Jonathan Turley has been rightly ranting for some time about judges who come up with novel sentences meant to humiliate the convicted. This risks making the judiciary a laughing stock. Recently he heighted this disgraceful display by a judge in the Cleveland Municipal Court system.
She wants someone to wear a sign around his neck that she made herself and when he did not, she piled on further punishments including 90 days in jail, with the threat of repeating it.
Watching her speak, you can see that she views the legal system as a vehicle for her grandstanding. Her sarcasm and snarkiness is unbecoming. There is also a hidden class element involved. You can bet that she would not treat a well-to-do defendant this way. They and their lawyers would have appeals and complaints to the bar association even before she finished speaking.
How she got elected beats me but she is a poster child for the case against the election of judges, a practice that strikes me as bizarre. But there surely must be some mechanism for the reprimand or removal of such judges.
A necessary qualification for a judge is a judicial temperament and this judge does not have it.
