"If the judges interpret the laws themselves, and suffer none else to interpret, they may easily make, of the laws, [a shredded] shipman's hose!" - King James I of England, around 1616.

“No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,” Justice Sharwood in Ex Parte Steinman and Hensel, 95 Pa 220, 238-39 (1880).

“This case illustrates to me the serious consequences to the Bar itself of not affording the full protections of the First Amendment to its applicants for admission. For this record shows that [the rejected attorney candidate] has many of the qualities that are needed in the American Bar. It shows not only that [the rejected attorney candidate] has followed a high moral, ethical and patriotic course in all of the activities of his life, but also that he combines these more common virtues with the uncommon virtue of courage to stand by his principles at any cost.

It is such men as these who have most greatly honored the profession of the law. The legal profession will lose much of its nobility and its glory if it is not constantly replenished with lawyers like these. To force the Bar to become a group of thoroughly orthodox, time-serving, government-fearing individuals is to humiliate and degrade it.” In Re Anastaplo, 18 Ill. 2d 182, 163 N.E.2d 429 (1959), cert. granted, 362 U.S. 968 (1960), affirmed over strong dissent, 366 U.S. 82 (1961), Justice Black, Chief Justice Douglas and Justice Brennan, dissenting.

" I do not believe that the practice of law is a "privilege" which empowers Government to deny lawyers their constitutional rights. The mere fact that a lawyer has important responsibilities in society does not require or even permit the State to deprive him of those protections of freedom set out in the Bill of Rights for the precise purpose of insuring the independence of the individual against the Government and those acting for the Government”. Lathrop v Donohue, 367 US 820 (1961), Justice Black, dissenting.

"The legal profession must take great care not to emulate the many occupational groups that have managed to convert licensure from a sharp weapon of public defense into blunt instrument of self-enrichment". Walter Gellhorn, "The Abuse of Occupational Licensing", University of Chicago Law Review, Volume 44 Issue 1, September of 1976.

“Because the law requires that judges no matter how corrupt, who do not act in the clear absence of jurisdiction while performing a judicial act, are immune from suit, former Judge Ciavarella will escape liability for the vast majority of his conduct in this action. This is, to be sure, against the popular will, but it is the very oath which he is alleged to have so indecently, cavalierly, baselessly and willfully violated for personal gain that requires this Court to find him immune from suit”, District Judge A. Richard Caputo in H.T., et al, v. Ciavarella, Jr, et al, Case No. 3:09-cv-00286-ARC in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Document 336, page 18, November 20, 2009. This is about judges who were sentencing kids to juvenile detention for kickbacks.

Jeff Bowie is reportedly conspiring with Richard Northrup to take down Delaware County Commissioner of Social Services in retaliation for reduction in pay?

A witness recently overheard how investigator in Delaware County District Attorney's office Jeff Bowie was bragging how he is planning with Richard Northrup to indict Delaware County Commissioner Dana Scuderi-Hunter 

for a felony, in retaliation for Commissioner's plan to put Jeff Bowie into a position where he would lose $24,000 in pay, and that he is digging into her past and already found something in 2004 that he is going to use against her, together with Richard Northrup, to indict her for a felony.

Apparently, Barbara O'Sullivan is not the only victim of fabrications of the Bowie family.

And, since Richard Northrup appears to be "helping" in both cases, I wonder, what evidence does Jeff Bowie hold over Richard Northrup's head to have his compliance in Jeff Bowie's schemes of retaliation?

Jeff Bowie, according to my research, was reportedly 

If lack of credentials is the reason why Jeff Bowie is about to be demoted in pay, then Dana Scuderi-Hunter is doing her job, and should not be taken down by crooks under the guise of doing their official duties.

Moreover, Jeff Bowie can cost Delaware County and its taxpayers dearly in liability, since all of his arrests and investigations, including undercover investigations that he was engaged in (as the Appellate Division 3rd Department found in 2007), may be illegal and the County can be sued for allowing uncredentialed individual to conduct undercover investigations and effect arrests. 

The witness also overheard Jeff Bowie's say "if I have to go, Dana will go with me".

I wonder if Richard Northrup is afraid that the same rule will apply to him, if he steps out of line with Jeff Bowie and starts doing his job honestly.
