This isn’t the final word on this issue, but the decision still is pretty outrageous … the Court is in a rush to do injustice!

Ken’s Comments:   Most state prisons allow books and cards, but require that books come directly from a publisher, not third parties. This move makes no sense, since all studies show that education is THE best way to reduce recidivism. Ms. Marsha Pawlina sent me this article, and she said the prison was opening and copying legal mail before giving it to inmates – clearly illegal. The disdain for law among prison officials is...

Ken’s Comments:   This does not surprise me, but I have written a Letter to the Editor, and YOU should send one to papers in Nevada and elsewhere!

Sessions fires former FBI Deputy Director McCabe – Politics has NO place in criminal justice! kra

Posted by on Mar 18, 2018 in Backgress - Sessions, Featured, Other Issues |

Ken’s Comments:   If  you don’t think the firing of Mr. McCabe two days before his scheduled retirement was politically motivated, you don’t know what’s going on. For months, tRump has agitated for his dismissal. tRump’ lawyer recently called for an end to investigations regarding tRump. Just before the firing, the president’s spokeswoman called McCabe a”bad actor”! The only one telling us...
