A Texas judge ousted in Tuesday’s midterm elections spent Wednesday morning releasing nearly all of the juvenile defendants who came before him — and didn’t show up to court Thursday.

Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin lost his re-election bid to Natalia Oakes as Democrats swept the county’s juvenile judicial offices.

“He was releasing everybody,” public defender Steven Halpert told the Houston Chronicle. “Apparently he was saying that’s what the voters wanted.”

    As much as I don’t want them released… well… they voted for mobs, and mobs they shall have. AFAIK, they aren’t off the hook, they are just back on the street until their court dates, IF they show up..

    That, folks, is known as a serious bitch-slap.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right….however, in this case, he is just giving the voters what they appear to want….

    “Devlin asked each of the defendants he saw whether they planned to kill anyone upon their release…”

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
