Do you ever wonder WHO those insane judges are that believe sexual predators are only sick and should thus not be given maximum sentences? I think those judges are unfit to rule. However, President Obama apparently wants to give one a promotion.
Michael Ross, in a documentary on serial killers, describes how he tied up 14-year-old Leslie Shelley, put her in the trunk of his car, and “took the other girl, April Bernaise [also 14] out and I raped her, and killed her, and I put her in the front seat.” He said he killed eight girls, ages 14-25, and if he wasn’t caught, he’d still be killing.
It was of this man that Robert Chatigny, a U.S. District Judge in Connecticut, said: “[Michael Ross] never should have been convicted. Or if convicted, he never should have been sentenced to death.” Then Chatigny fought to stop Mr. Ross’ execution — twice — and was both times overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Robert Chatigny is President Obama’s latest nominee to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, a lifetime appointment spot and can be a stepping stone to the Supreme Court (the 3nd Circuit is where Justice Alito once sat). If President Obama thinks his nominees are all fine and good, then why shouldn’t the American people? Obviously for lots of reasons.
To even think of a judge sitting on one of the highest courts in the land who so clearly sides with a serial killer and rapist rather than with the women — or merely the facts of the case — is nauseating.
Chatigny was grilled by Republican Senators recently in his Judiciary Committee hearing. Only one Democrat Senator showed up, and she asked no hard questions of the rapist defender. Here’s a shocking video from the hearing, interspersed with an interview from Michael Ross himself on how he killed and raped his victims.
President Obama needs to withdraw Robert Chatigny’s nomination immediately. I truly hope that the feminist groups join in CWA’s opposition to this nominee. Anyone who claims to defend women has a responsibility to join us! Contact your Senators and tell them to vote “NO” on Chatigny’s confirmation.
