At least this time the Doofus has nominated a judge who knows what a jury trial is. Yes, not long ago he nominated  another Doofus who was incredibly unqualified, had never had a trial, and could not explain to the Senate what a Motion in Limine is! But the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh does not bode well for criminal justice reform, nor for anyone holding accountable a president who may commit crimes. Here is the article on his nomination....

Ken’s Comments,   Yes, this is what one must do to try to get medical care in prison. Corizon Health is notoriously atrocious! If you don’t think it is “that bad”, you have NO idea what goes on in our prisons!

Ken’s Comments:   “the prisons are the crime” … Those words immediately reminded me of all the crime I saw committed by prison personnel, which is what propelled me on my journey of the past six years … and until I die.

There are at least 10,000 INNOCENT people rotting away in our prisons today! To understand the problems and the solutions, spend an...

Ken’s Comments:   I saw this company in action … I should say inaction. They are a nightmare for any inmate or friend or loved one of an inmate. See many articles under “prison abuse” on our website. I grow weary of “this same old story”. Here we see a billion dollar business throwing its money around with what I call legal bribery – campaign donations and lobbying – in order to make money at...
