Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

Narcs gone wild, narcs cheating on their pay, narcs stealing dope, narcs lying on the stand, a perverted sheriff heads to prison, and that's just the half of it. Let's get to it:

In Philadelphia, a scandal over the behavior of the Philadelphia police Narcotics Field Unit keeps growing. Originally centered on narcotics officer Jeffrey Cujdik and accusations he lied in documenting drug arrests, the stench from the narcotics squad keeps getting more foul. Numerous convenience store owners have reported Cujdik and his squad members raided their shops, destroyed surveillance cameras in the stores, trashed the places, stole cigarettes, took thousands in cash while reporting much less, and then arrested them for selling small plastic bags that could be used to contain drugs. The Philadelphia Daily News interviewed seven store owners with remarkably similar stories, including several who said the narcs took food and slurped energy drinks, and others who said they stole cigarette cartons, batteries, cell phones, and candy bars. At least three of Cudjdik's snitches told the newspaper he gave them cartons of cigarettes. A special task force of FBI and Philadelphia police internal affairs was already investigating Cujdik over the earlier allegations; now that probe could spread to at least 17 other officers and three police supervisors involved in the convenience store raids.

In McKeesport, Pennsylvania, the entire McKeesport Police narcotics unit has been implicated in a pay scam. Seven officers were suspended last week after Chief Joe Pero discovered they were billing the city for court appearances they never made. Those suspended include two lieutenants and all four members of the dope squad. All have been reassigned. No word yet on any possible criminal charges.

In Alamagordo, New Mexico, an Alamagordo Department of Public Safety undercover narcotics officer was arrested last Friday after fellow officers noticed him acting erratically, took him to a hospital for drug testing, and received a positive drug test result. Richard Ramsdale then went down for trafficking by possession with intent to distribute after further investigation uncovered 1.3 pounds of unaccounted for cocaine in his cruiser. He was booked into the Otero County Jail and placed on administrative leave pending a termination hearing.

In New York City, an NYPD narcotics detective was indicted Monday on charges she perjured herself in a drug case. Detective Debra Eager was a little over-eager to make a collar stick when she told a court she and her partner watches two drug suspects carrying boxes into a building. She testified that she then followed the pair into the building, arrested them, and seized 33 pounds of marijuana. But she didn't realize the building was under video surveillance, which directly contradicted her testimony. The case was thrown out, and Eager was indicted on three counts of first-degree perjury, each worth up to seven years in prison. She is also suspended without pay.

In New Orleans, a rookie New Orleans police officer was arrested Saturday in a string of home invasion assaults originally thought to have been committed by someone impersonating a police officer. Officer Darrius Clipps faces numerous charges after admitting he had burst into the women's homes, demanded drugs and money, and forced his victims to undress. Clipps went down after a composite sketch of the suspect was released and several of his fellow officers recognized him. He faces charges of malfeasance in office, sexual battery, false imprisonment with a weapon, simple and aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary, and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling. He resigned upon arrest.

In Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, a Luzerne County Correctional Facility officer was charged March 18 with being part of a multi-million dollar drug trafficking ring run by the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. Guard John Gonda, 38, was one of 22 people arrested by SWAT teams belonging to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office in wrapping up a ring officials said was distributing a kilogram of cocaine every 10 days. Investigators seized 528 grams of cocaine, cutting agents, drug paraphernalia, more than $5,000 cash, rifles, shotguns, handguns, bulletproof vests, the gang's bylaws and a list of Outlaw associates in prison. Officials said they did not know if Gonda was peddling coke at the jail.

In Dallas, a Dallas County sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty this week to plotting to rip off drug dealers. Standric Choice, 36, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine. Choice had plotted with two other men to steal cocaine from a dealer by having one of them pretend to be a snitch, then arresting the snitch and taking the cocaine from the dealer. He went down in a sting at a Dallas truck stop. He now faces 10 years to life in federal prison and a $4.25 million fine.

