TRUMP-PROMOTED JUDGE TOLD 2-YEAR-OLD GUATEMALAN BOY TO BE QUIET OR DOG WOULD 'BITE YOU': REPORT

Source: Newsweek


BY JESSICA KWONG ON 9/10/19 AT 7:36 PM EDT

A judge President Donald Trump promoted to the Department of Justice's Board of Immigration Appeals reportedly once yelled at a 2-year-old Guatemalan boy in court to shush him and threatened to bring a dog in to bite him.

Judge V. Stuart Couch, promoted by the Trump administration to the board that makes deportation decisions last month, confronted the boy in a courtroom in Charlotte, North Carolina, in March 2016, according to an affidavit that Mother Jones obtained and reported on Tuesday.

Couch pointed at the boy who was making noise and demanded that he stop, before losing patience and raising his voice.

"I have a very big dog in my office, and if you don't be quiet, he will come out and bite you!" Couch yelled, as a Spanish-language interpreter translated for the boy.

3. Were you two years old?

My mother used to threaten to knock us into the middle of next week. When she said that, we knew she was serious, but didn't really think that would happen.

And I wasn't two years old and trying to represent myself in court.

6. Pretty astute observation of you ... given the physical impossibility of such an action ;) (nt)

19. And...

... did you think she was serious?
...or did you know she was speaking figuratively?
... and by "my mother" I assume this means she was not a stranger to you, and that she was in fact your parent, and she was not speaking to you through an interpreter?


C'mon man.

4. Are you seriously trying to defend a judge who threatened

a 2 year old? With a vicious dog? One that would bite the poor baby if he continued to act his age?

Come on, man. Think. Just think a little.

7. Gee, this passes the "Latest Breaking News" test?

I was told a couple times the "boogyman" would get me. Maybe i should write a story about it.

8. To help... dog is a real thing... boogyman not... threatning a child is reprehesible @ very least

Do I need to remind you that empathy is a human characteristic for 95% of the populace ... unless you are part of the 5%. Is that helpful?

9. I'm just saying its not "latest breaking news", not that he isnt an ass.

You can find "person acts like ass" stories all day long. They dont get posted here.

11. If it is good enough for Newsweek it is good enough for me

I find it strange people complain stories from a place such as CNN isn't good enough for DU LBN.

18. It is in that it was just now uncovered and reported on

It was uncovered recently when looking into the background of a Trump appointed judge. A lot of LBN is concerning incidents that didn't actually occur within 24 hours, but were only just now found out about.

13. Here we have a judge threatening a 2 year old boy with bodily harm

because he is making noise in his court.
Sure makes the grade for my "latest breaking news" test.
Terrorizing a little boy is grounds for removal from the bench in my book.

14. The fact that some DUers are objecting to you posting this article

means you were right to post this article.

It speaks to the character and judgement of people Trump has appointed to make deportation rulings. And the news is breaking since it was just published.

17. Yeah. And his age is disturbing enough

Dragging toddlers before a judge as defendants like that is sick.
