"Advancing Justice: An Agenda for Human Dignity & Public Safety"

62043-5988c6b7f4018The title of this post is the title of this all-day event taking place next month (October 26) in Washington DC. The event is sponsored by the Charles Koch Institute and Charles Koch Foundation, and here is how this registration page briefly describes the event:

Criminal justice and policing reforms have made tremendous gains at both the state and federal level in the last several years.  However, the ongoing opioid crisis, questions around violent crime, and continued police militarization show us that there is still much to be done.

On Thursday, October 26, please join the Charles Koch Institute for a one-day conference in Washington, D.C. to identify the next set of criminal justice reform priorities, and showcase a broad coalition of policy makers, academics, think tanks, and community activists who've helped bring us this far.  Together, we are committed to supporting the best ideas and lending our voice to the national conversation for an advancement in human dignity and greater public safety. We hope you can join us.

I am honored to be one of the speakers at this event, and this speakers page details the impressive array of individuals who will be participating. I will be on a break-out panel titled "A Fight over Federalism: The Future of Marijuana Policy." Here are a few other panel titles that ought to be of interest to sentencing fans:

Not a single speaker cares about the interest of victims in not being victimized. That Crime Victims Institute female is feminist lawyer, bashing the patriarchal family, and a propagandist, attacking males as predators.

Let me guess, more therapy, more school, more social services, more publicly funded accommodations, more jobs for government make work, lazy, worthless government workers. All are total quackery.

This is a worthless left wing, hug a thug, love fest for the criminal.

Aren't you pro-crim, left wing ideologues getting bored? Why not invite a pro-victim advocate as a palate cleanser? Invite Bill Otis. He can talk that lawyer bullshit.

You do not want to invite an ordinary citizen like me. I will bring my black victim friends, and loose them on their mortal enemies.

Rent seekers and deniers do not argue in good faith. They understand only one thing.

You filthy lawyer traitors. You are suing the guy who stopped an armed robbery. The lawyer of the plaintiff should be hunted.