In Memphis, two former Memphis officers were sentenced March 18 in a federal corruption case in which they admitted stealing drugs from dealers and reselling them. Former officers Antoine Owens and Alexander Johnson were sentenced in federal court to five years and two years respectively after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to violate civil rights. They admitted conspiring with two other Memphis police officers to use their police authority to stop drug dealers, then steal dope and cash from them.

In Fairview, Oklahoma, a former Custer County Sheriff was sentenced Tuesday to 79 years in prison for sexually abusing female prisoners and drug court defendants. Former Sheriff Mike Burgess was sentenced on felony charges including five counts of second-degree rape. He was convicted of using his power over the women to force them to have sex with him.

In Brownsville, Texas, a former San Benito police officer was sentenced Tuesday to more than 13 years in federal prison for scheming with one other San Benito police officer and a local small business owner to rip off drug loads. Edgar Heberto Lopez and his partners in crime stole 200 to 300 pounds of pot during a February 2003 traffic stop, paid a tow truck driver $1,000 to haul the vehicle with the pot to a safe location in San Benito, and later sold 50 pounds of their stash to an undercover officer in February 2004. The two cops got $7,500 each in that deal. The next month, they stole six kilograms of cocaine during another traffic stop. They were supposed to get $10,000 for that heist; instead they got busted. Lopez pleaded guilty in July 2004, but fled before sentencing, only to be recaptured in April 2008. He has been jailed ever since, and he will be for a long time after pleading guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent marijuana, possession with intent to distribute more than 100 pounds of marijuana, carrying a firearm during the commission of a crime, and failure to appear.

Looking for the easiest way to join the anti-drug war movement? You've found it!

wow.

Truly wow. Is anyone really surprised though? What's the quote I'm looking for again...

Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely

It's becoming less and less arguable that our police force members are trustworthy, positively contributing citizens. How embarrassing to those decent officers who don't steal and resell drugs or rape women. (I'm sure at least a few must exist somewhere)

They, judges, call it 'Testilying' and are powerless...

They, judges, call it 'Testilying' and are powerless... so they say... to do anything about it!

'Testilying' has become so common in the halls of justice that the exception has become the rule... and judges lament not being able to arrest the trend... all is fair in war... i guess.

Police, like politicians, 'bear false witness' routinely... it is a very effective form of coercion and control.

Crooked Cops

I used to wear a badge and I wore it with honor, never, ever violating the sacred oath I took each time while others used it as a passport to gain freebies, intimidate citizens and engage in conduct that was either questionable or downright criminal. Of course I was despised for my behavior and beliefs. That is why to this day I abhor those cops that violate their fiduciary capacity and they should be dealt with to the maximum extent of the law. An old adage but if you can't trust the police, who can you trust?

Law Enforcement Corruption

You are a good man.

Federal Narc Agent Retired

For all the cops that are honest enough to admit to their crimes, there's a whole line of crooks above them in their chain of command that are just a crooked and usually give the impression that being less than honest once in a while is acceptable. After all, let the perfect people (Judges & Lawyers) prosecute and police organizations will cover up the rest if possible when appropriate. Fast as Fast can be you can't catch the cops unless they admit to their crimes. The toughest gang I know has the government's approval seal stamped on everything it does. I can't stand dishonesty in police work, hence, I'm retired.

re: Federal Narc agent retired

When I read that, it brought tears to my eyes. A dishonest public servant not just breaks laws, they break people..They ruin our faith in human nature, our respect for each other, and the protection that we as citizens have a right to..There is no excuse, They should be tried for treason, It is ruining our country. I am so sorry we have to lose good men in our government. There seem to be so few in law enforcement as it is.

Carnivorous CO “Asset Forfeiture Bill” Postponed Indefinitely

Public resistance was fierce:

HB09-1238 if passed, would have been a Forfeiture Field Day for Colorado Sheriffs. Police no longer wanted to wait for a criminal conviction to forfeit someone’s property, a requirement in Colorado.

