In a case decided,Tuesday, May 30, 2006, Garcetti v Caballos, two prosecutors squared of in the hallowed halls of the peoples highest court. Prosecutor Richard Ceballos was asked to investigate misconduct by the police as to whether the police misrepresented the facts on a search warrant. He concluded that such misconduct had indeed occurred. He advised the District Attorney for the City of Los Angeles not proceed with the criminal prosecution. His recommendation was ignored, and he was removed from the prosecution team. Eventually, prosecutor Ceballos testified for the defense.
Prosecutor Richard Ceballos experienced the harsh hammer of his employer. Which forced him, to seek relief through the federal courts. There he encountered differing rulings. Consequently, his case reached the nations highest court which ruled against him and the public interest. The public needs to know when their servants misbehave while conducting public business at public expense.Honorable employees should not be punished for serving the public interest by exposing misdeeds. The public has a right to know that such public servants will be protected by the courts. Which this current court, under John Roberts is incapable of doing. What will the nations people do about such an inept court?
Unfortunately, for the people of Tampa Bay and the nation. The peoples court in the nations capital has lost its perspective of people directed jurisprudence. With huge legislative bodies and powerful executives the people have little chance to prevail with their grievances without the intervention of the courts. The United States Supreme Court has abandoned its obligation to,We the People, there primary obligation.
This is how attorney, Bonnie Robin-Vegeer, for Public Citizens Litigation group summed up the court’s decision.This ruling means… public health and safety will be compromised if public employees who perceive corruption feel chilled when exposing such behavior. The people who are best able to expose such misconduct will have no recourse from retaliation without the Court’s constitutional protections. The consequences for the public will be grave, said lawyer Vegeer.
This ruling is clearly against the interest of the public. Senator Nelson of Florida voted to confirm both John Roberts and Samuel Alito who joined the court’s majority against the people. This writer mentions Nelson because he is up for reelection in November. Hopefully the people of Florida will defeat him for helping to perpetuate such an injustice.
