What You Need To Know About Holder’s Drug Sentencing Proposal And The State Of America’s Prison Population

 

 

Prison Policy Initiative

 

 

 

” Holder’s endorsement today is not the first time that he has advocated for drug sentencing reforms. Last August, Holder announced that the Department of Justice would not pursue mandatory minimums for some non-violent drug offenders.  

  The United States, which makes up roughly 5 percent of the world’s population, houses about 25 percent of the world’s prisoners.

  The federal prison system currently has around 216,000 prisoners, a little more than 40 percent of whom are behind bars for drug offenders.

  The chart below (ed. above) , from the Prison Policy Initiative, breaks down just where American prisoners are locked up, and the various crimes with which they’re charged.. “

Tense Moments As California Agents Confiscate Illegal Guns

 

 

CBS Gun Confiscation

 

” CBS News rode along with Special Agent John Marsh of the state’s Department of Justice, as his team prepared to confiscate guns from a man in Stockton, California.

“He’s a felon,” said Marsh, “and he has two handguns still registered to him.”

It’s tense work. The agents are looking for those who are convicted felons or mentally unstable. And they have guns.

The state has a list of about 20,000 such people with 40,000 guns. But because of budget restrictions, there are only 33 agents to find them.

Last year, Harris’ agents seized 2,033 guns. On the night we were out, it took five-and-a-half hours to seize five guns. But with 40,000 guns out there, does it seem like Marsh will never catch them? “Sometimes it feels like we’re treading water,” he answered.

The agents could be close to going under water. About 3,000 new names are added to the list every year.

 

   Do the math , they fall further and further behind , yet the state is about to create a whole new influx of “illegal” guns . While we certainly don’t want the deranged to have guns , the fact that normally law-abiding citizens and their guns are about to make the list explode would seem to make the agent’s already dauntless task damn near impossible . 

   Typical government reasoning … we can’t enforce the laws we already have so let’s pass some more that we will be equally powerless to uphold . 

Jan Morgan Video Documentary: Rampant Injustice

 

 

 

 

 

” This documentary exposes the blatant trampling of the Constitutional rights of Americans during white collar crime investigations by the Department of Justice and the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service .

It is about the increasing number of unconstitutional, para-military, gestapo style raid tactics involving two agencies of the federal government.”

” Republicans Target Attorney General Eric Holder’s Jet Travel”

  “Working off information from a Department of Justice whistle-blower, four Republican lawmakers are seeking information on the use of FBI planes by top DOJ officials, including Attorney General Eric Holder.

  “We believe it is important to determine whether use of the FBI’s aircraft by Attorney General Holder and other senior Department of
Justice officials adheres to relevant statutes and policies, is cost effective, and does not hinder
the operational readiness of the FBI,” the group wrote in a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller.

  “We are concerned that FBI aircraft are used for extraneous business and personal travel by senior DOJ officials, including the Attorney General,” the letter continued. “

Breitbart 

“In the eighteen months since the Operation Fast & Furious investigation began, Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News have never mentioned the Department of Justice’s gunwalking controversy. Every single time Mr. Holder has testified or a major development happened, NBC Nightly News ignored it. Tonight, in their first mention of the scandal–ever–NBC Nightly News and Brian Williams distorted Attorney General Eric Holder’s testimony.”

Could NBC be the champions of water carrying ? 

Stonewall Justice

  This whole business just reeks . To think that our alleged “independent” press is willing to turn a blind on hundreds of government enabled homicides in order to prop up a single politician shames them all and renders their contribution to the public discourse null and void . 

   Thank goodness for the internet and some stalwart bloggers .And a few politicians of integrity .

 

Christian Adams At PJmedia

  “As Rep. Darrell Issa struggles to obtain Fast and Furious documents from Eric Holder’s Justice Department, so does PJ Media.  We made a Freedom of Information request of the DOJ regarding the curious collaboration about Fast and Furious between the Office of Public Affairs (OPA) and the Press Harpy Tracy Schmaler with various leftist blogs.  (Hint: George Soros pays their salaries.)”
