Americans Continue Testing The Obsolete “Ku Klux Klan Act” Of 1871

For those unfamiliar with legal mumbo-jumbo, the Civil Rights Act Of 1871 – better known by the moniker “Ku Klux Klan Act,” which is fitting in many circumstamces – is what gave American citizens the “right” to sue cities, counties, and towns that violate any of your Constitutional rights under color of law. The Act is now codified under Title 42, Sec. 1983 of United States law, and reads as follows:

Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law…

No matter how the rich and protected try and wordsmith the truth, this legislation was nothing more than glorified food stamps for “blacks”…and later “sooth money” for non-rich European Americans, in an effort by the federal government to prevent what was inevitably turning into Civil War II in our country by the 1960s. Nubians (“blacks”) were getting fed up with the savagery of inbred Euro-Americans and young “white” kids were fed up with being forced against their wills to fight in useless wars (a la Iraq) that kill far too many young Americans.

The 1871 Civil Rights Act was a useless, rarely talked about doctrine from its inception until 1961. President Ulysses S. Grant enacted the legislation to force inbreds in the Confederacy to treat “blacks” in accordance with the newly passed 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. Needless to say, the Act did very little (ok, nothing) to deter the savage violence in the post-Civil War Confederacy.

It was not until 1961 (90 years later) that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of Monroe v. Pape, that individual police thugs could be sued under the Act if they violate your rights under color of state law. It took until 1978 (more than 100 years after the original Civil Rights Act was made into law) that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in Monell v. New York Department of Social Services, that the Act also pertained to the cities and/or counties themselves as well for liability.

Three years after the Monroe decision, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which in combination with the Pape decision, was supposed to “give blacks” and others “rights” if state governments hurt them under color of law. Minister Malcolm X sums up exactly what the legislation did…which was/is NOTHING.



In the 1950s and 60s, “blacks” were being murdered openly at an alarming rate, with the backing of federal and state governments; “whites” were being forced into slavery via the draft (many used 13th Amendment defenses in criminal draft-dodging trials); and women were still second-class citizens, decades after the 19th Amendment (voting rights for all). It was just a matter of time before complete chaos broke out in the 1960s, where the USA would have started looking more like Somalia.

Americans seem to be satisfied with the Monroe and Monell decisions, being they could now POSSIBLY get a few hundred thousand dollars in sooth money after some savage police thug murders their brother, sister, or child; while at the same time, the killer would face no punishment at all; which is how every incident like this culminates today.

Though comprehensive changes need to be made to Sec. 1983, we must applaud our fellow people who try and use the weapons we are “allowed” to use BY LAW, and which we did not have the “right” to use pre-1961.

It was November 9, 2004 when savage Kenosha, Wisconsin police thugs Erich Strausbaugh and David Krueger held Mr. Michael Bell against a cop car, while police thug Albert Gonzales murdered Mr. Bell, shooting the young man at point-blank range in the head. The police thugs contend Mr. Bell “tried to run from them” and of course said Bell “resisted arrest.”


Mr. Michael Bell would have turned
27-years-old yesterday.


Mr. Bell’s family spent well over $150,000 on campaigns to bring awareness to not only their son’s murder, but to corruption and good ‘ol boy networks within Kenosha and all other police departments. A couple weeks ago, after nearly five years of litigation, the family finally settled the federal Sec. 1983 lawsuit against the killer cops and City of Kenosha for $1.75 million. But in the end, none of the killers are in prison, none of the money came out of the killers’ pockets (all came from the city insurance fund), and all of the killers are back working their cop jobs.

A similar ending is expected for the family of Mr. Arthur Lee Coleman, who was murdered in cold-blood on January 26, 2009 by Lee County (FL) police thug Tim Galloway and thug U.S. Marshal Scott Ley.


Mr. Arthur Lee Coleman

Mr. Coleman was working as an undercover spy for a Lee County “task force” that targeted car thieves, as a “condition” of arbitrary state “probation” for a car theft charge Coleman got. The fact Mr. Coleman was WORKING WITH THEM did not matter, however, as savage police thugs will quench their thirst for blood by any means. Mr. Coleman was shot in the head as he backed his car out of his girlfriend’s driveway, after thug “probation officer” Timothy Kelly issued false arrest warrants to a judge.

The only evidence you need to realize these savage thug cops just wanted to murder someone is the fact these same goons issued a false report about Mr. Coleman on June 4, 2009…or five months after he was already dead, indicating the dead man in another crime. Neither of the killer cops faced charges, and the federal lawsuit filed on February 17 (read entire who was murdered on tape by Oakland Transit (BART) thug cop Johannes Mehserle back on New Year’s Eve 2008-09, settled the wrongful death lawsuit against BART, Oakland, and Mehserle for $1.5 million in January.


Mr. Oscar Grant.

Mehserle is currently facing murder charges.

And finally, in a First Amendment battle sure to draw nationwide attention as it reaches conclusion, Mr. Robert Ekas, of Clackamus, OR, sued the Clackamus County Sheriff’s Office and police thugs Marcus Wold and Steve Shelley. Mr. Ekas flipped off both police thugs on separate occasions. Thug Wold tried to give Mr. Ekas several traffic tickets in retaliation, all of which were dismissed. Thug Shelley illegally seized Mr. Ekas in retaliation, but did not issue any bogus tickets.

Mr.
Ekas filed a federal lawsuit back in July of 2009, for obvious First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendment violations and the case is now advancing in court. Read the entire Cohen v. California case, which the U.S. Supreme Court in 1971, reversed a California Supreme Court decision which criminalized Mr. Paul Robert Cohen for wearing a jacket that said “Fuck The Draft” on the back of it. In other words, we always have and always will have the RIGHT to flip off police thugs.

The bottom line in all these cases is the fact none of the real criminals (the police thugs and probation officers) were charged with any crimes, and none of them paid (or will pay) any sort of penalty for their crimes. The Civil Rights Act of 1871 can and should be amended in 2010 to include provisions which allow American citizens to bring and prosecute criminal charges against police thugs, and allow punitive damages against municipal entities (the 1871 version does not). There also needs to be a provision which allows rogue prosecutors and judges to be held liable for due process violations.

As long as cities and counties can simply “pay off” American citizens with relatively small settlements which come from insurance funds, the murders will continue. If our country is truely defined by the Declaration of Independence, and Thomas Jefferson’s famous quote, ” all men are created equal,” than these provisions should be added with ease. But this government protects their own and protects the rich, and giving REGULAR people a TRUE, lawful weapon to combat goverment malfeasance will never happen.

In other countries, coup d’etats and civil wars happen when the government goes too far oppressing its people. Here in the United States, we simply bend over and accept the broomstick. And we call ourselves, “the home of the brave”? Arm yourselves now.
