The worst Judge ever award

From the land of loons, Vermont, we have a judge who gave a 60 day sentence to a guy who raped a girl from age 7 to age 11. His reasoning for doing so is that he doesn't believe in punishment. Isn't handing out punishment part of the job of a judge in a criminal court. We can argue about how harsh various punishments for various crimes ought to be, but if you are unwilling to hand out punishment, retire/quit.

The people of Vermont are outraged as are people across the country. It is sad that such a quaint and beautiful little place filled with mostly normal Americans is so routinely made a laughing stock by their elected and appointed representatives. Maybe it is time for a little shake up in politics folks. You might want to start by getting rid of Bernie Sanders. Your credibility in the rest of the country would improve greatly.
