We shared this item on the shooting of a judge outside his home in Chicago earlier this month.

Now according to the National Judicial College, a survey says most judges are more fearful.

Less than a week before that shooting, the NJC’s Question of the Month asked alumni if they feared for their safety more so than in the past. Among the 1,186 who responded, 58 percent said they were more fearful. A sampling of the comments, representing both sides, appears at the end of this article.
