Who gets the second chance?

Let’s talk about two Brett. The first is Brett Kavanaugh of the Supreme Court. In 2018, Kavanaugh was definitely accused of committing sexual assault at the age of 17. A cultural war broke out soon. The Liberal Party mainly argued that the accusation should exclude Kavanaugh from his lifelong appointment in the Supreme Court. On the other hand, the right shouted, “Cancel the culture.” Even if Kavanaugh was guilty of his accusations, they insisted that what you did as a teenager should not ruin your rest of your life.

“I don’t know why the drunken behavior of a 17-year-old high school student tells us something about the character of a 53-year-old judge,” said Rod, a senior editor of a conservative American editor.・ Dreaer says. Tweet, For example. “I’m not the same person as when I was 17, which is a terrible standard for establishing in public life.”

Kavanaugh himself claimed that his teen was irrelevant. “If we want to sit here and talk about whether the Supreme Court nomination should be based on the high school yearbook page, I think it took us to a new level of absurdity,” he ridiculed. Did During public hearing..

Let’s meet the second bullet.Brett Johns’ life from birth Violence stands outHis real father was an alcoholic who abused Jones’ mother, and his stepfather was also abusive. In 2004, when he was 15, Jones was arrested for stabbing and killing his grandfather in a domestic conflict. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole and has been detained ever since. Jones should obviously be held accountable for what he did. However, being held accountable is very different from being revoked as irreparable. Does Jones’ crime mean he’s beyond rehab? Should Jones, who is currently sentenced to life imprisonment at the age of 31, be denied the opportunity to prove that a 15-year-old is not the same as today’s?

On Thursday, the Supreme Court virtually said he and other juvenile criminals Denied the opportunity.. In a 6-3 ruling in support of Jones’ ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that the juvenile murderer did not need to show that he was beyond rehab before he was sentenced to life behind the prison. .. Kavanaugh, who wrote the majority opinion, argued that this decision was merely precedent. However, as Judge Sonia Sotomayor wrote in her fierce dissenting opinion, the Supreme Court did not release the judge without parole, except in very rare cases where the child was found to be beyond rehab. I have previously decided that life imprisonment should not be imposed.

“How low is the respect of this court? [respect for precedent] It sank, “written Sotomayor. “The court is willing to dismiss the precedent without even admitting that it is, let alone provide any special justification.”

“Many aspects of Jones’ crime seem to symbolize unfortunate but temporary immaturity,” Sotomayor added. There is little evidence that Jones is a monster. There is plenty of evidence that he had a traumatic childhood. Since being convicted, he has worked to maintain a good record in prison and obtain a GED.

Jones, remember, didn’t ask too much. He did not seek a lifetime appointment in the Supreme Court. He didn’t even ask for release. As Sotomayor pointed out, he and about 1,500 juvenile delinquents sentenced to life imprisonment without parole wanted “at some point in their lives, they would rehabilitate themselves.” It was an opportunity to show the parole committee everything he had done to seek a second chance. ”Cabanot cried angry when people judged his past, and these people had that opportunity. Decided not to get.

I don’t know if there is a better example of “cancelling culture” than deciding that children should be locked in for the rest of their lives and not given the opportunity to prove that they have changed. Still, many who usually oppose “cultural cancellation” are surprisingly silent about this decision. This reminds us that many of these “unawakening warriors” are fundamentally dishonest. When they talk about “cultural cancellation,” what many of them really mean is that people like them should not be held accountable for their mistakes. They should get a second, third and fourth chance. What about everyone else? Who cares if they get little even the first chance in life?
