The audience was large, it included numerous family members, parents and other public devastated by the corruption in our judicial system of Minnesota. The behavior of the judges present who attended from the Minnesota District Judges Association (MDJA) was not received well by those in the room. These judges sat out of the way of the video camera, yet the public sitting close to them witnessed haughty and arrogant behavior about numerous issues brought up during the hearing. When the mention of the `bribes` allowed for judges in Minnesota came up these two judges laughed, smirked and shook their heads. Their arrogance was insulting to the family members and those in the room that have had their children, families and entire lives ruined as a result of this very law. This law has devastated the state of MN more than the public is aware. For grown men who represent the judicial system of Minnesota at the State Capitol and behave this way during a hearing regarding such important issues in our courts today lacks professionalism, class and sensitivity.
During the hearing one of these judges from the MDJA sat front and center answering questions and defending the judicial system and the laws in place causing such horror in our courts. This particular judge was defending the `incumbent` mention on voter ballots. He defended this issue by stating the public needs to know who is currently holding seat as judge – and that is known to the public by the incumbent mention on the ballots. He also stated that the public can be made aware of a judge with a bad reputation – and by the incumbent being on the ballots – the public can know to not vote for that particular judge.
A Minnesota senator replied the obvious, `I will bring up a case in Carver County… a recent case…` The senator spoke of the case where a citizen in Carver County is being charged for a blog outing a particular judge`s behavior. The senator mentioned that it seems a judge will simply order his behavior to be removed from public view and charge money for it if it is not, so this argument presented today is not really the case, is it?
In response to the mention of the outrageous order from Carver County this judge replied, `I find that hard to believe`
About 5 minutes after this `unbelieving` judge got off the hot seat a gentleman nicely handed him the order signed by judge Richard Perkins from Carver County charging money for a blog. This unbelieving judge`s face flushed beet red. This same court order from Carver County removes legal and sole custody of small children from a loving mother – no law or reason supporting any ruling on the order.
Another one of Minnesota`s terrific senators stated during this hearing, `I respect the people more than I do our judicial system` This was a reality check as to why we were gathering: for the people. Not protection of a judicial system which is currently embarrassing the state of Minnesota.
Sen. Michael Jungbauer, Sen. Scott Newman and Sen. Dave Thompson really stepped up for the people of Minnesota.
