Written in detective book style, like the detective that he is, Gary's book makes one sensational revelation after another. Most readers will not likely know what to make of There's a Fish in the Courthouse, but I do. Most of the grim events in the book took place in Ventura County, where I was raised. I can vouch for the accuracy of many events in Gary's book, because I lived there when they happened, and knew from the inside what took place. Also, my former business partner, free energy promoter Dennis Lee, was first thrown into jail in Ventura County, and I found out the hard way, first hand, about the wholesale corruption in the county. I have a web site in progress that deals with Gary's book and many other issues. I doubt nothing that Gary says he experienced, though I do not agree with all of his theories. There's a Fish in the Courthouse is not for the faint of heart, and Gary has risked plenty by publishing his book. Publishing his book has been a great act of courage, and the gangsters that run Ventura County and other governmental bodies have made Gary's life miserable for the past generation. Gary has my undying admiration for his courageous act of publishing There's a Fish in the Courthouse.
My eyes bugged out like organ stops as I pored through Wean's page-turner. All of the worst pronouncements of a cynic do no justice to the pervasive decay and moral ruin that exists within our judicial, legislative, executive and police agencies. This is not just California corruption Mr. Wean refers to (in detail), but a whole nation nearly poisoned unto death by its caretakers.
If any one of you could have seen the look on senator John Tower's face when I served him you would understand why so many people are afraid of the truth. The book is a living report and tells every thing the way it should be. Real Names, Real people.
As to Harry P. We are one Nation under GOD. and there will be Justice For ALL!!!!

Based on sprawl growth from Los Angeles and the artificially created energy crisis, petroleum rich Ventura County was a necessary plum for the picking by corrupt interets. But, only if controlled by the "right" people and entities. Billions of dollars have been made and are yet to be made as real estate development continues to replace farmland and petroleum is extracted from the Los Padres National Forest.
The result has been necessary control by any means for a minimum of 40 years. This control has resulted in corruption is all levels of government, including elected local, state and national officials, government staff, law enforcement, the District Attorney and the entire judicial system of the County and State!
Another necessary element was the willing participation of the financial and business community interested not just in short term but also longterm avantage. Particularly those businesses which would profit by both the corruption and private/public colloboration.
Gary Wean has described it so well that There's a Fish in the Courthouse has become a classic in Ventura County, a necessary reference book in every law office and the book most often stolen from the Ventura County Librarys!
Oh, and the cause of much teeth knashing of those involved.
