Sessions versus Lynch: Who Cares?
I think the summary is “Lynch is black and Sessions is a southern racist.”
HOWEVER, under Lynch
1) Fergusan happened, Black Lives Matters happened, and zero federal prosecutions for unarmed people of any color being killed by police officers.
2) She met with the high profile spouse of an FBI criminal investigation subject, was publicly offered a job by that same subject, and apparently her DOJ staff was more concerned with “rising in the ranks” than supporting FBI investigations about the Clintons with standard tools like “convening a grand jury”.
3) Under Lynch’s reign, federal prison populations continued to incarcerate citizens at insane rates. Specifically,
Number Of People Serving Time For Drug, Violent, Property, and Other Offenses In US Prisons
“Almost 50% (92,000 prisoners) of sentenced federal prisoners on September 30, 2015 (the most recent date for which federal offense data are available) were serving time for drug offenses (table 10) (appendix table 6). An additional 36% of federal offenders (67,500 prisoners) were imprisoned for public order offenses, including 30,200 (16% of all federal prisoners) for weapons offenses and 14,900 (8%) for adjudicated immigration crimes. While 53% of sentenced state prisoners were serving time for violent offenses, 7% of federal prisoners (13,700 prisoners) were serving sentences for violent crimes.
“Among female federal prisoners, 59% were serving sentences for drug offenses, compared to 49% of males. A larger proportion of white prisoners in federal prison (42%) were serving time for public order offenses on September 30, 2015 than blacks (32%) or Hispanics (37%). More than half of black (51%) and Hispanic (58%) federal prisoners in 2015 were convicted of drug offenses.”
My point? I’m totally willing to give anyone other than a “Clinton Supporting Democrat” the damn job. Maybe with that “scary R” after their name, the “Ds” will actually GIVE A SHIT again instead of using good marketing to cover bad policy problems.senz, avaistheone1, 7wo7rees and 12 othersem77, OCMI, Sadie, PADemD, , Doremus Jessup, djean111, bemildred, daleanime, Bearian, nenagh, azurnoir like this
