Code Red Refers to any unwritten rule that is generally officially denied.
Code Red is a term from the movie “A Few Good Men”. In the movie, Code Red is a term US Marines stationed at Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay,Cuba) call physical punishment given out for a variety of infractions. As such physical punishment in this manner violates the military rules, officially it does not exist.
Judicial Code Red is/are the various unwritten rules that US Lawyers, Judges and Court personnel abide by.
Among the unwritten Judicial Code Red rules are:
- Lawyers don’t run in elections against sitting judges;
- Lawyers not asking certain questions or doing certain things because they would be embarrassing to the court system;
- Lawyers only allow to be put on the record evidence that will allow the Judge to rule in accordance with the desired results the judge has “telegraphed” to the Lawyers, even if this is against the best interests of their own client;
- Lawyers, Judges & Court Personnel do not expose and/or testify as to the acts of judges or other lawyers that the general public might describe as unlawful, corrupt or an Abuse of Power.
There other unwritten Judicial Code Red Rules, but the foregoing 4 for the foundation for most of the other Judicial Code Red Rules.
These Judicial Code Red Rules are enforced through a variety of Carrots and Sticks.
The sticks are a series of plausibly deniable consequences for violating the unwritten Judicial Code Red Rules. These penalties/consequences for violating these various Judicial Code Red Rules vary in accordance to the severity of the perceived violation and the power of offended party. These various consequences may include black listing, social shunning, professional shunning, trumped up complaints, greater than usual punishment if a complaint is made against them, etc. Break the Judicial Code Red Rules and a lawyer will find winning his cases becomes much more difficult and rare. The simplest of mistakes which could easily be forgiven, suddenly always have harsh consequences for the lawyer who has dared to disregard the Judicial Code Red rules.
On the other hand, the carrots for conforming to Judicial Code Red Rules can be as simple as being left alone. Or, to reward compliance, the Carrots can include receiving referrals, government contracts, Professional Commendations, and/or promotions and advancement along with the money that comes with such carrots.
A fraternity of sorts has grown up around this Judicial Code Red. Lawyers and Judges go to the same social functions, golf courses and country clubs. These relationships make plausibly denying the existence of Judicial Code Red and/or the consequences inflicted for perceived violation, that much easier to affect. In fact, the adversarial displays in the Court room is often as choreographed and orchestrated as TV’s Professional Wrestling. They are done more for the benefit and deception of the clients paying their respective lawyers, than they having any actual effect on the outcome of the litigation at hand.
The existence of Judicial Code Red has been a matter of contention in Minnesota Government hearings and judicial election debates. Since 2005(this is now 2014) 100s of Minnesotans each year have contacted the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees demanding a hearing dedicated to them receiving evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary. And every year since 2005, the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees have refused.
There is no relief in going to the Minnesota Board of Judicial Standards nor the Minnesota Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility Board. Both are essentially “black boxes” who often complain that the Minnesota Legislature gave power limited to such things like untimely filings, bad personal hygiene, drunkenness and/or stealing of client and/or escrow funds. Most usually both of these Government organizations is to tell the complainer that their sole recourse is to appeal the matter to a higher court. And most person can’t afford such an appeal, are physically and/or emotionally exhausted and/or don’t have the knowledge to file the appeal themselves. Even worse, if there own lawyer has deliberately left evidence off the official court record, it can not be introduced upon appeal except in the rarest circumstance.
In Minnesota, Judicial Code Red is the reason why the vast majority of sitting judges that run for re-election, run unopposed.
And Judicial Code Red is one reason that corruption is rampant in the Minnesota Judiciary.
With no opponents running against sitting judges, there is no accountability via elections.
- Example of Judicial Code Red used in a sentence:
- The Corrupt judges in Minnesota are protected from having to face reelection challengers via Judicial Code Red Rules, which they deny exist.
Those were my thoughts.
Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.
If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.
And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.
Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar
Keep Fighting the Good Fight!
