My post mentions Kansas University Law Professor Stephen Ware‘s call for an end to the lawyer-dominated process of selection Kansas judges. Mr. Epp’s reaction — and he is a lawyer — should strengthen the resolve of Kansans to take control of this process away from lawyers and their narrow self-interest.
Here’s Why Kansans Need to Take Control

Do we want People’s Tribunals like the Soviets and Communists Chinese used? I don’t think so. If you believe in justice, you want a dispassionate, uninfluenced judiciary. Many judges are elected. The citizens have influence through that part of the process.

“Many judges are elected. The citizens have influence through that part of the process.”
Wow, spoken like a true lawyer.
An “uninfluenced” judiciary is a pipe dream. Right now, Kansas is the only state where lawyers are a majority in the selection of State Supreme Court justices. Lawyers would have us believe that they have no political leanings and make non-partisan decisions. However if I were to believe that, I’d have to watch pigs fly too.
