Dear U.S. District Judge Birotte Jr.,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and social justice. In these subjects I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. U.S. District Birotte Jr., the main reason I’m writing you a letter to explain how I find your work when you served as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California and in your current role as U.S. District Judge to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California from 2010-2014, I liked on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights including working with President Obama by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practiced discrimination or violated Civil Rights Acts. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, pushing for funds for DNA testing including forensic science to help reduce sending an innocent person to jail while help solve cases efficiently, working to expand law enforcement resources to help victims of domestic violence or victims of crime get help on their trauma, and advocating for the need for the need to reduce racial profiling to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed is common sense for criminal justice reform. Another thing that I liked about your work as U.S. Attorney was how you prosecuted public officials that were corrupt or accepted illegal bribes, went after companies or industries that illegally polluted the environment including water resources to help protect the environment while protect public health, and went after financial institutions including health insurance companies that committed fraud. In April 2014, I liked on how you accepted President Obama to nominate you to serve on the United States District Court for the Central District of California to help improve the criminal justice system. In your current role as U.S. District Judge, I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of Civil Rights, push for criminal justice reform, and protect basic fundamental civil liberties like the fourth amendment to protect people from unreasonable searches.
U.S. District Judge Birotte Jr., I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California and as current U.S. District Judge gives me motivation to learn history and social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference for the judicial system. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support Civil Rights and push for criminal justice reform. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history with social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job on making a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to push for common sense ideas.
