Mission Statement














Families Against Court Embezzlement Unethical

Standards

F.A.C.E.U.S. was founded by a group of families victimized by unjust Court Officials.  Being victimized by

the system designedto protect us awakened us to the need for  vigilance and oversight of State and Federal agents and Court appointed officials. When we discovered how widespread and severe abuses are we realized we ourselves must get involved and stay involved. Unless we stop Government Agents and Courts from becoming instruments of oppression there is no hope for Justice in our society.
