Connecticut, A Liar's Paradise for Judges and Cops

Full of Crap

The Connecticut Judiciary might be guilty of everything except raping alter boys behind the pew. They came up with an email where you can complain to them, about them.

Alert the media, they might actually do something to fix their BS.

The Judiciary runs everything in Connecticut. The type of toilet paper sold in the state might also be a pick of their iron hand written with metal fingers.

The Police are Armed Revenue Collectors, and the elected officials are puppets that have butts that really hurt from where they get stuck by the police and the Black Robed Mafia, the Judges.

An email I have received from the “Lie Their Faces off, Blacked Robed Mafia” within the post, click the link below.

The End of the Stark Raving Viking blog?

No, I don't intend on ending my blogging here on blogspot.com, but you can only post 900 to 999 posts on a blog here and that is it, so I remember reading.

I will start blogging at: http://thesrv.blogspot.com/ if and when that occurs. Maybe I'll see you there.

If you don't see me blogging for a while it might mean Connecticut again used its official liars and other officials to again put me in prison for pissing them off while testing Free Speech.

Officer arrested in drug, theft ring

Lesser charges for two others on Boston force

A Boston police officer was arrested late yesterday on federal charges, accused of being the ringleader in a wide-ranging criminal enterprise that allegedly involved guarding shipments of drugs and stolen goods, dealing in stolen store gift cards, stealing people's identities, and running illegal afterhours parties, two law enforcement officials said.

Two other veteran officers were also arrested yesterday on charges in connection with some of the alleged schemes, the officials said.

The three officers are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, one official said. The officers provided ``protective details" for the deliveries of several shipments of cocaine into the Boston area, the official said.

The case is focused on the alleged ringleader, Roberto Pulido, 41, a 10-year department veteran and motorcycle officer who is accused of netting thousands of dollars from the enterprise, the second official said.

Although the three officers are currently charged only with drug trafficking, investigators are also alleging in court documents expected to be made public today that one or more of the officers were involved in other crimes, the first official said.

Pulido is accused of taking information gleaned from driver's licenses of motorists he stopped while on duty and selling it to identity fraud rings that used the information for bogus credit cards, the first official said. A ``significant" number of people were victimized, the official said.

Pulido also allegedly sold fraudulent gift cards from Home Depot. It was not clear last night how he allegedly obtained the gift cards.

And Pulido is accused of running parties with drugs, alcohol, and prostitutes, the law enforcement officials said.

The officials said Pulido recruited two other Boston officers -- Nelson Carrasquillo, 35, a seven-year department veteran and also a mobile operations officer, and Carlos Pizarro, 36, a 10-year veteran who is on injured leave -- to guard sizable drug shipments, stolen property, and other contraband deliveries.

More details on the case are expected to emerge today when the officers appear in US District Court. So far, no one else has been charged in the case, the officials said.

The charges stem from a two-year joint investigation by the FBI and the Boston police anticorruption unit, the second official said. Federal authorities typically investigate and prosecute public and police corruption because they often lead to federal charges.

After beginning to investigate Pulido, the FBI brought the anticorruption unit into the probe, the official said. Over time, the investigation broadened to include two other Boston police officers whom Pulido considered close friends and allegedly brought into his enterprises later, the official said.

The official said that if the officers are convicted of all the charges they face, they could each face more than a decade in prison. Their records with the department were not available last night.

If the allegations prove true, they would be the worst corruption case involving the Boston Police Department in years.

In 2003, a civilian employee was indicted and charged by federal prosecutors with taking $21,500 in bribes from nine Russian immigrants seeking taxi licenses despite not having passed a required examination. Negisti Medhanie, who had worked in the department's hackney division from 1989 to 1999, pleaded guilty last year to 30 counts of racketeering, money laundering, and other charges.

In 2000, a former officer pleaded guilty to extorting more than $40,000 in bribes from more than 150 people seeking taxi licenses.

In 1998, two longtime detectives were sentenced to three years after pleading guilty to using their badges to steal more than $200,000 in cash and goods in federal prison for his role in a $7 million heroin smuggling ring.

