Excellent article about how government SHOULD work ... thanks DW!
Good job SPD & the Forensic Unit ... hopefully bringing some answers to the family/friends of Ruby.
DPA ... not sure who you are, but thanks for your service "old friend" :) If you've followed my comments, you've noted that I respect Larry and try to tone down the denigrating of candidates. I didn't/don't "hang the insider label" on Haskell ... the article did. As you likely know, I have worked at the City, County & State levels and might still be considered an insider in my current appointment - but you also may know that I've tried to be an agent of change wherever I've been... with varying degrees of success. Breean represents that much needed change in the Prosecutor's Office (to me) ... a place I consider to be the hub of our CJ community.
All my best ...
It is a sad indictment on ESH, our CJ system and community that it continues to take headline cases like Philip Paul's to invest much needed time, attention and resources to the plight of the mentally ill. Paul's case and the subsequent changes in the law (2011) caused issues related to due process that err on the side of public safety, which most may agree with ... however THIS 14th Amendment lawsuit is also important to see to its' judicial end.
I'll be watching with interest to see how the Courts decide and hopefully deal with the warehousing of the mentally ill in confinement when many should be placed in residential treatment settings.
Interesting and not a surprise as many major markets no longer have a print newspaper. As for me - I still read the SR and Inlander online and enjoy the different approaches. The competition created by the Inlander and Ted has made the SR a more relevant newspaper.
Excellent and fair article - thanks Jacob! I have known and worked with Haskell whom I respect, but the "insider" history is not a plus in my opinion. Beggs also has my respect for standing (often alone) up for us all and against the establishment that has been ineffective to bring about true changes. Evidence based practices and Smart Justice are the key to real change and Beggs has demonstrated that he has already embraced them.
Breann Beggs has my vote.
