Buying Judgeships for $50,000
Cash Stuffed in an Envelope
It seems that no matter where you turn, the term "judiciary" and "Justice" is wrought with fraud. One poll states that more than half of the people in America believe the judiciary of this country is generally corrupted. When a large segment of a society no longer perceive their justice system as honest, the roots of collapse is not far behind.
A very large shift in public opinion has taken place particularly within the last decade regarding courts. The whole purpose of courts is to afford the populace a forum of redress as a peaceable means of settling their differences rather than in the streets.
Below is a story that centers around New York City where it is described that "Justice" is bought and sold to the highest bidder. It should be noted that New York does not hold a corner on the market in this regard. I was called by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge who expressed personal concern about the judiciary in this county of Los Angeles. Even a couple of district attorney deputies called me to likewise express their concerns about the judiciary here. The sad fact is, America is suffering from a judicial crises, and few officials are willing to do anything about it but give political speeches that infer that they are trying to do something about the problem.
The truth is that only by installing Judicial Accountability & Integrity Legislation (J.A.I.L.) will this country every turn around. See this animation - http://www.jail4judges.org/national_001.htm

The haunting whisper in the courthouse corridors of Brooklyn was heard for so many decades it became an axiom, as unchallenged as it was unproven.
It wasn't just that a case could be fixed. The darker secret was that the bench itself had been bought, that its polyester black robes were on a perpetual special-sale rack, that smarmy party bosses, ensconced at 16 Court Street across from the supreme court they ruled, demanded cash tribute to "make" a judge. The district attorney, Joe Hynes, who first heard the rumor 36 years ago when he was a young prosecutor running the office's rackets bureau, said in 2003 that he'd have to be "naive to think it didn't happen," that it was "common street talk that this has been going on for eons."
So for four years, ever since a judge who'd been caught on videotape taking gifts agreed to wear a wire for a meeting with one of the alleged judgeship marketers, Hynes has searched for the fire suggested by what he calls "the smoke" surrounding this legendary allegation. At last he is on the verge of making the case that will shame New York. The saga of this sewer shakedown has all the heightened drama of a trashy novel, with envelopes of cash handed off just days after 9-11 in the shadows of the collapsed towers. When the disturbing details become fully known, Hynes's stunning prosecution may at last force the state legislature to junk the peculiar way New York State nominates the 14-year-term, $136,700-a-year judges who preside at all felony and major civil trials, as a federal court has already concluded we should.
If judgeships have been sold, as Hynes has apparently established, so, too, has the soul of the city.
