Why the US Needs Prison Reform

Bean’s post about one of the fringe benefits of the prison-industrial complex – namely, that inmates are counted in the census for reapportionment purposes even though they can’t vote – leads me to the subject of prison reform in the US, which I haven’t addressed yet even though I should have.

The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world – about 700 per 100,000 people, give or take. Now, you’d think that it’s what’s deterred crime, causing the US to have a survey crime rate half of 23%, while the USA’s incarceration rate has increased by more than 50% since 1991 and gotten about the same reduction in crime.

Looking at the actual breakdown of inmates suggests that the USA could easily slash its prison population. A significant percentage of admissions is for drug offenses; indeed, about 9% of new admissions are for mere drug possession without proven intent to sell. Including people who are counted as drug dealers even though they are not – two college students sharing a joint are considered to engage in dealing – yields an even higher figure.

It gets worse. Black people comprised 17% of drug users and 37% of drug arrests in 1998. In general blacks use cocaine more than whites, but the margin is far lower for powder cocaine than for crack cocaine. And, as you can imagine, sentences for crack cocaine are harsher: a 1986 law set the minimum amount needed for a mandatory sentence at 500 grams for powder cocaine versus 5 for crack.

Almost all people sent to prison would be in the workforce and likely unemployed if released. The US has a labor force of 153 million, so adding 2 million inmates to the number of unemployed increases the unemployment rate from 4.6% to 5.9%. Among blacks, the labor force’s size is 17.5 million, so adding 900,000 black inmates increases their unemployment rate from 8%, lower than the white rate in France and Germany, to 13%. Although the USA still has a better black-to-white unemployment ratio than the comparable minority-to-white ratio of every European country I’ve checked, much of it derives from throwing black people to jail, where they don’t enter unemployment or labor participation statistics.

Not surprisingly, black civil rights groups consider prison reform an important priority. And not surprisingly, everyone else doesn’t. For white conservatives, disenfranchising large numbers of black people whose sole crime is private use of a substance Congress believes it has the right to tell people not to use is a good way of holding power. Once that dynamic is in place, they can rationalize giving ex-felons the right to vote as just a Democratic ploy to get more votes.

White Democrats, in turn, have mostly given up on doing anything for black people. The Clintons have spearheaded the technique of talking the talk and then supporting harsher drug laws that benefit nobody; sadly, Obama is so bad at black politics that Clinton is once again the black people’s candidate despite having done nothing to earn their support.

One of the fringe benefits of having a large prison-industrial complex in the US is that once incarceration rates come down to sane levels, a lot of the overcrowding problems, which contribute to insanely high rates of prison rape (by one estimate, 21% of male inmates experience sexual assault, of which 7% experience rape). Of course, another contributor to prison rape is the cultural attitude that doing anything for inmates is weak on crime.

When you think about it true, cruelty toward criminals isn’t required for being tough on crime. It’s after all how things work in foreign policy: typically, the best results come from policies based on diplomacy rather than naked aggression. It’s the same with crime. Giuliani credits New York’s crime drop to his broken windows policy, but in fact that drop started several years earlier, correlating with Dinkins’ assuming office and implementing less glamorous programs, such as community policing. No harsh sentences are needed; increasing arrest rates is what deters criminals.

This already produces several components of the high incarceration rate of the US, all of which can be manipulated to reduce it to normal levels without increasing the crime rate.

First, the drug war doesn’t do anything good. Drug abuse is a public health problem, not a crime. That’s how people who snort superglue or drink excessively are treated; why are cocaine and marijuana treated so differently? Dealing is something else, but unless you can catch the people who actually run the show, there’s no point; unfortunately, the US seems intent on not doing that.

Second, 10-year sentences should be reserved to very serious criminals. If you’re not a rapist, a murderer, a terrorist, a serial violent offender, or an important crime boss, you shouldn’t get more than a single-figure sentence. Even if you take an economic view of crime wherein criminals respond to harsher sentences, it’s not linear. There’s a huge jump between 0 and 1 year, which is far greater than the difference between 7 and 8. The difference between not getting arrested and getting arrested and not prosecuted is likely to be greater than the difference between getting 7 years and getting 8 years.

