A Florida judge who jailed a crying survivor of domestic abuse is being sanctioned by the state Supreme Court. Seminole County Judge Jerri Collins jailed the woman for three days last summer after brutally berating her in court, telling her, “You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety.”

Collins jailed the woman for contempt after she failed to appear to testify against her attacker, the father of the woman’s one-year-old child. The woman told police that the man choked her, threatened her with a knife and ground his thumbs into her eyes. But the woman didn’t appear in court to testify; when compelled to appear, Collins berated her at length:

ABOVE THE LAW

AMERICANS REACT WITH FURY: ‘IF HILLARY DOESN’T FOLLOW THE LAW, WHY SHOULD I?’

Anger as FBI recommends no charges for former Secretary of State

Americans React With Fury: 'If Hillary Doesn't Follow the Law, Why Should I?'

Many Americans reacted furiously to the FBI’s announcement that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges over her email scandal, with some asserting that since the former Secretary of State appears to be above the law, they would also now refuse to follow it.

“Why should we follow the law when our leaders don’t?” asked one respondent, adding, “This Clinton bullshit has sealed the deal for me. We are ruled by a corrupt cabal that is above the law.”

“If Clinton wins, I’m not paying taxes anymore or following federal laws,” wrote another, adding, “Simple as that. It’s over. They can jail or kill me, I don’t care. I’d rather live as a free American for a day, then spend a lifetime under criminals.”

“If Hillary Clinton is not indicted why should I ever follow another law? I’ve played by the rules my entire life. Every day,” wrote another enraged American.

Innumerable people on Twitter also asked why they should bother to follow the law given that it doesn’t even appear to apply to the nation’s highest elected representatives.

Forcing the Innocent to Plead Guilty, an American Disgrace

 record 149 people had their criminal convictions overturned in 2015 after courts found they had been wrongly charged, according to a recent study. Nearly 4 in 10 of those exonerated had been convicted of murder, and the average newly-released prisoner had served more than 14 years in prison. Most of the exonerations came in only two states, Texas and New York. The National Registry of Exonerations, a project of the University of Michigan Law School, found that there have been 1,733 exonerations since 1989, with the total doubling since 2011. More than two-thirds of last year’s exonerees were minorities. Five had been sentenced to death.

There is a reason why most of the exonerations have come from two locales. District attorneys in Brooklyn, New York, and Harris County, Texas, have begun long-term reviews of questionable convictions, actions that are being watched by prosecutors and defense attorneys across the country. With 156 death row exonerations since 1973, according to the Death Penalty Information Center, this is a problem that must be addressed.

The National Registry of Exonerations report stated further that 42 of those exonerated in 2015 had pleaded guilty, a glaring indication that the current system of seeking plea bargains simply isn’t just. Indeed, Propublica found that 98.2 percent of all federal cases end in conviction, with nearly all of those a result of plea deals.

Why would an innocent person take a plea? Really, there is no alternative. First, the government uses a technique called “charge stacking.” Have you committed an actual crime? Be prepared for multiple charges, including a lot of “throwaway charges,” like obstruction of justice or making a false statement. In addition, the government will likely levy multiple charges against you for the same crime.

The point is not necessarily to convict you on everything, although prosecutors are perfectly happy to do that. The point is that prosecutors will eventually offer you a deal. Take a plea to one count and the others will be dismissed. It’s a negotiating ploy. But for the accused, the question is this: Even if you are innocent, should you take a plea and do a couple of years in prison or should you try your luck at trial, knowing that almost no defendant wins in court? Almost everybody takes the deal.

After I blew the whistle on the CIA’s torture program, the Justice Department charged me with violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act. I had confirmed the name of a former CIA colleague to a reporter who wanted to interview him for a book. The name was never made public, but I shouldn’t have done it. Still, I had no criminal intent and there was no harm to the national security.

But that didn’t matter. The government added three espionage charges, as well as a charge of making a false statement. They threatened additional charges of making a false statement and obstruction of justice. Of course, I hadn’t committed espionage. Nor had I made any false statements. But that didn’t matter. Why risk a trial when you can just force a defendant to take a plea?

In the end, I took a plea to the initial charge. Everything else was dismissed. I was sentenced to 30 months in a federal prison. If I had gone to trial and had been found guilty, I was looking at 45 years. Realistically, I would have been sentenced to 18-24 years. Either way, I would have likely died in prison.

That happens every day in America. So it should be no surprise that innocent people are in prison as a result of pleading guilty to crimes they didn’t commit. The work of the Brooklyn and Harris County district attorneys should be lauded. But innocent men and women shouldn’t have to rely on the isolated prosecutor with a conscience for justice. Justice should mean justice.

Dakota County Discredited Again!

April 13, 2016 | UPDATED: 4 days ago

A former defense attorney jailed for weeks on the subsequently dropped charge that he set his girlfriend on fire — resulting in international news coverage, including a Taiwanese cartoon casting him as a maniac — has filed a federal lawsuit against the law enforcement agencies involved.

