Posted by on Jul 16, 2018 in Featured, Other Issues | Comments

Ken’s Comments:   Given that so many prosecutors are so out of control, wrong thinking (they think their job is to convict people; it not, it is to do justice), and are locking up so many innocent people, that we all should pray that these reforms spread; they should make a difference.   Excerpts from the Article:   In his first year as district attorney in Philadelphia, Larry Krasner is making waves for his reform-minded...

Ken’s Comments:   I remind you again that the prosecutor is the most powerful person in the system: deciding whether to charge, how many charges to file, which ones, whether to offer a plea deal and dictating the terms of it, recommending a sentence, etc. You only need to read a few articles on this website under “Bad Prosecutors” to see why every state should have a Commission on Prosecutor Conduct!

When Being “Tough on Crime” Is a Political Liability All across America, progressive groups are targeting old-school prosecutors.

Ken’s Comments:   There also was an article in today’s local paper saying that “tough on crime” is not the language of the four Democrat candidates for Attorney General [I cannot find it online].  Because prosecutors are the most powerful people in the system, you should work to get the “tough on crime” idiots OUT OF OFFICE!   Excerpts from the Article:   District attorney races are rarely...