In 1995, an officer was indicted on charges that he demanded money from drivers in return for ignoring traffic violations or not towing cars that were not registered.

A judge later dismissed the charges because of the officer's weak heart, but ordered him to resign, placed him on probation on a series of larceny charges, and ordered him to forfeit $75,000 in back pay.

And in 1988, seven officers were sent to prison in a corruption scandal after being convicted of extortion and racketeering. They were accused of taking about $18,000 in bribes from bar owners over the course of a decade.

Is Lyme Disease bigger and more expensive than A.I.D.S./H.I.V. in the USA?

Well Lyme Disease is often misdiagnosed. Nobody is watching the watchers. Profits can be made on B.S. and insurance companies can not pay out on B.S. An informed public would solve this problem, but the current fear of an out of control American Government may prevent the world from knowing the actual truth.

Lyme is a recurring fever, there is no known cure yet. The effective treatment can cost in excess of $100,000 per individual for a year’s treatment. Lyme will relapse and a patient needs continuing treatment. Those that are out to profit on the lies and not pay out insurance on lies have friends in the White House and in the State of Connecticut, as Yale has power beyond the Connecticut borders. Do you remember the lies and the hype of HIV AIDS?

Study a little of bioweapons research and how pharmaceutical companies operate above and below radar and a pattern and mode of operation is revealed.

People are being harmed. Children are being harmed. Families suffer. Those that have connected the dots and that speak out suffer the consequences of going against very powerful people and organizations that are doing all they can to keep the truth from coming out.

There are telephone book volumes, reams of paper, and so much data it can boggle the mind. Because of this, the American people and the world is mostly in the dark.

I don’t think I have Lyme Disease or any other condition to my knowledge, so I am not speaking out on this issue because of a personal beef.

My personal beef is that we don’t seem to have what our forefathers expounded on, freedom, and a system with checks and balances. Police and Judges legislate from the bench and secret meetings, elected officials are only for show, there is no accountability and we are taxed and ruled without real representation, if the courts and police operate without oversight, accountability, and transgressors punished.

Try doing a word search without quotes on Lyme Disease, maybe put Connecticut in, maybe put in Yale University, or maybe even try putting Kathleen Dickson in.

I just blogged a little on this subject on MySpace.com and found myself banned on Connecticut related forums. I blogged on the subject on www.freespeech.com and the site went down just minutes later.

Jackasses rule and you, your kids, America, and the world is now suffering. Is this ok with you?

Tests on human volunteers were carried out until 1989

MoD tests on humans 'unethical'

Some trials of chemical agents on human volunteers at Porton Down laboratories were "unethical", according to a report published by the Ministry of Defence.

The report says a number of tests in the 1940s and 1950s involved "serious departures" from the ethical standards that should have been observed.

But the report's independent ethical assessor said concerns related to only a few of the hundreds of tests done.

Sir Ian Kennedy said they had never gone beyond what should be tolerated.

Professor Kennedy oversaw the work of MoD officials conducting a historical survey of tests at Porton Down, launched in 2000 in response to the concerns of veterans that they may have suffered lasting damage to their health.

He said there was "no evidence to justify a conclusion that the conduct of the trials at any point went beyond the limits of what should ever be contemplated, far less tolerated, in a civilised society".

Nerve agents

Among the tests Professor Kennedy highlighted which he felt may not have met ethical standards were:

  • Trials of liquid nerve agents on bare skin, carried out between 1951 and 1953, including one test which led to the death of 20-year-old Leading Aircraftman Ronald Maddison in 1953

  • The trials in 1951 of the nerve agent GD, in which the lethal dose was not known with sufficient certainty

  • The trial in 1958 of the nerve agent VX, which involved the use of what, at the time, was regarded as the lethal dose

  • The trials in 1942 involving the exposure of volunteers to H vapour in the scrotal region, in which he said it appeared likely volunteers gave no real consent

  • The trial in 1945 of a substance from captured German shells, which exposed volunteers to danger without first seeking to determine the nature of the substance

    Moral standards

    He also said there were "question marks" over experiments carried out from the 1950s to the 1970s in which the eye condition miosis was artificially induced, which he said "might be said by some to have constituted too great a step into the unknown".

