For the Love of the Game

Rushed today because I'm on deadline (yeah, I'm still trying to hold down a newspaper job myself), but I have to give the Story of the Day to Sara Olkon for her story about Tank Carter, a man who was sentenced to five years in prison for missing a court date to watch his brother play in the Super Bowl. Judge Stanton Kaplan obviously lost his mind on this ruling, but Tank says it was worth it. I couldn't agree more. He got to party with Snoop Dogg and that alone would be worth five years of anybody's life. You all know Snoop, he's the guy from that Soccer Dog movie and the Chrysler commercial. I think he used to rap, too.

I sense, perhaps, a bit of Super Bowl envy on the part of Stanton Kaplan. Can you picture it? Here you are, a pillar of the community -- a fucking judge, for God's sake -- and this scumbag, habitual criminal sat on the 50-yard line of the Big Game? You've done everything right in your life -- went to the right school, met the right people, did the right things, forswore all the vices that drag men down -- and here this thug goes to the Super GOD DAMN FUCKING Bowl?!

Five years is too good for him!

At least, that's what I may think if I were a tight-assed prick like Kaplan. In 1994, he ordered a defendant to be gagged with duct tape.
His harsh rulings have been overturned by appellate courts due to the judge's biases -- particularly in a case where he denied a Syrian man bail when the fellow was only held for making threats.
He also has a history of overriding jury recommendations to mete out harsher penalties, as when he threw out a 10-2 jury recommendation of life in prison for Raymond Thompson and sentenced him to death -- not that Thompson didn't have it coming, but still...

In any case, this is just another example of an overly harsh fascist nut of a judge acting in an overly harsh, fascist-nut manner.

I thought the lede was a bit flip for a pretty serious subject.

Did you happen to catch "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" last night? Judge Kaplan was one of the nominees for the World's Worst Person segment for the same thing.

He missed his court date about a month before the Super Bowl so he wouldn't be in jail during the game.
