    The plea bargaining system is one of the biggest injustices in America today.

    It should be scrapped.

    If prosecutors wish to bring charges, then they should do so, based on the evidence they have. They might be minded to bring only the charges they feel confident will succeed, especially if their jobs depended on at least a 50% success rate.

    But the real problem are the extraordinarily harsh sentences, and the racial disparities.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
