Courages Judges or Judicial Activists?

In Podcast Episode 076 of the Criminal Nuggets Podcast, for once, we look at what the judges did!

Will these judges get quickly shut down or have they started something?

I'm definitely looking for feedback on this one. Tell me what you think in the comments.

You have to have an opinion on this case. Click Below and Listen to the 11 minute podcast then tell me what you think?

The growing conversation about the crucial need to fix the serious problems in all phases of our Criminal Justice System needs to grow larger and louder now!  How will you join the conversation?!  

In an article by +Gary Younge  the brilliant New York correspondent for +The Guardian  newspaper, Gary informs us, "The Guardian has, through its new investigative project The Counted, developed the capacity to count the number of people killed by the police." he goes on to say that all lives matter, and the failure of U.S. governmental authorities “to keep track of how many people its police kill” detracts from their humanity.

In agreement with this opinion, and the loss of accountability that it entails, I responded to Gary’s post as follows:

About this community

With five percent of the world's population, yet 25 percent of the world's prisoners, the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. With 2.2 million people currently in U.S. prisons and jails, our prison population has increased over 700% since 1970, a testament that our criminal justice system has failed on every front, underscoring the need for large scale reform. This community is a forum to learn, share and discuss anything at all relating to criminal justice, the prison industrial complex, human rights and the need for change.

I am the Husband of an incarcerated woman. My Wife has been in prison for 10 months now. It has been a nightmare, but also very eye opening on how the "system" really works. My Wife sends me her journal for which I blog with (yes, she wants to get the word out). These are her real words. Sometimes it's very interesting, sometimes it's just too much. The whole situation has taken a toll on us and our 2 kids. But, we keep going, because that's what we do. #prisonfamily   #cdcr

Days 128-130 in a CA Women's Prison. Classification. It's so hard not to lose hope. No contact with family, fights, boredom. This is a nightmare, but you don't wake up. It's all very real. #massincarceration   #prisonreform  
The nice weather ended, back to fog again. I officially hate the weather here (Chowchilla, CA). Another fog day, no programming for us today. No ducketts either, another boring day inside, Boredom is definitely one of the har...

Throw back Thursday!  In 1872, Charlotte E. Ray was the first African American female attorney admitted to practice law. She was admitted to the Washington, D.C. bar. When she applied for admission, she used the name C.E. Ray, and the admissions committee thought the application was for a male.

Exposing neglect to report Fraud on the Federal Court by Court Officials On December 15, 2014, the Government Accountability Office made a referral on the wrong doing of an illegal payment by the United States Treasury to pay a former Federal District Court Judge named Patricia J. Boyle to commit the crime of Fraud on the Federal District Court Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division in Detroit, Michigan. The referral was made to the Inspector General Investigations Division United States Department of Justice. This illegal payment of the United States Treasury cause contamination in the National Archives and Records Administration in Chicago, Illinois in the Archivist is too far away from the legal requirement of accurate records keeping in being unable truthfully to place a seal to authenticate a lying Federal Docket Card 82-71077-DT concealment of the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle. This illegal payment of the United States Treasury is an abuse of and waste of Taxpayer dollars: No court official in the Federal District Court in Detroit, Michigan reported the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle. This neglect to report the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle on the illegal payment by the United States Treasury cause Patricia J. Boyle to file a Fraudulent Tax Return with the Internal Revenue Service. On February 14, 1992, I, LuQman Abdurrahman, filed an Affidavit and Court Documents in the Michigan Supreme Court proving the Fraud Patricia J. Boyle committed in the Federal District Court. While Patricia J. Boyle was an Associate Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, she, Patricia J. Boyle, did not contest this evidence proving the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle committed in the Federal District Court. LuQman Abdurrahman has validated an Attorney Discipline Board Judgment on the Embezzlement of Attorney Donald L. Correll, who stole the Federal Removal Petition filed before Patricia J. Boyle, and stole the Documents proving the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle. This neglect of the above Court Officials to report the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle is and of itself apart of the conspiracy to prevent termination of the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. On February 22, 2015, I, LuQman Abdurrahman, under 28 U.S.C. Section 1746 an Oath under the penalty of perjury FAX the United States Attorney General and filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to uphold: Document to verify that nothing was done about the United States Treasury paying a former Federal Judge named Patricia J. Boyle  to commit Fraud on  the Federal District Court in Detroit, Michigan.

Contempt of Court Maximum Penalty

Like any other crime, it is important to know the maximum penalty for contempt of court. Problem is this crime is not in the books. It is a judicial thing. 

So we have to read the cases carefully to try to get a handle on things.

What is the criminal contempt of court maximum penalty? Contempt of court is not in the books so we have to look at the case law for the answer. The more

LET'S CUT OUR PRISON POPULATION IN HALF

Join actor Michael K. Williams, ACLU's ambassador for ending mass incarceration, and support our campaign.

For the last four decades, this country has relentlessly expanded our criminal justice system, needlessly throwing away too many lives and trillions of taxpayer dollars.

Our nation’s addiction to incarceration is unsustainable, ineffective, and inhumane.

We need better solutions to the problems our nation faces — mass incarceration is not the answer. We don’t have to put up with an unproductive, wasteful criminal justice system that is dominated by racial disparities.

It’s time to end the failed war on drugs, abolish mandatory minimum laws, and reduce extreme sentencing for petty crimes. Let’s not build any more expensive prisons — instead, let’s invest in strategies that actually make communities safer.

We’re at a critical moment in this country, and together, we have the chance to do better — will you pledge to be a part of the solution?

Please help by following this link and signing our petition:
