"If the judges interpret the laws themselves, and suffer none else to interpret, they may easily make, of the laws, [a shredded] shipman's hose!" - King James I of England, around 1616.

“No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,” Justice Sharwood in Ex Parte Steinman and Hensel, 95 Pa 220, 238-39 (1880).

“This case illustrates to me the serious consequences to the Bar itself of not affording the full protections of the First Amendment to its applicants for admission. For this record shows that [the rejected attorney candidate] has many of the qualities that are needed in the American Bar. It shows not only that [the rejected attorney candidate] has followed a high moral, ethical and patriotic course in all of the activities of his life, but also that he combines these more common virtues with the uncommon virtue of courage to stand by his principles at any cost.

It is such men as these who have most greatly honored the profession of the law. The legal profession will lose much of its nobility and its glory if it is not constantly replenished with lawyers like these. To force the Bar to become a group of thoroughly orthodox, time-serving, government-fearing individuals is to humiliate and degrade it.” In Re Anastaplo, 18 Ill. 2d 182, 163 N.E.2d 429 (1959), cert. granted, 362 U.S. 968 (1960), affirmed over strong dissent, 366 U.S. 82 (1961), Justice Black, Chief Justice Douglas and Justice Brennan, dissenting.

" I do not believe that the practice of law is a "privilege" which empowers Government to deny lawyers their constitutional rights. The mere fact that a lawyer has important responsibilities in society does not require or even permit the State to deprive him of those protections of freedom set out in the Bill of Rights for the precise purpose of insuring the independence of the individual against the Government and those acting for the Government”. Lathrop v Donohue, 367 US 820 (1961), Justice Black, dissenting.

"The legal profession must take great care not to emulate the many occupational groups that have managed to convert licensure from a sharp weapon of public defense into blunt instrument of self-enrichment". Walter Gellhorn, "The Abuse of Occupational Licensing", University of Chicago Law Review, Volume 44 Issue 1, September of 1976.

“Because the law requires that judges no matter how corrupt, who do not act in the clear absence of jurisdiction while performing a judicial act, are immune from suit, former Judge Ciavarella will escape liability for the vast majority of his conduct in this action. This is, to be sure, against the popular will, but it is the very oath which he is alleged to have so indecently, cavalierly, baselessly and willfully violated for personal gain that requires this Court to find him immune from suit”, District Judge A. Richard Caputo in H.T., et al, v. Ciavarella, Jr, et al, Case No. 3:09-cv-00286-ARC in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Document 336, page 18, November 20, 2009. This is about judges who were sentencing kids to juvenile detention for kickbacks.

"Hahahaha. 'Trying to kill me'. Dude... You didn't uncover the Manhattan project, you harassed some local chips". Facebook comments 5 days before whistleblower about police misconduct #AdamRupeka was murdered

I mentioned Adam Rupeka as a whistleblower of governmental misconduct who was likely murdered by the police in Mexico, together with his girlfriend - after repeatedly exposing misconduct of New York police, having criminal charges against himself tossed, a police officer fired for misconduct and obtaining a monetary settlement from the police, see my blogs here and here.

Adam Rupeka fled to Mexico for his life after he was charged with an unsinkable charge causing instant hatred in the media - sexual assault on a child.  See my blog about Facebook comments regarding a person charged with burning a child with hot water - the person was still covered with presumption of innocence at that time and was charged, not convicted.  Police, the target of Rupeka's investigations, was, of course, aware of this reaction on social media once a person is charged with a crime against the child, especially a sexual crime, so publications about Rupeka charged with a sex crimes asserting that he IS, not alleged to be, the perpetrator, were meant to bring harm upon him.

By the way, exposing a person charged with a sex crime to harm is a frequent tactic by the government - and a tactic that recently brought a multimillion jury verdict in federal court to Julian Wendrow who, after having been improperly charged with a sex crime against the child in Michigan, was thrown in jail, made to sleep for 4 days on a concrete floor, and was placed in general population of convicted criminals, exposing him to harm - I quote documents of that case I obtained from

In Adam Rupeka's case the name of the victim is unknown, whether anything happened is also unknown, since Rupeka died, the case is closed and will not be available for review on FOIL, but Rupeka's name as a whistleblower of governmental misconduct is marred, which was the whole purpose of the charges.

At this time, after the Dallas events, there is a backlash on Facebook where anybody who says anything against the police misconduct are rolled into asphalt for being disrespectful to the memory of the fallen officers.

I am not disrespectful to the memory.

But, the fact that police officers were shot in mass protests against police misconduct does not undo the fact that police misconduct exists in this country, is rampant and, until the advent of the era of the Internet and smartphones, was not addressed and was repeatedly covered up by the government.

I firmly believe that Adam Rupeka was murdered, and was murdered by those who would benefit the most by his death - those whose misconduct Adam Rupeka repeatedly exposed, the police.

As the story of Adam Rupeka unfolded, I was collecting comments about him on Facebook.

I remind my readers of the deadline.  Adam Rupeka was found dead in Mexico on April 6th-7th, 2016.

These are comments on Facebook from April 1, 2016, when he and his girlfriend were running for their lives.

By the way, Rupeka posted on YouTube that he is running to Canada, obviously trying to deflect those following him - see the comments about Rupeka's posts regarding fleeing to Canada.

Yet, he was still tracked and murdered - in Mexico.

Tell me, who has the ability for such tracking but the government?


These interesting comments, for some interesting reason, comment on Adam Rupeka's whistleblowing activity exposing police misconduct.  While commenting about criminal charges for a sex crime against an unknown child brought against Rupeka by those same people whose misconduct he repeatedly exposed.

5 days after these comments, Adam Rupeka was permanently silenced in Mexico.

Jessica Fowler's dream - see the last comment - came true.  We will never see one of his new videos again.

The videos about police misconduct that Adam Rupeka made during his lifetime are available on YouTube though.