Third, the two most serious crimes, murder and rape, are in most cases committed by someone known to the victim. As such, they respond better to policies aimed at defusing volatile situations, such as gun control, encouraging women to report rapes, and programs aimed at reducing domestic violence, which comprises 14% of all serious violent crimes and 35% of serious violent crimes committed by non-strangers.

Fourth, the justice system should be reformed to allow accused people the resources needed to mount competent defense. Public defenders who fail to clear a person later shown to be innocent should at the minimum face a hearing in which they’re likely to be disbarred if they fail to pass a reasonable person standard; this is true regardless of any plea bargain. Similar standards should apply to DAs who keep prosecuting people they know to be innocent. Furthermore, public defenders’ salaries should be increased in order to encourage promising lawyers to not always take the prosecution’s side in criminal trials.

Some of the problems inherent in the justice system are problems of the common law system. The overreliance on plea bargains, which encourage innocent people to plead guilty if they have incompetent counsel, creates an assembly line justice system. But that’s mostly a question of counsel competence, when it comes right down to it. What’s more, if it’s considered good enough to throw a criminal who pleads guilty to jail for 5 years, it should be good enough to throw him for 5 years if he pleads not guilty and is convicted. Punishing people for exercising their right to a fair trial isn’t very consistent with civil liberties.

However, other problems in the US have nothing to do with the common law system. Mandatory minimums are a recent innovation of politicians who are more interested in looking tough on crime than in being tough on crime; as such, they can be safely scrapped. Elected DAs are under immense pressure to convict; Britain and Canada do just as well with appointed prosecutors.

And fifth and finally, giving black people harsher sentences should be considered racial discrimination. The military lets minorities complain of discrimination or harassment, and, if the complaints check out, punishes the offending officer or at least blocks his promotions. The same rules should govern the justice system. Judges who discriminate in sentencing and lawyers who discriminate in jury selection don’t belong in court. Racial disparities go beyond laws; the same law is applied more harshly against black people, both in sentencing and in the decision to incarcerate.

Incarcerating more people is not the solution to anything. Abortion is something that should be made more rare if only because it’s a less pleasant experience than using birth control. But incarceration is not merely unpleasant, but a serious loss of liberty. It should be reserved for when it’s necessary rather than for when a politician wants to tell racist constituents that he’s cruel to black people.

    1. As a former prosecutor from Michigans’ Upper Peninsula, John Voelker (who wrote the best selling novel, Anatomy of a Murder), once wrote, the American Penal System is based on the mad dog theory. Lock ‘em up like a mad dog and keep ‘em locked up! He went on to vent as to the wastefulness of such a system. Unfortunately, most people like to listen to people like Fred Goldman, the father of Ron Goldman who was quite possibly not murdered by O.J. Simpson. Goldman says he wants the bad guys locked up, although he is somewhat vague as to the identity of the bad guys (other then O. J. Simpson of course).

    2. The difficulty with locking up low level drug dealers is that there is a plentiful supply of replacements waiting in line to replace them when they are incarcerated. This seems to be a problem which is being attacked from the supply side when maybe it should be attacked from the demand side.

  2. muppt says:

    they should try innovative solutions, like selling fake drugs mixed with chemicals that induces diarrhea, the government can also make a profit at the same time.

  3. Alon Levy says:

    Muppt, you’re a sick human being.

  4. muppt says:

    your attitude is the reason why politicians don’t want to try these innovative solutions, because some people would say it’s unethical, it’s a scam, bla bla bla… but hey, if they don’t spend money buy fake diarrhea inducing drugs they would be spending it on real drugs anyway, so it’s better the money goes to the government instead of drug dealing mafias, and nobody has to go to jail. I bet after a drug user tried these explosive diarrhea inducing drugs 2-3 times, they would never want to see any drug ever again.

  5. Alon Levy says:

    Some drug dealers are ahead of the curve and cut their stashes so strongly that anyone who takes them ODs and dies. And still people do drugs.

  6. bean says:

    So glad to see you writing about this, Alon. I agree wholeheartedly that prison reform deserves — and requires — greater attention. Which is why I am frustrated that the issue doesn’t even seem to be on the Democrats’ radar screen. The Republicans — lead by evangelicals — might even have the edge on this one (there was an article in the NYT magazine a couple of months ago about religiously-inspired rehabilitations programs). This is in large part because prison reform is just plainly not politically popular (who wants to help convicts, the thinking goes, when we have so many other societal problems?). Because of prison reform’s political hot potato quality, it is up to the voters to lead the way on this one and to call for change.

