The law requires judges to be fair, neutral, impartial arbiters of the law. Based on my experience in Utica city court, and the experience of some other folks I know, Utica City Court Judge Gerald Popeo is fair, neutral and impartial -- or at least much more so than John Balzano and Ralph Eannace, who heavily discriminate in favor of the police and prosecutors and against civilains.

Jerry Popeo has integrity and guts. He is willing to stand-up for what is right and doesn't care what cops, prosecutors, Balzano, Eannace or Republican Party leaders think. Balzano and Eannace are a disgrace and should be removed from the bench. Balzano has no integrity and is a coward. He is scared of the police, prosecutors and Republican Party brass. The cops own him. He quivers in their presence. Eannace is an emtpy suit who goes with the flow. No principals, no guts, no nothing. Sometimes, he likes to play tough guy, but he's not. And he knows it. But he wants other people to think he is.

We need judges like Jerry Popeo.

Under the crime of burglary, 30.4% of arrested are Black and 67.8% are White. The Black burglary rate 30.4 over 13, divided by the White burglary rate of 67.8 over 85, gives a figure of 2.93.

If these arrest records accurately record the commission of burglaries, that means that Blacks commit burglary at almost 3 times the rate of Whites.

Using the same methodology, the figures other crimes can also be broken down:

Weapons violations are committed by Blacks at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are caught receiving or buying stolen property at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are involved in prostitution at almost 4 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are arrested for drug crimes at over 4 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are more than three times as likely as Whites to be caught at forgery, counterfeiting, and fraud, and almost three times as likely to be caught at embezzlement;

Blacks are more than 3 times as likely to be thieves as Whites;

Blacks are more than 4 times as likely to commit assault as Whites;

Blacks are almost 4.5 times as likely to steal a motor vehicle;

Blacks are more than 5 times as likely to commit forcible rape as Whites;

Blacks are over 8 times as likely to commit murder as Whites;

Blacks are more than 10 times as likely to commit robbery as Whites;

Nearly 25% of all Black males between the ages of 20 and 29 are in jail or on probation - this does not include those wanted or awaiting trial;

Popeo is a decent judge but as many people have noticed with him he can not put aside his personal feelings and be a fair judge. Been in court room when he is hearing a domestic case and you can see his blood boil. I know domestic violence is an issue we all need to watch for but he should not be allowed to hear those type of cases if he is not going to be able to set aside what happened to his daughter. He abuses his authority in those types of cases. I'm sorry for what happened to his daughter but as a judge you are supposed to apply the law based on facts not based on your opinion of the offense and seeing him preside over those type of cases many times he is not fair. So as far as being a judge I think he should hang the robe up and retire. He is not able to properly ssdi his job.
