Judge Frederic Rutberg obviously is a primary gate keeper to the revolving door of Pittsfield's crime epidemic. Is it easier for him to simply grant a personal recognizance than to rationally determine a bail amount that fits the offense ? He OR's more accused felons than any other judge. Who is Fredric Rutberg ? What are his judicial qualifications ? Is he a Berkshire Native ? Who are his political benefactors ? Was he ever successful in private practice ? What are his ABA judicial ratings ? Whst's this guy's story??

First of all, COPS ARE LIARS and THUGS, and second First of all, ALL SUSPECTS ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY in the corrupt halls of injustice. And, not surprisingly, since Rutberg became an owner of the corrupt "local" POS rag it appears that the corrupt local POS rag has become even more of a corrupt "local" POS rag. Anyway, that's the way it appears.

My guess would be that Rutberg was summoned up out of the deepest darkest most corrupt foul putrid vile bowels of HELL, where hopefully he'll return to sooner, than later!

The Berkshire Eagle wasn't much of a newspaper anyhow, but now it seems to function mainly as a retirement hobby for Rutberg (and perhaps as a tax shelter for his ultra-rich investor friends who installed him as publisher). All the new BE rhetoric about community, loving kindness, social equality, protecting immigrants, etc. is just a heap of feel-good hokum to overcompensate for Rutberg's glaring snobbery and meanspiritedness. His leniency toward criminals as a judge probably stemmed not from corruption, but more likely from a cavalier lack of empathy for crime victims, coupled with a tendency to keep things simple to minimize the burdens of case management.

The worst thing about the Berkshire Eagle is its mission to glorify David Capeless. Seems like the paper never runs out of excuses to subject the world to his repulsive image in full color, typically above the front page center fold. A real newspaper with any sense of civic responsibility would publish an expose to sweep the bum out.
