totally wrong

but this happens more often than most will admit
all american courts are for profit,and the judges get a kickback for all they put behind bars
there is no justice,it is just us,we can get put behind bars for a plant,but they can get elected into office.or become lawyers,cops
and judges
their kids can get away with cocaine in their vehicles,we get a felony
and prison time complete with a fine
they can run illegal weapons (to us)over the border and nothing happens,they try to take the 2nd away for their mistakes
they get away with manslaughter,rape and premeditated murder
we get to take their jail time

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

What you write is not entirely true

I am an Assistant Public Defender in Florida, and I know that there are honorable judges and prosecutors, because I work with them. While there is merit in what you write, please do not paint with too broad of a brush.

then please show me?

or was my error,that there are honorable judges and prosecutors?
because the way i see it is this
all of them rule by the color of law,such as statutes ordinances and
these are not laws at all,just made to look that way,and if i am correct,then they all break the laws of the const. judges break their oaths of office if one is fined for jay walking,as does the cop
and the prosecutor as well
judges break their oaths when handing out fines for traffic tickets
if anything does not line up with the const,and there has been a law
that bend and twist it,then they are not honorable
it took and amendment to the const for alcohol prohibition
it took a stroke of a pen for the war on drugs ( all drugs)
if prosecutors uphold them laws,are they then honorable?

also,if they are incorporated then thy are for profit,and they are in it to make money,and that shows their bias

What I was actually objecting to in your previous post...

... was the implication that all judges are corrupt and susceptible to bribery. As one who works on a daily basis with my assigned judge, I know that your implication isn't true in every case, Liberty patriot, and I don't like seeing honorable members of any profession being unfairly maligned.

The post to which I am now responding brings up another issue: Constitutionality. Since I practice in a State of Florida court, rather than a Federal one, let me ask you to please clarify...

Are you claiming that a judge handing out a State authorized fine for a violation of a State sanctioned traffic law is violating the Federal Constitution? In other words, are you claiming that the Federal Constitution prohibits the State Legislature from making, local law enforcement from enforcing, or a County Court Judge from adjudicating, traffic laws? If so, what theory of Constitutional interpretation leads you to this conclusion?

Alternatively, are you claiming that the Florida Constitution is being violated by the way the State Legislature, local law enforcement, or the County Court Judge interfaces with the traffic laws? What level of familiarity do you have with the Florida Constitution?

Please understand, I am one who believes that most of what the Federal Government currently does actually violates the Federal Constitution (flawed U.S. Supreme Court holdings notwithstanding). Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, undeclared wars, portions of the Patriot Act, the NDAA detention provisions, Obamacare, Gitmo... the list goes on and on. But, let's stay focused on the actual Constitutional violations, and not get caught up in blasting every judge and prosecutor everywhere just because we like to blow off steam.

I will let you have the last word on this subject, Liberty patriot.

thanks AJ

while i do not like the last word unless i am right
not too many can claim they are
by our chats i can learn,and i hope you can too,if i provoke that is
here is where i get my information from

now as far as states jurisdiction over traveling,wouldn't
the no victim no crime mean they cannot act unless a crime had taken place?
seeing if they followed the upper courts decisions on the right to travel
the only time one could be stopped is,if a cop needed hand a in an emergency,or there was an injured party
and seeing the courts have not upheld the right to travel( but hide that fact)freely,unfettered and the state courts are saying driving is a privilege and not a right as they see it,then wouldn't it be bribery
if the judges get a non taxed kick back for court costs and fines
and wouldn't that also mean they are not upholding the law
but are in fact upholding the color of law?
and why wouldn't i be able to blast every judge if indeed what i typed is true,as they all do not follow the written laws
there have been court case from friends of mine where one was kept over night,and in the morning the judge let him go,as he pointed out he had the right to travel freely
and if the judges,prosecutors and cops are to uphold and follow the law,and they break them,aren't they then guilty?
especially judges,seeing they are supposed to know the law
isn't the role of judge to keep the peace in the court room,and not be biased,and let the jury decide the guilt of the parties involved?
but judges take on the role of executioner
