Last April, 56 Los Angeles County courtrooms were shut down, workers were laid off and judges were asked to double up in the use of remaining staff and facilities.  Presiding Judge Lee Smalley Edmon said, “We are rationing justice.” Now, it’s become even worse. Yesterday, Judge Edmon announced that all courtrooms will be closed down in Beverly Hills, West LA, Malibu, Huntington Park, Whittier, Pomona, San Pedro and Avalon on Catalina Island.

    That simply means a delay in the delivering of justice, which could potentially embolden crooks. In the end, it is the common citizen that will have to defend himself or herself from crooks.

    One or two closures wouldn't have mattered. However, 56 is a whole other risky ballgame. If those that are left are unable to pick up the slack, that could give all sorts of criminals that much more room to operate. I'm just hoping this isn't the case.
