If you are an otter, you might be gobbled up by an alligator. If you are a gazelle, you might be gobbled up by lions. If you are a monkey, you might be gobbled up by a python. If you are a human, you might be gobbled up by our criminal justice system! If you don’t think so, you might be very sadly mistaken. 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:   Can It Be Murder If You Didn’t Kill Anyone? It can and it is in too many states. As you read this I am working on freeing – via Application for Clemency/Commutation – 3 people convicted this way. Called “accomplice liability laws” or “felony murder laws”, they are remarkably unfair. I have seen really crazy cases, like the one where police killed someone but the robber was blamed...

Ken’s Comments:   This is just the beginning of ending this mess. I do not believe for one second the claim by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Aza that they can locate any child in five minutes! They have NO IDEA where some of them are. The problem with tRump immigration law enforcement is that they have no priorities – i. e. focus on the dangerous criminals. They lock up everybody, thus further endangering us by...

Ken’s Comments:   What has this to do with criminal justice? Plenty! The idiots we call politicians make the laws, and they need to make the laws needed to restore justice to our courts. This decision ensures that is a long way off in Texas. Worse, it sends the signal that gerrymandering is ok! Like other of the Court’s worst decisions, this one was 5-4. Excerpts from the Article:   A divided Supreme Court kept Texas’...

OMG! I am nearly speechless. Totally Appalled. Child Immigrants and tRump – Children!! -kra Letter to the Editor

I am 71. I was a political science major in college and have followed/studied politics ever since. Now I have considerable expertise in criminal justice. Find “Board Members” on our website, www.citizensforcriminaljustice.net and read my Bio Summary. Never in my life have I seen a more troubling, more totally screwed up, more deeply tragic, more ill-conceived and wildly out of control mess in government than the current tRump...
