    When a society is more interested in punishing criminals than they are in justice, then it doesn't matter what method they use to choose judges: the judges will be more interested in punishing criminals than they are in justice.

    It's like California's initiative process.  It's blamed for the state's fiscal problems (perhaps wrongly), but the same fiscal problems plage the federal government, too - because the people want to eat their cake and have it, too.  The only way to solve that problem is to eliminate the ability of the people to influence government - which isn't a desirable solution.
