Janet Phelan on the crisis in judicial integrity

What’s really going on in America


Janet Phelan is an example of a good, honest, law abiding citizen who was victimized by an obviously corrupt Justice system where judges and lawyers are all about greed and profit.

In the video Janet hits the nail on the head what’s going on in America today. The corruption is so bad people are leaving in numbers, victims are made out to be the villains and end up homeless by a system based on “How much Justice you can afford.

The fact is all divisions of our court system today have an epidemic of judicial corruption where the courts have become weaponized. No amount of evidence, witnesses and even audio or video means anything when the judge is being bribed.

Janet brings up a solution to prove bribery may be involved by doing a financial background on your judge. Be sure to read the articles Janet Phelan has written over the years.

Janet Phelan

Most victims of our justice system never thought they’d be victimized, the problem is we trust an image, badges, uniforms and things like a black robe which is suppose to represent “honor”. Little do we know bad lawyers become worse judges who weaponize the court where police or outside agencies don’t go. Imagine that, you figure out the court is totally corrupt and government does nothing, you even find out chances are they’re involved as well.

In my case I had a sibling who I always knew was cold and different but found out she’s a psychopath. I found this out in the process of growing up with her and her specific psychopath behaviors. Sadly my entire family was destroyed by this beast, liar, con-artist and criminal. Yet all involved from Los Angeles Superior Court Probate department ignored the fact she embezzled over $200k in bank accounts prior to filing a totally fraudulent petition forcing our mother into a fraudulent conservatorship. Yes, it’s that easy, lie thru your teeth, even your lawyer can perjure his petition knowing he’ll be generously rewarded in huge legal fees for elder abuse, fraud, embezzlement and conspiracy. The Bar will accept your complaint but play stupid, why because whenever you have lawyers overseeing lawyers or police overseeing police they protect their own. Worse there are lawyers who shop judge dinners for backdoor deals. Our court system is infected with   dishonorable judges who can be bought via bank loans they never have to pay back.

So it comes down to the fact “Laws are only words on paper and mean nothing if ignored”. People unaware of what’s going on in American courts today think court is about evidence, witness testimony, justice, law and rights. But once victimized they find out it’s about dirty, slimy, slick lawyers who ignore law and rights because the game is not knowing law but cheating the system via back door bribery deals.

The Epidemic they don’t talk about

undeserved impunity the epidemic they don't talk about judges

Exposing the Failure of the Authority Figure

Expose the no justice system the worst abusers hide behind robes badges bar licenses and authority roles

Exposing the Failure of the Authority Figure how judges, lawyers and police hide behind a fake image to commit their abuse and crimes

Sadly the authority figure has failed us and has been abused by the worst criminals, psychopaths, liars, con-artists and frauds. It’s been proven beyond a doubt by the epidemic of church molestation and Boy Scouts of America molestation cases which have occurred. What people need to be made aware of is how these abusers and enemies of society use an authority role as cover to commit abuse, crimes, fraud, embezzlement and murder.

It’s not just the church and Boy Scout of America but judges, lawyers, police and government roles that allow these monsters to get away with their crimes and abuse. The fact that like church molesters judge when exposed are never prosecuted instead they’re move from one court to another. Authority figures abuse immunity and the court system to escape prosecution and accountability.

We need to stop asking judges and police who fail everyone in getting justice or proper investigations against Boy Scouts of America or the Church. These authority figures refuse to prosecute each other because many of the police and judges involved are in fact “Doing the same within their roles”.
The problem with judges and police is worse as each entity supports each other with protections. The police won’t get involved in court matters and police won’t honestly investigate and prosecute judges. This unfair, unreasonable and distorted relationship breeds criminals, abuse and even legalized murder. Lawyers and the legal industry is a joke and nothing about justice, it’s 100% about money and how much you can afford. Lawyers are above the law and not held to the same standards of law as the public. Part of the problem is letting lawyers create laws and having the bar which is made up of lawyers oversee their own.

