When a judge believes he knows you better than you know yourself.
Comments (80)


This vile judge isn't administering the law, let alone impartially; he's issuing his personal judgements based on his own intuitions and biases. He seems utterly incapable of separating himself from the public office he holds, as if society has merely handed over the power of the state to enact his views and whims. I found nearly everything he said reprehensible, ignorant, self-aggrandizing, damning, and severely corrosive to the rule of law.

Sooo...if I assume a rich, powerful, white guy is a sexual predator based on modern stereotypes, that's cool right?

Reshawn had to take responsibility for being at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong crowd. Gaul wasnt looking for him to admit he was the reason the crimes happened but accept responsibility for the consequences of being associated with criminals. That he himself got into trouble because of the company he kept, that no one forced him to be there when the offenses took place.

With all the different ways judges have to deal with people who commit crimes it still appears nothing works. Most of these defendants repeat the same behaviors that got them into trouble. I think that unfortunately by the time they are in adult courts it’s too late to help them.

This judge has a God complex. It isn't his job to cull the population problem nor judge women for being pregnant. I can barely listen to this episode due to his racist, misogynistic views and how he wields his power.

There's a lack of personal responsibility all right... on the part of this reprehensible judge!

season 3 episode 2...I agree with the judge. the millenials are whiny participation trophy recipients who have no respect for elders or others and feel they are owed something. they are lazy and unambitious. so thankful I did not raise my children that way and they are good respectful, hard working, responsible citizens/adults. they are open minded and respectful of others. I like the hard line the judge takes. these young people need to take responsibility for their actions.

this episode really made me kind of dislike this podcast. what is the point of it exactly. the judge was 100%correct in what he said. was it politically correct? no. but it is true. and shes going on about the drug addict as if she felt bad for is her fault she kept ending up back in court.

I think we ALL understand that there is something wrong with our court system as a nation. That said, if you do something wrong, and you dont like the way you were your probation or your time and jump through those hoops of the broken system and make it your PERSONAL GOAL to NOT f*@k up under punishment, and then? Stop DOING crime!! stay out of their way man! Do not allow yourself to do the things that get you back in their path! just stop. ffs.

if this judge was truly interested in rehabbing folks, he would route more offenders to drug court. This man is suffering from white savior syndrome with a healthy dose of hubris. His assumptioms about bllack defendants in his courtroom is incredibly offensive to me This asshole needs to stop using the courtroom to work out his control issues. he's an asshole.

I love that judge Gaul. hes totally right about people popping out kids without thinking what life will be like for those kids. it's time more people started thinking about the implications of something as serious as bringing another LIFE into the world.

While I get what this judge is trying to do, I find the implication that only a traditional family dynamic produces children who don't end up in jail highly offensive. I'm single and in my 30s and considering having a baby on my own. I had a dad and a traditional upbringing and frankly, people become parents for all the wrong reasons every day. I certainly don't think that me raising a child on my own is going to equate to me raising a jail bird. This guy is way too close-minded to sit on the bench.

im loving season 3. its nice to see a podcast with such a massove following tackle the hard truths of systemic racism especially the prevalence of such in the CJS. the more people you reach the more youll open even the most stubborn of closed minds. cant deny FACTS.
