He wanted "justice reform," and he got it good and hard. Sounds like justice to me.

His work with DC Justice Lab perhaps made sense given his background. Having experienced life in prison himself, perhaps he felt that criminal just reform should be prioritized. And there have no doubt been many people locked up for drug crimes who would have benefitted from an opportunity to receive addiction treatment as opposed to a lengthy sentence.

Okay, I can go with that
but....

But the “reforms” that the group was pushing went much further than that. Under these new rules, it will be virtually impossible to keep suspects behind bars for anything less than second-degree murder. We have no way of knowing if the person who shot Blowe was a member of a gang or had some other criminal record, but the crime rates in the District of Columbia suggest that it’s certainly a possibility
.

We are so screwed.

He and I have different ideas of what Justice means.  I wonder if he changed his mind before he died?

Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".
