Dear Mr. Albano, Thank you for leaving no doubt that you will not soon forget Mr. McCathy's rejection and that you don't have any of control over this, but you do have some control over who else gets confirmed. That sir, almost sounds a bit like there may be some retaliation in the future. Of course I could wrong. I don't know if Mr. McCathy is a fair-minded man or not. But his answer was either arrogant or worse, quite possibly frighteningly truthful. I know this is shocking but sometimes cops lie, fabricate police reports and innocent people are prosecuted by over zealous prosecutors with don't care about truth and justice, for all. The last thing an over zealous prosecutor needs is a judge sympathetic to his side instead of the side of truth and justice, for all. There are already people who believe the halls of injustice are biased and corrupt. signed, one of the innocent, and happy Mr. McCathy was not on the bench that day.

gibby I'm beginning to suspect there may be some inherited mental defect in your family. So if I understand you, you don't have any objections to an injustice system where cops lie, prosecutors swear to the cops lies and a judge gives the prosecutor a little help from the bench. You are a police state's dream come true. Let's just build more gulags and fill them up.

and thugs. Are the Good Cops the ones covering for the Bad Cops? The "Good ones" who do nothing to stop the "Bad ones" who brutalize and violate. The "Good Ones" who swear to the "Bad Ones" lies. I'd have to agree there are those "Good Cops."

What no one is talking about, not the Eagle editorials or the letters to the editor or anyone on these threads, is WHY so many members on the Governor's Council voted against McCarthy's judicial appointment? There's obviously more to this rejection than anyone cares to admit. Since all the players are members of the same political party, it could be that McCarthy didn't play ball on something of importance to more than a few.

It has been quite obvious for years that this party does not want ANYONE who make be so bold or independent as to ask questions about procedures. If you want to work for the democratic party in Massachusetts you had better be one of those who knows enough to keep his or her mouth shut. And when you do speak you say only what you were told to say. Ask Tricia...she plays the game well which is how she got where she is now.

Twice rejected by a system that has a Judge Ford and Judge McMenemy on the bench and I wouldn't be surprised if a Judge Capeless someday.

The halls of injustice are just that, halls of injustice. And the very worst of it is in the un-family court. A diabolical fraud perpetrated by cloaked charlatans who devastate and then annihilates families and children.

Although justice seems to be on its way in Bennington, Vermont with a prostitution scandal uncovered and exposed to the public in the newspaper. Of course that is a long way from the Berkshires where, who knows, things might have turned out differently. Not that there is any such thing going on in the Berkshires or I am sure we would hear about it right?

Some people have questioned what happened at Attorney McCarthy's hearing.

I have been working on a website that captures most if not all that councilors see and say.

The website:

PatrickMcCabeGovernorsCoucil.com

On of the issues is that he was accused of saying something he did not, and then chided for pointing out that there was an independent record that showed this.

If you are interested in this nominee check out his two hearings and the second meeting (I did not capture the first meeting in September because I was late)

Home to cover-ups of scandalous scandals of the respectable pillars of the community. But listen, if your little darlings get caught with the demon weed you can be sure the drug cops will bust their little ass's and the DA' office will persecute, I mean prosecute them. Little bastard pot-head drug offenders. And if your little teenage darlings with their teenage brains decide to send pornography to their boyfriends or girlfriends the vice cops will bust them, the vice ADA will prosecute them and he vows to label them sex offenders for the rest of their lifes. Anymore questions about justice here in these dark mysterious Berserkshires?

And don't abandon hope for justice just yet here in these dark mysterious Berserkshires. Mr. McCarthy may very well succeed in his bid to the bench in the halls of injustice. And then if some bottom feeder defense lawyer tries to pull the wool over the eyes of an honest prosecutor just trying to make these dark mysterious Berserkshires safer for all the non-criminal types, you will be able to sleep a little bit better knowing that there's a symthetic judge on the bench ready and will to give the DA's office a helping hand in convicting your little darling pot head perverts.

And if the threat of being labeled a sex offender doesn't scare your little darlings of sexting maybe the ADA can threaten them and gross them out with the real possibility that once their dirty little pictures are in an evidence room in a police department some creepy pervert cop can jerk-off to them, while on duty.
