Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

I have to admit, I really really like Dennis Blackmon.   He hit the blogosphere when he passed judgment on the big big bank who thought they were too big to sue..and now comes this Sex offender who had to stand in front of this judge.  

There is a ray of sunshine in Ga.  There is some justice in the west part of Ga where I hail from and there is one honest judge named Dennis Blackmon sitting on the bench.

I have seen this man up close and personal when he ruled on our custody case.  I feel he should be sitting on a Federal court somewhere,  and I hope the administration is paying  attention because this guy would be on my short list to a Supreme Court Appointment.  He is not shy about opinions.

The latest of his cases is about a case and sex abuse on children.  The judge sentenced him to 1000 years.  

Former TV33 owner Peter Mallory was sentenced Tuesday to 1,000 years in jail.

Mallory was convicted in December on charges including 60 counts of sexual exploitation of children. Troup County Superior Court Judge Dennis Blackmon sentenced Mallory to 20 years for each for the first 50 counts of sexual exploitation of children to be served consecutively, a total of 1,000 years, with a concurrent sentence of five years for each of the last 10 counts.

Judge Blackmon has a poker face like none I have ever seen.  When this judge gives an opinion, it almost takes you by surprise and then it is no holds barred.   He is very good at giving his opinion and I have never read where one was not deemed fair and thought out.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Despite the pleas from Mallory’s family and friends for leniency, Blackmon sentenced Mallory to the maximum sentencing of 1,000 years.

He appeared angry as he read the statement.

“The defendant may have believed because of his race, economic status and his standing in the community that no police force would arrest him, no prosecutor would pursue him, and no jury from Troup County would convict him,” Balckmon began. “He was mistaken.”

Blackmon went on to describe how the case came about when the LaGrange Police Department officers alerted that Mallory signaled to the entire world that he had hundreds of images and video containing the “filthiest and most disgusting child porn that one might imagine” coming from an IP address at his TV-33 station.

The area the judge is presiding in, is small town, mostly white, and according to the judge's statement and my own observations the defendent could have thought he could get away with this crime and he would  be mistaken . To me, Judge Blackmon as good as said, " Hey you counted on good old boy country, and you are wrong, Mr. Churchgoer.  This guy was a big wheel and a church leader and educator.  Right now he is sitting in a jail for eternity.  

We really should submit Judge Blackmon's name to the Obama Administration should a supreme court opening arise.  The last I heard Dennis Blackmon was a republican.   This is one republican I have much respect for.   Justice should know no party.  Did I mention this judge is a decorated veteran?

 Of course the opinion that meant the most to me was keeping one little girl safe in this household from a crazy woman.  He had his strong opinion on that as well.
