The criminal justice “reform” we need is simply taking law enforcement out of the unclean hands of the American Bar Association.
The FBI is mandated to investigate public corruption that affects trial outcomes, and we need an FBI Director that knows that trial outcomes have a higher priority than surveilling peace protesters, busting dogfight rings and harassing small town traffickers in Native American artifacts to death.

Subject: Commute Rodney Gray’s sentence
Dear Governor Barbour:
There are a number of controversies surrounding Rodney Gray’s conviction.
At present, the worst punishment a prosecutor or his supervisor faces for deliberately framing an innocent is a career change via disbarment. And the Bar is so very reluctant to slap a wrist that prosecutors and their supervisors frequently get away with murder.
Governors are their accomplices.
