It's okay to have an opinion, express it publicly but with some degree of restraint especially if you are a judge. But,to make some outrageous display regarding a very sensitive and controversial matter like the death penalty is way out of line for a judge.

No public comments will be taken at the meeting. SOS Mark Martin's office must sign off on the panel's decision.
