“If we do not maintain justice, justice will not maintain us.”
– Sir Francis Bacon, Philosopher
Connecticut is no newbie when it comes to judicial and congressional bribery such as many known names from various events. This entails examples like former Governor John Rowland, to Waterbury Mayor Philip Giordano, to special treatment of representatives and state officials themselves and family members, such as Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s son’s armed robbery charges. If you have friends in high places in the state of Connecticut, you will surely be treated differently than the populace. Is this the conception that Connecticut families wish to portray to their children and families? I for one grew up here in this great state known as the “Constitution State”, but as for politics and the way this state is operating now, I feel it is of great need in this trying time of history to start at the lowest level and work up to the head of government. As the famous saying of a wise man once said, “a sh rots from the head down.” If you can never x the lowest levels of government, you will never be able to attempt to reach the highest levels. That is the point and purpose of this website.
The article below has been found as a character reference to Judge Norko and his ethics in past years. With the current case of Jonathan Reich in regards to a complaint against him referred to this court, it is no doubt surprising that the above mentioned paragraph stands correct as to the levels of complicity to this case. As I am made aware of new details regarding this, this website stands for the very courts emblem and its writings “Truth – Equity – Justice.” It is my hope that this website upholds the people’s government and reassures the state of Connecticut that its courts are operating in the very way its traditional model was intended.
Judge Norko Changes His Tune
Superior Court Judge Raymond Norko’s pampering of a disgraced former state representative sends a disturbing message: Political corruption is not really a bad crime.
In late January, Judge Norko had justi ably read the riot act to former state Rep. Edwin E. Garcia, who had been convicted of three campaign-related felonies. The judge denounced Mr. Garcia for his “corruption, arrogance, lust for power” and for “violating the public trust.”
The defendant, who represented the 4th House District in Hartford and was a sergeant with the city’s police department, deserved the scorching. He was sentenced to up to a year of house arrest and two years’ probation.
He was to wear an ankle bracelet for at least six weeks so that authorities could keep tab on his whereabouts.
Mr. Garcia got off easy, considering his remorseless undermining of the democratic system in connection with absentee ballot fraud. Last week, Judge Norko diluted that sentence further. He apparently was no longer as bothered as he was just ve weeks earlier by Mr. Garcia’s corruption, arrogance, lust for power and violation of the public trust.
At a hearing, the judge ordered the ankle bracelet removed and then agreed with a request by Mr. Garcia’s attorney to lift all home confinement restrictions.
“With such friends on the bench, corrupt politicians have less to fear.”
