Casey Foundation distorts juvenile arrest rates


  1. this piece reads exactly like Spare The Jail Spoil The Child written by Nigel Jaquiss of the Willamette Week. Funny thing is that you are quoted many times by Nigel in that article. What's really going on, Josh? Seems like you have a lot of influence over there. Either that, or your plagiarizing Mr. Jaquiss. Which is it, I wonder?

    1. As usual Mr. Luke, you're getting more than a little over-wrought. Your own experiences as a convicted violent felon seem to be coloring your view. In that particular article I think Nigel quotes me exactly ONCE in that May 6, 2014 article, focuseing far more (and appropriately) on Clackamas DA John Foote, retired Multnomah Deputy DA Chuck French, and defender of the current system, Scott Taylor.
