About Tina Trent
I was raised in upstate New York and spent twenty-five years bouncing between Florida and Georgia. I have experience in journalism, teaching, refugee services, non-profit administration, lobbying, and crime victim advocacy, and a bunch of other, happier jobs. I am a researcher for Cliff Kincaid’s Soros Files, and I am available to speak on George Soros’ campaign to undermine America — and especially its justice system. Contact the e-mail above to arrange public speaking events.
I went to New College of Florida and hold a PhD. from the Institute for Women’s Studies at Emory University, where I worked under the conservative scholar Elizabeth Fox-Genovese and moved, politically, to the right. If you are interested in my take on hate crime laws (against them), the excessive claims about the prevalence of wrongful convictions, or the media’s shameful legacy of supporting criminals and attacking crime victims, here is a link to my dissertation: Forgetting Rape: Sexual Violence and Social Justice in America.
Why I Started This Blog
Over the same fifty years, the mainstream media made the crime problem worse. Many journalists romanticize criminals, attack cops, and help hide the damage that criminal behavior wreaks in threatened communities.
Biased reporting on law enforcement, sentencing, and the positive effects of recent legal reforms has left the public in the dark about the working of our justice system.
Academic criminologists also side with offenders too often. The predominant theory of crime in academia is the “social roots theory,” which displaces all responsibility for criminal acts from the criminal onto society itself.
Belief in the “social roots theory” leads to leniency in sentencing and imprisonment. Thanks to the popularity of this theory among important opinion-makers, even prolific and violent criminals have had little to fear from criminal justice system for most of the last fifty years.
Even as the body count became unbearably high in urban neighborhoods, intellectuals and journalists refused to deviate from the view that criminals are essentially victims who need understanding and compassion, not correction and deterrence. This viewpoint is now so predominant that the mere suggestion that criminals deserve and even benefit from incarceration is greeted with horror and disbelief.
