Judges are more dangerous to the American public than an AR-15 will ever be.

Son ‘stabs mother to death’ just weeks after judge insisted he be freed from mental hospital – against parent’s wishes

Daily Mail

A Michigan man came home Wednesday evening to find his wife had been stabbed to death and their ‘psychotic’ 19-year-old son is now charged with her murder.

David Kellen Grow was arraigned Thursday on an open murder count in Jackson County District Court for accusations that he used a knife to kill his mother, 49-year-old Robin Denise Grow, in their Concord home.

The 19-year-old’s parents had hospitalized him for mental instability for 10 days in January until a judge ordered that he be released against his parents wishes. It was 23 days later that he allegedly murdered his mother.

    But I thought it was all those GUNS that kill people.

    That judge is a moron and should be charged as an ‘accessory’.

    Judge Diane Rappleye responded, “Hey, name me one person that is right all the time. It wasn’t like he used a gun! Besides, what difference does it make?”

    Judge Diane Rappleye (D) for Congress. She’s a shoe in.

    Piers Morgan has been raving non-stop about this tragic incident since it happened.

    Sorry, a MD would be held accountable for that discharge and likely sued outside of his malpractice coverage.

    Judges get a pass.

    “Community based” mental health care at its very finest. We had a nutjob like this a few years ago who walked into a McDonalds one night and stabbed a 17 year old girl to death. He was living in the custody of his elderly parents who could not control him, he was a previously convicted sex violent sex offender that some judge put back on the streets anyway.

    But when was the last time you heard about a judge being fired for a decision like this?? In many places judges are very senior members of the local ruling class.

    Judges can sometimes make mistakes and we should accept that. However, if what the full story reports on is accurate this Judge, Diane Rappleye, has made such an egregious error in this case she deserves to be removed from the bench until a full review of her actions and decision can be done by whatever board/group has the authority to remove her from office as well a strip her protection from civil litigation. I understand that being a judge can be a pretty rough gig and I suspect that most of them are pretty good but every barrel has bad apples whether they be bad ethics or bad judgement and need to be removed.

    “… judge can be a pretty rough gig …”

    C’mon … judges are politically connected hack lawyers who lie for a living and make their fortunes off the sufferings of others.

    They flounce around in their momma’s black bathrobes and pontificate on how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    And when they do stupid shit like this, they’re declared ‘irresponsible by reason of judicial irresponsibility’ and immune from action.

    That judge is directly responsible for the death of that mother.

    If this guy would have gotten his hands on a gun , and acted out another Sandy Hook, it would have been the fault of lax gun laws , not the fault of the incompetent judge who released him.

    That judge should be charged with accessory to murder for his role in that woman’s death.

    @Tim, Hey Tim. It is a tough gig and while there is some political bs going on to get some appoinments there’s also some pretty tough hours and complex cases to wade through trying to put up with defense games and DA’s overprosecuting to cut deals. Having said that I agree that if what is being presented in the story is correct then as I said, this judge needs to be removed from the bench and put in front of a disciplinary committee and face a hearing.

    scr_north,
    Mixing concrete by hand in 100 degree weather is a tough gig.

    Toting bricks 8 hours a day to keep 4 bricklayers supplied is a tough gig.

    Hewing oak logs into railroad ties is a tough gig.

    Sitting on a plush chair in an air-conditioned building with 250 taxpayer-paid servants pretending to be a “wise latina” isn’t a tough gig.
