Do you guys remember the Maryland case where a woman, seeking a restraining order against her threatening estranged husband was ridiculed by a ridiculous judge. Although she had proof that he was threatening to kill her, the judge was recorded as telling her this was frivolous and she should just get a divorce and denied the order. Well, the fool set her on fire a few weeks later, almost killing her.
Now the judge was dismissed from the bench and given administrative orders the day of the attack, but in my opinion that wasn't enough. The husband was convicted today on several counts and he'll be away for probably the rest of his life. Despite that, the victim has had to suffer through countless surgeries and will probably be in pain the rest of her life.
