Even if this judge is the worst in the country, I don’t condone what happened here. There is a process for fighting back and going to a rooftop with a gun is not it when it comes to family law reform. The judges in these cases are only as problematic as the citizens who do nothing in the normal election cycles to get them off the bench.
While I don’t know if this specific man is the type of judge I rally against regularly on this blog, this is exactly the kind of action that is precipitated when the constitution is thwarted and basic human rights tossed out the window. 999 of 1000 good men will bite the bullet, but some will not. There is a reason our forefathers went to war with England. My only surprise is that this does not happen more often. The following quote sums up my speculation.
"It's just terrifying. It's very scary. It's speculation, but I would say it was the work of a disgruntled person," said Reno Justice of the Peace Harold Albright, a friend of Weller's. "Family court judges take people's children away and take property away. Those are such basic decisions that are very emotional."
