Obama Judicial Nominee Supports Sexual Predators

Posted by The MaryHunter at March 10, 2010 8:15 AM

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Chatigny was nominated by Barack Obama to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Dear Leader referred to him as a"first-rate" legal expert and "faithful" public servant. One revered class of the public that Judge Chatigny is faithful to contains sexual predators and serial murderers.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Chatigny gained notoriety in 2005 for his role in trying to fight the execution of convicted serial killer and rapist Michael Ross, also known as The Roadside Strangler, whom Chatigny had described as a victim of his own "sexual sadism."
His conduct in that case, which included threatening to go after Ross' attorney's law license, as well as his ruling in 2001 against sex offender registries created under Megan's Law, has caused a commotion among Republicans on the judiciary panel.

What, the Democrats didn't stir as well? It can't be -- after all, they're for the little people.

A few years before the standoff over the execution, Chatigny had also issued a ruling that Connecticut's sex offender registry was not constitutional. Though the federal appeals court upheld the ruling, it was later unanimously reversed by the Supreme Court.

Thankfully, the Senate Judiciary Committee has postponed Judge Chatigny's hearing. This touchy-feely, criminal's rights liberal appears dead-set against representing the victims and potential victims of sexual criminals.

What we need are more judges to fight for Hannibal Lecter's rights.
