NASC Annual Conference as timely as ever

I am pleased to be able to highlight this year's National Association of Sentencing Commissions annual conference, which is held August 2-4, 2009 in Baltimore, Maryland.  This year's conference is titled "15 Years of NASC: Looking Back, Moving Forward," but the program reveals how timely and forward-looking the program is for today's times. Everyone can check out the full agenda and the outstanding group of speakers for this year's NASC event here at the conference website.

Prof. Berman: I am sure everyone would love to hear about the take home messages of that criminal lover convention you attended in New Orleans. Anything new in the world of criminal lover rent seeking? Any new, clever, lawyer ideas on new ways to "f" up crime victims?

All speakers depend on the nearly total lawyer enacted immunity of the criminal for their jobs. Not a single one advocates ending crime, or stopping the massive onslaught on our people by ultra-violent, vicious predators. As an owner of the law, I find the extreme bias of these rent seeking cult criminals appalling. This meeting has the validity of a KKK convention on racial equality. It is garbage. Nothing these criminal lovers can say has the slightest validity. Even the academics are lazy, worthless, government employees.

As a former member of the NASC executive committee, I have to confirm that everything Mr. Claus has said is completely true. Our sole mission is just to make sure that the American people suffer the massive onslaught of ultra-violent, vicious predators. I've always been surprised that we have been able to keep our work so secret until now, and hopefully Mr. Claus' insight and reporting will just be passed off as hyperbole and won't stop our evil from being perpetrated.

Mr. Connelly: You have a good sense of humor, and I understand your point. However, isn't job one to protect the public, the rest being immature, archaic purposes?

1) Do you believe 5 million violent, FBI Index are OK? This is not a sarcastic question, perhaps you do.

2) I request that all speakers disclose their crime victimization experiences. Their attitudes will be more realistic if any have been surrounded by four gang members, and thought they might die over an IPod.

3) If crime were to drop to 1% of what it is today, would or wouldn't people like you lose their jobs? At least be candid to yourself. You have an economic conflict of interest if crime were to end.

"Not a single one advocates ending crime, or stopping the massive onslaught on our people by ultra-violent, vicious predators."

Not a single one, S.C.? You might try reading that agenda again.

Looking back, I hope people will notice that crime dropped 40% after mandatory sentences percolated to the street level, starting in 1994.

Looking forward, I heard no criticism of the Supreme Court for reversing that achievement. I just heard judges complain about their powers being abrogated, when they have none but to obey the law.

As to the section on the future, I doubt any will be discussing the coming Scalia Bounce in criminality. They care more about kowtowing to the hierarchy of the criminal cult enterprise, than about their duty to protect the public.

An advocate for victims could straighten the lot out. But none has been invited.
