There are a lot of stories where citizens lose their marbles and even Lawmasters but now we have one where a Judge does. We have seen Judges turn criminal before but this looks like a clear case of Futsie. What is telling is that this is apparently so common there is a code and a procedure for it. And rather than shipping them off to Titan they get some pinpoint brain surgery and are back on the streets again. Like the use of sleep machines and stimulant drugs you get a glimpse of the tiny cracks in the monolithic Justice Department.