    But Professor Kennedy said the tests were carried out in "a thorough, painstaking, careful and often ingenious manner" and were "obviously of great importance in assessing military effectiveness".

    And he cautioned against judging the researchers involved against the moral standards of today's comparatively peaceful world.

    "The work was conducted at Porton in difficult times," he said.

    National security

    In response to the report, the MoD said in a statement: "These trials must be viewed in the context of the Second World War and the Cold War and their associated pressures.

    "The nation was facing a real threat and these trials were essential for national security in that context.

    "Much has changed in law and ethics in the half century since many of these experiments and there is a danger in seeking to apply today's standards when those reflect evolution over that period and did not represent the prevailing standards at the relevant time."

    It added: "The Ministry of Defence is very grateful to all those whose participation in studies at Porton Down made possible the research to provide safe and effective protection for UK Armed Forces."


  • No charges over Porton Down tests

    Lyme Disease Cover-up

    Lisa Masterson 06.04.2006 18:19 Anti-militarism Bio-technology Health South Coast World

    Lyme disease is a sensitive matter for the US (and associated governments') military. They would prefer the public to believe that the illness is "hard-to-catch", "easy-to-cure" and totally unsuitable as a neurological incapacitating agent. This is a lie.
    Now a simple microscopy technique might help many patients confirm what the government-backed health agencies deny.

    Lyme disease is, for countless patients, a chronic, devastating, incapacitating disease. However, most patients in the US and western Europe find it very hard to get correct diagnosis and treatment.

    The reason? Lyme disease, caused by a bacteria, and often aggravated by co-infections with other pathogens acquired at the same time from a tick-bite, is a matter of intense interest to bioweaponeers. As a result, government-backed health agencies such as the NIH, CDC in US, Eucalb in Europe, HPA in Britain etc are deliberately suppressing factual evidence regarding this disease. Their aim is to make the public believe that it is a trivial "hard-to-catch", "easily-cured" infection, which almost never incapacitates.

    This is a lie.

    One of the biggest hurdles that adults and children face when they acquire Lyme disease is simply being diagnosed correctly. Often, this is because their intensely disabling symptoms such as crushing fatigue, memory loss, severe pains (often migrating from one location to the next), sound sensitivity, weakness etc are dismissed as "subjective" by their doctor, especially when routine tests come up normal. They may then be told they are "somatising", hypochondriacs, malingering, or otherwise have a psychological cause for their illness.

    One of the first priorities of a bioweaponeer when designing a biological weapon is to ensure that the agent evades detection. A bacteria or other pathogen that does not leave telltale signs on routine tests is ideal, from the twisted point of view of the men who make microbes to maim and murder.

    Unable to gather objective signs or markers of the illness, the medical professionals of the target population are at a loss to identify the agent that has been used, much less to give correct treatment in time. In Lyme, if treatment is not given right at the beginning, chronic, persistent or recurring disablement is often the result.

    The bacteria that causes Lyme disease is of the genus Borrelia, the same as that which causes Relapsing Fever. Both tick-borne and louse-borne relapsing fevers have historically been devastating illnesses for humans, especially in wartime, when people are living in prison camps or otherwise under terrible conditions. These often fatal diseases are endemic in many of the poorest nations.

    The relapsing fever borrelia is extremely difficult to culture, so the traditional method of diagnosing this borrelia was by viewing a drop of blood under a darkfield microscope. Darkfield is necessary because the width of the spiral-shaped germs is so thin.

    Are Lyme borrelia really so different? Could doctors not do the same, to detect this borrelia in Lyme patients' blood?

    Ever since the early 1980's, when Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer Alan Barbour was reported as having cultured the Lyme bacteria for the first time, the public and the scientific profession has been assured that it is almost impossible to view Lyme borrelia in blood. (The EIS is an elite, quasi-military unit of Infectious Disease specialists run under the auspices of the American Center for Disease Control, the CDC. It was created in the McCarthyite era for the purpose of offensive biowarfare R&D, which at the time, was legal. Today, Barbour is head of a new biowarfare "centre of excellence" at UCI in Irvine, California.)

