What is Community Justice? —n+1 » Articles “Existing options for criminal justice participation focus too heavily on the decorum of deliberation.”
America’s criminal justice system is antidemocratic in at least three distinct senses. First, the system is run and maintained by privileged insiders: police, prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges. There is little transparency, participation, or day-to-day accountability in today’s police precincts and criminal courthouses, and the result is that formal communal input into everyday justice has all but disappeared. This is especially true in the world of plea bargaining, in which fewer than 5 percent of criminal cases end in a trial of any kind. Second, even for the very few ways in which ordinary citizens do participate in criminal justice, the unequal distribution of political power means that the resulting criminal laws and enforcement are rarely responsive to the interests of the poor populations of color most likely to come into contact with the system. The mass incarceration and supervision of poor communities of color only exacerbate these political inequalities: many of the people affected by mass incarceration are barred from voting, and their neighborhoods experience a reduction in political participation and resources. And third, when marginalized populations do participate in democratic processes, their participation is often muted by those processes.

Vionville: Der G20 in Hamburg aus Sicht eines Polizisten
Der G20-Gipfel und der Einsatz der Polizei, soweit ich ihn bewerte

Neben meiner hauptamtlichen Beschäftigung arbeite ich nun bereits im zwölften Jahr auch als Konfliktmanager der Polizei Berlin. Im Frühjahr 2006 angefangen im Anti-Konflikt-Team (AKT), mittlerweile umbenannt in Kommunikationsteam (KMT).

Im Zusammenhang mit dem G20-Gipfel - wie übrigens auch bereits zur "Generalprobe", dem OSZE-Gipfel im Dezember letzten Jahres - hat die Polizei Hamburg neben einer großen Zahl an Bereitschaftspolizei, Spezialeinheiten, Wasserschutz und Verkehrskräften auch Kriminalbeamte sowie Mitarbeiter von Kommunikationseinheiten zur Unterstützung angefordert.

So kam es, dass ich als einer von 30 Berliner KMT-Beamten am Dienstag, 4. Juli, morgens in die Hansestadt aufbrach.

Was sich in den kommenden Tagen in dieser schönen Stadt abspielte, war Gegenstand der weltweiten Medienberichterstattung. Insbesondere die bereits im Vorfeld kontrovers und mit mehrfacher Anrufung von Gerichten durchgespielte Diskussion um Übernachtungscamps für Protestler führte meines Erachtens völlig erwartungsgemäß zu einer Zuspitzung der Lage und gegen Mitte/Ende der Woche dann zu einem kompletten Kippen der Situation.
