Judge Reade's open hatred toward Mr. Rubashkin surely adds no honor to the judicial system! It is quite evident that she should not have sat on the bench in this case. From the start of the case, her cruel treatment of Mr. Rubashkin showed that this was not a case of fair and impartial justice, but rather a vendetta to crush a good man. Whether he had committed bank fraud or not, he was given no slack whatsoever. The fact that he single-handedly built up a sleepy town, employed an untold number of people, and added much to the tax coffers of the US government - both locally and federally - meant nothing to Linda Reade. The fact that he didn't miss a payment - until the insane raid of his plant (as if he was some dangerous drug lord) - meant nothing to Linda Reade. The fact that the prosecution asked for 25 years - which is essentially a life sentence - and she ADDED to that, shows her personal hatred toward the defendant. This ruling should be overturned, and Mr Rubashkin should be afforded a fair and unbiased trial! I hope that this cruel and unjust lynching weighs heavily on the concience of this heartless woman, and gives her no peace. Isn't it sad that rapists and murderers will sit for less time than was given to Mr Rubashkin??
