Tougher judges needed

Let’s go beyond “Hug A Cop Week” and address exactly what the real problem is in Nevada County. That a judge (I noticed you failed to mention the judge by name) could be convinced to allow an individual with the criminal history of Matthew Bandy out on his “own recognizance” shouldn’t be sitting on any bench other than a park bench. It’s time the people of Nevada County stand up to the continuing liberal judicial decisions regarding drug-related offenses. You get what you vote for folks. Remember to do your homework the next election or maybe we should recall the “soft” judges … gosh we did it to a governor and if I remember correctly made a president resign.
