Supreme Justice Nominee

May 27, 2009 at 3:48 pm (Government)

Sotomayor has been nominated by President Obama. Some people see this as a racial card, however, her reputation and skills as a judiciary set her apart from the crowd. She has had many years of experience and knowing that she has been on every level of the judiciary branch signifies that she knows multiple view points and will look at the cases before the judges fairly and rationally. There is a lot of fuss about Pres. Obama picking her because she is from the projects and she’s Hispanic. I find that she has the skills needed and her socio-economic background means very little. Her abilities is what should be looked at and when the congregational floor meets and adjourns I hope they make a fair decision based on those qualifications. Please contact you Senators and tell them to support fairness in the judiciary.

The NPR link for the article can be read here

There has been an article published by CNN that has marred her and questioned her competency. The article can be read here. The troubling part is the lack of evidence that was used to make the claim. There was no credentials that signify this and nothing to back up the claim. Was CNN using a misleading quote and is that a part of freedom of the press to twist and skew as they see fit?

Torture Memo Investigation

May 5, 2009 at 8:53 pm (Ethics on Torture)

 

This Article was on NPR and can be read here. Is this Justice? The article is about the three lawyers that were involved in the “Torture Memo”. This is an update on the 2 year investigation on the lawyers. The Three of them will be disbarred from ever working as an Attorney again. However, They will more then likely not face Criminal charges due to the lack of proof of knowingly creating an immoral ethical document concerning the treatment of detainees and the use of “Harsh Investigation” techniques. The Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich has given a draft of the case against the three Attorney’s to them and they were to review it by the 4th of May. Should they be given a chance to review the case? This is a good move I believe for the US to hold to the idea of a fair trial. Should they be held directly responsible or should there be more blame on the Administration that allowed these Memos to be used? This is a good step foreword into the direction of reclaiming some ground internationally as a Country if they are held accountable.
