The proper role of a judge is found in Moses' charge to the judges of Israel:
""Ye shall not respect persons in judgment but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man for the judgment is God''s."" Deut. 1:17
Judges must be fair to all who appear before them. To favor one more than another because of wealth, appearance, relationship, station in life, or other reason is to be partial and unfair. We must always strive to ""choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong and never to be content with a half-truth, when the whole can be won.""
The Courts of Alabama must have leadership which stands for those principles. I will always do my best to seek liberty and justice for all.
