We are the most efficient at prosecuting crime. Thats how I see it. People make their own poor choices right?? Free will and all. Looks like I need to direct some of my money into the prison industry again, grab some of them nice dividends.

What has the incarceration rate got to do with anything? Are you suggesting that if there are too many criminals , society should accept it and let some people off? If so, you sound as radical as the last administration.

It's only a crime because we say it is a crime. That is it. There is no reason to put non-violent people behind bars.

Sessions is reversing all the progress we've made!


You've nailed it there. Isn't it great!

So you agree with the US having the world's highest incarceration rate? That's not the land of the free at all.


Lol, the land of the free does not mean you are free to commit crime. Good lord.

Don't break the law and you are as free as a bird.

Your argument is like saying if the cancer rate keeps going up, we should stop trying to find a cure for it.

Crime? No. Jailing non-violent citizens because we don't like their passtimes DEFINITELY.

It wasn't too long past that alcohol was illegal (prohibition) but the people rose up and won that battle.

So you are saying the government is correct on things that you agree with then?

Nonsense. If you don't like a law work on changing the law. Sessions job is to enforce the law. It would be a dereliction of his duty to turn a blind eye to crime. God forbid you ever get your way and realise a country where only violent crime is punished.

Yeah then we'd have much lower incarceration rates and people would be free to do whatever they wanted as long as it didn't effect others negatively. MAN the HORROR!

Like American children are recently questioning. Why is it wrong for me to lie and break laws if the president and friends can do it. So, I hope you are correct and those criminals are put in their own jails soon.

Nope. I am saying that the law needs to be enforced. Those laws are what society has agreed upon through a democratic process. Not enforcing laws goes against what the people want, whether you personally like it or not.

Lying is not against the law if not under oath. What crimes have been committed by the President and 'his friends'?

The horror is that you think non violent crime does not affect others.

No. Those laws are a result of a racist policy from a crook President. We have Nixon's recordings that show that the War on Drugs was ENTIRELY a policy directed at liberals and black people. Go learn your history. Just because it is a law, doesn't mean it is just. Slavery was legal at one time too.

Apparently the person who gets robbed is not affected.

How does someone doing drugs privately effect you?

I read the source you posted quite thoroughly. One of the primary concerns which is what brought this into scope was Holders policy of not disclosing the quantities of drugs, especially for trafficking size quantities if they were non violent or not the leader of an organization or gang. Well # that.

If you are peddling a kilo of coc aine or heroin, you are tied to a criminal organization that does participate in violent acts as well as contribute to the violent acts that spring out from the distribution of these quantities of drugs to the population at large.

Take away that subtle feeling of impunity, and even those non violent dealers will think twice before participating in organized crime.