Sheriffs wanted asset forfeiture bill HB09-1238 to repeal the “conviction first” requirement and to enact the low standard of civil evidence to forfeit property—“A Preponderance of Evidence”, little more than hearsay. HB09-1238 would have repealed police having to file an-annual asset forfeiture report with the department of local affairs—blocking public view what assets were seized by police.

HB09-1238 would have opened the door for police to target business and homeowners for Civil Asset Forfeiture in “poor communities” where crime rates are higher. Poor neighborhoods, schools and community services dependent on property taxes might have been economically impacted by dropping real estate values, the result of multifamily and other residential investors being frightened away by the HB09-1238 “no conviction needed” to forfeit property law.

Colorado’s HB09 civil asset forfeiture law could have hit the rich. Expensive Colorado resort properties used by occupants for illegal purposes—even if unbeknownst to the owner, could be civilly forfeited on the basis an owner “had reason to know” of lawbreaking activities. For example a parent “had reason to know” their teenager staying at the Colorado vacation house might get into trouble—again. Under HB09-1238 no one would need to be convicted of a crime for police to civilly forfeit a vacation owner’s property.

Had this bill passed, it is foreseeable less people would want to purchase a Colorado vacation home if they intended to rent it: property management companies might have been vulnerable to lawsuits from property owners losing rented homes to civil asset forfeiture.

Realistically it is not possible 100% of the time for owners to stop patrons and tenants breaking laws at their e.g., rented home, apartment building, restaurant, or motel. Federal Civil Asset Forfeiture requires a lower standard of evidence—than criminal evidence.“ a Preponderance of Civil Evidence.” Some states may require “Clear and Convincing Evidence.”

Civil asset forfeiture does not require that anyone be charged with a crime: government can use as civil evidence to forfeit a real property, that the owner reported to police their tenant was dealing drugs to show the owner—had prior knowledge. There are over 200 U.S. laws and violations that can make assets subject to civil asset forfeiture. For example a misrepresentation on a federally insured mortgage loan application can make your home—forever subject to federal civil asset forfeiture i.e., the five-year statue of limitations begins to run from the date a federal agency discovers the misrepresentation on a loan application.

To help protect Americans from continuing police forfeiture abuse, Congress should pass legislation that raises the standard of evidence U.S. Government uses for Civil Asset Forfeiture from a mere “Preponderance of Evidence”, to “Clear and Convincing Evidence. All states should require someone must first be convicted of a crime before their property can be forfeited.

Outrageously Colorado HB09-1238 would have prevented—a court—staying a “Civil Asset Forfeiture Proceeding” until a criminal trial related to the owner’s seized property was finished.

Colorado Citizens need to be Alert to stop the next “police asset forfeiture bill.”

asset seisure

Kill these fucking police.

Really?

Won't do any good, in so many ways! They can easily be replaced, just like drug dealers are! The above bill is a prime example of the laws working, for a change.

Kill a policeman....You either die in the resultant fire-fight. Or, you go to prison for life, (or get the death penalty). Even, I don't consider the right to smoke a doobie worth the sacrifice of my life! That is why I don't drink much booze! That stuff will kill you , too!

But, alas, your statement is just plain idiotic, no matter how it is interpreted!

Honest Citizens Are Overwhelmed by Police Corruption

Each day it becomes more difficult to distinguish the activities of increasing corrupt U.S. police from the drug-gangs they are suppose to arrest. Both rob, steal and threaten Citizens. I am inclined to believe police are now more dangerous than foreign drug-cartels and their U.S. associates. Cartel associates in the U.S. generally threaten and kill their own or the illegal-drug competition. U.S. corrupt police will falsify evidence and perjure testimony against most anyone just to get a conviction. That is more frightening for Americans than illegal drugs being sold. Police like criminals on probation, should be drug-tested every nine-days. At least then, Citizens can be more sure addicts are not wearing badges on the street.

