    What a useless individual. This judge does not even deserve to be called a man

      I hear more about this everyday, both on the news and through friends and family. It's almost as if it has become a national sport. It is pathetic that a man has to prove he is a man by beating the crap into a woman.

    He is not fit for purpose and must be removed from office.People can now question his judgement.I have had interactions with judges,magistrates,advocates,lawyers and para-legals,sad to say, not all, but the majority are real scumbags.

    Even those who cheat the most at least lie about where they're going. But to just go awol is kids stuff really. I suspect she's done it before and he's had enough to can risk a crminal record. I would donor her too if she just vamoosed like that..
