STOCKTON - A day after a San Joaquin County judge was attacked by a murder defendant wielding a six-inch metal shank, court activities resumed as normal and investigators are trying to figure out how the weapon was smuggled into the courtroom.

On Thursday, the Stockton courthouse was notably quiet, and Judge Cinda Fox's courtroom was sealed off as the investigation continues.

    Here is the irony in this... as a member of the law abiding GENERAL PUBLIC you can't get into the Courthouse even to pay a TRAFFIC TICKET without going through a metal detector.Apparently if you're a violent murderer you get to go to COURT without going through a metal detector.And somewhere in county lockup, there is a pair of scissors missing that no one has accounted for.

    Defendants don't usually have access to anyone in the gallery, so it seems doubtful his family or friends could have given him the weapon inside the courthouse.

    With his extensive crime sheet how was he ever allowed to be free? This guy should have never been released from Folsom. He had more than his share of chances to get his life together. I'm glad everyone is safe and thankful that Eric Bradley was observing this guy and that he had his weapon. At least now we won't be paying for his up keep in prison.

    They're overlooking the obvious... an accomplice planted the blade somewhere accessible to the inmate after he entered the courtroom. It's fashioned to look like it could be made in jail to make it look like he brought it in himself.

    I would be FIRING some deputies for not searching a KNOWN Angry and Violent suspect. I also would make all prisoners go thru the metal detector scan like airports!

    What a tragic story both for the victim and the perpetrator. However, looking at the chronology of his life...I wonder why we're surprised. To think that by locking him up and throwing away the key at some point in his screwed up life, this tragedy could have been prevented. UNBELIEVABLE....
