As someone who has never been involved in a court case before, I was rather expecting someone along the lines of the type of judge you see on TV: smart, calm, wise, even-tempered, knowledgable about the law, above all trying to serve justice. This image could not be farther from Judge Howell's. She has a violent temper, of which she has no real control, is incredibly rude, and has no interest in justice. Her lack of knowledge about law and judicial process is appalling. Her inability to hide her bias is shocking. Her unwillingness to recuse herself appropriately -- or even disclose that she should have recused herself -- is beyond belief. Perhaps saddest of all is her lack of interest in justice; she doesn't really seem to care if justice prevails, so long as she can pretend she "went through the motions" and can have her lunch on time.
