While David's away the mice will play......

David is out of town for a few days & the keys to the blog have been handed over to the co-bloggers listed on the left. I don't know what the others are thinking about doing but I'd like to use the next few days looking at a few blogs & sites that don't get enough attention in the abolitionist & criminal justice reform community.

I am a big fan of the work though of an Abolitionist blogger who hasn't joined the group here yet, Scott Taylor, who runs the Ohio Death Penalty Info blog. He ran this You Tube piece earlier today on Leonel Herrera.

Scott might may make you laugh, may make you angry, but he always tries to make you think.

I should note that if there is something we should know about while David is away, like a new site, or event or development, please feel free to leave it in the comments or email one of us.

I should note I can normally be found at Capital Defense Weekly & that despite the name of that blog the lawtalk is kept to a minimum.

I'm sure it won't make any difference, but could you let me know what you think about this?

I had a cousin that was murdered and the accused shooter (there were two witnesses) got off on a technicality. My cousin was 19 years old at the time; he would be 49 today. The shooter? He's a free man with a wife, kids, etc. How fortunate for him.

i think this attitude is simply unamerican...it's weird how one can simultaneously dismiss the constitution of the united states yet still claim to be a patriot...it is, i think, another exzample of people mixing their emotions into policy analysis and emotions, which should be validated, should not be allowed to be the basis for either the discussion or creation of public policy...
