Some U.S. police departments dump body-camera programs amid high costs

It is unbelievable that the cost/benefit analysis does not come out to Body Cameras = worth it. They protect officers AND the public/those being arrested. If officers are acting properly and within ethical bounds, why would you NOT want to be able to prove that with actual footage?!?!

Smaller departments that struggle with the cost of equipment and storage of data are ending or suspending programs aimed at transparency and accountability.

How the Rest of the Country Can Take Florida’s Lead in Embracing Second-Chance Criminal Justice Reform

A welcome reform, and somewhat of a follow-up to the last post. Keep reading, and there is a solid discussion of the economic/employment impact of past convictions. Locally, this is a major issue for many in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and while RI has made some recent improvements to the expungement/sealing of records (and it is VERY difficult to expunge a record in MA) the effects of a conviction affect many citizens and for much longer than one would think.

States across the country should take inspiration from the remarkable Amendment 4 campaign in Florida.

Almost half of U.S. adults have seen a family member jailed, study shows

Concerning to say the least.
Incarceration is NOT the only answer!! THIS is the outcome from years of politicians being "tough on crime" instead of addressing actual social issues (and injustices!!), not to mention the war on drugs, mandatory minimum sentences, three-strikes-and-you-are-out... the list goes on - NONE of these have been proven to reduce recidivism (ie committing of crimes after release/conviction) and/or make the streets a safer place. /end rant.

The high rate of incarceration in America has an impact on families too, a new report by a justice reform group found.

Trump vows executive order to end birthright citizenship, a move most legal experts say would run afoul of the Constitution

Also, so-called "anchor babies" (as referenced about 1/3 into the article) aren't able to sponsor relatives until they are 21 years old, so that part of the argument also fails.

If you have any immigration questions, please do not hesitate to call the office, 401-232-8888 and ask for Attorney Savage!

The action, previewed a week before the elections, would be certain to spark a battle over the 14th Amendment.

Jeff Sessions wants police to take more cash from American citizens

Great, just what we need- more silly policy/rhetoric that does nothing but create more bureaucracy and work (all while infringing on peoples's rights!), but makes the general (uninformed) public feel good. Maybe he could resurrect "three strikes" while he is at it.

His predecessor, Eric Holder, had curtailed the practice.
