Criminal Justice Reform
If you live in a sanctuary city (see list below), then your rights of equal protection have been violated. In effect, you are a second-class citizen. Moreover, you are a victim of institutional racism. Sadly, the very people who claim to want to help you are hurting you.
While President Trump has passed the First Step and Second Chance Acts which release inmates from egregious prison sentences, then allows them to get meaningful jobs, some bureaucrats, mostly Democrats continue incarcerating blacks in record numbers, and wrongfully incarcerating other Americans.
When you look at cities like San Francisco where Kate Steinle was shot and killed by an illegal, or Philadelphia where illegals are freed for the same crimes for which citizens are arrested, you begin to understand the hypocrisy of Democrat elected officials.
Democrats control the political system in most big cities. Generally, the mayor is a Democrat, as are most city councilmen or aldermen, and other elected officials. The judges are mostly Democrats, as is most of law enforcement. So if there is a problem in the system, Americans know who owns the system.
Democrats pretend to help black citizens. Yet, they created a criminal justice system that incarcerates blacks in astounding numbers. In almost all cases, so-called sanctuary cities won’t charge illegals with crimes. Thus, the city avoids alerting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to issue a detainer. A detainer requires a city to keep an illegal in jail until ICE arrives to deport the criminal back to his or her country of origin. Citizens are not afforded such luxuries, nor should they be. But you can’t have a two-tier justice system, and certainly not one that favors illegals over citizens.
In a project funded by August Busch III, The Black Sphere, Unhyphenated America, and Tea Party Community polled citizens of Philadelphia on criminal justice reform. The project outline, results and comments are below.
Below are a few responses.
The number of responses was detailed above. But there are interesting things to note about a few of
For example, #7 is an obvious Trump supporter.
#23 noted the lack of sanctuary in Philly, texting “2-4 dead every day!!”
Next, #196 texted that the Philadelphia DA “needs to go”, and #216 agreed.
More interestingly, #212 is clearly a Trump supporter.
#212 is another obvious Trump supporter, and #213 recognizes other potential criminal justice violations.
#215 agree with many respondents that Philly needs a new DA
