Federal Lawyers and Wisconsin Residents Willing to Fight Back Needed

Where are the criminal complaints to the US ATT?

(SALEM, Ore.) - For several years now we have watched attacks on our constitutional and civil rights from all levels, both from the public and private sector. Meanwhile it seems that the very institutions that have been created to help guard our freedoms have been largely ineffectual or absent.

As we speak the governor of Wisconsin is engaged in a battle with the public employee union in his state and has clearly violated federal law in respect to Title 18 of the federal code which is quite clear that use of official power or conspiring with others, to oppress, intimidate, threaten, or punish citizens to deprive or limit any citizens constitutional guarantees or punish them for exercise thereof is a crime.

Not only is it a crime but if the federal government refuses to act this can also be used in an equity suit.

Furthermore while those in government positions enjoy immunity from most claims, any public official who violates a citizens civil or constitutional right does so at their own peril whether they believe they are authorized to do so under law or not.

This is all well established case law that any first year law student is well aware of.

There is even a court injunction the governor and law enforcement are refusing to obey that clearly puts them outside even the broadest of good faith arguments.

So I ask where are the lawyers? Where are the criminal complaints to the US ATT? Where are the equity suits?

What is needed here are citizens that have been impacted by these actions as only someone who has interest may do so to file claims both criminal and civil and federal lawyers willing to really take it to those who abuse our freedoms; not playing the game wasting time and resources. Justice delayed is justice denied.

I would encourage the citizens of Wisconsin to as a first action call and write the US ATT. demanding that they investigate their claims of violations of federal law under section 18 of the federal code by the governor, law enforcement, and others in and out of the state of Wisconsin.

Please remember that the more complaints, the more likely action is to be taken by officials since the US ATT will most likely not act on just a handful of complaints.

Last but not least, any group or person that is serious about going forward with such action put out a public call for federal lawyers that will help file complaints or equity suits in this matter.

You can accomplish much more with a lawyer and a briefcase than a thousand angry protesters.

Douglas, an interesting perspective, but below is some actual codified law for your review that puts things in legal jargon. Also, in states like Colorado and Missouri, who by the way have democratic governors, they have state statutes where it is illegal to have collective bargaining for public employees. Similar to what the 2 million federal union workers have. They also have no collective bargaining rights available which was passed by a democratic congress. So pay attention to those people who complain about what Walker is doing in Wisconsin, but ignore those that are in far worse scenario's in terms of so-called union rights. There is a law on the books indicating it is a FELONY for a public servant to skip out on their duties (think the 14 senators that left the state). Also consider the ethical violations if these people are receiving room and board expenses from others why they ran away. In many states that would be a crime, don't know about Wisconsin. As per Wisconsin statute:"//946.12 946.12 Misconduct in public office. Any public officer or public employee who does any of the following is guilty of a Class I felony: 946.12(1) (1) Intentionally fails or refuses to perform a known mandatory, nondiscretionary, ministerial duty of the officer’s or employee’s office or employment within the time or in the manner required by law; or 946.12(3)// (3) Whether by act of commission or omission, in the officer’s or employee’s capacity as such officer or employee exercises a discretionary power in a manner inconsistent with the duties of the officer’s or employee’s office or employment or the rights of others and with intent to obtain a dishonest advantage for the officer or employee or another;..."
