RE: Abusive medical practices by the LA sheriff department - employed in suppression of political dissent against corruption.

Dear Dr Pigott and other medical professionals [1]:

What's new:
I am writing to seek your advise regarding abusive medical practices by the Los Angeles sheriff department - allegedly employed in suppression of political dissent against corruption.

Background - history of widespread corruption:
Overwhelming evidence was accumulated over the past three decades of widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, and in particular - the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. In the 1990s it was mostly related to control of illicit drug markets in Los Angeles County, as documented in the Rampart scandal investigation (1998-2000) and subsequent reports. Such corruption resulted in the false imprisonment of many thousands, the Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons), which was fully documented already a decade ago. Regardless, the latest official Rampart-scandal report, the Blue Ribbon Review Panel Report, issued in 2006, documented that almost all of them were never released. Upon review by a competent court of jurisdiction, the matter was likely to be found as severe violation of the Civil, Constitutional, and Human Rights of residents of this country pursuant to ratified International Law.

Already in the late 1990s, and more so in the early 2000s, Los Angeles County became, according to FBI reports "the epicenter of the epidemic of real estate and mortgage fraud", which later became the Economic/Integrity Crisis, still crippling the US today. Countrywide Financial Corporation (CFC), the leading sub-prime lender, was based in Los Angeles County. It collapsed in January 2008, following discovery and publication of the false and deliberately misleading litigation practices of its Legal Department. Additional reports of false and deliberately misleading practices of CFC in courtrooms across the US were later produced as well. Tight relationship was documented between such practices by CFC and later Bank of America Corporation (BAC) and the alleged corruption at the Los Angeles Superior Court, as documented in complaints filed with the US Department of Justice Inspector General - Glenn A Fine, and US Attorney General Eric Holder. Such conduct raised concerns regarding representations of the US as a good-faith party to the Basel Accords (1988/1996 and 2004) on Banking Supervision.

Key feature shared by all deficiencies listed above was claimed to be the evident failure of the US government to implement effective validation and/or functional logic verification, subject to public oversight and/or public accountability, of large computer systems that were implemented in recent decades in government agencies, including, but not limited to the courts and correctional facilities, and also in large financial institutions and public corporations. The manner in which such systems were implemented in courts across the US, both state and federal, was also claimed to have violated state and/or federal rulemaking enabling acts. The conduct of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts in re: PACER and CM/ECF was pointed out as requiring immediate scrutiny.

Regardless of the overwhelming evidence, local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies refused to take any action in the past 3 years. In particular - refusal to take action was noted by FBI, US Secret Service, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Office of Thrift Supervision, Federal Trade Commission, and United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which were identified as holding primary investigational jurisdiction over various aspects of the matters documented in the evidence.

Sepcific cases of alleged medical abuse:
1) Richard Fine (RF), 70 yo former US prosecutor exposed widespread corruption of State of California judges in Los Angeles County, California, and filed complaints at the US District Court, Los Angeles on such matters.
On March 4, 2009 he was abducted by the Sheriff Department's Warrant Detail, reported as about 10 person strong, in open court, at the end of a hearing, with no warrant at all. Details were provided in the Petition - Free Fine - addressed to Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca.
RF has been held ever since, with no warrant - for 9 months now, in the jail-hospital in Los Angeles, California, with a hospital wrist band, in solitary confinement, but off the count of inmates in the jail. RF is NOT sick, and NOT in need of hospitalization.
I have no names of any of the doctors involved in the jail-hospitalization in this case.

2) Name Redacted #1 (NR1) - in early October 2009 I was contacted by the family of another experienced, competent, 65 yo attorney, who had filed complaints in US District Court, Los Angeles, regarding judicial corruption in Los Angeles County, State of California courts.
NR1 spent over 20 days in jail, and is now out on bail. I had a chance to discuss the matter with him in detail. NR1 had been abducted on October 8, 2009 outside his home, when he left home in the morning. NR1 had also been abducted with no warrant. NR1 had been held all along in the jail-hospital as well.
However, NR1 stated that he had been held in a psychiatric ward, and that attempts had been made to have him admit that he had been schizophrenic/suicidal. Such admissions would have undermined any future testimony by him regarding judicial corruption - as mentally unstable.
NR1 claimed that in the hospital-jail he had been deliberately denied regular interval food and insulin, although he had informed the authorities right away that he had been diabetic. He claimed that his blood sugar had gone down to 30 at one point on the first day. He claimed that he had been forced to take other pills of unknown nature, which he had no need for, before being allowed to have food or insulin.
NR1 claimed that he had collapsed in his jail-hospital cell at one point on or about October 20th, 2009, and had suffered concussion.
NR1 did provide me with the names of doctors who had been involved in his case at the jail-hospital.

3) Name Redacted (NR2) I have a similar report from yet a third person, non-lawyer, who contacted me. He also had been abducted with no warrants, he also informed me that he had been kept in a psychiatric ward.
I have no names of the doctors who had been involved in the case of NR2.

4) Attempts to access legal records of RF and NR1 - In October 2009, I filed a request with the Sheriff Department of LA County, to access the arrest warrants of both RF and NR1 - to inspect and to copy. Such records were public records by California law. I was advised on the matter by the Legal Director (LD) of a civil rights organization. LD provided me with the exact section and subsection of the law to quote. LD also stated that his organization had filed such requests on a regular basis in other counties in California, and other Sheriff Departments in California regularly complied with the law.

The Sheriff Department of LA County to this date denied the requests for access to the warrants of both RF and NR1. This message is also copied to the Sheriff Department, Office of Lee Baca, Sheriff, as a repeat request to access the arrest warrants of Richard Fine and NR1, previously requested, to inspect and to copy.

In sum - In all three cases, individuals were abducted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department with no warrants, and were kept jailed, under the guise of hospitalization. In two of the three cases, the involuntary hospitalization was in psychiatric wards.

Thanks for any response on the matter. Anonymous responses can be entered as comments on my web site at: http://inproperinla.blogspot.com/ If felt necessary - do it from an internet cafe' to have it double anonymous.

II. The Usual

"This case should demonstrate that the FBI will pursue all allegations of judicial corruption vigorously, as public corruption violations are among the most serious of all criminal conduct and can tear at the fabric of a democratic society," said John F. Pikus, special agent in charge of the Albany division, in a prepared statement.
