On the appeals court, Garland has been a moderate liberal, with a definite pro-prosecution bent in criminal cases. Indeed, his views in the area of criminal law are considerably more conservative than those of the man he would replace, Justice Antonin Scalia.
Just what we needed. A “definite pro-prosecution bent in criminal cases”, more “conservative” – if you want to call it that – than even Scalia.
In the meantime, ugh.
