OCCAM'S RAZOR

(UPDATED-PLEASE SEE BELOW)

OCCAM’S RAZOR AND MODERATION- THE SIMPLE SOLUTION

THANKS BUT NO THANKS CAPTAIN: We checked with blogger and while the Captain (or anyone) could be a guest blogger with the ability to make posts, (s)he would not have the ability to moderate comments. The only solution would be to give the Captain access which computer nerds from the 1970’s would call “root” access. We would have to give the Captain our log in name and password, and then he could act like us, including changing the password and locking us out!

As the first president Bush said “wouldn’t be prudent.”

So, being a phan of philosophy, we turned to our old friend and Franciscan Friar William of Ockham, who is known for his logical theory of problem solving. We are somewhat reaching and simplifying the theory (for our robed readers) when we say that the theory says “the simplest solution is usually the best solution.”


OUR SOLUTION: RANDOM MODERATION:

Simply put, (Occam would be so proud) the blog will have immediate postings at times we are available to quickly monitor the posts, and will be moderated at times we are in trial, on a plane, or in a bar.

All of these complex thoughts and attempts to solve the problem, and in the end we resorted to our old favorite :

lex parsimoniae.

SEE YOU IN COURT MODERATING THE BLOG.


PS: I am speaking to those few idiots who try and ruin this blog with attempts like the one we deleted recently about a judicial candidate and little boys. If you try and ruin this blog, we will find out your IP address, hunt you down, and make you handle arraignment calendars in Judge Areces and Judge Adrien's division for a year!

HOW CAN YOU HELP OLD RUMPOLE?

PLEASE EMAIL US OR POST AN OBJECTION TO A COMMENT THAT IS INAPPROPRIATE. POST OR EMAIL THE TIME OF THE COMMENT SO I CAN FIND IT AND REVIEW IT QUICKLY.

EXAMPLES: "JUDGE X IS A SIMPLETON WHO WENT TO A LAW SCHOOL THAT IS CURRENTLY A CUBAN CAFE" : APPROPRIATE

"JUDGE Y IS A CRACK SMOKING HO": INAPPROPRIATE.


THANKS.

You know about Weeds. You pull and pull and rake and spray, and still can't get rid of them.

you must live in a condo rumpole. anyone who owns real property knows that "roundup" is the only solution to a weed problem.

The JNC said...

With his legal troubles behind him (politically motivated) we are pround to nominate John Hobart Lipinsky for Judge.

Rumpole said...

This blog is formally against attorneys spraying Mr. Weed with Roundup as he wanders the hall of the REGJB. Such acts could constitute an assault with insecticide which as everyone knows is an enhanced crime in Florida. If you must assualt or batter Mr. Weed we recommend you stick to cocnut cream pies.

Rumpole said...

Rumpole does not live in a condo as he cannot pass any condo board interviews being as cantankerous and cranky as he is.

i saw the weeed in the regjb this morning. i crept behind him and sprinkled a touch of "roundup" upon the top of his head. it did not work.... he is a very stong weed indeed.

i stand by "roundup". it is a great product. i spoke with my gardner moments ago and he suggested a second treatment with an increase in dosage. i will stalk him out tomorrow in the regjb. i will not stop until i rid the weed.

you bottom feeders are simply jealous of "the frog". he has been the backbone of the PDs office for over 3 decades.he is devoted to the administration of justice. it will be a sad day when he retires.the people who demean him were probably not hired by "the frog"

Where are the "Rumpole thank you so much for devoting more time to the blog and allowing free comments" comments that we need to feed our over sized ego? Come on, you know you need us, you know you love us, you know you can't sit at your computer Mr. Stein without checking on us.

Mr. Stein hates you Rumpole. He does not read your blog. He does not have time for your trivial little expierment. And move off of your constant bashing of the Public Defender Administration. It's not funny anymore. And for the record, it is not a squirrel or a tuoppe. It's Mr. Weed's natural hair.

Rumpole said...

Dear Mr. Stein: thank you for the above comment, and thanks for readin and participatin

Has anyone seen McWhorter's invitation to her fundraiser tonight? LOL...The person who wrote it is talking about a totally different person. Obviously, Neal R. Sonnett or the rest of the people that are listed in the invitaion have never practice before McWhorter. She is surely the worse Judge to ever be on the bench. How can we re-elect someone so mean and disrespectful. People do not complain later, if she is re-elected, which I doubt very much.

Anonymous said...

Hey english major- you mean "worst" judge, don't you? And she is far from the worst, although your spelling and writing do qualify you for the title of "worseest" poster on the blog.

Okay then 5:15, who would you say is 'worser' than her?

YOU GUYS ARE BEING SILLY - THE REAL ISSUE IS WHO IS THE BESTEST JUDGE?

The bestest Judge of all time is Rosinek. The Judge with a heart.

A worser Judge than McWhorter? Rippingale. Samuels. Miller. Adrien. Areces. Kelly. Hendon.
King. (the son not the father).
Jackie Schwartz. Should I continue?
You'll get nicer treatment from McWhorter than from Bloom. Bloom hammered the PD's and defense on Muldowny about a week ago.
Win with Shirlyon!

Anonymous said...

What is the deal with Bloom recently? Is she just bored on the bench? I've always thought her to be one of the more intellectual county judges but lately she's been sort of snippy.

