I don't know what this is, but it reads like the closing argument of a defense attorney who's got nothing.

I spoke with about her song "Everything Is Free," which over the past few months has become a modern folk standard.

Hahaha! Believe it or not, there’s some great case law in the F-L-A holding that agreeing with a leading Q from a judge is insufficient to rehabilitate. The reasoning is, of course, basic common sense about how potential jurors respond to judges.

It was a bad day for the politics of mass incarceration. Rahm Emanuel the pro-carceral mayor of Chicago – hounded by his cover-up of a police shooting – announced he isn't running for a third term. And Boston elected a Larry Krasner-style reformer as District Attorney.

This is not an exaggeration. In Florida, you can catch a murder charge even if you did not commit the deadly act. One example: two armed teenagers broke into a house, one was shot dead by homeowner. The other was charged with his accomplice's death.

On criminal justice, Andrew Gillum advocates: legalizing recreational marijuana, abolishing private prisons, overhauling the sentencing code, curbing mandatory minimums, & reforming the cash bail system in a way that's "more aggressive" than the reform NJ implemented last year.

Overlooked: Per NBC News data, Gillum only spent $589K on TV, while Collective PAC spent $1.2M. For context, Levine camp spent $23M (!), while Graham camp spent $8M.

"Nanny State?" Bondi fights AGAINST medical marijuana (supported by 71% of Floridians) and the right of certain citizens to marry and fights FOR government-mandated limits on what doctors can discuss with patients and medical procedures women can choose. She IS the "Nanny State."

Took me several years before the nightmares about going back to federal prison stopped. Serving time in an American prison is traumatic and most people who’ve served long sentences leave with trauma. It’s a significant public policy issue that has not been given enough attention.

Let’s be clear: for many people, concern about “illegal immigration” is really a concern about the erosion of white privilege/white hegemony.
