Dear Representative Biggs,

I saw you and your story on Oklahoma News Report last Friday and thought: If some sneaky little closet misanthrope wanted to feed a clandestine grudge against the world by filling it up with cages and cops, one of the better ways to do so may not be apparent to a pack of sleazy former prosecuting Lawyers. An important set of facts that they would easily miss is that, (A) all of the youngsters whom the “Smart on Crime” geniuses tend to spin out of prison faster and faster to recycle as their one Big Idea for solving their “crowding” problem are gleefully getting high on weed, speed, downs, glue and alcohol every day and, (B) your fine corrections expert/professionals” have ceased testing any of them for drugs, which is (C) helping them to easily dance past all of your safeguards while committing various drug crimes, to leave prison on their way to your neighborhood, to your kids’ schools, to your Ivory Tower to plunder, to deprive you millionaire talk-artists of  your wonderful possessions, to cause you to hide ever more fearfully behind ever thicker layers of cops, armor and alarms for protection.

Such a person who would want to feign prison “reform” nonsense while secretly seeking to torpedo it, then giggle insanely up his sleeve about how clever he has been, could become far more clever by investing a few cents out of the enormous cop-budgets to re-institute random, even targeted, drug testing of the young-punk prison inmates, since they simply cannot stay away from the stuff, not even for freedom from your tiny cages.

If you haven’t noticed, you’re frittering away your drug war! Time you to tighten the screws and get busy. So you can feel “SAFE”.

Sincerely

James Bauhaus

Prison Gang Violence Equals Higher Cop Profits

Why are the prisoncrats in bed with the prison gangs and why do they reward criminality within prison?

Prisoncrats have long thought that they couldn’t control prisoners without encouraging prisoners to snitch on each other’s activities. In fact, ordinary police work would screech to a glacial pace without a steady flood of snitchery to fuel it. Cops can not function with out snitch-lines, news-stalkers begging for snitches on TV and radio, or beating snitchery out o£ people whom citizens have pointed out to them as criminals, etc. Prison kops model themselves after real cops, partly because the trashiest of real cops often get flushed down into prison work when their true moral character gets exposed too often. When they do, they bring their cop-philosophies with them.

When state govts switched “prisons” for “Correctional Institutions” and “guards” for “Correctional Officers’, this “snitchery required” doctrine was codified in the newly created “Corrections” textbooks, though not in the blunt, blue-collar language I use here. As state govts began to realize the true money-making potential of their criminal slave holdings, prisons were proliferated to take advantage of the fact that ignorant citizens would pay huge, college-fund type amounts of taxcash to keep each criminal idle, in a cage, with virtually zero upkeep or overhead. (Prior to the change to “Correctional Institutions”, most prisons were either self-sustaining or turned a profit from actual labor. The current practice of idling slaves is to prevent cries from business about tax-subsidized “competition”.) Guards proliferated with them, discovered their political power and joined the cops, lawyers, judges, prosecutors, politicians, even news-artists, etc, in obtaining ever more Gross National Product pie with their incessant rasping in public about crime. Crime went up slowly since WWII then faster as a result of the encriminalization of non-corporate “drugs”. Crime went up a little faster when the politicians emptied out the mental institutions onto the streets, outlawed corporal punishment for schoolchildren, paid welfare Moms to have Dadless kids, let these kids escape schools and the learning of English, and let 20 million illegal aliens take a free ride during the last amnesty used by the politicians and special interests to sabotage producer wages in favor of merchant profits.

Despite these and more (e.g, the ’87 and ’00 stock crash-ripoffs, the HUD-thefts and the half a trillion dollar savings and loan give-away) mega-blunders and mega-thefts by various factions of the US and state govt employees, citizens did see an actual decline in crime for the past 16 years. Unable to conceal this trend, and apparently incapable of conceiving (or admitting to) the actual cause of real crime (poverty brought on by low wages and joblessness), a ludicrous attempt was made to give credit for the decline to abortion; specifically Roe v. Wade. Citizens were not comatose enough to accept such flagrant nonsense as this, yet neither were we sufficiently awake to discern (or care about) the on-going explosion of prison building along with the colossal overbloat of cops, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, paralegals, aide:, assistants, guards, bureaucrats, social workers, parole officers and other societal parasites that massive encriminalization efforts tend to create and feed.

