  • Judicial intimidation in Arkansas

    Sen. Jason Rapert had his big day last week. The Arkansas Legislative Council adopted his resolution criticizing Circuit Judge Chris Piazza for ruling that the Arkansas ban on same-sex marriage was a violation of constitutional equal protection and due process rights.

    Circuit Judge Mike Maggio of Conway, who hopes to rise to the state Court of Appeals, has sent signals throughout his career and, since he announced for higher office, that he's a right-thinking Republican judge, conservative and no activist.

Disgusting. Public "servants."

Re: “Conway police charge Rapert critic with filing false police report; critic sees retaliation

I suppose Mr. Ferry could have done something illegal here, but I can't figure out what it was. At first blush, this looks like Rapert abusing his position to get the police to arrest a man who is nothing more than a thorn in Rapert's side.

Re: “Democratic candidate withdraws to unite opposition to Charlie Collins

I know nothing about Ms. Kvello or Ms. Garner, but I'm glad one withdrew in support of the other. Either would be much better than Mr. Collins. He'd get my vote for the worst legislator in Arkansas if there weren't so much competition for the award. Regardless, his gun proposals alone disqualify him from voting on any law. I hope Ms. Kvello wins her race for circuit clerk. She seems to be an honorable person who puts the public interest ahead of her own ambition.

Re: “Jason Rapert and the liberal occupation of Virginia

I'd say the Lord is showing mercy on Virginia. That's why he allowed those election results. It's Arkansas that needs His mercy.

Re: “Lee's lawyer writes about executed man's last hours

Great way to remind us the people we're killing are actual human beings, not just some abstract "killer" we can dismiss from our minds as unimportant. I have no idea if Mr. Lee was guilty of the crime for which he was convicted, but I've seen enough to know we convict a lot of innocent people. Thanks for telling about this man's final hours.

Re: “Campus carry bill creates expensive, bureaucratic maze that seems likely to apply only to major sports, such as Razorback football

This whole business is so wacky it defies belief. Even more incredible is when someone gets shot who would not have been but for its passage, the gun lobby will scream more guns were needed to have protected the victim.
