Below is a “response” that I wrote. It is the response I believe Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig should have given to discussions about racial inequality in our county’s legal system. Many have stepped up spontaneously to support it. You will find their names here as well.
Unfortunately, here is the response DA Reisig actually gave.
He was responding to these comments by Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson.
The Davis Enterprise will be publishing this alternate response in this Sunday’s issue. I look forward to collaborating with Ms. Olson, others currently working within our local legal system, community members, and my former colleagues in local government to undertake the analysis, investigations, reporting and oversight outlined in the letter. I hope you will join us.
