  Donald Trump Denies Calling Countries ‘Shithole’ While Continuing To Insult Them I try to stay focused on criminal justice, and not comment on politics. But this is not politics, it is right and wrong, bigotry or tolerance. I, for one, will not remain silent in the face of such a monumental threat to the very fiber of our nation.

Ken’s Comments:   When I read the headline, I thought this would be about “community policing”, but it is even better than that! This stuff DOES reduce crime … so why not do more of it?!
