A colleague recently shared An Open Letter to Sheriff Ward of Harney County Oregon - and to All County Sheriffs in America from Judge Anna

This letter makes a number of claims, among which:

  • The "DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE" is a private subcontractor used by the federal government.

  • "US district courts" are also private subcontractors associated with states only insofar as they lie within certain geographical boundaries.

To what degree are these and other similar government functions "privatized"?

    In my opinion, the claims should be better addressed separately, but they're mostly ludicrous.

    This is probably biased, but it really seems that the US come up with these kind of quacks in much higher numbers than other places around the world...
