SNAP, Joelle Casteix, and her little friend, Patrick Wall, have persistently bashed our attempts to solve our own problems out of court. 

Their only aim is "the courts, the courts, the courts." And for obvious reasons. Not that there is justice there, but because there is money there. So much money that they are blinded to any understanding of the reality of our situation. So they should shut up about it. 

The prospect of justice for clergy abuse victims in this diocese through the "justice" system is already a mess. 

All eight Guam Superior Court judges have already recused themselves from hearing any of the cases already filed last year. And based on what? "Based on "their relationship to the church." 

(Ummm, who on Guam doesn't have a "relationship to the church?")

So subsequent lawsuits were filed in federal court, but now concerns have been raised by the U.S District Court Magistrate on "whether the federal court has jurisdiction over the cases." 

Additionally, many of us know situations where our local justice system has fallen short, and sometimes gravely. (I am personally aware of a recent verdict in a very serious case which was rendered by a jury, some of whose members had to be twice awakened by the bailiff!!)

The penultimate example of why we do not want to leave justice to the "justice" system is what happened in the CERTIFICATE OF TITLE FIASCO.

In the case of an errant (bogus) certificate of title - like the one procured by The Trained Lawyer and published in the Umatuna by David C. Quitugua in November 2015, the law required the Director of Land Management to "petition the court" to make the correction:

The Director never petitioned the court. Apparently he was later instructed not to. And when Bob Klitzkie found out about it, he suspected something fishy. And when there is something fishy, you can bet that the dead fish smell will lead right to The Trained Lawyer.

After it was learned that the Director had NOT petitioned the Court, Bob Klitzkie requested a meeting with the Director and the AG. Klitzkie memorialized the meeting thus:

And guess who that "her" was? Right. Thus the "dead fish smell!"

All of this is drawn out in great detail in CERTIFICATE OF TITLE FIASCO. The foregoing is reposted as reminder as to why we cannot trust our justice system to do the right thing any more than we can trust the Vatican. 

Once again, we can only look to heaven and to ourselves.
