Isn’t she cute?
Amy Coney Bryant: Butter Wouldn’t Melt
Of course, it’s hard to keep that sort of smile for the cameras when you’ve been carjacked, tortured, driven around, forced at gunpoint to withdraw your last $80 from an ATM, hoping against hope that someone, anyone will rescue you, then driven to a cemetery in the last few minute of hell of solitude, when you realize nobody is coming, only to be tortured some more and have your brains blown out against a gravestone, as happened to Sharma Ruth Bryant, age 22, in 1991, in Birmingham, Alabama, by Willie B. Smith III.
This below is Amy Coney Bryant’s family. Handsome bunch. Then again, none of them were kidnapped, tortured, and driven to a cemetery in Birmingham, Alabama in the horror of solitude to have their brains blown out on a gravestone for the hell of it by Willie B. Smith III, who did those things and more to Sharma Bryant. So therefore, Amy Coney Bryant’s family were available to be there for her signing-in to the Supreme Court. Because they weren’t tortured to death by someone mommy just sided with.
Amy Coney Bryant and her not tortured and not murdered family members
What is the Federalist Society for again? Oh yeah, money stuff. Inhumane Libertarian Play-Doh stuff.
Amy Coney Bryant just sided with woman-hating dirtbag Elena Kagan, brain-dead Stephen Breyer, and dim Sonia Sotomayor to stay Willie B. Smith III’s execution because his pastor was barred from being with him in the execution chamber.
Me, I could care less if a monster like Willie B. Smith III had the Mormon Tabernacle Choir with him in the execution chamber. But nobody spoke up for the lonely death Sharma Ruth Bryant suffered. Amy Coney Bryant, who seconded Kagan’s concerns about Smith’s “transitioning between worlds” apparently couldn’t muster a moment to contemplate Bryant’s own lonely “transitioning.” Elena Kagan, who has never met a woman whose death she couldn’t diminish legally, wrote that it just wasn’t fair that Willie B. Smith III would have to make that transition to the great beyond in circumstances he couldn’t completely dictate.
Of course, Bryant had no such choice, nor any such advocacy, or even trivial symbolic recognition. Talk about adding insult to injury. Here’s Kagan’s dirge for poor Willie:
“Alabama has not carried its burden of showing that the exclusion of all clergy members from the execution chamber is necessary to ensure prison security. So the State cannot now execute Smith without his pastor present, to ease what Smith calls the ‘transition between the worlds of the living and the dead,’” Justice Elena Kagan wrote in the order maintaining injunction.
As if Elena Kagan cares what happens to women subject to lonely murders at the hands of vicious misogynists. This is, after all, the very woman Bill Clinton and Eric Holder turned to in order to justify not counting serial rapists and serial rapist-killers of women as hate criminals, a “statistical problem” Kagan solved for them in 1997.
God knows, we can’t let the vast numbers of serial woman-torturer-killers litter up Abe Foxman’s desired hate crime statistics.
That would really be a crime.
I wish I could post a picture of the too-early-dead Sharma Ruth Bryant. I used to be able to find one. But the boy-gods of the Interweb have been busy wiping the very existence of crime victims away for some time now.
That makes it easier for people like Amy Coney Bryant to forget her face too.
