Debate: Three Strikes Law, Success or Failure? #484

January 14, 20072 Comments

Los Angeles, CA. The Full Disclosure NetworkT (FDN) presents a seven minute Internet Video, on demand, 24/7, with former California Assemblyman Bill Jones, the Legislative author of the Three Strikes Law along with law enforcement critics of the law.

Those appearing in the program with Bill Jones are:

  • L. A. County Sheriff Leroy Baca
  • LAPD Chief William Bratton
  • L. A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley
  • L. A. Special Assistant District Attorney Anthony Patchett (ret)

According to Bill Jones the Three Strikes Law can be measured by these successes:

  • 50 percent drop in crime since 1994 when law was enacted
  • Exodus of Parolees to other states
  • Billions of dollars saved by deterring crime
  • Reduction in projected prison population
  • Eliminated plea bargaining


Objections raised by law enforcement critics:

  • Supervised Judges could do better without the Three Strikes Law..Chief Wm. Bratton
  • Don’t want grandpas going to jail for stealing bread….Sheriff Leroy Baca
  • Abuse of Penal Code 422 is coercive …Anthony Patchett
  • We don’t prosecute less serious crimes as Third Strike…..D.A. Steve Cooley
