Know Your Local District Attorney

Law and justice symbolized by judges's gravel
Summary:

Journalist/activist Shaun King is putting the focus on local DA elections in order to reform a faulty, failing criminal justice system…

I was at Wobbly Warrior’s blog (where Susan Chandler zeroes in on criminal justice reform), and she was sharing a link about this: Journalist/activist Shaun King is putting the focus on local DA elections in order to reform a faulty, failing criminal justice system. Immediately, you “know” King’s idea is both revolutionary and doable.

Please read King’s announcement. He’ll be posting more later today.


…No position in the entire country has more power, more juice, more influence, with less scrutiny and attention, than the District Attorney…

In addition to building a comprehensive database, we will begin helping to recruit exciting new candidates for local DA races. We will be mounting a nationwide awareness campaign to help encourage reform-minded attorneys to enter the fray to change the justice system from the inside out…

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