We can’t discern the massive prison building efforts going on because prisons are kept very small so that thousands of them can be tucked away in far corners, hidden from view and not easily detected. City ‘work’ prisons look like abandoned school. Many of them ARE, abandoned schools with taller fences and darkened, barred windows. The captives are allowed in and out to work, but prohibited from loitering outside the building where citizens and motorists can see them and think: those scroungy-looking men can not be junior high school students! These captives are prohibited from competing with business enterprises, but they ARE let to push out, honest labor from the limited number of available jobs. Oklahoma has over 25k captives spread out among 22 major prisons, dozens of work-prisons and hundreds of city and county jails.

We can’t discern the drop in the crime rate because the gov/media alliance won’t permit it to occur. Crime must always rise in order to support the vast, bloated and evergrowing populations of cops, lawcrats, politicians and guards who depend on crime for their very rich, taxpayer-provided lifestyles. This is why the ‘News’ is mostly lurid crime stories, “entertainment” is Heros solving crime, “legislation” is roping in more citizens by defining them as criminals and “justice” is stripping them as to their assets, declaring their lives forfeit to slavehood, harvesting their labor and requiring massive subsidies from ignorant taxpayers for their encagement.

Legislative encriminaiization of citizens and taxpayer subsidization of enslavement is such a golden money-maker for govt that corporations bought themselves into the game. Enslaving people for pro profit is such a colossal success that the common dream of “growth” desired by every greedy, low-level electo-crat is often realized not Just by speed traps anymore, but by building and selling cage space.

This explosive growth of cages for sale follows -he explosive abduction efforts of police and parole-crets whose jobs are to keep every available cage filled. Since crime is down, despite anything the news-talkers say, the excess cages are filled in other creative ways. Parole rates are plummeting in every state. Parole revocations are the highest they’ve ever been. The City Councils and state and federal legislatures are pumping out thousands of new offenses, micro-managing what used to be single crimes into multiple crimes full of enhancements, extra sentencing and fining opportunities, etc. Cops, lawyers, judges and prosecutor, are encouraged to create all kinds of scenarios about what they want their media tools to sell to •’he jurors about what they thought their target was up to, each more hideous and fiendish than the last, in order to maximize punishment. Often their target is completely innocent. (Approximately 15% of the time, based on Prof. James Liebnan’s 2000 Columbia University study, “A broken System…”) In a11 cases the sentence and fine is excessive due to the situations already stated and the fact that almost nothing in the US “justice” system is scientific, and almost all of it feasts off near-hysterical emotion and cunningly disguised subjectivity to produce its extreme results.

This crests a welcomed backlash of more crime and bad attitudes in the persons who eventually/temporarily get loose from this accursed cop and lawyer system. This backlash primarily Manifests itself in small thefts, petty vandalism and small-time mutual sabotage of the social contract between the producers of society and the elite who provide wages. Buildings get covered with noxious grafitti, windows get broken, alarms get set off, crank calls get made, tires get slashed, portable valuables get stolen, cars get burglarized, purses get snatched, women get groped;: keyholes get plugged, lights get put out, public facilities get trashed and thousands of other crimes of opportunity get committed. The Elite retaliate by invading everyone’s privacy, setting up cameras everywhere, turning minor crimes into long trips to prisons, destroying whole families, depressing wages, increasing fines, raising taxes, creating new taxes and hiking prices so that everyone is poorer except they who feed off us and our work output.

This same process occurs in prisons. The socially ignorant captives agree to work as slaves for pennies/hour while enduring the most petty of harassments. Even when they do this out of necessity, to buy soap and other hygiene items at high prices from prison profiteers and to pay for medical attention and pharmaceuticals, they resent being exploited. Their lives have been sabotaged, and they respond with sabotage at any opportunity. Tools get broken, materials get stolen and wasted, work creeps along and must constantly be pushed, supervised and quality-checked. Slave labor has never been as cheap as is thought. Any captives who show initiative and competence are swiftly censured by the ones who wear the happy masks and resent exploitation. They oppress the ones with initiative and eventually drag them down to their level.

The guards, jealous of every concession the captives are able to obtain, respond by using each act of petty vandalism or minor rule violation as an excuse to shut down the work and get the captives back into their cages while staging lengthy, unnecessary ‘investigations’.

