This is completely ridiculous. These fucking frat brats had scienter written all over their faces -- and all over their text messages. They knew Timothy Piazza was drunk as hell and appeared dead after his fall down the stairs. They were scared about going to jail. Yet they let him lay there overnight, likely causing his death.
But in the Beta Theta Pi case, asshole protectionist Judge Allen Sinclair looked right on past that. The Collegian correctly opines that both of Judge Sinclair's decisions in this case have been flat out wrong.
What else can you say from the State with Judge who allowed Cash for Kids just a few years ago:
One of the biggest corruption scandals to hit America's juvenile justice system started to unfold in 2007, when parents in a central Pennsylvania county began to complain that their children had been tossed into for-profit youth centers without a lawyer to represent them.
Over the past eight years, the kickback scheme, known as "kids for cash," has resulted in prison terms for two Luzerne County judges and two businessmen — and convictions of thousands of juveniles have been tossed out. Now the case is entering its final chapter: a few remaining class action lawsuits in which victims are seeking millions of dollars in compensation. One of those claims drew to a close Monday, when a federal judge signed off on a settlement in which one of the businessmen, Robert Powell, would pay $4.75 million.
The actual payouts will begin in December, after the plaintiffs choose whether to accept the settlement. Powell, who co-owned two private juvenile justice facilities, served an 18-month prison term after admitting to paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to former Court of Common Pleas Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. and his boss, Judge Michael Conahan. In return, Ciavarella routinely found children guilty and sent them to Powell's facilities.This sort of mentality and protectionism for reckless, abusive frat and sororities continues on in later life, as I noted in this journal entry. "Superlawyer" Terry E. Johnson represents shitty frat boys who have a whole host of disciplinary problems as well as another shitty lawyer named Mark W. Rattan who physically attacked my camera and me. The attack violated the standing ORDER of the Court allowing me to run video of the State persecuting the hell out of one Wendy Alison Nora because she protects homeowners against wrongful foreclosure.
Men like this operate out of privilege and power and have no regard for the First Amendment or other relevant principles of law, and that is why I am busy kicking Johnson's ass and the case will move forward for punishment of his "client" Rattan.
I used quotes around "client" because Johnson never even signed the filings, in direct contravention of Law. Take a look.
So of course it fits that Terry E. Johnson represents frat boys, Chi Psi. They claim "Respect for one's self and others...." As if his client respected me, right.
Cornell suspended them for three years.
University of Oregon, one year.
University of Michigan, reprimanded.
Colorado, they killed Lynn Gordon Bailey. Here's the settlement.
And all of this after an Anti-Hazing video no less.
Boys will be Boys.
