MA: Nominee’s comments make her unfit for Supreme Judicial Court

BOSTON (State House News Service) – Superior Court Judge Kimberly Budd’s “ideological statements” have “no place on the Supreme Judicial Court and render her unfit to serve as a justice,” according to Rep. Shaunna O’Connell, a Taunton Republican. …

Under questioning by Governor’s Councilor Robert Jubinville, Budd also said she thinks there are too many crimes included on the Sex Offender Registry, including people who don’t need to be on the listing.  “Not from my professional experience, but just hearing about people who wind up on the registry that don’t necessarily need to be there and aren’t really sex offenders,” Budd said.

I still haven’t found where in the Constitution does it state that people have a RIGHT to know anything about anyone. I must have missed that right…also these media fear mongers always falsely state that only the most dangerous people are on the seems that somehow something can be done when these reports contain false information like that…

She is right-There are over 900,000 people registered now. If there were that many dangerous sex offenders in public, they would be on the news constantly. It is a politician dog & pony show is all, we could have a air marshall on every flight for what is spent on that registry.

Like I always say, courts are all about politics. And push button issues like immigration & sex offender registry are apparent red flags to bicker about by this Taunton Massachusetts republican
