As expected, no action will be taken on the complaint I filed with Tempe municipal court administrator Deborah Schaefer. I spoke with Deborah today and she told me no action would be taken, she claimed it was because she was not a lawyer and such complaints need to be made to the judicial conduct commission.
It didn’t matter to Deborah this involved the clerks who are accomplices to the crimes the judges are committing. When I asked her why, when she knew the context of the complaint, she would ask me to put it in writing if she could not do anything. Deborah refused to answer, she just kept repeating I had to file a complaint with the judicial conduct commission.
She claimed I had a different “interpretation”of the law and she would not “debate” with me the meaning. I asked her what she interpreted “thirty days” to mean and she refused to answer again accusing me of “debating”.
This is classic bureaucratic stonewalling and fools no one. First, she blows the complaint off with the line: Put your complaint in writing. This is a brush-off to get you out of the office or off the phone. Second, once they have the complaint then they claim there is nothing that can be done. Then they make up silly excuses such as we’re “debating” them when asking questions and that our “interpretation” of the law or facts is different. Alright, I can accept that; but they will not tell you how they interpret simple sentences such as “A person shall pay all civil penalties within thirty days from entry of judgment” different from me. Silly me, I thought when a sentence reads “within thirty days” it meant within thirty (30) days.
But, when you are threatening people with punishment if they don’t pay the day of judgment, then you need to stonewall and be dishonest, just as Deborah did today, 28 November 2012. Deborah, when confronted with documentary evidence proving crimes being committed by the people she works with, just avoids addressing the facts and plays the state department two-step.
I asked her if she saw a problem with their policy of paying the day of judgment and the law requiring thirty days and she refused to answer, claiming she was not going to debate the meaning of the law with me. Just a dishonest way to avoid answering a difficult question. As I’ve said before, traffic courts are scams run by criminals.
But we don’t need Deborah to do anything about this; I plan on printing up some flyers with this information. I’m sure the people who are going into the Tempe municipal court will agree that thirty days does not equal same day. What will they do if hundreds of victims of these Tempe judges are confronting them on this obvious breach of their “law”?
And this is just the tip of the iceberg regarding the crimes committed by those doing business as the Tempe municipal court. My next step is to file an updated complaint with the city council.
