Keith Henson <[email protected]> spake thusly: (some snippage)
: An obviously sensitive Judge Williams said that he was not
: concerned about what the press might say about him, he had been in
: trouble before, and had survived reelection. He did not have to
: face the voters again (because he will retire) He said he is now
: in his "federal term" and can behave like a federal judge.
In other words - "I don't have to pretend to care what the general public thinks of my actions, because I no longer have to kiss their butts to keep my job. I'm gonna be gone soon anyway, so who gives a fuck about justice or the law - what are they gonna do, FIRE me? It's time for me to use my power and position to help my friends and allies abuse the legal system, sure in the knowledge that nobody can do anything to stop me."
What a pathetic spokesman for American Law.
: Ironically, the Williams praised Graham as being erudite, polite,
: and an excellent lawyer, who crafted compelling arguments, and who
: could be quite poetic. I.e, if Graham would just behave and not
: upset the cult, things would be alright.
And therein lies the core of this situation. Graham has been professional and polite - if this had been any other case, things would have been fine. But the Judge isn't about to let a little thing like the american system of law get in the way of his snuggling intimately with the krminal kult. He's perfectly willing to stand the law on it's head to let the cult commit crimes in his courtroom. They're his buddies. So he whines and postures about how people shouldn't be asking his friends to stop breaking the law.
: Judge Williams expressed his disgust that court matters were being
: posted on the net, he made the representation that he had never
: surfed the net for anything to do with these matters. (Hi Judge.)
I thought he didn't care anymore what people thought. Why should he care that the whole world is watching him dance like a trained dog?
