arrogance and abuse of power / AMERICAN REVOLUTION 2
It is fear many people have. Being falsely accused of a crime is terrifying, especially if the prosecutor says they think you committed the crime, and will not drop charges against you. After all, how do you prove something you did not do? In television and movies the protagonist is always vindicated, but this is real life after all. According to Ohio State University, as many, as 10, 000 people are wrongly convicted each year in our justice system. Just how could this happen? Further more, how could it happen to me, Louis Gibson, a retired United States Marine? Now confined to a wheelchair with multiple injuries sustain while serving in the United States Marine Corp..In this and countless other ways, I have seen the American legal system “up close and personal.”
Perhaps the most disturbing qualities about those representing the legal system are their arrogance and abuse of power, and their lack of empathy and innate legal and life skills to deal with vital human issues that come before them. For example, lawyers who are prosecutors are often less interested in fairness and justice than they are in winning at all costs, and exercising their raw power and hurting others in the process—such as those who are innocent but are convicted anyway.
False accusations can happen for a variety of reasons. One is the reliance some investigators place on witnesses. Contrary to popular belief, some witness testimony is extremely unreliable. Especially when in my case it involves two former sales representatives. Both worked for my company, Redshield Entertainment, located in Norcross, Georgia, now closed due to this situation. Norcross Police Officer Eric Butynski badge number 122, who I have had several personal verbal arguments with since I established Redshield Entertainment in Norcross, Georgia was not my Christmas list. Even less liked when his unlawful investigation on December 22, 2009 led to a warrant charging me with False Report of a Crime.(warrant number 09w-19949) In addition, they all, filled in information they did not know conjuring up coherent dialogue. Officer Butynski pass the malicious report as legitimate.
Can our legal system be fixed, and will the American people come to trust and respect police officers, lawyers and judges again, and believe that justice not only exists but prevails in this great nation? Maybe . . . if the profession is restructured, and if it attracts those people who believe that the law is sacred, sacrosanct and pristine—truly a shining city upon a hill—and they put such principles into practice. The profession does not require saints, but it does need something different than “Law West of the Pecos by Judge Roy Bean.” And it needs people who are different than it has been attracting: who are often driven, ruthless, unprincipled, money-hungry, and power-hungry.
