Megyn Kelly in Heated Discussion with Bill O'Reilly; Tells Him "I know you want to play God from the bench" - Video 12/3/09

Here is video of Fox News' Megyn Kelly making her first appearance on the network since giving birth. She was on with Bill O'Reilly tonight, where she analyzed the accusations against Navy Seals and then talked about the Maurice Clemmons killing of four Washington Police Officers.

Kelly and O'Reilly got into a heated conversation over how Clemmons was able to get out on bail considering he had been charged with raping a 12 year-old girl, and had eight pending felony charges against him. Kelly told O'Reilly the amount of bail (he paid $19,000 bond) was reasonable and that the judge was not at fault in the case.

O'Reilly argued that judge should have said at least $1 million bail. Kelly told O'Reilly the judge set an unusually high bail at $190,000. Kelly told O'Reilly, "I know you want to play god from the bench."

Kelly told O'Reilly, "You don't get to make up your own standard. You're too quick to villainize the judges."

Megyn Kelly was just perfect in this exchange, especially regarding his penchant for wanting to play God from the bench.

O'Reilly would never make judge.

O'Reilly is a dolt looking to play to his audience. Bail is not about how bad the guy is, or how bad the crime is. It's about how likely the guy is to be a flight risk. Bail isn't supposed to be a punishment; it's meant to ensure that the defendant will show up at trial. On this very rare occasion, Megyn Kelly is absolutely right.
