The United States has 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of its prisoners. This is not because we are more evil than any other country on earth, it is because our judiciary and law enforcement operate with impunity. Drunk with power, they routinely ignore due process and deliver excessively harsh sentences. In many cases, totally innocent people are jalied – tearing apart families and ruining lives.
An Office of the Ombudsman will make our judiciary and law enforcement accountable for their actions. It will provide recourse for people whose rights have been violated.
