Judges are out of control in USA. They overturn the law and decision arrived through referendum. They change the definition of marriage. They overrule a law that allows a patient to live. One judge in California overruled Proposition 8. There is no retirement age for judges and they hold office as long as they want. There is no process to remove judges.
Americans must put retirement age for judges and have a process for removal of judges for misdemeanours and usurpation of the powers of executive and legislature. Judges exercise veto power when they nullify any law. In grave cases guilty judges should be hanged. Overruling Proposition 8 is a grave case.
Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days imprisonment. Within days she is out of jail and sent to rehab centre. What a joke!
In India appointment of judges is shrouded in secrecy. It is time to make it open.
The names of judges who are to be appointed to the Supreme Court and High Courts should be made public. Committees should be appointed to discuss the appointments. For Supreme Court judges a committee comprising members of Lok Sabha should be appointed. Anyone who has objection to the appointment should mention in to the committee. The candidate should be given an opportunity to defend himself or herself. Similarly for High Court judges a committee comprising members of Legislative Assembly of the state should be appointed and procedure followed. Judges should be appointed after the committee clears appointments.
