    Kudos to Ms. Tucker for recognizing that domestic relations matters are the most volatile. It is unfortunate that the judges and staff who work in these courts are treated all too often like bastard stepchildren when it comes to resources such as security.

    of course as a Judge I know if someone desires to do harm, there is little which can be done to prevent it in smaller communities like ours where we are so accessible and out and about in the community on a regular basis without any security. Just goes with the turf. That is why I give every defendant probation so they won‘t get mad at me. (yes, that is a joke. I hand out stiff sentences for severe charges and cannot be concerned about the consequences from the defendant or their family. Very sad about Judge Myles. Just a crazy world.
