The Rev. D. Anthony Everett of Lexington who is a member of Kentucky’s Human Rights Commission comments on President Obama’s State of the Union speech as it relates to criminal justice reform.
“After watching President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address, I think that regardless of one’s political views all can agree that he has faced significant challenges during his seven years in office.
“Given the multitude of conflicts and the seemingly endless international- and domestic-policy issues that require his vigilant attention, I was pleased that he highlighted his desire to address criminal-justice reform this year.
“I think I was not alone.”
