"Corruption is endemic in the enforcement of drug laws.

Many people who have cash and property seized are never charged with a crime.

Many police departments are dependent on drug related seizures for basic budget items." - Clifford A. Schaffer

In rural East Texas, methamphetamine labs often operate unnoticed.

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

In the last six years, the Troup police force sent just 2 felony drug cases to the district attorney's office.

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.

"We do that much 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." - district attorney Matt Bingham

"America contains 4% of the Earth's population and has incarcerated 25% of all imprisoned people on Earth.

Twenty years ago America spent $36 billion on police, courts and incarceration a year while today it spends $167 billion.

The economic costs of a criminal justice system that emphasizes punishment and incarceration at the expense of rehabilitation and the potential for recovery are unsustainable." - Joe Domanick, senior fellow in criminal justice at USC Anneberg's Institute for Justice and Journalism.

"Since 1975 California criminal justice policy has developed haphazardly, through laws passed by politicians whose chief goal was to appear to be tougher on crime than their opponents.

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 transforming the prison system have been unable to do what they need to do because of the union's willingness to use dollars and scare tactics against reform-minded politicians." - Jeanne S. Woodford, California Department of Corrections

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

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."

This web site 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 gun.

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.
