    Maybe Kandahar would like to step in and takes someone's place? It's not like we haven't seen enough 7-11 store videos of black men jumping over the counter and brutalizing the employees. Someone want to try and convince me they didn't do it?

    Why am I "enamored" with criminals? Because they are citizens.
    can I clarify, just to understand your tree hugging rubbish.

    So a guy robs a bank, with a gun. Does 15 years and gets out.
    2 weeks later
    he then rapes a woman at knifepoint, does 15 years, gets out.
    then, two week later
    he is picked up selling crack on a street corner.

    the courts should in no way shape or form take into account his priors when sentencing him?

    really? thats just beautiful, poetic even.
    and we wonder whats wrong with our great country,
    people like you get to vote is what angers me more than anything else

    not because they're black or hispanic, necessarily, but because they're poor.

    Re: Supreme Court orders California to release tens of thousands of prison inmates

    When the inmates outnumber the staff to such a high ratio, inmate care goes out the barred window. Any inmate taking doctor prescribed medicine will have to wait months for the pill testers to get around to their bottle every time that a refill is needed. Then, after the Rx has been certified, the guards will stick it on a shelf somewhere and say that they can't find it when the prisoner asks "where are my pills".
    Those that happen to require immediate medical attention will be ignored. If your appendix is busting, that's curtains for you, along with many other preventable deaths.

    That is a violation of section 8 of the US Constitution.

    When you have 6 men sharing a 5x10 foot cell it's a violation of section 8.

    When you have prisoners that are starving to death because a bigger inmate is taking their food everyday it's a violation of section 8.

    When you have mentally unstable inmates not being cared for, you guessed it, a violation of section 8.

    When you have guards playing Gitmo, it's a violation.

    Many, many more, such as prisoners getting shanked in the back and being ignored. Many being murdered, maimed, etc.

    The Supremes are right. The violations in any prison system with too few guards, medical staff, and pill testers for the inmate population will result in barbaric medieval conditions every time. The general free population's desire to hear about inmate rape has always puzzled me. It's almost like we think that that should be part of the punishment. Sickening.

    The judge doesn't sentence you to Abhorrent misery, only time.

    That's a buncha crap, too. If your butt winds up arrested and getting tried for a crime, you're most probably guilty.

    And, it's unfortunate that the SC looks at it that way. If convicts don't like the way they're being treated, then they shouldn't break the law.

    The crime rate in the black community is high, because of the Leftists constantly making excuses for the victicrats.

    So the legal has it out for the poor? Then I find it telling that the left seems to rely on the judicial system to get almost everything it wants, while impuning it as bigotted.

    Maybe if black parents just taught their children right from wrong, and the black community listened to Cosby instead of Jackson/Sharpton, we could actually see some improvement. It's not like they're incapable.

    The Leftists and the government replaced the black parents a long time ago.
