I have a Better Idea- Lets Get Rid of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines

The Volokh Conspiracy has an interesting post if Victim Impact statements and such should be part of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Judges.

I have a idea just get rid of them. For something that is proposed for fairness it seems to me the results are often more unfair. The taking away of Prosecution and Judicial discretion to a large degree in sentencing has in my view more often than not created the most absurd injustices.
