American Land of the Free: Criticize a Judge (or Anyone Else), Go to Jail?
SNIP

Daniel Brewington was not happy with the way that Dearborn County, Indiana, Judge James D. Humphrey handled his divorce case, during which he lost custody of his children, and he explained why at length in various strongly worded online commentaries. Largely as a result of those posts, Brewington is serving a two-year sentence at the Putnamville Correctional Facility for intimidation, attempted obstruction of justice, and perjury.
...
The intimidation charge related to Brewington's comments about Humphrey, which was treated as a felony because it involved a judicial officer, was based on the allegation that he "communicated to another person a threat with the intent that the other person be placed in fear of retaliation for a prior lawful act." The threat in this case was that Brewington would "expose the person threatened to hatred, contempt, disgrace, or ridicule."
...
Under the appeals court's interpretation of the statute, all that's necessary for a conviction is an explicit or implied threat of speech aimed at portraying the "victim" in a negative light.

America hates freedom.

Judges can wear silly costumes but don't wear a fucking hat in a courtroom.

I know it's unbelievable how much power a judge has. My sister was beat up by her boyfriend on xmass SHE called 911.....cops came arrested him and she got a permanent protection order granted. She goes to court the day of his trial and he gets nothing and then judge gives her 2 years of probation for defending her self. He was choking her. After the cops pressed charges on him he pressed charges on my sister for trying to save her own life. She is about 110 pounds 5 2 he is 6 3 a good 220. We have a sick system.
