Crime.Justice & America - Letters from the Publisher - Honoring Fallen Heroes of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department

"Better education means better justice. Better education means a higher standard for government to insure proper prosecution and incarceration. Better education means reduced recidivism, and in turn, less financial burden on society".

 
 Honoring Fallen Heroes of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department
 

Last month, I wrote about a heartwarming experience regarding our nation’s changing attitudes of who is, and who isn’t a true hero. The risks and perils that we face as a nation in one of our most trying times in history, and the difficult evolution of our own judicial system over the last 250+ years into the most advanced in human history, has brought us to respect and honor those who chose to serve.

            Unfortunately, in a recent conversation with one of the law enforcement professionals at the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department, we learned about another example of the ultimate price these everyday heroes could pay. In the performance of his duty, in his role as protector and defender of our freedoms, and in the obligation and responsibilities to enforce the laws of our state, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Deputy Stephen Sorensen was tragically killed August 2, 2003 east of Palmdale after he responded to a trespassing call. As I learned about the tragedy from another deputy, I could hear the respect in her voice as she described the slain deputy, and how he had always given above and beyond the call of duty. I realized at that moment that one of the highest honors received by these professionals was the respect and esteem from their peers. As our nation continues on the path across the world to insure our safety and way of life, we trust our homeland safety to these local professionals seen every day, and mostly taken for granted. After hearing the emotion in the voice of a law enforcement peer as she talked about Deputy Sorensen, Crime, Justice & America would like to honor the fallen heroes in the law enforcement community during the year 2003.

Here is an entertaining and informative interview with Wally Farrell, a premier criminal defense attorney in Riverside County, now deceased, who discussed the Death Penalty in California with Crime, Justice & America Talk Show Host Ray Hrdlicka.  Is it really a deterrent? Why represent defendants charged with this type of crime?  What is “special circumstances” in the crime?  Life without parole vs. the Death Penalty.  Why does this type of case last so long?  Is it a choice between Justice or a Political and Financial cost?  Does it demean life?
