Stop Abuse of Power Criminals and Predators hide behind Images Silence is Complicity
Many people who’ve gone to court looking for justice were shocked when they found out courts don’t care about justice or even evidence. There are many scams and dirty tactics judges and lawyers use and abuse in our courts. One of them is to simply ignore the facts, evidence or witness statements. They just rule in favor of the party who lines their pockets which sometimes is done in the form of county payments such as done by Los Angeles County or bank loans.
With the Harvey Weinstein exposure America has gotten a glimse into the world of predators and the abuse of power. Power comes in many forms, it comes with government jobs such as police, judges and politics. It’s not just about big money, it’s about immunity and being able to influence law enforcement. People with big money can buy big lawyers which can use their connections to influence judges.
We must all look at the 14th Amendment
All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The Game has been exposed, people with money or power abuse our legal system by bribing judges to ignore the facts or evidence. This silence is complicity and they then become accessories to the crimes. Anyone who take part should be held equally and personally liable.
43 California judges were reprimanded for misconduct last year
Two judges had sex with women in their chambers, one with his former law students, the other with his court clerk. A traffic court judge delegated his job to his clerk. While the judge was in chambers, the clerk heard pleas and imposed sentences.
A family law court judge excoriated two parents who appeared before him as “rotten” and the mother a “train wreck” and a “liar.”
The judges, among 43 disciplined last year by California’s Commission on Judicial Performance, received rebukes ranging from public censure or admonishment to a confidential “advisory” letter. The state watchdog agency documented the transgressions in an annual report that provides a behind-the-scenes look at errant behavior on the bench and how it is addressed.
Sexual transgressions are likely to be viewed with gravity, as are repeated remarks from the bench that belittle and humiliate lawyers and litigants, the new report suggested. The vast majority of complaints against judges result in no discipline, and most misconduct is resolved by sending judges private letters.
“Engaging in sexual intercourse in the courthouse is the height of irresponsible and improper behavior by a judge.” Commission on Judicial Performance
UC Berkeley law professor Christopher Kutz said a judge’s conduct must be extreme before the system metes out discipline. The state has about 1,800 judges, and generally fewer than 50 each year receive some form of reprimand.
“Certainly,” Kutz said, judges disparage lawyers and litigants “much more often than the number of disciplinary cases would suggest. There is a lot of latitude for judicial misbehavior.”
Judicial misconduct may be under reported because few people know there is even a mechanism for filing complaints, said Victoria B. Henley, director and chief counsel for the watchdog agency. FULL STORY HERE
Is the California Commission on Judicial Performance just a front to pretend something is being done?
Most people who file complaints are ignored when they get the standard return letter “We investigated ourselves and found nothing wrong”.

Corrupt justice: what happens when judges’ bias taints a case?
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.

Report slams the quiet way California judges are disciplined
California’s judicial disciplinary agency is too lenient and too secretive, an advocacy group charged Monday in a report submitted to the Legislature.
The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960 as the first agency in any state with the power to investigate judges for ethical violations, dismisses nearly 90 percent of the public complaints it receives and imposes discipline much less often than similar agencies in Arizona, Texas and New York, the report said. It was issued by Court Reform LLC, a nonprofit headed by Joseph Sweeney, an East Bay mathematician who said he was partly motivated by his encounters with family law courts. FULL STORY HERE
