International Law and Roper

It's not often that I claim to have a better grasp of the law than a handful of people, but this is one of those few times that I do. I believe there is a large group of scholars and students who are absolutely wrong about the opinion in Roper v. Simmons. Some of these people, like Will Baude, are just not looking at the jurisprudential landscape that has shaped the US reliance on international law. Others are clouded by murky beliefs about what should be in criminal law and try to justify it by attacking reliance on other countries laws. Still others like Dylan try to simply attack the test set up by the court and where Kennedy took that test.

In my opinion they are incorrect and the following posts, long as it will be, will show the reasons I believe they are wrong.
