Comment #: AR33
Judge Thorne is a joke. Every week he is on the bench is a miscarriage of justice. The man is not interested in innocence or guilt, he is only concerned with keeping Crittenden County Dentention Center almost at maximum capacity, or handing out probation through The "Justice" Network so he can keep receiving those kickback checks. Thank heavens he only deals with misdemeanors or every for profit prison in Arkansas would have him on their payroll. His conduct in court is despicable, he treats people who are supposed to be "innocent until proven guilty" like dogs. He demonstrates an astounding bias against anyone who can't afford to bond out of jail, really anyone not in his older wealthy white man demographic. He should not be the man handing down jail terms and fines. He should be removed from the bench and given a taste of the conditions in "his" jail. Our legal system is in dire need of some serious restructuring and for-profit prisons should be immediately taken over by the government. Humans are not a commodity to be traded around like cattle. It is no better than the institution of slavery that was supposedly erased. For shame America. For shame Arkansas. For shame "Judge" Fred Thorne.
