Reporting Connecticut Public Corruption

[click here] for the text of my letter sent July 29, 2008, from the Brattleboro, Vermont, Post Office to US President George W. Bush.

Is Connecticut State Representative Michael P. Lawlor a propagandist? [more]

Grand Jury systems and the need for them explained [video]. Effective Grand Juries, acting independently, is what corrupt officials, police, prosecutors, judges, and defense attorneys fear most.

To: Connecticut State Representative Drew, Thomas J.
Thomas.Drew@cga.ct.gov [website]

I would like to pass onto you a number of individuals that can attest to the same thing regarding what is going in Connecticut. Mr. Drew are you interested in having me pass names onto you or to someone else in the legislative branch?

I am talking about public corruption of the Department of Administrative Services (DAS), the Judicial Branch, the Connecticut State Police, and other agencies, departments, individuals, and their families and associates.

The Connecticut DAS IP address seems to be involved in the hacking and harming of websites, possibly even in attempts to make computers permanently crash.

Numerous individuals could report of the judicial misconduct of Judge Jonathan Kaplan, Joe D'Alesio and others. Should there be defrauding of taxpayers, nepotism, retaliation, obstruction of justice, and the fixing of court cases going on within the Connecticut Judicial Branch? Judicial branch employees that allege misconduct of others don't have their claims investigated, they are sent out on unpaid leave, fired, and judicial marshals, private investigators, and other thugs are sent out to harass their family and friends.

I think there should be a special legislative hearing to call witnesses to public corruption.

Please acknowledge receipt of this email.

Thank you,
Steven G. Erickson

Sovereign and Judicial Immunity of Judges

There is a raging debate on whether judges should have blanket immunity from prosecution, even for malicious acts. Should a judge be able to stand up from the bench, pull a gun, shoot you dead, and then be immune from prosecution?

Should judges be able to rape, rob, murder, and falsely imprison citizens on their whims? [click here] for a video on the Grand Jury System and the need for a strong one.

This public comment [video] was sealed from the public by the brass of the Connecticut Judicial Branch. Andrea Wilson and another judicial branch employee blow the whistle to judges, managers, and VIPs at an official hearing. This testimony and that of the public was hidden so the judicial branch could give itself straight A's in a rigged survey [video] paid for by tax dollars.

What are other insiders in the judicial branch saying when they feel free to let loose? [more]

Ritt Goldstein and international experts on Civilian Oversight of Police spoke at a special hearing held by the Judiciary Committee Legislators in Hartford Connecticut. Ritt was so terrorized by police in Connecticut he fled to Sweden seeking political asylum. Ritt's video of the hearing:

US Marine Stephen Murzin stabbed 13 times in Connecticut is arrested in the hospital with 13 stab wounds for causing a disturbance having been stabbed. Felon on probation David J. Taylor stabs 3 people, almost committing murder, is not even violated on probation! [more]

Connecticut Judiciary Committee Legislator Michael P. Lawlor inaccuracies:

Click on document for a larger view.
I contacted Congressman Shays' office regarding the public corruption in the Connecticut Judicial Branch, courts, and Connecticut State Police.

Here are my points regarding the above letter:

I have brought NO legal action. I have not been to a Connecticut court on ANY matter since the criminal railroad job by Judge Kaplan in Rockville.

I have complained and have got NO RESPONSE back regarding any complaints made.

The Statewide Grievance Committee refused to schedule a hearing even though Atty Michael H. Agranoff did not give me my legal file, did not file a reason or appeal my case, could not explain financial discrepancies, and could not produce or find paperwork INCLUDING the attorney/client agreement where he ASKED ME for a copy of mine as he had lost his! Tell me the lawyer overseeing lawyers in Connecticut is fair!

I complained about Judge Jonathan Kaplan to the Judicial Review Council. They refused to investigate. Tell me judges judging judges is fair!

Atty Gen Blumenthal's Office refused to answer Congressman Simmons letters and calls asking Blumenthal to just read my trial transcripts. Tell me the Attorney General serves the people before his law partners, friends, and others in offices with something to hide!

The Connecticut State Police Internal Affairs Officer, LT Wack refused to take my complaint against his "Friends". Tell me police can police police!

