Pass Sen. Webb’s Criminal Justice Reform Bill NOW!


Only in the "wounded sea slug" Senate (to quote our old pal Felix Macacawitz) could an almost totally noncontroversial proposal like Jim Webb's National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2011 not be on a fast track to passage and signature into law. Meanwhile, our criminal "justice" system continues to fester in injustice, inefficiency, and inequity. Why is this being allowed to continue day after day, month after month, year after year? There's absolutely no excuse. Pass Sen. Webb's criminal justice reform bill NOW and let's start fixing a system that's clearly broken. Is that really too much to ask?!?

P.S. Thanks to Sen. Webb for not giving up on this, for stubbornly pushing forward despite massive inertia and other obstacles standing in his way. THIS is the type of initiative and perseverance that makes me proud to have "drafted" Webb in 2006, I commend him for it.
