Cashman + Hulett = Brain Droppings

Brain Droppings has a valid take on the Judge Edward Cashman/Mark Hulett issue.
Media Distorts 60 Day Rape Sentence: "The WCAZX-TV report sensationalized the story, omitting the sound, logical elements of the Judge Cashman's legal rationale for the sentence. It was outrageously misleading; whether deliberate or not the reporter should be fired.

Judge Cashman clearly deserves opprobrium for his remarks about revenge and his attitude toward punnishing criminals. He deserves to be removed from the bench.

But the greatest outrage remains the sentence itself. Taking the judge at his word, that this was the most effectual sentence he could impose, the Vermont legislature seems to bear the bulk of the blame for creating this situation. It would seem public anger is best directed at them."
