I realize that Sandy, but I wanted to be clear what I believe we are fighting against. There are many times where I feel advocates for reform are asking for too much, such as removal of probation/parole restrictions that are legitimate forms of punishment.
I feel that if we tailor our advocacy to the issues that are actually effective at 1) protecting victims and 2) restoring unconstitutionally removed rights, then we will fight the right battles.
I am a strong proponent of offering up alternative solutions to lawmakers that passes true constitutional muster and potentially satisfies the public’s need for the feeling of safety. Without alternative solutions, we may just come off to them as a bunch of whiners.