According to a recent ABC

According to a recent ABC news report the FBI says corrupt public officials are on the rise due to the economic stimulus package. The FBI is stinging the ones that they know about; I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but it's everywher in this country.

Inasmuch as I HATE snitches, here's the real skinny: The FBI WANTS to know when corruption is occuring; and the Federal jude REALLY WANTS TO KNOW WHEN CORRUPTION IS OCCURING.

So it's up to you citizen, compromise your principles and snitch over liars, cheats and thieves or let the sociopaths and psychopaths destroy you. NO ONE is indispensible in case of emergency, anyway.

its only snitching when no

its only snitching when no real crime has been committing, like if you told on a neighbor smoking pot or some other non-crime made illegal by overbearing and corrupt government.

if their is actually a crime, as in a violation of someone's right to life, liberty or property, with an actual victim(only individual's have rights, society has none, so only individuals, real people can be victims) then its not snitching, its performing you civic duty.

Its sad that today the line between a snitch and a good citizen reporting an actual crime against a real person's rights has been blurred, thanks to the abomination of the drug war, or, as i call it: Prohibition-the sequel.

Snitching redefined

From what I understand "snitching" is turning someone else in (like your supplier) to get yourself out of jail, charges dropped, etc. The definition has, definitely, changed, from when I was a kid. Turning someone in for an illegal act like smoking cannabis, is more like being a busybody in your first description, and a normal ethical person, in the second.

And, if those, good, Christian people want to look it up, being a busybody is not such a good thing, as referred to in the Bible. It goes along with gossip, which can be equated with a "murdering tongue"!

SNITCHING REDEFINED

I BELIEVE IN A HIGHER POWER,BUT THE BIBLE WAS PROBALLY WRITEN BY A DRUNK,WHO WAS A GOOD WRITER WITH A REEL-GOOD REP-RA-TWA CHURCHES ARE WERE ALL THE HIPPOCRITS HANG OUT-SO THEY CAN FEEL SELF-WORTH

define 'snitch'

There's nothing wrong with telling the world if someone violates your trust. If a bully or a cheater objects to "snitching", why take ethical lessons from him?

It starts with drugs,

then the problem spills over to everyone. I live in a small community with a local police force. A friend of mine recently had an officer pull a gun on him because he got out of his car during a traffic stop. There is absolutely NO reason for officers to be pulling a gun on a citizen for any reason until an actual threat exists. My friend was driving his truck two blocks from his house at the time, about 4 blocks from the police station. When the police feel it necessary to draw a weapon when making a routine traffic stop, in this case failure to signal a turn, their paranoia has grown to the point of making them more dangerous to society than any actual criminals that may exist in our town. My friend was literally a sneeze away from getting blown away by this 'trained' professional. My experience with firearms is that you don't point one at anything or anyone unless you plan on killing it or them. I guess the same doesn't hold true for the police.

In my lifetime I have observed absolutely nothing about the behavior of the police that makes me in any way respect or trust them. They are all about getting over on the system, and protecting each other from the same laws they enforce vigorously on the population at large. Another friend of mine recently was arrested for DUI. Of course he had to pay to take 'alcohol awareness' classes as part of his 'punishment'. During his class, he inquired of the instructor as to how many police officers had ever attended the classes, to which the answer was a very predictable 'none'. It is a fact that police officers do drink and drive at just about the same rate as the rest of the population, they just don't seem to ever get caught or punished. How strange is that?

The only way our country will truly be 'free' is when the same laws are enforced equally for all. The system we have now is divisive and unjust.

cops are different, you see

Remember Lethal Weapon 4? Leo (Joe Pesci) doesn't have a badge, so Riggs (Mel Gibson) takes his gun away and throws it in the ocean; but Riggs has a badge, so it's okay for him to playfully point a gun point-blank at Leo's face.

I hope at least some cops had the decency to be as disgusted by that scene as I was. I wonder how many viewers thought "Right on!"

