With well over 2 million people in jail – the U.S. has the world’s biggest prison population. The US has 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the worlds prison population. Now Children are the latest victims of the Prison Industrial complex having their lives destroyed because of CRIMINALS acting as judges. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports on those dishing out justice for a fee.
Criminals acting as Judges, Mark A. Ciavarella Jr., and Judge Michael T. Conahan, appeared in federal court in Scranton, Pa., to plead guilty to wire fraud and income tax fraud for taking more than $2.6 million in kickbacks to send teenagers to two privately run youth detention centers run by PA Child Care and a sister company, Western PA Child Care.
While prosecutors say that Judge Conahan, 56, secured contracts for the two centers to house juvenile offenders, Judge Ciavarella, 58, was the one who carried out the sentencing to keep the centers filled.
“In my entire career, I’ve never heard of anything remotely approaching this,” said Senior Judge Arthur E. Grim, who the State Supreme Court of Pennsylvania appointed to determine what should be done with the estimated 5,000 juveniles who have been sentenced by Judge Ciavarella since the scheme started in 2003. Many of them were first-time offenders and some remain in detention.
Many believe they should all be released immediately! Also it needs to be determined what is the compensation in the form of money, as well as therapy, for the children.
How is it that Senior Judge Arthur E. Grim is not a SUSPECT in this massive case of egregious criminal behavior? Senior Judge Grim would have been the supervisor of both Judge Conahan & Judge Ciavarella, as they took part in a conspiracy to jail 5000 children, in their profit making scheme. Since these judges have supposedly sworn oaths to protect and defend the Constitution, how is it that they are not being charged with TREASON. Furthermore inasmuch as they were PAID for the bodies of the 5000 juvenile victims, many would assert these men are SLAVE TRADERS and should be prosecuted accordingly.
Some important questions come readily to mind:
- Is it possible, other more senior judges and other conspirators after the fact, including clerks, bailiffs, attorneys and other court personnel were unaware of the escalation of convictions and sentences perpetrated by the two guilty judges?
- As this is unlikely, which of those senior judges and other suspects, are being investigated as possible co-conspirators in this MASSIVE crime?
- Obviously, Judge Grim, should be under investigation as a possible co-conspirator, as he was their boss, – and why did the Pennsylvania Supreme Court appoint Judge Grim to be in-charge of determining the fate of the 5000 children?
- Is the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania complicit in the conspiracy or simply doing damage control to protect themselves and or their colleagues from further invesigation?
- What are the consequences to the status of the private prisons that have knowingly accepted, and were paid to accept the children as SLAVES in this massive conspiracy?
- What restitution by the private prisons, PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care will be paid to the State of Pennsylvania, and to parents of the children?
- Is the justice department of the federal government in fact treating this case as a massive conspiracy – or not?
- To what extent are other similar conspiracy rings, such as this, operating in other states around the country?
- What kind of Audit is being performed, if any, to determine the extent to which similar conspiracies are operating in private prisons for adults in Luzerne county, the State of Pennsylvania and elsewhere around the country.
- A more general questions is, “How must our legal system be changed to prevent such criminal conspiracies from operating with impunity?”
Luzerne County, is an area in northeastern Pennsylvania that has lost many industrial jobs and suffered the he closing of most of its coal mines. With much of the country in economic decay caused by the efforts of the Global money interests such as the federal reserve, this type of situation will continue to occur.
As this case continues to be handled in typical BORG fashion, the investigation will be aborted long before all of the actual perpetrators have been identified and brought to justice.
