Judge George Bathurst-Norman of East Sussex, UK; anti-semite

 
George was provided with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from Newcastle University Law School.
 
The disciplinary authorities in England found Judge Bathurst guilty of misconduct for making anti-Israeli comments during a trial. The trial involved seven activists who sabotaged equipment at a Brighton factory they claimed was making parts for Israeli warplanes.
 
The defendants laughingly claimed they were acting with “lawful excuse” to prevent further alleged war crimes being committed by Israel against Gaza.
 
In his summation to the jury, Judge Bathurst said:
  1. “I am going to start with the background relating to Israel and Palestine and to the evidence which points to the war crimes being committed by Israel in Gaza, an area over which Israel has imposed a blockade.”
  2. “Now you have to look at the evidence coldly and dispassionately.”
  3. “The evidence shows that those war crimes are committed against the civilian population of Gaza and against the property of its residents, including the United Nations by the Israeli Forces.”
  4. “It may be as you went through what I can only describe as horrific scenes, scenes of devastation to civilian population, scenes which one would rather have hoped to have disappeared with the Nazi regimes of the last war, you may have felt anger and been absolutely appalled by them, but you must put that emotion aside.”
As a consequence of his so-called instructions to the jury, the defendants were found not guilty.
 
Judge Bathurst may as well have instructed the jury that it was their duty to render a not guilty verdict to vindicate his anti-Semitism.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the Lord Chancellor and Lord Chief Justice, patron saints for Judicial Misfits in England punished Bathurst by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.
This die-in-the-wool bigot should rightfully have been tossed off the bench!
 
As we speak (August 2012) George the Bigot remains on the bench in East Sussex.
