  • Assessor Wrongly Convicted of Human Trafficking Forced Into Taking Guilty Plea

    06/29/2020 8:02:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | June 29, 2020 | Rachel Alexander
    When powerful authorities want to get you, they have a good chance of getting you. The average person doesn’t have the finances to defend against the unlimited, taxpayer-funded pockets of the government. If prosecutors think they may not have a good chance of convicting you at trial, they can threaten to stack felony charges, so if you are found guilty at trial you could end up with what amounts to a life sentence. This terrifies people, not knowing for sure how the trial could turn out especially if they can’t afford a powerful legal team, so they accept a guilty...

    President Trump called-out his Democratic rival during a campaign stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma Saturday night; saying his administration has done more for the Black community in four years than Joe Biden’s half-century career. “Virtually every policy that has hurt African Americans for half a century, Joe Biden has supported or enacted. I’ve done more for the Black community in four years than Joe Biden has done in 47 years,” said the President. “Racial Justice begins with Joe Biden’s retirement from public life,” he added. Watch the President’s comments above.

  • There’s No Sadistic Path to Restorative Justice

    06/13/2020 2:01:25 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | June 13, 2020 | Kimbely Ells
    Author James Michener said, “It is one of the dismal characteristics of humanity that in any society there is an irreducible minimum of men and women who enjoy sadistic work and who would volunteer for it if the opportunity arose.” This is exactly what happened in the case of the cold-blooded, police-induced death of George Floyd. The police officer kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck appeared to enjoy the power he was exerting over his handcuffed victim and the pain he was inflicting on him. The more the crowd called out the officer’s actions, the more he persisted in them. Sadistic...

    **SNIP** The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office says since late May, more than 550 burglary and looting arrests have been made. “We intend to vigorously prosecute,” District Attorney Larry Krasner said. “Some of these burglaries, at the most extreme end, involve things like burglarizing a gun shop and trying to go out the front with enormous quantities of guns. Some of them, on the other hand, are an 18-year-old who’s never had contact with the criminal justice system before, not even an arrest, who’s going in through a broken window and coming out with a T-shirt. “So we need to look...

    I'm just currently in a debate with someone online over the alleged mistreatment of minorities by the Florida justice system who originally citied this article dating back to 2017 as evidence for such a claim "Bias on the Bench" In response I citied the rebuttal by the 12th Circuit themselves. He then citied another article that "facts checks" that response called 'Fact checking the 12th Circuit’s “final response”'. I looked at the 12th Circuit's Judical site for their response but I could not find one. I was just wondering if anyone knows if there ever was another...

    The driver of the blue Jeep that hit two women during Saturday’s protest in Visalia immediately drove to the police station to report the incident, according to Police Chief Jason Salazar. But witnesses of the incident said that the occupants in the 2015 Jeep Wrangler had taunted protesters repeatedly prior to the collision, often yelling and cursing and mocking them while driving by. The driver blared the Jeep’s horn, according to witnesses, and drove back and forth as the occupants waved a Donald Trump “Keep America Great” flag and an American flag attached to the vehicle. And after the Jeep...

    I am not anti-cop.  Far from it.  Without them, this country would be a jungle -- in good times. However -- here's a 6 year old sitting in a public school classroom, drawing a picture of a gun.  What happens?  Instant expulsion -- zero tolerance. Why has there been no zero tolerance for cops? This from an online news source:  Derek Chauvin shot one suspect, was involved in the fatal shooting of another, and received at least 17 complaints during his nearly two decades as an officer, according to police records and archived news reports. Not having zero tolerance for...

    The Federalist ^ | May 28, 2020 | Nicole Russell
    By all accounts, the death of George Floyd looks like murder by a police officer. Attempting to burn down one of the Midwest’s most beloved cities won’t ensure justice. In downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota — Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, to be specific — rioters descended upon the police station and even nearby businesses Wednesday evening, breaking windows, setting fires, and looting. The mob gathered in response to the horrifying death of George Floyd. This video shows multiple officers pinning unarmed Floyd to the ground, one with his knee on Floyd’s neck, cutting off his airway. For nearly five excruciating minutes, Floyd...

  • Former Watergate prosecutors urge judge to buck Justice Department and not dismiss Michael Flynn case

    CNN ^ | 5/12/20 | Katelyn Polantz, David Shortell
    (CNN) Sixteen former Watergate prosecutors have told a federal judge he has the authority to sentence former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn to prison despite the Justice Department's effort to toss the case. The filings add prominent voices to the backlash against Attorney General William Barr's softening of criminal prosecutions against President Donald Trump's associates. In legal memos sent to the court on Monday and obtained by CNN, the former prosecutors essentially laid out the legal footing they believe Judge Emmet Sullivan has to reject the dismissal request and sentence Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the...

    Former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on charges he lied to the FBI about his contacts with Russians. “The DOJ has lost its way. But, career people: please stay because America needs you. The country is hungry for honest, competent leadership,” Comey tweeted. McCabe said in a statement Flynn had “high level interactions with Russian officials” who he “actively tried to influence.” He also said Flynn had lied about the substance of his talks with Russian officials. “His...

    Roger Stone on Friday night said he believes he will die in jail unless he’s pardoned by President Donald Trump. Stone, a longtime friend and former adviser to Trump, was sentenced on Feb. 20 to three years and four months in prison. Stone was convicted on charges including lying to a congressional committee that was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Stone in recent weeks moved for a new trial, pointing out anti-Trump social media posts made by the jury forewoman, and tried getting the presiding judge to recuse herself after she praised the “integrity” of the jurors....

    The Illinois Supreme Court has rejected actor Jussie Smollett's request to dismiss a case in which he's accused of falsely reporting that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago home. The court on Friday also refused to remove a special prosecutor who filed the charges. Smollett, 37, pleaded not guilty last month to a six-count grand jury indictment in the case. After entering the not guilty pleas, Judge James Linn set bond at $20,000 and released the Empire actor on his own recognizance, ordering him to return to court March 18. Smollett -- who...
  • Judges Who Tilt the Scales of Justice Do Exist

    Recently, President Trump tweeted that he felt Roger Stone’s nine-year sentencing recommendation by his own justice department was too harsh. He also pardoned former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. Liberal Democrats immediately joined forces with media voices to react as though the president had just upchucked on America’s apple pie, completely ignoring the true “elephant in the room,” i.e., very real corruption that does exist in some of our nation’s courtrooms. As to Stone, the president was no doubt concerned that a liberal judge—Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee—might be politically motivated to use the justice department’s harsh sentencing recommendation in...
