Arlen Spector …………………Mark R. Kravitz
Let us be clear. Everyone has their own beliefs independent of everyone else. Tome, this is where the law comes in at. It is there, within the laws governing the commoncommunity that individual ideologies should submit. In this submission to the law, men
and women no matter their personal views, people are “Honorable,“ or accountable to
something other than themselves.
Having the opportunity to be in Philadelphia during one of Arlen Spector„s
campaign, I had a chance to opinion him as a political figure. Having had a case beforeMark R. Kravits, I had the opportunity first hand to view his work. He hailed fromPhiladelphia, which to me is not laughing matter or coincidence. Both men are said tohave battled health problems in their latter years. Both men had an opportunity tocorrect any misdeeds committed prior to their passing.
I would describe Senator Spector‟s political background as neither here nor there.
Not that he was independent from the law, he was non conforming to a political party.While Judge Kravitz was labeled as a conservative republican. This became moreevident in his final years as he returned to the democratic party from which he started hiscareer. As we can see the Judges conservative view in my case before the court.However, I never viewed either from their actions as someone who can be trusted so tospeak, referring to the Warren Commission Report, and the Writ of Mandamus motion.It is this report that endeared him most of all to the republican party, and it is this reportwhere it can be said, he made his bones. Likewise the conservative moniker regardingminorities and entitlements supports the republican views embodied by the other.Although not an attorney, but having researched the meaning of individual versusofficial capacity as it relates to public officials I became skeptical of Judge Kravitz biasbeliefs. As I recount the suggestion made in his recommendation, it was taken as anattempt to influence the outcome of the case, in favor of the defendants in the case.Haven asked the question as to the different affects such a decision between individualand official capacity and its impact on a ruling, it became evident that the conservatism of the judge was the same embodied by the conservative views of those against the presidentin regards to his policy, and that is to decide against him no matter the issue before thecongress.To me, republican conservatism as it has to do with African descendants equates toracism. It does not embrace the notion of equality. As mentioned before, the lawshould be the standard barer and not personal ideologies. In the instant case that wasbefore the judge, the law is clear and concise. However, conservatives seldom if everside with the African descendant, even if the law favors the African descendant. Theprolonging of the issues, and to a certain extent not transferring my case for a quickeradjudication reflects the encumbrances that conservatism places before the ability forAfrican des
cendants to gain equal treatment in this society. It wasn‟t until after the
death of the judge that it was noted that he was not participating in civil procedures.This I find is a shortcoming of the justice system as a whole, and not simply a reflection