President Abraham Lincoln important quote

President Abraham Lincoln (December 1840):
"Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control mans' appetite through legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not even crimes... A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our Government was founded"

Check your research

That Lincoln quote was disproved to some time ago -- I believe it had something to do with it being fabricated during Prohibition I to advance the cause of relegalizing alcohol...if I remember correctly, but it's definitely made up. I agree with it, though -- and I'm thankful that so many other people believe in its sentiment...plus because it's considered Lincoln's by so many, it gets more reads!

Katie

how about this one?

Prohibition is an awful flop.
We like it.
It can't stop what it's meant to stop.
We like it.
It's left a trail of graft and slime,
It won't prohibit worth a dime,
It's filled our land with vice and crime.
Nevertheless, we're for it.

—Franklin P Adams, 1931

(I have no idea who Franklin Adams was, so it doesn't matter much whether it's 'genuine' or not)

POLICE SCRUTINY

All YOU BABIES THAT ARE WHINING ABOUT POIICE IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER PROBABLY COULDN'T QUALIFY FOR A POLICE JOB IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. SOUR GRAPES IN MOST CASES AS I CAN SEE FROM MOST OF THESE POSTS. AND IGNORANT IDIOTS TOO.

DO ANY OF YOU WATCH THE POLICE SHOW COPS? OR OTHER REALITY POLICE SHOWS. THESE POLICE ARE CONSTANTLY IN A STATE OF GRAVE DANGER BY CONSTANTLY HAVING TO CONFRONT DRUG CRAZED, (BOTH UNARMED AND ARMED) INDIVIDUALS, THAT WOULD KILL YOU, IF THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD GET AWAY WITH IT, EVEN JUST FOR A FEW BUCKS.

ARE THERE BAD COPS? YES. MAYBE 3%. ARE THERE USELESS COPS HELL YEA! PLENTY. BUT EVEN THE USELESS ONES ARE A TARGET OUT THERE WITH THEIR UNIFORMS ON. MOST LIKLEY ALL THE NEGATIVE POSTORS HERE HAVE BEEN ARRESTED, OR HAVE RELATIVES DOING TIME, OR ARE POTHEADS AND ARE JUST PISSED OFF THAT THEIR FAMILIES ARE TRASH. AND EVEN MORE SO THAT THE POT THAT THEY LOVE SO MUCH IS ILLEGAL.

cost is not the same thing as value

One often hears that cops "put their lives on the line" as if that puts an end to any question of the morality of prohibition, and/or excuses any harm they may do to the rest of us while protecting us from the horror of intoxication.

(If I remember right, cops are killed on the job less often than loggers or fishermen, but I don't hear anyone saying that crimes by loggers or fishermen ought to be ignored.)

If a high risk of death makes the job virtuous, then shouldn't the other side be our heroes? I would guess that the gangstas get killed on the job far more often than cops do.

As for corruption, if the good cops don't want the minority to make them look bad, they should remember whom they work for – not make excuses for the bad ones, or hush up their honest mistakes. Nothing says integrity like vigorous self-criticism.

re: police scrutiny

Let me tell you, Mr. anonymous. I am a 61 year old woman who has suffered 10 years of domestic terrorism, unlawful arrest.and imprisonment, civil rights violations, and much more than I care to mention..due to a corrupt police force..And you might notice, my OPINION is not shouted out in capital letters. Or neither am I signed in anonymous. That attitude is very easy to spot,  with your arrogance and justification, that the poor police are targets out there so we should overlook the brutality, is a whinny baby for you ! And the difference between you  and the people who you downgrade,ie.pot heads, pissed off family, or doing time, shows that they obviously don't do character evaluations at police academys, or 90% couldn't pass the exam. and the 10% scum that you refer to, would be the only honorable men and women out there,,because they took their punishment and you probably never will. And that sir is, trash !!

And that is why you are targets !

POLICE SCRUTINY YOUR THE IDIOT 3% WE SHOULD BE SO LUCKY

WHO OWNES YOUR BODY?

