Government corruption against the poor in Mississippi is at epidemic proportions, so those cases are left buried such as the totally counterfeit and fraudulent Mississippi Supreme Court case NO. 2000-KA-00777-SCT. The case is as bogus as a three dollar bill and was never meant to go anywhere other than back to Hinds County Mississippi where it was remanded to file leaving my wife, children and I in limbo.

I would be interested in understanding more about the processes that allowed this case to be brought to court. I am sure that many bribes occur that are not reported because of the generally private nature of email.

1) How does one get just cause to subpoena email records?

2) How does a person find representation willing to take on a system so layered with corruption, in which all the players protect each other as a matter of course?

I am very interested in understanding how this case could have been taken successfully to court, as I would imagine in most cases, the odds are against it (which explains the otherwise inexplicable behavior of so many judges).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
