Debra is a strong conservative and a brave one to reside in San Francisco. The point of this column, which is extremely well written by the way, is just what it seems. Even those of us who are strong supporters of the police, the death penalty and harsh justice for those who deserve are capable of understanding when the law goes too far. Debra is analytical and clear-eyed, tough but fair ... and, she has a heart. That's still possible for hardcore conservatives.
