President Obama's nominee to the United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Robert N. Chatigny, holds a disturbing fringe opinion that sexual sadism should be a legal mitigating factor. In fact, Chatigny put this belief in action while presiding over the case against the "Roadside Strangler" where he did everything in his power to keep serial rapist and killer Michael Ross from getting the death penalty. (WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT)Actually, I'm not sure that "disturbing" is a strong enough word to describe Judge Chatigny's actions during the Roadside Strangler's trial. As you watch the video ask yourself how you would feel if a loved one was kidnapped, tortured, raped and murdered and the judge handling the case believed that the killer "should not be convicted" because the killer is a sexual sadist.
