The United States Supreme Court leftists have once again decided to crush the Constitution and the 10th Amendment by striking down a juvenile sentencing law simply because they don’t like it personally and–the most outrageous reason–because they cited the fact that other countries have long since abandoned this practice.
And this despite the fact that individual states have already passed such laws in their own states. SCOTUS simply threw them out by the the catch all of the 8th Amendment’s ban on so-called cruel and unusual punishment.
Again, the great black robed ones need to assert their higher level of decency on us plebes in the states because we can’t possibly know what is best for us in our own states.
