What the hell is going on in Massachusetts?
Representative James Fagan that's what. He opposes Jessica's Law.
This is what he said:
"I'm gonna rip them apart," Fagan said of young victims during his testimony on the bill. "I'm going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined, that when they’re 8 years old, they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”
Fagan said as a defense attorney it would be his duty to do that in order to keep his clients free from a "mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions."
My question now is, how long the people of Massachusetts are going to allow that FREAK to represent them. Does he? Is he representing the wishes of his constituency?
Time will tell. Most people do not take lightly to behavior such as that. And most people will never forget it come voting season.
