Goodwin Liu, UC Berkeley law school professor, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday. According to the Blog of The Legal Times, Liu walked back his damning 2006 testimony against the confirmation of now Justice Sam Alito.
In 2006, Liu had said:
"Judge Alito's record envisions an America where police may shoot and kill an unarmed boy to stop him from running away with a stolen purse; where federal agents may point guns at ordinary citizens during a raid, even after no sign of resistance; where the FBI may install a camera where you sleep on the promise that they won't turn it on unless an informant is in the room; where a black man may be sentenced to death by an all-white jury for killing a white man, absent a multiple regression analysis showing discrimination; and where police may search what a warrant permits, and then some. Mr. Chairman, I humbly submit that this is not the America we know. Nor is it the America we aspire to be."

I watched his previous confirmation hearings. The guy is frightening. Publicly p!ssing on the Chief Justice of the United States would be a disqualifier to sit on the same court if the President was an American and the Senate was not run by commies.

He is not fit to be a dog catcher of dead dogs. His comments were nothing more than pandering to criminals and trying to make them out as victims through insinuation.
Send him back to the Peoples Republik of Berkley where he fits in.