Same goes for police who we trust to investigate their own but know from video and audio evidence they’re incapable of doing so. Public servants of all kinds MUST be ruled over and governed by the public and no one who has anything to do with lawyers or police.

What the world needs to understand is the concept of hiding behind an authority figure image is not limited to the church or boy scouts of America. Victims are often ignored when a judge ignores law, crime, abuse and the victim’s rights. The problem is WHO DO YOU REPORT THEM TO? and worse who will without bias prosecute and hold accountable judges, lawyers, police and government. At the moment NO ONE so the concept of criminals hiding behind authority roles has been proven by what molesters from the church and boy scout leader have been getting away with for decades.

Ask the victims not the organization that has everything to lose that protects their own criminals and molesters. The system is broken and the government and organizations that should be protecting the innocent is part of the problem.

We need to stop believing the lies by the criminals involved which are constantly repeated until the public is brainwashed to think it’s the truth. While the victims have their characters destroyed by the criminals who are paid to play the game. Justice in our courts does nothing for the victims who come forward with evidence, fact and documentation of the abuse and crimes but are ignored.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA PROVES BEYOND DOUBT HOW AUTHORITY IMAGES ARE ABUSED BY CRIMINALS AND ABUSERS

Fifty-eight years ago, Edward Pittson says, the Scoutmaster who had taught him skills like how to use a compass and light a campfire said he was going to teach Pittson about sex. The Scoutmaster invited Pittson, who was 12, to his house and asked him to lie on the bed. The man assured the boy he had seen other Boy Scouts naked. “This is the normal way to learn about sex,” Pittson recalls the Scoutmaster telling him. “He said, ‘But don’t tell your parents what I’m doing. They wouldn’t think you’re mature enough. They wouldn’t understand.’” The man told him a “dirty story,” pulled down his pants and masturbated him. Pittson can’t remember if this happened one time, or if the Scoutmaster invited him over again a few weeks later, but he does remember pulling up his pants after a few minutes and walking out of the room. “He called after me, calling me a baby and trying to make me feel guilty,” Pittson recalls. “I just wanted to go home.”

About four years later, Pittson, around 16 and furious that the man remained a Scoutmaster, told his parents what had happened. He says his parents went to the bishop at their local church in Northern California, the same church that sponsored the Boy Scout troop, and the Scoutmaster was quietly removed from his position. Pittson says he also spoke to the bishop, but as far as he knows, nobody reported the Scoutmaster to the police. Now, Pittson is one of hundreds of men and boys hoping for a last chance at restitution if the Boy Scouts of America, in the face of a new wave of abuse allegations, files for bankruptcy.

From Australian country towns to schools in Ireland and cities across the US, the Catholic Church has faced an avalanche of child sexual abuse accusations in the last few decades.

High-profile cases and harrowing testimony given to public inquiries have continued to keep the issue in the headlines.

In the most recent of these, Cardinal George Pell was convicted of abusing two choir boys in Melbourne in 1996. He is Australia’s highest-ranking Catholic, and was previously Vatican treasurer – meaning he was widely seen as the Church’s third most powerful official.

And Theodore McCarrick, a former cardinal in the US, was defrocked over abuse claims just 10 days earlier – making him the most senior Catholic figure to be dismissed from the priesthood in modern times.

Meanwhile alleged cover-ups continue to dog the Church, and victims groups say the Vatican has not done nearly enough to right its wrongs. In an effort to address the problem, Pope Francis recently held an unprecedented summit on paedophilia in the Church.

Here’s what you need to know.

How did this all come to light?

Although some accusations date back to the 1950s, molestation by priests was first given significant media attention in the 1980s, in the US and Canada.

In the 1990s the issue began to grow, with stories emerging in Argentina, Australia and elsewhere. In 1995, the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, stepped down amid sexual abuse allegations, rocking the Church there.

Also in that decade, revelations began of widespread historical abuse in Ireland. By the early 2000s, Church sexual abuse was a major global story.

In the US, determined reporting by the Boston Globe newspaper (as captured in the 2015 film Spotlight) exposed widespread abuse and how pedophile priests were moved around by Church leaders instead of being held accountable. It prompted people to come forward across the US and around the world.

