Americans better hope that our second amendment rights are upheld if Senator John Cornyn is successful in reaching across the aisle to help Obama pass The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (S.2123). This legislation if passed would release thousands of criminals back on the streets to appease the Left’s desire to reduce “mass incarceration”. The minorities do represent a greater percentage of the prison population than in the population at large. The Progressives would have you believe this is because of biases within the legal system (rather than the more likely reason; policies forwarded by the federal government that have destroyed the family and social structure in America-especially within the minority communities). Using this unproven premise, the Progressive on both sides of the aisle are pushing hard to release large numbers of prisoners early in an effort to create a more equitable justice system (aka social justice).
Senator Cornyn stated, “This is a statement that is not just symbolic, but actually shows that you care about people. It doesn’t hurt to show some empathy.” Try telling that to Erveena Hammonds and her two daughters who were recently murdered in Columbus, Ohio after their alleged killer was released early from prison because Congress passed the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010. Oh, I am sorry, you can’t tell them anything; they are dead. To learn more about this terribly misguided attempt to create social justice, click on this link.
3 E Reality Check
While a mass release of prisoners would indeed release a large number of minority prisoners, it would also signal to those prisoners and to society at large, you can do the crime, but may not have to serve the time. This is a total melt-down of our social order; a total social INJUSTICE. If you happen to be a victim of one of these early release prisoners, it is an even worse social INJUSTICE. Further, you should have noticed while reading the article, that this is just a ploy by both sides to garner the votes of the potentially soon-to-be-released prisoners. How sad is this that our politicians, who have to know the danger of a mass release of prisoners, would be willing to do so just to gain votes.
