@DR_ILL @johnennis You’re conflating areas within her job description (such as whether or not to support seeking the death penalty and how to handle drug cases she was presented with) with changing laws.

She ran on using her DA discretion to avoid seeking the death penalty. She just kept her word.
@DR_ILL @johnennis The equivalent question in regards to marijuana would be “do you support hard penalties for marijuana?” because that is an area where her office had similar discretion as it did regarding the death penalty. And notice she was noting the ethical restriction in discussing..:
@DR_ILL @johnennis ... the death penalty in regards to pending cases, even within the video I linked to.

But in regards to professional discretion, not changing legislation, on both topics she was consistent: she used her power to curb the use of excessive penalties.
@DR_ILL @johnennis You are free to interpret the fact pattern as you see fit. I’ve presented my own interpretation. If you want further commentary it will have to wait for my next Medium post - I don’t get paid for my time on here and my fiancée and I are having dinner soon. Happy researching!
