It’s because of Joe Biden that blacks who use cocaine get more time in prison than whites

I think drugs should be legal. They had to amend the Constitution when the federal government banned alcohol, and I don’t see anything different in the Constitution that lets the federal government ban cocaine without also amending the Constitution.

It’s because of Joe Biden that blacks who use cocaine get more time in prison than whites. The New York Times wrote the following about Joe Biden:

Joe Biden on Crime and Mass Incarceration

During the ’80s and ’90s, Mr. Biden helped shepherd a string of bills that transformed the criminal justice system – and, experts say, hurt America’s black communities.

As Joseph R. Biden Jr. makes his third run for the White House, he is being pressed to answer for his role in legislation that criminal justice experts say helped lay the groundwork for the mass incarceration that has devastated America’s black communities.

During the 1980s and 1990s, when Mr. Biden was a senator from Delaware, he and other leaders of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee helped fashion a string of bills that overhauled the country’s crime laws.

Among the most significant were: the Comprehensive Crime Control Act of 1984, which established mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses; the 1986 Anti-Drug Abuse Act, which imposed harsher sentences for possession of crack than for possession of powder cocaine; and the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which was essentially a catchall tough-on-crime bill.

That New York Times article links to this other New York Times article, which says:

‘Lock the S.O.B.s Up’: Joe Biden and the Era of Mass Incarceration

Now, more than 25 years later, as Mr. Biden makes his third run for the White House in a crowded field of Democrats – many calling for ambitious criminal justice reform — he must answer for his role in legislation that criminal justice experts and his critics say helped lay the groundwork for the mass incarceration that has devastated America’s black communities. That he worked with segregationists to write the bills — an issue that recently dominated the political news and seems likely to resurface in Mr. Biden’s first debate on Thursday – has only added to his challenge. So has the fact that black voters are such a crucial Democratic constituency.

And don’t forget Joe Biden’s gun free zones school bill that resulted in kids dying in school shooting at a 3 time the previous rate.

Biden needs to sit down and breathe into a paper bag.....he must be dizzy what with all the contradictory positions he's been taking on Black crime lately.

Biden's 2020 OpEd promises he is “the progress" at the end of one of the nation's "darkest moments" and is committed to:
<><> establishing a national police oversight commission within 100 days of taking office.
<><> to implement real community policing
<><> to ensure that every police department in the country undertakes a comprehensive review of hiring, training, and de-escalation practices,
<><> suggests Congress should take action immediately to outlaw chokeholds,
<><> to stop the transfer of weapons of war to local police forces, improve oversight and accountability, and create a model use-of-force standard.

My, my how Biden changes with the times.....his motto is "forget what I say.....just go with the flow."

In May 1991, then-Sen Biden hastened to the strong defense of cops and authored a bill that provided greater protections
to cops accused of misconduct. Biden’s “Police Officer’s Bill of Rights Act” strengthened protections for accused officers.
<><>The Biden law streamlined all police misconduct investigations nationwide, so that every department followed identical standards.
<><> The Biden bill restricted when and how police misconduct investigations could take place,
<><> Biden’s bill limited interviews to one interrogator at a time and required accused officers be represented by counsel.
<><> State and city govts were forbidden from questioning an officer’s finances or asking about the finances of their family.
<><> The Biden bill authorized “a cause of action in State court by the officer for recovery of damages,
<><> The Biden bill called for full reinstatement of a l/e agency that materially violated Biden-enumerated Cops' Rights (w/ specified limitations).

A modified version was included in the Biden-Thurmond Violent Crime Control Act of 1991 which was later included in Bill Clinton’s controversial 1994 crime bill. Hilary vociferously endorsed Bill Clinton’s controversial 1994 crime bill, deriding Blacks as “super-predators” in her public comments.

I wonder how many days in prison Hunter spent when he was busted with cocaine and a crack pipe in his rental car? Candace Owens could start a tweet storm asking that question.

I’m no fan of Biden, but this would have made black neighborhoods a little bit safer.

Oh heck yes..Legalize all drugs today! That would be great job security for me because so many others would be getting popped for being wasted on the job.

Yes, the bill was in response to the widespread mayhem born of the crack epidemic, especially in the black community.

And we don't have mass incarceration.

We need it though.

We have repeat offenders that commit ever increasing violent crimes that do little to no time.

The harm to the innocent is immeasurable.

"I think drugs should be legal."

Then you're a commie, Dan from Squirrel Hill. Antifa and BLM agree with you and for the same reasons.

“Jo Jorgensen...the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president told the ‘Fox News Rundown’...’I understand why people voted for Trump,’ she added. ‘They wanted an outsider...’...That would be a wasted vote.”
