Supreme Court Failure

What’s More Compromising Than Money?
The New York Times - EDITORIAL - April 28, 2010

The Supreme Court abdicated its responsibility to address fundamental questions of ethics and fairness when it declined to review the case of Charles Dean Hood, an inmate on death row in Texas. The one-line order, issued without comment from any of the justices, left in place an egregiously tainted 1990 double-murder conviction. Eighteen years after Mr. Hood was sentenced to death, the state trial judge, Verla Sue Holland, and Tom O’Connell, then the Collin County district attorney, admitted that they had had a secret affair that appears to have ended not long before the trial. After considering these seamy circumstances, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals last year denied Mr. Hood’s request for a new trial, ruling — incredibly — that he took too long to raise the conflict of interest and should be executed. Yet it took a court-issued subpoena to get the two officials to confirm their long-rumored affair. Their success in hiding their relationship should not count against Mr. Hood. In a separate appeal, Mr. Hood was granted a new punishment trial on grounds that jurors were not allowed to properly consider mitigating evidence that might have persuaded them that he didn’t deserve a death sentence. The ruling made no mention of their entanglement. That trial is pending. Judge Holland’s failure to recuse herself violates the most basic, and obvious, principles of judicial ethics and due process. The Supreme Court should have grabbed the case to say so and order a new trial for Mr. Hood. That was the course urged by 21 former judges and prosecutors and 30 experts on legal ethics who supported Mr. Hood’s petition to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court correctly ruled last year that millions of dollars in campaign spending on behalf of a judge’s election bid created an intolerable “probability of actual bias.” The court decided that Chief Justice Brent Benjamin, of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, was required to recuse himself from a case involving Massey Energy, one of the country’s biggest coal companies, after Massey’s chief executive spent $3 million to help get Justice Benjamin elected. The right to a fair hearing, before an impartial judge, is at the heart of the nation’s judicial system. If money raises a serious question about that impartiality, love seems to be at least as worrisome. The Supreme Court, sadly, failed in its duty to clearly draw that line.

This story says a lot: the law be damned, it's about power, money and, of course, sex.

let us see in the 8th
- you are not allowed to pick the jury and the jury is lied to
-you are not allowed witnesses
-you are not allowed experts
- you are not allowed to tell the truth & when a mistrial is noted in the testimony, you are not allowed a mis trial
- you are not allowed to see your own legal file because they have altered your information
- you are not allowed an appeal

when they can not put you in prison with their witch hunts they just cancel your medical insurance......

you see some psychotics have to make the judges & the FEDS believe their fake stories......

so NY Stalkers just call up peoples lawyers and tell fake stories
call up their doctors and tell fake stories
call up the judges in your town and tell fake stories
make fake calls to the town, sheriffs and DA
call up their insurance companies and tell fake stories

pass around fake psych paperwork
just drop it off on a lawyers desk use the legal secretary or a cop to do it, as if it is official!

Ok, it's all corrupt, let's just assume that as a fact, from top to bottom. Now what? A coup de coup is necessary.

Saint Andrew, Patron Saint of Crooked Lawyers and Judges, praises the Supreme Court for its admirable concern with the reputations of the like of his lawyer and judge beneficiaries and for not cowering before the ordinary rabble's idea of true justice. Let them pray to their God, while my beneficiaries can buy their indulgences from my Master through their generous gifts to my treasury. Their God or my Master, who has the power?

Saint Andrew, Patron Saint of Crooked Lawyers and Judges, says in relation to Espada's tithing. Espada did not deceive Saint Andrew with token payments. Neither Saint Andrew, nor his Master is mocked and your gifts are weighed against your benefits.
