He is a self-righteous, vicious and violent monster who should never have sat on the bench.
I'm reminded of the German judge who acquitted Veit Harlan, the producer/director of the viciously anti-semitic film, Jew Suss, of war crimes related to the production. During the war he had a gypsy woman beheaded for stealing a head scarf during an air raid. The judge should have been in Spandau, not on the bench.
