Newton’s Third Law has to do with actions and the consequences of actions. That law says essentially every action brings an equal and opposite reaction. The blog today deals with both actions and inactions. It deals with a young woman by the name of Kate Steinle and her death…and the lack of an equitable jury conviction on that charge. This jury, instead, came back with a poor second-level conviction of the person, a felon, being in possession of a firearm.
Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez is an illegal alien convicted seven times of a felony. He has been deported five times (and obviously illegally returns to our country), but he also was aware of San Francisco’s ‘sanctuary’ policies. It is what you and I would call a ‘Sanctuary City’. Our current Attorney General made this statement: “When jurisdictions choose to return criminal aliens to the streets rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities, they put the public’s safety at risk. San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle. While the State of California sought a murder charge for the man who caused Ms. Steinle’s death – a man who would not have been on the streets of San Francisco if the city simply honored an ICE detainer – the people ultimately convicted him of ‘felon in possession’ of a firearm.”
We know the “Left Coast” has a reputation for liberal leniency, and it seems apparent that those who would take advantage of that bias also know of that reputation. This man simply claimed, “it was an accident” as his excuse and got off.
This is part of the whole piece, and that simply stated is the fact that liberal courts defy U.S. law with little to no fear of recourse. These judges are there and will not be moved out until they die or retire. There are many of the same ilk lined up politically to get appointed and to take their turn at rendering such feckless decisions that only result in worsening situations through intentional ‘ignorance’ of the laws on the books.
We obviously need a court system that is at least ‘somewhat’ balanced. We obviously need a legal system that operates beyond the bounds of simple politics. The legal system ought to be concerned with the proper enforcement of the law as it is written, not as they somehow find a convoluted rationale for making the law something it isn’t. There ought to be a price paid by judges who make such decisions based upon their political beliefs and not based on the law as they somehow find something that you or I couldn’t discern in years of study and effort.
The ‘Wall’ is so distasteful to these liberals apparently because it would eliminate the vast majority of illegals from ever getting into our country in the first place unless they did so legally. This would then ultimately end the liberal’s sanctions on the Left Coast, and they’d ultimately be obeying the law of the land instead of inventing various twists and turns in that law of the land. They seem to have created their own Left Coast world without regard to the laws of the land.
Those who would impose changes on our national elections through changing the way votes are counted ultimately in the Electoral College rather than by simple count of the votes obviously are of the same ilk. The Electoral College was implemented to avoid improper weight by virtue of population knowing that those of us in flyover country would lose our rights. Us conservatives simply have some mental incapacity that makes us ignoramuses that need be protected from ourselves, at least from the perspective of liberals.
We are also the group that would have had “The Wall” in place long ago, and that would do away with these liberal’s and their idea of a court system that, of course, ought to favor them since they are all-knowing and we’re simply country bumpkins.
The liberals deserve additional consequences for their actions such as this grievous miscarriage of justice that has, directly and indirectly, resulted in the death of a law-abiding citizen. The liberal sense of justice is from some distant planet, apparently, since it bears little or no resemblance to the conservative view of justice in my world.
