Judge Cashman and Vermont Followup

Judge Cashman was not required to complete the resentencing of the "60 Day Rapist" this past Friday. A formal request from the prosecution will necessitate some formal response from Judge Cashman in ten days. As of the evening of Thursday, 12 January, Judge Cashman indicated that he has no plans to change his sentencing.

Meanwhile, in Vermont, the former chief justice of the Vermont Supreme Court has come out in support of Judge Cashman. Why not? Birds of a feather flock together. He called Cashman a conservative and prudent judge. Do you think the raped woman who appeared before him a few years ago would agree? Cashman told her that her being raped was just one of the harsh realities of life. That reminds us of truly one of the worst comments from the past we have heard: If you are being raped, you may as well just lie back and enjoy it.

Vermont's House of Representatives can impeach Judge Cashman, but the Speaker, Gaye Symington, has rushed the Cashman matter into committee and barred the door to prevent any timely consideration. Symington, according to the photographs of her, is an old granola girl who looks like she has not gotten over the 1960s.

The governor of Vermont twists like a weathervane. If he keeps wetting his finger to find out which way the political wind is blowing, he will have the most crenelated finger in Vermont. He needs to make a consistent stand, for the right.

Bill O'Reilly had a Vermont legislator, a Democrat, on the O'Reilly Factor on 13 January. The legislator expressed outrage about Judge Cashman. As for what to do, he took the position of the Democrat dominated House in Vermont of letting this matter be resolved by not reappointing the judge when his term is up. That is over a year from now. Cashman's superior could remove him from cases immediately, by the way, but is not visible. O'Reilly properly protested letting Cashman hear more cases for at least another year, but the Democrat legislator remained soft and gooey.

Lastly, power Democrats in Vermont are pointing out that Cashman is a conservative Republican. Is this true? We don't know. Who cares? He is a menace who needs immediate neutralization. Irrationality is not confined to the Left, the Right, the mushy center, to Democrats, Republicans, or any others.

Wrong is wrong. Vermont needs to move swiftly to turn this wrong into right.

    I don't necessarily support the judge's decision, but O'Reilly is avoiding reporting the motives behind the decision.

    PS: You can find the video of O'Reilly's interview with Vermont's Attorney general here:

    I have heard O'Reilly talking about the social engineering motivation. I do not know if there is something else. It seems that he has covered quite a lot across multiple days.

    Justice demands judging, not social engineering. The latter should come from the A.G. and legislature of Vermont, but these people act like they are in a state of shared coma.
