Skip to comments.Former Congressman: Obama Plans to Release Minorities from Prison
Posted on 02/12/2014 5:07:33 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather
A former Congressman has accused President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of a racial ulterior motive in a massive early prison release planned for up to 10,000 drug dealers.
Ernest Istook, a former U.S. Congressman and writer for the Washington Times, pointed out on his radio program that Obama claims minorities usually get longer terms than whites, so he wants to shorten their time served. He says letting them out of prison early will save taxpayers money.
Most of the prisoners were convicted for crack cocaine violations, almost always for dealing or possession with intent to sell. Istook went on to say, It's like what President Obama claimed about marijuana, namely that enforcing anti-drug laws is unfair to minorities. When minorities commit a crime more often than other groups, rather than trying to fix behavior, Obama screams racism and says we shouldn't enforce that law.
In a January interview with The New Yorker, President Obama claimed that US drug law enforcement punishes a select few. Obama opined, We should not be locking up kids or individual users for long stretches of jail time when some of the folks who are writing those laws have probably done the same thing. The President insisted that the current drug laws unfairly target young minorities and that there is an inherent racism built into our criminal justice system. Middle-class kids dont get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do, Obama said. And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.

And that idiot Holder will be sitting outside the prison gates registering them to vote. These corrupt bass turds.
Even more insidious is that Obama will violate the Constitution by forcing states to release all the blacks that are in state prisons on state charges for drugs like crack cocaine.
Another of those little items saved for after the last election that can affect him.
Did you ever think that America could degenerate to this level of crime, sleaze and corruption ???
At each opportunity Obama does the wrong thing.
Just when people who use illegal drugs like cocain, speed, pot, LSD and crack should be thrown in prison, Obama seeks to set them all free.
Must be a Muslim thing.
“Iran has pardoned 100 political prisoners in an attempt to appease the country’s opposition and reduce tensions seven months before parliamentary elections.”
users aren’t the same as dealers.
Will this happen after he takes our 2nd Amendment rights away?
Not to sound paranoid, but it is almost like every action Obama takes is designed to pi$$ off Freepers.
Where’s the “satire” warning? I’m looking. Not there. Nope, not there either. OH DEAR GOD! This is real!
Obama is the most racist president in history.
Right out of the commie playbook. Pile one outrage upon another, it is designed to induce insanity in a normal person. Turn off the news, it’s going to be nothing but bad.
This man is the Antichrist.
Or enlisting them in a "national security force" to fight obama's domestic enemies.
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." - Barack Obama, July 2, 2008
Beat me to that one. Has there been a large purchase order for all sizes of brown uniforms?
Don’t care the person or the party, being from MA and one that reads the news every day I can pretty much declare now that I will NEVER vote for a black politician.
Just NOT worth the risk.
apologies to those offended.....
Agreed. I have become a racist, because I discovered black people hate me more.