• Personal Defense
• It is above question that each individual holds the unalienable right to completely own and manage his or her body. No one is more qualified than you to manage your body responsibly and with dignity. The silly assumption that government personnel, who make as many mistakes as everyone else, can successfully manage their bodies AND yours shows the unmatched ignorance of government officials, especially judges and prosecutors.
• Constitutional Defense
• The Fourth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments of the Bill of Rights make it clear that government has no authority to own or manage our bodies. Individual ownership rights extend to decisions for your body, defense of your body, health care choices, privacy, gun possession on your person, body decoration, alternative medicines and supplements, vaccinations, and more. Laws claiming government ownership of your body demonstrate that the greatest threat to human rights is always from one’s own government.
• Jury Defense
• You, as one individual, cannot do much to effect legislation. But as a juror, YOU can effectively defend each person’s absolute ownership of his or her body. One person can “hang” a jury by refusing to convict. If you are called to serve on a jury, do so! In turn, if your individual management of your body is ever described as a crime, because the government claims ownership of your body, wouldn’t you want a member of your jury to know that was a fraud? You want jurors who understand that they can hang a jury by simply stating that the prosecutor failed to prove the government case. Or you can state no reason for your verdict, as is your right.
• Defense with Knowledge
• More information on defending this absolute right to own and manage your body, which gives you the knowledge to defeat the lies of lawyers and judges, is available at www.fija.org. You and your family and friends will want to learn and share this priceless knowledge about jury authority. It is the best peaceful means to protect us all.
• The History and Effect of Jury Nullification
• Liberty exists only among reasoning people who are tolerant of human diversity. Tyranny thrives on intolerance. Conscientious jurors defend liberty when they refuse to convict fellow citizens maliciously accused of crimes. Reasoning jurors stopped the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and freed tax protesters after the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. Juries refused to convict under the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850, during Prohibition 1920-30, Vietnam War objectors, tax protesters, medical marijuana users, peaceful gun owners, and others.
• The last peaceful defense of our liberties is the jury. Writers of our Constitution understood that power always corrupts. The people must retain, understand and use all the processes to defend themselves from the greatest threat to liberty: one’s own government. Informed grand jurors and trial jurors can protect you from bad government laws.
• There are countless inferior laws, based on government’s assumed ownership of our bodies that contradict the superior laws of our Constitution and common law. With all the bad laws on the books, it is only a matter of time before you, your family, or friends are accused of some crime. Your last peaceful line of defense is informed jurors who refuse to convict under bad laws based on government’s assumed ownership of your body. You hold all rights to completely own and be responsible for your body.
• Corrupt prosecutors and judges are common. Anyone can easily go through the process to become a lawyer or judge. The US is overrun by them. They are common people, who hold no more intelligence or reasoning ability than any other common person, and often less because of their egos and craving for more power. The duty and design of the citizen juror is to apply reasoning devoid of any craving for power. Lawyers and judges literally cannot understand that concept, even if they read these words, which is why wise people instituted the citizen jury system. Jurors hold the authority to render a verdict against the demands of power-hungry lawyers and judges.
• Today, your understanding of the authority for juror nullification is critically important due to increasing numbers of fear-based laws. These laws are supported by both political parties, by politically-appointed government judges and prosecutors, and by United Nations leadership.
• Jurors can nullify bad laws by refusing to convict people being tried under those laws. When jurors refuse to convict, legislators and prosecutors know the law is NOT supported by the community. Acquittals and hung juries are politically embarrassing to legislators, power craving prosecutors, bureaucrats, and most judges.
• It cost many lives to establish a jury system designed to protect our individual rights. One informed person on each jury can regain these rights.
• Defending Body Ownership Creates an Alliance of Traditional Opponents
