Criminal Justice Reform U.S.A.

An Awful Demonstration of Cruelty, Timidity, and Aversion to Change. Normal indicators suggest that Criminal Justice Reform (CJR) is not among priorities even on the Trump administration’s D- list. One might rightly conclude that the time and money expended so far, is either to appease the system’s critics or foot-drag the issue to 2020. Some […]

Report: Ohio Mulling Death Penalty for Abortion

Well there goes Ohio lawmakers again. I am convinced that the time is near for mental health evaluations to be a factor in qualifying for candidate status. Possibly an internship requirement too. Okay, well anything that would help them understand the limits of their jobs. Savings would be time, taxpayers dollars, and most of all […]

Star Buck$, an Expression, a Piñata and Police

Today it’s Starbucks’ turn for caustic opprobrium. It’s their turn to be piñata of the day, because there were more decent customers than others, in the coffeehouse, and a woman was adroit enough to use the most feared weapon in America -a cellphone.

Baiting by Police is Common,Unethical and Harmful to Society

By Leyland  A. King Monday, July 30, 2016 Nothing impeded traffic-flow on I-4 East bound just after sunset, that late summer’s  Friday. Irving Welles, age twenty-four, college grad, was headed home after work, thinking ordinary thoughts in the midst of routine driving. His family was awaiting his arrival for dinner.  Had there been a traffic […]

Power is Never up for Negotiation

  It was Sojourner Truth (1787-1883) who, her patience worn thin, famously said “If women want any rights more than they’s got, why don’t they just take them and not be talking about it”. This is usually the place where the debaters, soi disant theorists  and the attention starved, step in to impress us with demands […]
