    Nope. Most of them have hired body guards since Fox News and others started lashing out at "Liberal Judges", naming them so that their Fundie Cabal could start campaigns of hate mail which threaten violence.

    These are judges from all over the country, including places untouched by organized crime.

    ^ Of course some are targeted for the reasons you describe, but that is certainly not the only reason. Did I say that none were hiring guards for the reason you listed? No. I said 'many' hire them for reasons pertaining to their cases.

    Don't believe it? Ask Woody Harrelson's dad.

    Judges and attorneys have long been subject to this. The threats have risen in a large part to the internet, because while some may never actually send a threatening letter they'll get on the internet and make threats.

    And organized crime is all over the US, hardly anywhere is 'untouched', the term doesn't apply only to the 'mafia'.

    Only three federal judges have been killed in job-related crimes - one in connection with a drug case; one by a person angry that his conviction hadn't been overturned; and one by the father of a plaintiff in a dismissed sexual-discrimination case. Joan Lefkow's story is a sad one, and the guy was a right winger, but she also presided over his copyright infringement case- So, did he shoot her family because he was a right winger, or because he was unhappy with the verdict?

    Everyone is so afraid. I'm glad I'm not, I'd really hate to give some semi-literate nutters that much power over me. My father raised us not to fear these people.

    This is an off-shoot but I had NO idea about Woody Harrelson's dad. And now I'm confused about something: he apparently claimed to have shot Kennedy? And if it isn't a mistake on Woody Harrelson's Wiki page, his mother's maiden name is Oswald? What's up with that- any idea?

    ^ He's long been associated with the conspiracy theories- was said to resemble one of the '3 tramps'. Sometimes he denied it and sometimes bragged about it.

    He was a hit man for hire, and a drug trafficker, in Texas and California organized crime circles. He had been convicted of another murder for hire before Judge Wood.

    I know about his mom's maiden name, but nothing I've ever read makes a family connection. It's not that uncommon of a name, I guess it's just a coincidence. If there was a link, I'm sure it would have been reported somewhere, especially with the role Harrelson is suspected to have played in the JFK assasination.

    I'm still amazed he made it down Constitution Avenue that day. I thought they'd shoot him right after the inauguration.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!
