Legislators rebel against the judiciary

Postby Tom Flapwell » Thu Jun 26, 2008 2:52 pm

Unbowed, politicians vow to execute child rapists

Let's put aside for the moment, if we can, the issue of whether the Supreme Court made the right decision. I for one am appalled at these politicians. They apparently do not respect the very system of checks and balances.

To me, few qualities in a politician could be more disqualifying.

While I don't believe that it was the SC's place to make any decision on this issue (it wasn't really a Constitutionality question), the law must be respected. Lawmen who basically say "pants the law" have no business being lawmen.

COMPLETELY agreed.
