The Wake Behind
September 16th, the author/founder of J.A.I.L. and one of its attorneys, Gary
Zerman, were invited to participate in a Town Hall Meeting called "Beyond
Rampart." It was sponsored by The Alliance of America for Police,
Judicial, and Governmental Accountability Now Project, a national
non-profit, non-partisan organization. The whole event was professionally
video-taped with three television cameras, and present was an L.A.
The motivational factor was
the killing of Michael Arnold by law enforcement officers after a traffic stop.
Michael was shot at with over 250 rounds and struck by 165 of them, 55 of which
were fatal. Michael was white, unarmed, a talented musician and poet,
gentle in character, and part of a loving family. He was driving a Lincoln Town
Car when stopped by law enforcement officers. Michael did not own a gun. For
more details, you may contact Michael's mother, Constance Flaum at pwrpack@.... Constance is
co-founder of AFPJGANP.
Among the speakers was Linda
Guevara, City Councilwoman for the City of Huntington Park, California. After
being elected by the people, she immediately started receiving shocking reports
about how her City's police were involved in all kinds of crimes and were out of
control. She called for a special meeting with her colleagues to discuss her
findings. The result was that the rest of the City Council voted not to take any
action and set in motion to ostracize Linda and strip her of all her committee
positions. In their efforts to malign her, they could not agree amongst
themselves how to go about it, and in the process Linda was reinstated to most
of her positions, including that of Mayor Pro Tem. She said she would be taking
up the position of Mayor in a few months for the City of Huntington Park. When
she does, she says she is going to make major and drastic changes in the
While the emphasis of the Town Hall
Meeting was diversified, mostly centering on police abuse, the message of JAIL
was well represented and known to the majority of those in attendance, with one
speaker, Irene Jensen of Utah being a former Californian and 1996 proponent of
JAIL's predecessor, the "Judicial Reform Act of 1996."
Irene, whose major cause is Child Custody
issues, stated in her speech that she finds that the only answer is JAIL. She
also told us that the knowledge of JAIL is really flourishing in Utah.
Gary Zerman, Chairman of
JAIL's Legal Committee, spoke on the need for JAIL. He stated that he
doesn't even blame the police any more for all the atrocities they cause. It is
an expected and protected code of behavior and fully covered up by the judicial
Ron Branson, wearing his
J.A.I.L. T-shirt, followed shortly thereafter with the report on how JAIL is
spreading nationwide with thirty-one states now participating, and the
expectation that all fifty will be taking part by the end of the
year. The nineteen states yet to be claimed for
JAIL are: Texas, South Dakota, Iowa, Rhode Island, Utah, Wyoming,
South Carolina, Ohio, Missouri, Connecticut, Massachusetts, West Virginia,
Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, and
Branson spoke optimistically
on the plan of JAIL, and that we were not just a group of people yelling "We're
mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more." That JAIL has a methodical
means described by Washington State Supreme Court candidate Doug Schafer as
"achievable." That we're not talking about "Pie in the sky in the sweet by and
by" but a realistic, achievable program that can and WILL be realized, and that
people are going to be hearing more and more about JAIL from all quarters of
The goal of the sponsoring
organization is to scoop up an ever-enlarging coalition of other groups, in
contradistinction to that of JAIL which is to leave an ever-broadening wake
of other organizations supporting and following JAIL with its singular focus. We
are finding that the scoop in front of other organizations is becoming the wake
