    If it wasn't for Trump putting in USA's that are willing to go after this level of criminality, they wouldn't be doing it.

    This was approved at D.C. before it went forward, I'd bet a month's pay. At least tacit approval if not formal. I think I used the right word there. Sometimes, trying to sound smart backfires.

    But Maura is actually backing her.

    Yes, but that particular quote did not refer to Healey

    No. Government “making an example” of someone by using violence to force compliance is a rather tyrannical philosophy.

    She should be held accountable in a fair and reasonable manner the same as anyone else. Or another way to look at it would be that everyone else who also acts this way would also be held accountable in the same manner as her.

    But neither is happening.

    Why just her? Why aren’t judges and prosecutors and city officials nationwide also being arrested?

    I wander if Maura had something with her. Word is, she's got an appetite to fill in addition to her mental illness.

    This one got caught. Others are absolutely doing similar things, but are less overt about it.

    I've had someone released as soon at they saw me leave the parking lot. I was heading back to station to game plan how to set up to get him as he walked out. They think everyone is on their side, but there's little birdies on both sides of this one.

    Suspended Judge Shelley Richmond Joseph wants her $184,000-plus pay back.

    [​IMG]

    Her lawyers argue in a new filing that the former Newton District Court judge is already being punished “prior to any finding of wrongdoing” for allegedly allowing an illegal immigrant to escape from ICE agents out a basement door of the court last spring.

    "Unproven and unfounded charges by the federal government do not compel this unprecedented and serious sanction, or the lack of fair process that attended its imposition,” her attorneys added.

    I guess a recording of her in the act is "unproven and unfounded" in their eyes...

    Nope. Suspended without pay is perfect. That "judge" should not do their job until the judicial system is allowed to do theirs.

    I've often opined that this broad would have gotten away with it if she hadn't been so brazen and stupid about it. Not only is she a moonbat, but she's a stupid moonbat too, for someone who is supposed to be a judge. Think of like 48 ways as a judge you could have softly abused the system (without having to turn off microphones and give a court officer illegal directions) to tie up the ICE guy in the courtroom etc or make him leave etc. You've probably had like 20 of them already happen to you trying to bag these shitheads. This broad wasn't even bright enough to cover her own backside... [laugh]

    She most likely believed she was above the law and that no one would dare do anything to her. She probably thought she was safe here in Mass.She found out otherwise[cheers]

    There was an interview on NPR with Maura Healey claiming this was prosecutor overreach, and that the state should handle this rather than the feds. What a hypocrite.

    She's most likely a judge because she contributed to the right political campaign , not because she's a MENSA member.

    8 USC ss 1324 a.1.A.iii doesn't look like a state law to me... Course Maura wouldn't know a thing about overreach anyway.

    The state has a long history of ignoring crimes committed by favored ones (House speakers, MSP troopers, etc.). Maybe the feds wouldn't jump in if the state would do its job.

    Judge Shelly should look at the private sector - none of this "pay will continue while you are merely accused of a crime". In many or even most cases, chances are that not even a finding of not guilty would get your job back.

    That's always a possibility, but at least there will be some small satisfaction in knowing that they'll lose their pensions.

    IOW, she’s secure in the knowledge the fix is in and she will NEVER be convicted, even in the remote chance it sees trial. You think one honest attorney can even chip the paint on the deep seated corruption our court systems are wholly constructed of?
