One of the new oppressors we face: Meet U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz

U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz:  One of the New Inspector Javerts...
After going after Reditt founder Aaron Swartz to the point of driving him to suicide, U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz tries to seize a hotel from its owner because some guests were busted for drugs there.  Thankfully she failed, but not after forcing the owner to shell out considerable funds in attorney fees.  Turns out her true motivation was the property was not leveraged with debt, so it would have been a windfall for her department.

And of course it is not just Ms. Ortiz.  Environmental prosecutions are out of control.  They decide who is guilty or innocent and use their government power to crush those individuals.  Often times they are guilty of criminal or unethical behavior, considering themselves above the law.  Innocent acts are made criminal.  Normal use of your property is treated as a criminal act.  And God forbid you fall on the wrong side of politics on a criminal charge.

We have to stop these pathological personalities from reaching higher office.  The only way to do so is get the word out and inform your representatives that this sort of behavior by government officials cannot be tolerated.   And yes, we have to go after the biased media too.
