So Flori-DUH is still torturing prisoners, this time banning some 20,000 books. It makes our state look hateful.
Book-banning is contrary to the genius of a free people. While goofy goobers Flori-DUH Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS kluck-klucks about "the Free State of Florida," this book-banning proves otherwise. Florida is a nascent police state, where feculent fascism must be extirpated.
The annals of law show a large number of Supreme Court cases touching on Florida's mistreatment of incarcerated people, including the landmark 1963 Gideon v. Wainright case (unanimous decision establishing constitutional right to court-appointed lawyers in criminal cases) and the 1940 case of Chambers v. Florida (reversing convictions resulting from coerced phony confessions, involving four wrongfully accused Black men from Fort Lauderdale).
Both decisions were unanimous. Both were written by Justice Hugo L. Black, a legqaday progressive New Deal Alabama Senator who enacted the Public Utilities Holding Company Act. (Black was once a KKK member, outed as such after his Senate confirmation to the Court. Justice Black's later career, starting with Chambers, is a tribute to the capacity of people in public life to learn and to grow into truly compassionate public servants.).
