Telling The Truth!

unwarranted. The appeals court is generally unresponsive to citizen
complaints, and serves to protect the judges, rather than uphold the law.The Judicial Conduct Commission dismisses complaints about judge's abuse of authority out of hand. They typically see their mandate as protecting the judges. All across the country, not just in South Dakota, the courts are out of control, legislating from the bench, dispensing favors to friends, punishing enemies, ignoring the laws and the Constitution, violating the Code of Judicial Ethics. They have become a self-serving political agency, more interested in a political agenda, or the profits that accrue from their actions. It's high time the courts were subjected to some outside oversight.
The JAIL initiative seeks to do what legislatures and the courts
themselves seem loathe to do. That is, to curb the abuses of the courts, and return them to the ideal of justice and fairness for all.
