THE NEW POLICE STATE TERRORISM

Attorney Hardy Parkerson
Aug. 19, 2005

(By Louisiana J.A.I.L. Lt.JIC Attorney Hardy Parkerson)

Printed in the V-Bulletin for August 19, 2005, located at http://forums.politicsla.com/showthread.php?t=10874 are the words of Hardy Parkerson, a criminal defense attorney, hparkerson@cox-internet.com.

Please note that Parkerson is located in Louisiana, and that the date of this article is August 19, ten days prior to Hurricane Katrina's arrival. And let us not forget that five days passed after the hurricane made landfall before rescue help made its debut.

And further let us not forget the words of our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, "He [King George, III] has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance." "For the transgression of a land many are the princes [bureaucrats] thereof:..." Prov. 28:2. (i.e., where there is much government, there lacketh not evil. Someone wrote, "Katrina & Rita -- can you hear me now?"

The New Police State Terrorism

Take Calcasieu Parish for example. We start off with about a thousand full time deputies. Then there is the Lake Charles City Police of about three or four hundred. Then there is the Lake Charles City Marshal police force of about a hundred. Then there is the Louisiana State Police of thousands. Then there is the United States Marshal police force. Then there is the Port of Lake Charles police force, and the Sowela Tech police force, and the McNeese State University Police force.

Also, now we have the Sabine River Authority police force. Am I missing any? Oh, yes! There's even the Railroad Police, even in Lake Charles, with cop uniforms, badges and guns. Then there is the Federal Bureau of Investigation police, not to mention the I.N.S. Border Patrol police force and the U.S. Customs Service police force which perform run-of-the-mill police operations traditionally handled only by local state police forces.

Our Fathers never intended for the Federal Government to conduct an intrastate-only Criminal Justice System; but that is what is happening right now, with the United States Attorney's offices handling what has traditionally been handled only by local state prosecutors and by local state courts

What's more is that a contingent from each of most of the above-named police forces has gotten together and formed even another giant police force that they call a "Task Force" and they are literally terrorizing the State of Louisiana. In making what is a simple arrest of a non-violent defendant, on a simple drug charge, they arrive en masse and all pull out guns and aim them at even women and children who are not even criminal suspects.

Further, they depend on the United States Attorneys' offices to prosecute the alleged cases that they "make". Since the state District Judges refuse to allow some of these police forces and/or their leader and/or leaders to "terrorize" certain portions of Calclasieu Parish, such as North Lake Charles, and refuse to allow the police to dictate whether bond for accused defendants will even be allowed, and, if so, how much these bonds should be set at, these police forces and/or their leader and/or leaders have elected to take their cases not to the local District Attorneys for prosecution, but to take them to the United States attorneys whose offices are getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

The traditional Louisiana Criminal Justice System is changing and changing fast. There is more to it all than this, but this is something to think about.

Sincerely,

Hardy Parkerson, Atty.
Former Asst. Prof. Crim. Justice
L.S.U. - Baton Rouge
