Mister Gore, two questions...

Can you explain why every single judicial district is now allowing strong, solid felony cases to be bragained down to misdemeanor pleas? Second, can you explain why we see so many convicted felons receiving probation or suspended sentences for convictions obtained subsequent to an earlier prison sentence? Since common law emerged, we have always increased sentences for subsequent convictions, as it proves that the defendent has no intention of modifying his or her behavior. Yet every day, I see people who have been in prison previously being arrested and convicted again, and they receive a suspended sentence. I understand the practical realities of prison capacity, but both of these are making society a far more dangerous place to live.
