I have no idea whether Gen Risner was involved in cockfighting. As far as I know the only connection was through the squadron name, which was established long before he was assigned there.
Don't know where you can get a patch. That's mostly a unit thing, but perhaps you can find patch collectors on eBay or the web that could hook you up.
As far as the Supreme Court judge in Alabama, he really fell on his sword over the Commandments. When he had them placed in the Supreme Court lobby, you gotta know he was aware of what would happen. Between his actions and the public statements he made during the controversy, he was using the issue to make a point in public that the ACLU and crew were removing religious underpinnings from the legal system. As expected, higher legal authority eventually rolled in and overrode him.
Gotta give him credit for guts, though.
