I'm going to be honest. I haven't read either Graham v. Florida or United States v. Comstock, both handed down by the Supreme Court this morning. I don't need to, or care to, because sex offenders aren't my business.
But what I've read in the media is enough. Thanks to the Court's wisdom, we have the paradox in which a state may not sentence a 17 year old rapist to life in prison without parole, but when his sentence ends the federal government may imprison him without a trial until his bones rot, on the say-so of a psychiatrist.
Bear in mind that in order to have convicted our 17 year old in the first place, the sentencing court must have found him to be sane.
