Tuesday’s guest speaker at our Midtown Republican Club meeting was Juvenile Court Chief Magistrate Dan Michael. If you missed it, you can read about it on this website. Attendees can appreciate his job just from two front page articles in today’s (Saturday, Sept. 7) Commercial Appeal.
One case, “Gang killer dodges prison” confirms a lot of what he told us about the local court and what the federal court wants to do. The other, “Teen terrorized homeless men for fun as video rolled,” also reflects what he explained to us is happening in the judicial system.
It’s always great to have someone like Judge Michael come to our meeting and give us the real information on what’s happening and also that he or she is available for questions. Where else do you get that opportunity?
