This section will allow users to easily coordinate activities based on shared views (as opposed to direct personal contacts). Activity on areas like the discussion boards is needed to provide the data required to establish these connections (therefore this area won't be developed until nearly last). Grassroots movements will be supercharged once this section is active.

Section - Judicial Oversight


The original iDrafted.com website quickly added discussion topics related to every judge/court in NC.

[ see a re-creation of the original topics @ http://www.idrafted.org/originalpages/main.php?page=topics ]

Unfortunately, the Judicial Oversight topics dominated the early website. This website is being designed to promote/empower individual projects; social/political/judicial reform are potential projects but they are not a main focus of the website...

Also, there were severe limitations to the static discussion based oversight topics; judges are replaced, they retire, or they change positions fairly often so a static page about a specific judge in a specific court can grow stale.

A sub-section to this website is being created to address Judicial Oversight without overpowering the rest of the topics; the problems with fixed judge/court based pages will also be addressed.

Please note that political and judicial oversight/reform are not the primary goals of this website.

The primary goal of this website is to develop tools for individuals to pursue their personal interests and goals. Obviously, government oversight is very important to some people and specialty tools like the planned Judicial Oversight section are vital to empowering those people.

Separate ratings/reviews for judges and courts should clear up some confusion that resulted from pages specific to both a judge and court.

It is important that a judge doesn't escape a pattern of behavior or abuse simply by moving to a different position...

It will also be useful to view a pattern of complaints or abuses from multiple judges within a single court/district.

*The separate rating/review system means that concerned citizens may post their complaints in either area (or both).

Judges invite scrutiny and judgment due to their nature.

To judge is to invite judgment...

Judicial Oversight and accountability are needed to prevent, stop, and reverse the long-term erosion of individual rights.

If judges, prosecutors, and police aren't held to the same standard as the rest of us, there is no incentive to preserve moderation and common sense related to enforcement of law...

Look at the case of a Massachusetts teenager who prosecutors charged with involuntary manslaughter (for supporting her boyfriend's suicide attempt via text message).

[foxnews.com/us/2015/09/09/massachusetts-teen-charged-with-encouraging-her-boyfriend-to-commit-suicide/?intcmp=ob_article_sidebar_video&intcmp=obinsite]

The important point is not whether the girl should be charged but whether judges, prosecutors, and police should also face charges for their potentially criminal acts based on such indirect causes. Enforcement of law intentionally deprives people of freedoms and enforcers of law are human; meaning that judges, prosecutors, and police are likely to commonly and criminally (via neglect or intent) violate the rights citizens much more directly than this girl committed involuntary manslaughter.
