While men are being targeted with malicious smear campaigns in divorce courts over domestic abuse and violence, and being destroyed in the process,
female knife attackers walk free from courts thanks to the masonic gender bigots masquerading as British judges.
Watchdog probes official complaint into judge who did not jail 'extraordinary' Oxford University student for stabbing her Tinder date because it could harm her career as a surgeon
*Ian Pringle QC handed Oxford student Lavinia Woodward a suspended sentence
*Sentencing was delayed so that she could prove herself and stay out of trouble
*Spokesman for the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office confirmed complaint
*Watchdog only deals with complaints about conduct but not judicial decisions
The judicial watchdog is investigating a complaint against the judge who spared a promising Oxford University student from jail time after she stabbed her boyfriend.
Ian Pringle QC handed Lavinia Woodward a 10-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, on Monday for knifing her then partner in a drunken assault last year.
Woodward, a 24-year-old medical student, was due to be sentenced earlier this year after admitting unlawful wounding.
But the judge caused anger after he gave her four months to prove herself and stay out of trouble due to her promising career as a surgeon.
Oxford Crown Court heard Woodward was later admitted to a clinic for treatment for addictions to Class A drugs and alcohol, and an eating disorder.
A spokesman for the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) said: 'The JCIO can confirm they have received a complaint against HHJ Ian Pringle QC.
'Any findings of misconduct against judicial office holders are published on the JCIO website at the conclusion of investigations.'
The watchdog can 'only deal with complaints about a judicial office-holder's personal conduct' and not a judicial decision', according to its website.
The suspended sentence means Woodward will remain free unless she commits another crime.
Critics have argued that someone working on a supermarket checkout might not have attracted the same level of sympathy from the courts.
When the judge told her she was free to go, Woodward mouthed the words 'thank you' and hurried from dock in floods of tears.
Woodward's lawyers said the student - who was supported by university staff at the hearing - had undergone a 'sea change' since coming off drugs during the wait to be sentenced and was now a 'different woman'.
The judge previously took the 'exceptional' step of delaying sentencing for four months and ordered her to remain drug free while she stayed at her mother's villa in Milan, Italy.
He suspended the term after James Sturman QC, defending, had urged the judge to give Woodward a conditional discharge due to her 'unique vulnerability, remorse and good character'.
He said: 'She can't even go to a nightclub in London, she's so recognisable.'
Woodward's barrister said in an earlier hearing that her dreams of becoming a surgeon were 'almost impossible' as her conviction would have to be disclosed.
If she qualified as a doctor and applied for registration, the General Medical Council could consider her application.
However the body would have to pass Woodward as 'fit to practice', which it is unlikely to do, according to many health experts, regardless of her avoiding a custodial sentence.
The court heard Woodward would not be returning to Oxford this year due to her notoriety.
Her lawyer, James Sturman QC, said she was considering whether to do a PhD abroad or to look for a research role at another university.
Judge's controversial comments sparked national debate
Judge Ian Pringle sparked a national debate about sentencing and the criminal justice system when he postponed Woodward's sentencing in May.
The told Oxford Crown Court: 'It seems to me that if this was a one-off, a complete one-off, to prevent this extraordinary able young lady from not following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to, would be a sentence which would be too severe.
'What you did will never, I know, leave you but it was pretty awful, and normally it would attract a custodial sentence, whether it is immediate or suspended.'

SUDDEN DEATH OF RETIRED SUPREME COURT JUDGE TOP FREEMASON JUSTICE OLIVER EXPLAINED
The world's global media have us ALL distracted with endless terrorism that HIDES the biggest terrorist plot against heterosexual men and their families that is being instigated by freemason judges and their lawyer minions. We have said time and again all terrorism is a smokescreen for the biggest child abuse network on the planet and the global judicial mafia behind that ring of terror being inflicted on men and their children.
Billions of men not part of the creepy masonic satanic network of power are being destroyed in the hell holes they claim are places of justice. There is NO justice for non mason men in this world ONLY the enormous pain and suffering these evil bastards are inflicting on men and in turn their children. Vulnerable families are being ripped apart thanks to a power structure that sees freemasons and ONLY freemasons deciding on the futures of billions of men and their children during divorce.
