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".

Battle of Athens, Tennessee (August 1-2, 1946) - landmark event in Human Rights and constitutional history of the United States - censored on Wikipedia

The Battle of Athens, where WWII veterans successfully conducted an armed rebellion against corrupt coutny government, is relevant to conditions across the United States today for numerous reasons.  Wikipedia's censorship of the entry is not a unique case at all...

Battle of Athens, Tennessee (August 1-2, 1946) - landmark event in Human Rights and constitutional history in the United States

In the battle of Athens, Tennessee, a small group of young WWII veterans initiated in August 1946 an armed rebellion against the corrupt county government. 

The veterans did so in a county that had been thoroughly corrupt for a couple of decades, with a sheriff department and county courts practicing false arrests, false convictions, and false imprisonment, and county government that engaged in falsifying elections. 

The rebellion was initiated after repeated requests for enforcement of the rule of law by the US Department of Justice were ignored.

The two-day armed rebellion ended with the disbanding of the corrupt county government and conduct of open elections for new county government.

None of the participants was ever prosecuted for the armed rebellion.

Given the similarities between conditions in Athens, Tennessee, prior to the rebellion, and conditions prevailing throughout the United States today, the case has major implications:

  •  Both then and now, core part of the corruption was/is a system, where individuals financially benefit from false convictions and false imprisonment.
  •  Both then and now, the US Constitution was/is not upheld by the US Government and the US DOJ.
  •  The general draft and the homecoming of the WWII veterans were key to the restoration of the Human Rights of the oppressed People of McKinn County, Tennessee. The veterans' role in the current civil unrest is steadily growing.
  •  Both then and now, winning honest election under conditions of government corruption was/is practically impossible.

Wikipedia's treatment of the entry for the Battle of Athens is not unique at all. [1-5]

Recent history of the entry for Battle of Athens on Wikipedia documents the censorship:

* April 12, 2012
The short entry was cryptic, and included a comment regarding 'missing information regarding the battle itself and the aftermath'.

The entry portrayed the rebels as drunk veterans:
'There were several beer joints and honky-tonks around Athens; we were pretty wild...'
* April 13, 2012
Text was added, including, but not limited to:
Once the GI candidates' victory had been certified, they cleaned up county government, the jail was fixed, newly elected officials accepted a $5,000 pay limit and Mansfield supporters who resigned were replaced.
The general election on November 5 passed quietly. McMinn County residents, having restored the rule of law, returned to their daily lives... (Byrum pp. 232-33; see also New York Times, 9 August 1946, p. 8).
The 79th Congress adjourned on August 2, 1946, when the Battle of Athens ended. However, Representative John Jennings Jr. from Tennessee decried McMinn County's sorry situation under Cantrell and Mansfield and the Justice Department's repeated failures to help the McMinn County residents. Jennings was delighted that "...at long last, decency and honesty, liberty and law have returned to the fine county of McMinn.. " (Congressional Record, House; U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 1946; Appendix, Volume 92, Part 13, p. A4870).
None of the rebels was ever prosecuted.

- The April 12, 2012 text was restored.
- The comment regarding missing information was deleted.
