Publish AG Holder's daily schedule online

I've seen other government officials do this, and it seems like a good way to show the taxpayer what the principal (Attorney General) is doing on the job. You could also link public calendar items (speeches, ceremonies, etc) to the event page, which would provide more detailed information and allow interested citizens to RSVP or plan to attend.

You gotta be kidding me...

"What kinds of prizes/contests should we consider to attract others in working with us?" Are you serious???? Now the Justice Department is going to start offering "prizes/contests" to "attract others in working with us"???? Egads, I knew this country was in trouble, but idiotic ideas like that makes me think we are in deeper trouble that I can even imagine. Besides, the JD is already handing out "pizes", by refusing... more »

Stop censoring commentary.

You are exposing yourself as just a propaganda tool by only allowing comments that tell you what you want to hear. (And what you want your readers to see).

 

In one night, you have destroyed your credibility. Not exactly a stellar manner in which to market the idea of transparency.

End Abuse of the "State Secrets" doctrine

Legislation has already been introduced that would go a long way in increasing transparency, and in returning the Balance and Separation of powers between the branches of our government. It used to be that Courts, off the record, evaluated whether evidence constituted a "state secret" that prevented it from being given in a trial. The last 8+ years, however, "state secret" has been used to keep a trial from happening... more »

Online Public Access to Victims Complaints and The Responses

I would like to see a method that would allow public oversight concerning law enforcement and DOJ responses to formal complaints about criminal activity/victimization. Separately we could press for the inclusion of organized stalking, or stalking by three or more perpetrators as a distinct category. Ideally, I would like to see an ONLINE daily or weekly log accessible to the public, showing all the different categories... more »

No more "lost" pedophiles - with a cost effective solution

It's common knowledge that police are generally only able to find a percentage of an area's pedophiles to question when a child goes missing. The manpower and lost time is very costly when trying to locate them. To make location instantaneous is very possible, cost-effective, and could also prevent recidivism and protect children from future victimization. A list of an areas known pedophiles along with their current location... more »

Protect every citizens right to freedom of speech

There has developed an obvious disconnect between the government and the people. The people that are governed are the body that should have a voice in the way that our country is run. Large corporations and insurance companies have way too much power and with the big banks just do whatever they want. They are not above the law. This administration has the hopes of an entire country to make the changes. There are so many... more »

DOJ: Openness About Organized Stalking is Needed

I am starting this new openness idea because another thread here has a confusing title. The other thread is titled "Enforce Existing Laws." Organized stalking (OS) is the commission of acts similar to single stalker stalking, but by groups organized to carry out such acts. Organized stalking can include some through wall electronic harassment and surveillance using ordinary, not classified technologies which are available... more »

counterintelligence program

If we are serious about having a full, robust program of counterintelligence (not just counterespionage), it seems to me we need an agency or at least a division or branch devoted to countering intelligence threats. To do this, some basic elements would have to unite the following in one place: 1) True expertise on opposing intelligence institutions. For each institution, nation, or transnational group that is or could... more »

National Crime GIS/Database

I would like to see a national Crime GIS database. A national database, similar to the Uniform Crime Reports but in a real time GIS accessible system. Police departments around the country would enter criminal activity of the day into the system. And residents could access that information via a web portal and see where, when and what crimes were taking place. This would be different from the UCR in that not convictions... more »

A HUGE Need for a better monitoring of sex offenders

We need one huge database that actually monitors ALL sex offenders in the nation. The DOJ national website is ok but does not update the site frequently enough. Nor do the states monitor the offenders closely. There needs to be more of a commitment towards keeping these perverts away from our children and loved ones!!!! We have been trying to track some of these creeps and we have been tracking from one state to the other... more »
