District Court Department Mission Statement
As the gateway to justice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the District
Court is dedicated to the administration of justice in a fair, impartial
and timely manner in accordance with the
rule of law. In fulfilling this
role, the District Court shall provide the communities it serves with an
environment that is safe, accessible and respectful to all. The District
Court shall conduct its business with integrity, competence and a commitment
to excellence in order to promote public trust and confidence in the judicial
The legal system in the United States is an adversarial system.
What this really means is that they want to place you in their big
How are the courts stacked against you .... you ask? If accused of some
henious little and petty crime by the police, let me count the ways.
- The police are trained to tell a better story. Police officers
tell stories in court for a living. It's part of their job description.
They do it everyday. You might do it 3-4 times in a lifetime.
The police officers job is to protect and serve, and commit
perjury if it supports the state's case.
This happens all the time. Somedays however, their training
at the Marcel Marceau Mime School pays off when they stay silent.
It's all about control, control and control, the centerpiece of
Perjury in particular demeans the judicial system, but enforcement
of laws against it is statistically de minimis.
Judges and DAs also lie. There is no penalty to do so.
- Police are promoted on the basis of arrests and convictions.
Again, this is their job. What else is there for them to do?
That is besides hanging out at Dunkin Donuts?
- The assistant district attorneys were
law students who joined
the prosecutorial side of the legal business. They either wanted
to deal in criminal law or were not good enough to be hired by large
law firms who do defense work. Only the top notch students get
hired by private law firms. The lower level law students get hired
by the state courts. In essence, they were made for
government work. They are government employees.
The path of least resistance.
The purpose of the DA, assistant DA or prosecutor is simply to convict
you on behalf of the state. Your innocence is simply not part of
The SCOTUS decision,
Brady V Maryland
requires the prosecutors, DAs and judges to disclose
exculpatory evidence but this is generally ignored
The DA and assistant DAs also get promoted based on convictions.
Your true justice is an accidental side effect to their promotions.
Sometimes, you get lucky and the Screw Up Fairy visits
the DA's office.
- 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:
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing
but the truth, so help you God?
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.
This man was a true idiot. We are thankful he has retired and he
no longer smears his judicial feces in our court system.
The SCOTUS case
Engel V Vitale
ruled it was unconstitutional for state officials to compose
an official school prayer and encourage its recitation in
public schools. Why are state officials encouraging the use
of the words so help me God in our courts?
- Ask yourself how the judge got to be judge. He or she was a law
student who became an assistant DA, then possible DA, then judge.
There might have been a diversion into political office such as
state rep. How many judges have you met that did not come from the
To feed their egos, judges tack on the title The Honorable
in front of their names. I can only assume that they were
somewhat less honorable before they became judges.
I'm surprised that none of them have yet called themselves
Lord Of The Realm.
If you have any hard knowledge of the religious inclinations of any
judges, please let me know.
- The juries are stacked against you. Juries are anything but impartial.
More women are picked because more women show up for jury duty.
Choosing a jury involves choosing the dumbest people that show up.
Depending on the case, where fear might be involved, women will
be chosen for their greater fear level.
The primary function of the independent juror
is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens
accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens
from tyrannical abuses of power by government. The Constitution
guarantees you the right to trial by jury. This means that government
must bring its case before a jury of The People if government wants
to deprive any person of life, liberty, or property. Jurors can say
no to government tyranny by refusing to convict
When you hear about jury members having to fill out a long questionaire,
can you really believe for even a picosecond that they could possibly
be impartial. Every question removes more impartiality.
Jurors routinely afford confident scientific experts an almost
mythic infallibility (the CSI effect). No credentials are required
to be an expert.
Jury selection eliminates all those people who have been victimized
by the judicial system. Thus, someone to be tried for murder will
never have a jury of his peers (six or twelve other murderers).
Personally, I think juries should be of the same race as the defendant,
and should have been convicted of the same crime as the defendant.
This might make them more impartial.
Jury Nullification is one tool we have to combat their hostility.
As a general rule, juries are carefully handpicked for stupidity.
- In the quaint legal community, there exists an ancient saying:
Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat.
which translates to
the burden of proof lies with who declares, not who denies.
This is the principle that one is considered
innocent until proven guilty Application of this principle is
a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, recognised in many
nations. This is a major fallacy in our judicial system.
When you see that some guy is
held without bail
, he has been found guilty until proven innocent.
He is being
incarcerated against his
will by the state long before any trial, which could be years away.
When you see somone lose their driver's license because he refused a
breathalyzer test, you see this hypocrisy.
If the judicial system really truly believed that you are innocent
until proven guilty, then all suspects would be released on their
own recognizance, without any bail. However, this notion of being
innocent until proven guilty is a bunch of bullshit
in the judiciary.
- Then, there is a the
Prison Industrial Complex
. Each person sent to prison
feeds all those guards
in the prisons whose unions spend money on election of
tough, crack down on crime judges and DAs.
The only reason marijuana is still illegal is because it is a major
source of funding for law enforcement. Look at
the cool but useless toy
purchased in 2012 with
- Courts are filled with anachronisms of power.
The best is the contempt of court charge. No other state/local
agency has such protection. There is no contempt of cop or
contempt of public official charge.
The judge is given a special power called contempt of court
to put you away if he doesn't like your behaviour. This is more
powerful than the police's catchall,
It's a simple charge that automatically comes with an immediate
guilty verdict. There is no trial, no jury, no nothing. You are
guilty and sent to jail immediately.
