Atlanta court shootings

The latest news is about the shooting in Atlanta of a judge, and several members of his court. James Joyner makes a comment I think many of us agree with.

A disturbing trend, although one I'm surprised has taken this long to emerge. Judges are incredibly powerful and, frankly, often rather arbitrary and smug. It's no surprise that a lot of people are angry at them.

Unfortunately this tends to put judges in the role of victim, at a time when, in truth, they are more and more becoming the victimizers.

Authorities continue to look for the shooter, who escaped.

Our prayers are with the survivors and the families of the victims.
