Perjury, also known as forswearing, is the willful act of swearing a
false oath or of falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether
spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official
Perjury is considered a serious offense as it can be used to usurp the power of the courts, resulting in miscarriages of justice. In the United States, for example, the general perjury statute under Federal law classifies perjury as a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to five years
Subornation of perjury, attempting to induce another person to perjure themselves, is itself a crime. To prove subordination of perjury you must prove the perjury and also prove that the perjured statement was procured by the accused suborner who knew that it would be false
We all know that if perjury was vigorously pursued, almost every police officer would be in prison.
Truth becomes treason in an empire of lies.
One need only ask any attorney how many times they have seen anyone being charged with perjury, to understand how it is never enforced.
It pays to lie, and the police know that they will never be charged with perjury.
Believe it or not, the court requires you to take an oath. They want you to raise your right hand and acknowledge the oath that ends in ....so help you God.
The oath used in court is:
If you were to ask them honestly why they include God in the oath, they would honestly tell you that most people fear ever lasting hell .
As an atheist, my inclination is tell them the same amount of truth as can be found in the bible.
Taking an oath in court basically absolves the court of damages caused by perjury. As one stupid judge, Douglas W. Stoddart taught me, you cannot question the veracity of a witness who took an oath to tell the truth. This man was a true idiot. We are thankful he has retired and he no longer smears his judicial feces in our court system.