A Church-commissioned report in 2004 said more than 4,000 US Roman Catholic priests had faced sexual abuse allegations in the last 50 years, in cases involving more than 10,000 children – mostly boys.

A 2009 report found that sexual and psychological abuse was “endemic” in Catholic-run industrial schools and orphanages in Ireland for most of the 20th Century.

A five-year Australian inquiry in 2017 found that “tens of thousands of children” were sexually abused in Australian institutions over decades, including churches, schools and sports clubs.

Think all judges and lawyers are honorable and law abiding?

An Arkansas judge who styled himself as a “Sugar Daddy” and was accused by local women of soliciting sex in exchange for cash, drugs and bail leniency largely escaped accountability from authorities for years, a Reuters investigation found.

On his final day in office, the judge was forced to resign from the bench in disgrace. But more than three years later, state officials have yet to decide whether he should be allowed to keep his law license. To date, he continues to practice law despite his misconduct on the bench.

The story of District Court Judge Tim Parker shows how hard it can be to remove an American judge suspected of corruption. It also illustrates how, even after misconduct on the bench becomes an open secret, a judge can remain in power for years when his victims are people who typically make for poor witnesses – in this case, petty criminals and drug addicts.

The Reuters investigation, Part 3 of the news agency’s series “The Teflon Robe,” is based on hundreds of pages of confidential sworn testimony, as well as interviews with the judge’s accusers and eight law enforcement officials in Arkansas.

Parker was investigated by the city police, the sheriff’s office, the state police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a federal grand jury over four years, but no charges were brought. Witnesses gave evidence that the judge disclosed the identity of a confidential informant; traded money and opioids for sex; and gave favorable treatment to young women in his courtroom, Reuters found.

As part of its “Teflon Robe” project, Reuters identified and reviewed 1,509 cases from the last dozen years – 2008 through 2019 – in which judges resigned, retired or were publicly disciplined following accusations of misconduct. In addition, the news agency’s investigation identified 3,613 cases from 2008 through 2018 in which states disciplined judges privately – withholding from the public details of their offenses, including the identities of the judges themselves.

Here are four key takeaways from Part 3 of the Reuters investigation, the first comprehensive accounting of judicial misconduct nationally:

* In many states, the lack of aggressive public oversight means that judges may behave with impunity. But a well-staffed and persistent state judicial oversight agency – the exception, not the rule, in the United States – can hold judges to account when other authorities can’t.

* In the unlikely case that judges are publicly charged with misconduct, many states enable judges to simply resign or retire, putting a stop to the charges and any investigation of potential wrongdoing. Reuters found that at least 341 judges across the United States escaped punishment or further investigation in the past dozen years by resigning or retiring amid misconduct allegations.

* By analyzing actions by state oversight commissions over more than a decade, Reuters found that states that deploy fewer resources tend to discipline fewer judges. Nationally, oversight agencies have on average one full-time employee for every 155 judges. Arkansas, which conducts relatively aggressive monitoring, has roughly one staffer for every 53 state judges.

* At least 5,206 people were directly affected by a judge’s misconduct, Reuters found. The victims ranged from people who were illegally jailed to those subjected to racist, sexist and other abusive comments from judges in ways that tainted the cases.

This secret system of resolving cases involving miscreant judges has parallels to how misbehavior by police is handled. “The public has been alerted as it never has been before to the way police misconduct is concealed,” said Stephen Gillers, a law professor at New York University. “The same is true for judges.”

How Corrupt Is America’s Judicial System?

Law Only Applies to the Public, Police, Judges and Government can Murder, Assault, Perjure and Steal

Law Only Applied to the Public Police, Judges and Government can Murder, Assault, Perjure and Steal


Law Only Applies to the Public, Police, Judges and Government can Murder, Assault, Perjure and Steal

100% Evidence of this can be found daily and everywhere, the internet, news media and on your streets. America is about two classes, those “forced to obey” and those who are “Above the law”. Sadly we’ve allowed the same people who benefit from the crime and rewards of being above the law to write the laws and influence the law. Even when clear video proves beyond a doubt that they killed, assaulted, perjured and committed crimes they’ve created loop holes, court games to get around punishment and accountability. Most people don’t understand how bad it’s become because they’ve not been personally affected yet.