    Barbour and the rest of the government-backed Steere camp (after Allen Steere, "discoverer" of Lyme, and also an EIS officer at the time) state that there is simply no use searching for Lyme borrelia in blood, and that it is only present there in tiny numbers, or not at all. Doctors have been encouraged to rely instead on antibody detecting tests, such as Elisa or Western Blot.

    But these tests are notoriously insensitive, especially as Lyme borrelia, like their cousins which cause the relapsing fevers, practise the tactic of "antigenic variation" . This means swapping outer surface antigens (antigens are proteins that cause your body's immune cells to produce specific antibodies against them), bringing out **new** antigens which fool the immune system, just when it had managed to get the production of defensive antibodies against the first set started. The result is that many very ill patients will not show up on the antibody tests.

    Researchers studying the disease have always been encouraged to grow blood or other samples in the BSK culture medium before viewing under darkfield. The "B" in "BSK stands for Barbour. Could Alan Barbour, of the EIS, have given the world a medium that is only good for growing certain sub-types of borrelia, ie especially those that are "easily cured in three weeks", and rarely incapacitating, but not very good at growing the actual borrelia sub-types that afflict the majority of patients?

    That would explain why several European doctors, **not** following the dictates of the Steere camp, have been able to see the live borrelia in both the traditional spiral-form and the cell wall deficient forms, under darkfield microscope, in an ordinary drop of blood, which has not been cultured in BSK medium.

    Mark Stroud is a Lyme sufferer who has built his own darkfield microscope from easily available parts. He has seen and filmed what appear to be borrelia and possibly cell wall deficient borrelial forms too, in a simple drop of his own blood (and of others). Prior to testing his blood, Mark had PCR (polymerase chain reaction) confirmation of the presence of Lyme borrelia in his blood. PCR is extremely specific, as it is based on unique sequences of DNA. In other words, if you have a positive PCR for borreliosis, it is very, very unlikely you have something else instead.

    Please visit Mark's website at www.lyme-diagnosis.org.uk .I know Mark personally and can assure you he is not selling anything. If you or a loved one is suffering Lyme disease, please ask your doctor to view a simple drop of blood under darkfield as Mark has done, or, if your doctor will not do it , try to get access to a darkfield microscope yourself. If possible, film and record your results.

    I have had constant harassment, internet hacking attempts, and death threats since I first suggested publicly that the facts regarding Lyme disease have been deliberately suppressed by the US government -backed Steere camp. However, in the last few weeks, the harassment has become much more intense, since talking to Mark Stroud about the possibility of Lyme patients, en masse, viewing ordinary blood smears under videomicroscopy, without culture in BSK medium first.

    I take it the US government, and allied governments, such as my own in Britain, are very frightened of the prospect of patients trying this out for themselves.

    If anyone has tried to view their blood under darkfield microscopy and would like to discuss their findings, please email me at lymerayja AT yahoo.co.ukremovespam (Please remove "removespam" and replace "at" with "@".) Thank you.

    The Philosophy of keeping Blacks from reproducing and confined

    Excerpt: (the below found here)

    On Muslims

    Among the Muslim community in the United States, Pipes is generally regarded as a controversial character. [29]


    "There is no escaping the unfortunate fact that Muslim government employees in law enforcement, the military, and the diplomatic corps need to be watched for connections to terrorism, as do Muslim chaplains in prisons and the armed forces. Muslim visitors and immigrants must undergo additional background checks. Mosques require a scrutiny beyond that applied to churches, synagogues, and temples. Muslim schools require increased oversight to ascertain what is being taught to children." --The Jerusalem Post, January 22, 2003 p.9

    "Western European societies are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene...All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most." (National Review, November 19, 1990)

    On his website, Daniel Pipes notes that the above quote "has over the years attracted considerable attention. My goal in this article ([30]) was to characterize the thinking of Western Europeans, not give my own views. In retrospect, I should either have put the words "brown-skinned peoples" and "strange foods" in quotation marks or made it clearer that I was explaining European attitudes rather than my own. By way of example of those attitudes, here are some quotations from top French politicians from that era" Following this are quotes from Jacques Chirac, François Mitterrand and Valery Giscard d'Estaing.