None of the captives want these interruptions of the daily grind. Socially conscious captives accept their inevitability. The dope-inmates and gang-inmates are totally against anything that disrupts the daily grind. Sales of dope and tobacco stop during lockdowns. Getting high or stupored is harder to do during lockdowns and much less enjoyable when stuck in a dark cage with a person they see too much every day. Lockdowns stop the gang inmates from robbing the weak or unaffiliated individuals who are their usual prey. Lackdowns prevent gangs of thieves from sneaking into other captive’s cages and stealing radios, TVs, etc for resale. Lockdowns often cause the thief-gangs to get caught with stolen items before they can be sold to dupes.

These reasons put the work-managers and guards in bed with the dope-inmates and the thief-gangs. Their common interest is in maintaining the daily grind (and thus production) at all costs. The dope/gang inmates commonly form secret alliances with the guards and managers to snitch off any disruptive efforts of the disgruntled, exploited, activist captives. Doing so helps keep production high, costs low, dope sold and consumed, and thief-gang exploitative activities at maximum efficiency. The rewards for such service is a rampast black market in dope, tobacco, cell phones;. pornography, gambling rackets, etc, and a blind eye toward thefts, injuries, sodomy and many other perversions and crimes. The guards and media also abet criminal activities in prisons by refusing to compile statistics on such crimes and failing to report anything in prison except murders, and them only minimally. It’s a win-win situation all around, unless you’re the exploited, that is.

Innocent Persons Easiest to Convict

How can innocent people defend themselves from the accusations of the entrenched, hereditary elite? Only by proving a negative preposition, it would seem. “I swear I was not where you say I was two months ago:” The trouble with proving a negative preposition is that it is impossible. The  accuses can only say, “I don’t know” or “I was somewhere else.” Usually, the only possible ‘defense’ is the “I dunno” defense- because the cops and prosecutors usually don’t attack with their accusations until months after the crime was committed. Also, once they choose their target, cops and their ‘experts’ contrive to expand or shift the time of the crime to dodge the alibi of their target, if he has one. (Special judge-imposed, prosecutor-favoring disclosure laws force the targeted accusee to reveal his defense at least ten days before trial. This facilitates the prosecutor and cop efforts to nail their target by allowing them to switch the ‘facts’ to their benefit.)

Because the cops enjoy a monopoly of all the ‘facts’, the crime  scene, even the type of accusations, it is virtually impossible for the  victim of their accusations to escape conviction once targeted. (The  lawyer’s system enjoys approximately a 99% successful conviction rate for  just these reasons. As I’ve said before, to be this good, you have to cheat. As previously explained, the much over-hyped ‘alibi’ defense only works in Hollywood and TV fantasies. The public, and especially jurors, are subtly programed to disbelieve alibi witnesses because they are usually friends or relatives of the target. Jurors automatically assume that they lie for the accuses due to this closeness and fail to realize or take into account the fact that most people spend little time with strangers or enemies.

Another way cops and prosecutors screw innocent persons on alibi defenses is by hiding the expanse of time in which an alibi is required for as long as possible, and by being able to shift the expanse of time by a maximum extent of hours, sometimes even days. This way the prosecutor can increase the number of possible opportunities that their target could have ‘slipped away’ to perform crime. Jurors love to believe any kind of ‘Master Criminal!’ v. ‘Sherlock Holmes’ nonsense the prosecutors and cops typically serve up to them. Worse, furors love especially to thwart such supposed master criminals by convicting them despite a complete lack of real evidence. The prosecutor’s titillating story is ‘evidence’ enough for most jurors. Jurors erroneously believe cops and prosecutors are somehow more honest and worthy of belief than other citizens. Also jurors are universally ignorant of common lawcrat conviction tricks such as lying-by-omission, preservation of ignorance, etc. (I e, when cops lie to the prosecutor, and the prosecutor chooses to believe the lie and weaves it into his conviction stories, the prosecutor, technically, is not himself lying, at least according to common lawyer’s system thought. Lawcrats have many such ruses.) Guilty persona have the advantage over innocent accusees in so far as they have some idea of what occurred despite the cop and courtcrat monopoly of the crime scene, the evidence and the accusations. Because of this knowledge the guilty have a much better possibility of dodging cop and prosecutor/judge shenanigans. They know something of what to expect from the cope and courtcratas and thus can plan a real defense that beats the Hell out of “I dunno” and “What the Hell ar you talking about!?”  defenses.