In fact when you or I commit these same crimes were sent directly to jail with huge bail amounts and it’s up to us to prove our innocence. However when Police, Judges or government does the same they get paid vacations, paid legal counsel, tax payer paid benefits, union support and go unpunished and unaccountable. That’s the reward when you become a “Public Servant” which is all about “self serving” and definitely not about “Serving the Public. Those are just words they use to get you to go along with paying taxes.

In any other business these con-artists, liars, frauds, cheats and criminals would be fired and jailed. Yet in government we protect dishonesty, crime, abuse, perjury and even murder.

2014 Officer of the Year placed on ‘restricted’ duty is a FRAUD and it’s all about fake images and lies to promote the wrong people

Meet Dekald County Georgia Police Officer P. J. Larscheid a poster child for “Government gone wrong”. In fact millions of people will lose faith in government, judges and police by this one problem person’s crimes. Plus he’ll get away without being prosecuted or getting a public record. Millions of victims each year find out the hard way that our courts are about MONEY not justice with the majority of judges on the take in the form of home loan and property loan payments. Our country is controlled by the corporations not the people. By a congress that is about greed and profit for themselves not the people.

Back to Dekald County Georgia Police Officer P. J. Larscheid who needed to make a personal statement to defend his manhood by beating an obviously ill, totally defenseless woman who was homeless. How dare she ignore or not respond to the sick, perverted mind of an obviously mentally ill and insecure Georgia Police Officer P. J. Larscheid who then took it upon himself to assault Katie McCrary. Note the first thing his department does is to publicly share her arrest records to destroy her credibility yet I bet they do everything to hide any other problems Officer P. J. Larscheid had. They play dirty tactics and always attempt to destroy the character of the real victims.

It’s not a small number, it’s daily, hourly and many events never make it to mainstream media

Beware Killers Hide Behind Images and Badges

What people need to accept is images can be deceiving. Like Bill Cosby and the image American’s have grown up to know on TV. Like the image people have of police being protectors and enforcers. The true fact is we don’t know who that person is wearing that badge. Yet many refuse to convict a guily person because they don’t want to destroy the image they’ve known. Even with smoking gun video footage and reports of violations and crimes people trust an image. Can over 50 women be wrong about Bill Cosby?

The fact is more people are executed by police each year than police are killed by the public. The other problem is courts are in bed with law enforcement so they do everything they can to avoid prosecutiong their friends. What other businesses have their own investigating and prosecuting? Lawyers oversee lawyers and judges while police investigate themselves. There’s an obvious lack of objectiveness and transparency when it comes to crimes by police, judges, lawyers and government. They control our justice system which as we know is based on money not justice.

Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez executed Philando Castile during a traffic stop and was acquitted on all charges by a jury, a decision that came nearly a year after the encounter was partially streamed online to a rapt nation in the midst of a painful reckoning over shootings by law enforcement.

Officer Jeronimo Yanez pulled Castile’s car over in Falcon Heights, a suburb near Minneapolis and St. Paul, and officerJeronimo Yanez  later said he thought Castile matched the description of a suspect in a robbery. The stop quickly escalated.

Officer Jeronimo Yanez blindly fired into the car, saying later he thought Castile was going for his gun, a claim Castile’s girlfriend, sitting in the seat next to him, disputed. She began streaming the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook Live.

Police officers are seldom charged for fatal on-duty shootings and convictions are even less common. Castile’s death came at a time of intense scrutiny of fatal police-involved shootings, and the viral video of his final moments spurred heated demonstrations that continued for weeks.

“My son loved this city, and this city killed my son,” Mr. Castile’s mother, Valerie, said as she stood on a corner outside the courthouse afterward. “And a murderer gets away. Are you kidding me right now?”

She continued, “The system in this country continues to fail black people and will continue to fail us.”