    I’m not optimistic that anything will change soon. But by continuing the conversation in the blogosphere for the time being, I am confident that we can keep the issue alive until its politically viable.

    Ah, but in crime policy and foreign policy, the goal is not getting results. It’s proving you have an enormous penis. And nothing screams “gargantuan man-meat” like naked aggression.

    I agree with you on the need to move beyond vindictiveness toward alleged criminals, which is why I hate to see you turning that vindictiveness against the public defenders:

    Public defenders who fail to clear a person later shown to be innocent should at the minimum face a hearing in which they’re likely to be disbarred if they fail to pass a reasonable person standard

  8. Stentor says:

    I’d also like to note, as PSA to any spammers, that my previous post did not get caught in the spam queue despite containing the phrase “gargantuan man-meat.”

  9. Alon Levy says:

    I don’t think that’s vindicative (well, disbarring may be over the top, but not reprimanding and then firing). There’s a huge problem of incompetent public defenders. One obvious way of addressing it is making PDs as attractive as DAs, which involves salary hikes. But there also needs to be a way of dragooning PDs to be better, which involves some crackdown on those who do nothing to defend their clients. Certainly in the case of PDs who fall asleep at hearings, what to do is obvious.

  11. SLC says:

    Re muppt

    Canadians should be fed chemicals that induce diarrhea.

  12. Stentor says:

    Losing a case is not the same thing as personal incompetence. If a PD shows a pattern of losing too many cases, or if there’s independent evidence (such as falling asleep in court) that they’re personally incompetent, then yes, discipline is in order.

    Based on what I heard from Christina and her friends when they applied to be PDs, I remain unconvinced that a major problem is that PDs are lazy, or that increasing the threat of firing would motivate them to fix the problems.

  13. I am not particularly commenting on this blog entry – but the blog as a whole> I can genuinely say that I have never – in all my time of trying to find blogs – found someone with so much to say and so intelligently on so many different subjects. Thank you for spending so much time and giving me somethinng to add to my fave list.

  14. American prisons really reflect our society-wide values and obviously we don’t like our people very much and feel its our God given right to be cruel and sadistic to those we can label as discards. Laws give us this power. Once labeled we can then discard someone, and put them in a fearful and punishing enviroment to permanently cripple their mind, body, and soul. Put someone in a segregation unit without positive human contact in a hermetically sealed iron and concrete cell long enough, usually in just a few months, and you will damage their brain enough to ruin them for life. We are building more of these types of units right and left.
    Either we blame ourselves as a people, or we palm it off, and blame our leaders, our ruling class which is so convienent. Citizens have to get involved and they will have to set the agenda. The status quo is destructive to our society as the numbers keep growing mindlessly and its taking a huge toll on so many families and communities all across America. We can no longer claim we are not a police state or a well intentioned people. I just don’t get how we can just create a ruthless emboldened judicial system and just walk away and leave it in the hands of “professionals” and leaders who have everything to gain keeping it just as it is, and in fact, expanding it right to your front door. As I write this today, a Virginia women is being sentenced to two years for simply throwing a beer and wine party for her 16 year old high school kids at her house mandating that no-one drive. No-one was hurt, No-one was legally drunk when the police arrived. Now another American family has been destroyed, put through 5 years of court, and a mother sentenced to prison. Who can this possibly help? This is insanity and not freedom in a country where the wealthy leaders endlessly brag shamelessly about it. How is this mentality any better than a gang who comes knocking at your door demanding your life? Whether they have a tattoo or a city badge is no different as the result is the same. When did we become so submissive to authority in this country that we allow it to rape us at will over a growing proliferation of no-tolerance laws? They always sight an extreme example to throw the noose over everyone’s neck. If you re-read the bill of rights you will find a completely different kinder gentler country then what we have become today. Our overcrowded prisons are just a visible sign of our growing intolerance of our own citizens.

    TENS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN PRISON INMATES NEED INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE FOR LEGAL FEES IN HELPING THEM ATTEMPT TO EXONERATE THEMSELVES FROM OUR US PENAL COLONIES!

