Amazing. Two Supreme Court decisions came down yesterday and they are both travesties of anything that looks remotely like justice. First, we got CJ Roberts...well, here's the opening graf of Adam Liptak's NYT article, one of the most jaw-dropping ledes I think I've ever read.
The Right-wing Bush court has just thrown the Constitution out the window because - dig this - it got in the way of a state's right to be stoopid, mean, and vengeful on the wrong guy's ass and - in Alito's words - gave prisoners a new excuse "to play games with the criminal justice system.” Mind you, defendants are not even allowed to provide the tests at their own expense. It's all up to the states. Because, you know, it always has been.