Should Police target homeowners to railroad to prison when they complain about vandals, break-ins, teen prostitutes doing business within eye shot of children, heroin, crack cocaine, and marijuana dealing going on 24 hours a day interrupting taxpayers' sleep?

Peter Coukos leaves me a voicemail:

My daughter, Sarah, was 14 at the time this message was left. Coukos caught me out in my back yard and started slapping me in the back of the head, saying "Turn around coward, I want your daughter to get on her knees and blow me."

I had already been attacked on my property by a police informant, only I was arrested, and I ended up getting a year in prison for pepper spraying him, ending the beating I took in that incident. So, if I ended up defending myself against the punches I was taking from Coukos, again, only I would be arrested.

Peter Coukos was allegedly offered help in obtaining a Connecticut pistol permit for terrorizing me and my daughter out of Connecticut, to attack me, and to try to set me up for another false arrest. Coukos drove drunk while slamming his car into an African American woman over a racist road rage incident, is known to have abused, or is still abusing alcohol, crack cocaine, marijuana, prescription drugs, and has been, or is a chronic frequenter of prostitutes.

Ashcroft defends waterboarding before House panel

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The controversial interrogation technique of waterboarding has served a "valuable" purpose and does not constitute torture, former Attorney General John Ashcroft told a House committee Thursday.

Is Ashcroft a paid corporation thug? [more]
John Ashcroft says waterboarding yielded more valuable information than other interrogation techniques.

John Ashcroft says waterboarding yielded more valuable information than other interrogation techniques.

Testifying on the Bush administration's interrogation rules before the House Judiciary Committee, Ashcroft defended the technique while answering a question from Rep. Howard Coble, R-North Carolina.

"Waterboarding, as we all know, is a controversial issue. Do you think it served a beneficial purpose?" the congressman asked.

"The reports that I have heard, and I have no reason to disbelieve them, indicate that they were very valuable," Ashcroft said, adding that CIA Director George Tenet indicated the "value of the information received from the use of enhanced interrogation techniques -- I don't know whether he was saying waterboarding or not, but assume that he was for a moment -- the value of that information exceeded the value of information that was received from all other sources."

Waterboarding is a technique designed to simulate drowning. The agency has acknowledged using it on terror suspects. Some critics regard it as torture; others say it is a harsh interrogation technique, and proponents say it is a useful tool in the war on terror.

Ashcroft, who stated his opposition to torture, said the Justice Department has determined that waterboarding -- as defined and described by the CIA -- doesn't constitute torture.

"I believe a report of waterboarding would be serious, but I do not believe it would define torture," Ashcroft said, responding to questions from Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California.

He added, "the Department of Justice has on a consistent basis over the last half-dozen years or so, over and over again in its evaluations, come to the conclusion that under the law in existence during my time as attorney general, waterboarding did not constitute torture."

Waters asked Ashcroft whether such techniques would be regarded as "totally unacceptable and even criminal" if they were used on American soldiers.

"Well, my subscription to these memos, and my belief that the law provides the basis for these memos persisted even in the presence of my son serving two tours of duty overseas in the Gulf area as a member of our armed forces," Ashcroft said.

Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, asked Ashcroft how many times waterboarding had been performed. Ashcroft said that it's his "understanding it has been done three times" as part of an "interrogation process." He said he thinks the subjects of the interrogations "would be labeled as high-valued detainees."

The House of Representatives failed to muster the two-thirds majority it needed this year to override President Bush's veto of a bill that would have banned certain CIA interrogation techniques, including waterboarding.

The White House applauded the vote, saying an override "would have diminished the intelligence community's ability to protect our nation."

The bill was an effort to curtail the CIA's ability to use harsh interrogation techniques that the military and other law enforcement agencies ban. It would have restricted U.S. interrogators to techniques outlined in the Army Field Manual.

The White House said the restriction "would have eliminated the legal alternative procedures in place in the CIA program to question the world's most dangerous and violent terrorists."

David Cummings

David Cummings speaks out at the Hartford Connecticut Supreme Court 12-3-07 at a special hearing on ethics in the Connecticut Courts. Bigwigs in the Connecticut Judicial Branch sealed public comment from the public. The Judicial Branch then gave themselves straight A's in [this video]. Judge Jonathan J. Kaplan came up a lot, as well as Rockville Superior Court ... complaint after legitimate complaint.