The case against Officer Jeronimo Yanez — believed to be the first time in Minnesota history that an officer was charged in an on-duty fatal shooting — hinged on one central question: Did the officer Jeronimo Yanez have reason to fear that Mr. Castile was reaching for a gun that he had acknowledged having with him when he was pulled over by the officer Jeronimo Yanez ?

Officer Jeronimo Yanez testified that he feared Mr. Castile was grabbing for the gun, but Mr. Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, said he had merely been reaching for his identification to give officer Jeronimo Yanez.

How to hide behind an Image and get away with it

The fact remains that the wrong people get hired or become role models. They hide behind a postitive image or authority figure. Even when multiple victims come forward our courts and government refuse to prosecute or objectively invesigate. Think about the hundreds of victims of Judge Mark Ciavarella the “Kids fo Cash Judge” and how long it took for government to investigate and act. Even with a “smoking gun video” of killer cop Michael Slager courts refuse to hold him fully accountable. Our courts are based on money and greed not justice and integrity just look at Bill Cosby or O.J. Simpson. How much justice can you afford? How can money help the wrong people win in court even if guilty?

Bill Cosby
American comedian and actor, is currently knee-deep in sexual assault allegations. Approximately 56 women have come forward claiming that Bill Cosby raped or sexually assaulted them a few decades ago. The trial has begun, and as of now, Cosby has denied all allegations. The trial specifically regards the alleged drugging and raping of Andrea Constand in 2004, one of many accusations against Cosby.

On September 6, one of Cosby’s lawyers, Brian McMonagle, stated, “Mr. Cosby is no stranger to discrimination and racial hatred, and throughout his career Mr. Cosby has always used his voice and his celebrity to highlight the commonalities and has portrayed the differences that are not negative, no matter the race, gender and religion of a person.” McMonagle also said of lawyer Gloria Allred, who is representing many of the women who have accused Bill Cosby as of this time, [Allred] calls herself a civil rights attorney, but her campaign against Bill Cosby builds on racial bias and prejudice that can pollute the court of public opinion. He further stated, “And when the media repeats her accusations with no evidence, no trial and no jury we are moved backwards as a country and away from the America that our civil rights leaders sacrificed so much to create.” These statements were made to reporters outside the courthouse. It is not known whether the defense will use racial bias as a defense tactic during the official trial. Despite the defense’s recent argument of a racial bias against the comedian, Bill Cosby in the past has spoken openly about racism not being a legitimate reason for many disadvantages African Americans face. In a 2004 NAACP speech, Bill Cosby said, “These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake. Then we all run out and are outraged: The cops shouldn’t have shot him. What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?”

Though racial bias is truthfully seen in many trials, Bill Cosby’s trial is not one where racism can be used as a tactic in his defense. An incredible amount of women have spoken out about being victims, and even if half of the allegations were untrue, Bill Cosby would still have approximately thirty accusations against him. These are colossal numbers and it is difficult to imagine that these women are behind a racist conspiracy with the goal to tear down one of the most esteemed African-American actors of our time.

How many millions has Bill Cosby spent on lawyers, propaganda and court to suppress the truth and justice?

Judge Mark Ciavarella found Guilty but how many judges get away with it?
Juvenile court Judge Mark Ciavarella, Judge Mark Ciavarella sent more than 3,000 children to privately owned detention centers, often without legal representation or trial. Their transgressions were predominantly non-violent, but the terms they received often ranged up to years in duration.

The scandal was dubbed “Kids for Cash” when it was revealed that Judge Mark Ciavarella and former Judge Michael Conahan received $2.8 million in so-called “finders fees” from a for-profit juvenile detention center, in return for helping to fill its cells.

The story behind a corruption scandal so brazen and cruel it defies imagination. Between 2003 and 2008, two Pennsylvania judges accepted millions of dollars in kickbacks from a private juvenile detention facility in exchange for sending children — girls and boys, some as young as 11 — to jail.

Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was ordered Thursday to spend 28 years in prison for a bribery scandal that prompted the state’s high court to overturn thousands of juvenile convictions. Judge Mark Ciavarella was convicted of taking a $1 million bribe from the builder of a pair of juvenile detention centers in a case that became known as “kids for cash.” In the wake of the scandal, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned about 4,000 convictions issued by Judge Mark Ciavarella, saying Judge Mark Ciavarella violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles. Al Flora, his lawyer, called the sentence harsher than expected.

Federal prosecutors accused Judge Mark Ciavarella and a second judge, Michael Conahan, of taking more than $2 million in bribes from Robert Mericle, the builder of the PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care detention centers, and of extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from Robert Powell, the facilities’ co-owner. Judge Mark Ciavarella took the cash while filling the beds of the private lockups with children as young as 10, many of them first-time offenders. Mr. Conahan pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.

Kids for Cash Scandal – 20/20 – 2009

A Look at “Kids for Cash” and an In-Depth Conversation with Victims

Kids For Cash (2014) By: Robert May

Officer Michael Slager who shot Walter Scott in the back on video and then lied about it.
How the system is set up to help officers make up false stories and rationalize murder. Thr first video covers how officers are treated after killing someone and how the public is treated after allegitally committing a crime. The double standards, friends investigating friends and how a broken justice system run by friends and based on money helps killer cops get away with murder.

Officer Michael Slager shot Walter Scott in the back as the unarmed man was running away from Officer Michael Slager after a traffic stop. In a reversal from his previous account, Officer Michael Slager admitted in court Tuesday that he did not shoot Walter Scott in self-defense and said that his use of force was unreasonable.

Walter Scott’s death sparked renewed “Black Lives Matter” protests after the 50-year-old became the latest in a series of unarmed black men killed by police.

With Officer Michael Slager’s family and Walter Scott’s family present, Officer Michael Slager pleaded guilty Tuesday in US District Court in Charleston to a federal charge of deprivation of rights under the color of law. In exchange for the plea, state murder charges, as well as two other federal charges, will be dismissed.

The civil rights offense has a maximum penalty of life in prison. The plea agreement states that the government will ask the court to apply sentencing guidelines for second degree murder, which carries up to 25 years in prison. Officer Michael Slager was taken into custody after the hearing and will remain there until sentencing later this year.

Walter Scott’s mother said the sentence mattered little to her now that Officer Michael Slager had admitted responsibility.

“What made me feel good about it is that Officer Michael Slager admitted what he did. That was enough years for me,” she said in response to the question how much time she wanted Officer Michael Slager to serve.

“No matter how many years Officer Michael Slager gets, it would not bring back my son,” she said. “This is a victory for Walter Scott. This is justice for the family, but this is just the beginning.”

The big key now is will Officer Michael Slager be held accountable like anyone else or will his status as a peace officer held him escape full punishment?
Will he get the death penality or will the courts help a murderer get away with a crime?

Santa Clara County Criminals Hiding among Government

Santa Clara County Criminals Hiding among Government


“SANTA CLARA COUNTY CA THOSE WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT, DID NOT INSTEAD THEY KILLED HIM”

Santa Clara County California well known for being a cesspool of corruption in all areas of government. The problem is not reporting the corruption instead stopping the abuse and terrorizing of anyone who comes forward with evidence of corruption. Far too many people have been victimized when they came forward with evidence of crimes and corruption. SEE THIS STORY

The question should not be “Are Santa Clara County Criminals Hiding among Government?” Instead it should be why does federal government not get involved more to investigate criminals among government? The fact is there are mountains of evidence, reports and victims who come forward each year reporting dishonest judges, lawyers, district attorney’s, probate investigators, police officers, sheriff deputies to name a few who never get this kind of attention. How many deaths are covered up and lied about to protect government employees who abuse their power and authority?

Three Santa Clara County jail guards were found guilty Thursday of second-degree murder in the fatal beating of a mentally ill inmate nearly two years ago, winding up a closely watched case that continues to spark calls for reform.

The jury deadlocked on charges the guards assaulted another mentally ill inmate earlier that evening. They also could not reach consensus on whether one of the guards had assaulted the same inmate a month earlier.

The panel’s decision followed a two-month trial in which attorneys clashed over how 31-year-old inmate Michael Tyree died in his single cell at Main Jail South on Aug. 26, 2015. The outcome is expected to have major consequences for what is perceived as acceptable when it comes to the use of force against inmates.

The guards — Jereh Lubrin, 30, and Matthew Farris and Rafael Rodriguez, 28 — stood emotionless as the verdicts were read in Santa Clara County Superior Court. They will be sentenced to 15 years to life in prison on the second-degree murder convictions. They had been free on $1.5 million bail each and on paid leave but were handcuffed and taken into custody after the verdicts as relatives wept. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 1

“Unfortunately, we can’t bring Michael Tyree back, but we will hold these people accountable,” District Attorney Jeff Rosen said after the verdict was read. “Everyone is entitled to be treated like a human being, whether they are a banker, law enforcement officer or inmate.” FULL STORY HERE

The biggest crime comes now when they won’t be held accountable like everyone else in society. They are in fact criminals found guilty yet they will get special treatment and may even keep their benefits. This is how government protects criminals over the public and allows them to abuse and even kill innocent people.

How Easy is it to Bribe a Judge?

How Easy is it to Bribe a Judge the dirty little secret government is hiding from you


How Easy is it to Bribe a Judge and Get away with it?
It’s too easy and has been going on for decades. Remember a judge is nothing more than a lawyer who is given immunity and a black robe. The honor and integrity must be earned but far too often judges abuse their powers because as they say Absolute power corrupts”. The problem then is the broken relationship between authorities and the court who are often friends. Police doing favors for the courts and courts returning those favors has bred a biased and unjust environment.  Federal Laws On Bribery

(a) Whoever
(1) corruptly gives, offers, or promises anything of value to any person, with intent to influence or reward an officer, director, employee, agent, or attorney of a financial institution in connection with any business or transaction of such institution; or

(2) as an officer, director, employee, agent, or attorney of a financial institution, corruptly solicits or demands for the benefit of any person, or corruptly accepts or agrees to accept, anything of value from any person, intending to be influenced or rewarded in connection with any business or transaction of such institution;
shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or three times the value of the thing given, offered, promised, solicited, demanded, accepted, or agreed to be accepted, whichever is greater, or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both, but if the value of the thing given, offered, promised, solicited, demanded, accepted, or agreed to be accepted does not exceed $1,000, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

(b) Transferred

(c) This section shall not apply to bona fide salary, wages, fees, or other compensation paid, or expenses paid or reimbursed, in the usual course of business.
(d) Federal agencies with responsibility for regulating a financial institution shall jointly establish such guidelines as are appropriate to assist an officer, director, employee, agent, or attorney of a financial institution to comply with this section. Such agencies shall make such guidelines available to the public.

18 U.S. Code § 215 – Receipt of commissions or gifts for procuring loans

Judges abuse all their powers to help cover up their crimes. They abuse their immunity and hide behind the robe and courtroom walls ruling over you because they are in fact “Above the law”.

Lawyer Richard I Fine Story exposing almost ALL of Los Angeles County Judges for accepting Bribes
Los Angeles, California — Once a dapper Beverly Hills attorney known for his bow tie, Richard Fine has been held in solitary confinement at Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail for 14 months, even though he’s never been charged with a crime.
Fine, a 70-year- old taxpayer’s advocate who once worked for the Department of Justice, is being held for contempt of court.
Superior Court Judge David Yaffe found Fine in contempt after he refused to turn over financial documents and answer questions when ordered to pay an opposing party’s attorney’s fees, according to court documents.
Fine says his contempt order masks the real reason why he’s in jail. He claims he’s a political prisoner.
“I ended up here because I did the one thing no other lawyer in California is willing to do. I took on the corruption of the courts,” Fine said in a jailhouse interview with CNN.

More details on the Special Investigations Unit’s blog
For the last decade, Fine has filed appeal after appeal against Los Angeles County’s Superior Court judges. He says the judges each accept what he calls yearly “bribes” from the county worth $57,000. That’s on top of a $178,789 annual salary, paid by the state. The county calls the extra payments “supplemental benefits” — a way to attract and retain quality judges in a high-cost city.
While the practice of paying supplemental benefits is common in California, most high-cost cities elsewhere don’t hand out these kinds of benefits. Judges in Miami, Chicago and Boston receive no extra county dollars.
Judges in Los Angeles County not only have the highest state salaries in the nation, they also get tens of thousands of dollars in county benefits. These payments, Fine says, mean judges are unlikely to rule against the county when it is involved in a lawsuit.
In the last two fiscal years, Los Angeles County won all but one of the nine trials that went before a judge, according to Steven Estabrook, the county’s litigation cost manager.
“The reason I’m here is the retaliation of the judges,” Fine says. “They figured they’re going to throw me in jail and that way they feel that they can stop me.”
Fine’s decade-long crusade against the judges eventually led to his disbarment last year. Joe Carlucci was the lead prosecutor for the California State Bar. Carlucci says whenever Fine lost a case, he would appeal and argue the judges were corrupt.

ARE THE JUDGES INVOLVED?
However, at least two of the judges involved in Clark County guardianship’s may have also had their mitts in the cookie jar. A review of the mortgage histories of Family Court Presiding Judge Charles J. Hoskin, who ascended to the bench in 2009 (first having served as a temporary judge since 2002) and Judge William Voy, who has sat on the bench in Clark County since 1998, raises  questions about the possibility that they are laundering “extra benefits” through their mortgages.

A money laundering scam using home loans as the vehicle for bribery is exquisitely simple and nearly undetectable: Judge X takes out a loan and Mr. Y pays it back.

Consider this: Since ascending to the bench in 2002, Judge Charles Hoskin has taken out or re-conveyed over 2 million dollars in home loans, including an $800,000 loan in 2006 (Mort 20060124-0004304) paid back in 2016. It is of concern that the value of the property, bought by Hoskin in 2003, was declared at $540,000 at that time. One might wonder how Hoskin could have taken out a loan for considerably more than the property is worth.

Hoskin has made some effort to obscure his ownership of the property. The Clark County Assessor’s site records his ownership only as “Taxpayer” and records the property location as that of the Assessor’s office.  The document link to the sale record is also obscured and given the bogus document number of * 99999999:99999

Hoskin’s tenure as a permanent judge began in 2009 with a salary of approximately $160,000 per year. Spread equally over 15 years and excluding interest rates, that would amount to over $133,000 per year to pay off the loans, leaving Hoskin with a remainder of $27,000. That would be before taxes.

Something ain’t right here.

ARE THE FEDS INVOLVED?
Recently, the US Attorney’s office in Los Angeles was approached with evidence of  the prevalence of bought-off judges. An official with the Public Corruption Unit, Marve Williams, took the call. This is an accurate rendition of what then transpired:

Following accumulating evidence that judges are laundering bribes through their home loans, I called the US Attorney’s office in Los Angeles, asking to speak with someone in the public corruption unit.

I shortly received a call back from a Marve Williams, who identified herself as working in the citizens complaint division of that office.
I explained to her that I had amassed evidence pointing to criminal money laundering by California judges.
Ms. Williams informed me (hang onto yer hats….) that the Department of Justice has no jurisdiction over judges. “You will need to contact the Commission on Judicial Performance,” she intoned. “Judges police themselves.”
“Ma’am!!” I replied. “If judges break the law they are held to the same measure as anyone else. These may be federal crimes and your office indeed has jurisdiction!”
Marve tried to argue this point with me but was clearly losing the battle of words. She then took another tack.
“You are not allowed to report on this conversation or to quote me,” she informed me.
“Ma’am!” I yelped. “I identified myself as a journalist in the first minute of our phone call. You cannot inhibit me or instruct me from reporting what transpired here.”
“You are not permitted to report this,” she retorted.
“Bull puckey!” I replied.

And then Marve disconnected the call.
