June 26th, 2008 - VICTORY FOR FREEDOM.
5-4 decision - Souter, Ginsberg, Stevens & Breyer dissenting. Just shows you how important Bush's SCOTUS nominations were.
I'm not all that surprised at the 5-4 split considering how poignant Justice Scalia's language can be. I figured we'd see a 5-4 or 6-3 decision from the beginning. Still considering the case concerned a blatant violation of a Constitutional right it's scary as hell that it came down to one vote.
Souter, Ginsberg, Stevens & Breyer - Constitutionalize your personal preferences much? Personally I think the dissenters should be thrown off the court. Hell, our founders would probably be calling for them to be hanged for treason right now.
I'm here at work, and just found a loose 9mm round in my pants pocket. Good luck charm I think.
