Democrats Vote In Lockstep To Recommend "Sexual Sadism Is An Exonerating Factor" Judge To Second Circuit

Only one Democrat withheld a "yes" vote -- Dianna Feinstein abstained.

The Republicans all voted no.

He's a swell guy all around. When he says he believes Sexual Sadism should count as a mitigating factor which either reduces one's sentence or absolves one completely from criminal guilt, he isn't kidding around.

And he's not just a serial-killer jocksniffer, you know, one of those guys who treats serial killers as celebrities deserving of special treatment. I mean, he is that, too, but he is willing to apply his sexual-sadism-gets-you-reduced-sentencing theory more broadly:

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Judge Robert Chatigny to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday on a largely party-line vote despite stiff GOP opposition over his handling of child pornography and rape cases as a district court judge. With Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) abstaining on the vote, the committee’s other 11 Democrats approved the nomination Thursday morning, while the committee’s entire seven-member contingent of Republicans voted ‘no.’ In a series of cases involving defendants found guilty of child pornography, rape and sexual assault cases, Chatigny used the process of downward departure to reduce their sentences.

Question that should be asked until we get a straight answer: Why did Diane Feinstein abstain?

Was it because she didn't think she could retain her feminism cred while supporting a judge who thinks rape is something dangerously close to a male right? Or, at least, something that mustn't be counted against us too much?

Of course that's the reason -- so if she has that kind of reservations about this bastard, what the hell is she merely abstaining for, and what are her bastard Democratic colleagues doing promoting him?


Note... That in most codes, "sexual torture" and such like is counted as an aggravating factor in murder that can qualify you for the noose.

This judge insists that not only isn't an aggravating factor, it's a mitigating factor, and, indeed, can be an exonerating factor.

He questions whether most serial killers should be on death row at all, or even in prison at all.

PS: If you're going to kill someone in New York, you should really consider doing it in t sexual-sadist style, binding you victim and cutting her slowly to death. Throw in a rape while you're there.

It just might get you a shorter sentence. Hell, it just might save your life.
