    Police Confront Broward Judge at Gunpoint

    A mix up between addresses causes the police to respond to a burglary call at a house where a Broward Circuit Judge was celebrating Easter with family.

    Luckily the Judge had the presence of mind to make sure they knew she was armed after identifying them as police.

    This story could have gone from bad to worse easily.

    Hate to think what they would have done next and what lies would have been told if the supervisor had not recognized her as a real judge.

    There's something wrong with the training.

    More than apologies are in order.

    This is what is wrong with LE in the country today. It is a mindset, an attitude that they are somehow above the citizens they swore to protect and serve.Without sweeping law enforcement reform, nothing will change and it will get worse and worse unfortunately, especially as more and more of the old timers retire to make way for the new breed coming in.


    But Carmita was downright angry. Remember the man outside her kitchen window who pointed a gun at her? Still wearing her pajamas and footies, she approached him afterward. “I said ‘you had a gun pointed at me!’ He said ‘because I felt threatened.’ I said ‘threatened how?'"

    She said other officers explained to her that they have families, too, and they want to make it home alive each night. But she says they did so in a condescending way, lecturing her as if she’d done something wrong.

    “I know no one apologized, OK? And, to me, if you want to make amends for something, you want to make peace, you apologize, you shake, you leave, you say ‘I'm sorry,’" she said. "And, you know, the cop that had his gun on me, he said ‘well, I was fearing for my life.’ I said ‘really! You were fearing for your life? Really?’ He said ‘forget it - I'm out of here.'"

    Good thing she was a judge, and not a mayor, or the SWAT team might've shot her dogs...

    So what are you saying here? Are you saying all LEOs are either misogynistic or racist and liars or just the ones that went to judges house? If just them, why? Do you know any of them personally?

    Exactly right I'd like to see apologies from those officers to the judge and her family.

    I'm saying there was: 1) a big mistake going to the wrong house; 2) a lack of restrain and self control; 3) a lack of common civility in not so much as apologizing after realizing their error. If nothing else these guys are guilty of being congenital clods, and I strongly suspect they may be more the norm than the exception.

    We'll see if Restuspt's prediction comes true and if whatever he is thinking will come out in the future is more than hopeful thinking.

    I never attributed their actions to race, though I would be surprised if that wasn't a factor. I need to go get a dictionary as I don't know the meaning of the silver dollar word you used. I confuse it with miscegenation and I don't think that is what you were driving at.

    The article doesn't say if the officers were in uniform or plain clothes. That makes a world of difference.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Why? In the dark can one see what is being worn? I don't think so therefore not a issue. Having a gun pointed at me through the window and that being all I see would be.

    I was not there and I am only getting my information from this one news article but I will comment on one thing. There was no reason for the judge to continue to keep her firearm on her person and walk outside saying that she was armed to the officers on scene. She could have unloaded it put the ammunition in her pocket or separate from the firearm if she she felt the need and then walked out unarmed. Her carrying the firearm out knowing that she was going out at the direction of the sheriff's deputies (she never said she didnot think they were LEO's) was a very ill thought out move on her part. If I put myself in her posistion I would not have walked out of that house armed. My $.02.

    HOLY CRAP, what a boo-boo dey did!!!!!!

    Almost like Innocent Man with Tom Selleck.

    Whew.
    Especially when the neighbor called the house and said ,"I think someone is burglarzing the house next door.
    And the next thing they see is Five-O with the pistol in the window.
    Scary.
