How many more lunatic idiots like this one are out there? This is purely anecdotal on my part, but I have met and known plenty of judges in my life, and I can think of precisely one that was a nice, normal human being, and not a grandstanding idiot.
The bitch judge who presided over my last divorce was nicknamed 'Cocaine Annie', and it was common knowledge among the local constabulary that she fed her habit via the evidence locker.
On the day of my divorce 'trial', I sat there for hours watching her ream man after man, taking his money and kids away, and acting like some sort of manic, proud Crusader. I knew I was screwed before it was my turn, and by golly, I was. She wouldn't even let me speak in my defense (I couldn't afford a lawyer, but my ex had one provided for her from The Feminist Women's Health Center...they did all of her paperwork for her, too, for free, on the condition that she allege I was a child abuser).
You want to cure much of this (or any) country's ills, start with the judges.
