and their thousands of dollars in election campaign contributions.

Ever since his 2006 victory, Kleine has relied on the officers of those unions to help him convict everyday criminals. Omaha officer Alvin Lugod, for instance, was called to appear as a prosecution witness a dozen times, according to records released by Kleine’s office.

The Guardian has been counting the people killed by US law enforcement agencies since 2015. Read their stories and contribute to our ongoing, crowdsourced project

Yet when Officer Lugod was facing possible criminal charges himself in February for fatally shooting an unarmed man in the back, Kleine saw no reason to step aside. Instead, the prosecutor oversaw a secret grand jury process that declined to indict his colleague.

The case was one of 217 this year where a police officer who killed someone was cleared of wrongdoing in a process led by a prosecutor who typically works alongside the officer’s department. The total represented 85% of all killings by police that were ruled justified in 2015, according to a Guardian analysis. This week, the police officer who killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice last year in Cleveland, Ohio, was cleared in the same way.

Criminologists, civil liberties activists and lawmakers said the arrangements created serious conflicts of interest at the heart of the criminal justice system’s response to killings by police.

“Prosecutors work with police day in, day out, and typically they’re reluctant to criticise them or investigate them,” said Prof Samuel Walker of the University of Nebraska. Describing Lugod’s case as a cause for concern, Walker said: “A major change in our standard legal practice, and the structure of our criminal justice system, is required.”

In about one in three cases that were ruled justified, including Lugod’s, the criminal inquiry work was done by the officer’s own police department, meaning the evidence used to decide if an officer should be prosecuted was prepared by the officer’s co-workers. Only 12.5% of killings by police that were ruled justified in 2015 were handled completely independently.

Calls for reform have been intensified by unrest across the US following a series of controversial deaths over the past 16 months. Barack Obama’s White House policing taskforce recommended in May that regional authorities should allow independent or special prosecutors to handle killings by their police officers if they want “mutual trust between community and law enforcement”.

Kleine, the prosecutor in Omaha, oversaw the clearing of officers involved in four deaths in 2015 – more than any other district attorney in the US. Their cases only made it to Kleine’s desk because he successfully campaigned to scrap a decade-old state law that had barred him from taking charge when an officer in his own county killed someone, to avoid bias.

Legislators in more than a dozen states are now attempting to wrest responsibility for investigating deadly police incidents from local DAs and hand it to state-level or other special prosecutors. They argue that urgent action is needed to bring impartiality to the judicial system when officers of the state end someone’s life.

Police Lie and Manipulate the Truth when they do Wrong

On June 7, 2017, a St. Louis Police SWAT team raided a home on South Kingshighway. Within minutes the house was riddled with bullets and a 21-year-old young man was dead.

The police immediately described a “firefight” inside the home. They described Isaiah Hammett as “lying in wait” to ambush them, tipped off by his external home surveillance camera.

On the news the police displayed an AK-47 and alleged Isaiah Hammett fired it at them. They cited possession of guns and drugs as “probable cause” to justify their aggressive SWAT raid.

But what does the evidence tell us about the raid?

According to the family, Isaiah’s surveillance camera hasn’t functioned for years, so he was not forewarned. There was no evidence of a flash grenade the police claim they used. Family and friends also report the AK-47 was not functional.

Most alarming, an independent forensic analyst, brought in by the family for a preliminary study, supports the family’s account that no evidence indicates any bullets were fired in the direction of police. All the bullet holes point only to incoming fire.

Isaiah Hammett was the caregiver for his disabled grandfather Dennis Torres, a Vietnam vet. They shared the house.

In public statements, Isaiah’s grandfather has recalled how he was awakened by gunfire. Isaiah Hammett entered his room, retreating from his own, to pull his grandfather to safety on the floor. When he asked who was attacking, Isaiah responded, “I don’t know. I love you.”

The grandfather has further stated Isaiah Hammett entered and left his room unarmed. As Isaiah entered the dining room he was heard saying, “Please don’t shoot me.” That is where he was killed.

His grandfather observed several officers standing over Isaiah Hammett  and then he heard two more shots. Bullet holes in the floor attest to the downward angle.

How many deaths will it take ’til we know….?

There are enough unanswered questions and conflicting statements by police to demand a fair and independent investigation of this shooting.

Police Lie and Manipulate the Truth when they do Wrong. This is fact and happens all the time. It’s another reason police all over America have lost respect and trust by the people. Time after time it’s been proven that police have trouble accepting that they can be wrong. There are many cases for victims being sent to prison when later DNA sets them free, Where police are informed of other suspects yet they ignore the fact and pursue innocent people pinning crimes on them. The resent exposure of police planting evidence has been going on for decades. Its only now with video police no longer can lie and are given the benefit of doubt. We have to stop trusting an image and take note to the fact that not all police are honest and law abiding.

In the case of the murder of Isaiah Hammett Vinny non of the evidence matched with police reports. Because after executing an innocent 21 year old police realized they’d made a mistake and had to create the event to support their use of deadly force. Had there really been video cameras as Police stated then where is the footage? Victims of police murders all over America find out the hard way how police attempt to destroy the characater of their victims by spreading false or misleading negative information to media. However that’s not done when police commit crimes, their protected and that info while important is kept from the public.

What Americans need to understand when you kill someone and you’re looking at murder charges “YOU LIE” and police are no different. They understand they’ll lose everything so better the victim take the fall than their own. What makes matters worse is judges and prosecutors who we rely on for  justice are in bed with police so often they’re not objective nor willing to help prosecute.

