Category: Violation of Civil Rights



In the year 2013, the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week takes place from Sunday, April 21st through Saturday, April 27th, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crimes in order to inspire our communities to observe the Victims of Crimes Act of 1984 (VOCA).

The Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA) was an attempt by the federal government to help the victims of criminal actions through means other than punishment of the criminal. It created a federal victims-compensation account funded by fines assessed in federal criminal convictions, and it established provisions to assist state programs that compensated the victims of crimes. The compensation system is still in existence, having distributed over $1 billion in funds since it began.

The statute, codified at 42 U.S.C.A. § 10601, was a direct result of a task force set up by the Justice Department under the auspices of President Ronald Reagan called the President’s Task Force on Victims of Crime, the report issued by the task force in 1982 was harshly critical of existing victims-compensation programs. “In many states, program availability is not advertised for fear of depleting available resources or overtaxing a numerically inadequate staff. Victim claims might have to wait months until sufficient fines have been collected or until a new fiscal year begins and the budgetary fund is replenished,” according to the report.

VOCA established the Crime Victim’s Fund, which is supported by all fines that are collected from persons who have been convicted of offenses against the United States, except for fines that are collected through certain environmental statutes and other fines that are specifically designated for certain accounts, such as the Postal Service Fund. The fund also includes special assessments collected for various federal crimes under 18 USC § 3613, the proceeds of forfeited appearance bonds, bail bonds, and collateral collected, any money ordered to be paid into the fund under section 3671(c)(2) of Title 18; and any gifts, bequests, or donations to the fund from private entities or individuals.

The first $10 million from the fund, plus an added amount depending on how much has been deposited in the fund for that fiscal year, goes to child-abuse prevention and treatment programs. After that, such sums as may be necessary are made available for the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to improve services for the benefit of crime victims in the federal criminal justice system, and for a Victim Notification System.

The Office for Victims of Crimes has chosen this year’s theme to be: “New Challenges. New Solutions.” The mission of the OVC’s strategic initiative is called Vision 21: Transforming Victims Services in the 21st century for the new millennium.

According to Joye E. Frost, the Acting Director for the Office for Victims of Crimes, “in spite of all our progress, victims’ rights laws in all 50 states, the Victims of Crime Act of 1984, the Violence Against Women Act of 1994, and the more than 10,000 victim service agencies throughout the United States of America–there are still enduring and emerging challenges for victims of crimes in America.”

About 50 percent of violent crimes are not reported, and only a fraction of victims receive the help they need. There are still ongoing investigations to know and find out more about these victims, how to help them in the best way, and how the victims’ services can be targeted to reach every victim. While adapting to funding cuts, globalization, changing demographics, new types of violent crimes, and the changes (both good and bad) brought by technology. These 21st century new challenges call for bold, new solutions.

The promise and commitment of our Vision 21, will pave the way to the ongoing work with victims during the 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, in order to transform victims’ services in the 21st century–Office for Victims of Crime, Joye E. Frost, Acting Director

BACKGROUND

I. For the record, Gardenia C. Hung has already reported this unfair and unjust incident to Rev. Herb Essig and the Friends at St. Pius X Catholic Church, since this problem took place in public, just across from St. Pius X Church where the Catholic nuns live.

