      The Editorial That Caught a Judge's Eye
      This is a follow up to our recent JNJ of January 21st titled "Judge Says That If People Cared, The Judiciary Would Shape Up" written by a Virginia JAILer, Craig Burkholder, hooded50@.... Craig said he would send us a copy of the editorial he wrote, and by popular demand, we send it to all of you. First, here's a lead-in from the previous JNJ, followed by Craig's email to us forwarding the editorial.
      Well, today they printed my letter to the editor! I was doing a painting job for a gentlemen today, and when I arrived at his house this morning, he met me with a smile and said "I read your letter in the editorial section today. It was very interesting."

      Then he said to me "Do you know what I do for a living?" I replied that I didn't, and then he said it: "I'm a judge."

      Ron & Barbie,

      I have had overwhelming response to the editorial I wrote. Would you kindly mass-mail it to all the people as many have requested copies. I apologize for the quality, but I had to do alot of cutting & pasting since it was split at the top and bottom of the newspaper page. [We retyped it for clarity - the picture of the article won't transmit]

      Judging the judges
      Forget still-shot red-light cameras on the streets. I'd rather see video cameras put to good use and placed in our courtrooms, where judges themselves routinely violate the law.
      What the public would see would horrify them, and judges and lawyers would fight no end to keep this from happening.
      Take, for example, the recent dismissal of sex solicitation charges against a sheriff's deputy (who pleaded guilty to the charges no less!) by Circuit Judge Thomas Shadrick. Do you think for one second that a judge would have made that kind of concession for an ordinary citizen?  I think we all know better.
      This is why Virginia needs legislation like the J.A.I.L. Initiative that will be on the November 2006 ballot in South Dakota. Such legislation would hold judges accountable for violating the law and other judicial misconduct, and pull them from under the auspices of "judicial immunity" which is a farce.
      If you put those cameras in a courtroom, you'd see a lot of judges straighten up quickly.