    Most Americans are well aware that there are plenty of innocent poorer US citizens in our prison systems nationwide,but very few of us have ever heard about our US Congressional representatives who are mostly lawyers themselves, denying our Middle Class and Working Poor Americans proper legal counsel for their federal appeals. When any poorer American is charged with a Federal crime all legal costs and appeals are paid for,but when one is charged in the various 50 states and run out of higher court state appeal opportunities and need to appeal to the Federal courts,it appears that these poorer and mostly uneducated prison inmates are left to their own best lawyering skills to attempt to write a federal appeal that could sway a US Federal judge to grant them a new retrial.
    Our US Congressional Representatives sleep soundly every night knowing there are reported to be an estimated 100,000 innocent Americans (some residing for decades even on death row) in our US Prisons who have been denied proper legal counsel to help them attempt to exonerate themselves with their Federal Appeals?
    *USA WHERE FREE SPEECH IS RESPECTED AND PROTECTED

  16. DOUGLAS FIELD says:

    Which Americans are interested in protecting our innocent US prison inmates??
    We have all been made publicly aware that Americas 100,000 innocent and falsely imprisoned American inmates nationwide,have no real assistance or protections afforded them by our US Congress concerning their federal retrial appeals!
    How in the world can affluent guilty American defendants with proper federal appeal legal counsel,have the greater advantage of receiving new retrials being granted them from our US Federal Judges,then the tens of thousands of innocent poor American prison inmates who are being forced to represent their own federal appeal legal cases from prison??
    Innocent but poor prison inmates who are being denied new federal appeal retrials in mass all across our nation,have never had anyone in America interested in focusing on their horror of being falsely imprisoned for decades in the wealthiest nation in the world. Without proper legal assistance being afforded these innocent prison inmates,they will never really ever be capable of exonerating themselves through the federal appeal judicial process!
    We ask every caring and loving American to just attempt to put yourself into this same exact situation for just one minute in your mind. Being falsely imprisoned in an American prison for 25 or 30 years without the US Congress affording you proper legal counsel to ever have the slightest opportunity to possibly exonerate yourself using the federal appeal process.
    Lawyers for poor Americans has just recently begun our national educational plea for the hearts and souls of the American people concerning this injustice,and our mission of exposing this injustice and freeing all of our innocent fellow Americans from our national prisons, will not stop until our US Congress legislates the needed and proper funding to bring our innocent and missing American prison inmates back home !!!

  17. POORER AMERICANS NEED WORLD’S COURT HELP !

    WILL IMTERNATIONAL COME TO THEIR RESCUE ?
    I hate to say it, but I do believe that this injustice that our US judicial system has been inflicting on the tens of thousands of our Middle Class and Working Poor Amercans (who are the least educated US prison inmates) with prolonged incarceration, is a very realistic human rights violation if not a crime against humanity issue.

    The International World Court and United Nations should be investigating why only wealthy Americans are able to receive federal retrials using proper legal representation and US poorer prison inmates are forced to be their own best lawyers from prison and failing in mass at their opportunities for federal retrial reviews.

    Our judicial system just recently released 360 men who spent 25 to 40 years being incarcerated for rapes they never committed! Had these judicial victims been given appeal attorneys for their federal appeal reviews, just maybe they might have been given retrials and not have had to wait until DNA evidence exonerated them decades later.

    Until our judicial system becomes so perfected to always accurately charge and convict the right individuals with crimes,we all have to stay focused on preserving every legal opportunity for the truly innocent to be able to rise up and out of our cold hearted prison system that treats everyone in their grasp as guilty equals.

  18. Student Law Intern says:

    I agree with this article in many areas. However the incentives upon prosecutors and Public defenders and plea bargaining are one aspect that not many people talk about when they are discussing criminal justice. The reality is that the reasons for plea bargaining are many, but to simplify it: There are too few courts, and too few attorneys for the huge number of criminal trials in the US today. My research has shown that over 60% of all US felony trials (federal and state courts) are plea bargained. Misdemeanors are in the 90s. I do not believe either prosecutors or PDs are lazy/evil, I believe they are human. (At least the ones I interviewed and worked with.) They are working in a system where they have a literally unbearable work load, and told to make it work in a very small number of courts. The only way they can make it through their jobs, day in and day out, is plea bargaining. The same motives apply to judges, whose job is to move a huge caseloads through their courts quickly.

    Also, as far as attacking public defenders, the trouble is MOST public defenders lose MOST of their cases, the police are right at least half the time, and so it would be unfair to punish them too harshly. The point is to find the innocent ones, which may be only 49% of the people at trial.

