As a Whistleblower Protection Advocate
"Our call to action is for help encouraging the ABA to promulgate a model rule that hinders prosecutors in using America's criminal justice system to retaliate against whistleblowers", says attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal, Coalition Spokesperson.
“Blind deference to prosecutors and their prosecution choices no longer seems prudent” says Dr. Sandra Nunn, a business ethics expert who became a national security whistleblower after years of decorated federal law enforcement. Dr. Nunn referenced New York Governor Cuomo, noting, "He apparently realizes that prosecutors may regularly thwart police accountability. Should we not acknowledge the possibility of them deliberately or recklessly undermining whistleblower protection?”
Whistleblowers Seek To Foster
Allies Among Criminal Prosecutors
February 10, 2014 (MMD Newswire) -- Today, a coalition of grassroots good government advocates reached out to the American Bar Association (ABA), requesting that it fashion a model rule of professional conduct addressing the criminal prosecution of whistleblowers. The lead groups are Plea for Justice Program (P4J) which seeks reform of America’s plea bargaining process; Golden Badge, an international association of current and former law enforcers; and a regional legal reform organization known as the Tennessee State Community Council − Sevier County Division (TennSCC-SCD). According to the Project Spokesperson, attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal, P4J, Golden Badge, and TennSCC-SCD are “rallying for their member, Mark P. Lipton, who was indicted on questionable criminal charges only months after pursuing federal investigation of his former boss, a popular Tennessee Sheriff, for allegedly obstructing a DUI arrest.”
What Tennessee's Legislature
Giveth to Whistleblowers,
Its Executive and
Judicial Branches Taketh Away?
(LIGHTNING RELEASES) June 5, 2014 -- According to a coalition of good government advocates, Tennessee’s executive branch through state prosecutors, and the state’s judicial branch pulled off a sleight of hand trick on the state’s legislature. The reform activists suggest as much in duplicate letters to Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Senator Stacey Campfield, Representatives Dale Carr and Andrew Farmer, as well as Tennessee Chief Justice Gary Wade. The letters call into question the sincerity of both Tennessee’s aggressive crack down on drunk drivers and fervent support of good faith government misconduct disclosures.
U.S. Law Enforcement Whistleblowers:
The Common Denominator of
Black and Blue Lives Matter
CROWN POINT, Ind. - Jan. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- Today Golden Badge (GB) announced another milestone in helping to protect U.S. law enforcement whistleblowers from retaliation. The support group shared online its anticipated law review article, “How To Get Away With Career Murder: The Unconstitutional Blueprint for Systematically Purging Whistleblowers from U.S. Law Enforcement”. According to co-author Zena Crenshaw-Logal, the article “establishes constitutional rights unique to law enforcement whistleblowers subjected to retaliatory criminal prosecution based on false evidence.” It gives these “framed heroes” grounds to access the power of government used against them to identify those conspiring to punish their whistleblowing and exclude them from criminal law enforcement.
