Federal Lawyers and Wisconsin Residents Willing to Fight Back NeededDouglas Benson for Salem-News.com
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.
