I’m a big fan of Judge Dredd comics. The dystopian, post-apocalyptic future that Judge Dredd inhabits renders him simultaneously both hero and villain, as the same Judge/Cop hybrid who takes down dangerous criminals who prey on innocent citizens also often turns the innocent into criminals themselves.
Thus, you will often see Judge Dredd take down an armed mugger, only to arrest the victim of the mugging for incitement. After all, the victim was wearing expensive jewelry in a bad neighborhood at night! That makes him responsible!
We would like to think that in our more justice-minded society, we are above such victim-blaming, if not informally than at least under our body of criminal law. Alas, a forthcoming proposal by Councilman James Gray harkens more towards the world of Dredd than to loftier ideals.

In the summer of 1987, Felicia Kahn offered several younger activists a ride to the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta to campaign against the reelection of George H.W. Bush. She wanted to ensure these younger women understood their voices were necessary to help bring change. Almost 30 years later Kahn is still speaking out – this time to support the presidential candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton. “Hillary has earned the votes of women,” Kahn said.
