Re: “You can learn a lot in drug court

This woman has a God complex. She does not know the meaning of fair & unbiased, nor does she believe in following laws set forth by our government. What's good for one is not good for the other in her eyes. McGowan is very unprofessional and unethical. I've never seen a judge get away with the things she does inside a courtroom. She doesn't do this program to help people, she does it to feel power. Plain & simple, drug court feeds her need to cause chaos and disfunction, ESPECIALLY in the lives of people who are already struggling to lead normal lives after overcoming things such as addiction. This isn't to say there aren't people in her courtroom that don't deserve what they get, but when she relocates someone, it is more times than not someone who has followed their program and made simple mistakes. I have seen her revoke someone who has NEVER failed a drug test, but simply forgot a scheduled meeting due a family crisis but was never given a chance to even explain a thing. The very same day, McGowan lets several pass thru to the next month that have failed many of their drug tests for methamphetamines and other drugs that month with absolutely no repercussion. Drug Court can be a wonderful thing, if placed in the hands of a competent, fair, law abiding and humane judge, none of which describe Judge McGowan. She makes a mockery of the judicial system and honestly sets many up to fail, simply over personal dislike. Find someone who deserves to be in this position and who truly wants to see offenders succeed at new lives.
