AND...Why does the sun-sentinal write stories about a Judge that passed away...Honestly that does not fit NEWSWORTHY.

There are so many more stories that are more importent.. You all are getting lax or doing a very bad job at keeping the online site interesting.

That is only because you didn't know him. As a cop he pissed me off, but I did respect him. He was a former cop but never playeed favorites.He was a good man and deserves recognition. maybe the story about the pit bull attacking another dog could take a backseat for a minute while we reminisce about Dan, he was very unique and a throwback. RIP, Dan....

This is sad news. I remember the Judge from when I played baseball with his son's. He was a different person outside the courtroom, but always teaching us kids and always firm and fair in a loving manner. He will be missed.

This post shows your ignorance regarding the history of this area. Judge Futch is an embodiment of what made Broward and Fort Lauderdale a good place to live in the past while at the same time sometimes demonstrating the not so good elements of he past. Still, the man attempted to be fair and that's more than can be said for many of the 'jurists' of today.

I knew Dan pretty well from a social club that we were both members of. Dan was a tremendous man who truly cared about the victims of crime.He will be missed.

Judge Futch was one of the last of the Mohicans. Broward's judicial system has been on a downward spiral since judges like him started to retire.

Judge,
I will truly miss you. Your were part of the old school, and It was they that kept this country together. You were too young to go, but God Bless you. I will always remember you and the lessons you taught others.
