    When voters in Contra Costa County approved a new sales tax in last year’s election, they were promised a host of essential services in the ballot language: community health centers, better services for vulnerable populations and more money for emergency response. The county largely made good on that promise Tuesday, allocating about $104 million to an array of new programs centered around fire prevention, mental health and youth services, along with an expansion of the psychiatric emergency unit at the Martinez hospital. But praise for initiatives made possible by the new sales tax, Measure X, took a back seat at Tuesday’s meeting as the supervisors debated the community — and each other — over whether law enforcement should receive some of the new funding. After a chorus of pushback, the supervisors fell short of approving $6 million in tax revenue for additional Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office patrol in unincorporated areas, though it did give the department $2.5 million for new body-worn cameras. After a 4-1 vote in favor of body cameras, the board’s 3-2 vote for more sheriff patrol fell...

    The office of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis condemned the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) plans Tuesday to have the FBI coordinate with local law enforcement to deal with intimidation and threats to school board members. “Governor DeSantis condemns any attempt by the federal government to silence free speech. It is despicable and anti-American,” the statement said. Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the FBI to partner with leaders in each federal judicial district to discuss strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, and employees in an Oct. 4 memo. The National School Boards Association (NSBA) urged federal law enforcement to respond to intimidation and threats regarding school masking policies and critical race theory in a Sept. 29 letter. Attorney General Garland is weaponizing the DOJ by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation. Florida will defend the free speech rights of its citizens and will not allow federal agents to squelch dissent. — Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) October 5, 2021 “The [NSBA] letter ignores the fact that liberal activists who support CRT and forced...

    Two more senior aides to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton have been fired weeks after top deputies accused him of criminal wrongdoing — marking four such terminations in just a few weeks. David Maxwell, the agency’s director of law enforcement, and Mark Penley, the deputy attorney general for criminal justice, have been fired. Both had been on paid investigative leave for weeks in the wake of their roles vetting a complaint made by Nate Paul, a real estate investor and political donor to Paxton. Ian Prior, a political spokesman for Paxton, confirmed the moves on Monday. Paul accused federal and state authorities of wrongdoing related to a raid on his home and office in 2019. An internal email obtained by The Texas Tribune showed the complaints had been examined by senior aides, who found them meritless. Paxton has said he was concerned that his staff had not sufficiently vetted Paul’s allegations. Paxton ultimately hired an outside attorney to look into the matter, sparking a staff mutiny during which top aides accused Paxton of using the agency to serve Paul’s financial...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After 44 years in office, Broward State Attorney Mike Satz decided to leave the top prosecutor’s job earlier this year. With a record as being ‘tough on crime,’ Satz’s office had a high conviction rate, although some of those convictions have since been overturned. In November, Broward voters will choose a new state attorney who has an opportunity to put his stamp on law and order. Harold Pryor is the Democrat running for Broward state attorney. He beat out a crowded field of contenders in the August primary. Pryor initially worked for the state attorney’s office before going into private practice. “I asked myself was the world getting any better and it wasn’t so I decided to be the next state attorney,” said Pryor. “I’m the best person to initiate criminal justice reform while not compromising the safety of our communities,” he says. “My goal is to work with law enforcement to make them better officers. Also, weed out the bad apples and hold the bad accountable,” he says. He wants changes for how juvenile offenders are...