Anonymous said...

Bloom is smart and good. She will give you a JOA when you deserve one. She has Emas syndrome: the symptoms are being mean on the county bench because you're bored and want to be a circuit judge.

Anonymous said...

Bloom hammered the attorneys because they wasted her time. Their argument was ridiculous. That stuff would never fly in circuit court (let alone get a hearing).

I should know said...

wrong ASA head- unlike federal court all you need is a case number and a motion to get a hearing in circuit court.

I think everybody who dares to complain about Mcwhorter on this blog should just put their money where their mouth is and write Patricia Marino Pedraza a full campaign donation for $500

Regards the Pilots who got no compassion:

They did not deserve prison. It was there first offense and the better sentence would have been the max fine and a with-hold sentence of the max and I mean max probation.

We treat career criminals with slaps on the wrist, why are we sending 2-guys that yes made a huge error in life to prison. First time it’s a mistake, second time you do not pass go, you go directly to jail.

Probation you say does not send a message. It does because a max probation is better than a soft prison sentence because if they fuck up they will get prison on the max withhold sentence.

Why is there no remorse for these guys. They have families, wife's, a mom and dad.

We have become to quick to just throw away a life. Many factors should come into play at sentencing not just public pressure (and a Judge is supposed to not rule under public pressure). Does there whole life of never doing anything wrong and being stellar Americans mean nothing?

Why then should we all be good decent citizens if when at our lowest point in life we cannot cash in on all the good we have done as American’s.

We all at some-point in life will commit human error.
We all should be able to cash in on all the good we have done for a one-time break (ie. special probation conditions that put the defendant in prison for the max if they violate probation).

The problem is these pilots did not have any connection to Miami so they had no political ties that could have helped as we know has helped many of our more famous local crooks in time of need. If our judges were appointed for life just like Federal Judges they would not have had the rulings or the sentence they received. Look the district court federal judge at first trumped the charges (although reversed on appeal). That federal judge was not under national and local public pressure.

Is there no human compassion in our legal system for human error? Before you disagree with this stop and think for just a moment that maybe, you get wrongly accused and wrongly convicted do you want to cash in all the good deeds you did in life for compassion for your first human mistake.

Anonymous said...

compassion? that concept is ruled out when enter KFR's realm.

Anonymous said...

HUGE differences between Bloom and Emas. Bloom is nasty. Emas is not. Bloom can't even begin to sniff Emas' intellectual jock. Emas is probably the besterest judge on the bench. What some lawyers hate is that he makes you actually work on your cases.

emas is an exellent trial judge.

How about compassion for the folks on the plane? Would YOU get on the plane with drunk pilots?

Everybody knows that flying under the influence of alcohol or drugs is stupid, not to mention reckless. Judge Young was too lenient.

In 2006, Judge Ivan Hernandez a South Florida County Court Judge decided to ignore his duty to promote public confidence by continuing to employ his Judicial Assistant after the Judge's office was raided by the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office under a criminal subpoena. Judge Hernandez court house computer was seized in early March 2006, as part of the Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office public corruption criminal investigation against the Judge and his Judicial assistant.

The Judge's right hand and judicial assistant also made several anti-Semitic slurs against highly respected administrative Judge Steve Leifman, because the administrative Judge had informed Judge Ivan Hernandez that he was getting numerous upon numerous complaints from litigants about the judicial assistants rudeness and obstruction of access to the court.

Judge Ivan Hernandez who is fortunately up for re-election this year will be facing opposition for his judicial seat. O.R.J. urges all who vote this year to restore justice and remove Judge Ivan Hernandez by voting for highly respected Attorney Robin W. Faber.




In addition to the criminal investigation Judge Ivan Hernandez, recently had a "show cause order" (writ of mandamus) issued against him by the Third District Court of Appeal, after his judicial assistant Juan D'Arce was rude and repeatedly denied a litigant access to his Court.

Operation Restore Justice is geared toward exposing corruption in the Florida Court system. The web site is here to expose the very rare cases in which a Judge or those under the Judge's control violate the publics trust.

The Supreme Court of Florida has set a path of rooting out judicial wrong doing at all levels. The Supreme Court has released numerous opinions over the past few years making it clear to the general public that it will not tolerate violations of the code of judicial conduct either by a sitting judge or a candidate for judge. Recently the Supreme Court of Florida removed a judge from office because of violations of the code of judicial conduct that happened during his judicial campaign to become a Florida Judge.

All citizens of Florida can be sure that our highest court will NOT tolerate violations of the Code of Judicial conduct at any level. Our supreme court is not shy in expressing its condemnation of any Judge who violates the public trust by not following the code of judicial conduct.

Operation Restore Justice is under the control of a private citizen. It was due to the criminal investigation presently against Judge Ivan Hernandez and his Judicial Assistant, by the Miami-Dade State Attorneys office which has resulted in the seizure of the Judges computer under a criminal subpoena, that Operation Restore Justice was born in early 2006. In addition to complaints from numerous litigants of being denied access to Judge Hernandez court and Racial slurs by his Judicial Assistant against the administrative Judge.

Florida has some of the best Judges in the world. We cannot let a handful of bad apples destroy the prestige of Florida's judicial system. The Supreme Court of Florida through its recent opinions has demonstrated that it will NOT tolerate judges who do not follow the code of judicial conduct.
