What Can Be Done About Judge Kendall?

Dear Source:
The news that Judge Leon Kendall is being formally taken to task by not only a stateside watchdog committee but also by local domestic violence groups is a grand hoorah of monumental proportions. I have nothing but accolades for everyone involved in their efforts to either remove Judge Kendall from his position or else place him in a benign bench position where he'll not be able to continue placing the community at risk. It seems unlikely that he has any intention of resigning.
But I would say this, and with all due respect. I was right out front there with my signs at the silent demonstration on St Thomas. As small in number as was the turnout compared to the approving cacaphony of honks from drivers, I just wish that the organizers had had something simple printed up to hand out to the demonstrators, just something giving information about who to contact next.
I left the protest feeling that I had accomplished something incredibly good and necessary but was stuck about where to logically go from there.
Anna Clarke
