Redic hosts ‘Crime and Punishment’ workshop

Says police intervention may have saved her life

Ericka Redic will be hosting “Crime & Punishment” the Keep Vermont Safe workshop and panel, discussing the current state of public safety in Vermont, Friday, September 9 at Burlington’s City Hall.

The gathering offers a particular focus on identifying impediments around policing, prosecuting and possible legislative action.

Speakers include Michael Hall, Executive Director Vermont Police Coalition, Brady Toensing, Former Senior Counsel United States Department of Justice, and Christina Nolan, Former United States Attorney for the District of Vermont.

Redic’s personal experience of 13 years in recovery from substance abuse, started with police intervention and it fuels her passion for criminal justice reform. “If I had not been held accountable for my actions, I’m not sure I would still be alive today. I regained agency over my life and my choices and I believe it’s possible for more people to have that same experience.”

“It’s all too clear that the defund the police movement was a terrible experiment in public policy. Sadly, my Democrat opponent Becca Balint stands by this position, even with the rise in violent crime here in Vermont and around the country.”

This workshop is free and open to the public, and will be held in Contois Auditorium, Burlington City Hall, 149 Church Street, Burlington, Vermont from 6 PM to 8 PM.

  1. Erica is GREAT! It’s just that the defund the police policy wasn’t a “terrible” policy – it was and is a highly successful policy for the political party (Progressive democrats) who purposely wanted to create more fear & chaos & a disturbed style of “equality” from it, as they did with Covid, in order to lead even more people over the cliff into socialism and Communism and Marxism.

    We now have a large segment of VT who are addicted to drugs rendering them dysfunctional, more homeless and unemployed who are reliant upon VT social services & unemployment, etc.

    It’s a means to an end, Erica – it was never meant to be a viable policy. It’s simply directly out of the “Rules for Radicals” playbook. Same with legalized drugs. Same with legalized prostitution. Plus? Extra $$$ for these rats to boot!

    Ask David Zuckerman……perhaps he was once a Boy Scout and will be obliged to tell you the truth about all this!

  2. Silly question: Aren’t libertarians in favor of things like the legalization of drugs (hard and soft), prostitution, etc?

    Also against the death penalty, and any form of professional licensure – including for doctors, dentists, etc.

    Here’s the Libertarian Party platform for reference:

    I fear that Ms. Redic is less of a Libertarian and more a Republican that lost a primary!
