Today we received some interesting feedback on our article regarding San Diego’s abusive reckless drunk driver Judge Lisa Schall from a reader who has experienced what it’s like to appear in front of her. This reader has a lot of experience in courts in multiple states and believes that Schall may be the worst judge the reader has encountered. The reader believes we’ve given Schall and other bad judges too many outs and means to scapegoat others (such as the legislature) for their bad decisions and haven’t pointed out enough effective ways for the public to fight these bad judges. In my view these comments are pretty much on the mark and open up further points for discussion, so I’d like to share them with our other readers. Also, at the end of this posting are two poll questions on which I’d appreciate your feedback.

Why Is San Diego Judge Lisa Schall Still On The Bench?

People often complain about incompetent, biased, and even vicious judges. That’s especially the case for litigants cursed with enduring the injustices of family law courts in the Western world. Often the judges are causing more destruction by following bad laws as judges can’t make law on their own, aside from the judicial activists who may try only to be often overturned by a higher court. Many times the judges may be more concerned with saving their political futures than with following the laws or dispensing fair rulings. Hence we get illegal and immoral “guilty until proven innocent” rulings that kick a person out of his or her home, ban contact with the kids, and label the person as a pseudo-criminal all without a shred of evidence based upon false allegations or distortions for which the false accuser will never be punished even if his or her lies are proven. For many suffering from the wrongs of the family law courts, this is business as usual. Sometimes, however, a judge really is notably bad in ways beyond the typical judicial incompetence, selfish disregard for the rights of others, and maliciousness when displeased. Based upon public records and accounts of people who have been in her courtroom, Judge Lisa Schall of San Diego County, California, is one such judge.

Americans Don’t Believe in Innocent Until Proven Guilty

July 5th, 2009 2 comments

My writing on this topic may raise some ire, but it’s for a point. Americans have largely flushed down the toilet the concept of “innocent until proven guilty” as expressed in the US Constitution. They are willing to condemn people who have never been convicted and even never tried for a crime with labels such as “child molester” and discuss the ways such people should die with apparent glee. More disturbingly, they are willing to do this without even a shred of evidence against the accused.

Guilty by Accusation Without Evidence

Take the case of Joe Harvey Jr. of Montgomery, Illinois. He’s been accused and arrested for sexual molestation of his ex-girlfriend’s infant daughter. Here’s the whole sum of the “evidence” (minus the photograph of the accused) by which people are already convinced he’s guilty and deserves death:

Spying on Your Cell Phone

June 2nd, 2009 No comments

Your cell phone can be used by other people as a tool to spy on you and those around you. It can be used to listen to your conversations, listen to the sounds around it even when you are not using it, and to track your location and movements. It is not just fascist governments and law enforcement agencies doing this to their citizens. Criminals and even family members could be using the same spying techniques on you.
