10-10-01 Corruption of the California courts noticed by the United Nations

In summer 2010, the staff report of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, as part of the first ever, 2010 UPR (Universal Periodic Review) of Human Rights in the United States, noticed and referenced the Human Rights Alert April 2010 submission, pertaining to "corruption of the courts, the legal profession, and discrimination by law enforcement in California".

10-04-09 Dialog with Attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal in Re: OAK Submission to the United Nations Review of the United States (Part II) // Diálogo con el Procurador Zena Crenshaw-Logal en Re: OAK La sumisión a la revisión de las Naciones Unidas de los Estados Unidos (II)

Hi Joseph:
Please keep in mind that we have page limitations for our submission and there are limits to my ability to process all the specifics you reference and directly incorporate them in our submission.
You mention my "focus on muzzling of attorneys" is "too lengthy in proportion." What portion(s) of it do you think should be removed?
Finally, the format of our submission coincides with the formatting requirements imposed by the U.N. We are specifically encouraged to refrain from using footnotes which is why some citations are included in the body of our text as opposed to by footnote or endnote.
Beyond my comments above, I consider your post as an indirect supplement of my proposed submission (which are generally encouraged) and / or an expression of opinion.
Thank you for your consideration, encouragement, and support.

Hi Zena:
In my previous response, I deliberately avoided mentioning any points or specifics that were not already in your paper. It is just the issue of readability, organization, and proportional weight.
Just two examples:
1) At the end you reach a conclusion that there is a need for international monitoring of the US justice system. I fully agree with that conclusion. However, it is a very profound departure from the procedures and practices in place today. Yet, there is no way to figure out how you got there. It must be expanded if it is to be treated seriously, and the foundation must be laid in previous parts of the report.
2) As to what should be deleted - I was rather explicit on that issue as well - any reference to recent initiative by this or that elected official. It is irrelevant. The report is on the past record of the US, not on future promises. Moreover, it comes across as an attempt by you to plug in your favorites into the report. It undermines your credibility.

One additional specific suggestion:
Between your talk and the paper you wrote, it is evident that you are fully cognizant of the matter at hand: DISRESPECT BY THE US OF ITS HUMAN RIGHTS OBLIGATIONS PURSUANT TO INTERNATIONAL LAW.
You then proceed to propose solutions of the nature of US Congressional hearings. It comes across as irrelevant and lacking in credibility. Especially, in view of your long lecture regarding retaliation against attorneys, it comes across as sheepish writing by an intimidated attorney.
A reasonable conclusion from your own writing could have been, for example, suggesting ongoing dialog between the US and the High Commissioner of Human Rights between the 2010 UPR and the 2014 UPR, aimed at setting specific goals and monitoring progress.
Congressional hearings are simply part of the script of different movie, which appear artificially plugged in.

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.
