Party Time

I know this isn't PC, but I still think it's funny:

A judge who welcomed a former fugitive back to her courtroom with balloons, streamers and a cake defended her actions Wednesday, saying that getting a killer and abuser of women off the streets is reason to celebrate.

Judge Faith Johnson threw the party Monday upon sentencing 53-year-old Billy Wayne Williams to life in prison. Williams, who previously served time in prison for killing his wife, went on the lam a year ago while on trial in Johnson's court on charges he choked his girlfriend until she passed out. He was convicted in absentia of aggravated assault.

"A full year later, he was recaptured, off the streets, and no longer a community threat. And, yes, I threw a party," the judge said in a statement.

You Said

Well, since he WAS found guilty, I'll take a corner slice, please. :-p

I agree, its funny and it deserved being celebrated.

I'm glad the judge didn't get into any trouble over it. I hate to see when the rights of the guilty are upheld more than the victims.

To hell with PC. This just shows an incredible amount of style.
