Glad you finally see the light and realize the error of your ways.

Save your pity for someone else, b/c based on the comments posted on this site (on ANY given topic), I've got news for you, it's not me that most people feel sorry for. As hopeful as I was, it's clear you'll never admit when you're wrong, which ironically is pitiful in itself, therefore, I think it's time we end the debate on this particular issue, but don't worry, I'm sure there'll be others.

Poor Captain STILL can not read and comprehend what I wrote and instead keeps up with what he wants people to believe. I actually went to the commission website and read the disposition,the findings and the decision and that is how I gained my insight. As I stated,people(the electorate)obviously after several elections did not agree with the accusations made by "food"!A completely different and separate issue than his handling of the case in question. Should someone so desire,I can direct you to my comments where I said Dave was wrong BUT I understood his passion for wanting to protect that woman and her children!

"...he (Prince) was wrong in how he handled the case, BUT I understood why he handled it the way he did."

Am I "twisting" these words into meaning you agree with his motive but not his actions?

I'd love to know how you were able to gain the insight needed to arrive at this conclusion. Is Prince a close, personal friend of yours? If so, it may explain why you applauded his actions while making weak excuses for his conduct.

Please stop the backpedaling, the NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct ruling against Judge Prince was clear. End of story.

Don't be so modest, joe, you can spin posts as well (if not better) than anyone, and your condescending nature is unparalleled.

Captain please copy and paste where I rebuked the commission ruling? Do you attend special classes in order to spin and twist out of proportion what people post? I specifically commented that the electorate does not agree with "foods" allegations or he would have not been reelected over and over again. Should you take the time to go back to the original story when it broke,you will see that I said he was wrong in how he handled the case BUT I understood why he handled it the way he did. That way was the concern for the safty and well being of that woman and her children.

Look, you're the one who defended Prince's conduct and rebuked the commission's ruling by citing the electorate's willingness to re-elect as a guide to judge him. Prince's conduct wasn't caught on tape (like Mayor Barry's was), but if it had been, would that convince you that Prince's admonishment was warranted?

Poor Captain kangaroo can't even respond to what was said but instead picks out only a portion of the comment. Did you forget this portion of the comment CK? The NYS Commission has no other(on their website)substantiated claims to back your accusations? If you have evidence to the contrary please present it and I will apologize,fair enough?

The NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct decides to admonish Judge Prince for unacceptable behaviour, and joew defiantly supports him, citing the electorate as an accurate measure?

Voters re-elected Marion Barry as mayor of DC, too, AFTER he served time in prison after a video showed him smoking a crack pipe with a hooker in a hotel room. Yep, the electorate sure is a good judge of character.

Prince was wrong and all he got was a slap on the wrist. He'll continue his behavior until someone stops him. In many states it does not matter if the victim drops the charges. If there is evidence of a crime the Police had a "duty" to arrest and the casa can be tried even if the defendant wants the charges dropped. At the time of arrest an restraining order is immediatly issued and the suspect jailed to see the judge on the next morning.It works and reduces the amount of return arrests.

Unfortunately "food" the electorate seems to have thought otherwise on more than one occasion. The NYS Commission has no other(on their website)substantiated claims to back your accusations? If you have evidence to the contrary please present it and I will apologize,fair enough?

Unfortunately, Dave Prince’s inappropriate behavior in the courtroom isn’t limited to defendants in domestic dispute matters. He has a history of treating those that appear in front of him (and those in the audience) with insolence and contempt. The emotion in a courtroom is not supposed to be on the Justice’s side of the bench.

This one is just too good to let go w/o sharing more comments.

Your blind support for JD is well known, but defending Prince's conduct by saying he threatened to take away the victim's children only b/c he was "concerned for the mother and her children" is absolutely hilarious!!

...HAHAHA, if nothing else, you sure are predictable.

btw, were your comments directed at me, or were you criticizing the NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct for admonishing Prince?

Thank goodness we have real men like Dave that will stand up for battered women and children even though he knew he would be vilified and ridiculed! Pretty sad that some people are blinded by their political beliefs instead of concern for a women and her children.

I find it interesting that JD chose to publicly support the judge's actions in this particular case. He cites the judge's motive to "serve justice" as the reason why (in HIS opinion) such behavior should be acceptable. Fortunately, the NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct disagreed.
