The Florida judge who oversaw the penalty trial of Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz should be publicly reprimanded for showing bias toward the prosecution, failing to curtail “vitriolic statements” directed at Cruz's attorneys by the victims' families and sometimes allowing “her emotions to overcome her judgement,” a state commission concluded Monday.
