This judge stayed until seven o'clock on a Friday night to get my case done. He listened to both sides. However, he needs to allow more bathroom breaks.

Judge Dawson Engle Obviously did not want to be in court on 3 Apr 2013. His demeanor was very rude and he seemed to see himself superior to all who were present in his Courtroom. This man needs to find some manners. As far as the case itself he seemed more concerned about making individuals feel like they were beneath him rather than actually listening to the case before him. He was more concerned about how the information was presented than the actual facts themselves.
Shawnee needs to find a replacement for this arrogant man, one that will actually listen to the case in front of him and not hold himself above the rest of the City.

This judge obviously did not want to be in traffic court today. He used his position as judge to berate and dehumanize young and old over traffic violation pleas.
A "bully" in the court. A bully that we as taxpayers are strapped with the burden of having to put up with? This guy needs a manners class. Get rid of him for a human being please.
