  2. I think your faith in Kamala Harris as a reformer is misguided. Her office has steered clear of doing anything about the Orange county snitch scandal, and insisted on backing the verdict on the Baca case after a snitch and prosecutor perjured themselves until the 9th circuit promised them a smack down.

  3. She is the opposite of a reformer. She aggressively supports capital punishment, has nothing to say on indigent defense, and is on the wrong side of every major case in the state including Baca. She is just a prosecutor, and like many of her kind, a politically ambitious one. If this is the face of reform, things are far worse than I thought after the election.

  4. The two commentators above are absolutely correct in their assessments of Kamala Harris. She is anything but a criminal justice reformer and is grossly unqualified for a position in the U.S. Senate.
