When the people experience, Due Process Violations, in the in the Kent County Judicial System, they turn to the United States District Court, Western District of Michigan, and file a complaint against the lower courts for Deprivation of Rights only to discover, that the District Court Judges uphold the wrongdoing of the lower courts. So there is no where for the people to turn for justice. Therefor, the People have united to reawaken the Common Law Grand Jury because Due Process Rights are routinely being violated in the Kent County Adult Criminal Justice System, Juvenile Justice System, Family Court System and Federal District Court System. Statistics prove the disproportionate rate of incarcerations, child removals, terminations of parental rights, denial of appeals and lawsuits for low income whites and People of Color, in Kent County. The authority of the Common Law Grand Jury comes directly from the Bill of Rights, see United States -v- Williams, and supersedes all other government entities, including the modern statutorily defined grand jury. State and federal constitutions acknowledge Common Law as the ultimate law system even though the People are conditioned to believe that statutory law and codes are the only course to justice. Common Law is above all Statutory Law and upholds the Constitution of the United States of America through the power of the Bill of Rights. Common Law is the highest law of the land, but Statutory Law is what is practiced in our courts today and is held above the Constitution. The authority to support the Common Law Grand Jury is pre-authorized by the government, created by the People, and is prohibited from doing anything to diminish the effect of the Common Law Grand Jury. The Common Law Grand Jury is neither part of the judicial, executive, nor legislative branches of government, but instead belongs to the American People. It is in effect a fourth branch of government "governed" and administered by and on behalf of the People.

The United States "government", is entirely a creature of the Federal Constitution created by, "We the People". Its power and authority has no other source and it can only act in accordance with all the limitations imposed by the Constitution. Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1, 1 L. Ed. 2nd. 1148 (1957). "We the People", created our own government of the United States, the creation cannot trump the Creator. (See, United States Supreme Court, Marbury V. Madison). We the People of the State of Michigan, Kent County, give notice and sign this Petition to inform the judicial system, of our intention to VOTE for and to impanel, a standing 25-member Common Law Grand Jury. As People of the State of Michigan, representative of our diverse community, we wish to exercise our Inalienable Rights to participate in the administration of justice in the Kent County Courts through a Common Law Grand Jury. Each Grand Jury member, as a People of the State of Michigan, will be elected individually by the PEOPLE of Kent County. Grand Jury Members will be elected by the people of the jurisdiction in which they will be operating. Each member will be sworn in and must promise to observe all of the rules, so far as is within his or her power. Once the Jury is impaneled by the People, our committee will contact a Kent County court administrator regarding holding the Grand Jury Sessions and meetings in one of the rooms in the public court house.

We the People