The divorce industrial complex has been manufactured, NOT to ensure justice, but to ensure the child abusing scum have access to every last penny of a families wealth and the terror they met out to unsuspecting men. Those men forced to pay trillions to lawyers supposedly to ensure they come through divorce unscathed when in reality they are ALL working to finish off any last bastion of good that came from marriages that in time crumble and give these terrorist child abusing monsters total power over a man's life's work.
There is an enormous evil that is hiding behind corporate rags and their smoke screens for a vast army of masonic thugs disguised as law enforcement and judges preying on those billions of men who in time will get their revenge for the enormous pain and suffering being inflicted for the vile perversions of a rogue mafia. Miss a mortgage payment and the bank will seize your property get divorced and the judeo / masonic run law society will help themselves to EVERYTHING and in many cases your life.

Former top family judge, 71, commits suicide after being diagnosed with dementia
A former top family judge killed himself after being diagnosed with dementia following 'years of suffering', his family has said.
Sir Nicholas Wall, who retired on health grounds in 2012, died last week at the age of 71 after battling serious illness for the past five years.
In a death notice published today, his family said the judge - who was President of the Family Division for two years from 2010 - had 'died by his own hand'.
They added that Sir Nicholas, who was married and had four children and two grandchildren, had suffered for 'several years' with a rare dementia of the fronto-temporal lobe, but it had only recently been diagnosed. He also suffered with depression.
The notice in the Times read: 'Wall, Sir Nicholas Peter Rathbone, past President of the Family Division died by his own hand on 17th of February 2017, aged 71.
'After years of suffering he was recently diagnosed with a rare dementia of the fronto-temporal lobe.'
The tribute also included a verse from Tennyson's poem Tithonus, which reads: 'The woods decay, the woods decay and fall/ The vapours weep their burthen to the ground/ Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath/ And after many a summer dies the swan.'
Sir Nicholas was found dead in Sevenoaks, Kent, on Friday. Kent Police were called to the scene and asked the Met Police to inform his wife Margaret, to whom he was married for more than 40 years.
He also leaves behind his children Imogen, 41, Emma, 39, Rosalind, 36, and Simon. He also had two grandsons, Joshua and Arthur.
Today, the family did not want to speak at their terraced home in Clapham, south west London.
But they released a statement, describing how the 'highly-respected' judge had only recently received a diagnosis to explain his ill-health.
'We are sad to confirm the death of Sir Nicholas Wall, who was not only a highly-respected former President of the Family Division but also a much-loved husband, father and grandfather,' it read.
'Sir Nicholas took his own life having suffered for several years from a rare neurological disease called fronto-temporal lobe dementia that had only recently been diagnosed.'
It is understood that Sir Nicholas's death was not connected to Dignitas or any other assisted dying campaign.
A graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, Sir Nicholas was called to the Bar in 1969, before being appointed a High Court Judge in the Family Division in 1993 and the Court of Appeal and Privy Council in 2004.
He was also a judge of the Employment Appeal Tribunal from 2001 to 2003 and a member of the Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Board on Family Law from 1997 to 2001.
Sir Nicholas became president of the Family Division and head of family justice for England and Wales in April 2010.
When he was put forward by the appointments panel, then-Justice Secretary Jack Straw attempted to block the promotion, perhaps due to his reputation as a forthright critic of social services, local council, social workers and politicians.
In 2009, Sir Nicholas urged his colleagues to 'come off the bench' and speak out about the 'parlous state of family law'.
In one memorable case, he said social workers were 'perceived as the arrogant and enthusiastic removers of children', who 'trample on the rights of parents and children in the process'.
The following year, he publicly called for a law to hand legal rights and duties to unmarried couples, saying a ‘live-in lovers’ law would protect women in long-term relationships from losing their home and their income in a break-up with their partner.
He was also outspoken in his condemnation of proposed cuts to legal aid.
On Saturday, the Family Law Bar Association announced the judge's death, describing him as a 'compassionate judge who thought and cared deeply about the outcome of his cases'.
Tributes have also poured in for him. Family law barrister James Roberts said he was 'a most humane Judge who always strived for the best outcome'.
