High Times in East St. Louis

A county judge died of an overdose of cocaine, another county judge has been arrested for drug and gun charges, and a probation officer has been charged with supplying them.

The ironic twist is that the judge who was arrested, Michael Cook, is a judge in the St. Clair (IL) County drug court.

The gun charge against the judge appears to be classic prosecutorial piling-on. I'm not saying that the charge doesn't have merit, but it smells bad. They arrested the judge and because he has shotguns in his safe back home, they're hitting him with a possession charge?

Yeah, it smells. But that's what federal prosecutors are known for.

Schadenfrude though.
See how he feels when he sees a little prosecutorial discretion thrown at his ass.

That reminds me, you probably could care less but I started a new blog that is more 2nd amendment friendly and I have a post up about the FBI investigating the LAPD SWAT division members for buying and reselling Kimber pistols for profit. The LAPD investigated its self and swept it under the rug but now the heat is on. I do believe this is going to be a biggie.


Just a little Blog whoring.
