Initial interest in the case management system (CMS) of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arose following the jailing and hospitalization of two senior attorneys, who had filed complaints pertaining toallegations of corruption of judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court. One of them, Richard Fine, has been confined under coerced hospitalization for over 10 months. In parallel Los Angeles Sheriff, Lee Baca,refused to allow access to California Public Records, which were the arrest and booking papers of the two attorneys. Instead, his office repeatedly referenced false and deliberately misleading data published in its online Inmate Information Center.

Previous data surveys demonstrated that about 30% of the entries in the Inmate information Center had no booking number available. It further showed that about 50%of the entries had fictitious court and/or case number listed as the legal authority for their jailing. Data surveys for common latino names such as "Jose Martinez," "Jose Rodriguez," versus common "anglo" names such as "John Smith" or "John Williams," also suggested that latino-named inmates were more likely to be jailed or imprisoned under missing or false data entries.

Here, such data were further analyzed by accessing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department CMS through two alternative portals: TheVINE system, and the Inmate Information Center, and by comparing the results of the same queries through the two systems.

The differences were striking: The Inmate Information Center found 141 hitsfor a query of "Jose Martinez," while theVINE system identified only 28 hits for the same query. Moreover,of the inmates that were found throughVINE, 7% (2 out of 28) were not traceable in the Inmate Information Center at all, although VINE listed the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department as the data source.

The comparison was repeated by querying both systems for "Jose Rodriguez", yielding 133 hits in theInmate Information Center, but only 26 inmates in VINE for the same name.

Results of such analysis provide evidence to demonstrate that upon investigation it was very likely to be found that large-scale false arrests and false jailing were prevalent in Los Angeles County, California. Such findings weredirect extension of the Rampart scandal (1998-2000). Investigation of the Rampart scandal discovered the false imprisonment ofthousands of Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons). Hardly any has been released to this date. The evidence further demonstrated that such practices were patronized by the courts.


FBI and the US Department of Justice refuse to investigate allegations and overwhelming credible evidence of widespread corruption of the Los Angeles County justice system. International observers should be therefore invited to Los Angeles County, California to further explore conditions that are alleged as a Human Rights disgrace of historic proportions. Resolution may not be found unless International Human Rights courts are approached.
