Oppose The Privatization of Law Enforcement Services in Oakland (tags)
I am deeply concerned that private patrol operators in California may be effectively able to evade the obligations of public sector law enforcement outfits in the service of a government by the people for the people under the Constitution of the State of California and the Constitution of the United States of America. If a private law enforcement company commits a material breach of our state or federal constitutions, their insurance carrier will invariably pay a cash settlement to the victims and the private law enforcement company will be disbanded.

The Geneva Conventions: the core of international humanitarian law The Geneva Conventions and their Protocols are international treaties that contain the most important rules limiting the barbarity of war. They protect people who do not take part in the fighting (civilians, medics, aid workers) and those who can no longer fight (wounded, sick and shipwrecked troops, prisoners of war).

Bush, during his two terms as Texas governor, oversaw the executions of 152 people. If he’s a war criminal, and guilty of causing the deaths of captives at Guantanamo and elsewhere, it would be poetic justice for him to follow them on the long walk.
