A few weeks ago a Lebanese woman who lived in Tarrytown, NY, went to court to resolve a rather ordinary traffic ticket dispute. The assface of a judge berated her with
Anissa Khoder told The Journal News that when her name was called, the judge asked if she was a terrorist. She said she was offended but kept that to herself.
She claimed that after giving the judge her explanation for why the tickets should be dismissed, “He said something like, ‘You have money to support the terrorists, but you don’t want to pay the ticket.’ I could not believe I was hearing that.”
She collapsed but recovered as officers took her outside. Both tickets were dismissed.
I believe there was a pit thread about it a while back, but I couldn’t find it.
It seems that after filing a complaint about the incident NY Commission on Judicial Conduct, the unclefucking bastard
Good for her, I say. My faith in our state government is a tiny bit restored today.
They still have a long way to go, of course.
Damn straight he was an ass but… ummm… again, why did she “collapse”?
Because, lieu, that’s what women do when something not-nice is said to them.
The woman is 46 years old; if she had a heart condition or low blood-pressure, it’s understandable if she collapsed after being grossly offended. If you’ve ever been insulted so badly that your blood boils, you know what I’m talking about.
Well, I’ve been insulted equally as badly on a few occasions, but I never collapsed. I think its perfectly reasonable for
lieu to ask that question, especially as there was no mention of the woman’s heart condition in the OP.
Yes, the judge was a complete asshat, btw.
I don’t know if she had a heart condition or not, I was just speculating.
If I was in court, surrounded by people imbued with massive legal authority to smack me down with, and was suddenly accused of terrorism when I’d been prepared to deal with speeding at the most, I think I’d keel over too. It’s one thing for some ass to flip you off over parking, it’s totally another to have a bunch of cops accuse you of serious crimes.
Heh. He says he thinks he was “probably kidding”. Probably he was being a pompous jerk.
Seriously? You think you would actually collapse in that situation? Maybe I’m in the minority, but it would take more than that to make me collapse.
Example: If someone told me a close member of my family had just been killed, that would probably do it. I’m sorry but a judge accusing me of funding terrorism wouldn’t have that effect.
The issue of her collapsing isn’t really relevant though. The important thing is that the ignorant judge resigned.
Maybe she took lessons in feminine fainting from
And I say; Good riddance of bad rubbish.
I can only wonder how many other case outcomes were tainted by this bastard’s prejudical views. May the fleas of a thousand syphillitic camels infest his crotch on a hot summer’s day.
Michael Ellis, it’s called “the vapors.” Now don’t make me get grammar nazi all over yo’ sorry ass.
I’m the grammar Nazi round these parts.
Michael, you can tell us now. Was that really a stick up there or was it just the way you were holding the spear?
It was the way I was holding the spear.
Spear? What… like asparagus?
smashes lieu with a huge hammer
And maybe knowing that foreigners suspected of being terrorists can be held without anyone being told they’re being held was kind of a scarey thought.
And this is where your argument falls to the ground. The huge hammer is only appropriate for the crocodile. An unsuspecting
lieu should have had the Ten Ton Weight dropped upon him instead.
