How is it that a person who is fired with prejudice able to sue those who violated them, but then a person who is violated by the law unable to sue the law? I want to share a story that is touching to my heart, but, because she is unimportant to the media it is unknown to you. My sister, Cynthia Johnson, was recently fired from her job,as a teachers assistant, because, we found out later of course, that her Identification card was used at a recycling place to dispose of a vehicle that happened to be stolen. My sister is a mother of a one year old child and has never commited any crime. After being fired, she and I investigated into the reason behind her termination and discovered a warrant was issued for her arrest. I was appalled at how this came about and how she has had to suffer for the events. An investigation was said to have taken place, however, apon our own investigation we found the truth and can prove it. Why could they not have done what was so simply obvious before placing a warrant? How has it become that easy for innocent hard working Americans to be Violated and shamed? We are not rich and would like to fight all involved in this. Who can we go to? The law says, "Innocent util proven guilty", however my sister as well as Countless others have been victims to shaky police work and an even shakier system that follows. We,the people have become victims and are unaware of the dangers of a system that does not always do extensive work. You could be next!!!! I pray your are able to prove your innocense. Peace!!!!
Try asking a lawyer instead of trying to get information from people with no idea of what the law says.
BS - why are posting anything at all if you have no ideas?
Sort things out, as much as you can, on your own. Lawyers will only cost you a lot of money and may not even do all the work for which you receive the benefit of learning more about the system which obviously requires fixing. When your sister had the job, while she was working, was she a member of a union or a professional association? If she was, that's one direction for her to explore, if not, find out more about her previous position, all the people at the school, the local school board, etc. ... learn about the process of being a social change advocate and you will be able to fix a lot of problems for a lot of people in the end, not just this one for your sister ... find a few places online to help you connect with local sources so you can be part of a larger movement for social justice and human values ... don't let the system run you down!
Identity theft is a nasty thing but I don't see how you can blame "the law" for the actions of a criminal. What is need is more law not less (e.g. correcting the error and getting her reinstated).
I agree with Dave. It would be better to get an advice from a lawyer. My heart goes to your sister as i can understand what it means to be framed up for a crime you know nothing about. However, the law cannot be blamed.
The people who implement laws without doing a proper job have to be made to face their inhuman acts ... if the system has to be fixed, offer moral support to the people who want to learn how to organize social action groups before paying out money to lawyers who may not show much interest in social change and justice for the people!
I cannot speak to the job termination but I can speak of the warrant.
She must appear in the court and be arraigned, enter a not guilty verdict and ask for a trial. The burden of proof would be on the prosecution. She needs to say nothing.
My one question would be, was the recycling place charged with receiving stolen property?
I'm not under the impression the OP asked for any ideas or help. I think she's horrified at seeing, up-close-and-personal, the kind of thing that can happen to innocent people sometimes; and may want to just put it out there to make more people aware of it - or else just to get a discussion about it going.
People who have seen first-hand the kind of shocking "horrors" that can happen to perfectly innocent people often want to talk about, and keep talking about, both to vent and to try to get that kind of thing out in the open.
(Or maybe I've misinterpreted her motives and she really did want help - but I don't think so. )
I doubt we will ever see OP again, so it is more about whether we want to discuss this topic in general.

Deshavue!! It's 1860 all over again! Is this the end of America, Land of the Free? The debate became very bitter. Southern politicians outwardly charged that their voices were not being heard in congress. Some Southern states wanted to secede, or break away from the United States of America and...
