  •  Pennsylvania's CRIMINAL JUST US System (2+ / 0-)

    I remember in the mid 1980s when all of those corrupt Philadelphia County Common Pleas "judges" were suspended because they took Roofers' Union bribes to fix cases.

    So many Philadelphia County "judges" were removed from the bench by federal prosecutions that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania had to change the Constitutional Speedy Trial Rights of the accused because there weren't enough "judges" to conduct trials and handle other "court" business.
    (Similar to Operation Greylord in Chicago)

    If all crooked Pennsylvania "judges" had to face mandatory criminal prosecutions and huge prison time for the crimes they perpetrate from the bench, there would be no court system at all.

    That's why they insist on retaining "Self-Policing".

    Cambia County's Joseph O'Kicki openly extorted millions of dollars from litigants for over a decade in the 1980s with total impuntiy.  
    It took the election of a Democratic litenant governor from that area (Mark Singel) before O'Kicki was brought to the bar of justice and made to answer for his criminal misconduct.
    O'Kicki was receiving his pay while suspended (naturally) and out on siganture bail (naturally) when he was convicted on the 1st set of corruption charges and sentenced to 2 to 5 years in state prison.  
    He skipped bail and fled to Slovenia before he was to go on trial for the 2nd set of corruption charges.

    The Judicial Inquiry & Review Board changed its name to the Judicial Conduct Board because of the O'Kicki scandal, but it had no intention of changing its corrupt behavior.

    The Judicial Conduct Board continued its fraudulent "self-policing" in the Kids for Cash scandal involving the bribe-taking Luzerne County "judges" Mark A. Ciavarella, Jr. and Michael T. Conahan.
    Ciavarella was just sentenced to 28 years in federal prison after being convicted by a federal jury, and ringleader Conahan will be sentenced soon for his racketeering federal guilty plea.

    8 people have walked off of Pennsylvania's death row to freedom while 3 have been executed (after voluntarily dropping their appeals) since the state reinstated capital punishment in 1978 for an amazing minimal error rate of 73%.*
    (WRONG in 8 out of 11 death penalty cases indicates serious subversion of the Constitutional Rule of Law by state cops, prosecutors, and "judges", and their paid snitches).
    There is NO Penalty of Perjury for the state and kangaroo kourt officers.
