Crazy Chicago Judge Reelected, Military Perverts, Pakistani Lawyers Gone Wild

Chicago, Chicago !! Cynthia Brim, Cook County Circuit Court Judge Previously Deemed 'Legally Insane,' Reelected A Cook County Circuit Court judge was handily reelected Tuesday a matter of hours before she was due to appear in court for allegedly assaulting a deputy sheriff this spring, an attack her attorney previously blamed on the fact that the judge was "legally insane" at the time. Judge Cynthia Brim appeared in court Wednesday and told the Chicago Tribune she was "just happy the people voted me back in" after her status hearing. Brim, 54, received slightly more than 60 percent of yes votes required for retention in the Tuesday election, according to the Chicago Sun-Times -- despite allegedly pushing a deputy sheriff and throwing keys near a Daley Center security checkpoint in March. One day prior to that attack, she allegedly "launched into a tirade" that lasted 45 minutes during a traffic court call and was forced to leave the courtroom. The new Pakistani ‘gangsters’: Lawyers LAHORE, Pakistan — The young police inspector came to court to present evidence in a beating case. He left with his head and lip bloodied and his uniform torn — assaulted, he said, by a gang of black-suited assailants. The notorious lawyers of Lahore had struck again, police and witnesses said. It was chalked up as yet another episode of violence by lawyers that has become common here in this seat of justice in eastern Pakistan, where cases from throughout Punjab province are heard. In a nation where the rule of law is already fragile on many levels, police officials, judges, litigants and witnesses say they have become increasingly fearful of marauding lawyers in their trademark black pants, coats and ties. “If police officers don’t submit to their pressure, they abuse and beat them,” said Sadaqat Ullah, the 28-year-old police investigator who alleged that a group of lawyers pummeled him in late September because he refused to share a confidential hospital report with an attorney in the original assault case. “They behave like gangsters.” Lawyers make final arguments in Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair's Article 32 hearing Lawyers made their final arguments Thursday in a hearing that could help decide the fate of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Allen Sinclair. The closing arguments in Sinclair's Article 32 investigation took just under an hour, after four days of testimony at Fort Bragg. The investigating officer, Maj. Gen. Perry Wiggins, will now work on a report that will recommend a next step. Lt. Gen. Daniel Allyn, commander of the 18th Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg, will then decide whether the case goes before a general court-martial. That's the outcome that prosecutors pushed for after laying out their case against Sinclair, who is the former deputy commanding general for support for the 82nd Airborne Division. Sinclair, 50, faces a litany of charges, including forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual contact, maltreatment of subordinates and fraud. He's accused of having a three-year affair with a captain, forcing her to perform sex acts on two occasions and coercing lower-ranked soldiers to send him nude photos. "Gen. Sinclair has engaged in a deliberate, degrading course of conduct where he targets his subordinates to satisfy his abhorrent desires," said a prosecutor, Lt. Col. William Helixon. 2 soldiers in Texas charged in child porn case SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Two Texas soldiers who once dated are facing child pornography charges in the alleged recorded molestation of a 3-year-old boy. Investigators in San Antonio say Sgt. Wade Allen Perkins and Sgt. Kimberly Epperson have a detention hearing Thursday. Both were arrested Tuesday as part of an investigation involving the military, local officials and the FBI.
