10-03-29 Human Rights Alert (HRA) - Request for Records

Date: Mon, 29 Mar 2010 14:05:59 -0700
To: "US agencies, law school faculty,  NGOs, media, and others"
From: joseph zernik
Subject: TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE: Human Rights Alert (HRA) - request for Government, Scholarly Journals, NGOs, or Media Reports of Human Rights violations in the US Pertaining to Integrity, or lack thereof, of the justice system, for submission to the United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR).

Dear Friends:

Human Rights Alert (HRA) is a Los Angeles, California, based NGO, dedicated to the cause of generating, reviewing, archiving, and disseminating and/or publicizing credible evidence or Human Rights violations, or rulings by competent panels of jurisdiction regarding Human Rights violations by the US, state, or local governments on the people of the United States.  HRA is particularly focused on documenting and disseminating information regarding integrity, or lack thereof, of the US, state, and local justice systems.

In November 2010, the United Nations would conduct its first ever review of the Human Rights record of the United States, as part of the UPR (Universal Periodic Review).
[2]  The deadline for submissions to the United Nations for the review process is coming up shortly.  In view of the time constraints, the planned HRA report, would almost entirely  hinge on existing Government, NGOs, Scholarly Journals, and Media reports.  Examples are provided below [3]

Your help in requested in providing references, or copies, of any Government, NOGs, scholarly journals, or media reports of Human Rights violations in the US pertaining to integrity, or lack thereof, of the US, states, or local justice systems.

[3] Examples of Government, NGOs, Scholarly Journals, and Media reports that were intended as part of the HRA report to the UN.

a) Blue Ribbon Review Panel Report (2006) - official government report of a panel commissioned by the LAPD, which documented the ongoing false imprisonment of the victim of the Rampart corruption scandal (1998-2000).  The report concluded "innocent people remain in prison", and recommended "external investigation", singling out the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, as requiring an examination.

b) Erwin Chemerinsky - The Criminal Justice System of Los Angeles County (2000) - report by the founding dean of University of California, Irvine Law School, and acclaimed constitutional scholar, regarding the Rampart corruption scandal.  Prof Chemerinsky concluded This is conduct associated with the most repressive dictators and police states and judges must share responsibility when innocent people are convicted.

c) David Burcham and Katherine Fisk - Loyola Symposium: The Rampart Scandal - Policing the Criminal Justice System.
(2000) - report by then Dean Burcham and Prof Fisk, of the Los Angeles Loyola Law School, which concluded: judges tried and sentenced a staggering number of people for crimes they did not commit."

d) Public Broadcasting Service -  Frontline: Rampart False Imprisonments (2001) - transcript of one installment from the acclaimed PBS series LAPD Blues, which provided estimates of the numbers of the victims of the Rampart corruption scandal - the Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) ranging between 8,000-16,000. Other estimates indicate that to this date only 100-200 of the Rampart FIPs were released.

d) Inspector General of the United States Department of Justice - Special Report (1997) regarding CIA trafficking of illicit drugs to Los Angeles.  It is alleged that such conduct by US agencies could never have taken place without mutual acknowledgment and patronizing of each other's conduct by local, state, and US agencies.  Drug sales by law enforcement was the underlying theme in the Rampart scandal as well.  Concerns regarding ongoing drug sales by law enforcement were acknowledged in the provisions of the Consent Decree (2001), which required periodic financial disclosures by undercover narcotic officers.  However, such provisions were never enforced by the Los Angeles Overseer for Civil Rights during his long tenure (2001-2009).

Please Sign Petition - Free Richard Fine // Por favor, Firme la petición - Liberar a Richard Fine

RICHARD FINE was arrested on March 4, 2009 and is held since then in solitary confinement in Twin Tower Jail in Los Angeles, California, with no records,  conforming with the fundamentals of the law, as the basis for his arrest and jailing.

Richard Fine - 70 year old, former US prosecutor, had shown that judges in Los Angeles County had taken "not permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
