By now you have probably heard about the outrageous and inexcusable outburst by Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker.
While sentencing a killer for a shooting that took place in August, Walker went off the rails and declared:
“If I could I would take all the guns in America, put them on big barges and go dump them in the ocean. Nobody would have a gun. Not police, not security, not anybody. We should eliminate all of them.”
“They are a scourge of this country and no one should have one as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “There’s no defense to guns. There’s just absolutely no reason to have them.”
Bizarrely, he then went on to say “But it is a right of people in this country to own and possess them, and I will not say anything to affect that right.”
As if he hadn’t already done exactly that.
This kind of open animosity towards a fundamental right and a complete disregard for both the Oregon and US Constitutions, both of which Walker took an oath to uphold, clearly make him unfit for any judicial role. This is especially disturbing in light of the treatment that law abiding gun owners receive in Multnomah County.
The Oregon Firearms Federation has filed an official complaint against Walker and requested that he be removed from the bench.
There is simply no way a person who had used a firearm in self defense can expect any kind of fair hearing from Walker.
We suggest, as an Oregon resident, you consider filing your own complaint against this biased, agenda driven rogue judge.
An official complaint form with instructions for filing can be found here:
Again, the Judge’s name is Kenneth Walker.
The Court is the Multnomah County Circuit Court in Portland, Multnomah County.
The misconduct would fall under “Conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice that brings the judicial office into disrepute” or “A violation of the Oregon Code of Judicial Conduct”
Under “Statement of Facts:”
The date, time and location would be on or about Sept 27th, (time unknown) Multnomah County Courthouse, Portland OR.
The Case Name would be State of Oregon vs Marcell Lee Daniel Jr (case number unavailable but not required)
The type of case is “Criminal.”
Your relation to the case would be “Other, Oregon Citizen”
Under “3” “List documents that help support your information..” you may include a copy of this Oregonian article.
Under “4” “Identify, if you can, any other witnesses to the conduct of the Judge..” you can list the thousands of people who have seen the video available at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssjX0TTBP98&feature=youtu.be . You can also list the reporter from the Oregonian who broke the story, Aimee Green. The Oregonian’s address is 1500 SW First Ave. Suite 500 Portland OR 97201.
Section 5 asks for “specific details of what the judge did that you think constitutes misconduct…”
This one is easy. The judge displayed an inexcusable bias against persons exercising their Constitutional rights and a dangerous desire to disarm law enforcement. (Although not likely his own security.) The judge clearly allows extreme personal opinions to influence his actions and does not have the temperament to serve on the bench.
Oregon gun owners are under siege from anti-rights politicians. We cannot allow those tasked with the impartial administration of justice to pervert the legal system in order to promote a dangerous and unconstitutional agenda.