    However, overall you were dead right about the “assembly line justice” in the US today. The lawyers in the system are not evil, they are just told to do the impossible, and they take the only path they can, plea bargaining. The only one with an incentive to change this system is the defendant, who has the least power.

    It is necessary therefore to change the situation under which the public lawyers operate, either by lowering the number of cases in the criminal justice system, (through decriminalizing some actions) or by investing in as much in the court infrastructure as we are in the prisons. Because unless one of these two factors changes, the level of legal justice (paid for by money to courts) will decrease in effectiveness as the focus on punishment increases and stretches it beyond its capacity. If it hasn’t already.

    Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

    This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

    This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

    Sadly, the true US *legal* Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

    For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

    It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

    This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World!

    I’m a little late on writing about this story (via several sources), but it sure is a doozy.

    You know how it’s common knowlege that most appeals aren’t successful? Well, if you were a pro-se petitioner in Louisiana for the last 13 years, you knew that you wouldn’t win. Why is that? Because the Chief Judge of their Court of Appeals directed his clerk to summarily deny all appeals from pro-se petitioners without circulating the appeal to other judges.

    The clerk, ridden with guilt, committed suicide earlier this year and left a note confessing everything.

    This immoral and apparently illegal policy was in place until Jerrold Peterson, the staffer charged with implementing it, blew his brains out in May of last year. Peterson was driven to it in part, his suicide note suggested, by guilt over the nefarious tasks the judges made him perform.

    In his note Peterson explained how the court gave indigent appellants the bum’s rush.

    Although every criminal writ application is supposed to be reviewed by three judges, he was deputed to winnow out any that had been filed pro se and arrange for their automatic rejection.

    Thus were an estimated 2,500 appeals deep-sixed without any judicial consideration whatsoever.

    Now, facing public embarassment and possible ethical violations, the Louisiana Supreme Court has stepped in and asked…get this…the same appellate court to look at the appeals again. Note that they did not ask the Court to conduct an investigation into this practice, but simply to consider those appeals that were so summarily denied.

    Because, if we placate the defendants with another cursory look at their appeals, we can sweep the ethical violations under the carpet.

    At first this whole thing seemed rather odd to me. After all, how is this even possible? Here’s how:

    Edward Dufresne, Chief Judge of the Fifth Circuit, took charge of pro se appeals in 1994. He then had Peterson prepare rulings denying writs for all of them and signed off “without so much as a glance,” according to the suicide note. “No judge ever saw the writ application before the ruling was prepared by me,” Peterson wrote in a second suicide note to the Judiciary Commission.

    The rulings also bore the names, though not the signatures, of judges Marion Edwards and Wally Rothschild. Neither Edwards nor Rothschild had any clue as to what was in the applications, or even knew that they had been filed, according to Peterson.

    So you’ve got one complicit judge and maybe three. But there are 5 more on that court. What of them? Are we to really believe that these 5 (or 7) other judges never once questioned the stark absence of pro-se appeals? Particularly in Louisiana, whose system has the following characteristics:

    * About 90 percent of criminal defendants in Louisiana are indigent.
    * Louisiana only provides post-conviction legal aid in death penalty cases. Everyone else must either hire a lawyer, find a lawyer to handle their case pro bono, or handle the appeal themselves. Obviously, most have no choice but to opt for the latter.
    * One criminal defense lawyer in Louisiana told me that if you’re convicted of murder in Louisiana and you’re innocent, you’re actually better off getting the death penalty. At least then you’ll get a team of lawyers, investigators, and experts to help with your appeal.

    This from a state whose criminal justice system was already crumbling. It’s hard to believe that people such as Judge Dufresne take an oath to uphold the law and to prove equal protection under it. Disbarment may be enough, but only barely.

    Justice delayed is no justice at all.

    AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS TELL CONGRESS ~ SHOW US THE MONEY ?

    WILL AMERICA’S VARIOUS RELIGIOUS LEADERS NOW TAKE A UNITED STAND WITH THE IVORY TOWER LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD US CONGRESS FOR FUTURE FUNDING TO BE ALSO BE ALLOCATED TO OUR UNDERFUNDED US JUDICIAL SYSTEM ?