I have asked for Community Support to report how the Lombard Police Department has unfairly arrested me for wrongful charges and alleged that I have committed criminal assault, obstructed a police officer, and resisted arrest on July 26, 2006. During that afternoon, I had been training for employment at the Illinois Employment and Training Center located at the Eastgate Shopping Center in Lombard. Around 4PM, three (3) young women walked into the bathroom while I was leaving and after I left, called the Lombard Police Department on their cellular telephone to report a stolen cellular telephone. The names of the three young women from Glen Ellyn are Jamila Hanif, Khadija Hanif, and Javeria Hanif, residents at 50 Briar Street #101, Glen Ellyn, Illinois 60137, who talked to Lombard Policewoman Pamela Lessner, Badge No. 710, who was driving the Lombard Community Service Truck. I have pleaded NOT GUILTY to all charges. Afterwards, Lombard Policeman David Thiede, Badge No. 24, alleged that I assaulted him with a Red Burberry umbrella, resisted a peace officer, and obstructed a peacer officer on the front lawn of St. Pius X Catholic Chuch, located at the corner of Westmore-Meyers Road and Madison Street, in the Village of Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois, United States of America. In spite of evidence presented on January 30, 2007 Judge Thomas Riggs sentenced me to thirty (30) hours of community service and additional court fines and costs in the amount of $604, six hundred and four dollars. This legal matter is currently reviewed in the 18th Judicial Circuit Court, Room 4005, before Judge Jane Hird Mitton, on Fridays, May 16, 2005, at 9H30 a.m. and has been continued for Monday, May 19, 2006 , at 9H30 a.m. to verify 30 hours of Community Service performed by Gardenia C. Hung at St. Pius X Catholic Church in the Village of Lombard during 2007-2008. For the record, Gardenia C. Hung has appeared before Judge Cary, as well as before Judge McKillip on September 29, 2006, 8H30, in Room 4001 at the DuPage County Judicial Center, 505 North County Farm Road, Wheaton IL 60187.

Gardenia C. Hung was walking peacefully home from the Illinois Employment and Training Center at 837 S. Westmore-Meyers Road, Lombard, IL 60148, Telephone (630) 495-4345, next to the Illinois Secretary of State, Jesse White Vehicle License Facility, at the Eastgate Shopping Center in Lombard when Lombard Policewoman Pam, Badge No. 710, yelled out from the white Community Police truck that I had stolen an East Indian woman’s cellular telephone at the I.E.T.C. I stopped to answer her ‘NO’ at the corner of Adams St. and Westmore-Meyers Road in Lombard and continued walking home toward St. Pius X Church. When arrived to the front lawn of St. Pius X Church, Lombard Policeman Thiede, Benedicsen, Virene, Schrepferman and Pam, all got out of their Lombard police cars to arrest me and drop all the contents of my handbags on the green lawn, along with my yellow knapsack and my red Burberry umbrella.

During the False Arrest/Detention with Wrongful Charges, Gardenia C. Hung received visible scratches on her right hand wrist, for the record. Both of her arms were twisted and wrenched by Lombard Policeman Thiede who handcuffed her without due reasons. In addition, Lombard Policeman Thiede forcefully removed a Silver Bracelet with a Christian Cross Pendant and did not return the jewelry to Gardenia C. Hung. Gardenia C. Hung wants her Christian Cross Silver Bracelet returned for her right wrist. Moreover, all the contents of (2) two red handbags were emptied on the green lawn in front of St. Pius X Catholic Church, while the Red

Burberry umbrella was thrown on the green lawn by the Lombard Police, and they searched the yellow backpack containing water bottles and personal items.

Gardenia C. Hung, does not plead guilty to Count 1, Obstructing a Peace Officer, nor Count 2, Resisting a Peace Officer, or Count 3, Assault of the Lombard Police as defined by “an open threat of bodily contact with someone without permission”. Please note that Gardenia C. Hung’s Red Burberry umbrella did not have any contact with any of the Lombard Police involved in this matter—Thiede, Benedicsen, Virene, Schrepferman, Pam, and/or Marciniak. None of the Lombard Police in this matter have been assaulted, injured or attacked by Gardenia C. Hung. While Gardenia C. Hung has been harassed, manhandled, scratched, and injured by Lombard Police Thiede who abused process for wrongful charges, false arrest/detention without foundation. The Lombard Police are at fault due to false imprisonment/detention, malicious prosecution which is to misuse the legal process to harass an individual, and interference with person by law in Illinois. Gardenia C. Hung was held at the Lombard Police Department for five (5) hours without any water or food by Lombard Policeman David Thiede, Badge No. 24.

I look forward to your support and assistance with God’s help. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely Yours,

Gardenia C. Hung, M.A
