Maryland Judge Politicizes Justice to Justify Unjust Sentence

Posted in Culture3 months ago • Written by Defender Of LibertyNo Comments

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Laura Kiessling consulted her political agenda to determine the sentence for an illegal immigrant, Martin Martinez-Ballinas, who killed Marine Lance Corporal James Ray Walden III when he lost control of his BMW 335i while speeding around a corner. Martinez-Ballinas struck Walden’s motorcycle sending him into the woods that line the side of the road where he eventually landed 36 feet from the road; Walden needed immediate help. Martinez-Ballinas didn’t stick around to locate and render aid to Walden; he fled on foot until he was found by a police helicopter and police canine approximately half a mile away crouched between stacks of concrete pallets; a textbook case of a hit and run that demands justice.

     Kiessling doesn’t view Martinez-Ballinas’s decision to drive his vehicle 65 mph in a 35 mph zone and fleeing the scene after killing Walden deserving of a lengthy prison sentence because he was under political duress. During sentencing, Kiessling claimed she received many letters from people who are concerned about the “current political climate” created by President Trump because he is “harshly critical of illegal immigration and Mexico in particular.” Kiessling said it is “reasonable to conclude” that the threat of deportation motivated Martinez-Ballinas to flee the scene; the Trump administration’s enforcement of U.S. immigration laws is to blame for Martinez-Ballinas’s cowardly act. Kiessling prefaced her sentence for Martinez-Ballinas by stating, “I’m not going to sentence based on the political environment,” then handed down a sentence of six years in prison, a sentence the State’s attorney called a “cowardly act.” The judge politicized justice by declaring innocence where there is guilt and arbitrarily deciding that leniency is appropriate for a person who commits vehicular manslaughter if that person happens to be an illegal immigrant.

      Kiessling removed the blindfold from Lady Justice and placed her hands on the scale when she meted out justice based on her political beliefs. Lady Justice symbolizes the fair and equal administration of the law, without consideration of race, color, creed, religion, wealth, or station in life. Justice doesn’t care about the reason Martinez-Ballinas fled the scene of his crime; justice is blind. 

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight! – Isaiah 5:21

Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,” will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them. – Proverbs 24:24-25

A frustrated conservative who is very concerned that America has entered its twilight years. Dan has a B.A. in political philosophy and an MBA with a concentration in finance. He has an honorable discharge from the United States Navy after serving for several years after graduating from high school. Please share this with liberals and RINOs because there is nothing better than upsetting them. The U.S. is no longer a constitutional republic, but rather an oligarchy. We live in a post constitutional America where competing tribes sell their votes for the promise of freebies. America is on the cusp of being lost to Marxists and their army of bureaucrats unless the American people move outside of their comfort zone and get involved the same way Marxists have gotten involved by infiltrating the political, educational, and bureaucratic systems.
