|Judge John C. Murphy, a judge in Brevard County, Florida who lost it...|
What you will view and listen to accompanied herein is becoming a more prevalent occurrence in the United States of America Corrupted Judicial system. It has come to seem that Law Enforcement officials on all sides of the bench think they can put themselves above any sort of the once existent "Rule of Law" in the USA.
Here a so-called "judge" seems to have no problem violating law and/or others rights. What should also be disturbing is that Judge John C. Murphy seems to coerce public defender Andrew Weinstock to not allow his client a right to a speedy trial.
So-called "judges", all across the USA, use different tactics to make their job easier and to make more profit, gain and/or control for a system that has long been operated by evil. They are merely people who make mistakes and as with us all, must be held accountable.
Most of those sitting some sort of bench of justice in the US follow a version of a faith.
The day after the nasty assault, outside the courtroom, people were abuzz about the recording showing part of the incident. Some said they watched the video on a national news morning show. The video of the confrontation received substantial play on national news outlets.
Just inside the entrance to the courthouse, a framed copy of the "Principles of Professionalism for Florida Judges" hangs on the wall. First on the list: "A judge should be courteous, respectful and civil to lawyers, parties, witnesses, court personnel, and all other participants in the legal process."
All too many USA citizens are being herded up and treated far less than common cattle via the widespread CORRUPT judicial system in the United States of America. "Rule of Law" and for "protect and serve" sake, have become more like: If you have money, assets and/or we can use you in our cold, cold cells, then you're needed to fuel the CORRUPT system of justice. Shut up, you're ours now, they seem to think! That seems to be the way it is for those roped into the Corrupted US Judicial system.
How will John C. Murphy repent, be remorseful and/or be made to give unto restitution as he has surely imposed on those he cast judgment upon during his time on the seat of "justice"?
The ordeal is listed below beginning with the most recent details first and the video of the ordeal towards the end.
Since the firestorm from John C. Murphy's assault, oh so many have been calling for him to be removed.

- The Florida Bar, which handles attorney discipline, confirmed it has a "file open" related to the courthouse brawl.
- The Judicial Qualification Commission could not confirm whether it was investigating Judge Murphy's role in the incident. However, officials said it was the kind of thing the JQC would investigate.
- The criminal investigation continued, but no charges were filed. Brevard County sheriff's spokeswoman Deputy Maria Fernez said deputies "weren't able to get statements, that I'm aware of," from the judge and attorney.
- The involved attorney, Weinstock, took the day off. Public Defender Blaise Trettis said Weinstock would be out for several days.

And now, below is a bit of what took place:
|Inside the Brevard County, Florida coutroom|
Weinstock's boss, Public Defender Blaise Trettis, said the judge became angry because Weinstock refused to waive his client's constitutional right to a speedy trial. Under Florida law, defendants have the right to a trial within 90 days for a misdemeanor and 175 days for a felony.
Weinstock can be seen on the video walking out of frame toward the courtroom's back door.
"Judge Murphy has agreed to seek anger management counseling and treatment during a temporary leave of absence," 18th Circuit Chief Judge Harris said in a statement.
Trettis said he would not file charges, but he expected the Florida Supreme Court to take action against the judge.
"It's really out of character," Trettis said of the judge's behavior. "He's really got a good reputation."
