20 yrs ago, when (mostly) black women had babies while on crack, we called it: CRACK BABIES We locked up the parent Now, when (mostly) white women have babies while on opioids, we call it: NEONATAL ABSTINENCE SYNDROME We treat the baby & parent All in our names. Yes, YOU.

The problem with interrogations in the US is that “false confessions” are just a “cost of doing business.”

Unfortunately, the problem was not the defense. It was yet another example of the HC, whose supposedly an offense guy, laying a turd with a month to prepare the offensive game plan.

Couldn’t a tipped kick still be the kicker’s fault if he kicked it too low?

St. Clair was my client. The sole basis for his arrest was an identification by a stranger. He was lied to and pulled out of his house, whether he lived with his mother, by the police. 1/

The idea that weed busts still go on *and are boasted about* as half of rapes go unsolved shows how utterly clueless the policing profession is about public saferty.

As trial date approaches, prosecutors drop charges against defendant who was jailed for nearly 3 years in Lakeland triple murder case. Turns out he was in at the time of the murder.

And with 1. Increase the probability of detection. That’s one way. Other ways are by not increasing future recidivism by arresting people for petty offenses and ushering them into a system that will only make them worse.

With 2., I think there’s a connection. Almost every agrees that what reduces recidivism is the probability of detection/getting caught. To solve murders, police need the trust and respect of witnesses in the areas where murders occur most frequently. Bad policing erodes trust.

Chicago homicides are down 15% compared to last year, down 27% over two years. Shooting incidents are down 14% compared to last year, 33% over two years. I look forward to the media's endless attention to this, like when Chicago crime was going up.

Violent crime is down 6% this year in Philly. But that won’t keep politicians from fearmongering.
