Public Accountability: Public servants are NOT exempt!!

Injustice everywhere can be brought to the fore, but everywhere the media does not report, the Internet will! But we must *ACT*


Actions that match words are what count! Words are meaningless when they are just lip service. People are so sick of police brutality, corruption, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct going on unchecked.

There are more and more people in the US and around the world who are demaning accountability from those public servants! They seem to have forgotten that THEY work for US!

Also see Jail 4 Judges,

In a government by the People and for the People, it is to the People that accountability must be enforced. With the passage of J.A.I.L., accountability to the People will be achieved by Special Grand Juries dedicated to this purpose. These People, who are not officers of any other Branch of government or members of the Bar, will be publicly drawn by lottery for limited terms. Complaints will come before them only after every other legal remedy has been attempted. They shall have the power to strip judges of their protection of judicial immunity who are the subject of civil complaints, and to investigate, indict, and initiate criminal prosecution of wayward judges.

That seems like a great idea to me!

"The constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please. It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also; in theory only, at first, while the spirit of the people is up, but in practice, as fast as that relaxes. Independence can be trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. They are inherently independent of all but moral law."
