Norris v. Morgan (9th Cir. - Sept. 23, 2010)

You've previously been convicted of molesting a little girl in a manner described as "child rape." Now, after getting out of prison, you had some beers, went to a McDonald's, deliberately hung around the play structure while little kids played, and then grabbed a little girl's crotch and ran away when her father confronted you about it.

You claim that it's cruel and unusual punishment to sentence you to life in prison under Washington state's "two strikes" law for child molesters. But let's face it. You're not exactly the poster child for a rehabilitated offender. You're instead a repeat offender who's deliberately preying on young kids. You're getting no sympathy whatsoever. None.
