Emphasize Community-Based Treatment for School Ditching, not Big Government

Across our country youth are being introduced to the justice system, not because they have done anything that is normally illegal, but solely because of their age. These youth are charged with violating “status offenses,” which are offenses only because of the status of the individual, in this case the individual’s age. Some of the most common status offenses are: truancy, missing curfew and being a runaway.

No-Knock Raids Create Dangers for the Families and Law Enforcement

Cory Maye, a loving father of an 18 month old daughter at the time, was sleeping in his living room the day after Christmas at 12:30 a.m. when he heard banging at the door. He had no prior record, but lived in a rough neighborhood, where break-ins had taken place before, so he grabbed his pistol and ran to the back bedroom to defend his daughter.

Mandatory Minimums: A 20th Century Solution to a 21st Century Problem (Part 2)

Mandatory Minimums: A 20th Century Solution to a 21st Century Problem (Part 1)

The punishment should fit the crime. A simple maxim that is no longer always followed in this country. For too long many nonviolent criminals have had sentences imposed on them from Washington, overriding the presiding judge's assessment of the facts. When punishments are mandated from afar, the punishment will not always fit the crime. It is time to get big government out of the courtroom and restore the judiciary's role as outlined in the Constitution.
