The tides are changing in San Diego. Our citizens' eyes are now wide to the abuses perpetrated by prior administrations that were recently uncovered when the voter's decided to oust the "business as usual" candidates for Mayor and elect Bob Filner. Our protesters worked so hard - and succeeded - in closing down San Onofre nuclear power plant. San Diego and national Occupiers brought to light the abuses of our system, and highlighted the pervasive police brutality that went unchecked during the Civic Center protests.
The previously apathetic and sleepy little hermitage of San Diego, run by a gastapo-like group of powerful and unethical unchecked bullies for far too long, is imploding. Now, the judicial activist judges who for so long supported the bullies in the destruction of our justice system are being targeted, too. The Emperor, as it has been said, has no clothes.
And so, my first installment of "Bullies on the Bench" is dedicated to none other than Judge Howard Shore, a man who gleefully and unlawfully has repeatedly suspended the rights of criminal defendants and figuratively burned the Constitution along the way.
