That's right Judge, Deny, Deny, Deny! He's just like that other Irish Scumbag, Thomas Ryan who stole milk money from the poor suburban school district he served. Both showed no remorse for their crimes. Enjoy !

This seems to be a sympathy piece written for this guy. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

Do the crime; do the time.

he done his time, although it sounds as though he didn't like it much. Now it is time to enjoy what little is left of his retirement.

So many fools...Not one of you who is slamming the judge is a model citizen. And I'm certain that people like theoutlaw and Real Police, bigots that they are, are the cream of the crop. There is no such thing as "paying your debt to society" because people like Real Police never let it go. He served his sentence, let him live in peace.
The States Attorney's in this county are about as corrupt as anyone can get. While their corrupting may manifest itself differently they are still corrupt. If you need an example you need look no further the Joe Birket. Nothing has changed, they're just getting better at being scumbags.
Good luck to you Judge.

Every now and then I will read about a lawyer who has not lost a case in years, and once in a while even in decades, or I will read about this or that lawyer who has made this or that exclusive list, and such as being a "Superlawyer" or who is considered one of the One Hundred Best Lawyers in a large metropolitan area or even in the entire United States.

However, my theory is that most of those so called superlawyers are not the super skilled practitioners and great geniuses they portray them as, but instead they win many of their cases due to their being the very sleaziest members of the legal profession, and with their sleazy practices including regularly paying under the table bribes to judges, court clerks, and everyone else.

In this Hogsqueel Animal Farm Society I am very much a model citizen. Didn't you know the corrupt are always into denial and I feel they should be treated exactly how they treat the innocent, good model citizens, and exploiting those who have undergone great tradegies. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. One can see how a number of them get great enjoyment out of their sadistic activity. My memory has not faded over a period years and I resent anyone who demands to be able to brainwash or take control.

As for some of us for years we have never known from day to day if we will live or die. But, don't worry those in the ivory tower claim to be you hero. In the story of the three little pigs there were no glass houses or did the wolf live in a glass house? Beauty is like a glass rose. One false move and it shatters. In spite of al the insanity it is quite comical how they huff, puff, and bluff and they do not even have any case in which to present. We see how the corrupt and conspiring think they can use scumbag witnesses who come from the bottom of the barrel. How these scumbags are not beneath anything including ice pick intimidation, threats, stalking, harassment, false reports, false petitions, "Shell Games", continuous cover-ups of covering up criminal activity, back dating legal papers, brainwashing, etc. "Taxation Without Representation"

Racketeering, Money Laundering, Enterprise Corruption, etc. runs rampant in the State of Illinois. We see how the corrupt and conspiring demand they are "Untouchable" and can do whatever they want. The corrupt also feel they can brainwash victims/targets that they cannot use lawyer or even have any support outside of them.
"Shell Game", Deny, Deny, Deny
They suffer from MeItis and they do not have any qualms about bankrupting victims/targets/taxpayers, constantly destroying their lives,etc. They demand that their victims/targets should be their robots, puppets, and "Zombie". They do not have any real working solutions to the problems in society. In fact, they are very much part of the problem.
High Extortion- when one creates a problem and then demands to be able to charge the customer for a scumbag solution. He/she who gives up his/her liberty or rights for false protection gets neither. I refuse to take a person for his/her word. I look at they are doing in reality. They can huff and puff all the want. I know that within my heart and mind is the truth. I have learned that I can count on my knowledge that I have acquired over all these years. Reality shows us that just because someone is a judge does not mean he can be trusted to uphold the law, go after law breakers, or that he does not have skeletons in his closet.
