Michigan Judge Locks Up Father Who Criticized Her On Facebook

In a shocking example of judicial overreach, a judge who was unhappy that a man was criticizing her on Facebook had him arrested by local authorities. 

Jonathan Vanderhagen criticized, but did not threaten, a Macomb County, Michigan judge on Facebook after the death of his son. He had attempted to gain sole custody of the two-year-old boy, claiming the boy’s mother was unfit, but was denied by the judge. His son later died in the custody of his mother.

Vanderhagen has been blaming the judge and the court on Facebook ever since his son’s death, which did not sit well with the judge. She said she felt “threatened,” so she called the police and had him arrested. Police “specifically found no evidence of any threats,” but now Vanderhagen is in jail on a $500,000 bond.