The suit, filed in federal court in St. Paul last week on behalf of David J. Gherity, 62, and his then-girlfriend Joan Isabella, accuses Burnsville police and Dakota County Attorney’s Office of violating Gherity’s constitutional rights.

It also names two investigators who worked for the department during the 2014 case, along with chief Eric Gieseke and the Hennepin County Medical Center, where Isabella received treatment after the fire.

The suit alleges unlawful arrest and confinement and violation of the “protected liberty interest in his (Gherity’s) good name.” It further alleges the agencies hid evidence, manipulated witness statements and kept Gherity in jail knowing he was innocent.

Joseph E. Flynn, an attorney representing the city of Burnsville, responded, “We find the claims to be completely unfounded, and we will be addressing the specific claims with the actual facts in court.”

Flynn added that Gherity’s arrest was based on “compelling statements of the victim, forensic evaluation and interviews of numerous witnesses. The investigation was thorough, complete and timely, and we had probable cause to proceed with the arrest.”

The Dakota County attorney’s office declined comment.

In February 2014, firefighters were called to the Burnsville condominium where Gherity and Isabella lived, and found Isabella sitting at a table with burns on her head and face, neck and legs.

Gherity, 62, was charged in April 2014 in Dakota County District Court with first-degree assault and two counts of first-degree arson. He was arrested and held in jail from April 2 until May 30 of that year, according to the suit; charges against him were dropped on June 13.

Family Court Corruption – Bill Windsor of Lawless America and Carver County Minnesota Victims

Motion to Reconsider…Ever Retaining a Family Law Attorney

Family CourtWhen getting a divorce, the first thing most people do is contact a family law attorney, as they have been conditioned to believe that they actually NEED an attorney. It’s important to understand that if you retain a family law attorney, you will relinquish control over your life to a highly paid stranger that really doesn’t care what happens to you or your family.

Other perks you can expect when you join the family court club? Well, there’s the membership fees ($50-$100,000 for a contentious split).That amount doesn’t ensure that you will actually have the marital dissolution process completed. It just means that your finances, property and parenting time (if you have kids), will be completely chaotic.  Remember ladies and gentlemen…This is all about conflict for profit!

You can also expect lots of gaslightng. What’s that you ask? Gaslighting is a game of mind control and intimidation that is used as a way of controlling, confusing and debilitating someone. Your ex may engage in it, but the real gaslighting is done with the collusion of the court professionals. They will take any information you present and spin and twist it against you, as well as selectively omit facts and evidence that support your claims. This makes you doubt your own memory, perception and sanity. But remember – you’re not crazy…the systems are!!!

Let’s see, what else do you get in the FC Club? Oh yeah, divorce attorneys do file paperwork and negotiate agreements, just NOT FOR YOU! The swirls of paperwork will be given to you in file boxes which you can dig in frantically over the next 5, 10, 15 or 18 years you’ll be involved in the system if you have kids and it’s contentious. You will be required to collect numerous affidavits from co-workers, friends, family, doctors, teachers and anyone else involved in your children”s lives to prove that you’re a fit parent. You will also get to bring in the court ordered mental health professionals and services that will be a part of your life for years. Who are these “experts”? They include parenting consultants, parenting time expediters, parenting coordinators,custody evaluators, forensic psychologists, guardians-ad-litem, early neutral evaluations, child interviews,reunification therapists, uncoupling therapy and mediation to name just a few.

So what is this really all about??? 2 Word s- MONEY LAUNDDERING! Nothing more-nothing less!

Do You Know Your AFCC? YOU SHOULD!

Excerpts

“Completely omitted from this AFCC history is the very relevant fact that Meyer Elkin also co-founded in 1985, the leading fathers rights group-Children’s Rights Counci;. Study these people and their site carefully because it is the “blueprint” of how the courts are organized to rig cases for their paid-up allies. Nobody has to slip an envelope full of cash into the pocket of co-conspirators to rig court cases for these people. It is all done for them by the government. They get their bribes paid for them!

The AFCC claims their focus is on training judges, custody evaluators and mediators about custody and divorce issues. But in reality they are a father focused organization and promoting alienation theories to explain away family violence by men. In reality they act as a “clearinghouse” for organized case rigging.”

“Basic Judicial ethics prohibits judges from belonging to organizations with people who appear before them in the court cases. However, this doesn’t stop the crooked AFCC affiliated judges from appointing Guardian at Litem (child’s attorneys) or court psychological evaluators who are AFCC members to the same cases which the AFCC member judge is handling. Also the AFCC conducts joint conferences with the CRC – fathers rights group – usually on the subject of Parental Alienation – which they all know has been discredited as being not a valid method for use in court evaluations.”

The men and women I have met have been assaulted by ethical violations, legal abuses, betrayal and fraud and retainment of each of the legal professionals has only aggravated the problems they were employed to remedy.

And if you think you can ever hold these “professionals” accountable for their sins against you, guess again!