The History of Public Corruption in Connecticut

A Google online book is just amazing for its information on Windham County in Connecticut.

The idea for this post came from this, below response, in [this thread]:

No, no TV for me.

I will try and get to the local library if they still have a great pamphlet I can no longer remember the name of; there’s a mid-50s version before the wave of local reform and a post-reform version that explained Connecticut government in good detail. That brochure was actually a cooperative project with one of the Federal foreign aid agencies since it was designed for students from foreign governments.

A lot of the rest is just a collection of numerous books & reading over the years.

To go back to colonial days, some of the most fascinating reading can be found in Larned’s History of Windham County. Fascinating for both themes that continue to reverberate today in their parallels, as well as noting what has and has not changed. God bless Google Books (even though I have a recent reprint): http://books.google.com/books?id=g90TAAAAYAAJ

The 1745 murder of a bastard child, from a secret pregnancy, and subsequent execution of Elizabeth Shaw (p. 288);

Dr. Hallowel’s performing an abortion, resulting in the death of the woman, in 1747 and the subsequent trial and jail escape to exile in Rhode Island (bottom p. 362);

Or my favorite, the 1726 issue showing that in nearly 300 years our government bureaucracy is just as inept and politicians just as good at playing hot potatoe — that being the case of the poor idiot Peter Davison. He lived in an area, Mortlake, that was outside of a town’s jurisdiction and who was responsible to pay for his care came to involve at least Pomfret, Norwich, Plainfield, Mansfield, the New London County Court, it was the very first case on the docket when the Windham County Court was established, the General Court, and the Governor & Council. (pages 213, 267, and 344…it was quite a story :) )

I tried to post the below on a Connecticut Local Politics thread:

There are many that have a problem on all holidays, including the fourth.

Bill Dorriss was an antiques dealer in New Haven. His dog bit another dog. Because there were children across the street, he was charged with multiple counts of risk of injury to minors because they witnessed the incident. Dorriss faced spending the rest of his life in prison. He lost his business and fled the tyranny of Official Connecticut.

Ritt Goldstein, a prominent businessman, and rising star in the Connecticut Democratic Party assembled international experts from around the world, and also had victims of Connecticut's courts and police, testify at a special Judiciary Committee Legislative Hearing in Hartford, the video:


Ritt fled the US soon after making the above video to seek political asylum in Sweden. Connecticut police terrorized him that much.

I wasn't getting protection and service from police at my rental properties I had fixed up from a boarded up condition in Connecticut. I went to a CT State Senator asking him to help remove the Prosecutor that told me if I evicted a prostitute that had come to him about my trying to evict her for moving in without permission not paying rent, that I would be arrested and prosecuted. I had also tried to remove a judge for his bias in civil cases. I proposed Civilian Oversight of Police. I then had two separate drugging felons trying to attack me at each of my property locations. I had been told by Connecticut State Police Officers that I was kicked out of Connecticut and if I didn't leave I would be arrested. I was and went to prison for resisting being beaten up on my property by a police informant encouraged to attack and terrorize me. My recent email to John G. Rowland:


Don Christmas also proposed Civilian Oversight of Police and also complained about unfairness in the courts and at the hands of police. He is also a mouthy landlord that talked to reporters. Then a 14 year old prostitute girlfriend of a police officer attacked him from behind slapping him and yelling at him. Only Donny was arrested ALSO facing a year and a half in prison no deals. Video:


Chris Kennedy, ALSO made a complaint about a Connecticut State Police Officer, contacted Rell's legal staffer, and ALSO tried to complain and have Judge Jonathan Kaplan removed for his extreme behavior. Kennedy faced 30 years in prison for checking the wrong box on a court financial form, an oversight. Kennedy was arrested a day after making a complaint about bias and financial improprieties of a State Police Officer. Kennedy's charges were lessened after I faced Rell face to face and asked her why Kennedy was facing 30 years in prison for exposing public corruption in the police, the courts, and elected offices. Kennedy video:


Police in Connecticut have CT State Registered Confidential Police Informants that are paid tax dollars to beat up and kill "Mouthy" citizens. An informant under oath about policies that have not changed:
