I don't know about you but I don't think judges should apologize to criminals for sending them to jail! But that is just exactly what Sotomayor does.
“[W]e all understand that you were in part a victim of the economic necessities of our society; unfortunately there are laws that I must impose.” This is something she said to a drug dealer she was sentencing!
She told another convicted drug trafficker: “It is no comfort to you for me to say that I am deeply, personally sorry about the sentence that I must impose, because the law requires me to do so. The only statement I can make is this is one more example of an abomination being committed before our sight. You do not deserve this, sir.”
What the hell is wrong with people if they think this attitude would make a good Supreme Court Judge?

I agree. If she has a compulsion to apologize for doing her job, then perhaps she is in the wrong line of work. Maybe she would be better as a public defender.