Richard Cheesley wrote: 'RIP always had my respect, loved working him'.
Barrister Alan Bates added: 'A noble last gift by the wonderful Sir Nicholas Wall to justice and law reform to let it be known that he took own life. RIP'.
He told MailOnline: 'I think it's quite poignant in highlighting some of the problems around assisted dying and suicide.
'I can well see why someone who was known for his huge intellectual power and who felt such compassion for people would find the thought of losing their mental faculties so hard to bear.
'A lot of these discussions talks about pain and suffering, but this case highlights there different kind of pains. There's the kind of pain where you are suffering physically, but then there's the emotional pain of the thought of losing your intellectual ability.
'That's something that no pain relief can address and that's why his death is particularly poignant.'
Fronto-temporal dementia, also known as Pick's disease, affects the parts of the brain that control behaviour, emotions and language.
It is the same condition as Colin Baddiel, the father of comedian David Baddiel, who recently made a documentary about his father's battle with the disease.
In the film, called 'The Trouble with Dad', Baddiel explains the condition involves 'uncontrolled swearing, inappropriate behaviour, irritation, mood swings, apathy, and extreme impatience'.
Sir Nicholas's family asked for donations to be made to the Dementia Research Centre at the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery in London.
A Kent Police spokesman said: 'At 2.15am on Friday 17 February 2017 Kent Police received a report stating that a 71-year-old man had died suddenly at an address in Sevenoaks.
'There are no suspicious circumstances and officers are preparing a report for the coroner.'
Fronto-temporal dementia, also known as Pick's disease, affects the parts of the brain that control behaviour, emotions and language.
The symptoms - including impulsivity, loss of inhibitions and irrationality - usually develop gradually and get increasingly worse over a number of years.
The early symptoms can vary between different people with the condition, depending on which part of the brain is affected. Many people will initially have either behavioural or language problems.
As the condition progresses, most people experience problems in both of these areas, as well as additional physical problems and thinking difficulties. Eventually, the condition spreads to affect most brain functions.
Pick's disease is a significant cause of dementia in younger people, mainly between the age of 45 and 65.
|Freemason judicial mafia still the biggest threat to heterosexual men globally
No matter how often the controlled media rant on about terror threats by far the biggest threat to heterosexual men is still the family court system. There is hardly a day goes by but another horror story comes out about men being stripped and left penniless and homeless from draconian powers freemason judges have given themselves, making up divorce laws as they go along.

Danger to men from global terrorist attacks
There are millions of men across the world on the edge of life, NOT because of some spurious terror attack, BUT because of the powers of the judicial mafia and their lawyer lackeys only to happy to destroy and persecute men who are dragged by ex wives into divorce actions that are stripping men of every last bastion of human rights.
While the mass media promote homosexuals they ignore the suffering of heterosexual men being destroyed for the greed of a corrupt crown and global law society who use the London inns of court to control a global court structure where freemasons are behind the vile laws that are manufactured and used to destroy men not part of their creepy network of satanic power.
Their false flags are only increasing to take away the spotlight being shone on these monstrous decisions that are by far and away the most dangerous threat to heterosexual men and NOTHING will change our position on this primarily as former victims with the knowledge of what these evil bastards are getting up to behind closed doors. THEY MUST BE STOPPED.

Resigns after THOUSANDS of pictures are found of young naked men in his home
An Arkansas judge who allegedly coerced male defendants into having sex with him in exchange for sentence reductions has resigned after thousands of photos showing naked young men in his home, some being paddled, were found by investigators.
Part-time Cross County District Judge Joe Boeckmann resigned Monday, authorities said, adding that he had promised never to return to public office. In doing so, the investigation was closed.
The move came after David Sachar, executive director of the commission investigating the judge, told Boeckmann and his attorney that investigators had found around 4,550 photos on his PCs.
According to documents filed by the commission, which has been investigating Boeckmann since November, the photos show naked young men inside and outside the judge's home, some of whom had been paddled.
The judge has been told not to destroy the paddle seen in the pictures.
Further allegations say that the judge had paid the men seen in the photos while they were on his docket.
