article imageOp-Ed: War Veteran — Life in prison for lesser crime than sex offender

By Mindy Allan     Jul 3, 2012 in Crime
Is the legal system in the United States corrupt? How does a convicted sex offender walk and a man with a spotless record live his life out behind bars? Is it too late to fix the problems of the American judicial system?
Adam Brown is on the Oregon state sex offender registry list. In 1990, Brown was charged with forty-three counts of sexual assault on a child, pleaded to three counts of sodomy, and went to jail for 15 years. Released to offend again, he has now been charged with the attempted murder and sexual assault on another child which was reported by [i]Digital Journal July 3, 2012.
Richard Taus was a top investigator in the New York FBI’s Counter-intelligence Division. In 1991, he was sentenced to a record breaking 32 to 90 years for questionable charges of pedophilia. Criminal charges were brought against him in alleging sexual misconduct with several young boys. Not sodomy, not rape, not 43 counts! So why is Richard Taus in jail?
Richard Taus has been locked up and the key thrown away for wanting to expose a truth to the American people that would have made their belief in government end. While the judicial system lets people like Adam Brown walk who was a real threat to the children on the streets, Richard Taus who missed watching his son grow up sits in a jail cell. A disposable "Military Hero" and how the truth not told hurt the American people.
The Iran Contra Affair trial caused Richard Taus to be locked away to prevent the truth from ever being told. Did the U.S. sell weapons to the country (Iran) they now want to attack? Does the Mexican "Fast & Furious" investigation sound the same? Those who know the truth will have to keep quiet as the imprisonment of Richard Taus seems to be used to show agents that if you tell anyone the truth you will never see the light of day again. The judicial system is a business, and just about everyone can be bought and controlled.
FBI agent John H. Conditt Jr., 53, who retired in 2001, was sentenced in 2007 to 12 years in prison in Tarrant County court in Fort Worth, Texas, after he admitted he molested the daughter of two FBI agents after he retired. He acknowledged molesting at least two other girls before his law enforcement career. Only 12 years for a crime which exceeds anything Taus was accused of.
So why is Richard Taus still in jail while convicted sex offenders continue to walk on the streets of the U.S. A.? The court case that seems to scream foul, fraud, set up, and retaliation against a U.S. decorated war hero.
Richard Taus welcomes letters from any, and everyone. This could be your father, brother, son, or friend that the judicial system failed. Let him know you have read his story and how you feel about it.
