Threats against judges at record pace

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Disturbing, but not surprising, especially when the GOP makes judge bashing one of their top political priorities:

Threats and inappropriate communications have quadrupled over 10 years ago. There were 201 reported such incidents in the 1996 government spending year and 943 in the year that ended Sept. 30, the Marshals Service said.

This year alone, the Marshals Service has had 822 reports of inappropriate communications and threats, a pace that would top 1,000 for the year.
