no one takes blame for thier action,
just another high rank guy pushing threw the system.
lets use the officers death for reason not to be prossecuted..
no witnesses no crime....
tell that to all the familys who have either been put to jail for the same offence or lost a loved one to a drunk driver.

I knew it, I knew it...as soon as I read the story about the death of the arresting officer, I figured either "Judge" Hall or his attorney's would try to use it as a reason to get the case dropped! No way! and if the Judge in Kane County dismisses the case, just being one of the "good old boys" I'd say! There was another officer on the scene, and witnessed the arrest and the circumstances - why isn't his word good enough? Don't do it, don't let him get away with this!

We're so sorry he died.... can you drop the charges now?

Can a JUDGE busted for DUI get off because the arresting officer dies? Tune in to find out.

Appalling behavior.

The wheels of injustice were already in motion for Judge David, "DON'T MACE ME BRO!", Hall. All courtesy of the, "NIXON-LIKE", vanishing tape evidence debacle. Officer Goldsmith's death, while flukey in it's timing, was a sad and unfortunate fact of nature. My condolences to all that were a part of his shortened life. This type of shamefull and manipulative waste needs to stop! It makes it very difficult for us, "NORMIES", to maintain any respect for the law and it's agents. "WE THE PEOPLE", need a plumber to fix the pipes so we can finally flush all of this type of WASTE! JUSTICE FOR ALL AND JUSTICE FOR JUSTICE HALL! As Picard would say,"Make it so!".

I agree, He gets NO special treatment. Just because his a "Judge". BIG Deal. Treat him like any other human. Did he have any special treatments for others. He needs to do time in jail and be put in probation. No Break for you JUDGE! My condolences to officer Goldsmith.
Punishment for Judge HALL.

I think Judge Hall should be punished, We need JUSTICE, Don't drop case. I punishes those who get stopped by DUI's but he want's his dropped. NO WAY! There was another officer on the scene, and witnessed the arrest - isn't his word good enough? I hope this Judge in Kane county will do his job and process the charges. NO special treatments. If this is the case drop all DUI cases. Do JUSTICE FOR LAKE COUNTY. Send Judge HALL to JAIL.

Some old story...whether is be a politician, a judge, a Hollywood starlet, or a sports star...If you have the money, and power (and connections) then you are able to get off virtually unscathed. Just sickening...us commoners are tired of this crap.

VERRY TRUE, if you have the MONEY. You have the Power. Good job Judge Hall. Show them the GREEN. Youíll be of the hook soon. While youíre at it try to dismiss all other charges for the Lake County DUI Violators. Youíre the Big shit with the powers.

Not a reason to drop the charges. Hopefully they won't be. Maybe they will "make an example" of him.

Why not,...... it could happen

Don't you all see what really happened. Forget about the fact that Mr. Hall is a judge. He was treated unfairly by a police officer. I mean where is the mysterious video tape that every police car has on it but the two radio cars that showed up the video wasn't working? hmmmm. Sounds like if they showed the video in court Mr. Hall would proberly have a law suit. Next, what Dumb Ass Cop pepper sprays a Judge? Even if Judge Hall was drunk you have to be pretty stupid to pepper spray a judge. Chief Judge of lake county.

I believe that the honorable Judge Hall is entitled to a fair trial and he is entitled to ever right that the average citizen is entiteld to. And if a procedural error was made then the blood draw should not be inadmissible.

Any other person not mentioning nationality (Hispanic or Black). No matter what profession you have. DUI is a DUI Judge! You have no special rights. When you where prosecuting a person with a DUI. Did you any kind of sympathy. To do ANY KIND of investigation before prosecuting them. You want to be treated DIFFERENT. Knowing that you are on that same boat. You want to be treated SPECIAL. Letís get a red rug for you. Your heinous, just because youíre WHITE or letís say, have some king of connections in the county. Come on BE a MAN and face the consequences. DUE your TIME. OR should I applause your nonsense and put you in an ALTAR as a sample of a Saint. Lets call you Saint Hall from know on. What kind of citizen you are and the example you are showing us in the county of Waukegan.

I agree, He deserves time. Let him learn what it feels to be in for a DUI. He has no Sympathy for others when he prosecuted others. Letís just have everyone appeal it and get away with it All. Thatís the example heís showing us in the County of Waukegan. Good example Saint Hall. Big Cowered. Iím White and I think everyone should be treated the same. Not on Color nor nationality White/Black or Hispanic. We ALL have equal rights. We might not have connections like you Saint Hall. I say if a white trash gets a DUI. Let the white trash pay the consequences (Saint Hall).

What is going on in Kane County? Isn't this the same County Court System that the former Mayor of Green Oaks and Lake Republican Chairman got off on his Child Pornography Charges by Judge Golden????? Oh, that was after the famous Lake County States Attorney (featured in To Young for Justice Series by the Waukegan News Sun)dropped all the criminal charges against the upstanding Tom Adams!!! Lake County sends all there corrupt officials to Kane County for Justice (Corrupt Style of Justice).....Hmmm... Isn't it the same Kane County Corrupt Court system that charged an innocent mother with a 25 Million dollar bond in family court? Kane County and Lake County need top investigators from Patrick Fitzgerald's office to elimate this corruption once and for all!!!! Justice is for the innocent to be protected and the guilty to be charged but when you go to Kane County Justice is corruption...
