Oct 3, 2020 UPDATE: The letter requesting that the VP candidates pledge to help stop the corruption problems in U.S. courts was mailed today. The mailing, including the messages to the candidates from the public, may be read HERE. Thank you to all who helped with this endeavor!
This is a collaborative effort to combat unchecked U.S. legal system abuse facilitated if not perpetrated by officers of the court, including but not necessarily limited to law enforcement personnel, court clerks, court administrators, attorneys, and judges.
The following letter is to be sent to the two major-party U.S. Vice Presidential candidates on October 2, 2020. If you wish to have your name and/or organization added as a co-signatory of the letter, follow the directions provided below.
WHO WE ARE
We and our associates are good government advocates focused on the U.S. legal system. We come from all walks of life, educational backgrounds, political affiliations, races, genders, religions, and types of employment – including officers of the court.
We have knowledge of courts, professional disciplinary agencies, district attorneys, attorney generals, and legislators turning blind eyes to citizens reporting unethical if not criminal violations of U.S. law in legal proceedings, as well as other acts of public corruption.
Inadequate and otherwise improper oversight of court officers is wide-spread and a root of injustice and unrest in the United States. We know that this lack of appropriate accountability is creating environments that threaten the rights and safety of good government employees and all marginalized people.
WE BELIEVE THE SOLUTION ULTIMATELY RESTS WITH THE LEADERSHIP OF THE UNITED STATES
Thus, the reason we are petitioning for the honorable candidates for Vice President of the United States to answer the following question:
If elected Vice President of the United States, what will you do to encourage vigorous prosecutions of U.S. court officers who deliberately violate rights of individuals through knowing abuse of legal proceedings?
