Here Come Da Judge
As most of you probably know, I now work in TV news. I spend part of my day combing through national stories, looking for the important, the overlooked and the “what the hell?” stories.
Today I found one that made my jaw drop. It was about a judge that pulled a gun in his own courtroom. I was interested enough to take a look at the story and see what the details were.
HOLY CRAP!!!! The judge was John Merrett, attorney for the LMT back in 2000-2001! The guy who represented me in the matter of my videotapes during the Lisa McPherson civil case!!!
I was absolutely stunned by this. I like John a lot. He is an amazing character with a sharp and biting wit and willing to take on Scientology to boot. He is on the masthead for the legal section of XENU TV and you can see him in action during the videotaped Trial of the Clearwater 13.
That he is a sitting judge kind of amazes me. How Scientology allowed that to happen, I can’t understand. I would have thought he would be smeared left and right before taking the bench.
I hope he comes through this okay. Most people there seem to feel a judge has the right and the need to protect himself in this age of courthouse shootings. And very few other judges have the thought of R2-45 in the back of their mind.
Anyway, here’s some of John Merrett in action.
And he also makes an amusing cameo in this commercial for the Threep.Explore posts in the same categories: Legal Videos