The judge's podium or desk and seat is almost always higher than the
rest of the courtroom as a reminder of his place in society, higher
than yours or he pretends that his wee-wee is bigger then your wee-wee.
If you examine the structure of a courtroom, the judge's seat is
the best physically protected, so you are less tempted to twist
his scrawny neck.
The people in the court room have to stand up when the judge enters
or else face a (you guessed it) contempt of court charge.
In one three and a half hour court stint I attended, Judge Greco walked
in and out of the court room to his chambers about five times. Each
time, all the people in the court had to stand up and sit down. This is
what I call the Greco Workout.
The court (the judge) is obsessed with getting respect.
Judges have made many commentaries about how defendants or lawyers are
dressed. A Brooks Brothers suit shows more respect of the court than
jeans and hoodies. However, we need only examine how judges are dressed.
They call them robes but they really do look like black mumus. Black
is regarded as the color of evil and is considered a more threatening
color. In the older days, judges used to wear large white wigs to
give them a larger and more threatening appearance.
Those were the good old days.
Do the judges wear anything at all under their evil black robes?
I should get a picture of a judge standing next to a catholic priest.
Did you ever notice that besides the Catholic church, the only
other institution that seems interested in Latin, is the courts,
as can be seen in their legalese.
Dressing up for church to show respect for a non-existent diety.
Dressing up for court may convince the judge that your IQ will
be higher and the cogency and brevity of your argument will improve.
Clothing does not make the man.
- The public only get hard wooden benches. The lawyers, police and
DAs get soft cushy swivel chairs. The judge's chair probably comes
equipped with a full body vibrator. I'd love to inspect their
chairs and check how often they have to be hosed down.
I would like to see judges, DAs and police sitting on hard wood benches.
We the taxpayers get the more comfy seats.
- None of the courtrooms are air conditioned. One would suspect
that the judges chambers are.
- The sound acoustics in most courthouses are terrible. You can
barely hear what is going on unless you are very close. This
comes from 300 years of acoustical design by members of the court.
One would think that they could install speakers but they seem to
be technically retarded.
- Court security provides one way security. If you are not a lawyer,
court employee or police officer, you are searched for anything
that could be dangerous to the court, like knives, guns, cameras,
voice recorders and other electronic gizmos. The other side keeps
their guns, tasers, cameras and recorders and electronic gizmos.
Nothing says one-sidedness than this behaviour.
In our court, they want you to take off your belt before going thru
court security, and as a new addition, you are now not permitted to
wear hats in court. Either they view hats as disrespect, or they now
want to play with their face recognition software behind their
The courts clearly show tremendous hostility to the public.
The public should reciprocate.
If I did this to them when they enter my house, they would find it
- Robert R. Jackson is the head of court security
(official title is: Assistant Chief Court Officer). Another
incompetent bureacrat. In my case, he ran my little case thru an
xray scanner. It contained four pen and pencils and my wallet.
He then opened it and examined each and every item. He inspected
my belt. It took 45 seconds to clear me. Multiply that by 200
morning visitors and you see the problem in getting thru this
gamut of intellectually challenged staff members.
He's the guy with more buttons and stars on his shoulder to indicate
his alleged authority.
He has nothing but contempt for those entering the courthouse.
If someone complains he claims he is just doing his job.
Imperical observation of these court security officers shows that
all they do is stand around telling people not to read in court.
The boredom of a police officer's work looks a lot more exciting.
You cannot detect a spark of intelligence or humor in these peasants.
- It's very difficult for any intelligent person who has read
H. G. Wells novels to respect legalese English.
If you do not understand what you just read, you can bet a lawyer
probably wrote it.
- The First District Court of Southern Middlesex has four courtrooms
and three judges assigned to it. Only one judge shows up with
- Blacks and people of color have a disproportionate representation
as defendants, while police, court officers, attorneys and DAs
are disproportionately white. The judges are lilly white.
- Over time, lawyers are losing more business because more and more
people prefer to represent themselves, believing rightly so that they
can do a better job than their lawyers. The courts still use an
archaic term for this called
, meaning representing self. Most intelligent people recognize that
law means perverting the english language to the point that it cannot
be understood by laymen.
Do you feel that everybody but you has a hand in the till feeding off your
injustice? Do you feel like those two million people being
incarcerated in the United States?
If you have dealt with the courts, you'll agree that they work under a cloak
of secrecy. The court system is perhaps the least transparent agency in
government. They are also the most technically incompetent.
You are required to swear that you will tell the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth in court. If you swear on a Bible and you are
an honest God fearing man, this might work. But a better strategy would
be to record everything said by those who have taken an oath to tell the truth.
There is no rational reason to not record all court transactions
where you are supposed to tell the truth
Perjury in particular demeans the judicial system, but enforcement
of laws against it is statistically de minimis.
In general, this is done with the exception of court room 4 where the
Clerk Magistrates work.
The Middlesex Court does not make recordings in this particular court room for
a good reason. This will allow the clerk magistrates to lie and allow
police officers to lie without fear of being recorded and a record kept.
As long as it is known that no recordings occur, the incentive to lie is
In those courtrooms where a recording is made, court visitors (called
defendants in legalese) can pay $55.00 for a CD that provides them with an
audio recording of the court's transaction for their case. This is
actually very useful to have to remind people what they had previously said
in case they were thinking of saying something different to better suit
their legal liability.
The names of the defendants are handled in alphabetic order. If your last
name is Aardvark, you're in luck. If it's it's Xylophone, the day in court
drags on and on and apparently slower and slower, as though some crazy
paradox, a quantum time dilation occurs as a direct result of sheer
boredom and monotomy.
