“A day after Judge Glenn Devlin of Houston lost his reelection bid, he released nearly all of the juvenile defendants who appeared before him, as long as they answered no when he asked if they planned to kill anyone.”
Wow. Talk about losing and taking your ball home. Absolutely a savage move from the Judge as he gives a major ‘Fuck You!’ on his way out.
If you’re as lazy as I am, and didn’t bother to click/read the original link, here’s the general gist of the article:
- Judge Devlin lost in a bid for re-election
- On his way out, he basically said fuck you to everyone in the community by letting go at least seven juveniles (some charged with armed robbery) as long as they said they wouldn’t murder anyone.
- When asked for a comment regarding it, he said ‘This must be what the voters wanted.’
There’s nothing I love more than pettiness in the workplace. Specifically when it comes from a major point of power and legitimately puts the community at risk. Truly a tough act to follow for the new Democrat coming in, Natalia Oakes.
