Speaking of lies, there’s no shortage of them in an election year, but if you’re looking for a constructive way to sound off to the presidential candidates, here’s one.
The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has sent each of the four candidates—Clinton, Trump, Johnson, and Stein—a questionnaire with fifteen questions about their views on the criminal-justice system.
The NACDL has created a website for the public to receive the candidates’ answers and pose their own questions. The website lists all fifteen questions, invites you to say which three are most important to you, and allows you to submit your own question for the candidates.
There’s also a short but compelling video on the Sixth Amendment and why it matters so much. It features interviews with a prosecutor, a retired police detective, a defense attorney, and former criminal defendants.
