In full disclosure, I have not yet had the opportunity to read the whole thread, but wanted to weigh in on the OP.
Um, how can the Supremem Court, the ultimate court in the land, hand down a decision that essentially guts the entire judicial process and turn the
justice department into a kangaroo court???
I'm not advocating for sex offenders - they are disgusting people! BUT... they were arrested and
tried for their crimes. A jury of their peers reviewed the evidence and sentenced them. That sentence, barring any further illegal behavior while
serving, should be the extent of the the punishment rendered. If the offender has such an agregious record, couldn't the jury simply sentence them
to life without parole?
I find this decision to be completely misguided and furthers the consolidation of power with the government and aay from the people. Look for this
decision to become precendent in future cases where habeus corpus and other such rights are completely tossed aside. Not good.
