Why is truth in sentencing good enough for the citizens of TX, AK, and WI…but NOT for the citizens of Nebraska?


Three noted politicians -Sara Palin from Alaska, Ted Cruz from Texas, and Scott Walker from Wisconsin – have weighed in on the race for Nebraska Governor.

The Juvenile Justice System. From the perspective of a street cop.



An anonymous Patrol Officer


The young offender in question just turned 16 earlier this year.

He began his criminal career in 2008, with an assault. He was given diversion.

He somehow managed to avoid arrests until 2012 when he was charged with yet another assault.

Two weeks after the assault arrest, he was arrested yet again for unlawful occupancy (being a passenger in a stolen car) and was placed on juvenile probation.

The Juvenile Probation order requires him to attend school.

Now begins the young offender’s “break out year” of 2013.

In February, Christensen pled guilty, apparently in exchange for the weapon charge being dropped.

The two remaining charges – Attempted 2nd Degree Sexual Assault and 1st Degree False Imprisonment – each only carry a maximum of 5 years for each conviction.

So in our last post about the Gov’s veto of pay raises for Probation Officers, loyal reader Bob Peabody responded:

“Huge mistake by the governor! Why is it that we can’t get our elected officials to focus on real issues rather than on fountains and mountain lions.”
