OPRAH, PLEASE DO NOT LET CONGRESS FORCE PRESIDENT OBAMA TO BECOME KING OF THE SLAVES !

by DOUGLAS FIELD Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008 at 3:20 AM
lawyersforpooramericans@yahoo.com USA,WHERE CONGRESS IS THE KING OF SLAVES !!

** GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT THEIR INNOCENT,BECOME THE GUILTY **

WILL AMERICA'S VARIOUS RELIGIOUS LEADERS NOW TAKE A UNITED STAND WITH THE IVORY TOWER LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD US CONGRESS FOR FUTURE FUNDING TO ALSO BE ALLOCATED TO OUR UNDERFUNDED US JUDICIAL SYSTEM?

***OVER 100,000 INNOCENT MIDDLE CLASS & WORKING POORER AMERICAN'S ENSLAVED IN OUR AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW WHILE TRILLION$ ARE BEING DOLED OUT TO OTHER US CONGRESSIONAL BUDDIES !!!!!

PRESIDENT OBAMA NEEDS TO TELL THE IVORY TOWER LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD DEMOCRATIC US CONGRESS ~ GIVE THEM LIBERTY OR GIVE THEM LAWYERS !

WILL THE INTERNATIONAL WORLD COURT, THE POPE AND THE NFL PLAYERS ALSO COME TO THE RESCUE OF THESE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF ENSLAVED POORER AMERICAN'S ? ** THERE ARE OVER 100,000 INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN'S WITHOUT PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR US PRISONS NATIONWIDE AND MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS MORE ON THE WAY !!

***The CATHOLIC CHURCH could also now really help AMERICA by arranging a speech from the VATICAN by the POPE concerning THIS modern day ENSLAVEMENT of POORER AMERICAN'S by our complacent IVORY TOWER US CONGRESS who appears to be more interested in financing other US Congressional interests then our UNDERFUNDED AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM.

****THE POPE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STATE MURDER OF TROY DAVIS IN GEORGIA, AND A JUDICIAL EXECUTION OF TROY DAVIS IN GEORGIA ***
MANY INTERNATIONAL CITIZENS HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO BOYCOTT THIS ROGUE STATE OF GEORGIA ***
WILL MILLIONS OF CARING AMERICAN'S AND INTERNATIONAL CITIZENS AVOID GIVING THE STATE OF GEORGIA ANY FUTURE BUSINE$$ IF A 3YR. BOYCOTT TAKES PLACE OVER THIS STATE NOT EVEN OFFERING JUSTICE WITH A NEW LEGITIMATE CRIMINAL TRIAL FOR MR.TROY DAVIS? IT'S BEEN SAID BY MANY THAT A THREE YEAR INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF THIS STATE MIGHT VERY WELL COST IT TENS OF MILLION$ WHERE A NEW AND FAIR TRIAL OF TROY DAVIS MIGHT COST THE STATE ONLY $100,000.

**** A SPECIAL FEDERAL TASK FORCE MADE UP OF INVESTIGATORS AND LAWYERS DESIGNED TO VERIFY EVERY ASPECT OF THE 3,300 VARIOUS DEATH ROW LEGAL CASES NATIONWIDE,IS OUR COUNTRIES ONLY REAL METHOD TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT ALLOW STATES LIKE GEORGIA TO CONTINUE ATTEMPTING TO MURDER POSSIBLE INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN'S LIKE MR.TROY DAVIS!

*** FOR THOSE MILLIONS OF AMERICAN'S WHO BELIEVE IN GOD, WE ALL HAVE TO WONDER IN TOTAL AMAZEMENT, HOW OUR AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS HAVE ALLOWED THIS HORROR TO CONTINUE WRONGFULLY EXECUTING AND INCARCERATING INNOCENT AMERICAN'S ALL ACROSS OUR COUNTRY ???

lawyersforpooramericans@yahoo.com(424-247-2013)
**WWW VOLUNTEERS DEDICATED TO LOBBYING THE POPE,WORLD INTERNATIONAL COURT,THE ROYAL FAMILY,NFL PLAYERS, OPRAH,PRINCE CHARLES AND CARING AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS FOR MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS WHO ARE BEING WRONGFULLY EXECUTED AND IMPRISONED ALL ACROSS AMERICA DUE TO LACK OF PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR UNDERFUNDED US JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN NEED OF C*H*A*N*G*E.....

AMERICA'S GREAT LIE
by Gerry Spence

The idea that we should furnish the poor with a public defender has been an effort to save our nation from shame - for sending the poor to prison without adequate representation. But today the nation's public defender system has become a mockery of justice.

To provide an accused with a public defender who has three hundred other cases to defend is simply to laugh in the face of both justice and the accused himself. It takes me months to prepare the average criminal case for trial. The trial itself can take weeks, even months.

While O.J. Simpson was being tried in Los Angeles for murder, a case that cost millions to defend and months to conclude, another black man was being tried in the same courthouse for a similar murder. It took only three days for a jury to find him guilty. He had a public defender with scores of other cases to defend. Many prosecutors boast that they have over a 90 percent conviction rate. Little wonder. Under the present public defender system the prosecutors should enjoy one hundred percent convictions, and many in fact approach perfect conviction rates.

The public defenders in seven states have finally refused to take on any new cases. It's about time. If I walked into court to defend my client and had never talked to him, never previously opened his file, never discovered the witnesses against him, much less interviewed them, never reviewed the evidence in the hands of the prosecution, never demanded my clients rights to discovery, never read the cases relevant to the case at hand, never prepared the cross examination of the witnesses against my client, never ... and on and on, I would be guilty of legal malpractice.

Every public defender who purports to represent an accused under circumstances in which he or she has neither the time nor the resources to fully defend the client is guilty of malpractice. These public defenders cannot be saved from malpractice because they are crushed under a ridiculous case load - some with even as many as five hundred cases or more. No one who was accused with such an attorney has received a fair trial and every such accused is entitled to an appeal on that basis alone. The judge must not sentence the accused under these circumstances because the judge would be taking part in a fraud on the system. Yet hundreds of thousands of indigent persons go to prison each year under circumstances no better than those outlined above.

When I was coming up as a young prosecutor, the defendants were represented pro bono by the lawyers in the local bar. It was part of the duty of members of the bar to take part in the justice system. Today that idea is unheard of. The practice of law is first and foremost a money-making profession. I see nothing wrong with that notion, but what about giving back?

Every trial lawyer should be required to take on a couple of pro bono cases every year. At our office we have a separate pro bono law firm and have for over ten years. It often brings us more satisfaction than our big money wins. The job of a lawyer is to represent the people - the lost, the forgotten, the damned, the hated, the voiceless and the poor. Indeed, God forbid, we may one day become one of those who are entitled to representation but cannot afford it.

Every time an accused goes to prison without having received a fair trial we are one step closer to the loss of our own freedoms. Our rights are, in fact, being fought for by public defenders who can never fulfill their duty to their clients because of their pathetic, impossible, caseloads. When they fail, we are in danger. Our system becomes a hypocritical charade. And we prove, once and for all, that the promised justice for all in America is an evil lie that is imposed on the poor.

If only those with money can receive justice, then how can we permit our children to recite a horrible falsehood in school when they chant, "with liberty and justice for all." That can no longer be the truth in America.
