    I am a former Police Officer from Luzerne County Pennsylvania. I wrote a book about judicial corruption in Penna. Since I wrote my book, countless victims of the court have contacted me with horrific (and usually well documented) cases of corruption and favoritism at the hands of Pennsylvania judges. I personally blame Supreme Court Chief Justice Castille for being the biggest part of the problem. When being interviewed on this very subject he commented that the biggest critics of the Pennsylvania Courts are "either criminals or disgruntled litigants". What a moronic statement to make. By definition ANYONE who has been bitten by judicial corruption in this cesspool we call our judicial system is labeled in this fashion by the very court they were unfairly adjudicated in. Scandal after scandal, county after county, judge after judge and there is no end in sight. The attorneys interviewed and quoted for this article are either naive or liars.
