A corrupt judge marks the depth of decadence in the downward spiral of our society. We should put border criminals on notice that we do are going to resist Mexican influence and the cult of mordida.

The State should have worked a deal with Russia to send him to a salt mine in Siberia, doing hard labor.

You reap what you sow. Maybe you should consider going to Russia.

I think you should work a deal with Russia so that you can go to the mines in Siberia. Remember you reap what you sow.

That,s for sure, which is why Barraza will now be turning tricks to get a few favors of his own. "You reap what you sow" should be stamped on to every bar of prison soap he drops for the next five years.

Well "Sarah" something tells me you have never been to a men's federal prison, and if you have and your name is Sarah, you just proved your statement to be incorrect. Maybe when he gets back he will be Emmanual Barraza. That is one drag show I don't want to see.

You can tell Mr. Barraza was a Democrat because he solicited sex from a woman -- Republican males always solicit sex from underaged boys.

Why not put them in General population? Their position should not matter. It didn't matter when they help send, or send everybody else to prison. To be raped, beaten, emotionally scarred. They used their authority viciously.
Like they say; you got to pay to play. Now they want mercy? Did they give mercy? Have they lived in a gang infested prison, having to fight for their very lives, or their children. I understand that criminals have to be punished--but, police officers nor judges are not special and deserve favor when they are sentenced. There's one judge, and that's God Almighty Himself!
