A guest post by Hailey Sanibel of Blue State Conservative.

In a series of tweets yesterday, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) raised some serious concerns over the history of sentencing practices on the part of Joe Biden’s black, female SCOTUS nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson. From what he could gather, Brown Jackson’s judicial philosophy mirrors the increasingly common trends to treat pedophiles with compassion and not for the predatory monsters they are.

I’ve been researching the record of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, reading her opinions, articles, interviews & speeches. I’ve noticed an alarming pattern when it comes to Judge Jackson’s treatment of sex offenders, especially those preying on children.
Judge Jackson has a pattern of letting child porn offenders off the hook for their appalling crimes, both as a judge and as a policymaker. She’s been advocating for it since law school. This goes beyond “soft on crime.” I’m concerned that this a record that endangers our children
As far back as her time in law school, Judge Jackson has questioned making convicts register as sex offenders – saying it leads to “stigmatization and ostracism.” She’s suggested public policy is driven by a “climate of fear, hatred & revenge” against sex offenders

Judge Jackson has also questioned sending dangerous sex offenders to civil commitment. We have a civil commitment law in Missouri, and it protects children.
It gets worse. As a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Judge Jackson advocated for drastic change in how the law treats sex offenders by eliminating the existing mandatory minimum sentences for child porn.
Judge Jackson has said that some people who possess child porn “are in this for either the collection or the people who are loners and find status in their participation in the community.” What community would that be? The community of child exploiters? Image
Judge Jackson has opined there may be a type of “less-serious child pornography offender” whose motivation is not sexual but “is the challenge, or to use the technology.” A “less-serious” child porn offender?

In her time on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Judge Jackson said she “mistakingly assumed that child pornography offenders are pedophiles,” and she wanted “to understand this category of nonpedophiles who obtain child pornography.” Image
On the federal bench, Judge Jackson put her troubling views into action. In every single child porn case for which we can find records, Judge Jackson deviated from the federal sentencing guidelines in favor of child porn offenders.
In the case of United States v. Hawkins, the sex offender had multiple images of child porn. He was over 18. The Sentencing Guidelines called for a sentence of up to 10 years. Judge Jackson sentenced the perpetrator to only 3 months in prison. Three months.
In United States v. Stewart, the criminal possessed thousands of images of child porn and also hoped to travel across state lines to abuse a 9-year-old girl. The guidelines called for a sentence of 97-121 months. Judge Jackson sentenced the criminal to just 57 months.
In United States v. Cooper, in which the criminal had more than 600 images and videos and posted many on a public blog, the Guidelines called for a sentence of 151-188 months. Judge Jackson settled on 60 months, the lowest possible sentence allowed by law.
In United States v. Chazin, the offender had 48 files of child porn, which he had accessed over a period of years. The Guidelines recommended 78-97 months. Judge Jackson gave him 28.
In United States v. Downs, the perp posted multiple images to an anonymous instant messaging app, including an image of a child under the age of 5. The Guidelines recommended 70-87 months. Judge Jackson gave him the lowest sentence allowed by law, 60 months.
In United States v. Sears, the sex offender distributed more than 102 child porn videos. He also sent lewd pictures of his own 10-year-old daughter. The Guidelines recommended 97-121 months in prison. Judge Jackson gave him 71 months.
In United States v. Savage, the sex offender was convicted of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct and also admitted to transporting child porn. The Guidelines recommended 46-57 months. Judge Jackson gave him 37.
This is a disturbing record for any judge, but especially one nominated to the highest court in the land. Protecting the most vulnerable shouldn’t be up for debate. Sending child predators to jail shouldn’t be controversial.
So far, the Sentencing Commission has refused to turn over all Judge Jackson’s records from her time there. In light of what we have learned, this stonewalling must end. We must get access to all relevant records.

As reported by Fox News, the extensive history of both her writings from law school and from the bench are worrisome.

“Republican Sen. Josh Hawley posted a lengthy Twitter thread Wednesday containing several examples that he says demonstrates an “alarming” pattern of lenient treatment of sex offenders who prey on children from Biden Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.”

Here are just a few examples of what Hawley exposed via Twitter:

“Judge Jackson has a pattern of letting child porn offenders off the hook for their appalling crimes, both as a judge and as a policymaker. She’s been advocating for it since law school. This goes beyond “soft on crime.” I’m concerned that this a record that endangers our children.”

“As far back as her time in law school, Judge Jackson has questioned making convicts register as sex offenders – saying it leads to “stigmatization and ostracism.” She’s suggested public policy is driven by a “climate of fear, hatred & revenge” against sex offenders.”

“It gets worse. As a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Judge Jackson advocated for drastic change in how the law treats sex offenders by eliminating the existing mandatory minimum sentences for child porn.”

“In the case of United States v. Hawkins, the sex offender had multiple images of child porn. He was over 18. The Sentencing Guidelines called for a sentence of up to 10 years. Judge Jackson sentenced the perpetrator to only 3 months in prison. Three months.”

The entire thread begins here.

The string of tweets is as damning as it is concerning. Whereas most opponents to her nomination pointed out the overtly segregatory nature of her selection – given Biden’s campaign pledge to only look at black women – and subsequently worried he would seat a racist lunatic that would view every decision through a Critical Theory Lens, Hawley’s findings raise equally valid concerns in other areas of law.

Of course, none of this should be a surprise. Leftism is a mental illness and erodes all faculties of the brain. The same line of thinking that views any disparity as being the result of white supremacist legacies is identical to the view that a pedophile is simply misunderstood. In both cases, personal responsibility is replaced by a victim mentality. It should go without saying that the real – and only – victim of pedophilia is the child.

Apparently, that is asking too much from Ketanji Brown Jackson to notice. She condones racism; she condones pedophilia…what other evils does she support?
