Fix Our Broken Criminal Justice System

from Bernie Sanders:

During a Senate floor speech today on criminal justice reform, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) reiterated his long-standing opposition to the death penalty and called for marijuana to be removed from a list of drugs outlawed by the federal government.

    To be clear, I don’t believe marijuana use/possession qualifies as a crime.

    But if I’m hearing him correctly up to 5 minutes in, he’s saying “non-violent criminals” shouldn’t have a permanent record because it “destroys their lives”. Sounds to me like The Bern is making the case for the banksters and crony politicians etc. etc. to have a clean slate one day, while slipping the concept in under the radar on the back of the marijuana issue. Hmm.

    And he points out the incarceration disparity between blacks and whites (4:1), but uses the example of “over-policed black neighborhoods” by citing an example of a white kid in an upper middle class area of NY compared to a black kid in Chicago. Apples and oranges much? There’s a reason why black neighborhoods in Chicago are “overpoliced”, Berrrrrrrrrrn.

    5 minutes of BS was enough for me.
