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".

11-05-06 The Big Picture... // El panorama general... // 图片...

What is missing is the big picture and historic perspective...

As far as Los Angeles County is concerned:
  1. The first turning point was in the early 1980's, when someone in the US government decided to direct the operation of CIA drug trafficking to Los Angeles County, California (part of the Iran-Contra Scandal). Effectively, it rendered the county an extra-constitutional zone.  It also required collusion by all state and US justice agencies in undermining the law.
  2. The second turning point was the Rampart scandal (1998-2000), when it turned out that LAPD followed suit, and was by then in fact the drug purveyor to the county. The scandal also showed that the courts were directly involved in the illicit drug marketing, through the large-scale false imprisonment of innocent people as the drug dealers.  By that time, the federal agencies could not say a word, and only colluded in  the cover up.
  3. The third turning point started in the early 2000's, when the courts shifted their primary racketeering efforts to mortgage and real estate fraud in collusion with Countrywide, which was based in LA County. It was at least in part the outcome of banking deregulation by the US government.  By the early 2000's LA County was already recognized by FBI as "Fraud Capital, USA" and in official reports as "the epicenter of the epidemic of real estate and mortgage fraud".
  4. The fourth turning point started 2008, with the collapse of Countrywide, and the initiation of fraudulent foreclosures in the courts.
Overall, the Blue Ribbon Review Panel (2006), which investigated the issue for three years, reported that corruption levels in 2006 were estimated to be higher than those in the 1920's, during the infamous "Water Wars", recorded in popular culture in Chinatown.  In short, review of conditions in LA County clearly indicates that we are in the midst of a new Robber Baron Era, similar to that that prevailed a century ago. At that time, the US Congress described the US Courts as "a burlesque".

Such detailed information is not available for the rest of the US, perhaps New York and Chicago (Cook County) may have comparable data.  However, the big picture trend is similar across the United States.
