Rule of law or rule by feelings?

President Obama believes empathy is a priority for Supreme Court members. Feelings have nothing to do with the rule of law and the security of individual human rights.-dk

Thomas Sowell talking about the Supreme Court opening said,

Would you want to go into court to appear before a judge with “empathy” for groups A, B, and C, if you were a member of groups X, Y, or Z? Nothing could be farther from the rule of law. That would be bad news, even in a traffic court, much less in a court that has the last word on your rights under the Constitution of the United States.

Appoint enough Supreme Court justices with “empathy” for particular groups and you would have, for all practical purposes, repealed the 14th Amendment, which guarantees “equal protection of the laws” for all Americans.
