The Judicial Accountability Initiative Law, J.A.I.L., is a single-issue national grassroots organization designed to end the rampant and pervasive judicial corruption in the legal system of the United States. J.A.I.L. recognizes this can be achieved only through making the Judicial Branch of government answerable and accountable to an entity other than itself. At this time it isn't, resulting in the judiciary's arbitrary abuse of the doctrine of judicial immunity, leaving the People without recourse when their inherent rights are violated by judges.
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."
The Chicago Office of Professional Standards is an example of what happens when a government entity is answerable only to itself. This agency, which is responsible for disciplining police officers was not effective when the head of its office reported to the police superintendent. So this was changed. The office head now reports to the mayor and the agency has been given new subpoena powers. The current system of disciplining judges, a system that is also answerable only to itself, is in a similar state of ineffectiveness.
Soon after the founding of our Republic the Founding Fathers realized there was insufficient check on the Judicial Branch of government:
"The constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please. It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also; in theory only, at first, while the spirit of the people is up, but in practice, as fast as that relaxes. Independence can be trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. They are inherently independent of all but moral law."
The granting of such power to these Special Grand Juries can only be accomplished through amendment to the Constitutions of each state. Since there is a need for these juries on the federal level there is also a provision for a federal J.A.I.L. Bill. Since there are powerful vested interests in the status quo, and because it is human nature for men always to seek more power and against it to surrender any of it, passage of more than ineffectual cosmetic reform will require the initiative process.
J.A.I.L. is intended to prevent the following acts of judicial malfeasance:
Once passed, the unconstitutional doctrine of Judicial Immunity applied unconditionally will no longer shield a judge guilty of any such misconduct.
Some examples of the above misconduct J.A.I.L. addresses are ignored laws, ignored evidence, eminent domain abuse, confiscation of property without due process, probate fraud, secret dockets, falsifications of court records, misapplication of law, and other abuses. When passed decisions in family court will be governed by law rather than the vested interests of the state. The unconstitutional doctrine of Judicial Immunity applied unconditionally will be eliminated by instituting a fair and effective means for its removal in cases that merit it.
Attorney Richard Fine was in for jail for fifteen months beginning March 4, 2009 because of his discovery of illegal payoffs by the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors to Los Angeles County Superior Court Judges as annual salary bonuses. These payoffs began in the late 1980's. Because of Richard Fine a hurried attempt to make these payments retroactively legal was made with the passage of California Senate Bill SBx2-11. Had J.A.I.L. been in effect since the beginning of this payoff scandal, those affected by decisions tainted by these payoffs would have had a Special Grand Jury of twenty-five independent citizens. who represent the people in mass, to present their case before after all appeals for justice had been exhausted. What is more, a criminal affidavit satisfying the Fourth Amendment, could be written up against all L. A. County judges and presented to the prosecutor, giving him 120 days to begin prosecution. Upon failure to do so, this affidavit could then be presented to this Special Grand Jury for an indictment of all L. A. County Judges, and a prosecution begun by the Special Prosecutor provided for within the measure. Upon conviction, a trial jury, not a judge, would determine the criminal sentencing for each and every judge convicted. The passage of J.A.I.L. will provide a positive means of justice for Richard Fine and for every other judicial victim for past and present judicial transgressions. It will make impossible the corruptive influences purchased by Los Angeles Board of Supervisors from the L. A. County Superior Court judges.
"He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries."
Dr. Les Sachs, a writer, journalist, and published expert on American corruption now living abroad, wrote in his article Portrait of America's Legal System:
"The reality is that the United States of America, which proclaims itself the 'land of freedom,' has the most dishonest, dangerous and crooked legal system of any developed nation. Legal corruption is covering America like a blanket."
As time passes these problems will only grow worse manifesting all the more the need for the passage of J.A.I.L.
"JAIL4Judges is the best hope of a practical program for restoring justice in the USA."
With passage of J.A.I.L., the People will finally be assured of receiving Due Process of Law in all court proceedings which will include the requirement that judges:
There will be no more arbitrary decision-making by judges.
This Due Process of Law will provide the People Redress of Grievances against their government in an open, honest and complete manner without any appearance of impropriety. The People's unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness, which include but are not limited to:
will no longer be "alienated" by government.
The Bill of Rights will be enforced for each individual, providing "Liberty and Justice for All."
J.A.I.L. is the People, providing the means by which they can carry out their right and duty to restore the rightful station of government by holding the judiciary, as the intended guardian of their rights against arbitrary power, accountable to the People under constitutional law.
