Common Sense from DC? Holder: 'Broken' Justice System Needs 'Sweeping' Changes, Mandatory Minimum "Draconian"!

Quote:"Attorney General Eric Holder called for “sweeping, systemic changes” to the American judicial system on Monday, urging “a frank and constructive dialogue about the need to reform a broken system.”

As part of that effort, the Justice Department will no longer list drug quantities in indictments of certain low-level drug offenders, allowing defendants who lack ties to gangs, violence and large-scale drug trafficking organizations to avoid harsh mandatory minimums, Holder announced during the Monday speech before the American Bar Association."

"Holder was even more direct in his ABA speech, calling mandatory minimums "draconian" and asking Congress to reform a system which can “breed disrespect” for itself.

“When applied indiscriminately, they do not serve public safety. They –- and some of the enforcement priorities we have set –- have had a destabilizing effect on particular communities, largely poor and of color. And, applied inappropriately, they are ultimately counterproductive,” Holder said."

Good news for a change, this current system is out of control. These are substance abuse and social issues - not something low level offenders should be jailed for.
It looks as if the failed "war on drugs" is finally collapsing under the weight of it's own unsustainability.

if harsh sentences are taken away

Cops will not have leverage to turn
their targets into snitches

how are they to turn women into prostitutes ?


war on drugs ?



let's see

big pharma creates and manufactures drugs

plants grwo naturally and are called drugs

the D.O.J. outlaws drugs

then people become criminals for having drugs



Hey ,, heh heh , it's a self manifesting clusterfuck that has

humane reasoning behind it


I see nothing wrong here


Red peoples had no war on drugs

must be the invaders made it up for themselves to screw themselves
with .


I'm loving it

Holder is out there ,,,,

he doesn't understand that Society has to punish itself .

it's a God thing


Punisher God to Punish his chosen .


why fix what works ?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

holder's idea of broken is not the normal one.

remember the DoJ PAID to bus people in and organize pro-trayvon martin / anti-george zimmerman rallies. holder has also made statements re: taking guns away from US citizens before he was appointed AG.

there is nothing sensical or logical coming out of this assclown's orifices. haven't "you" aliens checked for intelligent life in him and found it lacking? i mean, how else can one explain his getting a cabinet level positon?

What's the next phase? Will they allow us to use whatever drugs in whatever quantities we desire so that they save 'mo money?
