As Florida insists there's nothing it can do to stop a 19-year-old from buying an AR-15 and shooting up a school, please remember that in 1990 the state arrested a 19-year-old for selling a 2 Live Crew album to a kid.

Quite extraordinary, from J. Ginsburg. Have to imagine this rhetoric will find its way into some of the campus due process complaints & perhaps even a decision or two:

Remarkable thing about the Ginsburg comments is that she brings up the unfairness in campus tribunals unprompted; the Q previous conversation was solely -oriented.

Little soapbox: Social media draws us to the most sensational of societies ills, which necessarily correspond poorly with the ills that cause the most harm, because those are too widespread to draw peculiar attention. Meanwhile 11 teens die every day from texting while driving.

If you're going to invent a constitutional exception out of whole cloth, you may as well restrict types of firearms, for which there is a historical argument, rather than types of people, for which there is none.

There is nothing in the text or history of the 2nd Amendment that makes it okay to deny gun rights to the mentally ill or to felons. This is just cafeteria constitutionalism.

A Russian spy, a sexual predator, and a businessman walk into a bar. The bartender says, “what can I get you, Mr. President?"

This. Everyone denouncing gun control now has to go up against these kids. And going up against these kids makes you look really really bad.

The police conduct here is outrageous and they should be held to account. The problem is they likely won’t be b/c the cases will get dismissed or resolved w/ non-criminal dispositions. The unlawfulness of conduct won’t be litigated & so there won’t even be a public record of it.

Utterly despicable that prosecutes dozens of marijuana cases a day in a county where 100,000s white people use marijuana. It’s so shameful. And shame on all of the “reformers” who give him cover.

Back before there was Twitter, there were online comment sections on most websites. Typically, the quality of discourse in a unmoderated comment section was very low.

Requirements for prospective trial registration are 12 years old but improperly registered trials are still submitted to The BMJ. What happens after we reject them for this reason? 96% are published, most without an explanation of the problem.

9. It should be the job of the District Attorney not merely to remedy wrongful convictions, but also to remedy excessive/disproportionate sentences. There are so many wildly excessive sentences – people who are guilty but who got FAR too much time.

6. In fact there are more than 1100 people serving LWOP sentences in PA for these felony murder convictions. Many of them played a tiny role in a homicide they *did not intend*.

5. Every state has these unfair and disproportionate felony murder laws, but Pennsylvania's – with its LWOP man/min – is especially broad and punitive. And it has been used broadly and recklessly by past PA DAs like Lynne Abraham (Philly's DA during the 1990/2000s).

4. And shockingly – and totally unfairly – often because of a plea deal or other quirk of the system, it's not uncommon for the look-out or getaway driver to get a harsher sentence – LIFE WITH NO POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE – than the person who actually pulled the trigger.

10. Krasner's new head of the Conviction Integrity Unit understands that and promises to look at cases where the person is guilty but is serving far too much time.
