Former US Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor came to Vegas a week ago to speak about how best to get judges on the bench. She has been touring the country speaking about this issue. You see, she does not think that voting for judges is a good idea. I agree for the following reasons:
--When you vote for a judge, you may not be voting for the right reasons, such as competence and reasonableness, instead you may vote because of a negative ad or name recognition.
--Judges have to beg for support when they campaign, not something we want people who are supposed to be impartial to do because then they may feel they owe favors. (i.e. judges that always side with cops because they need the cop vote at election).
On the other hand, it is nice to vote people out of office who are horrible. Nevada will be voting on a proposition (Ballot Question 1) in November that gives us the best possible judges. The candidates for judge go through a huge interview process. Three of the candidates are then proposed to the governor who must select one. At the next general election, the public can vote to either retain the judge if the judge was good, or kick him/her off the bench.
This is probably the best way to ensure fairness on the bench and to keep the creeps off!

Defense attorney David Chesnov asks the public to reserve judgment of Ms. Hilton so the legal system can better dish out justice. My concern is that Ms. Hilton may not get the justice she deserves--the same justice a poorer and unpopular person would. The kind of justice that Leandro Andrade received for his drug problem, namely 50 years to life in prison in California. If Ms. Hilton wants to do something great in this world, which she has yet to do, she will focus some attention and money on people that have been charged as she has and ensuring they get equal justice.
