We already know Robison doesn’t like when people disagree with him, that he has no problem abusing his power, and that he follows a voice in his head instead of the evidence in front of him, so he has the makings of a religious fundamentalist. He also thinks he’s above the law to the point where he tried to free a now-convicted sex trafficker based on what he believes God wants. Thankfully, the jury cared more about evidence than someone’s supposed divine message.
Robison is expected to return to the bench at the end of the month. We don’t know if the voices in his head will make a comeback too.
I read about this. I believe he is now under JQC investigation. What cracks me up is that the jury essentially told him to fuck off and convicted the guy anyway.
Not only is the whole religious part of this wrong, but God hadn’t entered an appearance (nor did he have standing) and he had that conversation with God ex parte, ie, without the parties being able to participate. I mean, seriously, if your delusions are going to affect your judicial actions, you should at LEAST follow the rules!
Here is clear evidence of a person in power, who has shown his inability to carry out the function which he has been trusted to carry out. A clear case of religious brainwashing, which has destroyed his ability to make rational decisions.
His position should be withdrawn instantly..
