I didn’t want to spend Super Bowl Sunday thinking about the very bad things that are happening across America, but when you’re in the judicial reform movement, you get things sent to you that most people cannot even imagine. At least, not until it happens to them or to one of their family members. I got another one this Sunday morning.

I’m sorry to ruin your day, but I’m compelled to act. I’m compelled to fight against the horrors of tyranny and oppression. Tag, now you’re it. If you’re brave enough to face reality, then read on. If not, remember, if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem! I wish that sticking your head in the sand could save you, but it won’t. So, I’ve got a couple of questions for you.

What happens when the votes are "counted" in secret on machines? Do the people have the power to control the government or do those who control the machines have that power? Do the people have the power to remove bad governors or do the machines that those governors control just keep them in office? Would the governors do things that they would not do if the people had the power to vote them out of office? Have you ever heard the saying, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely?

What happens when those in power are not accountable to the people? Do the governors do things that the citizens would not tolerate? Do they do things that governors would not do if the people had the power to hold them accountable?

What happens when the press fails to report on abusive inhumane conduct by those in positions of authority? The people are kept in the dark, and when most do not know, the people are kept from rising up and demanding accountability. When the press ignores government misconduct, the governors do things that they would not dare to do if the press covered it, instead of covering it up, because if enough people know about outrageous conduct, no gatekeeper for the establishment can keep the people from rising up and demanding change!

There are still a few courageous journalists who will bring abuses of power to the attention of the public. Following is some courageous coverage by one local news team. I hope that they don’t get fired like Steve Wilson and Jane Akre did after trying to expose the serious danger to our health from injecting dairy cows with high levels of growth hormone to boost milk production.

After you watch this, ask yourself why this is not being covered by FOX, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, and the BBC. Is this not newsworthy, or do they just want to keep people in the dark? Does the big corporate media really report and let us decide, or do they cover up abuse by our governors so that the people do not rise up and challenge their power and demand reform?

Watch these videos and see for yourself, but beware this local news coverage of POLICE HELPING A VICTIM is VERY DISTURBING and NOT FOR CHILDREN to see. I do commend these brave journalists for showing it though. They are true journalists, remnants of the free press. They deserve our greatest respect!

(Watch these two videos, then read the rest of the article to get the big picture before checking all of the other links.)  Please note that You Tube took down all copies of these videos of local news coverage of police officers brutally strip searching a victim of an attack, but others have put them back up.  Will You Tube try to cover up this police brutality again?

Notice that those in power say they followed procedure when it is abundantly clear that they did not. Anyway, when is victimizing a victim who reports a crime ever acceptable? Notice how the gatekeepers all tell the press that they did not know about this incident, yeah right? Even if they did just find out, how much do they need to see to know that the treatment that this innocent victim suffered is horribly wrong? How long do they need to "investigate" before they can make a statement or take any appropriate action?

This type of brutal inhumane treatment happens all of the time across America now. Innocent victims and suspects are treated as you saw above. It’s common to be treated and held as shown above, and I have heard of numerous reports of people being held for days in a cold cell in the nude, even without food and water, in order to get a plea bargain out of an innocent person.

You’ve got to fill those private prisons, keep fleecing the taxpayers to keep the victims, oh that’s right criminals, under control. It must be working, right? We’ve got the lowest crime rate in 30 years, right? Yeah, that’s the ticket, let’s just keep repeating that things are much better and safer now to keep the public happy. Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time, or is it don’t be a victim of a crime or a witness to a crime if you don’t want to do the time?

Like another leader in the judicial reform movement says, "There are those who believe in America’s justice system and those who have experience with it." I’d give Jon full credit for that perfect picture of our "justice" system, but he’s still a licensed member of the Bar, so they would probably come right after him for speaking out even though it was just me repeating his words.

The courageous attorneys who are representing this innocent victim will most likely be attacked by the Bar association now, too, but remember that they took a valiant stand against injustice! They should be saluted, not attacked. But, the Bar works for those in power to control attorneys, to keep us from taking action to hold government accountable.

Are you thinking well, that’s just one case where the officers just got out of control, maybe they had a bad day, their boss is just covering up for his staff, it’s expected, and those who are supposed to take action when such criminal misconduct occurs are just finding out about it, they’ll take action after they "investigate" it. If so, here’s more news about our out of control governors and their efforts to cover up beating a 14 year old boy to death because he wasn’t cooperating enough. See,

I am active in the election, judicial and media reform movements. I obtained the first injunctions getting a third party candidate into debates, and I have handled more Congressional election contests than any other attorney. I practiced (more...)
