The worst type of judge is the type that knows the law, but doesn't give a fuck. Giving the politically popular ruling instead of following the law. Being a coward and letting the appellate courts overturn him so he can say "it wasn't me."

I'll leave it at that.

Infuriating isn't it?

What's worse, here in WV there is only one appellate Court, the WV Supreme Court, and IF they choose to take a criminal case for appellate review (and they only took 20 in one year a couple of years ago), THEY are elected officials too, so some justices rule by political expediency rather than law.

That elected judges crap scares me to death. Thankfully, we don't have it in Hawaii.

Yet.