    Of African-American Muslims, Pipes wrote: "...black converts tend to hold vehemently anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Semitic attitudes." (Commentary, June 1, 2000)

    In an October 16, 1997 article in the The Jewish Exponent, Pipes claimed that "as the population of Muslims in the United States grows, so does antisemitism." ("The New Anti-Semitism," [31])

    An article in the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs written by Sister Elaine Kelley, Chair of "Friends of Sabeel—North America" (a support group for the Palestinian Christian anti-Zionist[32] groupSabeel), July 2001, claims that Pipes told an audience at Portland State University that "Arab people live in some of the worse conditions in the world, without freedom to travel or modern media." He blamed those conditions on the Arabs’ "political obsession with Israel" (instead of their own societies); according to Kelley he added "The Palestinians are a miserable people, and they deserve to be"[33] but Pipes denies ever saying this.[34]

    "The bombing on February 22 of the Askariya shrine in Samarra, Iraq, was a tragedy, but it was not an American or a coalition tragedy. ... [W]hen Sunni terrorists target Shi'ites and vice versa, non-Muslims are less likely to be hurt. ... Civil war in Iraq, in short, would be a humanitarian tragedy but not a strategic one." (New York Sun, February 28, 2006 [35])

    In a speech to the American Jewish Congress in October 2001, he said:

    I worry very much, from the Jewish point of view, that the presence, and increased stature, and affluence, and enfranchisement of American Muslims, because they are so much led by an Islamist leadership, that this will present true dangers to American Jews. [36]

    If you are willing to pay the price — a price that would amount to a British prison population of roughly 250,000 if your sentencing followed the American model — you can reduce crime dramatically.

    All of these are policies that the British political establishment may come to accept in another decade or so. If London were to get a mayor who decided to take the homeless off the streets, scrub away the graffiti and adopt a zero-tolerance policing policy, I suspect he would find the same surge in popularity that Rudy Giuliani experienced in New York.

    British parents are increasingly vocal about their dissatisfaction with schools, and especially with their spinelessness in dealing with disruptive children. In every area of life that the underclass affects, the public mood is shifting towards support of the American solution.Politicians who covet votes will come around eventually.

    Hence my prediction that in 15 years, perhaps less, the underclass/Neet will no longer be a political issue in Britain and urban life for most of you will be more pleasant than it is now. The price will have been a great deal of money spent on prisons and, in effect, the writing-off of a portion of the population as unfit for civil society.

    In the United States I have called this the coming of custodial democracy — literally custodial for criminals, figuratively custodial for the neighbourhoods we seal away from the rest of us. Custodial democracy is probably headed your way.

    It is not a happy solution. On the contrary, it means abandoning a central tenet of a free society — that everyone can exercise equal responsibility for his or her own life. But Britain, like the United States and western Europe, is locked into a welfare state that by its nature generates large numbers of feckless people. If we are unwilling to prevent an underclass by giving responsibility for behaviour back to individuals, their families, and communities, custodial democracy is the only option left.

    I was told there was some sort of police brutality protest in Stratford Connecticut, I did not confirm the information and the photos included for this post are from one of my trusted sources.

    Study the pictures. Does it look like real hair under the guys’ matching hats? Do protesters wear such matching garb or such ridiculous matching hats?

    The man in the “book suppository” style window ducked and ran after being discovered and photographed, his cover blown. Most people don’t look up.

    Various media and public onlookers will openly take photos as will most local and State Police, they want the better photos up close and personal.

    The FBI should be out making sure there is public safety and our internal security is a valid issue. I think the FBI should be looking into and correcting police brutality, not just keeping an eye on those victimized.

