Which Common Pleas Judges Need to be KICKED OFF THE BENCH?

I'm trying something in Philly... dunno how successful I'll be.

I'm going to start collecting opinion and asking local reporters to single out Common Pleas judges who are up for retention in Philly who are doing egregious shit like handing out ankle bracelets like costume jewelry to repeat VUFA offenders.

I'm calling it the 5 Most Dangerous Common Pleas Judges project.
http://www.philadelinquency.com/?p=1700

Once the list can be worked out based on trial documents and news reports of the offenders---try to do a mail drop and also get press coverage to get the list of surnames out there in the public mind to avoid those buttons in the polling machines like kryptonite.


I'm airing it out now because word will get back to the bench by Monday/Tuesday that this is being talked about---some judges might WAKE UP sooner than later.

Anybody thinking of something similar in the other PA counties? Got judges out there who are just coddling criminals and think, "oh that treatment program didn't work let's put you on this other one until you reoffend"?


I'm trying to find something that both gun-owners and gun-grabbers can stand on the same platform together. It's our 2A argument to make that we need firearms for HD, but it's also our own example as proof that the laws we have now are not turning into effective sentencing and it's putting danger back out on to the street.

We don't have "gun arbitrage" where the difference between having a gun and not having a gun when you're caught doing shit is a major difference in sentencing, and the majority of folks who get locked up repeatedly really ARE worried about those sentences that go over 20 months.

It just makes sense with drug possession cases too. Junkie is caught with 9oz and faces a 3rd strike but he never carries a gun? No reason to hold him for a huge length of time. But if he carries a gun, then yes he needs to be put away for a really long time. If you use sentencing arbitrage, MORE offenders will opt to not carry an illegal firearm. It WILL have an effect.

Great idea and I commend you for trying to do something. You are obviously connected to the justice system in some way. How does the average citizen get involved in doing something similar. You might consider putting together a brief manual to guide other people in other counties/cities. It's easy to publish online and make it available. You could even sell it for a buck or two through Amazon and fund the project a little bit.

If that idea interests you, I can help you with the writing, publishing, Amazon, etc. kind of stuff and would be willing to volunteer my time.

I commend you for your efforts but gun-grabbers have already started their witch hunt.

I will commend you for your intentions. Unfortunately the justice system is broken beyond repair right now because it is totally overwhelmed.

Sentencing guidelines tie the hands of judges... mandatory minimums are just bargaining chips.... only the worst criminals ever go to jail or prison. Alternative sentencing programs are the norm....it's just broke.

We recently had two guys that robbed a fast food restaurant with a stolen handgun... the one guy put the gun to the head of a mentally handicapped employee. They got 11 months in a plea deal designed to lighten the caseload.

Broken!

Most of the screaming on Twitter and jabs coming from the lefties are going to hit the reality of a Congress that is dominated with fiscal cliff right now, and a Republican House majority which will not let anything ridiculously stupid pass. You WILL see a bunch of state action I'm afraid to say.

But what I want to do is reach out to the people who are just sick and fed up with gun violence in general and show them where they can ACTUALLY do something about it except retweet @MMFlint and sign .gov protests that don't mean shit.



It's also very sobering when you look at a gun criminal and his family in the face, in court. Very sobering.

The sentencing judge needs the threat of normal people... "we are READY to take a poster child case out of your courtroom and hang you over it in the voting booth."
