I’m not sure but I think this has been pulled by the Mods at least twice
The hell with that. He should be criminally indicted for making the jury listen to the likes of Rachel Jeantel and Schipping Bao and that other nutcase ME.
First I ever heard of it, so I looked it up:
WHEREAS it has become apparent to the citizens of San Francisco, that there is no security for life and property, either under the regulations of society as it at present exists, or under the law as now administered; Therefore the citizens, whose names are hereunto attached, do unit themselves into an association for the maintenance of the peace and good order of society, and the preservation of the lives and property of the citizens of San Francisco, and do bind ourselves, each unto the other, to do and perform every lawful act for the maintenance of law and order, and to sustain the laws when faithfully and properly administered; but we are determined that no thief, burglar, incendiary or assassin, shall escape punishment, either by the quibbles of the law, the insecurity of prisons. the carelessness or corruption of the police, or a laxity of those who pretend to administer justice.
It boasted a membership of 700 and claimed to operate in parallel to, and in defiance of, the duly constituted city government. Committee members used its headquarters for the interrogation and incarceration of suspects who were denied the benefits of due process. The Committee engaged in policing, investigating disreputable boarding houses and vessels, deporting immigrants, and parading its militia. Four people were hanged by the Committee; one was whipped (a common punishment at that time); fourteen were deported to Australia; fourteen were informally ordered to leave California; fifteen were handed over to public authorities; and forty-one were discharged. The 1851 Committee of Vigilance was dissolved during the September elections, but its executive members continued to meet into 1853.
The Committee of Vigilance was reorganized on 14 May 1856 by many of the leaders from the first one and adopted an amended version of the 1851 constitution. Unlike the earlier Committee, and the vigilante tradition generally, the 1856 Committee was concerned with not only civil crimes but also politics and political corruption. The catalyst for the Committee was a murder, in the guise of a political duel in which James P. Casey shot opposition newspaper editor James King of William. The 1856 Committee was also much larger, claiming 6,000 in its ranks. The 1856 Committee of Vigilance dissolved on 11 August 1856, and marked the occasion with a Grand Parade.
Political power in San Francisco was transferred to a new political party established by the vigilantes, the People’s Party, which ruled until 1867 and was eventually absorbed into the Republican Party.
How many times is this meaningless post going to be recycled?
The way it is done now, “citizen grand juries” are nothing more than press releases. However, this *could* change.
In a given state, a law could be created for a process by which a citizen grand jury could be seated. It would have to use the same pool of citizens as a regular grand jury, but participation would have to be entirely voluntary and likely unpaid.
Its purpose would be to assemble both documentary evidence and unsworn testimony, that if the grand jury found was substantial evidence of criminal wrongdoing by a public official, transcripts of those proceedings would be forwarded to legal authorities outside and superior to the authority of the investigated public official, subordinates or peers who could block it.
No. It’s an ad-hoc kangaroo court.
I wish some “citizens” would drag her fat ass to Gitmo.
Shelterguy has had at least as many successful outcomes as has Mr. K layman.
I have never taken millions of dollars from donors to get ZERO results either.
“citizens’ grand jury” == bunch of yahoos issuing a press release. It has no recognized legal standing. We’ve had several of these threads, and they make FR look stupid.
They can ignore it, because Klayman is no longer a prosecutor.