Have you ever tried to tell a cop he’s wrong, many of them have huge egos and attitude issues from thinking their in control and in charge. We hire some of the worst people with huge mental and control issues give them authority and deadly force. You can’t argue with someone like this and to make matters worst they don’t always hire the smartest or most educated.

So who does the public believe? The police make statements about how bad the victim was, there were guns (even if legal and not used for crime, drugs were found (small amount for personal use pot) , state he was a very bad dangerous person (yet there is no proof of that). This is commong and called character assasination and Police do it all the time. When the crime finally goes to court and non-biased investigators get involved we find the real truth.  Yet that damage is already done. People just don’t want to accept Police can lie, murder and do wrong.

St. Louis Police: Man Killed After Opening Fire on Officers

St. Louis, MO — On Wednesday, St. Louis Police Swat team members executed what appeared to be a no-knock raid on a home, killing 21-year-old Isaiah Hammett. According to the Riverfront Times, Hammett was suspected of dealing in drugs and weapons, but his family is telling a very different version of events from what the St. Louis Police Department is sharing.

“A bunch of shots was going on. My grandson was trying to protect me, threw me on the floor,” his grandfather told reporters. “Then I hear screaming. He went in the dining room. I see my grandson laying dead on the dining room floor. And police SWAT team out front told me to come out. I come out. I didn’t know what was going on,” he said still in an apparent state of shock and disbelief.

Police say they had a search warrant to enter the home, but the grandfather made no mention of seeing a warrant or hearing police announce their presence. Nonetheless, the SWAT team penetrated the home. They’re now saying Hammett opened fire on them, according to Lt. Colonel Lawrence O’Toole, acting St. Louis Police Chief.

O’Toole told reporters, “I can describe it only as being a firefight that was inside the residence…Numerous rounds were fired.”

Gina Torres, Hammett’s mother said the young man and his grandfather believed someone was breaking into the home, and tried to hide. “The cops came in and they killed my son,” Torres said matter of factly.

“I needed my son and I feel like dying right now,” she cried in the street as she conveyed her heartache. “For no reason. They shot my son to death,” Torres said, tears streaming down her face.

O’Toole said his SWAT officers did a “Fantastic” job executing the search warrant and that Hammett shot at them first with an AK-47 they recovered at the scene. The semi-automatic rifle is sold in gun stores throughout the U.S. and is not illegal to possess by most citizens. O’Toole proudly displayed the rifle, which is commonly used for self-protection against such home invasions.

365 days and holding the janet phelan story exposing corruption and lies

Janet Phelan Reporter at large EXPOSING corruption, abuse and crime within our government

365 Days and Holding….

It was a year ago today that I filed a request for precautionary measures with the Inter American Commission on Human Rights. The request asked for certain measures to be enacted for my safety and security—including that a guard be provided at my home for the periods of time I have to leave, in order to deter the repeated and illegal entries into my home.

Precautionary measures are considered to be emergency measures and the IACHR is mandated to deal with them as such. SEE THIS STORY

I’ve been waiting for a year for my request to be dealt with. In that year, my home has been entered dozens of times. Documents have been stolen, computers have been smashed and at one point, a jug of grape juice was poisoned. I collapsed, but thankfully did not die.

As many of you know, I am a journalist by profession. You may not know that I was forced to flee the US in 2008 and that upon publication of my book, EXILE, which details the circumstances that forced me to flee my own country, my situation in my host country became fragile. When I filed my request with the IACHR, I named the host country as the perpetrator, acting upon orders of the United States government. Globalization at its worst…..

But the IACHR is now appearing to be afflicted with the same moral disorder that has compelled a Latin American county to take up the banner of the US’s vendetta. The venerable Commission appears to be acting as agents of the country whose murderous policies, directed against the elderly and minorities, were discussed in detail in my expose.

Ever so politely, the IACHR is simply failing to process my request.

My request for precautionary measures, enumerated as 16-559, is listed as “under study,” which is the initial stage for any entry into the IACHR system. Human rights law firms and journalists have contacted the IACHR to ask why no action is being taken on my issue. They have received no response. In the meantime, a review of the IACHR website reveals that they are now granting requests for precautionary measures filed in 2017. Mine was filed in July of 2016. It has clearly been shuffled to the bottom of the stack, if not put into the garbage can.

In her article concerning my plight, published last October, Katherine Hine wrote: “For years, Phelan’s journalism has dealt with issues of public corruption in the United States. In 2011 she traveled to Geneva on behalf of the organization ITHACA to be the first and only reporter to expose the enactment of Section 817 of the USA Patriot Act in which the US. gives itself immunity for violations of its own bioweapons legislation…….She is also the first reporter to publish photographs documenting what appears to be a domestic delivery system for a bio/chem attack within the United States. She was one of the first reporters to publicize the ongoing abuses being committed by US. probate courts that authorize the plundering of the assets of the elderly and disabled whose lives are then cut short through court authorized drugging and isolation, a multi-billion dollar scandal now recognized even by corporate media.”  SEE THIS STORY

I would like to add to that list that I have now uncovered a scam by which state court judges are in great number laundering bribes and pay-offs, through their home mortgages.

Scandal on the Bench

It is one of my core beliefs that we are put on this earth to try to make it a better place, a place where life and art and love and beauty and faith can flourish. I am facing challenges now in simply staying alive and it is with some reluctance that I find I must now try to bring more attention to myself. I frankly abhor doing so. But given the challenges that are now facing my continued existence, I am asking those reading this to be please be aware that yet another journalist is under significant attack and those who have pledged to protect human rights in the Americas won’t do a damn thing about it.
