Reading comments on my last post, I was not surprised to see someone describe Brian House's courtroom demeanor. The descriptions given me by others who have watched this disgrace of a public official matched the latest I read and tells me that House really is not fit to be a judge.
House, it seems, takes all of his cues and direction from prosecutors, and especially Chris Arnt. What Arnt tells him to do, he does, period, which proves that Brian House is nothing more than the sock puppet for Buzz Franklin and his outlaw gang. That is pathetic, but Brian House is pathetic and is a pathetic excuse for a judge.
Wait a minute! Should I not be showing respect at least for the office? House may be incompetent and even craven, but should judges not receive respect?
My answer is this: Brian House does not respect his office and his place in the "justice" system, so why should I respect House or his office? Each day House purposely seeks to make a mockery of justice, knowing that even if he helps the prosecution frame innocent people, it will be years before the guilty verdict is overturned -- if it is overturned at all. (The Georgia Supreme Court and its appeals allies are notorious for twisting the law to fit whatever prosecutors in that state want.)
When a man or woman puts on the black robes of a judge, that person is under obligation not only from the people but also from God Almighty to do right, not to be a lying prosecutor's sock puppet or ventriloquist's dummy. When the Bible says that "to whom much is given, much is expected," it means just that. Much is expected from House, and he gives very little except what Buzz tells him to give.
He will answer one day for what he is doing, but in the meantime, one hopes he answers to the voters this year. However, I have my doubts that voters in the LMJC even care, and if they return this slice of refuse to the judge's bench, they will get the justice that they deserve -- none.
