Kentucky Judge Accused of Threatening Police Is Suspended

June 18, 2015  | 

An eastern Kentucky judge accused of a long list of belligerent behavior including name-calling, unethically presiding over cases, and threatening a "bullet in the head" for the next police officer to pull him over has been suspended, reports the Associated Press.

In all, Pike County Circuit Judge Steven D. Combs faces 10 counts of misconduct. He was temporarily suspended with pay Tuesday pending a final ruling by the state's Judicial Conduct Commission. Another hearing will be held, and the commission's options could include removing Combs from the bench, suspending or reprimanding him.

Get that a**hole off the bench. "A bullet to the head", is reason enough to get this p.o.s. ooutta the court room.

Sounds like this judge might need a mental health eval but then again there could be something deeper here that we aren't seeing.

Sound like he needs to be taken off the bench. Its high time that judges are held to the same type of standard that they hold Law Enforcement to, and do so while sitting in a safe court (due to LEOs) and have hours and days to make decisions, unlike us. Now only should he be removed from the bench, but his Law license should be revoked, just as our certification would be if we said and did those things. Judges need to realize that they are not Gods of Law, you work for the people just as we do and a Law Degree and or a black robe does not change that. Hope his "Honor" gets what he deserves, unemployment!.
