Torture is a federal crime, and those who authorized it and engaged in it must be criminally prosecuted: for comment on the Senate report on CIA torture, we turn to ERWIN CHEMERINSKY — he’s dean of the UCI Law School and author of The Case Against the Supreme Court. He wrote about prosecuting the torturers for the LA Times.
Plus: Labor’s new reality: it’s easier to raise wages for 100,000 than to unionize 4,000. HAROLD MEYERSON suggests a strategy for building a low-wage workers’ organization in LA County that isn’t a union, because, much as we’d like to, we can’t get there (unions) from here (America, 2014). Harold is a columnist for the Washington Post op-ed page and editor-at-large of The American Prospect.
