Rafael Mangual joins Seth Barron to discuss the disturbing leftward trend among urban prosecutors in major cities and the consequences of undoing the crime-fighting revolution of the 1990s.

    Very timely with the Jussie Smollet situation (I just hate that I know how to correctly spell his name!).  Does anybody else feel like this is the equivalent to the anti-vaccer view?  The herd has been protecting us for years but we’re going to make it better.
