Judge Covering His Own Butt

     I just heard a newscast where Judge Mark Loyd was telling Channel 8 News that he didn't have all the facts in the case when he granted unsupervised visitation to Amanda Smith for little Jacob Smith, age 3. He stated that he wasn't aware of the numerous calls made by Amanda to law officials. He also stated if he had been made aware of this he MIGHT have made a different ruling about the visitation. Then he tried to throw the guilt on Amanda's mother by saying she was the one who made the decision of where and when Amanda could see her son. But then he did say he had received a letter from Amanda this past December requesting one overnight visit per week but that she wished for Jacob to remain in her parents' custody. He admitted that he knew that she had a crack addiction because she had requested help a few years ago because of the addiction and she didn't know if she could take care of her children. Just knowing that she was addicted to crack at one time, he should have ordered a drug screen on her before he made his ruling to grant her petition. He should have gotten information from Amanda's mother about how Amanda was behaving with the child. He could have done a whole lot more than he did but I guess it was just too much of an effort for him. I certainly hope that the voters in Johnson County remove him from office.
     Little Jacob Jesus Smith's funeral will be at the Jessen Funeral Home, Franklin Chapel, 197 E. Jefferson Street in Franklin, Indiana at 2 pm on Friday, March 2, 2012. Visitation will be from noon until service time at the funeral home . He will then be laid to rest at the Friendship Cemetery outside of Trafalgar, Indiana, where his ancestors have been resting for generations.

  1. Hi Sis!
    This is really a great post! Just like most elected officials today, they won't take responsibility for THEIR actions! He must be a Democrat! Your blog looks great, too! Love your profile pic!

    1. Thanks Sister! I love your comment about the judge must be a democrat! Most likely since he trying to shift the blame to anywhere but at his own door!
