MUST OR SHOULD?
Canon 1: A judge should uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary. ("Public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary is maintained by the adherence of each judge to this responsibility.") Although judges should be independent, they and should comply with this Code. Adherence to this responsibility helps to maintain public confidence in the must comply with the law impartiality of
Conversely, violation of this Code diminishes public confidence in the judiciary and injures our system of government under law.
Canon 2: A judge should avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety in all activities. ("A judge must expect to be the subject of constant public scrutiny. A judge must therefore accept restrictions that might be viewed as burdensome by the ordinary citizen and should do so freely and willingly.")
Respect for Law.
A. judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.
B. Outside Influence. A judge should not allow family, social, political, financial, or other relationships to influence judicial conduct or judgment. A judge should neither lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others nor convey or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge. A judge should not testify voluntarily as a character witness.
The behavior that neither resulted in a conviction nor even an arrest but that was facially unlawful, and in any event a very chilling indication of the consideration as to how likely it is that he would commit further crimes is that he undoubtedly and indisputably set up this killercop.com web site; tried to arrest via citizen's arrest a law enforcement officer carrying out his duties in a courthouse; the indication that his wife has made, I'm not making any findings but it's in the record, and it resulted in an issuance of a domestic restraining order in New Hampshire that he was prone to violence or at least she claimed; and the demeanor that she displayed when she testified at the trial I find to be not only consistent with that but probably the result of that.
It was a demeanor combining both ~JUDGE A. HOWARD MATZ, DURING profound fear and embarrassment as well as enmity." ILLEGAL SENTENCING HEARING OF KILLERCOP

invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, or national origin.
Canon 3: A judge should perform the duties of the office impartially and diligently. ("A judge shall disqualify himself or herself in a proceeding in which the judge's impartiality might reasonably be questioned, including but not limited to instances in which the judge has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party ... ")
Canon 4: A judge may engage in extrajudicial activities to improve the law, the legal system and the administration of justice. ("A judge, subject to the proper performance of judicial duties, may engage in ... law-related activities, if in doing so the judge does not cast reasonable doubt on the capacity to decide impartially any issue that may come before the judge.")
Canon 5: A judge should regulate extrajudicial activities to minimize the risk of conflict with judicial duties. ("Complete separation of a judge from extrajudicial activities is neither possible nor wise; a judge should not be isolated from the society in which the judge lives. The changing nature of some organizations and of their relationship to the law makes it necessary for a judge regularly to reexamine the activities of each organization with which the judge is affiliated to determine if it is proper for the judge to continue the judge's relationship with it. For example, in many jurisdictions charitable hospitals are now more frequently in court than in the past.")
Canon 6: A judge should regularly file reports of compensation received for law-related and extrajudicial activities. ("A judge may receive compensation and reimbursement of expenses for the law-related and extra-judicial activities permitted by this Code, if the source of such payments does not give the appearance of influencing the judge in the judge's judicial duties or otherwise give the appearance of impropriety...").

Any justice, judge or magistrate of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which
his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.
