Nice try Palins!

An Alaska judge has rejected efforts by the eldest son of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin to bar the media and the public from attending proceedings in an assault case against him in a therapeutic court.

Judge David Wallace on Monday said in a written opinion that closing Track Palin’s hearings in Veterans Court to the public and the press “would violate the basic and fundamental principles set forth in long-standing precedent.”

However, Wallace did agree with Palin’s lawyer to bar still, video and cellphone cameras from the proceedings, saying it would protect the privacy of those participating in Veterans Courts.

“By allowing media reporters in the courtroom it has satisfied any perceived notions that the court is not open to the public,” Wallace wrote, who was appointed to the bench by Sarah Palin when she was Alaska’s governor. “And, the media will be able to fulfill what it perceives is its obligation to the public in covering the hearings involving this defendant.”The Associated Press and two Anchorage television stations, KTUU and KTVA, formally opposed Track Palin’s motion to outright bar the media from covering proceedings, or in the least, prevent cameras from being in the courtroom.

Well look at that, we DO still have the 1st Amendment in Trump’s America. 

So I guess Palin’s influence is starting to wane a little in Alaska. 

Gee, what a shame. 

Of course, it might have helped that numerous media outlets also pointed out that Judge Wallace was a Palin appointee.

    If Todd keeps saying, “who’s your daddy” to Track, he will get beaten up again.

    What kind of dills do the other folks in vet’s court get?

    oh boo Hoo HOO, poor Palins, no false narratives to run to TMZ/DM with, bending the story to their advantage for public consumption.
    See, that’s what happens when you’re infamous — “inquiring minds want to know!”

    Also too, Track, concerning your “little mishaps,’ there’s this little adage: If you don’t want anyone to know, don’t do it in the first place!

    “ast December, Track Palin, the son of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, attacked his dad, Todd Palin.

    The younger Palin said that he was under the influence of alcohol and pills when the fight occurred.

    As KTVA reports, an alternative court for veterans, has denied Palin’s request for a full ban on media coverage.

    An Anchorage Veterans Court judge has agreed to ban cameras, but will not bar reporting from covering the proceedings.

    Palin and his attorney claimed that the potential media circus that might ensure would be a “distraction” to other vets.”

      In the article I first read concerning this, the attorney came off as pushing the “fragility” of said vets and cameras would just add to their emotional state.
      That’s right, folks, coddle them especially if they’ve served. USA! USA! What a crock of crap! How do you think the “golden boy” got here?
      My poor baby, my poor warrior-bodied baby that thinks he’s above the law in every circumstance. Guess where that was taught? Not in the military!
      Domestic violence is a SERIOUS issue from all walks of life, and it will be a cold day in hades that I EVER feel sorry for Track CJ Palin.
      We may be “peasants,” HE is a pussy boy!

    When is Tracky Poo going to a big boys court?

    • Zoe June 13, 2018 at 2:35 am

      In a year or two. I feel a little bit sorry for Track. He has a serious drug and drinking and violence problem. None of this can be addressed as long as his mother gives him easy excuses. He will eventually do something that even he will regret.

    Poor Trackmarks, might…just might finally have to take responsibility for his own actions.
    My future prediction will be Trackmarks killing multiple members of his family.

      The RNC ’08 announcement, I had never heard of her and up they all came onstage. Know how that silent alarm goes off in your head? There is something VERY wrong in this picture that they’re trying to portray and, after a decade, I have yet to change that opinion.

      • anon June 12, 2018 at 7:10 pm

        So so many of us had the exact same feeling bout that family. And we were so right.

    • Anonymous June 12, 2018 at 7:51 pm

      Agree CFR. All four of Sarah’s biological children are losers, especially when you consider what they could have accomplished with all the unearned, undeserved advantages they have received as a result of Sarah’s place in the political spotlight in 2008. IMO it’s just a matter of time until Track’s rage results in him committing murder. Besides himself, who does Track hate the most?

    Track may have “served,” if you call driving brass around as an absolute nothing in rank in what many lost life and limb for.
    Mommie Dearest pulled strings, you betcha, and why I laugh at the hand over her heart , god bless ’em act she puts on.
    That is one loser family, and about time that they get their comeuppance.

    What a joke, he never followed the rulings from the last time he was in veteran’s court.

    Media circus, I doubt it, me thinks the palins think they are very important people. Except for the folks in AK that may end up dead because of this out of control wacko, nobody else cares about baby bumpkins track palin.

    I’m surprised his lawyer is still able to pluck the “veteran” violin, but I’m sure that once the judge hears the recordings of his ugly threats to Jordan it’ll be the last time Track Palin gets a soft serve. A lot of us are married to veterans with PTSD and they have never terrified us that way and blamed it on NON-COMBAT service. Track Palin is a garden variety violent criminal, not the fucked-up war hero of his mother’s fever dreams.

    Sporting a nondescript sunglasses and hat combo, Track Palin attempted to avoid cameras in court by hiding in a bathroom before rescheduling his change of plea hearing to Tuesday, for which cameras will be allowed in the courtroom

    “ANCHORAGE (KTUU) — Track Palin, son of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is expected to change his plea in Anchorage Veterans Court Tuesday morning, where therapy and not punishment is the main consequence for bad behavior.

    Palin was scheduled to change his plea Monday, but changed his mind after running away from cameras in the hallway of the courthouse.

    Track Palin, 29, was arrested on Dec. 16 after his mother Sarah called Wasilla police to report a domestic disturbance between Track and Todd Palin at family home on Lucile Lake.”

    He keeps getting it delayed doesn’t he? Looks like there will be yet another hearing (likely to be postponed) on the 23rd. How the hell do these people continue to get away with their crappy behavior?
