Judicial Activism

Ruling that the Constitution allows strip searches even for the most minor offenses, Justice Kennedy "wrote that courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional officials," exposing the right-wing judicial activism of the Supreme Court. Not only are the courts in "no position" to do so, it is not their job. Their job is to decide if actions are Constitutional, not to decide on the usefulness or practicality of laws, or whether they keep us "safe" or not. That is the job of the other two branches of government. That the Court even "went there" illustrates that for these alleged "originalists" and other "defenders of the Constitution," the Constitution is actually the farthest thing from their minds.
