Let's see, do we know of any judicial figures for whom this can serve as a role model?

Well, he has recently taken up running, so I pity anyone who tries to get away from him...

As long as I can catch up in the first 1/2 mile, I've go this.   :laugh:

Seriously, why chase them?  Let them go.  They'll get caught, and the sheriff will deliver right to the bench...

Where in the world were the court officers!

And I feel like a stick in the mud, but how can the Judge be/stay the impartial arbitor when he was personally the one who ran them down?

And lastly... Man, I've got to lose some weight and jog a bit. I don't think I could have caught them lol

When I was a new prosecutor back in 1994, there were no court officers or security personnel at the courthouse.   Security was one bailiff per courtroom.  Period.  In some places, like ours, the county refused to hire more security, even with the judges screaming for help, because (1) cost too much and (2) there are often police in the building. 

As for the impartial judge, there was an ethics opinion when I first put on a robe that if there was an incident in court, the judge/magistrate was disqualified from further hearings on that defendant.  Wouldn't you know word spread and a lot of defendants started incidents to get off the docket of the judges with tough reputations, or in smaller counties to eliminate all of the judges and get an out of county judge assigned (notoriously softer on sentences). They changed the ethics rule.

^^^I thought there was a reason why Taurus named their .45/.410 revolver 'The Judge'.
