These Are Some of the Monsters Ketanji Brown Jackson Protected; Convicted Child Rapist Nabbed for Assault After Lax Sentence from Ketanji Brown Jackson

These Are Some of the Monsters Ketanji Brown Jackson Protected:
Senate Republicans mishandled the Ketanji Brown Jackson hearings in the familiar way that politicians do. There were too many efforts by individual politicians to play to their social media audiences. And the hearings went ahead without the full release or availability of materials on her caseload.
While some conservatives opposed making the hearings about her work in child abuse cases, the material that is emerging continues to be horrifying.
I'm not one for trigger warnings, but I would strongly urge caution in following the link. And I'm only going to quote so much of it here.
What becomes obvious is that Ketanji Brown Jackson protected a level of unmitigated evil that we have not seen from any Supreme Court nominee until now and Senate Republicans failed to properly make the case in a coherent and unified manner.
In the eight child-porn cases that came before her court, former D.C. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson heard horrifying details of “sadomasochistic” torture of young kids — including “infants and toddlers” — yet challenged the disturbing evidence presented by prosecutors and disregarded their prison recommendations to give the lightest possible punishments in each case, according to transcripts of sentencing hearings obtained by the Post.

Convicted child rapist nabbed for assault after lax sentence from Ketanji Brown Jackson:
Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson doled out a lenient sentence to a child rapist for violating probation — and he allegedly struck again during the time when prosecutors wanted him locked up, The Post has learned.
The Biden nominee’s handling of sex offender Leo Weekes’ case emerged in a tranche of court filings and transcripts sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday — just days before the panel is set to vote on whether to report her nomination to the full Senate.
While Republicans have previously highlighted Jackson’s practice of giving the lightest possible punishments in child pornography cases, the Weekes case throws into question her treatment of rapists, as well.
“This case is yet another example of information coming to light after the nomination hearing concluded because of the Democrats’ rushed vetting process,” a Republican Judiciary Committee aide told The Post Saturday.
‘A life of dishonesty’
In 2010, Weekes was convicted in DC Superior Court of raping his 13-year-old niece four years earlier. He was sentenced to 16 months in jail and four years of supervised probation and was required to register as a sex offender for the next decade, according to records obtained by The Post. --->READ MORE HERE
