What Did You Do With My Judge?

• Simple Justice
A phenomenon occurs in court where a person appears before a judge who seems to be on top of their case, aware of the issues, interested in the arguments and, maybe, even dubious of the prosecution.  To a defendant, it's an exhilarating experience,  Hope, dreams of a positive outcome are lit, and the defendant walks out of the courtroom with his head held high and his spirit soaring.

Anyone who has knowledge of court cases where state power is at stake has seen gross injustice. Even though I believed myself to be a public school survivor I did not see the general principle at work, at first. It took decades before I realized that I was not witnessing just corrupt judges. It was the system. How can a member of government be trusted to do anything that would damage government? By limiting government power a judge limits himself. It is against his self interest, e.g., his career. Any organization conceived to benefit the public or a segment thereof quickly puts itself first, even at the expense of the public.  If a mechanism can ever be devised to keep the two interests synonymous we would have a civilized society, at long last.