    *** OVER 100,000 INNOCENT MIDDLE CLASS & WORKING POORER AMERICAN’S ENSLAVED IN OUR AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW WHILE TRILLION$ ARE BEING DOLED OUT TO OTHER US CONGRESSIONAL BUDDIES !!!!!

    PRESIDENT OBAMA NEEDS TO TELL THE IVORY TOWER LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD DEMOCRATIC US CONGRESS ~ GIVE THEM LIBERTY OR GIVE THEM LAWYERS !

    WILL THE INTERNATIONAL WORLD COURT, THE POPE AND THE NFL PLAYERS ALSO COME TO THE RESCUE OF THESE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF ENSLAVED POORER AMERICAN’S ? ** THERE ARE OVER 100,000 INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN’S WITHOUT PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR US PRISONS NATIONWIDE AND MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS MORE ON THE WAY !!

    ***The CATHOLIC CHURCH could also now really help AMERICA by arranging a speech from the VATICAN by the POPE concerning THIS modern day ENSLAVEMENT of POORER AMERICAN’S by our complacent IVORY TOWER US CONGRESS who appears to be more interested in financing other US Congressional interests then our UNDERFUNDED AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM.

    ****THE POPE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STATE MURDER OF TROY DAVIS IN GEORGIA, AND A JUDICIAL EXECUTION OF TROY DAVIS IN GEORGIA *** MANY INTERNATIONAL CITIZENS HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO BOYCOTT THIS ROGUE STATE OF GEORGIA

    *** WILL MILLIONS OF CARING AMERICAN’S AND INTERNATIONAL CITIZENS AVOID GIVING THE STATE OF GEORGIA ANY FUTURE BUSINE$$ IF A 3YR. BOYCOTT TAKES PLACE OVER THIS STATE NOT EVEN OFFERING JUSTICE WITH A NEW LEGITIMATE CRIMINAL TRIAL FOR MR.TROY DAVIS? IT’S BEEN SAID BY MANY THAT A THREE YEAR INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF THIS STATE MIGHT VERY WELL COST IT TENS OF MILLION$ WHERE A NEW AND FAIR TRIAL OF TROY DAVIS MIGHT COST THE STATE ONLY $100,000.

    **** A SPECIAL FEDERAL TASK FORCE MADE UP OF INVESTIGATORS AND LAWYERS DESIGNED TO VERIFY EVERY ASPECT OF THE 3,300 VARIOUS DEATH ROW LEGAL CASES NATIONWIDE,IS OUR COUNTRIES ONLY REAL METHOD TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT ALLOW STATES LIKE GEORGIA TO CONTINUE ATTEMPTING TO MURDER POSSIBLE INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN’S LIKE MR.TROY DAVIS!

    *** FOR THOSE MILLIONS OF AMERICAN’S WHO BELIEVE IN GOD, WE ALL HAVE TO WONDER IN TOTAL AMAZEMENT, HOW OUR AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS HAVE ALLOWED THIS HORROR TO CONTINUE WRONGFULLY EXECUTING AND INCARCERATING INNOCENT AMERICAN’S ALL ACROSS OUR COUNTRY ???

    lawyersforpooramericans@yahoo.com(424-247-2013) **WWW VOLUNTEERS DEDICATED TO LOBBYING THE POPE,WORLD INTERNATIONAL COURT,THE ROYAL FAMILY,NFL PLAYERS, OPRAH,PRINCE CHARLES AND CARING AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS FOR MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS WHO ARE BEING WRONGFULLY EXECUTED AND IMPRISONED ALL ACROSS AMERICA DUE TO LACK OF PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR UNDERFUNDED US JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN NEED OF C*H*A*N*G*E…..

    ** THESE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY being inflicted on our poorer American’s, needs to become a WORLD COURT INVESTIGATION ISSUE ! ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* AMERICA’S GREAT LIE by Gerry Spence The idea that we should furnish the poor with a public defender has been an effort to save our nation from shame – for sending the poor to prison without adequate representation. But today the nation’s public defender system has become a mockery of justice. To provide an accused with a public defender who has three hundred other cases to defend is simply to laugh in the face of both justice and the accused himself. It takes me months to prepare the average criminal case for trial. The trial itself can take weeks, even months.