    Public Perception is starting to reflect a fear of government, a fear of retaliation for speaking out, and a fear of being arrested, having one’s family broken up, and ending up in prison just for witnessing something officials want kept under wraps. We should support our troops, but not those that send them into harm’s way, if they have agendas of protecting official criminals, profiteering, and officially obstructing justice.

    Judges make the rules and rarely follow them

    There should be no absolute immunity from prosecution.

    EDITORIALS (The Hartford Courant)

    The Imperial Judiciary

    July 16, 2006
    For nearly 200 years, the legislature and the judiciary in Connecticut have avoided an outright constitutional clash. The collision nearly came to Capitol Avenue last month.

    The former chief justice of the Supreme Court refused to testify before a legislative committee investigating his attempt to deceive the committee. Forcing him to testify, he argued, would violate the principle of separation of powers.




    SPONSORED LINKS

    The separation-of-powers doctrine - that one branch of government should not exercise the function of another - was not intended to make branches impervious to checks from other branches.

    But Connecticut's judiciary has used the doctrine to develop what a University of Connecticut law professor has called "exclusive and supreme" power to make its own rules for proceedings, practices and more.

    In 2003, the judiciary, invoking separation of powers, even refused to let state auditors look at judges' work-time records - a routine check for all other state agencies. The judiciary eventually agreed to release the anonymous records of some, but not all, judges.

    Rule-making powers were once shared by the General Assembly and the judiciary. But the Supreme Court, in the 1974 case State vs. Clemente, struck down a statute on court procedure on the grounds "that it infringed on the exclusive power of the judicial department," wrote University of Connecticut law professor Richard S. Kay in his seminal article "The Rule-Making Authority and Separation of Powers in Connecticut."

    Mr. Kay wrote a year after Clemente: "The court has asserted a potential claim to exclusive authority, which at least includes control over matters of practice and procedure."

    Connecticut's judiciary is not typical. In many other states, legislatures grant courts authority to make rules on procedures and practices; those rules are subject to review by the legislatures. Congress delegates rule-making to the Supreme Court, and its rules need the congressional nod. Connecticut's judiciary, however, can make its own rules in closed meetings. It may hold public hearings on proposed rules, but when the judges gather to vote, the public is barred.

    Considering that Connecticut's judges serve virtually lifetime appointments, this is a disturbing custom that insulates the courts from accountability. "Separation of power," Mr. Kay wrote, "must be coupled with the requirement that all significant actions of any department undergo review by an independent department."

    Judges must be protected from political meddling. Courts can't become politicized or they will lose trust. But this state's judiciary has walled itself off from reasonable checks on its workings.

    For example, reporters discovered a few years ago that judges had for two decades labeled certain cases "Level 1" and super-sealed them so no public traces of those records could be found. Many cases involved influential people, including judges. The Courant and the Connecticut Law Tribune sued in federal court to find out such basic information as the names of litigants and of the judges who approved the sealings.

    Judges voted (behind closed doors) to ban the practice. But they also voted to automatically seal all financial affidavits in divorce cases. They didn't ask for the legislature's blessing.

    The courts can also define their own duties, and put themselves outside the public's reach. For example, anything to do with court administration falls under the state's Freedom of Information law and must be made public. But anything that is adjudicative - concerning judges' decision-making - is exempt from the FOI law. The Supreme Court recently decided that computerized court logs on pending criminal and motor vehicle cases - including names and court dates - fall into the latter category and are not public records. That's an absurd redefinition of a record-keeping duty that has nothing to do with rendering a decision.

    The judiciary's so-called watchdog is actually a toothless lapdog that operates in secrecy. The Judicial Review Council was created by constitutional amendment to discipline judges, and it does include three lawyers and six laymen in addition to three judges. But The Courant reported in 1999 that in 17 years of operation, it had not removed a single judge from office; it had heard only six cases in public. In all those years, only 17 cases resulted in private reprimands; 826 were thrown out. In 2000, all 91 judicial misconduct complaints were dismissed.

