‘Good Ole' Boy' system of corruption
The judges of this world are, for the most part, part of a corrupt system. Sometimes, when you're a good lawyer, and you fight for the poor, in order to reward you and get you “out of the way,” they'll make you a judge. When you play the game of depriving people of justice, you get a reward in this world: You get “moved up.”
In a Chicago Tribune article dated Monday, January 11, 1999, titled “The Flipside of a Fair Trial,” it tells the story of a man on his first day as a prosecutor assigned to a trial courtroom at the Criminal Courts Building in Chicago, Illinois:
“… Michael Goggin slid into the chair next to the judge's chambers and his shoes struck a most unusual object—a bathroom scale.
“‘What's this?' Goggin recalls asking another prosecutor.
“‘That's for the Two-Ton Contest,' came the response.
“‘The Two-Ton Contest?' Goggin replied, quizzically.
“More than two decades later, as Goggin, now a defense lawyer, recalls the moment, his original amazement is still apparent.
“There was an ongoing competition among prosecutors to be the first to convict defendants whose weight totaled 4,000 pounds. Men and women, upon conviction, were marched into the room and weighed.
“Because most of the defendants were African-American, Goggin recalls now, with no small degree of discomfort, the competition was described in less sensitive terms behind closed doors—‘N_____s by the Pound.'”
This is just 10 years ago; and some of these prosecutors that were gathering “n_____s by the pound” are now judges.
And as we know, there are cases where some Black brothers who were arrested on automobile violations, or running a stoplight, went to jail alive—but died there. Where is their justice?
When these murders are committed by law enforcement, there is no justice for the victims because the judge and the juries are part of the same “Good Ole' Boy” system where “the right thing” has always been to “let the murderer go,” therefore, justice is denied. The Fraternal Order of Police, state's attorneys, prosecutors and attorney generals are all a part of the same system!
“Well, what are you advocating, Farrakhan? Revolution?” I'm advocating justice, but revolution is already taking place.
Special prosecutor Mark Piepmeier gave the grand jury questionable instructions on what evidence to consider and played more defense attorney than a prosecutor seeking an indictment. Special prosecutor Mark Piepmeier also told the public that Ronald Ritchie, who is 24 and white, was being a "good citizen" when he lied to 911 dispatchers about Crawford's movements and actions in the Beavercreek, Ohio Wal-Mart the day he was hunted and shot down by Officer Sean Williams.
