The justice system in the United States does not move "swiftly". It takes years to make it through the appeal process to have even a portion of a case overturned. It takes years to make it to the Supreme Court of the United States and then years longer to change policy. It is taking a very long time to undo the harm of harsh criminal justice policy and return to reasonable practices.
We have 48 young men and women in Colorado serving the sentence of Life Without The Possibility of Parole, something the US Supreme Court calls cruel and unusual punishment. We have 2000 young men and women in this state serving sentences longer than 40 years for criminal violations that happened while they were kids. The fate of these men and woman and the reputation of Colorado is at stake. And we are STILL holding our breath.....while the young men and women grow up, get older.....in prison.
