Kennedy's Faulty Analysis

Via Just One Minute, Patterico notes an item from Linda Grenhouse advising that Justice Kennedy screwed up in the child-rape-death penalty case.

When the Supreme Court ruled last week that the death penalty for raping a child was unconstitutional, the majority noted that a child rapist could face the ultimate penalty in only six states — not in any of the 30 other states that have the death penalty, and not under the jurisdiction of the federal government either.


A military law blog pointed out over the weekend that Congress, in fact, revised the sex crimes section of the Uniform Code of Military Justice in 2006 to add child rape to the military death penalty

Whoopsie! A blogger!!
