WASHINGTON — Congress should have sought the judiciary's advice before limiting the ability of judges to impose lighter sentences than
specified in federal guidelines, the nation's top judge says...
Rehnquist: Congress Should Have Sought Judiciary's Advice - Foxnews.com
The scariest part of the Feeny amendment is that "it reduces federal judges' discretion in sentencing criminals, and requires reports to Congress on
any judge who departs from sentencing guidelines."
Ashcroft is collecting information on judges that depart from his his extremist ideals. It is amazing how The Patriot Act sailed through congress and
got signed into law. It is even more amazing that people in this country either don't have a clue or don't give a rat's ass.
I know this isn't new stuff to most of you, but it drives me nuts that a major news source like Foxnews can publish a story like this and STILL the
general public has no clue about any of this or the implications.
