Simmons Says

No more death penalty for minors. (In Roper v. Simmons)

Continuing a trend intent on undermining US sovereignty, Justice Kennedy said, "It is proper that we acknowledge the overwhelming weight of international opinion against the juvenile death penalty..."

Continuing a trend of selective polls for judicial decisions Kennedy concluded, "our society views juveniles ... as categorically less culpable than the average criminal."

To his credit, Justice Scalia hammers out the real reason for the decision in his descent: "The Court says in so many words that what our people's laws say about the issue does not, in the last analysis, matter: 'In the end our own judgment will be brought to bear on the question of the acceptability of the death penalty. The Court thus proclaims itself sole arbiter of our nation's moral standards."

So in my last analysis we have decided against juvinile death penalty becasue we have become subjected to the laws of other nations and the application of what a few unelected people perceives as the direction of society.

And this is what the Dems are threatening to shut the gov't over if they can't sustain these types of judges. Great.
