Anti-war Judge Rejects Foster Teen's Bid To Join Military

by Dana Bartholomew - March 7th, 2008 - Los Angeles Daily News

SIMI VALLEY - Shawn Sage long dreamed of joining the military, and watching "Full Metal Jacket" last year really sold him on becoming a Marine.

But last fall, a Los Angeles Superior Court commissioner dashed the foster teen's hopes of early enlistment for Marine sniper duty, plus a potential $10,000 signing bonus.

In denying the Royal High School student delayed entry into the Marine Corps, Children's Court Commissioner Marilyn Mackel reportedly told Sage and a recruiter that she didn't approve of the Iraq war, didn't trust recruiters and didn't support the military.

"The judge said she didn't support the Iraq war for any reason why we're over there," said Marine recruiter Sgt. Guillermo Medrano of the Simi Valley USMC recruiting office.

Want to know how little justice there is in America? This pompous self righteous judge simply put her personal opinion ahead of the interests of the juvenile she was sworn to help. Help? Excuse me. Dominate and tyranize is more like it.

The American court system is populated by the most arrogant power hungry demagogues you will ever find. It is no wonder they run a revolving door justice system, freeing the guilty and incarcerating the innocent. What I don't understand is how long this judge thinks she would last if she did not have the American military standing between her and the people who would like to see her ousted from power.
