  1. Elie Honig:

    At a minimum, this is overstep by the probation department. Probation's job is to protect the community, protect the probationer, and ensure the probationer doesn't flee. But it's far beyond the role of probation to limit speech in the name of policing whether its subjects are' glamorized' in the public eye.

  2. Robert Boland:

    It wasn't that he failed to appear or speak to the NFL, it was that he refused to give up phone records that were personal to him, i think that may be an overstep. There's a real possibility that this penalty will be reduced.

  3. Loretta Lynch:

    I think if you talk to people who live in communities that deal with these issues all the time, they will say to you that what these videos are showing us now is what people in many minority communities have been talking about for years, and what they've been describing for years, but they haven't been believed, they have been dismissed, mainly because people don't want to believe that law enforcement can overstep. And of course, it's not every law enforcement officer. But when it happens, the impact that it has, the gash that it leaves, in the web of trust that we need in order for everyone to feel safe, is tremendous. And so that's why these incidents resonate so deeply.
