The Undermining of Justice-End Legal Immunity Now... (ongoing)

This being a blog, I hereby declare my liberty to revise entries as I see fit.  To add, to correct, to subtract, etc, since the time I can spend on this is limited.

I wonder how many Americans know that even though their state legislators voted to enact laws with regard to statutes of limitations, prosecutors regularly ignore them.  When people think of statutes of limitations, I bet, that like me, they usually think of limits on when the government can take action to prosecute a crime.  In this case I am thinking of cases being closed prematurely.  Do they think about the voters who elected the legislators who wrote and passed the laws?   No.  What do you think they think of?   Themselves most likely.

Judicial economy.  Ever hear of that?  The truth is often sacrificed for the sake of it.  Whose fault is that?  It is a complex issue which would probably require a case by case analysis.  I wonder how many studies have been done on disgruntled litigants which include a look at the evidence they had that never made it to court and why?

Perjury is accepted now, or ignored.   People's lives are ruined by perjury and do lawyers care?  No.  Why?  Because they are concerned about their comfort, their ability to get through their days with the people they see much more than their clients.   Most are under-prepared, jamming in as many cases as the court schedule allows, if they can, half-assing it when they can.  Lying when they can get away with it.  Not all of them I am sure.  They, as a whole, have learned to ignore the huge impact some seemingly little lies can have on another person's life.  They have rationalized away a high ethical standard.  "It's just another case."

Prosecutors have more control over police departments than they should.  They actually mislead officers into not taking reports on certain kinds of crime or investigating certain individuals.   When did our legislators given them permission to disregard the rights of citizens?

Immunity is a serious problem and no public employee should have immunity for what they do on the job.  Do private citizens have immunity when they screw up?  No.  So do you think the founding fathers meant for their to be an elitist class of government workers?   I don't.  I found a really interesting article on immunity here: "We cannot make police, prosecutors, and judges into honest people. However, we also have to understand that the very immunity that protects these government employees also provides a powerful incentive for fundamentally dishonest people to seek these careers. What other line of work (other than being an elected politician) permits those duly employed to lie, to kill, to kidnap, and to engage in other acts of oppression and bullying with almost no consequences for such behavior?.....That does not happen in the "justice" system. Instead, when someone like Nifong actually does face some small consequences for criminal behavior, we are told that it is "extraordinary." Wow. A prosecutor lies in court, hides evidence, foists a major frame on innocent people, and we are supposed to believe that it is "extraordinary" that he loses his job.
No, we cannot make sociopaths like Michael B. Nifong honest people. However, we can take away their legal immunity and make them vulnerable to the same sanctions that the rest of us face. That would provide a small amount of justice in a system in which the participants no longer care about being just."

Roma Larson lied.   The police in various communities did not do their jobs and so Dean West has been allowed to victimize women from around the nation and even from other countries with no consequences.  I have a favorited video on youtube which highlights a recent argument in Congress over insurance companies labeling victims of domestic violence as having a pre-existing condition.   I am an adult child of domestic violence and have been told, and do believe it, that I have had PTSD since childhood and I agree that it can be a pre-existing condition.  The women Dean West picks are sick, even if they are functioning on one level or another.   When he was beating me repeatedly last November through January 08 - 09, I was working hard around the "foundation" house, patching cement, hauling out dirt from construction, cleaning up the back yard that was littered with debris, painting, mixing the cement that held the fire-safe in, caulking around the new flooring, etc, etc.   Even though I was sore all over sometimes from the physical abuse.  The night I mixed 3 large paint containers of cement he hurt me, hitting me in the head, with his hand and foot, pulling out my hair, and I went on to continue to mix cement.   Now, would you say I am sick for taking that?   But Dean West was the perpetrator of the violence, for no good reason.   I busted my ass and waited on him hand and foot, even carrying his urine in a glass so he would not have to get up to pee once he was fed and started his evening drinking.   Knowing what I know, seeing what I have seen, I would like to know why the government should tell the insurance companies in those states that the actuary tables they rely on are wrong.   My view, as a victim, is that the DV movement/community has become an industry and the victims, as individuals, still do not have a voice for the powers that Mr. Anderson is talking about in "For Justice, End Legal Immunity" have brought the DV community on board with them, and I have seen first hand DV advocates rubber stamping bad decisions by prosecutors and attorneys, illegal decisions as well.   I am doing here on this blog and through the youtube what the DV community in Springfield won't do, because they are in the hip-pocket of the court and the prosecutor, and that is calling it like it is.   The DV prosecutor lied.  The police didn't do a complete investigation.   I had a great life in Orwell before I allowed Dean West to pollute it.   And the Springfield police and Roma Larson did not care.   They did not care what their actions would do to me as a human being.

