Supreme Court Wusses Out On Sending Kids To Jail For Life, And More

News

The big decision we've all been waiting for isfinally in: "The Supreme Court ruled Monday that it is unconstitutional for states to require juveniles convicted of murder to be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole." DOWN WITH THE COURT. Then what's the point of waking up in the morning, now? "Monday’s decision left open the possibility that judges could sentence juveniles to life without parole in individual cases of murder, but said state laws cannot automatically impose such a sentence." So they're saying there's a chance. Phew. Other non-Obamacare law stuff that our nine gods wasted their time on today include (a) money and (b) Mexicans, in Arizona.


Aside from the fact that four Supreme Court justices think children should be allowed to receive sentences of life in jail without parole, here's today's other big news.

  • Much of SB 1070, the cherished Arizona racism law, was thrown out: "The court ruled that Arizona cannot make it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to carry identification that says whether they are in the United States legally; cannot make it a crime for undocumented immigrants to apply for a job; and cannot arrest someone based solely on the suspicion that the person is in this country illegally." On the other hand, if the coppers have already nabbed you for jaywalking or smoking the reefer or whatever, "papers, please" still applies: "However, the court let stand the part of the law that requires police to check the immigration status of anyone they detain, if there is 'reasonable suspicion' that the person is unlawfully in the United States." So remember, Mexitrons, if they ever catch you for something, put on your George H.W. Bush Halloween masks as usual.
  • Some had thought that the Court might have been "reconsidering" Citizens United by hearing a Montana campaign finance case. Ha ha ha, idiots. They were just hearing it to reinforce Citizens United, forever: "The Supreme Court on Monday effectively overturned a century-old Montana law that prohibited corporate spending on political races in the state, ruling 5-4 that the measure violates the First Amendment rights of companies to spend funds on elections." It'll be steak dinners tonight, for the corporations.

The health care reform decision will come on Thursday. Do any bloggers out there have some cocaine to share?

Ann Coulter is not impressed with Donald Trump's presumptuous plan to stop ripping babies away from their mothers and sending them to infant prison. For quite a while, Ann has been obsessively lamenting the very idea that American people even have children to "fill their lives with joy," but now (lol, "now") Ann has shifted her rage to immigrant people. Every time you watch her waving her alien-length arms around in a ritualistic frenzy over how shitty liberals are, just remember that we have already seen the emptiness of her soul laid bare. Remember that time she wanted to eat your baby because you got a tax credit?

It's just another Wednesday in an America that snatched kids from their parents and locked them up in old Walmarts. Trump just signed an unneeded executive order ending his heinous child separation policy, but his "the bad guy mobster in a mobster movie" tactics might've had some permanent damage. What remains of the shriveled-up soul of the grand old poor-screwing Republican party has finally had enough.
