The point is not whether Perry is guilty or innocent. The point is it really does not matter because the system is so corrupt you can never really be sure and there are corrupt motives involved that are political to begin with even indicting him. This is the pot calling the kettle black. Even if Perry is guilty, this is the abuse of Prosecutorial discretion which is the very same abuse but no prosecutor can be so charged because the Supreme Court gave them ABSOLUTE immunity to do as they like. The people in Ferguson can protest and demand criminal charges be brought against the policeman, but politicians are powerless – that is solely the discretion of a prosecutor who works hand-in-hand with the police. That is the entire problem.
Shakespeare’s famous quote about the first thing we do is kill all the lawyers is not actually about lawyers. You have to understand the context. Private individuals were not allowed to have lawyers in those days – only the king. It was not until the American Revolution that the Constitution gave you a right to counsel, which the Supreme Court has effectively taken away giving you court appointed counsel working for the court who have achieved a near perfect conviction rate 99%. Court appointed lawyers are a joke to put it mildly. They are paid $90 and hour generally compared to $600-$1,000 for private lawyers.
DICK: The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.
Cade: Nay, that I mean to do.
Henry The Sixth, Part 2 Act 4, scene 2, 71–78
Therefore, Shakespeare’s phase had nothing to do with killing general lawyers, it was the king’s PROSECUTORS who were corrupt. Jake Cade led the second Tax Revolt in England after the Black Death and the king’s “lawyers” (prosecutors) were the ones aggressively seizing homes and prosecuting people wrongly at that time. Hence, history repeats and all the Constitutional precautions have been eliminated by the Supreme Court..
The purpose of the Grand Jury was to eliminate corruption where by ONLY the people could indict not the government in the spirit of a real democratic movement. That too, like your right to vote on specific issues, has been eliminated. But then the Supreme Court held a prosecutor has NO DUTY to present the very evidence that demonstrates he is wrong or corrupt and that the person he is indicting is not to cover up for someone else – a friend i.e. bankers.
This destroyed the very purpose of a Grand Jury and has reverted everything back to a dictatorship. The Supreme Court reasoning was explained that it was still fair because you have the court jury (petit jury) where you get to put on your defense. Yet the role of the judge is to decide even there what evidence can even be shown to the jury. However, if prosecutors can freeze all your assets on false statements they even know are wrong and deny you a right to counsel, that is returning the entire system right back to the very corruption against which we had a revolution.
Here is just a small portion of the text of the Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson. Just these few complaints illustrates the point – we have been here before and done that.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
History repeats because the passions of mankind never change. Those in power always want more. They will always act to relieve themselves of any duty to the people and it is always about furthering only their own self-interest. Converting civil police into military combat units is quartering troops among us. Mock trials have returned and there is absolutely no possible way to obtain a fair trial in the United States any more. Their own conviction rate was about 72% during the 1970s. It is now nearly 99%. Government is incapable to managing anything with such perfection. The abuse of the judicial system undermines the rule of law and when that vanishes, so does investment for you can no longer trust the courts to vindicate property ownership.
It is a vicious cycle that repeats time and time again with the rise and fall of Empires, Nations, and City States. We are just not capable of advancing out of this political maze of the centuries.
