Since I touched on the problem of idiot judges the other day,

let's take a look at this out of New Jersey:
"If I had one message to give you today, it is that it is not your job to weigh the parties' rights as you might inclined to do as having been private practitioners. Your job is not to become concerned about the constitutional rights of the man that you're violating as you grant a restraining order. Throw him out on the street, give him the clothes on his back and tell him, see ya around. Your job is to be the wall between the two people that are fighting each other and that's how you can rationalize it. Because that's what the statute says. The statute says there is something called domestic violence and it says that it is an evil in our society.

- Judge Richard Russell, Ocean City, New Jersey
And this piece of judicial crap trains new judges.

Rope, lamppost, jurist...

Oaths of justices and judges

Each justice or judge of the United States shall take the following oath

or affirmation before performing the duties of his office:

"I, ------, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice

without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the

rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform

all the duties incumbent upon me as ------ under the Constitution and

laws of the United States. So help me God."

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 79 > § 1621

§ 1621. Perjury generally
How Current is This?
(1) having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or
(2) in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true;
is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This section is applicable whether the statement or subscription is made within or without the United States.

He lied when he took the oath, jurist meet jail.