It is alleged that the judge had offered to pay defendants' attorney fees in exchange for sex, The Associated Press said.
Sachar told Boeckmann that around 1,050 images from his computers had been provided to investigators in the first instance, and that a further 3,400 were expected to follow.
And, KARK wrote, documents filed Friday say investigators believe that the judge's dubious acts stretched back to 30 years ago, when he was a deputy prosecuting attorney and private attorney in Arkansas
Several teens were quoted in the documents saying their charges were dismissed after Broeckmann, then the deputy prosecuting attorney, had taken photographs of them.
One alleged victim claimed he had been made to strip and wear handcuffs in the courtroom while Boeckmann took photos of him. At the end of the shoot, he says, Boeckmann told him 'Case dismissed.'
In his letter to Boeckmann and his lawyer, Sachar gave the judge the opportunity to resign, which he duly took. In his resignation letter, the judge also promised never to work for the state of Arkansas again.
'I further promise to never seek employment as a local, county or state employee or public servant in the State of Arkansas,' he wrote. 'I understand the [commission] will use all legal power it finds necessary to enforce this agreement.'
Boeckmann also wrote that the resignation should result in the dismissal of the commission's investigation.
However, Sachar previously said he had turned part of the investigation file over to prosecutors to determine if Boeckmann would be criminally charged.
And KARK confirmed that a federal investigation is underway, although a gag order placed by Circuit Judge Chris Morledge in August 2015 means that those involved are forbidden to speak to the media on the matter.
The original civil investigation, which began in November last year, said Boeckmann showed preferential treatment to white men and allowed sentencing not recorded on court dockets, including picking up trash at his home.
It also accused him of taking inappropriate photographs of defendants during those punishments and later coercing some of them into sexual acts in return for paying their attorney fees.
He's also accused of promising to reduce sentences in exchange for sex, ABC 7 said.
The investigation began after an Arkansas Department of Human Services investigator alleged that Boeckmann had reduced the bond against a defendant while he was in a long-term relationship with her male relative.
Sachar said that the Arkansas Supreme Court had appointed a special judge to hear Boeckmann's cases during the investigation.
Jeff Rosenzweig, Boeckmann's attorney, says he will not make any further comments beyond his resignation letter to the commission.
Boeckmann had previously denied all the charges made against him.

| Judge claims he is NOT a freemason in a case between Rangers and Sports Direct
A High Court judge in a case involving Sports Direct and Rangers has taken the unusual step of denying he is a freemason or that his wife supports the club.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Fair Hearing? Mr Justice Peter Smith raised the matter of his own lost luggage 33 times in a British Airways competition case.
Mr Justice Peter Smith's remarks came as he set a trial date for February over claims that Rangers chairman Dave King breached a gagging order.
The case relates to the retail deal between Rangers and Mike Ashley's firm.
It emerged at the hearing that Sports Direct had now dropped its £200,000 damages claim in the case.
The origins of the case go back to the retail agreement which Sports Direct entered into with the club's previous board.
The new board, which was elected last year, has said before that it would like to renegotiate the deal.
Mr Ashley won a court injunction preventing Rangers, and anyone on the new board, from revealing details of the agreement.
Sports Direct alleged that Mr King breached this injunction during an interview he gave to Sky at his home in South Africa.
At a hearing in December, Mr Justice Smith dismissed the firm's motion that Mr King should be jailed.
When the case called again on Tuesday, the judge was critical of the way Sports Direct had conducted its case.
The judge added: "The whole way that the claimants have been conducting themselves ... shows that they have been abusing processes of the court in relation to the damages claim."
During the hearing, Mr Justice Smith also told the court that he had wrongly been accused of being a Freemason - and his wife had wrongly been accused of supporting Rangers.
The judge said his clerk had received emails responding to "various blogs" on the internet.
"One of the blogs insists that I am a Freemason, which is wrong," said the judge.
"Also, my wife is a 'life-long Rangers supporter'."
He added: "She is from Edinburgh. The idea that she would support any Glasgow team is laughable."
Three years ago Mr Justice Smith oversaw a case involving Portsmouth FC. He had told Portsmouth fans gathered at a hearing in London that he was a Hull City fan.

