I've talked with insiders within police and the Connecticut Judicial Branch, and I've been informed it was probably John Rowland's power pissing contest with the Judicial Branch "Boss" and with judges. They figured they could do as they pleased, and seem to have their own scams on the public going on. The Supreme Court Justice William "Taco" Sullivan hand picked his successor, also an advocate for sealing cases of the elite and rich. Secret justice is not justice. Judges aren't supposed to legislate and govern from the bench.
I recall seeing Rowland's official governor's webpage where child abuse had gone down 45% and the reaction was to take away 445% more children. John G. Rowland, former DCF head Kristine Ragaglia, and others allegedly wanted to franchise, going national, with their nightmare of "Kiddie Max", prisons for kids. John G. Rowland, and his crew, can live like rockstars getting bribed by organized crime. Organized Crime figures get state and federal tax dollar projects to line their own pockets. Organized Crime can run, supply, and build facilities such as Maximum Security prisons for kids. To my knowledge, not one family has been compensated, or have had their cases remedied after being victims of Rowland's kidnapping ring. Why should a gaggle of 6 figure annual salary, unqualified, miscreants lie and file false reports to kidnap children with immunity?
Rowland got a year in prison, a slap on the wrist, allegedly for interfering with judge scams, not crimes he committed. Rowland was complaining about financial problems before going to prison, and then purchases a mansion for about $500,000 upon his release from prison and now receives a fat governor's pension. Rowland also allegedly now draws a six figure salary in Waterbury, Connecticut, as a business liaison, or some other made up official position. Crime does pay for insiders.
Should we the people pay tax dollars for official kidnappers to live lives of luxury, pay for their mansions, and comfort as they rip us off? Why should be their slaves and live in squalor? Should judges be able to run their own rackets while denying you justice and representation for your taxation?
Rowland successor, M. Jodi Rell, was involved in an election rigging scandal. As far as I know, none of those perpetrators have been prosecuted, nor others involved in public corruption.
