O learned judge! O idiot judge!

Oakland County in Michigan is stuck with her for a long time yet. She probably has no children – one hopes. But Oakland County residents cannot complain now. They elected her.

Lisa Ortlieb Gorcyca is a judge for the 6th Circuit Court in Oakland County, Michigan. She was elected to the court on November 4, 2008, for a six-year term ending on January 1, 2015. On November 4, 2014, Gorcyca was re-elected unopposed for another six-year term commencing on January 1, 2015, and expiring on December 31, 2020.

Oakland Press:

An Oakland County circuit judge who sent three children to a juvenile detention facility for refusing to speak to their father compared the kids to cult leader Charles Manson.

Oakland Circuit Judge Lisa Gorcyca declared the children of Maya Tsimhoni in contempt of court last month and ordered them held at Oakland County Children’s Village until they attempt to have a relationship with their father or they turn 18.

The three — ages 9, 10, and 14 — have been incarcerated for more than two weeks.

And as a reader writes in to the Oakland Press:

There have been many outrageous decisions made by judges over the years, but Judge Lisa Gorcyca’s recent order to send three children to spend detention until they turn 18 is one of the most appalling orders ever! Comparing these children to Charles Manson shows this judge is nothing short of insane.

She needs to resign immediately or be removed. Murderers and robbers get more lenient sentences, yet innocent children are sent away? This action by Judge Lisa Gorcyca will cause detrimental affects on these children. But then, what does she care? She is on a power trip evidently because after all, she is the all-wise judge! Pathetic!
