I just can't picture any police force down here in Virginia publishing this statement:
The New York State Court of Appeals has done the people of New York City a great service by permanently removing Laura Blackburne, a notorious cop-hater, from the Queens Supreme Court bench.
Can't she just run and get elected again?

Yes, she can run and get elected again. Probably on a platform of: I am a notorious cop-hater and the NY Court of Appeals hates me.

The facts of the case still seem somewhat hazy. At some level, there is a question of whether people are entitled to safe passage in a courtroom, and that arrests can only be at the direction of the judge.

If we elected judges in Virginia there are a couple jurisdictions where that platform would probably work.
