    Crime and Violence | Libertarian Party

    Step 3. Get Tough on Real Crime

    The Libertarian Party is the party of personal responsibility. We believe that anyone who harms another person should be held responsible for that action. By contrast, the Democrats and Republicans have created a system where criminals can get away with almost anything.

    For instance: sentences seldom mean what they say. Fewer than one out of every four violent felons serves more than four years. Libertarians would dramatically reduce the number of these early releases by eliminating their root cause - prison over-crowding.

    Since nearly six out of every ten federal prison inmates are there for non-violent drug-related offenses, it's clear that drug prohibition is the primary source of this over-crowding. It has been estimated that every drug offender imprisoned results in the release of one violent criminal, who then commits an average of 40 robberies, 7 assaults, 110 burglaries and 25 auto thefts. Early release of violent criminals puts you and your family at risk. It must stop.
    Meh, you are wrong. But does my political position really matter in this dicussion? No it doesn't.

    If you want to talk about national soverignty, we can go to another thread to discuss it, but this isn't the place.

    Much more likely. The gaming that is going on is intended to instill fear, but the liability of releasing violent criminals is huge. I don't think we really have anything to be worried about with these releases.

    You do know that there are more illegals in this country than just "brown" people right? Way to play the race card. As for being illegal, yes, they are. They are just as much of a criminal as anyone else that commits fraud and tresspassing and BnE. What happens when Americans do that? Why aren't Americans being released with this order? Why just illegal aliens?
