I’ve advocated for incarcerated innocents for 15 years. Many of the people I’ve advocated for have been freed, but – to a man – all of them would have been freed if the wholly self-evident serial nature of public misconduct in criminal prosecutions had been duly investigated and prosecuted by the FBI and the Department of Justice … the peripheral public corruption that would have ended simultaneously would have been truly staggering in nature, including a rapid halt to untimely, preventable death of inmates. (Peripheral corruption has been known to be deadly, too.)
We have “Zero Tolerance” policies for children in grade school and “Unlimited Tolerance” for adults on the public payroll who have sworn to keep us safe from harm, and instead damage or end our lives. It’s time to stop being so very, very backwards.
