In response to Judge Sylvia Oishi’s concern regarding the employment of a man who had breached the terms of his release for murder of his own mother, I would suggest that perhaps Oishi should find a new line of work.
The individual that chose to not follow the terms of his release is jeopardizing his employment. Not the judge. I would think that being able to make that distinction is one of the most important aspects of a profession that requires its members take away the rights of others.
I also worry about Oishi’s priorities. Based on the comments from the probation office it seems this individual is still dangerous. And I feel that the safety of everyone that might come into contact with him is much more important than making sure he keeps his job.
It’s time the system started treating this man like an adult. Maybe then he’ll take responsibility like one. If the system is going to excuse every indiscretion, including murder, because of immaturity, that is simply rewarding that immaturity. At what age is he expected to behave like an adult?
