I am observing how Obama and many in the Democrat party misrepresent themselves to the American people. There is so much information and disinformation and I hope to share the angles with like minded people.
WOW Ruth, you told her, didn't you! Great response. ---- firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > Dear Kelley, > Sherrilyn Ifill is a professor at the University Of Maryland school of Law. She has written an article advocating the release of all "non violent" drug offenders to reduce prison populations. She asserts that blacks and Latinos are unfairly burdened by being imprisoned for these crimes. (She is also a black woman.) Below is my response: > > Dear Ms. Ifill, I take exception to your assertion that drug offenders are non violent criminals. Every one who participates in the drug culture contributes to the violence associated with it.They also contribute to the thefts, robberies, and prostitution used to support their drug habits. They contribute to the murders of drug rip-offs, and territorial disputes. ERGO there is no such thing as a non-violent drug offender. If I buy product from a business, knowing that the profits of that business support terrorism, then I am PARTICIPATING IN THAT TERRORISM. Yes an inordinate number of blacks and Latinos are imprisoned. An inordinate number of blacks and Latinos participate in violent gangs and SHOULD be incarcerated. Yes education is cheaper than incarceration. However much of what youth needs to learn to be successful adults should be taught at home and in their communities. Accountability and responsibility and respect, need to be instilled while children are toddlers. The best and most effective way to reduce prison numbers is to have fewer offenders. Toward that end, communities must band together to raise the bar of expectations, reduce the numbers of unwanted children, and to care for the ones that are here. Government should extend and mandate public education through a 4 year college degree or advanced technical degree. Why do we tolerate allowing thousands to drop-out? It should NOT even be an option. Yes we have a long way to go, we should start at the beginning with toddlers, not at the end with street-wise, hardened criminals.
