Thursday’s Quick Clicks…

  1. Reblogged this on Wrongly Convicted Group Website and commented:
    Perhaps a name-change might help – “State Justice Attorneys” rather than “Prosecutors”. Language and words can influence beliefs.

  2. Enough with the re-naming and acronyms that obscure or confuses the uninformed public about who holds the power in the government – county, state and federal.

    The categories of DA and prosecutors, needs to be applied to wherever it’s been re-named and obscured. The public needs to better understand who holds the absolute power in their state. The public needs to know who has the power to send someone to prison (convictions-at-all costs) and for how long; the prosecutor determines who shall live and who shall die. The prosecutor have no oversight, no transparency and no oversight. And they have absolute immunity.

    In Arizona, they’ve labeled a “DA “- County Attorney. Would one believe “County Attorney” holds the position described above?

    • correction: “The prosecutors have no oversight, no transparency and no oversight. And, they have absolute immunity.

      In Arizona, they’ve labeled a “DA “- County Attorney. Who would believe “County Attorney” holds the powerful position with absolute immunity, described above?

      What’s needed is to clearly name those who are the “DA’s” / prosecutors among us. They have lobbyists who fill the state legislature hearings – at taxpayer expense – fighting against the public (packed hearing rooms) for meaningful sentencing and criminal justice reform. And we’re paying for our self-destruction and rights being stripped away?
