"It's entirely inappropriate,".....Jan Platt

Florida's Cruel And Unusual Punishment

Kenneth Young
More than six months after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Florida's practice of sending juveniles to prison for the rest of their lives for non-murder crimes was unconstitutional, not a single former juvenile sentenced in such cases has found much relief.

In Crist's last Clemency Board meeting, set for Dec. 9, lawyers are asking state officials to consider the case of Kenneth Young, who is representative of a group of 116 Florida juveniles who were sentenced to spend the rest of their lives in prison for non-murder crimes. So far, that appeal has gone nowhere.

Crist's is busy attracting national headlines for his pledge to pardon Jim Morrison, who has been dead for 39 years.

"I didn't think when I gave Kenneth Young life that it was life without parole. At this point, I'd sign a clemency petition for him to be considered for release."......J. Rogers Padgett

Florida has sentenced more juveniles to such sentences than all other states combined.

Wage Theft in Florida

This Is Rudy’s Story
Rudy Xutuc is a gardener and landscaper who worked at a nursery in Homestead. His boss started delaying his weekly salary little by little, until he finally stopped paying. When the total amount owed reached $4,800, Rudy asked for the money he earned with hard work, but the employer refused to pay. Between September 2008 until March 2010, there has been a total loss of close to $4 million in unpaid wages!

Silly People In St. Pete

Why Was Mike Williams Arrested?

Have A Beer, Go To Jail!
His Blood Alcohol level was under the legal limit of .08. There is a great difference between a person who is drunk, and a person who drinks. It seems that it is not enough to arrest drunk drivers, it is now the goal of Police to arrest anyone who drives with so much as a drink.
I am curious to see what the Bucs and NFL dictator Roger Goodell will do. Mr. Williams should sue the hell out of the agency involved.
