No Justice

Heard this on the radio this afternoon & confirmed it here. A 34-year old man was sentenced to 60 days for repeatedly raping a 7-year old girl over a period of 4 years. The judge of the case stated that he no longer believed in punishment, and would rather have the offender undergo rehabilitation. Of course, the family of the girl (now 11) is heartbroken.

Exactly what is the criminal code? It prescribes punishments for criminal offenses, and is referred to by judges as a guideline for sentencing convicted criminals. It should not be overridden by a judge's beliefs. Obviously, the victim's rights were ignored by this miserable excuse of a human being, and justice for this little girl & the hell she went through were not considered.

There is a movement to remove this judge. GOOD!! The sooner you get rid of that miserable son of a female dog, the better. Little consolation to the family, though.

In the meantime, it's obvious that Burlington, Vermont is not a family friendly town.

This judge should indeed be removed!!! Does this Judge not understand that this victim has been sentenced to life? A life-time of flash-backs, psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual damage? This Judge is a disgrace to the legal community and the nation at large!

Unfortuately, I have found out that unless the judge resigns, the only way he can be removed is by voting for his opponent during the next election. I do understand that there is a petition drive to call for him to resign. Stay tuned to the news to see what happens.

Tom ... dude ... this Judge should not only be removed partner ... but he should be stuck outside one of those mosques I was talking about in my last post. I'm sure he'd look good in Pig Blood.

While I do not advocate violence to remove this judge, I do wonder if someone is going to go the tar & feathers route to "convince" him of the error of his ways...
