US Sentencing Commission regional hearing in Chicago next week

As detailed in this brief public notice, the US Sentencing Commission has another one of its regional public hearings on tap for next week.  This fourth regional public hearing is scheduled for Sept 9-10, 2009, in Chicago will be held in the Ceremonial Courtroom of the Everett M. Dirksen United States Courthouse.

As detailed in this official agenda, a fascinating group of invited witnesses are scheduled to testify regarding federal sentencing policy, including famed US Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald who is known well from his prosecution of Scooter Libby and Rod Blagojevich.  The panel that seems especially worth attending is the one providing a "View from the Appellate Bench" and which has Judges Danny Boggs and Jeffrey Sutton of the Sixth Circuit and Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook of the Seventh Circuit testifying about their views on the post-Booker world.

Notably absent from this regional session is any "View from Academia," which I believe was part of each prior regional hearing.  It seems the members of the US Sentencing Commission got tired of hearing how the federal sentencing system looks from the ivory tower.

Notably absent from this regional session is any "View from the Victim," is any "View from the Owners of the Law That You Cult Criminals Have Criminally Converted for Your Own Rent Seeking Paper Shuffling Criminal Lover Purposes," is any "View from the Crime Victims Direct Action Groups that Need to Hunt the Criminal Lovers Down and Need to Beat Their Asses Since There is No Legal Recourse for the Victim to Remedy the Criminal Lover's Utter Failure to Protect the Public."

Notably, every single one of these execrable, criminal lover, traitors to the public safety owes their living to the criminal. They will never allow anything that will deter nor in any way inconvenience their client, to whom all owe their jobs.

Notably, one notes the absence of any notable disclosure of an irremediable conflict of interest. If crime is deterred by swift, painful, cheap, certain punishment, followed by execution for repeat violent offenses, these geniuses lose their jobs.
