The Death of Due Process

This is more evidence of the authors' vendetta against judges: they weaken the judge's ability to defend him- or herself by preventing the institution he or she represents from defending him or her.

Our response:

Everyone in society faces the general rule of "sue and be sued." If we the People, as individuals, must face defending ourselves in the event of a lawsuit without public indemnification, how much more should our public servants, who are subordinate to us, the People, be held to the same standard as ourselves? Any other conclusion assumes that the People should be chargeable/punished for electing tyrants. The only way anyone learns responsibility is by being personally accountable. Even of Christ it is said, "Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;" (Heb. 5:8). If Christ had to learn "obedience by the things which he suffered," shall we expect anything less of judges?

Public defense agencies do not belong to judges. They are part of government, and, as do judges, serve the People! Under Amendment E, the People say "No" to defending judges at the People's expense. Judges must learn to be responsible!
