Imagine a bunch of government insiders giving friends and family 6 figure salaries handed out like candy. Nationwide, the Judicial Branch should be audited and there needs to be Civilian Oversight to cut out the waste and fraud.
The financial scandals on Wall Street are one big hit to America and the economy, what is going on with our nation's policing, court system, and judicial branch might be an even bigger drain. It has been reported in various news venues that judges have been taking kickbacks to put citizens in prison, guilty or innocent. There is profit in breaking up families and in officially kidnapping children. There are job promotions and financial incentives to abuse the public as much as is possible. Up to a half million or so can be brought into a state in federal taxpayer funds for just one "special needs" child detained or adopted out by the state. Breaking up families is profitable for a state. Taking a citizen out of the role of taxpayer to arrest, process, put out restraining orders, make to take court ordered classes, and confining as many citizens to mental institutions and prison as is possible is big Mafia and government business.
Well, you don't have to imagine if you know anything about Connecticut, a State that show the rest of the country what the maximum police, department of children and families (DCF), the police, the judicial branch, legislators, and even lawyers can get away with. A common story [told here].
In the State of Connecticut, the State Police have been caught billing for overtime not worked, committing fraud, theft, and other crimes, and they need not even pay back the money they stole from taxpayers. Homeland Security funds can't be accounted for. This [video] shows the ridiculousness of the spending and the abuse of our citizenry.
Look at [this webpage] this judicial branch has over doubled its workers at a time where the tax base and population has diminished. Pay special attention to the position, "Deputy Director", and "Program Manager".
Should working in the court system or American law enforcement be a license to steal?
