POLL: U.S. justice system is two-tiered; unfair


The vast majority of respondents describe our justice system as “two-tiered, unfair” in light of the Department of Justice decision not to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey.

That’s according to the latest unscientific poll at SharylAttkisson.com.

Ninety-five percent (95%) expressed this loss of faith in the U.S. justice system.

Last week, the Inspector General released a report outlining what it found were Comey’s multiple violations of policies, laws, an executive order and employment agreement. However, the Justice Department declined to prosecute.

The full results of the poll are below.

  1. You and your web site and TV program are doing admirable work……keep it up.
    However it is not just the justice system in your country that is screwed up and unfair. Here are some other serious problems:
    1. No term limits for elected politicians….most become corrupt and wealthy from government largesse after serving multiple terms…and worse still, the public knows it and accepts it; no wonder politicians are prepared to spend so much on campaigning.

    2. No insider trading laws/conflict of interest laws apply to elected politicians; look at all who have grown wealthy from insider information; same reasons apply as in No.1, except I believe this little secret is unknown to most Americans; if known, then you have an even bigger problem….when the people allow them to profit, just by virtue of being elected; it taints the whole idea and purpose of electing representatives.
    3. The politicization of the non-political arms of government like the DOJ, FBI and IRS has reached such epidemic proportions that they all need to be revamped and reformed;

    4. The judicial oversight regime is way out of control, and well beyond what was intended by your fathers of confederation; the supremacy of parliament in the US has essentially been replaced by the supremacy of the judiciary….and look at the circus that has developed in appointing justices, mostly because of the immense power they ultimately wield.
    5. The media in the US is now nothing more than a joke…a bad joke, that is, and does nothing near accomplishing what it was supposed to be as the Fourth Estate, to keep the people informed and officials answerable to their electors. If not for the web, the average person would be totally ignorant of what is going on in their government.

    6. There is too much concentration of power and wealth and mostly in the media.

    7. The Left has left academia and the media in a ruinous state and this must be changed…could take decades, but still must be tackled.

    1. i have to agree with Jack very good points and all correct. The justice system has become part of congress and political . They are useless as tits on a bull , in portland the democrat political party use the fbi like special pets when someone says something they don’t like they send the fbi to arrest them on some made up excuse or something carried to absuredily.
      This isn’t a free country anymore , no longer is it the united states of america.
      they have destroyed it it is nothing . nothing but a bad joke thats not funny
