Lashed and Not Heard

So, they held a hearing and didn’t hear me. People said I was arrogant. Who was there to stand up for me? Komar’s Mother screaming, being dragged out of the courtroom. My lawyer barely speaking above a witness. Thousands of pages of testimony no one read. I didn’t kill anyone. I made a bail decision about a person held for 40 days on a misdemeanor where there was no proof that he did anything. No motions made. No statement of readiness. Who was the prosecutor? Where was the defense attorney? What was I to do?

Anti-prosecutorial bias? Whats the opposite? Pro-prosecutorial bias! Yup. Listen to the bullshit bail and jail requests. Set the bails. Put people in jail. Where was the justice for me?

So, I still wonder what they wrote in the Duckfiles. How else did they malign me? How did they get to Pataki, Bruno and the Commission. On the level? Acquitted someone who produced child pornography on a stolen Board of Ed computer? Beat my wife? No way. Talk about fake news.

No one stood up and said anything for me or the Judiciary as the Governor, Mayor and DA trashed me. People wanted my job, not just my removal. No one wanted to be identified.

Anyone ever look into the phoniness of the Commision’s firing squad and see whose fingers were on the trigger?

Quirky, my ass.

One thought on “Lashed and Not Heard”

  1. Loren, As I approach age 70 I think of you sometimes. On the cases we had together I did really well. It was like you were my lucky charm. I thought you had a big ego but trial lawyers need that. I did not agree with everything you did but thought you were smart, knew the law, and I respected you. I was happy for you when you became a Judge because I knew that was something you really wanted and that you worked for it. I miss seeing you and wish you only the best.