    The council is now investigating the wrongdoing of Justice William J. Sullivan - the one who refused to testify before the legislature's Judiciary Committee. He was caught withholding a Supreme Court ruling from publication in March because he thought it might hurt the chances of a colleague to be chosen as his successor as chief justice. Will this be another mock trial?

    To its credit, the judiciary has appointed a panel of judges, lawyers and laymen to look into court opacity. The governor appointed a similar panel. They'll find that the extraordinary, unchecked powers the robed fellowship has given itself are causing the very imbalances the Constitution's separation of powers clause meant to counteract.

    The solution lies in making the judiciary subject to independent scrutiny.

    The Sound of Silence

    When I brought up crimes of Yale University, Smith Kline Beecham, Baxter, and others I was banned from the Official Connecticut MySpace forum.

    Yale University and the above mentioned Pharmaceutical Companies have something very big to hide.

    I put the names, Kathleen Dickson and Lisa Masterson in a post on www.freespeech.com, and then the site went down and it hasn’t been back up since. Both connected the dots on a major fraud being perpetrated.

    Lisa is in the UK, and Kathleen is in the USA.

    Both after making valid, credible complaints against Yale and members of Big Pharma, had their kids taken away and were thrown in mental hospitals to silence them.

    The corporate media doesn’t want to report corporate crimes if the crimes are committed by their own IN CROWD.

    I googled Lisa Masterson and Kathleen Dickson, both names, not inside quotes and this is the # 3 post

    August 29, 2006, a fax sent and text posted on www.freespeech.com

    Subject: “No Niggers or Spics Allowed.” is that what an un-welcome sign into Connecticut should read if actual unofficial policies were exposed?

    To whom it may concern in Official Connecticut:

    Does Ms. Rell have knowledge of the racist, get rid of non-whites and “White Trash” out of Connecticut allegedly hatched by former Governor John G. Rowland and former Connecticut State Police Commissioner Arthur L. Spada with executive order #2?

    Are Connecticut Officials that are given information about felonies committed by other officials guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and racketeering?

    Would you want it known that Federal Taxpayers might be defrauded to the tune of millions in lost tax revenue and in dollars illegally used to retaliate against whistleblowers within and outside the system that try to expose official, corrupt criminals in Connecticut? Is CT Chief Justice William J. Sullivan the major conspirator/leader?

    Should a State’s Governor and other officials do nothing when there is a massive scandal of retaliating against those that complain about Connecticut officials?

    Should Connecticut have goon squads sent out to maliciously investigate and frame citizens that wish to sue for civil right violations in Connecticut, get mouthy to news reporters, that legitimately complain to elected officials, and that propose laws to elected officials asking for officials to be accountable, act legally, and act in the public’s best interest? Citizens are being ruined and imprisoned, it is a massive loss to all America.

    When is there going to be more than pretend “We Care” and “We’ll Be Honest and Act in the Public’s Best Interest” schemes in Connecticut?

    I, Steven G. Erickson, and others should be subpoenaed in and there should be a special prosecutor and grand jury formed to prosecute those in Connecticut that have committed crimes against humanity, that have violated civil rights, and that have broken the law. If Kristine Blake, Kathleen Dickson, Donald Christmas, Christopher Kennedy, former Attorney Jim Brewer, Writer Andrew Thibeault, Philip Inkel, Jeffrey Yeaw, and others were called to testify a whole conspiracy to rob the American people and obstruct justice would be unveiled. You jokers have gotten away with too much for far too long.

    All branches of Connecticut Government, all departments, all courts, and all police departments should be shut down in Connecticut until they are operated in an honest and American way. It is my believe there is contract rigging, website hacking, covert operations, and covert retaliations going on out of the Department of Administrative Services, DAS. Please see that citizens and whistleblowers aren’t covertly thrown in mental hospitals by complicit doctors. Connecticut criminal officials need to be investigated and punished, Now! Connecticut’s political prisoners need to be freed!

