to be fair...

To be fair to Judge Pat Casados, since Travis is related to her, she always recuses herself from cases he has in Los Alamos Magistrate Court. That's right, it's other judges that create the revolving door for Travis, not Judge Casados....

Repeat Offenders

So we see Travis back in jail again... Is anybody shocked? No... Is he really a scary man that is a violent offender? It breaks my heart, what should we do? Are we to condemn him to the Santa Fe penitentiary because is is being loud outside somebodies window? So he didn't pass his Breathalyzer... does this man even own a car? Does that make the offense a WUI, because it sure isn't a DUI? Maybe Pat Casados is not being lenient, rather she is being reasonable. We all know what goes down in the pen, are you saying that Travis deserves that? Why persecute him when we have true sex offenders, true domestic violence offenders, true drug dealers corrupting the youth of Los Alamos?

Maybe Los Alamos should create a half-way house for the people in the revolving door. A place that would help people, and maybe give them a place to get their feet under themselves. It is my understanding that the state is no longer funding anything and it is expected that the communities are supposed to deal with these type of situations. I guess that leaves it up to the churches and the rest of us to do something.

Pat Casados--a bum's best friend

I second that comment. Pat Casados kicks repeat offenders loose time and time again. Spend a little time in the state's case lookup and watch how many people come before her over and over, and are never held accountable for their actions. Her favorite word? "DISMISSED!"

Pat Casados -- a bum's best friend

Actually in this case, it's her nephew. Regardless, he's still a problem, as are all of the rest of the repeats in the blotter.

Travis Kennedy

So, how many times does this young man need to be arrested before we can expect that he will be incarcerated forever? If he was arrested for failing a breath test, does that mean that his probation was violated? Is he going to get another slap on the wrist for this too? One of these days, he is going to run into someone who won't be tolerant of his continuing bad behavior. If Pat Casados wants to be re-elected, she better start putting away the repeat offenders that seem to be in the police blotter every week.
