Led by LA Progressive’s publishers, a team of two dozen Los Angeles-based criminal justice activists has just released a new Criminal Justice Report Card in time for November’s critical election.
Dick & Sharon: Donald Trump is a misogynist, a race-baiter, a divider, a fool, a buffoon, a national embarrassment. He should not be allowed to enter the White House even on visitor’s pass.
Brandon: Like it or not, admit it or not, we have been CONDITIONED by the media to distrust her and hate her. Some do it out of mysoginy, but a lot do it out of falling prey to the 25 year long smear campaign.
This LA Progressive voter guide for national and California state elections contains recommendations for the November 8, 2016 election. As many of you know, the LA Progressive endorsed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary. But now, in the General Election, we believe Donald Trump as president would be a threat to the republic.
Dick & Sharon: But then that debate happened last Monday night, making it seem a whole lot less likely that Donald Trump or anyone from his entourage will find themselves in the White House on anything but a visitor’s pass—or so you would think.
Dick and Sharon: In the final part of the survey, we want to know what you and your family would react should Donald Trump become our 45th president.
Dick Price and Sharon Kyle: The biggest majority of you—68% of those who took the survey—foresee increasing racial tensions breaking out into violence against people of color and immigrants.
Now, in the survey’s second part, let’s look at the effect a Donald J. Trump presidency would have on America, its people, and our standing in the world.
Dick Price & Sharon Kyle: a deeply bitter taste lingers among Bernie Sanders’ many supporters from the way party insiders, the corporate media who act more like press agency flacks, and the plutocrats who gave Hillary $180 million in August cooked the books in the primary.
ver the next three days, we’ll ask the obvious questions: What happens to America if Donald J. Trump is its 45th president? How will the Democratic Party respond? And what will you do?
Nicholas C. Arguimbau: Six of the 746 men on California’s Death Row were once clients of mine. Four of the six have sat in prison waiting an outcome to their unending cases over thirty years or more. The people who are executed are a generation older and wiser than the people who wee asserted.
Beyond remembrance and looking backward, we need reflection on the present and future – reflection on the human and social cost of the “War on Terror,” reflection on how this host of horrors can come to an end.
Tom Hall: Parker’s case focuses attention on a wide scale desire to abandon traditional theories of due process rights, including the right of confrontation and the right to a presumption of innocence.
