I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that's been on the news and I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in - engage in violence.
. . . except to marvel at the balls it takes for a politician at the national level to express sympathy for a suspected rapist who committed a quadruple murder in an effort to escape police custody. Balls, my friend! Oh, and to point out that had this been a Democrat implying that people who kill judges for ruling the "wrong" way somehow had an excuse, the calls for his/her resignation would be ringing from every editorial page and talk-radio station in the country.
But mainly the balls thing. Kinda makes me want to go out and grab my pitchfork and torch and go lead an angry mob to the doorstep of one of those godless Demon-crat judges right now.
