Why is U.S. District Judge John Roll Dead?

Prior to this weekend, I had never heard of U.S. District Court Judge John Roll who was killed in the Arizona killing spree.  I since did a little research to learn the judge had many threats against his life for allowing an illegal immigrants lawsuit to move forward in Arizona.
"In February, when U.S. District Judge John Roll presided over a $32 million civil-rights lawsuit filed by illegal immigrants against an Arizona rancher, the Marshals Service was anticipating the fallout.
When Roll ruled the case could go forward, Gonzales said talk-radio shows cranked up the controversy and spurred audiences into making threats.

In one afternoon, Roll logged more than 200 phone calls. Callers threatened the judge and his family. They posted personal information about Roll online.

"They said, 'We should kill him. He should be dead,' Gonzales said.
Roll, who is the chief federal judge in Arizona, said both he and his wife were given a protection detail for about a month.

'It was unnerving and invasive. . . . By its nature it has to be," Roll said, adding that they were encouraged to live their lives as normally as possible. 'It was handled very professionally by the Marshals Service.'" - U.S. Judiciary Facing Rise in Death Threats - AZ

Judge Roll was also involved most recently in attempting to delay bringing illegal immigrant felons to trial claiming it was overburdening the judicial system and causing a "judicial emergency."
In further research I also learned that back in the 1990's Judge Roll had been involved in a case with Janet Napolitano against chiropractors at New Life Health Center.  Both Roll and Napolitano had a criminal complaint filed against them being accused of  obstruction of justice, jury tampering, perjury, bribery, and conspiracy in Arizona. (See Napolitano 'Committed Criminal Conspiracy' with Judge John Roll Who Was Slain Today)

When people file criminal complaints against judges and those in the Federal government, the government often simply dismisses them.  That's the problem with Federal government, you see; there's really no one overseeing those high up so they can commit crimes and dismiss the complaints against themselves and one another.

These power drunk people in government tend to make a lot of people very angry in our country.  Judge Roll was playing with fire and got burned by some ignorant 22 year old who was probably directed by someone to do what he did.  It's so sad so many innocent bystanders had to suffer the consequences from Judge Rolls' corrupt politics on the bench, especially the little girl.  It's so sad judges have to be such incredible assholes these days being severely out of touch with common sense laws such as border protection.
