Dane is different? GOP judge is different
From Charlie Sykes's blog:
DANE COUNTY IS DIFFERENTThat prompted this e-mail:
Check out this judge's sentence
One of three young men accused in a stabbing and baseball bat attack on others in a gang-related incident a year ago was put on probation for eight years Monday, but was not given any more jail time because he has been behind bars for more than a year.
Hector Romero, 19, of Madison, and his companions attacked a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy on Columbus Lane on Madison's east side April 30, 2005. The 17-year-old suffered damage to his heart, lung, liver and diaphragm in the attack, in which one of the victims identified Romero as the man who stabbed the 17-year-old.
The 15-year-old was clubbed in the head with a baseball bat.

From: Michael BasfordSykes has been too busy lionizing Bob Ziegelbauer to clarify that it was a Republican judge, not Kathleen Falk, who did the sentencing. But I'm sure it's coming.

You could point out that the judge was Hon. Patrick J. Fiedler -- who was Ronald Reagan's US Attorney in Wisconsin's Western District, Tommy Thompson's Secretary of Corrections, and was appointed to the bench by Gov Thompson. I look forward to reading your clarification.
