Prison reform is necessary if we want to see more stories like this. We're supposed to be a country that believes in second chances. Let's give ex cons the opportunity to make something better of themselves.

Kenneth Starr was the man who conducted the witch hunt of President Clinton that ultimately led to Clinton being impeached. Under the guise of protecting the morality of the presidential seat, he went after Clinton for his sexual indiscretions. He rode that publicity to become the president of Baylor University. Interesting that he got canned today for failing to investigate/covering up rape allegations against the Baylor football team. Where Alanis Morissette at!?

Making one mistake in life that results in a criminal conviction should not be a life sentence. Unfortunately, for many people, they're punished with a prison sentence, and then punished again every time they apply for a job thereafter.

There is no good reason why criminal defense attorneys have to fight and claw to gain access to the personal files of law enforcement officers. As public employees, their files should be public record. The lack of transparency is disturbing.

Public defenders in California are overburdened and underfunded. The result is a system where those who can't afford private counsel often receive minimal representation. This is a failure of the system, not hard working public defenders.

The prosecutor has one crucial role, and that is to seek justice. Unfortunately, that has been lost in our system. Prosecutors are expected to get convictions, or else they're not doing their job. it's the ultimate perversion of our legal system.

Until the culture of law enforcement changes, which encourages closing ranks and blind allegiance, we're going to see more scandals like this.

Although this comment will necessarily out me as a huge nerd, I don't care. Watching C-Span and they are playing the confirmation hearing of John Roberts from 2005. Obama spoke eloquently and, indeed, prophetically about his concerns regarding John Robert's record.

Having another criminal defense lawyer on the Supreme Court is important because he or she will offer a unique perspective to counter the accepted notion that being tough on crime is always commendable.
