    There are so many judges within the state that are "out of control". They seem to feel they are above the law. When they hear allegations of child abuse they do not report them to proper agencies, they form their own opinions without even talking to the children. They can show extreme bias against one party, refusing to allow testimony from one party in court. They refuse to recuse themselves when asked to due conflict of interest. They lie within their own courtrooms. It is time for PA to look into this corruption---"the King‘s Bench?"
