While New York "drops the rock," one state senator ups the rhetoric

As detailed in this local article, not everyone in New York is happy with the state legislature's decision to reform the Rockefeller drug laws.  Specifically, as explained in this official press release, state Senator Joseph Griffo is reiterating "his warning that a provision in the current State Budget agreement will endanger public safety":

The agreement would drastically roll back the ‘Rockefeller Drug Laws’ to potentially allow 5,000 – 8,000 drug dealers back onto the street.  “I’m terribly disappointed that the Senate Majority decided to hide this initiative in the State Budget,” said Senator Griffo. “Rather than putting it in a separate measure that could be discussed and debated, we’re fast-tracking what will be an added hindrance to law-enforcement and will negatively affect communities in New York.”

“The Association of District Attorneys, the people who are out in front of prosecuting drug dealers, have said that this is a poor public policy decision,” Griffo added, “We’re opening a Pandora’s Box that will allow drugs to become a greater scourge to communities and families.”

One State Senator Picks up the Facts.

Prof. Berman is so biased, there is not even a small attempt to hide the venom.

Senator Griffo, not a Democrat, not a lawyer.

Prof: Who is this "Supremacy Claus"? I see his prolific dimwitted commentary repeatedly. I think
he's one of those prescription pill junkies who spends his time over-writing on the computer. Gag!

Fluff: Thank you for responding to my comment. No one else does.

Prof. Berman is a victim of criminal cult enterprise indoctrination. How else to explain how he came to believe in sicko, supernatural, Medieval garbage core legal doctrines? These would be called delusional and psychotic were they not the product of indoctrination. He is also a perpetrator of criminal cult enterprise indoctrination. He needs a full time truth squad from the world we like to call, reality.

FluffyRoss, Supremacy Claus (who, ironically, has the same initials in real life is Professor Berman) is an angry doctor that is pissed that he lost a lawsuit and a pro se appeal. So, he takes out his anger on blogs.

We asked him to leave our old blog some time ago, and he did.

Scotus: You are quite mistaken. I am here to rescue the lawyer from the criminal cult enterprise enterprise that indoctrinated him, and continues to oppress the lawyer even more than it does the public.

There is no love greater than the love great enough to correct.

I love even you. How you can make a living given the minimalist level of basic lawyer knowledge is impressive to me, unless you have gone on disability.

That being said the Supremacy is a fictional character. Don't get obsessed, like a Harry Potter fan. It's easy, given the incisiveness of his points from 10th Grade World History and Western Civ 101. These are all news to you because your indoctrination erased that knowledge, so everything seems fresh and new to you.

Still, without you, and now Fluffy, no one would care enough to respond. I appreciate your interest.

Supremacy Claus would appear to be Mycroft Holmes to federalist's Sherlock.
