Dexter says, "We should take every possible step to insure justice at all levels of the system. This is especially true in capital cases where ambitious prosecutors may suppress exculpatory evidence to gain conviction."
Dexter says, "But I would have worked to make sure that the qualifying crimes were serious. Too often we read that the "third strike" is a petty theft. Three _violent_ crimes and you're out. And if they're that violent, three chances may be two too many."
Dexter says, "Politicians should not try to interfere with the civil justice system."
