Kamala Harris Proposes Massive Criminal Justice Reform; Here’s What It Includes

Interesting.

Published

A really big, important issue that we as Americans really don’t seem to be discussing enough right now is that of criminal justice reform. Our current justice system is a wreck and that’s putting it mildly.

Many of the things folks go to prison for are first offenses and of such a minor nature that the punishment almost seems to border on cruel and unusual. Those who should be tossed in the clink for their crimes — or receive the death penalty — seem to get off with a slap on the wrist.

Things are backwards and Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris seems to think she has the answers. Harris has proposed a rather sweeping criminal justice reform platform that includes legalization of marijuana.

via TheBlaze:

Harris said that she would strive to “End Mass Incarceration and Invest Resources into Evidence and Community-Based Programs that Reduce Crime and Help Build Safe and Healthy Communities.”

She said she would do this by legalizing marijuana, initiating sentencing reforms, ending money bail (which she said unfairly allows wealthy people to post bail while keeping poorer prisoners locked up), clearing the rape kit backlog (more than 100,000 rape kits are sitting untested across the country), and ending private prisons.

She also proposed placing a sales tax on marijuana and using the money to provide “services to individuals most adversely impacted by the War on Drugs.” In addition to prosecuting cases of marijuana use as California’s attorney general, Harris opposed marijuana legalisation when she was a district attorney in San Francisco.

In a tweet thread on Monday, Harris said her “plan will transform our country’s broken criminal justice system by ending mass incarceration, holding law enforcement accountable, ensuring those in the system are given dignity, and getting profit out of the equation.”

It’s not that much of a stretch to say that the war on drugs has been a huge failure. There’s more drug use than ever and prisons are overflowing with individuals who aren’t violent offenders, but individuals with drug addiction problems.

This might sound incredibly libertarian-ish, but the truth is, a lot of these folks shouldn’t be in prison. That should be reserved for violent offenders and those who absolutely need to be removed from society for the safety of others all around them.

What the exact solution to this problem is, I have no idea. I don’t think it’s a wise idea to legalize all drugs. However, something needs to be done differently and sentencing changes are definitely part of that.

Pelosi’s Letter to Dems Makes Clear It Is ‘Dangerous’ to Let Election Decide Who Will Be POTUS

Read that headline one more time…

Even for Nancy Pelosi, this is pretty bad. How dare she say something like this? Where does she find the stones? Oh, that’s right. She can say whatever she wants because the mainstream media will spin in her favor. Got it. All this does is reinforce the notion that President Trump never has, nor ever will, receive any semblance of credibility from the Democrat Party. These people are ruthless in their desire to destroy Trump’s life. At the end of the day, Trump was the right man for the job. He has a big mouth and he likes to use it. He won’t apologize for being brash. He doesn’t care if liberals see things his way or not. He’s determined. He’s focused on making America a better place than she was under Barack Obama. And he’s winning. Check out Nancy’s letter to her immoral peers… Pelosi issues rebuttal to GOP talking point in Dear Colleague letter: “The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.” https://twitter.com/JaxAlemany/status/1196506422651039745?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196506422651039745&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reactions: The revolutionary war was fought bc of ppl like her.

Confirmed: No Quid Pro Quo, No Bribery, No Extortion, Impeachment Witnesses Say [Watch]

Should be game over. Period. But it won’t be…

Just like everyone assumed, Democrats have nothing on Trump. This entire impeachment charade was an attempt to, once again, damage a duly-elected president’s chances of winning re-election in 2020. Will this latest news move the needle with regard to how the mainstream media reports? Will they start giving Trump a fair shake? Maybe even begin to realize that Congressional Dems are bad people who seek to crush POTUS? Probably not. It should happen. But it won’t. And why? Because Donald John Trump is far more evil than Adolf Elizabeth Hitler. And that’s the way certain people will always see it. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was no quid pro quo, no bribery, and no extortion. WATCH: [email protected] completely deconstructs the Dems’ case with her questioning. “Schiff got the facts wrong” is turning into an evergreen phrase. Morrison & Volker agree no quid pro quo, no bribery, no extortion. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 https://twitter.com/TCPigott/status/1196955642868719617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196955642868719617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion A great day for Republicans, a great day for our Country! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1196958035127783427?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196958035127783427&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?)
