in Smith County; about 100 miles southeast of Dallas, are as common
as drunk driving arrests according to district attorney Matt Bingham.

Major Mike Lusk, head of
criminal investigations for the Smith County Sheriff's Department, said
Troup police sent a total of two drug evidence samples to the Texas
Department of Public Safety crime lab since 2000.

in an hour." - Major Mike Lusk
"It appears from the current
investigation that the problem is not with the Troup Police Department
prosecuting innocent people, it is that they were not
prosecuting guilty people." -

costs of a criminal justice system that emphasizes
incarceration at the expense of rehabilitation and the potential for

One obstacle to serious reform in the
California prisons is the California Correctional Peace Officers Association,
the correctional officers union, which wields tremendous political power.
Even legislators who understand the issues involved in
the prison system have been unable to do what they need to do because of the

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda
from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international
corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of
reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses
to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their
religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy
named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic
mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system,
corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex
and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a
American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
