This landed him in jail.

There is no "legal recourse" against an illegal entity. If the Mafia owned all the judges and all the police, and you decided to take a stand against organized crime and stop paying YOUR "protection fee" - you would (I presume) not be surprised when the Mafia enforcers showed up. Would you then call the Mafia-owned police for help?
Pete may be right as rain, but the legal system is broken to the point of being there only to sanction WHICH criminals get to rob, rape and pillage. Pete is not among them. Neither are you and I.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
