American-Muslim judge misunderstands free speech, sets Muslim attacker free and teaches the court about Islamic sensibilities

This is disgusting.  This judge, Mark Martin needs to be removed from the bench as soon as possible.  He is a danger to all who come through his court, and he is the perfect example of why we need anti-sharia legislation.  The judge also said that, on the one hand he supports the first amendment (really? ) but that the first amendment  is not designed " piss off other people and other cultures."  Judge Martin needs a swift lesson on why the first amendment specifically needs to be used to uphold speech which pisses off peoples and cultures.  He needs to be reminded that speech we all agree with needs no protection.

He is not the only judge with these bents, there are others, we just have not heard about them yet, as they have not risen to our radar screens by letting their mask slip.  

Prohibit sharia law on a federal level now.  The protections we need against such judges as Mark Martin have become necessary, otherwise we will see more sharia agitation from the bench.

Why we need anti-Sharia laws: Muslim judge enforces Sharia in case of Muslim attacker on mocker of Muhammad

More on this story. Here is the audio of the court proceedings as a Muslim judge acquitted a Muslim attacker for attacking an atheist dressed as Muhammad in a Halloween parade. The victim is incorrect in claiming that the Qur'an says that Muhammad rose from the dead, but that is not important. What is important is that the judge has no interest in or real understanding of the First Amendment, and that he lectures Ernest Perce about Muslim sensibilities. What Perce did may have been offensive to Muslims. But that is not (yet) illegal in America.

Note also that in the videohere, the Muslim attacker says he called the police because he thought that mocking Muhammad was illegal in this country. In other words, he thought Sharia was already in place in this particular. And now, courtesy Judge Mark Martin, we are one step closer to that actually being true.
American Judge in American court (minute 29:50): "Our forefathers intended that we use the first amendment so that we could speak what's on our mind, not piss off other cultures..... Islam is not just a religion, it's their culture, their culture, the very essence, their very being. They pray five times a day, towards Mecca. To be a good Muslim before you die, you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca unless you are otherwise told you cannot because you are too ill, too elderly, whatever, you must make the attempt. Their greetings salam alaikum, walaikum as-salam (as answered by voice), uh may god be with you. It is very common, their language, when they are speaking to each other, it is very common for them to say, uh allah willing, this will happen. It's they are so immersed in it. And what you've done is you've completey trashed their essence, their being. They find it very, very, very offensive. I am a Muslim. I find it very offensive ..... You are way outside your bounds of first amendment rights." (minute 31)