• Many favorite rights of conservatives, and other favorite rights of liberals, have been reduced to privileges, granted or denied at whim of government officers, by the same flawed process. That process assumes government ownership of individual bodies, and implies the willful surrender of that right by the individual.
• As an adult, if you willfully surrendered your right to ingest substances of your choice, or to have a gun on your person, which are actions of the body that damage no other person, by not expressly objecting to gun and drug laws, you do not own your body. The government owns it. That concept in law has voided human rights, replacing them with privileges, because uninformed jurors have not protected the absolute right of all conservatives and liberals to own and manage their own bodies.
• JURY DEFENSE OF YOUR BODY
• Juror nullification occurs when a juror refuses to convict a person because of bad or misapplied law. Many bad laws are based on government’s falsely-assumed ownership of your body. Refusing to enforce bad laws by nullifying them is the highest duty of a juror. Jurors can defend your ownership and management of your body, and thus all of your other rights. Jurors have the authority to judge the law and its application, and to veto bad laws by “not guilty” verdicts. Jurors cannot be punished for their verdicts.
• If you want to defend an individual’s ownership of his or her body, you must first get on the jury. During jury selection, lawyers and judges try to remove informed people from juries. Power-corrupted lawyers and judges depend on seating jurors who will do whatever they are told by government, even in violation of good conscience, reasoning, common sense and constitutional law.
• When called for jury duty and questioned about your understanding of the law or issues, consider stating that you do not keep track of political issues, and that you can apply the law as instructed by the court. If asked, suggest that you do not remember if you belong to any particular organizations because you get too many junk mail organizational solicitations. Imply an impartial attitude.
• You may be the only informed person on the jury. The judge’s instructions and oaths to the jurors are designed to fool jurors and protect the raw power of judges. Despite their official-sounding nature, these instructions to jurors cannot be legally binding, or there would be no need for the authority of independently-thinking jurors.
• You hold the absolute right to vote your conscience. If the accused did not identifiably damage an actual person, you can find him or her not guilty. Regardless of other jurors, you cannot be forced to change your verdict. You can state that the government prosecutor did not prove the government case. Or you can state no reason for your verdict, as is your right.
• THE INDIVIDUAL JURIOR: THE LAST PEACEFUL DEFENSE OR YOUR RIGHTS AGAINST GOVERNMENT POWER
• Your body and minds right of: expressions thoughts possessions medicines recreation and work
• Government judges and prosecutors crave raw power beyond the legal limit to their authority. That power can only exist if the person brought before the court is deceived by process into surrendering ownership of his or her body, and responsibility for individual decisions about that body, to government and the courts. Informed jurors, who do not seek any power, can defend the right of individual ownership of the body for everyone, equally. Jurors can refuse to convict if the government’s case is based on the concept of government owning an individual’s body, or if the government judges or prosecutors pretend to have any right to make or enforce any decisions about an individual’s body.
• WHO OWNS YOUR BODY?
• “The right of the people to be secure in their persons ... against unreasonable searches and
seizures shall not be violated ...”
• The human right that controls all other rights is the absolute ownership and management of one’s own body. Without complete ownership of your body, you cannot hold rights.
• Throughout history, kings and dictators claimed ownership of everyone’s body as a way to control all people and their actions. The U.S. Constitution reversed that flawed form of government. But now, government again claims the power of kings, seizing ownership of your body. Their actions, rather than their lies, prove that the government holds no compassion or respect for you. To government, your body is merely a working device it owns, to be taxed.

• The Jury is your defense.
WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO GET INFORMED OUR GOVERNMENT IS PASSING LAWS THAT ARE UNCONSTATUTIONAL WE THE PEOPLE CAN STOP THIS…
THE BIGGEST AND MOST POWERFUL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN THE UNITED STATES HAS THE ABSOLUTE NON-NEGOTIABLE POWER TO IGNORE GOVERNMENT LAWS, KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON, IGNORE JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS, MAKE THE OUTCOME OF ANY JURY TRIAL WHAT THEY WANT IT TO BE, AND MAKE OUR GOVERNMENT HONEST.
