Re: “'TV T.J.' Donovan: The Likely Next AG Pushes Criminal Justice Reform

Good for TVTJ but a word of advice - learn what the AGs office actually has the authority to do and the scope of subject matter handled by the AGs office or keep quiet. Criminal justice is just a small part of it all. For those if us who are aware of the breadth of matters that the AGs office handles TJ comes across as a know nothing ninny every time he opens his mouth. Surely he must know people in the AGs office. He really needs to talk to them and get a clue!

Re: “Two Paths Converge With Fatal Consequences in Winooski

What makes cops see every individual who fits one of the profiles they are obviously taught as criminal? Secondly, why do they believe their perception means they can murder that person, even though they have not been fired at or otherwise attacked?

It seems to me that law enforcement should be taught that even those whom they believe to be criminally involved have rights that should be respected. Besides the basic human right to life, one of those other rights is the right to be afforded a trial. When police murder suspects, at the least they deprive those suspects of those human and civil rights. The fact that law enforcement does not appear to see suspects as either having the right to life or the right to a trial says to me that they are not police officers, but military forces trained to kill anything that moves. The fact that so many police have served in combat zones where they could kill anything that moved is something that needs to be looked at when hiring new recruits. The fact that police act this way in their own nation and community is indicative of a police state.

That’s not what we signed up for.
