Sidebar discussion of "The Subjective Experience of Punishment"
In prior posts here and here, I highlighted Adam Kolber's interesting article, titled "The Subjective Experience of Punishment," which was published by the Columbia Law Review. I am pleased to report that today the Columbia Law Review published on it Sidebar these two interesting responses to Professor Kolber's piece:
- Kenneth W. Simons, Retributivists Need Not and Should Not Endorse the Subjectivist Account of Punishment, 109 Colum. L. Rev. Sidebar 1 (2009) (available here).
- Miriam H. Baer, Evaluating the Consequences of Calibrated Sentencing: A Response to Professor Kolber, 109 Colum. L. Rev. Sidebar 11 (2009) (available here).

The reason women are not punished as severely as men is because, all things other than gender being equal, the ruling punishment class of retributivists think that that women do not deserve punishment as severe as men. There is no other explanation for their lighter punishment.

I am just a normal everyday citizen who has a son unfairly caught up in the legal system and just want to find some relief from the frustration of knowing he should not be in a jail cell right now he should be free as you and me for he is innocent. I want to change things so badly right now but I can't make it better for him and I just want to scream at someone. Thank you
P.S. It was because of a woman that he is in jail when she actually shuld be the one in there and not my son.

Marcia: You are in the wrong place unless you have a ton of money. The lawyer hunt for the productive white male is on, at full force. Why? He is a source of authority competing with government, a wholly owned subsidiary of the criminal cult enterprise that is the lawyer profession. All they care about is the generation of fees by bogus rule making, they unlawfully just make up to promote their personal hatreds, biases, and profits. They crush all competition to their unlawful, treasonously acquired power.
Save a lot of money. Take it to an experienced criminal defense lawyer. The Dream Team will get him out. The trial, and the legal process is a fictional Broadway production. With enough production, they got OJ out of trouble. They can help your son. They put a lot of innocent male people in stir, when a bitch says, "I felt threatened." That is all the bitch has to say. Armed thugs show up to protect her from feeling threatened. The feminist is a good business generator for the lawyer, especially, when she is destroying the American family. They love it.
On the other hand, they put only 1 in a 1000 real bad guys in jail. They protect and immunize the vicious, illegal alien, paramilitary gang member who beheads people he feels disrespected him. He never gets any hassle, whatsover.
You have stumbled upon a place of pure evil, here.
