Seeking on-the-scene reports from the USSC regional hearing in California

Though my cynical, snarky side is inclinded to say that California is the wrong state in which to hope to find sentencing wisdom, my hopeful pleasant side is convinced that US Sentencing Commission will get lots of great insights and input over the next two days at its public hearing taking starting tomorrow morning at Stanford Law School.  This official press release reports on the basics of this important event, and I noted in this recent post that the USSC is asking all the right questions about the past, present and possible future of the federal sentencing system. 

This link provides the agenda and the list of impressive persons scheduled to testify at the USSC hearing, and I am hopeful that the Commission will provide additional links to submitted written testimony at some point.  In the meantime, I am eager to get any and all on-the-scene reports from the USSC regional hearing from anyone who is in attendance.

No "View from the Emergency Room," the murder rate has been reduced by advances in trauma care. Gory pictures should be forced on this heartless, criminal lover, lawyer rent seeking elite.
