Patti Hearst pardon

Patricia Hearst is the first person in American history to receive a commutation from one president and a pardon from another, author Jeffrey Toobin writes in his book, "American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst." Hearst had served 22 months of a seven year sentence in federal prison for bank robbery when President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence - sentence reductions are part of the presidential pardon power embedded in the U.S. Constitution. Later, Bill Clinton pardoned - that is, removed all punishment and restored her civil rights - Hearst. She was one of Clinton ...

Investigative journalism?

When the Washington Post puts its top investigative reporters on the beat of the distant youth of presidential candidates, there's no telling what student scandal they might uncover. In 2012, the Post devoted a 5,400-word, front-page article to breaking the news that at age 17, then-Republican nominee Mitt Romney's "pranks could go too far." He was accused of giving a classmate at Cranbrook School an involuntary haircut, and this was invested with deep meaning across his life.

It’s obit time in August

It took a long time, but every record must eventually get broken, and no one is happier about this one than me: Finally, a presidential campaign has had a worse August than we did in 1988. That year, Michael Dukakis came out of the convention with a lead a mile wide and an inch deep, only to turn his campaign plane around and head back to Massachusetts, where he spent August being governor while his lead disappeared.

Insanity once more: Clinton economic plan

Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, when in fact the results never change, is one definition of insanity. That goes for economics, too.

Jerry Brown & abuse of eminent domain

As mayor of Oakland in the 2000s, Jerry Brown supported redevelopment. Then he returned to the governor's office in 2011 and inherited a $25 billion budget shortfall. Feeling the squeeze, Brown saw an opportunity to make $1.7 billion by eliminating redevelopment agencies and shifted. He liked redevelopment as mayor, he explained to the League of California Cities, but also: "I didn't quite understand it. It seemed kind of magical. It was the money that you could spend on stuff that they wouldn't otherwise let you spend."

When suspect is armed black & the cop is black

After the death of a young black man by a Milwaukee police officer, riots, looting and fires followed. In one instance, as a gas station burned, people watching chanted, "Black power!" Local news reported that the 23-year-old suspect was not only armed but that he also defied orders to drop his gun. The Milwaukee police chief refused to identify the officer involved, but did say that he was "black." At one time, such a fact would suggest that racism and police brutality were not at play.

No need to police SF prosecutors for this case

San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi told The San Francisco Chronicle's Karen de Sa it was "positively medieval" for District Attorney George Gascon's office to charge LaSonya Wells for kidnapping after she and two men stole Supervisor Scott Wiener's iPhone 6 in December and accompanied him to an ATM so he could swap his phone for $200.

Are our children stats?

Last Thursday at the request of Supervisors, Moses Zapien, and Chuck Winn, I attended the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors Special Session on Education that was held at the San Joaquin County Office of Education's Wentworth Education Center (SJCOE) in Stockton. It was a public hearing, so I needed not an invitation, but I wouldn't have known about it, so I thank both Supervisors for personally inviting me.