Their lunatic mass media can continue to try and brainwash the sheeple on terrorism threats but the single biggest threat to men's futures are the freemasons disguised as some sort of legal system that is busily stripping men while destroying their families infrastructure .
The chance of a man crossing the path of a terrorist and them doing you harm is probably less than being struck by lightning but the chance of being destroyed by a judge is extremely high. So why do their controlled media bleat on endlessly about terror threats? Because they are using those threats as smoke screens for the mass rape and murder of men across the globe.
Freemasons and the wealth accumulating infrastructure they have built around themselves is devouring wealth on the grandest of scales with total impunity and with Cameron in the UK and Obama in America allowing judges to cause vast destruction while ranting about what is going on across the Middle East that is an enormous distraction to the damage these evil bastards are inflicting on the majority of the male population in their own countries.
NOTHING repeat NOTHING comes close to the vast reservoir of stolen loot and the accumulating dead bodies associated with the freemason gestapo riding roughshod over every right men should have, but torn up when these evil scum come to take the spoils of a lifetime of graft.
The sheeple can blindly be led down the garden path by the gutter media's bullshit, but men are becoming ever more aware of the real threat that creates terror across the supposed democratic WEST that Obama and Cameron are totally responsible for turning a blind eye to the mountain of dead men's bodies caused, NOT by their claim of Middle East terror threats, but by the very scum indoctrinated into the judicial system to fleece and murder on the very grandest of scales and why they call themselves the masters of grand deception 'GRAND MASTERS'.
We personally know of no one who as ever been damaged by a terror attack but we know THOUSANDS destroyed by the organised crime ring of a judicial mafia right across the world and that is from decades of being caught up in their sinister scams they claim is some sort of justice system. We have NEVER had anyone contact us about personal issues regarding so called terror threats but have had literally thousands of communications and queries regarding the judicial mafia and lawyers.

Julian Assange speech prompts judges to boycott legal conference
Senior British justices say the addition of a ‘fugitive from justice’ at short notice forced them to withdraw from the Commonwealth Law Conference in Glasgow
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for more than two and a half years.
Some of the most senior judges in Britain withdrew from a legal conference in Glasgow after the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, was booked to speak by video-link.
Assange, who has been living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London since losing his legal challenge to an extradition request from Sweden in 2012, spoke at a panel session of the Commonwealth Law Conference about surveillance and security on Wednesday.
Judges from Scotland, England and Wales and the UK supreme court had agreed to speak at or chair other sessions but withdrew – in some cases after arriving at the conference centre– when they found out about Assange’s appearance.
Among those to boycott the conference were the most senior judge in Scotland, Lord Gill, and two judges on the supreme court, Lord Neuberger and Lord Hodge.
Representatives of the judges said it would have been inappropriate for them to have attended, because of Assange’s legal status.
A spokesperson for the Judicial Office for Scotland said: “The conference programme was changed to include Mr Assange’s participation at short notice and without consultation. Mr Assange is, as a matter of law, currently a fugitive from justice, and it would therefore not be appropriate for judges to be addressed by him.
“Under these circumstances, the lord president, Lord Gill, and the other Scottish judicial officeholders in attendance have withdrawn from the conference.”
A spokesman for the UK supreme court added: “Lord Neuberger and Lord Hodge share the concerns expressed by Lord Gill and his fellow senior Scottish judges regarding the late addition of Mr Assange to the conference programme.
“As a result of this unfortunate development, they trust that delegates will understand their decision to withdraw from the conference. The justices took this action regretfully, as they value greatly the work of the Commonwealth Lawyers Association and the role of the conference as an important forum for sharing experiences and good practice across the legal profession.”
A spokesman for judiciary of England and Wales said: “The lord chief justice shares the concerns expressed by Lord Gill and Lord Neuberger in relation to the late change to the conference programme. He agreed with the position taken by both, and the judges of England and Wales also withdrew from the conference. The lord chief justice and the judiciary continue to express their strong commitment to the rule of law across the Commonwealth, and internationally.”
More than 20 Commonwealth judges attended the session at which Assange spoke and listened to a discussion about legal professional privilege.
