Douglas Co has a long history of having an abusive judicial system. They have harbored some of the worst district attorneys in the state and even the nation. David Mc Dade was at one time considered one of the top 10 worst in the country. The courthouse is a daily chaotic dysfunctional disaster. Human beings shackled and held in holding tanks hoping that they will actually finnaly get a hearing.. DC District Attorneys are stacking charges and exaggerating evidence in order to stroke their ego with long jail sentences. Inmates are considered guilty until proven otherwise or until the finally break down and make a confession.. The "Sharp Program" was nothing more than videos about drug interventions and a way to drug test participants and return them to jail. The county spent 150 million dollars on a state of the art jail that needs to be filled in anyway possible.
Meanwhile, the crime rate continues to go up exponentially.Reform is a positive step forward but it has a long way to go to even reach a point or resonable and functional.
