Making It Up As We Go Along

I am opposed to the death penalty, and as such, I support laws barring the executions of minors. BUT, I am much more opposed to judges deciding important policy (i.e. legislative) questions of the day and couching their decisions on constitutional law. I expect this of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, but now the US Supreme Court wants in on the action. Disgusting.

Read both the majority opinion and the dissents in Roper v. Simmons. And if you don’t have time, then don’t miss George Will’s latest opinion piece on the subject, Wrong On All Counts.