    Worthless Creeps
    On West Hartford School Board
    Belong In Totalitarian Regime


    Police Report Shows
    Administration Inept,
    Cop Interfering With Citizen Oversight

    EDITOR'S NOTE: This column is available for reprint courtesy of The Cool Justice Report, http://cooljustice.blogspot.com

    It would have been nice, this Fourth of July, if someone in West Hartford stood up for freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and other parts of the Constitution that were once important to Americans.

    Sadly, this was not the case.

    Instead, West Hartford, Connecticut, will be known far and wide for engineering the false arrest and unconscionable suspension of a student. The student's crime: videotaping a police officer he believed was breaking the law.

    This textbook case of false arrest belongs in a textbook. I don't mean the crappy kind of textbooks the school board, the state and publishers force down the throats of faculty and students. Rather, this case should be studied along with books like James Loewen's "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong;" and Howard Zinn's "People's History of the United States." Books like these show the reality of what befell West Hartford's Frankie Acevedo: Extra-Constitutional power is wielded by the cop on the beat, the school official, the boss. They can get away with stepping on the Constitution more often than not.

    On June 15, Acevedo, then a senior at Conard High School, saw Officer James Parizo apprehending another student who was suspected of releasing scores of crickets in the cafeteria as a senior prank. West Hartford, you see, has criminalized student pranks. Students at the other high school in town, Hall, were arrested for trying to carve their graduation year into the grass.

    Acevedo believed Parizo was roughing up the other student, and he said so.

    "I have every right to record the police using force and it seemed like he was going to beat him up," Acevedo said in a court affidavit.

    Acevedo is absolutely right. He didn't do anything that was not allowed, and what he did was constitutionally protected. His arrest was so outrageous the town should be groveling in shame. But, it is not. The issue boils down to leadership and competence, two qualities lacked by those who wield power on the scene.

    An assistant principal at Conard - Irene Zytka - saw Acevedo filming the incident.

    "I told him to put the camera away as several students were gathering around us," Zytka said, according to Parizo's report.

    Assuming that Zytka was thinking, I wonder what she was thinking. I guess she was embarrassed. She should be. Instead of supporting the rights of citizens and investigating whether excessive force was used, Zytka demanded that Acevedo go to the office. There, Acevedo submitted to Parizo's request for the camera and memory card. Acevedo cautioned the officer, however, not to erase anything.

    In a legitimate school system, Acevedo would have been recognized for good citizenship. However, for his attention to civil rights and yelling at the bumbling Zytka, Acevedo was charged with breach of peace and interfering with an officer.

    Neither charge is legitimate. An honest wording of such a charge would be: "Pissing off the vice principal." In West Hartford, we now know this is considered a criminal act.

    Zytka deserved to be yelled at. Her performance engendered no reason for respect. She should be arrested - along with the principal, Chuck Landroche, for impersonating educators. They have no claim to moral authority. They have no honor.

    The administration also had the gall to suspend Acevedo for five days, effectively banning him from his own graduation. That bogus action stood until Acevedo's capable lawyer, Jon Schoenhorn of Hartford, went to federal court to strike it down.

    The presence of police in these schools is a shocking admission of failure by administrators to earn their pay by performing basic services: teaching and discipline.

    Where does the West Hartford Board of Education stand on this matter?

    "I am a serious supporter of civil liberties in general and of student rights in particular, and so this case did cause me concern," board member Terry Schmitt wrote to a constituent, echoing the lame and irresponsible positions of other board members. "However, as is so often the case, the situation is much more complex than was made apparent in the [Hartford Courant] newspaper.

    Really? This guy is a serious supporter of civil liberties and student rights? Maybe in another country…And, ah, it was so complex. Acevedo, a witness to what he believed was excessive force, yelled at a vice principal whose performance failed to meet minimum standards of Civics 101. There is nothing of substance in the police report. West Hartford taxpayers should get a refund equal to the pay of anyone who came near this case.

    Lesson learned: Police are not here to serve and protect. They are here to arrest because of the failure of phony educators to uphold elementary standards in a constitutional republic.

    Acevedo also learned first-hand about the abuse of power by petty thugs, something that will serve him well as he goes on to college and the so-called real world.

    What kind of community tolerates such anti-democratic behavior by its public servants?
