Some litigants have the benefit of having experienced other legal systems and realize that the American public has been conditioned for years to accept the current status quo of corruption and anarchy that characterizes every facet of any judicial proceeding in this country. Take California for example.
The Judicial Council of California proclaims that it is “Committed to providing fair and equal access to justice for all Californians”, http://www.courts.ca.gov/home.htm. Any California resident has to ask WHERE is the commitment to equal justice for everyone? We have a Supreme Court in this state that refuses to touch family law and in a seven year history has not accepted ONE petition for review from a pro per litigant or family law litigant? How exactly does that translate into fair and equal justice?
We have a family law system in this state that is beyond corrupt and there is no accountability as the Supreme Court has closed its doors to every family law litigant. Complaints to the Commission on Judicial Performance, the so-called accountability organization in this State, fall on deaf ears, as the commission cites confidentiality under the CA constitution for failure to do its job. No one holds the Commission on Judicial Performance accountable.
Child protective services, (CPS), makes waves for the unjust removal of children from some parents, whereas it refuses to protect other children where there is a justified concern. Complaints fall on deaf ears. If a lawsuit is filed it is routinely unjustly dismissed citing qualified and absolute immunity of the parties involved, once again a fallacy, but the American Court system protect their own.
There simply is no avenue available for the American Public to have SOMEONE hold these people accountable.
In comparison, South Africa has initiated the office of the Public Protector run by Advocate Thuli Madonsela, a fearless women who holds all public officials accountable for corruption. An example of her actions can be found here: http://www.politicsweb.co.za/politicsweb/view/politicsweb/en/page71654?oid=673857&sn=Detail&pid=71616; http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/25/thuli-madonsela-south-africa-took-on-jacob-zuma
America needs their own public protector.
