Masslive: The Massachusetts judge arrested for allegedly grabbing her wife by the hair and yanking her head back during a dispute told police, “I’m a superior judge” while being put into custody, according to police reports. Judge Shannon Frison, who sits in Worcester Superior Court, was arraigned Monday in Marlborough District Court on a charge of domestic assault and battery. She was released on personal recognizance and returns to court next month. The 49-year-old judge was arrested Sunday in Hudson, police reports and court records show.
“I’m a superior judge, you can’t arrest me. Let me go,” Frison allegedly told police.
Frison is now on paid administrative leave, the Massachusetts Trial Courts confirmed. Hudson police were called to Brook and Chestnut streets for a report of an “upset female” around 7:30 p.m. Police learned she may have argued with a person in a car. In one police report, a Hudson police sergeant said he saw his fellow officer putting Frison into custody on a domestic assault and battery charge. The judge was “balking at this claiming she was a Superior Court Judge and that she has to sit in Court in Worcester in the morning,” the sergeant wrote in his report.
The alleged victim, Frison’s wife, told police that Frison pulled her hair. The couple has a 4-year-old daughter, according to reports. Police were told a car was following an upset woman. The car was speeding up and down Brook Street, according to police reports. The driver of the car was identified as the judge. Police talked to the upset woman, who is Frison’s wife. The wife said the couple is having “a tough marriage recently,” according to police reports. The wife told police that Frison yelled at her at their home in Hudson and began screaming at her. Frison, according to police reports and her wife, pulled the back of her wife’s hair, yanking her head back. The wife then left and walked down the street with their child.
Frison refused to speak to one officer, police reports said. She was then handcuffed and taken to a cruiser. Police said that’s when Frison told police she was a judge and they can’t arrest her. A witness, who told police he heard some of the commotion, said he saw a silver BMW speed down the street and cut in front of a woman. The woman, who appears to be Frison’s wife, was holding their daughter. The vehicle left the scene and returned. Frison was allegedly driving the BMW. The driver allegedly yelled at the woman, “Now you have this white boy with his dog protecting you.”
Authorities contacted the state Department of Children & Families after the incident.
Who wore it better?
Welcome to Massachusetts folks. Where DA’s like Rachael Rollins get paid to let Antifa go free, where congresswomen like Ayanna Pressley share GoFundMe’s so Antifa can get bailed out of jail, where some judges like Shelley Joseph help illegal immigrants escape out the backdoor to avoid ICE, where the Mayor of Fall River won’t resign even after being arrested by the FBI twice in one year, and where other judges get visits from the DCF fairy after beating the shit out of their scissoring partner and then tell the cops they can’t be arrested because they’re superior court judges.
You’ll never guess who Sandra Day Dishonor was appointed by…..
Good thing we have a woman who’s in charge of imposing fair sentences on people who pulls her wife’s hair, drives around residential neighborhoods at high rates of speed, cuts in front of women and children, and uses language like this:
Now you have this white boy with his dog protecting you.”
I’m sure she’s overly qualified for her position, and she didn’t use identity politics and/or affirmative action to get there. I’m sure she was the most qualified for that position. Definitely.
LOL. Just kidding. This woman pretty much uses her identity 24/7. She was recently featured in a WBZ story in July about the importance of using racial identity to hire judges.
Out of 82 seats in the Commonwealth’s Superior Court, Justice Shannon Frison is one of two African-American justices.
“I’m a poor, black woman, from Chicago, who’s also gay and a Marine. You can’t replicate that experience,” said Frison.
It’s the first thing she said. I’m a black gay woman. Therefore I should be hired because I’m rare.
“No matter where you are and what you’ve done. How serious your matter is, what your ethnicity or race is, you’re almost guaranteed to be in front of a white judge in Massachusetts, on your criminal matter,” Frison said.
Oh look, a judge is telling people of color that if they get a white judge then they’re not going to be treated fairly. What a great way to instill confidence in our judicial system!
She was first appointed to Boston’s Municipal Court in 2009 by Governor Deval Patrick and confirmed to the Superior Court in 2013. No black judge has been appointed to the high court since. State data shows of the 374 trial court justices in the system, 39 are people of color. Yet, Census figures project that by 2020, minorities will make up more than a quarter of the state’s population.
“It’s too few for the people we serve,” said Frison.
Can we please stop with this bullshit? X percent of students are minorities, therefore X percent of teachers should be. X percent of people living in Boston are minorities, therefore X percent of cops and firefighters should be. How bout this? We hire the best people who apply for the job? I know, I know it might sound crazy, but it just may be the most effective way to run a functional society.
“Here in Massachusetts, not in all these other places we think are so different from us, but here in Massachusetts, we are still imposing higher bail on black and brown people and we are still imposing longer sentences on black and brown people,” she told WBZ. “You always need people of color when you’re talking about the effects that racism has had and still has.”
You’re a judge. You are the one imposing bail. So either you’re the one giving minorities higher bail, OR you’re giving people low bail and calling out the racist white judges who have the audacity to give real bail. Here she is on Twitter celebrating Rachael Rollins victory over the one judge in this state who actually attempted to enforce the law.
She’s not even attempting to hide her obvious bias.
“We’re not paying enough attention to this issue beyond having committees that talk about bias and inclusion. There has to be a real effort into recruiting judges of color,” said Frison.
Da fuq do you want? A career fair? This isn’t getting a job at Staples. I don’t want anyone becoming a judge if they need to be “recruited.” If you don’t care enough to go through the proper channels on your own then society owes you dick.
Judges are supposed to be fair and impartial, but also esteemed and worthy of our respect. I’m supposed to look at a judge and think, “That guy or gal is a really serious person.” They shouldn’t be just another ratchet on Twitter or Instagram, which is exactly what Dyke Tyson appears to be.
Why is a judge posting work selfies from the courthouse? What kind of fuckery is this? And I’m sorry, those tattoos are trashy. It’s cool if you get covered in tats, but judges are supposed to look like someone I can’t meet at ten cent wing night at the Kaz Bar.
On Twitter she’s constantly waxing identity politics, because it’s pretty much the only thing she has going for her.
She’s like Didi Delgado’s wet dream.
We can’t talk about diversity without talking about bias? You’re the most biased person I’ve ever seen.
She posted a picture on her IG of a name tag she wore recently at what appears to be an event for LGBTQ judges, which of course contained her pronouns.
If you list your pronouns and they match your biological and genetic identity, then I already know everything I need to know about you.
She recently retweeted an article heaping praise on Cook County DA Kim Foxx.
The same corrupt Chicago politician who dropped the charges against Jussie Smollett.
She’s also the best judge ever. Even ask her.
Way to stay humble!
It boggles my mind that this woman somehow became a judge. She’s the poster child for why diversity is the most overrated thing ever. Don’t get me wrong, I think diversity, when it happens naturally, is a great thing. It’s good that people are exposed to people who don’t look like them. But when we pretend that making ratchets into judges is a good thing simply because she checks off a bunch of diversity boxes, this is what you get.
