A Very Scary Idea
It's funny yet creepy to watch Judge Clouse parade around the Courthouse like he is some paragon of virtue.
After all, this is a guy who brings a date to a viewing.
(Yes, Judge, we saw you and she-who-shall-remain-nameless-because-she-is-a-nice-person-and-we-don't-want-to-embarrass-her at Kathy Coulston's husband's viewing back in the spring.)
However, there is something extra-creepy-but-not-funny about Judge Clouse's treatment of Beatty Chadwick. We didn't know much about this until the recent spate of articles in the Daily Slime, according to which Chadwick has been in prison for ten years because he won't tell where some money is, although maybe he really doesn't know now even if he did know ten years ago.
When someone of questionable virtue like Judge Clouse can hold you in prison for life because he doesn't like your answer to a question, that's scary.
