I have always avoided politics. But like Vic Vickers, I recently realized it was not okay for the injustices in our legal system to continue. I was furious with how bad and backward our Legal and law enforcement systems were. We are desperate for change and Vic will fight for what’s right.
In 2007 I was notified that my daughter, Bonnie Craig‘s, killer had been identified. Through news reports I learned how badly our Justice System is failing us. I don’t want any other family to go through the hell and delays my family and friends have gone through. I started with fighting to change Alaska Laws and we all were INCREDIBLY successful. Alaskan Lawmakers changed the laws in 12 days. Alaska now is one of 13 states to have a law in place to collect DNA from all persons arrested for a felony. In fact, Alaska is the only State in the nation that has set a time limit to process the DNA within 90 days. Due to current backlogs some DNAs are not processed for more than two years. In the United Kingdom they process DNA in 24 hours.
We need someone in the US Senate who will be respected; someone who will help to ensure that all DNAs are processed and we keep the criminals off the streets. Vic Vickers will fight for funding to get rid of DNA backlogs in all States and ensure DNAs are submitted to our National Database (CODIS). Our state is rich with, coffers overflowing, yet 5,000 samples sat there, backlogged, for over a year because they couldn’t find $30 per sample to process them. Vic Vickers will fight for the federal funding to get rid of the backlogs.
I have dedicated my life to Protecting our children and Vic Vickers is 100% behind protecting the children. Currently, law enforcement has the technology to identify Child Pornographers. Law enforcement knows of 600,000 locations in the US where people are downloading the most horrific crime scene videos. It’s videos of children being tortured and raped. The Department of Justice knows that at 30% of these locations they will find a child victim YET less than 2 % of these cases are investigated. Law enforcement isn’t given the tools and the funding. Vic Vickers will vote to change that and start Protecting our Children.
Vic Vickers will protect our children and help balance the scales of justice. He will support our Law Enforcement and make sure they get what they need to do the job right. Not only will he stop corruption; he’ll do what’s right for all Alaskans. Vote For Vic Vickers for US Senate!
