I am SOOOOO angry
I try not to let the actions of others anger me because I in doing so I relinquish control of my emotions to people I don't know. However, as a parent, this enrages me more than I can begin to express. Fresh on the heels of a Becker County judge releasing Joseph Edward Duncan III so that he can kidnap and rape and murder the family of Shasta Groene, we have another judge in Dakota County releasing another level 3 sex offender back into the community!
I don't understand what these judges are thinking. Do they have children? Do they have daughters? Don't the realize that they are putting their childrens safety at risk? Do they care more about the health and well being of these offenders or their families? What will it take for us as a society to say "enough is enough! Lock these people up and throw away the key!!!!!"?
It is time to reform the judicial election process in Minnesota! We, the people that put these irresponsible judges in the positions that they are in, must know the philosophical and judicial temperment of these judges. If it means aligning them along the "political party lines" then so be it! At least we (the voters of Minnesota) will know what we are getting when we put these judges in office.
