PSA: Queens! Your primary for DA is tomorrow. If you care about criminal justice reform, this is the most important election in decades.  Queens is the most ethnically diverse county in the country and deserves a DA that embraces that culture.  This candidate is not the one.

As Naomi Murakawa shows in her excellent book, liberals were equal partners (w conservatives) in creating mass incarceration in that they harnessed fears about crime - including the civil rights movement’s demand for prosecution of hate crimes - to build a massive carceral state.

Suggestion for the next Queens DA: "Ask City and State Corrections for the daily report of personal injuries, stabbings, assaults, rape and death of every Queens County prisoner that has been entrusted to them BY YOU."

As a public defender, I’ve represented undocumented clients fearful to come to court — and I couldn’t tell them they had nothing to fear. As District Attorney, I would not cooperate with ICE. Our immigrant neighbors deserve better.

“Sentencing [a person convicted of violent crime] to prison had no effect on their chances of being convicted of a violent crime within 5 years of being released from prison. This means that prison has no preventative effect on violence [vs. probation]."