    While O.J. Simpson was being tried in Los Angeles for murder, a case that cost millions to defend and months to conclude, another black man was being tried in the same courthouse for a similar murder. It took only three days for a jury to find him guilty. He had a public defender with scores of other cases to defend. Many prosecutors boast that they have over a 90 percent conviction rate. Little wonder. Under the present public defender system the prosecutors should enjoy one hundred percent convictions, and many in fact approach perfect conviction rates. The public defenders in seven states have finally refused to take on any new cases. It’s about time. If I walked into court to defend my client and had never talked to him, never previously opened his file, never discovered the witnesses against him, much less interviewed them, never reviewed the evidence in the hands of the prosecution, never demanded my clients rights to discovery, never read the cases relevant to the case at hand, never prepared the cross examination of the witnesses against my client, never … and on and on, I would be guilty of legal malpractice. Every public defender who purports to represent an accused under circumstances in which he or she has neither the time nor the resources to fully defend the client is guilty of malpractice.

    These public defenders cannot be saved from malpractice because they are crushed under a ridiculous case load – some with even as many as five hundred cases or more. No one who was accused with such an attorney has received a fair trial and every such accused is entitled to an appeal on that basis alone. The judge must not sentence the accused under these circumstances because the judge would be taking part in a fraud on the system. Yet hundreds of thousands of indigent persons go to prison each year under circumstances no better than those outlined above. When I was coming up as a young prosecutor, the defendants were represented pro bono by the lawyers in the local bar. It was part of the duty of members of the bar to take part in the justice system. Today that idea is unheard of. The practice of law is first and foremost a money-making profession. I see nothing wrong with that notion, but what about giving back? Every trial lawyer should be required to take on a couple of pro bono cases every year. At our office we have a separate pro bono law firm and have for over ten years. It often brings us more satisfaction than our big money wins.

    The job of a lawyer is to represent the people – the lost, the forgotten, the damned, the hated, the voiceless and the poor. Indeed, God forbid, we may one day become one of those who are entitled to representation but cannot afford it. Every time an accused goes to prison without having received a fair trial we are one step closer to the loss of our own freedoms. Our rights are, in fact, being fought for by public defenders who can never fulfill their duty to their clients because of their pathetic, impossible, caseloads. When they fail, we are in danger. Our system becomes a hypocritical charade. And we prove, once and for all, that the promised justice for all in America is an evil lie that is imposed on the poor. If only those with money can receive justice, then how can we permit our children to recite a horrible falsehood in school when they chant, “with liberty and justice for all.” That can no longer be the truth in America. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** GERRY SPENCE IS A RENOWNED LAWYER AND PATRIOTIC AMERICAN WHO EVEN AT THE AGE OF 82, CONTINUES TO SHOW A KEEN INTEREST IN WANTING TO BETTER AMERICA FOR THE MASSES OF POORER AMERICANS BEING CAUGHT IN OUR UNDERFUNDED JUDICIAL SYSTEM.LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS THANKS YOU MR.SPENCE FOR TAKING YOUR TIME AND INTEREST IN SPEAKING THE TRUTH ABOUT A JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN NEED OF C*H*A*N*G*E…

  33. LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS says:

    DOES PRESIDENT OBAMA & OUR U.S.SUPREME COURT DO WINDOWS??

    ~ AMERICANS CONTINUE TO DEMAND FAIR TRIALS IN IRAN & NORTH KOREA,BUT NOT HERE IN OUR GLASS HOUSE ~

    OUR AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY ONLY OBLIGATED ( U.S.SUPREME COURT 1963 GIDEON RULING ) TO PROVIDE OUR POORER AMERICANS WITH A INITIAL CRIMINAL LAWYER AT THEIR TRIALS. MANY TIMES IN AMERICAN STATE TRIALS THERE IS REALLY VERY LITTLE INVESTIGATION BEING OFFERED TO DEFEND OUR POORER AMERICANS AGAINST EVEN UNFOUNDED CRIMINAL CHARGES ?

    IF AMERICA IS ONLY NOW FINDING OUT ABOUT (17YRS AFTER THE FACT) SEVEN OF NINE WITNESSES LYING IN THE TROY DAVIS LEGAL CASE,ARE WE NOW SUPPOSE TO THINK THAT TROY DAVIS HAD A PROPER LEGAL Defense AT HIS CRIMINAL TRIAL IN GEORGIA ???

