OUR KIND OF JUDGE
Judge McBain, of Michigan, ripped off his robes and tackled an unruly defendant, yelling "tase his ass".
Now here is what we like about Judge McBain. You get what you see. No phony impartiality. No smiling as he calculates the highest possible sentence and then tells your client what a great job his lawyer did.
Nope. We prefer a Judge who wears his true stripes on his or her robes.
Judge McBain. Crime Fighter. Tackler of litigants. Well done sir, well done indeed! (we are certain there is a space on the bench for you in Broweird).
See You In Court where we've seen corrections beat the bejesus out of a defendant; we've seen at least two criminal defense attorneys slug their clients, but we've never seen a judge do it.
