A pretty good interview of one of the “outsider” (i.e. non-forensic) scientists on the National Commission on Forensics that is (was) on the Trump/Session hit list for non-renewal.
He clearly speaks about the challenges to a “meeting of the minds” between the very diverse members of this now defunct forensic commission which has been derided as pointless by the guy who runs the USDOJ. His minion says they plan to be “open to all options.” Whatever that means in the lexicon of the alt-right.

“New York’s smart criminal justice reform sets example for Sessions to follow”
But this is happening in Oklahoma and Texas:
Oklahoma criminal justice reform gets rocky reception in house commitee.
Outlook uncertain for bill to raise age for criminal responsibility.
