On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge James Robart issued a temporary restraining order on Trump’s Executive Order on the temporary immigration ban. The judge, appointed by George W. Bush, said the state of Washington proved that the local economy and citizens have suffered “irreparable harm” and an injunction should be applied.
This same judge presided over a case of overseeing the reform of the Seattle Police Department due to allegations of excessive force and “biased policing.” According to Wikipedia, Judge Robart presided over a 2012 consent decree requiring the Seattle Police Department to address federal allegations of police bias. During the hearing, he declared “black lives matter.” See the video below.
The judge ultimately sided against the Seattle Police Department. According to the Seattle Times, Robart ended the hearing with deeply personal remarks, in which he noted a statistic that showed, nationally, 41 percent of the shootings by police were of blacks, when they represented 20 percent of the population.
“Black lives matter,” he said, drawing a startled, audible reaction in a courtroom listening to the words coming from a federal judge sitting on the bench. Read all about the Seattle Police Department case at the Seattle Times here.
Appears the good judge is nothing more than an activist judge. Just what the libtards needed to stick it to Trump.
