Dear Attorney Olson,

My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, public policy, social justice, and the criminal justice system.  In these main subjects, I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be strong to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to improve people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.  Attorney Olson, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho to be very inspiring to me.

In 2010, I was very proud on how you accepted President Obama to serve as U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho to help him make a great difference for our country.  On Civil Rights, I liked on how you advocated for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuted people who committed hate-crimes to help protect minorities including women and people with disabilities from being targeted, and work with law enforcement to find ways to reduce racial profiling to help protect minorities’ rights.  Another thing that I liked about your role as U.S. Attorney was on how you combated against illegal weapon sales, prosecuted health insurance companies that committed fraud, expanded treatment programs to help victims of crime or people who used drugs get the care they need, and pushed for educational awareness about the need to reduce gun violence including how to protect people from fraud activities.  Also I liked on how you used your role as U.S. Attorney to work with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to work with Native American tribal communities to help train police officers to combat against crime, push for programs to help Native American youth from turning to crime, and expand programs to help protect Native Americans who are victims of crime get protection.

Attorney Wilson, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Your role as U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho motivates me to continue my interest in learning history including public policy. My future goal is to someday use what I learn from these subjects is to push for common sense ideas or teach people about the need to make Civil Rights stronger and have criminal justice reform to protect people’s rights while combating against crime.

I strongly believe that you made a great difference for our country and the criminal justice system. I’m very proud on how you worked with President Obama and law enforcement agencies to find ways to reduce crime while protect people’s rights.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and continue my interest in learning different subjects especially history with public policy.  I was wondering if you could please share what it was like bing U.S. Attorney along with explain your favorite achievements.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference for our country, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue to advocate for criminal justice reform.
