Protecting Civil Rights: A Leadership Guide for State, Local, and Tribal Law Enforcement

The passage of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (Public Law No: 103-322) enabled the federal government to take action to remedy any pattern or practice of conduct by state and local law enforcement agencies “that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.”

Millions against Monsanto or Crimes against humanity?

The brutal attack on my person with toxic chemicals motivated by the need to acquire my property is in violation of International Crimes against Humanity

5-9-2005 Follow up letter to State Rep. Phil Wise stating outcome of meeting.

Because the city building official refused to address my concerns in regard to the city's nuisance drainage ordinance, I telephoned the State Rep. Philip Wise. Mr Wise called city hall on my behalf and asked that I be put on the council meeting agenda so I could directly question Mark Holland appointed building official. With the agenda being public it is my opinion Holland was absent from that meeting for the purpose of avoiding my questions. Phil Wise did not hesitate to use his political influence as a professional courtesy to his constituent. He retired soon after this began. I have contacted now State Representative Jerry Kearns to speak with him about this ongoing situation. He refuses to speak to me about this subject. He has shown no professional courtesy that Phil Wise did. I resent Jerry Kearns for his disregard of my attack. What reason does he have to pretend that this hasn't happened on his watch? Does he have a conflict of interest? If he does he should acknowledge that to be a fact, not ignore my questions or disregard the serious criminal offenses committed by the local authorities. He represents the people, he should report any unethical behavior of the local government to the proper authorities.
