Caleb Gee reblogged this on United States Hypocrisy and commented:

Whether the Judge feels guilt over technically being "forced" to hand out such an extreme sentence, a sentence that has ruined the lives of an entire family, the fact is that he allowed himself to be an agent of evil by doing what he was told instead of resigning his position. Although I do not want to pass eternal judgement on this Judge (whereas his job description does entail passing eternal judgement on people), the truth is that evil cannot be carried out without both the willing and the not-so-willing foot soldiers alike who fail to take a stand against injustice. What's more, this case is no anomaly. Millions of families have been ripped apart by the failed "War on Drugs".
