Lack of Faith.

One of the cornerstones of society is a court system.

A redress of grievance for an injured party.

If someone is wronged, it should be made right.

But what happens when the vehicle used to make it right becomes corrupt?

Can a criminal enterprise judge right from wrong with impartiality?

Can they have jurisdiction over truth and justice?

Societal Faith

A society must have faith in a Judicial system for that system to have any power.

As our Declaration of Independence states:

...That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...

 But, if the system for justice acts in bad faith, then people begin to lose their faith in that systems impartiality.

How does an organization begin to act in bad faith?

By violating their own rules and regulations.

Officers of the court are deemed to know the law (Owen v. Independence, 100 S.C.T. 1398, 445 US 622).

Knowing the law creates an issue of intent. If they know the law and it's consequences, and they still violate the law, then they do so with intent and purpose. If the court is purposely violating their own rules and procedures in order to bring a person to trial, let alone secure a conviction, does that not taint the entire proceedings? If they are knowingly violating their own rules and regulations in order to appear in court, do they not give up their jurisdiction because of the criminal element of their procedure?

Does this not taint their "just powers" and nullify them?

If their powers are tainted and suspect, this creates an air of "lack of faith" in that government.

Historically, this leads to more vigilante justice, and eventually revolution.

Take the American Revolution for instance.

Did they not fight against the oppression of the British government in an effort to enjoy freedom?

Our society stems from the idea of a need for faith in our government.

We as a society have come full circle to where we were during the time of the Declaration of Independence.

Our judiciary enforces laws passed by the legislature and enforced by the executive branch.

The government is actively seeking to make money by criminally violating our rights.

Crime and corruption are rife in our government, and I for one have lost all faith in them.
