The Marquette professor who dared to speak out

Universities are supposed to be a place of exploration, open-mindedness and rigorous debate. But at Marquette University in Milwaukee, speaking up can get you banned from campus and fired from your job.

Colorado Death Penalty Unconstitutional, Says Attorneys, Scholars
Huffington Post - about 4 years
From The Colorado Independent's Scot Kersgaard. Colorado’s death penalty is not only massively expensive, critics say it is also unconstitutional because it is so randomly sought. A study released last year by DU Law Professors Justin Marceau and Sam Kamin showed that from 1999 to 2010, 92 percent of 544 Colorado murders had at least one of the aggravating factors that need to be present for a defendant to be eligible for death, yet the death penalty was sought in only five of those cases — less than 1 percent. The study was commissioned by Edward Montour’s legal defense team, and thus paid for by the state. Montour, already serving life without parole, is fighting to stay off of death row for a murder committed in prison. One of his attorneys, David Lane, argues that while the Supreme Court has instructed states to narrow the field of who qualifies for the death penalty, Colorado has done the opposite, creating so many aggravating factors that death could be sough ...

Recall Rematch: Record Voter Turnout Expected in High-Stakes Election
Caldenonia Patch - over 4 years
This Tuesday will not only mark Wisconsin's first gubernatorial recall election, it will also mark the end of the most high-profile, expensive and politically-polarizing race this state has ever seen. Ever since Gov. Scott Walker unveiled his plans to eliminate most of the collective bargaining rights of public sector employees, the nation has turned its eyes to Wisconsin, of all places, as thousands protested on the Capitol, 14 Democratic senators left the state to stop the bill, recall elections were waged against six Republican senators and two Democratic senators, the results of a highly-partisan judicial election between Joanne Kloppenburg and David Prosser were reversed and recounted, and more than 900,000 signatures were collected to trigger this recall election – the ultimate "referendum on Scott Walker." While the media has tried to handicap the election by analyzing television ads, pointing to various polls, dissecting the involvement of the national parties, comparing ...

Union Fail: Why Is Wisconsin Even Having a Recall Election?
Big Government - almost 5 years
MADISON, Wis. - We thought the Wisconsin recall was all about restoring collective bargaining for public employees. But the Democrats of Wisconsin obviously don't agree. They made that clear Tuesday when they overwhelmingly rejected Kathleen Falk, the anointed candidate of the public sector unions, in the Democratic gubernatorial primary election. Falk lost by nearly 25 percentage points to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who is lukewarm at best on the collective bargaining issue. That leads us to pose a logical question - Why is the state even bothering with a recall election? It's becoming clear that the majority of Wisconsin residents have no burning desire to ditch Act 10, Gov. Scott Walker's landmark legislation limiting collective bargaining privileges for public employee unions, including teachers unions. They see schools and local governments saving millions of dollars at a time when they need it most, and they understand how that's more important than the desire of the ...

Democratic Primary Likely to Be Decided on Style Points, Strategies
Caldenonia Patch - almost 5 years
A comparison of leading Democratic candidates Kathleen Falk and Tom Barrett going into Tuesday’s recall primary shows their differences are more about style and political strategy than substance on the issues. Both campaigns have hammered against Gov. Scott Walker’s cuts to public education and vowed to restore school spending. Both have focused on the need for job creation and derided Walker’s record on it. On public health matters, the economy and, yes, on collective bargaining for public workers, they are essentially on the same page over the long haul. Where Falk and Barrett differ is not as much in their ultimate policy aims, but in their approaches. Falk entered the race in mid-January, almost the instant the deadline for turning in recall signatures passed. She quickly declared her intention to fully restore all aspects of public collective bargaining that Republicans had repealed. She sought and won the endorsements or recommendations of a slew of labor organizat ...

Lemont Patch - almost 5 years
Editor's Note: This article was created by aggregating news articles from Illinois Statehouse News that were written by various Illinois Statehouse News reporters. Walker Talks Unions, Budgets in Illinois Visit Ahead of Recall SPRINGFIELD — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday visited a state he has used as a political punching bag to campaign ahead of a historic recall election in the Badger State. Walker spoke to a crowd of about 300 lobbyists, lawmakers and members of the business community at thePresident Abraham Lincoln Hotel and Conference Center.Walker’s speech was part of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and National Federation of Independent Business lobby day here. Walker’s visit comes less than two months before the embattled governor faces a recall election, spurred mostly by Act 10, a law passed during his administration that largely removes the ability of unions to use collective bargaining. Walker said payment for his visit came from his political war ch ...

Will the Real Candidates in the Recall Elections Please Stand Up?
Brookfield Patch - almost 5 years
Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a scruffy-haired 23-year-old political activist who used to serve pizza at the Children’s Museum in Madison until a few weeks ago, says he is not a "fake Republican." But he’s not a traditional Republican, either. Kohl-Riggs is running against Gov. Scott Walker in the Republican primary after he collected and turned in more than 2,200 signatures to the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board this week. If the GAB, which oversees elections in Wisconsin, votes to allow him on the ballot, Kohl-Riggs will be Walker's sole opponent in the May 8 primary. So, if he’s not a Democrat or traditional Republican, what political flag does Kohl-Riggs fly? He describes himself as a “progressive Republican,” following the political lines of former Wisconsin Sen. Robert "Fighting Bob" La Follette and Abraham Lincoln. Related: Patch columnist shares her views on GOP challenger And the reason Kohl-Riggs wants his name on the GOP ballot is because he wants to f ...

Cambridgeshire police launch Operation Twist
Banmoco - almost 5 years
Police have launched ‘Operation Twist’ in Cambridgeshire as a direct response to a worrying 200-plus burglaries that have been reported in specific corners of the rural country. Detectives assigned to Operation Twist believe that the burglaries are linked and that thieves are travelling to rural Cambridgeshire as they believe they can commit offences without detection. Amazingly, 115 burglaries have been called in around the Huntingdonshire area since last November, while South Cambridgeshire is not too far behind with 113. Jon McAdam, a Detective Inspector leading Cambridgeshire Police’s Operation Twist, was speaking at a media conference when he explained that, ever since November, rural villages in South Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire have been subjected to increased amounts of thefts, with investigators believing that each one of the crimes are linked. Operation Twist is to see increased patrols across rural villages while Cambridgeshire Police’s investigators carry out f ...
