Threats against judges mushrooming, marshals say


www.cnn.com

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, the number of threats against federal judges and prosecutors has mushroomed from 500 in 2003 to 1,278 in 2008. It is on track to go even higher this year. There are no statistics on the number of threats against state and local judges.

This is no surprise really. It seems like every time I read the paper or watch the news, I hear where there are court cases where people are being sentenced to very long times in prison or paying ridiculous fines when these cases shouldn't even be heard (hot coffee spilt on lap, errrrr!).

Judges are bought and paid for just like politicians. Our judges need to start using more common sense when hearing a case. If they would stop siding with the people that are lining their pockets and start administering the justice they where sworn to uphold, maybe people would quit threatening them!

Darn, I thought this thread would be about mushrooms.

Judges receiving threats? Who'd've thunk?!

Some of the decisions that our judges are making these days, I would rather them be on mushrooms than to think they are really that ignorant and blind to common sense!

I couldn't agree more with you. Judges need to actually start judging, punishments and fines for minor crimes (in more than a few western countries some of these wouldn't even be considered crimes) are getting ridiculous. There is no land of the free here anymore, I had far more freedom living in China and Australia than I've ever had here.
