Tennessee Judge In Trouble

One of the reasons that we need to scrutinize judges is to help locate those judges who are in trouble, and whose trouble has caused them to harm others.  This story about a Tennessee judge caught my eye.

On the one hand, it is important to help him get into recovery.  On the other hand, it is important to determine whether he will harm people if he is not de-benched, and whether he has harmed people in the past.  An ill man in power can do significant damage.
