Complaint alleges Federal Judge is biased
Liz Bugarin stashed this in -isms
"Among her statements:
That certain “racial groups like African Americans and Hispanics are predisposed to crime,” are “'prone' to commit acts of violence,” and get involved in more violent and “heinous” crimes than people of other ethnicities;
That Mexican nationals would prefer to be on death row in the United States rather than serving prison terms in Mexico, and it is an insult for the United States to look to the laws of other countries such as Mexico;
That Defendants' claims of racism, innocence, arbitrariness, and violations of international law and treaties are really nothing more than “red herrings” used by opponents of capital punishment;
That claims of “mental retardation” by capital defendants disgust her, and the fact such persons were convicted of a capital crime is itself sufficient to prove they are not in fact “mentally retarded”; and
That the imposition of a death sentence provides a positive service to capital-case defendants because defendants are likely to make peace with God only in the moment before their imminent execution."
Seriously, she's a judge. I'm sure in San Antonio she saw a trend, but wouldn't she have been intelligent enough to think it's more the environment a person is raised in than a person's ethnicity that makes them commit crimes? No? Am I really the one expecting too much from her to hope that she would have thought that??
