Judges Wanted. No Experience Necessary. Low IQs Welcome
MYTH: In order to become a judge, you have to be intelligent and have a thorough understanding of the law.
FACT: You can be dumber than a sack of maggotshit and still be a judge. That’s the only possible explanation for why Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Robert Perry ever made it to the bench.
Two years in jail for shooting an unarmed person pointblank while he’s lying on the ground?!?!?!?! Hopefully this case will be appealed, like the Rodney King verdict was. This case needs to be decided by a judge who has two brain cells to rub together.
In case you haven’t been following this case: On New Years Day, 2009, Johannes Mehserle — a transit security officer — was called to a train station in Oakland, CA because of a fight on a train. Mehserle and several other officers arrested several suspects, including Oscar Grant, who was black. Oscar Grant was lying face down on the ground — as he’d been ordered to do — when Johannes Mehserle shot him in the back.
Mehserle claimed he thought he was reaching for his stun gun but mistakenly grabbed his revolver instead. As unlikely as that explanation is, there was no way to disprove it. Mehserle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter instead of murder. (The trial had been moved from Oakland to Los Angeles.)
The average sentence for involuntary manslaughter is four years. With a gun enhancement, the maximum sentence is fourteen years. Judge Robert Perry sentenced Mehserle to two years, with credit for time already served.
So now the City of Oakland, where the murder took place, is being torn apart by demonstrations. And the most violent protestors marched into a modest residential neighborhood to do their damage. WTF???
Now if they could find out where Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Robert Perry lives, and take their protests to HIS neighborhood…
