This is old news, but the EFFECT of it is more important now than ever.  tRump is a disaster for criminal justice in many ways … from his use of private prisons (which Obama, wisely, was phasing out) to his total incompetence with the issues.  He does not care about meaningful reform, does not care about individuals’ rights, and is as “lost in space”on criminal justice as he is on many other issues! Remember, justice is...

I have known her for decades, and I have known many of her predecessors.  Not only did Ms. Jennings do the right thing in dropping these charges, but she did it the right way: after thorough review of the facts and thoughtful discussion with all involved. Protesters have...

As a judge, I have to follow the Supreme Court. It should fix this mistake.

Posted by on Jun 21, 2020 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality |

Qualified immunity should see the dustbin of history! It makes it nearly impossible for those abused by police to win a civil suit against them.  This judge gets it. Excerpts from the Article: George Floyd’s unconscionable killing has properly brought renewed attention to the Supreme Court’s doctrine of “qualified immunity,” which shields law enforcement officers from civil lawsuits alleging excessive force. The judge-made law of qualified...
