This may be a good example of the fact Judges don't have to answer to anybody. Many bios on the various MA websites are the same. Once in as a Judge, human nature takes over and it's out of hand like any other organization that grows old and resolute-stale. It's as old as government, but does not have to be this way.

As stated in the video [Deconstructing America]
"Judges gave themselves immunity, as long as it was not malicious or corrupt.....A few years later, the court took the malicious or corrupt away."
