“Once in every great while I even agree with Rand Paul, Putin, Pat Buchanan . . . just goes to show, if we try, we can find common ground on something! Good job, Patrick Leahy/Rand Paul.”

“what is it they say . . . once convicted in a DP case, even the most shakey conviction, you can have enough evidence to plant a field of doubt, and still not get it overturned! Test the evidence!!!! Why are prosecutors more concerned with protecting the conviction than with justice?”

“I'd invest in education. When Law Enforcements own studies show that a 10 percent increase in high school graduation rates creates a 20 percent drop in violent crime [3000 homicides a year and 100K violent felonies less]. We know how to do this starting with preschool - a 44 percent increase in HS graduation rates. After school programs, one stable adult in a childs life. I sure wouldn't invest it in a money pit like the death penalty. Even with all the safeguards they've tried to build in, you keep hearing about mistake after mistake - and then tampered evidence, jailhouse snitches, false eyewitness identification. It needs to stop - we need positive investment 'desparately' in CA.”
