“KAMALA HARRIS HAS a prosecutor problem.

She’s running for president as a progressive, but as attorney general of California, she criminalized truancy — making it a crime for kids to be late for school and dragging into the criminal justice system even more disproportionately low-income, predominantly black and Latino families. She’s overlooked the misconduct of her prosecutors and fought to uphold their wrongfully secured convictions. She defended California’s choice to deny gender reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate, and in 2014, she appealed a federal judge’s holding that the death penalty was unconstitutional.

The list goes on and on. But in some ways, the details don’t matter. The problem isn’t that Harris was an especially bad prosecutor. She made positive contributions as well, encouraging education and re-entry programs for ex-offenders, for instance. The problem, more precisely, is that she was ever a prosecutor at all.

To become a prosecutor is to make a choice to align oneself with a powerful and fundamentally biased system. As Paul Butler, former prosecutor and author of “Chokehold: Policing Black Men,” told The Guardian, “as a lawyer who went to law school with a goal of helping black people and using my legal skills to make things better, the realization that the law itself was a mechanism to keep African-American people down was frightening.” He added,.. “





    • I never met Harry Connick Junior in the music business. But I never particularly cared for his style or his singing abilities -to be honest I never cared much for Frank Sinatra either and Harry Connick Junior has spent his life trying to be The New Frank Sinatra – and he isn’t even that. So I never had much time for him or his music. I think it’s overrated and so is he.

      Now that you told me who his dad was I can see why one day there was no such thing as Harry Connick Junior with Orchestra as a singer/leadier – to the OVERNIGHT success he garnered! He was promoted from within his father’s circles, financing and support without which he would be nothing – AND HE STILL IS “NADA”! Where the hell is he NOW? 😳😠😡💩
