Above the Law

In a 5-4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court last month sided against John Thompson, a former Louisiana prison inmate who sat on death row for 14 years until proof surfaced that prosecutors had withheld evidence of his innocence. The Court reversed a lower court’s ruling that New Orleans District Attorney Harry Connick Sr. (the father of the famous pop singer) could be held liable for poorly training Thompson’s prosecutors with respect to their obligations to disclose potentially exculpatory evidence.

The Court’s decision is another black mark against the U.S. legal system, according to Independent Institute Research Editor Anthony Gregory. The Court “essentially immunized the entire municipality” against lawsuits for misconduct and represents “the newest peak into the gross corruption of American criminal justice, and a reminder of what government power means,” he writes in an op-ed published in the Birmingham News.

More concretely, not only must Thompson forgo the $14 million in damages awarded by the lower court, but he must also cope with the knowledge that a couple of his prosecutors still practice law. These injustices should anger all Americans, Gregory argues. “State criminality is above the legal standards that apply to the rest of us,” he laments. “This is the real nature of government–the right of state agents to do what would be criminal if done by common people.”

In conjunction with Renee Pittman Books, the Mind Control Technology Blog takes an in depth look into historic, research, covert ongoing testing, and development programs combined with today's use of highly advanced beamed psycho-physical, psychological electronic mind invasive technology. The technology uses extremely low electromagnetic frequency radio waves, microwaves, infrared, etc., designed EXPERTLY for covert, mass and social population control, and undetectable manipulation and influence. Little known to the public, these advancements have been used for DECADES and focused on individuals, groups, communities and large populations. Today a global system has officially unfolded through legalization which legitimized nonconsensual human experimentation for military and law enforcement agencies for research activity testing post 9/11. The reality is that this program has become a deadly subjugation program and effort, which opened the door for massive, inhumane, VICIOUS violations of Constitution, Civil and basic Human Rights. ============================================================================================================ AUTHOR'S NOTE: Due to the nature of the subject matter, these blogs must rely on open literature evidence and substantiating links for confirmation by others. It is a must. One person making these claims is simply not enough. Today there are thousands. Also, these Blogs are written under covert, beamed torture duress, by those accessing them and inserting errors. This is by the mobilized effort around the activist and author as an ongoing hope that the information held within will not be publicized, revealed as credible, and to leave a negative impression of illiteracy. Efforts continue to ensure corrected content and updates.