Yes, innocent persons make much easier targets than the guilty. They  are easy to convict for the above reasons and because they believe the absolute horse shit of “If you’re innocent, you have nothing to fear.” Innocent persons have the most to fear: because they are programed to believe no evil is possible of the cop and lawcrat crew, fully 10% of all convictees are innocent. Cops and lawcrats have absolute power to become absolutely corrupt with time. The system is not evil; the Gluttons of Privilege who control it ARE!

HOW FALSE CONVICTIONS ARE MAINTAINED ON APPEAL

Once a false conviction is obtained, the likelihood of an innocent person ever getting an appeals judge to remove it is far less than one percent. Why? The cops, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, legislators and media all choose to make citizens believe that their system of justice is always right, even when it is caught perpetrating numerous acts of criminality and fraud. They do not admit to their crimes; they do not apologize. They deny, delay and disparage their victims. The false front of perfection and infallibility is thrust forward at all costs.

The trouble with false convictions, though, is that their victims tend never to be silent about the legal frauds used to trick jurors into convicting them. We tend to somehow get around the free-speech gags that are placed on us afterward, in prison, and if we have any altruistic bent at all, we expose the legal traps so that, hopefully, no others will have to suffer the same abuse. I’ve already covered how the lawcrats and cops trick jurors into convicting the innocent in my very popular and widely-read treatise, “Innocents” Guide to Avoiding False Conviction”. What I have not covered well enough is the appeals process that maintains false convictions at all costs. I attempt to rectify this fault here.

Appeals judges are faced with the task of silencing innocents, concealing their appeals and feigning an aura of respectability and fairness while doing so. Their first barrier to justice is the standard paper blizzard that all gov’t bureaucracies hide behind when supplicants try to force them to do their jobs. The lawcrats’ paper blizzard is the worst of all, because they have the most at stake: the continued destruction of hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens’ lives. This is why lawyer bureaucracies routinely take years and decades from innocents and very rarely erp anything that even looks like justice from far away. Innocents must determine never to give up, and we must be prepared to continue slamming at the walls within which true justice is held hostage, until death takes us, when necessary. This is a fight more important than any individual.

Their second barrier to justice is the fact that virtually nothing in law is concrete. Everything is subjective. Law is deliberately kept an amorphous, nebulous, flexible thing subject to no fact and many opinions for the express purpose of twisting it to gov’t ends. Gov’t owns the monopoly on law, and no law, or official opinion on law is created without first considering how it will benefit gov’t.

As to how, specifically, lawcrats accomplish this, I have provided an example. Please see the exhibit below, beginning with p. 2(A). This paragraph pertains to federal prisoners only. They have two fewer hoops to jump through than state captives. Innocent federal captives are required by the lawcrats to have somehow uncovered new evidence that would convince judges of their innocence. (“Factfinder” means judge in this instance, and judges are here usurping the jurors’ function, because most “new” evidence is evidence deliberately concealed by the cops and prosecutors from jurors, otherwise no guilty verdict could have been obtained.)

Convincing mere jurors of innocence is as arduous as herding cats that are continuously spooked by cops, lawyers, prosecutors, judges and the media. Convincing judges of innocence is virtually impossible. In the entire history of the US–over two centuries of legal “practice”–innocence has almost never been admitted to by any appeals judges. First, their facade of infallibility makes their throats lock up at the mere word “innocence”. The closest they will come is “not guilty”. When forced, they hide behind neutral words such as “remand”, “reverse”, “rescind”, “acquit”, etc. Only in the past 20 years has there been a “flood” of only about 150 “not guilty” persons released from false and fraudulent convictions The only way that these poor souls ever got away is because lawyerproof DNA has made it scientifically impossible for judges to continue to maintain each individual false conviction. In many cases, science not only proved the victims of legal fraud innocent, but also found the guilty. Judges and prosecutors are happy to leave the innocent in their taxpayer subsidized prisons, but public outcry forced them to prosecute the “newly uncovered” guilty that science kept smacking in their arrogant faces. For this reason ALONE were the 150 extremely lucky innocents finally permitted to leave after wasting years and decades of their lives to convince hardened, cynical judges with appeals to their “reason”.

