Think the judiciary is not in need of some serious introspection?  Bryant Durham Jr. is a superior court judge in Floyd County, Rome, Ga..  The following is part of a transcript posted by The Washington Post in a hearing conducted against defendant Denver Fenton Allen in a murder case:

    Durham: I I am finding Im finding you in contempt of court, Durham said, after Allen made a obscene comment.

    Allen: I dont care.

    Durham: I know you dont. And I sentence you to 20 days for that. And if you say anything else, Im going to add 20 days for everything you say.

    Allen: F you.

    Durham: Forty days.

    Allen: F you again.

    Durham: Sixty.

    Allen: Go f yourself.

    Durham: A year.

    Allen: Your mama.

    Durham: Ten years.

"Allen responded with another crass statement.

You know something, this is going to be an interesting trial, Durham said.

"The already charged conversation continued to spiral down from there, as Durham and Allen who reportedly stands accused in the fatal attack of an inmate escalated their verbal exchange."

Granted, this defendant is indeed a piece of shit.  Think the 'judge,' however has the temperament for the job?  Think he won't be forced to answer for the above?  Didn't end there, however.

The Journal-Constitution reported:

"The judge, while provoked in the extreme, made comments that could land him in trouble with the state judicial ethics agency. He not only exchanged vulgarities with Allen, he also said it was his guess that hed find Allen guilty and that Allen would find out how nasty I really am."

Want this sitting on the bench?  An equally hopelessly ignorant piece of shit who cannot control himself?  Worse?  Properly control his court room?  Retain any semblance of impartiality?  Any semblance at all? Impartiality?  What's that?


Think the remaining eight Supreme Court Justices are representative of the bottom 99%?  Think again.  NBC reports:

"At least six and perhaps as many as all eight U.S. Supreme Court justices are worth at least $1 million, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of new financial disclosures."

Think they've got a clue?  Are not hopelessly in the pocket of the top 1%, that is, the corporate management suite and rich?  Aren't bought and paid for?  Wake up.
