Moral decay in the social order... is exacerbated by PUBLIC OFFICIALS whose reckless and lawless conduct sets the tone for immoral conduct. When public officials ignore their oaths of office, operate outside the law, or breach their duty to the pubic, lawless conduct soon finds itself in every home. Public officials who fail to prosecute and root out evil, by default conspire to permit the unlawful conduct of others. Society can not expect to reign in the common criminal when it's Public officials engage in and condone unlawful acts?
Do our public officials violate the law with impunity... If the law were applied equally very few public officials would escape prosecution. One violation of the law that applies to many in-office today follows: "Misprision of felony"... an offense under United States federal law, codified under Title 18 U.S.C. § 4 Also see: Current through Pub. L. 112-207. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.):
"Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both." Source: (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 684; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(G),Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
Other laws that address Public Officials... for their failure to expose criminal conduct or corruption in government include: aiding and abetting a crime, malfeasance in office, and official misconduct. Each is a separate crime, depending on the level of knowledge and involvement by those who engage in them. It is difficult to believe that most members of Congress and this Administration don't have personal knowledge regarding acts of corruption and criminal conduct in government.
Congress, officials of the Administration, and Judiciary... who have personal knowledge of violations of the Constitution or law and don't act on that knowledge, may have committed a criminal act. Pres. Obama and others who may have engaged in unlawful conduct, together with those who observed or know such acts, may be in violation of the law... failing to appropriately act on knowledge of a criminal act... too, report it or prosecute the crime... is a crime, in and of itself.
The failure to prosecute... criminal acts in government has opened the door for Public Officials to violate the law with IMPUNITY. The result is an almost total disregard by public officials for their oaths of office and their lawful conduct while in office. Until Congress and the members of the judiciary hold PUBLIC officials accountable under the law... America will continue to see an expansion of LAWLESS conduct by its government and SOCIETY in general. A moral society must begin with the lawful conduct of those who govern... The officers of our government must be held to the HIGHEST, not lowest, Standards of Conduct.
Copy and send the above... to every member of Congress, the Administration, and US Attorney in your area and ask them to begin prosecuting these types of crimes. Let those who govern understand that the People expect them to obey and ENFORCE the laws of the land.
The ultimate test of a lawful society... comes when a People demand the LAW be applied EQUALLY: including to those responsible for administering the law. It is time for the people to demand that their public servants obey all the laws or be removed from office. Public servants must be held to the highest standard of conduct under the law... they set the tone for the moral application of the law in society.
