JUSTICE IS SERVED Former LASD Sheriff Lee Baca was the head of the department that engaged in multiple acts of violation of law and policy as related to the case of Mitrice Richardson and I am sure many other cases of injustice that have been swept under the rug and unnoticed. While he is not directly going to jail for what he allowed to occur to Mitrice Richardson, the fact that justice has been served in this current legal situation brings about some faith in the justice system. My hope is that current Sheriff Jim McDonnell will take a...

Your life has touched many and the lessons learned from...

CLASS-BASED SEGREGATION Fine piece, Mr. Hutchinson (“Truly Sick,” March 16). We cannot be reminded often enough that, in addition to Medicaid, it has been the Republican priority to either privatize or eliminate altogether Medicare, Social Security and public education since their inception. (Regarding public education, that goal is being realized in the form of tax revenue intended for public education increasingly being diverted to charter schools: outsourced, privatized, corporate entities, often religious, often with disproportionately excessive executive pay.) But my question is, how is Medicaid not institutionalized health care apartheid? Is there another developed nation on the planet that...