As Mr. Anderson pointed out, there are people attracted to those positions because they won't be accountable for their actions.  I have written about it before.   The Ashtabula prosecutor lied to me too, until I told him point blank I knew what the statute said.  He answered that I didn't have to tell him what the statute said, he was a prosecutor and I thought, "Well, then why did you try to tell me the opposite?"   Wouldn't it be better to have real justice and objective truth as our goals rather than standards of success for prosecutors being numbers of cases won?   Who thought that up as a measure for success anyway?   I heard a reporter say tonight, on a national news show, that something was true because it was part of a court record.   I laughed to myself and thought about who taught that man that idea?   Who?   A journalist who believes that a court record is a reliable source.   I know he isn't alone.   I read on WomenInCrimeInk that our system of justice is perceived as open.  I agree with Mr. Anderson that it is not and said so, for they graciously allow comments on their blog entries. 

I found out about this case today, 12/23 and it is more support that it is time for a real examination of our elitist courts, from BEHIND THE BLUE WALL 
 


Some men, like the one who beat me in the photos on the youtube videos featured in the left column of the blog, are serial abusers.   I believe that Dean West became a serial abuser when he was traveling around the country as a hobo.  He had abused his first young wife in Washington State and that marriage ended quickly.   It certainly has been his pattern since before he was convicted of a dealt down charge in North Star Borough in Alaska, where it was also alleged that he did something to a woman while working for Pinkerton and they fired him for it.  His "moving on" after the charges were filed then resulted in his marriage to his second wife.  They later moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and then to Lincoln, Illinois where I know police reports regarding him exist.  No charges though, unfortunately, for his next string of victims.  Instead of acting obsessed over the woman, Dean West just moves right on in true serial abuser fashion.  He was already cheating on the second wife.  It is his pattern to have a back-up woman in place.  After police reports were made against him in South Lake Tahoe by the New Jersey victim whose RO he violated, for which there is a warrant for his arrest out of Paterson, New Jersey, he immediately moved on to Washington State, where he was forced to leave by the woman's family members, and then on to Sioux Falls, South Dakota where there was a CSPO issued against him and where, to the best of my knowledge, there are warrants out for his arrest also.   Then it was up and on and eventually he landed in Springfield, where he lived in the RV he allegedly blackmailed the Sioux Falls victim out of, parking on a church grounds and then  the yard  of a couple he met at the St. John's breadline.  He was introduced to the third/fifth wife, who he proceeded to extract THOUSANDS of dollars from.  His courting began, I now know, as a plan to escape that situation, for, as the women told me later that she was on to him, it impacted the relationship.   However, she continued to bail him out of trouble, even when he had conned a couple into signing over their house to become lifetime "directors" of the foundation.  She had no idea he had asked me to marry him and I had no idea he was still her "boyfriend."   There are police reports that bear this out in Springfield, Illinois and Leland Grove, Illinois.   I have debated with myself over whether to post them on my google docs.   I wish I had run for the hills when the New Jersey and South Dakota victims came out and told me about their experiences.  But, they were involved in a sub-culture online which consisted of "flamers."  Abusive nasty internet addicts and the line became blurred as to who were the good guys and who was the bad guy.  He had been EXTREMELY nice to me on the phone for months before the big melt down on my MSN political discussion board, nicer than anyone had ever been to me verbally my entire life.  I know now that can be part of the pattern of a sociopath/psychopath, and I know it wasn't real.    I bought into the argument that the New Jersey victim and the South Dakota victim had been cheating on their husbands and that they had to lie to be able to keep those marriages intact.   He told me a story about the woman coming over from Holland which I no longer believe, especially after talking to one of the Jehovah's Witnesses who helped her get back home.   Again, no police, no charges, no accountability... 

(QUALIFICATION: The people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid for the incorporation of The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss this.  This is MY life, and I am a witness to crimes no one seems to want to do anything about. I have over 2 inches of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors here have been reported to the Attorney General's office in Illinois as well as the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, and are part of various court records.  It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors.  He is on probation right now for resisting a peace officer and I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and to the best of my knowledge there is a warrant out of South Dakota right now also.  Any questions? Feel free to e-mail me at robindwest@gmail.com or call me at 440-285-2648. Google "Kathleen Callahan and Ambien" for links with information showing Kathleen Callahan is a public figure.  My friend Janet Makinen was involved in that suit as well and you can see her involvement if you google her name with Ambien.)
