    Is anybody on this forum following the case of Darren Mack? He is the guy who supposedly shot the judge presiding in his Divorce proceedings and is also accused of stabbing his wife to death. Any updates would be appreciated. Here is a link to a website following this case:

    Here is the text of a recent clipping from that website:

    Here is the link referenced for that article:

    Does anybody have details of the incident? Does anybody know the status of the Judge who was shot? Did he have a complete recovery and is he currently active on the bench?

    Thanks.

    At one time I saw the story on one of the 60 Minutes type news shows.

    The judge did recover quickly. The flight path of the bullet must have been deflected when going through the window glass, so it was not a well placed shot. Apparently the judge did not have a good reputation for being fair.

    The case sounded to me like Mack lost it from anger over the divorce and custody rulings and went after both his wife and the judge. My bet is that the probability that he is guilty is very high, but that is just based on whatever I remember from the tv story, plus how typical that a wife murder during or after divorce is the husband's doing.

    I'm in Reno, the local right wing talking head (Bill Manders 780 KOH am )
    feels he might get away with it, Mack hired some good lawyers.
    The Judge is fine....wife is still dead.
    At first everyone in Reno was all for him until they announced he killed his wife.
    People still don't like the judge though.

    IIRC he used an AR15 to shoot the judge.

    "IIRC he used an AR15 to shoot the judge."

    Let this be a lesson to all: Use enough gun!

    Was he a card carrying "sniper"?

    Why is it whenever someone gets shot at a distance of more than 10 yds , they must have been shot by a "sniper" ? I shoot out to 800 yds accurately , so does that make me a sniper? Typical media bs .

    I wonder if the judge's rulings have become "fairer" as a result. More than likely he had bullet proof glass installed in his 3rd floor windows.

    In a constant state of confusion.
    I remember hearing about this and thinking, "What a psycho, those Nevadans have gone off the reservation". Then I moved to Nevada eight months later and love it. What a great place. Darn that stupid California mindset.

    Interesting to see how all the police have their trigger fingers off the trigger and have their weapons pointed in a safe direction.

    If you're shooting at people, it does.