    CARING AMERICANS KNOW REAL JUSTICE AND SADLY OUR POORER AMERICANS ARE CONTINUING TO HAVE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY INFLICTED ON THEM IN OUR U.S.JUDICIAL SYSTEM.WE CONTINUE EXECUTING INNOCENT AMERICAN CITIZENS ACROSS OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE OUR IVORY TOWER U.S. CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD HAVE NEVER EVEN CARED ABOUT SPENDING THE NEEDED $$$ TO CORRECT THIS LACK OF PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR OUR MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS.

    FALSE IMPRISONMENT FOR TWENTY YEARS OR MORE ,WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS,RAPES AND MURDERS IN OUR AMERICAN PRISONS ARE HAPPENING EVERY DAY IN AMERICA AND JUST MAYBE THE TIME HAS COME WITH OUR SPECIAL AND UNIQUE PRESIDENT AND U.S.ATTORNEY GENERAL RUNNING OUR COUNTRY TO OFFER OUR POORER CITIZENS THE NEEDED C*H*A*N*G*E….. TO HELP MAKE OUR NEW AMERICA AND HER UNJUST JUDICIAL SYSTEM A MUCH MORE JUST SOCIETY FOR ALL AMERICANS TO RESPECT AND CHERISH !!!

    AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL,AND THE NAACP ARE JUST TWO INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL HIGHLY RESPECTED ORGANIZATIONS THAT HAVE BROUGHT THESE TWO SEPERATE AMERICAN HUMAN LIFE INJUSTICES TO THE WORLDS ATTENTION,BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE IN THINKING THAT TROY DAVIS AND MUMIA ABU – JAMAL ARE ALONE IN NOT EVEN BEING ABLE TO RECEIVE NEW AND FAIR TRIALS IN THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD !

    ** GEORGIA HAS HAD AT LEAST FIVE OTHER PREVIOUS LEGAL CASES OF INNOCENT BEING RELEASED ON THEIR DEATH ROW BEFORE THEY WERE FALSELY EXECUTED **
    DOES THAT MEAN THAT TROY DAVIS IS ALSO INNOCENT OF THE CRIME OF MURDER? NO,BUT MOST ALL AMERICANS WANT TO KNOW FOR SURE THAT WHEN SOMEONE IS EXECUTED IN ANY AMERICAN STATE, THAT THEY ARE TRULY THE GUILTY PARTY WHO
    DID THE CRIME,NOT JUST THE TIME ?

    I DO NOT SEE WHY ANYONE WOULD OBJECT TO HAVING NEW TRIALS FOR ANY OF OUR DEATH ROW INMATES IN AMERICA WHERE TREMENDOUS DOUBT ABOUT THEIR INITIAL GUILT IS IN PLAY ? WHY WOULD ANY FAMILY MEMBER OF ANY MURDERED RELATIVE WANT OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM TO RUSH TO SO CALLED JUSTICE AND BE IN REALITY CONTRIBUTING TO HAVING ANOTHER POSSIBLE INNOCENT PERSON MURDERED IN THE NAME OF THEIR FORMER INNOCENT LOVED ONE?

    LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS AT THAT TIME HAD ALSO REQUESTED OF IRAN AND THEIR PRESIDENT MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THIS SAME PRISONER EXCHANGE OF THE AMERICAN U.S. JOURNALIST ROXANA SABERI FOR U.S.PRISON INMATES TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA & MUMIA ABU ~ JAMAL OF PENNSYLVANIA.

    MILLIONS OF AMERICANS HAVE BEEN ATTEMPTING TO SECURE NEW AND FAIR TRIALS FOR THESE TWO ( POSSIBLE INNOCENT) BLACK AMERICANS ON DEATH ROW HERE IN AMERICA AND NOW HAVE TO AGAIN TURN TO OTHERS OUTSIDE OF AMERICA FOR THEIR POSSIBLE HELP !!!

    AMERICA HAS NEVER REALLY OFFERED OUR POORER CITIZENS LIKE TROY DAVIS AND MUMIA ABU ~ JAMAL FAIR OPPORTUNITIES TO HAVE PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR U.S. COURTS SO IT HAS BECOME VERY OBVIOUS TO MILLIONS OF AMERICANS AND OTHERS WORLDWIDE THAT INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE CONTINUING TO BE FALSELY EXECUTED RIGHT HERE IN THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD !!!
