Our purported above criminalistic averages are directly correlate to the lack of education of poor youths (This writer wound up in foster homes, childrens homes and reform schools because the schools labeled me as mental deficient).
Everyone in this country should go through Legal 101, immediately after they study English 101.
Previously, being abused by corrupt prosecutors who did reverse corruption (refusing to prosecute their friends and associates); this party took up the study of federal insolvency Code/Rule of Law on the Dept of Justice website. This was to fight cronyism and corruption within the federal courts on eToys, Goldman Sachs, Bain, Wells Fargo.
We have come to realize that many an attorney you know failed English and writing classes; but are successful lawyers today. They are not brilliant people; what they did become was well educated persons.
KUDOs to Betty Waters who won her brothers freedom and finally achieved a settlement from the bad faith prosecutors. Surely such is setting a good stage for Jabbar Collins - an American hero who deserves his own movie and will hopefully devote his life to the pursuit of happiness as well as the encouragement of others to learn from his inflexible dedication to justice.