Think not? Then see p.2 (B). This paragraph is for state prisoners, who make up about 90% of the 150 science-proven innocents previously mentioned. State judge/prosecutor teams, having: the larger task of maintaining 90% of all the fraudulent convictions of innocents, have eased their huge burden by inserting two extra, nearly impossible, requirements for their innocent victims to meet. State innocent-convictees must fulfill every federal requirement. Next, we must convince judges that we are victims of a “Constitutional error”.. This means that the appeals judges must agree with our contention that we were deprived of one (or two, in the case of “ineffective counsel”), of the stipulations in the “Bill o’ Rights:` Hidden underneath this requirement is another requirement: we must not have accidentally “waived” our rights. The primary way that judges and prosecutors determine that we have waived these rights is by noticing that we did not immediately leap up and loudly insist upon them the very moment that a crafty, well-schooled cop or lawyer violates them. The most well-oiled trap door in the lawyer’s system is this one that automatically waives your Constitutional rights before you can even learn that the cop/prosecutor team has trampled upon them. And do NOT expect help from the judge: He is in direct cahoots with them, since he also depends upon your conviction to benefit his profession. This is where ignorance of the law, ignorance of the facts, and ignorance of the cop/lawyer system combine to provide no excuse for the gullible, unwary and the too-trusting. In order to satisfy this requirement, it is often necessary to be clairvoyant and a mind-reader.

On top of this is piled an even more stringent requirement. Proof of innocence is not enough even when coupled with Constitutional errors. One must also prove that the “new” evidence could not be uncovered “earlier”. This is an impossible barrier to justice First, it is usually akin to a miracle that the cop/prosecutor team overlooked, or failed to conceal or de- stroy, the contrary evidence to begin with. Cops and prosecutors know that they can conceal, steal and destroy evidence at whim, .with no possibility of suffering any real punishment even if they do get caught, which is itself highly unlikely. Thus it is standard, routine practice that cops and prosecutors conceal, steal and destroy evidence that is contrary to the conviction of their target. Next, the contrary evidence has a time limit on its “discovery” (the legal term for “uncovery”, because it is usually “lost” within the cop/prosecutor’s files.) Judges and legislators have put a very short time limit on “new” evidence and thus on innocence itself. The cop/ prosecutor team need only steal and conceal the contrary evidence for a single year. Doing so gives the appeal judges the right to waive all your rights to the innocence-proving evidence, due to your lack of “due diligence” in (1) finding that it exists, (2) uncovering the fact that the cops/prosecutor team stole it, and (3) somehow getting it out of their vaults, despite their lies, deceits, delays and refusals. In theory, satisfying paragraphs A or B sound simple if a citizen is truly innocent. In actual reality, however, the barriers to justice are as insurmountable as the lawcrats’ conviction rates are high, (99.55%). As I’ve said for many years, to score this high, you have to cheat. E.g, in over 220 years of operation, the American Lawyers’ System has only released fewer than 200 innocent convictees on appeal and 130 of these occurred in only the past twenty years, and only these because of the rise of IRREFUTABLE-EVEN-TO-LAWYERS DNA evidence.

Evidence of a wholesale, 35-year-long cop/lawcratcheating spree is obvious throughout my case. (see PCR and “exhibits”). Even more cheating is found when one compares the recent tenth circuit “order” (Bauhaus v Reynolds, 07-5094) with the exhibits here. In it the judges pull a very cunning switcheroo to justify their latest fraudulent ruling against this innocent man and for the killer of Mr. Hunt. E.g, the 4th line of p.2, paragraph B requires mere “convincing evidence”. In their “order”, judges Kelley, Hartz and O’Brien switch “evidence” for “proof”, rightfully claiming that I can no longer prove my innocence, now that the cops and prosecutor are proven to have deliberately destroyed the proof, and wrongfully demanding proof where only “evidence” is required. (See the 2nd-to-last paragraph of the 6-21-07 “order” posted elsewhere on my site.) It is slick-lipped pomposity like this that you will find throughout the lawyers’ system. Anyone can be convicted upon “proof beyond a reasonable doubt”, but to become UN-convicted requires proof beyond a shadow of ANY doubt, plus Constitutional error, plus due diligence, plus a year time limit. All this is required AFTER the cops and lawcrats have had every opportunity to steal, conceal, destroy, delay and lie about the innocence-proving evidence. This is more proof that innocence means less than nothing to cop and lawcrat bureaucracies Hell-bent on their own secret agendas of keeping prisons overstuffed and feigning infallibility.

There is no real quality control or oversight on these cops and lawcrats, thus they have juked the system and run completely amok. Jurors used to provide some quality control on them, but have been largely reduced to the function of a rubber stamp for the prosecutor. Citizens have never been in more danger of being convicted by fraud. Citizens need to wake up and FIX GOVERNMENT!
