A Prosector’s Vision For A Better Justice System


“[H]ow many of you, by the age of 25, had either acted up in school, went somewhere you were specifically told to stay out of, or drank alcohol before your legal age? How many of you shoplifted, tried an illegal drug or got into a physical fight — yes, even with a sibling? Now, how many of you ever spent one day in jail for any of those decisions? How many of you sitting here today think that you’re a danger to society or should be defined by those actions of youthful indiscretion?” Prosecutor Adam Foss challenges prosecutors and the public to look for better answers than incarceration to work for justice in our communities, focusing instead on rehabilitation, opportunity, and responsibility.
