The American legal system is not like what they told you in schoolbooks when you were a child. It is not like the way they picture it in Hollywood movies, or on USA television shows.
It is not like what you see in the news media, in a few cases when famous people are on trial, and millions of dollars are being spent, and TV cameras are rolling, and reporters from around the world are watching everything that happens. Judges and lawyers behave very differently in those small number of legal cases that get high publicity.
Amidst the vast majority of American legal cases, below the media radar screen, what happens is often sordid and sleazy. Sometimes judges and lawyers commit crimes in broad daylight. Judges ignore the facts, ignore the law, ignore the truth, and ignore justice. Lawyers cut sleazy deals and sell out their own clients. Bribery is commonplace.
There are courtrooms where judges and lawyers scream like lunatics at their victims, where judges and lawyers tell lies and plant false evidence, and no one says a word to fight them. Innocent people get sentenced to prison, or even to be strapped to a table and put to death; or people are told they will be sent to jail unless they pay extortion money to friends of the judge. Judges are hiring thugs to engage in extortion and intimidation of other people, to cover for their own bribery corruption. Fake 'show trials' are held, where both 'sides' of lawyers collude with the judge against the target victim - someone perhaps like yourself.
The best way for rich people to get away with committing felony crimes in America, is to bribe and induce judges to be part of their criminal gang. This makes the crimes harder to pursue, because they almost never prosecute a judge, even when there is clear proof the judge is a criminal, out of their wish to hide that the whole system is crooked.
Yes, it is really that bad.
Unlike what people imagine, most legal cases are never even allowed to get to a jury - the judges make sure of that. People are crushed and destroyed, threatened and sentenced, denied access to their families and children, and lose everything they have and own, without any jury ever hearing what they had to say.
America brags about having the 'rule of law', but this does not mean that the law is taken seriously. All it means is that there are people with the title of 'judges' and 'lawyers' involved, whilst you are being railroaded and denied your rights, whilst your family is destroyed, whilst your life is ruined, and your freedoms are trampled by a court. The 'rule of law' is just a propaganda phrase that covers for rule by lawyers who are often gangsters.
The reality of American courts is an immense tragedy and catastrophe, a tragedy mostly un-reported in the news media. (See below on why USA media are quiet about crooked judges and lawyers.) There are millions of victims, with stories that are largely hidden, their suffering suppressed or obscured by big news media organisations. Some of these victims are under gag orders or bans on their freedom of speech, but many of these stories are out on the internet for you to see, sometimes even despite the gag orders. But don't expect to find these stories easily, the internet search companies often hide the truth for their own purposes, and judges are quickly tempted to issue 'orders to Google' to hide their own wrong-doing.
Because these stories are not prominent on the TV news or in the major newspapers, most people who are not yet victims - maybe like yourself, before you became a victim - because of that, most people tend to believe what they have been told, about living in a 'free country' with 'justice in the courts', supposedly the 'greatest legal system in the world'.
It is natural to believe this propaganda, it is human nature for Americans to accept these stories. But it is not the truth about the USA legal system. It is scary to confront that truth, to face the real facts about fraud and injustice in America's courts. But if you dig deeper, you come to find many particular cases and examples, which show you the real truth about what is going on in USA courts these days.
Judges in America are obsessed with controlling media about themselves, and hiding their misconduct. Via their decisions and decrees and orders, and also their rantings and ravings of malicious anger, are tools of propaganda against people who are victims of the legal system. Whatever courts and judges declare - however lying and false - is what everyone is allowed to talk about and repeat. No matter how dishonest, criminal, slanderous, or unjust, statements made by the judge are 'okay to publish' over and over again, particularly in major media. On the other hand, statements of a private person - especially if critical of a judge or court - are things that carry much less weight. Media often refuse to publish such statements, out of fear the judges will hit back at those media or their owners. With big Western internet search and social media companies mostly USA-centred, USA courts are able to dominate the picture of reality presented by media, who easily fall into the role of being USA judicial corruption partners and enablers.
