Wow. Colleen Long has this story for AP. How many ways is this wrong?
NEW YORK (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say a bureau of prisons guard is pregnant after an affair with a man convicted in one of New York's most notorious police killings.
Nancy Gonzalez was arrested Tuesday at her home. She is charged with unlawful sexual abuse of an inmate while working at the Metropolitan Detention Center.
Authorities say the prisoner is Ronell Wilson.
Gonzalez was expected in Brooklyn federal court later Tuesday. It wasn't clear if she had an attorney.
Federal court papers say she had an affair with Wilson for a few months before she became pregnant in June.
Wilson was convicted in the 2006 point-blank shooting of two undercover officers. He was sentenced to death but it was overturned.
Let's count a few of them.
1. Wilson should have been prosecuted and sentenced to death by the State of New York. He couldn't be, because of an outrageous act of judicial activism by that state's highest court. The court found a procedural flaw in the state's death penalty law and then found it not severable from the rest of the law despite an express severability clause in the statute.
2. So he was prosecuted in federal court. The Second Circuit decision overturning his sentence is erroneous for the reasons describe in Judge Livingston's dissent.
3. So now, in addition to living out a life he shouldn't, Wilson gets sex with a female prison guard. If anyone needs confirmation of Robert Blecker's thesis that the people running prisons do not think it their job to see that the inmates are sufficiently punished, here it is.
4. Finally, Ms. Gonzalez is being charged with an offense, as she should be, but the offense is framed as if murderer Wilson is the victim!
That's four. Feel free to add more in the comments.
