Given that, and his more-proba
I don't even wanta think about why, much less talk about it.
For the most part, there is very little difference between Republican or Democratic judges. Both tend to give very harsh sentences as that is what they think the voting public wants. There are probably a few more Democratic judges who might throw out evidence obtained in violation of the 4th amendment. But Republican judges are more shameless when it comes to favoritism, letting off the kids of rich and connected people, regardless of their crimes.
On a day to day basis, there is almost no difference between GOP or DEM judges (or prosecutors). On drug cases, slightly more DEMS will opt for rehab and treatment versus prison. GOP is generally a little more lenient with corporate and white collar criminals.
In the 60's and 70's I think there was a bigger difference, not anymore. Many Dem judges give basketball score sentences (60 to 80, 40 to 60, 60 to 100) for rape, murder, etc.
Under the Clinton years, America had a huge increase in imprisonemtn rates, and the Clinton crime bill and Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act are as law and order conservative as it gets.
A large portion were active in Boy Scouts: Scout Masters, Eagle Scouts, etc. Scouting teaches self reliance, confidence

And it seems that an even higher percentage
One of my current side-proje
don't forget Danny Rolling (1954-2006.)
DHR couldn't pass the test for Navy enlistment but managed the achievement necessary for the Air Force. [meaning the testing b/c iirc Danny checked out of school at ~10th grade.] the 'achievement' is kinda telling as this was during the Vietnam era.
Lackland Air Force Base in Texas at 17yoa, then Homestead AFB in SAC (Strategic Air Command) as an SP (Security Police).
USAF Military SN #: 435-96-2305 USAF (dob 5/26/54). Custodian of his military records: Mr. David L. Peetree, Nat'l Personnel Records Ctr., Nat'l Archives, Records Admin., Military Pers. Records, 9700 Page Blvd., St. Louis MO 63132 (IR 2403)
IR3622: 6/28/71-3/1/73 ROLLING enlists in the Air Force. During the next 19 months ROLLING received disciplinary punishment: received two (2) article #15 disciplines and other administrative non-judicial punishments. Infractions range from failure to obey orders to theft and use of marijuana. After reviewing several statements, disciplinary actions and recommendations, LT. COLONEL MORTIN, U.S. Air Force, recommends Basic Airman DANNY H. ROLLING be given a general discharge, citing an "underlying immature personality." Documented in report #2403, by SA Norred.
just glancing thru the wiki Rolling entry--it's full of inaccuracies, to the point of being misleading.
a better information source is Sondra London:
caveat: as the old saying goes, "the odds are good (you'll find what your looking for in Sondra's index) but the goods are odd" (Ms. Locke and her story are extra ordinary to say the least.)

didn't mean this to go on and on, just wanted to point out Rolling had it all:
abuse began before he was born
police officer father: abusive and regimented
started as a neighborho
stalked Julie Grissom; as in checked out her neighborho
attacked through a green zone into Grissom backyard
wasn't phased by adult male in the home
bound victims in their homes, sexually attacked, killed
There seems a certain pattern in the Serial killer's thinking, that threads it's way into a great number of these creatures. Ted Bundy, Gary Ridgeway, Dennis Rader, just to name a few, detatched themselves from everyone around them. They retreated into their own little fantasy world as they hunted down their victims. During these periods they were predators personified.
They were able to shut the door temperarilly on their killing instincts any time they wished; it seemed. Gary Ridgeway held a steady job as a painter in a factory for over twenty years. Dennis Radar was an animal control officer, and Red Bundy was a promising law student with a brilliant career ahead of him.
I'll wager their home lives were normal, their spouses never suspecting anything. Colin Pitchfork, the first seria killer/rapist and criminal ever to be convicted by DNA evidence held a steady position as a baker in a food factory. His wife went ballistic when he confessed to the crimes.
What I'm trying to get at is their mental ability to shut off the urge to rape and kill at any time they chose. Or, at least keep it in check. This ability fascinates me.
The jist of the article is to verify that Republican
This story is it in a nutshell, Republican
